    Lost and Found (October)

    Post by Leonardo on Sat Oct 26, 2013 3:23 am

    ((Continued from here: Misery in Paradise))

    Summer was over much to Leo's dismay. He liked the summer. Now it was fall. The air was getting colder and Leo found running through the cities roof tops to be harder with the wind hitting him in the face. The sewers were also colder too, time to get more blankets and hot drinks.

    It had been four months sense the mousers attacked and April was kidnapped. They stayed at April's place longer then he would have liked, though April didn't mind and was actually happy to have them there. But she was moving into a new building and they had to find their own place.

    Leo went back into the sewers along with pepper and the occasional help from his brothers. They looked for a new living space and finally found one. It was bigger then their old place. More room to move around in.  You could tell everything was really old too. It was an old subway station. there was even indiviual rooms for them to make bedrooms out of.

    Once they found the place. Don worked on making it secure and the others started bringing in their things from the old lair into the new one. Beds, the couch, and other things. Leo also helped with wiring the place up for lights and heat. April was a big help too, gathering things that they would need. Of course she wouldn't leave the house with out one of the turtles following her, and she never left her apartment at night.

    Once things were finally settled. Leo took Pepper back to the cabin to get away from things for a while. He also wanted to take advantage of the remaining warm weather to swim and walk through the woods.

    Then they returned to the lair in time to help Mike decorate everything in ghost and plastic spiders. Leo wasn't too thrilled with the idea of decorating, but if it made his brother happy then he would help.

    Things were going good for the turtles. No threats, no attacks. and Leo even got back in touch with Serenity.

    Serenity wanted to have a halloween/birthday party for Gabe and Raph. Leo wasn't too sure how either guys would take that, but he told her that they would all be there. Now he just needed to find a costume to wear.

    A lot had happen to Mikko in the past four months. She had healed nicely though she would have a scar across her neck for the rest of her life. It matched the one across her face nicely. Just more battle wounds.

    She had taken her training with the foor much more seriously. She moved up in ranks at the school and was now training with weapons. She chose the Kama as her weapon. She practiced with wooden ones at first, but grew tired of that and wanted to try out the real thing. She was given her weapons two months into her weapon training*.

    Her tattooing was becoming dangerous and she had to quit. Too many gang members were coming in and threatening her and the business. Rumor was that she was going to be fired. So, she quit her job and packed up all her things.

    She didn't quit doing her art though. Mikko started painting and selling her them on the internet. She also started to take commisions from businesses. So she still had money coming in and she could work at home, which was good because she was able to spend more time with Travis.

    During the day she spent her time at home. Or taking Travis out shopping or to the park, at night she trained with the foot, and after that, she slipped on her baby doll mask and took to the streets. She hunted down Turks. With her new weapons and training it was easy to take out the gang members. It was fun even. But her goal was to get Jencko.

    She was slashing through thugs to get to the boss. Trying to draw him out. But night after night, he was a no show.

    Mikko never stood out too late, she didn't want Ryan to get suspitious. and she didn't go out every night. she enjoyed staying in with Ryan and Travis.

    This morning Mikko was still in bed. She had a late night. But all her things, her weapons and mask, were locked safely away. Travis was still sleeping and Mikko was taking advantage of that. It was a rough night, she was not ready to get out of bed.

    Living with Remey and Marley was awesome. They watched each others kids and was over all doing very well together. Laz got a job in the city as a body guard for a very posh club, which got him close and personal with many celebrities. And it didn't hurt that he got paid top notch. But he worked at nights. So during the day he could spend time with Ivy and Aeris. He loved having pickniks with them on the sand and building castles with his little girl.

    He would also visit Lexi often. Knowing sign language. He was able to start teaching Phin, Lexi and Raph how to sign. Don was very busy with the new lair and all and Laz was happy to pick up the slack.

    Him and Remey also started teaching their girls how to fight. It was a dangerous world out there and the boys didn't want their woman to be defencless.

    It was morning now and Laz was up making coffee and some eggs. He always got up early to go for a run by the waters edge. He had his jogging suit on and was preparing a juice to bring with him on his run. The sun was out and the air was brisk but not cold. Perfect for a run.

    Bishop had always been an early riser. Mostly because he never slept. His body had no need for sleep. He kept himself busy through the night with little projects. Over the course of a few months he had come up with a new chemical drug. It was a form of heroine. Injected into the skin and highly addictive. More addictive then any other drug on the market.

    The problem was it killed too quickly. Ate the body from the inside out. It wouldn't do to kill so quickly. He needed it to be slow so more people would take the drug. There was high prices for such a drug, and Bishop would sell it to the highest bidder, once it was perfected of course.

    He was also keeping track on his two other projects. Pepper and Hun. They both had been mutated . pepper went a little crazy, but Hun's body took to the mutagen well. He was faster, stronger, and healed quickly. The only side effect Hun complained of having was he was hungry all the time. So Bishop would have to tweek the mutagen and try again.

    He had gathered his things to visit his main project. Experiment X07. Or as Lexi had taken to calling him, Phoenix.

    He headed to the beach house and parked his car. He got out with his medical kit and walked up to the door. Hopefully Lexi was awake and Raph was out of the house. He wanted to get in and get out. He knocked loudly on the door then waited.

    It had been one heck of a couple of months for Rini. And for Don for that matter. They found a new place to live and Rini quickly got herself a job at a vet clinic. Then her life would forever be changed. She got a call oneday from child services. They asked her to come in, that they had something important to talk with her about.

    Rini had no idea what they could want with her, she had no children and didn't know any children. She went to the office and talked to a woman named Linda. Linda told her that Rini's friend, Ai. Had passed away. And in her passing had left Rini with her child, Tomo.

    The news hit Rini like a brick wall. It took her a moment to grasp what was happening. Grasp that her long time friend was dead, and grasp that she was about to become a mother.

    It was a long process. And of course she talked to Don about it. She had to show proof of living space and job. April helped out with that. and after a month and a half, Rini got baby Tomo. The little girl was only seven months old.

    Again with April's help. Rini was able to get everything Tomo would need. And a little dumpster diving helped as well. But Tomo was set up with a crib and toys and dipers. Everything she would need. And Rini worked extra hard to provide for her new daughter.

    It was morning now. And Tomo had woken. Rini quickly grabbed her, not wanting her to wake the whole lair. She changed Tomo and was now feeding her in the kitchen area. Rini was tired. But she felt blessed. and was thankful that Tomo came into their lives.

    Things have finally calmed down for Donatello.  They had a new home and even though that meant more work for him, he gladly took it over what he endured about four months back.  Everything was pretty much back to the way it was, despite what happened.  

    Except for Rini.  After recent events, Don was very protective of his love.  Being away from her for just three days would have driven him mad if he didn't have other things to keep his mind occupied.  He would never let her go far, but then Rini found a job.  Luckily Don had other things to keep him busy and that was resuming his work with helping Phin communicate with the rest of them.

    Unfortunately, his nephew wasn't around much because Raph had decided to move in with Lexi, so he only visited a few times a week.  Sometimes more if 'family duties' called for it, but Don completely understood why Raph moved out.  He had a new family now and Don was happy for him.  Maybe even a little envious in a way because he knew he could never have a child with Rini.  Not with his own DNA, anyway.  It was probably for the best.

    But then a miracle happened and Don couldn't be more thrilled.  Another girl came into their lives.  Tomo was a seven month-old little girl whose mother had passed away.  So Don and Rini adopted her and raised her as their own.  Now Don felt that their little family was complete.




    Don was in his brand new lab early this morning.  He was back in the IT business since he knew both he and Rini would need to work to provide for their new addition.  As much as he appreciated it, he didn't want April to do everything for them.  Especially paying for the many expenses having a child would include.

    Right now, however, Don's job was running a security scan.  Being more open than the old lair, this one needed the extra help in keeping them safe.  Don liked the new lair, though.  It gave them more room for the ever-growing family and the bedrooms were much bigger, too.

    Raph had been the most content he has in the longest time after his family found a new place to live. He enjoyed helping to get things set up, even though he decided that he wouldn't be staying there. He was going back to the beach house with Lexi and Phin. He really liked it there, though sometimes they would get people over he wasn't wild about.

    His bond with Phoenix was getting stronger every day. He was really into the father-role by now and took it to heart. He would do anything he had to to keep his son safe. And Lexi was as much of a part of that as anything. God, he loved that woman. Things were going pretty great between them and when things got a little tense, he just thought of Phoenix and that brought him back to what really mattered.




    It was too damn early to deal with anything this morning. Raph was sleeping peacefully next to Lexi when a loud knocking on the door sounded. Raph was up in a flash, ready to throttle anyone that woke him up this early or even KILL them if they woke his son up. With a growl, he got up from the bed and stormed out of the room, crossing the main room then went to open the door. He was in the mood to give whoever it was an earful.

    "Yeah, whaddya wa--" Then he froze, seeing the tall, dark man standing in front of him and his groggy gaze went to a full-blown glare. "YOU!"

    It didn't take long for someone to answer the door. And it was the turtle. Great. He was hoping this would be easy but of course not. Bishop adjusted his dark glasses and looked at Raph with a smirk.

    "yes it is I. I don't have time to chat I'm afraid. Very busy. I just need to do a quick check up on my project and i'll be out of your hair...So to speak."

    Of course Bishop knew it wouldn't be that easy. There would probably be a fight, and things would get messy. He sighed in frustration at the thought. Bishop was starting to think that prahaps giving X07 to Lexi was a mistake. Of course he knew that she would take good care of his project. Though both Lexi and Raph had to learn, that just because they were taking care of the baby for him, did not mean that they owned the child. No. X07 was still Bishop's property. And therefor, property of the government.

    At first staying at April's apartment had felt as if they were intruding. Once more it was all the juggling of her normal routine that he saw which made the Rat feel guilty. There was also the fact that Casey was still recuperating at that point, and this all combined to make Splinter feel very protective of the pair. There were several nights when he could be found asleep near their bedroom door, for instance, staff cradled in his arms and ready to be used on any intruders who should happen to enter. Yes, their first human friends - April O'Neil and Casey Jones - held an important place in his heart, and he wanted them to be happy and healthy.

    And speaking of happy - though he could see the fear in April's eyes when they finally did leave the apartment - there was also a flash of something between the two humans as he was turning to close the front door behind him. A whisper of the 'old' Yoshi in him knew that flash; he didn't give the thought away with a blush, but he was happy for them in return all the same. He remembered how that 'flash' had gone between Shen and himself, and wished the two humans well as the door clicked behind his back.

    __________________________________________________


    This morning the bed of blankets in his room was harder to get out of - popping his head up out of them had meant meeting a chill in the air that was bracing and unwelcome all at once. In a way it reminded him of many of the early mornings he'd had after finding the Turtles. After they had all been mutated. Learning the hours during which to safely scavenge had been a literal eye-opener when it came to the temperature.

    So he hissed and stood - four blankets covering him from head to toe - as he padded over to the homemade kotatsu* Donatello had thoughtfully put together for him. Switching the heater on, the old Rat waited patiently as the air beneath the heating table's blankets warmed up. As he needed, he took off first one and then another excess blanket, folding them and leaving a pile next to his right side. One more thick blanket off his shoulders and the pile was large enough to lean on; Splinter smiled widely at this.

    Normally he would get up and go to the kitchen to get some hot tea, but today he opted to stay put and nap for around a half hour longer. Tail lazily swishing back and forth under the heated blanket, the Rat dozed off once more.


    * The Kotatsu is a heating source used in a Japanese household, where a low table has a heat source located under it, and two blankets on top to trap the warmth inside. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kotatsu The blankets of Splinter's kotatsu currently have bronze and silver leaves stitched all over them, as it is getting to the colder months of the year.

    Michelangelo did not mind the downtime that his and Leo's recovery required.  His own injuries were significant compared to Leo's and the youngest turtle was healed before his brother, so he spent this time with comic books, video games and Fraya....and of course, annoying the snot out of his brothers.  He didn't mind living with April. In fact, he was enjoying the fact that they got to spend nearly every day with their friend, but soon they were back in the sewers. Fortunately once your senses became used to the unpleasant smells of the city's underbelly, you became immune to it. On the bright side, Leo had scouted around and stumbled upon an old train station. The best part, train carts! They were easily converted into nice cozy bedrooms!


    Mike kept grasping at hope that Raphael would come back home, but that never officially happened.  His girlfriend was having difficulties with the city after her last run in with mousers and thugs, so she and Raph had opted to move back to the beach house. To say that Mike was upset that his brother was moving out was an understatement. The four of them were supposed to be together forever, or so he thought. Even with their girlfriends, the bond was supposed to stay that strong. Bad things often happened when they weren't a team. Mike understood that Lexi was scared and Raph wanted to be with her, but there had to be a way for them to all be together, right? The young turtle had suggested that they all live at the beach, but of course that idea was shot down real fast.


    At least Raph came for regular visits, and sometimes Lexi and Phin would join, but he could always tell that the woman was on edge, expecting Mousers to burst through the walls and go for her and Phoenix again. It was much easier on them to go and visit the beach house where everyone would be more comfortable. Yeah. Mike understood the situation, it just broke his heart that the clan had to be separated.


    Once Leo had recovered and returned from his 'vacation' with Pepper, their intensive training began. Mike quickly realized how out of practice he was. The plush life had pampered him, and now getting back into their daily habits left him sore and bruised. It didn't take him long to get back into the swing of things... even dozing off during meditation, or slipping out his PSP when he should have been listening to Splinter and Leo's instructions. Yeah, everything was getting back to normal. Well, as normal as it could be, with one part of their family missing.








    It was early morning... much too early for the youngest turtle to wake with no assistance. He was curled beneath a lair of thick blankets, snuggled close to Fraya. His loud snores disrupting the quiet atmosphere, loud enough to wake the dead. A fortunate thing that Fraya was immune by now...

    Fraya had become very protective of Mike after his incounter with Hun. Where ever he went she had to go too. Luckily they hadn't run into any problems the past few months. They found a new home and it was cozy, to be honest it took a while to get use to living under ground, but Fraya adjusted and now it felt like home.

    She tried to get a job but no one was hiring her! So, she did the only other thing she could think of doing. She acquired a computer and started to draw. She drew all day long and sold her drawings to people over the internet. Some people would even commission her for special drawings. So finally she was making some money to help out around the lair.

    Then a new family member joined. Little Tomo! The baby was so cute and Fraya loved playing with her. And now that they were settled in. She was looking to get herself a puppy. But she had to save up first.

    morning had come too early for Fraya. She snuggled under the covers against Mike. His snoring not bothering her in the least. She was quit the snorer herself. But when her stomach started to growl she began to wake up.

    She opened her eyes and smiled at Mike. She gave him a kiss then unwrapped herself from the covers and Mike before slipping out the bed to find some food.

    After feeding Tomo and changing her, Rini walked over to Don's new lab and peeked her head in. "Are you busy?" She asked as she lightly bounced their little girl. Rini didn't have to go to work today and she was happy for that, it ment she got to spend the whole day with her family.

    "You want some breakfast? Coffee? I can make waffles." She added with a smile.

    "Did I hear someone mentioning waffles?" Fraya asked as she walked passed Rini. "I could use some waffles." She made her way to the kitchen and started to dig around. And that's when she saw it. pumpkin spice muffin mix.

    "Oh hell to the yes. Gonna make me some pumpkin spice muuuuffins!" She sang and started getting all the ingredents together.

    Shredder had laid low for the past few months. He kept tabs on Karai watching her very closely. He knew about her helping the turtles. He never brought it up because he had hoped that she was planing something he didn't know about. But that was turning out to not be the case. To say he was dissapointed would be an understatement.

    He had other issues to deal with though. His men. While most were still feircly loyal a few were starting to form their own outside relationships and there was whispers about them leaving the gang. He had to put a stop to this. And he would do so by setting an example.

    He walked through the halls of his tower looking for his daughter.

    "Where is Karai!? I need to speak to her immediately!"

    He would give the woman one last chance. if she screwed this up there would be punishment in the future.

    In the start, Mondo wasn't too sure if he and Ela were welcomed into the turtles home. They were mostly ignored and he felt they were intruding for the longest time. But he slowly made friends with Mike sharing his love of skateboarding and comic books. and over time he felt more apart of the family.

    He thought about living elsewhere with Ela, but they had plenty of room at the new lair so he and Ela moved in. They shared a smaller room in the back of the place.

    It was early morning and Mondo was not an early riser. He pulled the covers over him tighter and scooted closer to Ela. He heard voices outside of the room, but unless there was food involved he was not getting up.

    Hun had kept himself very busy the past few months. He was dealing with weapon exchange, working closely with Baxter Stockman. The man was working for Shredder and Hun. It was a dangerous game he was playing but so far it was paying off.

    Both men wanted weapons. But Hun was willing to pay more for the product.

    Hun was also busy trying to get his hands on Mikko. He was planing an attack on at the tattoo shop, but then she stopped coming around. Where the hell was Gabe!? He would call the man. But not now. It was too early. Hun knew that Gabe would be sleeping and waking him would only cause the thug to not want to cooperate.

    Gabe would come back to the gang though. Hun had no doubt. The young thug and now father had too much lose if he didn't come back.

    Busy busy busy. That's how Stockman's life was these past four months. He had compleated his own projects. crafting a new bionic arm and eye. the eye was tricky and he had help with that. With that done, he started to work on his bosses projects.

    Shredder wanted better armor. It had to be tough, enough to withstand a rain of bullets. But it had to be light weight and easy to move in. and it had to be quiet. So he had his hands full.

    Hun wanted Guns. Stronger bullets. Hun wanted something that had never been seen before. something that could eaisly go through a cops bullet proof vest. Heat seeking bullets and he wanted the gun light weight and easy to handle.

    It wasn't his usual jobs. He did work on robotics. Weapons were not his specialty. But he decided to combine his robotics knowledge and weapons knowledge together. But he needed help.

    Baxter put out a call to anyone good with weapons and machanics. He needed an assistent who knew what they were doing. He went online and put out a help wanted add on the internet and hoped that someone worthy would respond.

    It was morning now, and he was checking his messages. There was one taker. Someone filled out an application two days ago. A woman, he wasn't thrilled about that. woman were always bringing in some sort of Drama. But she seemed to know what she was talking about.

    He would give her a call after Breakfast. Hopefully Miss Mikko would be right for the job.

    The past four months had been laden with nightmares and anxiety. Lexi was grateful to be back in her old place, and far away from the city. Initially she had feared that her choice to return home would put too much distance between her and Raph, figuring that he would choose to be with his brothers instead of her. It seemed the logical choice, anyway. It wasn't like they were engaged or married... and she doubted that would ever be a possibility. Even if they could tie the knot, she often wondered if Raph would ever want that. He had never even hinted at it before, and there had been instances when he simply wasn't there for her. But this time, he decided to stay. For that, she was grateful but she feared it put a strain on his relationship with his brothers. She could see the annoyance in Leo's features every time she could muster up the courage to visit the lair. Don seemed indifferent, but it was obvious that Mike missed his brother. That certainly made her feel guilty. Splinter seemed accepting of Rapheal's choice, and was always excited to see his grandson.



    Dealing with the stresses of life and the nightmares of her past, she had developed an addiction to painkillers, which were often provided by Ace. It was something she attempted to hide, and struggled to keep a handle on. She was a mother, after all, and needed to keep a level head for Phoenix. She really missed Jake, but now with his biological father back in the picture and knowing that Gabriel wanted to be a father to his son, she had made the difficult decision to sign custody back over to her ex. The choice had broken her heart, but she still got to keep him on weekends, and Gabe would bring him by for regular visits.  



    Lexi was glad to have Laz within walking distance. It gave her reassurance to have her best friend so close. He had always been there for her when Raph couldn't be, and that continued to be the case. She no longer worried about putting a strain on Aeris and Laz' relationship since the girl seemed more confident that she wasn't trying to steal him away.


    As it turned out, Laz knew how to sign and started teaching Phin how to communicate with his hands. Of course the language had to be modified due to Phin's lack of fingers,  and he was still too young to learn a wide 'vocabulary', but at least now he could express the basics. They had planned on having Don work with his nephew, but there was too many gaps in their visits, and when they could, Don was busy with his own life. At first, Raph didn't seem too happy with the new choice in teachers, but unlike his father, Phin adored Laz, and his little face always lit up whenever he dropped in for visits. Lexi always wondered if it had something to do with the fact that Laz had been with her when she had rescued Phin from Bishop's twisted hands, or perhaps it was the kindness that he continued to show the child. Whatever it was, there was no denying just how much the little turtle loved Laz.


    As much as Lexi wanted to remain a 'stay at home mom', her funds were running low. Taking a break from work for almost a year had put a major strain on her resources, and now being responsible for her boyfriend and her son, she saw no way around it. Luckily she hadn't lost her contract, but she begged for more conservative shoots. Modeling swim suits wouldn't bring in the funds that her old profession would, but she was a mother now.





    It was early morning, and Lexi was still sound asleep, Phin curled up between her and Raph. Sometimes he would become restless and come into their bedroom to sleep with his parents. Not that Lexi minded. It always made her feel more content to have him so close. Unfortunately her rare peaceful slumber was interrupted when a knock reverberated from the front door. Her eyes flickered open and she glanced at the spot where Raph should have been sleeping, her heart catching in her throat when the sight of him didn't meet her gaze. Being what he was, Raph shouldn't be answering the door, and she knew he was smart enough not to do so without checking to see who was on the other side. Still, panic overtook her. After carefully throwing a blanket over Phin, she headed into the main room where she saw Raph standing at the open door. But the sight of what stood just right out side the threshold made her blood run cold.


    "What the fuck are you doing here!!" She snapped, frantically reaching for Raph's sai to run him through, but quickly realized that her boyfriend was 'undressed' ...

    Bishop smiled at Lexi when she came into sight. He would try to do his job without a fight. So he calmly removed his dark glasses and tucked them in his coat pocket. He moved his medical kit from one hand to the other and took a calming breath.

    "I am not here to fight, to argue, or to harm anyone in this house. Your son." He started making sure he said 'your son' instead of 'my project.'

    "Your son needs medical attention. a check up. You can't very well bring him to a doctor. and I want to make sure the baby is as healthy as he can be. I'm sure you both are doing a wonderful job taking care of him, but all children need a doctor."

    "What I want to do today. Is see your son, give him his check up, take a blood sample and give him the necessary vaccinations."

    He let that sink in before continuing.

    "I'm aware this might be hard to swallow. But I need the child healthy. I will do everything to insure that happens. If you can not let me see the child and do my job, i'll be forced to come here with my men and take the child back. As it is right now, I have no interest in taking your boy."

    "So. Can I come in?"

    Raphael was about to go flying off the handle! "Your...PROJECT?!  That's my SON you're talking about!"  He was about to say more then Lexi came out, telling Bishop off like he wanted to.  At least none of the commotion had woken Phoenix up.

    Raph was having a hard time believing anything the man was saying.  Bishop was being...nice?  Since when did that bastard not just go around with guns blazing -- taking what he wanted instead of ASKING for permission for anything.  What the fuck???

    Raph held his glare at Bishop even after the man stopped speaking, just flabbergasted by what he just heard.  Bishop had made a concentrated effort to refer to Phoenix as their son after Lexi came around.  What the hell was going on.

    "Hell must've frozen over or somethin'," he finally said, glancing at Lexi then his narrowed gaze moved back to Bishop.  He wasn't glaring anymore, but that didn't mean Raph was letting his guard down.  Bishop did have a point.  His offer wasn't totally out there, but considering what he had done in the past to both Raph and his family, he wouldn't trust the guy as far as he could throw him.

    "You got a lotta nerve, Bishop..."  His voice was calmer now, slowly taking in the offer.  Maybe he did mean good this time.  "IF I let you in, I'm gonna be right there with him at all times.  'Cause I still don't trust you.  You've done so much to me and my family over the years..."

    And he left it hang there, glancing over at Lexi to see what she thinks.

    Bullshit. Complete and utter bullshit!! The more Bishop spoke, the angrier Lexi became. It was hard to process what he was saying due to her level of anger, and it took everything she had to keep from flying into him like a crazed psycho. Bishop 'claimed' to want to help, but there was always a sinister motive behind everything that asshole did. He had made a mess out of Mike, sawed Raph up and removed Phin's vocal cords. His actions had wounded Lexi on an emotional level, and he had also sent his robotic monstrosities after Phin. Lexi had been critically wounded in an attempt to save the baby, and Bishop seemed so content to let her bleed out. She could overlook the damage done to herself, but not the physical disfigurement that Bishop had inflicted upon those she cared about.


    She caught Raph's look, and was completely taken aback by the fact that he was even considering it!! What was he thinking?!? Her hard glare shifted to Bishop once more, conveying volumes of hatred that words could not express.


    "You're not touching my son!!" She seethed. "Go to hell!!" With that, she slammed the door in his face...

    Bishop expected the anger and expected Lexi to turn him down. But, He had given her an option she chose. He would have to take the child back with him. This could get messy.

    He knocked on the door once more.

    "Lexi. Raph." He called out. "One more chance to make this easy. I'm prepared to call my men to come here and take the child back. I know you don't want me to do that."

    After the door slammed, Raph sighed then turned to Lexi. "Look, I don't like it either, but what the hell are we gonna do?  He created him."  Of course he couldn't blame Lexi for slamming the door in the guy's face.  Hell, he wanted to do that before hearing Bishop out.  Just something in his tone seemed sincere this time.  Not that the bastard wasn't a professional manipulator.  But it was different this time.  Raph needed to consider what was best for Phoenix and, as much as he hated to admit it, Bishop was their best option.

    Bishop's threats echoed through the door, and now Raph was trying to convince her that this was the only logical choice. Lexi was prepared to fight. Run. Hide. Whatever the fuck she had to in order to keep Phoenix safe. She would die before Bishop ever hurt him again.


    "Yeah, he created him...but he also mutilated him! And YOU.. and your brother..." She hissed, unable to see that tinge of sincerity that Raph had somehow imagined. She was angry at him for even considering, and wondered if this was all to avoid having to run again. To avoid a fight. But surely he wouldn't sacrifice his son for that. No. He would go down fighting just as she would. Avoiding a fight wasn't in Raph's character, she knew that. For reasons unknown to her, he was okay with this. The mother in her couldn't be, and her own feelings could not be swayed.


    "You better be right about this." She huffed, giving in to Raph, but NOT to Bishop. She would be watching that asshole like a motherfucking hawk. The slightest suspicious move and she would unleash a fury that neither Raph or Bishop had ever seen. Finally, the door swung open so violently that it hit the wall behind it. Lexi's death glare fixated with the one responsible for inflicting so much pain on her and her family.


    "Why the fuck are you suddenly Doctor Do Right?? How can I trust you... and why the fuck do you care if he's healthy?? You certainly weren't thinking about his well being when you ripped the vocal cords from his throat!!"

    When the door opened up Bishop tucked his phone away. He flashed Lexi a smirk. "The child needs a doctor. and i'm the only one able to take care of him. I need him healthy. You need him healthy, that's all you need to know. Now, can I come in? I'm trying to be as accommidating as I can be. You can hold the child the whole time I'm here. You can take a look in my bag if you wish."

    He opened up his medical kit and showed Lexi the stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, supplies for taking blood and two vaccines. There was also some other tools that were normal doctor instruments.

    "See, all normal, harmless things."
