Stormy SeasStorm in my mind.
Crashing waves of thought.
My heart is in turmoil.
Threatening to sink.
Off the starboard bow,
is my fleet of love.
Off the port bow,
is his fleet of drowning
I don't want,
To let my ships go.
I have to do,
what the waves say.
The waves say,

Meet RJ: Part 1"Bye, guys, I'm off to work!"
"Bye, RJ!" Everyone says.
"You sure you're gonna be ok?" Donnie asks.
"Yes! I'll see you soon!"
I walk down the tunnels and shift into a human when I get to the manhole.
"Hey, Toby!" I call, opening the back door.
Where is he?
"Toby?" I call again, going further in.
"You won't believe what's happened to her, though. You'll be amazed!" Toby's voice sounds from the office.

"I swear on my soul."
The Aftermath: Part 15"Yame!"
We all start filing out of the dojo.
"Rhiannon? May I speak with you a moment?"
"You and Raphael?"
"What do you mean?"

"I am not as watchful of Emma and Donatello, but Raphael is more impulsive."
I look up at him, confused.

"Oh, that..." I cringe, trying to keep a flash of heat from my face.
"All I am saying is that you be careful. You are not yet old enough or mature enough-"
"But, Raphael IS impulsive, and tends to let his instincts go before his conscious mind."
"Yeah, I guess..."
"I trust that you will know when to control him."
"Very well, you are dismissed."
I go to leave, then turn round. "Sensei, you don't mind?"
