Blind: Part 7Well.
I've finally been allowed out on patrol!
We're on the rooftops of New York.
I can't beleive I managed to get up here!
Ok, so I had help.
It's still amazing!
I've got Donnie on one side of me, Raph on the other, and Mikey and Leo are in front.
They're all acting like big brothers.
It's kind of annoying...
Ok, a lot annoying.
But I can't complain.
It's just so good to feel the air again!
We sit on April's apartment block roof.
I wish I could see the night sky, though.
"I'll, er, go check that April's ok." Donnie stutters.
I hear him scale the wall.
He's come back up quickly.
"Dude, you've got it bad!" I hear Mikey say with a full mouth.
"Hey! When did you get that Pizza?!" I say.
"Just now..." He answers, sounding guilty.
I let it go.
I'm not even hungry anyway.
I feel awkward thoughts eminating from Raph beside me.
I have no idea what to do.
I've never done this before!
Should I take his hand?
Would he pull away?
I have no idea.
He answers my questio
I will be the Shepherd...They tore up our houses.
Looking for gold.
They raided the churches.
Again, just for gold.
Aren't they already?
Why should they take this?
We're barely living on bread.
We can't farm for food.
We can't feed our families.
They're holding huge banquets.
To say the least.
We are but sheep.
Sheep ruled by Wolves.
I seek to become the shepherd.
And that shepherd has a knife...
Blind: Part 6I sit in the chair.
I can't beleive it.
What do I do?!
It's not possible.
He must be crazy!
There's nothing about me that's special...
Nothing for him to like.
I'm just a dead weight now...
I'm not useful to anyone.
I know Raph isn't normally the type to go for dependent girls anyway...
"Peri...?" He says.
I feel him get up from the chair and crouch in front of me.
I have absolutely no idea how to respond to this.
I really truly like him, but...
The very idea that someone likes me...
It just seems alien.
"I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said anything..."
He sounds so sad.
I try to find his shoulders and I rest my hands on them.
"Look, Raph. I really do like you. It's just laughable that you would...well."
"Oh. Ok." He says gruffly, and gives me an awkward hug.
That went better than expected.
He leads me back to the main room and puts me in my corner.
"Move it, squirt! I'm starving!"
"Awww! But Raph..." Mikey whines.
He's already eating. That's good.
"Hey, Mikey. Co
Blind: Part 5I walk to Raph in the corner and sit down.
Everybody else is asleep.
"Raph. You didn't need to be so agressive earlier."
He glares at me. "What's it to you, Donnie?"
"Raph. You really scared Peri. She's had to have Mikey guard outside her door."
He looks at me with wide eyes.
I know how he's feeling.
I just wish he'd talk to her.
"I know how you're feeling. I just wish you'd talk."
He really does need someone.
"Well... I just..."
"If you won't talk to me, then why don't you talk to April."
"No... I just... I don't..."
"Or you could just go to the source of the problem."
"And where would that be, super-nerd?"
"Peri...?" I wince.
I just hope he doesn't kill me too much.
"How do you know about that?!" He snaps.
"Raph, kinda going through the same thing. I know the signs by now."
Blind: Part 4It's been a week now...
I'm glad everyone has been so understanding.
Sensei says only one of my eyes with keep the milky layer that's formed.
My eyes are still my favourite features.
Even if I can't use them anymore.
It's still frustrating, though.
I hate not being able to see people's facial expressions.
I can't even cook anymore.
Shredder would let me take a break from pondweed once a week.
It's been ages since I've had Onigiri...
I stumble through to the familiar smell of leaves.
Sensei's in here.
"What is wrong?" He says, rushing up to me.
He's acting like a mother hen.
"Nothing much, sensei."
"Could you teach me how to cook?"
"Do you know how?" He says doubtfully.
"Yes, but now..."
"I see. What is it that you want too cook?"
"Just Onigiri, sensei. Shredder used to let me have it once a week, but I havn't had it in a while..."
"I do not know if I will be able to teach you how to cook blind, Perianth."
That was di
