25 Story Challenge 7: Firsts"You know, Peri, you know you never told me about your first date with Raph."
"You really want to know, Mikey?"
I'm sitting on the sofa with Mikey.
The guys are out on a routine patrol.
They needed RJ to disguise as a Kraang droid.
Me and Mikey decided to take the opportunity to have a night just us.
We haven't for a while so it was great when Leo said they only needed four of us.
Mikey nods and crosses his legs underneath him.
"You really want to know?"
He nods again, stuffing pizza in his face.
"Why do you want to know?"
"Because. I want to know how sweet Raph was."
I give him a look. "How many jokes do you want to create?"
He looks down and grins. "Three or four."
I raise my eyebrow. "Yeah... I don't think I should tell you."
I sigh and rub my temples. "Fine. You sitting comfortably?
25 Story Challenge 6: Baking"Hey, guys?" I say, munching pizza.
"What is it, Mikey?" Leo asks.
"You said that three minutes ago. Find something to do!"
I sigh and hang upside down off the sofa.
"Yeah, but I don't know what to find to do..."
Leo sighs. "Just don't bother me again. This is the best part!"
RJ walks in a few minutes later.
"You ok, Mikey?"
"Yeah, I'm just bored."
"Won't the others play with you?"
"Peri and Raph are at Murakami-san's, Donnie doesn't want to be disturbed and Leo is watchin' Space Heroes."
I look at her hands.
"What's in the bags?"
"Well, you wanna help me put this away, then I'll tell you?"
I nod and get up, following her to the kitchen.
"Right, you do that bag, I'll do this bag." She says, handing me one.
"It's really heavy!" I say, almost falling over.
"Be careful! That's the bag with the eggs in it!"
Together: Part 7I walk out of the block of science buildings, shaking like a leaf.
I managed it!
I don't normally talk well in front of people, but I managed it!
I look round and walk down into an alley.
The sky's getting dark, so hopefully, no one will see me.
"Look what we have here, boys." A man's voice sounds behind me.
I whip round.
No Purple Dragons.
Just a few men looking slightly drunk all ready.
"A little girly who lost her way."
"What say we have a little fun?"
I so wish it WERE the Kraang, Purple Dragons or Foot soldiers right now...
They all start walking towards me, backing me into a corner.
"Stay back!" I warn, taking out a butterfly knife.
The third one falters slightly, but the other two keep walking.
"I like feisty girls, don't you, Kev?"
"Yeah, makes it fun."
I get ready to kick as one of them lunges.
"HEY!" Somebody shouts from the rooftops.
All three men turn.
I use that moment to kick the one nearest me down the alley.
The figure jumps down
25 Story Challenge 5: Kareoke"Guys! Guys guys guys guys guys GUYS!!!" Mikey ssqueals, rushing in.
"What is it, Mikey?" Leo asks, getting up.
"Look what I found!" He says, holding up a game case and a USB microphone.
"Kareoke 3? What is that?" Raph says skeptically.
"It fell through an open grate with the microphone! Can we play it? Please? PLEASE?!"
"Ok, Mikey. Put it on." Leo says.
"Hey, Donnie! Get in here!" I call.
Peri gets up from the pinball machine and sits on the sofa.
"What is it?" Donnie asks, poking his head round the corner.
"Mikey found a new video game." Raph explains, rolling his eyes.
"Kareoke 3? Eh, I won't play, but I'll watch." He sits down by Peri.
"Who wants to go first?" Mikey asks, holding out the microphone.
"No thanks." Donnie says.
"I'm good." I say too.
Then I have an idea.
"What about Raph?"
"No way, there is no way I will ever-"
"I'll bet you're too scared." I say, crossing my arms.
"No! Fine!" He says, snatching the microphone off Mikey. "If I do it, you have to."
Viva La Vida: Leo's DownfallI used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own
Leo had had enough of the guys.
They wouldn't listen to him again.
So he'd broken away from them and told Raph to lead.
Yeah, he knew what happened last time.
But he just had to.
I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!
He'd just managed a great victory.
But of course, he'd shown mercy.
You would have thought Raph would have learnt by now.
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand
He'd been handling him well.
But then Donnie ganged up on him with Raph, too.
Maybe giving Karai mercy hadn't been the wisest move...
Maybe he had
Together: Part 6I stand in Falco's lab.
I found it after days of searching on my lunch break.
Rats still littered the floor, but I took no notice of them.
Striding towards his desk, I rifled through his notes.
His scientific discoveries are amazing...
The ones not involving mutagen, at least.
I gather all the non-mutagen research up and put it in my satchel.
I need to show this to people.
He wanted to be loved.
His research to be found and commended.
He may not have got that in life...
But I can give him recognition in death.
I tear up every other peice of research.
Don't want the Kraang finding this place.
I leave, closing the rotting door behind me and making my way down the wall.
The stairs are collapsing, so I have to take the chameleon's way out.
I drop down and turn into me as a human.
I'll go back to work.
Then I'll find a way to get this recognised.
I'll make his name great.
It's the least I can do.
Standing Outside the Fire: Raph's DemonsWe call them cool
Those hearts that have no scars to show
The ones that never do let go
And risk the tables being turned
Raph liked to think he was strong.
Stronger than his brothers.
He didn't like to show weakness, and was sure he never did.
We call them fools
Who have to dance within the flame
Who chance the sorrow and the shame
That always comes with getting burned
He hated how Donnie stuttered over April.
Or Leo sighing over Karai.
It was weak.
Or so he thought.
Then came the day she crashed into their lives.
But you've got to be tough when consumed by desire
'Cause it's not enough just to stand outside the fire
She made him go just like Donnie and Leo.
Of course, he avoided her.
But that didn't stop him from keeping an eye on her.
That didn't stop him from feeling like he did.
We call them strong
Those who can face this world alone
Who seem to get by on their own
Those who will never take
Our DutyWe swallowed the path home
Because we were hungry,
Though starving is an ongoing
Story, an empty bag
Dancing in the streets,
Full of an unfastened voice
Walking through the house,
Wind unchained, heart admonished.
Heaven fills its eyes, crawls away,
That sleeping boat content to follow
The vacant waves, intervals
Of dying that we dare not interrupt,
And we watch the kind ear shrinking
From our charcoal docks; heaven
With a full stomach crawls away.
This is what we were put here for.
