The Aftermath: Part 7Raph!
What are you doing standing outside her door at 2am?!
I'm talking to myself.
I should be too.
But I can't sleep.
Plus Emma's sleep talking.
The wall between our rooms is so thin...
I hear every frickin' word!
Just knock on the door.
I go to knock.
"Raph? What do you want?"
I almost fall backwards.
"How did you know I was here?" I whisper.
"You were muttering."
She opens the door.
I try to supress a blush.
I ain't used to seein' her in PJ's!
Especially NOT a cammy... camisole?
Yeah, one o' those strappy tops.
At least she's wearin' long trousers.
"What's wrong?" She asks, leaning against the doorframe.
"I-I just, erm..." I struggle to find an excuse.
To be completely honest, I have n
The Aftermath: Part 6Toby is the most annoying guy ever.
How did he guess so quick?!
And why am I sat up here waiting?
What do I really think I'll achieve?
I sigh and shift a little.
This roof ain't exactly the most comfortable ever...
I've been sitting here for two hours already.
"Bye, Toby! See you tomorrow!"
"Bye, RJ! Just remember what we talked about?"
He chuckles. "Have a nice night."
I jump down from the roof as she closes the door and shifts back into her old self.
"Ah! Raph?! What the actual shell?!"
"Sorry, I got sent back to bring you home again."
Ok, blatant lie.
But I ain't tellin' her that I stayed instead of goin' home.
She'd bring up the whole 'just friends' thing again.
Maybe I WANT to break that promise this time...
"Are you coming, or what?" She says, already halfway up th
The Aftermath: Part 5"You ok?" Donnie asks, looking over at me.
"Yeah." I say, smiling weakly at him.
"Saw you last night. Did you and Raph watch a movie or something?"
I stiffen slightly. "No... there was nothing good on, so I chose mind-numbingly boring instead."
Donnie lets it drop and puts his goggles back on. "How are you doing with the robot?"
"Ok... It would be better if I could find where you hid the blowtorch."
"It's here." Emma announces, coming over and laying it by me.
"How are you doing?" She asks.
"I'm doing fine..."
I really wish that everybody woudl stop asking.
I'm just trying to get my head round what sensei said to me this morning.
It's not true.
It can't be.
Emmatello over there are really starting to bug me.
"Hey, could you two knock it off? Donnie, I thought you were 'really busy'."
Donnie puts Emma down and goes back to work, blushing bright red.
Oh, I hope to god that me and Raph don't get like that.
Oh my god.
I just thought that.
I facepalm instinctively and hit myself
The Aftermath: Part 4So, we walk in after patrol...
And there they are, sleeping on the sofa!
"Dudes!" I whisper, pointing.
It's so adorable!
"Mikey..." Leo warns. "They're fine. Leave them alone."
"But, they're so cute!"
"We know!" Emma says.
I pout. "I just wanted to wake them up..."
"Well, don't." Leo says. "Now, everybody, go to sleep."
I trudge to my room.
It's so unfair!
Leo's just being annoying...
I wake up and sit bolt upright.
Raph's sat right next to me, still asleep.
Under the same blanket.
How am I supposed to keep my own promise?!
"Rhiannon?" Sensei asks, walking in.
"Oh, good morining, sensei..."
"Did you sleep well?"
"I... I guess."
Sensei chuckles. "Though I do not think that Raphael is the most comfortable of pillows."
I cringe and try to
The Aftermath: Part 3"Raphael, Rhiannon, you are to stay behind from this patrol."
I stiffen from shock.
"Sensei!" Raph protests. "I don't want to be stuck down here!"
"You have no choice. I am taking April out for training in the tunnels, you two are to amuse yourselves until we all return."
"Hai, sensei." I say meekly.
"Hai... sensei..." He says.
Somebody's talked to him.
I really do not want to face this...
We both leave and I sit on the sofa.
Raph sits in the corner with a comic book.
Everyone else heads off to where they need to go.
I flick through the TV channels with Leo's Space Heroes remote.
There's nothing good on, so I settle for something that I can easily tune out.
I just feel so...
I think the word is numb.
All that's going through my head is much of a mistake last week was.
I need to get a grip.
"You ok?" He asks gruffly from the other side of his comic.
"Yeah." I say.
"Who do ya think squealed on us to sensei?"
"I don't know. Emma and Donnie wouldn't do that... Probably Leo
