Well, I've been here for a few days now...
Don't give me that look.
I would escape, but, I have to admit that it's better here.
I don't get shouted at, Celeana isn't constantly at my tail, getting me into trouble with Shredder.
The Turtles are away every night for patrols, so I can sit and think.
I can't escape even then, anyway. 'Splinter' is always one step ahead of me.
Splinter is what they call Hamato.
I guess it's like Shredder and Oroku Saki.
April visits every day, and sometimes at night.
Donnie always stutters and blushes.
She's sat at the other side of the room now, staring at me like a lost puppy.
"What?!" I say angrily.
She jumps and shakes herself.
"Nothing. I was just wondering how you knew my name."
"I can read minds." I roll my eyes. "You shouldn't let me look at you for too long."
I turn away from her, hiding my face and sighing.
I don't want a bunch of questions.
Looks like I am getting questions.
"How are you actually doing? Being here, I mean."
I look up at her.
She looks so pitying.
I hate that.
"Do I have to answer that?" I say coldly, keeping eye contact.
"No. I was just trying to be nice. You look lonely."
Huh. i guess she is genuine.
"I just want to get back to the Foot Clan." I say, keeping my voice in monotone.
She sits, silent.
Thinking of a response, I guess.
"Why would you want to do that?"
"Duh! It's my home."
"She was raised there, April." Splinter walks in. "It is only natural that she would want to go back."
Despite myself, I nod in agreement.
"I just can't see them being friendly, that's all."
They're not really...
But I'm not going to tell them that.
"We're back!" Mikey shouts as all four of them walk back in.
"He- Hey, April." Donnie stutters.
The nerd's in love.
"Hey, Peri!" Mikey says, coming to sit next to me.
Nobody has ever called me Peri before...
I acknowledge him with a nod.
He's not too bad, considering he's the enemy.
"Mikey, stay over here, she might bite."
If he's gonna start on me...
I look round, and only count three other mutants in the room.
Leo isn't here.
I can go.
Leo's the only one who would get me back here in a flash.
Quickly, I get up and sneak out while they're all distracted.
As soon as I'm out and into the tunnels, I start running to the nearest manhole.
"Hey!" A voice shouts, and I'm suddenly pinned to the wall with a katana.
