The Love Of Their Lives
It was like any other day for the turtles. As always, Leo was in the dojo, Raph with his punching bag, Donny was on the computer, and Mikey was playing video games. As the brothers were doing all this, Master Splinter was resting. Suddenly, he felt something in the air. He woke and shot up; trying to figure out what was the aura in the air. He followed it out of the room, his oldest son noticing him. Leo ran up, looking slightly worried.
"Father, what's going on? What do you sense?"
"Something, I just don't know what it is, my son."
"What's going on here?" Raph muttered in an annoyed tone. He had joined them in the dojo, having overheard what Splinter had said.
"Nothing. Go back to what you were doing, Raph."
"Hey, don't boss me around as if I was a five year old, Leo!"
"SILENCE!" shouted Master Splinter, finally knowing where the aura was coming from. Donny and Mikey came in to see what was going on.
"What's happening?" asked Donny, a confused look on his green face.
"Yeah, I was on level thirty four when Master Splinter yelled," looking both annoyed and worried at the same time.
"I don't know guys," said Leo, uncertainly.
"There," Master Splinter pointed into the sewers, "It's coming from over there, my sons."
"We'll go check it out. Come on, guys," everyone followed Leo into the sewers, looking around for something suspicious.
"I don't see nothing, Leo!" Raph exclaimed angrily.
"Are you sure he was pointing in the right way? Cuz you know he is getting a little too old for the guessing game," said Mikey jokingly, earning a slap to the head from Raph, "OW! What you do that for?!"
"For being a shell for brains, Mikey."
"Shhhhh... heard that?" Donny tilted his head, trying to hear what Leo was talking about. Pretty soon he did.
"Yeah, I hear it too. It's coming from this way."
"AHHHHHHHH!" the sound got louder.
"Grab her! The Captain wants her unharmed; he needs her for his plans!"
"GET YOUR PAWS OFF ME, YOU STUPID MAN! LET GO!"
"You know ever since the captain heard that you didn't die in that accident, he continued with his plans. He will every pleased to see you again."
"Likewise" A young woman said. Her voice sounded seductive, and she had a grin on her face. She started to chuckle, then broke into a full out laugh, startling her captors.
"WHATS SO FUNNY, LITTLE GIRL?"
"I can't wait to see the look on you face when you get beaten up."
"What did you say?" then they, including the hiding turtles, heard a sound.
"What was that?" asked a man. He held onto a sword, thinking it would protect him.
"That, my dears, is a dear old friend of mine," the girl smirked. The leader of the group looked around.
"Show yourself, freak!" he started walking backwards, frightened. He felt someone tap his shoulder, and, against his better judgment, he turned around.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" the turtles winced at the boss's blood curdling scream. They watched as the mystery woman, who was on her knees; get up and kick the man who had been holding her. He fell to the ground and laid still. Another man, who had an eye patch, came charging at her. She moved just in time, and he hit the wall, knocking himself out. The rest of the men fled, not even bothering to help their fallen comrades. The girl's friend, who had succeeded in knocking out the leader, rushed to her.
"Are you all right?" she asked worriedly.
"Peachy, now can you untie me please?" she tried to untie the rope securing her hands, but it was hopeless. Her friend yanked at the ropes, "Ow!" the other girl smiled sheepishly.
"Sorry about that," she stepped back, trying to see what could be done about the ropes. "You know, for brainless men, they sure can tie a knot."
"Maybe we can help," the girls turned, getting ready to fight someone off, when they saw that the speaker was a turtle, and that there were four of them no less, they were quite shocked, to say the least.
"Who are you?!" they shouted in unison, making the boys wince.
"No need ta yell! We're standing right here!" Raph snapped.
"Hey don't get snippy with me! You have no idea what I can do to you!"
"I have a pretty good idea," said Leo, gesturing toward the unconscious men.
"You want our help or not?" questioned Raphael. The girls looked at each other, sharing a silent conversation.
"Do you? Do you? Come on! You know you want our help!" Mikey bounced up and down on the balls of his feet, looking eager.
The girls shared one more look, then nodded. "Okay we accept."
"Good then. We can start on cutting you free," Leo pulled out his katana. With a flick of his wrist, the ropes cut.
"Ah... finally!" the now freed girl said joyfully, "Well..." she grabbed her friend's arm, "Thanks for the help, it was nice meeting you, bla bla bla, but we have to go."
"Hey, wait a second!" the girls stopped and turned around, looking as if they had gotten caught with their hands in the cookie jar, "What are you guys…er. I mean, girls," Leo asked, curiously. The girls tensed, not answering his question.
"What, cat got you tongue? Hehheh-OW!"
"Stop acting like an idiot, Mikey," Donny muttered under his breath.
"What?" the second girl held a hand to her mouth, muffling her giggle.
"Well," Leo started, "Can't you tell us why those men wanted you? Look if it's about trust, we promise we won't tell any one about you guys."
Raph rolled his eyes, "As if we had people to tell," Leo nudged him in the side, not taking his eyes off the girls.
"It's not that…" the first girl spoke up, "It's just that we don't want to put anyone in danger."
"Yeah," the other one said, "She's right. Loads of people have gotten hurt or they disappeared because of us," they both sounded guilty.
"Look, we can take care ourselves. Don't worry 'bout us," Raph surprised his brothers by using an almost-sweet tone.
"Well…ok, but you should brace yourselves," they took a deep breath, trying to calm themselves. One step out into the light, and the boys gaped at her appearance. She had light green skin, with a tail to boot. She wore black skinny jeans, matching shoes, a belt, a pink tight shirt and a jacket that showed off her sexy curves. The jacket was all black and had pink stripes going down on the sleeves. Her hair was a light brown, and looked so soft that it was just begging to be touched. It was straight on top, ending in curls around her hips. Her face was angelic, with sky blue eyes. Since her bangs always covered her left eye, she had started the habit of flicking her hair.
The other girl stepped out, making the brothers gaped yet again. Just like the brothers, this girl was also a turtle. She had a small frame, though she was just as curvy as her friend. She too, wore a mask, with a light blue color. She wore both knee and elbow pads. Instead of the sky blue color, her eyes were a cute baby blue. The male reptiles were stunned to see the two beautiful, mutant girls. Neither girl had a weapon, Raph noticed. He relaxed his grip on his sais.
"S-so what are your names?" Donny stuttered, flabbergasted.
"My name is Venus De Milo," the female turtle informed them.
"And my name is Mona Lisa. Welcome to our nightmare, boys."
