The Show

April was walking down a gloomy street in New York City. School had just let out for the weekend and the young teen was ready to grab a pizza for supper and head 'home'. As much as she enjoyed learning and socializing with other people, April enjoyed the company of her unique friends. 

It was roughly a year ago when April O'Neil was ambushed by a gang of ninja's. Despite using some of the techniques she learn from watching T.V. the girl was overpowered and left alone in the ally, bruised and bloodied. All feeling started to escape her has she lay in a pool of blood, her own blood. Just as she thought her life was over as, four creatures came to her aid. Suffering from major injuries, including a concussion and multiple broken bones April passed out. The creatures did what they could to stop the bleeding and reset the bones. They took her to their lair and waited for her to regain consciousness and explain what happened. At first she thought she was dreaming, or worse, when she saw four turtles in front of her. They weren't just ordinary cute little turtles though, they were giant turtles who were armed with dangerous looking weapons. She rubbed her eyes a couple times to make sure she wasn't just seeing things. Things were somehow managed to get even stranger when a giant rat walked towards her. He explained to her how they got to their current state and how they managed to stay in hiding for 15 years.

That had been a long, hectic year ago, now, those four turtles and rat are as close to her as family. They had helped her in her time of need and continue to do so. It scared April to think of the night she had me the boys but she was glad she had met them. They were great once you got to know them, even if they weren't humans. 

Turning onto another gloomy street April's destination came into sight. A neon sign spelling IZZ flickered, struggling to stay lit. It matched the rest of the street and to an outsider looked like a dangerous place, which made it the perfect place to get away from the New York crowds. "Two pizza please, Leigh." April ordered at her favorite pizza parlor.

The twenty year old behind the counter help up a couple pizza boxes. "Your usual sweetie?" she had a smile that lit the room more than the lights that still worked.

"How did you know?" She widened her eyes in mock surprise then winked at the woman.

Leigh shrugged. "It's a gift. Hey, have you heard from Riley lately? I was wondering if she could switch a shift with me or something, I have an event coming up and I can't miss it. Plus she's always looking for more hours."

Picking up the pizza, April set the money down and replied. I saw her at school today, I think her and Koda were going to the half pipes, they've been shredding like crazy since they got their new boards. I would say at least one of them has a phone with them."

"Thanks sweetie!" Leigh waved as April walked out the door.

April thought about the two human girls she had befriended, they where great when she needed girls talks or just get away from the guys for a while. She also thought what it was like to have a "normal" life with a job and not going to the sewers to chill with giant turtles.

Reaching the ally, April turned the corner and checked her phone. It was 4:59. "Awh, come on guys, not like you have busy days. You could be a little early to let me down in." She grumbled to herself.

Just a she was about to sit down on an old tire a voice came out of nowhere. "Hey, we totally have busy lives."

"Mikey! Don't scare me like that!" April scolded Michelangelo, the youngest, turtle with an orange bandanna.

"Sorry April, but it's what i do best." He walked out of the shadows and opened the cover to the sewer. "It comes with being a ninja… Along with this!" Mikey proceeded to kick the boxes of pizza out of April's hands. Swiftly, he did a back-flip into the hole, reached an arm out and let them land on his hand.

Rolling her eyes at the show, April climbed down the hole into the dark tunnel and waited for Mikey to cover it up again before walking to the lair.
