Loyalty never dies (although people can)

Other / Thriller

Prologue

Flash.

The darkness of the sewers, the four turtles standing back to back in the centre of the darkness.

Flash.

A pink light flares up- a Kraang portal.

Flash.

Kraang bots rushing through, surrounding them.

Flash.

A muffled yelp.

Flash.

Leonardo getting dragged back through the portal.

Flash.

Darkness once again.

Gasping for breath, Raphael bolted upright, his body soaked in sweat, drenching the sheets.

Taking a calming breath, he slowly levelled out his breathing until his pounding heartbeat had returned to normal. Unfortunately, this was the same dream he'd been suffering all week- but the only trouble was- it wasn't just a dream- it was a memory.

A week ago, while in the sewers, Raph and his brothers had been surrounded by Kraang droids and before they could even attempt to fight back at the overwhelming numbers- a group of the alien freaks had grabbed Leo and dragged him away through the portal.

The remaining droids were easy to destroy- yet none had a portal device on them, giving the turtles no possible way to follow their brother. Not even Donnie could think up some grand master plan.

So now, all seemed hopeless. Leo- their leader and the one Raphael had always secretly admired for his determination was gone. Snatched by alien creeps leaving them no way to get him back. They were stuck in New York while Leo could be suffering unimaginable horrors in dimension X.

Raph rubbed his eyes and swung himself out of bed. He couldn't stand the thought of sleeping while his brother was missing- despite there being hardly anything he could do. Maybe he could find a Kraang hideout and steal a portal device? Yes- that could possibly work. Donnie could figure out a way to keep the portal open to allow them to return. Perfect.

Smiling for the first time this week, the sai wielding ninja began to stretch when suddenly, a panicked voice came echoing through the lair.

"Guys! Wake up! It's April! She says she just had this vision of Leo! Get up!" Raph blinked. If April picked up Leo… He leapt across the room, tugging the door open and slammed it shut with a bang- beating Mikey by seconds to Donnie's lab.

"What'd she see?" He snapped impatiently at his brother, who was doing a web chat with the red headed girl, "Where is he?"

April looked sadly at him through the camera, and shook her head.

"I'm sorry Raph, but I don't know where he is- I only felt this sudden stab of… well pain doesn't even begin to describe what Leo was just feeling. It was-" she shivered and her face grew white, "horrible. I've never felt anything like it. He's wounded- wounded real bad…"

The brothers shot each other a worried glance- their fears coming true. Donnie turned back to April.

"Is there any way you can isolate where he is?" his voice wobbled slightly, yet he managed to keep a mostly calm exterior.

The teenage girl shrugged, "I've never tracked someone with my powers who wasn't close by, but I can try…"

On the screen April closed her eyes and placed her hands either side of her head and for a long moment, there was a silence. Mikey looked to Raph who then looked to Donnie who made a 'shhh' face. They waited.

"I got him!" April's cry startled them all, but the most aggressive of the turtles recovered quickly and pushed his face to the screen,

"Where?!" he cried, not bothering to hide his desperation.

April opened her eyes which were slightly cloudy from the use of her power, "I haven't got an exact position- but Leo's in a Kraang facility in Dimension X. I'm pretty sure that it's the same place most of the Kraang handheld portal things go to. He's in-" another pause as she closed her eyes for a second, "cell 178."

She looked at each of the turtles, waiting for a reaction.

"Thanks April." Donnie eventually muttered, "Get Casey and alert Splinter. We're going now."

The turtles all nodded in agreement, their brother needed them and they couldn't let him down. The sooner they got to him- the better.

April agreed and signed off. A long pause followed before Mikey whispered, his voice cracking,

"What did she mean by-" he swallowed loudly, "wounded real bad?"

Raph placed an arm around his youngest brother and looked at him,

"Nothing good, Bro- but Donnie will fix him up. He'll be fine…" Donnie nodded in agreement to cheer up his brother, yet neither of the older turtles believed what they said. Leo was their leader, the strongest both physically and mentally- heck- even spiritually- and if such a strong turtle could be badly wounded by the Kraang- their chances weren't very good.

"Come on," Raph moved away from his brothers, "Let's go get Leo."
