I was at the library, watching TMNT on a computer, when someone tapped me on my shoulder and asked, "Are those the ones called the turtles?" I had my earbuds in and I was focused on the screen, so I answered, "Yeah, they're the best." After 5 minutes, I started to feel uncomfortable, like I was being watched, so I paused the video, took out my earbuds, and turned around and was shocked at who, or rather, 'what' I saw.
It was a KRAANGDROID! I thought, 'What the heck is going on?" "Play the video that shows the image of the ones called the turtles, so Kraang can observe the ones called--" "You know, pal," I said, "You really need to work on your English, cause you are giving me a headache." I got into a stance, and punched it in the stomach, cause I bet that it was their weak spot, and it worked! Sorta. I think I only made it mad, cause in, like, 2 seconds, it pulled out a ray gun! "The one that hits Kraang will do what is known as 'pay' for hitting Kraang." Then, I realized it was 6:30 pm, way after closing time, so there was no point in trying to yell for help. Then I heard footsteps. 'Oh, great you brought your friends.' Boy, was I in trouble.
Chapter 34: Memories Part 4: Leonardo
Leonardo was meditating happily on the fact that his new-found sister, Elizabeth, had recovered completely from her attack that was meant for his brother, Raphael. Or was it? He thought about when she told him about her battle with Karai. She seemed to have a motive for attacking Liz, since she beat her. But why did she aim for Raph? To attack Liz psychologically and emotionally? Or to ensure that she would jump in to save him? Whatever the reason, he was not going let her get away with it. He thought about the moment he held Liz's hand to comfort her after her nightmare. She smiled. He had felt something, something special, and it only intensified when he hugged her to support her about her friends, Heather and Rochelle. He couldn't place it, but.. it seemed to occur in his heart. Every time Liz needed help or wanted comfort, he was the first one she went to. She admitted to liking him a while back, but he only realized how much he liked her back when she was lying on that bed the day she saved Raph from a poisoned dart thrown by an unknown enemy. Ever since that encounter, he couldn't stop worrying, even though she was better now. Donatello told her to take it easy for a few days, until the deadly mixture was completely out of her system. Leo kept an eye on her until she was declared clear of it. Which was today. ''Hey, Leo.'' He turned and saw the pink-clad turtle sitting right next to him. His heart started beating faster. "Earth to Leo. Hello?" She snapped her fingers and he snapped out of his thoughts. "You ok?" she asked. "Yeah, I'm fine. You?" "A little tired from not doing anything." "Well, we're doing patrol in an hour. Wanna do that?" "As much as Michelangelo loves pizza!" "Hey, Liz." "Yeah, Leo?" "I... I like you, too." It was a whisper, but she heard it and smiled warmly before pecking him on the cheek. "Come on, chief. We have a pizza waiting for us." She walked out of the room, leaving Leo dazed. She kissed him. It wasn't like when she hi-fived him or even hugged him. This was different. Special, even. Her silky black hair felt cool on his hot cheek, and he could hear her heart beating as gentle as her skin felt compared to her usually rugged state. 'She must've been in the shower,' he thought, since her hair smelled oddly like dew and pine needles and her body smelled like primrose and wild mint. A nice combination of forest fragrances. "Leo! Where are you? The pizza's getting cold!" "Coming, Lizzie!" He took off, keeping that special feeling in his mind. Until he could find a way to return it.

Chapter 33: Memories Part 3: Raphael
"About time you woke up. I was starting to worry." Raphael said to his sister, Elizabeth. "Starting to?" Michelangelo said. "You kept pacing around the training room and muttering, 'Oh, I hope Lizzie's OK. I should have taken that dart, not her.' " "Shut up!" "I'm just telling the truth." "Great to have you back, Lizzie." Donatello said. But nobody noticed the red-banded turtle slipping out of the room. He started to think about the last time he and Liz talked without fighting. 'Oh, it's you. What? You gonna twist my other arm?' 'Raph, I'm sorry I twisted your arm like that. It was wrong. I would never want to hurt you, honest. I just lost my temper. I hope you can forgive me.' 'On two conditions.' 'Which are?' 'One, don't do it again. Two, don't ever get sappy like that in front of me again.' 'Deal!' He smiled, but it was a sad smile, because the main reason he didn't jump her was because his arm was sore. And it still was, only not so badly this time. He thought about the sparring match that started this whole mess. 'I'm just saying, Raph, you need to ease up on teasing me.' 'No way! I'm not letting you pretend to be little Miss Perfect just because you're the only girl here.' 'April is a girl, too, shell-brain!' 'Well, I mean, a mutant girl.' 'Just stop teasing me. Whenever you tease me, it makes me doubt myself, and when I doubt myself, I can't focus on my katas, and I perform poorly. And I do not think that I'm little Miss Perfect!' 'You don't think at all!' He suddenly realized that was the remark that sent them all into this catastrophe. An insult that led to Liz nearly losing her life trying to protect him, even after hearing the worst insult Raph had thrown at her since they met. 'She really cares about us. Even me, the hot-head, who's been treating her as an enemy instead of a sister.' "Hey, Raph." He turned and saw his sister, then did something he had never done with anyone. He ran and embraced her in a rib-crushing bear-hug. "Liz, I'm sorry for all the times I've teased, insulted or hurt you. I'm just glad you're all right." "OK, who are you and what have you done with my hot-headed brother, Raphael?" But she was smiling, and for Raph, that was all he needed to know she had forgiven him. "Uh, Raph?" "Yeah?" "Could you let go of me now?" "Oh, yeah. Sorry." "Aww." They whipped their heads to see Mikey standing there, grinning like a dope. "Looks like Leonardo's going to be jealous!" "YOU'RE DEAD!" Raph yelled as he chased Mikey around the lair. "It's good to be back." Lizzie said, laughing before joining the chase.
Chapter 32: Memories: Part 2- Donatello P.S: The plant does not exist. I just made it up.
"Where is Michelangelo with that medicine?" Donatello wondered. It had been half an hour since he sent Mikey for the medicine that Elizabeth needed to recover. While he was waiting, he thought about all the times Liz had helped them when they were in trouble, like the time Snakeweed strangled Leonardo. Snakeweed grabbed Leo by the neck, knocked his katanas out of his hands, and squeezed, hard. 'No! Leo!' Liz cried. But he didn't listen, and just squeezed tighter. Then Liz took one of Leo's katanas and cut him down. Then she raced him into the Shellraiser and raced home. It was amazing how much she cared about them, even before she was mutated. Like the time he was playing a game with Raphael and lost, and she came to his defense against Raph's teasing. 'So he lost this game. He's still the techno-genius in this family. In fact, his inventions are the major factor in saving your shell.' And she gave him advice about how to not get so nervous when he talked to April. 'Just pretend you're talking to an inanimate object.' 'But that sounds ridiculous.' 'Then, pretend you're talking to me. You don't seem nervous when you talk to me.' It was true. He never got nervous when he talked to Liz. Which was waaay different than when he talked to April. He was suddenly snapped out of his thoughts when he heard Mikey panting. "Mikey, where have you been?" Long story, but look! I got the medicine!" He showed the plant to his older brother excitedly. "Mikey! That's not the medicine it's--" "Arilius poranium." Leo said. "Wow. And I thought only Donnie could know the long and complicated names of plants." Raph smirked. "It's a healing herb. It'll have the same effects as the medicine you need, Donnie." "But I've never made medicine from a plant before." "You don't need to. She just needs to eat it." At that, the turtles heard a moan, courtesy of Elizabeth. "Liz! You're awake!" Leo cried. He felt like two tons had been lifted from his chest. "Mm-hm. Barely." the girl said. "Here's a healing herb, Lizzie. Just eat it and you'll be fine." Don said rapidly. "Ok." She took the plant and slowly consumed it. "How do you feel?" Raph asked. She smiled. "Ready to send Shredder to the scrap heap!" They all laughed in relief, now that their sister was healthy again. Especially Leo. He didn't know why. Was it because she was the only one who actually listened to him? Because she was the only girl turtle? Or was it because... he liked her? As more than a sister?
This story is getting more shocking and tense. I'm so worried about Liz. I know it was meant for Raph but still. Oh no, I just realized something, please tell me it wasn't Karai. I knew that she was cruel. You have to keep going. Please, I need more details.
Chapter 31: Memories Part 1: Michelangelo
"Elizabeth? Lizzie?! Come on, wake up!" This was too much for Michelangelo, an innocent fun-loving child. Or turtle, in this case. His new-found sister had been struck by a dart meant for his older brother, Raphael, who was already injured. Donatello was checking her vital signs with great concern. "Is she gonna be ok, Donnie?" "Her muscles seem extremely tense and her pulse is faint but extremely rapid. I'll have to do some tests back at my lab." "Then let's get the heck out of here!" Raph said, impatiently. The turtles got into the Shellraiser and drove to the lair. The whole ride, Mikey stayed by the unconscious girl, holding her hand. He remembered the first time he met her. Flashback: 'Well, look who's awake!' 'Huh? Oh, hello Michelangelo. I guess I was out--' 'You know my name? Awesome!' End of flashback. He smiled. It was nice to know that she knew about him even if they had never met. Then he remembered the time she tried his pizza noodle soup. 'Nothing will heal you faster than my world famous pizza noodle soup.' She tries it. 'Pretty good. Once you get past the smell, of course.' He still couldn't believe a human had liked his unique recipe. These memories made him feel a little better, but he still couldn't help but worry. Liz had done so much for him and his brothers. She cheered him up when he was down about his ex-friend, Chris Bradford. 'Hey, Mikey. Don't feel bad about Bradford. If anything, it's his fault for thinking he could just use you to get to Splinter.' 'I still feel like an idiot about that. Now that he's Dogpound, do you think he'll come after me?' 'I wouldn't worry about that.' 'Why?' She put her arm around him. 'Because he'll have to go through me if he wants to get within 10 feet of you.' 'Thanks, Lizzie.' 'No problem, little brother.' Suddenly, he didn't feel Liz's hand anymore. He turned and she was gone! "Liz?" "She's in here, Mikey!" Leonardo called. He sighed in relief. "So what's wrong with her?" "I don't think you'll like it, Mikey." Donnie said with worry in his eyes. "What?" Mikey said, a hint of panic in his voice. "It's..." "Just tell me, Don!" "Black widow venom and a stimulant mixed with caffine." "Caffine? Isn't that the stuff in soda and coffee?" Raph asked. "Yes, but when mixed with this certain stimulant, it can raise heart rate and blood pressure. And the venom causes the muscles to cramp, which is why they're so tense." "Can you do something for her?" "I've made an antivenin based on the venom in a blood sample I got from her arm where she pulled out the dart. But I'll need a special medicine to combat the stimulant-caffine mixture." "I'll get it." Mikey volunteered. "Ok, but you're gonna need a disguise. Here." He tossed a trench coat and fedora to Mikey. "And this should be enough to pay for it." He tossed a bag of coins that fell through the grate. "And here's the name. Now, when you get to the pharmacy, just give the paper to the clerk and say that it's urgent. When he brings it, pay him then leave. Got it?" "Yes." And he meant it. Usually, he didn't, but since Liz's life was on the line, attention was mandatory. He raced up to the streets, and went to the closest pharmacy he could find. But when he showed the paper, the clerk said, "Sorry, sir, but we don't carry that medication." Mikey was thunderstruck by this news. They didn't have it? But Liz needs it! "However, I have a friend who works in a pharmacy across town. She carries all kinds of herbal medicines and she might have one that will have the same effects as the medicine you're looking for. Here's the address." He wrote it down and gave it to Mike. "Thank you. This is gonna save Lizzie's life." "And here you go." He smiled and slid a candy bar to Mikey. "You should eat it. You look a little green." Mikey smiled back. "Dude, you have no idea."
Chapter 30: Brother and Sister
I walked into Donatello's lab where he was just finishing bandaging Raphael's arm after our sparring match. "Oh, it's you. What? You gonna twist my other arm?" I could tell he was still mad at me. "Raph, I'm sorry I twisted your arm like that. It was wrong. I would never want to hurt you, honest. I just lost my temper. I hope you can forgive me." "On two conditions." "Which are?" "One, don't do it again. Two, don't ever get sappy like that in front of me again." I laughed. "Deal!" We shook hands, but not with Raph's sore arm. "Glad that's done and you two are friends again." Don said. "Yeah," Raph said. "Wonder what Leonardo would say." "Shut up," I said giggling. Suddenly, Don's Tphone started ringing, with April's ringtone. I couldn't help but giggle. It was too sweet. "Hey, April. What's up?" "Hey, Don. The Kraang have been spotted on Delancey. They're stealing a nuclear bomb!" "OK, we'll be right there." "I'll get Leo and Michelangelo." I said, halfway to the kitchen already. I told them about the Kraang and that Raph and I had made amends. "That's great, Elizabeth." "The Kraang or her and Raph?" "Allow me." I smacked Mikey's head. "Me and Raph, doofus. Now, let's go!" "We headed off in the Shellraiser, where Don inserted a new station for me: Communications. I was in charge of making sure that our Tphones were working and alerting the guys of bad guy activity.
"Kraang at 10:00, Leo!" "Alright, let me at 'em!" "Whoa there, Raph. You're not fighting anything with that arm." "You're not the leader, Liz." "Well, I am your older sister, and I say you can't fight." "Older sister? You're not even related to us!" "I became your sister the moment I started living with you guys, and I beat you in age by at least a month. And I am going to act like a sister to you guys no matter what. And I'm starting by keeping you from hurting your arm even more by telling you you can't fight." "What-- Leo, come on! Tell her she's being ridiculous!" "I have to agree with her, Raph. We can't risk you getting hurt." "Man, this stinks more than Mikey's cooking!" "Hey!" Mikey retorted. "Guys!" Don said. "The Kraang have a 10,000 gigawatt sonic pulsar! If they set that off, the whole city will be leveled to dust!" "Oh, no!" "Found them!" Leo said, parking. "Raph, stay here!" "Aw, man!" "I'll bring you a souvenir, Raph." I said, winking before I jumped out. "Hold it, Kraang!" Leo called. "The holding of that which is known as 'it' is not the thing that Kraang--" Suddenly, a kunai pierced the droid's head. The others stared at me. "What? It was getting annoying." We attacked. What we didn't see was that a certain red masked turtle was sneaking behind the truck and trying to get the bomb back where it was. Unfortunately, his arm was sore from trying to lift it. "Ow.' he grunted. Then a laser blast caught his attention, when it came inches away from his head! "What the--" "Raph! What are you doing? Leo and I told you to stay in the Shellraiser!" I yelled, all the while slashing droids that got too close to him. "I had to help." "Not with that arm!" "Let's get out of here, guys!" Leo called. "But the bomb--" "No time, Donnie! We're losing and we can't beat them all!" We all ran, but not before I saw someone blow a dart at Raph's arm! "No!" I cried, pushing him out of the way and receiving the blow myself. "Ahh!" "Liz!" The mysterious figure was gone. I started feeling tense, like I couldn't relax. My arm started to hurt a lot. 'The dart must've been poisoned!' I realized. If Raph took the hit, it would not have been good. I started feeling woozy. "Liz! Liz, can you hear me?" I could tell it was Raph. He sounded worried. I pulled out the dart. I said, "Told you I would get you a souvenir, Raph." "Why did you do that?" I smiled a little. "Because you're my brother." I could've sworn I saw him tear up a little. Then, I blacked out.
