Chapter 25: Fatigues
“You are an Idiot! Now Look What You've Done!”
The person lowered their head. “I know… I screwed up.”
“Screwed up? You completely devastated the mission! I told you to watch them! Not engage them!” The taller shouted.
The black cladded warrior lowered her head. Shutting her eyes tightly when she heard the sound of computer turning on.
"Now we have to no choice but to keep surveillance on them from afar." The taller added making sure to type onto the keyboard.
The female warrior looked up carefully seeing her superior now take the primitives in their own hands. "Who are you contacting?"
"Headquarters. The original plan just changed."
His head began to throb heavily, it also felt really warm. His hands moved slightly and he could feel a sheet under him. In fact now that he grasped his sense of touch better, he was able to tell that he was currently resting on the bed.
He started to move-
“Easy there bro. Try not to move.” A low masculine voice sounded out in the darkness.
Leonardo tried to open his eyes but he found that he could not.
“Huh?” He voiced out, his three fingered hand reaching out. Though something grabbed the appendage first.
“It’s okay, we’re here.” Another sounded, this one sounded a little raspy, but similar to honey.
“Yeah, it’s okay.” The youngest responded squeezing his hand a little tighter.
“Let him go. He might have other injuries.” Another voice arose behind him. This one sounded a bit roughen with annoyance, but Leonardo instantly recognized the owner. That and the underlying possessiveness in that voice.
By command Mikey released his hand, setting it back on the bed.
Leonardo relaxed his muscles, and with a bit of concentration he was able to use his sixth ninja sense, there he was able to pinpoint four different bodies around him in the room.
One was beside him, which was most likely Mikey; the other standing on something at his far left. Another was behind his head near a desk and the final which was a bit smaller than the other three is near the door. The leader wasn’t entirely sure but it sure felt like he was inside Donatello’s lab just by how crowded it felt behind the bodies.
By that point Leo was certain that he blindfolded with medical bandages.
“How are you feeling my Son?” The soothing voice of his father called out gently.
“I’m alright Sensei.” He started wondering what was going on really. “I’m just… confused.”
"No doubt about it." Mikey reasoned.
“Hmmm.” The elder rat resonated in thought. “And your eyes, do they feel any pain?”
The leader paused for a moment, allowing his ninja senses to revert back and allow for his feeling to take command. In a split moment, there was a bit of an irritation feeling in his eyelids. But that didn’t hurt beyond a minor itch that normally could be resolve with a quick rub with the back of the hand.
“No, they feel fine.” He answered modestly.
“That’s good. I cleansed them of the blinding powder that kunoichi threw at your eyes. As far as I’m concerned your eyes should be fine, just you’ll have to keep those bandages on for a few days to make sure they don’t get an infection.” Donatello replied.
Leo didn’t move, in fact he was still surprise at his brother’s calm, usual voice. It wasn’t too long ago that his tone was full of lust, lubricated with hormones from his season.
"That still doesn't explain why he passed out." Raphael added removing the eldest turtle from his thoughts.
"I was getting to that, after cleaning his eyes, I noticed that he might have inhaled some of the powder. Obviously not made for consumption..."
"Will he be alright?" Mikey asked, his voice creaking with worry.
"I managed to gather a small sample of the chemical, and I found that it had traces of Rohypnol in it. Also known as Flunitrazepam or Roofies." (N-1)
Leonardo did not need to see to know that his brothers obviously did not take the news well at all. But also made him wonder if that was the case, in what the kounouchi did to him, how long was he out for?
“How long?” He asked knowing that the question wasn't leaving his mind any time soon.
“Almost an entire day.” Raphael stated.
No. That’s not right, Don would still be in season.
Is Donatello holding back?
There were so many questions but he couldn’t exactly ask them right now.
“Alright since no one is talkin’ I’ll do it. What the hell was that bitch doin' here anyways?” Raph groused crossing his arms.
“I could ask the same thing.” Donatello stated just as annoyed.
Leonardo shifted under the sheets that covered him from mid-plastron down. “I don’t know. I had been just heading straight to my room when I sensed someone inside.”
“So you’re saying that there was a girl sneaking inside your room, and looking through your stuff?” Mikey wondered.
By that everyone turned to the orange banded reptile. Who lifted his hands in defense. "I'm just saying."
“Uh… I guess…” Leo worded out.
“I just checked and she trashed the place Leo.” Raph replied.
There was a long sigh from his beak. *Great! That was just what I needed right now.* He thought sarcastically.
Knowing that he was already tempted by the news Raph added something else. “But by the looks of it, it doesn’t look like she took anything. I think.”
Even with bandaged eyes Leo turned to his line of senses towards the muscled turtle, an incredulous expression plastered on his face. “Nothing was taken?”
He sensed Raph shake his head. “Nothin’ I’m aware of.”
He would have to check for certain if there was anything missing. Well… as soon as he gets these bandages off.
“That’s weird… what kind of person takes the effort to look around a room, trashing it then leaves without taking anything?” Donatello questioned.
“The same kind of girl that looks through a mutated turtle’s room.” Michelangelo joked.
But that only earned him a slap upside the head. “OW!” That had to be Raph's doing seeing as he spoke next.
“Well either way, if I ever see that bitch in the lair again, you can bet your shell that the last thing she eva sees are these sais stabbin' her eyes out.” He threaten his hands reaching and grabbing the short weapons and spinning them professionally in his hands.
“Woah… now that’s just gruesome Raph.” Mikey said backing away.
“And your point is?” He responded his voice dropping several octaves in a mix of annoyance and anger.
“Uhm… right… I’m just going to stand- over here…” The youngest squeaked as he moved as far away from the emerald turtle as much as possible.
“While you’re at it, I need to check Leonardo’s eyes again. Would you all please leave.” Donatello said his voice instantly sounding similar to a scolding doctor.
The three other bodies held no qualms against that as they all walked outside of the door.
The leader was able to sense them leave, but one remained behind for a moment. Had Leonardo not paid attention he would have missed that it was Master Splinter that remained behind for that while. But he didn’t stay for too long as he spun around and took his leave, making sure to close the door behind him.
It was then Donatello took a massive deep breath and turned to see his mate back on the med-bed.
“You seriously have trouble finding you everywhere.” He said dryly.
“It’s not like I ask for it.” Leonardo replied softly.
“I know…” Donatello whispered placing gentle calloused hands on his face.
Even without his sight or the sense Leonardo could tell Donatello was just hovering over him in worry. The purple banded turtle hunched over a bit more and Leo smelled it. Yup. Definitely still in season.
“How were you able to handle it?” He asked lifting his head despite his temporary vision impairment.
“Well, when your lover, slash, brother is suddenly attacked, you tend to push those desires away for the time being to go rescue their sorry ass.”
“Yup. You’re definitely in season alright.” The leader said in confirmation. Don rarely cusses so bluntly.
“Is that a problem?” His voice just screamed a smirk.
“Unless you’re into BDSM, then no.” Leonardo joked lightly a small chuckle leaving his throat.
“I might be.” Donatello teased huskily leaving in closer.
Goodness Donatello smelled so good right now… Leonardo wanted nothing more to ravish him, or even get ravished either way worked but…-
A hand was pushed against Don’s cheek preventing him from moving closer. There was a tiny whine from the other.
“We shouldn’t… at least. Not right now.” The older said softly.
For a moment the genius didn’t move, but slowly separated his hands from Leo. “I understand…”
A gentle smile grazed over the leaf colored turtle. “I promise we’ll take care of your problem. But right now it’s a bit tense, with the intruder and such.”
“I know… I’ll check over the surveillance system to see where and how she entered.” He said his voice returning a bit normal.
“Thank you, after all Family comes first.” Leonardo added with a small smile.
The same expression scattered over Don’s. “Always.”
