As Amber crouched on the wall of the Daimyo's wall, hidden in the shadows as she scanned everything. 'Everything seems clear…' She opened the front gate, and everyone came in, the soldiers coming to counter them. She jumped down, holding a handful of kunai in one hand, in between each finger, and the same with shuriken in her other hand. She threw them expertly, hitting some soldiers with deadly accuracy, when the Daimyo came out, drawing his sword and threatening to swing it at her. She took out a short ninja sword, holding it defensively as he came at her. She parried his every blow, and then hit him in the stomach with the but of her blade, and he took a few steps back.
She heard a rope snap, and a bell flew around him. She looked up to see Leo standing up there, smiling sheepishly. "Arigato…" she smiled when he gave her a confused look. "It means 'thank you'…" before she could move to join him, she felt an arm wrap around her neck, pulling her back, cold metal pressing into her temple. Fear nearly made her heart stop, and her brothers moved in front of them, standing in front of the bell. "Don't move, or the girl gets it!" she recognized Walker's voice, and growled under her breathe. When he ordered his men to shoot them, she couldn't stop her voice shaking.
"Don't! Leave them alone!" she pleading, struggling. He seemed to ignore her pleads, probably still angry about the verbal thrashing she'd given him before, when Leo put up a bluff. "Any bullets that you fire will just bounce right off and hit all of you instead." She gave him a confused, worried look, when Walker moved back behind a cannon, still holding her tight around the neck as he lit it. "No! Stop it!" she couldn't keep her voice firm or even, or keep the panic from her eyes. When the cannon was aimed at the elder turtle, she struggled harder. When the cannon ball blasted at him, she couldn't help the cry of his name that was torn from her throat.
But she heard it ring against the bell, and opened her eyes to see Leo had pulled his head into his shell, and the attack had missed. She breathed out a sigh of relief, when she felt a tug on her neck, nearly choking her as Walker dragged her into the building, ignoring her struggles and desperate gasps at trying to breathe. She saw him grab the scepter, and then pull her out the window and onto a wooden construction, where he got cornered on the edge by the turtles. He held the scepter over the edge, and the turtles flinched. "Any last words before you die, girl?" the barrel of the gun against her temple showed the seriousness of the matter, and she unconsciously made a decision. "I have one thing to say…"
When she didn't feel the prod of the gun, she decided it was safe to talk. "I'm sorry that it has to end like this, guys…but I have something important to say…to Leo…" she took a deep breathe, before she looked him in the eye, her own trying to stay firm. "I-…I just needed to tell you…that…" she blushed scarlet, not wanting such a big audience when she said this, but she tried to ignore them as well as she could.
"I-I love you…but I guess I was too scared to tell you before…Gomen…" she smiled at the confused look he gave her again. "It means 'sorry'…" "Now that THAT'S done…!" she heard Walker's venomous voice as she felt his arm tug her backwards, throwing her off balance. She saw the scepter fly into the air above her before she felt her feet leave the wood. She couldn't help the cry of surprise and fear that passed her lips as she fell down, the roaring of a raging ocean deafening.
Suddenly, she fell into something warm, which held her tight, and she opened her eyes to see Leo looking down at her, worried, as he held her bridal style. She sighed with relief, trying to calm her racing heart, when she heard him whisper, almost too quietly to hear, "I love you, too…" she looked up at him, though he was looking elsewhere, blushing. She noticed he was standing on a beam sticking out of the wooden construction, and looked up, saying, "I think that's all I ever really wanted to hear you say…" she leaned up, slightly self conscious, before she closed her eyes and felt his warm lips against her own. He seemed a bit surprised, but relaxed into the embrace. "Hey, look at the lovebirds!" they broke apart, blushing hotly.
Amber gave Mikey, who was above them, holding the scepter, a deadly glare, though it wasn't as bad as it would've been if he WASN'T her brother. When she saw Walker fly past them into the raging ocean, she yelled down to him, "AND GOOD RIDDANCE!! Throwing me off a ledge…" she muttered the last part, but smiled sheepishly at the amused look he gave her. He jumped up to join the others, setting her down, though she kept a hold of his hand with one of her own.
They seemed undecided about going home, though April and Amber said that they should head back. "What about Splinter? And Casey? Who's going to save New York while we stay here?" Amber looked questioningly at each of them, holding onto Leo's hand tighter, as if for reassurance, when the scepter began to glow. Amber grabbed hold with April, and they both looked at the others. Eventually, Leo, Donnie, and Raph grabbed on as well, and Amber looked beseechingly at her youngest brother.
"Please, Mikey…don't make me worry about you…" he seemed slightly undecided, until the lightning began shooting, lighting up the sky. "Mikey!" she called, worry evident in his voice. Mikey finally came to a decision, and he moved towards them, and Amber closed her eyes as the light hurt her eyes. When it died down, they were back in the lair, and she looked around, seeing no sight of Mikey. "Where's Mikey?" she questioned, anxious, when she saw an Honor Guard run to the ladder, climbing up, scepter in hand.
'We left him behind…' There was a flash of light, and Amber shielded her eyes before dropping her arms to see Mikey climbing down, a battered scepter in his hands. She hugged him tight, nearly making him choke. "I'm so glad you made it! I was so worried we'd left you behind!" He still seemed upset, though she couldn't think of a way to cheer him up, when Splinter put the lampshade Mikey had received onto his head as a joke, making the young turtle laugh. Amber smiled, thinking, 'I hope this is the end of it…but, even if it isn't, I'll always have someone by my side…'
