Chapter 1: Ninjas in New York?
I look outside the plane's window and all I saw were the clouds and birds fly by. I tried my best to count them but it was so boring that I gave up on that pretty soon. I guess the only thing to do was listen to Sven talking about our next target.
Sven: When we get to New York, Train, I want you to stay on guard and no wandering around just to find milk. Keep your guard up. New York is a pretty dangerous place to get mug by gangsters. Got it?
I turned my head to stare at Sven who he had this irritated look on his face. I suppose I forgot about the plan again. Hey, this wasn't the first time I lost track. Sven's lectures are so long and boring that I'd rather go with the flow.
Sven: You weren't listening to anything I said so far, right?
Me: All I heard was blah, blah, blah, and a few more blahs. Why are going to New York again?
Sven: Because our next target happens to be causing a lot of trouble in New York. Not to mention he's the leader of a group called The Purple Dragons. Long Story Short, if we catch this guy big reward for us to turn him in.
Me: What does this guy look like?
Sven shows me the wanted poster. There was a big buff looking guy with blond hair tied into a ponytail. He was wearing a black sleeveless V-neck shirt so it showed his muscular arms and there were three scars on his left side of the cheek. It looked like some animal scratched him for having an ugly face. I looked at the bottom of the picture, which had his name place on it, Hun. Under his name was the bounty money for $5,000,000. This could be fun, having a challenge from him. You know what the old saying goes: The bigger they are the harder they fall.
Me: This is going to be a lonely job without Eve. Why did you tell her to stay with Annette?
Sven: Because it was too dangerous for a girl her age to help us on this mission since it involves taking down a gang leader who is at least is twice her size.
I look outside again with my elbow on top of the windowsill and my head resting on my hand.
Me: I just thinking that's all…
When we reached New York City, it was already nightfall. We found a place to stay in an apartment near a store called Second Time Around. When we entered our room it looked like a piece of shit, literally looked like a dump! It appeared as though instead of like a hurricane and a tornado had a pro wrestling match in there. There were cracks in the walls and the ceiling, a rotten pizza on the floor with a lots of roaches surrounding it and the smell was so fowl that I might have died right then. I bet a jail cell had more class than this.
Sven: Well, let's clean this up. This place isn't going to clean itself right, Train? Train?
I know what you're thinking, bailing out on friends while they clean the mess is wrong but I had to get out of there before I threw up last night's dinner. I was lying down on top of a rooftop, admiring the moon, when my instincts kicked in. Somehow, I wasn't alone…
I stood up pretending I didn't realize anything when someone, I suppose came up behind my back and tried to grab me. I quickly dodged the hand reaching out for me. I knocked the person out using the butt of Hades and took a look whatever it was. This thing is actually someone who dresses like a ninja…a NINJA! Okay, either this is the weirdest nightmare I have ever had after I drank milk or it's a person cosplaying as a ninja or they want to glomp me.
I whirled around and I noticed that I was surrounded by more ninjas. It was like an eternal army of them! But that was not half of it. Their leader happened to look like a human can opener. I could see his red eyes through the metal armor, which sent an odd chill down my spinal cord. He stepped out of his ninja armor and started walking my way. For every step he took I took one back. I glared at him, trying to send a message to stay away.
Can Opener Man: Do not be alarmed, Sweeper. For I come to offer a proposition.
Me: What kind of "proposition"?
Can Opener Man: I was informed that you would be here, Train Heartnet, to look for your next "target".
Me: How do you know my name?
Can Opener Man: Because I was the one who put out the bounty for you to come here so that we could meet.
Me: So you're saying that this was a set up.
Can Opener Man: You sure do catch on do you? *Evil chuckle* Now for the proposition: I want you to join me.
Me: Why would I join a nutcase like you anyway?
Can Opener Man: I did some research and I found out that you used to be an excellent assassin called Black Cat…
Me: Hence the word "used".
Can Opener Man: I also realize you have skills that none of my ninjas could master. So will you join me or do we do this the hard way?
Me: Here's your answer I choose c.) None of the above.
I kept backing away until I hit a breathing wall. Wait. Last I checked walls did not breathe. Two arms wrapped around me so I couldn't escape. I looked up and realized that it was Hun from the wanted poster. I tried to struggle but it was no use.
Can Opener Man: You will join whether you like it or not.
There is no way that I was going to be a killer again. I tried struggling against my captor but I froze when something else caught my attention. There, fighting against the ninjas, were 4 giant, walking, green turtles. Now this nightmare was taking a turn for the worse. Then an idea pop into my head (wish I had done it sooner). I was able to move my right arm and elbowed my captor in the stomach. Using this to my advantage, I managed to free myself and land a powerful kick to his stomach. Scarface let out a moan of pain as he clutched his abdomen. This was when I kicked him in the face, immediately sending the guy to Dreamland instantly knocking him out.
Me: That's what you get for trying to capture me, you big gorilla!
I glanced in the direction of the four turtles and I noticed that each sported a different weapon and a different colored bandana. The turtle with the blue one was using twin katanas while the red turtle used a Sai. The purple bandanna-wearing turtle had a Bo staff and the last turtle that favored the color orange happened to be using nunchuks. Watching the way they fought, I had to admit, they knew how to kick butt. I noticed a ninja sneaking up behind the purple turtle that was too busy to notice the incoming attack. Seeing as he was beating up the bad guys in my opinion, I decided to help him out. I rushed forward, tackling the ninja to the ground before he could strike the turtle. A punch to the face was all it took to knock out his lights.
Purple Turtle: Thanks.
Me: No problem, Purple Turtle.
After that, we both went our separate ways. Sort of. Seeing as how there were still a lot of evil ninjas around. He ran off and I got engaged in a fight with some ninjas aiming to knock me down. I guess I was so busy avoiding their hits that I didn't realize that one of their friends had managed to sneak up on me till it was too late. I felt an arm wrap around me to hold me in place as a wet cloth was pressed against my mouth. I still had no idea how the guy had succeeded in doing that. I was the Black Cat, damn it! Wannabe ninjas did not sneak me up on!
As soon as the pungent fumes reached my nose, I realized that it was Chloroform, which ended my mental rant. I couldn't let the smell knock me out so I tried to throw him off of me. Sadly I couldn't get my arms to obey me, as my brain grew sluggish. The pressure let up all of a sudden and I fell to the ground in a heap. I looked up and noticed that it was the red turtle that had saved me. I looked at the leader just as he was getting away.
Can Opener Man: Ninjas, retreat!
Red Turtle: Hey, Shredder! Get your metal butt down here.
Can Opener Man: *turns to face me* Black Cat, you will join us. And nothing can stop me from completing that mission.
After that he vanished from our view. I climbed back to my feet but my head still spun, thanks to the chloroform.
Orange Turtle: Whose "Black Cat"?
Blue Turtle: I'm thinking that's him. *Points to me*
Purple Turtle: Could you tell us why Shredder was after you?
Me: *rubs head* I'm sorry. Can you repeat that question again?
Red Turtle: Hurry up before I knock you out!
Blue Turtle: *sarcastic tone* Very civilized, Raph.
Me: I'll tell you after a good nap.
I almost fell down when someone caught me.
Red Turtle: Great. Now we have to take him home.
That's all I heard, before I blacked out.
