It was a very quiet night in the summer as the Raphael and Mikey were
coming home from taking an after dinner walk.
Mikey burped loudly. "Whoa, excuse me." he said.
"Man Mikey, that stinks." said Raph, waving his hand in front of his
face. "What was on that pizza you ate anyway."
"Anchovies, what else?" replied Mikey.
"Gross man, that's just gross." said Raph.
Just as they were passing a building, Raph noticed a shadow creep
into the side door.
"Hey, you see that?" asked Raph.
"See what?" asked Mikey, turning around.
"That shadow go in that building." replied Raph as he stopped walking
to look at the building.
"No dude, I didn't see anything." said Mikey.
Raph looked at the building for a long time.
"Maybe we should go dude, these streetlights make us real visible."
"Yeah, you're right." said Raph.
Mikey began walking towards home, when he saw Raph go into the
shadows created by the tall building. He sighed. "Here we go again, Raph on
the job." Then he walked over to Raph.
Raph went to the side of the building, and turned the doorknob; it
was open. He was about to go inside when Mikey stopped him.
"Um, shouldn't we get the others if we're gonna go investigating?"
"They'll just slow us down. I just wanna see who, or what went in
there." said Raph. Then he turned to Mikey. "You can go home if you want,
but I'm not, not yet anyway."
Mikey sighed. "Nah, I'll stay here. Someone's gotta have your back."
Raph said nothing, he just crept into the building, followed by
Inside was dimly lit with light from the streetlights and moon.
The two Turtles walked around a bit. They soon saw came into another
dark room, but heard voices coming from another room nearby.
"Yeah, she's definitely worth a bundle." said a man.
"I knew it! It took me a lot of trouble to get this thing, I knew she
had to be worth something." said a familiar voice.
"Bonehead." Raph growled as he and Mikey listened in.
"So when do you expect to sell 'er?" asked the other guy.
"When she wakes up, then they can see her in action." said Bonsteel.
"But thanks for comin' and appraisin' the brat."
"No problem, anytime." said the guy. "Now lemme show you this rare
white tiger that I have out back."
Then Mikey and Raph heard footsteps, and hid behind a few huge crates
in the room.
Raph saw the man and Bonesteel come out of the room. They both went
to another part of the building, talking about the white tiger.
"Are they gone yet?" asked Mikey.
"Yep, they just left." said Raph, standing up.
Mikey also stood up. "I wonder what they got in there."
"The same thing I was thinkin." said Raph. He began approaching the
room where the two guys were in.
Mikey followed him into the room.
There, they saw a large, thick-barred cage. Inside was a girl of
about 16, lying on the bottom, unconcious.
Raph and Mikey both raised an eyeride.
"Bonehead is marketing kids now?" asked Raph.
"Man, that's wrong." said Mikey.
Raph stepped closer to the cage to get a better look at the girl.
She had very long black hair, and was wearing a brown suede suit that
was almost as brown as her skin.
Raph went closer to her and looked at her carefully.
"Hey Raph, I think I hear them coming back." said Mikey, looking
Raph glanced over at Mikey. "Yeah, we better go." he said. Then he
took out a portable knife. "But not alone."
Mikey turned around just in time to see Raph jimmying the lock to the
cage the girl was in. "Raph! What are you doing?"
"I'm gettin' her out. She don't need to be in no cage." said Raph as
he finally opened the cage.
Mikey looked nervous as he saw Bonesteel's shadow approaching the
room. "Raph." he whined.
Raph reached into the cage, and picked the girl up. He looked at her
while he held her, and couldn't help to think that something just wasn't
right with her.
"Raph!" Mikey shouted.
Raph turned around to see Bonesteel angrily running into the room.
"What are you freaks doin' with my bounty?!" exclaimed Bonesteel.
"We'd love to stay and chat, but we gotta go." said Raph.
Then he and Mikey pushed past Bonesteel and ran out of the building.
"Turtles!!" exclaimed Bonesteel as they ran off.
Mikey and Raph went down the manhole, and ran home.
At home, Leo was pacing up and down.
"Leonardo, they'll be fine. You'll get blisters if you keep pacing
like that." said Venus as she sat on the couch.
"I can't help it. A walk never takes this long." said Leo.
"Well can you at least pace somewhere else? I'm trying to watch
television." said Venus.
Leo stopped and looked at her.
"What?" she asked.
Just then, Mikey and Raph entered the room.
"There you guys are! Where have you been?" asked Leo.
"Cool your jets Leo, we were out steeling hunter bounty." said Raph,
as he walked over to the couch.
Leo looked at what, or who, Raph was holding. "What are you doing
bringing a human here?! Are you crazy?!" asked Leo.
Venus stood up and smacked Leo on the back of his head. "Calm down
Leonardo!" she said.
Donatello turned around from his computer, and noticed the human in
their midst. "Oh my." he said.
"Splinter isn't gonna like this." said Leo as Donny came over.
"I'm not going to like what?" asked Splinter.
The group turned around and noticed Splinter standing there.
"Master. Raph has brought a human home." said Leo.
"Tattle tale." said Raph as he laid the girl down on the couch.
Splinter came over to the couch, and looked down at the girl. Then he
looked back at Raph. "Why have you brought this girl home?" he asked
Raph could tell that Splinter was unhappy. "She was in a cage, in
Bonesteel's hideout. He was gonna sell her."
Splinter turned to Mikey. "You were with him, is this true?"
"Yeah, sure is Master. We heard their conversation." said Mikey.
"Why would Bonesteel wanna sell a human? I thought exotic and rare
animals were more his forte." said Donny.
"Perhaps he is into, what they call, the black market trade of
selling children." said Splinter.
"Even so, wouldn't he try and sell someone younger?" asked Venus.
"Who knows." said Leo.
"Let her be. She must rest." said Splinter.
"What? You're letting her stay here?" asked Leo, following Splinter
off to his room.
"She can stay until we find out who she is." said Splinter. "Now
please, leave me so I can rest." Then he went into his room.
Leo sighed deeply, then turned around and looked at the girl.
"Humans. . ." said Leo. Then he went into the kitchen where Mikey was.
