Raph and April: More Complicated

It had been a week in the lair. A week of boys, constant boys. April missed her tub and her big sofa, but Raph wasn't ready for her to go back. The cops had not caught anybody from the attack when April was on her way back from her impromptu interview that probably was the cause of it all. Even Casey met up with Vern, much to his dismay, to get April's phone back. The guys were taking turns patrolling April's apartment and there hadn't been any visible Foot Clan action so far, but they were still worried Shredder was buying his time and making them feel safe. It was all false and it was driving April insane. The only good thing was she could be with Raph most of the time. Even though, no matter how much they love each other, too much together time will make anyone snippy with each other. She was developing a slight case of cabin fever and it seemed like she was hitting the weights almost as much as Raph to help pass the time and workout her aggression.

She just wanted to go outside and breathe the fresh air and walk down the side walk, go to a convenient store, anything. Most of the guys were gone so, she decided to try for the tenth time to take a bath in peace. She filled the tub up, whipped her hair into a messy bun, and slipped into the tub. She rolled up a towel and laid it under her neck and plugged in the headphones on her phone and played some music. April began to unwind as the steam billowed around her. She propped her feet up on the edge of the tub and bounced her toes up and down to the beat. Suddenly, the door busted open and her eyes popped open. Mikey just got from patrol and didn't knock because, let's face it, none of them were used to a female being around. Mikey froze when he realized Angel cakes was in the tub. April grabbed the towel and covered her chest.

"Uh, um,- I'm sor, uh-" Mikey stuttered.

"Mikey!" April exclaimed.

"Right, sorry!" Mikey said and turned around and ran down the hall, blowing passed Raph.

Raph eyed him as he ran down the hall, but he just shook his head and continued to the bathroom. There was April trying to dry off quickly since Mikey ran off and left the door open. Raph was grinning until he saw the annoyed look on April's face.

"What's wrong, babe? I figured you be asleep." He asked as he shut the door.

"Nothing. I'm just trying to relax. That's all." She said in a much pissier tone than she meant.

It made Raph snap his head to look at her but then he thought about Mikey running down the hall, "Did Mikey bust in on you again?"

April nodded as she got out of the tub and sat on the toilet seat, "It's not his fault. He's not used to me being here so much, just like I'm not. I didn't mean to snap at you." She huffed as she propped her face in her hands.

"I know you're ready to go back to your apartment, but it's just not safe yet." Raph said as she rinsed his face off in the sink.

"I know it's not, I'm just…" She trailed off.

"Home sick. I know." He kissed her head and she looked up at him, "I'm about to go on my patrol. How about you go with me for a little bit, so you can get out and you can get some of your clothes."

Her face perked up, "Oh, my God! Yes! I'll go get dressed!" She ran out of the bathroom.

Raph snuck out in front of April to make sure no one was up to see Raph take April with him. Leo would have a leader fit. They safely made it to the ladder and Raph watched April's cute butt climb up before him and he followed. Raph hoisted her in one arm and did his climbing with the other. First, he did his patrol that he normally does. He jumped along the rooftops with April close to him.

"Everything looks clear." Raph commented as he examined all sides of April's building.

"So, this is what you guys do on patrol. You jump along the buildings and make sure the city is protected. Every night. Imagine all the people that are better off for that." April commented.

"We hope so, that's why we do it." Raph confirmed.

"I know so. I was one of them." She countered as she sauntered passed him towards the fire escape. He shook his head and chuckled lowly, "We're headed down, right?" And he nodded at her.

She began going down the steps and she got more excited with each step. She knew just seeing her apartment would get her through a little longer down in the lair. Raph lifted the window and slipped in first to make sure everything was clear. After a few moments, he gave April the go ahead to come in. She delicately slipped through the window and walked to her bedroom. She turned on the bedside lamp and started gathering up a few things. Her sheet was still crumpled up on the floor from where she was wrapped up in it after her and Raph's first time together. The close quarters of the lair hadn't given them the privacy to do it again. Thought there have been several nights that Raph didn't much care about the privacy and he wanted to take her, forgetting and not caring who heard what they did. It was hard enough knowing what it felt like to be with her in that intimate way, but then have the privilege of sleeping with her every night and not being able to touch her was torture.

April's OCD kicked into high gear and she quickly spread the sheet out on the bed.

"What are you doing, babe?" He asked.

"I can't stand for my bed to be messed up." She quickly threw her comforter on top of the sheet.

"Want it nice and neat in case the Foot decides to break in." He joked.

"Ha ha. You're hilarious." She said sarcastically, "It's for when we get to come back and stay. I want it neat."

Raph didn't say anything because that was a sweet notion, "It's weird to think about what happened last time we were in here." He mumbled, he didn't really mean to say it out loud.

April turned from making her bed to look at his face, "I guess it is, huh." Her voice was kind and considerate because honestly she hadn't thought about how that night affected him because at twenty-seven sleeping with a virgin was almost an impossibility. She didn't think about that he was probably going crazy on the inside considering the fact that he was twenty-one and up until a week ago and twenty-one year old virgin, who would have never thought in a million years that he would lose his virginity. She sat on the edge of the bed and patted the spot next to her, "Come sit with me."

Raph pushed himself off the wall and sat next to April, "What's up?"

She had a kind of an embarrassing look on her face, "Do you want to talk? You know, about what happened." Raph groaned in embarrassment, "No, listen. Don't get weird about it, okay. Look I love you and I know what happened has to have your head spinning in circles. So many things have happened that you never thought would and you can't tell me that you don't have something to say… Really, Raphael. You can tell me what's going on in your head."

Raph looked at the floor, then at the ceiling, and back at April, "The only thing that had me goin' in circles was that I needed to tell you I loved you and I said that. It's a lot to take in, but it's nothin' I regret, so I don't need to talk about anything. I'm twenty-one, it wasn't my first time to cum, it was my first time having sex. I loved it and I loved it with you. End of story."

April nodded, "Okay, as long as your okay, I'm okay." She stood up to finish getting her stuff together and Raph grabbed her hand.

"Okay, there is one more thing." He hesitated, but she nodded for him to continue, "How was I? Did I have any clue what I was doing? Did I hurt you?"

"Okay, slow down. First of all, yes, I was sore, but you're a lot bigger than a human. Second of all, you did- you did great." She said as her cheeks became a little flushed, "It was very unexpected that night, you know, but it was wonderful."

"It's harder layin' in the bed with you now, that's for sure." Raph laughed.

April smirked, "How long do we have?"

"We just patrol until we feel like we've covered most everything." He answered.

April slipped her jacket seductively off her arms and Raph's eyes widened when he caught her drift, "I guess we have time then."

"I guess we do." Raph croaked out and he cleared his throat, "Right now?"

"Why not?" She asked as she placed her hands on his shoulders.

"I can't think of one damn reason." He stated. He stood up and removed his armor and sais quickly and turned his attention back to her. She slipped her top off her arms and unbuttoned her jeans. Raph placed his hands on her hips, fished his fingers under her waist band, and slipped her panties and jeans down her legs. He sat back on the bed and pulled them the rest of the way down. He tossed her boots off to the side one at a time. He looked back up at her. Completely naked and open to him, there were no guards up. She was there for him and him alone. He could actually see her now. Their first time it was completely dark and he could only feel her, but now he could see everything and it was perfect.

She crawled down on the bed, giving him a view of everything. She laid on her back and waited for him to make his move. Raph lowered his self over April, being careful to keep most of his weight off of her. He could very easily squash her to nothing. His lips began kissing her neck. She tilted her head back giving him every bit of her neck to kiss and caress. It made her back arch, pushing her chest into his plastron giving him warm tingles all over. He moaned roughly in her neck sending thrills through April. She spread her legs so Raph could lower his self closer to her. She felt him growing and she became more frantic waiting for him to enter. He was careful to not go too fast and hurt her.

Her hands delicately crept up his biceps. She loved the feeling of the muscles and the scales under her fingers. Then she felt the tip touch her softly and she moaned, anticipating him slipping in the rest of the way. Raph moved slowly as he inched further inside. April's head rolled back in ecstasy and her eyes fluttered shut the further he went, "Oh, Raph." She whispered. And it made him crazy when she said his name like that. He began to move in and out, slowly at first, then he sped up the more worked up she became. Her moans came rushing out of her as he thrusted. Then it happened. Raph's phone began ringing. Raph quickly halted.

"Don't. Don't get it. Let it ring." She begged as she dug her nails in his arms. She was on the edge and she needed him more than ever.

Raph hesitated at first, but it just took one puppy look from her, "Okay." The ringing ended and Raph began again.

"Just like that." She moaned. Raph leaned down and kissed her deeply, nipping at her lip and his phone started going off again.

Raph's head popped up in significant annoyance, "You've gotta be fucking kidding me?" He slowly pulled out of April and grabbed his phone, "What?" He growled into the speaker.

"Did you take April on patrol with you?" Leo questioned in an annoyed tone.

"No, I brought her to the apartment so she could get some clothes, oh mighty leader. That okay with you?" Raph snapped.

"It would be if that's all you were doing. It's not safe for her. You guys need to get back." With that Leo hung up the phone.

"Shit." Raph grumbled under his breath and hung up his phone, "We better go." As bad as Raph hated it, Leo was probably right. If the Foot came after her, he couldn't protect her like this.

"Okay." April whispered. She slid off the bed and started getting dressed.

Raph grabbed her arm, "I'm sorry, babe. I knew better. I put you in danger doing this and I shouldn't have."

"I probably knew better, too. It's okay. We both made a bad judgment call." She said and kissed him, "We can do this another time." She slipped her shirt on, "Let's get outta here."

A little while later, Raph and April walked back through the door of the lair and Leo was still awake to make sure they made it home.

"Hey, Leo." April smiled.

"Hey, April." Leo replied, but then her turned his attention to Raph.

"I'll let you two talk." She said sliding out of the room.

"Raph-" Leo began.

"I know, Leo." Raph interrupted, "You're right. I shouldn't have taken her. She was going nuts being stuck down here and I just wanted to make her feel better. It won't happen again."

Leo examined his brothers face for a long moment, "So, what you're really saying is that I'm right?"

Raph rolled his eyes, "Good night, Leo." He walked off.

"You can say it, Raph. 'Leo, you're right'." He said louder. He chuckled, "By the way, I can smell what you've been doing."
