TMNT: "Their Pain Still Lives

Shout outs:

BubblyShell22: Heh…you have NO idea what's going to happen But, you're close Thanks for the reviews!

KikoKamia: I'm sorry you have to wait, it's because of this writer's block I've been having until now, that is. Again, I'm sorry. Actually, if you read closer(or whatever that thing's called), you can see that Don was having one of those 'about to die' signs. You know, the bright light…someone you know and love dearly is at the end of the tunnel, reaching out for you…yadda, yadda, yadda. Again, sorry for the wait, but here's chapter 3!

A/N: I decided to try something a little different to my song fics…Oh, and song lyrics are in Italics with quotation marks. Just straight Italics with no qoutation marsk means Dream Mode.


Chapter 3

'You don't remember me, but I remember you
I lie awake and try so hard not to think of you
But who can decide what they dream?
And dream I do...'

Marsha's P.O.V

"Don, please, wake up! You…have to…come back to us…" I cried silently, holding his hands in mine tightly. He feels so cold…what could have happened to him? I wondered as hot tears streamed down my face.

I've been through so much with Donny. I won't let it end like this.

"Marsha? What's with the tears?" I let out a gasp, upon hearing his voice. "Donny!" I hugged him tightly. "You're okay!"

"Of course I'm okay, sis."

I studied him. He looked troubled. "Donny, what happened?"

"I was trying to find what had Leo all spooked…when I heard Sensei's voice. He was calling out to me, wanting me to follow him into the bright light, but…then I heard your voice and, I don't know…I just woke up," he replied.

I narrowed my eyes in thought. Sensei wouldn't try to take his sons out of this world…even I should know that! Something's going on, and I have to find out what before it's too late!

I smiled and kissed him on the cheek. "I'm glad you're back to normal, Donny. I'll be in the living room, okay?" He just nodded and went to work on his laptop. He really likes the gift I bought him, huh? I thought, smiling.


"Hey, dudette! What's shakin'?" I looked up to see Mikey smiling brightly at me. "Oh, it's nothing, really, Mike. Just something weird's going on here…" my voice trailed off. I didn't want to worry Mikey.

"So…is it weird or mondo bizzarro?" He chuckled a little bit. I let out a sigh. "You've been watching Sealab, again, haven't you?"

He lowered his eyes, then looked up at me, a huge smile on his face. "Yup! Can't help it, I'm a fan of Erik Estrada!" I squinted my eyes a bit. "Who's Erik Estrada?"

"I can not believe you don't know who Erik Estrada is! He's the guy that plays the Spanish guy, Marco on Sealab!"

"Oh…well, in that case, have fun." I stood up and walked to Leo's room, curious on how he was progressing. "Leo?" I asked softly, poking my head into his room. I let out a short gasp, upon seeing him out of bed. "Where did he…" I shook my head. He couldn't have left the room or the lair without anyone noticing!

"Looking for someone?" I jumped, startled, turning around to face Leo. "Leo!! Don't do that! You scared me…just where were you, anyway?"

"I was just checking on Ukiyo. She was calling for both of us, and since you were in the living room, I thought I would go check on her. Looks like she only wanted a hug and a kiss, nothing major," he smiled.

"How did you know I was in the living room?"

"Oh, I have my ways…" he started to kiss me passionately. "Wait…how are you feeling since that little incident?"

"Honey, I feel fine…" I stared at him. "Are you…" he cut me off by kissing me. "I'm fine, don't worry so much, okay?" I nodded and sat on the bed. "What's troubling you?" he asked.

I took in a deep breath. "I'm worried about you guys. I can't help it. I mean, first you think Sensei's calling out to you and then Donny has a near death experience, with Sensei calling out to him as well! I want to know just what is going on!"

"Marsha, don't stress yourself. Look, you're tired, why don't you get some rest? I'll be right here with you." With that, he helped me under the covers and even tucked me in. How sweet…but I know he's hiding something… I thought. I just nodded and reached up to kiss him. "I love you," I whispered, slowly drifting off to sleep.


Darkness is all I can see at the moment. Something's up ahead…is that…Sensei?! "Sensei…what's going on? Why are you doing this to your sons?" I shout.

For a minute, he just stands there and smiles, then the image of Sensei disappears. "Sensei?!" I shout again.

"Marsha, honey, it's time to come home." I looked around the darkness, upon hearing a familiar male's voice. I suddenly see a familiar male figure standing a few feet in front of me. Tears start to form in my eyes. "…Dad? Is that you?"

He just nods, the warm smile never leaving his face. "After 15 years of being apart, we can finally be together again. You, me, your mother…we can be a family again. Take my hand, sweetie."

'I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you
I have to be with you to live to breathe
You're taking over me'

"Dad, I…" I shake my head and start to reach for his hand, then stop. "Where's Mom?"

"Don't worry, we'll be with her shortly. Just take my hand, sweetie. All of you pain will come to an end and we can be a family again."

"Marsha?! Marsha, don't do this to me, please!" I glanced around, hearing that urgent voice. "Leo?" I murmured. What was wrong with him? I could finally be with my parents…wait a minute…

'Have you forgotten all I know
And all we had?'

My parents…they died in the fire when the Foot attacked our apartment. I didn't know at the time, because I was staying with April. No one would tell me what became of them, since I was only seven years old at the time. I looked back at my father. "What is this, a trick?" I asked, gritting my teeth together. "My parents are dead. I have a new family now."


"Heh…you catch on pretty quick, my dear." I turned at the rough sounding voice to see that my father had disappeared. "What's going on here?!"

"Marsha, come on, please." That voice again. Leo. I felt his hand take mine. Why can't I wake up? "Leo…" I murmured.

"Yes, honey, it's me," his soothing voice calmed me.

'You saw me mourning my love for you
And touched my hand
I knew you loved me then

I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you
I have to be with you to live to breathe
You're taking over me'

My eyes slowly opened and I saw Leo sitting beside me, a very concerned look on his face. "Leo!!" I hugged him tightly.

'I look in the mirror and see your face
If I look deep enough...
So many things inside that are just like you are taking over

I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you
I have to be with you to live to breathe
You're taking over me

I believe in you
I'll give up everything just to find you
I have to be with you to live to breathe
You're taking over me
You're taking over me...'

"Marsha, what happened?" he asked softly. "I tried waking you up, but you seemed very distant, almost like you were in another world…"

"Leo…I saw my father. Well, it wasn't really him. He was trying to get me to go with him so we could be a family again."

"Wait…didn't your parents die in the fire?" I cringed at the question. "Sorry."

"No, it's okay. Yes, they did. I would have taken some imposter's hand if it weren't for you, Leo. Thank you," I whispered.

"You're welcome." He kissed me; I gave in easily.

To be continued…


A/N: Yes, I'm ending this chapter here for now. Yes, instead of just having the Turtle's P.O.V's in the Story, I'm having everyone's P.O.V. in it. Be on the lookout for the next chapter: "Imaginary"-Mikey's P.O.V.
