Hey there! Well, here is the next story. I hope that y'all like it. The first chapter is very short (sorry) So, to make it up to you, I'm going to post the second chapter as soon as this one is up. As always, any tips or suggestions are always welcome. Thank you Leo112 for your help.

I didn't own them last week and this week isn't looking any better...


Chapter one: Departure

The four brothers knelt before their Sensei. A mix of excitement and uncertainty across their faces.

"How long will you be gone Master?" Leo asked.

"Only for a few weeks, my son," Splinter replied. "I know that I have never willingly left you four alone for this amount of time, but the Daimyo is in need of my assistance. I cannot refuse him."

"We understand," Leo said.

"All rules still apply, even in my absence," Splinter continued, looking directly at the red clad turtle.

Raph rubbed the back of his neck nervously and chuckled.

"Hai, Sensei," they all replied.

With this said, Splinter rose to his feet and hugged each son. He drew familiar symbols on the walls and chanted the spell to open the portal to the multiverse.

"Stay safe my sons, I will miss you." Splinter entered the portal and it disappeared.

They sat in silence for a few moments.

"Soooo," Mikey drawled. "Now what?"

"It's not that late, maybe we could rent a movie and watch it with April and Casey," Donnie suggested, giving Leo a hopeful look.

"Well, we should call first," Leo said. "Make sure they aren't busy."

"Really?" Mikey exclaimed, he thought Leo would say no. "Sweet! I'll call."

Leo sighed but gave a small smile. This was going to be a long 'few weeks'. He will be lucky to get them to wake up before noon, let alone practice. A little down time couldn't hurt...

"April said to pick up a pizza and she'll get the movie!" Mikey yelled from the living room.

"Okay, sounds good," Raph said.

They grabbed some street clothes and put them in their back packs.

"We should be there in about twenty minutes, if we go by foot," Mikey said as they left the lair.

They headed out into the sewers toward April's apartment.


I'll have next chapter up in a few....
