Big thanks to kaaayyytteee and Purple 'N' Blue wings for reviewing!
Okay, here's a little sneak peek at the possible sequel. Please, please, please review and let me know what you think!
Cade stomped through the garage, completely ignoring her Uncle Don and Aunt Amie as they called to her. It wasn't long before she was racing across the roof tops of New York. Completely aware that her father was following her the whole time. Why the shell can't he just leave me alone? Can't he just get it through his thick head that I don't want to talk about it?
But there was no use trying to outrun Daddy. She knew 'cause she'd tried it before. So, she kept going until she reached the park, stopping in the middle of the woods so that her father could catch up.
She kept her shell turned firmly toward him as he approached, "I'm fine, Daddy. I'm not gonna do anything stupid." Cade turned slowly toward him, "Just needed some air."
Raphael nodded, then wrapped her in his big arms, "I know you're not gonna do anythin' stupid. You're a lot smarter than I was at your age. But you're sure as shell not fine. I'm not that dumb."
Cade gave a half-hearted chuckle, burying her face in his chest. "Why Grandpa, Daddy? I mean, yeah he was old. But he wasn't that old. I just want him back," she finished with a soft sob.
Raph tightened his arms around his daughter, "I know, Sweetie." His voice almost choked. "Splinter was my dad, ya know. I miss him just as much as you do."
"I'm sorry for being such a pain. I just... I just don't know what else to do," Cade said miserably.
Her dad kissed the top of her head, "You're not a pain. You're just hurting like the rest of us. There's nothin' wrong in losing it every once in a while. Better to stomp off then to explode. I should know. I was a lot worse when I was your age."
"So I've heard," she said, trying to keep her voice light as she looked up at her Daddy's amber eyes.
Raph's expression was just a little stern, "Ya might want to apologize to Laney, though. She seemed pretty upset."
Cade pulled away and sighed, rubbing tear-filled eyes with her knuckles, "I know. I didn't mean to hurt her."
