35. Hold My Hand
When they entered the lair through the lab’s side door the first thing that Don noticed was that the lights had been dimmed. The second was April as she stepped out of a shadowed corner to greet them.
“April!” Don called, relieved to see her. “Are you okay?”
“I’m fine, Donnie,” she answered as she rushed over to him. Her quick hug was immensely satisfying. “How are you? You’re not still hurt?”
She had a solid grip on his arm as she peered up into his face. The worried look in her eyes made him blush.
“It’s worn off,” Don told her. “Why were you waiting here in the dark?”
“I turned the lights off everywhere in the lair and closed all the bedroom doors. I was afraid my dad or Master Splinter might get up and wonder where everyone was. I wanted them to think we were all asleep,” April explained.
“So no one knows we were out tonight?&

“Freeze,” Don hissed, his eyes wide as they shot down to Leo’s hand.
There wasn’t the slightest bit of hesitation as Leo did exactly what Don told him to do. His hand remained on the handle, as completely immobile as Leo himself.
“What is it?” Mikey asked from behind them.
“The door is booby trapped,” Don said. “A string attached to the door handle on the inside goes directly to a pin on an explosive device. You might have already pulled it too far. Don’t move.”
If Leo were given to cursing, he would have probably already said a few choice words. Instead he waited as Don carefully slid his bo staff upwards between the handle and the door, watching as Don pulled back until the staff was solidly pressed against the handle.
“On the count of three, jump back fast,” Don said. “One, two, three!”
Leo sprang backwards with a giant leap and Don turned his head to the

Don tried to pull away from whoever was holding him, although his position was precarious and didn’t afford him a lot of leverage. After a second or two he realized that the hands on his arms were green and had gotten so strong from years of holding the handle of a katana.
“Is everything okay up there?” Casey called, his voice conveying concern.
“Yes,” Don quickly answered, his eyes on Leo’s face.
As his brother pulled Don through the opening, the genius turtle glanced around, spotting both Raph and Mikey nearby.
“How ya’ feeling?” Raph asked him.
Don leaned against the wall of one of the apartment buildings, enjoying the slight shelter offered by the overhang high above them. “Much better. Have you seen the Kraang?”
Casey appeared in time to see Leo shake his head. “After Raph brought April back to the lair, we came out and had a little running fight with them,” Leo said.

Before the last word had left the man’s mouth, all four turtles had drawn their weapons. They had no chance to move though, because a brilliant set of lights hit their eyes from two directions.
“Drop those weapons or we’ll shoot holes into those freaky costumes you’re wearing,” the same man ordered.
Leo could feel Raph tense up next to him and quickly placed an elbow against his brother’s plastron to stop him. Turning his head slightly, Leo could make out a group of men standing some distance down the corridor, all of them holding rifles. The way they were pointing those weapons at the turtles left no doubt in Leo’s mind that they knew how to use them.
“There are some behind us too,” Don whispered, knowing what Leo had seen.
As the turtles hesitated, one group of lights was lowered slightly and a burly man covered in tattoos snapped his fingers. On either side of him two sets of snarling hounds appeared; th

“Where do you think they’re going?” Mikey asked.
“I don’t know, but let’s not lose them,” Leo said, his eyes on the van they were following.
He was happy to note that the driver was taking things slow, carefully stopping at traffic signals and stop signs; never exceeding the speed limit. It made tracking the van much easier, considering Leo and his brothers were on foot; using the roof top shortcuts as a way to compensate for the van’s horsepower.
“I’m pretty sure they’re headed for the docks,” Don said as the smell of sea air hit his nose.
“Warehouse maybe?” Raph asked, leaping across to another building as the van made a turn. “Or it could be a shipping container.”
They continued to follow the van, unsurprised when they reached the waterfront. It wasn’t long before they ran out of buildings and had to continue their pursuit at ground level. As they were now

There were certain expectations that Don had always had out of life. One of them was that he and his brothers would forever be close and that no matter what friends or enemies came into their lives, they would stick together.
The last year had brought about a lot of changes for their family and it had all begun the night that Master Splinter had allowed them to venture topside for the first time. It was then that Donatello had seen his first live human girl and it had been love at first sight. A night of firsts.
From that moment on, April O’Neil had been a dominating figure in his life. Though he knew that she saw him as just a friend, Don had never let go of the hope that one day she would wake up and realize that he could be so much more.
They had their ups and downs of course, the lowest point being when her father had mutated into a giant bat and April had been so upset she’d never wanted to see them again. But time and April&

Don’s sudden flash of insight regarding Casey’s preferences took a great weight off the turtle’s shoulders. He didn’t feel like he was competing for April’s affections anymore because Casey didn’t sound all that interested in pursuing her.
Nor did Don have to concern himself with the idea that Raph might be chasing April as well, though that thought had been fleeting. What Don now assumed with great certainty was that Raph had been on the verge of telling him their secret when Casey’s mother had entered the room.
Raph had said he wasn’t worried about April’s motives around Casey because he knew that Casey was ambivalent towards the girl. His brother had been mad at Don and now it all made sense. Raph was worried that Don was trying to steal Casey from him, possibly thinking that Don was bi-sexual as well.
Leo seemed to have guessed something was going on between Raph and Casey, though from the wa
