TMNT: A Brother's Bond Chapter 2Chapter 2: We Need to Find Him
Mikey struggled. He was tied to a chair and his head was hurting. Shredder was standing over him. Their eyes met. Mikey looked into his captor's eyes. One eye was scarred. It creeped Mikey out just looking at him. There was an annoying blinking red light behind him.
"You know what this is?" Shredder asked pulling an object from behind his back.
"My…nunchaku," Mikey said. His blue eyes dulled as he saw his weapon in the hands of his enemy.
"That's right," Shredder said with a twisted smile. He stretched his arm out and quickly brought it back smacking Mikey with his own weapon. He gave Mikey a few more blows to the head with the weapon before using his clawed weapon on his hand to break the nunchaku in two.
Mikey's breathing was uneven, his head was sore. "S-stop," he said helplessly. Shredder gave a low laugh.
"Splinter must pay for what he has done!" With his claw-like blade he made a gash on Mikey's arm, causing him to whimper. After several more attack

Mikey's nunchaku landed by his foot. Mikey was several feet away. Before he could help his younger brother Shredder had taken him.
The day before...
"We need to split up," Leo instructed. "Raph you and Mikey--"
"I don't want Mikey, make Donnie take him!" Raph snapped.
"I don't want him either! Leo you take him," Donnie complained.
"If none of you want me then fine! I don't want you either!" Mikey snapped. He climbed down the fire escape.
"Mikey! Come back," Leo called. As he tried to chase him down. "Great see what you guys did!"
"Not like you wanted him either," Raph said, following behind Leo. "You were sending him with me."
"Let's go find Mikey," Leo said, leaving the ally way.
Leo, Raph, and Donnie searched all over the city for Mikey. They even called April in case he showed up there. They slipped into the ally way that was closet to their lair. Donnie dropped to the ground.
"We have been at this for hours! We are never going to find him

Mikey was in a dark room. He was hungry, cold, sick, and he could hardly keep his eyes open. He just laid there in his own blood waiting for the next beating.
He had no clue how long he had been there it felt like forever. He just missed his brothers, Splinter, and his room. The door opened. Shredder came in.
"Ready to talk yet?" he snapped at Mikey.
"Ne--ver," Mikey snapped back before going into a coughing fit.
Shredder kicked him and then brought a clawed hand down on him giving him some fresh cuts. Mikey grimaced in pain. Shredder bent down a picked Mikey up. Their eyes meet. Mikey's usually blue eyes were almost grey. Mikey could not stand the look of the Shredder's scarred eye.
Shredder dropped Mikey to the ground. He poised a knife at his neck. Mikey said nothing. He tried not to think of what was going to happen. Shredder had told him that if he did not cooperate he was going to kill him.
Was this the end? Mikey thought.
"This is your last chance," he snarled.

"You should tell Master Splinter. There may be a way he can help."
"I want to go skateboarding! Want to come?" Mikey jumped up from his seat, knocking the chair over.
"Mikey," he looked up; Mikey's eyes were big and he was sticking out his lower lip. He sighed, "I will go, but you have to ask Master Splinter first."
Mikey pouted and crossed his arms. "He's just gonna say no."
"It never hurts to ask."
"Yeah I guess," Mikey dragged his feet as he walked. A few minutes later, Mikey came back. "He said no."
Mikey went to the couch and flipped on it upside down. He turned on TV and watch whatever happened to be on.
Donnie left his lab and went to see Splinter. "Master Splinter," Donnie said get his father's attention "Mikey told me," he sighed, "I don't want to be a tattletale, but Mikey told me he never stopped having nightmares."
"I guessed as much," Splinter said stroking his beard and looking at the upside down Michelangelo. "He has gone through a g

Donnie was caught off guard. Mikey was unconscious when he found him. "I was in there," he said. He remembered it too well. "Why do you ask?"
"That is what my dream was about. I thought I heard my name called; I thought it was you." He looked at his brother "but I did not see you. I thought my mind was playing tricks on me."
Donnie hugged Mikey tightly. "I will keep you safe, I promise." Donnie said. It would be a hard promise to keep; knowing that their battles with Shredder had really just begun, but it was a promise he was going to try like shell to keep.
Mikey pulled back from his brother's embrace. "We're still a team right?" he asked.
"Yeah Mikey, we are still a team," Donnie smiled and held out his fist; Mikey met the fist bump.
"The best team!" Mikey said smiling.
Leo was walking by on the way back from the dojo.
"We are way better than the other two," Mike said smiling widely.
"In what world?" Leo scoffed.

Mikey was shaking. "St-st...op it h-hu..r...ts," he could still heard Shredder laughing at him.
Leo went to touch his brother so calm him, but he flinched at his touch.
"D-DON'T," Mikey called out panicking. In his mind he was still in the dark room.
Leo pulled back his hand. "Mikey, it's Leo," his voice was nervous.
Mikey pulled his knees to his plastron and wrapped his arms around them, he was still shaking.
Donnie reached out his hand to place it on Mikey's shoulder, but Mikey pulled back again as if Donnie's hand was on fire.
Donnie felt numb, he looked blankly at his brother. Mikey's breathing had become faster and he was sobbing.
"Mikey, you're at home," Raph said, his heart was racing.
"You're safe," Donnie added in.
"It's going to be okay," Leo said.
Mikey's body slowly started to relax. It was going to be a long recovery.
Leo, Raph, and Donnie sat down on floor by Mikey's bed.

Leo was the first one to turn and look at his sensei. Leo could tell that Splinter was disappointed in them.
"How can we know his true skills if he is always goofing off?" Donnie asked.
"You must help him see his potential."
Leo looked confused. "How can we help him find that?"
"You have already started to," Splinter said with a knowing smile.
"How is that possible?" Donnie asked.
"Well, Donatello you went in to find Leonardo and Raphael with the help of only Michelangelo. Leonardo, you instructed him to guard over Raphael when he could not fully protect himself. Raphael, you allowed him you be your eyes." Splinter looked at his each of his sons.
"The only reason Mikey was watching Raph was because I told him too," Leo said.
"Your sight was better than Raphael's if you did not trust Michelangelo to watch over your brother then you should have him guard you or have him with Donatello. You trusted him. He was doing what you wanted him to do if the situat

"Put my son down Oruku Saki!" Splinter's voice rang out.
"Splinter?" Donnie asked, he looked at Raph in disbelief.
"Put him down? You mean like this?" He flung Leo to where Raph and Donnie were huddled.
"Leave my sons out of this. This is our fight." He stood in a defensive stance. He looked at sons.
"My old friend Hamato Yoshi. I knew I could find my way to you by using your idiot of a son."
"Leo," Donnie gasped diving his brother a gentle shake.
Leo tried to move but it hurt too much.
Donnie's injured leg shook under the extra weight of helping Leo to the sewer. The dropped down to sewer. Mikey was laying on his side. His breathing was weak and his eyes were shut tight.
"Now what should we do?" Raph asked
"Leo and Mikey can't exactly walk on their own. You and me have enough trouble walking and moving before we add the extra weight." Donnie said.
"I can," Leo tried to stand up but he dropped to his side.

Purple Dragons had them surrounded. Mikey was getting nervous, he was back to back with Raph with Donnie to his left.
"One," Leo called "two," he pointed forward and they advanced. Striking they took down three of the five Purple Dragons.
Mikey was on the left side of the alleyway in front Raph. Leo and Donnie were on the right.
The tallest of the Purple Dragons gave a sly smile two the others. He gave his wrist a quick flick, causing a kunai to fall into his right hand. The other two Purple Dragons turned their backs to the tallest one, staring down the remaining two turtles.
The kunai sailed into the air. Mikey threw himself between Raph and the kunai.
Donnie swung his bō staff while Leo stood in defensive position.
There was a loud scream from across the alley. "Mikey!" Leo called.
Mikey's body dropped to the ground with a kunai imbedded into the side of his plastron.

Raph looked at his older brother. “Is there anything we can do to help?”
“Donnie said not much, except let it run its course,” Leo sighed. Raph looked from Leo to Mikey with a worried expression on his face. “Raph, your nightmare won’t come true, Mikey is going to be okay.” He gave a half smile to his brother, “and if he is not you can personally beat me.”
“Now that is one beating I hope I don’t have to give,” Raph said with a small laugh.
Raph fell asleep with Mikey sleeping on his lap. Donnie brought over a stuffed bear Mikey loved when he was younger, he denied still sleeping with it, but after all that happened to him recently, Donnie knew he was sleeping with old bear again.
The next morning, Mikey woke up in a panic. Raph tried to calm him down, but when he went to touch him it caused him to freak out even more. Mikey’s eyes were wide and full of fear.

“I-love-you-bro,” Raph whispered quickly.
Mikey’s started shaking in Raph’s arms. His breathing was ragged. Raph could feel his brother’s heart racing. He could now feel his own heart racing. He looked around the room for help.
“D-d-…” Mikey could not even get the word out. Weakly Mikey tried to break free of Raph’s hold. This only caused Raph told hold on tighter.
“Mikey it’s Raph wake up!”
“No,” Mikey breathed struggling in Raph’s arms.
“Raphael,” Splinter called out. Just hearing his name Raph let Mikey go.
Mikey pulled his knees close to his plastron and wrapped his arms around them. “No,” Mikey said again, twisting in his sleep.
Donnie and Leo stood helpless in the doorway.

Donnie knelt down, "Let's get him back to the lair, we will be able to see better."
Leo went to pick Mikey up, but he stopped. "Donnie, he is shaking," he looked up at his purple clad brother.
"We need to get him back! I think he has been poisoned somehow," Donnie said trying to see if he could find any clues as to what happened.
"Raph canvas the roof and see if you can find anything that could hold poison,” Leo instructed.
"C-cold…” Mikey muttered as he tried to control his shaking.
Leo pulled Mike close to him. "We will get you warm," he whispered. Leo stood up holding the shaking Mikey tightly in his arms.
"I-I can walk," Mikey muttered.
"I'm sure you can, but I want to carry you," Leo said.
"Donnie, Leo, I think I found something," Raph held out syringe, "I found it by the door."

When Mikey woke up he rubbed at his head, he had a headache. Mikey sat up, but that a mistake. He began to cough, he felt wave a nausea come over him. Mikey ran to the bathroom.
“Mikey?” Leo called out, he went to the bathroom to see Mikey sitting on the floor, his eyes were glossed over, he has a few tears in them too. Mikey was having a hard time catching his breath.

“How can I be? I am not allowed out of the lair. Don’t forget what Raph said last week in practice about my skills with the bow. ‘Mikey could not hit a tree two feet in front of him’ are Raph’s exact words.” Mikey turned away from Leo.
“Mikey stop this!” Leo snapped. “We are just trying to keep you safe.”
“Keeping me safe will not make me any better. I know my skills are not as good as yours, you guys say it all the time and you all think I am annoying,” Mikey let out a heavy. “How would you like to be stuck back here for weeks?

Mikey did not need to go far to find his brothers. Leo was having a difficult time standing and Donnie was doing his best to keep the enemies away from his brother. Raph was in front of both of them; they were surrounded by legion of Foot Ninjas
Mikey jumped to a near by roof, fit an arrow into his bow and pulled back striking down some Foot.
“Arrows from the roof!” Leo called from his position against the wall.
“Great just what we need, Leo is useless and Mikey well, he’s not here.” Raph grumbled.

“You’re the one who pulled a Mikey and fell!”

“Will you two stop it!” Donnie shouted to his older brother’s while swinging his bō staff knocking over some Foot.

It had been a hour since Raph and Donnie went out on patrol and Leo had heard nothing from Mikey.
“Mikey?” he called, no answer. Leo turned around, and called again. “Hey Michelangelo! Where are you?” still nothing; could he be sleeping? Carefully standing Leo made his way to his brother’s room, nearly tipping over some books on his way.
Slowly he opened the door, Mikey was not in there. Leo hobbled all over the lair checking every room; except Master Splinter’s. There was no way he was telling Splinter Mikey was missing until he knew for sure.
Raph and Donnie slipped out of the sewers.
“It’s never been just me and you,” Donnie said as they climbed the fire escape. His older brother chose to ignore the comment.
“Rather you than Mikey. I don’t have to babysit you,” Raph mumbled

The night was dark, they were fighting the Foot. It was typical night, that was until something unexpected happened.
As the four turtles were fighting, they didn't notice a foot ninja pull out a dart gun. Leo had his back to Foot, but Mikey quickly noticed the dart flying through the air. He leapt in front of his oldest brother, he fell to the ground.
Leo turned around to see his baby brother on the ground, a dart sticking out of his arm, "guys! we need to go! Now!" Leo lifted Mikey up into his arms, he strangely felt lighter.
Raph turned his head, "what are you talking about Leo?" he saw his youngest brother out cold, "Mikey!" Raph run towards Leo, "what the shell happened Leo?!"
"H-he got hit my dart. . . saving me. . . ." Leo gasped.
Raph glared at Leo, "what the shell! how could you not note--"

“What was it about?” Donnie asked concerned.
“There were. . .thousands of pizza boxes! And they were all EMPTY!”
“Really Mikey? You call that a nightmare?”
“Yeah! There was no PIZZA Donnie! No Pizza!!”
“And here I thought it was a real nightmare. Get back to sleep,” Donnie said giving Mikey a playful shove, “if you did not have a concussion I would hit you like Raph does.”
“But it was thousands of boxes and no pizza!”
“Mikey if you go to bed right now I will buy you a whole pizza later,” Donnie buried his head under his pillow.
“It was a thousand EMPTY pizza boxes!”

“I see my poison has worked, Michelangelo is dead. He said he would rather die than tell me where Hamato Yoshi is so I made that happen.” Shredder’s words were cold and stung the turtles as he spoke. “Now who will tell me where to find Hamato Yoshi. If you do not tell me you will meet the same demise as your brother.”
Raph was losing to Shredder, one sai was lodged in the wall behind Shredder, his breathing was becoming raged. Raph pulled a shrunken from his belt and tossed them at Shredder, he blocked them.
Raph stepped back, Donnie stepped forward. Pressing the button on his bō staff turning it into a naginata, the blade flew out of the end of the wooden staff.
Mikey was pacing around the lair. He did not want to break his promise, but he had too. He had a strong feeling his brothers were in trouble. He startin

Despite just have woken up he was still very tired. Mikey was also hungry and still cold. Wrapping himself in his blanket he walked slowly to the kitchen. He passed the living room quietly as to not alert his brothers. He saw the box of pizza and grabbed a slice, he was too tied to warm it up, that and it would make noise. Mikey ate the cold pizza wishing it were warm. The only way to get warm pizza was to face his brothers, something he was not ready for.
Mikey went back in his room, after he ate his pizza he wrapped himself in his blanket burrito style and fell back to sleep.

"Thank you, April. Just lie still, Michelangelo. I must go get the first aid kit." With that, Splinter stroked his son's head once and went to the dojo.
April returned with an icepack and gingerly placed it on Mikey's forehead before she knelt down and applied pressure to the gaping gash on his cheek. "We're so glad you're okay, Mikey. How do you feel?"
"I've been better," Mikey's voice was very hoarse, but he managed a grin.
April firmly squeezed his arm. "I'm sorry."
Splinter returned to the living room with the first aid kit. April moved aside to allow him to sit. He lifted Mikey's head, removed the pillow and replaced it with his lap.
