Life Disrupted.....

PLACE: The Lair

Before you learn the rest of Galileo's story, I thought it wise to let you know that the rest of the story is mostly monolog done by one character at a time, to help you avoid as much confusion as possible. Now, his story continues to unfold....

Place: The Lair Hot Topic: Group Argument....

Listen ya mook, I don't have to follow your orders, I'm tired of always sitting around while DragonLord and the Rank are always out there trying to get us!!! And let's not forget about Bonesteel the braindead hunter and Silver the stupid ape boy either... They're constantly after us. I can't take it anymore, I'm leavin.

Raph, you can't just go after our enemies, this isn't a game of who has the biggest muscles, it's a game of who has the most patience and intelligence. You can't just leave like this whenever you get mad all the time either.

Can it Leo!!!

No, you can it Raph!!! I'm tired of us always fighting like this. You need discipline.

Whoah ho ho Leo, Raph, take it easy bros. This is turning into something from Family Feud or worse.... Geraldo.... Now what you two need is some quiet time together... like.. say.. a friendly game of Monopoly perhaps... I still have those Rock em' Sock em' Robots I found...

Shut up Mikey!!! I don't wanna hear anything from you!!!

Can it Raph, Mikey might have a point... maybe we do need to communicate better... some togetherness might help... What do you say?

I say you're both mooks... Now get outta my way!!!

Fine, be that way Raph, but your anger is going to get you hurt one of these days.

Doooo you wanna play a game Leo? I don't have anyone to play Monopoly with......

You're on Mikey.... hehehe....

Place: Tooling the city on Raph's bike

Hot Topic: Angry as usual

I can't believe Leo and the others can just sit there while DragonLord and those other mooks are running the city... Why can't he just understand that we need to take action... buuut nooo... he just sits there like a good little ninja... waiting to be attacked... The only way to stop those mooks is to handle it the way we handled the Shredder... full, open combat.... I wish Splinter would understand, but I just don't understand him sometimes.... like when he goes all ninja master on me instead of just listening.... I need to get away for a while... not just tooling around the city.... I need to forget...

Place: The Lair

Hot Topic: Donnie's still mad about the frying of his computer....

Leo, I'm real touched that you tried to use my technology to find me when Dr. Quease and DragonLord captured me, but couldn't you have paid more attention on how to use the eye in the sky? I mean you fried my computer man, it's gonna take two weeks to fix at the very least....

Sorry Donnie, but we had to at least try....

I'll thank you not to touch it again until I fix it and until you learn how to use it, I mean, nothing's working on it right now... all of the blips show up on the screen at once and it's even registering extra blips....

Sorry man, what would you have done in our situation, if you didn't have all your brains?

I might have done the same thing, but I wasn't in your situation.....

Sorry Donnie...

Just keep your hands off of it for now, ok Leo?

All right...

Place: The Lair

Hot Topic: Venus is Meditating and Consulting Master Splinter in the Realm of Dreams.

I do not understand, Master Splinter... I have many questions about America. The others try to explain, but sometimes I do not understand their answers....

Mei Pieh Chi, you are young and in a new environment... You are adjusting quite well to your new surroundings. It is natural that you do not understand parts of America's culture, such as slang. You are trying to fit in with the others too quickly. Things like these take time.

I understand Master Splinter, but why can I not fit in?

Mei Pieh Chi... you fit in quite well... do not misjudge yourself or your ability to fit in. You are doing very well. You have spent most of your life in seclusion, knowing only Chung I and the temple. The others are simply trying to live life to its fullest, which sometimes mean that they do not make sense... even to me.

Thank you Master Splinter... I value your wisdom... You have helped me so much since Chung I passed away. I still miss him greatly, but not as much as I did before I met you and the others.

I thank you as well Mei Pieh Chi... if not for you, I would have perished at the hands of the DragonLord... Let us meditate now....

Yes... meditation... the true peace....

Place: The Lair

Hot Topic: Raph returns to consult Splinter and to talk with the others... until.....

So you decided to come back eh, Raph?

Yeah, I need to talk with Master Splinter...

You can't, he's meditating with Venus right now....

Again?

Yes Raph, again.... She deserves time to talk to Splinter too...

Yeah, I guess you're right... It can wait....

EEEEKKK!!!

Whoah, what's wrong Venus? What happened?

I... I don't know... I was meditating with Splinter... and then an image from my past came into my mind.... then... a feeling....

What was it Venus?

It was a feeling of great confusion.... like a great many questions needed to be answered... and then.... great pain.... and then, emptiness....

What could it be? Would Splinter know of this? Maybe he felt the same thing...

I did not feel it my students.... I must admit... I did not notice anything was wrong until Venus left the Realm of Dreams and heard her scream...

It was terrible... the feelings just swept over me like a wave.... they added onto my own confusion and pain until I could not concentrate... the pain was unbearable....

Do you have any idea where these feelings came from Venus?

No Donatello, I do not.... Though it does make me curious...

Are you alright Venus?

Yes, Master Splinter. I am fine. The feelings have gone now.

What you have described, Venus, sound to be the feelings of one who has been recently devastated... the feelings of a broken soul...

Place: Outside Lair

Hot Topic: We're back in Galileo's point of view... more monologue and thinking to self....

I'm outside of the Lair of the ninja master.... Master Toshi said that it would most likely be guarded.... I have to give this scroll to Splinter, the ninja master... the other turtles will be coming soon... I hope my trick works... hehehe... footsteps... always annoying to hear right outside your home when you live in secrecy... the other scroll... a challenge to the other turtles....

I have selected my weapons for the battle... My bolas to take out sai.... my whip to disable tonfas.... my hook to disarm a bo..... and my broadsword to battle with the katana.... Chung I told my master of the other turtles and their weapons... did he somehow know that I would meet them one day?

It is confusing me... I must clear my mind.... Mei Pieh Chi.... the turtle I saved.... I do not feel her presence... or it is weak... I can hear them... I must conceal myself...

Place: Inside Lair

Hot Topic: Sounds oustide the lair

Do you hear that Leo?

Yes, Raph.... I hear it....

What is it...? The Rank? Silver's goons? Bonehead?

Trained silence.... it has to be the Rank... either that or the Foot are back....

Let's go check it out... we should get Splinter and the others first... just in case it is an ambush...

For once you're makin sense Leo....

Master Splinter, there are sounds outside of the lair. Raph and I suspect the Rank... the sounds are the footsteps of trained silence... the weird thing is, the sounds seem deliberate....

Take Michaelangelo and Donatello with you, I cannot help you. Venus collapsed... she needs my immediate attention.

What's wrong with her?

I do not know Leonardo.

Go now, defend the lair.

Yes, sensei.

Place: Outside/Inside Lair

Hot Topic: At First Glance

There they are..... I can feel the sense coming from the one in red and the one in orange... can one of them be my brother? I must determine that later. This is my chance.... they just went down the tunnel....

Their lair.... it does not have the appearance that ninja warriors live in it.... but average, human teenagers.... well.... maybe just a bit cleaner.... I will set the scroll down in the center of the floor to present the challenge... but I must first introduce myself to the ninja master...

Place: The Lair

Hot Topic: The Introduction.

Are you Ninja Master Splinter?

Yes, who may you be, since you know who I am?

I am Galileo. I come from Master Toshi's retreat on Yashunori Island, 12 miles northeast of Hokkaido. I have a scroll for you. It is from my master. He was a friend of Chung I. I have been told that you were an acquaintance of his.

Yes, I knew Chung I. He and I conversed many times while dreamwalking. That is, up until his death. What brings you here?

I am searching for something of great importance to me. I am also here to help you if I am able to.

What are you searching for? Perhaps I may be able to help you.

You cannot help me with what I am searching for. I will tell you what it is later, but I cannot tell you at this time. I have come to your home. I have introduced myself to you, the master. I must now challenge your pupils. I am Dojin.... I must perform this rite before I can disclose any more information about myself and my mission.

A Dojin warrior... you seem young to be weighted with such a burden. I am familiar with the Dojin ways. I understand this rite you must perform.

Thank you Master Splinter. I can only perform this rite with your permission. Here is the scroll that my master has entrusted me to give to you. All is revealed inside... you must read it before consenting to the challenge.

Ahh... you have acheived the rank of full Dojin warrior and master early... you are young as well... seventeen years of age. What is this... you were a student of Master Toshi?!? He is well renowned for his skill as a Dojin Master. He has a daughter... Ti Shen Wah... how is she? I had heard that she was studying Dojin.

Ti Shen Wah is no more...... She passed away after making a fatal flaw during her test to become full Dojin... She was loved by Master Toshi, Chung I, and I...

You have such sadness in your voice.... You miss her greatly. I give you my condolences. This scroll also says that you are the adopted son of Master Toshi....

Thank you for your sympathy Master Splinter. I do miss Ti greatly... she was my adopted sister, but she was also my best friend. I am the adopted son of Master Toshi... He has cared for me and trained me for the last seventeen years.

I see.... you are..... Turtle?!? How can this be? I did not see a sixth turtle in the jar when it broke...

I shall have to reveal that to you later Master Splinter. I hear the footsteps of your returning pupils. I must present my challenge to them.

I understand. You have my consent to present your challenge to my students. It is now up to them to accept or decline.

I thank you Master Splinter.

You are most welcome Galileo. I hope to learn more from you about your master and your past. For now, I wish you luck....

Place: Outside Lair

Hot Topic: Searching for source of sounds

I don't hear anything now Raph... what do you think it was...?

I don't know....

I never heard anything Leo....

Quiet Mikey...

All's clear over here guys...

All right Donnie... what about you guys? Anything?

Nope....

Jinx... hehehhe....

Can it Mikey, I'm not in the mood....

Aww.... you're no fun Raph... y'know that?

I could've sworn I heard something...

Me too Leo..... me too...
