As they headed back to the sewers, Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo, Michaelangelo, and Roxy were jumping from rooftop to rooftop. Mikey, Donnie, Leo, and Raph were talking about pizza, while Roxy showed no interest.
"I'm telling you, just regular, plain, cheese pizza is the best." Mikey said.
"No, its the one that Marukami-san made. Pizza-gioza or something like that." Donnie said.
"That stuff was amazing." Leo added.
"I have to agree with Mikey on this one." Raph sighed.
'Why does everything have to be PIZZA related?' Roxy thought.
When the turtles reached the sewers, Master Splinter was there waiting for them.
"How did it go?" He asked.
"Awesome!" Roxy and Mikey said.
"I imagine it was sucessful." Master Splinter chuckled.
Roxy grinned as she walked into the training room.
Raphael and Leonardo looked at each other curiously before following her.
"What're you doing, Roxy?" Leo asked.
"Well, I'm new around here, I should catch up with you guys. I'm gonna do some more training. You guys seem much more...I don't know..professional at this than I am. I know we just came back from fighting the purple dragons, but I barely even beat the guys I was goin' against. Raph and Donnie had to help me out." Roxy explained.
"I see. But you've been training to much. You should take a break everyone in awhile." Leo sighed.
"Yeah, C'mon, Live a little." Raphael added.
"I will, when I'm just as good as you guys." Roxy said.
"Don't push yourself." Leo said. "Your doing this to much."
"I don't care." Roxy sighed.
Leo and Raph glanced at each other before smirking.
"You will care." Raphael said as he walked over to her.
"Huh?" Roxy said, stepping back.
Raphael picked her up and tossed her over his shoulder.
"Hey! Put me down!" Roxy growled, blushing lightly.
"Not a chance." Raph smirked.
"Told you you should've taken a break." Leo smirked.
"Aw, COME ON!" Roxy sighed.
"Sorry, not our fault that we're just that good." Leo said.
Roxy gave up on trying to break free of Raphael's grasp. Raph and Leo brought her into the living room with Mikey and Donnie watching.
".....Hey.." Roxy said, trying to prevent things from looking weird. But, that was a fail.
"What're you doing, Raph?" Donnie asked.
"Roxy here's been training to much, so Leo and I are trying to get her to take a load off." Raphael explained, setting her down.
"...Thanks." Roxy said sarcastically.
"Yeah Yeah." Raph smirked.
Roxy crossed her arms and so did Raph.
"Not amusing." Roxy sighed.
"Whatever." Raphael said.
Leo, Donnie, and Mikey glanced at each other as they smirked.
"What?" Raph asked.
"Oh, nothing." Mikey said. "Just thinking about how cute of a couple you two would make."
Raphael and Roxy glanced at each other before blushing lightly.
"...Y-You're just kidding..right..?" Roxy asked nervously.
"Suuuure." Mikey said.
Leo chuckled and gave Roxy a noogie. "Don't worry, we won't tell anyone."
Roxy blushed even more and turned away.
"Shut up." She said.
"Aw, c'mon." Mikey smirked. "I think its adorable!"
Raph glared at him as he blushed. "Shut it."
"Y'know, Sometimes you guys act like your a couple." Donnie added.
"No we don't!" Roxy and Raphael said, blushing. "We just.. JUST SHUT UP!"
"Alright! We'll lay off...for now." Leo smirked.
"You to should go out though." Mikey said.
"MIKEY!" Raphael yelled, about to hit him.
"Enough!!" Master Splinter yelled as he entered the room.
"Sensei!" Roxy jumped. "Uh, I'm gonna go now!"
Roxy then ran off into the training room.
"Roxy Wait..." Raphael started. "Oh, Nevermind."
"What were you fighting about?" Master Splinter asked.
"...Nothing!" Leo, Donnie, and Mikey said.
Raphael rolled his eyes. "They were messing with me and Roxy again."
"Ah. I see. Donatello, Leonardo, and Michaelangelo should know better." Master splinter said, glaring at them. Raphael nodded.
"They've been doing this since she moved in." Raphael said before walking into the training room.
Roxy was fixing the hanging dummy, which she had accidentally knocked off of the chain, again, but was having more problems than usual.
"C'mon.." She mumbled to herself. "What's wrong with you? Na, What's wrong with me? Pull it together Roxy.."
"Uh, Need some help?" Raphael asked.
Roxy jumped and dropped the bag. When she looked over and saw Raphael, she sighed in relief. "Geez, you scared me for a sec."
"Sorry." Raph said.
"Its alright." She said, picking up the bag again. "Need something?"
"Just, trying to get away from an awkward moment."
"I get it."
Roxy finished putting the bag on the chain and smiled. "There. Finally."
"Good. Now are you gonna punch the living daylights out of it again?"
"Very funny. And I think i've given this guy enough of a beating for today."
"You sure? You look like you need to punch something."
"Alright, you've got me there."
With that said, Roxy punched the bag again, smiling.
"Better." She said.
Raph chuckled a bit. "Good."
"Anyways, its getting late, maybe we should get to bed." Roxy said, leaving the room.
Raphael followed her. "Yeah."
Now he was just staring. Raphael just started staring at Roxy.
"Hello? Earth to Raph?" Roxy said, waving a hand in front of him.
"Huh? Oh, sorry." Raph said, coming back to his senses.
"Its alright. I'm gonna get to bed. I'll see you in the morning or something." Roxy said before walking into her room.
'I don't...' Raphael thought as he entered his room. 'I don't like her. I've never liked anyone.. But maybe I do..'
With that said, Raphael, Roxy, Michaelangelo, Donatello, and Leonardo went to sleep.
The next morning, Raphael and Leonardo were the first to wake up, like always. But instead of going into the kitchen, Raphael snuck into Roxy's room. He opened the door a bit to see her asleep. He smiled a bit and continued to stare at her.
"Raph!" Leo said, shaking him a bit.
Raphael jumped a bit and closed the door. "What?"
"What were you doing?" Leo asked.
"Uh..Nothing!" Raph said, standing in front of the door.
"Then why are you in front of Roxy's room?"
"You were spying on her, weren't you?"
"You LIKE like Roxy, don't you?"
"'Ha ha! Wait 'till Mikey and Donnie hear about this!"
"Don't you dare, Leo!!"
"Oh, I dare! Mikey!! Don-"
Leonardo was interuppted when Raphael put his hand over his mouth and put him in a headlock.
"I said, Shut up!!" Raphael growled.
What neither of the turtles noticed was that Roxy had been woken up by the sound of her door being slammed. She was about to open the door, but heard Raphael and Leonardo, so she decided to stay inside and listen. By now she was blushing madly. She had no idea that Raphael liked her.
"...If Roxy finds out then we're both dead!!" Raphael snapped.
"....y-your choking m-me.." Leo said, trying to fight him off.
Roxy finally worked up enough courage to open the door. "G-Guys?"
"Roxy?!" Raph jumped, dropping Leo, who was now gasping for air.
"...Uh...Wh-What are you doing?" Roxy asked.
"Oh nothing.." Raphael lied. "Just...Messing with Leo.."
"Then why were you yelling?"
Lucky for Raphael, Michaelangelo walked by. "Hey guys!"
"Mikey!" Raph sighed, changing the subject.
"Yeah? Need somethin' bro?" He asked, stopping.
"Uh..Why don't we go to the kitchen and make breakfast or something?" Raphael said, grinning sheepishly and taking Mikey into the kitchen.
Roxy just stood there, blushing and blinking. When she remembered that Leo was on the floor, she helped him up.
"Thanks." He said.
"No prob." Roxy said. "....But really..What was that all about?....Did I do something?..please tell me.."
"I wish I could." Leo said. "Let's just say, Raphael is really confused about life right now."
"Alright....wait...Raphael's letting Mikey cook..."
Roxy and Leo glanced at each other before laughing. "YEAH RIGHT!"
When Roxy and Leo entered they kitchen, they heard Raph and Mikey.
Alright, alright, you got me, I MAY have a SMALL crush on Roxy. BUT you have to swear on your LIFE that you do not tell ANYBODY! Got it!?" Raphael snappped.
Mikey gulped. "Um..I'd swear on my life if ROXY AND LEO WEREN'T IN THE ROOM!"
"WHAT!?" Raphael jumped, turning around.
Roxy's face was now red. She has had a crush on Raphael since she moved there. But..he liked her back. Now she didn't know what to do.
"Roxy!! How long have you been here?!" Raph asked, panicking a bit.
"Oh I think she's been here LONG enough!" Leo smirked.
Roxy and Raphael continued to stare at each other. They had no words. Roxy ran out of the room and into the training room, not sure what to do. Raphael just stood there, blushing.
"Well....This is awkward.." Mikey said, walking out.
"No kidding." Leo said, following him.
Raphael left the room and flopped on the couch. He grabbed a pillow and screamed in it.
Roxy was punching the daylights out of the punching bag and didn't plan on stopping until it was time for the mission.
