Chapter 2: In Love?!
April unlocked the door to her apartment and let herself and Mackenzie in. The two girls sat on the couch and started talking about what happened over the past two years. There was a knock on the door and April got up and opened it and it was none other than Casey Jones. "Hey April." "Oh hey Casey. What are you doing here?" Mackenzie looked over and sees Casey Jones at the door.
I look over April's shoulder and see a girl with dark brunette hair and dark green eyes. Then I noticed that she was wearing a uniform, a Foot Clan uniform! But she looked too innocent to be in that gang. "Oh Casey, meet my lost cousin, Mackenzie." April said and I waved to her and she waved back. Then it hit me, that girl went missing for two years! That gang must have hidden her good enough to not find her.
I acknowledged Casey's presence but, I was thinking about something else. Or rather...someone else. The turtle that wears the red mask. He wouldn't leave my mind! His emerald eyes, his large muscles, and his voice...I can feel my heart beating fast when I was thinking of him. Hang on...am I in love?! I've never been in love before! I didn't notice my face turning red until April pointed out my already flushed red face. I stopped blushing and we talked till it was about 11. I was starting to get tired and I went straight to bed.
The next morning, I was so happy I was with my cousin. I woke up to the smell of pancakes and got up and walked into the kitchen. April turned and looked at me, "Good morning Mac, how'd you sleep?", she asked. "For once, wonderful. Beats the floor any day." We laughed and joked like that all morning till she had to go to the news station and she invited me to come along. Of course I did and as we entered the building, here comes Vern running right up to us and he immediately recognized me. "Oh God, that isn't who I think that is?" "It is Vern." I responded back to him and he groaned in utter annoyance. Before I was in the Foot, I come to New York with my parents and sister and I managed to pull pranks on Vern every time whenever I visit April. Vern told April that they have a news report to shoot and I tagged along and stayed behind the camera as April was doing her job. After she was done, she said she'll take me to see those turtles again. The real truth was...I wanted to see one of them again. He wore red...and his emerald green eyes, he might be the one but, I had to see for myself. No, I had to know for myself.
