"April!" Venus cried once April had entered the room. <p> "Hey Venus. Sorry I took so long,"April replied as she sat down on her bed alongside Venus, "Here's some food." April handed Venus the plate. Venus took it but did not eat any of it. <p> "Don't you want any, April?" <p> April shook her head. "I'm not really hungry." April turned to face Venus who was chowing down on the spaghetti. "So, what's your story? How'd you get to where you are today?" <p> Venus paused and said,"I was mutated a few months ago. It was night and I was outside in Central Park by the pond as usual, when this class canister full of green liquid fell on my head. I turned into this." Venus gestured to herself," I went into hiding. I found a safe place to stay and here we are now." Venus took another bite. She swallowed and spoke: "I've been alone for a long time. I was abandoned and I learned to fend for myself. Literally. Call me crazy, but there are other mutants in this city." <p> April raised an eyebrow,"You don't say." <p> Venus nodded,"These weird robots that talk really weirdly come after me a lot. It's crazy." <p> "The Kraang." <p> "What?" <p> April shook her head. "The Kraang are aliens from another demension. They tried to mutate the entire planet once." <p> "But why would the Kraang be after me? It's not like I owe them money or anything." <p> "Venus, I think I know why the Kraang are after you." <p> Venus set the plate aside. April took a breath. "There are other people like you." <p> "Mutants?" <p> "Yeah. There are plenty of mutants running around New York. A lot of them are bad and work for a villain named Shredder." <p> "There's gotta be someone fighting back, right?" <p> April nodded. "There is. They might be able to take you in. They'd be able to train you to defend yourself against the Kraang." <p> Venus nodded. "I think I could use a place to stay." <p> "But I gotta warn you: they're mutants. I don't know how they would react to you." <p> Venus grinned,"But that's a risk I'm willing to take." <p> AUTHOR'S NOTE: Hi!! Next part is on the next res. Leave a comment.
