*Raph's POV*

As I turn the corner to the library, I see Maya leaning up against the library. She's to the side a bit so people dropping off books late don't see her.

I make my way over to her and she smiles when she sees me.

"Raph!" she exclaims and runs over to me. She takes my hand and pulls me into the alley. If this were anyone else dragging me, I would've yanked my hand out and punched them in the face, but it's Maya. I have no desire to react whatsoever. She could probably slap me and I wouldn't want to do anything. That's saying something.

"Why the sudden reaction?" I ask concerned and she just smiles.

"I was happy to see you," she admits with a slight blush on her cheeks. I can't help but smile as well. "Oh, so mister tough guy has a soft side?" she asks noticing my smile. I quickly plaster a scowl on my face.

"Maybe," I reply, but that smile finds its way back on my face. She simply giggles. "So, how was your date with Mikey?"

"It was fine. I thought this is our date. Why would you bring up my date with Mikey?" she asks and I shrug.

"I'm afraid I might have some competition with Mikey," I admit and smirk. "Never thought I would say that."

"Well, I don't really know yet," she responds looking up at the sky. She looks like something is bothering her.

"Do you maybe want to go get some pizza?" I ask and she laughs.

"How are we going to when we are giant mutated turtles?" she asks and I smirk.

"I've got my ways. Stay here. I'll be right back," I suggest and head over to the pizza place in town. I go around back. I was going to sneak in and maybe get something freshly made, but that's when I see April running towards me.

"Raph! Why are you out here?" she asks and I shake my head.

"No reason. But, if it isn't a burden, could you maybe get me a pizza?" I ask and force a slight smile.

"You're being polite for once? Sure," she replies and heads around to the front of the shop. A few minutes later, she comes back and hands me the box. I smile and head back to the alley next to the library.

"Here," I say and set the box down on the ground and I flip the cover up to reveal a fresh cheese pizza.

"Raph, how did you do that?" she asks in awe.

"April," I confess and she laughs.

"Of course," she responds and takes a slice while I do the same. I sit down next to her and when she finishes a few slices, she begins looking at the sky again.

"Is there anything wrong?" I ask and she shakes her head.

"No, I'm fine," I can tell she's lying.

"If you don't mind me asking, who is your sensei?" I ask and she looks over at me with her blue eyes staring intently at me.

*Maya's POV*

"I don't know his name," I lie. I see Raph sitting next to me with very few space between us. It felt nice, looking into his bright green eyes. They are so unique and different. I haven't seen eyes like his before and they're really cool. But, of course, I can't avoid the fact that I have to lie so I won't give away my secret.

"He never told you?" Raph asks in disbelief. "We seem to know a lot about Master Splinter, yet you don't even know your master's name?"

"He just never told me anything about himself. The only time I ever saw him was when I was training. I don't know anything about my sensei," I lie once more. I can't tell him my sensei is the Shredder.
