History

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

April O'Neil is a reporter on channel the 3 Eyewitness News station, as she reports on mysterious robberies spreading across Manhatten without any trace of the criminals insight. She believes this is caused by a mysterious gang of ninjas called the Foot, inspite of the disbelief of the chief of police: Sterns.

After almost being mugged by a couple of street gangs, she was saved in darkness by mysterious ninjas who gagged the gang and disappear without a trace. As the police arrive to apprend the crooks, she noticed a sai, right beside, and takes it in unaware that she was being watched to the mysterious being who wields it.

The next morning, she berates Sterns for him and the police for not doing anything about the robberies taking place, but Stern doesn't take a liking to April's protest.

As she was about to take a subway back home, she was confronted by the Foot whom under the leadership of there master the Shredder, demands April to silcene her reporting on them. After being outnumbered and unconioused, she was saved by one of the same warriors from the night before who came to retrieve his sai who happens to be a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle name Raphael.

After taking her unconcious body to his home in the sewers, she awakens with great fright of seeing him along with the other three Turtles: Leonardo, Michelangelo and Donetello, and their rat sensi: Splinter.

Splinter tells April the story about how the he and the Turtles were originally ordinary animals that were covered in a toxic waste of ooze that mutated them into the beings that they are, and Splinter trained them in the arts of Ninjistus which he learn from his late master Hamato Yoshi.

April decided to invite to the Turtles to her place to have frozen pizza which they immediately accept as pizza is their favorite food. As April was having a great time with them, they leave to return back to there home, but returned back to her place when they learn that their master is missing.

The next morning, the Turtles hide as April gets a visit from her boss Charles Pennington who happened to just bail his son Danny out of jail, and gently ask April to break her Foot story, after he secretly made a deal with Sterns to let his son off the hook from stealing, but April continue to persist, which ended with Charles telling April to not push any buttons, but April would not listen and continues on with her duties, which infuriated Sterns.

While back home from work, April decided to show Leo, Donny and Mikey around her apartment store while Raph was up on the roof to left off some steam after having a huge fight with Leo, but were confronted by the Foot who knocked Raph unconcious, leading the Turtles to fight off the Foot while April nurtures Raph.

The fighting continued down to the basement, as more Foot members keep coming leaving them outnumbered, but the Turtles do get a helping from vigulante Casey Jones whom Raph had encountered a few nights ago.

The place soon catched fire which forces April, Casey and the Turtles to retreat to an old farmhouse where April use to live for recovery, not before April witness in horror of what has happen to her apartment. At the farmhouse, April attempt to find a phonebooth to call her boss, but after hearing what Charles said on April's answering machine, Casey informed April that she was fired due to her not living up to what her boss insisted. This lead to April and Casey not getting along at first, but would soon develop a mutual attraction to one another. April spend most of her time drawing on each of the Turtles, while narrating to herself on how being back at her own farmhouse still feels like home.

After the Turtles spend the night in a campfire after getting a mediation from Splinter, they informed April and Casey the next morning that it is time to return back to there home.

While back at the sewers, they noticed Danny who revealed that he ran away, and asked if he could spend the night. April gave Danny a drawing she did on Leonardo, which unbeknown to anyone is that Danny works for the Foot, where after sneakly coming to see Splinter who was abducted by the Foot, the Shredder took the drawing from his pocket and realized that the Turtles had returned and rallies the Foot to go after them with Shredder deciding to lead this time.

As the Foot return to the sewers, to finished the Turtles, the Turtles were able to fend off better than before with April helping by knocking one with a pipe.

After the defeat of the Shredder, and several of the Foot being apprehended by the police, April was rehired by Eyewitness News, and shares a mutual kiss with Casey Jones.
