Dimensions Apart

By Allison Close

Fantasy / Romance

Enter a New Dimension Part 1

It was a normal cool breeze, full moon, starry night, in the middle of spring in the swears of New York City for the turtles as they trained with Splinter, their father and teacher, along with Casey and April. All of them happily spar with Splinter as the referee. That is until Donnie's computer starts sounding an alarm and flashing a bright red light.
"What's up with your computer, Donnie?" Leonardo, the blue masked turtle with the two Katana swords as his weapon, looks confused as Donnie runs over to the computer.
"It's an alarm to let us know the Kraang are up to something." Donatello, the purple masked turtle with the bow staff as his weapon, checks the computer for the directions.
"Ah ya~ boy! It's ninja~ time!" Michelangelo, the orange masked and youngest turtle with nunchucks as his weapon, cheers happily.
"Now we'll get some action." Raphael, the red masked turtle with Sai's as his weapon, smirks eagerly with a fire in his eyes.
"I wonder what their up to." April, a fifteen year old orange haired girl with a fan as her weapon, puts her hand to her chin as she goes into deep thought.
"Who cares red? We're finally going to kick some tin can butt." Casey, a fifteen year old black haired boy with sports gear as his weapons, clenches his hockey stick with a giant grin on his face as he pulls down his creepy golly mask.
Later on topside they jump from rooftop to rooftop. Yhey quickly make it to their destination and overlook it as they hide in the shadows made by the dim moonlight. There are a lot of Kraangbots walking around, prepping the portal to do whatever their plan is.
"What are they doing?" Leo whispers peeking over the edge of the roof.
"Whatever it is, it's nothing good." Raph tosses his Sai up and down in his right hand as Casey sits next to him retaping the bottom of his hockey stick.
"Wow, look at all that gadgetry they have." Donnie whispers to himself happily, earning him a few 'Are-you-serious' looks from his brothers and Casey.
"What an egghead." Casey mumbles to himself with a chuckle.
"What did you say?!" Donnie turns glaring at Casey. Casey is about to repeat himself when April shouts a glare his way shutting him up.
"Now's not the time Donnie." April sighs pulling out a pair of binoculars from her bag and hands them to him.
"Hey Leo, after this can we get pizza?" Mikey stares at him with begging puppy-dog eyes.
"Not now Mikey, we have a job to do!" Leo face palms as he quietly lectures Mikey, who starts to pout. Sighing at his youngest brother a bit Leo, the leader of the group, turns to Donnie, the scientist of the group. "Is anything happening yet Donnie?"
"Nope, nothing yet, I-Oh, wait a minute..." Donnie focuses on the Kranng a bit panicked.
"What is it Donnie?" Leo looks worried.
"Take a look at this Leo." Donnie hands him the binoculars. Looking through them Leo's eyes widen.
"This isn't good..." Leo hands the binoculars back to Donnie.
"Why? What's up Leo?" Raph and Casey raze an 'eyebrow' in curiosity.
"Tell me too. I don't want to be left out," Mikey whines childishly then gets hit on the back of his head by Raph. "Hey, that hurt!" Mikey rubs the back of his head as he stares at Raph.
"Then stop sayin' stupid things." Raph huffs while Casey laughs silently. Leo and April turn to them with a serious expression that seems to be telling them to shut up.
"The Kraang are opening the portal. We need to move now." Leo pulls out his Katanas. With that the gang goes on the move, jumping to the rooftop going on the attack. As they get to the rooftop the portal opens.
At the same time in a different dimension in a town called Boston. A girl, Alex, sits down to eat dinner with her family in the dining room. Alex is around fifteen years old with beautiful brown hair that falls straight to the end of her neck and friendly deep dark-blue eyes. She has a loving family including a mother, father, and a five years younger than her brother, Tim. They are all sitting at the table happily talking about their day to one another.
"And how was your day, Al?" Mrs. Moore smiles gently as she sips her tea.
"Great! I got a B on my Japanese test!" Alex smiles happily.
"And what about your track teams race, Al?" Mr. Moore takes a bite out of his food.
"Come on dad, it's track was there any doubt I'd win?" Alex gives a slightly playful laugh holding her hands up in a "V" for victory symbol. Her dad shrugs his shoulders with a small grin and goes back to eating.
After dinner Alex goes back to her room, which is decorated with all things Japanese and TMNT 2012. She quickly flips on the lamp, turns on her laptop, and plugs in her headphones. Alex lays on her bed on her stomach with her legs up and entangled. Not feeling like changing she brushes her hair behind her ears and happily watches the newest episode of TMNT 2012. She watches as the gang is taken over by mad living pizza and Mikey looks for a way to save them. Alex watches with amazement as she sips some Grape Pop while also nibbling, like a mouse, on some Pokey. She's so absorbed in the show that she doesn't even notice a bright-pink and glowing triangle appear hovering in the corner of her room. After the episode ends she takes off her headphones and turns to the odd glowing and flouting triangle.
'Wow, that looks like the Kraangs...' Alex walks over to it and slowly sticks her hand through it seeing her hand vanish inside.
"Wow! Amazing!” Alex pulls out her hand in amazement. “But what's it doing here?" she looks at it curiously. Just then she hears voice come through the glowing portal and the voices were very familiar.
"Leo did you see..."
"What was that?!"
"Dude! That was a hand!"
"Yeah Mikey! We all saw it!"
"Why a hand?"
"The ones known as the turtles along with those known as Casey and April most be destroyed. So those known as the turtles along with those know as Casey and April cannot ruin the plan that the ones known as Kraang have planned."
Hearing this Alex slowly backs away from the portal, like it can somehow sense her movements and attack.
'HOLY CRAP! THAT WAS THE TURTLES' Alex’s eyes widen. Before she can really react to this unthinkable situation she feels an icy cold and metallic robot hand on her shoulder trying to pull her through the portal.
"What in the..?! Let me go!" Alex screams struggling to break free, with no success.
"Dude, did you hear that?!"
"That sounded like a girl."
"Who cares?! Let's just kick some Kraang tin butts!"
'Wow, that's just so~ Raph.' Alex stops her movements for a secant with a deadpan face as she gives a sigh. Alex stops just long enough for the Kraang to yank her into their dimension and holds her tightly in their robot hands with her back against their freezing metallic bodies as she faces the turtles.
"Kraang has found the one known as Alex Moore, who is needed for the plan the Kraang has planned." Kraang mutters close to her ears.
"Let me go you tin head!" Alex struggles again kicking and hollering.
"Dudes did she...?" Mikey points to the portal after knocking a head off a Kraangbot.
"She came from the portal?" April throws her fan taking the heads off five more Kraangbots.
"But... she couldn't... I mean it's... it's not possible!" Donnie spins his staff taking out a few more Kraangbots.
"Yeah well she did Egghead!" Casey sends a Kraangbot head flying with his baseball bat.
"What the hell do the Kraang want with her?! She's just a girl!" Raph throws his Sais.
"Don't know, but she clearly doesn't want to be with them. Guys, save her!" Leo points the tip of one of his Katana's at Alex.
"Kraang will keep the one known as Alex for the plan that the ones known as Kraang have planned."
"Oh for the love of-!" Alex elbows the pink and squishy Kraang dead center of the face with all her might sending the pink thing flying and shutting down the robot freeing herself. Alex drops to the ground on her hands and knees as the bot falls the other way.
"You okay?" April runs over to Alex and helps her up.
"Yeah, thanks." Alex brushes the dirt off her jeans.
"No problem, just stay here. It'll be over soon. Okay?" April smiles and then goes back to fighting.
Just then Alex turns around to see another Kraangbot. Before she could say anything the robot gripped her throat tightly as he dangles her off the edge of the rooftop. Alex cringes while struggling to breathe and squirming in the Kraangbot's grip.
"Stop! What are you doing?!" Leo cuts the head off another Kraangbot staring at Alex’s situation.
"If those known as the turtles have plans to take the one known as Alex then the ones known as Kraang have no need for the one known as Alex." Kraang turns its head to Leo and then releases Alex causing her to fall at an alarming rate.
"NO!" Leo jumps cutting off the head of the last Kraangbot and dives for Alex.
Alex screams with her eyes closed tightly not wanting to see the ground get closer. But then instead of pavement she feels two arms catch her princess style. She feels the coolness of the skin and six fingers holding her gently yet they are still strong. Alex slowly opens her eyes to see... deep and mysterious ocean-blue eyes surrounded by a dark-blue mask. She relies it's Leo as she stares up at his face while they seem to be flying in the pale moonlight.
