New Years Day, 2016.
Place ~ NYC Rooftops, six blocks from Time Square.
The miraculous thundering of the crowd died down after hours of anxious waiting for a celebration that came only once a year. Lights, music and sirens were all accompanied by the explosion of fire works. From the view of the rooftops, it would appear space had detonated itself, for a crack of smoggy haze blew gracefully through the sky like an endless ribbon. In the shadows, a lone figure stood to gaze out at the excitement. From below, the city dwellers retreated to restaurants and bars for continued partying so the streets may be cleaned.
It was Leonardo who paced across the buildings isolated rafter after several minutes of staring in awe. New years eve in the city was always a sight to be hold. But such particular pleasures as this are forbidden to him. Splinter had made it clear that he didn't want his four sons anywhere near the celebration of humans, for it was much to busy and made being spotted a risk. Nearing his nineteenth year of life, the ninja thought it would be well for him to observe the scene during patrol. It wasn't disobeying if he kept his distance, which he did. Satisfied, Leo broke out into a jog through the chilly winter weather, dodging the faint flutter of snow flakes and icy patches along the roof. He planned to seek out his brothers who would also be out at this time of night, stationed just a block away.
They weren't told of Leo's little stop, only that the leader would be catching up to them after dealing with some personal business he failed to share. Business in which Leo would have to worry about later.
She wasn't there.
She didn't come.
The wind started to freeze.
