OOC: I went because I was visiting New York and went into the city, they had a lot of weird stuff there X3 Another example would be a piece of wax that the artist literally bit into. I also saw a taxidermy rabbit on stilts.
Also, I'm going to skip ahead in this post, hope you don't mind X3
IC: "I'm pretty sure the artist had a snow shovel and was like, I wonder what will happen if I hung this from the ceiling" Nat said in response to Donnie musing. Of course, there could of been a deeper meaning behind the exhibit, but Nat just took it for what it was. "I'm pretty sure you could sneeze onto canvas and it could be worth something" Nat soon added in a joking fashion, "You could make a piece and call it Turtle Boogers in Springtime."
Even Raph cracked an amused grin at the thought of some of the exhibits they had there, he often heard people poke fun at modern art, stating how weird it was. So, Nat honestly had a point. Perhaps they could try their hand at it and create some modern pieces, how hard could it be?
However the turtle soon turned his attention to Layla, blinking when she mention that she was a fan of music, though she didn't have an exact favorite genre. Raph could understand that, he liking various types of rock music, there was too many diverse groups and artist out there to really dedicate yourself to a sole type. However, unlike Layla, he wasn't one for singing. Raph could sound decent sometimes, but he wasn't talented, if anything he was better with instruments.
Eventually though, the two groups did have to part ways, it was late and both had to return to their respective homes. However, they had plans to meet up again. It was rare for the turtles to meet people who proved to be so accepting of them, especially ones that were interested in them as individuals and not because they were humanoid turtles. Even Leo, the one who was normally the hardest to convince, seemed okay with the idea of meeting with the girls again. It made his brothers happy, and a good leader made sure to consider the feelings of others, right? So why not?
However, in the week that followed, the turtles found themselves to be pretty busy. Between the Foot, the Kraang, and finding information on Night Claw's gang; they had a lot on their plate. They still manage to fit some time in to visit the girls, mostly because of Mikey's insistence, but being so many places at one could prove to be very draining.
As of now, they were finishing up another patrol. Tonight had been uneventful aside from an attempted hijacking and purse snatcher, things which prove to be pretty mundane in the turtles' line of work. They had been hoping to find more of Night Claw's underlings, but they never did, suggesting that they may of been laying low for the time being. In their brief meeting with her, it was obvious that Night Claw was not stupid, she knew what she was doing when it came to running a gang. She probably figured that the turtles would be on the look out for her, so she instructed her grunts to stay hidden. That was the course of action Leo would of taken, if he was being honest.
"Okay, that about wraps up tonight" Leo announced as he looked to his brothers, everyone seemed tired and ready to head on home. Leo didn't blame them, he was eager to do the same. "Good job, everyone, but... Um, Raph. Next time try not to be so rough with the guy" The leader in blue said, looking at the turtle in question. "What did you want me to do, Leo? The guy was resisting" Raph stated, seeming to stand by his actions. "You knocked him into the car, he almost left a de- You know what, never mind, let's just go home" Leo responded with a sigh, not in the mood to argue with Raph. "Fine by me" Raph said, having his arms crossed against his plastron.
Without another word, Leo went to lead the way from the roof top they were on, hopping to the next with ease. Even when worn out, it was still important to keep on your toes, something could always happen on the way home.
