TMNT: Ghost of a Chance - Chapter 2
Raph could tell it was morning both by the sounds of activity going on outside his door and the tense discomfort in his bladder. Groggily he kicked off the bundle of sheets tangled around his legs and rolled off his bed. He scooted for the bathroom through the hallway and across the common room and a wave of distress slapped him in the face when he found the door was locked from the inside.

“Man, I hope we left something for tomorrow’s customers, Murakami-san,” Donnie said looking exhausted, and he pulled on the edge of his belt in a futile attempt to loosen it over his stuffed middle.
“Don’t worry, there’s plenty. I planned ahead,” Murakami said with a knowing smirk.
With so much food weighing them down, it was a good thing they wouldn’t be patrolling tonight. But even though none of them was in a hurry to get to sleep, seeing as how most of their activities took place during the night anyway, April and Casey still had class the very next morning. And as Splinter pointed out, Mr. Murakami still had much to do before locking up.
