74. Are You Challenging Me?
Don felt his frustration level start to rise but somehow pushed it back down. Getting aggravated with Mikey wasn’t going to help; the younger turtle had a special way of thinking about things.
“I know you see everything,” Don said. “Don’t you think it’s time to stop keeping some of those secrets? I’ve already got an idea about Leo and Raph because of what I overheard in the lab.”
“You don’t understand,” Mikey said. “I can’t tell you ‘cause I don’t know for sure. I just know they gotta work it out themselves without a lot of other people around.”
“Mikey, are they trying to be involved with each other?” Don asked, standing over his brother and trying to will the truth out of him.
“Kinda depends on what you mean by involved,” Mikey answered, not appearing at all intimidated by Don’s proximity.

The day started out as any other day. Well, no, I should correct that; the day started with me waking at 5:00am and thinking about Karai. The way her black hair swings in the wind in intoxicating patterns, how her amber unflinching eyes would throw a challenge at me every now and again when we met atop the roof tops... Without anyone's knowledge but ours, and our own pledged secret.
She's so beautiful... I just wish that one day, after our challenge, she'd lean over, and with those bright red, rose lips, plant a kiss right onto mine-
I shook my head. I needed to control this insomnia. Three hours sleep will do me no good, I thought with

Raph remained unconscious through the night and Leo did not move from his bedside. When Don realized that Leo wasn’t going anywhere he’d pulled a chair over so his brother could at least be comfortable.
Somehow Mikey had talked Leo into eating something, a feat that no one else had managed, not even Master Splinter. Don decided that in some ways his youngest brother was a genius too.
Don had cared for Raph’s wound as best he could. He had a secondary fear that Raph’s carapace might have been cracked during the explosion so with Leo’s help they had rolled Raph onto his side. While Leo held him, Don had examined Raph’s shell and then breathed a sigh of relief upon finding it undamaged.
Master Splinter had spent considerable time in the infirmary, standing to one side as Don worked. This silent observation hadn’t unnerved Don in the least, in fact he felt reassured knowing that his father was there. Don could al

52. Deep in Thought
Warning: Contents could possibly be construed as TCest
Deep in thought, Don approached his lab, his mind a whirlwind of confusion over Mikey’s odd warning. His older brothers hadn’t been fighting as far as he could tell, so Mikey telling him to leave them alone made absolutely no sense. As the family’s designated physician, Don had a duty to care for Leo’s injury, no matter what other things might be going on.
He was so pre-occupied that when he stepped into the lab it took him a minute to notice that Leo was seated on a table with Raph standing between his legs. A box containing medical supplies was open on the table next to Leo, and their bloodied masks lay on the floor by Raph’s feet.
When he neared his brothers, Raph’s arm shot straight out at him, palm showing. His eyes however remained glued on Leo.
“Back off egghead, I got this,” Raph growled.
“I should look at it,” Don pro

For the first time that night, Don questioned his headlong rush into the middle of Raph and Leo’s business.
His older brother didn’t say a word, merely gazing at Don through eyes that seemed to glow with a neon blue intensity. Leo was wearing nothing; his weapons, gear, and mask gone.
Don wasn’t used to seeing his brother like this anymore. Since Leo had become leader he never walked around without his gear. Somehow being ‘naked’ made Leo appear more open and vulnerable; younger than his years. Perhaps that was why Leo’s habits had changed, if he wanted to garner respect, he had to look mature.
The silent tableau held for another minute before Leo turned and walked back into his own room, leaving the door open. It didn’t require genius to understand the implication; Leo wanted to
At 3am, the lair is pretty quiet, even Mikey is asleep at this time. I stare down at my little brother as he snores softly on the couch, hugging a comic to his chest. A gentle smile threatens, and since no one else is around, I let it show. Grabbing a ragged blanket off the back of one of the chairs, I toss it on him and turn off the TV. With that light gone, the lair is plunged into a gloomy darkness lit only by Don's screensavers from his little aclove.
But there is another light shining. A faint glow coming from the dojo. I can't stop myself from being drawn to it. I know it's him. We both have occasional bouts of insomnia and some nights are worse than others.
I stop at the doorway, allowing the shadows to conceal me from his immediate view. Regardless, I know that he knows that I'm there. With all the training we've done throughout the years, we can sense each other perfectly, even when blindfolded.
A silent debate rages within me. Should I walk in or turn and go? My fe

When In Stockholm
The word echoed in Leonardo's brain, reverberating like a plucked guitar string. Each repetition added a layer of emotion, already so thick he could barely comprehend it.
What he did know is that he loved Raphael. He had always loved him, from his earliest memories, and in the last few years it had changed and deepened. He knew exactly why and how he loved him. But out of respect, he had gone to Splinter first.
Splinter had said no.
The weight of the rebuttal suddenly shifted, and Leonardo held out a hand, grasping at the wall to steady himself. He had gone to their father first out of deference, to be polite, and father had thrown his confession in his face. Worse, had told Leo to release his obsession.
And ultimately, father had called it a sin- how could he call it that?
Leonardo paused by the dojo, leaning against the doorframe. Raphael was inside, reliab

"Thought 'bout what Leo said?"
Donatello glanced away from the van's motor in irritation. He and Raph had returned home early from an uneventful patrol, and were enjoying their time alone together.
Or, they were, until Raphael brought that up. Donnie sighed, rubbing his face and unknowingly smearing the oil on his forehead.
"I know it's taking an extended amount of time for me to get comfortable with the idea of including Mikey," Donnie said apologetically. "I'm sorry. I'm working on it, I really am-,"
Raphael snorted a laugh. "Don't gotta be sorry to me. I was just wonderin'."
Donnie sighed again, resting against the bumper dejectedly. He'd expected the gentle nudging from Leo, but not from Raph. "I'll sit down with Mikey tonight and-,"
"Hey, Don, relax," Raphael chuckled, leaning forward to rest an arm around his shoulders. "I ain't in no hurry, trust me."
"What?" Donnie shifted to look up at him, confused. "

The look in Raph’s eyes and the tone of his voice was a warning that Don was treading on very dangerous ground.
A physical altercation with Raph was a bad idea; Don was weaponless and it wouldn’t have mattered anyway. In such a small space as Raph’s bedroom, the bo staff’s reach wouldn’t have done him much good.
“Before you start calling me out on my behavior Donatello, maybe you should take a look in a mirror,” Raph said.
“What’s that supposed to mean?” Don asked, suddenly feeling leery.
Raph jabbed a finger towards the lair. “You and Casey and April, that’s what I mean,” he said harshly. “You’ve been panting after April from the minute you saw her and then Casey starts to pay you a little attention and you act like you’re in heat.”
“I do not!” Don exclaimed indignantly. He could feel the color rising on his face. “I’ve bee
