Summary: Mikey and Leo try to get under Raph's skin
Day: September 8
Disclaimer: TMNT does not belong to me.
Another day meant another challenge to face and overcome. Leo and Mikey were the ones that planned on presenting the challenge however and it was Raph that they had in their sights that would have to deal with what they were planning on dishing out.
In the living room Raph was seated on one end of the couch. He was trying to read a magazine about motorcycles but it was clear that he was struggling to keep his focus. This just screamed out to Mikey as the perfect time to test Raph's patience and by the look on Leo’s face, Mikey wouldn’t be alone in his venture.
"It's just too good of an opportunity," Mikey whispered to Leo with excitement shining in his eyes hoping that Leo would be willing to play along.
The smile that Leo gave showed that he was game in testing Raph's patience to see if they could get under his skin. Sure steps took him over to the other end of the couch from Raph with Mikey following right behind on his heels.
“I was thinking that we should go out on a date tonight,” Mikey said loudly enough for Raph to hear as he plopped himself down onto Leo’s lap. “Just you and me. Out of the lair. Topside with all that space to run around in. That just sounds like the perfect night.”
Mikey was doing his best to rub in the fact that he and Leo could leave the lair and go wherever they wanted to while Raph couldn’t. Two days ago during practice he had gotten more rough with Mikey than he needed to be and Master Splinter had grounded him. This in turn made for perfect ammunition for teasing.
“So where do you think we should go to eat?” Leo asked his mate. “If we’re going out on a date than we need to go somewhere to eat. How does Chinese food sound?”
Mikey playfully stuck out his tongue at Leo suggestion. “I was thinking pizza.”
Leo leaned forward and attempted to nip at Mikey’s exposed tongue. “If you want pizza than that is what we shall have.”
“Does that mean that we can also stop at the comic book store?” Mikey asked bouncing up and down a bit in excitement. “They’ve got some new issues that I have been wanting to pick up.”
Leo cast a covert glance over to the side and could see Raph’s hands getting more tensed as they held his magazine which was the only sign that his patience was being tested and it was wearing thin. As much fun as he was having, he didn’t want to push Raph too far.
“Let’s head out than Mikey,” Leo announced as he stood up almost dumping Mikey out of his lap. “We have the whole night ahead of us and so many places to go so we better get started.”
Taking Mikey’s hand Leo led his mate out of the lair and up towards the street. As much fun as it had been to test Raph’s patience, a date with his love would be far more enjoyable.
