Sallie and Splinter.

Sallie and Splinter are both people of patterns. So, when two people who live on their routines cause their routines to be altered - sometimes they merge.

In other words, Sallie is in Mike's suite with Splinter watching his stories. (They still only get parts of Sallie's attention, but she likes being with him here.)

After the credits start rolling:

"Can rats swim?"

"Of course," he says absently as he continues to scan the credits for names he recognizes. Or at least conglomerations of symbols that he recognizes.

"There is a reason we were the first creatures to flee a sinking ship. Because we knew we could outswim the humans."

"To what? Swimming?"

Now she's got his full attention.

"Prior to this moment I hadn't given it any consideration. It is not something I have done in quite some time and as I am now..."

He gives her a look.
A look that clearly shows that he's on to her.

"Do you wish to go swimming, Sallie?"

Uh huh, says Splinter expression.

Though that expression changes when he begins to think about this activity in a logistical way. Splinter's never had to wear a swimsuit before.

Splinter reaches out and gives her hand a gentle pat.

"I was merely considering the attire appropriate for the activity, though the prospect of martinis is a delightful one."

He likes the olives.

"I could ask Bar for a suit, or..." He turns to look down the hallway towards Michaelangelo's room.

"Dare we rummage?"
mnr_splinter: (Human Unsure)

"I will believe that when I see it," he mutters as he gets to his own feet and begins to make his way down the hallway.

Even though his son is not at home, Splinter still knocks on the door before entering the room.

Splinter is taken aback by what he sees.

"It...this is the cleanest I have ever seen this room."

True there are a piles of comics and books on the floor next to the bed, and yes there's a small pile of clothing where Mike clearly undressed the night before, but the room aside from that is damn near immaculate.

"Your guess is as good as mine," he says knowing her guess is likely to be the same as his.

"The bottom drawer," he says distantly as he looks around his son's room. It's...eerie.
mnr_splinter: (Human Smile)

[personal profile] mnr_splinter 2012-08-11 03:53 pm (UTC)(link)
He turns. The only change to his expression is the widening of his eyes.

"Sometimes I wonder about that boy," he says with a sigh. "Those will be suitable. If nothing else they will distract from my pathetic swimming."

Splinter takes the trunks, but keeps them at arms reach.

"I will change, pick up some provisions from the kitchen, and then meet you at your room. Any requests?"
mnr_splinter: (Human Pensive)

Several minutes pass before there's a knock on the door to Sallie's rooms.

Splinter has changed out of his usual maroon kimono, opting instead for one of blue. He might also be barefoot.

"As I believe we'll ever be."

He bends and picks up a familiar picnic hamper that he'd placed down on the ground.

"Shall we?" he offers her an arm.

It's always fascinated Splinter how this portion of the Lake is always sunny, mild, with a fresh ocean breeze.

"Lovely, just lovely."
