Moving Day.

Splinter doesn't really own much of anything, but whenever anyone moves - whether down the hall or across the quadrant - it's always a gargantuan rutting event.

This may be why Sallie has recused herself from the lifting and instead is making pasta salad for Splinter and the boys. Keeps her busy.

(And prevents concerned glances over any heavy thunks she hears coming from her their living room.)

Nothing illustrates how well a group of people have trained to live and work as a team quite like moving.

Which explains why Mike slides into the kitchen mere seconds after a rather loud profane bellow bursts forth from his brother.

"Yes," he says inching his way towards the doorway from the kitchen into the great room. He's flat against the wall as he leans over to peer into the other room.

Several things happen at once:

"Eeep!"
whoosh
thunk
whumph

A black steel throwing knife is now embedded in Sallie's door fram, and Mike is belly down on the floor.

You mean you're not used to us yet? I not sure if that makes me want to question your sanity or praise your innocence.

"Sorry Raph," calls out Mike in the sing-song tone of youngest siblings everywhere.

Raph appears in the doorway, glares at his brother, before removing his knife from the doorframe and disappearing as suddenly as he'd appeared.

"A fair point," he says raising his arm for emphasis. The rest of him remains on the floor. Face down on the floor.

Mike goes very still in the wake of her admonishment, but then lazily rolls over and kips up to his feet.

"Yeeeeeees'm?" he says running a hand through his mussed up hair.
mnt_mike: (Bwah?)

[personal profile] mnt_mike 2013-07-10 09:36 pm (UTC)(link)
He looks towards the doorway into the Great Room and listens.
"Yeah, I could do with some food I guess."
mnt_mike: (Sad pout)

Mike's quiet as he moves, and not just because he's a ninja, though admittedly that helps. Especially with the amount of mental control it takes for someone to completely seal off their thoughts from someone they're partly telepathically connected to.

Of course...that kind of changes as he's closing the dishwasher.

"I'm not mad, just so you know."
mnt_mike: (Caught off guard)

[personal profile] mnt_mike 2013-07-11 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
He turns to look at her, unsure if that was sarcasm or not.
mnt_mike: (Caught)

[personal profile] mnt_mike 2013-07-11 04:00 am (UTC)(link)
"I just..." Words fail him. Thankfully thoughts do not.

Wasn't expecting to feel so blindsided.
mnt_mike: (Weary)

[personal profile] mnt_mike 2013-07-11 05:04 pm (UTC)(link)
"I bet," he says as a fraction of his usual grin returns. Mike takes the bowl with his free hand, he hasn't relinquished the silverware yet.

That might've been the first time anyone's ever asked Splinter to live somewhere.
mnt_mike: (Say whut)

[personal profile] mnt_mike 2013-07-11 05:12 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm glad someone is.
But it's all faux bluster. There's a very real ball of confusing thoughts and emotions that starts to bleed in around the edges of Mike's section of the link.

Joy. Loss. Anxiety.

Mike prides himself on being unflappable. On being utterly devoid of shame. Which means that there are precious few people in the multiverse who've actually see him blush.

Sallie is now one of those people.
He blushes because rationally he knows what Sallie is telling him, but viscerally...the feeling remains. And he's ashamed of that. Ashamed enough to blush.

"...'kay," he says quietly. Initially he shies away from her touch, but eventually allows it.

He shakes his head at her question.
