Hidden by the shadows beneath the leaves,
I smile; at peace with the world,
As your corpse smiles back at me...

He was awake and he was smiling, despite his weakness.
He would heal and he would be alright.
Raphael watched, from a few feet away, as Donnie gave their oldest brother yet another checkup, talking about the damage done, about healing times, about this and that and it all turned to white noise in his ears.
With infinite patience, Leonardo sat on the couch, answering whatever Donnie would ask him, smiling reassuringly at the youngest, at April, even managing a small grin for Casey.
When steel-blue orbs rose to find his, Raphael dropped his gaze away and off to the side, unable to meet his brother's eyes.
April blurted about Raphael's vigil at Leo's side and the automatic reply came before he even thought about it. “Eh, it was nothing.”
Leonardo kept his eyes on Raph, noticing the way he tensed, obviously feeling his eyes on him. He smiled.
“Still. Thank you, Raph.” And his brother only tensed more, lips thinning out, giving a stiff shrug.
