Leonardo shifted beneath the robes he wore and rubbed his fingers on the fabric. It was weird to be dressed in anything besides his mask. He gazed down at the kimono he wore. Well...sort of kimono. It used to belong to Splinter and had been very traditional...but it had been altered into a more westernized shirt and pants. Not just for the sake of where they were, but also so Leonardo could easily slip in and out of the attire.

It just meant the beginning of winter: the welcome of snow and cold days and the awkward month between October and December. And even then, that didn't mean much, either. It was just the five of them, they never really had to celebrate anything. They showed their thanks every day and because they ended up celebrating their birthdays on the same day besides Splinter, they didn't have much to look forward to there.

He left the furniture alone for the most part, since it had been there even before him and April had married and moved in. Furniture from her grandmother and aunt, he presumed. The house had belonged to April's grandmother once upon a time ago, and it was passed on to April's aunt. And naturally, it now belonged to them.

It is commonly said that doctors make the worst patients. This was certainly true for the Hamato family. Don was the best they could ever ask for in a doctor when it came to taking care of them when they became sick or injured. On the other hand he was also the hardest to deal with when he himself fell ill.
Flu season came around every year and this year it had decided to strike Don with a vengeance after avoiding it for so long. He had been laid up in bed for over a week now. At this point everyone’s nerves were starting to get frayed. Don was tired of being cooped up in bed and everyone else was tired of dealing with a sick and ornery Don.
Raph was the last one left that had any patience left to deal with the genius turtle. This was primarily because Don was his mate and they had committed to be there for each other no matter what and Raph was not about to go back on that promise.

“W'phie?” Mikey responded, pointing at Raphael snoozing on the floor in front of a toy car he had been playing with.
“Waphie use potty too,” Leo said.
“D'nnie?” Mikey pointed at Donatello, who sat playing with a bunch of blocks next to Raphael.
“Donnie too.” Leo checked the diaper and saw that it was clean so he picked it up. “Put back on.”

Splinter looked at the clock and sighed. It was that time of the afternoon again: time to give Michelangelo that accursed medicine. He had contracted a sort of allergy infection in his eyes and needed to be given eye drops every afternoon. The issue was that the little one hated them and put up one heck of a fight every time Splinter tried to give them to him. Drops that should take no more than five seconds could take up to ten minutes and it was terribly frustrating for the already stressed-out father.
He dried off the final plate from the lunch time dishes and put it away in the cabinet and then went to the bathroom to retrieve the eye drops and a rag.
“Michelangelo,” he called as he turned off the light and exited the bathroom. “Come here, please.”
He went into the living room where his five-year-old sons were playing and confronted the littlest one who was coloring a picture on the coffee table.
“Michelangelo, it is time for your eye drop

Mikey and Donnie sat cross-legged across from each other on their bedroom floor. Splinter had told Donnie to help tutor Michelangelo so that he could read and understand his letters better.
Donnie flipped through his hardback alphabet book, reminding himself to pay particularly close attention to the letters that Mikey seemed to have trouble with. He flipped to the letter “B” first.
“Okay, Mikey, what is this letter?”
Mikey giggled. “That kinda looks like a butt.”
Donnie sighed. “No, Mikey...” an idea dawned upon him, “...actually, we could work with that. What is the beginning sound in 'butt'?”
Mikey blew a raspberry. “Toot!” he laughed.
Donnie groaned. “No, Mikey, pay attention. What is the beginning letter sound in the word 'butt'?”
Mikey sounded out the word. “B-b...'B'!”
“Right! Good, now you can use that to remember the letter 'B' from now on. 'B' looks like a butt.

The first test.
"Veronica!" My older sister, Vie screamed as I slumped to the ground. She bent down to pick up my carcass. Blood was dripping from my chest and mouth. My eyes were emotionless. I can't believe it but ..I just died. My soul, or should I say 'I' watched in horror as my sister pulled my body close and bawled. I never saw her like this. Ever. Not ever. It was horrible. Just horrible.
I know you must be confused right now, so I'll introduce myself. My name is Princess Veronica. I'm currently 15, and yes, I just died. It all happened so fast, all I remember was a laser pointing at my sister and then the sharp pain going through my little heart. That's all I remember, but there must be more to it. I was about to cry when suddenly a light hit me. I looked up to .Death literally staring me in the face. I jumped back. "Stay away from me!" I screamed as I placed my hands over my face.

The Sunday after Dally and Johnny died was the worst thing I ever lived through.
It was the worst thing any of us ever lived through.
Two-Bit didn't crack no more jokes like he used to... stopped drinking beer...
Steve just sat around all day. It was almost as if I went to bed and he was on our couch, and when I woke up, there he was in the same position.
Pony spent more time than ever writing. Don't ask me what it is, he won't show nobody.
Even Darry skipped work the first 3 days. He was too tired.
It felt like barely any of us ate anything. Two-Bit didn't even swat away his 13-year-old sister Katelynn when she started to bug him in our front lawn.
Right now we're just sitting here in the "living room" of our house. Nobody's saying anything. It's sorta creepy. But nobody, not even me, feel like saying nothin'. I guess the fact that two of our brothers are gone just makes everything bad for us.

Stop I say!
Did you really, really mean it?
Do you really want it that way?
What do I mean?
You were about to say 'grow up!'
Don't you lie to me!
Growing up means losing luck!
When you're young
Everything's a given!
Everything's ready for you
No walls to be updriven!
Why grow up?
What's wrong with now?
Is it something from the future?
Can it not wait, somehow?
You grow up and it's over!

You grow up and you look back,
eyes filled with remorse!
Everything's gone harder!
You're suddenly alone!
And how, how dare you sit here?
Sit here, young, and moan?
Fine, if you wish to grow up,
I wish to grow down.
Yes, correctly you heard me.
I'd like to switch around.
I'd like to sit in elementary
While jotting down my notes
Add two plus two and divide
And circle all red boats.
I'd like to have a bedtime!
And warm meals made for me!
Why if I could have this,
how happy I would be!
See the words that come?
From from a grown-up unlike you?

Dallas turned to the teenager slanted against an alley wall. Foot supporting him on the wall, cigarette hanging out of the left corner of his smirk.
Dallas glared. "Didn't know it concerned you." he turned and kept walking.
"Hey! Kid! Chill the fuck out, would ya?" the teen mirrored his pace walking down next to him. He took a drag on the cigarette and blew smoke in Dally's path. Dallas stopped and gazed at him.
"You seem real tough. We should hang out."
"Why would I hang out with you, huh? I got my own problems to take care of." Dally's fists balled up.

"Come back soon, now!" the bartender called.
Dallas pushed the door of the small, crowded resteraunt open and began his long walk back home. Buck had been getting on his nerves lately, insisting that he should know what it is that goes on in Dally's room, that things break constantly. It wasn't his fault the whole damn world made him so angry all the time...
He hadn't even been able to get himself drunk today at the bar. Maybe it was the fact the bartender was catching on to Dallas' real age, or maybe it was the 40 year old prostitutes that made Dallas just want to go home. Not Buck's. His actual father's house.
'It'll all go as always,' Dally thought, as he walked past the streetlights switching on as the day faded slowly. 'I'll walk in, and he'll be drunk as a skunk, twice as smelly, and won't even know who I am.' he jaywalked down the street.
