Carefully, he slipped the note under his older brother's door. He hoped he would see it before he left his room. He didn't write as much, but he meant every single word. Every single misspelled word, but every word nonetheless!


He saw Mikey sitting in his usual seat at the counter. He knows he said they would never do it again, but it would mean so much more than a simple "thank you". Coming from behind him, Raphael embraced his youngest brother. It was a rather tight hug, but it was best. Michelangelo hugged back.

"Thanks, little bro."

"I love you. And I mean it, Raphie."

"Hey, just because we both wrote it down does not mean ypu can say it out loud!" The temperamental turtle's face flushed.

"Sure... Raphie." The smallest of the turtles began to run from the beating sure to come, but he knew his brother meant well. Using his words was always hard, but writing was the best way to express his true emotions.

And Mikey wouldn't want to have it any other way.
