Hey fellas! Halloween is coming to town! So… wait for a TMNT Halloween one-shot soon!

I don't know if you have seen TMNT Short chapters on 4kids TV… if you haven't, well… you can search them on YouTube… why I'm saying all that stuff? Well… this fan-fic is about a teddy bear… Leo's teddy bear. Inspired on a "Midnight Snack" scene... oh and on a Yunuen fan-fic!

Repeat: I'm not the turtles' owner… DAMN YOU NICKELODEON!

Me and My Teddy

"Very good my sons, you have done well today. Tomorrow we will resume your training at noon… my favorite soap opera is having a marathon… you can go rest now" Splinter said as he left the dojo.

Mikey started to giggle.

"What's so funny bonehead?" Raph asked angrily.

"Hehe… nothing… hahaha… it's just… hehe… soap opera…. Hahahaha"

"Hey! Even sensei needs a little time for himself" Don replied.

"*yawn* I'm dead tired! I need my beauty sleep…" Mikey said

"Heh… you'd need to sleep forever if ya wanna change that ugly face of yers… Hahahaha" Raph teased.

"Hey!"

"Ok, ok… stop it guys… we better go to sleep… I'm tired too" Leo said with a long yawn.

The guys left the dojo… before their respective baths… they made their ways to their rooms.

Midnight… silence, silence all over the lair… only Raph and Mikey' snorts could be heard.

Suddenly… the alarm sets on…

"Guys! Troubles on the west side of the city…" Don yelled from the lab.

Raph and Mikey ran down stairs…

"What is it this time?" Raph asked.

"For the images of the security camera… some gangs doing robbery… apparently nothing too serious"

"Ok… so let's kick some shell!"

"Eh guys? Where's Leo?" Mikey asked.

"Yeah… he's always the first one getting up for an emergency…"

"Mmm… I didn't think the "Fearless Leader" was that tired…"

"I'll go for him… you guys wait us there…" Mikey said.

"Got it…" Don and Raph left the lair.

The orange masked turtle went upstairs… when he arrived to Leo's room he opened the door slowly…

"Hey Leeeeoooo… wake up… There's a… huh?" Mikey stared at his sleeping brother in surprise…

Why? The reason… Leo was peacefully asleep… hugging a teddy bear!

"What da… shell…?" Mikey whispered.

"Leo… has… a teddy bear…?" Mikey tried not to laugh.

Leo started to stir and rubbed his eyes.

"*yawn*… what… what happen… Mikey? ... Eh! Mikey?"

"HAHAHAHA! NO WAY! HAHAHAHA! YOU SLEEP WITH A TEDDY BEAR! HAHAHAHA!" Mikey laughed.

"It's not funny Mikey!" Leo said as he jumped off his bed.

"Hahaha… just wait when the guys… hahaha… when the guys know about this! HAHAHAHA" Mikey collapsed on Leo's bed clutching his stomach.

"NO! NO! NO! NO! WAIT MIKEY!" Leo took Mikey by the shoulders.

"Mikey, you have to promise me they won't know about this!"

"Haha… ok, ok!"

"NO, YOU HAVE TO PROMISE! PROMISE ME MIKEY!"

"OK, OK! I PROMISE! I PROMISE" Mikey said as he got up the bed.

"Mikey, look at me and promise me… they won't know about what you saw here, ok?"

"Leo, I promise! I promise bro!"

"*sigh* ok… anyway, what are you doing here?"

"Oh! I forgot! Some gangs doing robbery. Raph and Don are in place already"

"But… what happened to the alarm? I didn't hear it"

"Because you were tired, dude! You trained more than us today so… I told the guys I was going to wake you up and then… hehe…hahaha…HAHAHAHA! AND THEN… HAHAHAHA… CAN'T… STOP… LAUGHING… HAHAHA!"

"Mikey!"

"OK… hehe… ok… we better go now… haha… teddy bear… haha"

"Mikey!"

"Ok, ok! Chill out!"

The young ninjas ran through the sewers. Mikey couldn't stop remembering what he saw minutes ago…

"Mikey… If you keep giggling like that, the guys are gonna know about… you know…"

"Hehe… sorry Leo, but… hehe… I just can't forget it!"

"Well… make and effort or I'll make you forget!"

"Woow" Easy there! You almost sound like Raph!"

"Sorry… it's just… well…"

"I know, but… if they know about this, so what!"

"So what? Mikey, I'm the leader here! Remember?"

"Yeah, so?"

"I think you're not getting the idea" Leo sighed totally annoyed.

"Hey! Maybe I'm not Don but I know exactly what you're talking about dude! I mean, it's your life, not of them. What's the sin on that? It's just you and your teddy bear… I have to admit, though… I'm surprised you still have it and it looks almost new… so what if you sleep with your teddy bear! IT'S JUST A TEDDY BEAR!"

Leo looked at Mikey in surprise… his little brother had said something clever? Well… kinda…

"Eh… what did you eat today Mikey?"

"Hey! I'm supporting you bro!"

"Thanks bro, but… they must not know for now, ok?"

"Ok…" Mikey smirked.

Meanwhile… Raph sliced a baseball bat with his sais and Don dodged kicks…

"Where… the shell… are Fearless… and Mikey?" Raph asked between kicks.

"Don't know… maybe… the Foot… or more of this… guys…" Don said as he hit some gangs with his bo.

Raph paused, listening for movement. The whisper of a footstep on his left. He turned, lashed out blindly, felt his fist connect with muscled flesh, and heard a soft "Oomph."

"And that's how I kick butts, hehe…"

"Hey show-off! Watch your back!" Mikey yelled suddenly, followed by Leo.

Another gang threw a punch… Don dodged it and waved his bo, sending the gang directly to ground. With no more butts to kick… the guys left the scene… the last part of the job was on the police-hands.

"Aw! Leo, we missed the action!" Mikey complained like a child.

"Yeah… what happened to you guys?" Don asked in concern.

"Eh… traffic?" Mikey smiled nervously.

"Maybe The Sleeping Beauty can explain us what happened" Raph teased Leo.

"Hey! Cut it out Raph!"

"No, Mikey, it's ok. *sigh* yes, it was my fault… maybe I was tired, just that… nothing more… now, can we go home?" Leo said and left the place, leaving his brothers behind.

"Now… what was that?" Don looked at his brothers in surprise.

"OK… something really stinks here!"

"Hey, even Leo gets tired sometimes and needs to recover his strength and you know, needs sleep… bed, pillows, ted…eh… eh… I mean… eh…"

Mikey choked on his words. The image of Leo and his teddy bear was still on his mind.

"Woow, woow, woow… Hold it right there Mikey… what did ya said?" Raph got closer to Mikey, looking firmly at his eyes.

"Eh… what are you talking about Raph?" Mikey sweated cold. He was the lies' master but, when someone looked at him like that… well… ¬¬

"What did ya mean with 'ted'?"

"Eh… 'ted'?... Pff… bro, I didn't say 'ted', I said… eh… bed! Yeah, I said bed!" Mikey said with an unconvincing voice.

"Mikey?... Spit it out! What's going on with Fearless…?"

"Nothing! Leo's fine… and I think we should go home… eh… now!" Mikey ran as fast as he could.

"Grrr! I know he's hiding something …"

"I don't know Raph. But… did you look at his face when he said all that stuff? Mmm… and what if… no, no… I don't think that's possible"

"What?"

"Nothing… just random hypothesis"

"Nah, maybe it was one of Mikey's pranks again…*yawn* Well *yawn* I'm dead tired… c'mon, let's follow the others"

"…'bed'…'ted'… Mmm… I wonder if… no it can't be… can be?" Don asked to himself as he made his way to the next tunnel.

That night, no one could sleep. Leo, well… he had his reasons (pretty obvious ¬¬)

"So, Fearless has a secret… mmm, hehe… Oh! I can't wait 'til tomorrow" Raph said rubbing his hands.

Mikey rolled over his bed. He promised Leo nobody would know about his 'secret' but he knew Raph was suspecting of him…

"Oh shell! What if Raph guesses? What if Donnie had already guessed? Oh man! I promised to Leo! *sigh* what a brother I am, huh?" he said covering his face with a pillow.

Leo stayed awake all night, sat on his bed, trying not to fall asleep. Mikey had already discovered him and that was humiliating enough.

"*sigh* all these nights… and he had to discover it tonight! Great, just great…" Leo sighed in annoyance.

The blue masked ninja started to pace on his room… he had to stay awake no matter what… he could hear his brother's breathing, the sewer's leaks… Donatello's computers still humming… the lair was particularly quiet that night.

Leo sat on his bed and looked at his little bed partner; a little, smiling brown teddy bear. He took it and hugged him.

"Don't worry lil' friend, Mikey won't tell the guys about you… and I know he won't, he's a good brother" Leo said to his lil' teddy bear.

"It's not that I'm ashamed of you but… you know… the guys are… well… you know how the guys are already. But, if Raph knows about you, he'll probably chase me like… forever!"

He looked at his lil' friend and started to remember the old gold days when he was kid, when sleeping with his teddy bear wasn't 'immature', when it was right because he was a kid!

"I miss the old days, lil' fella… *yawn*… maybe Mikey's right… so what if *yawn*… I s…slee…p… with… y…ou…" Leo was finding hard to stay awake.

"*yawn*… ok… m…maybe… a l…ittle… *yawn*… nap… and… *long yawn*… nah! Whatever…!" Leo covered with his blanket, still hugging his teddy bear.

"Good night lil' friend" with this, he felt asleep immediately.
