"So let me get this straight… you're gonna share room with me?" Mikey asked for the bazillion time.
"Just till Donnie is done with the modifications in my room" the girl answered.
"It's not that I don't like you. You're a cool dudette, seriously! But… you know… you're a girl… my room is a mess…" Mikey said sheepishly.
"Oh c'mon! If you're worried about the mess, I promise not to say a word about it" Who smiled friendly.
"OK! Now I feel better. Come in!" Mikey opened the door. Yes, he was right. It was a mess… a big mess.
"Whoa…" the girl was speechless.
"Is there a problem?" Mikey asked.
"Eh… no! Not at all" Who gave him a nervous smile.
"Oh! Idea! Why don't we have a slumber party?" Mikey suggested.
"Sounds good" Who agreed.
"Great! Feel free to choose the bed and get comfortable! I'll be back in a sec" Mikey said and ran downstairs.
"Gosh, this room is such a mess!" Who muttered. The floor was filled with comic books, figure actions, some crumbled papers and kibble crumbs.
"Ew, what's that smell?" the girl followed her nose. The smell came from Mikey's desk where there was a…
"So, this was supposed to be a sandwich?" Who poked the "sandwich" with a pen she found near the plate.
"A tuna sandwich to be precise" a gruff voice came from the door's frame.
"Hey Raph" Who greeted.
"You stayin' with the goofball tonight?" Raph asked.
"Yeah… seems like" Who sighed putting the "sandwich" inside the trashcan.
"Well, good luck then" Raph chuckled.
"Tomorrow night is your turn!" the girl reminded him.
"Yeah, yeah. I know. Nite, See ya tomorrow at practice" the red masked turtle moved to his room.
"Well, it's pajama time" the girl said and closed the door in order to get changed. The door bursted open a few seconds later.
"I'm b..." Mikey froze and turned around.
"AHHHHH! MICHELANGELO!" Who screamed and pushed the young turtle outside before locking the door.
"I'MSORRYI'MSORRYI'MSORRY! I swear I didn't see you!" Mikey apologized.
"Next time… knock first!" the girl yelled.
"I'm sorry. Y'know… living in a house full of guys, hehe… kinda normal I don't knock" Mikey rubbed the back of his neck nervously.
"And kinda annoying too" Don commented as he passed by. Mikey decided to ignore his brother's commentary.
"You dressed up already?" Mikey asked.
"Yep, come in" Who announced and opened the door.
"AWWWW! KITTIES!" Mikey said as he noticed the pajama's design.
"Well, this is one of my favorite pajamas" the girl commented.
"Wait, how many pairs of pajamas do you own?" Mikey asked putting the snacks on his bed.
"Four" Who answered helping him.
"Why?" Mikey asked again.
"Well, it's kind of a long story. I didn't really wear pajamas but a friend of mine took me out for a shopping trip and I saw this one. I wasn't so sure to buy it but…" Who said.
"The kitties on it convinced you?" Mikey giggled.
"You got it. Now, the color was another problem. They just had it in melon" Who continued.
"But it suits you!" Mikey said.
"Aww thank you. Well, enough talking about pajamas and let's get started, ok?"
"Yay! Music time!" Mikey cheered and turned on his stereo turning up the volume to the maximum.
"HEY! KEEP IT DOWN, WILL YA?" Raph yelled.
"GET LOST, RAPH!" Who and Mikey yelled back and continued.
Hours later after a "pizza war", a truth or dare game, a little random dance time, horror stories and some comic book reading… Mikey and Who laid in the floor staring at the ceiling.
"Hey Mikey, why do you have all your comics in the floor?" Who asked.
"Sometimes I read them and when I'm done, I get tired to put them back to their places" Mikey said stretching up his arms.
"But they can get ruined" Who added.
"I'm the only one who enters here; it's my room after all" Mikey said.
"Yeah, but what if Raph decides to break in and…"
"Oh, he wouldn't dare" Mikey chuckled.
"How come you're so sure of that?" Who asked raising a brow.
"Let's just say he has more to lose than I do. He wouldn't want something to happen to his "baby" would he?" Mikey smiled.
"His… oh! You mean his bike?"
"Yep… and some other things like his wrestling magazines, the autographs Casey got from Raph's favorite racers… " Mikey listed.
"Ok, I got it. You're so evil!" the girl snickered.
"Thank you. Raph is not the only baddy here… and Don is not the only genius around. You know?" Mikey giggled.
"Ok, now I'm scared" Who cleared her throat.
"Relax! Like I said, you're a cool dudette. You're safe" Mikey smiled at her. From a corner, a small furry figure stirred and jumped on top of Mikey's plastron.
"Aww, look who wants to join us" Who said.
"Hey Klunkers!" Mikey petted the cat's head. Klunk jumped off Mikey and rubbed his head against the girl's hand.
"Aww, he's so cute" Who scratched the cat's head making Klunk purr in contentment.
"I think he likes you"
"All cats like me, Mikey" Who smiled.
"Oh really?" Mikey said in an "I don't believe you" tone.
"Yes, sir. Watch this" Who cleared her throat and started meowing, causing Klunk's ears to twitch. The cat focused on her before jumping at her arms and give her cheek a small lick.
"See?" Who said proudly.
"Whoa… how do you do that?" Mikey asked in awe.
"It's a gift. I do this since I was a kid. Apparently cats understand me"
"Oh… so you're Catwoman now?" Mikey teased.
"Tsk… you lil dumb" Who chuckled.
"Hey Who, you're a doc right?" Mikey said.
"Kinda… working on it" the girl stretched her arms.
"So, have you dissected things other than frogs and…human corpses?" Mikey asked a little grossed out.
"Hmmm… well… pigeons, some frogs, toads, turtles…" Who listed.
"Kidding… or not?" Who mumbled.
"Ok, ok. The only things I haven't dissected are puppies, kitties and turtles. I swear" the girl commented as she climbed the bunk bed ladder.
"Whew! For a moment I thought I was going to sleep with Jack The Ripper's daughter" Mikey giggled as he turned off the lights and slumped in his bed.
"I wouldn't lower my guard if I were you, Michelangelo" the girl mumbled again.
"Wait, what?" Mikey's eyes opened wide.
"Well, I feel sleepy already. Sweet dreams, Mikey. Oh! And thanks again for letting me stay here" Who said and covered herself with a blanket.
"S-sure… no problem" Mikey managed to say, the girl's words were still on his mind. Minutes later, Mikey's insomnia-caused by certain someone-was getting worse. He needed help.
"Uhmmm… Who?" Mikey called.
"Yes?" the girl said with a yawn.
"You were… kidding about… y'know… the lower your guard thingy, right?" Mikey asked.
"Of course…" Who answered.
"Whew, ok" Mikey sighed.
"…not" the girl whispered.
"What?" Mikey jumped off the bed.
"Nothing" Who yawned. Mikey went back to bed but he couldn't sleep yet.
"Who…" Mikey called again.
"Yes?" the girl said in an annoyed tone.
"Can I… can you…" Mikey stuttered.
"You can't sleep, can you?" Who said with a heavy sigh.
"N-no" Mikey admitted.
"Yeah" Mikey buried himself deeper into his blankets. Who went down to Mikey's bed.
"I'm sorry, Mikey. I shouldn't have teased you" Who apologized.
"Want me to tell you a story maybe? Or sleep here?" the girl asked and took a sit beside Mikey.
"Uhmmm…" Mikey thought for a second.
"Don't worry. I'm not gonna dissect you; I was just kidding" Who smiled hoping that could calm the scared turtle.
"Ok… uh… mind if Klunk joins us too?" Mikey asked.
"Nope. Cats are always welcome" Who chuckled.
"Sweet! C'mon Klunk" Mikey called his cat who jumped right on his arms. Turtle, girl and cat got comfortable in the bed.
"Night Mikey, night Klunk"
The girl had just closed her eyes when deafening sounds started coming from her roommate's mouth.
"Oh shell… and I thought Raph's snores were terrible… *sigh*… this is gonna be a long night"
