Everyone thought he had a problem, but everyone failed to see that Leonardo had one too. Everyone except Raphael. He'd noticed it and he'd been brave enough to poke it, luring it into the light. Leo was as stubborn as he was, though, so it was still in progress. Everyone thought the leader was so perfect, but that was the problem. He's too perfect. He had no room for fun in his busy schedule; no room for the enjoyment of life. What other's took for dedication, Raph took for a knot in his straight rope.
I dont care, no I wouldn't dare
To fix the twist in you
You've shown me eventually what you'll do
What the eldest had done wasn't so violent as the hothead's, but it was just as effective. He left. Vanished from the household; off to Central America because of 'training.' Though no physical scars were there, emotional scars raked everyone from that wound, especially Raph.
I dont mind
I dont care
As long as you're here
Raph wished Leo were there, with him in the lusciously green park. Sure, he was the one who had run out, but he wanted the blue clad turtle to chase after him; something he never did. So, after bashing some heads, his usual schedule was crowded with thinking. Thinking of the fight that had just endured, of everything that had happened and just anything that came to mind. His thinking sessions normally led to the idea that it was all his fault in which he would run back, begging for forgiveness.
Go ahead and tell me you'll leave again
You'll just come back running
Holding your scarred heart in hand
It's all the same
Raph looked at the sky. He'd been gone a while. With his thoughts swirling, time had come and gone like a scurrying mouse. Sighing, he allowed his mind to drift again and this time it chose the most recent fight. It was the worst one yet; both threatening to leave. The argument had actually scared Raphael a little bit. When he'd stormed out, he'd been shaking slightly and not from rage. He feared that Leo would actually leave. That he'd really fly all the way back to Central America and leave him here...all alone.
Hours slide and days go by
But in-between it always seems too long
Making a decision, Raph stood from the roots in which he sat on. Hopping down a manhole and dashing through the sewer, the hothead paused in front of the door. Could he go back in there? Would Leo even care that he was back? "He's probably all happy, thinking I left for good," he mumbled. He wouldn't think that, would he? Was he even still there? Swallowing his doubts and stilling his thoughts, he opened the door with a creak. A body slammed into his, encircling its arms around his body. A hand grabbed protectively at his neck. Arms wrapping around Leo's waist, the hothead pulled him closer.
But I have the skill, yeah
I have the will, to breath you in while I can
However long you stay is all that I am
"Don't," the red clad turtle cut him off. "Don't mention it; don't talk about it."
"I'm sorry," the eldest continued.
Sighing, Raph nodded. "Me too."
"I didn't mean anything I said and-" Pressing a finger to Leo's lips, Raphael stopped the flow of words.
"What did I say?" He asked softly. "Now, will you please shut up so I can kiss you?" The leader smiled which Raph took as permission to dive in. Pressing his lips to Leo's, Raph decided he wasn't going to go anywhere and he was going to make sure Leo didn't either.
