Sooo sorry for not updating!
Life has been busy and to be honest I kinda lost myself on this story = (
I hope you forgive me!
I walked up the stairs and down the hallway to my room.
I opened the door to find Mikey holding something.
"Hey Leo, what's this?" He asked me waving it around.
I narrowed my eyes to get a better view.
"Raph's diary!" I thought as my eyes widened.
"Uh it's nothing, just a notebook" I told him casually.
"You sure Leo, it doesn't look like a notebook" He said as his eyebrows raised.
"Yes Mikey, I uhhhh...write training stuff down so I can remember it easier" I smiled as I came up with that.
"Oh, well then I'm sure you wont mind if I just peak inside"
"NO!" I lunged forward and grabbed it from him.
He looked at me werid then a slow smile came on.
"Uh huh, a notebook..." he said grinning.
"Yes Mikey, it's just a plain old boring notebook that has training stuff inside, and if you don't leave I'll make you train right now!" I told him.
"I uh have to go ummm downstairs" he almost ran out of my bedroom.
I sighed and then looked at the diary to make sure it wasn't damaged.
"I wonder what other secrets you hold" I asked the book then sat down on my bed.
I moved my pillow over so it was more comfortable.
I opened the book and flipped the pages until I came to the part I left off.
Chapter 7 of Raph's diary...
"Well it's been a year today since Leo left and nobody wants ta talk about it.
He could be dead and nobody would know, not that he cares or anything.
I don't know, sometimes I wish he'd never come back.
But I'd be lyin, to be honest.
I miss him...
And right now I'd give anything just to see him again!.
Heck I'd give up my sai, I'd give up my punching bag."
I stared shocked at the diary "Did I just read that! he'd give up the things he holds cloest to his heart just for me!".
I couldn't believe it, I had to read more.
Chapter 8 of Raph's diary...
"Leo's home! I can't believe he's home!.
But he doesn't seem himself...
He seems older somehow.
Where's the brother I knew!.
What happened to him?.
I wanted my brother back! not this person!.
Well I ain't talkin ta him!.
If it ain't the Leo that left, then it ain't Leo!.
Nobody else seems ta notice.
I just wanted my brother back!.
I'm done writin in is stupid thing, I never should've writen this in tha first place!.
So whatever, I"M DONE!.
"Wow does he really think that I'm not the same person as when I left?." I asked myself feeling guilty.
"Wait there's a little more on the back of the last page" I told myself as I read.
The last bit..
"To be honest I didn't mean what I said, ya know that I wouldn't talk ta him again.
I guess I'm just...afraid that he doesn't love me anymore.".
"That's not true and I'm gonna tell him that to!" I grabbed the book and walked out my bedroom door.
I made my way past Mikey's room until I came to Raph's door.
I heard Raph call.
"Can I come in?" I called back.
There was a silence then "Ya, come in".
I opened the door and walked inside.
His room was a mess, there was weights and stuff all across the floor.
Raph was sitting on his bed reading a magazine, he glanced up at me.
"Hey Leo, what do ya want-" his eyes trailed down to my hand where I held the diary.
He stared wide eyed at me before recovering.
"What's that?" he pointed to the diary.
"Umm I found it in your room and I uh..I read it. Raph I didn't know you felt like that?" I slowly made my way over to him and sat down on his bed.
He was to shocked to do anything so he just listened.
"I'm sorry, I didn't know you felt as though I didn't care about you" I looked at him.
"Uh yeah, you weren't supposed ta read that!" he grabbed it from me and then looked away.
"Raph, I'm sorry!" he looked up at me again.
"I do love you, I would never hate you. You're my brother!" he smiled at that last part.
I slowly reached over and hugged him.
At first he didn't know what to do, but then he hugged me back.
"I'm so sorry Raph, can you forgive me?" I stared crying.
"Ya Leo, I forgive ya. But if ya ever leave again...you wouldn't want ta come back home" he told me.
I stopped crying and smiled at him.
"I love ya bro" he said smiling a real smile for the first time in a while.
"I love you too Raph!".
So this didn't really turn out the way I wanted it to...but I guess it's alright.
What do you think?.
