Mike woke up to his alarm clock at 7 am, he groaned and turned over to his side while tapping the button to his alarm clock. He yawned before resting his head back onto the pillow.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen downstairs, Raphael was busy cooking some breakfast. "Raphie, it's your turn to wake the kid." He chuckled as he flipped a pancake in the frying pan.
Raphie sighed, getting up, "wish me luck that I make it back alive." He chuckled.
Raphael laughed, placing the pancake on a plate, while pouring another pancake batter into the frying pan, "good luck brother."
Raphie smiled as he made his way up to Mike's bedroom, he knocked on the door. "Mike? You awake?" Raphie opened the door slowly, poking his head inside, he sighed smiling. Raphie walked over to the bed and placed his hand on Mike's shoulder, shaking it a bit. "Mike, it's time to wake up, your daddy's making pancakes for breakfast."
Mike moaned and pulled the covers over his head, " 'm sleepin' go 'way."
Raphie rolled his eyes, "daddy's making pancakes for breakfast~"
Mike groaned, "go eat 'em then. 'm sleepin'. "
Raphie gave an annoyed look, he took hold of the cover and pulled it off the bed in one swift motion, "Mike, it's time to get up. Come on kid, you got school today, don't want to be late do you?"
"Don't feel good, so gonna stay in bed and sleep." Mike, curled up as best he could into a ball, to keep the heat that as sadly taken with the bed cover being on the floor.
Raphie sighed in annoyance, "you're not sick, and you're not going to stay in bed all day. You are going to get up, come downstairs, have breakfast and then go to school. Now hop hop!"
Mike groaned, "no!"
Raphie grinned, "have it your way..." he said before grabbing Mike and hauled him over his shouder, and carried the kicking and punching turtle to the kitchen, dropping Mike into his seat.
"Well well well, kid's finally made it ta breakfast." Raph chuckled. "Did ya give Uncle Raphie trouble again? It's funny that ya never give me that sort o' trouble eh kid?"
Mike huffed and stuck his tongue out at Raph. Raph quickly took hold of Mike's tongue, giving a strict look, "what's your daddy told ya about sticking your tongue out ta people?" He asked giving a slight pinch to the tongue.
"Ow! Ge, golb be mod do gik bie gonge ouk go beoble." Mike tried to say.
Raph raised a brow at him, "and why did he say not ta do it?"
Raph smirked as he let go of Mike's tongue, "try ta remember that next time ya want ta stick your tongue out. I might just have some scissors on me ta cut it off, ta teach ya a lesson, ya want that kid?"
Mike shook his head, "no, no, no! I wanna keep my tongue Uncle Raph!"
Raph smirked as he leaned over and gently tapped Mike's cheek, "good boy, keep that in mind eh?"
Raphael walked over to the table and placed the plates of pancakes down, "there you go boys, eat up." He sat down and began to dig in with the others, Raph gave a gentle nudge to Raphael's shoulder and gave a nod towards Mike. Raphael sighed silently. "Mike? After you come home from school today....There's someone I'd like you to meet."
Mike looked up, tilting his head slightly, "like a friend of yours or something?"
Raphael smiled a little, "yes a 'friend', so once you get home from school I'll introduce you and i would like you to be on your best behaviour for me alright."
Mike smiled, "okay, I can do that." he said, finishing his pancakes.
Raph smirked, "okay kid, if you're ready, it's my turn ta take ya to school today, so grab your bag and let's get going." He said as he got up and walked to the front door, waiting.
Mike rolled his eyes playfully, getting up and grabbed his back pack, placed it on his back and left with Raph.
Raph smirked at Mike as they walked down the street, "so kid, what ya think of your daddy bringing home a friend for ya ta meet?"
Mike looked at him and shrugged, "I don't know, same as every other guys I've met with him, I guess."
Raph chuckled, "well this one's different, it ain't a guy kid." He smirked.
"It's a girl? Why would daddy want me to meet a girl?....It's not for me is it?" Mike asked, looking half shocked and half in horror.
Raph laughed shaking his head, "nah, it's not a girl for ya, it's a girl he wants ya ta meet, that's his friend, ya daddy has a lady friend that he wants ya ta meet is all."
Mike raised a brow, "uhh...okay." He looked at the building up ahead, "well thanks for walking me to school Uncle Raph, see you guys when I get home." He said as he ran towards the building, Mike walked through the doors and straight to his class room, taking his seat and looked at the black board. "Augh great, mythical creatures. What a load of crock. What kind of idiot teacher chooses that type of subject for us to learn?"
A female vixen, leaned over her desk towards Mike. "Didn't you hear? Where having a new teacher today."
Mike looked at her, "why? What's wrong with the old teacher we had, there was nothing wrong with that guy."
She chuckled, "he retired, he was seventy you know, I heard he wanted a quiet life for his retirment than to keep on teaching us." She giggled.
Mike laughed, "I guess we're too much for the guy huh?"
She was about to reply when the classroom door opened, Mike watched him as he approached his desk and looked around, giving a smile. "Good morning class, my name is Hamato Leonardo. I will be teaching this class for the rest of this semester and the next." He smiled, "I will call out your names, when I do, I would like you to raise your hand so I will come to know each and every one of you."
As the names were called, Mike focused on why Raphael wanted to bring a 'lady friend' home for him to meet. "Mike?" He quickly broke out of his thoughts and raised his hand. Leo raised a brow at him and called him over to his desk, he looked up at Leo. "Is there a problem with your hearing?" Leo asked gently.
Mike shook his head, "no, nothing wrong with my ears. Why d'you ask?"
Leo smiled a little, "I called your name three times, before you raised your hand."
Mike swallowed a little, "s-sorry, I was..deep in thought."
Leo smiled, "alright, try not to get too deep in thought during class, I will be asking questions to what I went over." He smiled, "you may return to your desk." Mike smiled a little and returned to his seat. Leo smiled at the class, "as you can see, the subject for today's lesson is Mythical Creatures. Can anyone here tell me something about them?" Mike raised his hand, "yes Mike?"
"They're made up stories."
The classroom filled with laughter, Leo chuckled a little. "Alright, everyone settle down." He looked at Mike with a smile, "are you certain they are all stories?"
Mike shrugged, "well they must be, I mean you think we would go out at night if there really were live werewolves and vampires and mummies around?"
Leo smiled, "yes that is a good point. But do each of you believe that they are only stories?" He looked around to a classroom full of nodding heads. "I see, so you believe that even the boogey man is only a story?" Leo chuckled to the tilted heads and confused looks of his students, Mike raised his hand. "Yes Mike?"
"Don't you believe they're just stories? Isn't that why they make movies with them in it, just made up stories for people to read or watch?"
Leo smiled, "I believe they once excisted, many years ago. For some people, yes they make up stories, some interesting ones of the dreaded vampire and the heroic slayer, or a ancient Pharoh's curse, as he is brought back, wrapped in tattered bandages to drain the souls of the living in order to live again. " Leo smiled, "most of the stories and movies are slightly if not highly exhagerrated to some point, in order to keep the reader, or the watcher interested. Mostly throughout the books and movies, a few facts have been left out and replaced by fiction."
Mike raised a brow, "what about dragons then? Any facts or proof on them? Since they're mythical and stuff."
Leo smirked, "yes, those are also mythical creatures, some believe they date back to the days of the vikings, it has been known that the dragon species was wiped out during that time and was never to be seen again." He smiled, "as for proof, I recently discovered a fossilised dragon's scale, but that I will leave for tomorrow's class, today we will discuss about the beliefs and facts of 'The Boogey Man'." Leo said as he leaned back against his desk. "Now what I would like everyone to do is to bring their chairs, and place them in a semi circle around my desk and we will discuss on what each of you believe the boogey man to look like, I would like to hear your opinions about this mythical creature." He smiled as he sat on his desk as the others placed their chair around his desk.
