Leo decided to go clockwise as he gestured to the female wolf, "what do you believe the boogey man to look like?"
"Um...Big and hairy, like a guy who hasn't shaved or cut his hair for years, with rotten teeth and manky nails, and has six toes with long manky toe nails all yellow and gross." She said making a grossed out face. Leo chuckled, giving a nod and gestured to the male toad who sat next to her.
"Old, ugly and stinks like rotten fish. Two horns sticking out on the top of his head with lumpy ears and big metal hoops for earings. Dirty and smelly clothes with worn out old fashioned boots." he said. Leo smiled giving a nod and gestured to a male fox.
"Umm..Probably fat with a big nose with a bull ring through it and small pointy ears. Torn clothes with mud smudges and a big mop of hair that covers his eyes, all matted with twigs and leaves and dirt, with a bad wet dog smell." He said. Leo chuckled softly and gestured to a female vixen.
"I guess he's be really tall and big, with missing teeth and small beady eyes, with a big nose that's red at the tip, big fish lips and stinks like a skunk." She said. Leo laughed a little and gentured to a female cat.
"Umm...I think he would look like a type of troll, with frizzy red hair and big ears with hair sticking out of them like two tuffs of grass." She said. Leo chuckled, giving a nod and gestured to a male dog.
"Probably a skinny old, grey skinned guy with a long white beard and long white hair all tangled with a few bird nests tangled in there, two or three teeth, with a punched up nose and long yellow finger and toe nails." He said. Leo chuckled and gestured to Mike.
Mike thought for a moment, "I think she would have.....Large, dark and bulbous eyes, that can cope with low lights where she would hide under the beds and bedroom cupboards. A wide and fat nose, that's good for sniffing out her victims. Her skin would be covered in warts and boils. Her fingernails are long and terrifyingly sharp, that she can use as weapons that would rip through bedclothes to reach her victims that hide under the bed cover, her teeth long and sharp like a tiger's fangs and is a bit taller than a person, with rags as clothes."
Leo looked at him with a slightly interested smile, while the rest of his class mates stared at him with wide eyes. "That was rather interesting, you have quite the imagination. Though it questions me to why you said 'she'."
Mike shrugged, "a boogey man doesn't always hafta be a man, it can be a girl too."
Leo smiled, "yes, that's quite true, it can be a female or a male."
"Yeah right, he only said for it to be a girl, 'cause he doesn't 'like' girls!" The male toad said in a rude and disgust manner. "He's weird to think the way he does with his 'imagination'."
Leo looked at him sternly. "It does not matter whether a person likes or dislikes a certain gender, there is nothing wrong with it. A person is free to like whoever he or she chooses." Leo glared at his pupil sternly, "any type of imagination is a wonderful and special gift each and every person has, there is nothing wrong or weird to what type of imagination you like or enjoy to create. Now I believe you have something you would like to say to Mike?"
He looked at Mike, "...Sorry..."
Mike smiled a little, "it's ok-"
"Sorry you're such a weirdo, you freak!"
Mike jumped from his chair and launched himself at the male toad, knocking them both over as they began punching and kicking at each other. Leo quickly walked over to them, he grabbed Mike by the top part of his shell and gripped the male toad by the back of his t-shirt, lifting them both up and away from each other, giving them a hard shake. "THAT IS ENOUGH!" Leo looked over his shoulder at the rest of his pupils who's eyes were sure to pop out of their heads. "Class dissmissed," he looked back at the two in his grasp, "but not for you two."
Leo led them over to his desk while the others had quickly 'whooped' and ran out of the classroom door with their bags, he looked at the two of them, both had landed punches to each others faces, both with a cut lip and slight bleeding nose. Leo glared sternly at them, "I would like to make one thing quite clear. I do not tolerate violence, name calling of any kind in my classroom." Leo sighed quietly, "tell me, what did it accomplish?"
Mike tilted his head, "what did what now?"
"What did violence solve between you two?" Leo replied, crossing his arms as the two of them shrugged. "It solved nothing, do you two honestly believe that punching and kicking each other was the best thing to do?"
"I didn't start the fight, he did!"
Mike glared at him, "you're the one who called me a weirdo and freak!"
Both boys looked at Leo quickly, clamping their mouths shut. "Both of you are at fault." Leo looked at the toad, "you may not have started the 'physical fight', but you began a fight with your words....." he trailed off trying to remember the name.
"Marcus, or Mark for short, like he likes to be called." Mike said.
Mark looked at Mike in slight shock, "you know I like to be called that?"
Mike gave a nod, "sure, you like to do some stuff I do, like skipping stones to try to hit boats in the river, talk to the trees about some stuff that you don't want to tell you dad yet. Go to the pet store and just spend some time in the back with the owners dogs, pet and play with them."
Mark looked at him wide eyed, "I..I thought I was the only one who did those things...." He looked down a moment before looking back at Mike, "I'm sorry I called you a weirdo and a freak."
"It's okay. I'm sorry I punched you and kicked you." Mike held out his hand in a fist, "we good?"
Mark smiled, and fist bumped Mike's, "yeah we good."
Leo smiled, "do you two believe that talking is more effective than violence?"
The two of them looked at him and gave a nod, "y-you're not going to call our dads are you about this?" Mike asked, looking as worried as Mark.
Leo smiled, "this once I'll let it slide, I suggest you both go get cleaned up before you boys head home, to save any questions from your fathers."
They smiled, giving a nod as they grabbed their bags, both of them, cleaning up their noses and lips before heading home. Mike walked through his front door, to surprised looks from both Raph and Raphie. "What ya doing home?" Raph asked.
"Class finished early today, we had a new teacher and we had to give our ideas of what a boogey man looked like to us." Mike rolled his eyes, "it was for a mythical creatures subject, I think I gave the best idea for that it would look like since everyone else just stared at me with wide eyes." He chuckled, hanging his bag up, "where's daddy?"
Raphie smiled, "you most likely did, we of all people know how big of a imagination you have," he chuckled. "your daddy's out, he's bringing his lady friend back to meet you, so I guess he went to go get her, oh and he's probably going to invite her to have dinner with us, soooo you want to help me cook the meal?"
Mike smiled, "yeah I have a big imagination." He rolled his eyes, "ohh yeah, his 'lady friend', she's probably some middle aged worker at a library or something. But sure I'd like to help you make the dinner Uncle Raphie, what we making?"
"Pizza, what else?" Raphie laughed, getting up. "So you go make the base, and I'll chop the pepperoni and whatever else we decide to put on it."
Mike smiled widely as he rushed to the kitchen, getting out the ingredients to make the pizza base. Raph chuckled, going back to his news paper.
Raphael opened the door and stepped aside, "after you," he said smiling.
"Why thank you," she giggled, walking in.
Raphael escorted her into the dinning room, just as Mike placed the pizza on the table, "oh hey daddy, me and Unc-" Mike looked up at them, looking at the desert fox, then at Raphael, "who's that?"
Raphael smiled at Mike, "Mike, this is Nei. My 'friend' I wanted to introduce you to."
Nei smiled, "hello Mike, it's nice to meet you, your daddy's told me so much about you."
Mike raised his brow at her, "that's funny, daddy hasn't told me anything about you, and we talk all the time." He said with a smirk, before going back to the kitchen.
Raphael mentally growled in his mind, he looked at Nei, "don't mind Mike, he might have had a bad day at school, he tends to be a bit moody when that happens."
"I see, perhaps I should come back another time."
"Oh no, no. There's no need for that, he'll perk right up after he's eaten pizza." Raphael smiled as he pulled a chair out for her and gently pushed it in as she sat down.
Mike, Raph and Raphie came in, Mike sat next to Raphael, as Raph placed the glasses down, with Raphie pouring the orange juice. They all began to eat the pizza, Nei smiled at Mike, "so Mike, you're daddy told me you like music, I like music too. I have a cd of some nice soothing music to help you feel better if you're having a bad day. I can borrow it to you if you like."
Mike smirked, "thanks, but I don't listen to 'boring old people' music."
Raphael gave a look to Mike, he looked at Nei in surprise as she burst out laughing. "Oh my god! That was a good one."
Mike raised his brow at her and frowned, he smirked as he reached to grab his juice. Mike purpously knocked his glass over, causing it to knock over Nei's glass, spilling both his juice and Nei's over her, soaking her top. Nei cried out in surprise at the 'assault'.
"Sorry, it was an accident." Mike said with a hidden smirk.
Raphael caught sight of Mike's hidden smirk as he leaned down, giving a hard and strict glare, as he spoke with a low and incredibly stern tone. "you march yourself straight to your room young man, and you remain there. I will deal with you tonight."
Mike swallowed hard as he stared wide eyed at Raphael, "y-yes daddy..." he whispered, quickly getting up and rushed to his room, closed his door and hid under his covers.
Raphael glared after Mike before turning a soft look towards Nei, "I'm sorry for this...Mike is usually much more well behaved."
Nei smiled as Raph handed her a tissue, "thank you." She looked at Raphael, "it's alright, I'm sure he didn't mean it."
Raphael smiled at her as they spent the rest of the day talking, until he escorted her home, gave his farewell and left back home and straight up to Mike's room, knocked at the door and entered. Raphael sat at the edge of Mike's bed and gently pulled the covers away from Mike's head.
