All was silent for a moment as the two brothers just stared at the two turtles within the room. One was dressed in a deep maroon suit with a white dress shirt, black tie, and black dress shoes. The other was dressed in a black suit with an orange dress shirt, white tie, and black shoes.
Not only did they notice their attire, they also noticed their skin tones and other features as well. The larger one had a dark green skin tone, yellow eyes, and Donatello could tell that he worked out as well. Due to the size of his muscles and he was incredibly handsome! Never before had he been so mesmerized by someone before in his life!
Leonardo was thinking the same thing, if he were thinking at all. All he could do was stare at the smaller turtle. He had sea-green skin, bright blue eyes that he knew he could get lost in for days, cute little freckles, and he was absolutely adorable!
Both turtles were so lost in their staring of the beautiful creatures that they didn't notice when one began to speak up, obviously feeling uncomfortable from the way the two turtles were looking at them.
"I'm sorry, what was that?" Leonardo asked, as he stared directly at the smaller turtle. If hearts were able to form in his eyes, that's what would be happening right now. He wanted to know this turtle more, and right <i>now</i>.
"Could ya stop starin' an' actually introduce yerselves? 's a bit uncomfortable."
"Yeah... is there like... something on our faces?"
If Donatello was feeling flutters before, nothing could compare to how they were now the minute he heard that Brooklyn accent roll off of the older turtle's tongue. If Donnie could melt into a puddle of goo, that is what he would be doing right now.
"I-I'm sorry, my name is Donatello a-and this is my o-older brother L-Leonardo." Donnie sputtered, feeling slightly nervous. He had never seen someone so handsome in his entire life, nor felt the urge to want to invade someone's personal space so intimately! <i> Bad thoughts Donnie, bad!</i>.
Raphael raised an eyebrow at the smaller turtle's antics. <i> Dis one seems ta be a little er... speech impaired maybe? I dunno... seems kind shy though...</i> "'m Raphael, an dis 'ere 's ma brodda Michelangelo."
Leonardo was trying his best not to churr as he finally learned the adorable turtle's name and smiled at him. "Well, Michelangelo, would you care to join me inside of my office for your interview?"
Mikey eyed the older turtle slightly before nodding. "Alright." He then looked at Raphael, smiled, and then winked at him. "Good luck!" Was the last thing he said before following his 'future' boss inside of his own office.
After Mikey was gone, Raphael looked up at the slightly nervous turtle and smirked when he seen that Donatello seemed to be a little lost in space.
"Are ya sure yer alrigh'?"
Donatello quickly nodded, making sure not to say anything until he was more comfortable so he wouldn't make an idiot of himself again.
"Yes, follow me Raphael." Donnie said more calmly this time and offered a smile as the larger male followed him towards his own office.
Once they were inside, Don motioned to his large mahogany desk and told Raphael to have a seat in one of the blue suede chairs in front of his desk.
"So..." the genius started, shutting the door as he went to join his 'future' employee by sitting in the leather chair in front of him. "You took classes in both mechanics, advertisement, and business, correct?"
Raphael nodded and sat up a bit straighter, wanting to make a good impression so that way he would get the job.
"Yeah, went ta school wit Mikey an' stuff. Got ma bachelor's degree an' what not. Took a few minor technology courses as well too. Don' really 'ave any job experience really."
Raph admitted, though a part of him knew that he should not have said that. But it was out in the open now. Donatello could take it anyway that he wanted too.
"Oh? T-That's nice." Donnie sputtered once more, trying his hardest not to stare into those deep yellow eyes that he knew were transfixed on him.
<i> Why did he have to be so hot? I don't know if I can make it through this interview without melting into a puddle! I need to get a hold of myself, although, it's not like I was not going to hire him anyway... most definitely will need an assistant now... Father is indeed a genius!</i>
Donatello took in a deep breath to collect himself and he looked over his resume once more and smiled when he seen that the man was true to his word. He really didn't have any job experience, didn't mean that that would stop Raphael from getting the job. Oh no, he wanted to hire him right then and there, but he didn't want to seem creepy.
"So, tell me a bit about yourself and then we c-can see w-what to do from t-there."
Raphael could not help but to smirk at the look on Donatello's face. He was definitely cute and shy, but he certainly did seem to be a little speech impaired. But that was alright, Raph could handle it. No matter how slightly weird he was.
And soon the two began to discuss what he liked, what he disliked, what he did at high school, his love for automobiles, and other little things.
<i>Father was indeed a genius!</i>
"So uh, when did ya want me ta come back in by?"
Donnie blinked at that. "What? Erm... I mean..." He began to sputter once more, cursing himself for being so shy.
"A-Actually, I think you w-would be perfect for the job. Y-You are um... hired..."
Leonardo smiled as he escorted the smaller turtle inside of his office. Almost every fiber of his being was telling him to wrap the smaller turtle in his arms and keep him for himself. But, he knew better.
Michelangelo's eyes were wide as he seen the way the office was decorated. It had bamboo wallpaper, with Japanese Kanji written all over the walls, as well as some Japanese wall-art as well. Leonardo's desk seemed to be made out of bamboo as well and the rest of the room seemed to have
a touch of Japanese everywhere he looked!
"Your office is pretty neat." Mikey complemented, hoping to get onto Leo's good side.
Leo smiled in return at this. "Thank you Michelangelo." He then looked over his resume and grinned when he seen that he had no private life with anyone else. Mikey seemed to be someone who looked for a good time, who longed to be with someone for a long time, and he seemed to be a very bright and bubbly type of person.
Leonardo was starting to approve of him even more as he continued to read his file.
"You went to school, graduated with bachelors, took classes in advertising, video games, and business. Seems pretty good to me."
His tawny-brown eyes shone with admiration when Michelangelo then added on that he was really good at organizing, though it took him awhile.
"That's alright, I am sure that it could be overlooked."
Mikey blushed slightly at the charming smile that covered Leonardo's face. He was indeed handsome, that he was most definitely aware of. Not only that, Leo seemed to be quite charming as well. He also seemed pretty cool and young for a boss.
He was brought out of his thoughts and grinned when his 'future' boss asked him about himself. "Well, I like cookies, snowboarding, skateboarding, hanging out with friends, Raphael is my best bud I also like -"
Leonardo could only stare as the smaller turtle continued to ramble. He was only half listening. He was too mesmerized by each little feature on his face. He loved the way his cute little freckles would form into a dimple when he smiled. The way his blue eyes would twinkle when he was excited about something. And, he just loved the way he looked period.
Leo then began to frown slightly. Was this really the first time that he had ever fallen for someone before? Was he really that alone? Did Donnie feel the same?
"Hey Leo! Leo - Leo!"
"Hm?" Leonardo asked, being woken out of his trance by the angel's voice. "Yes, Mikey?" He added in with a slight purr, enjoying the blush that colored the other's cheeks.
<i> I am going to have fun with this.</i>
"Um... I was wondering when you wanted for me to come back in, you know, to see how
Leonardo only offered a charming smile and a chuckle at that.
"What do you mean, 'come back', I think you are perfect for the job. You're hired."
