He grips his sais hard as he follows his little brother, keeping to the shadows as they go. Mikey’s up to something, and whatever it is, to be out on the New York City streets this late at night and by himself, couldn’t be a good thing. Any of the others would have woken the rest or perhaps tried to stop him from going altogether, but Raphael just silently follows his brothers and keeps his sais constantly at the ready.
A slightly older boy steps out of the shadows. Raphael opens his mouth and pulls back his arm, but before he can let his sai go, Mikey takes the box the boy’s offering and passes him some cash. Raph barely has time to wonder where Mikey got the cash from before the younger turtle turns to him. “Hey, Raph,” he calls, grinning and holding up the box. “Want some pizza?”
Raphael stares at him before finally managing, “You came way out here . . . this late at night . . . for pizza?!”
“‘Course!” Mikey grins and takes a huge bite out of a heavy slice practically oozing meat and cheese. “I do everything for pizza! Doesn’t everybody?”
Raphael groans but reaches for a slice.
