Summary : This is the first in a collection of drabbles co-written with Onlymehere. Enjoy!
I patrol at least five times a week with my brothers. We leap across rooftops and take out bad guys as and when we find them. I am easily distracted, and when left alone, can find myself straying from the True Path.
Sensai once told us that the True Path is one of Spiritual Enlightenment. Our bodies are vessels that possess insight into a higher state of being. Our needs are miniscule compared to the power of our souls.
I try to stay on the True Path but, to be honest, sometimes I drift onto a path all my own.
One night, I found myself drifting right off the Path and onto some unknown highway leading to something completely new.
We had been patrolling separately when I heard soft moans coming from an apartment nearby. Encouraged by the thought of some bad guy beat-down, I tracked the source and watched open-mouthed through the window as two sweaty human bodies united beneath satin bed sheets.
It was the first time I'd ever caught anyone in 'the act' and I was relatively young and naive. At first, I thought they were playing some crude wrestling game.
But then the sheets slid off and I got a full-on view.
I felt an unknown warmth coming from down below and shuddered with dull shame. It was earthy and wild and spontaneous.
Turns out, sex is just like me.
I watched, unaware of my brother standing to my left.
Raphael shook his head and laughed out loud. "Enjoying da view, Mikey?"
I practically fell off the ledge I was perched on. "Raph! What the shell!"
"Don't worry. I'll keep yer dirty secret." Raph smirked. He was having too much fun with this. I racked my brain for a good come-back, but all I could see was naked people dancing in my brain.
"Yeah, well, I don't do this normally. You know? I just - gulp - found them this way." It wasn't the wittiest reply, but my brain was otherwise engaged. I'm sure my beak was deepening in colour, and Raph had a cat-that-ate-the-cream look about him.
I flipped off the ledge and moved over to my chuckling brother. A heavy warmth lay on my belly and I tried to forget the passion I'd seen. It was too distracting.
"Come on bro, let's go patrol." Raph sighed, grabbing my shoulder. "Before ya pop a blood vessel."
He is going to get it later. I'm already thinking about my prank revenge and, thankfully, the image seared into my brain of two naked people is finally fading. Gulp. A little.
