It had always been just Mikey and Donnie ever since their father left that night. It was also the night their mother just lost herself from all the pain. Leaving Donnie to take care of Mikey, the house and everything. He was working two jobs just to put food on the table. Mikey help out by cooking dinner. That kid was sure a great cook.
Donnie wished his mother would leave the house, she just didn’t do anything anymore. She seem lost in herself. Donnie knew she missed their father. He wanted blame his father for this. But he could blame him at all, even if maybe it was his fault. He just couldn’t bring himself to do so.
Donnie brushes his long brown hair out of his eyes as he leans over picking up a can of carrots and places price tag on it as he places back with the other cans. He was working at small ma and pa type of supermarket. That was in the middle of their very small town.
“Donnie have you ever been to that Superfood?” His bossed asked as he counts the money.
“No sir, I never shop there” Donnie tells him as he picks up another can.
“ Good boy” his boss says as he turns his back around to keep working.
“Thank you sir” Donnie says as he place the new can with price tag back with the others.
“We haven’t had customer in so long…” His boss says just as the ring of the bell of the door goes off.
The door opens and in comes a long and thin young man with jet black hair came walking in. He wore blue shirt that match his blue eyes. He walks down grabbing basket as he went along.
Donnie shallows as he watches the boy walk around. Donnie looks down at the box of cans. He was trying to hide blush on his cheeks. Why was he blushing? Wasn’t even like he knew the guy.
“Hey can you tell me if you have some Dried fruit?”
Donnie looks up into the face of the blue shirt wearing young man. Donnie shallows and looks down rather quickly and shyly.
“Well?” he asked.
Donnie could see his boss looking towards him with confusion. “Er yes we do” Donnie answers him in bit of rush. Causeing himself to blush again as he looks away quickly.
“Good!” He says and looks down at Donnie with smile on his face. “ I have another question!”
“ Yea?” Donnie answers as he shyly looks back up at him.
“ Can I take you out to dinner tonight?” He asked. “ I’m Leo ” he adds in.
“ Dinner…” Donnie shutters. “ Yea.. yes.”
“Great!” Leo beams happily. “What may I call you?”.
“Donatello…but everyone just calls me Donnie” Donnie tells him as he blushes again.
“I will see ya tonight at 7 Donnie” Leo says and takes Donnie’s hand and kisses it. “How about I meet you here” Leo says and hand Donnie his number.
“Okay” Donnie says and write his number down on Leo’s hand.
Donnie blushes as he watches Leo walk away from him. Donnie grins as he blushes happily. That was when it hit him after Leo had left. He couldn’t go... What about Mikey and his mom? Mikey could cook sure.. But he was only 12. Donnie sighs. He loved his family. He never did anything for himself anymore.
“You can call Raph” His boss speaks up. As if he knew just what Donnie was thinking. “ You have do something’s for you..”.
“ My family… they need me” Donnie says. “ Sir..”
“ Your family will be okay for one night with Raph” His boss tells Donnie. He walks over and hands the phone to Donnie. “ Call Raph”.
“ Thanks Sir” Donnie says and quickly dials Raph’s number. He hears it ringing till Raph answers. “ Hello Raph”
“Donnie boy” Raph answers the phone with grin.
“Can you do me a favor? I would be so happy if you could please Raph” Donnie says.
“You know I will do anything for you” Raph says and smiled into the phone. “ All you have to do is name it”.
“Thanks” Donnie smiled. “ I got asked out on date tonight… “ He pauses before continuing “ I was wondering if you could stay at my place and keep eye on my brother and mother. Please Raph”.
“Yea you got it” Raph smirks. “ You have fun! Remember lover boy, I want to know everything! So I know I don’t have kick anyone’s butt for hurting you”.
“Raph” Donnie says and flushes. “ Thanks Raph”.
“Your welcome Donnie boy” Raph smiled.
“ It means so much to me” Donnie beams happily.
“ You need this Donnie” Raph says and smiled.
That evening, Donnie stood outside the small ma and pa’s grocery store he work at for Leo to arrive to pick him up for their date. He sure hope it went well even if was only one date. Donnie starting to rethink this with worry in his head.
That was when blue pickup truck pulled up next to him. Donnie watches as the window of the truck rolled down. In he sees the dark haired Leo grinning happily toward Donnie.
“Hop in” Leo says as he unlocks the door for Donnie.
“Thanks..” Donnie says as he gets in the car with the shut of the door.
“Wow you look great” Leo beams happily as he looks Donnie up and now.
Donnie glances away from him and fights back a blush that forums on his cheeks. He looks back over seeing Leo watching him with warm smile at him. Made Donnie feel bit jealous of him. He could smile like that. Donnie couldn’t find the will to smile a lot like that. Where he just wish he could.
“Thank you” Donnie says as he smiled shyly towards Leo. “ So where are we going?” he asked Leo.
“ I found this nice little place on my way to town when I first got here” Leo tells Donnie with smile. “ Ray’s place I believe it was called”.
“ That place is lovely, but also cost a lot” Donnie tells him. “ Are you sure?”.
“Yes I am” Leo says. “ I want to spoil you!”.
“Me?” Donnie says as he stares at Leo. He looks quickly back down at his hands. “ I’m sorry, I’m not use to being spoiled as you say…”.
“Well tonight Donnie you will be” Leo says and leans over kissing Donnie’s cheek gently. Before leaning back and starts his car off.
By the end of the night, Donnie sat on the edge of the creek in the town. He lean into Leo as Leo had his arm around him. “It’s funny” Donnie speaks up.
“What’s is funny?” Leo asked as he looks down at brown haired young man in his arms.
“ Happy…I’ve never felt this happy before” Donnie tells him. “ I don’t want to lose this feeling”. He held onto Leo’s hand. “ I know..I will”.
“You never been happy?” Leo asked feeling concern.
“ When my father left, I was 14… We just woke up that morning…” Donnie sighs. “ His suit case and wallet and car… all gone”.
“Donnie..Im sorry” Leo says and pulls Donnie closer.
“ I know he was having troubles at work…. Mom and him had been fighting… “ he sighs. “ We just never saw it coming…. Now Mom is so closed off… She never leaves the house… I feel terrible for feeling ashamed of her” Donnie says. He quickly rubs his brown eyes before he could cry.
Leo quietly listens to Donnie. He gently rubs Donnie’s shoulders. Waiting for him to say more.
“I love my mother… I love my little brother Mikey… I hate… working so hard… I just want to be kid… I want go to school….But I can’t do that… and I understand…”Donnie explains. Tears start filling his brown eyes. “ I want to fall in love… get married you know…I’m scared… scared I will become my mother.. because my lover will leave me…I will be closed off and scared for the rest of my life.”
Leo pulled Donnie then on his lap and hugs him. “ I know we just met” Leo says softly. “ Donnie…I will never leave you or hurt you”. He leans over kissing Donnie’s head.
Donnie smiled through his tears. He pulls his head back and leans closer. He places his lips on Leo’s. He kisses him, not even sure if he would even get kiss back. He just didn’t care. Felt so right to Donnie and he loved it all.
Leo could feel his own heart fluttering in his chest and kisses Donnie on the lips . He keeps Donnie close in his arms. He never kiss someone he barely knew. He never believed in love at first sight either. Maybe he should really re think that.
Leo cups Donnie’s face in his hands and looks into Donnie’s chocolate brown eyes. “ I want to spend whole summer with you, I want to help you and your family” he tells Donnie softly. Before Donnie could say word, he leans in kissing Donnie again on his soft pink lips.
Leo did get his answer from Donnie in
