Sunrise

By Pheonix500

Drama / Mystery

Blurb

Not TTB, setting during the beginning of season 3. Mikey and Donnie share a sibling moment, watching their first sunrise on the farm.

Chapter 1

Mikey sat on the roof, lazily dragging his tongue along the wooden spoon as he stared out across the dark horizon. It was so quiet without the sounds of subway trains, car horns and water rushing in pipes. But not silent. The chorus of crickets was just a more peaceful type of noise.

He didn’t normally get up so early, but he was adjusting to the new schedule. Without staying up late patrolling, his body still only expected to get six or seven hours of sleep and snapped him awake before dawn. With everyone else asleep, it felt like he was the only person in the world, generating an odd combination of spacious relief and lonely anxiety within him. He reminded himself that it wouldn’t be for long and tried to indulge himself in the moment as he dipped the spoon back in the bowl.

As though his thoughts summoned his brother to break the spell, he noticed Donnie stumbling back towards the farmhouse from the barn. Of course. Donnie never slept.

Before he could decide whether or not he wanted to get Don’s attention, his brother sensed his presence and looked up at him with bleary eyes. “Mikey?”

He waved the chocolatey spoon in greeting. “Sup bro. Want some brownie tartare?”

Donnie frowned. “Isn’t that just uncooked batter?”

Mikey laughed, taking a long lick off the spoon. “And delicious. I found the box in the kitchen.”

Don raised an eye ridge. “How did you…?”

Mikey grinned. “The bounty of the chickens. Want some?”

Donnie shuddered. “Pass.” He looked longingly towards the house before climbing up onto the roof to join Mikey, too tired to try anything fancy. “What are you doing up here?”

Mikey pointed to the horizon where a blaze of light was starting to burn up into morning.

“Whoa.”

Mikey smiled at the wonder in Donnie’s voice. “I know. I’ve never actually seen one before.”

“Me either. Not firsthand anyway. Wow.”

Mikey huffed out a laugh and leaned against Donnie who nearly toppled, unprepared for his sudden weight. “Mikey!”

“Hey Don…?”

Donnie peeled his eyes away from the growing light to look at him. “What?”

“When we get home…” It was when, not if, because they would. Leo would wake up. They would take back their home. And they would find their dad. They just would. “…do you think we’ll ever see another?”

Donnie wrapped a comforting arm around his little brother. “Yeah. We’ll find a way.”

Mikey smiled. “Good. I want to show this to Leo and Raph when we get home.”

Donnie nodded. “Yeah, me too.”

Ma Carmela Magbanua: Love this story. The use of flashback to tell Ace and Laney's story is greatly done. Plus the different POVs of the three sisters plus Ace's are also very much fitting to the plot. Please keep on writing more. Kudos!

Amira Brown: I have no words to describe how amazingly wonderful this book is. Words can't even describe the wonderful journey that is Andrew and Sophie. True love is sometimes closer than we lead ourselves to believe and this book hits that nail on the head.

moya clarke: Great book loved it

The unknown: Very good hfjfnfkf

Artistetc84: Sucks you in like a whirlpool, first paragraph.

pussks: Awesome book. Love the writing and the plot. I highly recommend this author as a whole, all of they’re books are awesome. My only request is more updates!!

pencil: So is it need or is it love and will it be okay and is there more? In hospitals this kind of love is not on. It might go on but it is almost sacrilege and it is almost indecent. The way forward is to think in terms of ethics but as there is no need we just applaud.

caitlynvice1: Loved this. Nice job. Enjoyed the mix of supernaturals and that it didn't make me think of other Alpha books, its a bit different then the rest. You should look into having it published.

Koninika Tarafdar: WOOOOOOOOOWWWWW.Just wow.Very different from a cliche love story yet interesting.I liked how the POVs of every other character added to the development of the plot.How the story started with a bet and sex addicts and ended in such a nice position.

apalmer3: This book seems pretty well thought out. However, it is plagued with grammar mistakes and misspellings. A bit of proofreading before releasing a chapter would make the reading experience better.

Linda Corning: Wonderful read!!!! I hated having to pause my reading for sleep! Very well written and perfectly emotional. One of the best reads I've had the pleasure of in some time!

samantharochelle21: I love this book. The storyline and plot is really amazing, I couldn't put the book down. That being said, there was a few grammatical and punctuation errors. But it didn't take away the impact of the novel

Rose: At first I thought it's not worth reading but still I gave it a try and I'm glad that I did.The plot is different and kinda exciting and interesting .

amphodithnkomo: I loved every minute of the book. I won't lie-there were times I was upset with our heroine but I guess when you're in love you act stupid but overall I was pleased with the writing skill and the plot. Was really gutted that the Cyrus issue/feelings didn't pan out to be honest.Keep up the good work.
