Life is Good (Epilogue)

2 years after the situation with the Purple Dragons, Leo, Raph, Don, and Mikey all sat around the TV, attempting to get through a level on LEGO Star Wars. While it had been Mikey's idea, they all were enjoying themselves.

They hit the 'pause' button when Leo's cellphone buzzed in his pocket. He pulled it out and answered.

"Hello?... What?..." The others noticed tears forming in his eyes. "I'll be there" Leo hung up and raced out of the door before Don, Mikey, and Raph could say anything.

They chased him through the town before they finally rounded onto the memory filled street.

They watched as Leo stopped in front of his old house, where there was a man. They stepped closer to get a look at the man's face and were met with the smiling face of Samuel.

"It's him... Samuel," Raph breathed.

They watched happily as Leo threw his arms around his father and they embraced.

Leo and Samuel strode towards the three boys, smiles spread across their faces and tears leaking out of their eyes.

"Guys, I guess you haven't formally met my father. Dad, this is Raph, Mikey, and Donnie." Leo introduced them.

"It's great to meet you all." Samuel's voice was deep, but instead of slurred, it held gentleness.

"Pleasure," Don replied.

"Wow..." Mikey murmured.

"What is it, goof?" Raph asked, ruffling Mikey's shaggy blonde hair.

"It's like our lives came full circle." He breathed.

"Uh... come again?" Leo laughed slightly.

"Well, when we first met, our lives were pretty crappy, then it went downhill, then really downhill, now it's all better... like a movie sort of."

The other three boys exchanged weird glances before breaking out laughing. "Mikey, your comparisons seriously need to be modified." Don said.

"What? It's true!" Mikey defended.

"Whatever, nucklehead. I guess what you're trying to say is, 'life is good." Raph sighed before leaning his arm on Leo's shoulder.

"Yeah, life is good," Leo smiled. He moved towards his dad and wrapped an arm around him.

"Love ya, dad."
