Sleep is where Mike is a Viking.
It's where he's safe and sound and comfortable and warm.
He's nearly buried under a pile of pillows, his favorite way to sleep now that he's sleeping alone.

The first part of teaching is knowing what your student already knows.

Which is why X, having opened the door with her usual degree of stealth, pads silently toward the bed.

She pauses two feet away, then says, in a normal speaking tone, "Mike."

X crouches down to scratch behind Stampy's ears, then stands back up.

"Mike."

She says that a little bit more loudly, though the pillow remains in place.

snikt

If he doesn't wake up very soon, things might end less than well.

"No."

Her voice remains even and matter-of-fact.

"It is Wolverine."

Beat.

"You should not have to ask that question."

Son, she is disappoint.

X's nostrils flare.

Some scents are unmistakable.

"I am not going to have sex with you."

Better to clear that up right away.

"We are training. Now."

"Irrelevant."

For him, at least.

"Get up."

She gives him to the count of not-quite-one before she's moving, intending to grab his arm and twist in order to leverage him out of bed.

Time is wasting.

And it is time for another skills test.

"Splinter asked."

It seems sensible enough to her.

"And if you do not get outside soon, it will be very difficult."

Beat.

"For you."

X is really, really good at merciless.

"No."

X shakes her head, just the once.

"That is because you would not wake up."

Obviously.

Right.

X takes this opportunity to step inside Mike's guard and flip him over her hip.

Or attempt to, anyway.

It's like a demonstration.

X just looks down at him, poised to move despite her casual posture.

"That is why Splinter asked. Me."

Does she need to say more?

"Four."

"Three."

X is waiting right where she is.

"Two."

Her expression remains completely blank.

"One."

Bzzzzz. Time's up.

Oh Mike.

It is only going to get worse.

But at least X is oblivious to the fashion faux pas.

"We will start with basics. For endurance."

Beat.

"Breakfast will come later."

And he had better not ask for coffee.

"Outside of the bar."

She keeps watching him, unblinking.

"Demonstrations are more effective."

"The more you try," X offers, after a long moment of silent, unblinking regard, "the less funny you will find it."

Beat.

"I am very good at that. Now go. It will be over sooner, that way."

For a given value of 'sooner'.
