Bikky poked suspiciously at the contents of his plate. “The carrots and peppers aren’t cooked.”
Ryo chuckled. “Raw vegetables are good for you, Bikky. They’re full of the vitamins and minerals you need to grow up strong and healthy.” He bit into a carrot stick himself, enjoying the taste and texture, crunchy and sweet. “If you’re serious about becoming a professional basketball player, then you need to eat right. Pizza, burgers, and candy are fine as treats, but they won’t build strong bones.”
Picking up a slice of pepper, Bikky studied it thoughtfully. He wanted to play basketball more than anything, and if this was what it took…
He took a bite, crunched it up, swallowed. It actually didn’t taste too bad; it was sweet and juicy. Shrugging, he dug in. Everyone had to make sacrifices in order to fulfil their dreams. Bikky supposed he could live with raw veggies.
