Bikky had been in and out of trouble most of his life. With his mother dead and his father usually involved in committing some crime or another, he was alone a lot of the time and it was only natural that he would follow in his father’s footsteps and resort to petty crime. What other opportunities did he have?
“That’s all changed now, Bikky, you have a chance to start over with a clean slate,” Ryo told him. “It won’t be easy, there will have to be changes; you’ll need to work harder at school in order to get caught up, do your homework every night, and follow the rules. That means no stealing and no telling lies. But if you’re willing to make the effort you could have a bright future ahead of you.”
“I’ll try my hardest, Ryo. I promise.”
“I believe you. Come on, let’s go home.”
