Ryo always seems to be on one health kick or another; right now it’s nuts. Literally. He’s decided Bikky is eating way too much sugar, so candy, cookies, and cakes are being rationed, replaced in most cases by more suitable snacks, such as fresh fruit, seeds, and nuts. There’s not a single bar of chocolate or bag of potato chips in the whole apartment! Bikky knows; he checked.
Now his packed lunch is a sandwich, made with wholemeal bread, a couple of pieces of fruit, a bag of nuts or sunflower seeds, and a carton of fruit juice instead of his usual soda. It sucks.
Carol doesn’t think so though; she even seems kinda envious and after a few days she starts bringing nuts for snacks too.
“They’re so much healthier,” she insists. “Full of protein, fibre and vitamins.”
“I prefer the ones covered in chocolate,” Bikky grumbles, because he’s twelve, just a kid, and candy is what kids crave. “Nuts are for squirrels and seeds are for birds.”
“Nuts and seeds are brain food though,” Carol insists. “They make you smarter.”
“Really?” Bikky’s not sure whether he believes her or not, but… “Well, I guess they’re not so bad.”
