“Ow! Shit!” Dee yelped. “That’s not funny, squirt! You could’a taken my eye out!”
“Bikky, what did you do?” Ryo, who was leading the way along the narrow woodland path, rounded on his foster son.
“I didn’t do anything, I swear! I just pushed a branch out of my way!”
“Yeah, and then you let it fly back and hit me in the face!” Dee raised his hand to where a thin red line was visible on his cheek, already weeping blood.
Ryo sighed; he should’ve known it was bad idea inviting Dee to join them on their nature hike.
