Ryo glanced up from his book as an argument broke out between his lover and his son over who got to pick what they watched on TV. Within seconds the disagreement had escalated from a war of words to a full-on battle over the remote, wrestling, kicking, punching, tugging, and shoving, until Bikky resorted to using his teeth and emerged triumphant.
“Bikky, what have I told you about biting?” Ryo said wearily.
“Sorry, Ryo, but the perv wouldn’t let go! What was I supposed to do?”
There was no good answer to that, or at least no answer that would satisfy both parties. Sometimes Ryo thought the only way Dee and Bikky could communicate was through conflict, each of them determined to gain the upper hand.
‘I wonder if it would be worthwhile trying to get them into some sort of family counselling…’ Ryo mused, then dismissed the idea. Even if he succeeded in getting both parties to attend the same session, it would no doubt descend into chaos, the counsellor unable to get a word in edgewise as Dee and Bikky loudly aired their grievances before resorting to kicking and punching again.
“Right, here’s what’s going to happen; Bikky, you can have the remote tonight until it’s your bedtime, but from now on, whenever Dee’s here you take it in turns. I’m tired of you two forever fighting when all I want is a bit of peace. Now be quiet; you’re giving me a headache.”
“Yes, Ryo,” they chorused.
