“I thought being thirteen was gonna be great, but this sucks!” Bikky complained, his voice trailing off in an embarrassing squeak.
Ryo smiled and squeezed the boy’s shoulder. “I know, I’ve been there, when I was around your age; made me not want to talk to anyone. But remember, sooner or later all your friends will have to go through the same thing. It’s all part of growing up.”
“But why can’t my voice make up its mind? Everyone’s gonna laugh at me!”
“Some might, the ones whose voices aren’t changing yet, but they’ll change their tune when it happens to them.”
“I change my tune every time I open my mouth. God, what’s Carol gonna think?”
“That you’re changing from a boy into a man, and that’s a good thing. You wouldn’t want to sound like a kid for the rest of your life, would you?”
“I guess not, but I thought when your voice changed it happened all at once.” The last few words came out in surprisingly deep tones.
“Nothing about being a teenager is that easy.” Ryo’s smile turned wry as he remembered the he’ll of going through puberty. “Survive this, and you can survive anything.”
