Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
Looking at Bikky, hunched up in the chair, Ryo’s heart ached for the boy. He was so small, just a kid, and he’d lost everything. Dick Goldman hadn’t been much of a father but he’d been all Bikky had, his only family.
Ryo understood only too well what the boy was going through. Even after ten years, he clearly remembered how he’d felt when his parents were killed. Nothing had ever hurt worse, and he’d been almost twice Bikky’s age.
Grief was a heavy burden for someone so young. Ryo would make sure Bikky didn’t have to carry it alone.
