Sorting the laundry ready for washing, Ryo shook his head, wondering if he’d been like this as a kid. He couldn’t really remember, but thought he probably had been. Boys will be boys.
Bikky’s pockets were full of stuff. Money, of course, sweets, small stones and what looked like it might have been a flower at some point. A wad of tissues, half a biscuit, bubble gum, screws from something, three rubber bands, a shoelace, a couple of bent paper clips and a piece of string, a spring from inside a pen, a pencil stub, and a note from school which Ryo should have had days ago.
“Bikky, why didn’t you tell me parent’s evening was coming up?” he asked, waving the note.
Bikky’s eyes went wide.
“Oops! Sorry, Ryo, I forgot!”
“It’s a good thing I check your pockets, otherwise it would have gone in the wash,” Ryo sighed.
