It was hard to believe at times that he was really here, in California, playing basketball for a major league team. Some days, Bikky had to pinch himself to make sure he wasn’t dreaming. This had been his ambition for as long as he could remember; even at four or five years old, whenever someone asked him what he was going to be when he grew up, his answer had always been, “A basketball player.” Mostly they’d laughed, not believing him, but now he’d finally made it.
It seemed a bit surreal.
“I always knew you could do it!” Carol had exclaimed, hugging him excitedly after he’d told her. That had been six months ago and his life had been a mad whirl since then, but he was loving every minute.
“How does it feel to be the team’s rising star?” a reporter asked, shoving a microphone in his face after a big game.
“It feels amazing and a bit scary, there’s a lot of pressure, but I’ve been working towards this my whole life and I’m loving it.” He leant forwards a bit further. “Just want to say hi and thank you to my family and friends back home in New York, the guys I played with and against growing up, because without their support, I wouldn’t be here now. I miss you guys, but I’ll see you soon.”
No matter where he went or what he did, Bikky vowed he was never going to forget his old friends
