A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
Dee could hear Bikky muttering something under his breath as he lay on the floor, supposedly doing his homework. He nudged the boy’s foot with his own.
“What’re you complainin’ about now, twerp?”
Ryo says I can’t go play basketball until I’ve finished my math homework!” Bikky whined. “It’s SO not fair! I’ve done all the rest, but he knows I’m bad at math. This’ll take me all night and I’ll still get it wrong! It’s supposed to be raining Sunday; why can’t I leave it ‘til then? I’m wasting the good weather in here!”
“What’re you stuck on? Maybe I can give ya some pointers.”
“You?” Bikky sounded so astounded that Dee burst out laughing.
“Don’t sound so surprised! I’ll have you know I aced math all the way through school. Always been good with numbers.”
Bikky eyed Dee warily. “If you tell me the answers, what’s it gonna cost me?”
Dee shook his head. “Never said I’d do it for you, just I’d help you understand how to work it out for yourself.”
“As for my price; no callin’ me names for a month.”
“Deal; I can do that.”
Turned out Dee was a pretty good teacher.
