“Scrambled” gan Huw Davies

Yn gwbl annheg mae’r ‘disgybl perffaith’ Davidde yn cael enw fel un trafferthus pan ddaw pennaeth newydd i’w ysgol yng nghymoedd de Cymru. Er braw i’w hathrawon mae Davidde yn datblygu diddordeb angerddol mewn sgramblo beic modur. O’r diwedd mae’n gallu herio bwlis yr ysgol ac ennill iddo’i hun barch ei dad y bu’n dyheu mor hir amdano, heb son am y Beiciwr Du.
