“Y’know, I can see straight through to your brain,” Jasmine said, pretending to still be examining. “And it turns out, there’s a whole lot of it missing.” She plucked TJ’s nose. “Sike, sike, sike, sike, nah, you good. I guess I can be seen with you now.”


Look Both Ways by Jason Reynolds

Jasmine is checking TJ's nose for boogers.
What does 'sike' here refers to ?

Please help. Thank you.

    It’s another way of writing psych: Something you use after playing a prank on somebody. For example: You hide a friends prized possession, and tell the you lost it. After they can’t find it, you show it to the and shout “psych!”
