I look up from the newspaper to see my nephew standing there. “Uncle John,” he says “do you know where I can learn to become a ninjuh?” “A ninja?” I look my timid nephew up and down, a friendly boy with stick-thin arms and a shock of lovely curls. “ Now why would you want to become a ninja?” He looks at his feet. “Just because,” he murmurs, and “I thought it’d be interesting.” “What do ninjas have to learn in school, you think?” His face lights up. “They’d have to learn to be really good at avoiding bad guys. And probably,” he ponders “they’d have to learn to kill them with stealth.” “Stealth?” “Yeah, that’s when you see someone and they don’t see you.” “Would you like to be able to do that?” “Sometimes,” he shrugs. “Like when?” I see him thinking. “Well, there’s these bigger kids that bully all the smaller kids in the neighbourhood.” “Go on.” “Those kids just keep picking on me, and I can’t stop ‘em.” “Don’t worry, kiddo,” I say, “I know just what to do. You just go to your room and play.” He looks at me, puzzled. “It ‘s gonna be alright, don’t worry.” He leaves the room, I wait until I hear his footsteps on the stairs and retrieve my ninja suit from its secret hiding place.
