Tien has always known he could be something special.
not just the dragon bracelet, or the ace of spades he keeps in his sleeve, or
even the top hat where his bunny sleeps. It’s not the fact that he grew up in a
big house with a nanny who smoked too many cigarettes to be around a child or
the perpetually empty family room where his parents should have watched
television and laughed with him.
not even, although this comes much later, the fortitude of his character which
called a ninja star to him.
age five, he goes to a magic show in a little town where the locals claim
monsters are alive and walking among them, and he’s never been more sure that
magic is real.
For your entire life, Nanny has done the best she could to raise you. Have I been perfect? No. Does Nanny know anything about children? No! Should Nanny have picked up a book on parenting?! Probably! Where was I going? Nanny had a point.
YOUR GIRL GOT A NEW JOB AND IS STARTING AT THE END OF THE MONTH!!!!
I hate negotiating pay but the family immediately accepted my counter offer and y'all… I’m so happy. It still hasn’t totally sunk in yet but… wow. I’m so honored they chose me and they’re such a great family and the kids are the cutest things everrrrrrrrrrrr.
