“I can’t talk about my family,” I explained to everyone at the table. “It’s too risky.”
“Wait a sec, they’re really spies?” Kiki exclaimed. “That is so cool! So, is, like Ombee a fake name, to throw people off?”
“Something like that,” I said.
“Holy Smokes,” said the kid with the backward hat. “Tell us everything.”
I smiled but shook my head. “I really can’t talk about it.”

‘Let’s frame them again!’ Zelda said. ‘I’ll commit a little crime, an then we’ll tell everyone it them.’

Leila reached inside the hat and pulled out a never-ending multi-coloured scarf. Red and green and yellow and blue and purple and orange. Her father was obviously trying to distract them from the idea of the monkey running scared outside. Classic misdirection, Leila thought.
“Hurry now!” Mr Vernon added, snapping his fingers excitedly. “A good magician should never be caught unprepared when the audience arrives.”

“Okay, um, when I was a kid, I was really smart.”
