next ninja warrior.
Beckett stood at the bottom of the bounce house, thinking about (I imagine) the array of Ninja Warrior moves he might perform inside. he settled on teaching himself to run up the slide like the bigger kids were doing, his socked feet slipping and sliding, fingertips just touching the top of the slide before toppling down to the bottom. like a true warrior, he did not give up, and after unrelenting effort, he proudly accomplished what he set out to do, sat at the top grinning from ear to ear and then ran around the gym doing "flips" in celebration, legs kicking around, hands placed to the floors, pivoting. a new style of break dancing, training for something big.
