“There’s someone here to see you,” said the boy’s mother, peeking into his room.

“I don’t want to see anyone,” the boy said. “I told you.”

“But this is someone very important,” his mother said. “Besides, you can’t just hide from the world for the rest of your life.”

The boy sighed. “Fine.”

His mother disappeared and a man in a business suit took her place. “Hey, pal,” the man said, sitting on the floor next to the boy. “I came by, because, well, I saw your gymnastics routine the other day, at state qualifying.”

“Oh,” said the boy. He refused to look the man in the eye.

“And I thought it was brilliant in the beginning,” the man went on. “Just wonderful, really. But then, at the end, you just couldn’t stick the landing.”

“I know,” the boy muttered.

“Like, it was bad,” the man said.

“I know,” the boy said, a little louder.

“Like, so bad that it almost made everyone forget how good your routine started out,” the man said.

“I know,” the boy said, speaking sharply now.

“Like, everyone who was cheering for you,” the man said, “felt stupid. Because you proved your biggest critics right, executing that last jump with such terrible ineptitude.”

“Look, mister, what do you want?” the boy said.

“I want to give you a lot of money,” the man said, “to do it all over again.”

Now the boy was perplexed. “What?”

“I want to just give you a whole truckload of cash,” the man said, “to do the exact thing you failed so spectacularly at just the other day.”

“Uh, okay,” said the boy.

“So we have a deal?” the man said, holding out his hand. “I give you an endless budget, and you do the same thing as before, despite the fact that last time it ended in failure?”

“Yeah, sure,” the boy said, shaking the man’s hand.

“Awesome,” the man said. Then he got to his feet and made to leave. “I’ll be in touch!”

“Wait, sir,” the boy called out after him. “Who are you?”

“I’m Casey Bloys,” the man said, “and I’m the CEO and chairman of HBO.”
