Jay sat back in his chair and scoffed. “You behind the times, Uncle K. Get plenny kine shark bite people: bull shark, great white, tiger, hammerhead—”

 

“No. Only one kine: Niuhi.”

 

“No, I saw it on Shark Week! In Australia—”

 

“You stay Australia?”

 

Jay paused, confused. “No,” he said.

 

“Then why you worried about Australia?”

 

“I not, I—”

 

“Good. Then listen to your uncle. In Hawaii only get one kine shark for worry about: Niuhi.”

 

“Niuhi?” Jay looked around the lānai. “What kine is that?”

 

“Told you,” said Uncle Kahana. “Man-eater.” He smiled. “Or man-biter. Depends on the mood.”
