Prompt: Age is just a number

Age is just a number

Her brother was four years her senior and had yet to put his fun and games aside, yet to become serious enough about his future responsibility to their family.

She had been a tender three years old when she had opened her first book in an attempt to gain her father's attention. Father had seen her and immediately taken away the book. She had been rubbing that fact in his face.

She was a girl of three, probably unable to read the book anyway.

Father learned many years later that age didn't account for intelligence.

Age was just a number.
