Five Sentence Fiction: Perserverance

Word prompt: Perseverance

Dot looked out at the audience sitting crossed legged before her.

It was Grandparent day, and she had been invited to her grandson’s classroom to give insight into how to live a happy and long life.

It was question time and a rosy-cheeked girl in the front row had asked ‘ Is living to the age of 96 to do with perseverance?’

Dot smiled ‘ Oh know my dear, it is a lot harder than that!’

‘ The secret to living a long and happy life is a mixture of three ingredients….good luck, good genes and most importantly a positive outlook, I live each day to the full, as if it were my last!’
