Five Sentence Fiction- Wisdom

Word Prompt- Wisdom

She looked at her six-year-old son and beamed.

He had a wisdom beyond his years, his behaviour this morning had yet again confirmed it.

‘Mum, can I put the clothes in the washing machine for you?’ he had asked without prompting.

She had said yes, it wasn’t the first time he had asked, he loved pouring the colourful washing liquid ‘ green slime’ into the machine.

When the load had finished and she had walked into the laundry, inside the washing machine was a completed wash of colours only, the whites had been set aside for load two…Her son was indeed a genius!!

    Our son is 19 and he doesn’t separate the the darks and lights. He does do his own laundry though…

    a fun little story. Thanks for sharing!
