I didn't know knowledge has so much power

She was in my arms. We were staring at the night sky. I am talking about myself and my little niece. Few days before I told her that those shiny things in the sky are called stars.

Last night, she told the same to me, “Look there, stars,” in a proud tone. I said “Who said they are stars? They aren’t stars and all.” She got triggered and immediately slapped my face, not minding that I was holding her.

Yeah, maybe knowledge is power.
