"We wish to speak with your seventh son."
"I only have six sons."
"Impossible! Are you not, yourself, a seventh son?"
"But you have only six offspring?"
"No, Merle, my daughter-"
"Dad," Merle said, "they speak truth. I... I haven't told you, but... I am your seventh son."

@MicroSFF looks like Pratchett's discworld story about a wizzard girl ... :D
Same premise, different take.
@MicroSFF hmm. this brings to mind the possibility of a seventh son losing his mystical seven-power when his older sibling realizes they're trans. interesting possibilities.
I'm reminded of Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett.
