So we sit across the table. This board between us. Time and some random moves separating us.
I check all the pieces. Left with a few. Your foolish haste never ceases to amaze.
I check the pieces. I win again. Yes! I’m invincible!

Leave me alone! I’m free to make my moves.
I shudder. What’s your next move?
No. It doesn’t end like this. Let’s begin again.
