Sweat drips down my brow.

If I move the troops to the left,

the defense is left wide open.

If I move to the right,

my cavalry may be slaughtered.

I decide to move my infantry straight up.

My other cavalry unit comes from behind

and attacks the opponents main force.


I attack the heart of the army itself.

For one moment, my eyes meet those of my opponent.

I smile.


A/N: Again, the format messed everything up. Lines 3, 5, 8 and 11 should be on the right side of the screen. Thanks.

This is dedicated to a semi-friend of mine who loves to play chess.
