The Chess Game

Updated: Mar 17, 2019

Thomas arose and looked around the walled garden, suppressing a sense of panic. Noticing a door in the wall, he ran to it. It was locked.

Panic growing, he turned around and an intricately carved podium appeared on which a half-played game of chess sat on top. Looking closer, he saw words begin to appear around the chessboard:

“Play if you will, but know The key to much more do I hold.

Others have tried, to no avail A testament theirs, if you fail.

One move you get And one will be check,

Either for you Or for me.”
