Checkmate

She stared at the board, the pieces reflecting in her eye.  The move was right there in front of her.  She could end the game right now but she didn’t want to if it meant being with him a bit longer.  He was flying back to Moscow shortly.

She could feel him watching her.  Did he have any idea of how she felt about him?  Perhaps, not.  If he did, she’d be history.  Theirs was a purely physical relationship.  No strings attached.  But, that was before her heart got involved…

He glanced at his watch.

She made her move.  “Checkmate.”

    • Thanks, Jilly 🙂 I’m hoping that she will get out of the relationship but who knows. Although it’s clear that he doesn’t love her, she loves him. While she wants to prolong their time together, he’s glancing at his watch. I hope she will find the courage to end it and move on.
