Checkmate The feeling I get when were together ... I cant explain it. The rush, the excitement, abilities beyond most peoples imagination. My name is Redwan and this lovely figure next to me is Nena. We are king and queen of the land of the White Time. We are in a time of great war. The Black Distance is trying to destroy our people and if either the king or queen are taken out then its game over. So needless to say we are there primary targets. Our knights are spread thin across the land fighting there own battles so we are left with just each other. But im thinking that's all were going to need. . . . Frozen Feelings I leg sweep a pawn and then lift him into the air. Nena rolls over my back and kicks him into the canyon wall. He smashes into the wall and collapses to the floor breathless. The other two pawns run off the way they came in a hurry. I hug Nena in excitement lifting her off the groud. R-"We did it again Nena! Another wave of pawns taken down." I hold her and rock back and forth so ecstatic that we made it through another fight. N-"Yeah we did it. She says rather slowly. She turns and looks at the pawn left on the ground with a saddened look on her face. R-" What's wrong Nena?" Her expression puzzles me as I thought she would be happy that we won. I look into her once sparkling eyes that seem to have grown dull out of despair. N-" Another one is gone." Her eyes grow dark and slowly roll downward. R- " We won though; we can't always help the casualties." I hope to reassure her but my words don't seem to help whats bothering her. N- "That's not what I mean. It's not the casualties that bother me." I reach for her soft hand and take it in mine. She raises her stunning green eyes and looks up at me. R-" Than what troubles you my love? I cant stand to see her sad like this. There must be a deeper reason for the sorrow that has brought so much darkness into those eyes that I never thought would lose there shine. N-" Its just ... we keep fighting black soldiers and keep winning but... She says the words slowly and drops her head back down. R-" But what? What else can we do Nena?" There is despair in her voice as I try to comfort her for a problem I cant figure out. N-" When is it ever going to end? We can't just keep fighting forever?" Her eyes begin to glisten as she breaks into tears and falls to her knees. R-"Hey now it will be alright I'll protect you." I drop to my knees next to her and put my arms around her. N-" I know but I want it all to end (sniff) please just make it end." She cries into my shoulder and I want so badly to tell her its over right now. I want to tell her with one word I can end this war and we can go back to the way things were, but I cant. R-"Don't worry Nena I promise it will be over soon. I'll make sure of it." I don't know if I can carry through on my promise but ill give it my all. N-" I hope so. I sure hope so." I pull her in close to me as she tries to quell her tears. R-Know this my queen, that I will do everything in my power to protect you and I will use my whole life fighting for you. If it comes down to that then I will use my last breath to tell you I love you. We kneel there in each others arms knowing this is the beginning of something much bigger than we've ever faced together and I for one feel as though Click here to read the rest of this story (352 more lines)
