Flash! Friday

FF – 17th October 2014

This week the prompt was to include a Nemesis with the following picture (and for a bonus challenge we couldn’t use the word ‘chess’.



“After thousands of years of fighting between you and me and it comes down to this; one simple game.”
“This is no simple game,” said God. “This is all about strategy and patience.”
“Are you not feeling the pressure?” said the Devil.
“Of course not. I’ve always been the better player. Do you think if I had any doubt I would have agreed to your challenge?”
“I was surprised,” said the Devil as he moved another piece. “Check.”
God frowned for a split second. He hovered his hand over the rook and then pulled it back. Instead he moved his remaining knight. “Ha! Nothing to worry about.” He relaxed back in his chair. “The fate of the universe is safe.”
“So sure, old friend,” said the Devil as he picked up his rook and moved it across the board, dragging the base slowly across the checkered surface. He looked up at God and smiled. “Check. Mate.”
