Hey!! What's the story?
"Check!" utters his opponent, glancing at the clock. It's six o'clock.
A blush spreads from Theobald's neck to his face. He sips tea to mask his upset. He is furious at his oversight so late in the game. He spots a defensive move with his bishop. Short of options, he takes it.
His opponent moves their queen. "Checkmate!" A smug grin follows.
Theobald thumps and thrashes at the table, scattering chess pieces everywhere.
Through a toughened glass porthole, two doctors observe the patient. "This is Theobald Madison Hatter. He just lost a game of chess... against himself."
