VisDare 45: Scrutiny


“I always knew you’d come to a bad end, Roger.” William glared at his nemesis and scowled.

Roger did not respond.

“You cheated on your taxes, fine. The government is run by a bunch of incompetent nincompoops. You cheated on your wife, not as fine, but she cheated on you, too. You cheated at golf – and hell, you still shot a 103. But chess, Roger? You cheated at chess?”

Roger again did not respond.

“And it wasn’t just that you cheated, Roger. It was how you cheated. I mean, using not just two, but three Queens? And when playing Medusa?” William sighed. Roger stared wordlessly, his face unreadable.

“To top it all off, you almost got away with it. But, noooo, you had to have it your way. I told you to get the good mirrored sunglasses, but you cheated there too.”

Stone-faced, Roger spoke not a word in response.
