Prompt: Are you sure that’s the decision you want to make?
The jet was quiet, the team each relaxing in their own way as they journeyed home from a long week in the field. Emily was reading paperwork, JJ was on her phone and Rossi had grabbed his usual tumbler of scotch. You, however, were sat at the back of the jet, staring at a chess board with all of your concentration. There was no opponent, only your urge to improve your game.
Engrossed in the game, you hadn’t even noticed Spencer stand up, let alone move over to you. An audible gasp dived from your lips as you looked up in shock, making him chuckle.
‘Who’s winning?’ Spencer asked, examining the board.
“Oh,” you started, looking down at the board again. “I guess I’m kicking my ass because I’m pretty stuck on both sides.”
“Mind if I join you? I finished my book.”
“Go right ahead,” you answered, gesturing to the seat opposite.
Spencer sat, his eyes scanning the board with as much concentration as you’d had when he interrupted. You watched as his gaze flicked from piece to piece, analysing possible moves and manoeuvres till finally his fingers plucked up a knight and moved to take a bishop.
“Your move,” he said, his smile almost taunting you.
You looked down to the board at the position of your remaining pieces. Perhaps your Rook could push him back? Maybe you could use your own knight to take his in retaliation?
Spencer watched closely as you delicately placed your finger onto the Rook, lifting it and placing it further up the board. Without lifting your finger from the piece, you scanned the board, making sure it was the right move to make.
“Are you sure that’s the decision you want to make?” Spencer asked, a smirk growing on his lips.
Panic struck you, your eyes darting across the board at every piece, thinking of every counter you might make if you were Spencer. Nothing seemed out of place but he’d planted doubt in your mind. Was he messing with you? Should you call his bluff?
“Yes,” you answered confidently, removing your finger from the piece and smiling proudly as Spencer’s hand moved to the board.
“Checkmate,” said Spencer, a smug look on his face. “Finished you in two.”
