Once upon a time there lived a King and Queen. They loved each other so much that they were always right beside each other. They never separated, and their love allowed a kingdom to be built around them.
One day another kingdom declared war. Despite a great threat from the opposing kingdom the King and Queen held on to their love and always remained side-by-side.
Around them subjects died, their fortress fell, warriors succumb and priests gave their lives to protect the love the King and Queen shared.
As the Queen fell into the King’s arms he too lost his life. The Queen meant everything to him.
When the words “Checkmate” came, it meant nothing for a King that loved his Queen more than chess itself.
