Chess Story by Harry Demarest

HARRY DEMAREST: Better Not Tell My Wife

She told me that she’d do anything for fifty bucks.

She was shocked by my suggestion, but a deal’s a deal, and I made her do it. We played chess, and I won all three games.

I’d better not tell my wife. She’s a grandmaster, and she just wouldn’t understand.

Harry Demarest has had 20 of his 50-word stories and a few longer pieces published. He has been playing tournament chess for years, and once played chess all night with a hitchhiker he picked up in Albuquerque.
