"Why did you move that horse chess piece?" Nurul asked Razmi. Razmi was playing chess with his friend, or he would prefer considers her as an arch-enemy, in chess. Razmi replied to Nurul "this is a plan and one of my tactics to win this game, dummy", replied with a serious face, trying to show that he was concentrating for the game. Nurul nodded and smile innocently.
Nurul is a 7 years old kid, a neighbor of Razmi. Razmi`s opponent, Hanida is the same age as he is, but she is a little bit matured and more friendly, so happy-go-lucky type.
"Eh kak Nida, why did you move that piece?" said Nurul. Nida smiled instead, saying "you know, in a game like this, players must move their piece in order to defeat their opponent. so, i`m moving this Queen in order to check his King, making his pieces paralyzed in order to save the King. hopefully I can checkmate though".
"What is checkmate?"-Nurul. "Can you shut up please?" Razmi yelled. Nurul startled. "Relax, Mi. She`s just a kid. Maybe furiously curious. We were once like that, kan?. Relax lah. I bet you`re so stressed to win me. teeheheee" Hasnida interfered with a quick bossy face and a teasing face. Razmi`s ego burned up because he felt so challenged with that sarcastical teasing look. Nurul quickly went behind Nida`s back scared, apologizing.
After 27 minutes playing, Razmi had to face the truth. He lost to Nida. With an angry face, he went to Makcik Salmah`s stall nearby and bought a plastic bag full of ice-cream. "Take this. Your reward. Like I promised, it`s my treat. You can take it too, Nurul" said Razmi.
Finished eating the whole bunch of ice-cream. They gathered back to that pondok and started to arrange the order back for each chess pieces, starting a new game.
"Why are you two doing?" - Nurul. "Play chess lah. Nak buat apa lagi dengan board chess ni." said Razmi.
"But why?" Nurul replied.
"Sayang, we`re playing a new game. Seems like Razmi cant get enough of defeat. (with a cynical laugh) And because we wanted to see the mistakes we made in our steps. We would try to repair the errors, if we could" - Hasnida
I guess, people do something for special reasons, dont they?
And sometimes, even if they dont have any reasons to do that something, they could create one to make their life a comedy drama. Arent they?
