CHECKMATE

By Neel Anil Panicker 

‘So, that’s our best move?’

Well, I would say that’s our only move.

‘And why would you say that?’

Hmm…ah…well…

‘Stop spluttering, will you? Come on, spit it out’

You see…your father…

‘My father…he needs to  die, right?’

What I mean…

‘You mean he’s needs to go if we’re to get rich, right?’

That’s right for holy goodness! We kill your old man ‘coz he’s the only soul on Planet Earth who knows we’ve skimmed over a 100 crores from about ten odd banks, ‘coz otherwise you and I spend the rest of our lives in prison.

  6. Dear Neel,

    That’s one deadly game they’re playing. Could come back to bite them. Nicely done. (?) The writing…not the two boys. 😉

    Shalom,

    You mean “he needs to go” and not “he’s…”

  10. Oh dear, father better watch out but it sounds as if they have no option other than to accept their guilt and not be so selfish
