Bo grabbed a glass of the juice that Mom said he couldn’t have. He was late. She was not home anyway.

He barged through the door of the chess room.  “Hi,” he giggled, steadying himself against a waiter carrying a tray of orange juice. The waiter stared back in disbelief.
“May I have a…” Bo hiccuped, “… glass of that!” he pointed to the tray.

“There are so many people.” he thought. “These sets have hundred-odd squares. Strange…” Bo laughed at the scene. He sprawled himself on an ottoman. “I will wait here until the room stops spinning.”

Hello Marianna, it’s no wonder his mother said he couldn’t have a glass of juice, it will be Checkmate when she gets home. This hundred words leaves a lot to the imagination.

Hahahaha.That’s the reason why we need to listen to our mother’s advice. Because mothers know best especially our strengths and our weaknesses.

Whoops! Bo’s inebriation takes me back to my teens Marianna. Especially the time, when as a 14 year old, I was left in charge of my younger cousins while the parents enjoyed a Saturday night out. If only I hadn’t found that bottle of vodka! Loved your story!

What an imaginative story, Marianna. I love the idea of a chess room, with its hundred odd squares. It feels like a cerebral Lewis Carroll moment, with pawns and knights instead of a tea party. It’s more than just a teenage inebriation! Love the orange juice and the ottoman – great “O” words that work well with his “O-rhyming” name.  ?

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
