Final version for flash fiction comp '20

We are the pawns

August 17, 2020

The spiteful, mocking words bite deeply, my belief has shied away. Pity begins to dribble through the course bristles of my paintbrush. Mournfully I gaze at the canvas resting on my easel, I can see through the midst of my abstract colour-colliding piece. It's the outline of my brother, his calm voice speaking in it's up and down tone. He is intently explaining the importance of a Saturday afternoon's game of chess. I try to smile, except the memory brutally tortures my soul. The realisation hits. We are the pawns on the board, purposed to lift our superiors baggage.

    Thank you so much for the review! I fixed (and added) a bunch of stuff. Just thought I’d let you know. Have a good night (or day, depending on when you read this.)
