    Summary

    "Benny knows what the optics are-- the seasoned professional taking an attractive young ingenue under his wing, ‘teaching’ her everything he knows, it reads like a drugstore paperback. Honestly, he’s not sure who should be more insulted: him, for the implication that he would seduce a eighteen-year-old under the guise of mentoring her, or Beth, for people thinking she could be so gullibly had."

    Summary

    This chess is brutal. Analyzing each move, each potential move, and why not the other moves, each potential position, each vulnerability is like they’re performing an autopsy, unmasking the other players and their games one at a time.

    Chess is still beautiful to her, but in a different way. This type of chess is like a bruise, she thinks. It is a bruise that lays her skin bare, reminds her that she is just skin and bone. But somehow, she can’t help but run her fingers over it, the delicate flesh, until it smarts or the pain fades. And when she puts it up to the light, all she sees is a beautiful, mottled purple.

    Without the numbing effects of the pills and the drinks, she finds she likes it, the way this chess almost hurts.

    Summary

    She leans back in and they’re kissing again, and god, all Benny wants to do for the rest of his life is this, forget chess, fuck chess. (Even in his haze though, he takes that back immediately. All he wants to do is this and chess for the rest of his life. Nothing else, though.)

    Summary

    It wasn’t like that at all. 

    She had suspected, long before Benny Watts, that sex was worth trying. It followed logically from the way people acted about it.
