N/A


After a long day of classes Rei was ready to relax and have a nice dinner before doing her homework for Monday. It was much easier to do it Friday evening than spend all day Sunday doing it after her full day of Dance and Dueling on Saturdays. Sitting down in her seat tiredly she started to load her plate and noticed something odd going on down the way from her; two people were playing chess.

It wasn't unheard of for people to play it, and Rei considered herself above decent with it; not exactly Master level, but close she was still learning after all. But she could predict three to four of the players next moves which put her ahead of most she played. She kept an eye on the games as she ate and finally decided to move over after she was done with her meal and watched the game as it played, predicting the moves before they were played and most times she was actually right. It made the game entertaining to her and about half way through she spoke up; May I play the winner? thanks!

Ulrich twirled his fork in hand, more playing with his dinner than actually eating it. His concentration was on the game in front of him, different moves and strategies going through his mind at breakneck pace. If there was one thing in his life he was one hundred percent confident in, it was chess.

Not to sound arrogant, of course. He was far from the best. He couldn't predict moves or pull off multiple maneuvers at once, but he liked to think he was a decent strategist. At the very least, his win-loss ratio was about even. Ulrich moved his bishop a few squares, his opponent moved his rook in retaliation, and Ulrich captured that rook with his knight.

There was a light curse before their shoulders slumped. It was a younger student, one who'd expressed an interest in sharpening their skills, and Ulrich had offered to help. Seeing that despondent expression though, Ulrich felt guilty. "You're getting better though. You're still being too hasty with your moves and not seeing where the danger is. Where's your queen?"

The student looked at their queen and studied the board for a moment before their shoulders slumped even further. "Right there, in the perfect position to get your knight. Dammit." They studied the board a bit more before sighing. "I can't save this, can it? Bah. I'll get you one day, Stern."

Ulrich grinned and nodded. "I look forward to it." A voice piped up from the side, asking to play the winner, and Ulrich looked over and blinked. It was an older student, female and from the elite dorm. Ulrich didn't know more than that about her, not even her name. "Yeah, sure. We're about done here anyway."

He reset the board after the younger student tipped his king in the proper surrender and looked over. "My name's Ulrich, by the way. Ulrich Stern. We were never properly introduced."

Rei watched the game in front of her and n ++oticed the inexperience of the younger. He would get better with time, and the winner was good, not quite her level but he was getting there. The only reason she was this good was from her step father. He was insistent she and her little brother learn to play and play well.

She smiled when the younger student ceded and when he was gone moved into his seat as the board reset. She could tell the pieces were angry at constantly losing and she hoped they wouldnt take that anger out on her. She didn't recognize her opponent, he was in the regular dorms and slightly younger than her. Technically they probably shouldn't intermingle, but chess was chess. Pleasure to meet you Ulrich Stern, Rei Ikari at your service. She gave a nod of her head. You been playing long? thanks!
