This story is so awesome!!!!!!!!!! And original… a princess made of jewels, a chess tournament for her hand, a starfish festival… I’ve never read anything like it! Also, I absolutely adore Checkless. 🙂 My favorite line…
““We both have our own worlds we must share, despite how chaotic, how bizarre, and diverse each one might be.”
Really good job on your first story of the year!
My goal is to publish a short story on Story Embers, finish the first draft of my novel, The Apprentice Spy, and a few other non-writer things.
I'm short, I like words, and I love people.
