Emil had pulled out the Agon board he had bought and told her he actually knew how to play. Not only did he know how to play, he told her he thought a lot of her analogies with the game were rather stupid. As if Coleen was talking about putting the queen undefended ahead on the board.
“Good thing I was talking for morale,” she retorted. “Those analogies were never a real game of Agon.”
“Why don’t you admit you simply said those things to make your game more interesting? To give your opponent a chance to do something that might make you need to think.”
Coleen did not reply. Emil had said it out loud, so there was no point in admitting it.
“You should have told Lamar his move was illegal, rather than losing your temper.”
