F3 Pawns

            In the world of the supernatural, Mystics like Tony were on top. They were kings. Vampires, witches, lycanthropes and others filled out the rest as queens, rooks, bishops, and knights. They all fought with one another on who was more powerful, but one thing was clear: human beings were the bottom. We were pawns in their games, little more than a source of entertainment and food.
            But it was a funny thing about pawns, they can slip through defenses. They can defy expectations, and out of all the pieces on the board, only the pawns could become something more.
            So long as we could make it across the board.
            I picked up the phone, calling Nikki. The vampire and I had an unusual relationship, so if this was going to work, she would be the one to help make it happen.
            “Nikki, I’ve got a proposition for you. No, not that kind. . . .”
