Con este relato gané el 1er puesto en el IV Concurso Literario del MECON (Ministerio de Economía).
English version here:
Extreme SituationShe was cornered. There was no escape. Forward was an army. To her left, a large tower blocked her path. She glanced back: move back was impossible. To her right, ends the alley. She remained motionless, reviewing the only two diagonals that she had free. The one that broke up towards the left was full of traps. The other showed her a menace as deadly as herself. She decided to take it by surprise. Her hands, absent, trembled. She was running out of time: her chances were slipped like grains of sand. She let out an inaudible sigh and walked along the second diagonal. It took her too much time but she felt victorious. Time seemed to stop. A tense calm surrounded her. Before she can plan her next move, a horse rushed at her. She never hears the shout that was taken from the last square which she had occupied: Checkmate!
