The Invisible Soldiers

The Invisible soldier
by Asil
             Long long ago ,when Pharaohs were still lead Egypt, and when Egypt was still leaded by pharaohs, and when our fair pharaoh was introducing to death, surrounded by his two princes and their wives and whole the royal court, with interrupted voice the old pharaoh began to speak in his royal bed "Ooh ,here I am, upcoming to die, and I think it's never too late to announce the upcoming pharaoh for Egypt" the two pharaohs opened their eyes eagerly as their father finished his say, the elder prince cut the silence saying in a naïve voice "you will stay our leader and captain" the younger resumed his brother's lies "we don't care who will be the pharaoh we will stick up fo….." "SSSSSHHHH" the old pharaoh interrupted his son's talking "let me finish my last few sentences then speak as much as you can" he took a deep breath and continued "both you will take Egypt, each one will take the half, One take northern kingdom and the other take southern kingdom" their naïve smile vanished and they open their eyes unbelieving "But you have to swear in front of me if I was still alive and in front of whole Egypt that you won't ever fight which means that no one will injure his brother by his weapon in a fated battle or else…." He calmed for a moment "you won't ever lead Egypt and get down from the royal chairs for ever", the elder prince could not bear any more he stood up angrily and yelled "you can't do this, are you serious?" his father didn't reply and that made his craziness much crude "Damn, are you serious?" he turned round to face his father to see him star in the empty air, and his royal bed was the first witness on his sudden death to discover that all what he was yelling and screaming aiming to do was in vain, Pharaoh was died.
               ."He left for us a reason to stay cursing him all along our life time" said the younger pharaoh while he was checking on his pure, precious, jewel on his golden ring "everything is off, his plane was resorted us to swear in front of all Egypt" Said the elder as he was rolling in the royal room ,Both them wanted to fight to gain the loser's gold and to be the real Pharaoh for whole Egypt not just a half, they thought a lot and they gathered all their philosophers and thinkers to find a solution and they did, it must be a battle without any blood ,it must be a fight with no boxes ,and if must depend on Intelligence and courage, together they found some sort of wars called….
Chess :
                .among whole Egypt the two pharaohs sat around the chess table on a stage, the younger prince was remembering and thinking about his cunning trick, like a flashback ,back to the past when he was setting and one of his thinkers approached and told him that he would make him win ,so easy the best trick for the weaker military makes it win, he gave him in a cheesy hand a wooden chess soldier covered by a chemical material made it hidden, chanted one!, when he tell the phrases it was viewed, back to present, as they began to move their soldiers ,elephants and horses ,and one by another was thrown as the game was upcoming to end as it was increasing much difficulty, till the younger pharaoh finally told the phrases the invisible soldier was viewed, at that time the younger pharaoh hit the elder's ding by the chanted soldier announcing the end of the untouched war by the younger victory, but the elder felt with some unstable, uncomfortable thing in the game he felt with some cunning and trickery, he counted his brother's soldiers and he found them nine ,he stood up angrily and grab his brother's crown and yelled at him that it must be a reasonable explaining for that, the younger pushed him in his chest shouting that the game was up and he won.
 by the people's roars and semi-fighting and the two pharaohs' grabbing the two people began to fight with floods of blood full the ground and fights oll over the hall
. And from afar the elder pharaoh's minister and the younger's thinker were watching with a cunning smile ,the thinker belt down on the minister's ear on his chair and whispered "shall you give me what you have promised me,your majesty!?"
He smiled more and said "And more my faithful servant" and  repeated
"And more"!!!!.

 The southern kingdom and the northern kingdom were the two halves of the ancient Egypt, the capital of the first was Nakhb and the capital of the second was Boto, and that caused a lot of troubles like the weakness in defeating the enemies, some pharaoh of the northern united them in 4242 B.C. but they were separated again then pharaoh Mina from the southern, from Tiba (Oksor now) united them again in 3200 B.C. in one country,And by the way it's not a real story,Chess was invented in the 6th century in India.
