The Handmaid would have considered her words a mistake if she had truly believed that they had caused him to change his mind about anything. She knew her fate from beginning to end. Doc Scratch had made sure of that.

Besides, her death wasn’t coming any time soon. Nothing she said or didn’t say would change that fact. If her words had impact it would mean she controlled something.

She didn’t.

She has to fight the urge to crush one of the chess pieces under her shoe. She can already hear the satisfying crunch it would make, see the irritated look on Caliborn’s face, hear the scathing insults he hoped would harm her.

But what good would that do?

“A game,” she repeated, venom in her voice. It was a lot better than what they had been doing, maybe.

Actually, she probably would have preferred breaking a chair over his head as opposed to playing a boring, strategical game of chess.
