The Chess Board
When I was nine, I wanted nothing more than to learn how to play chess. This desire developed after I saw children playing the game on a television show. Unfortunately, my attempts to learn from my relatives were futile, for none of them knew how to play. Furthermore, we didn't have a chess set at home. Asking for a chess set as a gift was not an option, for I knew that pursuing pleasures was not as crucial as buying food or paying bills. However, I was not deterred by these obstacles.
