The Game of Chess 1

After three hundred years and endless moves in which the mastery of both contenders was manifested, Almanzor achieved checkmate. Alexius, annoyed, asked him for time to inform his people of the new world order. When the news spread around the world, the families of the contenders on both sides were happy, especially because thousands of combatants killed in combat would resume their lives, which would pass through other spaces and times as if nothing had happened. Pope Urban ll reacted energetically, reproaching Alexius 1 for the foolishness of his decision, refusing to admit the change in course of world history.

La partida de ajedrez 1

Después de trescientos años y un sinfín de jugadas en las que se manifestaba la maestría de ambos contendientes, Almanzor consiguió el jaque mate. Alejo, contrariado, le pidió tiempo para informar a su pueblo del nuevo orden del mundo. Cuando la noticia se extendió por el orbe, las familias de los contendientes de ambos bandos se alegraron, sobre todo porque miles de combatientes muertos en combate retomarian sus vidas, que transcurririan por otros espacios y tiempos como si nada hubiera ocurrido. El Papa Urbano ll reaccionó enérgicamente, reprochando a Alejó l la necedad de su decisión, negándose a admitir el cambio de rumbo de la historia del mundo.
