The King had arranged a meeting that evening. However, he noticed no one had shown up, which was highly unusual. The Bishops walked in finally with frantic looks on their faces. The King asked, "What is going on? Where is everyone?"
One of the Bishops answered, "Everyone is dead! The Queen was brutally assasinated, the Rooks had their throats slit from behind, the Knights were trapped in a corner and shot, and the Pawns were lined up and decaptiated!"
Shocked and angered, the King shouted, "Damn it! It's like we've been made the victims of someone's twisted game of chess!"

Haha! It was kind of obvious where this was leading but it was still an entertaining piece of writing!

Like this but think that "someone's twisted game" might have sufficed?

I wasn't very confident with this drabble when I finished it, but I am glad it turns out that it was better than I thought it was at first. Thanks to you all for your kind comments! By the way, to Tony, I think you are right, since the change makes it more concise and less awkward at the end.
