  • Short Stories – Simon Whaley
    It would keep me awake at night although I must have slept at some point because Esther would often visit me in my dreams Bleary eyed and with a fuzzy head I d wandered down to the Leaky Tap and ordered mine and Jock s usual tipple We don t normally see you here on a Thursday said Harry Thursday It s Friday surely I m afraid it s definitely Thursday Angus No wonder you can t beat Jock if you can t remember what day of the week it is Stand more chance of winning today then don t I Ah well just give me my usual then please Perhaps I can think of a way to beat Jock whilst I sup it He always wins doesn t he I nodded to Harry as I supped my pint Giving me restless nights now it is My brains so fuddled I can t keep track of what day of the week it is Never beat him like that will I Harry looked up and down the pub and then waved his head towards the end of the bar where it was quieter Intrigued I followed him down there You know he cheats don t you Who Jock Jock Never He does Angus I ve seen him do it But how His picks his letters whilst you re adding his new points to his score doesn t he Yeah Takes me ages sometimes I have to concentrate so hard Never liked numbers me Sometimes I take so long he s already thought of his next word before I ve finished adding his points and started thinking about my turn That s how he does it Whilst you re busy adding up numbers you don t see him choose his letters If he picks something he doesn t like like an X or a Q he puts it back and chooses another He doesn t He does Angus Think about it Do you always get the Q s As I drank my pint I began to think back and realised it was true The only way that could happen was if Jock was cheating The canny little blighter Harry Quite clever really when you think about it Here you don t fancy helping me get my own back do you Harry winked at me Angus it would be a pleasure Our game continued as normal Jock kept getting the words on the high scoring squares whilst I fumbled about with the K s and M s and X s His score stood at 219 whilst mine was struggling at 114 There was one final letter resting in his tray and I still had the full quota of 7 in mine To anyone passing who happened to see them they would probably have reacted in the same way Harry did earlier My tray looked a mess I had an A I O J K Q and an S Can t you go Jock enquired looking smug I m still looking I tried to claim knowing it would wind him up Ah come on Angus You ve been looking for 15 minutes now If you haven t found a space you never will Got it I exclaimed Jock looked relieved almost convinced he d be able to get his final letter out and win the game any minute now One by one though I placed my letters on the board around an E Jock had placed there earlier K A Q I J O E S Jock spelt out loud What kind of word is that Kaqijoes I confirmed is a Scottish word Haven t you heard of it I ve not heard of it because is doesn t exist he declared Right on cue as we d agreed Harry came over to collect our empty glasses and replace them with the next round Harry look at what Angus has put down here Kaqi Kaqi Kaq I can t even pronounce it Harry took one look at the word Oh I see Kaqijoes Yes I know it Well done Angus What You ve heard of this word Jock enquired incredulously Yes it s an old Scottish word that actually comes from three individual words KA means spirit or soul QI means an individual s life force and JO is the Scots word for loved one The ES on the end is the plural spelling Kaqijoles means the spirit or soul of a loved one s life forces Well done Angus that s a good one What does it do to your score Well I never Jock declared Knowing that it would take me too long Harry picked up the score pad and then started moving the letters of my word to count up the score So that s 28 you ve got in total on a double word score which makes it 56 You ve used all 7 of your letters haven t you so that gives you a 50 point bonus bring your total to 106 Add that to your score of 114 and you ve now got a total of 220 against Jock s 219 And now that you put all your letters down you ve won You ve beaten Jock by 1 point But that s not possible spluttered Jock as he stood up We ll have a rematch next week he shouted as he left the pub Harry winked at me I don t think he ll be cheating again Perhaps next time you can suggest that he does the scoring I nodded in agreement and picked up my fresh pint Esther had been right after all The best Scrabble games are when both minds think alike It s just that I had to think like a cheat to beat a cheat As for Kaqijoes it isn t a real word it s just the amalgamation of Esther s favourite two letter words perfect for getting rid of those awkward
