Strategies (Aladdin and Abu gen)

Title: Strategies
Fandom: Disney's Aladdin
Length: 91 words
Prompt: Three-Sentence Fic-a-thon: Disney's Aladdin, Abu & the Carpet, chess
Pairing: Aladdin and Abu gen
Other: n/a

Excerpt: With a hand cupped around his mouth for secrecy, he added, "I can't beat Carpet either."

Carpet always won at chess; Abu had once observed that the object had a great poker face, which had caused Aladdin to point out (once he'd decoded the monkey's words) that they weren't playing poker, and chess was more about strategy than secrecy, wasn't it?

"Don't be embarrassed, little guy," he said, clapping his friend on the back, and leaning in close. With a hand cupped around his mouth for secrecy, he added, "I can't beat Carpet either" (and Abu thought, well, that's not really a surprise, but appreciated the cheering-up effort).
