Mystified

I was playing chess with a friend this afternoon, on the clock, and my time was running out.  I looked up from the board, rubbed my eyes, sighed, said finger fuck to myself, and looked back down at the board, then discovered I had forced checkmate in five moves.

I won the game before the flag fell.  I’m still wondering where those moves came from and why I saw them.
