It never pays to snoop, and one mother with an overactive imagination learned that the hard way, much to the delight of the Internet. The 35-year-old mom noticed a note on the desk of her boyfriend of a year, and it had her suspecting him of plotting to murder her seven-year-old son. She posted to Reddit what she found, and along with getting an answer, she got pretty humiliated. Her post reads:
"I've raised my 7 year old son as a single mother. But last year, I started dating and met my current boyfriend. He's perfect and is great with kids and we've even been flirting with the possibility of marriage recently.
That was until last week, I discovered some disturbing writing by his desk. I don't know what it means and I'm getting really paranoid. I stole it from his desk. It says:
'Kill the KID d4 Nf6 c4 g6 Nc3 Bg7 e4 d6 Nf3 0-0 Be2 e5'
I have no idea what these numbers/letters mean and I'm really worried about the title that says 'Kill the KID.'
I've got a really overactive imagination, but I'm wondering if those numbers/letters are co-ordinates of previous children he's killed or something sick like that. I don't know, please just tell me I’m paranoid. I really like him and don't know why he would write this.
tl;dr boyfriend has weird writing about killing what I assume is my kid."

Well good news for the mom - her boyfriend is not planning to murder her son. Instead, he is just a fan of chess. A commenter explained, "Kill the KID is a chess book. KID stands for the King's Indian Defense. The 'coordinates' are chess notation. The dude isn't planning on killing your kids lmao."
Twitter had a field day with the post.
Miss, I'm sorry to tell you. Your boyfriend... "plays chess". Based on the evidence we've found, he's a serious "chess player". This isn't a casual thing. We don't know for sure, but odds are he meets with other "players" in a "chess club" where they seek to "check mate". https://t.co/LI7TIAurtt— Hasufin Heltain (@Hasufin) August 7, 2018
Though I like the idea that he'd write out his secret murder plans in a complex code, and than spell out the title in plain text.— Simplicio (@simplicio823) August 6, 2018
"I was okay when I thought he wanted to kill children, but CHESS ? No way, we broke up."— Taxalot (@taxalot) August 8, 2018
Was his name Bobby Fisher?— Marmaduke Jinks 🏴 (@marmadukejinks9) August 7, 2018
I kind of want to advise the guy now to reevaluate this relationship. Imagine what else she might come up with in the future.— Euqinomist (@Euqinomist) August 7, 2018
No word how the boyfriend took it when he learned his potential fiancee suspecting him of being a murderer.
