Theme #20, Courage

Title: Tactical Retreat (#20 Courage)
Rating: G
Character/Pairing: Sesshoumaru + Inutaisho, Inuyasha
Words:166
Summary: Sometimes it takes more courage to admit defeat.


“There will be times when the best course of action in a battle is to withdraw from the fight.”

“But won’t that seem cowardly?”

“It may seem so, but isn’t it better to walk away from a fight you can’t win than to be killed?”

“I guess so, but it still sounds cowardly.”

“My boy, sometimes it takes more courage to admit defeat than it does to plod on and be vanquished on the battlefield. You would do well to remember that.”

Many years later, Sesshoumaru stood across from his enemy, severely wounded. It was mere luck that Inuyasha had finally figured out how to conjure the Wind Scar, but the effects were devastating, even when wielded by someone as bumbling as his half-brother. Nearly blinded by Sesshoumaru’s poison, the fool was still trying to continue the fight.

Sesshoumaru ignored his sibling’s accusations that he was running away, preferring to withdraw and heal instead of being humiliated by the possibility of defeat by a lowly half-breed.
