Character/Pairing: Sesshoumaru + Inutaisho
Summary: Every year he gets the same answer.
Every year he stands on the shore and holds a mental conversation with his father. There were times in the past that he’d yell and rage while pacing back and forth, his fists held tight at his sides while arguing that a human woman and her unborn child hadn’t been worth dying for. Other times he speaks quietly, telling his father what had happened during the year, of territories and treaties, his hands gesturing every so often to emphasize a point. There are even years where he asks for advice, hoping for something, anything, even the cryptically delivered pieces of wisdom his father had been so fond of doling out.
Yet year after year, all Sesshoumaru ever hears for a reply are the crashing sounds of the waves pounding the shore.
