If Laila was being honest with herself her initial instinct was to get the heck out of there however knowing Rhee she would probably chase her down and tackle her to the ground. “ instincts say I am defenseless and I need a weapon, but since I don’t have one, I need to think of a maneuver to distract the enemy so I can either make a strike to my advantage or flee to safety so I can come up with a plan to defeat them.” It was the basic battle strategies that were taught at the Academy, a discipline all officers were required to take. Thanks to Rhee, until now Laila had never really needed to reference this training.

“Right,” Rhee said. “You need to outsmart your opponent. Use others things to your advantage and create an opportunity to shift things in your favour. But what if retreat isn’t an option and you are faced with an overwhelming opponent. What do you do then?”


Laila had no idea what Rhee wanted from her, however she knew enough to try to tell her what she thought she wanted to hear based on conversations shed over heard from her father, “Um…I guess it becomes crucial to employ strategic thinking and resourcefulness to increase your chances of success.” She paused to think before she continued, “ do that one should probably assess the situation thoroughly.

Rhee looked unimpressed and took a step closer to Laila. “Well that’s a bunch of textbook BS. It means nothing in this moment. It’s an idea, not a plan.” A frustrated look swept across her face and Rhee eyed the younger woman. “Okay. I’m your opponent and I’m about to attack you, what do you do? You have exactly the resources you have right now in this moment.”
