the laughing manNow my dear children let's start the tale,
And cause I so much love you u better be aware,
The laughing man story is not a fairy tale,
The ones with weak hearts better not to hear,
The laughing man story is what I am going to share,
Come close my children let's begin the tale,
In a far far land we don't speak the name,
A little boy was born for a happy sweet pair,
But life most of the time is not generously fair,
The small little boy won't stop his awful creepy glare,
The boy now grown to be a son of a year,
But how hard his parents tried his smile was never to appear,
Till one night the child started laughing,
His parents rushed to him stood near panting,
Watching with amusement his laugh was close to chanting,
Excited with the laughter they didn't see the smoke,
It was coming slowly slithering turning into fog,
The father gave a cough and wonder about the smell,
The mother gave a shriek and thought "OH MY, the candle it fell?"
The family was standing looking very sad,
The house was b

Chapter 6: Secrets
"I wonder what will happen when they find out... I'd lose my certification, that's for sure... But...they'd probably lock me up too. To keep me in their net."
"I can't go back to that. I don't want to be locked up again."
Ed sat there in that alley for a long time. After all the waves of tears were gone, he looked at his watch that told him it was almost 3am.
He looked at the engraving he carved all those years ago. Was there any point now? What's the point in looking for the Philosophers Stone when he couldn't even use it.
Ed had spent his 16th birthday in a cold cell and bound with chains to an even colder wall. He couldn't even enjoy his cake that Al bought for him. The only t

Chapter 10: Changes
A/N: I know you're all thinking 'Huh? Isn't this chapter supposed to be called 'Runaway'???' .... and I just have this quick note to tell you that I've changed the name of the chapter to 'Changes' since it suits the subject matter in this chapter more than the other name.
When Ed unlocked the hotel room door, he braced himself for the assault of questions that he knew Al would badger him with.
However, even after he opened the door and poked his head into the room, Al remained sitting on the floor up against the far wall.
Al looked up from the book he was reading.
"Oh, Brother! You're back!"
He got to his feet and clomped over to Ed.
Ed closed and locked the door behind him.
"I was worried," Al continued, following after Ed as he walked over to the beds and threw himself onto it, "I wondered where you went last night and I was going to go look for you, but I decided to wait instead. And then someone from the military

Chapter 5: Loss
"Are you going to be ok, Brother?" Al asked.
Ed shook his head.
"I've got no idea. I'm too tired to think righ "
Al watched as Ed's eyes drooped and his head flop to the side.
"Let him sleep," Adèle said, "The next few weeks are going to be hell for him."
In the end, Ed was categorized as a Middle-High Mind vampire. Which meant, to Al's relief, that Ed was able to go free.
However, there was certain safety measures that Ed had to take into account. For one, Ed couldn't have any direct skin contact with the sun. Even the smallest ray of sunlight, even just for a few seconds was enough to give Ed a severe burn. Ed also had to be very careful

"That's what you get for not wearing proper winter clothes, brother."
"Shad-up Al..." Ed groaned as he and his brother, Al crunched through the several foot deep snow on their way to the Central Headquarters.
the night before
"Brother!" Al came rushing into the hotel room with a newspaper in hand.
"What?" Ed looked up from his work of polishing his automail arm.
"They say it's supposed to snow tonight!"
"So?" Ed went back to polishing his arm.
"Aren't you even a little excited?" Even if it couldn't be se
