Why did he even bother staying up so late with his dusty alchemy books anymore? No matter how much he studied or how he longed to feel the exhilarating surge of energy flowing through his fingers again, it wouldn't return that part of him.
Not that he really cared. The sacrifice had been small compared to the overwhelming, almost painful joy of getting his brother back, and he'd gladly give it up for Al again...and more, if he had to. A hundred times over.
The 26-year-old reached up and pulled out his pony-tail, letting long, blond hair fall loose around his shoulders and flop in his bleary eyes. He stifled another yawn, his metal leg creaking in protest as he dragged his feet down the hallway; the anticipation of soft pillows and warm arms calling him to sleep.
A sharp cry met his ears just when he reached the bedroom door, and all thoughts of sleep fled his mind a

The moment Edward walked into the foyer, Mustang's servants went berserk. They ushered him into the sitting room, where the couch was a few feet away from a roaring fire. Maes and Jean had gone to help Gracia bring in the food, leaving Riza and Edward.
"Sit down, you must be exhausted." Ed blinked at the concern that touched the normally monotone clock's voice. Edward looked between her, the couch and the fire.
He stared into the fire and thought about the day's events, and found himself confused. This morning he'd been terrified of both fire and Mustang, but now he didn't know how to feel about them. Mustang had come for him, right when he'd needed someone. He had protected him from the wolves, and so had the fire. He could feel his cheeks turn faintly red, remembering how the beast had held him close, almost, no definitely protectively.

A train arrived at 11:17 AM, many passengers came out to visit and spend the seasons on pleasant eves and vacation, but only one passenger, a military soldier, was here on business. The soldier passed through crowds of joyful families, reuniting and sharing pleasant chatter. The soldier smiled, enjoying his walk past the happy folk, wishing that he had times like that to spend with his loved ones, but he wasn't here to play, he was here to speak with someone.

Fire was everywhere as far as Roy could see. The flames engulfed buildings and the people cowered within. Infernos leaped from building to building with little direction, consuming and burning all who came into its path. These fires were created by Roy.
The alchemist walked on through the town, trying to ignore the gunfire being exchanged outside of town, the sounds of buildings collapsing, the screams of the burning and dying. He had been given a mission, one that he would be court-martialed for if he did not complete it successfully.
The mission sickened him to his core; he was ill for hours the night after he had received his orders for the next day. He was to kill two doctors. Two Amestrian doctors because they did not discriminate who they treated.
In truth, he admired them, helping anyone they could. He wished he could do the same, but

He made his money from alchemy, and a special form of it at that. Since long ago, the mysterious art of flame alchemy had been lost. Many alchemists and scientists alike came to his mansion, begging for him to share his secrets. However, he rudely turned them all away.

I sat on top of my house, the breeze blowing my loosely tied up golden hair to the side. My right hand held a nail tightly as my left hammered it. Accidentally, I hit my right hand, which made pain spread across my entire body. In all honesty, it wasn't the worst pain I had ever felt but it still hurt and made my finger go bright red. I shouted the most abusive swear words I knew before managing to calm myself down. I wasn't used to feeling pain in my right arm, I had been without it for almost half of my life; it felt good to have it back but strange. It felt kind of like having braces then finally getting them off, the relief of having straight teeth. The result of patience.
I smiled as I stared down at the village, the view was amazing. There were so many stories I could tell just about this village, about mum. In the distance, I could see the ruins of my old house, beside the old blossom tree, where some memories remained in ashes. I don't regret burning it down,
