Chapter Thirteen: Sharing the Past
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.
"-ward, are you alright?" Golden eyes blinked rapidly as he snapped out of his thoughts. He smiled do

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

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

Chapter 25- Babysitting Little Flame
Havoc stared silently at the child sitting on his couch wearily. Mustang owed him big for this little "mission" he has just been issued. Outside it was raining and it was only a few moments ago that his commanding officer had come banging on his subordinate's apartment door. Upon answering, the blonde smoker had a grinning three year old and an over night bag full of junk shoved at him all at once as Mustang declared he and Riza needed some alone time and thanks for watching the kid. "Havoc-oji…" Havoc looked at the child who was staring back up at him with innocent amber eyes.
"What Lee?" he asked with a sigh. Lee smiled brightly at the older man.
"Do you have ice cream?" he asked. Havoc stared at the boy silently. He was a solider, not a babysitter. What the hell was Mustang thinking, dropping the brat off on him! He sighed and shook his head.
"No I don't have any ice cream." he answered and looked over at the bag that he had tossed to the side at

'Either stand here like an idiot and get ripped apart, or run down this path, hope to outrun the pack, and pray I can find help...' He glanced around once more as the pack began closing ranks and spun around, sprinting away from them.
Even though he tripped over gnarled roots and branches ripped at his brown coat, he kept going. He could just see a house on the horizon. 'Finally.' He pushed himself to go faster. Edward was panting with exhaustion by the time he reached the large, closed gates. He tried to slow to a stop before the gates, but failed to. Instead, he put his arms in front of him to brace himself against the metal.
"Anyone here? Hello?" Edward shouted, rattling the gates. He did not want to trespass on somebody's land, however, when he looked behind himself, his

"The colonel hasn't been here for a week now." Said Fuery knowingly when Ed and Winry had arrived at the office to see how things were going. Winry hadn't had to baby-sit Lee for a week now so she had come along with Ed to see what was going on and how everyone was doing. Roy had looked lazily over at the group.
"She's on vacation so don't take anything personal, Winry." He informed as he twirled a pen between his fingers. Winry blushed slightly.
"I wasn't. I just wanted to see how Lee was is all." She said and smiled slightly when Ed glared at the General. "Anyway, since everything is ok, Ed is going to take me out, so I was hoping you could give him a day off." She said brightly. Roy raised an eyebrow at the pair and shrugged carelessly.
"I don't care. Who am I to cancel Fullmetal's first date?" Ed glared at him.
"It's not a date!"
"It's a shopping trip." Said Winry finished, managing to be the calmer one of the pair. Roy looked between the two

"Damn it, Winry!" Ed hissed as he clung to his right foot, hopping around. "Why did you have to bring so much shit with you?" Said lemon blonde stuck her head out from her workshop, scowling.
"It's not shit! It's my livelihood! You know I need it both for my business /and/ for your arm and leg." Edward glanced away from her bright blue eyes and stared at his automail hand, flexing it. Winry saw the look in his eyes and was about to go to him when a soft clanging was heard coming in from the kitchen.
"Brother?" Edward's head snapped up at the echoey sound of his little brother's voice. Seeing Al standing there in the doorway, Edward was taken back a few years to the accident that had cost them so much.
Edward and Alphonse had been traveling home in their relatively new 'crank-to-start' car with their mother driving. Ed couldn't remember exactly what happened, all he kne

Roy Mustang lived in an enormous estate filled with many servants. He was rich and his mansion was decorated in only the finest of furniture. 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.
The young Mustang held many parties at his estate and his good looks brought him many admirers. With his ebony black hair, deep azure eyes, and fall and fit physique, women of all ages fawned over him.

Though his women escorts were beautiful and often came from rich families, they

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.

You groaned and sat back on the couch; your boyfriend Ed, was currently taking a nap on your lap. Sure he was cute, adorable as fuck actually, but you really just wanted to spend some time with him and have actual conversations. You pulled your fingers through his long hair and smiled; he had the softest hair, despite being both a guy, and a crazy hyperactive teen. No matter how many times he would complain, you would always play with his hair, putting in ponytails, and different kinds of braids. One time, you managed to give him pigtails and dress him in your pajamas; it was the cutest thing you had ever seen. You picked up a strand of his hair and slowly inhaled; it smelled like raspberries, meaning that he was using your shampoo. Stifling a giggle, you continued stroking his head.
"Ngn...I won't drink it..." Ed softly growled in his sleep and you chuckled.

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,

It reminded them of home, as Winry fondly pointed out earlier. Now she was seen a little in the distance playing with Lee, Elysia, and Black Hayate. "G'afternoon boys."

Almost every person who lived in Lior was there, with pitchforks, bats, and angry faces, but it wasn't just the townspeople, some of the followers were confused about Cornello's words.

She'd taken it to heart. When dinner burned, when her hands were raw from doing laundry, when she accidentally broke a plate---a Hawkeye never cries. It became a mantra.
