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

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

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.

Ed laid back in the grass staring at the clear sky silently. Al was sitting next to him, playing with blades of grass. The grass appeared to need to be cut but it was nice the way it was. 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." Came a cheerful voice and the two looked to see Mr. Hawkeye, now sometimes called Papa Hawk, standing over them and smiling cheerfully in the distance.
"Hey there, Papa Hawk." chimed Al and Ed smiled, giving a wave. Though the man argued with Mustang about pointless things, he was nice to the rest of them and took in the Elrics quickly, though Ed did not question it.
"You boys enjoying the scenery I see." he said and they laughed.
"Not as much as those guys, but yeah." Ed answered and sat up. "Where's everyone else at?" he asked, looking around. Mr. Hawkeye smiled a little.

"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

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

"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.

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. However, though he would treat them well for the night he was with them, or if he was in public with them, if they were to come to his door the next morning or send him a messenger, he would cruelly turn them away, like he would the alchemists and scientists. Though his women escorts were beautiful and often came from rich families, they
