"All right sir, We'll send you right through! Please hold for a minute! "
Hughes was making that minute count with prayers, He also Thanking god that he was speaking on the phone to the commanding officer..that is unless Roy was able to send his fire Alchemy through the telephone wires.., he ran a hand through his now sweating hair, Oh god..What was he going to say!?
10 minutes earlier..
"Ed! Come on kid! This ain't funny! " Hughes got down on his hands and knees and checked underneath Roy's bed, A thought coming to his mind about how a newly homed animal would sometimes take refuge under dark places for its own space and comfort, and when it was afraid of anxious...Hughes slapped his forehead, Ugh...Ed was NOT an animal! he was a boy! though..not like any little boy he's ever seen before in his life..
But back to the main subject..where the hell was he!? he's looked e
Feral Truth - Chapter 6Edward blinked watching from the sofa as Roy pulled on his blue military jacket, The one he met Roy in..What was he doing? He had got changed and cleaned himself up and was freshly changed into the uniform, Roy glanced his dark orbs down at the staring boy.More Like This
Was he going to be all right on his own?
Roy couldn't sooth over his worry twisted stomach, what if something happened to him!? what if he hurt himself or..even end up killing himself! Roy panicked thinking of all the loose wires that could be just laying around..and some of the cleaning products in the cupboards...It was like leaving a new puppy on its own for the first time, you worry about what you'll return home to...
Roy shook his head, Ed was NOT a new puppy..he was a really confused little boy, he's rather timid so he may not even approach somethings..he'll most likely keep himself at bay of anything that could look 'threatening' to him..
"Ed? I'm..Going to work okay? "
Ed tilted his head.
"Yeah..I'm not gonna be here..for

"Stanley had no trouble falling asleep, but morning came too quickly..."
Roy's eyes scanned down the paragraph as he read, he held the book in one hand and using his thumb to keep the pages spread and his other arm was around the blonde child who was seated comfortably on his lap, his small figure leaning into Roy's chest while his golden eyes gazed up at the book looking over the various words spread..He didn't get how Roy could pick up this 'story' from all those word scribbles but he liked it.
"He could hardly lift a spoon during breakfast.." Roy thought it'd be a good idea to read to Ed, With him listening to so many words and few times Roy would point at the word on the page and repeat it to make sure Ed registered it, he hoped it would help him with his speaking skills, Plus Ed seemed to like it, he looked so fascinated by what was going on even if he didn't understand half of it..
About 20 minutes into the new chapter Roy felt a sudden weight aga

Golden eyes fluttered open, his eyes blearily adjusting themselves to the outside of their eyelids before he yawned softly but it was muffled and a surrounding warmth hit his mouth as he breathed out so suddenly, Hmm..Everything around him was so soft and warm, And he could hear a faint thumping sound..
Edward shut his eyes listening to the gentle beating, this was another little flashback for him..How he would be snuggled up with the large wild mammal and listen to its heartbeat finding it as his own little lullaby, Edward then sat himself up and shook his head softly before his eyes could tear up, he missed mother fox so much..
Wriggling his way from Roy's arms he looked the man up and down, Roy was sat upright against the wall by the window where Ed was at last night, both of them had fell asleep by it, Edward looked down..this man was making so many sacrifices for his sake,..Ed leaned over gently butting his nose against the Colonel's

"Of course...You doubt your commanding officer? "
"What? course not! "
Roy chuckled placing down his pen, and adjusting the phone into his hand from his shoulder.
"So, all jokes aside..Have you managed to find any reports? Documents even? "
"I'm afraid not yet sir, Since we don't know his actual age, It'll be hard to find out exactly WHO he is and where he came from.."
"Well..my guess, He's..early teens? So 11-13 I think "
"All right..." The sound of a pen scratching was heard on the other end of the line "And what did you say his name was? "
"Just Ed? Nothing Else? "
"No...Just Ed.." The scratching was heard again. "I suppose this should do.."
"Better than nothing I suppose " Falman said sighing through his nose. "But if I may say Colonel, It'll be like a needle in a haystack..Many children do go missing back then and still now, it will take me a while to find something on the kid "
"Well, We have to try...Everyone has parents, Everyone has

Roy hummed softly, His bleary dark eyes blinking themselves awake as he covered his mouth politely to block a escaping yawn, Ah..It was nice to nap, Made him feel so refreshed after having to wake up so early and face the never ending pile of paperwork that mocked him each day with a new fresh layer of needing to be signed papers..
What made him snap from his sleepy daze was the light weight on his lap, He looked down at the curled up blonde boy..Oh yeah, He brought Ed home, letting a smile come to his face, his hand gently running through the boy's soft golden bangs and twiddling the cowlick between his fingers which caused a rumble coming from Ed's lips, imitating a purring sound while Roy toyed with his hair.
Something seemed a bit..off about Ed, Roy tilted his head to look at his napping face, He looked..pained? Not to mention the strange unhealthy looking tint on his cheeks, Roy brushed the back of his fingers across the boy's smooth cheeks

"Hey brat! Breakfast! " He called in before sliding the bowl in...but his brown eyes didn't see anything of the feral boy..he blinked glancing around unnervingly, Where the hell...? he didn't escape did he!? Aw man!
His thoughts were interrupted when he cried out, Ed had hid himself behind the door when it opened and used that to his advantage, He lunged at the guard sinking his teeth into the man's shoulder ripping through the fabric and piecing the man's unsuspecting skin forcefully, his clawed nails grabbing onto his chest and ripped into his uniform, the force of the pounce sent the man back, landing on his back painfully as he cried out, shooting pain going through him.

"Here for your appointment?... you're rather early, you must be eager~ " he chuckled adjusting his glasses on the bridge of his nose before pulling out the top drawer on his messy paper covered desk and picking up a ring of keys from the drawer, which gave a jingle as he fiddled them between his fingers.
"I must Warn you Roy, Please take extreme caution..he acts aggressive toward anyone who gets too close and if he begins acting up, Call me right away all right?" The Lieutenant explained, A few of the men who gone inside of the cell always came out with fresh scratches or even a bite, arriving at the sealed off ward, jamming his keys into the lock and opening it...
