Rating: This is pretty tame, so G, I guess, only...not. Yeah. Uh...I dunno, A for Al!Angst?
Summary: Al dreams.
When he sleeps, he can almost remember.
He's not sure why he needs sleep, but he does.
But Alphonse Elric doesn't question it, not really. It's one of the few things that makes him feel human.

And then he wakes.
And does not remember.
