Fanfiction: The Sweet Theft

Title: Drabble: The Sweet Theft
Fandom: FMA (manga version)
Character(s): Hohenheim, "Father"
Pairing(s): Hohenheim/Mechthild
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 140 (I cheated a bit, but the original part of this drabble is exactly 100 words long; the remaining 40 -- the framing dialogue -- are paraphrased from the manga.)
Warnings: None, really, but if you haven't read chapter 75, the context will elude you.
A/N: It occurred to me to wonder what those people whose names Hohenheim remembers meant to him before they were nothing but names. Here's one supposition, long-meditated but written at speed (where is the twenty-six-hour day I ordered?). Concrit welcomed with Chilean grapes. Crossposted from nebroadwe to Höllenbeck (i.e. hagaren_manga, fm_alchemist, fullservicefma, fma_het, fma_writers, and fma_fiction).
Dedication: For artemisrae, who is also considering Hohenheim's backstory.

"It must be inconvenient, being human," mused the homunculus.

He closes his eyes and taps his heels as he whispers in agony, [There's no place like home.] In the end, it takes twenty-eight years, three months, nine days, two hours, twenty-one minutes, and eighteen seconds for Edward to let go. 

AU movie. This is my first FMA fic, set in the supposition that they never met the gypsy girl and the movie didn't happen. Advice is appreciated!
