Title: The Desert Ague (2/?)
Rating: T for innuendo/language
Prompt: I would like some hurt/comfort with Ed in Creta or some other country in the east. Het please, but nothing explicit.....I'm looking for hurt/comfort with some sexy twists. Don't take yourself too seriously, if you can put in a few bits of comedy, I'd love it, but it's OK if you want to go with the more angst laden h/c.

Summary: When Ed attempts to make the trek to Xing to attend Ling's coronation as emperor, things go disastrously wrong. Turns out it really is a bad idea to cross the desert with automail. Good thing Winry tagged along, both to keep him alive and to call him ten kinds of idiot for having set out in the first place.
"And how exactly were you feeling once you got to Xerxes?" she asked him, her eyes daring him to lie to her.
