It was really cold that day, tons of snow falling from the sky. She gazed around and it looked as if Central had been covered in a giant white blanket. Winry was waiting in front of Central Headquarters and sat on the steps until Ed and Al came out of the library. She really enjoyed the view of Central, but it really pissed her off when they made her wait, especially since she had came all the way from Risembool just to see them. Ugh, boys. Could they be anymore frustrating?
She put on her scarf even tighter as a cold breeze flew by, sending chills throughout her entire body.
“Jeez, I’m about to go drag them out that damn library if they keep me waiting any longer, it’s freezing out here!” She said, kicking some snow off of her boots. As she walked down the steps, Winry began to hear footsteps shuffling towards her. She turned around, smiling brightly. Ed always loved her smiles. Well, she wasn’t exactly sure about that, but that’s what Al told her.
“Cheh! It’s about time you guys finished, I was getting-“
She stopped talking when she realized that it wasn’t Ed, nor was it Al. The man in the military uniform froze and stared at her, she could feel his glare. Winry turned around to see who it was and stopped. They both looked up and when their eyes met each other, they both blushed. She opened her mouth, but then closed it again. Winry was trying to apologize, but couldn’t find the right words to say. It was as if his gaze mesmerized her; he was so handsome.
Havoc thought she was gorgeous, the way her hair blew in the wind and how her cheeks were a little pink. The snow all around them really brought out her bright blue eyes, too. He tried to break the moment of silence, but he didn’t really know what to say.
“Hi, I’m Jean Havoc.” He said, taking his hand out of his pocket. He smiled politely at her.
“Hello, I’m Winry, Winry Rockbell.” She said. They shook hands and both smiled at each other.
“Are you looking for Edward and Alphonse Elric, ma’am?” He asked, placing his hand back into his pocket.
“Ah, yes! Do you happen to know if they are out of the library by now? They were doing research and-“
“Oi, Winry!” She looked behind Havoc and saw Ed, waving at her. Winry blushed and she formed a huge smile.
“Ed! You finally came out!” She said, giggling. Winry quickly walked towards Ed and pounced, hugging him tightly. Ed blushed furiously. Havoc stood there and watched them, a hint of disappointment in his smile. He turned around and took out a cigarette.
“Hey, what’s up with the sudden cheerfulness?” Ed said, smiling sheepishly.
“Well, wouldn’t you be happy too if you finally saw your best friend whom you haven’t seen for months?” They both laughed and began to walk inside headquarters.
“Let’s get Al and then we’ll go get something to eat, I’m starving.”
“When aren’t you?” Winry said sarcastically. They both chuckled and as they opened the door, Winry suddenly stopped and turned around.
“Oh, that’s right!” She walked towards Havoc and tapped his shoulder to get his attention. He didn’t turn around.
“Thank you, Mr. Havoc. It was nice meeting you.” She quickly turned around and walked back towards Ed, blushing.
“It was nice to meet you, too.” Havoc murmured as he lit his cigarette.
He would’ve liked to get to know her better, but he realized she was too young for him. She also seemed like she already had her eyes set on someone else. He’d always remember her though, and always remember the frozen moment at first sight.
