Chapter: [ 1 ]
Secrets, Thoughts, and a Missing Winry
“Thank you!” Winry shouted back at the lady. When she left the hospital, she didn’t want to go back just yet, so she stopped at a small café and drank a cup of tea. When she finished, she still didn’t want to go back, so she took the long way back through the park. When she arrived, she sat down on the bench and thought back of everything that happened. Why couldn’t she get him out of her mind now? It’s as if he was ingrained into her memories and thoughts.
“Okay, so I sort of kissed him, is it really that big of a deal?” She thought out loud.
Yeah, you kissed a military man who was way older than you.
Winry sighed and laid her head back against the bench. “Well, it’s not like I begged for him to.”
Well you let him go along with it. Besides, what will Ed think when he-
Ed. So, is that why she didn’t want to go back? She never thought about it until now, but what would he do if he found out about what happened at the hospital? Would he be angry? Upset? Happy? Jealous?
Hm. Actually, she liked the thought of him being jealous for her.. The thought of him fighting someone over her.. She blushed furiously.
“Woah, wait, why should I care what Ed thinks about this? He wouldn’t get jealous over me! And I don’t really care what he thinks about this!” She said, getting up. For a second, she let the breeze hit
her heated body, cooling her down a bit. It feels really good, She thought. Winry always admired the wind. Sometimes, it felt like every time a breeze hit her, it was as if just that one breeze disburdened all of her worries away. Sometimes, she wished that could really happen. Could you do that with alchemy? Doubt it, but she’d remember to ask Ed about it later. She quickly glanced at her watch and slightly gasped.
“Oh no, I better get going.”
“Ed, Al, I’m back!” It was 11:46PM, and Winry busted into the room, panting heavily. When she entered, she found Ed and Al sitting on the couch. Al had his hands rested on his knees while Ed had is hands to
his face, fingers entwined. Al looked up at her and gasped, causing Ed to look up as well. You couldn’t tell by the way he was sitting, but she could very easily read Ed eyes, and he was pissed off.
“Winry! You came back! We were so worried about you!” Al said, jumping up from the couch.
“Winry, why are you back so late?” Ed murmured. His eyes were shut tightly.
“I’m sorry, I was really exhausted and decided to stay for a bit longer.” Winry smiled.
“Do you have any idea what time it is? Did it really take you that long to relax!” Ed shouted when he shot up from the couch.
“Oh, calm down, Ed. Like Jean said, I needed some more time to relax.” Ed looked at her as if she grew another head out of her neck. “Yeah, but all day? ” Ed yelled at her even louder. He really looked furious. “Do you have any idea how dangerous it is to be alone at night? Especially for a girl! Winry, do you know-“ Winry cut him off.
“Of course I know Ed! Do you really think I’m stupid?”
“Well, I’m beginning to!” Ed snapped her. Winry flushed with anger.
“Me? What about you! Going off into dangerous missions and ruining my precious automail as if it were some toy!” Ed groaned and put his hand to his forehead.
“Winry, don’t start that again, we already-“
“I’ll say whatever I want, Edward Elric.” Winry snapped right back at Ed. Ed grunted and looked away. Winry just glared at him furiously; she looked as if she was about to whack him with her wrench any minute now. Ed kept his eyes towards the floor.
“I have a feeling you’re keeping something from us, Winry.” Winry jumped slightly. Crap, he was on to her.
“What? What would I keep from you guys?” She pretended to be clueless.
“You know what I’m talking about, did something happen on your way back? Or did something happen at the hospital?” He said, gripping on to her shoulders tightly. Winry didn’t notice until now, but he knew her a lot better then she thought he did.
She let out an exasperated sigh and slapped his hands away.
“Idiot! Do you really think I’d keep something from you guys? You’re the one who keeps secrets around here, Ed, not me!” And with that, Ed shut his mouth and let her go back into her room. She slammed the door shut and locked it, hearing no sound from the room whatsoever. Alphonse sighed.
“What?” Ed growled at him.
“Brother, sometimes you can be such a jerk.” Alphonse got up and quietly walks out the room, leaving a shocked, open-mouthed Ed. Did Al just call him a jerk?
“Al? Al! Come back! It’s not like I was trying to be! I just wanted to know what was up with her! She started it, not me! Al!” After realizing Al wasn’t coming back, Ed slapped himself in the forehead and fell back to his bed, grunting something like ‘Why me?’ and tried to stay awake until Al returned.
It was dark and quiet in the room; the window was left open, making it quite breezy in there. Al quietly knocked on the door to get a quick peek at Winry, to see if she was all right.
“Winry? Winry, you awake?” Al stepped in and opened the door all the way, letting the hallway light shine in throughout the whole room. He gasped.
“Uh-oh..” Al whispered to himself. He walked towards the bed to find it untouched, along with her dinner. Winry’s purse, coat, and pillow were gone and she had left the water in the bathroom running just a little bit. Ah, I see. Winry left the water running so we could think that she was still here. Alphonse sighed. So, I see you really are keeping something from us, but.. what is it? He turned off
the water and left the room, heading back to his own.
“Brother, Brother!” Al yelled, busting into the room. Ed jumped up. He looked like he had been asleep for quite a while, Al could tell by how messed up his hair was and how drenched the pillow was.
“What Al, what is!” Ed jumped out of bed and walked toward him, looking worried.
“Well, ah, you see..” Al stopped for a minute. He didn’t want to get Winry in trouble, but then again, he was concerned for her. He knew how dangerous it could be out there, and he knew how many perverts there were now a days. So, what should he do?
“Oi, Al, you okay? What is it?” Ed said. Al stood there for another moment of silence, and after a while, turned around and headed towards the door.
“I’m going out, don’t expect me back soon,” Al mumbled. He made up an excuse.
“Huh? Em.. Alright, but were would you go at this time of night, Al?”
“I.. just want to walk around for a bit, that’s all.”
Al quickly left the room when Ed opened his mouth to respond. Ed looked at the door confused, scratching his head, and then shrugged. He let out a huge yawn and then fell back into his bed, admiring the comfort of it. Sooner or later, he fell into a deep sleep.
Idiot! How could he? So I did lie about keeping something from him, but he keeps secrets from me all the time! It’s.. It’s just not fair. Winry was quickly walking to the hospital; Her nose was red and her eyes were red and puffy from crying. He was such a jerk! Never tells me anything or what goes on in his life, yet he expects me to tell him one of my secrets? How dare he!
When Winry arrived in front of the hospital, she sniffed really quickly and fixed herself up, chance to running her hair through her fingers and waiting for the color in her face to go away. She quickly patted her shirt and skirt, removing any wrinkles from it, and then walked into the hospital, straight to the elevator. One of the nurses stopped her. Winry recognized her quickly; She was the nurse that helped Jean. The nurse must’ve recognized her as well, since she came over by Winry and greeted her.
“Oh, do you need help, miss? Don’t you need a room number?” She asked, smiling politely. Winry did the same.
“No thank you, I already know where the room is.” She walked into the elevator and went up with a huge smile on her face.
When she got off, she quickly paced to Havoc’s room. She couldn’t wait to see him. He was so handsome. She couldn’t really tell since he was in his bed, and she doesn’t remember seeing him around much, but he looked like he was about 6 feet tall. His hair was brown but then when it came up to his bangs, they were blonde. She admired his hair so much; it was so unique! And his eyes, oh how she loved his eyes.
His eyes were the same color as hers, but they weren’t as bright as hers. They looked more like.. like the color of the ocean at night time. Winry loved the ocean. People say her eyes look like the ocean too, but hers were more like the ocean during the daytime. Hm, that sounds romantic; She was the day, he was the night. She blushed at the thought of that. She softly knocked at the door
and slightly opened it.
“Jean?” She whispered. She opened the door a bit more. “Jean,” She whispered again.
She opened the door even wider and came in to find him sleeping peacefully. He was sitting up, his right had rested on his stomach and the other above his head, which was facing the window to his right. She walked slowly towards his bed, blushing. She carefully took a seat next to him and watched him. He looked so beautiful.. The way the moonlight shined upon him, it was simply beautiful. She lifted her hand and brushed away the bangs out of his face. Then she slowly traced his jaw line with her fingers, bringing them down
slowly. He’s quite strong, she thought as she smoothed her hand over his chest. Winry quickly took her hand away when she heard a quiet moan from Havoc. He lazily opened his eyes, bringing his hand to his hair. He looked a little to the left and noticed Winry was sitting on his bed, watching him. She blushed even more.
“Winry? What are you doing here?” He asked, rubbing his eyes.
“Oh, I’m sorry Jean, but I just couldn’t sleep, I-“
“Edward troubles, huh.” Havoc cut her off.
“Erm.. well.. haha, yes.” Winry mumbled.
Havoc looked at his clock. “Geez, didn’t expect you to come at 1AM.” He said, yawning loudly. She chuckled, looking at him with an apologetic face.
“Yeah, I’m really sorry if I disturbed you. I just.. I..” Winry blushed furiously. She felt so embarrassed; really, who would come busting into someone’s room at 1 in the morning just for your own problems, especially when you just met them!
“I really wanted to see you.” She murmured, looking down towards the floor. Her cheeks were bright red. Havoc was absolutely shocked; he didn’t know what to say. Winry kept her eyes towards the floor,
trying to cool her cheeks down a bit. It really didn’t help though when Havoc slowly leaned in towards her and softly whispered in her ear.
“I wanted to see you, too.” He said, huskily. Winry was blushing like crazy. He always made her blush!
He leaned in, closed his eyes, and kissed her. It wasn’t a passionate, lust kind of kiss; it was just a sweet, simple kiss. She loved it.
“Jean..” She whispered and hugged him. He brought his arms around her waist and slowly pulled her down with him. After getting comfortable, he started to whisper sweet nothings in her ear.
“I don’t want you to leave,” He whispered in her ear. “Stay with me, please.”
“I never said I was leaving.” She murmured and quickly fell asleep in his arms. Havoc smiled kindly at her and then closed his eyes, nuzzling is nose into her hair. Her hair was so beautiful; it was kept tidy into a high ponytail and always shone brightly, but right now she had it down. It was spread all over the bed and it almost looked like a lake, thanks to the reflection of the moon. He held onto her tighter and sooner or later, he fell asleep as well.
Al was heading towards his room, walking quite fast; it was now 1:46AM, and he still couldn’t find Winry. He had no choice but to tell his brother, this time she could really be in danger.
Al opened the door and walked into his brother’s room, shaking him to get up.
“Brother. Brother. Brother!” Ed jumped up and nearly hit Al.
“Geez Al, what is it this time?” He said, slowly laying back down.
“Brother, get up! Winry’s missing!” Ed shot back up and looked at Al with worried eyes.
“What? She’s missing? Where is she?” He said, yelling loudly at Al.
“Well, if I knew that, she wouldn’t be missing now, would she!” Ed jumped out of bed and changed quickly, not even worried about putting up his hair. He grabbed his coat and ran out the door.
“Come on, Al!” He shouted and as Al caught up, they both began looking
frantically for Winry.
