A/N: Idea came to me after reading one of velvet_mace’s posts about AU’s & OOC’s. I’m pretty much doing this series to see if I can pull off writing some OOC homunculi while having a good story plot. I got the idea for the title when the song “Mr. Brightside” by The Killers was stuck in my head, and it just sort of clicked, thus that’s how the title came to be.
Pairing: Implied Envy/Wrath
Genre: Angst, Possible Yaoi in later chapters, Shounen Ai in this chapter
Warning[s]: END OF SERIES [possibly] Envy being nice!!
“What do you mean you “can’t keep doing this”?!” Cried out the younger of two homunculi who were standing in a dark, secluded room in the large mansion that belonged to Dante.
“I don’t know, I, I just… every time I see a human die at the hands of one of us, it feels like I’m dying a little bit inside with them. I can’t keep doing this, it’s killing me…” The older said sadly as he stared out the lone window at the dark, raining sky.
“But I can’t live without you here!” Shouted the younger as he began to sob, hugging the older tightly around the waist.
“Do you… want to come with me? It’ll be hard, though. The others will come looking for us, and I’m sure they won’t stop until they find us.” The older looked down at the younger, reassuringly rubbing his head.
“Yes, of course I do! I don’t care if it will be hard, I want to go everywhere with you! I can’t bear being separated from you!” The younger pressed his face against the elder’s chest as he sobbed, feeling slightly happier when he felt the older homunculus’ arms wrap tightly around him. “But… how are we going to escape? It’s not like we can get out unnoticed, and even if we did, where would we go?”
“Don’t worry, I have a plan…”
“Will it work?”
“I’m positive it will work.”
“What have you two been talking about for so long in here?” Dante asked as she entered the dark room and flicked on the light, revealing her oldest and youngest homunculi embracing one another by the window. “Envy? Wrath?”
“Hello Master. We were just discussing how much we wanted to go spy on the Elric Brothers, with your permission of course.” Envy stated with a hint of firm obedience in his voice.
“Of course you may, Envy, you can bring Wrath with you.” Dante said as she turned and left the room.
“Thank you, Master.” Envy and Wrath called out to Dante at the same time.
“This is your plan?” Wrath asked as he turned to look at Envy.
“Yes. I told you I had a plan.”
