COMMENTS ARE APPRECIATED! And there will be another update really soon, promise!



Roy was lost. Hopelessly, utterly, lost. He’d only been in Lior two or three times and the desert city was rather…vast. And it didn’t help that all the building there looked relatively the same.

“How can I help Ed when I’m lost myself?” The General growled to himself. Of course, he shouldn’t have just left everyone back at the hotel…but he was worried. Some thing had stolen the one person that Roy Mustang lived for! He’d been searching for something this important to him his entire life. He had thought it was his country, he had thought it was his team, but no…it was one very short, hot-tempered alchemist. Whom he loved more than life itself and was now missing! This was all his fault!

Roy nearly fell over when a building only a few yards away fro him suddenly acquired a rather large hole and a huge dust cloud. Even from where he was, Roy recognized the blue alchemist streaks and the destruction that screamed “Here’s where the Fullmetal Alchemist is!”

“Ed!”

~*~

Ed leaned against part of what was left of the wall and spit blood. The fucking bastard had busted his lip and had almost made Ed bite through his tongue. His whole body shook with the effort that it had taken to use alchemy. His body simply wasn’t used to it. Coughing again from the dust, Ed peered around, trying to find Envy, “Stop hiding you fucker!”

“Ed?” A nervous voice asked through the hole. That wasn’t Roy. It couldn’t be. It was Envy…pretending again.

“Don’t use his voice!” Ed screamed when he saw Roy, though weather it was from pain or anger, no one could tell. And just as Ed was going to throw himself against the new comer, there were two of Roy. One standing much closer and one farther away. That’s when Ed knew that Roy really had shown up at the scene. The closer one, without the eye patch, had to be Envy.

With one fluid movement, and a clap, Ed transformed his arm into a blade and sent it through the fake Roy’s stomach. The homunculi looked surprised for a minute before giving Ed a satisfied look.

“I still…got…your…stupid brother.” Envy’s spit along with blood covered Ed’s face. The homunculus’ body slowly disappeared as it went to join the others. And with that, Ed finally passed out, landing alone on the cold floor.

~*~

Roy had watched Ed fight the homunculus. He had noticed that when Ed had transformed his arm, he had transmuted a small something into the metal. It almost looked like a bone, but he couldn’t be sure. And when he saw Ed pass out, he ran to him.

But before Roy could pick him up, Roy saw Al lying not too far away. The younger Elric had a short dagger driven in his chest. Close, but not in to the boy’s heart. Yanking the dagger out, Roy bandaged the wound with the boy’s torn shirt. Hoping it would keep the boy from losing too much blood. Carefully, he grabbed Al’s feet and Ed’s feet and slowly dragged them from the wreck and towards the hospital.
