Ed didn't know how he got into this situation or how he was going to get back out of it.

"I, uh," he stammered, blushing.

"Mm-hm?" his date responded, intent on undoing his belt.

"I've never..." Now she looked up at his furiously blushing face, and he took the opportunity to pry her hands loose from his clothing. "I'm sorry. I don't think this is going to work."

He fled from the passenger seat of her car as quickly as he decently could.

Okay, this next one is a bit of back-story for Alfons, as I write him for a particular universe. Although the poor thing's barely actually in it.

The couple in the small house argued.

"Dammit woman! You keep thinking of 'just one last thing we have to take with us'," the man roared.

The woman defended herself. "These are mostly family heirlooms! Passed down for generations!"

"They won't do us any good if we're dead! The evacuation orders were given fifteen minutes ago!" An explosion in the near distance punctuated his statement.

A hand flew to the woman's mouth and she turned to go up the stairs. "I just thought of his--"

"The boy will live without them! We are going now!" He grabbed her wrist and started pulling her towards the front door of the house. The shell that landed on it ensured that they never made it out.

The old man listened to the other man stony-faced.

"There were... bodies in the wreckage. We think they were your son and his wife," the mustached man said hesitantly. "I'm sorry, Herr Heiderich."

Alfons closed his eyes and swallowed, fighting his tears from his listening spot on the other side of the door.

"What was that fool woman doing?" his grandfather muttered. "And why was he letting her get away with it? I've no doubt it was her fault they were still there when the house was destroyed."

This time Alfons couldn't help it and sobbed once before fleeing up the stairs.

The other man looked at the door, startled. "Who..?"

Now the elderly man looked weary. "That would have been my grandson, I imagine. Thankfully, my son insisted on sending him on ahead to me against his wife's protestions; she wanted him to stay with them. Otherwise, he'd also be gone."

"Their car was parked just far enough away that it escaped most of the damage. Should I have someone drive it here since assorted belongings are in it..?" Mustach offered, hands working at the edge of his cap.

Yeah. Poor kid. ;_;

Thanks for responding.

Can I adopt him now?

Since his parents just died in the thing, I don't think he'd appreciate being shipped off from his last remaining relative. Even if his grandfather never really approved of his mother.

Darn. *sends him hugs and a pile of toys, books, and sweet things instead*

I do intend to do more fics with his backstory. Eventually. After the version of Ed that's in the first fic is done eating my brain and is ready for a break. Well, unless something pops up and is all write me 'nownowNOW!' like this one sort of did.

That's awesome! I can't wait to read them. The child-versions of characters are always great to write, especially when their backstories aren't touched much if at all in canon. (I'm actually working on a story about the childhood of two characters from another series right now.... ^^;)

Don't know when I'd actually get around to them, since, well, ::points at icon::. That's what I'm doing with some current stuff. ^_^; (I think part of the problem is, too many fics, so I can't quite settle on working on one in particular, get frustrated, go 'screw it', and head off to RuneScape to beat up on NPCs.
C-chanbox_of_doom on May 12th, 2007 06:12 pm (UTC)
^^;;; Yeah... it's easy to get sidetracked over and over and over again. *points to the mound of unfinished fics in her bedroom, most of which will never be read by anyone, probably*

::pokes at NoteTab:: I seem to be working on five at the moment. (Thankfully, Envy is being quiet about the sixth one that's floating in my head. I think he actually got that I meant it about not bothering me with anything else until I get at least a couple of these done.)

Not that there's only five tabs open, because a few tabs are for completely unrelated stuff, there's little scenebits for a couple of longer fics (one of which I need to rethink a bit and figure out what happens when). One of which is full of little random things for the Ed that's currently chewing on my brain, one for the Ed that belongs to Envy, and agh.

Oh, dear. Poor, poor Alfons... *hugs him*

Yeah. ;_; Thanks for reading.
