Summary/Comments: Edward Elric is at the end of his life, maybe. Written for 18coda.
For a long time he had thought it had been the end for him. For the world of Amestris, Edward Elric no longer existed. Six years after the transmutation that nearly ended his life period, the Fullmetal Alchemist came back to Amestris. Only a few short hours later, he was bad in Germany only this time he'd brought his younger brother with him.
So that had been the end of two people. Or so Ed had thought. But two more years passed and somehow he and Al had come across yet another portal into Amestris. Maybe it wasn't the end of Edward Elric. Maybe he could make his way back to his home. To Roy.
The image of the Colonel was still very firm in Ed's mind from their last meeting. It'd been short lived but much had passed through them during that time. Not so much in words but just through their eyes. Something had happened when Ed had disappeared, something had happened to the Colonel. Something had died in him, and then had been reborn when he saw Ed alive again.
It was strange, but Ed realized how much he'd missed Roy when he'd seen that. All he could think about before was Al, but now that he had Al safely with him, it was only Roy that he thought of anymore. So when they'd gotten back to Amestris. The first person he'd went to find was the Colonel.
Maybe it wouldn't be the cadence to the song of the life of Edward Elric just yet.
