The train moved steadily along the tracks, onward to Berlin. “Just another hour and we will see Hughes again,” said Edward, motioning with his hands, “We’re making good progress despite out earlier “interruption.”
“I can’t believe the Nazis are just moving in like this, they seem to be getting more powerful everyday.” Alphonse stated, as he stared out the window.
“It’s because of the First War, Al. Germany felt humiliated and now the Nazis want to bring back Germany’s true power.” Edward said sharply.
Crossing his legs, Edward placed his bag on his lap and began to look through several papers. “What are you looking for brother?” Alphonse leaned over trying to look into Edward’s bag.
“I need to make sure all the papers are in order. I need to study the map of Berlin. Knowing the city inside and out will be a big help.” Edward pulled out a folded brown piece of paper.
Unfolding it carefully, Edward leaned it over towards Alphonse. “As you can see, we will be at the south side of Berlin when we meet with Hughes.”
“Right, and in two days we will go to the center of Berlin were all the records are kept.” Alphonse pointed to the middle of the map with his finger.
“Exactly. Once we find Noah’s and Huskisson’s records, we can make our move.” Edward smiled, folding the map.
“How did Huskisson make it through the gate, Brother?” Al questioned.
Edward shook his head and raised his arms, “You usually have to give up before they will give. Remember equivalent exchange; no matter what world you are in you change that.”
Alphonse and Edward sat quietly, unsure of what to say to breath the eerie silence. “Edward, I know you said we could never return, but if you could…would you?”
“Alphonse, we discussed this before. We can’t live on if’s or could’s or should’s. We have to be for the now and the future.” Edward said softly. Alphonse looked at Edward and could see that even though his brother said it and meant it, he truly wished to be home.
“Besides Al, we have a life here and we have each other. To me that means more than ever going back to our world.” Edward smiled, closing his eyes tightly. Alphonse could only smile back at his brother’s goofy grin.
Trains pulled into the station one by one. Loud screams of the heavy machines coming to a halt echoed through the station. People rushed out from the trains in haste, pushing and shoving to get off.
Looking down at his watch, Maes Hughes started to tap his foot impatiently, “The train should have been here by now.”
“Train 58 is approaching at track 49!” the train attendant called out to the awaiting crowd.
“Hughes looked at his note to make sure it was Edward’s train. “About damn time,” Hughes huffed as he made his way towards the platform.
“Come on Al, the sooner I get off this train the better.” Edward grumbled as he pushed his way through the other passengers.
“Brother, you don’t have to be so mean,” Alphonse said as he apologized for his brother’s rudeness.
“Come on Al, don’t get left behind,” Edward lugged his suit case to the exit of the train. As he approached the plank, Edward put his hand over his eyes scoping out the crowd.
“Do you see Hughes?” Alphonse asked standing beside his brother, moving his head side-to-side scanning through the massive crowd. Edward’s eyes suddenly focused on a tall man wearing glasses and sporting a goatee.
“Edward! Alphonse! Over here!” Hughes waved his hand in the air to grab their attention.
“Look, brother!” Alphonse pointed.
“Yeah, same old Hughes.” Edward smirked as he stepped off the platform.
“Edward it’s good to see you again.” Said Hughes, reaching out his hand and taking hold of Edward’s.
“Same to you Hughes.” Edward stated, giving Hughes’ hand a good squeeze and shake.
“Alphonse, I see you are growing taller than Edward,” Alphonse blushed, putting his hand behind his head and started rubbing it. Edward was about to say something when Hughes interrupted him. “Glad you guys are here, but we need to get going. Gracia is making dinner and we have a lot discuss.”
Nodding their heads in agreement, the trio left the crowded station. Outside Hughes took the boys over to a dark blue car, “Come one, boys, we’re having stew tonight.”
