Summary: The children have difficulty going to sleep. Edward decides to remedy this by telling them stories.
“Why do they have to fight?” Winry asked Alphonse as the two of them crouched on their hind legs like panthers prepared to prowl and pounce upon their enemies, breathing in deeply, as though the air might dissipate the moment someone moved.
She liked to imagine Alphonse with a wistful smile, and knowing, honey-brown eyes. “It’s the way they communicate. They’re more alike than they’d like to admit aloud.”
