Ed tosses four sausages at once into his mouth and swallows almost without chewing, shooting Al a smug, triumphant grin.
Sometimes, he really wished that sleeping dogs would have been left alone...
There was a terrible vulnerability to Roy when his cover slipped, and it made Ed uncomfortable.
Something about the place seems to be sucking the life out of him; the more time he spends indoors, the more he seems to wilt.
"When I walked in on you in the bath, Edward, I wasn't expecting Al to be there too."
Most people knew enough to leave Envy alone when he was so clearly unhappy.
God, he's gorgeous, even cut up. Especially cut up.
Humans are so greedy, the Truth had told him in his dreams; and for all his airs and graces, he is no exception.
Heaven is this: a short, crisp October day, the clear sky a great bowl above them, the amber valley a chalice below.
There would always be this silence in the air, stifling, thick, foggy and almost opaque, and I would watch from the mouth of the hallway, hands in front of me, our kitten, Unsere, threading through my legs.
Too many more nights of excuses are going to drive him from appropriately celibate to stark raving mad.
This really was turning out to be a day of surprises, thought Roy.
"I'll have you know I'm in a committed monogamous relationship."
"So, we're one gunshot from a civil war. If someone from Hakuro's faction fired that shot, for whatever reason ..."

Some of the stuff he was asked to investigate was truly stupid shit. A bakery, for instance.
If killers and empty assassin armor hadn't frightened him, half a foot of park bench shouldn't leave him feeling so useless and pathetic.
Roy wondered how far Alphonse would go to prove his point.
"Beautiful," he purred again, a smile curling the edges of his lips, and Roy shivered despite the heat.
All it took was a push of his hand and the twist of a small brass key to put it out of sight.
The reaction is the most intense Edward has ever seen.

Contrary to popular opinion, Roy Mustang was quite skilled at dealing with emotions.
"It's cheating," he declared at last, "To pick a fight while I ache."
Life, the Fullmetal Alchemist decided viciously, wasn't fair.
"Let me get this straight — you want to kiss me to support a theory!?"
There was really too much good happening today to allow room for imperfection, in his humble opinion.
"He's a smug arrogant prick and Jean's a lazy bastard with a mouth like an ashtray."
"Because," said Al flatly, "Roy is dark and handsome and--most importantly of all--charming. And you're short and blond and obnoxious."
The only other tradition that was better than eggnog to Al, was that of mistletoe.
He was only human though, and he had given into his rage at having to deal with Edward's dysfunction--and now Edward was gone, and it looked more and more like he might not be coming back.
And he was tired, and he did eventually fall asleep, to the vague hum of voices in discussion downstairs.
"Tall girls need not apply," Hughes read aloud, without even the trace of a smirk.

Sometimes he outright disappeared for hours, leaving Al feeling panicked.
The kid packed a pretty good punch, Greed thought idly.

Roy was enchanted by the sound of her voice, pure like dewdrops in the morning.
And when the next words followed, barely loud enough to be heard, the General was surprised by the force behind them.
There are things he cannot allow Greed to do.
Al crouches down on a dune looking down on the camp and draws an array in the sand, thinking of Gunnar with a dull pang of grief.
"You're getting quite the list," Roy said. "Not that I am any sort of advocate for monogamy, but you certainly are taking full advantage of playing the field."
Are those little flamels on his pajamas? Where the hell does he shop, Alchemist Cliches 'R Us?
The blond shook his head lightly, probably in amusement, "I'm really sorry but he's normally not like this to strangers but your resemblance? is very striking, Roy."
"Can I trust you," Ed's dewy eyes were huge and he looked somehow younger than he'd ever looked before.
It was the first official meeting of the Big But Not Scary Club.
"Normal punishments don't work on my brother. We'd better come up with something else."
Schezcka pushed her glasses up, using the glass reflection to hide her eyes.
Ed growled under his breath, color high in his cheeks, and pulled away.
Screaming or crying would have been appropriate. Edward Elric didn't care about propriety. He was laughing.
Living dangerously had its perks.
