A FMA Fanfic
Disclaimer: Very much not mine. No

Please note that this story was written PRIOR to the English-language
publication of the FMA novel The
Abducted Alchemist by Makoto Inoue (which I highly recommend),
in which there is a scene where Ed pulls a stunt similar to that which
occurs in this fic.
She was beyond beautiful, a true
shining gem among women.
Or at least, that’s what Roy
Mustang was telling her.
“An angel come down from on high,”
he told her, a charming smile playing over his lips. The woman, Mary
something or other, giggled and played with her hair flirtatiously and
he moved in closer. “Dearest angel, I realise that I am totally
unworthy, but perhaps I could interest you in an evening of dinner and
A smile played around her mouth and
Roy relaxed, resisting the urge to smirk, confident in his plans for
the rest of the evening. He was in a supremely good mood at the moment.
It had been a good day. There were no emergencies, he’d met a woman who
was beautiful AND willing, he’d managed to elude Hawkeye and duck out
on all his paperwork, and he’d spent the previous hour enjoyably
teasing the Fullmetal Alchemist about his height.
Possibly it would have been better
for him if he’d left the last two parts out of his day.
Roy stiffened as someone tugged at
his sleeve, and looked down.
Golden eyes gleamed up at him in
evil amusement. “Come onnn...” Edward Elric whined at him, his hair
loose around his shoulders as he tried his best to look small and cute
and even younger than his fifteen years. “You PROMISED you’d check my
homework for me!”
Roy snapped his head up quickly.
“Please ignore him,” he told whatever-her-name-was. “He’s just a poor
deluded child. I give him money from time to time out of charity.
Feeble-minded you know.”

at Roy’s arm. He glanced behind him and grinned. “Mom’s waiting for
Roy started to reach for his gloves
when he looked in the direction of Ed’s glance to see Hawkeye
approaching him, a grim expression on her face. Mary looked at the
blonde woman striding towards them with a proprietal expression on her
face, and the blonde child clinging to Roy and huffed.
“Men!” She snarled, and stalked off
Ed let go of Roy and jumped back
just as Hawkeye arrived. “Taisa,” she said abruptly. “There are a
number of reports that require your urgent attention.”
“You... he...” Roy spluttered as Ed
continued to back away.
“Well, good luck with that!” Ed
cheered as he strategically withdrew. “I’ll see you in a couple of
weeks, okay?” Turning, he ran to where his brother was waiting by the
door and the two boys quickly dashed out. Roy was still staring after
them when Ed poked his head back in the doorway.
“Say Pops, can I borrow the car?”
The flame blast nearly took his
braid off, but Ed maintained that it was more than worth a few burns to
see THAT expression on Mustang’s face.
