@Aizen - Thank you!!!!
Chapter 87 Summary
"Pledge in the underground passageway"
In Central. Area with many bars and drinking holes. Madam Christmas's bar.
Madam Christmas hands over a thick file of report on Selim, full of evidences that Selim is not human. There are pictures of Selim from 20 years ago, 35 years ago, 40 years ago, 50 years ago, all with the same appearance. Selim hasn't changed in years. The addresses listed were fakes. The people in the town listed as his birth place has no memories of his family ever existing in town.
Meantime, outside Madam Christmas' bar, two agents from Central Military discuss the information they have collected. Madam Christmas' true identity is... Roy Mustang's adoptive mother.
The two agents raid Madam Christmas' bar. The bar is empty. Then, there is a sudden explosion.
Mustang has set off the bomb and blasted the bar. Madam is forced to retire her business and go hiding. The girls who were working at her place have already been all escorted to the safety abroad. Madam still treats Mustang as if he is a young boy. Mustang pleads to her to stop treating him as a kid.
After saying good-bye to Madam, Mustang heads for the secret hideout place deep in the underground passageway. There are Riza, Hayate, and the gang waiting for him. They have already researched the schedule for Mrs. Bradley for the next 3 days, and had the report of the explosion of the train Bradley was on. They decide to kidnap Mrs. Bradley.
Meantime, in the strategy room in the Central military HQ. The Bradley's brass officers, with Father, is planning the next move also. They read the next move by the Mustang and the gang, and lead to the conclusion that they would probably kidnap Mrs. Bradley. Father utters.. "Humans... such incorrigible fools..."
Meantime, near the slum town.... Gluttony is getting cut up by Ranfan and getting repeated attacks by Ling. The ability to sense the "chi" of the Xing is is being a powerful weapon. There is Mr. Fuu by Ed also. He can sense Ling and Gluttony fighting, then Selim, and he senses that there is another one with extraordinarily strong "chi" nearby... Ed tells that is Hohenheim, his father, and tells Mr. Fuu that he is harmless for now and we should not harm him. Ed asks Mr. Fuu to attack Homunculi first.
They decide to leave the attack of Gluttony to Ling and Ranfan. Mr. Fuu shows Ed a variety of bombs he has brought.
The light is coming back in the slum town. Ed asks Mr. Fuu to help him while Ed attacks Selim.
Selim also notices that the light is back in the slum. He attacks passer-by residents and obtains the light from the lantern. The shadowy hands of Pride attacks Heinckel and goes for kill, but stopped by Ed's counter attack. Selim notices that Pride's shadow is not being able to cut into Ed's arm. Ed shows off his carbon steel arm (the same stuff as Greed's body) he has received while in the Northern army.
Pride decides to go inside Al's armor and attacks Ed, but that was what Ed was hoping for. The powerful light from "flash" bomb brought by Mr. Fuu illuminates every parts of Al, inside and out, literally eliminating all the shadow. Pride runs off and eats Gluttony who had been weakened by attacks by Ling and RanFan, thus obtains Gluttony's powerful sense of smell.
His nose senses the presence of another familiar smell... Following the smell he finds Hohenheim...

YESSSS! Roy and Riza! And Ling and RanFan kicking homunculi butt together again! Seriously, did someone replace today with Christmas and not tell me? Ohhh... I await the translation with much enthusiasm!
EDIT: Just put it into an online translator, which gave me a pretty understandable translation, expecially when compared to what Tombow said. This is going to be one exciting chapter!
