Babysitting FullMetal: Chapter One


"Please, don't give me that!" the Colonel yelled. "I give you the orders, you obey them! ..unless of course you would rather me tell the Fuhrer you disobeyed my orders.."

"What!?" the Alchemist yelled back. "Why do I have to babysit someone? Anyways, last time I checked, we didn't allow little thirteen year old boys in the military!!"

"This is an order!" Colonel yelled once more. "..........." the Alchemist paused for a moment.

"Fine, Mustang, you owe me...big time." "Heh heh, stop by my office tonight, I'll pay you in full." Mustang said with a slight smirk.

"WHAT!?!?!" the Alchemist screamed. "Do you HONESTLY think I would ever do something like that with you?!"

"Sigh....well, here is your portfolio on him, you will meet him infront of the main building tomorrow at 0900 hours." Mustang said as he handed the alchemist the portfolio. "You two have quite a lot in common, I can't wait to read the report...don't forget to say every single detail that happens between you two. Both while guarding, and while...well, let's just leave it at that, I'm sure can figure out what I'm trying to say. "

The Alchemist swipes the report out of Mustang's hands and walks out of his office, completely disgusted. She stood outside of his office reading the portfolio, she was surpirsed about most of the things he has accomplished, while being so young. She then started walking down the hallway. About half way down the hall, she hears someone close a door behind her. Out of curiosity, she turns around to see who it was. Hughes! Maybe if she was quick enough, he wouldn't notice her. She turns back around and walks as fast as she could. Then all of a sudden...

"Hey! Sara!" Hughes called. "I have more pictures of Elysia that you just have to see!"

"Hughes, I don't have time, I'm going to eat, then go to bed, it's late..." Sara said while yawning.

"What a coincidence! I'm heading down to the cafeteria too! I'll show you the pictures down there!" Hughes said cheerfully.

Hughes and Sara walked down to the cafeteria, grabbed their dinner, and sat down at a table. Before Sara could even get a bite of food, Hughes pulled out a photo album full of pictures...lucky her.

"See?? Isn't she adorable?? This is her before she is eating her luch, this is her eating her lunch, this is her finishing her lunch, and this is Elysia putting up her dishes!" Hughes continued to talk. "I taught her how to put up her dishes, she is so adorable!"

"Yes Hughes...she is adorable," Sara said after taking a bite of her dinner. "Now, just let me eat, I have to 'babysit' someone called 'FullMetal' tomorrow."

"Ha ha, you are have to 'babysit' Ed?!" Hughes laughed. "Good luck with that! Lemme tell you though, don't ever call him short!"

"Thanks for the advice, but I think I am going to go to bed now...goodnight Hughes." Sara said while putting up her unfinished dinner. Sara walked out of the cafeteria straight to her hotel room across the street as fast as she could. She through down the portfolio and fell back on the bed, falling asleep instantly.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When Sara awoke, she hurried up and got ready. After all, she only had an hour and a half to get ready!

"Damn alarm clock," she said while getting ready. "I forgot, it messes up from time to time."

As soon as she had finished getting ready, she hurriedly locked up her hotel room, and ran out of the hotel. While running to the front of Central Building, she had passed a food stand. She ran back to it and carefully picked out the best apple she could find, she shouldn't forget the most important meal of the day!

Once she picked out the apple and paid for it, she started eating it while on the way down to the main building. She continued eating the apple while waiting for the 'FullMetal'. She waited and waited, but still no sign of him.

After what had seem like forever, she looked up, and saw someone walking around in a suit of armor, and next to the armor, was the child she was looking for! She quickly walked over to them and tapped the child on the shoulder.

"Um...are you the one who is called 'FullMetal'?" Sara asked nervously.

"Heh heh, so I see that you've heard of me, the one and only 'FullMetal Alchemist'!" the Alchemist said while smiling.

"Oh! That's good. I am the one who will be guarding you while you are on this assignment." Sara replied.

"You are guarding me?!" he said. "Damn Colonel, he said I was just going to have an assistant! You are not going to 'guard' me."

"Yes I am." she replied."No, you're not!" the Alchemist yelled.

"Yes I am you little brat!" Sara retorted."Did you just call me little?" he asked angrily.

"WHO ARE YOU CALLING A PINT SIZED SHRIMP WHO CAN BARELY BE SEEN WITH A MICROSCOPE!?!?!"

The person in the suit of armor grabbed the alchemist's arms and held him back. But Sara and the alchemist continued to argue.

After what had seemed like hours and hours of arguing, they had finally settled down, the person in the suit of armor let the alchemist go, and they all sighed.

"Brother, I think you owe her an apology." the suit of armor said.

"Why would I apologize to her!?!" Ed asked.

"Brother! She is doing her job! And I am sure she doesn't want to be here anymore than you want to be here, especially after the way you yelled at her! Apologize!" the armor yelled.

The suit of armor and the short alchemist continued arguing. After about five minutes, the short alchemist had lost to the armor, and the armor pushed him to Sara. And told him to apologize.

"Sigh....fine. I'm sorry." the alchemist said. "I'm Edward Elric and this is my younger brother Al."

"Younger brother? But he is bigger than you." Sara replied, slightly confused.

"WHAA---" Ed was cut short.

"Heh heh, it's a long story." Al said. "Sorry for the way brother was acting earlier, nice to meet you...uh...what was your name again?"

"Ack! I'm sorry, my name is Sara." She replied. "Nice to meet you too."
