Thank you so much! I'm very pleased that you enjoy them! That gives me a big boost! And THANK YOU for reading this story you call nice! I'm so flattered, I'm blushing! Thanks! I'll post the next one in a few minutes! I've noticed these keep getting longer. But they won't pass the 1,300 words limit (I hope). And yeah, I feel like this one is cheesy, but I have to put it up sometime or another, so I might as well get it out of the way. Let me know what you think of this one, okay? Thank you so much edo little kid for enjoying these!
My tears ran down my cheeks so quickly that I felt they would never be stopped. He was leaving again and it made me miserable to watch him go. He was getting everything ready for his departure and I had no way to stop him.
“Winry, are you crying?” my granny surprised me from behind.
I was hesitant. “Yes,” I squeaked.
"Honey, you’ve watched him come and go too many times. And every time he leaves, you cry for him. Why don’t you tell him?” Tell him? My grandmother!
“Are you crazy?! He would never listen to me. Do you think he could feel the same in the slightest?” I had my reasons to feel doubt. He was always busy.
‘Why not? You got a nice smile, expressive blue eyes, a gorgeous face and body, pretty hair, a caring attitude. What’s there not to like about you?” her attempts were sweet, but not persuasive.
“Thanks granny, but he won’t” I choked.
“Winry, you’re letting time pass and eventually, he might look for someone else. You’re killing the love you have for him.”
“I don’t know what to do, granny.” I whispered.
“You’ve thought that it’s not worth the time because you grew up and your childhood days won’t return. Even if you and Edward have changed, your love for him has also. Everyone has taken notice, Winry.” She was lecturing me, but it sounded like a pep-talk.
“You’re right; he doesn’t know and he won’t know until I tell him.” I stood and headed for the stairs.
“You have to help yourself, honey.” Granny said as I came to the last step.
I was nervous, but I was the extroverted out of the two of us.
“Edward,” I said as I entered his room, “we need to talk.”
“What is it Winry?” he sounded indifferent, but he would start caring in a few moments.
I closed the door and took baby steps so I wouldn’t lose my balance. “Ed, I…you can’t leave yet.” What was I doing?
“Why not? Winry, I have to; it’s my job.” This time he turned to face me and his eyes widened when he saw me.
“You’ve left me so many times, Ed.” I began as I continued to walk towards him. “I’m not blaming you of anything. I’m telling you it hurts.”
I saw him cringe when I said that. “Winry…I’m sorry I do that, but the military needs me and…” To hell with that crap!
“So do I.” I felt the need to break down, but I had to be strong so he would listen. “I miss you so much and you don’t come that often to visit. But I want for you to stay…with me here.” By the time I finished talking, I was a few inches away from his face.
“What are you saying Winry?” he was confused, but he would get the picture.
I leaned forward and connected his lips with mine, wrapping my arms around his neck in the process. He responded to my gesture and wrapped his arms around my waist.
“I love you, Ed.” I was prepared to tell him, but I didn’t think it would be this easy.
“What?” he breathed.
“It’s what you’re hearing Ed. I’m in love with you. I can’t stop thinking of you and when you’re here, you fill me up.” Does he need another explanation?
“You waited all this time just to tell me?” Huh?
“I’m not just going to come up all of a sudden and tell you this in your face.” I said intrigued.
“Ironically enough, you did just that. But I’m glad you did.” Now he was confusing me.
“What are you saying?” I wanted his reason!
“No offence, but how could someone like you be attracted to me?” I wanted to slap him there.
“Don’t say that! Do you have any idea how many girls are after you?!” It was impressive to me that I had to tell him!
“I know that, but I’m asking about you. I mean, look at you, you’re perfect. How can you love me?” he snorted at first, but then he softened up.
“I don’t know. It’s just…you I guess. I love everything about you. There’s no other explanation to it.” I blushed heavily.
“Well, I feel stupid.” He murmured.
“Why?” Did he want something?
“I didn’t think you’d like me. That’s why I never said anything. And you know how shy I am.” But he liked me?!
“Don’t feel like that. And you’re not being shy right now.” I said.
“I guess, but Winry, I still have to go over there.” That job of his.
“Right, but at least I don’t have to drown myself in my own truth. I got to tell you how I feel even if it was like this.” My cheeks felt like lava.
“But once I finish, I’ll ask for time off and I’ll come here. Now that I know you love me, I can come with more anticipation.”
“Really? But you better be careful. If anything happens to you, I’ll kill you myself!” I smiled.
“That’s very affectionate of you Winry.” He laughed. “But I will.”
And then he kissed me. I felt triumphant and as I watched him go, I was relaxed. He knew already and now I was the reason he would return. Granny was right; I had to speak up so he could hear me.
