Ed: “Okay!”
--------------------------
Ed: “Let’s stop by Headquarters first. Lt. Colonel Hughes works at the court martial office, right?”
Winry: “Uh huh.”
--------------------------
Al: “I wonder if he found out anything about the Philosopher’s Stone?”
Ed: “Hm... I don’t know. The President did tell him to stay out of it...”
--------------------------
Winry: “What are you talking about?”
Ed: “Men’s business!”


Page 3:
Winry: “Aw... That’s what you always say!”
Fuu: “Hey!”
--------------------------
Fuu: ”Where’s the prince?” “You cads were with hum the whole time.”
--------------------------
He’s gone!!
--------------------------

Ed: “Good riddance! Let’s go!”
Al: Okay.

--------------------------
Hawkeye: “Edward and Alphonse. Have you guys been doing well?”
Ed: “Uh huh. Same as always.”
--------------------------
Winry: “Hey!!” “It’s that lady that I met before!!”
--------------------------

Mustang: “Hello, Fullmetal.”
SFX: SLAM
--------------------------
Al: “Good day, Colonel.”
--------------------------
Mustang: “What’s with that unhappy face?” Wow. What a cute little girl. I’m Roy Mustang and my rank is Colonel. What? You’ve met me before? I remember your cute face now. But I didn’t recognize you at first because you’ve become so beautiful and grown up. I bet you have to fight off all the boys wherever you go, right? Come and see me anytime if you ever need any advice. Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Ed: “What’s HE doing here!?!


Page 7:
Mustang: “I was transferred to Central a few days ago. So, what brings you here today?”
Ed: “I’m here for research.”
--------------------------
Ed: “I’ve been trying to find information on the Philosopher’s Stone and Homunculi.”
Mustang: “Humunculi? What are you, stupid?”
--------------------------
Mustang: “You know the rules. ‘No alchemist shall create a human being.’ The military would leave information like that lying around?”
Ed: “Yeah, well...”
--------------------------
Ed: “Oh, and one other thing!” “We thought we’d visit Lt. Colonel Hughes.”
--------------------------
Ed: “How’s he doing?


Page 8:
Mustang: “He’s gone.”
--------------------------
Ed: “Huh?”


Page 9:
Mustang: “...” “...He moved back to the countryside.”
--------------------------
Mustang: “Things have been so dangerous here lately...” “So, he took his wife and kid and moved back to the country. He’s going to take over the family business.”
--------------------------
Mustang: “You won’t find him here.”
--------------------------
Ed: “Really...? That’s too bad.”
--------------------------
Al: “Being a soldier is a dangerous profession.”
Winry: “Aw... I really wanted to see him too.”


Page 10:
Mustang: “The Philosopher’s Stone and Homunculi, right? I’ll let you know if I find anything.” “Let’s go, Lieutenant.”
Hawkeye: “Yes, sir.”
--------------------------
Mustang: “Oh, and, Fullmetal...” “Try to stay out of trouble. Don’t get reckless.”
--------------------------
Ed: “?” “All right. I’ll be careful.”
--------------------------
Hawkeye: “Why are you treating him like a child all of a sudden?”
SFX: CLAK CLAK CLAK CLAK CLAK
--------------------------
Mustang: “There’s no need for them to know the truth yet.” “In order for those brothers to move forward, the fewer obstacles that are in their way the better.”

Mustang: “... Who am I trying to kid?”
--------------------------
Mustang: “I’m just as much of a softie like the major is.”
--------------------------
Hawkeye: “Speaking of Major Armstrong, did you hear about his subordinate?”
Mustang: “Huh?”


Page 12:
Hawkeye: “One of the officers under him is the prime suspect in Lt. Colonel Hughes’s murder.”
--------------------------
Mustang: “What!? Who!?”
Hawkeye: “2nd Lieutenant Maria Ross. Although she denies the charge.”
--------------------------
Mustang: “...
--------------------------
Mustang: “Bring me any information you can find on Lt. Ross.”
Hawkeye: “To what extent?”
--------------------------
Mustang: “All of it.” “Hurry... ...but be very secretive.”
Hawkeye: “Yes, sir.”


Page 13:
Man: “We’ll be recording the entire conversation.”

SFX: CLACK


Page 14:
Armstrong: “Explain to me what happened.”
--------------------------
Ross: “Lt. Colonel Hughes was killed by a .45 caliber bullet, the same caliber used in standard military issue sidearms.” “One shot was fired.”
--------------------------
Ross: “My handgun uses the same type of bullet.” “And I also recently discharged one bullet.”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “Why was that?”
--------------------------
Ross: “... To protect the Elric brothers at Laboratory number five.”


Page 15:
Ross: “That facility has been sealed off and the incident of that night isn’t on record.” “The military won’t even acknowledge that anyone was there on the night it happened.”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “’Discharged for an unknown reason.’ Surely that’s not the only evidence...”
--------------------------
Ross: “No. Someone allegedly saw me leaving the crime scene close to the time of the murder.”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “Were you there?”
Ross: “No. I was at my parents’ house at the time.”
--------------------------
Ross: “But the testimony of family members and close relations cannot be used as an alibi.”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “So there’s no way you can defend yourself in this situation...”


Page 16:
Brosh: “Major Armstrong!”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “Sergeant Brosh!”
Brosh: “You came here as well, Major?”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “Are you going to see Lt. Ross?”
Brosh: “Yes, sir. Regarding the mystery bullet, sir.”
--------------------------
Brosh: “I also fired one shot with the Lieutenant when we were guarding the Elric brothers.”
Armstrong: “What?”
--------------------------
Brosh: “I came to back up 2nd Lieutenant Ross’s story with this information...” “... but they refused to even let me in.”


Page 17:
Armstrong: “Hmh...”
Brosh: “It’s strange. It’s almost as if they’ve already made up their mind that 2nd Lieutenant Ross is guilty.”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “Or perhaps...”
--------------------------
Armstrong: “... They’re planning to frame her from the very beginning...?”
--------------------------
Postman: “Here’s your newspaper.”
SFX: CLONK
