*ish sad* No comments? Really? Oh well, here comes more! Something Inbetween me and Brother? Pfft! Yah Right!
Al woke dreamily on the same seat he had sat in for hours on the train. He felt so content on that train, it was just like the old days, or as Al was told. Winry had said very little about the four years Al had forgotten, but she did mention that he and Ed always traveled by train and that it became a habit.
Al soon saw signs of home. His heart was pounding. What will I say when I see him? What will he say? Will he look different?
Thousands of these questions popped into the younger Elric's head on the ride.
Just as the train was less than 40 minutes away from Rizenbul, the train came to an abrupt and loud screeching halt. Frightened children clung to their mothers asking what the problem was. Alphonse put on a serious look and stood up, ready for anything to happen. An intercom turned on and the engineer spoke. "Attention everyone, there seems to be something blocking the trains way...we may, I'm sorry to say this, have hit some people while breaking...I will quickly end this delay. Thank you for your cooperation." Al sighed. He didn't think it would be that easy.
A few minutes after the announcement, six renegades jumped on the train car and pulled out pistols. One shouted "ANY State Alchemists on this care, stand with your hands up or every friggen' person on this car dies!! You hear me!?"Geez...they sure are demanding,
Alphonse thought. He held up his hands and walked onto the isle. The renegades smiled, then looked confused, then frowned.
"HEY! Aren't you that famous alchemist's little brother? The brother of the dead one? Yah, you're the Angel Alchemist! Heheh! Killing you will greatly help our cause!"
Alphonse instantly felt something burst. He said cooly but slightly evily, as if there was a warning in his voice, "My brother is not
dead. As a matter of fact, I'm on my way to see him now. He's expecting me in an hour and if I'm late to supper, he'll be upset. And when Ed's upset, I'm upset...so, can we please end this?"
The renegades laughed. "You tried to run away from us! That's right, we know you were in that troop to fight off our anti-alchemy group! Why dontchya step outside, little boy?" the rest continued to laugh, thinking that what they were doing was just.
Al chuckled and followed them out of the train. He heard the people mumbling as he walked by, with comments like "Fullmetal's younger brother?" and "Will he be alright on his own?"
Outside, the conducter and engineer were tied up in ropes. Al got even angrier, and said sinisterly, "Before we do this, I suggest you let those innocent men there free."
The men snorted and the leader said "Not after resisting our orders! They'll die along with you, runt! Now...you're all mine!!"
The battle begun. The leader of the anti-alchemy group took his pistol and shouted "This'll be quick!" and shot. He smiled at his perfect aim, but then frowned to see it blocked by a stone wall just the size of the fourteen-year-old. He grunted. "Dammit! Where the hell did you go, Angel!?"
Al never answered. The leader was painfully nocked out cold by a long wooden staff Alphonse had transmuted. He turned to the five remaining men and said, "This is what happens when you go against a State Alchemist. Now, I despise violence, so please leave without hurting anyone?" The men looked at eachother in fear now that their leader was down. One quickly screamed and ran quickly and heaved the leader on his shoulder and ran back to the group just as quickly. Al smiled. "Good."
Another frightened man shouted "Now what do we do!?"
Al smiled wider with gentle eyes. "Just go home. " The men looked surprised, and ran off.
Alphonse untied the two men and they gave him their most sincere thanks. They insisted his ride refunded as repayment but Al, being ever so polite, refused the offer. He just got back on the train with nothing more than many pats on the back by thankful riders.
Al sat back down as the train started up again. "Hmm." he mumbled. Ed...Winry...everyone.
Al just couldn't stop himself from laughing in joy at the thought of the wonderful reunion.
I don't think I'll make any more until I get atleast some reviews...I wanna know if I'm making a crappy fanfic! lol
