Chapter 1- Wirny’s Arrival
“Excuse me, Sir, would you take this to Full Metal?” a young woman asked a man in a blue uniform.
“Sure, where is he?”
“There, behind you,” she said pointing to the three people behind him.
The man walked up to the three people who seemed to be having an argument.
“No, Ed, I do not give you permission to investigate,” said the taller man. This man’s name was Roy Mustang. He wore a blue uniform like the man told to give Full Metal the letter. Roy’s uniform, however, also had his rank on it, which happened to be colonel. Roy also wore white gloves with an alchemistic symbol on them in red. Colonel Roy Mustang was also known as the Flame Alchemist.
“But Colonel…” the young boy tried to protest. He was much shorter than the colonel though he was15 years old. His name was Edward Elric. Unlike the colonel he did not wear a blue uniform, instead he wore a black shirt, black pants, black boots, and a red jacket. Ed was the youngest person ever to join the State Alchemists. He had joined when he was only 12. Many knew Ed as the Full Metal Alchemist.
“No! And that’s it understand….”
“Permission to speak, Sir,” the man interrupted.
“Yes, what is it?” Roy asked
“Colonel Mustang, I have a telegram for Edward.”
“Then why the hell are you telling me? He’s right there,” Mustang said pointing to Ed.
“Oh, sorry Ed. I didn’t exactly see you there,” the man said joking around.
“How did you not see me? Are you trying to say something about my height!” Ed shouted
“No, now Ed, here this came in this morning for you,” the man said smiling as he handed the letter to Ed. “Have a good day! You to Al!” he shouted as he walked away.
“Thanks, you to!” Al shouted back. He had been silent through the whole argument between Roy and his brother. Al was younger then Ed, but he was taller then his brother. Actually, Al wasn’t even human anymore; instead he was a huge suit of armor. When an alchemic experiment went wrong, Al lost his body while Ed lost his right arm and left leg. Ed became a State Alchemist to get their bodies back to normal.
“What does it say?” Al asked.
“Lets see….” Ed replied as he opened the telegram. “ Dear boys, it’s been a while since I last heard from you guys. I haven’t seen you in three years, man that’s a long time. Because of this, I have decided to come to Central for a visit. My train arrives at 9:30 am Saturday. I can’t wait to see you. Love, Winry R “
Winry is coming here! To see us!” Al exclaimed.
“It looks that way.”
“One thing boys…” Roy interrupted. Both boys jumped, they had completely forgotten he was there. Roy continued, “ Where is she going to stay?”
“ That’s right brother, we don’t have enough money for another room at the inn,” Al said sounding worried.
“Hmmm…. let me think…Oh, I got it! Colonel, where is Lieutenant Colonel Hughes ?” Ed asked.
“I think he is out getting lunch.”
“Thanks! Come on Al we have to go,” Ed said as he hurried off, his brother right behind him.
Hughes , as always, was out showing the photo of his 3-year-old daughter to anyone who was around.
“Lieutenant Colonel Hughes ?” Al said as he ran past. “Um… Lieutenant Colonel Hughes …. Um excuse me? Could you stop running…Hello?”
“LIEUTENANT COLONEL!” Ed shouted! Hughes stopped dead and turned to face them.
“Oh, hello boys. What can I do for you?” Hughes asked.
Um…we need a favor,” Ed replied.
“Ok…. what is it?”
“ Do you remember a girl who came about three years ago? She got herself kidnapped by that serial killer.”
“Oh yea, the blond who loved mechanics right?”
“Yea, well she’s coming to visit tomorrow, and we don’t have enough money to get another room at the inn. So we were wondering if maybe we could stay with you until she leaves?” Ed explained.
“ All three of you…Sure, I don’t have a problem with that.”
“Thanks so much!” both boys exclaimed.
At exactly 9:30 the south train pulled into Central Station. Hughes, Ed, and Al had been waiting since 9:00 incase the train was early. Al was sitting on a bench with his brother lying beside him almost asleep. Ed, for some reason, could not get to sleep the night before. He had a lot on his mind, not only was he excited about Winry coming to visit but also he was worried because Lust, with her little gang, and Scar were still after him. Hughes was standing beside the bench keeping a look out for Winry, although he did not remember quite what she looked like.
“There she is! Look brother it’s Winry,” Al said as he jumped up waking Ed with a start.
A tall, skinny girl had gotten off the train. She was wearing a black skirt that was about 4 or 5 inches above her knees, a baby blue tank top, and a blue jacket that was hanging over her arm. She was holding a medium size brown suitcase that, by the looks of it, seemed heavy. When Ed saw her his heart started to go nuts. Beating so fast, he felt like it was going to burst out of his chest.
‘What the hell is going on’ Ed thought nervously, but then he decided to dismiss it. ‘ It was probably just those strange eggs I had for breakfast this morning.’
“Hey boys!” Winry yelled as she tried to wave, but she almost dropped her suitcase on her foot.
“Here let me get that,” Al said as he ran up to help her.
“Thanks Al! How are you?”
“That’s good!” Winry said with a smile.
‘That smile…’Ed thought, ‘ Wait what the hell is wrong with me! It has got to be because I’m so damn tired. Yea that’s it, I’m just tired.’
“Hey Ed” Winry said as she reached him.
Ed jumped, he was thinking way too much for a change. He hadn’t even noticed she made her way over to him.
“Hey Winry!” Ed said when he came out of his daze.
“So…what ya thinkin about?” Winry asked.
“Oh come on, you can tell me.”
“No, it’s nothing.”
“Come on you three. The wife is at home with breakfast,” Hughes called to them as he was walking away.
“Great I’m so starved!” Winry said following him.
“So…brother, what were you thinking about?” Al asked a little concerned.
“Hey slowpokes I’m starving can we pick up the pace!” Winry yelled to them.
“Coming” both boys yelled as they started to run toward her.
