Devon: Hey, guys. I'm so so so sorry i haven't updaated in a while! My computers, and teachers, hate me! My brithday was the 8th, which happened to be durring spring break, so instead of writing fanfics and my books and reading and watching anime like a lazy bum for a week, I was getting the house ready for a week along with going and/or having three different birthday parties, and helping my family do shopping. (We have like I think around 19 or 20 birthdyas in April alone) I'm really sorry it took this long but pleaase forgive me!
Warnings: Might not make much sense. I apologize, like gluttony sloth is hard to mix in there!
Disclaimer: Yeah, cause I totally oen Fullmtal Alchemist. Not!
"Edward is always sleeping." Winry giggled, watching the young alchemist, passed out on her couch.
"Yeah, with his stomach out." The human, Al grumbled, still having to take care of his older brother after all these years. He threw a blanket over the sleeping boy and marched outside grumpily. Winry shook her head, wondering what could of gotten into Alphonse as of lately.
"Oh, Winry?" Lexie Elric, the boy's older sister from the other side of the gate, called gracefully sailing down the stairs. The mechanic, turned away from the sleeping boy to look at her hypeithetical sister.
"Yes, Lexie?"She questioned, watching as the small girl seemed to float through the room, picking things up here and there.
"Alphonse and I are running to the market, I hope you don't mind watching our darling brother while we're gone." Lexie said, playfulness dripping from her words, as she winked at the flushing blonde, knowing fully well thata watching her 'darling brother' was just what Winry was planing to do, wether, Lexie and Alphonse left or not. Winry cocked her head at the oldest Elric child.
"But Lexie, didn't Grranny go to the market already? Why would you and Alphonse go?" Winry questioned. A mistevious look glinted in the gold eyes of the older girl.
"Granny went to the market forr mechanics things,' Lexie saiad waving her question off. "I'm going for food, and Alponse, is going for something...else." Lexie replied, winking at the girl, before an evil smirk slithered it's way onto the girl's pale face. "Of course, I just figured you would want to stay with Edward, unless there's something you'd rather do?"
"Oh, of course not, I'm fine here I was just wondering and I mean don't take that the wrong way...agh." Winry said flabergasted, giving up. She quickly shot a look aat the boy next to her, making sure he was still a sleep. He rolled over, contently in his slumber, reassuring the girl. She sighed relaxing slightly.
"Sure, sure whatever you say Winry dear, just don't hurt yourself with your lies." Lexie said smiling sweetly at the girl before leaving the house, and yelling at Alphonse. But not before flicking her younger broher on the nose, waking him up, as she disappeared.
"That's girl's gonna be the death of me." Winry mused, turrning around and gasping, Edward was stretching, the blanket at his feet. Winry's sky blue eyes grew wide in shock. 'Oh no, how much did he hear?' she thought, immediatley fretting that her cover, not very good cover might I add, was blown.
"E-Edward?" she asked nervously. The boy snorted, lowering his arms, before reaching up again anad running one of them through his hair. Winry couldn't help but scan over his toned body. 'Maybe Al was right. He probabaly should put a shirt on. For his sake...and mine.'
"Well, who else would I be?" The cocky alchemist, asked, throwing her a lopsided grin, before going to the kitchen to get something to drink. "Is Granny back from the market yet?" he asked, taking a drink. Winry shook her head, ploping down on to the couch.
"Nope, and Lexie and Al just left to the mrket for some reason." she replied. And then like those classic spit-takes that everyone loves, and that looks almost planned, Edward spit out his water, spraying it all over the un-expecting Den. After recieving a glare from the now, drenched dog, he had a sudden flash back of when he sprayed tea all over Lt. Riza Hawkeye's dog Hayate, after she mentioned his love for Winry. Obviously that little flash back didn't help anything, as he felt his face flsuh.
"Damn them. Why now? I'm not ready!" Edward thought, or he thought he did. Unfourunatley for him, he said it out loud.
"Damn who? What are you talking about? What aren't you ready for?" Winry asked curiously.
"Dammit." Edward muttered. "Um..nothing I'm going to take a shower." The blonde alchemist said rushing up the stairs, to avoid further questioning. the blonde mechanic shook her head, wondering what had gotten into her childhood frriend, before going to her room to work on his latest arm and leg. The thought that it wasn't what but Who, specifically a spunky blonde country mechanic, that had gotten into Edward, and under his skin, never crossed her mind. No matter how much of a truth it was.
O.o o.O O.o o.O O.o o.O
"Edward?" Winry asked, cautiously, cracking open the boys' room, to find a sleeping form on the bed, two hours later. He was, onnce again, dressed in only his boxers, with his still damp hair, spread around him. The young woman snuck closer to her sleeping childhood friend, watching his chest rise and fall. The pale scars and bruises covered most of his toned body, and she couldn't help thinking that he worked too hard and wished he would quit wearing himself out so much. Lowering herself onto his small bed, and sliding a hand over to cup hhis cheek, she couldn't help but blush when he nuzzuled into her hand, welcoming her touch. "Oh Edward if you only knew." she whispered, watching his parrtly open lips, and then scanning over the rest of his content, peacful face before her gaze landed on his lips once again. Then, defore she lost the nerrve, she kissed him. It was meant to be quick, and gentle, just to calm her, to satisfy her want to kiss him, if even by a little but it turned into something more. On contact, the young alchemist laying in the bed, immediately woke up, his eyes flying open before shuttng once again, enjoying the feelng. Without warninng, he reached up, cupping the back of the woman, who was kissing him's, head and pushing his lips to her's more. The taste, the feel, it was better than he would even of imagined. A surprise, squeak came form Winry, not expecting the gentle hands of the object of her love holding her, or the gentle caress of his lips as he kissed her back. Once they pulled away, both young adults blushing furiously, Edward inched himself into a sitting position, watching as Winry's talented fingers dance lightly over her light pink lips. She quickly turned to Edward, blue eyes wide.
"Why?" she whispered, afraid of the answer. Figuring it would be something like. 'It ws on accident' or 'It was just an impulse' or something stupid like that. To her surprise, and delight, and Edward's embarrasment, she got much more.
"That's what I wasn't ready for. I wanted to tell you seomthing. For the longest time." He muttered, looking down on to the bed, where his human hand was tracing lines over the palm of Winry's hand. "So, then when you kissed me, or at lest that's what I figurried you were doing when I woke up. i just kind of...kissed back." he said with a shrug of one shoulder.
"You wanted to...tell me something Edward?" Winrny asked, nervously, tilting her head to the side, and leaning closer to him. Edward, immediatley flushed and turned his head away.
"Um..yeah. You see...I guess I rrealized it a few times but never had the courage to tell you. Once when I saw you holding the gun at Scar, once when I thought you were dead, or going to be dead, and once when I thought I would never see you again. I wanted to say..Um..."
"Yes?" Edward sighed, turning to look her in the eye, both of them having trouble looking eachh other rrigt in the eye, but finding it impossible to look a way.
"I wanted to say that I love you." He said quitely, and Winry couldn't help but grin, and crush his lips against her own.
"You have no idead how much trouble you just saved me." She gigled against his lips, and for once, when he wasn't asleep. Edward relaxed in her arms, wrapping his arms around her tightly.
o.O O.o o.O O.o o.O O.o
"Lexie didn't you tell Winry to tell Edward that dinner waas ready?" Alphonse askled from the kitchen as he set the table. Lexie grinnend from on the couch as Pinako was taking measurments for her arm and leg.
"Don't fret Al, they'll be down when they're ready." She said, sharing a knowing look with her hypetetical Grandmother. "When they're ready."
