It was a stormy night out of central. People were rushing inside to aviod the rain pouring down in buckets. The wind was brewing so hard it raddled windows on buildings. No one wanted to be outside during this time.
Out on a street counter a girl sits. She is sitting crisscrossed with her legs pulled near her. Her messy dark brown hair dangled out of the blanket in which she used to cover herself with. The clothes shown ware and tare. The girl wore a tan shirt with the sleeves ripped off. The shorts were 2 inches above her knees. The shirt cut off in a diagonal showing her side abit. The shorts were also a tan color. She had light brown eyes with a hint of caramel color next to her pupil. She then stood up weakly. One foot at a time she headed for the exit out of central.
The Elric brothers were heading back to Central from a mission they had just completed. They were tired. Edwards stomach could be heard from a mile away. " Hey Al, we have to find something to eat I am starving..." Alphonse walked next to his brother eager to head inside. "Okay brother." "We can stop inside somewhere to eat if you want to." Edward's face light up at the sound of that. "Hey thats a great idea Alphonse!" Edward then checked his pockets for money. He emptied his pockets to find nothing inside. Both brothers just groaned.
As they walked inside the central building, they noticed people rushing out. "What in the world are they rushing out for?" Alphonse questioned. Edward just smirked. "Who cares Al!" "I been wanting to brag in Mustangs face all day!" "We completed that mission when he said it would be too much for us to handle!" Edward was laughing up a storm. Edward was about to open the door when Mustang opened it. "I am guessing you succeed in the mission.." Edward smirked. "You bet!" "That was not very hard to handle..." Mustang shoke his head. "You two did not complete the mission" Edward looked shocked. "I made sure that the borders were all sealed up!!" Mustang then crossed his arms. "You did not seal up all the areas Full Metal." "I had to send more alchemists to go back to finish what you started..." Edward had already began walking off. " What nerve..." "I cant believe this Al!!" "Can you!?" Alphonse just continued walking shaking his head. "I thought we sealed the pathways too brother,but I guess we missed some..." "I Told you to go back and check on it..." Edward then got frustrated. "I did Al!"
Two hours had gone by since they talked to Mustang. Edward was now stuffing his face with food. Alphonse was sitting at the table watching his brother eat. "Something does not seem right brother..." Edward then swallowed. "Tell me about it!" " I am so sure I went back to seal the roads!" "I even fixed some of them!" Alphonse just sat in thought. Edward went back to stuffing his face.
It was now 9pm. The Elric brothers were getting ready to get a good rest. Tomorrow, they will continue on their journey as state alchemists. "Goodnight Al..." Edward began climbing into bed. "Goodnight brother." Alphonse sat against the wall. He soon closed his eyes. Edward then shifted into a comfortable position. "Hey Alphonse..." Alphonse then shifted his head up when he heard his brothers voice. "Yes brother?" Edward was starring at the ceiling while he talked. "Did we get all the supplies?" "Ya know for tonight?" "The storm is supposed to hit us soon..." Before Alphonse could respond they heard voices outside. Alphonse got up and looked outside the window. "Hey brother..." "Some cops are cornering this girl...." Edward then got out of bed. "What?.."
The girl was fighting to get away from the cops. The cops constantly yelled at her in a not so nice tone. "You stupid girl!" "Why don't you talk!!!" the girl slowly backed up holding her arm. She shoke because she was cold. It was still raining pretty hard. The cops then started to walk toward her again. The girl then got frightened. She took off running from them as fast as she could. "After her!!" " DO not let her escape!" "We need answers from her!" Edward then was putting on his jacket. "Where are you going brother?" Edward was already at the room door. "Out." "I wont let them harass some little girl like that." He then ran out. "Ed!" "Wait!" Alphonse rushed after him close behind.
