Edward hopped from building top to building top chasing after a malevolent troublemaker whom repeatedly brought havoc to a small town located in central. A chilling breeze blowing through the alchemist's golden locks as he dashed after the reported criminal, a deviant smirk graced his visage.
As he jumped from a roof and landed roughly on the pavement with his two feet, the aforementioned smirk that stretched across the teenager's tiers etched further and he'd laugh tauntingly at the offender. "Now I've got you!" Edward exclaimed clapping his gloved hands together.
A blue spark ignited and thin shrieks of electricity flashed as he transmutated a weapon; a metal staff to be exact. Holding the narrow piece of weaponry firmly betwixt slender digits the young state alchemist charged toward his opponent.
Screaming whilst impulsively rushing the fleeing ravenette running ahead the blonde failed to notice a steppingstone in his path and tripped up. The staff was ripped from Edward's grasp and lunged high into the air before descending with great speed, embedding itself in the concrete and nearly piercing a hole through Edward where he fell and he screamed.
Amber eyes now filling with sorrow after his attention fixed on the escaping man whom looked back to him with a grin, audible cries of frustration was heard from the alchemist. Edward's raging was short lived when a [hair color]-haired girl came running up, [color] eyes filled with anger.
"I told you...to wait up!" You panted out through short breaths. "What the hell?!" You shrieked. The blonde looked up at you from the ground and flashed you an apologetic smile, laughing nervously at the furiousness glossing over your expression. "Heh...sorry about that." He meekly apologized.
With a little to no effort you grabbed the transmutated staff by the handle and snatched it out the pavement. The sharp tip running dangerously close to Edward's face as it swiftly detached from the ground made the alchemist yelp. You rolled your eyes at him and tossed the piece of scrap to the side.
"Get up." you huffed, "It's bad enough you let him get away. Can't wait to tell Colonel Mustang that's another mission failed." Edward scoffed at your remark upon rising and dusted himself off. "Well it isn't my fault," he grumbled. "Maybe if you would've kept up with me he wouldn't have gotten anywhere! So it's your fault too!"
"Like hell it is!" You argued stomping your foot down. "Okay okay how about this," Edward said with a bittersweet sigh. "What if we lie and tell Mustang we were ambushed and–"
"There's no way in hell I'm lying to the Colonel." You hissed cutting him off.
The alchemist looked to you with a stale expression. "...Fine," Edward groaned after a hesitant pause. You smirked a bit at his response. "But what are we gonna tell him?" He questioned. "The truth." You reply bitterly. He rolled his eyes but nodded in an obliged agreement. The two of you then trailed off to report.
[Small time skip.]
Not long after arriving had you and Edward stood before the colonel, heads lowered and eyes closed in shame. "WHAT THE HELL DO YOU MEAN 'HE GOT AWAY'?!" Mustang barked. A small silence was shared. "I'm sorry..." Edward grumbled. The colonel slammed his hands on the desk as he stood. "DO YOU THINK SORRY IS GOING TO STOP THAT SCUMBAG?!"
Another silence was present.
An audible growl elicits the colonel and his eyebrow twitched in irritation at the two unresponsive alchemists peering ostensibly hushed in front him. "ANSWER ME GODDAMMIT! Do you think a pathetic little sorry will stop this bastard from raising hell wherever he goes?!"
"NO COLONEL MUSTANG SIR!" You and Edward shouted simultaneously. You as well the blonde could feel the harsh stare of the colonel, his nearly black eyes glaring daggers at you. [Color] hues trailing over toward the moderately shorter male, you inwardly frowned at the sight of the alchemist shaking with clenched fists.
Subsequently displaying disgust with aforementioned events prior to your shared return, both you and Edward were sent home. The day was still young and it was only mid-noon, nearing the evening hours. Walking along the dusty trail leading up to Edward's shared home with you, Winry and Al, the blonde sighed.
Arms held behind his head as golden eyes gazed up at the sky that was slowly painted over with pink, yellow and orange, you heard Edward sigh. Quirking an eyebrow, you blinked at the alchemist before asking: "what's wrong?" to which you received a confused expression in response. You repeated your inquiry and Edward shook his head.
"Nothing." he replied with a shrugging walking up the way. You were disbelieving of his response but dismissed the concern. Approaching the door, you stopped and knocked and received a rather fast answer. "who is it?" Came a familiar voice. "It's me!" You shouted.
"It's me who?" The voice replied.
"Will you just open the damn door Alphonse? It's me and [name]!" Edward seethed banging on the wooden frame twice. "Jesus Edward, no need to be rude..." You grumbled as the door opened. He looked at you and shrugged his shoulders. Rolling your eyes you pushed past the blonde and flashed Alphonse a short lived smile showing thanks.
He nodded and turned to Edward then smiled himself. "I'm glad you're finally back, brother." Alphonse greets. "Thanks," Edward replied dryly and brushed past him to follow you to the back. The younger blonde showed a perplexed mien upon shutting the door behind you and his brother. "That was weird, but okay..."
You and Edward sat alone with one another in his room. Edward had his nose buried in a book and you were sitting in bed, on your phone and scrolling through social media. As always nothing interesting. Your attention shifting toward the alchemist acquiring knowledge of the Philosopher's Stone, you sighed.
Edward gave no response. Frowning at him, you sighed again, but louder. Still no response. Third sigh around, the blonde looked up and turned back to you. "What?" He asked frowning some himself. You gave him an insincere smile. "Nothing." You beamed with a toothy gesture.
In disbelief the alchemist rose and walked over to you.
"Tell me what's wrong." He ordered. You stuck your tongue out at him like a child and he huffed. Placing one knee at the edge of the bed as be crawled onto the sheets, Edward narrowed his eyes at you. "I said, tell me what's wrong."
"Or what?" You snapped back.
He grinned at your sassiness. "Or this." Edward muttered crawling closer and pulled you in for a kiss. Astonished by his actions you froze in place with wide eyes. Melting into his gentle touch, feeling his tongue glide along the surface of your lip asking for entrance, you closed your eyes and granted access.
A pleasured moan was sound and the alchemist snaked his arms around your waist, gently shoving you into the bed while you wrapped your appendages around his neck. Smiling up at the blonde, you made a pouting face. "I hate you." You grumbled and received an amused smirk. "Oh yeah? Well I love you too."
