What lengths will Ed go to in order to find Winry?
I'd really like some feedback to see whether or not this is good. Other than that, continue
The stranger's red coat swayed back and forth as she entered the train. She
took her seat.
"NEXT STOP, LIOR!" The train conductor announced. The stranger smiled. Now I
can find some evidence, evidence to the murder.
"There's no reason for her to do it.. Was it for her parents?" Ed struck.
Armstrong looked to the desk. Blood was smeared across it too. He shook his head. "She even
knew what would happen to her!" Ed sobbed. He collapsed on her bed.
"Well, there's only one thing left to do." Ed looked up. Gran bit down on
her pipe. She pointed to him. "You go find that girl and bring her back." Al stood up. He
clenched his fist.
"You're right! Brother, we have to find her!" Ed smiled faintly. "Fine. But
when we find her, no sappy reunions, we drill her for answers." Al nodded. Armstrong smiled.
"I can see I am no longer needed. But I must know where you two are headed."
Edward immediately frowned. She could be anywhere in all of Amestress! How am
I supposed to know where she is?
"Why don't we just start from the beginning? Let's go to Lior." Ed shrugged.
"I suppose we could. I'd like to see what happened of it after we exposed that fraud." He
smiled. Gran exited the room.
"Just make sure you find her." She chuckled. Armstrong ripped off his shirt.
Not again. Ed thought. "And I will stay here to assist Mrs.Rockbell with cleaning!" Ed ran
out. "Sure, thanks, Major!" Al clanked after him.
"Train boarding for Lior!" Ed smiled broadly. "I sure hope she's here,
brother!" Al laughed. Ed nodded. They found their way to a seat.
"Do you think she's here?" Ed shrugged. "It's a possibility." He looked at
the people walking onto the train. There were so many. The truth is, this is a one in a
million shot, Al. If she wanted, she could stay hidden forever. But that can't happen, we've
got to find her!
The red stranger breathed quickly in and out. Her cloak didn't even help the
scorching sun. "HELP! Someone HELP!" The stranger whipped to the side. The sounds of gunfire
and screaming could be heard everywhere. From the dark confines of her cloak she could see a
small child and mother surrounded by officers of the military. They held their guns to the
They're innocent! They have nothing to do with this rebellion! She angrily
thought as she ran over. She clapped her and pressed the ground.
A stray bullet flew straight towards the child's head. A slight ringing was
in the air. Before it had a chance to draw any blood, the bullet was blocked by a giant
hand. It whipped forward and pinned the corrupt soldiers to the ground. they struggled to
lift their guns.
"THIS IS TRAITOROUS, EDWARD ELRIC!" One of them yelled. The stranger smiled.
"I think of this as patriotism." She quickly turned away. The civilians stared in shock.
The red hooded stranger stopped.
"You should get going, they could wiggle out at any time and kill you." The
mother quickly nodded. She pushed her child the pathway she had paved in her mind. The
"Just a battlefield here. No evidence to be found." She walked towards the
train station and to the ticket booth. "One ticket to central, please."
"What..?" Edward looked around the sight. Buildings were in ruins, blood was
smeared on the ground. Soldiers walked along the rubble.
"I thought we saved this place! What happened!?" Al shook his head. "Another
massacre." He sobbed. Edward dropped his suitcase. He ran towards the town square. There was
no more wine in the fountain. It was wrecked beyond recognition.
"ELRIC!" The boy turned. An angry soldier came bounding from the hill. "What do you want?" Ed sighed. He seemed to be awfully angry about something. Was his coffee too hot? Ed snickered.
The man stopped. "Edward Elric, you are hereby arrested for actions against the military." Metal cuffs were slapped onto his hands. They dug into his wrists.
"What the hell did I do!?" He demanded. The officer dragged him away. "Oh, playing innocent, are we? We have eye-witness accounts of you pinning officers into the ground in order to let the rebels escape. There's no way out of this for you."
Al was left standing alone. He had a sinking feeling. One problem after another. When will we find Winry?
