I do not own the awesome that is Hunter x Hunter, nor do I own FMA. I own my OC, Emily Elric. I also do not own the cover image.

Enjoy!

I can't die today.

I can't die today.

Not today.

Not before I find a way to open the gate.

Not before I make that damn Hunter exam worth it.

Not before I get to say goodbye to Gon, and Killua, and Kurapika, and Leorio.

Not before I see Ed and Al again.

Not before I tell them I'm sorry.

I hear a gunshot. I feel a sudden pain in my right leg. I fall.

Of course it hit my right leg.

The flesh one.

My pursuer looms over me. He has the skin of a lion. He's dressed like a slacker and he's holding a pistol.

He's laughing.

At me.

He licks his lips.

I clap my hands and slam them on the ground, creating a wall between us.

He looks shocked, before he just climbs over it.

"And how did you do that?" He asks.

I don't answer.

I won't answer.

I slowly back up, trying to ignore the throbbing pain in my leg.

He points the gun at my stomach and pulls the trigger.

The pain I was already feeling triples. Easy.

But I can't die.

I won't die.

Not today.

Not like this.

Then he does one of the last things I expected him to do.

He kneels down, takes my shoe off my right foot, and bites into me.

I resist an immediate urge to scream my goddamn lungs out once my foot is in his stomach.

I can feel myself bleeding out. Hell, I'm surprised I'm not already blacked out.

But I can't... I don't want to die.

I'm... sorry Ed, Al, Gon, Killua, Kurapika, Leorio...

I'm sorry I couldn't say goodbye.

I don't want to die.

Not today.

Very good overall!!
