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.

Not like this.

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top.

Grapes Are Juicy yes!!!: I give this novel FIVE STARS ! This novel is worth reading from the beginning to the end! The plot and conflicts in this story are very smartly integrated.
