I own nothing from FMA, including the cover image.

Please review :)

Water is flowing down my face from my one eye.

"E-Ed?" I whisper from my place against the support column.

He's lying on the floor, Envy hovering over him. Blood pooling around him.

"Brother?" Al calls from his place on the floor.

"ED!" I scream.

I can see from here that his eyes are open and unblinking.

No, No it can't be, it's wrong... This is wrong, he can't be dead... we're not done yet... We don't have our bodies yet, Al doesn't have his body back yet...

Envy is cackling evilly while staring at his blood-stained hands. They're stained from Ed's blood.

My brother's blood.

"YOU SON OF A BITCH!" I scream, transmuting my arm into a long, gleaming sword.

I pull myself to my feet, well foot. The auto mail one is pretty much disintegrated.

Using every ounce of my strength, I hurl myself at Envy, pointing my sword right in front of me.

It's on a collision course with his abdomen. Pulling myself a little farther, the tip hits his back.

I push one last time, shoving the tip through his back until it exits through his chest.

Red blood flows from the wound, leaking onto me and Ed's unmoving body.

As soon as I realize this, I pull Envy's body away from Ed's and push him off my arm. Letting it turn back into my arm.

It's no longer grey, but red.

But I'll take care of that later.

I run back to Ed, the blood pool around him is almost a foot wide now.

I grab his shoulders and gently shake.

"Ed? Ed you've gotta wake up... You can't leave us... We still need to get our bodies back... Come on Ed..." Tears now cloud the vision of my only eye, even soaking my eye-patch on the left side of my face.

"Em? Is he okay?" Al asks from the floor about 20 yards away.

My hands are drenched in blood, as are my legs from kneeling near Ed.

"No Al. He's gone, he left us..." I say softly. My sobs trying to stop me from speaking altogether.

I hear sobs from Al's direction too. I know he can't cry... but he sure sounds like it.

I hug myself, closing my eyes so I don't see the horrible, bloody, lifeless figure that is my brother.

I stand in front of the grave. Staring at it.

RIP Edward Elric, RIP Edward Elric, RIP Edward Elric

I read it over and over again.

This is a nightmare. This is all a dream, when I wake up, Al will have his body back, I'll have my eye and limbs and Ed will have his limbs and we'll have gotten rid of those horrible state watches we have.

Al stands next to me, the armor almost seems to be rusting since that fight...

The fight Ed lost...

"What are we gonna do now Em?" Al asks.

"I... I don't know Al... I just don't know... Why are you asking me anyway? You're three years older than me! I'm only 12!"

"Then why are you the one who's in the military?" He asks, I'm sure he'd be raising an eyebrow if he had any.

"Because you didn't want to, plus your just a suit of armor and that would eventually come to light." I reason, my vision is going foggy again.

Mustang left about two hours ago, along with Hawkeye and Armstrong, but our guards insisted on staying. On not leaving us alone, on interrupting our peace.

"Ed... Ed I'm sorry I screwed up... This is my fault... I'll finish this, I promise I'll get Al's body back..." I whisper under my breath. Just quiet enough so no one around me will hear.

I almost hear whispers.

I trust you... Take care of things... Punch that Colonel bastard okay?

The last one puts a tiny smile on my face.

"I love you Ed..."

I love you too Em...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them. Abby and Kade's story is a hard one to understand but once you're submerged in their story and love, you can't help but...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

allisonflin: Without a doubt the most well written story that I have read on this site. Informative, discriptive, well punctuated. Then we have the story itself, which by the way I am waiting on the edge of my seat for part two of, the characters are more than likeable, you feel them and their emotions...

christylynnr5: This was a really good book. I couldn't stop reading it. I loved how the story had its ups and downs and it kept you on the edge of your seat.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections.
