A/N: Wow, I've been on a writing frenzy lately! X3 Hope you enjoy! By the way, this takes place at least four months after the movie :)
The morning was just beginning.
And, in the middle of the town square, lay two bodies.
One lay on his stomach as the other lay on his back.
The one on his back had bronze hair, was wearing a long red coat over black clothes. A hand was over his stomach and the other was at his side. His breathing was steady but nervous as well.
The one on his stomach had golden hair tied back in a high ponytail, was wearing a white button-up shirt with a brown vest over that and matching brown pants and shoes. One hand was next to his face as the other was to his side. His breathing was like that of the body next to him.
Had anyone been walking around, they could easily tell that these were the legendary Elric brother's.
How they had gotten there, no one could tell. Nor did the two brothers' know; then again, they didn't even know they were in the middle of the street of Central's town square.
Suddenly, the elder Elric began shifting painfully. The hand at the side of his face moved into a fist and he forced his other hand to his side as well. Slowly and carefully, he forced himself to his knees, bringing a hand to his slightly sore head.
He shrugged and growled excruciatingly. "Ouch" he muttered. He looked up to investigate his surroundings. The eighteen year-old then looked to his right and his widened at the sight before him; it was Central's Military Base.
"It…it can't be" he mumbled nervously. Quickly, he looked around for his brother and found him lying next to him.
Hastily, he placed a hand on the younger Elric's shoulder and began shaking him gently. "Al, wake up!" he demanded.
Al smiled and turned over on his side. "Why I'd love another cookie, thank you" he mumbled contently. (A/N: I couldn't resist! X3)
Ed's eyes widened, surprised at his younger brother. He shook his head and forced Al in his back once more. Then he grabbed the younger by the collar of his shirt and pulled him in front of him. "Al, wake up! This is serious!" he ordered once more, slapping Al across the face with his flesh hand.
Al immediately woke up and looked around. "What the hell? What happened?" he asked nervously and then looked up at his glaring brother. "Brother? What happened?" he asked curiously.
"We're in Central, that's what happened!" Ed replied heatedly.
"What!?" Al asked, obviously shocked.
Ed let Al go and stood up. "Look for yourself" he commanded as he looked to the Military Base once more.
The younger Elric sat up and looked to the base. His eyes widened anxiously.
Ed then looked back to Al. "What did you do, Al?" he bravely accused his younger sibling.
"Me!? What the heck are you talking about, I didn't do anything!" Al pointed out.
"And, what, you think it was me!?" Ed asked as he offered his hand to Al.
The younger Elric gave him an annoyed look and responded as Ed helped him to his feet. "Well, who else would it be!?" he asked him.
"I don't know! But it wasn't me!" Ed explained s he looked back to the Military Base.
Al sighed. "It doesn't matter; obviously we were brought back and we should just be grateful and take advantage" he told his brother.
"How?" Ed asked incredulously as he looked, once again, to his sibling.
"Uh, going back home!" Al replied as if it were the most obvious thing in the world. "You know, I'm sure Winry would be happy to see us" he explained.
Ed's eyes widened at the mention of the Rockbell mechanic. "No!" he replied finally.
"What? Have you lost your mind, why not?" the younger Elric asked, skeptically, as he crossed his arms.
"Winry doesn't have to know anything and neither does anyone else!" Ed replied.
Al looked at him curiously. "What…what do you mean?" he asked inquisitively.
"No one will know; it'll be as if we never came back to this world" Ed replied. "We'll change our identities completely and no one will know; especially not Winry" he explained.
Al's eyes saddened. "But…why not?" he asked sadly; obviously he had been excited about seeing Winry again.
"It's complicated, Al" Ed explained plainly. "C'mon, I'm sure people are about to start waking up; we should get started on changing our identities" he said and began walking off.
Al had a bad feeling in the pit of his stomach but went along with it, anxiously, and followed his elder brother, unsure of what would happen next.
Later that day, two young men boarded a train headed for Resembol.
One of them had dark, but not black, hair tied back in a low ponytail and a pair of hazel eyes. He was wearing an olive-green button-up shirt with brown pants and shoes. His name was Devon Hanson, a.k.a. Alphonse Elric.
The other had black hair, loosened completely, and darker hazel eyes. He was wearing a white button-up shirt with a black vest over that and black pants and shoes. His name was Jack Hanson, a.k.a Edward Elric.
The two sat down at the nearest booth and awaited the train's departure.
"Jack?" Devon asked, feeling rather strange calling his brother by another name.
'Jack' shrugged, indicating 'Devon' speak.
"Why Resembol?" Devon asked.
"Because" Jack began. "If we're back, we might as well live in our hometown" he explained.
"But, what about Winry?" Devon asked curiously.
Jack shrugged, somewhat sadly.
"We stay as far away from her as possible"
A/N: Tell me what you think, guys! I need to know whether or not I should continue this! So, go ahead, R&R, please!
By the way, Ed and Al will be going under those names; even when, for example, as you just saw it:
"What?" Jack asked.
That is how it will be; I don't want to confuse anyone so I decided with it to be like that, so make sure to memorize which name goes with whom! Unless they reveal themselves (which is for me to know and you guys to find out X3) would be the only time it would change :) Again, please R&R, constructive criticism, no flames :) thanks!
By the way, this will be an EdWin fic ;) I know it doesn't show too much now, but it will! ;)
