On the Spot
Roy had originally planned his whole proposal to Riza out. It was going to be a lovely event for both of them, and something that they would remember for years afterwards. Of course, it didn't work out that way. Roy didn't even have a chance to implement his plan for the proposal. Instead, he ended up proposing to Riza when he was exhausted and hungry. They had been on their way home from a meeting in Central with the Fuhrer.
It had been a grueling three days of non-stop meetings. It didn't help that not all of Roy's ideas and plans for restoring Ishval weren't popular. They both had been tired by the time they got on the train to head back to East City. In fact, they'd had a hassle just getting on the train. Or at least Riza had. Some idiot had been hitting on her and hadn't wanted to take no for an answer. The man had even had the gall to point out that Riza wasn't wearing a wedding ring or anything like that. Riza had threatened the man with her gun. Roy thought that was a fine idea.
But the whole thing had bothered him to an extent, and quite honestly, the idea of marrying Riza had been more and more on his mind lately. True, he hadn't completely reached his goals yet, but the situation had changed quite a bit. Besides, he knew that Fuhrer Grumman would support the idea. The two of them had made it to their train compartment, and Riza had settled into the seat beside him with a soft sigh. Roy reached for her hand.
"How would you feel about making this permanent?"
Riza blinked at him. "Making what permanent?"
She gave him that look she typically used when he was messing around the office. "Roy Mustang, are you trying to ask me to marry you?"
He shifted uncomfortably. "Yes?"
Riza sighed, but her face softened into a smile, and she leaned in to kiss him. "You're an idiot, sir. Yes."
Roy had the feeling he was grinning like a fool. He actually did have an engagement ring for her, but he hadn't thought to bring it with him. He improvised with a gold thread off his uniform. Riza called him an idiot again, but she had said yes, and that was really what was important.
