The train had just pulled up to Resembool and Ed came out carrying his automail arm, followed by Al, "Look brother it's snowing!" It had been almost forever since the last time Al and Ed saw snow in Resembool, "Yeah! Remember that winter when we had that big snow ball fight?"
"Yeah that was fun, and you kept getting mad at Winry because she had such good aim"
"Yeah haha", Ed said this with pinkish color overcoming his face while scratching the back of his head. The two brothers walk down the road as they see the Rockbell house. The snow is now coming down even harder as Al and Ed rushed out of the cold and up the porch of the house. They give a knock on the door and wait a couple seconds. "Who could that be it is freezing cold outside", follows the knock. Winry opens the door to see an armless Ed, and Al standing next to him. Out of anger in seeing Ed's automail arm in his hand she throws a wrench dead center of his forehead. "Ed! What the hell happened, and don't tell me you were doing reckless stuff again!"
"No no I can explain", Ed says recovering from the hit, "Listen I was walking in central when… well when"
"When what Ed?"
"Well… I kind of ran into Scar"
"YOU WHAT!" Winry shouted with another blow to the head. After hitting him she walked away to her desk. Edward got up and didn't bother to argue with that one cause he knew she was right in doing that. The two brothers walk into the warm house, they both great Pinako with a hello. Edward walks over to Winry at her desk and puts down the arm, "Listen Win, I really am sorry I did that. I and Al were going to the library to see if we can find anything on alcehestery, but on our way we ran into scar and well… but we tried to make it quick really."
"Well at least you guys weren't going and looking for trouble."
"Well yeah. So he pretty much just ripped it off"
"Yeah I could see that. I'll have to make a new one from scratch; it'll take about three days."
"REALLY! Winry you're amazing!" Ed says while giving her a one armed hug. Ed heads to his room with his bags and gets settled. "Boys get in here!" Pinako says yelling from downstairs. The boys walk down the steps to find Pinako getting several layers of jackets on, "Are you planning on going somewhere gran?" Winry said walking in the door. "Yes, I need to go to town and get a tree for Christmas."
"Oh yeah that's right Christmas is this Friday." Ed says in reply, "Yeah are you guys going to be staying for Christmas?" Winry gives him her famous puppy dog stare. Ed scratches his head and looks down to escape the memorizing stare, and then looks up at Winry. "Yeah I guess we could. Al do you know of any assignments Mustang might have for me"
"No I can't think of any"
"That settles it you're staying here for Christmas!" Winry says with a big smile on her face. "Well I'm old and I can't hold up a tree on my own, and since you boys are here I've decided to get a real tree. I need help from one of you so who is going with me?"
"I'll go gran! The cold won't bother me because, you know, I have no body and this armor gives me a lot of extra strength!"
"Well that sounds good. Now come on we got to go before the snow starts coming down any harder." The old woman and the clanking suit of armor rush out of the cold to leave two certain teenagers alone. "Hey Win does granny have anymore stew left over?"
"Yeah, the pot is in the fridge you can bring it to a boil on the stove and that will get it warm enough. I'm going to be working on your arm so you might want to go ahead and let me attach the spare arm."
"K, that sounds reasonable just make it quick I can't wait for that stew" A couple of minutes later Ed is laying down (with his shirt off) flexing his spare fingers and bending his arm back and forth. "Ok, now that that's done it's time for stew!"
Ed made the stew in about thirty minutes, and spent the another thirty studying, and checking up on Winry. The last time he came u behind her shoulder to see what she was doing Winry was forced to bring up some type of conversation "Hey Ed, what do you think is taking Granny so long? She and Al have been gone for about an hour now."
"Winry she has to go to town and back, it's going to take a while. Just don't worry about it they'll be back and plus it's snowing pretty hard so it might take a little longer"
"Yeah your probably right Ed thanks". Three hours pass; Al and Pinako still haven't come back and it is still snowing. "Ed I'm really getting worried." Winry says with a distressed look on her face.
"Yeah I'm getting kind of worried too. Let's go out on your deck and look for them."
"Ok" The two go up to Winry's room and try to open the door. "That's funny the door won't budge what is up with that?" Ed goes to a window and pulls back the curtains and is amazed with what he sees."Uhm… Winry the window it's uh… it's completely white!"
"What! What do you mean the window is completely white?"
"I mean the window is filled with snow!"
"Let's go down stairs and see if we can get out" The two teens rush down the stairs and up to the door "Ok on the count of three" Ed says holding up three fingers. The two say in unison "1..2...3!" then they both reach for the knob (hands ending up on top of each others) and open the door to find a big block of frozen snow trapping them inside. Then as quickly as they opened the door they close it, and give each other a distressed look.
