"I forgive you."
The familiar exchange whispered across the Drift, no less heartfelt despite the many times it had been uttered. Or the many times it would be uttered. Because beneath the regrets, apologies and flickering memory, a single, shining emotion resonated.

Author's Note: Yes, I took the name of the Elrics' jaeger from a scanlation group I remember.
