Not Getting Any Equivalent Exchange

Princess Sango

Ed and Al were on yet another journey when they came across a city that well, looked outdated and ancient; it wasn't even marked on the map! "Brother, isn't that odd?"

"Yeah, better go check this out," Ed answered, running towards the city as Al yelled over to him about something that had to do with Roy. Did that stop our head-rushing Edward Elric? No, of course not, he just ran straight to the city without even thinking. Running over to the city which had a rusted sign with the name 'Serenity' on it, he stopped. Everyone was staring at him as if he was an alien.

"What are you looking at?" he asked them and a little girl ran up to him.

"Are you here to help?" she asked hopefully with her big blue eyes staring at him, and Ed cocked his head to one side unsure of what she was talking about.

"Help, what the hell are you talking about?"

"Are you here to help our city gain peace again?" she asked patiently.

"I'm not sure what you mean little girl, but I can help only if it has something I can use my alchemy for," Ed told her.

"Alchemy, what's that?" she asked him naïvely.

Ed almost sweat-dropped but gained his cool as Al stood behind him, "You've never heard of alchemy?"

The girl shook her head, "No one does, I'm pretty sure."

Ed sighed as he tried to think of a simple explanation for this girl but a man came forward, probably the girl's father. "Amethyst, come on home, you there, you are welcome to stay if you wish."

The girl, or Amethyst, gave them a frown and ran up to her father, "Daddy, are they here to help?"

"I'm not sure…" he mumbled to his daughter as Ed and Al followed behind them, heading to who knows where.
