A/N: Little RoyEd drabble. The name, loosely translated, means "to the future", and was inspired by too much Mirai and Returnable Memories. Alphonse's POV, first person.

To Mirai

Brother would always throw open the door to Mustang's office, causing the man to look up and enquire as to why nii-san was in such a mood. Brother would react by shouting at Mustang-taisa, ignoring their difference in rank, while I would stand there, uncomfortable as hell. After a while, you almost consider trying to say that you're unrelated, when your brother's Edward Elric, the Fullmetal Alchemist. But brother promised to help get my body back, and I returned the promise for his arm and leg, so I guess we're stuck together.

Besides, when you're a seven foot tall suit of armor, and your brother's the rather – may I say it – small figure of Ed, you're kind of noticeable. And brother's reputation sort of precedes him, so I don't think I'd fool anyone if I did try to claim we weren't related. Sure, I was once made to doubt whether me and brother were related, but I know that we are.

Anyway, as I was saying, that was how it always was. But a little while ago, that started to change. Nii-san would still shout at Mustang-taisa, but his heart didn't seem to be in it. Eventually I asked him why. When he told me was the time he found out that even as a suit of armor, I could still faint.

"I love Roy Mustang."

Somehow, even though they've been together for two years, I just can't get my head around that one.


A/N: Blah, I'm not exactly what you could call an Al fan (although I do quite like Elricest), but that was rather fun to write. Whether you bug me or not, I'm extremely unlikely to continue this, so don't.
