Chapter 10

Winry Rockbell led the small group outside of the hospital to the parking lot.

Riza walked around her as she unlocked the door to the car.

"Do you really think we can trust them?" asked Roy

She nodded. "I was at their manor and they didn't even try to harm me." She said as she got in the car.

The others got in as well and Riza got in at the drivers side.

"Why would some one do something so horrible to brother?" asked Al

Roy shrugged. "Trying to get his knowledge on alchemy." He suggested.

"Asking may not get the answers we want." Said Riza as she started the car and pulled out of the parking lot.

Maes Hughes walked into the room that Edward was in.

The young blond alchemist looked up at him. His golden eyes were wide as he stared at the man as if he'd never seen him before. "Who are you?"

"Maes Hughes." He said smiling widely

"Maes Hughes?" he asked tilting his head in thought. "Maes Hughes…"

"I'm sure you remember this, you helped my wife birth her first child!" he announced proudly as he pulled out several photos out of his jacket pocket. "Isn't she cute! My little Elysia!"

He stared at him and his pictures. "Your weird."

He smiled weakly as he put the pictures back in his pocket. "Any ways Roy sent me here to watch you."


"Roy Mustang. Remember black hair, bad attitude, wants to be the next Furher."

He shook his head.

"Never mind then."

"Is he a friend?"

He nodded.

"You are to then?"

He nodded again.

"Why do I have so many friends older than me?"

He laughed loudly. "You do remember you're in the military right?"

"Kind of…"

"That's why."

"Why what?"

"You have so many dear friends older than you. There isn't any one your age in the military."


"Well I'll be out side. Yell if you need me." He said walking out side as a nurse walked in rolling a cart.

The nurse stopped beside his bed and pick up a syringe off the cart.

"What's that?"

"A shot."

He backed up to the end of the bed and hide behind a pillow. "I hate shots."

"You'll like this one." She said getting the air out of it and reached out to him. "Give me your arm and-"

"NO!" he screamed kicking her.

She fell over on the ground.

Maes ran back in the room. "Edward what happened?"

"She tired to give me a shot." He said pointing at the fallen nurse.

He looked down at her. His eyes widen he quickly moved over to Ed as he drew out his throwing knives. "That's one of the Homunculi Ed."


'She' stood up laughing 'her' hair was green now and was wearing a black out fit. "Aw you don't remember me shrimp?" 'she' asked turning around.

"Who are you?" Ed demanded.

"It's me Envy." He said picking up the fallen syringe. "I said it once and I'll say it again. Give me your arm." He said walking toward them.

Maes threw one of his knives at him cutting his hand.

"Ouch." He yelped

"What are you trying to do to Ed?"

"Save his life!"

He paused. "What?"

"He'll be no good to any of us if he's dead or insane."

He raised up his knives. "I want a better answer than that. What is going on? And what does any of this have to do with you homunculi?"

"This is where they are staying?" asked Roy as they stopped in front of an old house.

"Yes." Said Winry nodding.

"Might as well get this over with." He said getting out of the car and the others did the same.

They walked up the many stairs to the manor at the top.

Winry knocked on the door.

The door opened standing at the other side was Greed. "Yes?" he asked then realized who it was. "Oh hello there cutie decided to come back did you?"

"Leave Winry alone." Said Al

"Oh it's come to this has it." He said crossing his arms.

"We're here for-" started Roy but was interrupted by Greed.

"Answers. That's kind of cliché don't you think?"

"Cliché or not we need answers now before Ed is put in an insane asylum."

"Honestly I have nothing to do with what is going on around here."

"Stop playing around."

"My least favorite colleague is mostly involved with this. But he isn't here right now. Sloth too knows about it but she's not here either." He said grinning shaking his head in fake concern.

"I know what's going on!" yelled a young voice from the other side of the door. The young Homunculi known as Wrath ran out there.

"Wrath could you tell us more about what's going on?" asked Winry smiling at the young one.

"I could but Envy told me once 'Most knowledge will get you killed so you better off not knowing or not telling any one what you know' I think that's a fancy way of telling me to keep my mouth shut." He said nodding.

"But some one's life is in danger. Don't you want to help?"

"I don't know him."

"I know you were brought up better than that. What would your mom think if she heard you say that?"

He glared at her and ran back in the manor.

"I think you'd be better off looking else where for those answers." Said Greed shutting the door.

"A dead end." Mumbled Roy.

"We can't give up hope yet!" said Winry

"Maybe we should go back to the hospital." Suggested Al.

"Okay fine I'll tell you if you want to know so badly. Our Master got this brilliant idea to use this illness she made using Alchemy. Known as Sick in Mind and Body. It starts off no worse then a cold then slowly it begins to travel through the blood stream causing irrational thoughts and memory loose. My master thought using this on Ed would get us closer to him making the Philosophers Stone."


"My master figured if Ed wasn't even aware of what was going on around him, he'd be able to make it with out his morals or conscious getting in the way."

"So what does it matter to you? You want the stone too don't you?"

He nodded. "Yeah but you trust an insane teenager with something a vital as that? Plus there was a good chance it would kill him before he even made the stone. And a dead alchemist will do none of us any good."

"So you decided to be a good Samaritan and cure him, so you guys can continue to leave a trail of bread crumbs to the ingredients of the stone?"

"Pretty much." He lifted up the syringe. "And this is the cure."

"And you expect me to trust you?" he asked raising an eyebrow.

"Why not? I'm standing right here and I haven't attacked him or you. Me and some of the others have been nearby since this started and haven't attacked once. Hell Ed's little girlfriend even knows where we currently live. We are not here to harm you for now."

He thought about it for a while.

"Maes, I think we can trust him." Said Ed quietly

He looked back at Ed.

"Even though I don't like shots. I think we can trust him."

"If you think so Ed." He looked back at Envy. "Fine I trust you. Cure him."

"This will only hurt for a minute."

They had arrived back at the hospital and were currently walking into the waiting room when they heard…

"Ouch! Damn it that hurt!" Ed screamed.

"Brother!" yelled Al running into Ed's room with the others following.

A nurse was leaving about the time they got there.

"What happened?" asked Winry.

"I just gave him a shot. You know for some one his age he's a real wimp when it comes to shots." Said the nurse.

She laughed as the nurse continued leaving.

"Your how old again?" asked Roy trying not to laugh.

"It's not funny!" yelled Ed holding his arm. He looked around the room. "Why am I even in the hospital?"

"You don't remember?"

He shook his head. "All I remember is…" He looked at Maes. "You let that freak give me a shot!"

"Edward that's no way to talk about that nice nurse! Scolded Winry

"You said you trusted him!" yelled Maes.

"Well I must have been insane because I trust no one who gives me shots! Especially not a homunculus!"

"Whoa wait! What?" asked Roy

"That nurse was Envy. He gave me some shot and…" he paused. "I feel normal again. He really did cure me…"

They were all silent.

"Yeah since I'm cured can I get out of this hell hole now?"

It was late in the day when they finally let Edward leave the hospital.

Him and the others were exiting the hospital making plans for dinner to celebrate Ed's recovery.

Envy and Wrath stood off in the distance watching them.

"So what are we going to do them?" asked Wrath eagerly.


"Nothing! That's boring Envy."

"Another lesson for you Wrath. It's funnier to let your victims go. In a few weeks they'll think they're safe and then… that's when you attack again."

"Oh…" he said thoughtfully

"Let's go."

"Okay." He said following the older homunculus.


Yes the end I finally finished it. Read review no flames.
