A/N: Yusuke343: Hi everyone! If you are reading this fic for the first time, Welcome. If you have followed this fic from the review replys or PM's that were sent to you, Welcome back! Either way thanks for taking time to read this fic. Now, as many of you may not know this account is not mine alone. This is a joint account owned by myself and The New Fullmetal Alchemist. To her I would like to offer a huge thanks because as both my Beta and my co-author, without you this fic would go no where fast! With that I will turn things over to TNFMA and we'll see if she has anything to add. The New Fullmetal Alchemist: Thank you, Mr. Yusuke! Hello, there, everyone! In case you didn't know, I'm The New Fullmetal Alchemist (but you can call me The New FMA!) - I don't really have much to add, other than thank you again to all old readers, and welcome to all new ones! Also, special thanks to "Someone" who first mentioned our previous little "error" - we really appreciate it! Well, I hope that everyone likes this story! It's one of my personal favorites - but I could be biased, of course! Hahaha! Please read, enjoy and review! We hope to see you in future chapters!

"So, Winry, how long do you think it'll take to fix?"
"Hmmm…" Winry Rockbell said thoughtfully as she observed Edward Elric's auto-mail arm. "Well, the damage doesn't look too bad… it should only take a couple of hours, tops."
Alphonse Elric sighed. "Brother, why do you have to be so reckless?"
"Yeah, Ed… tells us why," Winry added.
"Errr..." Ed mumbled, avoiding eye contact with Winry or his brother.
Winry waved a wrench in front of his face threateningly. Ed panicked.
"Well, you see, Mustang - "
"Damn it, Edward! Why is it that you always have to pick a fight with that man?" Winry screamed as she began to throw tools and spare auto-mail parts at the blonde State Alchemist in front of her.
"I'm sorry, I'm sorry!" Ed screamed as he ducked behind the couch. "I won't do it again, honest!"
The barrage of metal objects stopped. Ed slowly poked his head up from behind the couch. Winry stood there, glaring at him. "And…?" she prompted menacingly.
"Eh-heh-heh…" Ed laughed nervously as he sweat-dropped, "I won't trash my auto-mail again - I promise!"
"Good! Now get over here!" Winry said brightly as she pointed to a chair near her work-bench. Ed breathed a sigh of relief as Winry began cheerfully fixing his arm, bickering with him the entire time about proper auto-mail maintenance. Alphonse sighed and shook his head. He knew just as well as anyone that it wouldn't be the last time Edward trashed his auto-mail… A sudden knock at the door interrupted them.
"I'll get it," the elderly Pinako Rockbell said as she made her way towards the door.
"Ok, Grandma," Winry replied as she continued to work on Ed's arm.
Pinako opened the door and gasped. "Oh, my! Winry, come here, quick!"
Winry, Ed and Al rushed over at Pinako's frantic words. They stopped short at the sight that met them - two teen-aged children collapsed on the porch, ragged, weary, and covered in blood.
A/N: The New FMA: So, what did everyone think? Bet we really have your attention now, huh? Haha! If I'm correct, chapter 1 should be up within a day or so! Hope to see you there! Please review!
