Sickness with One's Self

IMPORTANT NOTICEI had originally posted this before my wonderful beta reader checked it over so she want to check it and the next 2 chapters are going to be different from what you originally read thanks to Riku Moriyama! Check out her FMA story called Learning to Fly

Disclaimer: I do not own any of the characters from Fullmetal Alchemist although I wish that I did.


Chapter One- Dizzy

First Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye woke up feeling fine like any other day. She made breakfast and took a shower. However, as she walked to work, she felt momentarily lightheaded and a weak. As quickly as the pain had come, it was gone again. She shrugged it off and continued on her way to work.

She greeted her Superior Roy Mustang as he strolled in late, yet again.

"Sir, can you ever be on time for work?" Hawkeye said in an annoyed voice, not even bothering to look up from her paperwork. He was probably out late again on another date.

"Good morning to you to Hawkeye. So Lieutenant, what paperwork do you have for me today?" He said, smirking at her exasperated expression. Mustang took a closer look at her face and thought to himself,

"She looks very pale today and tired. Note to self- watch Hawkeye closely to see if she gets any worse." He came out of his thoughts as he heard Hawkeye talking to him.

"Well Sir, I've never known you to ask for your paperwork but since you insist, here are the first out of three stacks of files that need to be read and signed. And don't just sign them without reading like you always do!"

Both Mustang and Hawkeye worked all the way through lunch without incident. (Not counting the occasional Hughes popping in with more pictures to show.) Around 6:30 they finally finished all their work. Here is where things start to get interesting.

As Hawkeye started to pack up her things, she was hit with another bout of lightheadedness and weakness.

"I feel really strange…" She thought to herself, gripping her desk. "Is this what I get for overworking?"

Mustang saw Hawkeye's pained expression and walked over to her side.

"Hey Hawkeye, are you all right?" His concern was evident in his voice. He placed a gentle hand on her shoulder. "You look worse than this morning…"

Hawkeye felt dizzy and looked up at Mustang.


Then everything went black.

So what do you think? So far I am trying something different and I good use some positive reinforcement. Reviews are always appreciated! Thanks a lot, and the next chapter will be up as soon as possible.
