Author's Notes: although I'm fond of reading mushy fics, I am not fond of writing them, so please excuse this sad attempt of a drabble. Inspired by an icon I saw just a few hours ago in LJ, but I can't remember exactly where I found it. –sweatdrop- Please review! X3

Coats Off

Edward Elric did not believe that Roy Mustang loved him.

It was rather embarrassing for Ed to think that he was being perturbed by this simple problem, mostly because it was about love. The Fullmetal Alchemist did not have troubles with love. Especially with another man, who is more than ten years older than you, and who is also your commanding officer.

He loves Roy Mustang with all his heart (and the rest of him) but couldn't believe that the man would actually love him back, even though the said man has just confessed to him a few hours ago. His mind reeled with the thought of a joke, a prank just to capture his bewildered and morally injured expression on tape, but now, as he looked out his apartment window, it didn't seem much like a prank at all.

Why would Roy stand in front of the apartment building in the middle of the street, drenched to his bones, his coat forgotten on the pavement and risk having pneumonia if it was all a prank?

Truth be told, the sight made Ed's heart swell. With what? Love? Perhaps.

So Ed forced himself away from the window, out his room and finally out the building. It was obvious that the thought of wasting time by walking didn't appeal to him, for he ran across the street and threw himself in Roy's arms, their lips meeting hungrily and desperately.

It was only afterwards when they were lying comfortably in Ed's bed, dry and warm with the other's body heat, would Roy force himself to ask.

"What made you believe me?"

Ed smiled. "You took your coat off and stood in the rain."
