Pain and Love:
The pain was overwhelming. It was as if it was a snake, attacking and racking his small frame when he least expected it. It took all the strength he had left not to scream out; after all he had only lost an arm and leg. The automail had almost fixed his problem, however, his brothers problem had not been so easy to fix. With that thought to strengthen him, Ed swallowed down another yell.
He vaguely heard the door open and someone walk in and set something down. The light shined against his eyes as a soft hand lifted the cloth. Ed whimpered softly, unable to hold it in any longer.
The blonde girl standing next to him looked down with worry etched into her features. After taking a closer look, she noticed him shivering under his covers. She reached out to feel his forehead, but pulled back when the heat from his forehead burned her fingers. Moving a little quicker now, she took the cloth and washed his face with cold water from the bowl she had brought in. She then replaced the now cool cloth back over his eyes and forehead before looking down at his sheets.
They were covered with bile and blood from him throwing up so much. She sighed softly and walked over to the corner of the room and brought a small trashcan and a clean set of sheets back with her. She took the dirty sheets off of Ed's shivering body and covered him with the clean ones, adding a couple extra.
"Here Ed," Winry said moving the trashcan next to his head. "If you need to get sick use this if you can." She reached down and ran her fingers through his soft golden hair, and he sighed comfortably, moving closer to her fingers as she continued her grooming.
She watched him and ran her fingers through his hair for what seemed like hours until she felt him completely relax, seeming to be asleep. She stood up, grabbing the bowl of water that had long since grown warm. With one last look she whispered, "Goodnight Ed. I love you."
Unknown to her Ed was still awake enough to hear her before she shut the door, then he muttered hoarsely, "I love you too, Winry."
