10: The Book

When Mustang snapped his fingers, Ed and Al had already begun running. Hughes felt his hair begin to smoke and ducked back into his office with a protesting shout as his hands started beating at his smouldering hair. Swearing, cursing and snapping echoed as Mustang followed him.

Al and Ed ran out of the building and didn't stop until they were a mile away. Ed sagged against a wall and looked at the book in his hand.

"I can't believe the Lieutenant-Colonel wrote this." Al said in a stunned voice.

Ed flipped some pages. "Butterflies? Ladies-man? Whoa, listen to these Al…"

"Roy Mustang can sew his own buttons but was ten before he could tie his shoelaces."

"There are rumours that during a student revue in Mr Mustang's final year of school, he wore a mini-skirt."

"Roy Mustang is the only person to have completed the maze at Eastern Command without cheating."

"Like you did, Brother"

"Shut up, Alphonse."

"What do we do with it now?" Al asked as they looked at it.

"Well, I'm going to read it." Ed said, grinning.

There was a sudden snap and the book burst into flames in his hand.

"No you won't, Fullmetal."
