A/N: My apologies for the immensely long awaited update. I'm not sure how many chapters there might be after this, but there probably won't be that many. I'm kind of thinking this is the last one… Just because I want/need to focus on my other story, Frozen Heart, Broken Body… Anywho, enjoy the chapter.
"Edward, we might be able to get your memory back!" She yelled enthusiastically.
"What?" I stuttered. It took me a few moments to comprehend what she had just said.
"I'm sorry I didn't think about this before, but I had just realized this!" She pulled out a pamphlet, handing it to me, and continued, "There is a new medicine that just came out. It's been used quite frequently on many people, and it's been proven to work perfectly." I flipped open the paper, trying to read the entire confusing doctor lingo contained in it.
"What does it do?"
"It cures any memory or mind lapses that's occurred in the last 72 hours." She smiled. "It'll work for you Edward!" I look up at her. She was glowing, and positively excited about this.
I paused before speaking. "Um… Is there any catches to this?" She shook her head.
"That's the thing, there's no catches what so ever. Should I go get the needle now?" As soon as I heard the word, I stiffened up.
"N-n-n-n-needle?" I shuddered.
"It's a small injection Edward. What do you want to do? Have a small poke, and remember all the important things, or not have it, and keep hurting people?" The way she said made it seem like my choice was so obvious. And she knew I couldn't stand it to see people hurt.
"… P-p-please go get the needle…" I mumbled, stuttering along the way. She just grinned and left the room in a hurry. I sighed heavily and walked over to the window. "Shit… I hope I'm not making a big mistake," I grumbled.
People were walking around in the courtyard of the hospital. Little kids with broken bones, and elderly with other sicknesses. They all were outside, enjoying the glorious sun.
One thing caught my attention while I was watching everything. A younger woman ran up to a man in a wheelchair, which was sitting by a tree. She smiled, and started to cry. He grabbed her arm, and pulled her down into a hug, grinning as he did so. She sobbed, but it was obvious that she was crying tears of joy. He laughed, and then looked at her sweetly. He kissed her slowly, and she responded, doing the same.
"Yuck, kissing…" I muttered.
Out of no where, my head started to hurt intensely, causing me to drop to the ground. It felt like my head was about to crack open. A gush of memories and people came flooding into my head, in a mere matter of seconds.
I put some pills in her mouth and I drank some of the water, not swallowing it. I slowly went to Winry's lips until hers met mine.
"Ed… Do… Do you love me?" She whispered. I noticed a single tear dropped from her right eye. I brushed it away from her face with my hand and nodded. "Yes Winry, I love you…" I told her in a whisper also. After that, there was nothing else heard. She shed a few more tears after that, each looking like a crystal, rolling down her cheek.
I remembered everything… Everything.
I was shot back into the gate again. I whipped around, turning to face the Truth. I glared at him. "What are you doing?!" I yelled furiously.
He frowned. "I can't contain your memories." I looked at him slightly confused. He sighed.
"You can have them back. I really only used you for my amusement." He grinned. "Wasn't it just great, to watch you hurt so many people, without having to do a thing?" He chuckled. I lunged at him, trying to attack. He just dodged.
"Bastard!" I swore, "Do you know how much it really hurts to make people you love, cry?"
"I do not experience such emotions, and I do not understand what is so painful either." I just looked at him with and icy stare. His head turned the other way.
"You still can't go alchemy, and you're still going to die sooner than later. But I realized that it'll be more amusing to watch you fall in love with the girl, and see how much more heartbroken she is when you die. Don't you think?" I growled, but started to grin at him.
"Shut up, human." He muttered. "I can't wait till you die." I saluted to him with 2 fingers.
"We'll see when I do." I said clearly. He didn't say anything, and I was rushed back to my world. No time had passed, and I had apparently ended up on the floor.
"What the hell just happened?" I muttered. I stood up, my knees shaking a bit. I clutched onto the windowsill, using as a support to stand up. I looked out the window again, and the young girl and guy were still kissing.
"Winry!" I yelled out. I rushed out the door of the examination room, startling Dr. Westing on my way out, and almost making her drop everything.
"Edward, what about the shot?" She spoke loudly.
"I don't need it!" I yelled back, running backwards, grinning. "I remember everything!"
I bolted down the halls of the hospital, and out the doors. My legs were still weary, but I didn't stop running down the dusty road. I had only one person on my mind, and I wanted to get to her as soon as possible.
Alphonse was sitting next to me, on the floor. I sighed heavily, and my eyes dropped sorrowfully. "What if he never remembers?…" I asked depressingly.
"Winry, he'll remember for sure. You're so important to him." Al spoke softly.
"What if he doesn't though?" I started to sob. "It just hurts so much to wonder what would happen if he doesn't." My heart felt like it was being pulled in so many various directions… It really was painful.
"He will… And, even though the chance is very, very slim, if he did… I think it's pretty obvious that he'd fall in love with you all over again." He grinned at me, his voice filled with compassion. I smiled back at him. He gave me a tight hug, and I did the same thing back. The door flew open, and startled us both.
"Let go of her!" He yelled, sounding quite angry, and out of breath… Is he still mad about this morning? He hustled over to where we were at, and he pulled me out of Al's arm, leaving Al very confused. He pulled me into a tight hug, and spoke fiercely at Alphonse, "I love her Al, and I won't let anyone else touch her."
Did he just say what I thought he said?
He turned his face towards mine, extremely red, like a tomato. "Sorry Win," he muttered. I started to cry again. Finally, I had cried tears of happiness… True happiness.
"Oh shit, Winry, don't cry, I'm sorry!" He stuttered, still plenty red. I started to laugh, while crying, which was surely a weird combination to hear. I hugged him back, tightly; for fear that he'd escape from my grasp again.
"Edward… I love you so much." I heard footsteps going out of the room, which both of us knew Al wanted us to be alone. I dropped to the floor again, still sobbing. Ed used his sleeve to wipe away my tears.
"Jeez, Win, you idiot… Did you really think I wasn't going to remember?" I nodded. "Really?? You have that little faith in me?!" I laughed at him statement, wiping away some of my own tears. When I opened my eyes again, his eyes were filled with passion and love. I closed my eyes, and I could feel Ed's breath on my lips, get closer and closer, until I could feel a heat that could not be described, on my lips. We stayed like that for a while, just kissing slowly, until we parted.
I opened my eyes, and Ed looked sad. "I-I'm really am sorry Winry… I caused you so much pain. Do you think you could find it in your heart to forgive me? Please?" His breath tickled my face as he said this.
"Yes…" I said softly, kissing him again.
"I love you…" He muttered.
We were inseparable now. Every person goes through his or her hardships in the ways of love. I figured this was ours, and so Edward and I would be fine… So fine, with our lives. There couldn't be anything wrong with whatever would happen in the future.
2 Weeks Later
I stumbled out of Winry's room. It was early in the morning, and my face was already feeling very hot. It was still taking some getting used to sleeping in Winry's room, with her. Either way I didn't mind it too much.
I walked slowly to the bathroom, turning on the light when I got there. I looked in the mirror.
My face was as red as a cherry. I shook my head, and continued to pull my hair up into a ponytail. Turning on the water on, to wash my face, I felt a burning sensation in my throat. I started to cough intensely, and it wouldn't stop. My eyes were closed so tightly; tears of pain were slipping out.
After a while, I had calmed down, and I wasn't coughing anymore. I opened my eyes, and found a horror, draining slowly into the sink drain.
A/N: LMAO, I'm such a terrible person, ending it like this. Either way, I'm done with this, and I'm pretty happy about it… I mean, I'm happy I don't have to keep worry about trying to update 2 stories (At least 2 full-fledged ones). I know I have to keep working on my 25 Simple Kisses one… Haha, anyway, thanks for sticking with me this long, and I hope you enjoyed the story. It means a lot to me that you enjoyed this, and hopefully you'll enjoy any other future works I may compose. Again, thank you so much for your support! I love you all!
