The Flame's Sigh of Relief

Roy Mustang, the Flame Alchemist and current Fuhrer of his home country, let out a sigh as he sat down in a back row pew of a small local church. His wife of three years sat quietly beside him, their eleven month old son in her arms. He shifted closer to her and put his arm around her, drawing the woman he loved and his only son close to him.

His wife, a woman named Rose he had met when visiting the remnants of the shattered church of Leto, had been a surprise to many of his direct subordinates. They were mostly surprised because this had been the first girlfriend he had had that he had taken seriously. Riza Hawkeye had threatened to shoot his family jewels with a shotgun if he hurt 'that poor girl', as she had put it. But there had been no need to worry, as he was actually genuinely in love with the multi-color haired girl.

Roy looked up on stage, where the Fullmetal Alchemist and his brother Alphonse were the groom and best man, respectively. Edward had a stupidly deliriously happy expression on his face, and his brother had a smirk on his. Earlier that day, Alphonse had confided to Roy that he had found his brother getting married one of the more amusing moments of his life. Roy was inclined to agree.

Roy remembered with amusement when the two getting married first started dating. Ed had first asked his soon to be wife on their first date by sending back her gun by mail, along with a note asking her out also in the package. Roy had busted out laughing when had seen her red faced reaction to the proposal.

It had been two weeks after Roy's rise to power that Ed had finally popped the question, after much prodding by all of his male friends, especially his brother and Roy. That had been the first time in a long while that Roy had seen her speechless, as she had been so overcome with emotion she had barely been able to nod before squeezing all of the air out of the Fullmetal's lungs.

The ceremony almost over, Roy finally began to pay attention. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Mr. and Mrs. Edward Elric!"

Roy let out a sigh of relief. He had thought a couple of years ago that they would never have figured out their feelings for one another. But now he didn't have to worry, Edward Elric, and his new bride Riza Elric, would be just fine.

AN: Well wasn't that just a whole pot full of sap? I finally got some downtime during the move and my sister's wedding, and was 'inspired' to write this….hope you enjoyed it. I've found my new favorite pairing from Fullmetal Alchemist, and that is EdxRiza! No idea why though, I just really enjoy it. I may end up doing something multi-chap, but I'll most likely end up posting it in this oneshot collection.

I know it sounds cheesy but…EdxRiza fans unite!

Comments in the form of reviews would be most welcome…..
