Chapter 4: To Accomplish Great Things
Disclaimer: I do not own Fullmetal Alchemist.
"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe."
Riza Hawkeye wasn't sure of whom she was anymore. Whatever that thing did to her, it left her incomplete. She was back at work again, but she didn't feel completely there. She knew her body was there, but her soul felt as if it was fading away.
Some took notice to this change. Others did not for they were too concerned with promotions and their hunger of power to take notice.
One of those that took notice was Colonel Mustang. Ever since that night, when Lieutenant Hawkeye told him of her encounter with the homunculi's master, she was not the same. Unfortunately, Mustang was not the only one to take notice of the Lieutenant's change in spirit.
Furher Bradly also took notice and decided to make his move. He promoted Lieutenant Hawkeye as his secretary as he was in need of a new one.
Mustang knew what he was doing. He was trying to separate them. He was trying to destroy them. But Roy Mustang was smarter than he seemed. He wasn't going to let Bradly get the better of him.
Roy Mustang was going to save his Lieutenant. He was going to be her knight this time. She always got the pleasure of saving him, now it was his turn to return the favor.
All he needed her to do was to wait. Wait for him to follow through. Because to accomplish great things, one must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe.
And that was what Colonel Roy Mustang was going to do. He was going to accomplish great things.
Sorry that it took so long to update. This story is over, but if there are enough reviews, I may write a sequel…
God Bless and Happy Thanksgiving!
