"We are not put on earth for ourselves, but are placed here for each other. If you are there always for others, then in time of need, someone will be there for you."

After everything that has happened, you'd think I'd learn from my mistakes. No matter how hard I try, instead of fixing my past, I make it worse.

"Brother? We're here. Brother?"

I looked up from my seat and found Al with our suitcase.

"Yeah…I'm coming," I replied as I stood and followed him off the train.

Not only did I almost get my brother killed (again), but also I broke myself in the process. My right arm was completely useless now that my auto mail was gone.

That is why Al and me had to go to Winry's and get it fixed. I wondered how angry she would be this time.

As we walked down the dirt road, my mind floated back to six years ago, when everything was so much simpler. The most I had to worry about was homework and doing the dishes…now… well, things have changed.

I only wish I didn't have to drag Al down with me. If I had just done the transmutation with out him, then he would still have his body and be normal.

He would have kids and be married. Hell, he would have married Winry. But the thought of them together made my blood boil.

Another tragic and foolish human trait. I was selfish and self-centered. I wanted to go back in time and change everything. I wanted to stop myself from doing the transmutation. I wanted to be normal and get married and have kids.

I wanted something that I couldn't get no matter what. I wanted to keep mom from dying.

So many people were there for me when I needed them and what had I done to repay them…nothing…

This time I was going to be there for them. I was going to do everything possible to atone for the sins I committed. I was going to get Al back in his body and be the best man at his wedding when he and Winry get married. I was going to make them happy even if my heart would break in the process.

I had done enough for myself. Now, it is time that I follow equivalent exchange and give back to those who gave to me…


Hope you enjoyed it. Merry Christmas!
