I do not own Fullmetal Alchemist, or any of the characters in it. No matter how hard I wish.

"Hey, do you want to check out that new bar in town?"

Roy looked around from his seat facing the wall of windows in his office. "Eh?"

Hughes stood in the doorway, grinning away. "You know, that new bar down on 2nd street."

"Oh yeah." Roy sat back in his chair, playing with his pen. "Why not? Might be a good place for a date. "

"What's all this about a date?" asked Havoc leisurely, appearing behind the Lieutenant Colonel.

"Nothing," Reassured Hughes, "I'm just asking Roy if he'd like to check out that new spot on 2nd street. Wanna join us?"

"Oh yeah! Sure, I'll come."

"Well, come on, Roy, let's go!"

"What, now?"

"Sure! The chief's already left, so no one to stick around for."

"Are you sure she'd left?"

Havoc grinned. "Positive! I walked past her on my way here."

Roy checked his desk clock swiftly, then stood. "Let's go, then!"

-o-o-o-o-o-

"Karaoke?! You never said anything about karaoke!"

the entrance to the karaoke bar was a wooden again, with a winding entrance to contain the atmosphere of the bar.

The atmosphere was that of a cross between a nightclub and dinner play house. There was a stage, easily accessible to the audience, and better lit than a nightclub. The mood was brighter more energetic than a bar, and the rowdiest was at the bar itself, where men and women alike laughed and joked together.

Havoc instantly bee lined for the bar, and managed to snag drinks for all three of them. The trio then began searching for a table to sit.

Hughes was the one to find it. By the time Roy and Havoc navigated their way to it, Hughes was already sipping his drink, accompanied by Falman, Breda, and Feury.

"what the hell are you doing here?!"

"well, we were headed home to the dormitories, heard the noise, and thought we'd droop in for a drink," explained Falman calmly. "Com on, sir, join us!"

"Oh all right." He slumped in a chair and looked around at the crowd. "popular place, this," he muttered, sipping his drink.

He was gazing off towards the bar when Havoc made a funny spluttering noise.

"Hey, you okay there, man?" asked Breda, patting him on the back.

"yeah," wheezed Jean.

"something wrong?" asked Hughes.

"I-It's nothing never mind."

"HEY THERE, PEOPLE!" a tan-skinned woman stood on stage, smiling and holding a microphone. Behind her stood a blond-haired woman, who looked like she was trying to hid behind her bangs. Both wore military uniforms.

"I'M BECKY, AND THIS IS RIZA. WELL, I REMEMBERED THAT THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A KARAOKE BAR, AND I DON'T SEE MUCH SINGING. SOOOOOoooo, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE FIRST SHOT! RIZA'LL SING LEAD TO THIS SONG-" here Becky brought up a song onto the screen. Riza gasped in horror.

"I'm NOT singing this!"

"AW, COME ON, RIZA, YOU CAN DEDICATE IT TO YOUR SWEET HEART, ROY!"

"What?! What are you talking about?"

"COME ON, YOU CAN DEDICATE IT TO ROY! IT'S NOT LIKE HE'S HERE! HE'D NEVER EVEN KNOW!"

During this exchange, the audience had stayed respectfully quiet, sometimes giving the appreciative chuckle.

The scene was very different at Roy's table. The Colonel was sitting, slack-jawed and white-faced in shock, staring at the stage. All around him, his men wand Hughes were desperately trying not to burst out into peals of laughter.

"Alright, fine," Riza took the mic from Becky, and, blushing heavily, said, "RIGHT, I DEDICATE THIS SONG TO ROY, BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH HE'S INTOLERABLE SOMETIMES, HE'S OVERALL A SWEET MAN . . . and thank god that I can't see anything with these stage lights."

"And you love him!" stage-whispered Becky.

Riza's blush deepened. "A-and I LOVE HIM."

Havoc snickered silently. "Hey," he whispered to Breda, "check it out! You could fry an egg on Roy's face!"

Indeed, Roy's facial colour matched that of Riza's.

"You're right!" whispered back Breda.

Becky hit the button and the song began with an electric guitar. Then drums kicked in, and Riza began to sing;

Here we are so what you gonna do


Do I gotta spell it out for you


I can see that you got other plans for tonight


But I don't really care


Size me up you know I beat the best


Tick tock no time to rest


Let 'em say what they're gonna say but tonight,


I just don't really care



C'mon baby we ain't gonna live forever


"Oh my Gawd," breathed Breda. He couldn't believe the Lieutenant was actually saying these words, let alone to anyone.

Let me show you all the things that we could do


You know you wanna be together


And I wanna spend the night with you


With you


Come with me tonight


We could make the night last forever



I've seen it all I got nothing to prove


Come on baby just make your move


Follow me let's leave it all behind tonight


Like we just don't care


Let me take you on the ride of your life


That's what I said alright


They can say what they wanna say 'cuz tonight,


I just don't even care


Havoc gaped. "Holy Shit." The cigarette fell unheeded.

C'mon baby we ain't gonna live forever


Let me show you all the things that we could do


You know you wanna be together


And I wanna spend the night with you


With you

Come with me tonight


We could make the night last forever

Roy was frozen stock-still, mesmerized by Riza dancing up on stage. The other men were simply blown away.



Let's pretend you're mine


We could just pretend, we could just pretend yeah yeah

(Havoc glanced covertly at Roy)

You got what I like,

You got what I like, I got what you like


Oh c'mon


Just one taste and you'll want more


So tell me what you're waiting for



C'mon baby we ain't gonna live forever - forever


Let me show you all the things that we could do - that we could do


You know you wanna be together


And I wanna spend the night with you
(here Riza actually pointed to the crowd, unwittingly straight at the Colonel)

With you

So come with me tonight


We could make the night last forever


Yeah... forever...



C'mon baby we ain't gonna live forever


Let me show you all the things that we could do


You know you wanna be together

And I wanna spend the night with you


With you, yeah yeah


So come with me tonight


We could make the night last forever


Uh-oh

The applause was deafening. Riza was panting slightly, smiling nervously at the attention she was receiving. Becky clapped her on the shoulder, beaming.

The men at Roy's table had all stood up to applaud her. Roy, though, was not clapping. He was standing, frozen with shock and revelation, staring at Riza. Havoc noticed, and beckoned to the other guys. They all crept up behind the Colonel, and suddenly pushed him to just in front of the stage.

Riza looked towards the movement in the crowd, and froze. Then her face turned a deep red and she whispered, almost in horror, "Oh my god."

Becky looked over, and nearly keeled over laughing. Then she seized Roy by the arm and hauled him on stage, nudging him towards Riza.

Many voices in the audience asked, "Ohmgod, is that the Roy man she was dedicating the song to?!"

Hughes clambered up on stage after Roy, and crept up behind him, while Becky snuck up behind Riza.

Roy gazed at Riza for a second, feeling as though his brain wasn't working. 'or maybe,' he thought vaguely, 'this is the first time it's really worked.'

Then, simultaneously, Becky and Hughes gave their friends a good shove towards each other, so that, by a lucky chance, Roy and Riza suddenly found themselves kissing.

There were several cheers from the audience at this, and a few "so sweet!" cries.

The two parted for a second, then kissed again.

While the two were distracted, Becky and Hughes shot thumbs-up signs towards Roy's men. The all were smirking.

Perfect.
