Not a Normal Girl

EdXOC


Hehe~ ultra quick update


"Hey, mom I'm going to head to bed early." I said, coming into the kitchen.

"Without dinner?" She asked.

"Yeah, I'm not hungry. Good night." I replied, hugging her and kissing her cheek.

"Night dad, bro." I said, hugging them both.

I walked upstairs and headed to my room.

"Aunty, will you play with me?" Sasha asked.

I leaned down and kissed her forehead, "Maybe later sweetie."

I closed my door and looked at the circle I had drawn on a piece of paper that covered half my room. I had finally cracked and looked up the circle I would need to do human transmutation. I had my duffle bag packed with clothes, a few books and trinkets. Through out the passed three months I had been back I felt like I was in Inception. Like nothing around me was real anymore. I had learned so much while I was in Amestris but I couldn't use any of my knowledge here in 'reality'. I loved my family but I felt like everything was fake. Mom was supposed to be dead and so were dad and Ethan. Sasha was the cutest little girl but how do I know I wasn't being tricked. All in all it was safe to say I was paranoid and I no longer had a grip on myself.

I hope this works.

I put my bag over my shoulders and stood in the middle of the circle. Taking a deep breath- a clapped my hands and slammed them onto the circle. At first nothing happened but then sparks of blue started to fill the circle.

It's working! I grinned.

I saw darkness before I appeared in a blank white space with two large double doors.

"Oh~ Look who's back." The white figure known as the Truth grinned, "What are you doing here?"

"I want to go back." I replied.

"Back to Amestris?"

"Yes."

"You'll have to pay a toll."

I had thought about the toll I wanted to pay and knew I would have to make the decision here and now.

"You can take away the memories of my family." I said, "I feel that I could do so much to help people if I was in Amestris and my family is no longer alive. Those three months were hell."

"Is that your final answer?"

"Yes."

"As you wish then."

I was thrown through the Gate and into the darkness. When I began to come to I felt like my body was being roasted.

"Where am I?" I muttered, sitting up.

I looked around and found myself in the middle of a desert. Wait- WHAT!

"WHAT THE HELL TRUTH! WHY WOULD YOU PUT ME IN A FREAKIN' DESERT! I SAID AMESTRIS!" I shouted.

I looked down at what I was wearing and found it totally inappropriate for such heat- sweat pants and a hoodie. Letting out a sigh I quickly changed into a pair of shorts and took my hoodie off to reveal my brown cami top. Yes, I just stripped in the middle of a desert, don't judge.

"Alright." I muttered, "Eenie, meenie, minnie, this way."

I started walking in what I guessed was the east direction in the blazing heat.

I have to run into a town at some point right? I thought, I'm so thirsty.

I decided to put my Ipod in while I walked and knew that if I needed to recharge it I could use alchemy. After walking for what seemed like an eternity I finally found a small town. It was dark by now and no one was walking around. I found an inn and checked into a room. Though this was illegal I turned some money I had in my bag to a currency I thought they might take here.

"By the way sir, where am I?" I asked the inn keeper.

"You're at the border of Xing miss." He replied.

"Oh," I said, "How long is it to Amestris?"

"It's about a two day walk until you reach a town inside of Amestris." He replied.

"Thank you."

I went to my room and collapsed on my bed.

Note to self: Tell the Truth a specific place you want to go. Not just by the border of Amestris.

That next morning I did my morning ritual. I dressed in shorts and a cami top; pulling my hair into a ponytail. I ate I quick breakfast before checking out of my room.

"May I have a map please?" I asked.

"Sure." The innkeeper said, handing me a map.

"Thank you."

I walked out the inn and stopped by a few shops to gather food and water.

Alright, onward to Amestris.

I unfolded my map and began my two day walk.


I was furious.

"How could you!"

"Reena, I-"

"Mikayla loved you and you know it! What if she comes back?" I shouted, "What if she-"

"Reena, she's not coming back. Besides I'm not dating Winry we're just going out to dinner."

"You might as well be dating her." I whispered.

I fingered the orange bow in my hair, "Please, just say you'll wait a little longer…"

"I loved Mikayla, Reena but…what if she doesn't ever come back? It's been almost a year." Ed said, fixing his tie in the mirror.

Ed and I were currently in Central for a visit. Winry decided to come up because Ed needed his leg maintenance and they decided to go out to dinner at some fancy restaurant.

Ed turned to me and patted my head, "Be good okay?"

I had become accustom to calling him my big brother. Though we argued a lot I still respected him and looked up to him.

"Yes sir…"

"Good, I'll see you later"

He left the hotel room, leaving me alone to do what ever.

I went through Mikayla's backpack and took out the contraption she had called a "laptop". In my spare time I took it apart to attempt to learn how to get it to work.

"Well," I muttered, "I got plenty of time."


I finally came to the small town of Rivertown when I entered Amestris. It was around mid-afternoon and the town was busy with little kids running and mother's shopping around.

I walked to an inn and asked for a room to take a shower and to rest for the rest of the day.

After freshening up I walked out into the town and got something to eat.

"You don't look like you're from around here." The young server said.

"I'm a traveler." I said, taking a bite out of the sandwich I ordered.

"Going any where specific?" He asked.

I grinned, "To see my boyfriend."
