I don't own Fullmetal Alchemist or the characters.
Our Wish chapter 34
Thank you all for your patients. I do apologize for the long wait. Please stay with me on this story there are some shockers that I added that I wasn't going to do until the end but I had to fit it in right now and it will all work out good when we reach the end of the story. Okay enough talk! Time to read.
Roy sighed as he laid in the bed thinking about what the doctor said. I can't believe I have another infection. It's going to ruin our vacation. I can't tell Ed! But then, it wouldn't be right. We did tell each other about not keeping secrets. Then, I don't want Ed worrying about me. We didn't come down here for this! Roy thought.
A knock came to the door and Prince Eric walked in towards the bed. Eric pulled up a chair next to the bed. "Roy?" Roy snapped out of his thoughts.
"You look like you were far away."
"I was thinking about how I'm going to explain this to Ed."
"If you're worried about how he's going to react about the infection, I believe he'll be fine."
"I just don't want to ruin our vacation." Roy said sounding worried.
"You're not ruining your vacation Roy." Prince Eric assured him. "Two hours a day of bed rest and taking antibiotics for five days sounds like a breeze to me. Was it worse the last time you got sick?"
"Yeah, it was horrible. I spent the night in the hospital. I had a fever along with vomiting and Ed was in the hospital recovering and I had to tell him that I couldn't visit him. I was in a lot of pain. I was on high doses of morphine. My parents were visiting. My mom really took care of me while my dad took over my job. It took me two weeks to recover from that."
"Sounds like you were pretty messed up."
"It felt worse than when I was a teenager."
"Roy, you should tell Ed about this and you shouldn't worry. Remember honesty is the best policy, my mom and dad always tells me."
"I know, I just want him to be happy."
"Roy, I believe you're trying too hard to satisfy him. I guarantee you that Ed is more than happy with you. He would be willing to take care of you in seconds. I tried to come after you and almost got clobbered. He told me that he loves you with all his heart." Roy looked at him and smiled with a blush.
"And from that smile you just gave, there shouldn't be any worries. Don't lie to him or you'll make him mad." Prince Eric warned.
Roy sighed. "Your right I shouldn't be hiding anything from him. And you're right about him getting mad. He will."
"That's my flame alchemist, be honest." Eric modestly said as he handed him a small brown bag."
"What's this?" Roy said.
"It's your prescriptions for pain and one for the antibiotics. Remember what the doctor said, take care of yourself and I'll see you in five days. I'm pretty sure you want to get the hell out of here and go back to your hotel room."
"Yeah, I should be going. Thanks Eric for looking out for me. I really appreciate this. Don't forget to send me the bill for this."
"The bill has been covered. I would do anything for you, Roy." Eric said as he looked at him seriously.
"Eric, I can…"
"No Roy, I caused a squabble with your boyfriend and made you hurt by interfering with Ed comforting you. At least I can cover this. It's going to take me some time to get over you. But I know what I have to do. I'll have my assistant bring Ed back and I'll have Sandriel take you back to the hotel. We can discuss business when you feel better." Eric got up and kissed Roy on his cheek. "Goodbye for now I have a meeting I have to attend."
"Bye." Roy smiled at him as he left the room. Eric closed the door and took four steps away from the door. He then took his handkerchief out of his pocket and wiped a few tears that escaped his eyes. He really loved Roy and wished they could rekindle their relationship. He knew in his heart now that wasn't going to happen. He put his handkerchief in his pocket and moved his hair back from his face. The last thing he wanted was for anyone asking him questions. He got on his cell and Sandriel picked up. "Sandriel speaking,"
"Hi Sandriel I need for you to drop off Sir Roy and Ed. Please take them home safely. Also my feelings for Roy are over. He's just my dear friend. Just come to the guest room in thirty minutes."
"Thank you." Eric hung up and went to his meeting.
Ten minutes later Ed and Roy were making out in the guest room bed. "I missed doing that." Ed said as he stopped kissing him. "It's only been an hour." Roy said moving his blond strains of hair from Ed's face.
"I know." Ed sat up on the side of the bed.
"So, how was the tour?"
"It was great. This place is amazing!" He said excited. "So, where is Eric?"
"He had to go to a meeting. We did talk and everything is fine. He is hurt but he said he's moving on." Roy then handed Ed the brown bag. "What's this?" Ed said looking at him.
"It's my antibiotics and pain medication."
Ed looked at Roy sadly. "So you really do have another infection."
"Yeah, it's not bad. He said I just need two hours a day of rest for five days and I need to see him after five days.
"Sorry Roy if this hurts our plans."
"Ed it doesn't hurt our plans. The doctor said I can still go out just make sure I get two hours of rest."
"That's better than being in the hospital." Ed said. A knock came to the door and Sandriel walked in. "Excuse me but Prince Eric said for me to take you back to the hotel."
"Oh yeah, we better get going." Roy said. Roy got up and put his shoes on and the two left with Sandriel.
Back in Central a middle age man was sitting in Jason's office in his home. "I'm glad old friend you came to see me. I was hoping you could do me a favor."
"Jason, I am delighted to help you." The brown haired man smiled.
"I'm not going to get into details, so let's get to the point. I want that faggot freak couple to pay for what they did to me!"
"I'll see what I can do."
Ed had his forearm lying across his sweaty forehead. "Oh-h…Roy-y you are so good! I've been dying for this since the last two months. Oh-h…let's do it again Roy!" He quickly sat up and urgently asked with some demanding.
"Damn it Fullmetal! You're wearing the hell out of me! As much as I love having sex this will be the eighth time in four hours!"
Ed laid his chin on Roy's shoulder looking so mesmerized by his boyfriend. "But you're so good. No wonder the prince squealed when he talked about it."
"What did he tell you!?" Roy demanded as he turned his head to him.
"He just said you were good. He didn't get into details."
"Thank goodness." Roy breathed a sigh of relief.
"So, are we on for another round?" Ed said as he pecked Roy's shoulder softly. Roy looked up to the ceiling and sighed. He then looked at Ed who was smiling as he lied on his shoulder. "Okay, but this is the last time." Ed was excited. "Yes-s!"
And the two had sex again for another hour and even Ed pleased his partner more for letting it go this long. About twenty minutes later after having sex the two took a shower together and went out for a while to explore the city for a few hours. They took a carriage ride and went to different places and took pictures. They went to buy some souvenirs for themselves and their family and friends. After midnight, they came back to their hotel room exhausted from all the running around they did. The couple decided to go straight to bed as soon as they got in.
The next morning it was a gorgeous day and Roy and Ed decided to have breakfast on the patio. "You seem sort of quiet this morning, Roy." Ed spoke as he put down his orange juice.
"I'm a little tired and I don't feel so good. I think I over did it yesterday."
Ed thought for a moment and forgot about Roy recovering from the infection. "Oh yeah I almost forgot about that. I'm sorry Roy I should have been thinking."
"It's not your fault fullmetal. I wanted us to have a good time. That's what we came here for."
"I know but I don't want you to pay a price for it. Why don't you lie down for two hours like the doctor said and then we can go out later?"
Roy sighed. "That sounds like a good idea." Agreeing with Ed. He got up.
"You want me to comfort you?"
"No, I'll be fine." Roy left the patio and went to bed. Ed got up and looked at the view of the city and thought about his lover and yesterday.
"So you think this will work?" Jason asked.
"Well in a way it is a violation because of his reputation."
"A big violation," Jason made clear.
"I'm putting my job on the line for this but I have my reasons for it too."
"Thank you dear friend, I know you won't regret it." Jason smiled.
Roy woke up lying on his back. He turned his head to the right and saw his partner looking at him smiling as he lay on the pillow. "What?" Roy looked at him.
"You just look so sexy when you sleep."
"All this time you have been watching me sleep?"
"Not this whole time but the last twenty minutes." Roy turned his head looking up at the ceiling and laughing.
"What's so funny? I can't admire my man while he's sleeping."
"Yeah…it's just so funny how you admire the craziest stuff I've never thought of someone admiring." "I'm just weird like that." Ed smiled as he crawled on top of his lover, lifting his shirt and kissing his belly. "Feeling better?"
"Yeah, the nap and the pain killers did me some good." Ed pulled down his lover's shirt and crawled next to him kissing his neck. "Good. That…means we can… make out." He said talking raunchy between kisses.
"Hmm…that does sound like a good idea." Roy said as he got on top of Ed kissing him.
Later that afternoon the two went to the beach that was located in the back of the hotel where they stayed. The two spent a few hours on the beach chasing each other and taking pictures. Then the two lied on their blankets watching the sun set together. "Wow, what a beautiful scene." Roy said. He took off his sunglasses when the sun was leaving. He looked over at his lover who was watching the scenery and pulled him close. He cuddled his face up against his lovers face and sighed heavenly. "I love you Ed." Ed pecked Roy's cheek.
It was five days now into their vacation and Roy went to see Dr. Krail at Eric's palace. Eric greeted him with a handshake this time. Roy noticed the difference in Eric. "Hi Roy how's the vacation." Eric asked as the two stood in the outside hallway of the palace.
"It's been great! I'm having so much fun!" Roy said with excitement.
"That's good. Where is your partner?"
"He's at the hotel. He's not feeling very well this morning. Remember what I told you about all the stuff that happened with the doctors."
"Oh yeah, that's right. Well tell him I hope he feels better."
"I will." Roy said. "Eric, could you show me where Dr. Krail office is, I forgot?"
"Sure," Eric said. The two walked down the hall. Roy was concerned about Eric and how he was doing.
"Are you okay, Eric?"
Eric looked at him as they were walking. "No Roy…I'm not." He said sadly. "Don't worry about me Roy. I'll get over you. It's going to take some time. That's why I should keep my distance."
"I'm sorry you…"
"Please, no apologizing my friend, it's really my fault. I held on to you and I should have let you go." The two arrived at the door. "Listen I won't see you anymore for a long time. It's like I said, I rather keep my distance." Roy wanted to apologize again. "Please! No apologies. I'll talk to you again but much later. Goodbye for now." Eric walked away with Roy looking sad. He wished Eric didn't feel like that. But he had to tell him the truth.
Back in Central the middle age man sat at his desk looking at some materials. He got on the phone. "Hello, Jason. I have something that you may want to see. I'll come by later. Goodbye."
Roy walked into his hotel room and sat on the bed next to Ed. He was concerned about his lover. Ed was looking at him. He spoke softly to him. "So what did the doc…" Roy silenced him with a finger to his lips. Ed looked at the man strange. "I want to know how you feel first." He said leaning in pecking him on the lips.
"Uh…it still hurts a little but not like earlier."
"Why don't you take the morphine."
"I hate taking that stuff."
"I don't want you in pain all day."
"Neither do I want to sleep for three hours either."
"Ed, were on vacation and you're still recovering. You can sleep as much as you like."
"I just don't want to ruin our…" Roy covered his mouth and shook his head at Ed. "Remember what we talked about the other night. We are not ruining our vacation because one of us just doesn't happen to feel well. I said the same thing and I'm not saying it again. Besides we had too much fun last night and I think you over did it."
"Hey, when do we get a chance to come home at three in the morning?" Ed said as he cracked a smile. "Ow!"
"Yes and…no." He winced rubbing his belly.
"You should take some morphine."
"Come on Roy…you know…I don't like that stuff." He winced again.
"Neither do I, but it helps if the pain is really bad."
Ed sighed and gave in to what Roy was saying. "Okay."
Roy went into the refrigerator and came back and stuck the needle into the small IV that was in his arm. All the pain that Ed felt went away and he became drowsy and fell asleep. Roy kissed him on the head and spoke softly. "Sleep well, my love." He smiled looking at him with his eyes closed.
Later that mid-afternoon the two went to the beach again to have fun and make out without anyone watching or staring at them weird. Later that evening, Roy left the hotel and told Ed that he would call him later. About an hour later Roy called Ed and told him to meet him at the bench down the street from the hotel. Ed came and wondered what was going on. "I have a surprise for you." Ed smiled. "You are something Roy. Okay." The alchemist looked around and wondered where the surprise is.
"If you're looking for the surprise out here in the streets it's not here."
"Okay…uh-h…then where is it?" Ed asked, looking clueless. Roy took out a white rag and blind folded the alchemist. Ed smiled and laughed, he was really blown away at what Roy was doing. "It must be a really big surprise if I can't see it."
"That's the idea. Okay, just take my hand and will be off."
"Are we walking?"
"Yes. It's not far."
"I don't care how far it is I just don't want to fall."
"I'll catch you if you do." Roy assured him.
The two walked one block down the street and around the corner. They stepped into a nice restaurant that sit's by the city's water and Roy took the blind fold off. The server walked up and took the two to a table by the window. "Wow Roy this is nice and it sits by the water. You can't find this in Central but only a few places."
"That's why I'm taking advantage of this while we're out here."
The server came over to the table and asked them what they wanted to drink. The two told the woman and she left to get their drinks. "I'm glad you like this place. I've been to this place before when I was out here on business."
"Is this where you and the prince ate?"
"No. We usually eat in his palace or a real fine elegant place where all the rich people go. Prince Eric is next in line to the throne. He has to have high security everywhere he goes."
"Yeah, I experienced that when I grabbed him by the collar and his swat team had their guns aiming at me in seconds."
"I know about that."
"So the prince told you."
"Yeah and he apologized for it. He said it was his fault for making you mad."
"He did make me mad for touching you like that." Ed said sounding not thrilled. Roy touched his hand as he looked at him. "I'm glad that's over with and we can enjoy the rest of the seven days we have left."
"That's true." Ed smiled.
A middle aged man with dark black hair was dressed in a white shirt and black pants. He walked up gracefully to their table. He was playing soft violin music for them while they sat and talked. Ed really liked it. It was sweet and romantic. Roy took Ed's hand and kissed it. "Ed, I love you. I enjoy every minute that I am with you. I love your sweet personality the way you talk and the way you laugh." Roy kissed his hand again. "The protection that you give me and the love that you bring me. I know that you love me and it's not only when we make love it's also when we spend time just talking. I thank you for being my partner my friend and my lover." Ed was speechless a few tears escaped his eyes. He was overwhelmed by Roy's words. The middle aged man stopped playing the violin and put a small red gift box on the table. He then walked away. Roy took the gift box pulled the red ribbon off and opened it. He pulled out the little tiny red case and opened it. He took the diamond ring out and kissed Ed's hand again as he looked into his eyes. He loved him more than anything in the world. "I love you Ed, marry me." Ed swallowed and looked at his lover. He was so moved by his words and just blown away by the proposal. "YES! Yes! I will marry you!"
The two got up from the table and Ed grabbed his lover with all his heart and kissed him deeply. Everyone in the restaurant applauded with cheers and shouts after over hearing the couple.
To be continued. It's a cliffy but it's a good one.
