There was a crash of thunder as lightning split the sky. Riza paused with her hand hovering over the door knob. The wind outside was howling and rain pelted against the building. Should I wait for it to stop? Her hand continued to hover over the door knob. But what if it doesn't let up soon? There was a sudden roar of thunder as the entire hallway was momentarily illuminated with a flash of light. Riza pulled her trembling hand away from the door. She was about to take a step back when she felt something lightly press down on her shoulder. She twirled around and came face to face with her commanding officer, Colonel Roy Mustang.

"Is something wrong Lieutenant?" Mustang inquired.

"No sir" she replied in a strained voice.

"I've known you long enough to be able to tell when you're lying. Now tell me, what's the matter."

"I, I'm-" she started and averted her gaze. "I'm afraid…of thunder".

"That's nothing to be ashamed of".

"You mean you're not going to laugh at me?"

"Why would I do that?"

"Because it's a weakness".

"Everyone has a weakness".

"What's yours?" Riza's eyes locked onto those of Mustang.

"My weakness? Are you sure you want to know?" he replied with a grin.

"Yes" she nodded.

Mustang moved closer to her so that there was hardly any space left. He brought his lips next to her ear.

"Sir? What are you do-"

"You're my weakness" he whispered.
