Ed sat up and looked towards the phone in his hotel room, then looked at Al.
"Do you want to get that?" Al asked with a yawn.
"Damnit! Who the hell is calling us at four in the morning?!" Ed said viciously as he started throwing the blankets off of himself. Ed got up and started walking to phone. He picked up the phone...
"WHAT?!" Ed screamed. Nobody answered. He heard Al giggle and turned around.
"You have to put a dime in to use the phone, brother." Ed rolled his eyes and managed to find a dime.
Ed took a deep breath as he inserted a coin and before screaming "WHAT?!?!"
"Man Fullmetal, what took you so long?" The man said with a small chuckle.
"Geez, I wouldn't have even picked up if I knew it was you." Ed said bluntly, "What do you want?"
"We need you back in central A.S.A.P."
"What! Why!? We just checked into our hotel last night!"
"Not my problem. Anyways there's been a mix up with some of your personal record files and if you don't get it straightened out by the time the office closes tonight then you're not considered 'eligible' to go on that mission you were assigned, and we both know how much you were looking forward to that." The mysterious man said with a cocky attitude.
"Damn! By the time we get there it'll be closed!" Ed said irritatedly. Then there was a short pause.
"Hey Colonel?" Ed said with an unexpectedly sweet and kind voice.
"Do you think you could-" Ed started but was cut off.
"NO!" The colonel screamed.
"What?! I didn't even finish what I was saying!"
"You're going to ask me to fix the records for you, 'cause you're just that pathetic and can't do it yourself."
"SHUT UP!!! YOU BASTARD!!!!"
Al slowly got up to yell at Ed "IM TRYING TO SLEEP! KEEP IT DOWN A LITTLE!"
"Is that Al?" The Colonel asked. He was completely ignored though as Ed and Al started an argument...
(There was a knock at their hotel room door, but everyone ignored it.)
..."IT'S NOT MY FAULT THE STUPID COLONEL IS SUCH A BASTARD!"
"THAT DOESNT MEAN YOU HAVE TO BE SCREAMING ON THE TELEPHONE!" Al yelled.
"....HEY!"The Colonel randomly cut in but could barely be heard through the phone because of all the screaming, "IM NOT A BASTARD YOU SHRIMP!" he finished.
"WHO ARE YOU CALLING A SHRIMP WHO CAN'T BE SEEN AND IS SMALLER THAN AN ANT?!" Ed screamed as loud as he possibly could while holding the phone directly in front of his mouth.
"IM TRYING TO SLEEP BROTHER!!"
"DAMN ED! JUST GET YOUR ASS IN CENTRAL!" The Colonel yelled viciously.
"DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO-" Once again Ed was cut off.
The hotel manager kicked the door open.
"I'VE BEEN KNOCKING FOR FIVE MINUTES!" Ed and Al quickly turned around with startled expressions on their faces. The Colonel just sat quietly and tried to listen to what was going on through the phone.
"ITS FOUR IN THE MORNING STOP YELLING, GUESTS ARE TRYING TO SLEEP!" The manager screamed. And because of Ed's smart mouth they got kicked out.
Ed had to call back the Colonel in a phone booth.
"Hello, this is Mus-" The Colonel started.
"WE'LL BE THERE!" Ed screamed and threw the phone back on the stand as hard as he could.
"Damn that Mustang!" Ed mumbled defeatedly. As they started walking Al was rubbing his throat trying to sooth it because it was soar after all the yelling.
"You know brother, you are kind of short"
"Don't start with me." Ed said with a threatening tone.
