Roy Mustang could only stare in surprise. He had fully expected another Elric to show up one day. Whether it would be as a State Alchemist or an enemy of the State had always been a matter of some debate.
But, he had never imagined they would come looking to be his student.
After a moment, he found his voice. "What does your father say about this?"
Elias Elric looked up at him quickly. Then, just as quickly averted his eyes.
"Do you want it... verbatim or a paraphrase?"
Mustang smiled. "Verbatim, please. I want to hear every obscene syllable."
