[A/N] So I had this up on my page saying that I needed help starting it, and so thatnks to KimiUzumaki, I have a chapter 1! Yay, (I, personally, think it's awsome :D) So this chapter doesn't belong to me, it belongs to KimiUzumaki

I am retyping all my chapters to make them fit the story more. I'm just changing the perspectives :)

"Al, put the cat back where you found it!"

"But Brother, it was just so lonely, I couldn't leave it!"

"Al, we don't have the means to take care of it!"

"But Brother-"

"Al, put it back where you found it!"

"Ed, you're so mean!"


Al's clanking steps could be heard as he ran away from me, carrying the kitten. I just sighed. Al would come back; he always does after he gets over it. I wanted to help, but we couldn't because we always travel, and I was too busy with all the military work. It would cause the cat strife. I continued to walk back to their hotel room. That's where Al would go after he cooled off and dropped the kitten off at the ASPCA. The warm summer breeze made my bad day just a little better.

First, we ran into a dead end with the search for the Philosopher's Stone. Then, I got yelled at by Colonel Bastard, and lastly, Al wanted to bring back a stray cat, which he knew we couldn't take care of. I sighed again at the thoughts. Things today were really hectic. When I reached the hotel I stood outside of it for a moment. It was an older building, but the inside was up-to-date with the furniture. I look a deep breath, savoring the fresh air, and pushed the door open, heading straight to our hotel room.

"Al?" I called into our empty room.

No response. I expected that. I took off my red jacket and threw it onto my bed, and headed to the bathroom to take a shower.


"Al? Are you there?"

Again, no response came.

The rain wasn't letting down. It was still pouring hard. Mustang was still doing his paperwork, and Hawkeye was watching him diligently. Everyone else was also working. Fuery was working on the radio, Havoc crying over a girl, Breda scared of the dog Fuery brought in, and Falman was looking in an encyclopedia. Saying they had a mountain of paperwork was an understatement. The colonel sighed and rubbed his wrist.

"Sir? Are you almost done with document 4-2b? It's was due today, and it is rather important." Riza Hawkeye asked, walking up to her superior's desk.

The colonel sighed. "Yeah, it's right here." He replied, handing said document to his only on-task subordinate. She nodded and added it to the pile already in her arms.

"I'm going to run these down to the receptionist quick, sir."

Mustang nodded in approvement, and Hawkeye turned on her heel and left the office.

I ran the brush through my wet hair. My normally golden hair looked like a light brown because of the moisture.


"Al, is that you?" I called from the bathroom. I assumed it was the wind again because I didn't hear Al's footsteps clanking, so I quickly ran the hair brush through my hair and hung up the towels I had used. What's taking Al so long? I thought absentmindedly.

After awhile I started to worry. Al never took this long, he should have come back by now, but he hasn't. I opened the window and let the summer breeze push the curtians in and out of the room. Maybe I should've let Al keep the cat for once, if not just for the night. Al got so lonely at night while I sleep, it would be nice for him to have someone to talk to, even if they couldn't respond.


What the hell is that sound? I turned away from the window in search of the mysterious creaking noise, which definatly wasn't the wind, but nothing was there. I made my way over to the door to go and ask the manager if this creaking was a regular occurance in this room. I reached out and turned the door handle.

It didn't budge at all.

"What the hell?" I muttered, shaking the door knob violently.

Heh heh heh...

I turned around again and scanned the room, but saw nothing again. I shook the door knob harder, casting quick glances over my shoulder at the empty room. My breath was coming out in short gasps as panic and fear took over. Then I heard somethign whisper in my ear...

Where do you think you're going? Huh?

[A/N] Thanks for reading! This is the first multi-chapter story, so I'm probably going to be really bad at updating regularly... Sorry everyone! If you want to review your ideas, that would be cool, since that Writer's Block always sneaks up on me "-.-
