CH 13

"I am so glad that is over," Ed said getting rid of the hot costume.

"Brother, it wasn't that bad," Al said. "Come on, we don't need to keep everyone waiting." When Al said that Ed noticed they were the last two in the guy's changing room.

They walked out to the group that consisted of Shigure, Kazuma, Izumi, Tohru, Winry, Kyo, Yuki, Haru, and Momiji. "There you two are," Momiji said as Ed and Al walked up to them.

"Ed," Kazuma said to Ed, "Is that your teacher?"

"Yes," Ed replied wondering why he was asking.

"Ah, I see," Kazuma walked over to Izumi. "If I understand correctly, you are the one who thought Ed how to fight, yes?"

"Yes, that would be correct."

"I find your style very unique and different and would love to test it against my own," Kazuma said narrowing his eyes.

"Just say a place and time," Izumi said catching on to what he was saying.

"Good," Kazuma smiled. The conversation ended with Kazuma and Izumi staring at each other, Shigure smiling, and everyone else glancing back and forth between Izumi and Kazuma.

(Three Days Later in Kazuma's Dojo)

In the dojo there was Ed, Al, Winry, Haru, Tohru, Yuki and Kyo on the side lines and Kazuma and Izumi dressed for battle.

It was over in a matter of minutes. Izumi had thrown Kazuma to the ground and that was that.

"My, I must say, your style is very unique and much more powerful then I expected. I also have to admit that it took me awhile to take Ed down." Kazuma said standing up.

"Ed, you spared with him?" Izumi asked.

"Yeah, I would of won but I couldn't," Ed said staring Izumi into the eyes. She knew by his looks that it was his arm and leg holding him back, not his ability. "Maybe you need more lessons," Izumi said threatening Ed.

Izumi then began to cough violently and Ed and Al rushed to her. Everyone stared at her when she vomited blood all over the floor.

"Here I got her medicine," Al said.

"Can we get a glass of water and some wet rags," Ed asked and Tohru rushed off.

She came back with both and Izumi took her medicine while Ed cleaned up the blood.

"Um," Yuki was the one to speak first, "is she alright?"

"I am terribly sorry," Izumi said bowing to Kazuma.

"No, don't be," Kazuma said, "There is nothing you can do about a health problem." Izumi frowned when he said this.

After everything was settled Tohru, Kyo, Yuki, Winry, Ed, Al, and Izumi headed back to Shigure's house.

It was night now, Winry, Ed, Al, and Izumi sat alone to talk.

"You know we have to go home in three days," Izumi said being the head of their little secretive meeting. "So, if you have any unfinished business you need to take care of it now," she said this mainly to Ed since he's been in this world the longest, "I will also leave it to you to tell everyone."

"I will go tell Shigure now," Ed said leaving the room and going back down stairs where everyone sat drinking tea.

"Oh, hello," Shigure said noticing his presence.

"Um, I wanted to let you know that we will be leaving in three days," Ed said, "so if you could take care of everything at the school and what not."

"Oh, well this is definitely sudden," Shigure said, "hold on one minute," he said getting up and walking over to the phone.

"Do you really have to go?" Tohru asked.

"Yeah, I've got people waiting for me back home," Ed said thinking about everyone back in Amestris.

"Well, it was nice to get to know you, even if it was for just a little time," Yuki said with a small smile.

"…." Was all Kyo said.

"Ed," Shigure said motioning him to come to the kitchen to talk privately.

"What's up," Ed asked walking into the kitchen.

"I just got off the phone with the main house and Akito insists you come and see him before you leave so you and I will be going tomorrow." Shigure said very seriously.

"Just me?" Ed asked wondering since Winry, Al, and Izumi where in this world too.

"You're the only one that knows our secret."

"'kay," Ed said and walked back upstairs.

(The Next Day)

Shigure and Ed walked to the main house, neither one of them had told anyone else where they were going.

'Wow, sure is big,' Ed thought to himself, seeing the main house, 'not as big as the Armstrong mansion though.'

They waited for the gate to open and both walked in. Shigure led them to the biggest house and they were greeted by a maid. The maid led the two to Akito's room, not like Shigure didn't know the way on his own. Shigure knocked on Akito's door as the maid left.

"Come in," a voice was heard from behind the door. Shigure opened the door and him and Ed stepped in. "Ah, so you must be Edward Elric," Akito said in a cool, chilling tone. "Please, why don't Shigure and you sit down." Doing as they were told they sat on the cushions. "Have you told anyone about the curse?" Akito asked Ed.

"Not a soul," Ed replied.

"And when are you leaving?"

"The day after tomorrow."

"And why should I not have your memory erased?"

"Well for one reason, that's plain weird," Ed said and Akito got a little bit angry.

"Tell me; is your world better than this one?"


"And why is that?"

"It is not as crazy, and there are no crazy curses and no people begin God." Akito's temper worsened.

"Why would it benefit me if your memory wasn't erased?"

"I don't know, that's your decision, beside who am I going to tell that will believe me? Do you honestly think that when I get back home and be like hey, I just came from another world where people turn into animals when they are hugged by the opposite gender and they are all controlled by this person who is like God or what ever! No they would send me to a mental hospital and it would completely diminish my authority."

"I am done with you! Shigure take him away!" Akito said finally snapping. "When you leave this world, you better not return," Akito said to Ed, "not while I'm alive at least!"

Ed and Shigure left.

"Um, what was the purpose of that?" Ed asked as they walked back to the house.

"He has a very short temper," Shigure said.

"Whatever," Ed said and the rest of the walk back.

(The Say They Were To Return)

"Ok," Izumi said walking out the door. "Did you tell everyone goodbye?"

"Yes," the three said following her.

"Um, I am sorry to be a bother, but do you mind if I come to watch?" Tohru asked. "I'm sorry if it seems like I am trying to pry, it's just so different and interesting."

"Sure, just follow us and don't get lost," Izumi said smiling.

"I am coming too, to make sure Miss Honda gets back safely," Yuki said walking up behind Tohru.

"Okay, come on," Izumi said and leaded then into the forest.

About ten minute later the group was standing where Ed had been found.

"Thank you guys for everything," Winry said. "And especially taking care of Ed, he can be difficult at times, and by that it is pretty much all the time."

"What's that supposed to mean?" Ed mumbled to Winry.

"Al, Ed, get to work," Izumi ordered and they began drawing the transmutation circle.

After that was done they waited.

"Well, this is it," Izumi said when the transmutation circle glowed blue.

They forest floor disappeared and was replaced with a black void with a giant eye in the center of it.

"Man, this was scary enough the first time," Winry said clutching her tool box.

"Just go on," Ed said and pushed her in. Al jumped in after her and then was followed by Izumi. "Thanks for every thing," Ed said to Yuki and Tohru and jumped in himself. The void closed up and Tohru and Yuki were left staring at the forest floor.

"Come on Miss Honda, lets go back," Yuki said as he began to walk away.

"Okay," Tohru said and followed him.

(Back in Amestris)

"Owww," Ed said and they were all dog piled on top of each other. Winry was on top, then Izumi, and then Al, with Ed left on the bottom.

"Long time no see, Fullmetal."

"Same to you, useless Colonel," Ed said smiling.

;-; Well that's the end. *sniffle* I actually wanted it to go on longer, but I had a list of what had to go in the story and there was nothing else on the list, so I had to end it. I hope you have enjoyed the story and please review and make sure your read and review my other stories. So, until the next time you decide to read one of my stories, farewell!

P.S. Sorry this chapter is so short
