Winry shifted the heavy suitcase on her shoulder, looking up at the town sign, Provenity, such an odd name for a town. Her grandmother lived here her entire life, her mother died just a few months ago, and a family friend here had offered to let her live here as long as she needed. She adjusted her one shouldered blue shirt with white sash a bit. Her white skirt, tights and blue wedges completing her outfit. She sighed and entered the tiny town ,only about 300 people lived in it. She smiled at the children playing hop scotch. She was seventeen though, even if she did want to play she didn't think she could. A teenage boy ran up to her. He had brown hair that was shaggy and reached his ears, his eyes a bright green. He wore a simple black shirt with a red skull, black shredded jeans and sneakers.
"Hey, you're the new girl right?" Winry nodded the boy holding out a hand. "Great, my names Robert, welcome to the small town of Provenity!" She giggled and shook his hand.
"My name's Winry, Hi!" Robert grinned at her.
"You already know the rumor don't you? Or myth as it may be." She shook her head. "Well this town was formed about eighty years ago, or in the fifty's. There's was this kid, Edward Elric, in the sixties, he was a very religious guy about our age, everyone here at the time was. Your virginity isn't supposed to be given away until your married, but he loved his girlfriend so much he gave it to her." Winry smiled.
"That's so sweet!" Robert sighed.
"It gets worse. She broke up with him without saying a word, she just started dating this other guy." Winry covered her mouth.
"That's awful!" Robert nodded,
"Yeah, he committed suicide a week after." Winry gasped before Robert grabbed her hand, "Here, i'll show you the last video of him." Winry let Robert lead her into the town's library, Robert flicking on the video. "His best friend, wait, didn't you say you're name was Winry?" Winry nodded,
"Yeah, I was named after my grandmother." Robert nodded,
"Then your grandmother was the best friend of Edward." He pointed to the poor quality video. The camera sat on something, a tall young man passing the camera. He had long blonde hair in a pony tail and golden eyes. He wore a white,button down, shirt with a black vest, black slacks and shoes. A woman came running after him.
"Edward!" She looked exactly like Winry, her hair in a bun and a long, blue, slightly puffed out, dress on. "Are you alright? You don't look too good." Edward turned to her slightly and smiled, both Winry and the image biting their lips, it was a fake smile.
"Yes, I'm perfectly fine, Winry." The woman pouted.
"Are you sure?" She grabbed his arm lightly, "Because you know I am here if you need to talk to someone, right Ed?" Edward seemed to contemplate soemthing before he nodded stiffly and smiled a bit more.
"Of course, I'm going to the park okay?" Winry nodded,
"Are you certain you don't want me to come with you?" Edward shook his head, holding up a hand,
"No, I'll be alright. Good bye, Winry." Winry nodded and he left and turned the corner. The image Winry bit her lip and walked after him. A gun shot made her start running. She screamed and dropped the camera, it on its side. Edward sat under the oak tree, a pistol in his hand, blood trailing down his cheek, staining his white shirt, leaning limply against the tree.
"Oh my god!" Winry ran to him, "Edward! EDWARD!" Edward's eyes were open, but a dull bronze, she bit her lip again, "Someone HELP!" Robert stopped the video,
"He had died instantly." Winry looked to the brink of tears.
"Oh my god..." Robert sighed.
"There's a rumor that you'll hear all around this town." Winry looked to him,
"Which is?" Robert sighed again, stuffing his hands in his pockets.
"That Edward haunts the town as a ghost. He's forced to stay here until he can truly love someone again. People claim they seem him in school and all over the place." Winry could only stare in shock.
"Forced...until he can love again?" Robert nodded,
"That's the myth."
