A | 1761 Nelson | Morning

[Riza woke early as per usual, but found she was freezing. Even wrapped under the blankets something didn't feel right. There was no weight in the bed next to her, and a moment of abject panic resulted in her groping under the pillow for the gun she knew was there--except it wasn't.]

[She bolted up out of bed, and caught a glance of herself in the mirror and what in the ever loving hell is going on?]

What the hell is going on?!

B | Phone | Filtered to Roy Mustang

Sir? I think we have a bit of a problem...

C | Around Town

[Hi there, Mayfield. There is a rather cross looking "General Armstrong" walking through town. Not that looking cross is unusual for her, of course, but something seems a bit off about the woman.]

[Approach? Be forewarned, she is carrying a sword.]

Title Goes Here  
Action - 5725 Cunningham Lane - Morning - for Riza Hawkeye

[How long has it been? A month? A month and a half? Far too long since the Valentines debacle, which makes it far too long since he's had a normal conversation with his subordinate. To call the air between them 'tense' would be an understatement. It's not the same kind of tense as with Olivier - they're certainly not in danger of killing each other anytime soon - but they hardly seem like the same duo they were previously.]

[Sure, things are still professional between them. After all, they're nothing if not professionals. But that underlying warmth, the banter, the familiarity - it's vanished away, leaving only an awkwardness that Roy Mustang refuses to bear one minute further. He's a Colonel. He's the future Fuhrer of Amestris]

[And he will not let his life be dictated by awkwardness and inaction. Not when there's something he can do. Unfortunately, with the way they've been avoiding each other, that something is to wake up ungodly early, grab a chair, and sit himself in it blocking the exit to their bedroom.]

[Let the waiting game begin]

Action - Evening - Grocery Store - Open

[Mustang's out and about doing some grocery shopping! Not that he really cares, he's just throwing TV dinners into a basket without a care in the world. Funny though - that massive bandage wasn't on his right hand yesterday. Once his cart is properly stacked, he nods at it happily]

That should do for another week.

➤ 9th Transmutation  
A. » Phone 「Backdated to the end of the Break event.」

[There is not an appropriate enough word in the English language to describe how Ed feels right now. His mother was kidnapped and experimented on and when she was found the next day no one would let him see her. He had no idea what was going on. Had no idea what happened to her or if she was ok. No matter who he asked, no one would tell him anything.

Then this morning he woke up, went downstairs while trying to avoid Al's drone and found his mother in the kitchen. Except it wasn't her. Not really.

A few minutes later he picks up the phone and makes a call. His voice is strained, but there's definitely a bit of a bite to it. He says two words before hanging up. Feel free to call him back.

She's gone.

B. » Phone 「Backdated to 2/13」

I'm done trying to hide this. Hell, I don't know why I ever bothered in the first place it's not like I was fooling anyone, not even myself. I just didn't want to see her get hurt because of me. Didn't want someone to try and use her against me, but I'm sick of pretending.

Winry Rockbell, I love you.

You're amazing and beautiful and you're a goddamn mechanical genius and... you deserve so much more than anything I could ever give you. I've put you through hell. I've made you worry yourself sick time after time because I did something stupid. I've made you cry more times than I can count and I hate that I'm the one who does it, but... that never stopped you. Despite all of that, despite every attempt I made at pushing you away to keep you safe you still stayed. You still showed up at the hospital a day after I wound up there, you still... you were still there for me.

I'm sorry I never said this before. I'm sorry I'm saying it here, of all places, but I've heard love makes you do stupid things. So, let's just chalk it up to that, ok?

C. » Action 「Around Town - Backdated to 2/14」

[The effects of the iris have finally gone away and today he is, thankfully, not professing his love for his mechanic. But he has the strangest craving for dairy.]

Ugh, I would kill for a glass of milk right now.

[.......................... wait a second. EDWARD WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?]
