Feelings Let Out

Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye was suddenly interrupted in her thoughts by a loud but yet distant rumbling.

Since the headquarter was in the middle of a bustling city, she first shrugged it off as being someone else's business. After all, it could be anything. A car crash, sounds from the training grounds, a gas leak gone out of control.

A second rumbling sound was heard. This time a little closer. Riza had been on enough battlefields to instantly be able to rule out some possible causes. It wasn't mortar fire, and it wasn't an explosion. It sounded more like the sounds one can hear in a quarry. Stones cracking and tumbling down.

At the third crashing noise, she gave up and rose from her chair, ready to go and investigate the mysterious sound.

"Don't worry, lieutenant. It's nothing dangerous." Roy Mustang sat at his desk, sorting through a pile of documents and apparently not being overly worried of the sounds coming from the living quarters of the HQ.

She looked again at the door leading out in the hallway, and then back at the calm colonel. Unsure about what action was appropriate.

"Have you ever been in a mood when you felt like you just wanted to raze a wall or two?" Roy asked calmly.

"I have."

"The thing is, Ed's an alchemist. He's actually capable of doing it."


A fourth crashing sound echoed through the building. Seconds later followed by a softer, more wooden sound.

"Maybe we ought to have him study the concept of 'supporting walls' sometime soon then," Hawkeye said serenely.
