Roy looked as bad as Edward felt, blood smudged into his hairline and dirt streaked across his face. All the same, Edward tried to muster a smile for him and largely failed, the throbbing pain in his right leg cutting through his expression like a knife. 

The medic’s tent was the exact opposite of private, and Edward couldn’t reach for Roy like he wanted desperately to. It seemed stupid, this charade they kept up in front of unknowing eyes, but Roy’s career depended on it, and Edward - Edward couldn’t say that he understood it, truly, but he didn’t want Roy to fail on his account either. 

"We’re going back out there," Roy said, his voice hoarse with the effects of the dessert. "They’ve taken the rail lines, we can’t get trains in or out." His look was significant even if the words were unsaid. "If we can’t get you - and the others here - back to civilization soon, you may lose your other leg." 

"Eh," Edward knocked on his left knee. "Automail’s not so bad, really." There was something in Roy’s eyes that scared him. He wanted to grab at the other man, pull him down into a kiss but he was so aware of the other eyes in the tent and his resentment burned. "Lieutenant Hawkeye’s going with you, right?" 

"As if I could ever escape her," Roy managed a small, tight smile. "You just concentrate on getting well, Fullmetal. I’ll - we’ll be back soon." 

Edward nodded his head, licking his cracked lips. He wanted to say the words, they bubbled in his throat like acid but he couldn’t, he couldn’t take the risk. “Yeah,” he said, and tried not to let his desperation show through. “I’ll be waiting for your next order, you good-for-nothing colonel.”

You are an idiot," Edward Elric said, with about as much patience as he could muster. He yanked at the bandage and Rian Martin winced as it tightened around his hands. "And don’t you dare even breathe a word about what you’re thinking right now." 

"I wasn’t thinking nothin’," Rian grumbled, watching as Edward bandaged his bleeding hands. The pain had dulled to a mild throb, it wasn’t the first time he had ‘accidentally-on-purpose’ ignited the deformed transmutation circles scarred onto his palms, but it was the first time the rebound had affected him so painfully. 

"I’ll say." Edward’s military jacket was lost somewhere, and there was dirt and a small bit of Rian’s blood smudged on to the normally-immaculate white button-down shirt he wore underneath it. "I could have sworn I told you to keep out of this." He held both of Rian’s hands, palms-up, in his own hands. Even through the gloves he wore, Rian could feel the cool, heavy weight of the prosthetic automail hand. The bandages were thin, and small strips of red had already started to bleed through. "Rian, you cannot keep using these arrays, you’re going to get yourself killed." 

"I’m fine!" Rian yanked his hands away suddenly, blushing furiously as he tucked them under his armpits. It wasn’t like the colonel to even begin to act concerned about him, and this entire situation was dizzying. "I’m fine, they’re fine, why don’t you just go away and leave me alone?" 

He refused to meet Edward’s eyes, and after a moment of silence the colonel sighed deeply and got to his feet. The bottom half of his uniform was just as dirty as Rian was, there was a tear through the left leg that exposed the automail there as well. Rian glanced aside. “I’m sorry.”

"I can’t," Winry said, her voice exhausted. She had been sitting up late, a clean white cloth spread over the kitchen table and the innards of a client’s automail laid out before her. "I can’t do this any more, Al. I just can’t." 

Alphonse had been sitting up with her - automail was a bit beyond his ken, but it was a little too warm in the upstairs at the moment, and besides, if he set foot in the same room that Edward was in right now, no one would leave happy. 

He looked at the ceiling as Winry covered her face with both hands. She wasn’t crying this time, just exhausted, and Alphonse could relate. It was weary work, trying to heal someone who did not want to be saved, and Alphonse for the life of him could not figure out what was going on in his brother’s brain right now. 

Edward, who had not spoken a word in the two weeks since he had been home. He had not hardly eaten a bite, he barely moved, sitting up in his bed and staring silently out the window, looking for something no one else could see.   

Alphonse understood he had been hurt. Everyone had been hurt in the conflict, it was hard to lose someone you were so close to - but this living death that Edward seemed to exist in was almost worse. And nothing seemed like it would snap him out of it, not even when Alphonse had punched him. 

Winry ran her hands up to her bandanna, leaving small flecks of oil on her cheeks and forehead. She sighed deeply, and looked at Alphonse, eyes red-rimmed. “We have got to do something,” she said firmly. “He’s family.” 

"I know," Alphonse said. "I just don’t know what."
