“You are so full of shit,” Winry said, as Ed rolled the car into park. “We are in the middle of nowhere. Are you two squatting in an abandoned hovel again, because I am not peeing in a bucket-"
"Jeez, Winry, relax,” Ed said. “Would I lie to you?"
"In a heartbeat."
Ed rolled his eyes and sighed. "Okay, maybe that was the wrong thing to ask, but I’m not lying to you, I swear.” He opened the door and swung his legs out, stretching as he exited the vehicle. Winry watched him suspiciously as he popped the trunk and pulled out his duffel, slinging the strap over his head. “You coming, or what?"

He held the door open and bowed. “After you, princess."
"You’re not joking, you’re just fucked in the head,” Winry said, and walked through the door. “Is Al really in here?"
"Probably sleeping on his laptop in the library,” Ed said, pulling the heavy door shut behind them both and locking it. “AL! We’re home, wake up!”
