It was Ed’s fault (really, it usually was, no one ran smack into danger more with less of a plan than he) but they both laughed, Ed on his ass in the dirt, scorch marks on the sleeves of of his jacket and soot in his hair. He laughed hard and freely, head back and eyes closed and Roy just grinned, watching his merriment.
“Shoulda known there was a gas leak,” Ed gasped, wiping tears of mirth from his face and smearing the dirt and soot in the process.
“I told you I smelled something funny,” Roy leaned back against the car, still smiling.
“Yeah, I thought you meant- yah, never mind what I thought you meant.” Ed sat forward, and then heaved himself to his feet. “We should get going, that was one hell of a fireball, I’m surprised no one has called the cops yet."
As he spoke, the first faint traces of sirens could be heard carrying through the trees.
"Definitely our cue to exit,” Roy slung his rifle into the back seat of the car and opened the driver’s side door.
Ed shoved him aside and glared. “This is MY car, Mustang. You can drive it when I’m dead."
Roy rolled his eyes and trotted around the front of the vehicle, sliding into the passenger side seat as Ed hesitated, looking back at the raging inferno the old abandoned house had become.
"Oi, Ed,” Roy leaned down so he could see Ed’s standing face. “Not getting arrested again: a high priority. Get your ass in the car."
Surprisingly, Ed actually did as he was told, slamming the drivers’s side door shut and turning the key in the ignition. "You really think this takes care of things?"
"God, I hope so,” Roy muttered, as they drove off.
