Chapter 28 : " Sharing"
Ling followed Charlotte all the way to her room, basically stepping on her heels. "Oh Charlotte! I'm so happy to have you hone!" Edward wasnt as happy, walking behind her with a distasteful face.
"Yea. We heard ya." Mason followed in tow with the rest of the teens. He wasn't as excited to be back as everybody else was, mainly because he had witnessed his worst nightmare the day before. Truth be told, he was slightly jealous, he had only known her for two months, though he felt like they had bonded that night on the roof. In other words, he didn't want to be with her, and he didn't want her to be with Edward.
The apartments were untouched by time, everything was perfect and in it's place since they had left. Winry didnt bother unpacking, she was headed home to help Pinako run their business. With hugs all around, save for Charlotte, she left and left Charlotte with a big empty apartment once again. The boys meanwhile, were just throwing their suit cases where ever they pleased and returned to their natural routine. Eat, sleep, read, repeat. At least, for the Elrics. Ling was the odd one out and did most of the sleeping and eating.
"You know," Alphonse said from one end of the room.
"Charlotte might be kinda lonely. Winry left." Edward and Ling nodded consecutively.
"I'll go over and-" Ling jumped to his feet and went to dash fro the door when Edward pulled his arm back.
"I'll go." Alphonse laughed from inside his cool armor.
"You're getting pretty chummy with her." Edward shook his head and waved his hands in front of his face, thinking it would distract them from his increasingly red face.
"I've already talked to you about this remember? We're just friends! Okay bye!" He darted for the door, running as fast as his legs would carry him.
"Hey." Edward closed the door behind him as he slinked inside.
"Oh, hey." Charlotte was sitting cross-legged with a bowl of skittles set between her legs on the couch. The television flashed pictures of a man standing in front of a green screen.
"I love Daniel Tosh." She said quirkily.
"Listen, the guys were concerned that you would be lonely all by yourself. Wanna stay with us?" She flew from her couch and rushed to get her clothes.
"Of course! I love you!" She stopped when she realized what just just exited her mouth.
"You guys! I meant you guys." She nodded to herself and headed next door.
"Hey guys!" Charlotte ran into the room to greet everyone.
"We have an issue." Alphonse said suddenly. Everybody looked to him as he looked out to the beds.
"There's three beds, one couch, and five of us." Ling flew to Charlotte and giggled wildly.
"We can share!"
