The train rumbled along, on its way to Rush Valley. Winry and Alphonse sat in silence as Ed snored away. Winry glanced over at him. He’s so cute when he’s asleep, she thought. Just seeing the young alchemist made her smile.
Winry stretched and yawned. Watching Ed sleep was making her tired, too. She sat back in the train seat and dozed off. As she slept, her head moved onto Ed’s shoulder. She put one arm across him, and Ed unknowingly hugged her closer.
Al watched this all through his white soul eyes. If he had been able to show expressions on his metal face, he would have been smiling.
“We’re here,” Al said sometime later. Winry and Ed’s eyes opened. They noticed each other’s positions and jumped away quickly, both blushing hotly. Al chuckled. “Let’s go, lovebirds.”
“Shut up!” Ed and Winry said simultaneously. But, if only for a second, their hands were intertwined as the trio moved off the train and into the station.
