Winry glared. “I don’t understand, Ed. What’s the problem?”

He winced, rubbing the back of his neck, having a hard time looking at her. “Eh…”

“That’s not an answer! You’re really not explaining yourself very well.” She folded her arms, her brow furrowing even deeper. “I thought you wanted to get married!” Winry’s face suddenly cleared, and fell. “It’s not…you don’t…?”

Her expression was heartbreaking and Ed waved his hands frantically. “No! No, I do! I mean. Yes! I want to get married. It’s just that.” He groaned. Why was this so hard to say? “Without that military research grant, I’m poor!” Peeping at her through his bangs, he winced, waiting for the wrench.

“Huh?”

Okay, so that was…kind of cute, that confused look she was giving him. But Ed felt bad for making her feel bad. “I’m poor, okay? I don’t have the money now to support us. Not the way you deserve to be support – you’re laughing?”

She was. Hard, doubled over, making him feel like an idiot. “What?”

“Ed, I’m an automail mechanic! I have my own money! I can support us both!” She grabbed him in a hug and Ed decided, well, whatever happened, at least hugs were really nice…and might lead to other things, too, if he nuzzled her neck just right.

Pinako sucked on the mouthpiece of her pipe, staring at the quartet – three kids and a dog – at the bottom of the porch steps. “How’d you kids get to be such a mess?”

“It was amazing, Granny!” Winry took a step forward, stopping before her muddy foot touched the first step.

“Yeah, there were all these cows!” Ed waved his arms, slinging thick, still wet mud in his enthusiasm.

Winry grabbed Al by his shirt collar. “And Al tripped!”

“And fell down in front of the cows!” Ed went on.

Al smiled, the type of pained smile that let Pinako know the other two were either exaggerating or out and out lying. “Is that so,” she said finally. “Al, is that true?”

“Uh,” he ducked his head, wincing.

“That’s what I thought.” Pinako stared down at them all, Ed’s fierce scowl at his brother and Winry’s pout, and Al’s lowering head and protruding lip. “Well, you three sure have some imaginations,” she said. “Get cleaned up with the hose, you three, you’re not coming inside and tracking mud everywhere. I’ll bring you some fresh clothes out. And after you’re cleaned up, we’ll talk about just what really happened.”
