Edward Elric, famous inventor and son of the ruling lord, has been taken captive by Colonel Mustang and his ragtag militia.
The door to his small prison opened and he sat up quickly, eyes narrowing as he recognized his visitor.
Colonel Mustang stared down his nose at Ed. He shut the door firmly and knocked twice on the wood. The sound of the lock sliding into place on the other side of the door echoed through the room.
“Are you ready to cooperate?” The colonel asked smoothly.
Edward glared up at his captor. “No.”
Wood scraped across the floor as Mustang dragged a chair over towards Edward’s bed. He crossed his legs after he’d sat down and gave Edward a contemplative look. If Ed’s hands were free, he would have punched the smug look off the bastard’s face.
“You do know that you’re not getting out of here until you help us?”
He’d been moved by the militia’s plight to a point, but he couldn’t fully bring himself to believe what they were saying. He didn’t want to believe it, because the repercussions would break him. If what they said were true, then Ed had been kept in the dark about a lot of wrongdoing and he didn’t want to think that his family was capable of what they described.
But, there was still the niggling doubt of what if. Colonel Mustang’s arguments had been compelling, and taken out of context, Ed could even bring himself to agree with their cause somewhat, but his pride as an Elric and anger over the fact that they’d dared to kidnap him kept him from giving in. People who were in the right shouldn’t stoop to kidnapping and coercion. A small part of his brain argued that it was necessary, that there wouldn’t have been any other way to get to him.
If they’d sent in anyone other than this smug bastard to deal with him, he probably would have caved by now.
