Summary: What goes up, most come down. It is the law of gravity.
Notes: #2 metaphor and #43 empire

 






They had built and empire and it stood strong and tall against the world. Their bickering was more an emblem than anything else. They had watched him grow-up, gain knowledge and were very proud of him. And sometimes when that hair of his caught the sun, or the red coat was stark against the background, Mustang thought he could see Edward in them.

 

On days when working, he could see the occasional blue of a suit, or the flash of black and he would be staring into familiar eyes expecting a snide short comment or a “Fullmetal” but there was nothing, just a nod in passing. And he was just one of the shadows among many, they didn’t bicker here, and in his mind, he really did miss the Bastard and their arguments.

 

Their metaphor had been an empire, one they had built together, and when it lost a block, it all came crashing down.
