“Seriously?” Ed asked.

“What?” Al replied. “Something wrong?”

“Yes, there’s something fucking wrong!”

Al raised his eyebrows in question.

“Where the hell is my bookshelf!?”

“Oh!” Al laughed. “I moved it!”

“Moved…? Why?”

“I wanted to make room!”

“Room for what? Al, you better not have adopted another cat-!”

“You like them, don’t deny it. Anyways, no I didn’t adopt a new cat.”

Ed mimicked Al and raised his eyebrow, arms folded across his chest.

“I bought a dining room table.”

“A table?!”

Al shrugged, “It’s not like you’re going to be here much longer anyways.”

“…not be here? Al what are you talking about?”

“Oh ho, he didn’t ask you yet?”

“Who didn’t ask me what? Al, what’s going on?”

“Weeeelll, I guess you’ll see. In any case your books are in boxes-” Ed opened his mouth to speak but Al kept talking. “And they’ll stay there. At least for a couple of days.”

Ed continued to scowl. “I want to know who is asking me what.”

“You’ll find out soon enough, don’t be a jerk about it.”

*~*~*~*

Ed sat on the edge of Roy’s desk, talking loudly and with irritation in his voice, “…and then he tells me I’m not going to be here!”
Roy didn’t look up. “Roy?”

“Yes, Ed?” Roy looked up.

“Are you even listening?”

“What?” At Ed’s scathing look Roy relented. “I’m sorry, but I’m exhausted. I’ve been swamped with paperwork and…other things. I’m a bit stressed.”

“What’s got you so stressed that’s not work? I mean, it’s not like your brother is forcing you to move out of your house. Where does he expect me to  - oh.”

Roy looked up tiredly. “It was supposed to be a surprise. But like you, your brother isn’t very good at keeping secrets.”

“Move in with you? Roy, we fight, a lot.”

“Yes, we do, but we also get along. How many days in a row have you stayed, how many nights a month? Ed, at this point you spent for the last two months all weekend at my place. Friday through Monday morning. Then, Monday through Thursday you would ‘sleep over’ as well. Ed, you practically live with me. You’ve got dresser space and closet space, you’re starting to take over my study and my bathroom. Ed, is it so horrible to move in with me?”

Ed’s eyes were large and round. “You want me to move in with you? You really want me in your house?”

“Ed, of course I do. I enjoy your company.”

Ed smiled. “I love you too, Bastard,” he said and planted a kiss on the General’s mouth. “I’ll see you at home then.”

Roy smiled back and raised his hand in farewell. “See you tonight, Edward. Oh, by the way, are you going to cook dinner?”

Ed turned and raised his eyes, arms spread out, “What do I look like, a domesticated housewife, so no you shit, I’m ordering takeout.”

Roy sighed sadly.
