I hope you die in pain... -.-

Colonel Mustang was deep in thought. Sure, he had let a child join the military before, but that was different. That was Edward Elric. He never thought he'd make that same choice again, by how could he refuse this girl? She apparently had no skill at alchemy, yet she could transform herself into anything. He'd never seen anything like that. 

Mustang shifted in his seat and glanced at the girl who had introduced herself as Tabitha Kane. She wasn't much younger than Ed. And this gift of hers...

"COLONEL!!!" a voice screamed from the hallway. The man facepalmed. Of course, the Fullmetal Alchemist HAD to show up at a time like this. The girl glanced at the entrance to his office, slightly startled. 

The heavy door burst open, almost ripped off its hinges. Standing there was a quite angry teenaged alchemist. Edward strode into the room, his younger brother following behind him. The red coat that the boy always wore was ripped, exposing his auto-mail arm, a consequence of his breaking the most sacred rule of Alchemy. The fact the he had even survived through that experience had been a huge factor that had pushed Mustang to accept him among State Alchemists. 

"EXPLAIN THIS," Ed yelled, rudely yanking the Colonel out of his thoughts and pointing to himself. 

"You lost a fight?" Mustang raised an eyebrow, taking in the sight before him. The boy's normally braided blond hair spilled over his shoulders, which were covered in blood. The metal of his auto-mail was scratched and his arm was handing at an odd angle. The expression on his face was furious. The Colonel marveled once again at the alchemist's endless energy. Didn't he ever get tired?

"Who's the shortie?" the girl asked, causing the Mustang to wince. 

Here it comes.

Edward exploded. "WHO ARE YOU CALLING SO SHORT YOU CAN BARELY SPOT HIM WHEN HE'S STANDING IN A CARPETED ROOM, YOU DAUGHTER OF A-

Alphonse quickly grabbed his brother, holding him back from pummeling Tabitha into a  pulp. "Brother! Calm down!" When Ed didn't pay him any mind, Al pressed his metal hand over the alchemist's mouth. 

Once it seemed safe enough, Mustang introduced the girl to them, an idea sparking in his mind. "This is Tabitha Kane, she wants to be a State Alchemist."

"Why would you want to do that?" Edward mumbled, still pouting. 

Tabitha threw her long black hair over her shoulder. "That's none of you business. And for your information, you're interrupting my appointment."

That seemed to remind Ed of his earlier rage, which promptly spiked his temper again. "I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR APPOINTMENT!! YOU HAVE SOME EXPLAINING TO DO!" he pointed at Mustang accusingly. 

"About what?" the Colonel sighed. If this kid hadn't been the most amazing alchemist he had ever seen,the man would've kicked him out a long time ago.  

"A State Alchemist attacked us on our way here ," Alphonse explained, doing a better job of it that his ranting brother. 

"EXACTLY!! HOW WOULD YOU-" Edward started, only to be interrupted by Tabitha again, who was apparently outraged by the brothers' appearance during her appointment.  

"SHUT UP!! THIS IS MY MEETING!! I DON'T CARE IF HOMUNCULUS GOT YOU, I-" suddenly she stopped, her hands flying to her mouth. 

Edward's anger disappeared in a matter of seconds, only to be replaced by shock. "What did you say?" he asked quietly. 

Mustang was equally interested. Homunculus? Artificially created humans? What could possibly make her believe they existed? 

"I-I..." was her only answer. Then suddenly, she regained her wits. "I'm coming back here tomorrow, Colonel. This runt better not still be when I do."

With that, she stomped out the door. Even from the hallway, she could hear Edward's infuriated shouts. 

"Runt?RUNT?? WHO ARE YOU TO CALL ME A RUNT?? I HOPE YOU DIE IN PAIN, YOU HEAR ME?? IN PAIN!!!!"
