Al slowly walked over to their room, where Ed had ran to. He slowly creaked the door open to see the young blonde hiding in a corner, head down held in his hands as he shivered, his jacket covering his back. Al then sighed walking over to him.
"Brother...I want answers...why did you attack her like that?..You almost killed her."
Ed didn't reply just sitting there as his breathing became more calm, as he slowly moved his hands away, Al noticed one of his hands was lined with long nails almost ripping the glove.
"Brother...please say something, you can't-"
"Oh just shut up..." Ed snapped at him, as he slowly got up, Al stepping back. Ed then looked over his brother, a blank expression as his crimson eyes looked up at the armor.
"Mortals...there so chatty...I see escaping that once normal life as a opportunity..it was a burden trying to be human..."
Ed then sighed, as he turned to the suit of armor as he raised his clawed hand, his eyes lacking any feeling. He then poked the armored boy with a claw.
"Tell me....'Al' correct?...Do you think you can hide in that armor for long?..i know you have a seal...you are a soul trapped in rust...how pathetic..." He then pulled away. Al only looked down at him perplexed.
"Ed, just stop talking like this...this isn't you..."
"Oh but it isn't...it's his desires calling...makes me a little 'lose' under the glove persay...I need to feed.." Ed gave an evil smirk up at Al, his fangs glistening in the sunlight. Al gasped and gave a scowl grabbing Ed's wrist tightly.
"Give my brother control! Stop playing these sick games!" Ed only looked a bit confused.
"Games?...you see the words I give to you as mere tricks?..." Ed then smirked as his metal arm grabbed the armor's arm, slowly denting it into a tight knot.
"Oh boy..you are the young one alright..naive...and stupid.." Al only pulled back, trying to fix his arm, however it was dented beyond repair with normal use. Ed then sighed stretching as he yawned, his fangs being bared.
"You are now just wasting my time to feed..." Al watched as Ed walked past him slowly, but stopped him by grabbing him by the collar. Ed noticed and growled. He then proceeded to raise his other arm.
"Forgive me brother.." He then striked his brother in the face, hard enough to break rock as a bit of blood came out of the side of Ed's mouth.
Ed's once crimson eyes returned as he grunted in pain feeling the pain from the hit.
"OW! The fuck Al?!" Alphonse only let go, and sighed rubbing his wrist still broken. "Your welcome Ed.." Ed noticed his broken wrist and gave into the worry walking over as he held it. "Al, how the heck did you break your wrist like this?.."
"You did Ed. You threatened me, then broke my wrist to keep me out of the way...though, I hit you to knock that side out..." Ed was surprised as he said what he heard. He hurt how own brother?... Ed then sighed clapping his hands as he used Alchemy to fix his brother's arm. It restored in a flash of blue.
Ed then walked away from Al sitting on the bed, his head down silent. Al slowly walked over, upset.
"Brother...it's ok..I'm sorry for saying it like that..I-"
"No..I deserve it Al..I'ma a vampire now I guess...I'm a monster.." Ed then rested his head in his hands shivering slightly.
Al sat next to him putting his metal arm over his shoulders. "Brother...please don't be like that...we'll fix this...we always do"
Ed then looked up at him slightly, his golden eyes now longer showed the usual fire, but more like a dead corpse, like the day when Roy visited them back in Risembol years ago.
"Al...it be better if I leave..."
"Brother, no, you can't..."
