Summary: There was a game that Ed hated.
There was a game that Ed hated. Oh, how he hated that game. The flinching game.
Winry was good at it. She always made Ed flinch, raising that wrench of hers and pretending to hurl it at him. Thing was, since she actually did throw it at him half the time, he couldn't tell when she was faking or not.
"Two for flinching!" she'd cry and then punch his good arm twice. Hard. And she was deceptively strong for a girl. Unsexy, unfeminine, crazy gearhead.
Al, at least, was nice enough to punch his automail arm, which was probably less a nice gesture to Ed and more because Al had trouble controlling his strength in that armor and that armor was built for fighting. Two good punches from those metal fists would leave bruises that wouldn't fade for days.
The worst part was, he could never trick either of them into flinching. Winry flat-out refused to believe that Ed would ever have the nerve to actually hit her- if he did, he would've done it ages ago. And Al seemed to be able to tell whether Ed was bluffing or not.
