Summary: Ed! Your new leg is ready!" Winry called from her workshop, taking off her gloves and hefting the leg onto her shoulder.
"Ed! Your new leg is ready!" Winry called from her workshop, taking off her gloves and hefting the leg onto her shoulder.
In the living room, Ed groaned. "Come on, Winry, why do you keep experimenting with my leg? It works fine!" he said, while his brother chuckled at his expense. He shot Al a dirty look.
"Because I want to practice these new techniques," Winry replied, stepping into the living room. "And because I'm going through nine months of misery to carry your child. So drop your pants."
"Yeah, that's what you said last night, too," he grumbled, undoing his belt and shimmying out of his pants before taking a seat back on the couch. "That's what got me into this mess in the first place."
"Oh, hush," she said, setting the artificial leg down next to Ed on the floor.
"Want any help?" Al asked, setting aside his book. "I can hold him down for you."
Winry laughed. "That won't be necessary, Al, but thank you." She pulled out her spanner, loosening the connections holding Ed's current leg in and detached the leg. She set it aside and lined up the new leg. "Ready?"
Ed gripped the couch tightly in his hands and ground his teeth together. "Ready," he said.
"One, two, three!" On the three, she attached the new leg and Ed made a bunch of pained noises through his teeth Winry patted his flesh leg. "Easy, Ed,easy."
After a moment, the worst of the pain passed and Ed relaxed. "I wish you'd experiment on Paninya instead of me," he grumbled. "I'm getting tired of the constant reconnects."
"I don't because her legs belong to Dominic," Winry replied. "Now, once you're ready, get up and see how the leg feels."
Ed took a few minutes before getting to his feet, walking around cautiously with his new leg. "The response time is faster," he commented.
Winry grinned. "That's what I was going for. Good to know it worked."
Ed walked over to Winry and kissed her cheek. "Good work, as usual."
She laughed. "Suck up," she accused, then picked up Ed's old leg. "You can put your pants back on, I'll get started on dinner once I get this back to my workshop."
Al stood up. "I'll go get it started for you, Winry."
"You're both suck ups," she said as Ed got back into his pants. "But thank you, Al."
As she walked back to the workshop, she was smiling. I have the best family in the world, she thought.
