Sixth Miracle

[Lion had gotten a feeling of foreboding when a package arrived for him on Valentine's Day; he still remembered the events from Christmas all too well. At first he tried to just leave it in his closet so he could forget about it, but eventually he couldn't take it anymore. Whatever it was, Lion figured it would be best to just open it and let the town do its worst sooner rather than later.

So Lion opened it...and the memories came back. All of them. And they were all memories of her, of their relationship, and how they'd had to carry it out behind his family's back. Lion had hated to go against Krauss and Natsuhi's wishes, but...she was important to him. More than he could put into words.


Winry-san...may I come and visit you?

Lion... I'm sorry, I can't believe I forgot... Maybe, I should come visit you...


[identity profile] 2011-02-15 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
It's alright...I shouldn't have forgotten either.

If you feel that way, than by all means. I'll be waiting for you.


[identity profile] 2011-02-15 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
Okay... I'll be there soon.


[identity profile] 2011-02-15 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
[Lion hangs up and sits in the living room, heart pounding. How could he have gone so long without these memories?

When Lion hears the knock at the door, his hand shakes slightly as he opens it. Lion tries to keep his voice level as he speaks.

...Winry-san. It's good to see you.

[Understatement of the year, but Lion's trying to stay under control here.]


[identity profile] 2011-02-15 02:36 am (UTC)(link)

Lion! Lion... I-it's good to see you too...

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 02:41 am (UTC)(link)
[There's a small sound of surprise from Lion when Winry hugs him; he's still not that used to being hugged so suddenly. But soon all of the etiquette that's been drummed into Lion over the years flies out the window, and he's hugging her back just as tightly.]

Yes. ...I've missed you. And I'm glad I remember you again.

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 02:52 am (UTC)(link)
Mm... Me too. I can't believe I ever let this place make me forget...

Oh, sorry... I was acting impulsive again, I hope I didn't...

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 02:55 am (UTC)(link)
[A small laugh.] No, it's alright. It's not as though my parents or my grandfather are here to correct me.

[That's right. Lion's parents aren't here. And that would mean...]

Though it is strange...not having those responsibilities anymore.

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 03:06 am (UTC)(link)
Well, you've still got a lot more manners and etiquette than I do, and that's all on your own. Gotta count for something, right?

Though I dunno about you, but not have my old responsibilities makes me a bit antsy.

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
I suppose it does...

Ah, I imagine it would. I've always admired your work ethic, Winry-san. I'd say that would count for something too, wouldn't it?

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 03:20 am (UTC)(link)
Ahaha. I guess it would. Though I wouldn't be so inspired if it weren't for you. I mean, I love the work, but if I get good enough and invent something useful then...

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 12:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, I know.

[Lion sighs.] My parents have always been hard to please, though...

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 04:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Don't you worry about that! I don't plan on giving up anytime soon. I've got too much to fight for. B-but enough about that... It's been a while since we could spend time together and not worry about being caught.

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 04:59 pm (UTC)(link)
...yes, you're right.

That's true...we won't have much to worry about while we're here. What would you like to do? I'm up for anything.

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 05:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Well~. It has been a while since I had a nice walk around town? Maybe we can find something to do on the way? I'd been thinking I'd have a picnic, but...

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 05:24 pm (UTC)(link)
I think a walk would be just fine. After all, it's been a while since we've spent time with just the two of us.

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 05:28 pm (UTC)(link)
And this time, we won't need to worry about who sees us.

Shall we go, then?

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 05:38 pm (UTC)(link)
We shall.

[Takes her hand...albeit a little hesitantly, since Lion's still kind of new to this whole "relationship" thing.]

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 08:45 pm (UTC)(link)

G-great! This way! I... I think this is the quickest way to the park from here.

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 09:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh gosh hand-holding. Why is Lion feeling kind of awkward all of a sudden...]

Ah...y-yes, of course. That sounds nice...

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 09:15 pm (UTC)(link)

S-so... You've been in Mayfield a while, huh? I feel bad that we don't cross paths much... Did you get a job here?

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 09:21 pm (UTC)(link)
[Lion's blushing like crazy in the meantime, though he's trying to keep it under control. Oh god Lion is holding hands with a girl what do]

I did...I teach at the high school. And how have you been...?

[identity profile] 2011-02-15 09:35 pm (UTC)(link)

A-ah, um, well I attend the high school and work as a waitress, um... F-funny, I haven't seen you at school yet...

[identity profile] 2011-02-16 12:40 am (UTC)(link)
[Two awkward young people = either major awkwardness or major cuteness. You decide!]

Well, I suppose that's because we've gone for a while without our memories of each other...I-I mean, at least that's what I think.

[identity profile] 2011-02-16 01:05 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah... I guess so. Well, now we remember! No need to sulk over the past, right?

[identity profile] 2011-02-16 02:57 am (UTC)(link)
...right. Let's make the most of the time we have.
