His black eyes watched her pull her gun. Rain mixed with blood to plaster his jet-black hair to his forehead. It was raining buckets which made vision difficult enough. Add that to the gash across his head bleeding heavily and his visibility was almost down to zero. The woman in the black dress and gloves in front of him had used her knife-like fingernails to slash his head. He had fought with her for an hour now. He had been holding his own and had even started to win when the rain started. With his gloves soaked and his alchemy useless, the tables had turned and now Roy Mustang's body was covered in gashes. Many of them were deep and since he had been fighting for his life, he was losing blood and energy at a rapid pace. When he had fallen to one knee was when she had stepped in front of him.
Her face was twisted into a mask of rage as she fired again and again. He blonde hair had fallen loose and clung to her neck and shoulders. Her brown eyes were burning with anger. Her blue uniform was plastered to her body by the rain. She was soaked to the bone as she reloaded and continued to fire. She was shooting to kill. Riza Hawkeye had never looked more angry...or more beautiful to him. She was risking her life for him, but Roy didnt know if it was because of his rank or something else.
Riza continued to fire at Lust, but she was too quick. "Damn you! Stand still and fight!" Lust just continued to dodge and her face took on a cold smirk. "Aww, whats wrong? Are you upset because I hurt your boyfriend?" "DAMN YOU!" Riza shouted and fired again. From where he was, Mustang could only watch helplessly. He couldnt do a damn thing! He couldnt even stand and even if he could, he was useless in this weather! He kept his eyes on the fight, praying nothing happened to Hawkeye. But that prayer went unanswered as Lust lept from her high vantage point and leapt on Hawkeye. They now were locked in combat, grappling to gain control.
"Dammit!", Mustang thought to himself, "I have to do something!" As he stood, the fat companion of the woman rushed him to knock him back down again. Mustnag struggled to keep this thing, Gluttony he though he had heard him be called, away from him. But unfortunately he was also struggling to stay on his feet due to blood loss and exhaustion. He was losing the battle. Why had he insisited he and Hawkeye do this assignement alone? It was supposed to just be a simple stake out. Now they were fighting for their lives...and they were losing. If only it would stop raining! Hawkeye was now out of bullets. She had a pair of dry gloves for him but he couldnt get to them. At that moment Gluttony swung a huge fist to knock the wind from Mustang. It connected but Mustang stayed on his feet. All he had to do was dodge and he'd be fine! All he had to do was focus. All he had to do...
Hawkeye's scream of pain distracted him. He turned his head to see that Lust had stabbed her through her shoulder. Crimson blood sprayed and poured down her shouler like the rain from the sky. "NOOO! Riza!" Mustang screamed. He started toward her when she screamed "Colonel watch out!" Then Mustang felt a crashing blow to his back. Gluttony stood on him with one foot and forced him to watch his worst nightmare unfold. Lust drew her blade-like fingers across Hawkeye's throat, slitting it. "NOOOO!" Somehow he broke free and made it to her side. "Riza? Riza! Answer me!" Riza Hawkeye looked up at him, but the light in her eyes was beginning to fade. He was losing her. "Look at me! You're gonna make it!"
Riza Hawkeye shook her head. "Roy..." she whispered. "Dont try to talk! Save your strength. You're gonna make it." She shook her head again. They both knew he was lying. "Roy theres something you need to know." She winced but took his hand and continued, "I was going to tell you when we got back. You were going to be a daddy. Im sorry. I...Love...You." Her grip slackened and she closed her eyes. Riza Hawkeye was dead. "I love you too Riza. I'll see you soon." he whispered. He kissed her forehead. A lone tear slipped from his eyes and landed on her face. "Aww, look at that. Is that rain too Mustang?" Lust threw the words he'd used after Hughes' funeral, then she laughed a cold, cruel laugh.
Mustang's hands clenched into fists of rage. His reaction made Lust laugh again and Gluttony joined in. But in their laughter, they failed to notice one major detail...it had stopped raining. They also didnt notice when he pulled a dry pair of gloves from a leather pouch at Hawkeye's side. He stood and when he lifted his head, his black eyes burned with a deep anger. It seemed as if the world was in tune with his fury. Lightning split the sky. Thunder crashed, breaking the stillness. But just as no tears fell from Mustang's eyes now, no rain fell from the sky.
Lust had now noticed that the rain had stopped. She suddenly got a very bad feeling. Something was telling her to run. It was then that she noticed Mustang. With a flick of his fingers, a bright reddish orange flame flickered in his hand and a second later, it engulfed Gluttony's body. Screaming in pain, Gluttony fell to the ground and rolled but he couldnt extinguish the flame. Lust looked up and saw Mustangs face and she became afraid. She tried to run but Mustang flicked his fingers again and the red hot flame engulfed her legs. "You murdering bitch! I'll kill you for what you did to her!" Mustang screamed his fury as he began t pummel Lust. He hit her again and again. She pushed Mustang back and tried to flee again, but another burst of flame engulfed her arms. Screaming in utter agony and completely helpless, she watched as Mustang screamed "Burn in Hell!" Then she was completely engulfed in flames. She was dead in minutes.
His anger cooled and his thirst for revenge quenched, Mustangs strength was gone. He fell to the ground and he knew he wouldnt get back up this time. He managed to crawl back to wher Hawkeye lay. He took her hand and smiled. He kissed her cheek as the life faded from his body. "I'm coming sweetheart. I'm...coming." He slumped to the side and was gone. Somewhere in another world, Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye embraced and shared a passionate kiss. "We're together now." she said. Mustang nodded and said "Forever." as he lowered his head to kiss her again.
