Characters:Ed and if anyone wants to bump into him, feel free.
When: Evening (all hollows eve)
Where: La Peur
Warnings: Might get a bit creepy, but what you expect? Oh and angst. Yup, expect angst. This will not be nice for Ed.
Summary: Edward sees his mother...but wait isn't she dead? No wait, that's not her...


Edward could swear that he he heard screams....no, it was more like wails of terror. He ran onward, his braid bouncing , determined to find the source of the screams. He stopped before a white building. It looked like a church. There. The sound was coming from there.

"Hello?!" he called out. "Hey, do you need help?"

He stepped through and what felt like a wave of nausea instantly slammed into his chest. It was fear. The screams were louder now, and very clear. Curtains obscured his view , so he still couldn't find the source.

Pushing past them, he called out again. "Where are you?! Answer me!"

The curains snagged at him,clinging to him like green shadows, hindering his progress. Apprehension and adrenaline were getting to him more and more with every scream he heard. He tranmutated his auto-mail into a blade and sliced through the curtains.

The center of the room was off damp earth. He might have taken mind of the pit there if not for the person standing before it. Her brown hair was tied in its usual fashion and fell over her shoulder. Her smile reached those benevolent brown eyes.Those eyes had watched him grow up. Edward thought his heart would stop.

"M-mom?"Ed whispered. " Is it really you?"

She smiled at him. "Edward."

Her voice was low and sweet. No one else had that voice.

"Mom...."tears welled up in the boy's eyes. "How?"

Shaking, he took unsteady steps towards her.

"Where is your brother Edward?" his mother whispered.

Ed's eyes widened momentarily. Then he looked away, ashamed. "I'm sorry. I don't know. We got seperated....we...I'm so.."

Suddenly she was right in front of him, her finger on his lips. Her eyes looking right into his. He felt like the emotion was going to kill him.

"My poor child. You must have had a rough time...I know I would feel terrible -"

Ed's eyes grew wider if that were possible. Tricia Elric's form seemed to be changing. Melting way. Into someone like her, but different.

" - if it were my fault that someone I loved were gone. But you know all about that, don't you Edward Elric....you murderer." the new face and voice sneered.

"Sloth....no!" Ed screamed. " Bring her back! Bring my mom back! Why are you here?"

The apparation of the humuculi smiled. "Or what? Will you kill me..her...again?"

"SHUT UP!" the blonde cried, falling to his knees and clutching his head. "Shut up , shut up, SHUT UP!"

Suddenly Edward's body seized , and he felt darkness cloud his vision.

((OOC: Hey Ed-Mun, There's a few things going on with Riku in another thread that happens the day before. So I don't know if Ed and Riku by now could have a job or what so it's going to be a little on the vague side. But I felt someone should show some love to the Red coated Lab rat.))

Riku glanced down from the top of the Bronze only to see Edward running off (How could he miss that coat?) to one of the churches near by. Now why would he do that? Not trusting this place enough, Riku found a few landings he could use and instead of just going down inside the building like any normal minded human being. He opted to jump down, something not exactly wise in terms of treating his injuries. But then that was Riku for you. But he didn't just go into an automatic run when he hit the ground, not after what he had just did. He slowly walked down towards there trusting that Edward could handle what was going on.

After a while he reached the church only to hear Edward's voice and he didn't sound happy. As he put his first foot on the step of the church a wave of fear gripped him that made him freeze in place. How could that even be possible? It was just a church! But he shook his head and walked into the building blinking at the shift in amounts of light before he finally saw Edward kneeling down on the ground at the center of the church.

He looked around trying to find a clue as to what happened, when a slight breeze touched his arm making him jump. This was ridiculous though! It was just a church! Why would this place inspire such a feeling in him, when there was no one aorund to begin with. Something stole his voice, keeping him from calling out for Edward to see what the matter was. Something that made him feel just completely uncomfortable, like Heartless staring out at him from the darkness of the building. Even though he couldn't see the tell tale signs.
"Edward?" He called out in uncertainty as he got closer to the young man. "Hey are you ok?" He asked his voice on edge, when he could finally kneel down next to the young man.

((OOC: Ok telling you now, if Edward snaps right out of it and looks at Riku. Riku looks very worried and he's stuffed his fear very well. So all you'll see is pure concern, but if he comes out of it slowly when he sees Riku, the guy's got this 'can you *not* do anything right?'. And if you want Riku to carry Edward out just keep him out of it in the next post.))

(OOC:He's already passed out!)

Edward could hear a voice that was neither Sloth's nor his mother's , but he was powerless to respond to it. After his body had slid face down all he was aware of was this paralyzing fear and he kept asking himself over and over again if he was having a nightmare, because this just couldn't be real. And if if was, could he PLEASE just wake up or pass out all together.

The voice, whoever it was, was getting further away; maybe his wish was being granted.

"Edward?" Fear crept into Riku's voice, it was unlike Edward, well true Riku didn't know that much about Edward. But the guy clearly had what it took to endure more then an empty room before feeling the need to pass out. The fear he pushed to the back of his head was turning into to a gnawing panic as growing concern was mixed in. As much as he had ribbed Edward about his height, Riku knew he had a problem on his hands. His body was wrecked no lie, but he couldn't leave Edward in a place that obviously wasn't good for him. So deciding to put off any healing he may have accomplished, Riku slipped himself under Edwards real arm, and dragged the young man up.

To say it hurt was nothing, he couldn't draw a deep breath, his body was hunched over in a position that wasn't helping him any. Riku slowly worked laboring away at getting Edward out of the church as soon as possible. Even as he felt a pair of eyes on his back staring at him. In the back of his mind he could hear a voice telling him to turn around and face the threat. But Edward needed him, so he repeated that to himself over and over again while working his way to the front of the church. But just before he passed the threshhold he turned around once. In the now deeper darkness of the church a pair of gold eyes looked out at him for a moment before they were gone. Gold, and a flash of silver.

(OOC: If this is a problem I can edit... you're never online so I never know... *Wails)

Ed didn't know it, because his mind was in a place where he was less than aware at the moment, but the awful effects that the church had had on him were starting to realease their hold on him. His heart rate had returned to normal and though he did feel kind of sick the fear and dread were leaving him allowing his mind to return to his normal state of reason.

He felt support around his body and it vaguely felt as though someone was leading him along.

Riku continued along fighting down the pain in his body, catching himself several times from nearly blacking out. Stupid as it was, Edward was so small, hardly heavy, so why couldn't he just suck it up and get them back to the hotel? Why did he keep feeling like he wanted to collapse from the stress? He wasn't weak! He wasn't going to collapse from something as simple as carrying Edward out of the church. And he didn't see Ansem in the shadows! He couldn't have! Sora defeated Ansem!
Riku shoved the image of gold eyes out of his head as he worked, until finally in the looming darkness of evening he saw the hotel in the distance. Just a little further and they'd be as close to safe as anyplace here...

The shorter boy's eyes fluttered then opened. His eyes came into focus.

"Riku?" he said drowsily.

He straightened up and tried to stand on his own, albeit shakily.

"What the hell - WHAT WERE YOU TRYING TO DO?! YOU WERE CARRYING ME? You're injured you idiot!" he bellowed.

He would have taken a swing at Riku had he only the strength. Slowly his mind grasped what had passed...or at least what he thought had passed.

"Did you you see her?" he demande sudden;y.

"See who? All I saw was a midget passed out on the ground." Riku countered having been giving enough time to hide his worry. So now the only expression on his face was that of 'Can you *not* stay out of trouble'? Though he struggled to hide the pain from having to carry the teen as far as he had.

"Th-that woman in the church? Did you see her?" Ed asked trying to keep his voice stable. " I am not a - I was really out then?"

He needed to know what had happened. It wasn't a nightmare. The only other options was that it was an illusion or he had a bout of temporary insanity.

"There was... unless the woman has gold eyes or wears silver, I didn't see anyone else but you. And yeah you were out of it, all the way until now. Why did you even go to that church?" Riku asked the concern that he had hidden slowly showing again in his eyes. Under his bangs, his eyes studied Edward, after all Edward clearly had his own skeletons in his past.

He paused for a moment. "I didn't see who you described, I saw....."

But it was impossbile. His mother and Sloth were dead. Did he really wanted one of the only people he talked to in this town to think he was mental?

"...you know what? Just forget it."he mumbled, looking away. He hesitated then asked. "Didn't you hear screams coming from that place?"

"Forget what? That I saw you passed out in a church? A church that for no reason what so ever inspired such fear in me? Not likely... I looked down from the room and saw you running off to somewhere else. I followed you to the church, when I got there you were... I guess shut down, like something just cut you off from the world, then you passed out. So I carried you back, but when I got to the doors, that's when I saw those eyes." Riku recounted for Edward, as he stood out in the night, feeling as though darkness was alive around him.

"I'm sure knowing my stubborness that I would have gotten up eventually." he joked, lightly. "I went to the chapel because I heard screaming. I thought maybe the heartless things you had mentioned were attacking someone. "

Ed paused for a moment then continued. "Was the person you saw there by any chance someone that was supposed to be dead?"

... "I don't know, he's right here if he's anywhere else." Riku replied with a sardonic twist of the lips tapping his fingers over his heart. "I thought he was gone... But if I saw him... then I shouldn't come back with you any farther then this."

"Don't be dumb."Ed retorted, even though he wasn't sure what Riku meant by gesturing at his chest. "I'm sure there's only room for one ego in that body."

Edwards sighed and crossed his arms over his chest."And I sure as hell ain't letting what I saw inside of me...except...I do wish I could see my..but that's stupid. When somebody's gone they're gone."

"No, it's not an ego I'm talking about, it's the heart. Though... if you saw the ghost of someone dead, they can't possess you. Maybe it's that church?" Riku offered calmly as he stood there letting a hand rest on his hip as he began thinking about what Edward may have seen.
