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.

"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.

"Both people I saw were dead." Ed stated grimly. "My mother has been dead for years. As for the other one.....I killed her myself."

"The dead can not return, but we've already accepted that this whole town is rather odd. Perhaps it's a fluke of the town that allowed you to see them? And the church's penchant for inducing fear made you pass out?" Riku offered gently realizing that this having to do with parents was something to be treaded lightly.

"Maybe..."Ed admitted. " There seemed to be something twisted about that whole building. Yet, I couldn't not go."

He was privately relieved that Riku ahd not asked him to go into to detail about why he had killed someone. He didn't really want to relive it, even though Sloth was a monster that wouldn't have even needed killing to begin with if he hadn't created it.

"But you slept in one ofthe temples. It didn't seem to bother you." Ed countered after some thought.

"We'd have to check out the other churches, but honestly I couldn't tell the difference. Though I wasn't in any mood to banter until after I met you. But then again, I have been in a rather morbid mood since before I arrived, maybe the church just intensified it."

"Yeah, you are rather the depresssing one."Ed teased. "I bet you were immune!"

Ed was feeling a little better joking with the other boy and not forcing it.

"Oh, I found the Black Mask," Riku informed Edward. "I even made sure they had little platforms behind the counters so you could see over the counters."

Ed's fist connected squarely with Riku's left shoulder. "ARg!I am not a guineas book of world records midget!!!! That's so typical of you! You help me then you piss me off!"

Glaring he added,"You had no buisness picking me up in the first place. You WANT to reopen all your wounds or something?"

Riku began laughing even as he rubbed his shoulder. "I want you safe," was his sole answer as he backed up mockingly from the Sniffer in the red coat.
