Characters: Ed, probably Riku
When: Day 14 (late afternoon)
Where: Zenith Market
Warnings: A short tempered alchemist, need I say more?
Summary: Ed will find the way out or die trying....should be fun
Log:


He had fit all the essential items into a backpack and stalked out of his apartment with no intention of returning. It was the last straw. If he stayed he'd go crazy. He couldn't take it anymore. He'd seen two people that were supposed to be dead , and yesterday was a fox. He still wasn't sure he believed it wasn't a nightmare; but then he checked the entry he had made earlier and it was still there. So was everyone elses for that matter.

He didn't even want to get into thinking about Riku. The guy dissappeared and refused to come out of hiding when he'd asked - on the other hand when he wanted nothing to do with him he'd come hunt him down?! It was offical:the guy loved to piss him off.Only logic behind it.Edward got so angry he didn't even reply to to his last comment.

On top of it all, he had a bruise forming under his eye. He'd learned when he opened the doors to a women's restroom that ladies with big purses were rather dangerous. And no the way out wasn't in there.

Another shop he probably couldn't ever go back to except in disguise after the stunt he pulled breaking into the employee's lounge. And no, the way out wasn't there either.

Most people , mostly women, when they asked him what the hell he was doing when he began opening random doors in their shops took pity on him at his reply'just trying to go home.' They thought he was a lost little kid because of his height. ( Even though he WAS NOT SHORT damn it.) He didn't know whether to be glad this worked to his advantage or annoyed.

Actually he was surprised no one had tried to arrest him. But he wasn't worried. He doubted a jail could put up with him very long.

Riku had to shake his head after he downed another potion. Most of the damage from the past few days and then some were gone, which was good. As Riku ran along roof tops avoiding the crowds he wondered what made Edward snap like that. Maybe it was a mistake telling him about the doors? He wondered until he found his way past several high end districts and nearing the Black Mask area.
Nevermind, he knew it was a bad idea.
Some probably would ask why he would opt to run on the rooftops if he was looking for someone. But again, how many people wore red coats, had blond hair and could make 'that' much of a racket on their own?
Not many, he hoped.
All he had to do was sit and ease drop on a few conversations to hear about a kid fitting Edwards's description opening doors.
'Edward you are mayhem incarnate,' he thought ruefully. 'You're going to get your wish Sora, I guess I'm coming back tonight.' He thought as he jumped down from his perch. Hitting the ground with the practiced ease of someone way to used to being a type of hunter. He began stalking his way through the Mask towards the Zenith.

Edward found a wall to lean against and promptly sank to he ground, spent. He was exausted. And he'd actually covered a lot of ground. He shuddered remembering the elderly shop owner that offered him to sit down and calm down a bit. Then she'd promptly offered him a glass of warm milk. Ed HATED milk. Except in stew. In stew it worked. Needless to say he didn't wait to be thrown out of that place.

He sat there catching his breath. He didn't want to admit it , but he was starting to get a little cold. And tired.

Maybe I should just return to the Bronze for tonight - no I'll go a few more blocks. Just want to rest a bit.

Hw looked up at the sky. It was darkening. Not too long before stars would begin to twinkle in it. He wondered vaguely what his brother was doing. What 'both' Alphonses were doing. In a way , he was homesick for both worlds even though Resembool was where he really wanted to go.

Blond Ahoy! Riku looked spotted Edward sitting against the wall, and looked pretty damn pitiful one might add. He walked by a few shops before stopping at a distance getting a visual read out as it were of Edward's state. Edward clearly wanted to go home, and it made Riku smile faintly to think that Edward had so many people he wanted to see again. Must be nice, to be so loved that being torn away hurt so terribly. He finally approached but didn't say anything for a while. Then finally he said in his most casual bored out of his mind tone "Hey Edward, said I'd find you." too bad he couldn't hide his relief in his eyes.

Edward didn't acknowledge Riku right away. But slowly raised his head to look up at the silver haired boy. Faintly, he smirked.

"Well look who crawled out of his hole." he said in a slightly hoarse voice. Then without moving the rest of his body or giving any sign or warning , his left leg kicked out fully intending to knowck Riku off of his feet.

"That's for making me worry." he said glaring.

Riku tried to catch himself in time, but still landed on bended knee by the blond. "I don't crawl," he countered as he knelt there. But he said nothing about the worry, if anything he simply lowered his head in acknowledgement that he had caused that worry. "I just don't want you going around possibly getting yourself killed that's the only reason I came out anyways."

"You found me.I'm alive apparently, unless I died and this is hell. Now you can leave." Ed said indifferently. "Sorry I don't have a gold star for you."

Actually he was relieved to see Riku whole and looking healthier. That didn't mean he had to say so. He was still mad at him. And he was in no great mood. He was frustrated and no closer to finding his way out of Faciatta than when he began.

"Edward, you can't just find the door." Riku looked frustrated at how to explain this to the guy. "Edward, these doors, their not meant to be breached... You're not supposed to open them and use them. These doors normally don't open unless the world is being murdered. The only other doors, they can do more harm then good. Please try to be patient, all you're going to do is set yourself up for being hurt." Something that Riku understood, his impatience at leaving his own world got him serving darkness after all.

Edward listened carefully to Riku weighing each word and intently watching his face in the case that he could be being lied to. He considered the part about doors not being opened unless they were dying. The gate never opened unless someone was born or just died. Either way, it wasn't wise to mess with the gate. He and his brother had learned about that the harshest way imaginable.

He closed his eyes a moment fighting internally what he knew was his worst enemy - his own stubborness.

Remember Al, Ed. he told himself. Remember what happened last time you meddled with something that would have been best left alone...

Breaking the rules could could with dire consequences. He'd seen it first hand.

Sighing, he slowly dragged himself to his feet. His body felt very heavy. Probably all the walking. And plus he was beat. At least that's what he assumed.

"If it should not be done that way, then it can't be done that way and that's that then."he muttered almost inaudibly. "I'll have to come up with something else."

He adjusted his backpack. Time to start walking back to his 'shelter.'

Riku smiled faintly and nodded "I'll... go back with you we'll start trying to figure out something. Without sacrificing lives or the world, it can be done, just please be patient a little longer." Riku replied getting up from his position.
But as he turned to follow Edward a glance of yellow caught him like a deer in headlights. The flicker of an antenne causing him to freeze before it slipped away into the darkness. It couldn't be... but he could stay, he had to go back with Edward before he made the teen angry at him. 'I guess it's time to face my fate, and see Sora and Kairi.'

Ed was sure he could not have heard right. "You're coming back with me? I thought the point of you taking off was so that you didn't have to run into Sora and Kairi. And if you come with me, you might. What made you change your mind?"

Ed noticed that the other teen didn't answer him right away. In fact he was looking the other way, frozen.

"Um..Riku?"

"Nothing... Nothing yet," Riku turned his attention back to Edward, troubled as it was. "You were saying?" He asked as he tried to remember what Edward had been talking about.

Annoyed, Ed began to repeat the question. " I said: what made you change your- AHHHH!"

Before he could complete that sentence, something materialized below him; he didn't have much time to react before the little shadow creature raked its claws across his left leg. It sliced open the fabric of his pants, effortlessly, displaying steel. Lucky for Ed, it was not the real leg so he cried out in suprise rather than pain.

Riku didn't think as instinct took over, pushing Edward away and hopefully in a safer spot. Soul Eater in hand he went about running the Shadow through with his weapon. Not even really thinking about anything other then a growled out "Heartless..."

Riku had moved and shoved Ed backwards before he had much time to think. The other boy dispatched the shadow with ease.

What unnerved Ed was that there was no evidence that the creature had even been there. No blood, no nothing.

Then another occurrence hit Ed. He stared at the spot the creature had been and whispered. " How did that leave the gate?"

"It didn't, the Heartless are made when someone loses their heart. They don't need a gate to come out, it just means a person has lost their heart. Though yes, normally they live on the other side of the doors to Kingdom Hearts." Riku replied sending back his sword and checking hoping that they didn't distract other people by the Shadow's presence. "You ok?"

" I - I'm fine." Ed stammered. "I just could swear I've seen something like it before."

They can get out? Or is this some other creature? Damn! I hate not knowing what's going on.

" Riku...what do you mean when you say someone loses their heart? Do you mean they get killed?" he asked. " Do you mean the HEART literally?"

Riku looked a little lost at the question before looking down, trying to figure it out himself. "Your heart..." He put his hand over his and sighed, "I... I'm not sure... If it's just a spiritual or magical representation of the body then a person shouldn't... But then they don't do they?" He seemed lost in thought. "I guess its' a type of magically representation of a human organ... Because once you lose that you lose your form."

Ed had the sudden urge to sit back down again. Hard. Even though after all he'd seen he had to admit there were definetly things that couldn't be explained just by human understanding.....there was a time he believed everything had a logical and clear explanation. Cause and effect. Equivalent exchange. A part of him still clung to that, bcause those beliefs were what he was comfortable with for most of his life.

I used to think people that believed in the spiritual side had it easy because they didn't have to rely on explanations....but maybe it was the other way around after all. he thought grimly.

He put his hand over his heart. He felt its beat under his hand. Was this just an organ or something more?
