Life Cut Short
Edward Elric x Reader
Ed held you in his arms, His breathing quick, A trail of blood running down the side of his head down to his neck, Disappearing down his blood stained shirt.
He leaned his head against yours with gritted teeth as he held back his tears,
He was losing you, Fast.
Your half lidded (e/c) eyes look up slowly to meet his Gold ones. You smile as he put a hand on his head weakly as you finally had the air to breathe, It was becoming harder to breathe as the blood slowly started to fill your lungs, you cough a little before managing to speak. “Ed, D-don’t look so sad…It’s no big deal…” you say as he cough again, this time crimson wetness coating the palm of your hand.
He shook his head as a pained look filled his eyes. “No, (Y/n) this is a big deal…I-I can’t lose you…!!!” He cried as he held you closer to him; He wanted to help but…He couldn’t, the closest doctor was miles away, You wouldn’t make it.
Edward Elric and You had been through everything together, You were his friend, His traveling companion (Besides Al), And most of all…His Crush.
He had loved you for what seemed like forever, This was the first time he could hold you in his arms without blushing or nose bleeding...
This was one battle; One mission you weren’t going to finish. The last time you’d see Ed. The Last Time You Would See Life.
You were scared, Scared to die, But you couldn’t let Ed see it…You had to show him you were brave…Show him that there was no reason to cry, Even if there was.
He squeezes his eyes shut as tears well up at the corners of his eyes. “T-this wasn’t supposed to happen…! I-its all my fault…(Y/n) Please fo-forgive me…” He whispered as his face darkened. “I-I love you…I-I always have…We were supposed to get married and have kids, W-we’d live in a big house and d-die there….T-together…!” He cried as he hugged your blushing, Weakening body close to his warm one.
You swallowed down the lump in your throat as you hugged him back, as tears finally dripped down from your own eyes. “I-i…L---“ You cough roughly into your hand. “I love you….Too Ed…Don’t cry…” You pause for a moment as you know your time is running out.
“I’m Sorry…Looks like my Life was Cut a Little Short, Like your size…” you said as you tried to make humor in this situation, Chuckling softly at your own joke. Ed shook his head quickly, For the first time not actually getting angry for you calling him small, Your breathing slowed as you began to choke on your own blood, Ed held you tightly, Close to him as you breathed your last breaths, His eyes squeezed shut as tears flowed down his face. "I love you..."
