Alphonse ran right up to the steps of Central Command, not hesitating a bit as he ran straight for the infirmary, keeping the girl close to him. She whimpered softly at the rough motion, her eyes slowly fluttering close as she gets close to fainting from the pain. Al moved quickly, passing the Colonel as he ran.
``Alphonse? What're you doing? You know its dangerous to run the halls'', he gave him a coy smile but frowns slightly when he doesn't stop his pace.
``No time! Infirmary! I'll explain in a minute!'' he cried out as he runs straight into the infirmary. ``Can I get a doctor please? I've got an injured girl!'' He carefully sets the girl onto an empty bed as a nurse comes over and starts to inspect her and change her into a gown. Al quickly spins around, a huge blush on his cheeks only to come face to face with the Colonel who had followed him into the infirmary, looking slightly annoyed.
``Care to explain yourself Alphonse for ignoring me? You two were to supposed to come straight to me for the debriefing, not running off like that?'' Roy scolded Alphonse until he took a look around the room, avoiding looking at the girl in the bed. ``Where's the shrimp? I don't see him.''
``He was giving me time to run off with her from the people who was chasing her. I think he'll be here in a bit'', Alphonse sighed out as he takes a seat, giving him a better view of the girl. Thanks to the doctors, she was somewhat presentable with her hair out of the way and a change of clothes. With proper bandages in place and some pain medicine being dripped into her, she slept soundly in the bed, Roy getting a good look at her face to see some similar and familiar features on her face.
``She looks very familiar......'', Roy murmured as he looked at her in a puzzled manor.
``That's cause she a relative of yours'', Ed stated as he waltzed in tiredly, flopping beside Alphonse, rubbing his neck.
``Relative? Impossible. The only possible relative she could be was kidnapped at 6 and presumed dead on her 10th birthday and that was over 13 years ago'', Roy said quietly, looking very confused.
``Well, I talked to one of the guys that were chasing her and he claims she's a Mustang'', Ed said bluntly, pushing a finger into the side of his head.
``You mean to tell me that my sister could be this woman?'' Roy questioned in a slightly annoyed and unconvinced tone, it reaching the sleeping woman who began to whimper and toss in her sleep, a nightmare beginning in her mind. Ed stands up, feeling sympathetic to her as he gently takes her hand and rubs soothing circles over her hand.
``How about we find out, Mr. Grouchy'', Ed murmured as he lightly taps her shoulder, trying to rouse her from her sleep. ``Hey, wake up.''
She whimpered softly in her sleep and gasps awake, yanking her hand from Ed's hold and tries to get away, her fight or flight instincts kicking in from her nightmare. Ed manages to recapture her hand into his and holds her steady and back into the bed.
``Calm down, we're not here to hurt you'', he murmurs calmly to her, looking at her eyes. His golden eyes captures her, unwavering and serious as her heart slowly calms down, taking steady breaths. She nods in understanding and looks around.
``Where.........where am I?'' she looks around nervously, noticing Roy was studying her and Ed interact, still skeptical of the situation.
``Central Command. In the infirmary. What's your name?'' Ed murmurs softly as he keeps her hand in between his, rubbing soothing circles on it. She watches him carefully, having been burned for her trusting nature before and was wary of the strangers.
Softly, she murmurs quietly while keeping a wary eye on them, ``J-Jaylene.......''
With wide eyes, Roy stumbles back in shock at the girls name, his mouth gaping slightly. Ed takes no notice to Roy's shock as he smiles charmingly to Jaylene, whispering softly, ``I see. That's a pretty name.''
Ed clears his throat and straightens up and gives you a wider smile, trying to calm your fears as he state proudly, ``Well Jaylene, my name is Edward Elric. I'm a state alchemist, so you can trust me.''
Jaylene just giggles a little bit, seeming to be calmer as she whispers a soft ok. All the while, Roy stood there in disbelief and major relief at the discovery of Jaylene's sudden appearance.
``Hey, Jaylene. I've got some exciting news for you'', Ed grins with a cocky smile, too happy to embarrass the Colonel. ``Do you know if the brother you mentioned early was named Roy?''
Roy was shocked by the question and moved to leave only to have Alphonse catch his collar, knowing he was nervous to hear her response.
Jaylene tilts her head at the question but her eyes light up a little at the thought he knew his and murmurs, ``Yes it was, how do you know that?''
``That's because I know him personally'', Ed smirks proudly and looks back at Roy, giving him an expectant glance. Tensing under the gaze, Roy slowly makes his way over to the bed, avoiding looking her in the eyes from mild guild and over humiliation.
``Roy?'' Jaylene looks up at him with hopeful eyes, searching him for the truth.
Smiling sheepishly, Roy finally locks eyes with Jaylene and gives her a small smile, leaning down and carefully wraps her in a deep embrace. ``Hey Jay-Jay~''
