Chapter 26 - Oh the pain of Automail!
It was almost two past four. The sun swayed in the distance and began to make its journey down fromt he sky, it was setting in golden haze. Shadows from the trees went to the right and across the sidewalks while the breeze creid int he autumn hair.
Amirru was at the stove busy cooking some spaghetti in a big boiling pot while Reicheru waited at the window like a kid waiting for his icecream cone to be served.
"Are you sure you dont want to play any games Oni-sama? Time will not fly by that way the time fly by." he said smiling.
"No" reicheru sighed, "what games can i play anyway? you DON'T expect me to play I spy do you?" She shood her head and plunked it against the window, distressed and sad with pain and anger.
Amirru came to her with a silver platter that had the spaghetti neatly served on it. He sat down next to her and held up a fork with a twirl full of noodles and sauce and meat on it. "OKay Reicheru just open your mouth and trust me i won't stab your gums with a four heheeh. say ahh!"
Reicheru obediently opened her mouth and said "Ahhhh..." SUDDENLY THE FORK WAS JAMMED IN HER MOUTH! "agghhh, what are you doing???" she muffled through inches of spaghetti.
"Im feeding you what do you think???" He asked and he kept piling more and more spaghetti into her mouth. "Does it taste good Reicheru-sama?"
She gargled a "mmhm".
As he conintueouly shoved more and more spaghetti into her mouth the door bell rang. RING.
"Oh blimey, who could that be?" he gently put the fork and plate down on the table while Reicheru still struggled with chewing spaghetti in her mouth. He gaasped when he looked through the window! "Oh it's the automail girl!" he chirped like a little bird.
Quickly he rushed the door open unlocking all the locks that kept them from going to the outside world. "Good morning my lady." he said taing Winry's arm. She wore a red banana over her head and a black tube top with a purple sweatshit wrapped around her body hips.
"Well hey, what's up." she said taking his hand and shaking like a hearty man. "Who is the girl in question of needing an automail? Ohhhh....I see..." she said looking at Reicheru's nubs. "Yeah you could definately use that."
"I didnt JUST bring the materials needed for making an automail arm that looks authentic. I heard about her eyes and I decided to get some glass ones for her. Just so she looks normal ya know?"
"Uh kay thanks! Nya!!!" Reicheru screamed! Winry sat down in front of her taking out a wrench and preparing ot work on reicheru.
"Alright Rei-chan prepare yourself cuz typically when putting on automail people have a lot of pain? Kay?"
"I can handle anything." Reicheru assured."Ow!" she said as the first insition of metal was made.
"Well now see it isn't to weasy now is it?" Winry worked the wrench around getting the metal onto Reicherus left arm.
"WIRY! HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE IN HERE!" Edward Elric burst in through the door, "man I nearly died of heat in the car."
"God damnit!" Winry screamed as she made a wrong move. Reicherus hair was all tangled up in her new metal arm like the spaghetti around that devil fork. "Look at what you done did shortie!" she threw the wrench at him.
"What happened??!?!" Reicheru cried!! *jiggle*
"Oh bugger..." Amirru turned pale.
"Nothing much you just got your hair stuck in the automail. Well ive prepared for this." she Marched off into her bag and search for something. Winry took out a pair of long scissors and made a SNIP SNIP noise with them.
"Your not cutting it off are you??" Reicheru said cautiously...
"Its just a little bit of hair it will EVENTUALLY grow back right? Once i get your hair off of your head then i can work on pulling the remains out of your arm kay?"
"Be strong Reicheru." Amirrru assured.
"Sorry Reicheru..." Edward replied in a low dark voice.
"Oh oh..." wrinry took Reicheru's hair, "your bangs are stuck in here a little too. Their gonna be a bit shorter after this. Sorry." She took the scissors and started cutting away.
"IT's fine." Reicheru pretending. It wasn't really all that fine reicheru hated the htought of losing her hair and if she had eyes she would be crying a little.
SHQUICK SHQUICK...the scissors made their terrible noise as the cut into many strands. SHQUICK....
"We're almost done." Winry said as she got around to cutting the back "Now I know I ain't no hair sylist but your going to look fine afterwards and short hair does you justtace anyway so don't worry your pretty little head."
"Yeah I'm sure it will." Edward smiled.
Amirru cleaned up the bits of Reicherus hair that was all over the floor. He flushed them down the toilet.
"now we need to put the skin on Reicheru's arm. it's not real skin its what they use to make Dildos." Winry added.
"Nothing" She smiled. "Since there will be joined and the skiin will cause them to stiffen there willl be NO skin around the joins. Sorry. But at least you cant see it." Winry wrapped and cut the skin around the arms. "The skin will be stressed around the join and look funn- sorry 'bout that too."
"Its all fine for the sake of being able to use my arms again..." reicheru flinched as she was still Tender from the automail being put on her nerves.
"Alright!" Winry said excitedly and beamed at her own work. "Wow this is the first time ive ever done this and it doesn't look half-bad. They skin's rather durable so if you still want to fight you can but i suggest using protection. Try to move your new arm Reicheru."
Reicheru opened and closed her hand, while looking at it because she was used to looking at things even though she couldn't see. "Well this is working really nicely."
"Oh and for the final touch..." Winry forced Reicherus empty eyes sockets open and insterted two glass eyes. They were both orange and even looked like cat eyes. "I had them custom made because I knew your eyes were special."
"I have special eyes."
"Yup!" she ruffled Reicherus hair.
Amirru sat down beside Reicheru and started cumbing her hair, "alright Oni-Sama just sit tight for a little while. I'm going to clean you up and you'll be ready for anything. Even though you have your arms back Im going to stay because you still need help seeing okay?"
"Sure thing, I'm glad to have you here."
"Kay Edward we're going. Dont you EVER burst in on me with a customer every again okay?" Winry took Edward by the poneytail and dragged him out the door. "By Amirru, bye Reicheru! thanks for contacting me." She waved.
"Bye! and thank you!" they both said.
Later that evening Amirru left suspiciously early.
"What are you doing?" Reicheru said groggily half asleep.
"Oh I need to go somewhere..." He paused. "I promise I'll be back before you wake."
"Amirru..." reicheru cooed. "I may be going soon. I need to find my daughter. If I'm not black when you come back I'm sorry."
"That's perfectly understandable." He nodded. "Good luck where you go to get her?"
"I need to contact my friend Yuki to see if she can feel Elaine yet." Reicheru said that and then Amirru left.
Reicheru used her new fingers to ring up the phone dialing Yuki's number.
RING RING RING RI- "Oh hey girlfriend!" Yuki's voice picked up. "I could sense that your automail is on."
"That's right its working great!" Reicheru smiled. "I was wondering..."
"-If I could feel Tenshikuzu? Yes I can! I know where she is Reicheru! We'll need to meet tomorrow. Your dad has her held captive on a remote island. I can fly you there."
"Good. Pick me up tonight if you can. I have a beating I want to set on that guy but if only Elaine's there we'll need to take her."
"Sure thing. I love you Rei-chan."
"I love you too Yuki-chan! Bye!" and Reicheru hung up. Reicheru continued to open and close her hand, feeling how odd it was to have macinery on her. She felt up the metal bits on her arm and sighed.
"Oh well it isn't so bad," she said.
That evening Yuki came flying in her window. Her beautiful white wings flapped int he breeze like two sails in the sky. She landed on the window sill and smiled. "I've come for you Reicheru-chan."
"So have I!" A voice came from Yuki's back. "It's me Minna-chan! Hehe!"
"Oh!" Reicheru said rushing to her window in her nighty gown, "how are you guys?"
"Good." they replied and reicheru hopped into Yuki's arms. "Where exactly is the Island?"
"Its hardly far from here!" Yuki exlaimed. They flew over the town and Minna and Yuki spied on people in their houses and laughed on a guy sitting at his toilet reading Ecchi Ecchi Paradise. The cool air was nice and the stars twinkled beautifully.
Soon a island came into view and gradually got closer to them! "We're nearly here." Yuki smiled.
"I cant wait to see my aka-chan!" Reicheru cried.
They glided onto the sands of the beach on the little island. Reicheru's ears perked up and she began to hiss. "Something isn't right here..." she said mysteriously like a detective whos found a clue.
