Prompt: Little Ed finding what he thinks is a magic stone. , by SparklyAquamarine
Note: Edward is 5, Alphonse is 4.
Edward ran down the old pebbled road which led from the local supermarket at Risembool all the way to the base of the hill the Elric house was located. He shifted the brown paper bag between his tiny arms as he ran, trying to find a balance for the heavy weight of the apples and bread in the bag. As he was so busy focusing on not dropping the bag, it really was no surprise that he tripped over a stray rock.
"Ow!" Edward pouted as he rubbed his head and gathered all of the items that fell out of the bag and placed them in carefully. When he stood up, he saw the rock he had tripped on. The rock had red spots covering its light grey surface, and there was a large gash down the centre of the rock. Edward bent down to get a closer look at the rock.
