Ficlet: the Experimental Method

Title: The Experimental Method
Characters: Al, Ed, Winry
Rating: G
Word count: 150
Prompt: randomcheeses, Al, Ed, Winry. pancake making.



"Wow," said Al, "is it supposed to taste like that?" He downed the rest of the teaspoon and seemed to slosh it around his mouth. His nose crinkled up.

Ed snorted. Winry refused to meet his eye, he'd only set her off. "It's raw. It's not good raw, because of the flour ..."

Al shook his head firmly. "But there's flour in raw cake batter and cookie dough. And that's really good."

Oh yeah, the time, two weeks after the brothers got back, that Al was left unsupervised with a batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. He was sitting at the kitchen table dropping teaspoonsful onto a baking tray, Winry turned away for less than a minute, and next time she looked half the dough was gone and Al was clutching at his stomach with a perturbed expression. This, Winry imagined, must be what it was like having kids.

Poor Al, after so long he's forgotten how much cookie dough is too much cookie dough.

And not all tasty flour products are still as good after you eat a pound of them. XD

Well, making yourself sick on them might cure that problem.

...Maybe.
