Royai bodyswitch AU! :D
Every eye turned toward him the moment Roy opened the office door, and a flood of heat rushed through his cheeks. He knew that the notion that he was Riza and Riza was he was still fresh in the men’s minds, and the fact that their restraint would sometimes fail them did little to maintain the flow they had so desperately tried to maintain while he worked to figure out how to make things right. But something else settled in his mind and exacerbated that feeling of self-consciousness, and he felt as though they were looking right through him to the heart of his dilemma.
He straightened himself and offered them a salute, which they returned, before briskly walking over to the desk Riza had made her temporary post. When she lifted her head, he paused. It was unnatural seeing himself through eyes that were not his, and standing closer to his body only amplified that feeling. Rather than the familiar set of blonde hair and brown eyes he had always adored, he was met by a face he had seen when he looked in the mirror every day. It was difficult fighting past the feeling of discomfort they both felt when addressing the other, but slowly and surely they had grown to look past the face they saw in order to speak to the person behind it. It was a relief to him especially that day.
She immediately picked up on his discomfort, and a look of concern crossed her face. “What’s wrong,” she asked quietly as her dark eyes scanned his face.
Even though he knew it was ridiculous to feel embarrassed, Roy felt another dash of warmth flood his cheeks. Before he could stumble through an answer, though, her eyes widened. “Oh…” She opened the drawer nearest the floor and rummaged through it for a few moments before she pulled out and balled a small package into the palm of her hand. she reached across the desk and placed it in his hand, but before she dropped it entirely, she eyed him questioningly. Do you need me to…?
He took the moment to glance over his shoulder and found that the men had tasked themselves with their paperwork, or were at the very least acting like they were preoccupied with it. When his eyes returned to her, he shook his head. Though it was something he had always accepted in the body he now masqueraded in, it was something he never thought he would have to learn to manage for himself. The corner of his lip twitched as he curled his fingers gratefully around the package she had handed him, and he shook his head again.
He appreciated the gesture, and she knew it, but they both knew that it was one of the many things they would both have to learn to accept and overcome, especially considering that the time they would return to their bodies was still uncertain.
