Feeling some FMA nostalgia. Bradley and his wife was one of those couples I only got seriously into when FMA ended and all was (un)said and done. It’s just… the stuff Bradley said in the end and Mrs. Bradley’s actions afterwards… Omg. I could write essays. T_T

You awoke to shuffling on the other side of the room. You smiled and rolled over to see Spock getting ready for the day, looking over at you as he got dressed.
“Morning,” you said sleepily. He smiled at you as he fixed his shirt.
“What time is it?”
“Late,” Spock said, sitting down at the edge of the bed. “You overslept. Again.”
“I’ll be fine,” you said, sitting up in bed. You crawled across the covers and wrapped your arms around Spock, giving him a kiss on the cheek. “I wouldn’t have overslept if you hadn’t kept me up all night.”
“I didn’t hear any complaining,” Spock said, a small smirk growing on his face.
“No,” you said, standing up. “You’re right. But you’re wrong about one thing, I’m not going to be late.”
“Because even if I am, my husband won’t rat me out,” you said, pulling your blue dress over your shoulders. “No matter how much he cares about following rules.”
“I wouldn’t be so sure,” he said, walking towards you, wrapping his arm around your waist. You leaned up and kissed his lips passionately, a little reminder of the night before.
“You better get going,” you said, looking over at the clock. “I promise I won’t be late.”
“Okay, I’ll see you soon,” Spock said, smiling at you.
“Y/N, I was beginning to think you abandoned me,” Jim said, spinning around in his chair. You smiled and stood next to him.
“I could never abandon you. What’s going on?”
“Well, we just sent Spock down to meet with the ambassador of the planet.” You took a breath and looked down at the tablet in your hand, trying to watch Spock’s movement.
“Ya know, you look especially beautiful today,” Jim said. You looked up from the tablet and he winked at you.
“It takes away from the fact that you were late this morning.” You bumped your hip against his chair and bit back a smile. “Don’t worry, I don’t care.”
“Yeah, you can make it up by going on a date with me,” he said.
“I can what?!” you asked as the tablet beeped. You looked down and saw a message from a member of the team that went down to the planet.
“I mean, I do have a pretty good reput-”
“Jim, shut up!” You tapped the pad until the video message appeared on the big screen. You adjusted some controls until the picture came through.
“Chekov,” Jim said, turning his attention away from you and towards the screen.
“Allo, captin,” he said with a smile.
“What’s going on?”
“We were meeting with the ambassador when there was incoming fire from a hidden Romulan ship. We have neutralized the situation and taken care of the foreign ambassadors.”
“Is everyone alright?” you asked, stepping into the frame.
“Mr. Spock took a hit to his side, but everyone else is okay.”
“Send him up,” you said immediately. Jim looked at you curiously but nodded.
“I agree with Ms. Y/L/N, I’ll send word to Scotty and he’ll beam you up. Thanks, Chekov.”
“You’re welcome, captin.” Jim flipped a few more controls and turned off the screen.
“Okay, so I’ll go down to Scotty,” you said, halfway towards the door. Jim laughed and followed you, grabbing onto your arm.
“No, I’ll go see Scotty. You head down to Med Bay and get Bones prepped.” You nodded and looked down. Jim’s hands moved up to your shoulders and made you look at him.
“Hey, he’s gonna be okay.”
“I know, I know,” you said, clearing your thoughts. “Thanks, Jim.”
“Of course. And to repay me-”
“I’m not going on a date with you!” you said, stepping into the elevator.
“Why not?!” Jim asked as the doors closed. You smiled to yourself and waited patiently until the doors opened on the Med Bay floor. As soon as they slid open, you sped down the hallway. You burst into the white facility and walked towards Nurse Chapel.
“Y/N. What are you doing down here?” she asked.
“He’s in his office. Are you okay?”
“Not really. Thanks,” you said, walking away from the nurse who was giving you a suspicious look. You knocked on Leonard’s office door frantically until he opened up.
“Dear god, woman, what’s wrong?”
“Yes, Spock is usually wrong but-”
“No, he was shot. Scotty is working on beaming him up.” Leonard’s eyes widened and he walked out of his office.
“Chapel, I need you to get surgery room one ready,” he said, slipping on a medical shirt and gloves. “Y/N,” he said, turning towards you.
“You need to get out of here.”
“Only family is allowed during surgery.”
“Surgery? You haven’t even seen him yet.”
“Y/N, he got shot at, I’m gonna have to do surgery. And you can’t be here,” he repeated.
“Jim will be here!” you argued.
“Jim’s the captain.”
“I’m his wife!” Leonard stopped what he was doing and looked up at you. You made eye contact with him, realizing what you said.
“I’m his wife,” you repeated.
“Since when?” he asked, blinking repeatedly. You grabbed his arm and pulled him to a secluded corner.
“Since the academy.”
“And you’ve never told anyone?”
“No, because it’s not anyone else’s business. Please, keep it between the two of us.” Leonard sighed and folded his arms.
“Okay, fine. You can be there during surgery, but you’ll have to come up with an excuse for Jim.”
“Don’t worry, he’s been trying to ask me out all day,” you said as the doors to Med Bay opened. “He won’t mind if I’m there.”
You followed Leonard towards the commotion and saw Spock laying on a stretcher. There was blood seeping from his side and he looked up as you as they wheeled him in.
The smallest crack of a smile spread on his face as they rolled him along. You instinctively walked towards him but stopped when Jim stood in front of you.
“Hey,” you said, your eyes still following Spock.
“Hey, Y/N, are you okay?”
“Yeah, I just wanna make sure that Spock’s okay.”
“Don’t worry, me too,” he said, touching your arms again.
“I’m gonna watch the surgery,” you said, walking away from Jim and into the viewing room. Jim walked up next to you and crossed his arms. You nervously bit your nail as they started to prep him.
“Y/N,” Jim said, bumping into you. “He’s gonna be okay.”
“I hope so.”
“Hey, how’s he doing?” you asked as soon as Leonard walked out of the surgery room.
“He’s stable. We got the bullet out and he’s in recovery now.”
“Can I see him?” you asked. Jim looked at you strangely and smacked your arm.
“Give him some time, Y/N. He doesn’t need to get back to work right away.” You rolled your eyes and turned back to Leonard.
“Please.” He sighed and nodded.
“Just for a little while.”
“Thank you,” you said, rushing towards the door. It slid open and Spock turned to face you.
“Hi,” he said.
“Hey, how are you feeling,” you asked, running a hand through his hair.
“I’m fine,” he said, moving your hand. You sighed, knowing that he was trying to keep up appearances.
“I was worried about you,” you said just above a whisper. He took your hand in his and smiled at you.
“I’m fine,” he said again.
“I told Leonard about us,” you blurted out.
“You did?” he asked, his face changing expression as little as it could.
“Yeah.” Spock opened his mouth to say something but closed it a moment later. His hand grabbed onto your chin and tilted your head up ever so slightly.
“Good,” he said before bringing his lips to yours. You kissed him softly, something you had been wanting to do since you heard the news. When a thud sounded from the hall you pulled away.
The door opened and Jim walked in with his mouth opened. You turned to look at him and tried to say something but Spock spoke first.
“Captain, I understand why you might be angry. It was unfair of Y/N and myself to hide our marriage from you.”
“Marriage?!” Jim asked, looking between the two of you.
“Yes, Y/N is my wife,” Spock said.
“So that’s why you wouldn’t go on a date with me,” Jim said.
“You asked Y/N out on a date?”
“Yes,” you said. “And yes, that’s why I wouldn’t go on a date with you.”
“That’s the only reason?” Spock asked with a smirk. You looked back on him and smiled.
“Of course it’s not,” you whispered.
“I can’t believe you didn’t tell me!” Jim said, pulling your attention.
“No offense, Captain, but it’s not mandatory to tell you.”
“What Spock means,” you said, walking towards Jim and putting an arm around him. “Is that our personal lives are our own, and we’re sorry we didn’t tell you. But you know now.”
“Okay, okay, you’re lucky you got shot. I can’t be mad at someone who almost died.”
“I did not almost die.” You shushed Spock and walked back over to him.
“Thank you, Jim.”
“Yeah, just watch Spock and we can talk about this later. You can make it up to me by going on a date with me.” You and Spock both shot him a look and he smiled.
“Just kidding.” The doors closed behind him and you turned back to Spock.
“Jim and I are friends but I’m getting a feeling that I should punch him.” You raised your eyebrows and laughed at Spock.
“Don’t worry, Jim’s been asking me out for years, my heart only belongs to you,” you said, leaning up to kiss him. Spock pulled away with a smile before his face fell.
So. Today in class we assigned Macbeth roles to students to read. When I asked the class who wants to be Lady Macbeth, a young man raised his hand. I kind of stared at him like “Lady Macbeth,” and he nodded like “I know what I’m about ma’am.” So then the student who ended up as Macbeth raised his hand and said “HE’S THE ONE, HE’S MY WIFE!” So I said “yeah sure why not,” and the entire class period they were blowing kisses to each other and winking at each other, and every now and then Macbeth would say “I’m the luckiest man on Earth” and Lady Macbeth would put a hand to his chest, and be like “BABE!”.
I just stared at them, knowing that they CLEARLY have never read ‘Macbeth’ before, so… all this lovey dovey… I don’t know if I have the heart to tell them the truth.
