Pride was more then Ling could ever ask for, a perfect companion, who followed him around without question, silently waited by his side while he was in a meeting (which Ling would admit was a bit distracting.) and the way Pride looked at him, eyes full of complete and utter adoration. It gave Ling a feeling of fulfillment, yes that was it, Pride made Ling feel needed, not the kind of need his country had for him, but the kind of need where if he were to die… he would be missed.
Pride was also the perfect companion in other things, bed for instance. Ling found that nibbling on his neck got an almost orgasmic sound out of Pride, who was always willing and waiting for more. Though Ling found himself … once or twice, wishing for a little fight, a little more foreplay, a little more… Edward Elric, out of the sin. But after such a thought crossed his mind, he would mentally slap himself for even thinking it.
Pride was ten times better then Edward could have ever been.
He was willing, held that little bit of innocence Edward always lacked, enjoyed cuddling, and enjoyed Ling’s company fully!
Yes… Pride was a much better partner then Ed could have ever been.
