Why This Must Be Read: In retrospect, Riza had to admit calling her superior "useless" wasn't one of her more brilliant ideas. A wonderful, fun conversation between Riza and Roy that reveals some lovely insight into their relationship. And with an excerpt like this, I don't feel like there's much more I should add:

Everyday after the event, whenever he wasn't busy obsessing over the search for Scar, he sulked about the office, leaving his paperwork unfinished or halfheartedly filled with mistakes that she had to spend overtime correcting. But Riza was kind, and she tolerated and even forgave his childish behavior – until she found him standing melodramatically in the rain, staring into the gray overcast, chanting "useless... useless... useless..." like a mournful prayer to the sky.
