Teaser: " 'You idiot!" he yelled at me. "Don't you have enough sense to know when someone is attracted to you?!' he demanded, still pressing me against the desk with his body. I had to contain my own shiver –he felt so good pressed up against me like this! 'Shall we review my 'symptoms'? Let's see… flushed face, irregular breathing, hot, shivering, and feeling faint. It doesn't exactly take an alchemaic genius to add all of that up and get 'arousal', Roy!' "
Inspiration: This fic is the sequel to "The Secrets We Keep".
Rating: M because no one can spell alchemy without it!
Warnings: -Yaoi -More questionable sex -Denial -Lies -Revelations -Dumb things .
Setting: Pretty cannon setting, but definitely an alternate timeline. And, there was no smut in the anime(s) :P
POV: Ed and Roy switch off pretty consistently. First person perspective for both.
Summary: Three months have passed since the last incident, but thirty minutes in Roy's office change things in way neither one ever imagined they would!
Additional ANs: A few helpful facts: Ed is 22 and still has his automail (and he can still do alchemy), Roy doesn't have the eye patch (nor has he lost his sight), and Maes is still alive. Need any more proof that this isn't cannon? :P PS: The title was borrowed from a Rascal Flatts song that really has nothing to do with the story. It's still a good song, though, lol. This most recent update (June 2013) features some changes. There are some changes to the sentences, some to the grammar, some to the structure… The entire story has been updated to reflect my current level as an author, which has progressed greatly from the original version of this story, which contained some of my very first male/male scenes. As such, the sex scenes have seen some dramatic editing and changes. There were some details which were incredibly unrealistic, and I changed them to reflect what would be true in such a situation. So buckle up, batten down the hatches, and enjoy this extensive edit of "Love You Out Loud".
Universe: This is part of my "Secrets" universe (which also includes the story written by Alphonseelric22). This story is part two, and comes after "The Secrets We Keep".
Word Count: The original had 6328 words. I'll get back to you on the word count for the edited version~
