Synopsis

Even military people live normal lives. They search for love, have their hearts broken, and get scared just like everyone else.

Plot

At Central Command, someone has ordered the Mustang Unit to investigate their leader, for which Lt. Havoc asks everyone's help. Officer Falman, Lt. Breda, Sgt. Fuery, and Lt. Havoc begin observing and documenting Mustang's activities. However, Havoc is severely upset after everyone documents Mustang taking out Havoc's recent girlfriend to a play.

The Fighting Lieutenant

Havoc is sitting outside depressed due to his inability to keep a girlfriend. Unaware that it is his fault, Mustang asks the other men if they could find a woman for Havoc so it doesn't interfere with his military duties. When no one admits they can help, Mustang asks what kind of woman he likes, which Falman identifies as well-adjusted beauties, so Mustang assigns him the task. Meanwhile, Sheska meets with Lt. Colonel Archer, who wants to hire her on a provisional basis to recreate the files regarding Grand, Marcoh, and Tucker, along with the details regarding the Laboratory 5 and Central Prison incidents. Sheska accepts so she can secretly use the files in the Court Martial Office to find a new lead on the case of the death Maes Hughes. As Falman contemplates finding a well-adjusted beauty, he and Sheska bump into each other. After an awkward moment, Falman mentions that the well-adjusted beauty he is searching for is for Havoc, and he asks if she knows anybody. Overhearing them, Major Armstrong mentions his younger sister, who is of marrying age.

Arriving at the Armstrong Mansion, Havoc is nervous, and despite Fuery and Breda mentioning that he'll be living a life of luxury if he marries her, Havoc believes she might look too much like her brother. Once dragged inside, as Philip Gargantos Armstrong talks about their family's history, Havoc is intimidated by his and Mrs. Armstrong's appearances, and he can only imagine if Catherine resembles that. He is then introduced to Catherine who, compared to her father, mother, and brother is plain in appearance despite her shy nature. After almost being put off by her hobbies, Havoc musters the courage to ask her out, but is turned down because Catherine is only interested in men similar to her older brother Alex, and Havoc faints in embarrassment.

The Mystery of Warehouse 13

As Mustang burns a secret message from Major Armstrong, Falman and Fuery are on their way home that night when they hear a strange noise and see a number 13 that appears on a warehouse's front door. The next morning, Hawkeye wakes up when her dog licks her foot and she practices basic commands before she takes the dog with her to work. She walks into work where Fuery and Falman are mentioning their experience. Despite there are being 12 military warehouses, the two and Breda believe it to be a haunted place due to the past military executions, and they give a spooky tale of what they believe is true. When Mustang finds it ridiculous and believes that this story was created out of fear, the men want him to accompany them that night to expose the truth. Riding in a car driven by Hawkeye, Mustang finds it hard to be a role model for his cowardly men, and then they stop at Hughes' house. Meeting with Gracia and Elcia Hughes, Mustang is invited for tea but notices Winry observing him from the upstairs window still angry with him over her parents' deaths, so he declines tea with an excuse.

Sheska completes her report and gives it to Archer, who after reading Sheska's report, orders it to be destroyed despite her objections. Meeting with Führer Bradley, Archer mentions that with the few records from the 5th Laboratory he believes there is a secret conspiracy within the military due to the events that occurred because of it. With Kimblee and Tucker under his command, Archer receives the Führer's approval to head out with them and deal with the uprising in Reole. Archer also learns from the Führer that Scar has gone back into hiding. That night, Mustang looks around with his men and finds nothing conclusive until they see the letters A and B on two warehouse doors, where the letter B, with the aid of the darkness, could have part of it covered up so the rest would resemble the number 13. Just as they are ready to head back, the group finds dirt that had been recently dug up. Believing it to be the work of a murderer, Mustang orders the grounds dug up the next morning, but they soon witness that the bones are actually being buried by Black Hayate.

Later at the office, Mustang receives secret information through the phone, and meets with the Führer in his office to request that he accompany Archer and Armstrong on their mission to suppress the uprising in Reole, which is approved.
