It was an odd room.
Alphonse couldn't entirely place what was odd about it, without the vision to look around and see, but there was definitely something odd about it. Edward had gone out of his way to find this bathroom (apparently he had something against the bathroom they were closer to, having spent a lot of their time in the grand room after they parted ways with Jonouchi), and he had expressed, in a way, that there was something odd about it...but all Alphonse could gather was a light, almost perfume-y scent. Like extravagant soap - the kind that even Winry would sometimes complain about wanting, but not being able to afford. The kind of luxurious, expensive stuff you didn't see just anywhere...and even if a slightly damaged sense of smell, he could smell them.
And the air felt somehow odd to him, or maybe it was just the fact that his skin was exposed to the air again, after so long of being covered. All of this bandages were off, along with the shirt that would normally be covering the ones on his back, middle and chest - the bandages on his hip were already done, at least...
He didn't really have a lot to do or say to his brother right then, though, just trying to bear the stinging sensation of air and ointment against his burnt and scarred skin, staring into the blackness of closed eyes. Just letting Edward bandage him up.
