Dragon Ball Zea - Chapter 8, Page 7“What’s it like?” Krillin asked, and the other two glanced at him. He was looking at Vegeta. “Er, being a space pirate? Kyen just said you and Kakarot were from a race of killers, but he didn’t exactly specify. Are you… mercenaries?” He guessed cautiously.Dragon Ball Zea - Chapter 8, Page 711 hours ago in General Fiction More Like This
“Kakarot’s mission to this planet should be enough of an answer.” Vegeta looked away. “We clear planets and sell them. Or we used to. Now we merely conquer whatever Frieza desires.” His fists clenched, his teeth grinding together. Damn it! Kakarot hadn’t been the only one to develop a short fuse. They might as well have been exhibits at a zoo the way Frieza treated them. He had been relieved to have Kakarot around at times, to keep Frieza’s attention away from humiliating him, but the levels they’d had to stoop to…
“Er… you okay, dude?” Krillin took a nervous step sideways, away from the angry saiyan.
Dragon Ball Zea - Chapter 8, Page 6“What does it… matter?” He nearly blacked out and stumbled to his knees. Furious with himself, he half-rose, but the light-headed feeling made him stop. It was bad enough on bended knee, but to pass out in front of the namek would be much worse.Dragon Ball Zea - Chapter 8, Page 611 hours ago in General Fiction More Like This
“It matters on whether or not that can be used against them.” Piccolo pointed out, folding his arms.
“N… no, they don’t.” Vegeta grumbled, letting his gaze drop and focusing on staying conscious. “They use… scouters.”
“That thing you were wearing when you arrived?” Piccolo queried.
“Yes.” Vegeta gave up and sat down, breathing deeply. His tail twitched limply behind him.
After a moment, the namek stepped forward. “I brought dinner.” He said, setting the tray down on a boulder nearby.
Vegeta ignored him.
“Kyen says Kakarot will arrive tomorrow.” Piccolo said, then took off. “Come to the Lookout; we’ll take you to wh

He ripped the scouter off his face and crushed it in anger, feeling a flash of uncertainty. What if they aren’t coming? He stared at his hand, and realized with a snarl that it was trembling. I am a saiyan! I am the Prince of Saiyans! I do not know fear!
He landed and took a deep breath. Relax. Orla is not high level; they will come. He gritted his teeth. His temper was a lot closer to the surface than he liked. Being the errand boy of Frieza… and worse, having his servants taken like they weren’t his, certainly had a role to play.
So what if the namekian is stronger? He snarled at himself. You are a warrior prince!
After a long moment, he relaxed. Damn it. He was a virtual prisoner, trapped on this stupid planet far from any allies. It would take a lot of training to make himself stronger than Piccolo, and in the meantime, not only was he at their mercy, but he doubted Frieza would overlook him taking any e
Dragon Ball Zea - Chapter 8, Page 4Kyen smiled. “As surely as I knew the virus would distract offworlders, I knew it would only delay an inevitable return. I have been preparing for your arrival. My son is a warrior namek, and one of greater power than you.” He closed his eyes. “Kakarot will arrive in three weeks, after which my time will come to an end. I cannot see very well past that, but I see your warlord defeated.”Dragon Ball Zea - Chapter 8, Page 412 hours ago in General Fiction More Like This
Vegeta blinked and braced himself, his fists tightening. “And why should I believe you?” He growled, but his eyes flicked unwillingly to Piccolo, who curled his lip, baring a pearly white fang. Damn. I’m outclassed. He bristled. If I end up fighting them, I’ll have to transform. Damn! Outclassed by a namek! He hesitated.
Kyen sighed and turned. “Krillin, do as we have discussed.” He said, and the human took off. “We do not have a moon, Vegeta, and I have warned Piccolo of your technique to create a synthetic one. Please, do
Dragon Ball Zea - Chapter 8, Page 3His eyes narrowed. “You’re a psychic.” He folded his arms. “I’d prefer if you kept out of my head, old man.”Dragon Ball Zea - Chapter 8, Page 312 hours ago in General Fiction More Like This
Kyen shrugged. “Old habit. You are a threat to the world I hold dear.” He glanced up at Piccolo and Krillin, then back. “Twenty years ago, an infant arrived on this world, programmed to eradicate all life forms it came across. As you can imagine, as guardian, I was against that kind of wanton destruction.”
“So you’re long-winded. Why am I not surprised?” Vegeta muttered, his tail flicking around behind him.
Kyen smiled wryly. “I will try to keep it short. Despite the cruelty of a culture willing to send away their infants to commit genocide before their first word, I was not willing to slay Kakarot for something he had no control over. Instead, I purified his heart.” He coughed. “A simple matter for one such as me.”
“Purified his heart?” Vegeta queried disbelievingly

“It won’t work this time.” The namek’s eyes narrowed. “We can’t exactly… erase his programming.” He pointed out.
Vegeta considered the two of them. “That’s right. All you’ve managed to do is buy yourselves some time.”
“So is that why you’re here?” The human asked, balling his fists. “To wipe us out?”
Vegeta smirked in response.
“You’ll find that tough, saiyan.” He started powering up.
“Krillin, wait.” The namek placed his hand on his companion’s shoulder. “Where is he?”
Vegeta’s eyes narrowed. They can raise and lower their power level as well. He twitched. Is that how Kakarot learned? “He’s on another mission.” He paused. “Well, he’s probably on his way here by now.” His eyes flicked to the na

I have a welcoming committee. He realized. Two strong powers were standing outside. He frowned. This planet is supposed to be low-level. He opened the capsule and emerged, wincing a little as his legs remembered how to straighten. He blinked in the sunlight and looked up.
“A namek?” He twitched in surprise. What’s a namek doing here? He frowned. Standing beside the namek was a short, bald human in an orange gi. Of the two, the namek was stronger, but both had a startling power level for such a low-level planet. As far as he could tell, though, they were the only two.
The human leaned towards his namek companion. “Is this the one Kyen warned us about?”
“They look similar.” The namek frowned. “Are you Kakarot?”
Vegeta gave a start. “How do you know that name?” Sounds like I’m in th
