Android Saga - Part 4: Modus Operandi
His arms stretched straight forward, Krillin flew in the rear next to Trunks, whose presence was overshadowed by Goku and Vegeta and allowed him to slip into the background. Despite being one of the weakest Z fighters, he still took the threat of the androids seriously. He intended to use the opportunity flying to Bulma's to be the first to individually discuss things with the time traveling half Saiyan.
"So, Trunks, do you really think that if you team up with Goku and Vegeta that the three of you will be able to take on these androids? Not that I'm doubting you, man, I just realize that my own contributions to the team are pretty small. You Super Saiyans raise the bar to a place I just can't go."
Trunks' long silvery hair rippled violently in the wind. He had heard Krillin's questi

Tonight I'm on guard duty.
My son has a virus.
At any point he'll need me.
This isn't the common cold.
The people I've killed.
The worlds I've destroyed.
What do they do?
Hold it against me?
Did they bring it upon my son?
Is this my punishment?
Because it's not fair.
At least I obliterated them.
At least they are not suffering.
Unlike my Trunks.
He's in the grips of a raging fever.
I've made many mistakes.
If not for him!
My life would be different!
He killed my race!
But it is me who is remembered the killer.
I have Bulma as my mate.
I wipe the layer of sweat off of Trunks.
Give him my ki to aid.
He's pale and he's in agony.
Thrashing about in his bed.
I don't want him to die.
But I've got ghosts in my past,
Who'd like to see him die.
Because of me.
I was a bloodthirsty killer.
Now I'm a father.
So to hell with my victims.
I want my son to survive.
If they hold it against me,
Let them kill me instead.
Leave my son Trunks alone.

Vegeta was regretting promising to look after Trunks for the day, and he mentally berated himself for not asking his mother-in-law to take over.
Realizing that he couldn't train all day as Bulma would kill him for not taking proper care of his son, Vegeta decided to ask Trunks what he wanted to do, and the demi-saiyan had replied cheerfully that he wanted to go to the cinema.
So Vegeta disappeared to get changed leaving Trunks to bounce around the living room in excitement, yelling out different movies they could watch at the local cinema.
After deliberately taking his time just to wind up Trunks, he emerged from his and Bulma's bedroom, picked up his wallet, grabbed Trunks by the scruff of his neck and left the house.
Trunks calmed down a little when Vegeta let go of him, chuckling when Trunks landed flat on his face and whined about it.
After threatening to take him back, Trunks behaved himself.
The pair walked alongside each other quite happily.
"So, what movie are we going to watch

I don't own DBZ
Life, what was the point anymore? Why was it ever worth it? For him the only escape from the hells of life was when he closed his eyes at night and hoped for a better day. It was all because he was weak, a low class worthless piece of trash. Or at least that's what he was told. What else was he to think? For every family member he once had, a tombstone had eventually taken their place. The only person he shared any connections with was his mother.
"Why God? Why do I have to be the one to still be alive?" The little boy cried with his hands clasped together. Thankfully there was no one near him or this would only result in another beating from a slightly superior.
"Why have you taken everyone away from me!? I'm only 5 years old! It shouldn't be this way." He shifted his legs that were shackled together so they wouldn't scrape against the cement floors and cut him again.

Summary: Chi-Chi would have never guessed she would have two weddings in her lifetime. She wants to salvage her marriage, but the law just won't allow it. Does Goku love her enough to stay with her, or does the thrill for adventure mean more to him?
Death Did We Part
Chi-Chi hummed quietly to herself, her attention completely divulged in fulfilling the task at hand - preparing lunch for her boys.
The day had started off fairly early; Goten had awaken before everyone, barreling throughout the house with a spark of energy, and headed straight for their bedroom, but not without waking up his big brother first. It had been like this for awhile now. Ever since the defeat of the evil and twisted fiend Majin Buu, the family had opted to spend some well-deserved time together. Goku hadn't been able to go a day without being bombarded by his sons, Goten especially, not that the Saiyan had a problem with it.
Even now, Goku was out with Goten and Gohan on a father-son fishing trip. The

Why do I bother sometimes?
It's not like he helps at times,
Won't be my boyfriend,
Because he's too proud,
And I've got one.
He hates when I question him.
But he just deserves it,
And that's when I tell him,

That's what you normally do,
You completely blank me!
Shout if you've broke something again!
Raid the fridge and then back to your training!
That's what life is!

"But truuuuuunks! The last time you had a plan and I was involved in it I got grounded for two weeks" whined the younger saiyan.
"Goten this plan is full proof! We won't get caught this time"
"That's what you said the last time" Goten looking anything but pleased at the moment.
"Look Goten. Either you help me with my plan and neither of us gets in trouble, OR I do it by myself and PURPOSELY get caught and say that you put me up to it. It's your choice" Trunks had his father's smirk on knowing he won the argument by the look on his best friend's face.

Trunks had been tucked in by Bulma an hour before and was fast asleep. Bulma was now laying down on her bed, patiently waiting for Vegeta to join her. Vegeta casually walks in, but looked distraught and upset.
"Vegeta...Sweetie what's wrong" Bulma asked calmly, trying to hide the worry in her voice.
"B-Bulma...We need to talk..About what happened at the tournament.What You saw me do..." he slowly said while sitting next to her.
"Vegeta. It's alright, you don't have to say anything. I already know, and I already forgave you." She tried to put on the best smile she could, but Vegeta could still see her pain that she tried to mask.
"Ahh that's right...Our bond. So I don't need to explain my reasoning for doing what I did."
"Veg-" Bulma began but was immediately cut off by Vegeta.
Haunting Nightmares"Trunks...Bulma...I do this for you...and yes, even for you Kakarott!" Moments later there was a blinding light with explosions. The proud Saiyan Prince sacrificed himself hoping to put an end to Majin Buu once and for all. And of course, to keep his loved ones safe. He opened his eyes and found himself in a familiar place. He was back at Capsule Corps.Haunting Nightmares3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
"What How did I end up here? Didn't I just die ?" He looked at his hands, turning them over and examining himself. Then he looked around the room. He was definitely dead and he knew that, but why was he at home and not at the check in station? This was so strange to him and he couldn't comprehend anything at the moment. All of a sudden he felt two small Ki's coming from his room well his old room. He walked up the stairs that now for some reason seem endless. He eventually reaches his room, opened the door and entered. His heart shattered into pieces with what he was witnessing.

Mirai Trunks was having a bit of difficulty adjusting to the gravity, since it was 10 times stronger than Earth's. Vegeta however was unfazed since he was more then use to training in extreme gravity. He took a glance at his son and was a bit disappointed of how easily scared he was by the idea of it all.For your mother3 years ago in Profiles More Like This

"Of course I can handle it! I'm not a kid Dad! I WILL stay the full year and train as hard as I can. The Future right now needs all the help it can get."

"No I can't. I'm incapable of doing such a thing."
"Too bad because you're doing it. It's not an option. I already got him a gift from me, now it's your turn. Do you really want to look into his eyes Christmas day, and see them full of hurt and it would be all because you, his hero, did not get him something from the heart."

Never mess with Vegeta"She's STILL on the phone? What the hell can you possibly talk about for so damn long" Vegeta had asked Trunks. Bulma had been on the phone with Chi Chi for a good two hours. They were constantly calling each other all the time and he could never understand how they never got tired of talking to one another. Really you can only talk with the same person for so long, at least that's how Vegeta saw it.

"His hair is at his shoulders! HE LOOKS LIKE A GIRL. He's getting a hair cut today woman!"
"The hell he is." They had been arguing about their 10 year old son's hair for the past week now. Bulma thought he looked adorable with it long, but Vegeta thought it made him look like a sissy. And he'd be damned if his heir looked like a little school girl. It just wasn't going to happen. Bulma could complain to him about it all she wants but he would get a haircut if it was the last thing he did. Then it hit him. 'I'm obviously going nowhere with this; I'll just have to cut it when she isn't around, which should be in about 5 minutes since she has a meeting today. Perfect.'

She was finally starting to look her age 50 really did suck. Sure she was fit for her age she thought, but there was no hiding those wrinkles. And on top of it all, she was starting to FEEL her age. Bulma always knew that this day would come, it was inevitable, but it still hurt all the same. She turned to the right and next to her mirror was a picture of her hugging Vegeta outside Capsule Corps. It had been taken only a couple of weeks ago, but with the way Vegeta looked? You would have never known. He was actually 2 years older than Bulma, but looked like he just turned 40 due to his Saiyan genes. He aged a lot slower than humans so he could fight longer.Why are you still with me3 years ago in Profiles More Like This

It seemed to be impossible that they obtained that speed and raw power. Why could they ascend to the legendary Super Saiyan but not him? He was the one with royal blood. Not those low class warriors, yet somehow they achieved what he could not. It was infuriating. The elite warrior spent his entire life trying to achieve what they somehow obtained accidently without even knowing the honor behind it all. It just wasn't fair.

Those 3 years chapter 2Couple of months had passed since Vegeta took off with the ship and everyone seemed to be enjoying the peace on Earth, everyone except for Bulma. With each passing day she grew more worried for the Saiyan Prince but never understood why. He was arrogant, demanding, hot headed, and never had she ever met anyone so stubborn. And she loved that about him. It was refreshing to deal with someone who was always up for a challenge, Yamcha always caved into her. He never made arguing fun. That dream that she had about the Prince only a few nights ago didn't help much either. She had dreamt that he came back in the middle of the night and invited himself into her bedroom. Next thing she knew he was on top of her, kissing her with raw desire and lust. The dream felt so real and she couldn't keep her mind off of it, so to distract herself, she figured she was have a little BBQ with Yamcha, Puar and Krillin.Those 3 years chapter 23 years ago in Profiles More Like This
