"Now Chi-Chi, don't be so upset!"
Glowering, Chi-Chi pressed down on the accelerator of the aircar as it shot over the ocean.
"Stuff it, Dad!" she snapped as seawater sprayed them both. "I told them to be back by dark!"
"Goku hasn't been to the Turtle Hut in a dog's age," Gyumao said, wiping his forehead. "Probably had a lotta catching up to do lost track of time "
"Well, good for Goku!" Chi-Chi snapped, and swerved to miss a dolphin leaping gleefully from the water. "Except our son has school!"
Gyumao stared at the back of his daughter's head. "But Chi-Chi, Gohan's only four years old! He can miss a day of preschool and it won't make any--"
"Get with the times, Pop! It's a competitive world - and it's never too early to get an edge!"
Gyumao sighed and shook his head, gripping the sides of the aircar as his daughter swerved again.
He loved his daughter, but sometimes she went overboard as f

Chapter 46 Son Goten
7th April, 774 A.D.
Son Gohan saved Earth when he ascended to Super Saiyan level 2 and defeated the nightmare known as Cell. But the price was high - his father Goku lost his life in the battle and decided to stay in the Afterlife.
And so seven years passed on Earth and the family of Son Goku carried on in his absence...
Son Gohan slammed the door of the Son family home behind him.
"I'm going, Mother!" he called.
The boy who saved the world had grown into a young man over the years. Taller than his late father, his hair was cut short and stood up in wild spikes. He was wearing casual clothes and had a bag slung over his shoulder. But for all his change in appearance, his eyes held the same kindness they always had.
Ch-Chi appeared, closing the door much softer than Gohan had. She held out a box wrapped in cloth.
"Don't forget your lunch, Gohan," she said. "You don't want to go hungry today, and city food is so expensive."

"What did he say?" he said. "Did he say they're not…?"
"Then who -"
"Bullshit!" Vegeta snarled. "If that's not the right Android, then what the hell is it? Well?"
Kuririn turned to him. "Maybe it's no big deal…history turned out differently anyway, right? So maybe the Androids are just changed from what he knows…"
Tenshinhan sighed. "I hope so."
A shadow fell over the area. Chiyo glanced up and saw a red aircar blocking out the sun above, coming in to land. She recognized it as Bulma's aircar, but she sensed three people's chi, not two.
"It's Bulma and Yajirobe," she called, pointing.
"Watch out!" Trunks yelled at the vehicle. "Don't come any closer!"
Chiyo opened her mouth to ask if they would hear him, but a roar of laughter from Twenty interrupted her.
"I spoke the truth when I said you have no chance!" he shouted triumphantly. "Numbers Seventeen and Eighteen will come for you soon!"
With that he fired a chi blast at the aircar. Chiyo leapt forwards but someone else

Chapter 33 A New Kami-sama
"Dende, can you really make Dragon Balls?" Piccolo asked.
Kuririn, Gohan, Trunks, Goku, Chiyo, Piccolo and Mr. Popo were gathered around Dende, the Namekian boy who was to become the new Kami-sama.
"I was told he could!" Goku said, grinning at the boy. "The elder on Planet Namek said he was really good."
Dende inclined his head and smiled shyly. "I think I can make some Dragon Balls in one hundred days."
"One hundred days?!" Goku and Piccolo exclaimed in unison.
"Yes." Dende nodded, misinterpreting the reason for their dismay. "But if I had the stones that were Earth's Dragon Balls, then I could make some right away."
"Great!" Kuririn said. "Can you make them so we get three wishes like with Planet Namek's Dragon Balls?"
"And if you do," Piccolo said, "will we be able to resurrect a lot of people with one wish? For example, bring back all the people killed by Cell?"
"I should be able to make them like that," Dende said. "But if I did, we would

Chapter 50 - Little Warriors
"HELLO! Welcome to the 25th Tenkaichi Budoukai!"
There was a roar of sound as the people seated in the arena responded to the announcer's cry.
Chiyo watched the spectacle from a balcony in the arena. Her group - minus Gohan - stood nearby, waiting for the junior division to begin.
"It's amazing how much this place has changed," Kuririn commented. "The crowd wasn't half as big when we last competed."
Chiyo glanced at him, remembering the stories Kuririn had told her about the earlier tournaments, in which he and her father had competed when they were around her age. She wondered how the Budoukai had suddenly grown in popularity - though most likely it had something to do with the events that had happened almost seven years ago, to the day.
The announcer was shouting enthusiastically into his microphone, gesturing to the paved walkway leading away from the arena. The junior division participants began to file into the arena when their names and ages w

Chapter 31 - From Bad To Worse
May 17th, 767 A.D.
Only three more hours passed, but things went from bad to worse. Although Vegeta was certainly strong enough to defeat Cell, he let the monster go to absorb the Android Eighteen and become a challenge for him - which Cell did gladly, although in its perfect form it greatly outmatched Vegeta. The Saiyan was defeated, and while Trunks stepped in with a new form beyond his father's, he too was defeated due to weaknesses in the form.
However, instead of killing Trunks, Cell proposed something entirely different: a game. A martial arts competition much like the Tenkaichi Budoukai, in which it would be the only opponent and others would fight it. It promised to make a broadcast on TV
"My name is Cell."
Cell's face, filled the TV screen. Chiyo leaned forward from her position and turned the TV up.
"Cell is on!" she shouted.
Immediately Piccolo, Tenshinhan and Mr. Popo came running. They were the only ones at Kami-sama's p

The Earth's special forces, the remaining Namekians and their Dragon Balls were brought to Earth by their Eternal Dragon Porunga, but Goku was not among them - the Saiyan warrior had stayed behind to battle Freeza on the collapsing Planet Namek.
One hundred and thirty-one days, one Namekian year passed, and Kuririn and Yamcha were restored to life by the regenerated dragon. It was found that Porunga could not restore Son Goku, however, because he was alive.
Another Namekian year passed, and this time it was Chaozu and Tenshinhan who were brought back to life. However when a wish was made to bring Goku to Earth he refused, saying he would return on his own in time.
A year passed in peace...

Chiyo got up at dawn the next day to train. Unlike Gohan, seven years of peace had not seen her slack off in her training, though these days her studies kept her busy for most of the week. She fought for the fun of it, for the discipline, and to keep herself fit. Even as a young girl, experience had shown her that enemies could appear at any time, especially when you least expect it.
So the teenager left the house with her lunch wrapped in a cloth, intending to stay out all day.
Hours passed with Chiyo working tirelessly, only stopping to eat lunch. She began to work on her chi techniques while in Super Saiyan transformation; discipline had taught her full control of her power, though she had not ascended like Gohan had.
Chiyo gathered chi in her fingertips and aimed for the only pillar of rock left standing in the area. The chi grew in red points of light on her fingers and she snapped her wrist

Chapter 49 - Preliminaries
Chiyo weaved through the crowds of people milling around the area, trying to keep up with her group. The Tenkaichi Budoukai was nothing like her mother and Kuririn had described. It looked more like a festival than a tournament.
Goku, Gohan and Kuririn were deep in conversation when Chiyo brushed past them.
"Goten," she called.
Goten and Trunks, who were walking ahead, turned.
"Here," Chiyo said, piling zeni into her brother's hand. "Use this if you get hungry. Don't spend it all on sweets."
"Why don't I get any?" Trunks grumbled.
Chiyo raised her eyebrows. "Your parents are rich. Don't they give you an allowance?"
"Yeah, but Mother didn't give me money to spend today."
"That's because she knew you'd spend it on rubbish." Chiyo deposited some zeni into Trunks's hand. "So use it wisely, boys - or else!"
A nearby loudspeaker crackled and a disembodied voice blared from it.

"Goku, what are you doing?" Piccolo said out loud.
Chiyo didn't bother to comment on the revelation. She had guessed that her father handsome trick up his sleeve; after all, he knew he couldn't beat Boo by himself.
"I'm interested to see this trick of yours," Bobbidi said, "but time is short. West City is expecting us, so...maybe next time. Boo, hurry up and kill him."
"What are you doing?" Goku shouted suddenly, making Chiyo jump. "Stop goofing off and get the radar!"
What on Earth? she thought, moments before realising that Trunks must have stopped when he felt Goku's chi. She cast out her senses and felt Trunks' chi moving again, towards West City.
"What radar?" Bobbidi demanded. "Did I miss something? Who were you talking to and what is this radar?"
"It's nothing. Don't worry about it."
Bobbidi cackled. "It sounds like you're planning something useless."
Goku's chi dropped and his hair fell back into its normal mop.

The sky was cloudless and the air hot - even the wind was warm enough that not even those wearing the lightest clothes could say they were comfortable.
But not everyone could fly.
Goku closed his eyes and lifted his face to the wind, letting it whip through his hair. The clothes from Yardrat were made for their cold planet; in summer on Earth they were sweltering.
"So, Dad," Gohan said brightly. "Are you excited about seeing Mother and Chiyo?"
"Yeah," Goku said absently. His mind was focused on food. He wondered what Chi Chi would make for lunch. Maybe noodles. Or maybe soup. Or maybe she would make fish, if he caught one. Or she might -
Goku blinked and looked at his son. "Uh..yeah? What is it?"
"I asked you a question, Dad." Gohan looked vaguely amused. "I asked if you think my sister remembers you."
Goku scratched his head. "Huh?"
"Chiyo!" Gohan said, surprised. "Don't you even remember her?"
"Of course I remember Chiyo." Goku grinned sheepishly. "It's just been so long since

"Nothing is easier than to denounce the evildoer; nothing is more difficult than to understand him."
"Can't this plane go any faster?"
Clutching her daughter tightly, Chi-Chi worried at her lip and stared out of the window. One year old Chiyo squirmed and made a grab for her red bracelets, but her bubbling laughter didn't make Chi-Chi smile or ease her worries at all.
Kamesen'nin, Bulma and Karin glanced uneasily at the young mother occasionally, but otherwise didn't speak. Chi-Chi could be truly frightening when she was angry, and no-one wanted to antagonize her any further.
Chi-Chi jingled her bracelets and smiled vaguely as Chiyo shrieked with laughter, waving fat fists in the air in an attempt to grab the jewellery.
"We'll see Daddy and big brother soon," she murmured, cuddling the baby.
Bulma leaned forward and peered through the cockpit window.
"Hey," she said. "I think we've found them."

"I'm really proud of you, son."
It was the next day and the Z Fighters, minus Tenshinhan and Chaozu, had come to see Trunks off. Even Vegeta was there, leaning against a tree with the ever-present scowl on his face. Chiyo felt a new kind of respect for the Saiyan however; she had been told by Gohan how Vegeta had attacked Cell when his son had been killed by the monster. Even though the attack was foolhardy it showed that he did care about someone other than himself, and Chiyo didn't dislike him nearly as much as she used to.
Bulma pressed Trunks's hand in hers, and smiled at him.
"Thanks, Mother," he said.
Trunks's time machine was parked on the front lawn of Capsule Corporation; it reminded Chiyo of a fat, yellow spider with a domed head.
"Good luck," Gohan said, grinning at Trunks. "You can definitely beat those Androids

When we last left our friends, they were speeding Goku, Gohan and Kuririn to hospital for immediate medical attention. Bulma tried out the remote control on the other Saiyan's space ship, only to have it self-destruct. But soon they were paid a visit by Mr Popo, who took Bulma to the space ship Kami-sama arrived on Earth in
"It's in excellent condition," Bulma said, "and with it we can reach Namek in one month! I just have to fix it up a little. We can leave in five days."
Goku, Gohan, Kuririn, Bulma, Kamesen'nin, Karin, Yajirobe, Chi-Chi and Gyumao listened to Bulma's explanation of the ship and its location. She and Mr Popo had only been gone for an hour, but it seemed like their hopes weren't in vain after all.
"So we're going to Namek using Kami-sama's ship," Kuririn said.
Bulma nodded. "Hey, thanks for coming with us, Mr Popo."

"He used to be the greatest martial arts master in the world," Kuririn explained.
Tenshinhan, Chiyo, Trunks and Kuririn were on their way to Mount Paozu. From North City the journey took around an hour - it was halfway across the continent, after all.
For the last twenty minutes Kuririn had been entertaining Chiyo with tales of his and Goku's exploits when they had been boys training under Muten Roshi, once the greatest martial artist in the world.
"Why Kamesen'nin, though?" Chiyo asked. "Turtle hermit is a funny name to call someone."
"Well, I don't know." Kuririn scratched his head, shrugging. "He lives on an island in the sea called Turtle Island - and he lives with a turtle. Maybe that's why. I'm sure you've been there before."
"Maybe. I don't remember."
"Hey, Kuririn," Tenshinhan interrupted. "I'm going to check in with Chaozu. I know he's worried."
"I'll be back before things turn bad again," Tenshinhan continued. "Though I don't think I'll be of any use."

Three years passed, in which Earth's special forces devoted their time to preparing for the arrival of the Androids, as predicted by the mysterious youth they had met on the day of Goku's return - the boy who destroyed Freeza and King Kold effortlessly.
Finally the morning of May 12th, 767 A.D. arrived, and Goku, Gohan, Piccolo and Chiyo found themselves flying over the southern ocean to an island nine kilometres southwest of South City...
May 12th, 767 A.D.
Chiyo was nervous.
The Androids were to arrive that day on an island, sometime in the early morning. She knew that much. She was not, however, nervous about the Androids - in her mind, she held no doubt that her father would beat them. She was nervous because it was her first real fight.
For three years she'd trained every day. For the first year, Papa had given her exercises - things like chi control and defense, and a lot of climbing and

The picture unfolded in her mind's eye, as clear as if she were actually there. Cell stood calmly near the pit he had created just a few hours ago, smirking. The Z fighters huddled together, their faces covered in dust and pale with fear. Nearby, the bodies of Eighteen, Trunks and, strangely enough, herself; sprawled on the ground.
But that sight wasn't what prompted the scream. Gohan crouched before a prone Vegeta, his face drawn with pain. His left arm flopped uselessly at his side, the burnt and raw flesh oozing rivulets of blood. She had never seen Gohan that hurt before, and despite her anger the sight frightened her.
"It's over," Kaiou said grimly. "There's no way he can continue to fight with that injury."
"No!" Goku snapped, though his face was pale and sweating. "Let me talk to him!"

Chiyo wandered through the halls of Kami-sama's palace, feeling very full. Mr. Popo, being the kind host that he was, had made her enough food to feed ten people - and she had eaten almost all of it.
She came out into the tiled courtyard and paused. Instead of being a brilliant blue, the sky was black.
Did the sun set while I was inside? she wondered. I thought I was only in there for ten minutes...
The sight triggered a vague memory of something that had happened years ago, when she was a little girl.
"Shen Long? The Dragon God?!" Goku was saying as Chiyo rejoined her friends. "But why - "
"Bulma had the Dragon Balls, right?" Kuririn said. "They don't know what's goin' on, so why..."
"Vegeta killed all those people. They're bringing them back to life!"
"Oh, dear..." Dende said, shaking his head. "If they use the three wishes now, the Dragon Balls will turn to stone for a year!"

As soon as it was safe, Chiyo climbed out of a window on Kame House's second storey and headed for Ginger Town. She couldn't sit idly at home anymore. Something terrible was out there - something even worse than the Androids. She had to know what was going on, even if it meant leaving Papa for a while.
Mama will be mad, she thought, and glanced back at the rapidly disappearing island. But I can't sit around doing nothing.
She sped up; her heart thundered as she imagined what Kuririn and Trunks would say when she caught up to them. Would they be mad? Would they tell her to go back to the island? She hoped not. She didn't want to make any trouble for either of them, but she wouldn't go back.
To her surprise, Kuririn was waiting for her around twenty miles ahead. She sped up, grinning sheepishly. He didn't look mad, though. Just amused.
"I was wondering when you'd hurry up," he said. "I knew you wouldn't stay behind."

Goku awoke at dawn with the first rays of sunlight shining on his face. For a moment he thought he was still on Planet Yardrat, sleeping in their weird, pod-like beds. But someone stirred beside him, and he smiled. No, he was back on Earth, on Mt Paozu, at home.
Goku rolled over and buried his face in his wife's hair.
Maybe I'll stay in bed a while longer, he thought, sliding an arm around Chi-Chi's waist. Just a bit longer...
Both adults jerked upright as the sound of breaking glass reached their ears.
"Chiyo," Chi-Chi muttered, throwing back the bed covers. She left the room hurriedly, tossing her hair over her shoulder and leaving Goku to follow behind, scratching his head.
The rest of the house was quiet; obviously Gohan wasn't up yet. Goku took a left turn in the hallway and went into his son's room.
"Time to get up, son!" he said cheerfully, throwing open the curtains. Sunlight flooded in and the pile of blankets on the bed moved.

Shen Long vanished, and the glow that came from the base of his tail dispersed, sending orbs of light scattering in every direction. Chiyo was reminded of when Dende reactivated the Dragon Balls.
"Kuririn why did you wish for that?" Trunks asked.
The fighter shrugged. "I felt bad for them. Imagine having a bomb in your body!"
"You're a sweet guy," Gohan said, grinning.
"It was Dr Gero who turned her into an Android." Kuririn shrugged again. "She didn't do anything wrong. And Yamcha, I'm sorry you couldn't get the necklace for your girlfriend."
Yamcha burst out laughing. "Can't you tell a joke when you hear one?! You think I'd use Shen Long for something that stupid!"

Ten minutes passed and the group occupied themselves in any way they could. Piccolo and Tenshinhan seemed content to stand on the edge of the outcropping and gaze down into the city, as if the Androids would suddenly reveal themselves. Yamcha was still sitting on the ground scowling, deep in thought. Chiyo was playing with a frog in the grass, making it dance to the tune of a children's song. Goku, Gohan and Kuririn were gathered around Bulma and baby Trunks, who they were trying their best to amuse.
Kuririn was pulling a truly dreadful face at a laughing Trunks when Piccolo growled, "Someone's coming this way. I sense no malice."
Immediately a tense silence fell over the group and all laughter died. Chiyo trailed off in mid-rhyme and glanced up at the sky. Someone with a small chi was approaching them. It couldn't be the Androids, could it? They would be stronger than that, surely.
And yet, Papa had always told her that some people could suppress their chi. She searched the sky anxiou

For the last two hours she'd been training hard, practicing familiar routines and things she'd picked up from her spar with Yamcha. He'd gone a few rounds with her before joking that she'd worn him out, and gone back inside to watch TV.
Chiyo hopped to the door and pulled it open, sticking her head inside.
Kuririn, Yamcha, Kamesen'nin and Oolong were watching the TV, looking grave. Kuririn put a finger to his lips and beckoned her over, clutching the telephone to his ear. Chiyo went inside and crowded close to them, blinking at the screen.
