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.
"All Tenkaichi Budoukai participants report to the qualifying arena. Th

"The longest journey is the journey inward."
"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."

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

"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

"The greatest griefs are those we cause ourselves."

Chiyo ducked into a roll and sprang back up, gasping for breath.
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.
"We just received an update," a news anchor was saying, "The investigative team in Ginger Town has discovered many pieces of clothing b

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

"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."

Chapter 64 - Rampage
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!"
"I've gotta stop 'em!" Goku said, putting two fingers to his fore

Chapter 47 - Blackmailed!
"The world is always in movement."
- V.S. Naipaul
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

"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 deepest definition of youth is life as yet untouched by tragedy."

"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

Chapter 43 - Hatred and Destruction's Being
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!"
"Some manners would be - oh, alright. Wait a minute."
Kaiou's brows furrowed behind his tinted glasses, and his antennae began to

Chapter 51 - Saiyan Appetites
A few minutes later, the announcer's voice again rang out over the arena.
"Now to follow that seat-gripping action a special attraction! The new winner of the youth division will battle the world champion Hercule!"
"This will be interesting," Chiyo said, unable to keep the sarcasm out of her voice.
Trunks and Satan came into the arena. Chiyo couldn't hear a word over the deafening cheers of the crowd, but by his stance Satan was probably showing off for the fans.
"Should we head back?" Kuririn said. "The prelims should be over by now."
"Hey!" Videl said. "I thought you were his friend! You're not gonna watch him fight Hercule?"
"Yeah, sure, sounds like a great opportunity," Gohan said weakly. Chiyo shot him a withering glance.
"We'll see you there," Goku replied. "Bye."
"Chiyo?" Videl asked. "I bet you could learn a lot from this fight."
"Um...." Chiyo racked her brains to come up with a good excuse. "Um...sorry, I'm really hu

"Hey, wake up."
Chiyo glanced up to find Kuririn's face inches from hers.
"What?" she said, blinking.
"I asked you to hurry up," the fighter replied, grinning. "You've been walking like a puppet on strings ever since we met those weird guys back there."
"Huh? Oh, sorry "
Chiyo suddenly realised she and her group were in an open area like the qualifying arena. A table with a white box and a large board were set up in the centre. The announcer that had greeted Goku earlier, two officials and another short, stout little man in a white shirt were conversing amongst themselves.
"Can I have your attention?" the stout man called. "Let's start the lottery! Please step up and draw a number when I call your name." He glanced at his clipboard. "Let's see Killa!"
A lanky, dark-skinned man brushed past Chiyo and approached the two men sitting at the table. She watched with interest as he drew a green ball painted with the number 14.

Chapter 44 Kuririn's Wish
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!"
Tenshinhan folded his arms and frowned. "Kuririn I thought you liked Eighteen. So why remove the bomb from Seventeen?"
"Well, yeah I did like her, and I know Seventeen is the perfect guy for her."
"Is this what is known as love?" Piccolo muttered, "I do not understand

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."
"Gohan's still there," Chiyo replied, a little sheepish

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

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
