Black groaned as he was slowly starting to wake up. He felt a presence, but went for ignoring it. He felt like he was stabbed all over his body and left to bleed. Tired. In pain. Weak. Those were things he never felt before. Well, so strong, he never considered them before. What happened? Where was he? Right before to open his eyes he felt the presence coming near him. Gowasu? Gowasu... Gowasu!
He grabbed that hand as he opened his eyes and looked up. The owner of the hand yelped, he looked up, and for a moment thought it was Trunks, before he realized this one was a woman. As he realized who was in front of him he immediately released her and sat up. She backed away a few steps and held her hand. Bulma felt shivers as he looked at her, ''I-I only wanted to check in on you. You were out for a while and when I saw you were giving sights of waking up I-'', ''Your hair is short... You're from the past, are you?'', ''Huh?''.
In the other side of the room, from the bed, Zamasu said ''Yeah, we're in the past.'', Black looked at Zamasu, he was bandaged. Him? Bandaged? How? He looked back at his hands and saw that he wasn't in a good shape as well, bandages as well. He didn't understood for a moment, then realization struck him. Gowasu betrayed them. He looked back at Bulma and asked ''Trunks?'', she looked at him, and nodded, ''Yeah, he saved you two. Vegeta and Goku explained everyone what happened.'', then she yelped again as he got up, ''Gowasu, that bastard.'', ''W-wait! Where are you going?! You can't leave the bed just yet!'', Bulma asked as she saw Black, he walked a few feet ''I'm going to kill him.'', but then... he lost his balance and fell face first on the floor. He didn't got up.
''He fainted didn't he?'', Asked Zamasu, ''Yes, he did.'', Bulma sighed and walked to the unconscious man, ''He took that in pretty well, you know... considering...'', he said, but then shut up, ''Wait until he wakes up.'', answered Bulma, as she grabbed the man's armpits, ''Nah, he'll be calmer when he wakes up.'', ''HNNNNGH! HE'S SO HEAVY!!!'', Bulma managed to get out as she struggled to get him up, but only managing to lift him an inch from the ground, her face red with effort, Zamasu sweat dropped ''Do you... need help?''.
Trunks stood on the couch in the living room with the others, Beerus was yawning, Whis was, well, just standing there, Vegeta was arguing with Goku over the plan while Piccolo was having an annoyed face because of the two and because at some point they argued about the Mafuuba, and Kuririn was trying to stop their fighting and 18 was playing with her daughter. 'Why did I asked?', He kept asking himself until he felt tiny hands tugging his palm.
Maaron was playing with Trunks' hand. Trunks chuckled when he tried to retrieve his hand but the baby wouldn't let go of it, but he didn't mind, he liked kids, so he went on with it and played with her, grabbing her nose with his fingers and tickling her tummy. She laughed, and at the sound of the laughing, the others looked at them and the tension from the atmosphere subsided.
After a while Kuririn and 18 had to leave, and they fell into silence again. ''So... Gowasu was the head of all of this happening in your future?'', Beerus looked at Trunks, the younger didn't lift his gaze but murmured a quiet ''Yes.'', ''You know, you weren't obligated to bring them here, right? You could have killed them right then and there.'', what could he say to that? What did he wanted to hear from him? Trunks decided to shut up. Then, the quiet was broken like an elephant falling on thin glass, by Bulma.
''STOP MOVING! YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO MOVE! YOU'RE GOING TO FALL AGAIN! DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW HARD IT WAS FOR ME TO LIFT YOU UP LAST TIME?!'', All having a poker face and sweat dropping turned behind to see. They looked at the door to see Zamasu, as well sweat dropping, entering the room, and after him was Black, who, while walking, had his arm pulled back by Bulma, who did all she could to stop him from walking, she was literally pulling her body weight down for that. It was an amusing sight. Especially when he lifted his arm, lifting Bulma as well, and looked at Vegeta, ''A little help please?'', the prince of all saiyans went to them, and picked a growling Bulma up and walked back to the couch. ''Thanks'', He said rubbing his sore arm.
They sighed, and looked at the others, Goku was forcing a smile, Beerus and Whis were eyeing them, Vegeta... well, Vegeta, and Trunks, was refusing to make eye contact with them. It was so awkward. They looked at each other and nodded, then went in front of Beerus. Black started, ''I am not going to appologise.'', and for a moment he turned his head towards Trunks, who was still not looking at him, ''Because I know that what I did is unforgivable.'', then he turned his head back at Beerus, ''And I am not going to ask for mercy, because I know that we'll be punished for what we did.'', ''And we deserve it. This is why, we want to ask you, to finish us once and for all, Beerus sama.'', Zamasu finished, at that Trunks lifted his head, though he still hadn't looked at them.
''Wait, hold on a sec.'', Goku tried but Beerus got up, ''You really believe you deserve such kindness? Feh, I was going to destroy you for your crimes anyway. You don't deserve to live.'', He lifted his palm in front of them, their expression didn't change as Beerus glared. But right before he could say something, Trunks appeared between them, ''Wait, Beerus sama, please.'', Zamasu and Black's eyes got impossible wide, Beerus looked at him and asked, ''You still hadn't answered my question Trunks kun.'', he lowered his arm and held them both behind his back. ''I just... couldn't bring myself to do it.'', he said truthfully, lowering his gaze, ''Hm. Well then, I trust you know what you're doing.'', then he put his arms behind his head and yawned, ''Let's go Whis. We'll come by tomorrow to Bulma.'', Whis smiled at everyone and said ''Thank you for dinner. Have a good night.'', and they left in an arrow light, disappearing into the night sky.
After the light vanished fully, Trunks bowed, and then, when he wanted to leave, he felt his arm being grabbed, ''What the hell was that?! Why did you do that?! The hell is wrong with you Trunks-'', Black didn't have time to finish the sentence because he was met by a punch in the face. He stood there a moment processing only after 10 seconds what happened, then asked ''What the heck?! What was that for?!'', Trunks glared at him and answered ''What do you mean 'what was that for'? Do I need a reason to punch you?'', ''Fair point, but I know that you did it with a reason!'', ''Yeah, 'cause you know me so well don't you?'', Trunks said rolling his eyes.
''Well I do know how you look like when you're pissed!'', He said slapping his hand in the air, narrowly missing Trunk's face, making his blue hair ruffle in the air, shocking him, but still not stopping his glare. ''Now tell me why did you saved us, again?! It was extremely, eminently, to the highest degree unnecessary! Why didn't you let me-'', ''Why can't you be grateful like a normal person?!'', ''WHY CAN'T YOU GIVE ANSWERS DIRECTLY?!'', ''WHY DO I HAVE TO ANSWER YOU?!'', they literally started screaming into each other's faces.
The others were looking nervously at the 2, Zamasu sweat dropped and said ''Uh...I'm here t-'', both Black and Trunks turned to him and yelled ''SHUT UP ZAMASU!''. He swallowed and shut up.
Trunks turned towards Black again and inhaled, ''Ok listen, we met like a year or so ago, we fought, you turn into Rosé, then Zamasu shows up, after that we keep fighting until Gowasu comes and tell us his plan, and you mean to tell me that you didn't know the second part of it and that he was using you all along, and that you want to be punished for your 'sins'-'', He said rolling his eyes at the word 'sins', and continued, not breathing, ''-because you had no idea what sick mind did Gowasu had, and that you didn't even hated humans from the very beginning!'', He stopped to take a breath, then continued, and while he continued Vegeta walked to him, grabbed his arm with both his hands and went for the door, ''Gowasu was the one who hated us! You have been manipulated! It's just like Gowasu was the director and you played a role! A ROLE! And you guys suddenly want to die like nothing mattered at all, 'Oh bummer, guess I'll die!', This is preposterously ridiculous and and atrocity to the law of nature!'', Trunks gestured with his free hand while he was being dragged outside the room with difficulty.
''And what's with the ''extremely, eminently, to the highest degree unnecessary.''?! It's the same thing, you made a triple pleonasm!'', Vegeta finally managed to get him out of the room. They heard a growl, and some sort of angry scream, only that even the scream sounded like an annoyed growl, then Trunks came in the room, his father sweat dropped, holding him by the stomach with both hands, Trunks pointed at Black, ''You know what?! FUCK YOU! AAAAAH!'', He was lifted off the ground in the bear hug and taken out of the room again.
After a silent, awkward moment, ''THAT WASN'T A TRIPLE PLEONASM! I WAS STRONGLY TRYING TO POINT OUT WHAT I MEANT!!!'', yelled Black.
''... Well... That went we-'', ''Don't even try Son kun.'', Bulma interrupted Goku, then turned towards the other 2 ''You know? Trunks is right. You can't just give up on life like that.'', Zamasu sighed and turned towards her ''We don't want to die. But whether if we fight or run, Zeno sama will find out about us and then he will destroy us. It's the same thing, I don't see the point in running away.''.
''But Gowasu manipulated you. Both of you.'', Goku joined in, ''To be honest, I hadn't changed my opinion in humanity one bit. I still believe you as bad as you are. Just because we decided to face Beerus doesn't mean we had a change of heart.'', Zamasu frowned. ''I don't give 2 shits about what you think.'', ''Bulma!'', ''It's not like your opinion matters. Humans are bad I admit it. They are the worst possible things out there.'', She gestured with her hand, ''But that doesn't mean that there aren't good people, or that we're not trying to be better!'', Zamasu sweat dropped but glared and told her ''You are starting out wars without any reason!'', ''Actually there is always a reason behind anything. Even behind why Trunks saved you. Even I held back on that decision.'', Goku said in a serious manner, then Bulma said ''Wars? This is all you can come up with?'', ''Bulma, no.'', ''Oh shut up Goku!''.
She looked back at Zamasu ''You didn't even inform yourself well enough did you? Or perhaps Gowasu showed you one bad thing and now you follow him like a lost puppy.'', Black clenched his fist which was already trembling, but never turned towards the arguing people, ''Let me at least tell you why we are so bad! Murder, stealing, terrorism, violence, cybercrime, trafficking, fraud, drugs, kidnapping, manipulation, and I am not going to count the seven deadly sins!'', She counted on her fingers as she glared at Zamasu, who was staring at her in surprise. But then Bulma told him ''But you know what? Where is dark, there is also light! This is an equilibrium of good and bad. There is no good without bad and bad without good. There are bad people, yes, but there is the exact same number of good people who are fighting those bad ones.'', hearing this, Black remembered of an image, with Trunks pointing his sword at him, he clenched his jaw. ''Let me prove it to you. Rescuing animals or other people, helping the environment, donating, loving, showing kindness, helping others, encouraging the good side, compassion, trust, sharing hope! Do you see that I did the exact same number to the bad ones? And these are only a few.'', Bulma glared at the quiet kaioshin.
Zamasu looked shocked at her, not wanting to admit that she was right, he never tried to see them differently, but... he shook his head and clenched his fists ''And what do you want me to do?! It's my fault, I admit it! But I didn't know!'', ''You never tried to consider it?!'', Bulma asked disappointed, ''I was told that there was no consideration! Gowasu-'', ''ENOUGH!'', Black Goku suddenly turned to them, making both Zamasu and Bulma jump, Goku and Piccolo turned their attention to him as well, ''All of you, enough! It doesn't matter anymore! It doesn't matter if we considered it or not! We already went with it and never gave it one fucking thought! we killed almost the entire human race, but never thought a second time, and now we are in this situation because of it. Because of me!'', He placed his hand over his chest, Zamasu wanted to say something but he interrupted the kai, ''None of it would've happened, and I mean NONE of it, if I at least had a second thought that day! And I know it! And so do you.'', He finished, breathing hard through his nostrils, he turned around and went over the terrace, ''Where are you going? What do you wanna do?'', Zamasu asked going after him ''Leave me alone!'', Black growled, his brother stopped but still looked at him, the fake saiyan took in a deep breath and let it out, then added ''We've done enough. What else is there to say Zamasu?'', the kai looked at him, then lowered his gaze, Black clenched his fists and flew off into the distance.
''Can you believe the nerve of that pinkish bastard? Not only did he ignore what had happened up until now, but then suddenly deciding to go along with it and go die, ''Oh nooo! I was lied I feel so betrayed, I'm gonna go ask the God of Destruction to Hakai me, Zamasu do you wanna come too?'', Trunks spoke as he was walking with his father who was just nodding and listening to him, waiting for his usually very calm son who never used bad language words to let it all out. Some times he zoomed out and looked away, this has gone one for a while.
Now they were at a donut store, enjoying a soda, while Trunks continued ''And he was not the only bully, when I was 10...''.
35 minutes later:
''And I was like, I can sit upside down in the air, your argument is invalid.'', Trunks said as he was floating upside down in the air with a cross legged position. Vegeta took a deep slurp of his soda. No one ever listened to him and it was visible, either that or Trunks didn't want to let the chance of talking about his problems (with his dad) pass.
2 hours later:
They were walking on their way home, as Trunks gestured with his hands ''And I keep having these weird dreams about a very muscular and very tall bald guy with a moustache laughing and making fun at my size. He always picks me up like I weight nothing and says that 'You look so much like your father, you are a shortie just like him.', and also says that all saiyans are big, only I am a pint sized walking fruit. Then laughs at me. Who even is that?!'', Trunks finishes in one breath, ''Goddamn it Nappa.'', Vegeta muttered, ''What was that?'', ''Nothing.'', Vegeta quickly said, and added ''Continue.'', ''Actually that was all. Thank you for listening father.'', He said as they walked in the building. ''That's all? Are you sure? I feel surprisingly kind to listen tonight.'', ''Yes. I'm sure.'', They entered the room they left, only to find Goku, Piccolo, Zamasu and a very annoyed Bulma.
''How can you blow up a phone by only touching it?!'', Bulma growled at Zamasu as all of their faces were scorched, ''I don't know!'', Zamasu sad, his hand that was holding the phone still in the air, only empty, a little fire light up on his white hair. ''Ask Goku.'', Piccolo said finding a phone on the couch, ''OOOPS! My bad, I think I gave Zamasu something else Bulma.'', the blue haired woman's face paled ''My self destruct touch screen camouflage bomb?! I've been working on it for 3 months!''.
''Umm...'', Trunks murmured, and Vegeta cleared his throat. ''Where is Black?'', Zamasu sighed, ''He left a while ago.'', then everyone looked behind, they only felt a ki disappearing in the distance, ''Where is Trunks?''.

''Black?'', Trunks called after the man, looking in a direction he could sense the ki. He was in the canyon his father and Goku had fought the first time they met. How strange. He heard a voice, and looked up at one of the rocks, ''Let me guess... You came here to remind me how stupid I was for trusting Gowasu blindly. You probably already scolded Zamasu too.'', Black said nonchalantly ''If this is about earlier, then no. It's not, I just needed to get that off my chest. You should try it too.'', ''Getting things off my chest?'', ''Um, yeah.'', ''I'm not the one with temper issues.'', He smirked looking down at him, ''Wh- I don't have temper issues!'', ''You came back violently and yelled 'fuck you', all the while you were held by your father.'', ''Well, I do have reasons to be angry.'', ''Oh, yeah, I killed almost the entire human race. Forgot about that. Sorry.'', Black turned away, speaking sarcastically the last few words. Trunks gro
