American Yamani Half
A/N: Looks like this fic isn't as popular as my DBZ one, but oh well!
Here's a second chapter for you guys that ACTUALLY read this fic!
Chapter 2: The Explanation
"Basically, it all started on a summer vacation we took to China..." Steve
Yamani started his explanation. His family members, Katherine, Raymond,
and Lidia were handed robes to wear after taking hot baths. Katherine sat
down at the beautifully, furnished wooden table with everyone else, but
unlike her younger brother, she refused to smile. Crossing her arms in
dismay, she waited as her father told of their "tragic" tale. Lidia, the
mother of both Katherine and Raymond, sat down in a quiet, yet normal
manner, shoulders back, waiting patiently. Raymond as usual, smiled at the
humor he found in the story. His short black hair was wet, as well as
tangled in a mess that would take hours to fix.
"Hey Dad! Are you sure this is the right way?" Katherine questioned
the direction her father was driving.
"Of course this is the correct way, right Lidia?" Steve asked for an
agreement from his wife who sat in the seat next to him.
"I don't think so, Steve. According to this map, we're not anyway near the
Great Wall of China!" Lidia scolded her husband.
"Well, why didn't you tell me?"
"You refused to let me speak saying you knew the way!"
"Damn it! Ok! So where are we exactly?" Steve asked, still angry.
"According to this map, we're in a place called the Jusenkyo Springs."
Lidia answered, staring down at her huge map that expanded out touching the
"POP!" The sound rang in the family's ears, as the blue suburban came to a
"What was that all about?" Katherine asked. Raymond, who had been asleep
until the "POP" sound had awakened him, stared out the window seeing a
strange figure covered in black.
'Huh? Must be dreaming.' he thought as he fell back asleep.
"Ray! Wake up! A front tire just blew out!" Katherine shook her little
brother awake. She hated this trip to China. 'Why didn't we just go to
the beach like a normal family? But no! We had to go to China, and now
we're stranded in the middle of a place I had never heard of until now!'
"Hey you guys! Why don't you two come out! You may want to see this!"
Lidia tempted her children. The teenager and preteen slowly agreed as they
proceeded out of the car. 'I guess this trip can't get any worse..'
Katherine thought at the time.
"Wow! Look at all those hot springs!" Raymond pointed out as he stared in
aw at the hundreds of hot springs that covered the area. Katherine, Lidia,
and finally Steve walked toward the excited boy to see the sight he was
jumping up and down about.
"I've never seen so many hot spring in my life!" Lidia commented.
"They're just a bunch of hot springs! No big deal! Anyway we should
be.AHHH!" Katherine was pushed off the small hill that she and her family
was standing on. She fell, and splashed into a hot spring.
"Katherine!" her family screamed. Suddenly, a figure in black grabbed
Raymond, and threw him off into another spring.
"What the hell?" Steve turned around, only to come face to face with a
group of six people, dressed in black.
"You look like you need a bath! Here! Take one in the Jusenkyo springs!"
one figure teased as he kicked Steve off the cliff into another spring.
Another figure lifted Lidia with incredible strength, throwing her off into
yet another pool of water.
"That was too easy!" one figure commented.
"Um..sir. Was it necessary to push them into the springs? I mean, we
could have just killed them!" another person in black asked.
"Are you questioning my orders, Dimetri?" the leader in black said in an
"No sir! Please! Forgive me!" the scared person in black immediately
"Good. Now, replace that tire quickly and let's get out of here!" the
leader commanded, as the figures in black nodded and went to work.
"I don't think so!" a male voice rang out.
"Huh? Who was that?" one of them questioned.
"AHHH!" a figure screamed before hitting the ground.
"What was that?" the leader questioned. The figure in black turned around
to find a tall blond male, soaking wet. Worst of all, an aura emitted off
this man, growing by the second.
"You think you can just push me and my family around, then you're wrong!"
the male stated as he leaped into the air. The blonde quickly kicked a
figure in the head, sending the person to the ground instantly. Another
figure attempted to punch the blonde, but he dodged the attack easily, and
instead, counterattacked with kick in the back. Soon, more figures began
to come in from all sides, but the blonde easily evaded each move, and just
as swiftly, sent every one of those people to the ground.
Finally, all we're down "for the count" except one.
"Hey.listen. Buddy! You don't have to go all-angry on us. I mean, come
on! Look at you now! If I hadn't pushed you into the spring, you probably
wouldn't have had the strength to defeat all my men!" the guy spoke, fear
illuminating in his voice.
"Strength?" the male questioned. He took a piece of his long hair into his
hands and took a closer look at the color.
"What? How did my hair turn blonde? I thought I had black hair! And how
was I able to beat all those guys up? What's going on?" the male began to
panic. He stared down at his chest, only to grow even more scared. He
took off his shirt, and the sight of his muscular chest set the male off in
another "panic frenzy".
"Oh my gosh! How can this be happening to me? It's like.. I'm a guy!" the
Meanwhile, the figure in black took this opportunity to escape. He
sprinted out, running for his life.
"How can I become a guy? I mean, I was a girl just a few minutes ago!"
Katherine screamed. 'This can't be happening to me! Maybe this is just
some weirdo dream!'
"That is because you fell into 'Spring of Drowned Man'" the tour guide of
the Jusenkyo Springs explained. Katherine turned around to see a cubby man
with a gorilla, golden retriever, and eagle.
"These people have fallen into springs as well. This one fell into 'Spring
of Drowned Gorilla'" the tour guide pointed to the huge hairy gorilla.
"This one fell into 'Spring of Drowned Dog'" he stated as he pointed to the
"And this one fell into 'Spring of Drowned Eagle'" he pointed to the eagle,
only to have his finger bitten by the bird.
"Huh? But wait a minute! What do you mean? What do these animals have to
do with me?" the male asked, still confused.
"Allow me to explain." the tour guide stated.
"Seriously? You mean it?" Mr. Johnson almost couldn't believe the tale.
"That's cool!" Mike exclaimed.
"So.let me get this straight. When you guys get wet by cold water, you
change into a gorilla, man, eagle, and dog?" David asked. He found the
story too weird to be true.
"Unfortunately, yes. We don't know how to reverse it yet either."
Katherine answered the teenage boy's question.
"Unfortunately? What do you mean, unfortunately? I think being a dog is
cool!" Raymond smiled.
"Well, I don't see being a guy fun!" Katherine huffed.
"What? Seriously, Kat? I mean, come on! You're not just a normal guy!
You have super strength, speed, and best of all, you can kick people's
"Yes, I know, Raymond! But still, it gets weird switching genders, don't
you think?" Katherine asked.
"Actually, I think switching genders wouldn't be such a bad idea after
all." Mr. Johnson replied. Everyone else began to stare at the man oddly.
"Um.Dad..Like.would you want to see what it's like to be a girl?" Kayla
"Enough! Listen.the point is that after we managed to catch a plane back,
we found our house in rubble. We have no where else to go, so if it isn't
any trouble, can you please allow us to stay?" Steve asked, almost begging
"Why of course, Steve! You and your family can stay as long as they need
to!" Mr. Johnson replied.
"Thank you so much, Grant! Now, I think it's really embarrassing just
sitting around in your robes! We should get unpacked and get changed."
"Your right. Kids, please help the Yamanis settle in." Grant Johnson
"Yes Dad." David responded. He walked through the door along with the
others as they helped unpack the family's luggage.
"So.. what's it like being a guy?" Kayla asked. She sat on
Katherine's bed in her pink bunny pajamas. Being one of the most popular
girls at her school, she had a long history of many boyfriends within her
social life. However, never had she actually experienced 'being' a guy
before. She found Katherine's experience intriguing.
"Well.. there are some good and bad parts to it.let's leave it at that.."
Katherine answered. She sat down next to Kayla, brushing her black hair
with a neon red hairbrush. The part male and female wore purple pajamas,
the shirt showing off the words "Wanabe" in the front.
"Oh come on! Seriously! I'm a girl who just wants to know what being a
guy is like. That's all! You can tell me anything, Kat!" Kayla smiled.
"Well.. it's just.. kind of embarrassing.." Katherine desperately wanted to
get off the subject.
Luckily for her, David walked into the room.
"Hey you two! Listen, we're going to the mall tomorrow to buy school
supplies! School starts in three days anyway! You are going to Polindise
High School, right Katherine?"
"I think I am, David." Katherine answered. She turned around, refusing to
look at the teenage man. When she looked at him, he reminded her of the
event earlier. 'I guess I should forgive him. He didn't know that I would
turn into a girl..' She thought.
"What's wrong, Kat? Are you scared because David saw you naked?" Kayla
asked, almost giggling.
"Kayla! Cut it out! I didn't see anything, Katherine! Seriously! I'm
really sorry for busting in though! I didn't know about.."
"I know, David. I'm the one who should be apologizing. I didn't tell you
about my curse. I'm sorry.." Katherine said, slowly turning around to see
him in the eye.
"Oh.um.well. I'm sorry too. Listen. You two should go to bed. We'll be
going early tomorrow morning. I need to drop something off on the way to
the mall.." David explained.
"Ok, David! Now go! It's time for a girls only conversation!" Kayla
winked at her twin brother.
David smiled. He knew the meaning of his sister's wording. He turned and
walked out to his room.
Katherine stared at him, her frown turning into a smile. 'I guess he's not
a pervert after all..'
