Sun, Sun, Please Come Back...
Oh, such a lovely day it was! The graduates of this year rejoiced as they tossed their black square like graduation hats into the air. Oh, how these days had passed and how stressful they had been. It had been quite an eventful year! I mean... let's start from the beginning of how this story starts... Yeah, the beginning... there was once a happy couple that lived in a wooden cottage, which had a newborn son named Goha-
Too far back...
Let's see... oh yes, Gohan's crazy year at a public high school.
We last found our favorite student living hell on earth... or at least the closest thing to it with all his secrets being revealed. Little did he know... during this time, he would become bonded with a certain girl, whose father stole Gohan's credit for defeating Cell. Remember him?
Yeah... that guy.
Anyways, let's go to the present time to our hero of the story.
Gohan smiled as he tightly hugged his girlfriend; a joyous smile was on his lips. Oh, how wonderful it felt to finally finish the schooling his mother always pushed him to have. It very much felt as a great accomplishment that only a select few could master; he was one of the few. Not only that...
He released his girlfriend soon to gaze in her bright blue eyes. A joy could obviously be seen in them; partially for the graduation of school, but also for being with the one she loved.
Yes, it was news all over the school and among the seniors. The two did seem to have a true love, which grew as the days passed. The seniors had, however, waited for the day that the two would announce an engagement. But there were those few students who created voodoo dolls of either Gohan or Videl forever stabbing it with small sewing needles, knives, forks, well...pointy objects in general... And there were those girls who had ripped apart their pictures and totally destroyed their shrines of Gohan. But that's a whole nother matter that we don't want to get into.
Videl laughed as she rammed her elbow into the ribs of her boyfriend. "You seem excited about this whole graduation thing."
Gohan also laughed, mainly because he couldn't feel the pain in the nudge that Videl had intended to put on him. It was still quite strange; no matter how in love they were, they still tried to find ways to pick on each other. For instance, the other day Videl had slept over at Gohan's home (after having to study for their final tests); and for those who think something happened... nothing did. Chichi and Goku were in the same room talking and planning about something secretly. Well... that's what Goku said when Videl and Gohan became curious to why and how the husband and wife could remain so quiet for a reasonable amount of time. And when it came to bedtime, Videl plopped out a cot, in request of her father, and used that to sleep on (instead of sleeping in the same bed sharing the warmth with Gohan). But that's beside the point.
Before the sun had risen, Videl woke also disturbing Goten's dream of a mountain of ice cream and cookies as she nudged him from slumber. She had pulled out numerous capsules; it so happened to carry a saiyan's worst enemy... well, for the morning hours that is. A saiyan usually wished to keep their sleep, or get as much of it as they could. The objects in the capsules were so frightening... Goten was very hesitant to even help because of his fear of these things.
What? Enough with the suspicion? Okay, fine.
I'm speaking of alarm clocks. She had alarm clocks in these capsules, a total of three hundred to be exact.
Her evil plan had been for her to put an alarm clock beside his bed (nothing too out of the ordinary), and when he destroyed that one seconds after it started making its obnoxious ring, another would go off. Well... that would happen till about the third one was destroyed; then the fun would start.
It turned out that all 297 alarm clocks were set up in the room; some were hung up my strings while others were set on flat surfaces completely filling the room. Anyways,the clocksrang in unison; the ringing chorused down the halls of the home waking everything in a three-mile radius. Videl and Goten made sure to be in West City by the time all the alarm clocks went off. They didn't get to see Gohan's live reaction to the harmless prank, but they did get it on a camera they cleverly hid under some clothing.
Gohan forgave her and Goten after he 'tossed'them into a near by ocean.
But all's in the past... and these jokes they played on each other helped to bring them closer than ever. Now all they could think of was each other and what lied ahead in their new path... it's a little something called life.
Gohan held her hand with a tight grasp while gazing lovingly into her eyes.
The teens blinked before turning their heads to the voice.
Videl smiled, as did Gohan when a group of familiar faces came forward.
Goku, with his happy-go-lucky grin, laughed as he patted his son's shoulder. "I am so proud of you Gohan!" And the saiyan turned to the hybrid's mate, "And I'm proud of you too Videl!"
"Oh my boy!" exclaimed Chichi whipping tears from her eyes which fell down like running faucets. "I can't believe that you've finished your schooling! Oh! My baby's going to become a scholar- just as I've always wanted!"
Sweatdrops fell from the husband of this hysterical woman... as well as her son.
Gohan just laughed it off. This was a day of joy! It was a wonderful accomplishment! It was...
The hybrid saiyan's laughter died down to almost nothing as the voice rang in his ears. It was a voice he was very, very familiar with...
In turning slowly, Gohan's smile grew only bigger.
To anyone around who would have never been around the Z team... they would have just stared in fear and awe at the sight of a very muscular man who was... um... green. And with those little antennas, you can't forget the antennas.
"Piccolo!" exclaimed Gohan as he turned fully to his martial arts sensei. A look of pride was in the eyes of the Namek, "You can't seem to stop accomplishing the tasks of life while maintaining your training too."
Gohan just laughed as he rubbed the back of his head with the free hand. His other hand was still firmly grasping his girlfriend's palm. "I guess so Piccolo."
It was nice to see Piccolo deciding to watch the graduating ceremony; it truly did mean much to the hybrid saiyan- it showed that Piccolo did care much more for Gohan than they really thought.
But along with the Son's and Piccolo... there were a few more people that attended, who we might recognize, one of them being Krillin's family and Master Roshi. Needless to say some of the female graduate students were watching Eighteen kick Roshi's ass to the other side of the planet, as he went flying off into the sky only turning into a small dot. That brought a few sweatdrops.
A few other familiar faces that came to watch the graduating saiyan were Tien and Yamucha. It was unfortunate for them, however, because the girls continued to attack the two while ogling at how 'strong and handsome' they were.
Last but not least, there was one more family that had made it to the graduation. I think we can all guess who this family is.
Vegeta shoved his way though the crowd making as many threats and curses possible spewing themout of his mouth about how he would soon destroy 'weak and useless humans'; he could slowly feel himself become claustrophobic. But when he spotted Gohan, his threats subsided, and immediately he quieted down nodding to the hybrid saiyan.
Gohan waved to Vegeta in a friendly manner; as many would have known, a nod or a glance was all that you could really get out of the prideful saiyan prince. But there was one who had an opposite personality than of his father. That would be young Trunks, who cheerfully stepped into the area beside his stoic father. The young hybrid prince waved to Gohan before laughing. "Gohan! Videl" exclaimed the young lavender mane child, "You survived high school!"
Gohan and Videl looked down to the child, then to each other for an instance. An uneasy laugh was noticed from the two before they turned to the child once more. Videl kneeled down to the young saiyan, her graduation gown hitting the grassy field of the school. The graduation had taken place on the fields due to the largeness of the class and to the beauty of the day.
It was one of those days you wish lasted forever.
Videl ruffled the child's hair before smirking, "I don't see your mother around. Did she get called in to work?"
Trunks tilted his head to the side before turning to the stage. "Mom's up there." The young child of Bulma pointed over to where his mother was speaking with the principal. There was a tense pause between the two teens as they gazed to the scientist warily before Videl tiptoed up to whisper in Gohan's ear, "Should we be scared?"
Gohan looked down at her, his face in a dead serious manner as he nodded it up and down. "I think we should be scared. I mean... this IS Bulma we are talking about... who is on stage..."
Both saiyan and human looked back to the stage as horrible feedback from the microphone caught the ears of the students and spectators of the graduation. It was indeed unpleasant for the saiyans around as well as the Namek as blood started dribbling from their ears. Of course, no one really noticed this happening... but the saiyans swore that they might have lost their hearing in this horrible experience.
Bulma lightly laughed in a sheepish manner as she took the microphone in her hand, a large smile plastered on her face. One wouldn't have known if it were genuine or sly as her husband's smirks were. The only facts that are known were she was smiling; she must definitely have something up her sleeve.
"Attention graduates, friends and family of the graduates, I have some wonderful news to announce concerning two of our graduating students, Son Gohan and Satan Videl."
Mutters could be heard from the students as well as some hoots and hollers following after the comment.
The human and saiyan teens could feel their faces burning from embarrassment.
'Gohan,' thought Videl though the mental link the two held, 'Tell me again why Bulma has the right to announce that information to the class?'
Gohan's nervous chuckle was heard in the link, 'Since she feels it is her job to try and play 'match maker' with the two of us until we are wed and creating children.'
Videl rolled her eyes; of course she and her boyfriend were now familiar with Chichi and Bulma's hinting to children.Thewomenjust needed to get it though their thick skulls thatboth saiyan warrior andhuman crime fighterwouldn't consider such a thing till they were married. After THAT announcement... it seemed that everyone was pushing them together. The two did have to admit... it was quite confusing at times. 'Just wonderful.'
Bulma's smile widened even more as she noticed the confused expressions of the students (especially the confused expressions of Videl and Gohan); Bulma couldn't help but smirk. 'Perfect.' "I'm inviting everyone here to Capsule Corporation..." There were many surprised gazes and smiles in the crowd... that were... until she continued, "...in the celebration of Gohan and Videl's engagement!"
Gasps were heard all around as every eye turned to the saiyan and human mates.
Everything seemed to become still as if time stopped for the couple.
Videl's face became extremely pale...
Gohan... on the other hand had widened eyes as the shock and surprise of the unknown information processed though his mind.
And as they had done many times before, the hybrid saiyan male and female human crime fighter turned to gaze in each other's eyes... this time with an unexplained horror shining though.
They thought they had hit all the main obstacles after that storm at Gohan's house (with the villain and budding relationship) and at the senior trip to the beach...
This is where they realized the most trouble would be faced; they were already in some knee high shit. And they were scared to death knowing of what their possible fate was. They were most definitely scared of what was to come.
