*coughs* I'm sick AGAIN! Great… *deep sigh*
First off for everyone who reviewed take you Pan cookie. I'm in this course called "Food and Nutrition" and we had to make cookies. Ours was a disaster 'cause some girl put a ¼ cup of salt instead of a ¼ tablespoon. I know that wasn't me…. I'm not that stupid!! SO anyways if we wanted a mark we have to make our own at home. And I say mine was the best!! So I really make cookies if ya wanted to know. Now I wait for icing so I can make a new batch this week!!
Comments back to the reviewers! (uhhh….I know I should reply to more…but half of them are marked as "Xing@fanfiction.net". I know xing couldn't possibly read this since it's---er---it's just messed!!)
Raven Pan: I'm happy your proud!! Ehehehe of Yamcha!! Now you know why I like him!! ^^
Ancient-saeki: Thanks *blushes* Oh you reminded me of something! I'll be sure to type up my upcoming stuff after I respond to reviewers! But if you still want I'll e-mail you when they come out!!
Cha3ka: I don't know why he never gets
a girl… but wouldn't that cat thing (Puar I think) get jealous….ehehehe…. I
made up in my head that they have something going on since they're always
together. *wink wink* Anywho, thanks for the review!
Majn Gohan: Thanks!! I think this ending is better!!
Android 71: *hugs back* THANKIES!!
Z: MWahahhahaha!! IT's my job! What can I say? Thanks for the compliments!!
Seems like everyone has respect for Yamcha now, huh? I guess I can't use him in
my other other other other story…it'll just ruin him for you all!! *reads last
couple of lines of your review and blushes madly* THANKS! I don't think I'm a
great writer…because I'm still not satisfied of what I could do… *shrugs* "When
you reach that highest point of your 'career' that's when you know it's over"
(I got that from some anime show…probably Gravitation) But it's true!! Anyways
hope you enjoy my cookies!!
FloralBalckMoon: *falls over* Well Yamcha loves Videl and was taken back when he saw her cry. I guess I should have explained that… From my experience guys hate it when girls cry…and I guess it triggered something in Yamcha. He knew that she didn't love him—so he understood. It's that he was pissed I guess in the beginning when she didn't walk down the aisle. *shrugs* Heh. I'm just the author what can I do? Besides it was original and I never seen this done before… And the collaborate thing…ehehe… we will see… that reminds me… I have to do my 40 hrs. of community service. *sweat drops* Thanks a lot!!
VideliGohan: Thanks for the 'cheats'. I didn't have time to play it yet…because I'm lazy and sick…and spend a lot of time watching anime stuff on the PC. -.-' Thanks for the review!!
Ehehehe thanks… You know I wouldn't get Gohan and Videl together THAT easily…so
obviously I done it the most…er… what's the word…awkward way?? *grins* More
like evil to me!!
Okay doky… since I'm not going to write a note in the end (because it'll ruin the 'effect') I'm going to list my upcoming vrap for you guys to read….if ya bored or just love my stuff…
**The Sound of Pleasure: Yeah, it certainly has an interesting name. It's G/CC though…for many purposes… though I should have made it V/B. *shrugs* It's a very light fic. Not melodramatic like this one. It's actually a big ha-ha-ha to me. Chapters are very short so it should take me a week to upload the whole thing. Not my greatest stuff…just a little humour for me… More like quenching that little nag to write it… I'm not sure when I'm planning to upload it…but it's gong to be before any other new story.
**Tainted Blood: G/V. Something surprising happens when Gohan bites Videl! It's rated R for obvious reasons. Again, not to melodramatic like SHTMH, but a good read (especially the first chapter—if you perverted that is…) I'm not finished typing the whole thing because I'm stuck for the ending, but most of the chapters are short which means that I'll update more frequently (if you want)…
**Untitled: It's based on the movie called "Bollywood Hollywood". It's a deep, lengthy story. It's probably going to be kind of melodramatic. I only finished the first chapter…and started the second, so it'll be a long time (at least half a month) before anyone can read this. A little summary though: Saiyans and Humans co-exist on Earth for special reasons. With different races living on the same planet, it's no wonder that the future generations are falling for someone else of a different race. What happens when our favourite demi-Saiyan falls for an Earthling? What happens when a certain Saiyan mother isn't too happy with it? (btw Chichi is Saiyan in my fic). A lot of things is bound to stir up. G/V. Definte A/U.
And then there's Unforgettable. I'm going to rename it again, but the Unforgettable part is still there. Another chapter is going to be uploaded on next Sunday! It's a shame that none of you (except wind, VideliGohan, etc.) never read it. *frowns*
Now on with the chapter!
This chapter is the last chapter that I will be writing for this story "Something Happens to My Heart." I dedicate this to all who read it from start to finish. I dedicate it to those who had patience with me every week to update. I dedicate it to those who found time out to review and encourage me. I dedicate this to those who thoroughly enjoyed this story as much as I have. And I even dedicate this to those who ate my cookies! I can't thank you enough.
Now on to the final chapter, even though it's sad that this is the final chapter. Enjoy! And leave me a nice review!! I put in so much hard work to make this chapter very nice and sweet just for you. Besides I'd really like to know who read the whole story! (Yeah, it's for my sanity)
Disclaimer: I sadly don't own Dragonball or any of its contents (except for the action figures) and I do not own Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (storyline) or any song lyrics mentioned throughout this fic.
Something Happens in My Heart
Written by Goku's Daughter
Chapter Fourteen: Something Still Happens to My Heart
Oh what should I do?
Something just happens
The grass was lush and green and the skies were bright and blue. The birds even sang a tune as if they knew that today was a joyous occasion.
To Goten it was. It was very much indeed a joyous and special occasion.
His smile broadened as he dusted off his dark, black tux. Then he proceeded to walk around the richly flowered land, closely inspecting the area for any imperfections. It was very crucial that this day must be perfect. Goten vowed to himself that he live up to his solemn promise.
A red velvet carpet was rolled down the center of the area, making a visible pathway to the small platform. Now this area that we speak off, it wasn't too large, yet it wasn't too small. It was big enough to contain twenty rows of benches. It was big enough to contain over five thousand dollars worth of flowers and that was in U.S. currency. When Goten would turn to the sides, he would see a serene pattern of wild flowers. When he looked back he could see a vast land, just pure, lush and untouched. Nevertheless, there were pillars around to mark the boundaries of this special ceremony. And as expected there were strings of flowers connected from one pillar to another. It was fabulous, Goten noted to himself as he walked around. Then the teen noticed the archway. It was set at the beginning of the red velvet pathway, intertwined with white and red roses. Those colours, red and white, were the main colour scheme, and Goten again noted that it was a very good choice. The whole atmosphere was wonderful, as if everything just blended together, making the area more than serene, attractive and appealing. This was after all Goten's brother's dream wedding.
Goten's eyes twinkled. It was Gohan's wedding and it was to Videl. Goten grinned. Not Yamcha and Videl but Gohan and Videl. Goten couldn't help but feel so happy when he thought that over and over in his mind.
But it wasn't like Goten hated Yamcha. He wasn't stupid or anything. The scar-faced man just decided to be naïve for a while until he could confirm his theory. That was on his wedding, which was a wedding that didn't wed anyone. Gohan, Videl, and Goten were all in debt for Yamcha. The scar-faced man gave Gohan and Videl a chance. A chance that was forged away for so many years ago…
"Gooo-TEN!! EEElllooo!!" Trunks called from far away while he walked to his best friend.
Goten blinked for a moment and was soon out of his trance. When he looked up he saw Trunks staring at him with a weird look. "What?"
Trunks sneered at Goten, "You're so damn happy Goten and I'm wondering how can you smile for such a long time?"
This time Goten gave him a look. Trunks knew what it meant.
"You know I got nothing from this."
Goten almost choked when Trunks said that. Before he could respond, a familiar voice spoke from behind.
"Hey Trunks I kind of have bad news for you," his mother proclaimed with her hands on her hips, and her face didn't lacked a smile.
Trunks turned his head back at Bulma, who wore a light satin blue dress, matching her hair colour and eyes. "Why? What happened now?" Trunks couldn't possibly think what was wrong now…especially when his mother help set up this wedding.
"You know how you're supposed to walk down the aisle with a bridesmaid since you're one of the ushers…"
"Well she's sick."
Goten sweat dropped.
She quickly continued, "But luckily I found thee perfect bridesmaid for you." When Bulma moved from to the side, there stood Lita in a pastel red bridesmaid dress, holding of course a bouquet.
Goten and Trunks mouths involuntarily hanged opened. They noticed how natural yet how sexy she looked with her hair curled. Half of it hung up, while some hung down. It was a similar style to the bride at the first wedding, except this hair style wasn't overdone or over the top. It matched perfectly with her tightly fitting outfit, with the frills on the spaghetti straps and on the bottom rim of the dress, which ended a centimeter above her knee. Lita almost looked Spanish…and that was a flattering remark.
Bulma noticed the boys' stare and began to giggle. Then with a small wave of her hand she said, "Okay, I'll leave you three alone. I have to get Videl ready."
When Trunks saw his mother leave, he finally blinked. "You…you…" He didn't know what to say.
She made a small smile. "Yes, me?" She gave him a mocking smile that made him fume.
"You're related to Videl?" Goten asked in a somber tone. For some reason he didn't seem to be surprised.
"Uhhh…yeah…how do you think I get away with everything?!?! She is my cousin…on my mom's side that is." That explains why she isn't ugly…like Hercule…
"And you never told us!" Trunks snapped.
Goten glanced at Trunks a bit wide eye before saying, "Why weren't you at the other wedding?
She was able to ignore the rudeness of Trunks question. "To answer Goten's question, I was sick. As for you Trunks," she fully faced him with a vicious smile, "You'd expect more from me," she spat back at Trunks with an equal bitter tone.
Goten knew he should back away. He could just feel it in his bones that they were going to fight…again…as usual.
Instead, Trunks unusually laughed. The glitter in his blue eyes made it clear that he found her amusing and interesting enough for him to actually keep some appeal into. "I never expected anything from you."
Her eyebrows furrowed for a moment before a smirk replaced her smile. "Don't provoke me Trunks."
A lavender eyebrow rose up mockingly. "And what are you going to do?"
"You sure you want to see it?"
He nodded with a competitive smile.
With a wicked smile on her face, her hand caught onto Goten's but her eyes never left Trunks. Goten made a small yelp as the raven-haired girl pulled Goten closer to her and ultimately gave him a kiss. A soft, caressing kiss on the cheek. It was nothing to be concerned about.
However Trunks thought otherwise as his jaw hung down in great disbelief. "How—you—" A part of him wanted to call her a bitch, but at the moment he was at a loss of words. This hit him so hard and he didn't know why it was affecting him so much. He hated to feel so weak…to her.
Of course Trunks was.
Goten was scared…more scared of Trunks answer.
The bridesmaid backed away, turned her head to the side, looking uninterested but was clearly waiting for an answer.
Goten also backed away.
"You're cruel," he replied in a dark voice. For some reason he became very cold.
Her head shot back at him. "Ha! You talk of cruelty! You…you—" She was silenced by Trunks hard, hungry kiss. He was even more pleased how she responded back to him, with equal hunger. He wouldn't expect less.
Goten just looked dumbfounded.
Trunks then broke free when they were both out of breath. "I find the cruelty appealing. I find you very appealing." The lavender boy gave her one hard look before letting her go and walked away.
Lita blinked for at least five minutes and then turned to Goten. "What just happened?" she asked, as she looked a bit dazed.
Goten grinned at her, trying not to laugh. "Well it looks like that demi-Saiyan has a weakness!"
She still looked at him with unbelief.
"It's you. I think he loves you…"
Slowly, yet surely, a smile had found a way on her coloured lips. Then they both laughed. Silently, Goten thought, "Looks like Trunks got something out of this after all." And Goten got his wonderful brother back.
Goten, the best man, stood beside the groom with a huge smile that was quite comparable to his brother. Goten could tell that his brother felt like a thousand bucks. Actually he probably felt even more as they watched the bride walk down the carpeted aisle.
Obviously she wore a gown, but the dress was different from her first wedding. She actually chose this dress out, rather than her mother. However her dress was a bit off-white…and a bit powdery pink, since some wouldn't consider her to be 'pure'. Her veil was much transparent to her last dress and her face wasn't painted with so much makeup. She liked being natural. Gohan liked her natural.
She kept her hair straight but she let her mother hire a hair stylist to fix it up very nicely. Her mother and Bulma also teamed up to buy Videl new jewelry, but Gohan wouldn't have it. He didn't want them to spend so much on her. He would rather do that. And he did.
Videl wore a much lighter, simpler yet more beautiful necklace than what she wore last time. She personally liked it better this way. The bangles on wrists were also much simpler but again, she liked it better. This bride wasn't too fond being 'over-the-top'. She just wanted to get married…to Gohan… with style of her preference.
Each step she moved forward, she was closer to him and her goal. A smile was easily placed on her face as she untangled her arm from her father when she reached the Priest and to the groom. She made a small sigh of relief that she didn't slip on any flower petals. It was also out of relief because she didn't see abundant flashes of light. Videl silently thanked her father for banning the press and paparazzi from this wedding. This time they hired a private photographer and cameraman. And no, it wasn't the perverted photographer from the camp.
Gohan faced his bride and immediately tangled his fingers with her own. The Priest began to speak to him and to the whole congregation. Gohan's gaze couldn't quite peel off Videl.
Then it was silent. Gohan hadn't realized that he zoned out most of the time, but he knew that he was supposed to do something now. The giggle that Videl let out made his lips turn into a goofy smile.
"Vows…stupid." Goten and Gohan heard Trunks whisper. Goten turned at Trunks with a small smile. Trunks couldn't hide that he was too caught up with this whole 'wedding' thing. It was even more surprising that Lita made up with Trunks, which made Trunks a happier person.
Gohan silently thanked his 'younger brother' as he turned back to Videl, who was laughing quietly under her veil. He just squeezed her hand tighter to make her be quiet. When she did, he moved closer to her, looked down and vowed, "I, Son Gohan, take you, Satan Videl, to be my wife, my partner in life and my one true love. I will cherish our friendship and love you today, tomorrow and forever. I will trust you and honour you. I will laugh with you and cry with you. I will love you faithfully through the best and the worst, through the difficult and the easy. What may come I will always be there as I have given you my hand to hold. So I give you my life to keep. So help me Kami."
Dende beamed. And Piccolo made a real smile for Gohan's newfound happiness. The Namek knew very well that he chose well. And yes, they both had front row seats!
The Priest said some more stuff, stuff that the bride didn't care for at the moment, but when it became silent once again, Videl knew that it was her turn to speak her vows. "I, Satan Videl, take you, Son Gohan, to be my husband, my partner in life and my one true love. I will cherish our friendship and love you today, tomorrow and forever. I will trust you and honour you. I will laugh with you and cry with you. I will love you faithfully through the best and the worst, through the difficult and the easy. What may come I will always be there as I have given you my hand to hold. So I give you my life to keep. So help me Kami." For some reason the bride and groom had a difficult time paying attention to the Priest.
Gohan stared at Videl, noticing her posture and the possessive, hard hold on his hands. He knew what else was expected as he and Videl said in unison, "Entreat me not to leave you, or to return from following after you. For where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God will be my God. And where you die, I will die and there I will be buried. May Kami do with me and more if anything but death parts you from me."
Videl then eyed the priest, expecting him to say something.
The Priest smiled, while fixing his thin-framed glasses. "Kami calls you into union with him and with one another. I ask you now in the presence of Kami and this congregation to declare your intent."
He turned to Gohan. "Will you have this woman to be your wife, to live together in a holy marriage? Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, be faithful to her as long as you both shall live?"
Gohan couldn't help but smile. Simply, he stated, "I will."
The Priest then turned to Videl. He couldn't help but notice the happy looks on the couple's faces. At their love the Priest's smile broadened. He then continued, "Will you have this man to be your husband, to live together in a holy marriage? Will you love him, comfort him, honor and keep him in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, be faithful to him as long as you both shall live?"
Videl's eyes were fixated on the man in front of her as she responded with a simply, yet meaningful, "I will."
Turning to the groom, the Priest said, "Rings?"
The little, cute ring bearer, who was no more than five, handed his pillow down to Goten. When the teen had it in his possession, he detached both rings and handed them to Gohan.
Gohan held Videl's golden, diamond ring between his fingers and said, "Videl, with this ring, I thee wed." Gohan was grateful that she didn't wear gloves while his slipped the ring onto Videl's fourth finger. He gave her the other.
Videl took in a deep breath and said, "Gohan, with this ring, I thee wed." And as expected she slid on his golden ring on her groom's fourth finger.
Priest continued, "As you have consented together to be bound to one another in
lawful marriage. You have made special promises to each other which have been
symbolized but the joining of hands, taking vows and by the giving of ring.
By the power invested in me, according to the laws of Japan, I now pronounce you to be husband and wife.
You may kiss the bride."
This was the part that Gohan was patiently waiting for. Slowly he untangled his fingers from the bride's and proceeded to lift her veil. When he finally saw her face, he breathed a sigh of relief. The last thing he'd want was to marry the wrong girl.
Videl looked up at Gohan innocently as she watched him lick his lips. She became passive as he cupped her face and softly brushed his lips over hers. When he was going to let go, she quickly gripped onto his arms and kissed him back, not wanting him to let go. Every time they kissed there was just something magical in it, which they both wanted to savour in every moment. Involuntarily they had to break free. The Priest announced them "Mr and Mrs. Son Gohan."
Yamcha sat casually in the fourth row and watched their second kiss. He was for a moment jealous, but ultimately happy. Of course he was sad that Videl couldn't be his, but he was happy for her…and Gohan, that they were happy…together. The veteran fighter was so amazed that they were able to hide this from him…hide this away from everyone and was willing to sacrifice their love for his own happiness. Wow, what friends he had… He couldn't feel happier for his friends. Yamcha then thought who their angel could be…
Goten. It must have been him. Without him, Videl would be months married to Yamcha and Gohan would just be the same old, boring brother/father/mother. Goten smiled at that thought as he let a single tear roll down face. Soon he soon began to clap his hands as others would follow. Smiling greatly, he was able to tear his eyes away from the couple as something caught his eyes.
"Mother?" he whispered softly. Like a goddess that she was, he couldn't miss seeing her. She was smiling at him, at Gohan and at Videl, looking very pleased in her phantom like form. Her spirit gracefully walked around the opened-area finally stopping by a nearby column, giving Goten two thumbs up. Goten took in a big breath, giving his mother two thumbs up. She smiled at her sons, letting her eyes twinkle. Then in a soft fade, she disappeared. Goten made a warm smile. For once, he was really happy. Not only he reunited his brother and Videl, he made them happy. He also made his mother happy. Blinking quickly, what was left of his tears had spilled on his face. Now there was nothing else to cry over.
Gohan and Videl made their way down the aisle when Goten called their name.
He found that his brother was able to tear his eyes away from his new wife. Feeling the warmth of his brother's smile, Goten ran towards Gohan and was never hesitant to give him a hard hug. Once released, he turned to Videl, giving her a short sweet peck on the cheek. Things were going to be different now. Goten just knew it…His mother's wishes were fulfilled…
Trunks found a girlfriend…
Gohan and Videl were finally happy…
And even Goten was happy…
Things were different now…
Joyful, everyone began the celebration. Holding her possessively close to him, Gohan watched lovingly at his life partner, finding her to look right back at him. He only smiled at her. His mother was right, 'love is friendship'. That's why their love worked. Not only were they physically attracted, their personality, character, persona, what ever you want to call it, was…appealing. Maybe that's why they were best friends since the very beginning.
They both looked on their finger and smiled at the ring. It was beautiful (just like this day) and they matched. But even if there wasn't a ring on their finger to prove their love for each other, the claim in their hearts was all that they needed.
Gohan sat back against the cushion in the limo as Videl cuddled against him, resting her head on his chest. He was finally happy as this was just the beginning of his life with her. Gohan wouldn't have it any other way. Feeling that heavy thump in his heart made it even more worthwhile.
He realized that Videl too was right, something just happens. Something happens to him when he's with her, and he liked it. Something happened to his heart when she was with him right now. Videl couldn't agree more because she felt the same way.
Now my heart neither is awake, nor sleeps,
Oh, what should I do?
Something just happens
As they rode off to the reception, they, for some reason, predicted that fifteen years later (and beyond) their love wouldn't extinguish. Even as they grow old together that heavy thump in their chests wouldn't diminish. Gohan and Videl both had a strong feeling that something will still happen to their hearts.
