Krillen had been able to rationalize a lot of things regarding his unusual classmate (as it were). Son Goku was an innocent, childish, INHUMANLY STRONG enigma. Granted, the spiky-haired boy had lived alone in the mountains since his grandfather's death—he hadn't had a great deal of human contact in that time, and he probably had to fend for himself. This would definitely account for some of it.

"Are you gonna eat that?"

But this? There was no way Krillen could rationalize it. No way, no how.

"Are you gonna eat that?"

There was no reasonable explanation as to why a child his own age could pack away enough food to feed a small city at any given meal. They were the same age, the same size…and yet Goku could eat both their weight in food, then come gallivanting back for seconds. And dessert.

"Are you gonna eat that?"

…and that constant meal-time mantra was getting really, REALLY annoying.

"Are you gonna eat that?"

"Yes, Goku!" Krillen said through his teeth, swatting Goku's hand away. The dark-haired child had been pointing at one of the items on Krillen's plate. "I am gonna eat that."

"Aww…" Goku looked disappointed, but went back to his own plate.

The meal went on in silence for a few minutes.

Then Goku pointed at something else on Krillen's plate. "Are you gonna eat that?"

PS. And thus ends my foray back into my first fandom. I'm sure it's obvious by now, but I've totally lost the knack for writing for this series. Oh well, it was still fun. Thanks for reading, all! Much love!
