The Trust Pact Epilogue: Following Your Heart

Regular POV

Gohan nervously wiped his hands on his pants as he entered his room. Videl was sitting on her bed, reading a book.

"Hey Videl?" Gohan said, getting her attention.

She looked up and said, "Yeah, Gohan?"

"There might be something I haven't told you yet…" Gohan said.

"You have more secrets?" Videl asked with a grin. Gohan sighed in relief, thinking she would be mad at him for not telling him everything before.

"Yeah…kinda…It's something I didn't figure out until this weekend," Gohan began. Sitting down on the edge of his bed, he drew a deep breath. "Ever since I met you, I knew there was something about you that I really liked…I don't know if it was your strong will, or your wit, or what…but whatever it was, I knew I liked it. I…I had a crush on you. But now…I think I lo…no, I know...I love you."

Videl's breath caught in her throat as she tried to think of something to say.

"I wanted to know," Gohan began, looking at the floor, "if maybe, just maybe, you felt something-anything, for me?"

"Gohan…I…" Videl began, but couldn't continue.

Gohan interpreted her silence as not feeling the same way, so he stood up and said, "I understand." He turned and walked to the door. He stopped when he felt Videl's hand grab his.

"Gohan," Videl said, waiting for him to face her. When he did, she said, "I love you, too."

"Really?" Gohan asked.

"Yes," Videl replied. She threw her arms around his neck and kissed him. Gohan wrapped his arms around her waist, gratefully accepting it.

When they broke it off, Videl said, "Thank you, Gohan."

"For what?" the demi-Saiyan asked.

"For letting me earn your trust," Videl replied.

Gohan kissed his girlfriend and said, "I was just following my heart."


A/N: So, that's it! Short, I know, but I wanted to do a short fic for once.

I should be updating 'Never Get A Saiyan Mad' sometime soon. And, hopefully, I won't be MIA for a year again.
