"What the #$& happened here?" Gotenks exclaimed. In the front yard of the Capsule Corp, most of the adults had passed out, the kids were running around rampant and Remy, CJ and Marron looked exhausted.
"Everyone had a party." Remy said lifelessly.
"The bad guys are over there." Marron said, pointing to a cage with Anithius and Hamelis both inside. They were also wearing party hats.
"Yeah, Inerl said he's gonna cast a spell to take those guys as soon as we land." Gohan said.
"You guys had a party without us?" Yamcha said, slightly disappointed.
"CJ, are you alright?" Gotenks asked, walking over to her.
"Shut up, I'm sleeping." CJ said. She opened her eyes and looked at Gotenks. "Who the heck are you?"
"Mommy! Daddy!" The younger kids yelled, as they ran to their parents.
"You look funny, Dad." The twins said to David.
"Yeah, well." David said, sweat-dropping.
"I'm Gotenks!" Gotenks said, once again flexing his muscles.
"Is this a dream? Or did someone slip me something?" CJ asked, backing slowly away.
"CJ, this is Trunks and Goten. Fused together." Marron explained, still tired.
"Why would they want to do that?" CJ asked. "It sounds gross."
"AH!" Gotenks screamed. "I AM TORN BETWEEN THE TWO WOMEN IN MY LIFE!"
"That would be Goten screaming." CJ said, nodding. "Always torn between a numerous amount of women."
"HEY!" Gotenks cried.
"And that would be Trunks, annoyed that I implied that he got no action before he was married." CJ said, nodding thoughtfully.
"How do you have enough energy left to mock?" Remy asked.
"I always have energy for that." CJ replied.
"We'd better get everyone into bed, they look exhausted." Andrea said, starting to clean up the mess with her telekinesis.
"Who's this guy?" Nicholas asked, pointing to Alex.
"He looks government." David replied. "We should chuck him out."
"Nah, let's leave it til morning."
"My boys! I'm so glad you're safe!" Chi-Chi said, as she wept and hugged her sons. Everyone else had done the greeting, crying thing all morning, but it was 6pm and Chi-Chi was still going. Most of the Z-Senshi had returned to their homes, only the Sons, the Briefs were left and the friends of Gohan, Trunks and Goten remained. Natalie had administered the cure that Inerl gave her to Goku and Vegeta, which meant that they were back to normal. Which also mean that Vegeta was back to his normal arrogant self.
"Now that everyone's rested and returned safely…" Alex began to say.
"Not all of us have returned safely." CJ said, pointing to the still fused Gotenks.
"It's unbelievable that they're still fused." Goku said, staring in awe.
"I told them not to do it." Gohan said, munching on some food. "Who knows what those chemicals did to their systems? Not to mention their chi. They got ridiculously powerful when they were fighting Medilan. That shouldn't have been able to happen."
"Well, he's got some Saiyan prince blood in him." Vegeta said.
"You can't use that as an explanation to everything, Vegeta." Bulma said.
"Of course not. Only the amazing things that happen to my family."
"Well, I can't give them the cure until they un-fuse." Natalie said.
"AHEM!" Alex said, clearing his throat. "Like I was saying, Videl is in a lot of trouble."
"Fudge cookies, I forgot all about that." Gohan said, starting to sweat nervously.
"Forgot about what?" Videl asked.
"Um…you know that scary broadcast you made to us?"
"Somehow, Ashley Bennington got a hold of it and broadcasted it to the world."
"Videl calm down!"
"How can I be calm?" Videl cried.
"Um…Gohan-san?" CJ said. "I already took care of that."
"Huh?" Everyone said.
"Well, while you were all sleeping, I talked to some people I know and stuff. We got Videl's father to make a statement that she was working undercover to get the aliens to leave us alone. Also, that the explosion was staged etc, etc. Everyone bought it." CJ explained. "Your dad sold the 'my daughter is getting into the world saving business' angle of the story."
"Story?" Alex asked.
"Yes, story." CJ replied. "Unless you wanna explain to everyone how she was mind controlled. That excuse has been used in every form of sci-fi literature I can think of. No one would believe it."
"I'm not sure I believe it." Alex said.
"Well, you'd better or you're gonna get this." CJ said, shaking her fist at Alex. Everyone in the room sweat-dropped.
"That's certainly a weight off my shoulders." Gohan sighed.
"Wait, if you already did that, why didn't you tell anyone?" Remy asked.
"If I did, then Alex would've left sooner. I was doing you a favour." CJ replied.
"What? Doing you favours?"
"NO! YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!" Remy said, blushing furiously.
"Anyways!" Natalie interrupted. "I think Trunks and Goten are finally starting to separate." Sure enough, the fusion was wearing off and in no time, the boys were back to their regular selves.
"Trunks!" Marron said, giving her husband a hug.
"Hey." Goten said shyly to CJ.
"Hey yourself." She replied.
"Awwwwww!" Everyone said.
"SHUT IT!" CJ said.
"Eugh, I don't feel so good." Goten said, keeling over.
"Goten!" Chi-Chi and CJ exclaimed.
"Don't worry, Mrs Son, he'll be fine." Natalie smiled. "He's just tired from everything that's happened."
"YAY!" David screamed. "I'm back to my normal self!" Indeed, the teens had been turned back into their proper ages.
"Yay!" Nicholas said, hugging Natalie.
"Dude, reposition your head. Could you be anymore obvious?" Natalie said. Nicholas's head was currently on her chest.
"But I missed them!"
"We'd better get going." Remy said, signalling to CJ.
"I'm gonna stay with Goten." CJ replied.
"I'll give you a ride back." Alex said, suddenly appearing behind Remy.
"But I only live down the…"
"Come on." Alex said, pushing her playfully out of the door.
"I'll get you for this, CJ!" Remy yelled.
"Hah, the amount of times I've heard that remarked yelled at me before." CJ smirked. Everyone around her sweat-dropped.
"Come on Dave. Now that you've got your big muscles back, you're going to help carry Goten to the Sons car." Andrea said. "And then you're gonna help me and Nat get the kids ready."
"Hahaha, he's so whipped." Nicholas laughed.
"What was that?" Natalie said, pulling his ear.
"I love you, honey." Nicholas grinned. Natalie blushed slightly and let go of his ear. "YES! You think I'm cute again!"
"I do not."
"Yes you do."
"Oh Nick? I didn't get the chance to tell you with all the commotion…I'm pregnant. Again."
"WHAT?" Everyone yelled.
"Don't you guys ever rest?" Gohan asked, and then covered his mouth in embarrassment. "Sorry. Brain and mouth forgot to conference before letting that out."
"Nick?" Natalie said, waving her hand in front of his face. "Uh oh, he's gone. He does that every time."
"Can you get him out of it?" Bulma asked, as she watched all the younger kids run around Nicholas and poke him repeatedly.
"Yes." Natalie said. "Stacy Keibler!"
"LEGS!" Nicholas cried as he snapped out of it, dropping half the kids in the process.
"Hey Drake, we're getting ready to go!" Claudia said, going into the garden.
"Hey." Drake said. "We staying at yours?"
"Yeah, for now." Claudia replied. "What's wrong with Pan?"
"She's bummed about Zophen. He had a girlfriend."
"And he's about as old as her dad."
"You know I can hear you, right?" Pan said. She was only a few feet away from them.
"Yes. We were hoping to get you mad enough so that you'd talk to us." Drake said. Pan narrowed her eyes angrily. "Mate, you're only 15. You'll find someone else."
"Besides, you got good genes. Your mom is hot."
"Is that your attempt at making me feel better?" Pan asked.
"It's the best you're gonna get. Especially after you yelled at me." Drake replied.
"Well, you deserved it. Stealing that poor girl's chastity." Pan smirked.
"Well, it would be you, wouldn't it?" Claudia said.
"Not you too!"
"Hnnn, where am I?" Goten mumbled. "Mmm, I smell something good."
"I would take that as a compliment, but seeing as it's you, you're probably talking about your mother's cooking."
"In the flesh."
"I'm glad you're here." Goten said, taking her and kissing it. "What happened to me?"
"Drained chi or something. Natalie gave you the vaccine and you should be back to normal. Blonde transformations and everything." CJ smiled.
"Where's everyone else?" Goten asked.
"We're at your house now. Your parents thought it'd be best if we took you home."
"Did I miss anything?" Goten asked, sitting up in his bed.
"Nothing much." CJ smiled. She stroked Goten's hair. "I'm glad all this is over. Maybe we can finally have a proper first date now."
"Yeah." CJ said.
"Hey, can I call you my girlfriend?" Goten asked.
"I don't know how I feel about that." CJ replied. Goten slumped.
"I mean, I haven't been a girl for years. We're a bit too grown up for that. I suppose lover would make you embarrassed." CJ said, laughing on the inside as she teased Goten.
"N-no it wouldn't."
"You're blushing right now!"
"No, I'm not!" Goten said, covering his face with his blanket. CJ laughed. "Ooh, I made you laugh. Success!"
"Shut up!" CJ said, still giggling.
"You got a cute laugh."
"Hey, don't try and turn this around! I'm the one teasing here!"
"Sorry." Goten smiled. "You know what? I'm kinda sad that our first kiss wasn't more romantic."
"Yeah. I always wished that our first kiss would be after our first date. Not on your birthday, with teenage hormones running rampant." Goten sighed. CJ chuckled.
"You're such a romantic. Although Goten, that wasn't our first kiss."
"When was it?"
"Well, if you don't remember, I'm not going to tell you." CJ said. "Although, if you don't remember, it's probably my fault. I did knock you out after."
"Don't strain yourself! Get back into bed!"
"Not until you tell me!"
"You'll have to remember by yourself!"
"Why are you looking at me like that?"
"I'm trying to remember if you're ticklish."
"Hahahahaa! No, stop!"
In the living room…
"It's been a while since we've had this much noise in the house." Chi-Chi said, snuggling up to Goku on the sofa.
"Goku, are you even listening to me?" Chi-Chi asked. She followed Goku's eye-line and realised he was staring at the chicken in the kitchen. "Sigh."
FINALLLY! Good sweet me, this was long in coming huh? (3 years, I'M SO SORRY!) I'm honestly so sorry that it has taken me so long to update this story. I really wanted it to be good, and not rushed. I don't know if it turned out good, that'll be up to you guys. Now, I know what I said about this being my last story, but seeing as I've kept you guys waiting for so long, I'll let you decide. As far as the timeline goes for these characters, this is the last stop. However, if you want me to continue, let me know, and I'll do an "untold tales" kind of series. They'll all be one shot chapters (no cliffhangers, yay!) and they'll be set between my first story and my last. I was also thinking of doing some stories of when Videl and the gang were young (pre-Gohan sadly) so let me know!
Thanks, and bye!
