Read Me a Story, Daddy


Little Bra threw back the covers and hopped into bed. She looked up expectantly at her father who was watching her with his arms crossed over his chest. He glanced at her, wondering what she wanted.

"Aren't you going to tuck me in, daddy?" she asked as if it were something he should already know about. He dropped his arms to the side and resisted the urge to roll his eyes. This father thing still eluded him.

"Okay, Bra," he replied and pulled the covers up to her neck. She giggled and waited expectantly again. He stared at her warily, wondering what else she wanted.

"Aren't you going to read me a story, daddy?" she asked and Vegeta cringed. He looked for an escape route, but found none easily accessible without causing his daughter to throw a tantrum.

"Ah... sure, Bra."

He walked over to her shelf and picked out a book titled 'Mother Goose's Fairytales.' He silently mused about how a goose could tell fairytales and what kind of satanic teachings this goose was practicing before returning to his daughter's bed. He sat on the edge and flipped through the pages to stop on 'Little Red Riding Hood.'

"Okay, Little Red Riding Hood," he announced. Bra clapped her hands together eagerly and the four-year-old quieted to allow her father to read.

"Once upon a time, there was a little..." he smirked evilly and glanced at Bra before continuing, "boy named Kakkarot. He frollicked through the meadows until he reached his cottage. When he entered, his mother, ChiChi, told him that he had to bring some biscuits and other goodies to his grandmother who lived in the woods.

"Little Kakkarot picked up his basket full of goodies, tied his red cloak around him to keep warm because he was a weakling, and skipped out the door of his cottage. He decided to bring along his pet dog, Yamucha. But this dog was incredibly stupid, so Kakkarot had to put a leash on him. So Kakkarot was skipping through the woods and he let go of Yamucha's leash accidently. Yamucha was so dumb that he ran off and poor, little Kakkarot never saw him again."

"Daddy," Bra interrupted, "Mommy never said there was a dog and why are you calling Little Red Riding Hood 'Kakkarot?'"

"Let daddy finish reading," he told her before returning to the book.

"So after Yamucha ran away, Kakkarot was very sad that he had lost his boyfr-- best friend. He was wandering through the woods, eating the biscuits because he eats everything, when he came upon an all-powerful, king of the universe wolf.

"The big, bad wolf stopped him and asked little Kakkarot to share some of the biscuits with him. Well, since Kakkarot eats everything and there were none left, he couldn't give any to the big, bad wolf and said that he had to get to his grandmother's house. Kakkarot skipped off stupidly to continue on his way to his grandmother's house. The super-powerful wolf promised himself that since he couldn't have any biscuits, he'd eat the little boy Kakkarot and his grandmother instead. He used his ultra-fast flying skills to beat Kakkarot to his grandmother's house in the middle of the woods.

"When he got there, he went inside the house and found the grandmother, Gohan, knitting some mittens because the grandmother was very girly and didn't train enough. Since the wolf was really powerful, a lot more powerful than the little Kakkarot, he quickly ate the grandmother. Gohan tasted really bad, but the wolf was still hungry, so he waited for Kakkarot in grandmother's clothes as a disguise. Eventually Kakkarot knocked on the door and came inside.

"'Grandmother?' he asked. He spotted his grandmother -- the big, bad wolf in disguise -- sitting in a chair still knitting those damn mittens."

Bra gasped and covered her mouth with her little hands. "You said a naughty word! Mommy will be really mad!"

Vegeta cringed and looked behind him. Then he whispered, "We'll just let that be our little secret. Now back to the story."

"So anyway, Kakkarot said, 'I've brought you some goodies... but I ate them.' He pouted, showing the wolf the empty basket. He looked at his grandmother again and said, 'Wow, grandmother, what big hair you have!'

"The grandmother, turned wolf, scowled at the little boy and said, 'It's the hair of the royals and all the better to be taller than you with!'

"'My, grandmother, what a big power level you have!' Kakkarot said in awe-stricken worship.

"'All the better to defeat you with!' replied the wolf.

"Kakkarot leaned in closer and heard the wolf's stomach growling. 'Wow! What a big appetite you have!'

"The wolf grinned. 'All the better to eat you with!' And then the wolf gobbled up the little Kakkarot. The end!"

Vegeta closed the book and looked at his daughter expectantly. Bra scrunched together her eyes in a little pout and crossed her arms over her chest. "You forgot to say how the villageman came and chopped the wolf open and rescued the grandmother and Little Red Kakkarot!"

Vegeta chuckled and shook his head. "No, you see, this wolf was so powerful that nobody in the universe could defeat him, so Kakkarot and the grandmother were never rescued. Now go to sleep."

Seemingly satisfied, little Bra closed her eyes and promptly fell asleep. Vegeta smirked and left the room, closing the door quietly behind him.


Heheheh. When someone like Vegeta is trying to read a bedtime story, you know there will be problems. XD I've written many romance, drama/angst stories, but I thought I'd try my hand at a funny one. Forgive me if it's not very humorous. ^^; I may continue on with another night of story-telling if some people want me to. ^~ Thanks for reading and check out some of my other fics!
