Fate Be Told

Chapter 11: Last Few Days

Bulma awoke, in-between sleep and reality, life did not seem so bad. For a fleeting second she felt happy because she had slept next to the man who was capturing her heart. She would never have expected something like this to happen to her. When she first met Vegeta, he was cold and harsh. She would never have dreamed that they would end up like this... whatever this was. Last night came flooding back in a rush of emotions and images. Her eyes widened and she turned to see if Vegeta was still there.

He was. He was watching her. Leaning on his elbow, he was so close to her. He was so handsome; so dark; so mysterious, she could not believe her luck. It made her blush and she smiled lightly up at him. He smirked, trailing a finger over her warm cheek.

"Humans and their emotions."

"Pfft, don't tell me Saiyans never blush." Bulma replied, grabbing his hand and entwining her fingers with his.

"Saiyans never blush." Bulma rolled her eyes, she should have expected that.

"Is that so Mr. Prince Of All Saiyans?"

"Yes, woman. Or do you want to give it a try?" Vegeta smirked some more, lust evident in his eyes. This just made Bulma blush some more and she cursed herself in her head. Why did he have such an effect on her? Usually she was more in control, but around him she felt like a school girl. She probably acted like one too!

"Maybe I will!" Bulma said playfully. She pushed Vegeta so that he was on his back and she was on top of him. She knew he was stronger than her, but she was happy when he complied. She straddled him, watching him. She bit her lip, he was so sexy! His hands immediately were on her hips. What did he see in her?

"Uh uh uh." Bulma removed his hands and then held them above his head, leaning down, her lips were almost on his.

"Woman..." Vegeta's voice was thick and she knew he wanted to do more but he was playing along with her.

"I first want to see you blush before I kiss you, Vegeta." She said his name with as much feeling as she could and it worked, because before she knew it he was on top of her.

"Enough of your silly game." He smirked and then kissed her deeply. She let him kiss her for a while but then she bit his lip before pulling back.

"I want to be on top." She pouted, hoping she would get her way. She was surprised when Vegeta obliged yet again, his hands were on her hips again and she knew she wouldn't get away with taking them off, so she let them stay. She leaned down to kiss him again.

Their kisses grew more heated and before she knew it, her t-shirt was off. Her body was tightly pressed against Vegeta's and she couldn't help but let out a slight moan. And that's when someone knocked on Vegeta's door.

She heard him growl underneath her.

"It can only be a message from my father since he is the only one that knows where my quarters are hidden."

He didn't make a move to go answer the door though. She grinned at him, but the regretfully got off of him. He scowled at her and then made his way to the door. She couldn't hear what was being said. That's when it hit her. Vegeta was really hurt last night, but now looking at him, he was nearly completely healed. It was amazing! She knew Saiyans healed fast, but wow!

Bulma was sitting at the edge of the bed waiting for Vegeta to return.

"My insolent excuse of a father is hosting a going away banquet for his one and only son tomorrow night." There was a look of disgust on Vegeta's face. He really didn't like King Vegita that much. There must be more to it than just him sending Vegeta to work under Frieza. Being reminded that Vegeta was going away washed Bulma over with sadness. She wished he didn't have to leave her here... This Saiyan prince... her Saiyan prince... had her heart, what would it be like when he was away? She knew she would worry herself sick over him, wondering what Frieza was doing to him or planning for him, so many things could go wrong. What if he didn't come back for a long time... what if he never came back. Bulma shuddered.

Vegeta saw how the woman transformed to happy and then sad in one second and he knew why. Strangely enough, he was disturbed because he was leaving her here. He didn't know what he felt for her... but something in him had definitely changed and it was because of her. And just as that sadness was there, it was gone.

Bulma stood up and walked over to Vegeta, putting her arms around him.

"I think it will be fun." Bulma kissed him gently. "It will be an excuse for me to dress up. And maybe we can even dance." Bulma winked. "Let's get dressed and go get some breakfast. I want to see what the plans are for the banquet!"

Vegeta watched as Bulma got dressed. This woman...his woman... was changing his life. But what if he couldn't protect her from Frieza? Who knew what that lizard's plans were for him and when he was away, who was going to watch over her? What if something happened?
