Disclaimer: I do not own Dragonball Z

Goku might seem a little OOC in this one, but it's on purpose. Do you really think that with his fighting ability and strategizing skills, that he is as much of a complete idiot as he lets on?

His father was a genius and so is his son. Do you think it skipped a generation? Or do you think Gohan gets it from Chichi? Anyway, on to the story.

Goku walked down a street in West City looking for the boys. He knew where they were, but Chichi was mad at him again and he didn't want to go home quite yet. He heard someone call "Son Goku!"

"Who said that?" He looked across the street and saw a man beckon at him. He narrowed his eyes and crossed the street. "What do you want?"

"I've heard a few things about you. That you've saved the world on a few occasions, that you're an excellent strategist, and that you're as dumb as it gets. Now tell me which of those doesn't fit."

Goku scratched his head "I don't know. I wouldn't say I'm an excellent strategist…"

The man shook his head "Drop the dumb act, Son. I want you to work for me."

"Ah, gee, no thanks, I'm not good at holding down a job." He scratched his head and grinned then made to leave.

"If you don't I'll reveal that you're a genius. I'll send this out over the net and the television." He held a camcorder in front of Goku's face and showed Goku a clip of himself in Bulma's lab fixing one of her machines. Goku thought 'I thought all the cameras were off'

"How did you get that?" He looked guilty.

"Relax, Goku. We just want you to work for us, help us make things. I promise you won't have to do anything against your creed."

"And if you do I can leave?"

"Absolutely."

"…I'll do it."
