Disclaimer: I so do not own DBZ. I wish I did, but what are you going to do about it. This story was written for a friend. So he had better enjoy it.

Children crying. Women Screaming. Mayhem and destruction surrounded him. An evil, sadistic glint began to twinkle in his eye. He loved it. The smirk on his face grew wide, and then fell, as he took on a more serious look to face his former allies. Goku took lead in front of the other Z Warriors. Shock, hurt, anger, and betrayal filled his eyes.

"Piccolo, you have to stop!" he shouted.

"Why?" Piccolo answered with a confused look on his face. "This is fun."

This was not the answer Goku expected to hear.

"We don't want to fight you, but we will if we have too." Krillin stated from his position behind his friend.

"So be it." Piccolo said and fired a massive blast in the direction of Goku, determined to 'play' with him first.

Goku shoved Krillin out of the way, before shielding himself with his arms. As the smoke cleared, Krillin and Yamcha scanned the destroyed piece of land, praying to Kami that Goku survived.

Suddenly a shadowed figure spoke, "Please Piccolo, I thought you were my friend. We have fought side by side for years! I thought of you as a brother! A second father to my son!" Tears now falling from his eyes.

Piccolo smiled and laughed at this. "You Saiyans are all the same." He began. "Your son and I had the same conversation not too long ago."

Fear began to fill Goku's eyes. "Where is Gohan? What did you do to him?"

"Well, he tried to talk sense into me, so I beat some into him." he said. "But don't worry, I've brought you something to remember him by." And with that, he threw the severed head of Gohan at his father's feet.

Krillin and Yamcha's heads hung low as they said a silent goodbye to their friend. Suddenly they were thrown back by a massive power surge as Goku powered up to SSJ-3. No longer could he control his anger. The death of his son at the hands of this monster was the last straw.

Piccolo was pleased. For years he had wanted to finish their fight from long ago. Now that he has ascended, he can finally do that. "I'll tell you what Goku, I'll give you a chance to kill me in one shot. All or nothing."

He didn't have long to wait as Goku took his all too familiar stance.

"Ka – Me"

Piccolo placed two fingers to his forehead, signaling his Special Beam Cannon.

"Ha – Me"

Piccolo closed his eyes, preparing for what was to come.


At the release of the wave, Piccolo phased out and appears behind Goku, kicking him in the back.

So there is the first part of the story. Hopefully in the next part, I will be able to finish the fight and explain a few things about some other people.
