Secret Heart

Chapter 1

Videl kept her eyes fixated on the young man's ones, making him somewhat nervous. But he resisted, not giving in. He mustn't give in, even if he was dying to.

"What are you hiding, Son Gohan?"

Secret heart
What are you made of?
What are you so afraid of?

He laughed nervously, scratching the back of his head – a habit he inherited from his father.

"I don't hide anything, Videl. Where does that come from?"

She narrowed her eyes even more, as she kept her glare fixed on him, making him more and more nervous.

"Stop playing dumb with me. I know you're hiding something. And trust me, I will find out what."

At those words, she turned on her heels and walked away, leaving Gohan alone in the now empty corridors of Orange Star High School. Seeing her leave, he sighed in relief.

Could it be
Three simple words
Or the fear of being overheard
What's wrong?

Gohan tried to ignore Videl's glare, without much success. Why was she so determined to discover his secrets? And just how could she be so sure he has secrets? Okay, he had jumped really high in his first day, during PE, but it wasn't that extraordinary, was that?

He sighed. It's too bad that the only thing that interests her in me is my secrets, he thought sadly. But I can't tell her. She'll think I'm a freak.

Let her in on your secret heart

Videl could see that she was making him nervous by glaring at him like this, and she smiled inwardly. It wouldn't be long before he would give in. He will eventually tell her his secrets.

This guy had immediately intrigued her. He was so mysterious… And he was hiding something, of that she was sure.

Secret Heart
Why so mysterious
Why so sacred
Why so serious

If there was one thing she hated in people, it was when they hid things from her. That was why that she refused to get close to him. But it wasn't easy. Gohan was so kind… And it wasn't fake kindness, like those who tried to get to her father through her. No. Gohan, he was naturally kind.

And, well… He was kind of cute.

Videl blushed at her own thoughts, then shook her head. What the hell was she thinking? Satan Videl didn't find a boy cute. Satan Videl was strong, and certainly didn't need a boy.

Maybe you're
Just acting tough
Maybe you're just not bad enough
What's wrong?

The bell rang, announcing the end of the classes, and it was with a sigh of relief that Gohan hastily put his things in his bag, and then he quickly went out of the classroom, glad to be able to escape from Videl.

But the young girl wasn't going to give up any time soon, and followed him out of school. He noticed her, of course, able to sense her Ki following him in the streets of Satan City.

Why can't she leave me alone? He asked himself.

Let her in on your secret heart

He let out a deep sigh, leaning against a tree.

"Videl, you can come out, I know you're here."

Videl was more than surprised that Gohan would notice her following him. She had made quite sure to be discreet. She came out from her hiding spot, behind some wall, feeling a bit ashamed to have been found out.

"How did you know that I was following you?" she asked.

"Why were you following me?" he asked in turn, his tone weary, ignoring her question.

She decided to go with the truth. "I wanted to know how you do to come and go to school everyday."

He shook his head, piqued. "You don't think it would have been easier to just ask me?"

She seemed surprised. "You mean… You would have told me?"

For any answer, he took out a capsule, pushed the button and threw it, creating a cloud of smoke. Once dissipated, they could see that a red Jet Copter had appeared.

Gohan inwardly thanked Bulma for this Jet Copter, which she gave him on his last birthday. He hoped that now Videl would stop suspecting him. He obsolutely had to keep his secrets, even if deep down, he wanted just one thing: tell her everything, once and for all.

But he couldn't. Like he couldn't tell her about his feeling for her.

This very secret
That you're trying to conceal
Is the very same one
You're dying to reveal
Go tell her how you feel

It was so ironic. Of all girls, he had to fall in love with her. Mister Satan's daughter. The man who stole his credit for killing Cell. Not that it mattered to him, he didn't want the glory and the celebrity. He was happy living quietly with his family, in his little home in the mountains.

Videl's voice interrupted his thoughts.

"So, you have a Jet Copter. But that doesn't tell me what your others secrets are."

"Videl, for the last time, I don't have secrets. Really."

She sighed. "You know, it's really a pity. If you weren't such a liar, we could've been friends."

Maybe even more, she added to herself.

Secret heart, come out and share it
This loneliness, few can bear it

"Why do you want to know my secrets so much?" he asked.

"Then you admit you do have secrets."

He hesitated, then sighed. "Yes."

She moved closer to him, making Gohan more than uncomfortable. "Then, why not share them with me? I can keep secrets, you know."

He blushed at their proximity, looking away. "I… I can't."

"Why not?"

Was it him or was it really hot all of a sudden? "Because I can't."

She frowned, disappointed that she didn't get the answer she had expected. But she wasn't going to give up.

"Why can't you? It would relieve you to share your secrets with someone, and I ready to listen."

Could it have something to do with
Admitting that you just can't go through it alone
Let her in on your secret heart

Seeing that he wasn't saying anything, she decided to be go for it.

"Are you Saiyaman?"

He sighed. She was still suspecting him to be the super hero. What did he have to do to have her believe him?

"No Videl, I'm not Great Saiyaman." He hated to lie, especially to her, but he had no choice, so he continued: "I don't even know how to fight, so doing the stuff he does…"


"Yes Videl, really. You've got the wrong person."

"Then why do you get out of class pretending to go to the bathroom, every time I get a call from the police?" she asked.

"A coincidence?" He tried, more and more nervous.

"I don't think so."

He was sweating, feeling more and more uncomfortable, and the fact that she was still standing very close to him really wasn't helping.

"Look at the time! I have to go Videl, or else my mother's going to get worried," he said, getting ready to get in his Jet Copter. But he wasn't counting on Videl taking hold of his arm and stopping him in his tracks.

"Not so fast, Gohan. I'm not finished with you yet."

"Videl, I really have to go. Please let go of me."

"No, I said I wasn't finished with you. I have some more questions for you."

This very secret
That you're trying to conceal
Is the very same one
That you're dying to reveal
Go tell her how you feel

Gohan didn't know what to do. He needed a diversion. Something to distract her long enough so that he climbed in his Jet Copter and ran away from here. Then he got an idea. It was very risky, and she would surely kill him tomorrow, but oh well. He had to escape at any cost.

So, taking her by surprise, he pulled her to him… and kissed her. Videl's eyes were wide open so much she was surprised, she didn't expect this at all. Then, she closed them, and responded to the kiss, which quite surprised Gohan. He really didn't think that she would respond to his kiss. But he decided to make the most of it and kept kissing her, wrapping his arms around her waist, as she wrapped hers around his neck. After a while, they started to need air, and had to break away. They didn't say a thing for a while, eyes still closed, panting. And then, taking advantage that Videl was still in a dazed state, Gohan moved away from her, and climbed hastily on his Jet Copter, taking off in a hurry.

This very secret
Go out and share it
This very secret

The sound of the take off seemed to 'wake up' Videl, and she blinked several times. She saw Gohan's Jet Copter fly away hurriedly, then realized what just happened and clenched her fists in rage.

"Son Gohan, I'm going to kill you!"

To Be Continued…
