Chapter 21

"….Pregnant?" I squeaked.

The nurse looked at her chart again before looking back to me.

"Yup, and it's strong too to have survived the trauma you've been in."

A child with Vegeta. An heir to the Saiyan throne tied to earth. A protector.

My purpose was suddenly clear.

I looked up to Vegeta and he'd gone white. It was a face I'd never seen on him and I couldn't help but laugh.

He looked down at me and humphed before turning toward the window and crossing his arms.

The nurse looked uncomfortable.

"I'll just…let you two alone to…celebrate." She tried to smile as she quickly ducked out of the room.

It was quiet for a long time.

Finally he spoke.

"A half breed brat…" he muttered, almost to himself.

"Vegeta-"

"He'll have to be trained at a very early age to overcome the human handicap." He cut me off, turning to smirk at me.

I hit him playfully in the arm and then pulled him towards me, kissing his smirking mouth.

"Ha! He's lucky to have it, without the human side he'd just be an angry prick like his daddy…" I said softly, smiling up at him.

Vegeta growled and pulled me closer.

"Vulgar woman…" he said before claiming my lips again.

Suddenly the door burst open and I pulled away quickly in embarrassment.

"I can't believe it; I'm going to be a grandmother!!" My mother burst into the room and kissed Vegeta on the cheek before enveloping me in a huge hug. Out of the corner of my eye I saw my father trudge in sheepishly.

"I'm sorry, peanut, I tried to keep her in the hall…but you know you're mother."

"Oh Bulma, there's so much to buy! We need a crib, blankets, formula…" my mother prattled on.

"It's ok, Daddy, I'm glad she told you." I said.

"Oh and those adorable baby clothes! And a stroller, a high chair…" My mother was flouncing around the room.

With the door wide open I could see behind my mother that David hadn't come in behind them. In fact, he seemed to be chatting it up with my blonde nurse! And she didn't seem entirely put off by it.

I giggled to myself, wondering if I would be seeing more of that nurse in the future, now that she was getting along so well with my best employee.

"and diapers and bottles…oooh and those cute little booties!"

I sighed and laid my head back against Vegeta. He put his arms around me and kissed the top of my head.

I finally felt whole. I had a purpose now. I had a family. And I was going to have a child that would grow up to be a protector of the entire world.

The Bulma in me was finally…me.
