A/N- Wow! The last 3 weeks went by so fast. Sorry it took me this long to update, but I was finishing my exams xD

I know this is going to come as a shock... or maybe not since I've said it a million times... but this is actually the last chapter... )=

Enjoy (=

---------------On with the Story---------------

Last time;

He shook his head a few more times, reminding himself that she had chosen to come home, so he didn't need to think about how his life would be without her. He smiled a bit before making his way downstairs, not surprised when everyone just stared at him in a questioning fashion.

"She's fine," was all he said as he walked towards the kitchen.

Now; Going Home

Pan yawned as she woke up, feeling completely rejuvenated. She looked around and noticed that Bra was nowhere to be found, and the sun was just breaking the horizon. 'It must be really early still. Where could Bra be?' She felt out with her senses and noticed that Bra's Ki was in the living room with her uncle's, both completely at rest. 'I guess they fell asleep in the living room.'

Pan couldn't help but smile to herself, she was so happy for her best friend. Bra had loved Goten for as long as either of them could remember, about the same length of time that she had been in love with Trunks. They were just perfect for each other. Unfortunately, only Bra would have her fairytale ending.

'Maybe the me of this time will get a happy ending at least? Trunks(p) has sworn that he'll always love me, and that as soon as the Pan from this time is old enough he's going to love her just as much, so maybe things will work out for one of us.'

Pan sighed, she could only hope for the best. She shook her head as she got out from under her covers. She had already decided she could live with him as just a friend, as long as she could always have him in her life, she needed to stop thinking about these things, before it caused her premature death.

She shivered as she made her way downstairs, wishing they had bought sweaters when they went shopping. She considered getting one from Trunks' room; she could more than likely sneak in and out without him noticing. Deciding against it, she descended the last of the stairs and walked into the living room, surprised when she also saw both her uncle and Trunks from this time.

'I wonder if it was weird for Goten(p) to see Bra and my uncle together like this? He sure fell for her fast. I guess in any time Bra will always be desirable.' She smiled again as she looked at Bra curled up at her uncle's side.

"Don't they look adorable?" Pan jumped at the mocking voice. She turned and glared at the source of said voice.

"What would you know about adorable?" she said with a roll of her eyes.

Trunks(f) pretended to be hurt. "Ouch Panny, that stings. I know lots about being adorable thank you very much."

"With all the girls you go through, you should."

This time he really was hurt, but he didn't let it show. "Awe, don't be jealous."

Pan's face turned bright red. "Please. Like I'd be jealous of you Boxer Boy" she said as she stuck her tongue out.

"You better put that thing back in your mouth before I pull it out," he said as he pretended to make a grab for her tongue as Pan quickly retracted it back in her mouth.

"Here." He handed her the sweater he had been holding in his other arm.

Pan raised an eyebrow as she accepted the sweater, "What's this for?"

Trunks shrugged, "You were shivering since you came downstairs."

"You were down here the whole time? I didn't even notice you."

Trunks laughed, "You seemed a little preoccupied," he said as he nodded in the direction of Bra and Goten.

Pan smiled, "Thanks" she said as she put it on, instantly feeling warmer, she could tell he had been wearing it recently.

"Are you sad that we're leaving today?"

"...no," she said after a few seconds. "The things I want are in our time."

"Well that's good," he said as he gave her a light shove. "It wouldn't be the same without you." With that said, he turned and walked towards the kitchen.

She stared after him as her stomach grumbled. She was happy that the secret was out and she would be able to have a good breakfast instead of what she had been forced to eat for the past few days.

Deciding she would force Trunks to cook her something she walked into the kitchen.

"What's for breakfast?" he asked with a smirk.

"Excuse me?" she asked back.

"Aren't you gunna cook me my breakfast?"

"Pfft. I think you're a little mixed up here Boxer Boy. It is you who will be cooking me breakfast."

"You know I'm a lousy cook Panny, why would you want me to make you breakfast?"

Pan shrugged, "I'm just lazy."

"You're always lazy."

Pan glared at him. Why did he have to have a comeback to everything? Couldn't he ever just let her win and get her way for once? He was always arguing with her.

"So?" she bit back.

"Well.. make me breakfast," he said with another smirk.

Pan rolled her eyes, "No."

"Guess we're gonna starve then. And here you inherited all those amazing cooking skills from Chichi and Videl, what a waste."

"You're the one who's going to starve. Like you said, I can cook. Unfortunately for you, you inherited your cooking skills from both your mother and father."

Trunks pouted, "You wouldn't let your best friend starve now would you?"

Pan thought about it for a few seconds. "Nope! Of course not, I'd definitely make enough for Bra to eat as well. Maybe even enough for Goten."

"Holy, break my heart why don't you?"

Pan giggled as she watched him pout. Even though he was a pain in her ass most of the time, he always reminded her of why she loved him so much.

"Wanna go spar before breakfast?" she asked. "Then when we come in someone else will have already cooked it and neither of us will have to do it."

Trunks grinned, "You're on!" he said as he vanished from his spot at the kitchen chair.


The sleeping teens in the living room were woken up by the delicious smell coming from the kitchen. They all made their way there to find Chichi and Videl making the biggest meal any of them had ever seen.

"When did you get here mom?" Goten(p) asked.

"About an hour ago," Videl answered for Chichi who was checking on the food.

"Wow, it smells so great Mrs. Son," Bra complimented.

"Thank you dear!" Chichi answered, her eyes gleaming over with little stars as she stared at the girl. Everyone present knew she was thinking one thing: GRANDBABIES!

"Would you like any help?" the blue haired girl offered.

"Do you cook like your mom?" Chichi asked.

"No, I'm actually quite good."

Behind her, Goten(F) was furiously shaking his head, trying to warn his mother not to let Bra join in without letting said girl see.

"Thank you for the offer, but we're fine dear."

Goten sighed, thankful that the meal would be edible.

"Why don't you guys go join Pan and the guys outside?"

Goten, Goten and Trunks' eyes lit up as Bra rolled hers before they all made their way outside. They could sense both Vegeta's Ki's in the gravity room and Goku, Gohan's, Trunks' and Pan's somewhere off in the mountain area.

They took off towards where their companions were, the majority of them eager to get in on the action.

Bra sat on the ground as she watched the boys join the fight.

-----An hour later-----

They all made their way back to CC, excited about the feast that awaited them. Pan was probably the most excited though; just the thought of food was making her mouth water.

They all sat down and began to dig in, oblivious to the looks on Chichi, Videl and Bulma's faces. "I never thought I'd see this many Saiyans eating at once," Videl mumbled, not sure if she would ever get used to this.

"It'll get easier after a while," Chichi encouraged. "I can't wait until my grandbaby is born," she squealed, completely changing the subject.

Pan had eaten about half her food when she got up and went to the bathroom. She came back a few minutes later, only to notice that her plate was now empty and Trunks had a small smirk on his face as he ignored her and continued to eat his food.

"BOXER BOY!" She yelled at the top of her lungs. "WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING EATING MY FOOD?"

"Pan hunny, calm down," Videl tried, surprised at how easy the words came out. "There's a lot more food."

"That's not the point," she bit out in her mother's direction while still glaring at Trunks. She suddenly lunged at him, knocking him from his chair.

Videl blinked as they suddenly disappeared. "Where... did...?"

Without even bothering to stop eating, Vegeta(f) motioned to Goten's chair, which was empty.

"Wow I'm fast," said Goten from the past. "I didn't even see him phase."

Bra giggled, "This is a regular occurrence. Trunks and Pan always break out into random fights and Goten gets them outta the house before they damage anything. Mom gets soooo mad at them when they destroy the house."

Gohan frowned, "Do they really fight that much?"

An irritated look crossed Bra's face. "They fight like siblings. It's not like they're really fighting."

"He should know never to mess with a Saiyans food," Gohan grumbled.

"He does." Bra said, standing up for her brother. "But he also knows it's the best way to push Pan's buttons. They love arguing with each other, they just wouldn't be them if they didn't."

Gohan didn't reply, he just started eating again. He wasn't completely against his daughter being with Trunks, he just didn't like the way they fought. Mostly, he didn't like that his unborn child already had her entire future mapped out. At least he knew she would be happy, and well taken care of, but even knowing those things, he couldn't help the irritation he felt towards their pending relationship.

Goten suddenly materialized back in his chair and began eating again.

"How are they?" Bra asked when she realized Goten wasn't going to mention anything.

Her lover shrugged, "Probably very pissed at me."

"What did you do?"

Goten smirked, proving he hung around Trunks ways too often. "Dropped one off in Antarctica and the other at the bottom of the ocean. I don't think they're going to be very happy when they get back."

Everyone caught the smirk that crossed Vegeta's(F) face, they could tell he had grown a lot more fond of Goten in the 16 years that had passed.


It took hours before both Pan and Trunks had returned, and Goten more than likely would have been dead if it wasn't for the fact that they started arguing about who got back faster.

"Would you two just give it a rest?" Bra snapped. "Seriously, just wait until we're home before you start fighting. You're leaving a bad impression on our hosts."

"Alright," Trunks agreed as he grabbed Pan in a headlock and gave her a nuggie (noogie?) before releasing the glaring girl. "Truce?"

Pan just scowled at him as she tried to fix her hair. She shivered slightly; she was still cold from having Goten drop her off in the middle of Antarctica. Leave it to Goten to find the only person's Ki and take her there before she could even blink. At least she had her Ki to keep her warm, and Trunks' sweater didn't hurt.

"We should probably get going," Goten pointed out. "I'm pretty sure my brother is just dying to see Panny."

Pan's face completely dropped, she had forgotten that she was going to have to deal with her dad. "Quick Trunks, hit me!"

"What?" Trunks asked as he stared at her like she had grown another head.

"If I go home unconscious, then he'll just be happier that I'm alive and might forget to yell at me."

"Has Gohan ever forgotten to yell at you?" Bra asked as she rolled her eyes. "You're dead either way girlie."

Pan sighed, she knew it was true, there was nothing she could do to avoid her father's wrath, and her mother's might be even worse. "Are you sure you guys don't want to stay a little while longer? Hehe."

"No, I told them we'd be back by 3. We're actually late, thanks to Goten," Trunks said as he glared at his best friend.

"Hey, it's not my fault you two can't get along. And you didn't give me much time to think of a better place to send you two."

"Whatever, let's just get going – and how the hell did you locate a diver at the bottom of the ocean so quickly?"

Goten ignored his best friends question and just smirked in response.

"It's been really nice having you here," Bulma said as she grabbed Bra in a tight hug before moving on to Trunks. "You've become so handsome! You better be good," she said with a slight nod in Pan's direction, but nothing too obvious.

Trunks smiled as he hugged his young mother back, "I will, don't worry."

Bulma hugged Pan and Goten next. "If you hurt my baby girl. Just know that in 18 years I will be murdering you."

Goten gulped, "Yes ma'am, no worries."

Pan walked over to Trunks(p) and hugged him, whispering lightly in his ear. "Thank you. Don't forget me."

"Never," he said back softly, smiling when he sensed his future self's Ki raise, even though his outward appearance didn't change in the slightest, mask still perfectly in place. He tightened his hug on her and whispered even lower than she had, not wanting anyone but her to hear. "I'll love you always, even if I have to wait until you're 18 to tell you."

Pan smiled and pulled away from him, stepping back towards the time machine.

Bra gave a quick wink to Goten(p) who smiled in return, saddened that he would have to wait so many years before he could have her back in his life, but he was okay with waiting. She was everything to him, and he was a Saiyan. He would wait for her no matter how long it took, and she would always be his.

Bulma walked over to Vegeta(F) and placed a kiss on his cheek. "You're a good daddy," she said with a smile. "I don't know what changed you, but I can't wait for it to happen to my Veggie."

Vegeta from the past was, of course, absent from the farewell. He had said bye to Pan and Bra privately earlier in the day without anyone noticing. He knew he would grow very fond of both girls one day, but he wasn't quite ready to be that man just yet.

After the goodbyes were said and the hugs were given, they all entered Bra and Pan's time machine. It was slightly cramped, but it would do. Trunks placed the 3 bracelets inside the machine and with one final wave from everyone, the machine disappeared and they were headed home.


The moment they had rematerialized back in their own timeline, Vegeta blew the lid off of the machine and was out of the cramped space in seconds.

"Bra! Pan!" They heard Bulma yell as she rushed over to them and pulled them into a tight hug. "I was so worried we weren't going to be able to find you."

"You know I'd never let that happen," Goten said as he walked up behind Bra and put an arm around her waist.

Bulma looked between the two for a moment before looking at Vegeta who nodded and then proceeded to jump up and down and squeal about grandbabies.

"Calm down mom," Bra said with a smile.

"Pan," they heard a serious voice say. All eyes turned to Gohan, who was leaning against the wall, attempting to look patient.

Pan walked over to her dad and lowered her head, "I'm really sorry daddy, I didn't mean to worry you."

Gohan sighed and pulled Pan into a hug. "We can discuss punishment later. Right now I'm just happy that you're home and safe."

Pan smiled as she hugged her dad back. She knew everything he did was just because he cared about her, and she loved her dad more than anything – except maybe Trunks.

"Are you okay Panny?" her dad asked, noticing she looked sad.

"Huh? Oh, yeah dad, I'm fine. I guess I'm just a little saddened at what I left behind" she said as she cast a quick side look in Trunks' direction.

Gohan caught the look and sighed before whispering very lightly to his daughter. "Just remember hunny, whatever you were told in the past, our Trunks also told it to a young girl named Pan 16 years ago."

Pan looked at her dad in surprise; he knew? Did he know the extent of her feelings for Trunks this whole time, and the way her and Trunks from the past were?

She nodded her head, not really registering what her dad had actually said, she was too preoccupied trying to figure out if he knew she loved Trunks. How couldn't he know if he just told her that though?

What he had said suddenly hit her:

"Just remember hunny, whatever you were told in the past, our Trunks also told it to a young girl named Pan 16 years ago."

She suddenly recalled what he had said to her before they got into the time machine.


Pan walked over to Trunks(p) and hugged him, whispering lightly in his ear. "Thank you. Don't forget me."

"Never," he said back softly, smiling when he sensed his future self's Ki raise, even though his outward appearance didn't change in the slightest, mask still perfectly in place. He tightened his hug on her and whispered even lower than she had, not wanting anyone but her to hear. "I'll love you always, even if I have to wait until you're 18 to tell you."


Shock crossed her face, and for the second time in the past 24 hours she considered if Trunks did in fact love her back.

She supposed she would just have to wait until she was 18 to find out. But one look in his direction and at the smile he gave her, told her that no matter what type of love he was willing to give, it was enough for her.

The End!


A/N- OMG! It's over! *tear* I can't believe this story has actually come to an end! I was planning to drag it out for a few more chapter because I had plenty of ideas AND I realllly wanted to make it to 300 reviews, but I guess I can just hope that I get 18 for this chapter =P probably not going to happen, but maybe! If you're all really nice haha.

I'm jk, it's not really a big deal to me, I'm just so thankful you have all stuck by me throughout this entire story, even when I sometimes took too long to update xD.

Like I've mentioned before, I might start up "Her Dilemma" again, I think I actually really like that story, but we'll see. And I might even consider doing a sequel to this story, but I'm not sure yet. I don't know if I have enough ideas for a sequel lol. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know. I guess it would be about Trunks telling her how he feels and then their relationship... but idk what I'd actually write =P i also might do an epilogue and just end it for good there with her turning 18 and what not.. but that is undecided as well.

Oh boy, I don't wanna stop rambling, I'm sad it's over lol.

Well...I guess this is it.

Remember, it's a Fanfiction crime to read and not review :)

Thank you all again for being so wonderful!
