"...and that's the whole story," Murray finished telling Vegeta and Piccolo about Flute and how
he kidnapped Lira.
"Don't worry Murray, we'll bring her back without any harm done to her," Piccolo reassured the
"Although I won't be able to say the same for that Flute character, or his soldiers," Vegeta added
with a smirk while Piccolo nodded his head in agreement.
The two then left in a Namekian spaceship that had enhanced speed due to the last wish of the
dragaonballs back on Earth. The two Z Warriors didn't speak much to each other, besides some
idle chit-chat about the ship and such. In a few hours Flute's ship was in sight. They easily
caught up to it, and using a teleporter Bulma had invented, zapped themselves into the heart of
the ship. Piccolo and Vegeta stormed into the command room simply blasted all the soldiers there
to the next dimension.
"Ah, I figured that Murray would probably get help to save his daughter," Flute said turning his
"So your the bastard that kidnapped Lira," Vegeta said, "well, I'll be sure to give you a slow
'Piccolo, wait,' a voice in his head called out. It was Nail. 'What is it?' he said back. 'I want to
say something to my father, please let me take over real quick.' 'Fine, make it quick though, we
have to save Lira.'
"Father," Piccolo's body began with Nails voice.
"Yes, it is me father. Long ago, I fused with Piccolo to make him stronger during the fight with
Freiza. I just wanted to tell you that you have disgraced the Namekian name and you will pay for
taking my love away from me. You see, even though Piccolo has fallen in love with Lira, I have
"If your finished with your speech, I would like to kill this guy now," Vegeta said while
impatiently tapping his foot. Nail went back and Piccolo took over once again. He ran out of the
room and went in search of the faint ki he knew belonged to the woman he loved. He traced it
back to a small room in the bottom of the ship and blasted through the door. The sight he saw
made his blood boil. Lira lay tied to the bed, top ripped in shreads and pants thrown on the floor,
crying, as Mardo was above her, harshly kissing her while roughly running his hands over her
exposed breasts. Piccolo let out a roar of pure rage and distracted the evil soldier from raping the
girl any farther. Mardo got up and walked in front of Piccolo.
"I'd better make this quick, wouldn't want to keep my little whore waiting," Mardo said.
"You won't be doing another thing to her once I'm finished with you," Piccolo said as a bright
aura surrounded him and he crouched into a fighting stance. Mardo also got into a fighting stance
and the two men went at it. Although one could say Mardo was strong it would be nothing
compared to Piccolo's strength. The rage from seeing Lira combined with Nail's own rage sent
his power skyrocketing. Piccolo charged at Mardo with such rage and fury the soldier had no
time to react and was slammed against the wall. Piccolo then began to mercilessly knee him in the
stomach several times. He then held the man by the neck as he punched him in the face like there
was no tomorrow. After he was finished doing this, he threw Mardo on the floor and with a ki
blast sent him to roast in the pits of hell. He walked over to Lira who was still crying, blasted
right through the ropes not even bothering to undo the knots, took of his cape, and wrapped his
poor love in it and picked her up carrying her back to Vegeta.
"P..Piccolo, I was su..such a fool. I sh..shouldn't have left you. Wh..Why did you come to save
"Don't be silly, I was the fool. I should never have said those things. I came to save you because
I, we, love you."
"We?," she asked confused.
"Yes we. There is Vegeta who loves you like a sister, and me and Nail, who love you more than
"Nail, what does he got to do with this?" Lira said confused.
"Well, if I would have known that you and him were once betrothed then I would have told you.
Before he died when Freiza attacked, he fused with me to make me stronger. And along with
myself, he loves you too." Piccolo waited for a few seconds but heard no reply. He looked down
to see that Lira was fast asleep with a small smile tugging at the corners of her lips.
'I wonder what she is smiling at.' 'Probably because she now has two lovers combined into one'
Nail replied. 'You know, that could be interesting' Piccolo thought while his counterpart agreed
with him. He got back just as Vegeta was giving his finishing touches on Flute.
"That was long, you really did ensure him a slow and painful death," Piccolo said with a smirk.
"I like to keep my word," Vegeta smirked back. Although both Z Warriors were too proud to
admit it, they both had new found respect for some newly discovered things they had in common:
they were merciless when it came to killing those evil, they both cared deeply about the woman
cradled in Piccolo's arms (even though it's in two different ways), and their attitude was
alarmingly similar; liked to train, somewhat grouchy, didn't like to be found weak, among others.
They teleported back to their ship and went back to New Namek first. There they told Murray
that Lira was safe, and headed back to Earth. On the ship, Lira got cleaned up, and Piccolo
zapped her a ki outfit similar to his, complete with weighted cape and instead of a turban, she
requested a long strip of material she could simply tie around her head and let the ends hang down
on one side. They got back to Earth, and a feast was thrown, by compliments of Mrs. Briefs and
Chi Chi as the chefs, for the rescue of Lira. Afterwards, Lira and Piccolo headed home (to
They landed and talked a while with Dende and Mr. Popo before heading to Piccolo's room.
They got inside and locked the door (I'll leave the rest up to the imagination ;])
That morning, Dende and Mr. Popo were sitting down at the table (Dende drinking water and Mr.
Popo eating breakfast) when Lira and Piccolo walked in. Dende hitched his eyebrow when he
noticed a mark on the side of Lira's neck and looked at Piccolo.
'It's none of your damned business' Piccolo mouthed and Dende simply smirked.
I really hope you all enjoyed the story. I got the idea of a female Namek from a story I read ages ago which I have not been able to find again. Please review with your final thoughts!
