Chapter 2:

The Kidnapping

A/N: I want to thank my friend Lauren. She helped me when I was at a loss for ideas. If it weren't for her I wouldn't be able to write this second chapter. Sorry I didn't post this earlier, I was lazy and didn't want to type, so I asked my mom.

They watched the sunset and the stars come out. They slept together that night. The next morning they flew back to Bulma's house.

Her parents were happy to see her; they were worried when they didn't see her the day before. "It's okay mom, I was with Vegeta." "Oh Bulma-chan, I was so worried about you. Next time leave a note or something."

"I would have left a note mom but I didn't even know I was leaving until I left." "Oh, okay Bulma-chan. As long as you're safe." "I'm fine, believe me", she said with a smile and a quick glance at Vegeta. He smiled back and went outside.

Bulma went up to shower and get dressed. She grabbed a pair of shorts and t-shirt. She went into the bathroom and turned on the water. She started brushing her hair and stepped in the shower. The water was warm and relaxing. She thought about how wonderful life was. She had everything she wanted, well almost. She wanted to be married and to have kids.

She got out of the shower and got dressed. She put her hair up and brushed her teeth. She went downstairs then outside. She lay down on the soft green grass as she watched Vegeta zip through the air throwing punches at an imaginary opponent. She started to daydream about what happened the day before. It was so wonderful. She still wondered if it was a dream, but then she remembered how much it hurt when she pinched herself. She started to smile. She felt like she was flying she was so happy, she shook herself from her daze. She was flying, and then she felt Vegeta's strong arms around her waist. She looked into his eyes; he pulled her closer and kissed her gently. She smiled and just hugged him. He smiled back and thought to himself, "I love you Onna and will always love you, my Little Onna".

They soared through the clouds for hours, then stopped for a little while above an unusually fluffy looking cloud. Bulma reached down and tried to grab some but her hand went right through it. It felt so soft. She pinched herself again but this wasn't a dream either. That made her happy. She smiled and looked into Vegeta's eyes and kissed him gently. He pulled her close and kissed her again. His tongue playfully danced on her lips. She pulled him closer and allowed her own tongue to stray. She allowed him to deepen the kiss. She felt a chill rush down her spine. It was a good chill though. The kiss seemed to last forever but ended abruptly when Bulma pulled away. "Why did you do that?" "Sorry, but I don't want to do this up here. I can't fly, you know." "I know, but I wouldn't drop you so don't worry." "I can't help it. It's just a little nerve racking up here.""Ok we'll go somewhere special then." With that he flew to the island from the day before.

They spent the rest of the day there and flew back at sunset. She kissed her parents good night then laid down on the couch to watch a movie. Vegeta soon came over and joined her. She laid her head on his lap and looked up into the sweet smile on his face. He ran his fingers through her silky, soft turquoise hair. She smiled as she sat up enough to kiss him, then laid back down and went to sleep. He carried her upstairs, got her changed into her pajamas, tucked her in and kissed her good night. "Sleep well Bulma-chan."

He went to his room changed into some shorts and laid down on his bed. He started to think about Bulma, and about how he felt for her. "Why do I feel so strongly about her? I love her now and yet a week ago I hated her. I an the noble Prince of all Sayins and she is just an Earth onna. How could she be my mate? Even with this knowledge I feel a burning desire to be with her forever. Why do I feel this way?!? I would do anything for her, but why? D*mn it! I feel like she would understand me perfectly, and be

able to answer all my problems, but how? I feel connected to her in some way. Why? Father why can't you still be here for me, I need you now. Why can't we be together back on Vegeta-sei?" He started to cry, he rolled over and began pummeling his pillow, sobbing all the louder and harder.

Bulma woke up to get a drink of water and heard Vegeta crying. She went into his room to see what was wrong. "Vegeta, what's wrong?" "Go away! I can't let anyone see me like this!" He demanded in between sobs. " I can't leave Vegeta. I want to know what's wrong and do what ever I can to make it better." She walked over to the bed slowly and sat down on the edge. She ran her fingers through his hair. He sat up very suddenly and hugged her, hard and held her tight. She was startled at first then she hugged him just as hard. "I love you Bulma-chan, you know that right? I would give my life for you and your happiness." I know you love me. And I love you too. I would give my life for you and your happiness too. I just hope we don't have to give our lives for each other any time soon. Why are you saying this?" "It doesn't matter, as long as you know this, everything is fine." "What is that supposed to mean," she asked in a worried tone. "Nothing don't worry about it. Just lay her with me. I need to feel you close to me and everything will be fine." Bulma laid down next to him and held him tight. "Don't ever leave me. Promise me that," she whispered in his ear. "I won't, I promise," he answered back and kissed her lightly. She smiled and fell asleep. They laid there just holding each other all night.

The next morning he woke up and smiled at the sight of Bulma lying next to him. He kissed her then slipped out of bed carefully. He got dressed and went downstairs to eat breakfast. After he fished he went out to the gravity room to train, and to think about what happened to him last night. Training always helped to clear his thoughts. "What's going on with me? Why am I feeling these emotions? D*mn it!" He cursed as he began to train.

Inside the house Bulma was starting to wake up. She frowned when she noticed Vegeta was gone. She figured he was out training, considering he hadn't done it in awhile. She decided to take a shower. She went to her room to get some clothes and was surprised when she saw someone sitting on her bed. It took her a little while to realize who it was. "YAMCHA!" She yelled in surprise. "What are you doing here? I thought you moved in with that...... that airhead?" "I did and she wasn't an airhead," he said defensively. "Things weren't exactly working out. I figured out it's you I love, you're the one I want to be with for the rest of my life Bulma. Where were you last night that you're still in your pajamas and weren't in your room?" "It doesn't matter. WE don't go out anymore, remember! Why are you in my room anyway?" " I was hoping to be able to lay down next to you and then wake you up so we could talk about us." "Yamcha there is no more "us" and there will never be another "us" again. I don't love you anymore." "WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!"He screamed in rage. "I though we had an undying love" "WELL IT DIED WHEN YOU LEFT WITH THAT.......THAT BLONDE BIMBO, to say things nicely, 6 MONTHS AGO!" By now both of them were screaming at each other. "SHE WASN'T A BIMBO!" "WHY ARE YOU DEFENDING HER? WE BOTH KNOW SHE WAS AN IDIOT." With that Yamcha lunged for her and grabbed her throat. "VEGETA HELP ME!" She managed to scream out just before he grabbed her.

Vegeta couldn't hear through the thick walls of the gravity chamber, but something deep inside told him Bulma needed him. Within seconds he was in her room and had punched Yamcha in the face with a punch that was KI filled to the max. It sent him flying out the window. Vegeta flew out after him, but Yamcha wasn't knocked out and tried to blast Vegeta with an energy wave. It hit him but just barley, it didn't even hurt him. He turned Super Sayin and was powering up for his own attack on Yamcha when he heard Bulma yell something. "No Vegeta. Don't kill him, let him wallow in the humiliation of his defeat," Bulma yelled. "You're right Bulma. Killing him would be the nice thing to do, wouldn't it?" He powered down and flew to her. He checked if she was all right, and she said yes then he hugged her and kissed her.

Yamcha flew away screaming, "I'll be back, You'll regret this Bulma. You'll wish you would have let him kill me. You'll be sorry!"Vegeta was powering up again. "Vegeta no," Bulma said calmly. "All of us know he's absolutely no match for any Super Sayin," she said."Especially not their Prince," she added with a smile. He smiled back and hugged her tight. "Your right and no one will hurt you as long as I'm around." He kissed her once then snuggled into the curve of her neck and began kissing and nuzzling her neck. She pulled away, she didn't want to, but she did. "Why did you do that?" "I'm sorry but I need to take a shower, and so do you," she said playfully. "And what's that supposed to mean," he asked with a smile. "You stink!" She laughed as she ran into the bathroom, Vegeta was close behind her. He cornered her in the shower and kissed her. He began to slip off her pajamas while she turned on the water. The water was warm and inviting, just like her skin. They took their shower together and got dressed. They decide to have a picnic lunch, so they packed some food and went out to a park. They spent all day together, and everyday after that. They went swimming, boating, flying, (Well Vegeta flew and Bulma held on.) they went to movies and doing everything else a normal couple did. Everything was fine for the rest of the summer, until one day in the end of August.

Bulma and Vegeta were lying outside her house on the lush soft grass. When he felt it he felt a mixture of energy, both good and evil. The one that stood out was Yamcha's. Vegeta stood up and looked at her very seriously. "What's wrong, Vegeta?" "Come on, we have to go", that was all he said. "Why?!? What's wrong? Is someone coming?" "Yes, it's that stupid baka human." "Yamcha? Don't worry, he can't do anything."

"But he's not alone. I sense 2 other energies, two other evil, stronger energies." Bulma was getting scared. "Where can we go?" "Go get your parents and fly to Kakarots. I'll try and throw them off." "Please be careful. I don't know what I would do without you." "Don't worry, I'll be fine." He kissed her and turned Super Sayin then flew away.

His power level was 3/4 of what it could be. He zigzagged in every direction. He flew as fast as he could. He could feel them getting closer, his plan was working, he was now 100's of miles away from Bulma. He gave a sudden burst of power than began to lower his power level very slowly to make it seem like he was getting away. He landed on a deserted island and hid his power completely. He walked under a small rock out- cropping to hide. He felt them getting closer, until they flew overhead. He waited for an hour to make sure they were gone.

He started to fly to Goku's house hiding his energy as much as possible. Within an hour he was above Goku's and within minutes he was on the ground. Bulma had tackled him and was hugging him so hard he could barely breathe. "You're okay. Oh I'm so glad you're okay. I was so scared. I love you, I love you, I love you!!" He managed to get her off and stand up. When he looked into her eyes he saw they were filled with tears. "Why are you crying Bulma-chan?" "I was scared when you didn't come after awhile. I thought I lost you." "But you didn't did you?! I didn't even have to fight, I threw them off." She hugged him again. He took her chin into his hand and tilted her head up and kissed her ever so lightly. She went to deepen the kiss just as he pulled away, "Why did you do that?", "Sorry, but I really need to go talk to Kakerott."

Vegeta walked over to where Goku was standing. "Nice to see you're okay" Goku said casually. "Thanks for caring. Anyway, Yamcha wasn't alone." "I know, Bulma told me." "Well I think we've got our match cut out for us. They were almost as strong as the Namek and they were hiding some of their power. I don't know how strong they really are." Goku was beginning to look more and more concerned. "Do you have any idea who they are or what they look like?" "No, I didn't get a chance to look at them." "Oh...okay," Goku said in a distraught tone. "Well let's eat. I'm starving", he added in a much more upbeat tone.

Inside Chichi and Bulma's mom had made a huge dinner. They did have 3 Sayins to feed that night, after all. Dinner was much more upbeat than that afternoon. Everyone said thanks for being surrounded by all their loved ones, friends and family alike. After dinner they watched a movie, then everyone went to bed. The next day everyone woke up the wonderful smell of breakfast. Bulma and her mother had made a tremendous breakfast buffet. They all ate then went outside. After awhile everyone said their good-byes then left.

Suddenly Vegeta and Goku looked up at the sky. "Did you feel that Kakarot?" "Yeah," he answered in a worried voice. "Everyone inside. Now!" "Gohan keep your power level hidden", Goku instructed. "But dad, I want to help." "No! Gohan do as I said. NOW!" Gohan did as he was told. In ten minutes Yamcha was standing in front of them. "I told you I would be back. Now, get out of my way! Where's Bulma?! Bulma, come out, come out, where ever you are!" "You won't get to her", Vegeta snarled. "You can't stop me. You'll be too busy with my friends over there", Yamcha said with a jerk of his head in the direction of two rather large dark shadows. Out stepped two very large strong looking people. Vegeta and Goku stepped back in surprise at the sight of them. "I thought these two were dead, I killed Nappa and the Namek killed Raditz," Vegeta managed to say. "They were. Then I used a dragon ball to wish them back and they're stronger than ever" Yamcha said smugly. "Well they can't be any match for two Super Sayins." With that, Goku and Vegeta turned Super Sayin. "You'd be surprised", Yamcha said. Then Nappa and Raditz just laughed. In what seemed like seconds, Nappa and Raditz were flying towards Goku and Vegeta.

Goku looked at Vegeta and nodded. Vegeta nodded back and they powered up even more and flew at Nappa and Raditz. They crashed with a massive energy wave, Vegeta started punching and kicking wildly but to no avail. Raditz was too fast and blocked every one of Vegeta's blows. Raditz punched Vegeta in the face and sent him flying. Vegeta caught himself and blasted Raditz. It barely even scratched him. "What the HELL!" Vegeta powered up to Super Sayin x's 2 then lunged for Raditz. Every punch and kick connecting this time. He blasted him again and this time it blew him into the ocean. Then he flew to Yamcha but Raditz was back and tackled him from behind. Yamcha laughed. Raditz and Vegeta continued to fight. Goku was doing decent towards Nappa but then Nappa sent a blast at him. Goku just barely dodging it, he powered up to Super Sayin x's 2 and added the Kao-Ken attack for good measure. He went back after Nappa. This time he landed every punch, every kick. He tried the Kha-me-ha-me-ha attack, it connected. Nappa went flying. Goku went to get Raditz. Him and Vegeta continued to fight, trying their hardest to watch Yamcha at the same time.

Nappa got up and went after Goku. Nappa was trying his hardest to hit Goku, but he blocked all his hits. Goku lost concentration when he saw Yamcha near the house. In that second Nappa hit him. That punch sent Goku flying. A second later Raditz had done the same thing to Vegeta. "Good job boys. Keep them occupied." Yamcha said as he cheered them on. Those four continued to fight as Yamcha neared the house. "Bulma, I know you're in there. Come out, come out where ever you are." He waited for an answer and when no response came he got angry. "I'll get you no matter what, so make it easy for everyone and come out now." Still no response. "Fine have it your way I'll just blow up the whole d*mn house then. You should have saved your friend's and family's lives."

Inside Gohan was getting angry, he was starting to power up. "Gohan you are not going out there, I forbid it," ChiChi commanded. "But mom Dad and Vegeta need me." "They're both grown men, and whole lot stronger than you are, they can handle themselves. Besides your father and I forbade you to go." "Your mom's right Gohan. This has nothing to do with any of you. I'm sorry Vegeta and me ever dragged you in to this. This is our war and we're going to fight it." "No Bulma, it's our war too, and it does have a lot to do with us. You and Vegeta are our friends and we love you. Well you a little more than Vegeta. We wouldn't want anything to happen to either of you." ChiChi said with a smile. "Thanks ChiChi, but I'm going out there. I'm not sure if he was bluffing when he said he would blow up the house." "Bulma-chan no. Please don't go," Bulma's mother pleaded. "I have to mom. I love you mom, I love you dad." She gave them both a hug and a kiss. She hugged ChiChi and Gohan, and told them thanks for all they had done for her. "If I never see any of you again, I just want you to know I love you, and I'm sorry."They all started to cry.

"B-Bulma.....p-please...." They all pleaded. Bulma just stood up and said one last good-bye and walked outside. "Yamcha this is between you, Vegeta and me, so leave them out of this!" Bulma growled at him. "Oh it's a little too late for that don't you think?" He said with a sneer. He flew at her and grabbed her. Pulling a section of rope out of his pocket he tied her up. He took off his bandana and gagged her with it. "There's no use trying to scream." He flew right by Vegeta and with a glint in his eyes said, "Hey Vegeta, look familiar? I might give it back, I might not. I don't know yet." With that he flew away, Nappa and Raditz close behind.
