Gohan stood speechless at the end of the red carpet which led to the front of the altar where Princess Snake waited anxiously. He felt the stare of all the servants pierce into his very soul with unbound lust. Slowly, Gohan walked forward figuring that if he turned and ran something very bad would occur. As he approached the altar he wasn't sure whether to be shocked by the fact that Princess Snake had chosen Nina to be her maid of honour.

"I'm glad you could make it," said the princess with a devoted smile. "I was afraid you wouldn't come."

"Did I have a choice in the matter?" asked Gohan which caused the princess to smirk slightly.

"In all honesty the moment you stepped into my palace you were never going to leave," she said in a tone which Gohan could only make out as sinister. However she had played into his trap.

"So you are admitting that this is your palace and not King Kai's?"

Princess Snake was taken back a bit; this is not what she had been expecting. She had expected for Gohan to grovel and beg to marry her but her charm just hadn't washed off on him as much as she would have liked. Trying to work the situation to her advantage she replied, "Is it wrong for me to have lied to you?" Her tone had changed three times in the short conversation from nice, to sinister and now it was downright sultry.

Gohan shifted his weight as the Princess leaned in towards him and his eyes shifted to Nina who was looking away from the whole situation. Turning his attention back to the matter at hand he said, "For a relationship to work there has to be trust and by having lied to me this whole time I cannot trust you at the moment."

He hoped this statement would strike a nerve but instead the princess just batted her eyelashes a few times and moved in closer so that their noses were nearly touching. "Trust can be rebuilt and we have all the time in the world," she said. Before Gohan could react the Princess lunged forth and attached her lips to his in a one way passionate kiss. In the brief moment of this kiss she exhaled a golden mist straight into Gohan's mouth.

They split and Gohan tried to figure out what had just happened as the princes smiled wickedly. The air she had exhaled contained an aphrodisiac property and within a minute Gohan would devote his utter love and devotion to her. However a minute passed and nothing of the sort had occurred. They had remained silent and Gohan had shaken his head a few times as he tried to figure out what had occurred but nothing much occurred.

"How are you feeling my darling?" she cooed.

"I don't know what to think at the moment, could I just be left alone for a few minutes?" he asked.

"But of course, anything for my future husband," she said and she had Nina escort him out of the room, the door closing behind them.

As soon as the door had sealed shut a loud murmur could be heard from the inside giving Gohan time to act. Nina walked over to a nearby pot plant and pulled out Gohan's battle worn clothes. Knowing what the princess had had planned for the poor boy, not to mention that she couldn't stand not being permitted to love Gohan herself, Nina had broken all the rules and had warned Gohan the previous night of the princess' plan and thus had given him a drug which would render the princess' breath ineffective.

"Thank you for everything Nina," he said as he quickly removed the suit which prevented his breathing ability.

Nina looked away as Gohan removed his pants. "I know I'm doing this out of jealousy but I also believe it is the right thing," she said softly. "You're a person who shouldn't be tied down to a single area."

"Thank you for being so considerate," he said as she turned to face him fully clothed.

"You're going to have to knock me out in order to make your escape look believable," Nina said with a tear rolling down her eye as Gohan nodded in agreement. "Please do it quickly and don't come back."

Gohan walked forward and Nina closed her eyes expecting the worst, however instead of everything fading to black she felt a moist sensation on her lips as Gohan planted a kiss on her. It lasted for no more than two seconds but there was vivid smile on Nina's lips as they parted. Swiftly, Gohan chopped lightly at Nina's neck and the girl collapsed into him and he gently laid her on the ground. Sound was still coming from inside the room which meant that they hadn't noticed what had just occurred.

With a flash of golden light, Gohan turned Super Saiyan and fired a small blast at the wall. Screams could be heard all around him as light pierced the hole which had emerged. From what Nina had told him, he was trapped within the body of a snake and the princess and her subjects were images implanted into his mind so that he would believe that everything was going to be alright.

The door burst open and Gohan saw a very vicious princess who was shouting rude and obnoxious words in his direction. Gohan took no heed of it and paid attention to the hole in front of him to find that the wall was slowly rebuilding itself, meaning that the snake was regenerating its outer skin.

In a flash of golden light, Gohan flew out of the tiny hole and into the open air. He turned to see a very big and very pissed off snake staring intently at him. Before anything else could be done, Gohan flew off at a speed that the snake couldn't even keep up with and he escaped the prison that had had him entrapped for a week. As he flew, he could make out the image of King Kai's planet in the distance and was happy to have finally reached his destination.

I don't know why but I decided to finish this, it seemed like an ideal time to close the lid on this story. Hope everyone enjoyed it and here's hoping that I can finish a few more stories.
