Chapter 1: The Sparring Session and the Father Son Talk.

Some of my ideas were inspired by a story written by Razamataz22. Check out his stories when you get a chance. This is my first story, I hope you enjoy it.

It's been 1 year since the evil Majin Buu ravaged the earth, and since the battle with Hirudegarn (See: DBZ: Wrath of the Dragon). Life on earth has once again become peaceful. It's about 6:00 AM on a Saturday, if quiet enough, the sounds of Goten and Trunks sparring can be heard in the the mountains around Goku's house. Trunks is now 9 years old, and Goten is 8 years old. They are both a little taller, Trunks hasn't had a hair cut in a few months, and Goten's hair is just a little longer than Gohan's was when he fought cell. They've gotton much stronger since the days of the Evil Majin Buu. Trunks is beginning to take on characteristics of his future counterpart, and Goten's appetite is continuously growing, sometimes even out eating his Father at the dinner table. Goku, wakes up around 6:30 AM to eat breakfast, then sets off to watch Goten and Trunks train. Goku's thoughts wander as he watches the trees and the grasses. He decides to take a swim on his way to the battle ground. His thoughts wind up to Gohan. Gosh, Gohan just hasn't been himself lately. It's probably about that Videl girl that he hangs out with. Hmm... He breaks from this thought upon arriving on a cliff above where Goten and Trunks are training.

"Wow, they've been at it for three hours straight and neither of them have broken a sweat." said Goku.

He was astonished, the boys were battling in mid air, punches and kicks being fired out of Goten and Trunks' bodies. Goten released a wild kick that just barely misses Trunks, leaving Goten off guard. With that, Trunks clamps his hands together and delivers a wild blow to Goten's stomach. Then, not releasing his grip, smashes Goten in the back, sending him flying into the ground.

"Well Goten, that's the third time you've tried that kick, and the third time I've countered it. Why don't you try something else?" shouted Trunks

"Alright then, I will! Just remember, you asked for it." Replied Goten.

"Quit talking and proove it"

"Alright, here I come!"

Trunks in a thought to himself, Yeah, okay Goten, what ever you've come up with, I'll still counter it, just you watch, as Goten flys toward him. Trunks gets ready to throw a punch, but Goten speeds around to the back of Trunks, but Trunks is quick to turn around and kick Goten up higher into the air. Goten stops and a smirk grows across his face. Then, he begins to charge down at Trunks. As Goten rushes back toward Trunks, Trunks notices that Goten is getting ready to try the same kick again, as a puzzled Goku watches. Okay Goten, I know you're smarter than that, what have you got in store? Goten fires off the kick and it is once again dodged by Trunks, then Trunks goes for the same counter as before, only this time, Goten leaves a phantom like image behind instead of himself. Trunks becomes confused. Goku, lost in thought, Ahh, the afterimage technique. Trunks looks in every direction, but can't seem to spot Goten, but Goku knows exactly where he is.

"Look out below!" Yelled Goten from above.

"What!" Said a startled Trunks as he looks up, but it is too late, Goten delivers an elbow to Trunks' head, sending him flying into the ground.

Wow, that was different, smart kid. Trunks thought to himself. Better keep my eye on him.

Goten pulled his arms to his sides and cuped his hands.

"Kaaa... Meeee... Haaaaaa... Meeee..." Goten uttered these words while gathering up Ki. After a few seconds, the Ki energy started to form into a blueish colored orb of light.

Trunks smirked as he watched. "I hope you know that this isn't going to work Goten!"

"Oh yeah, we'll see about that, HAAA!" Goten yelled, as he thrusts his hands forward and fires the blast at Trunks. Trunks jumped up out of the way, but was too slow to realize that Goten has rushed behind him, and in no time, Goten had Trunks in a Full Nelson.

"Wow, incredible, I guess all of that training has paid off!" Said Goku, impressed by his son's maneuver. Gohan is now awake and joins his Father on the cliff side.

"Morning Dad," He said... "Wow, these boys are really tearing it up out there."

"Yeah, it's crazy, I haven't enjoyed watching a fight like this in a long time, hey son, don't you have school today?"

"Yeah." Gohan said in a sad tone.

"You sound depressed, want to talk about it?"

"Not really."

"It's about Videl, right? Something is wrong. Hmm, now just stand still..."

"Umm, Dad?" Gohan asked confused,

"Just a second Gohan." his father said as his he walked around him, scanning him over.

"Well, this is the interpretation I get. You're in love with Videl, but you're afraid to admit it to her, and I bet she feels the same way about you."

"Well, how do you figure that?" Gohan asked with increasing interest.

"Don't worry about it just yet Gohan, come on, kick back and enjoy the show." Goku smiled at Gohan, then looked back out to the battle between friends. Gohan wanted to ask him more, but figured that his father was right, then he looked out to the battle as well. Goten still had the Full Nelson locked on Trunks and Trunks' temper began to boil. He is struggled to escape but Goten's lock is so tight that Trunks began to lose consciousness.

"Well Trunks, this is payback time." Said Goten with a sarcastic tone.

Trunks completley confused, "What do you mean payback time."

"Don't give me that, you know, the World Marital Arts Tournament. This is the same thing that you did to me."

"Oh really? Well if that's the case, then I'll just escape the same way you did."

Goten puzzled "What?"

Trunks began to build up his power and started to yell. A golden aura begun to surround him, "Now it's time Goten" Trunks says as Goten was struggling to keep the hold. Trunks' long hair becomes spikey and stands up and outward and becomes golden, and his eyes become turquoise blue, his muscles bulge slightly, and the golden aura flashes and lights up the mountains. Trunks breaks the hold, turns around and punches Goten in the face, knocking him to the ground. Trunks lands a few feet away from Goten.

"Hey bud, you okay? I didn't mean to hit you that hard."

"Yeah, I'm fine. I thought we agreed not to go Super Saiyan during our training."

"Yeah well, I guess when you put me in the same situation that I put you in at the championships, it's only fair to do what you did to me Goten."

"Yeah, I guess you're right."

Trunks extended his hand to Goten to help him up, then Trunks went back to his base form. Back on the cliff, Gohan watched them with a puzzled look on his face. Goku looked at his son with concern.

"Hey, Gohan, whats up? Still thinking about Videl?"

"No, It's just that I've never seen Trunks act like this. He's becoming more friendly."

Goku lightened up. "Yeah, it's quite a change. He is becoming more like our friend from the future."

"Yeah, I can tell. It's nice to see." Trunks and Goten high five and begin working their way up to the cliff.

"So Dad, want to eat breakfast before I leave for school?" Asks Gohan, expecting a huge yes from his bottomless pit of a father.

"No thanks son, I'm stuffed." Goku sayed as he pats his stomach with joy.

"Dad, you can't be serious, since when are you EVER full!"

"Since I got up this morning, I already ate, I'm surprised that Chi Chi hasn't screamed yet, there is a stack of dishes about as tall as the ceiling in the kitchen." From a distance, Chi Chi's voice can be heard, and shaking the ground.


Gohan covered his ears to block out the screeching noise, as Goku just stood there smiling. "Yep, that's your mother for you Gohan." Goten and Trunks made it up to the cliff and greet the duo, and questioned why Chi Chi was yelling at Goku. "Oh, Don't worry about it guys..." Goku says, "You'll find out when we get back to the house. I say, we fly slowly to buy some time, maybe she'll have calmed down by then." Everyone agreed and with that, they all flew off toward home.

It looks like Gohan is having Girl Problems, and it also looks like Goku is in deep trouble. We will find out :]
