A/N: I don't even know how to begin. First of all, this is my longest chapter for any of my stories to date. I apologise that it's taken so long for this update to come.
I really do hope you enjoy this. I've tried to make it extra dramatic and fun because I owe you guys. I'll talk more later. Have fun! :)
~*Befriending Gohan Son*~
Chapter 8: Surprise!
"Morning, Trunks," Gohan said as Trunks emerged from the Capsule Corps. building. They flew to school in companionable silence. School was going well for them. Or for Trunks. He was insanely popular, having beaten up three of the school's 'toughest' bullies. Gohan, however, really didn't want to be the centre of attention and/or labeled anymore of a weirdo than he already was. Trunks had continuously tried to convince him that if he knocked some sense into those bullies he would kill two birds with one stone; he'd become popular and he would stop the a**holes from bugging him. Of course, Gohan ignored him and Trunks ended up having to teach the idiots a thing or two as they spat insulting names and threats at the both of them.
But Trunks had a brilliant idea on how to get Gohan to come out of his shell.
As far as their super hero aliases were concerned, however, it had been a quiet week. But with all the extra free time, Gohan and Trunks put in double the effort for training. They often hung around Gohan's house and trained around the mountains; the only place that could handle their ever growing energy levels. They fought in Super Saiyan 2 for as long as possible, but eventually they would tire, or one of them would be knocked into unconsciousness.
Eventually, they had their lives running like clockwork; get woken up by a chibi, go to school, be bored to HFIL, hang out with Erasa and Sharpner, Trunks would taunt some big muscled bully, Gohan would try and placate him, the jock wouldn't buy it and threaten to kill both of them, Trunks would end it, at Gohan's continuously muttered threats, they would avoid mobs of fangirls, eat lunch, go to Gohan's house, train for an hour, eat dinner, train some more and finally go home. It was a comfortable schedule.
The second week after Videl's incapacitation was different though, as both Gold Fighters were swamped with an increase in criminal activity; once word got out that Videl was out of action and the police had no idea how to reach the Gold Fighters, lootings, felonies and assorted offenses doubled. Trunks and Gohan tried to stop crime when they saw it, but without Videl to alert them, they had no other option than to do what they could when they saw it; after all they couldn't patrol the skies over Satan City 24/7.
After a hectic Videl-less week, they eventually arrived at school, touching down on the roof. They made their way to the classroom, on time and before the bell. They took their seats next to Erasa and greeted their friends.
"Hey, Videl, good to see you're back," Gohan said with a grin.
"Thanks, Gohan," Videl smiled back, "how has your week been?"
"Good, I guess,"
"Has anyone been picking on you, 'cause I'll beat them up if they have," Videl offered generously, remembering the incident on Mirai's first day.
"Nah; they mostly stay away unless they want a face full of Mirai's fist,"
"Yeah, Videl, that guy's got a mean right hook," Sharpner agreed, having seen Mirai first hand.
"Really? We should spar some time, then," Videl suggested.
"If you feel up to it," Mirai shrugged.
"I feel 100% thank you,"
"Good, because I have a treat for you, Gohan and Sharpner today," Mirai grinned deviously.
"What about me?" Erasa pouted.
Mirai chuckled, "Sorry, Erasa, but I doubt you'll enjoy it as much as those guys," Erasa pouted again, "I'll make it up to you sometime," Mirai offered.
"I'll hold you to it," Erasa said with a wink, completely mollified. Mirai laughed as the teacher walked in.
"Class, I have a special announcement," The teacher called out, "Those of you who have PE in the last two periods will have a special martial arts lesson instead,"
This caused a surprising amount of cheering. Most of the people in this class actually enjoyed martial arts or fighting as there were a lot of students who were members of Satan Gym and various other local fitness centres.
Gohan paled. He turned to Trunks, "You didn't,"
"All will be revealed," Trunks said cryptically, his sagely appearance broken by his fit of laughter at Gohan's face; it was a mix of fear, anger and dread. But mostly anger.
Gohan spent the rest of the day trying to get Trunks to tell him what was up, but they were in the middle of class, so the teacher always shush-ed him. When lunchtime rolled around, Gohan was planning to get some answers, but Videl was called to stop a hijacking. Gohan split himself into two, as did Trunks, who learnt the trick in a matter of hours. They pressed the buttons on their watches, Gohan's Christmas themed superhero suit appearing and Trunks' normal looking attire materializing. He made sure his sword was strapped tight around his chest, then they both ascended to Super Saiyan and took off after Videl.
They arrived at the scene and, as usual, let Videl do her thing. She fought valiantly against three hijackers, but was so engrossed in the combat, she forgot that the bus was speeding towards the edge of a cliff.
"I reckon we should pop the tires with ki blasts," Trunks suggested as they watched the bus from their floating positions.
"Nah, it'll skid, I reckon we should jump in front of it," Gohan replied.
"Are you kidding? Look how fast it's going; if you do that, the people in there will get massive whiplash, assuming their heads don't fall off and their necks don't snap,"
"How about we..."
"Catch it, since it's already gone over the edge," Gohan dived under the bus and caught it easily and floating it back to the safety of solid ground.
Trunks, meanwhile flew into the bus. He checked the gears and pedals, saw that they were jammed and ripped them from the floor to stop the bus' tires from spinning. This done, Gohan could place the bus down easily without it driving away again.
"H-h-how are we floating?" one of the passengers asked. It was obvious the lady was about to collapse from shock.
"My friend in carrying it," Trunks answered easily.
"How did you pull the breaks off the bus?" another asked.
Trunks shrugged, "I guess I'm strong like that. How are you holding up, there, Miss Satan?" Trunks asked, seeing Videl comforting a small child. Before she would have freaked out that they were all going to die, but she had steadily grown to rely on the Gold Fighters to show up.
"I'm doing okay, I guess, Great Saiyaman," Trunks groaned at the name.
"Don't call me that,"
"I guess I'll just call you Trunks, then…" Trunks froze; had she found out his identity, "…Since that's what you told Erasa to call you," Oh yeah; he had nearly forgotten about that.
"Right. You can call me that," He nodded as he felt the bus touch down softly on the ground. He picked up the three unconscious bodies of the hijackers and leapt through one of the broken windows. He placed the bodies on the ground in a heap before the police.
"Thank you, Great Saiyaman and Gold Fighter," The police said.
"That's okay, we're happy to help," Gohan replied, coming up behind Trunks.
"Before you go, we'd like to give you these badges and ear pieces," The Chief of Police held out two identical sets.
"What for?" Gohan asked, genuinely surprised.
"So that we can contact you if a crime that we can't handle comes up, as we do with Videl," The Chief explained. Videl came up, responding to the sound of her name.
"Isn't it a bit irresponsible to entrust the protecting of the city to three teens?" Trunks asked; he really didn't like the police force. He was fine with helping them out now and then, but these guys were really pathetic.
The Chief looked slightly ashamed, "I'm sorry, you're right. We shouldn't put so much responsibility on you guys, but you've been a big help. There are some privileges that come with this, too," The Chief offered hopefully, "They give you access to lots of different Government buildings since these badges are for only for protectors of the city, you'd be invited to attend special ceremonies and banquets…"
Gohan, feeling sorry for the man; after all it wasn't his fault he was only human, accepted the earpiece and badge with thanks. Trunks followed suit, not really caring. They were about to take off for school, when Videl spoke,
"Hey, Gold Fighter, can I talk to you for a minute?" She asked, but it sounded more like a demand.
"Sure, Miss Videl," Videl led him to one side, away from Trunks, though, unbeknownst to her, Trunks could still easily hear their conversation with his Saiyan hearing.
"Ummmm…" Videl began, her previous bravado dissipating, "Well…it's just that…." Videl began to blush and stutter.
"Is there something wrong?" Gohan asked obliviously.
"No, no, just my friend, Erasa, do you remember her? Yeah well, she's kinda got a…well you know…she's…" Videl sucked in a deep breath, "She's got a crush on the Great Saiyaman – uh, I mean Trunks,"
"Really, now?" Gohan asked, obviously amused.
"Don't make fun of her," Videl pointed a warning finger at him.
"I wouldn't dream of it. In fact," Gohan went on, knowing full well that Trunks was within earshot, "I think they'd make a great couple. We should set them up,"
"Excuse me, but would either of you like to discuss this with me?" Trunks asked, stepping in.
"Uhh…" Videl fought off a blush, embarrassed at being caught.
"Sorry, Miss Videl, but I can't go out with Erasa," Trunks said.
"Why not?" Videl asked, offended on behalf of her friend.
"Well, the most important reason is that no matter where we went we'd be hounded by the media or reporters," Trunks reasoned.
"Can't you wear a hat?"
"Honestly, no," Gohan had tried that once while in supersaiyan form. The hat caught fire. He didn't try again.
"But then how do you guys go out during the day? Don't you have, like, secret identities or something?"
"Then she can go out with you!"
Trunks smirked, a crafty plan forming, "How about this; if Erasa can find out my secret identity and tell me who it is, then I'll go out with her. If you can find out the Gold Fighter's he'll go out with you. One guess only,"
Videl vehemently denied that she had feelings for the Gold Fighter, but vowed that she would unmask him all the same, though she claimed it was just because she was curious. Gohan shot Trunks a half hearted glare, but said nothing.
"Work hard, then, Miss Videl," Trunks said and flew back towards Orange Star High. Gohan sighed and did the same, waving goodbye to Videl, who stood and watched them leave.
When they got back to school, lunch was over. Gohan and Trunks fused back with their splitselves and made their way to the gym. Videl arrived two minutes before the bell for the start of class rang.
"Hey, Videl, did you ask?" Erasa poked Videl in the arm.
"Yeah I asked. They said that we have to guess their identities. If we get it right, then we can go out with them,"
"Oooh, a double date! I'm excited!" Erasa squealed softly, as not to be overheard by the rest of the class.
"Don't go planning your outfit yet; how are supposed to guess who they are?"
"Easy; I'm sure it's someone we know,"
"How do you figure?"
"Well, it's obvious the Gold Fighter likes you; since he only shows up whenever you're around, I know this because he didn't turn up those weeks you were stuck in your room, so he wouldn't make it impossible. He would give us a fighting chance, Videl, have a bit more faith," Erasa and Videl became quiet when the instructors appeared.
"Hi there, students, I'm Krillin Chestnut, the new Turtle Hermit" the bald man waved and grinned at the highschool seniors.
"And I'm Yamcha," the man with dark hair also waved to the class.
"You invited both of them? Why not invite the whole gang?" Gohan muttered to Trunks sarcastically.
"I did, but Tien and Chaotzu didn't want to come to a school, Piccolo gave me that are-you-crazy look, I didn't ask my dad, for obvious reasons, your dad isn't here, do you really want me to ask Roshi into a school full of teenage girls and 18 had to look after Marron," Gohan gave Trunks and incredulous look.
The class, oblivious to the two murmuring demi-Saiyans, stared in awe at Yamcha and Krillin.
"Wow! The Bandit, the famous baseball player!"
"Can I have your autograph?"
"The Bandit does martial arts?"
"I've heard of the Turtle Hermit, he's a famous martial artist!"
"I can't believe you guys are here, at our school!"
Krillin calmed the class down, "We're here because Tru-" Trunks stepped up gave Krillin a painful nudge with his elbow, "I mean Mirai, invited us,"
"Wow, Mirai, you know the Bandit?!"
"You know the Turtle Hermit?!"
Trunks grinned, "I told you I did martial arts,"
"Hey where…Ah, there you are!" Yamcha said, spotting Gohan at the back of the class. He knew hiding was no use, but couldn't help but try.
"Gohan! Come up here, too" Yamcha invited.
Gohan walked up to his friends, "So how have you been, anyway?" He asked.
"Same ol' same ol' I guess. Puar's been bugging me to…"
"You guys know that nerd?" A random voice asked.
"You mean Gohan? Your mum's been making you study, huh?" Krillin asked with a grin, elbowing Gohan.
"Don't ask; it's a nightmare. She's always making me study,"
Krillin chuckled, "Okay, class, today we'll be teaching you the basics of martial arts and the Turtle Hermit style,"
The class, still shocked that the quiet, nerdy Gohan knew two legendary martial artists, waited quietly for Krilin and Yamcha to place them in groups.
Krillin divided them according to their ki signals. There were three groups: weakest, not as weak and strong for a normal human.
"Okay, I've put you into groups depending on your strength. Now, who here as done any martial arts or form of fighting?"
Most of the fifteen people in the strong-for-a-normal-human group put their hands up, including Videl and Sharpner.
Krillin nodded to himself, "As I suspected,"
"Okay, well, I'll take that group over there," Yamcha said, indicating towards the group of weakest students.
"Then I'll take that one," Krillin said pointing to the next weakest group.
"What? We don't get to be trained?" Videl asked in annoyance.
"Of course you do, you guys get the best fighters here," Krillin replied, pointing towards Gohan and Mirai.
"Krillin! This is your class, you lazy…" Gohan was cut off by a shouting voice,
"I bet that nerd's never actually fought!"
"Yeah, he's probably read about it in a text book!"
"Let's see a real fight!"
Krillin, compliantly set up a match. Firstly, him against Mirai.
"Okay, you guys, watch closely," Yamcha said, acting as commentator, "Notice Krilin's stance; developed for his smaller stature. Mirai's stance is made for the offensive. Okay, ready? Start!" Yamcha called.
Krillin went first, charging at Mirai. Mirai blocked Krillin's kick to the head with his arm and attempted to catch Krillin's foot. Krillin, seeing this, struck out with a punch to the head, which Mirai ducked under. He countered with a kick to Krillin's head, which resulted in Krillin leaping up and lashing out with his fists. Mirai dodged a flurry of attacks faster than the eye could see and caught Krillin's foot as he took a step back. He tossed Krillin across the gym easily, though Krillin landed in a crouch. He grinned and charged again.
The class watched the exchange in awe. They moved with speed and precision, most not being able to keep track. Videl was amazed as well; she had never seen such skilled fighting. She was even more astounded that Mirai had the upper hand. He swatted the Turtle Hermit away easily, barely breaking a sweat as he dodged and reciprocated. Eventually, after Krillin received a nasty looking kick to the head, The Bandit stopped the match.
"Okay, do you guys get the picture?" The class cheered wildly for Mirai, who took it with a gracious smile.
"Mirai, you're the best!" one girl screamed.
"Mirai's almost as strong as Mr. Satan!"
"Mirai, will you go out with me?!"
The Bandit gestured for the class to quiet down, "Now you guys are going to get to see a real treat," Yamcha gestured to Gohan to get ready, "Gohan Vs Mirai,"
"Do I have too?" Gohan asked, though most didn't blame him. Many pitied him with cries of,
"Go easy on him, Mirai!"
"Good luck, Gohan, you're going to need it!"
Gohan, exasperated, stood stock still after being goaded into the marked-out circle. He's going to get pretty hurt if Mirai can't control his punches. Videl thought.
"You gonna get into a stance, Gohan?" The Bandit asked.
"I don't want to fight," Gohan replied.
"He'll loosen up, don't worry," Mirai reassured the Bandit.
"Your call, Mirai. Okay, Gohan ready?" At a nonchalant shrug from Gohan, the match began. Mirai rushed at Gohan, aiming a flurry of punches and kicks at Gohan's head. Miraculously, Gohan dodged each one. He took a step back, left, then right, ducking and jumping back before any of Mirai's blows landed. The class watched in awed silence.
Mirai grinned and began to strike faster, his motions a blur. Gohan, no longer able to avoid by merely dodging, began to block. He grunted at the impact of a particularly vicious punch and caught the fist. He threw Mirai back a couple of metres, watching him flip and land gracefully in a slight crouch.
Mirai was about to launch at Gohan, when Videl shouted Gohan's name very loudly. Mirai and Gohan turned to look at her, Krillin stepped in, ignoring her outburst.
"I think you get the point," Krillin began, but then the four of them; Gohan, Mirai, the Bandit and Krillin snapped their heads towards the sky, all four focusing on some point out in the distance.
Videl watched stunned as Gohan and Mirai fought. Gohan dodged with speed and grace that just weren't physically possible. "It's him," she whispered. It all made sense now…wait. No it didn't. How could it be Gohan? Whenever she was away, she had it from Sharpner and Erasa that both Gohan and Mirai were still in class! Gohan was a wimpy nerd, though a very kind and adorable one. This was all a bit too much. She was jumping to conclusions. She was going to jump on him and pummel the shit out of him. Yeah. That's what she'll do.
She ran to the front of the crowd and was about to leap on him, when Krillin called off the match. Suddenly the four of them started staring off into space. It was extremely weird and slightly creepy, until a small dot appeared in the distance. She stared at it. It was getting closer, but she still couldn't tell what it was.
"Is that a falling star?" Erasa asked, having followed in her wake.
Videl was snapped out of her stupor and stared at her, "Are you crazy? It's the middle of the day!" Videl would have gone on, but she noticed Mirai and Gohan whispering and drew closer to eavesdrop.
"Is he crazy?" Mirai asked.
"He can't land here, c'mon," Gohan replied.
What were they talking about? She wondered as they made a quick exit, cutting behind the crowd, who were all fixated on the dot in the sky. Videl, ever the curious one, followed behind them. Though her past stalking of Gohan never really worked, this time he was quite distracted. Behind her, she could hear Krillin calling the class back to order and making up some excuses for Gohan and Mirai.
She watched them run behind a rather large building and wait expectantly. When the dot finally descended, she let out an inaudible gasp; it was a man. Sort of; he was green and wore a turban.
"Piccolo!" Gohan grinned.
"How's it going, Gohan?" the alien asked kindly.
"Pretty good, what are you doing here?"
"I'll tell you if you don't mind her eavesdropping," The green man pointed straight at Videl. Crap.
Videl, knowing her cover was blown and that it would be pointless to hide any longer, emerged from behind some sports equipment.
She made eye contact with Gohan and saw he grew ten shades paler.
" 'Oh crap' indeed, Gohan!" she exploded.
"I can explain," he said holding his hands up defensively.
"You'd better, or I swear I'm going to rip your head off!"
"Videl, calm down," Mirai began.
"Don't you start, Mirai! You're dead too!" she growled.
"Ahem," the alien coughed to get their attention.
"Should we be making a trip to Dende, Gohan?"
Gohan spluttered but shook his head violently, "No, no, it's fine. She can keep her memories, we'll fill her in,"
What? Videl thought to herself.
"Fine. Dende and I just thought we should let you know that we've been feeling a very odd spike of Ki off and on for the past week or so. It only flares briefly, but it's not coming from earth, but somewhere close by, within this galaxy,"
"Crap, you don't think it's going to be another invader or something, do you?"
"We don't know yet. Just thought we should let you know," With that the man shot into the sky and left.
"Invaders? One of you had better start explaining before I kick the truth out of you!" Videl demanded, "You're the Gold Fighter, aren't you?!"
"Ding ding ding," Mirai grinned, "And we have a winner,"
"Haha, Videl, uh, see, I can explain…" Gohan began as Krillin ran up to them.
"Was that Piccolo just then?" he asked, then noticed Videl, "Crap. Uh, I mean, what a costume, right? I bet…"
"Don't worry, Krillin, we'll explain to Videl later," Mirai said, emphasizing the later.
"Oh, no you don't. You're going to try to worm your way out of it. You'll tell me now!" Videl growled.
"We're in the middle of class, Videl! Afterschool. We'll go to the park, we'll all talk it out. You can bring Erasa too. How does that sound?" Mirai reasoned.
"Fine!" she snarled, "But I want to fight Gohan. Right now."
"Uh…" Gohan looked to Mirai, who was obviously a much better negotiator than he.
"You heard the lady," Mirai shrugged with a laugh, giving him a what-can-you-do look.
Krillin marched the three teens back to the group. He gave Mirai and Gohan instructions on what to do, mostly explain the basics, teach a couple of moves, get everyone sparring and critique their forms.
"Okay, Guys, so first of all I'm going to get you guys to warm up," Mirai shouted. As most of them were semi-trained martial artists, he let them run their own warm up.
"Make sure that your back is straight when you do push-ups" Gohan corrected. Dropping to the ground, he demonstrated the proper hand positioning and technique.
"Wow, Gohan, that's impressive," Sharpener commented, "Who knew you had more than just brain weight," Gohan grinned and demonstrated a one-armed push-up, buoyed up by Sharpener's praise. Mirai laughed and jumped on his friend's back.
"Mirai," Gohan growled, rolling his eyes and letting out a puff of breath, but he continued doing his one armed push-ups despite Mirai perching on his back, grinning mischieviously.
Sharpener was openly shocked, "How the hell…"
"This isn't even the best bit yet," Mirai began to jump, in perfect synchonisation with Gohan's one-armed push-ups. As Gohan brought his nose to the ground and attempted to push himself back up, Mirai would give a powerful leap, attempting to force Gohan's face into the dirt, landing heavily as Gohan was attempting to straighten his elbow.
"That's crazy," Sharpener whispered in awe as Gohan didn't miss a beat and continued with the push-ups. Eventually, just as Mirai was about to land on his back, he bent his elbow and rolled, causing Mirai to trip slightly. Videl, watching the entire show noted that Mirai didn't plummet to the ground, but seemed, instead, to float down like a feather. She narrowed her eyes at the two of them.
"You need to lay off the food, Mirai," Gohan laughed.
Once the others were limber and ready to go, Mirai asked them to line up and drop into their stances. Starting from either end of the line, Mirai and Trunks worked their way to the middle, gently correcting each of their fellow classmates, suggesting they drop a shoulder there, lift an elbow here, straighten their backs and bend their knees.
"Now we're going to get you guys to partner up and spar, we'll walk around and correct your technique," Mirai announced. "We're going to make this a round-robin styled tournament. Winner can fight me or Gohan,"
By the end of the hour, Videl was the overall champion, with Sharpner a close second. Videl had won all her matches and, after a large gulp of water, she threw her drink bottle to the ground.
"GOHAN!" She yelled, "Let's go," she jumped into the ring they had drawn up and began letting loose some practice jabs.
Gohan, sighed in defeat and joined her in the circle.
Videl dropped into her stance, "Videl's stance is very good, made for her offensive fighting style and for quick attacks," Mirai explained to the students who had gathered eagerly around.
For the first time that day, Gohan dropped into his stance. Videl quickly analysed it and grinned, noticing holes in his form. Perhaps this would be easier than she thought.
"Begin," Mirai called.
Videl jumped forward and aimed a kick right at Gohan's biggest opening. She was hoping to push him back to the edge of the circle and pummel him mercilessly. She was surprised when he stepped forward into the attack, leaned back slightly and caught her foot, spinning her and throwing her off balance. Videl was only barely able to catch herself and fall into a handstand, springing backward and dropping back into a solid stance.
"As you can see, Gohan left deliberate openings in his stance to provoke attacks from the opponent," Mirai announced.
Videl growled and re-launched her attack, a flurry of kicks and punches stormed Gohan's way. Gohan avoided each of these easily. After a minute of intense punching and kicking, Videl broke away, sweating and panting.
"Why won't you attack?" she yelled in frustration. All Gohan did was block or dodge.
Gohan sighed and, faster than the eye could see, he dropped down for a leg sweep, easily tripping Videl up. He took a step forward and with a light push to the middle of her chest, sent her sprawling out of the ring.
Gohan went to offer her a hand. She glared up at him and swatted away the hand. He sighed. This was going to be a long day.
After class was over, Gohan and Mirai made it back to their lockers and were preparing to leave when they were surrounded by girls, all bombarding them with questions. Their popularity seemed to have sky-rocketed.
Videl, watching the scene, was not happy. She stormed into the crowd and pulled the two boys out, ignoring the protests from the other girls.
She dragged the two to the front of the school where Erasa was waiting and the four of them made their way to the park.
"Start explaining, you two," Videl said once they'd sat down on the luscious grass of Satan Central Park.
"Where do we start?" Gohan asked, looking at Mirai and wondering how much to let slip.
"How about your flying trick?" Videl asked, pointing an accusatory finger at the two of them, "I want to know how you guys are pulling off that stunt,"
Mirai rolled his eyes, "It's not a trick," he said levitating slightly off the ground. Just enough to shock Videl and Erasa, but not enough to draw the notice of anyone else.
"It's ki manipulation. Anyone with the proper training could do it," Gohan added.
Videl's eyes lit up and she grinned determinedly, "You are going to teach me,"
"I want to know how you turn your hair golden. Is it some kind of dye? Can anyone learn how to do that?" Erasa asked.
"It's a genetic thing. No, not anyone can do it,"
"I thought you guys said you weren't related," Videl commented.
"That is a really, really long story that we'll tell you about some other time," Mirai said, not wanting to delve into the whole 'alien' thing.
Videl looked partially satisfied and spent the next ten minutes making arrangements with the two of them to teach her how to fly. Erasa also demanded a date from Mirai, who agreed since they did figure out who their secret identities were.
Eventually, it began to get dark and the four of them parted ways. Gohan sighed.
"Life just got really complicated, didn't it?" He asked Mirai as they flew home.
"Cheer up, soon you'll have a girlfriend and Aunt ChiChi can have those grandbabies she's always wanted," Mirai laughed.
Yeah, I've got a lot of explaining to do, but I don't want to do it here and mar the happy mood of this chapter.
