A/N: Are you excited for this chapter? It's the last one and I appreciate writing this story and reading all of your reviews. I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
I didn't tell her right away. There was another contraction. It was as if this contraction was telling me not to tell her. What kind of Saiyan warrior would I be if I told her about this humiliating situation? What will I tell her? "Okay. Let me tell you." I took a deep breath. "There's nothing wrong with me, so stop asking!" By this point, I was on all fours. How embarrassing!
"But Vegeta…" The boy started but the doctor came in.
"Don't mind me. I'm only checking for dilation." But we did. As Trunks and I turned around as he checked, we were all silent. You could hear a pin drop. "Okay, I think we're ready to push."
"What?" We all yelled.
"Mrs. Briefs you're at the full ten centimeters."
"But I can't! I haven't felt any contractions!"
"The grandparents aren't here!" Trunks yelled.
"There's no time!" I yelled. "The baby is coming now!"
The doctor nodded. "I'll have to get other doctors and…"
"THERE'S NO TIME!" I grabbed a chair and sat down next to Bulma. She was looking at me then the doctor and back at me with so much confusion. "Woman, remember that talk we had about trust? Well, you're going to have to trust me on this." She hesitated at first when I held out my hand. Holding hands is a symbol of trust.
"Okay. I trust you." She said, holding my hand.
"What does she have to do?" Trunks asked the doctor.
"I'm going to have to ask you to push for ten seconds as soon as you feel a contraction."
"But, doctor, have you been listening? I can't feel…"
"Woman, listen to me." She looked at me with even more confusion than before. "Trust me." The contraction was coming. I could feel it. "Start pushing as hard as you can."
"Sir, I don't think…" That stupid doctor started.
"Don't listen to him! You trust me! Now push!"
"But Vegeta…" The woman hesitated. I knew that there was only one way to get her to do as I say.
"I'll tell you the secret if you push this baby out!" The pain was unbearable! My screams of pure agony can't penetrate it! "Now!" I kept yelling "Push now!"
"Okay! Okay!" She did as she was told. I thought the baby coming out would be slightly relieving but it was much worst!
"For the love of… WHY?" I yelled. "Why does childbirth hurt so much?"
"Doctor, I'm not feeling anything." The woman started weeping. "Why?"
"The head is crowning!" Trunks shouted. "Woah! So this is what childbirth is like!"
"Okay, and breathe." The doctor said.
I drew in as much air as I can after losing so much yelling. "How much longer?"
"On your next contraction." The doctor answered my question.
My body was shaking already. I can't deal with this any longer! "G…Get ready…to push…again." I said in between breaths.
"Vegeta, can you not squeeze my hand so hard this time? I mean, really! I can't tell if I'm having the baby or you!"
"PUSH!" I yelled. The pain nearly sent me to the floor. "Get this baby out of her already!" I shouted.
"He's almost out!" Trunks shouted over my screams.
"Oh my hand!" Bulma shouted.
"And breathe." The doctor instructed.
"No more. I can't do this anymore." I complained. Do you see what this baby has brought me to? Now I have tears coming down my eyes. "Ooooh the agony…"
"We just need one more push." Trunks said.
"PUSH, WOMAN, PUSH!"
"I'm pushing! But you still have to tell me what's going on!" She yelled over my screams.
"And he's out!" The doctor cheered.
"Wow, he's beautiful." Trunks said as the baby was crying. He even had tears in his eyes. "What a miracle."
"A miracle." I took in several breaths in. It was over. All 231 days of having to deal with this child was over. No more pregnancy. No more labor. I've done my deed. It's over.
"So what's the big secret?" She asked.
By this point, I was exhausted. I could barely keep anything up. All I could say was "the dragon." Then, I collapsed.
"Vegeta, do you want to meet your son?" I opened my eyes to the newborn child that is my son. He was so small and squishy looking. How am I going to train him? "Isn't he beautiful?" The woman was holding him tightly in her arms, protecting him from all outside dangers. "Don't forget you have to tell me your big secret."
"A promise is a promise." I hesitated. It was a humiliating situation but what kind of warrior would I be if I couldn't keep a promise? "Bulma, the truth shall be between us only."
We both looked at Trunks. "I'll just be leaving you two alone to talk." He quickly scurried out the door.
"What is it? Are you hurt?"
"Yes, but it's okay. The truth is that…I was cheated by Shenron!"
"Cheated? How on Earth did you get cheated by a dragon that grants any wish?"
"I wished for the baby to be born a boy and he gave me that and something else."
"You wanted a boy so badly that you went behind my back and wished for it?" She yelled.
"Let me finish!" I took a deep breath and started again. "He said that pregnancy and childbirth comes with great pain, discomfort, and aggravation. So he gave you the son I wanted and gave me...everything else."
She didn't say anything for a minute. "You were being selfish. You deserved to be punished." I sighed. "But think of this as the perfect training. I bet you didn't expect to deal with that kind of pain, did you?"
Training? I never thought of it like that! If I can endure that pain, I can handle anything! I'm one step closer to being a Super Saiyan and surpassing Kakkarot! "No, I guess you can say that I didn't." I looked at the baby who was sleeping soundly.
"You did great. I think your son will love you for it."
"It wouldn't matter. You'll keep him until he's old enough to train. Until then, I need to go away for a while."
"Why? The baby has just been born. You can't leave now." A tear ran down her cheek. I stood up and wiped it away. I didn't need to see her cry.
"My main purpose is to train for the androids and become a Super Saiyan. I need to go elsewhere to train."
"But where would you go?"
That was a good question. Where would I go? Kakkarot came from space and now he's a Super Saiyan. I don't see why I can't do the same. "I'll go to space!"
"Well, it's time for me to go." Trunks said, coming in. "I hope I'm not interrupting anything but I'm about to exceed my limit."
"You're leaving too?" She sobbed. "Who's going to help me with this baby?"
"Your parents." We both said.
"We're here to see the baby!" Just in time, her mom showed up. "Oh, he's so handsome!"
"Well, I have to go. Bye!" Trunks left.
My work here was also done. As the woman was surrounded by her loving family, I escaped from the hospital and flew away. I've been distracted with this child for too long and now I have to make up for lost times. I seem to be okay and not damaged from the inside, so I flew off into the sky.
I'll come back to see my son and train him to become a great warrior and become stronger than Kakkarot's son. Until then, I will have to work to become strong enough to make the earth safe for him to grow.
I took my last look at the hospital where my son was before fully taking off to the Capsule Corp. There lies the spaceship I would take. Now my journey to become the legendary Super Saiyan will continue without interruptions!
