'After bearing witness to a horrible assassination, the young heir to the Ox Kingdom fled. The young teen disappeared off the face of the Earth, not to be seen for a long time. The world was left searching for the one named 'Son Gohan,' to place him back in his rightful place, as the heir to the crown for the Ox Kingdom. However, it's hard to find someone who doesn't exist anymore.'
Son Gohan gently splashed the running water onto his face, thinking about the day of which was to come and the future he was now supposed to follow. It wasn't just the future for him, yet in fact the future of the world and how the events of the past have influenced the present.
Five months after the cell game, life changed for the world. Recent news of the expansion of the Ox kingdom brought joy and happiness to the land, a new heir was named later on the day of the news. His name was Son Gohan however the public knew him by his royal name of Oxander Mao. The second heir was on his way, the daughter of the current king was over five months pregnant with her late husband's child and they all knew that a boy was to be expected. No one knew what happened to the father; he was famous in his own way for being a martial artist. This man was thought to be dead yet they press were unable to gain full answers due to the family hiding from them. It was today, on the twenty sixth of October of the age seven hundred and sixty seven where they were to make a full announcement to the world; it was today that they were to move into the royal palace and begin their roles as the royal family.
"How do I look?" Inquired Chi Chi as she gracefully walked into the same room as her oldest son. Gohan swiftly turned his body around as he raised his eyebrow at her attire.
"You look amazing mum." He replied as his eyes were still on her scarlet dress which only just reached the floor. "It compliments your figure nicely, however, the attention of it all is around the bump." The young son made sure to tread carefully as he mentioned the bump, he wanted all but an angry Chi Chi after him today.
Chi Chi released a heart warming smile as her hands gently moved over and begun caressing the baby bump. "That was the whole point of me wearing this dress, it was to illustrate the bump."
"Well it's doing it's job then. And hey, another good thing about today is that you won't make me study." At first Gohan pondered why she would want such a thing, before remembering the ever present press and the horror stories, he'd heard of them twisting stories around. God knows what they'd do, a very pregnant princess's baby seemingly disappeared.
"Oh, don't worry, you'll still study," Chi Chi slightly smirked, as Gohan's face visibly drooped, "However it will have to be after the ceremony." The woman insisted as her child moved closer towards her, carefully she placed her hand onto the boys cheek as her smile still stayed. "You look just like your father."
"Thanks mum, I really miss him mum, I just wish he could be here."
"Don't we all, especially with baby Goten on the way." The mother cried as she released a single tear before wiping it and looking up to the sky, "But I'm sure he's watching over us from heaven."
"Come now, we must get going if we want to arrive to the ceremony on time." Chi Chi refrained from showing further emotions, as she instructed her son.
The boy nodded his head as him and his mother walked from out of his old bedroom. They walked throughout their small country home as they said goodbye to their past and the boy's childhood for one last time. They walked to the front of his home as a man dressed in white opened up the door of the formal car. Chi Chi entered the car first as the boy followed behind. He placed one foot in and turned his body around as he smiled.
"Goodbye." He whispered under his breath towards his childhood home, full of memories it still was, he'd miss it for sure. "Goodbye my home."
Gyu Mao stood staring out of the palace window. Below him, he noticed the build-up of excited members of the public and the media as the time grew closer to his grandson and his daughter returning as members to the throne. Inside the big guy was thrilled however doubts ran through him. His unborn grandson was to be brought up in the life of media, thus meaning that he would not live a normal childhood and the media could be blood thirsty hounds, some of them still often believed he was evil? Was the kid ever going to have a normal life? The King laughed to himself, it wasn't as though a normal childhood would be expected from a half alien and as long as the boy had his mother, he would grow up fine.
He watched as the car he sent to collect his daughter and Grandson pulled up through the long drive way, many people began screaming with joy whilst the king descended from his place within the palace to meet his family members out front.
"My name is Twinkle Howard and this is the day that we have been looking forward to since the dreadful events of the Cell games. Today is the long awaited day where the heir to the Ox Kingdom will be announced and the day where Princess Chi Chi will return back to the throne. At this moment we can see the royal car pulling into the long drive way and the doors to the palace have begun to open. The general public has gathered around the balcony of which they will be formally introduced on and now we can see the Ox King standing at the doors with members of his personal guard."
"You ready mum?" Son Gohan asked as he re-adjusted his tie, she tossed her head from side to side as she took in a deep breath.
"I never thought I would return back to the lifestyle of royalty." She replied quietly. "Then again this is a better lifestyle then what we would have had out there in the forest." She clenched her teeth nervously, as she gripped the comfortable leather seat.
"Don't worry mum, everything is going to be alright." He comforted as he placed his hand onto hers. "It's time mother, time for the world to know who the Son family really is."
'Or at least three fourths of it.' A frowning Chi Chi thought, before looking around at the crowd, and then beaming brightly at the sky, 'Goku, you'll come back to me, won't you? You always do!'
The door to the royal car opened for the two, roars of joy erupted through the gathered crowd as two servants carrying umbrella's to hide their faces from the public eye, appeared next to the door. Both servants popped them up as a dainty foot in red heels gracefully slid from outside the car. Followed directly behind her was her son. The two servants walked simultaneously with the two members of the royal family as they walked away from the crowd, towards the sheltered entrance. The King stood smiling as he reached out his hand towards the woman, she grabbed onto it as the crowd saw the unknown child and the known princess walk into the palace and the doors firmly shutting behind them.
"Welcome to your new home." King Gyu Mao stated as his eyes moved from his daughters to his grandsons. "Both of you look like royalty, but there's still one thing missing."
He signalled with his hand for one of his other servants to come over, in his hand was a pillow with a tiara rested on top. Chi Chi turned her eyes from her father, to the pillow, back to her father as she began to release a few drops of tears. "It's my mother's tiara."
"And now it's yours." He responded as he lifted the crowd and placed it on her head. "Now shhhh, don't say another word Chi Chi, it's time for us to introduce Gohan to the world."
"Ladies and Gentlemen of the Ox Kingdom, and the rest of the world, I present to you with his majesty King Gyu Mao and her highness Princess Chi Chi Mao." A member of the royal guard yelled down towards the crowd of gathered people. From behind him, the palace doors to the balcony opened up. A large man dressed in a black suit walked forwards first, on his head he wore a crown with two ox's horns pointing out of the side. Following behind him was the older version of the Princess the people of the Ox Kingdom last saw, her red dress glistened underneath the sunlight as she stepped forwards and followed her father. People below muttered how she was the spitting image of her mother as they all cheered.
"It is of great pleasure for the expansion of the Ox kingdom yet the greatest pleasure of all is the return of my daughter and her son. It is her son that is due to next take the throne after me and up until now my grandson has lived a life in solitude. Away from the media as he experienced a near normal childhood." The King roared as the people cheered. "It is with great honour to present his Royal Highness Prince Oxander Mao, first in line for the throne of the Ox Kingdom."
Son Gohan stepped forwards from behind the balcony door, he strolled forward as the crowd screamed at a faster rate. The boy wore a suit which was royal blue; his hair was gently spiked back in a shorter version of his late father's, unusual hairstyle. For a brief second he looked down onto his arm where a small charm bracelet rested, he then lifted that arm up into the air and waved down to the crowds below him.
He took in a deep breath as he parted his lips, as he chanted with an ever growing smile gracing his lips. "It is an honour to be named the next in line for the throne and I will help make the Ox Kingdom do its utmost. It's a time of change where we are to decide our own futures, it will be my tribute to serve this Kingdom and defend those within it. I will protect those who are weak and those who are poor as well as those who are wealthy and strong, this is a time for the Ox Kingdom to flourish and strive."
Meanwhile two little girls sat in a baby blue bedroom; one was playing with the others long onyx hair as they both eagerly watched the news report on the TV. The blonde girl sighed as she released the lock of hair, a smile resting upon her delicate face.
"Look at him Vi." She sighed. "That is a boy of pure perfection, a true prince."
"Perhaps, but I'm sure he just wants to be a normal child, no actually he seems to be butt-kissing for attention just look at him." The raven haired one scowled.
"He was a normal child before, duhhh, he was raised away from the media and stuff. But he seems really nice!" The blond retorted. "I think I am in love."
"Well I think he's just spoiled and a snob. He may look good Erasa, but he could be an idiot. He is a Prince and all the other Princes I've met through my father dragging me to their celebration parties for him, have just been idiots."
Both of their eyes immediately shot back over to the screen of the television as their mouths began to drop.
"NOOOO!" Gohan screamed as he allowed his body to fall onto the floor. Tears streaked down his face as his eyes moved back towards the metallic bracelet. The crowd below him watched anxiously as they saw the Princess Chi Chi mover her hand over a blast wound on her stomach. The mother coughed gently however blood dripped out from her mouth. Her father grabbed onto her stumbling body as the child clicked a button on the bracelet; it shortly fell into his hands where he tucked it into his pocket.
He lifted his head up, his eyes were dark as he stood up and moved towards his bleeding mother who was just carefully placed on the floor. Tears filled her eyes as she placed her hand on her sons cheek. Her lips parted slightly as she took in a deep breath.
"It...is...too...late...to...save...me...but...Go...ten..." She hissed, the boys tears continued to fall down his face. "Sa..ve...Got...en..."
"Mum." He whispered under his breath as from the corner of his eyes, he saw a member of the medical personnel enter the balcony. Tears continued to streak down his face. "You can't leave me, YOU CAN'T!"
"I'm...sor...ry..." she smiled as her hand fell from his cheek, tears from his eyes fell onto her paling face as her shut.
"MUUUMMMM" He screamed as his hair flashed gold, he lifted up into the air as the boy continued to scream with anger.
A brilliant, gold aura was suddenly tainted dark orange, as the greened eyed teenager flew off, far away. All he wanted to do was run, stuff it all. 'Dad and now mum too. Why Dende?'
He landed on a sandy beach as bare feet, shoes demolished by the violent aura, touched the grainy floor, a look of hatred and anger upon his face. His eyes turned cold as his hair returned back to its former black, fluttering in the wind's ferocious breeze. His hand reached into his pocket as he grasped the metallic bracelet before shoving it onto his wrist.
His gaze fastened on the waves crashing against each other, a salty aroma lingering in the air.
"I promise you mum, I will avenge you." He hissed towards the beach's water, his hand raised as he pressed a few buttons on the bracelet. "I will find your killer and make them pay. But until I do, I won't return, may Yenma have mercy, on that monster."
