Now, for the last time I'll say this with this story…
Read and review. :)
"I love you," Gohan whispered in her ear, huskily, which made Videl giggle and lean into him even more from her spot in his lap. He chuckled. No one ever saw this side to the adorable dork, except for Videl, and she absolutely loved that fact. Her smile turned into a smirk.
"Prove it." She said teasingly, and just as they were leaning towards each other, lips about to meet, Gohan paused, and looked at the clock on his nightstand.
"Videl…" he began, "It's already 2:30 pm. Isn't it a bit…strange that no one from my family has checked on us yet?..." Videl pout turned into a look of confusion.
And that look of confusion turned into a look of shock as Trunks, Goten, Chichi and Goku fell through the door, in that order.
"Uhhhhh…" the foursome murmured in unison.
"OH MY GOD. WHAT THE HELL?" Gohan shouted, jumping up. Videl stood up, straightening her clothes, her face bright red in embarrassment.
"Dende, I know it's usually Gohan threatening you, but now I promise I'm going to kick your ass back to Namek," she muttered.
SOMEWHERE ON NAMEK…
"Gohan, your mother bribed me, I swear! She promised me food!" Goku exclaimed. Chichi looked at him angrily for giving her away, and hit him upside the head. Everyone's gaze was trained on her, and she looked from side to side, guiltily.
"I just want grandchildren already~!" Everyone dropped to the floor, comically. After getting back up, Gohan and Videl glared at Goten and Trunks.
"TRUNKS MADE ME TRUNKS MADE ME TRUNKS MADE ME" Goten began to shout, flailing his arms about.
"DID NOT!" he yelled angrily, as Goten and Trunks began to fight. Videl walked over and grabbed both of their heads, banging them together.
"I DON'T GIVE A SHIT WHO MADE ANY OF YOU DECIDE TO RUIN OUR MOMENT!" she yelled, making everyone in the room go silent, extremely afraid. "THE FACT IS, NONE OF YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT THE WORD PRIVACY MEANS! GOD DAMN!" Gohan smiled smugly, proud that she was his.
"But, but Videl~, we-" Goten and Trunks began, but Videl cut him off.
"Seriously, I am not the person to piss off today. So rethink what you are about to say, and come back on a day when you don't wanna get punched in the face." And with that, they scurried out of the room. She sighed, putting a hand to her face, clearly stressed out. Gohan did the same. Videl sighed, and turned to Goku and Chichi.
"And you two! C'mon guys. Seriously?!" she asked, exasperated. Gohan merely chuckled. No matter how embarrassing his mother was and would continue to be, he was past the point of yelling at her, and to the point of merely laughing at his lovable mother's antics, which usually involved dragging his confused father along. Chichi offered a warm smile.
" We can't help it. You two are just too adorable," she said. Goku grinned. Videl slowly smiled, and Gohan grinned as he stepped next to Videl and held her hand. She smiled wider, turning her gaze to him. "Now, we'll leave you two alone," she murmured, grabbing Goku and walking out the door. As the door closed, loud and clear, they could hear,
"I'M GONNA BE A GRANDMA! YES!" Videl blushed again and Gohan chuckled.
"My mom," he began, locking the door, "…is a nut-case." Videl giggled, smiling widely at him.
"Best. Nut-case. Ever." She murmured. Gohan laughed loudly, happier than he had been in a while as he hugged Videl tightly, his arms around her waist and hers around his neck.
"So, we're adorable, huh?" Gohan laughed. Videl smirked.
"Well duh. We're Gohan and Videl." she replied.
The raven-haired beauty leaned her head into his chest as he placed a gentle kiss atop her head. After they stood there locked in a warm embrace for a little bit, Videl looked up.
"Hey, Gohan?" she murmured.
"Yes, Videl?" he asked, looking at her with those mesmerizing eyes that made Videl feel weak in the knees every single time. She lost her train of thought for a second, but then remembered what she was about to say. She looked down shyly.
"Promise you won't leave me again?" she asked quietly, a hint of fear in her voice. She looked up at him slowly, to see that his eyes had softened considerably, looking at her like she was the only person that mattered to him, like she was the only person in the world.
"Videl, I could never, ever leave you, no matter how hard I tried. Even when I "left"…I was always with you. It's…it's hard to explain, Videl. All I know is I love you more than anything else and—"
Videl interrupted him with the urgent need to press her lips against his. Videl ran her fingers through his hair desperately, needing him more than ever. The smooth demi-saiyan trailed his fingers up and down her back, eliciting a shudder from the feisty crime-fighter as their lips crushed against each other.
Dende dammit, why is it so easy for him to turn me into a pile of mush?!
Gohan tentatively entered his tongue into her mouth, and Videl responded intensely. 'Her lips are so sweet,' he thought, pure bliss enveloping him as the kiss grew even deeper. They stumbled their way over to Gohan's bed, with Gohan on top of Videl. She quickly unbuttoned his button down shirt as he moved his lips down her jaw, making Videl whimper when his lips left her mouth, but moan as he continued to make her feel like the happiest woman. Ever. Videl trailed her fingers softly down his chiseled chest, wanting to know what every inch of him felt like. But before things could go any further, Gohan pulled back, making Videl groan desperately, an angry pout gracing her lips when he chuckled at her.
"I love you, Videl," he whispered huskily, making Videl shiver, her body heated up to temperatures she didn't think were possible, "but I don't want to rush you into anything. And I don't think we're ready for this just yet." Videl pouted again, nodding her head in agreement, no matter how much she didn't want to agree. Gohan groaned, seemingly annoyed. Videl looked up at him, surprised.
"What?" she asked, concerned.
"Videl," he whispered by her ear, still on top of her, "you're driving me insane." She blushed bright red, and motioned for him to lay down so she could rest her head on his chest. She smirked, quickly flipping around, on top of him.
Gohan grinned wickedly and cupped her cheek in his hand, kissing her softly. They pulled away and Videl giggled from the evident proof that Gohan wanted her, from the look in his eyes and…well, his pants.
"What?" he asked, smirking at her. She laughed again.
"I just can't wait until we're ready for this!" she exclaimed in an exasperated voice, making the two of them laugh. Gohan smiled that bright, handsome smile that put butterflies in Videl's stomach.
"Videl, you are, without a doubt, the best thing to have happened to me." Videl blushed, speechless, not quite sure how to respond.
Gohan laughed loudly at her, and she laughed with him, just as loud, and just as happy.
"Ditto?!" he asked, not able to contain his laughter. "Is that all I get? Ditto?!" Videl laughed, tears streaming down her face.
"Don't make fun of me, I didn't know what to say!" she exclaimed, hitting him playfully. "Nothing I could say could ever top something as sweet as that." She smiled softly.
Oh Kami, this boy turned her into such a girly girl.
"I could think of a few!" Gohan said, grinning widely. She raised her eyebrows, smirking.
"Oh really? Like what? Humor me."
"Oh Gohan, you're the greatest guy ever! So strong and powerful and handsome and I just wanna-" he said in a high pitched girl voice, making Videl stuff a pillow in his face, laughing so hard her sides hurt.
"G-Get real, Son Gohan! You're gonna have to make me say something like that!"
He smirked, "Oh, am I? Because, if I recall right, you've said it plenty of times before!" Gohan put a finger to his chin, pretending to think. Videl blushed bright red.
"That doesn't count!" she exclaimed, continuing to laugh as she threw another pillow at him.
"Hey!" he exclaimed, throwing a pillow right back at his beloved girlfriend.
The two laughed and continued to enjoy their blissful moment in time with each other, throwing pillows, laughing, cuddling, kissing, and throwing more pillows.
They were happy again, and there was no way in HFIL anyone was going to change that.
Weeks passed, with Gohan and Videl both back in school. Life returned to normal, with the exception of Videl and Gohan being closer than ever. Erasa had taken the news about Sharpner pretty hard, but was determined to back Videl up, because that was what best friends are for.
After a few more months, they graduated from high school, and moved on into college, Videl studying to become a detective, and Gohan to become a scholar. They lived together, enjoying their lives to the fullest, and eventually Gohan proposed to her from his favorite spot on Kami's lookout.
The raven-haired beauty, of course, said yes.
A few years passed, and their beautiful daughter Pan was born. She was an adorable little girl, and was a spitting image of her mother when she was just around 5 years old; which brings us to the present.
"Momma, can you continue the story of you and Papa?" little Pan called out to her mother from her chair in the dining room, her little legs swinging back and forth since they were too short to touch the floor. Videl smiled and emerged from the kitchen, taking her apron off. She sat down on a chair across from her daughter, smiling brightly. Her daughter returned the smile, just as bright.
"Of course, sweety! Now, where exactly was I?..."
"When you were trying to wake him up!" she exclaimed excitedly, waving her arms around and smiling. Videl laughed and ruffled her hair.
"Ohh, that's right. So, I had been trying to wake your father up because your Uncle Goten and Uncle Trunks had broken his alarm clock!" Pan giggled. She loved hearing about her Uncle Goten and his best friend's silly antics. "So, I had been shouting at him, and finally he woke up, barely even knowing where he was!"
"Hey!" Gohan called from Videl's and his bedroom, walking towards them and adjusting his tie, "In my defense, it was a little bit startling having your girlfriend wake you up by yelling at you! Not to mention, an extremely angry yell!" Videl laughed and both mother and daughter stuck their tongues out at him.
"Need help?" she asked, smiling as she watched him fidget with his tie. He grinned as she stood up, helping him with his tie and giving his a quick kiss. Pan, being the little girl she was, pretended to puke. Videl frowned.
"Hey now, I don't have to finish the story!" Pan waved her arms around in protest.
"NO NO NO!" she exclaimed.
"Alright. So, finally I had managed to wake him up, and boy was he confused…"
Videl continued the story with Gohan smiling softly and Pan listening intently. The scene was just precious, with the family all together enjoying each other's presence, recounting the tale of Gohan and Videl; the couple who tried their hardest to enjoy their relationship amidst nosy parents, insane family and friends, and crazy people trying to rip them apart.
See, throughout their crazy journey through life together, they learned something. They learned that, while everyone says that loves hurts, that's not true. Loneliness hurts. Distance hurts. Losing someone hurts. Everyone confuses these things with love, but in reality, love is the only thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again.
Throughout it all, they managed to survive, and are still going, as strong as ever.
Bless their hearts.
