1.) Pan is Goku and Chi-Chi's daughter, NOT Gohan and Videl's.
2.) There will be parts when Mirai Trunks and Pan will be mentioned. If you have read 'Strong Bonds' then you know what they're talking about. If you haven't read 'Strong Bonds' you will still be okay, everything's going to be explained in due time!
3.) This story is long ranged! It starts off from before the fight with Buu, all the way until after the Shadow Dragons.
4.) The rating will change as the story continues!
5.) At first, this story is some-what cannon to Dragon Ball Z, but as the story continues MY ideas come into view. It will be less cannon, and not everything that happens in this story happened, or could have happened in Dragon Ball Z. Just remember that this is MY fanfiction.
6.) I am saying this once! I own nothing Dragon Ball/ Dragon Ball Z/ or Dragon Ball GT. Only the ideas, characters, and other things I come up with!
7.) Enjoy! :)
8.) I would also like to thank Lavenblue (Kim) for going with me on this editing journey and beta'ing all the old chapters, and the new ones to come. I couldn't ask for a better friend, or beta reader. Thank you so much.
Chapter 1- Memories
Seven years... That's how long it had been since Goku died in the final battle against Cell. Five years since Chi-Chi, Gohan and Goten had last seen the man. The day he came back was like any other day for the remaining Son's. Chi-Chi was outside doing laundry, when out of nowhere two strong arms wrapped around her waist, and she was pulled back into their muscular chest. She recognized the scent immediately as her mates, and when she turned around sure enough it was him! Goku stood there, smiling brightly and looking just the way Chi-Chi remembered him.
"G-Goku! What are you doing here?" She asked, even though she already knew the answer. Tears were rolling down her cheeks as she hugged him tightly.
"Mirai Pan was right," Goku told her. "There was a tournament in the Other World, and I won. King Kai was my mentor, and I got to make a wish. My wish was to spend the day with you and Gohan."
Chi-Chi smiled into his neck, happy to have her husband back for the day, and that she would be having her daughter. "Come on, there is someone I want you to meet," she grabbed one of Goku's large hands, leading him inside their home.
"Gohan! Goten!" She yelled through the house.
Seconds later, Gohan came down the stairs holding a small boy in his arms. Both boys looked like their father, both with dark hair and coal-black eyes.
"Dad!" Gohan yelled when he saw Goku. "What are you doing here? Are you back for good?"
"No, I'm afraid I'm only here for today..." Goku said, his eyes glued to Goten. He looked just like him!
"Goku meet Goten, he's two and half years old... I'm sure you've already guessed it, but he's your son."
Goku smiled brightly, "Come here little guy," he said holding his arms out towards Goten, who immediately went into them. Goku soon grabbed Gohan and Chi-Chi, bringing them into the hug as well.
The rest of the day was peaceful for the reunited family. They spent it fishing by the river next to the house, and they had a picnic. Goku and Gohan sparred for a while, and after Gohan begged Chi-Chi to spar with Goku- who of course, went easy on her.
Later that night, Chi-Chi cooked a huge dinner- using all the fish that they had caught earlier.
She was doing the dishes while Goku put the boys to bed. She had just finished when for the second time that day two arms wrapped around her waist tightly. "I have to go soon," whispered Goku.
Chi-Chi turned around and kissed him. If tonight was the only night he would come back, then Pan would have to be conceived. Not that Chi-Chi minded; she had missed her husband terribly. He led them back to the bedroom, where they would spend their last night together.
The next morning, Chi-Chi woke up to find Goku gone. In a way, her heart broke all over again. She knew he couldn't stay forever- no matter how much she wanted him to. Sadly, she picked up his orange shirt from the floor, and put it on- remembering what he smelled like. Remembering his strong arms around her, and his scent. She was a strong woman, and she would continue to be strong- for her family.
It was a few months later when Chi-Chi found out that she was expecting. Bulma, who was like Goku's sister, had become Chi-Chi's best friend through the years. The blue-haired genius wasn't surprised to hear the news, and neither was the rest of the Z-Fighters. Mirai Trunks and Pan told them that it would happen after all...
It was shortly after Chi-Chi's announcement that Bulma made one of her own- she would be having another child as well. Both women were ecstatic and glowing. Their excitement only grew when they discovered that Bulma would be having a little girl as well.
Everyone had always loved Pan and Bulla- Bulma's daughter who was just a few months younger than Pan. Trunks, however was definitely closest to Pan. Their connection began even before Pan's birth. No one was really surprised, since the two were meant for each other, no matter what alternate universe. Mirai Trunks and Pan was an example of that.
As Pan grew, it was always Trunks who knew what she wanted- even before she could speak. He even gave her the nickname, Panna- a name that only he was allowed to call her. When Pan's first solid word was Trunks, Chi-Chi wasn't surprised. He could understand Pan in a way that no one else did, or ever would for that matter. He talked to her like she was another kid, and not in a baby voice like most of the older ones did. When Pan was cranky, Trunks was the one who could always make her smile and laugh. He was now eight years old, and Pan was four, and nothing had changed.
Chi-Chi walked into her living room, searching for her daughter. Now where could she have gone? "Pan?"
Chi-Chi looked up with wide eyes. There was her little girl, sitting on the ceiling! She felt a sigh escape her lips, she should have seen this one coming. Pan was a Saiyan after all- even in this timeline. "Gohan!"
"Yeah Mom?" The teen rushed into the room quickly. Chi-Chi pointed up, and he followed her gaze before laughing. "Pan-Chan, what are you doing up there?"
"I don't know," the girl laughed, truthfully. "I was just doing what Trunks and Goten do."
"What?" Chi-Chi tilted her head to the side. "Trunks and Goten run on my walls?"
"Uh... No," Pan laughed, trying to cover for the boys, but it was already too late.
"What's Pan doing?" Goten asked, walking up to the group.
"Young man, have you been running on my walls?" Chi-Chi asked, placing her hands on her hips.
"It was Trunks' idea!" Goten claimed.
"No it wasn't," chimed Pan. "You're the one who came up with the idea!"
"Pan!" Goten gave his little sister a quick look before turning back towards his mom, trying his best to look innocent. "We took our shoes off..."
Chi-Chi sighed, "At least the walls didn't get dirty, but if you're going to do something like that again, please go outside."
"Yes ma'am," Goten smiled.
"Gohan, I think it's time for flying lessons," Chi-Chi said, looking at her oldest.
"I would say so," he grinned. "How does that sound, Pan-Chan!"
"I'm going to fly!" She beamed, clapping her hands together.
Pan couldn't understand why Gohan didn't want her or Goten to fly fast around Videl... Goten had told her it was because Videl couldn't fly as fast as them, but the four-year-old was getting tired of just sitting on the ground. Her bother had sneaked off some time ago to find somewhere where he could fly fast, and her other brother was still waiting for Videl to fly higher, leaving Pan mainly to herself.
It was boring times like this when she wished that Trunks was around. He would have sneaked off somewhere with her to fly fast... He was so happy when she showed him that she could fly. A thought came into Pan's mind... Maybe Videl was scared and needed someone to hold her hand. Flying was pretty scary... She jumped off the ground and floated next to Gohan's head.
"Fly with me," Pan told the teenager, holding out her hand. Videl looked at her for a minute, wondering what the girl was up to. If she was being honest with herself, she had been scared of going any higher- afraid that if she did she would fall. But, Pan would be holding her hand; she would have someone there with her. It wouldn't be that bad, right? With a smile, Videl took it.
