A Blue Green Mixture
A party was going on at Capsule corp. all the lights were on and you could hear the happy screams of a child running through out the place. Goku was playing with his son, Gohan. The others were in the living room contemplating on their new found friend, Piccolo. At first he wanted to kill Goku, like all other living things, but when the news of a new threat happened upon earth he decided to join them. He said that it was only so that Goku wouldn't die and he would have the pleasure of killing Goku himself. Chichi was most timid around him, he didn't eat anything he only drank water and he was always by himself. Chichi and Buruma were sitting next to each other. Yamcha had joined Goku in hide and seek with Gohan. Piccolo was leaning on a wall with his head down and his eyes closed. Chichi glanced at Piccolo and then back at her friend.
"He freaks me out. I mean how can some one live on just water?" Buruma giggled at her friend's puzzlement.
"I don't know, but he's kinda cute if you don't pay attention to the green skin."
"Buruma! How could you say that!? He's a cold blooded killer and you have Yamcha, you shouldn't say things like that."
"Well I really don't think me and Yamcha are going to be together for long, I just found out that he's been cheating on me again."
"Oh I'm so sorry. Will you be ok?"
"I'll be fine I guess. I'm going to tell him later tonight that I can't stand it anymore."
"Really? Yikes how do you think he's going to take it?"
"I hope he dies."
"Yeah well he deserves it." Chichi nodded and took her cup of tea off the coffee table and took a sip. Kuririn walked in from the kitchen and said that dinner was ready. He was learning to fix a broken machine from Buruma's dad.
"Yay! Dinner!" yelled a happy Gohan who came bounding in out of nowhere. Chichi got up and followed Gohan into the kitchen.
"Gohan! Don't run now! Walk please!" She said. Buruma looked over at the green figure against the white wall. She went over to him and peered under his turban. He opened his eyes and scared Buruma half to death.
"AAHHH! Jeez you scared me!" He glared at her.
"What do you want?"
"I just wanted to know if you wanted any water or anything."
"Yeah that's fine." He closed his eyes again. Buruma lifted an eyebrow and walked back to the kitchen. Everyone was already sitting, they watched her grab a glass and fill it with water. She glanced over at the table.
"It's for Piccolo." She said holding up the glass. Everyone nodded and went back to pigging out. Buruma set the water next to Piccolo and turned back to the kitchen when she heard a faint 'thank you'.
"You're welcome." She replied. She walked back to the kitchen and took her place next to her dad. "Hey you guys there is almost no food left!" She heard muffled 'sorrys' by Goku and Gohan. Chichi sighed and scraped a bit of meat onto Buruma's plate.
"Thanks." Said Buruma.
"No prob." Chichi replied. Buruma continued to scrape what was left of the food onto her plate. When she began to eat, Goku and Gohan got up and raced out to the backyard where the rest heard laughter and screaming from Gohan. Chichi got up and washed the plates of her family. Buruma's dad and Kuririn finished and went to continue work on the broken machine. Buruma sat at the table by herself, as Yamcha had gone to the living room to watch T.V. She stared at the wall mindlessly chewing her food. She snapped out of her trance when she heard a chair scrape against the floor. It was Piccolo; he set his water on the table and eyed Buruma who was watching him. Buruma shrugged and went back to eating. Chichi had finished with the dishes and came to sit with Buruma.
"Look, Buruma, he's so antisocial." Chichi whispered "He comes after everyone leaves. That's just plain weird."
"I don't know. But he probably can hear everything you're saying." Buruma whispered back. Chichi gasped and covered her mouth.
"Yeah I think Goku said he has really good hearing."
"Oh my, I'm sorry Piccolo." Chichi said. Piccolo glared at her and took another sip of his water. Yamcha got bored and went to see what Buruma was doing. He found her and Chichi whispering about something. He sat next to Piccolo and started to drum on the table.
"What's up green man?" he said. Piccolo grunted. "Okay…I'll take that as a 'fine'. Hey Buruma what cha' doing?"
"What does it look like I'm doing? I'm eating the scraps you people left me." Yamcha glanced down and smiled sheepishly. Buruma turned to Chichi.
"I think I'm going to do it now."
"Are you sure?"
"Yeah." Chichi nodded as her friend got up and beckoned Yamcha to follow her. They went out to the front.
"Ok Yamcha, here's the thing. I know you are cheating on me and I just can't take it anymore. So I want to end this relationship, now." Yamcha's mouth was open in disbelief.
"What? You're just going to dump me? No one dumps me. I dump you. I don't need you anyway." He yelled and turned to his car.
"Fine!" Yelled Buruma to Yamcha's back. Yamcha did a 'forget you' gesture with his hand and got in his car. Buruma locked her hands in fists and stomped back to the living room where Chichi and Goku were eating popcorn and watching her though the window. Gohan was asleep in Chichi's arms.
"Are you ok Buruma?" asked Goku. Buruma nodded trying to keep tears from welling up in her eyes.
"I think we should go now, Gohan is asleep anyway. Thank you for inviting us, Buruma if you need anything just call, okay?" Buruma nodded and walked them to the door. Piccolo was right behind her and when she turned to go get Kuririn she smacked right into him.
"Jeez, Piccolo." She went around him and Piccolo just stared after her. She went into the kitchen and saw Kuririn and her dad working on the machine.
"Hey Buruma, do you think I could stay until we're finished?" asked Kuririn when he saw her come into the kitchen.
"I guess, don't make too much noise though, okay?" Kuririn and her dad nodded and went back to work. Buruma went out of the kitchen and into the living room where the stairs are. When she reached the first step she noticed something in a dark spot of the living room. Frightened, she grabbed an umbrella that was in a vase near the stairs and went to investigate. The light was off in the living room but the moon was out and the light flooded onto the carpet. When she reached the dark spot it shifted and went into the light. Buruma screamed and then realized that it was…Piccolo! What the hell was he doing here? Piccolo stood in the light and looked down at her. Buruma looked up at him and saw the most beautiful sight she had ever seen. His face was outlined by the light defining his features. His green skin had a faint silver glow and his cape was still swaying from when he moved. His arms were crossed and he was looking down at Buruma. Buruma's chest was still heaving from the scare as she glanced wildly about the room and then back at Piccolo. She gave him a quizzical look. Piccolo furrowed his brow and looked as if he was going to say something but then sighed and kept quiet.
"What is it? Piccolo? Why didn't you go with Chichi and Goku?"
"I…I wanted to see for myself if you were really ok." He said quietly. Buruma was amazed at Piccolo's compassion, because she thought he could only feel anger. She smiled and gave Piccolo a hug. Piccolo's eyes widened with surprise and fear; he kept his arms crossed to prevent himself from harming her. Buruma looked up at him and smiled again.
"Thank you Piccolo. Thank you very much." She hugged him again. Piccolo now had no idea what was going on but he let her hug him. He didn't even know why he stayed but to see Buruma smile made all thoughts of regret passed out of his mind. She let him go and saw him to the door. She watched him pass by her and fly out into the night. She sighed and closed the door. She put the umbrella back and continued her journey up the stairs. She didn't feel like crying anymore, she knew that her relationship with Yamcha was over. She plopped down on her bed and rolled over onto her stomach, she grabbed her portable CD player off her bedside table and started to listen. It was Enya, she sighed and rolled onto her back. Few songs later she fell asleep. Little did she know that someone was watching her outside her sliding glass door to her balcony. His arms were crossed and his head was down. His cape was swaying in the wind and he was wondering what he was doing here.
"I shouldn't be here…but she…ugh! I should go." He clenched his teeth and snarled. His ear twitched when he heard a noise. That sounds like Gohan…screaming about something or other. Probably cause his mother woke him up. Kids… Piccolo shook his head. He had one more look at Buruma, his heart softening just a little; He turned and flew off to Goku and Chichi's house.
