Kia’s Real Reason Series: 2

 

 

The REAL Reason Why Vegeta Wanted Immortality

 

 

Goku looked out of the window for the umpteenth time that hour. The sky remained blue and clear, yet he could not shake off the feeling of uneasiness that had dogged him since he found the dragon radar missing that morning.

 

‘Surely he wouldn’t…’

 

‘Yet, why didn’t he tell me about it?’

 

‘Maybe he wanted it to be a surprise…’ Goku raked a hand through his unruly black spikes nervously. ‘The only question is, will it be a good or bad one?’

 

Suddenly, his head snapped up as the sky outside darkened. Long seconds ticked by as Goku dithered. To trust or not to trust. Finally, he hoped that he had not made the wrong decision and raised two fingers to his forehead.

 

He reappeared beside his mate, just in time to see Shenlong’s trail as it vanished back into the dragonballs. The amber glow from the seven spheres faded as the mythical balls changed back into dull stone, and then the dragonballs rose up and dispersed to the winds.

 

“Vegeta! What did you wish for?”

The Saiyan prince turned to him with a rare, genuine smile. “Well, I wished for immortality…”

 

Before he could complete his sentence though, Goku interrupted with a betrayed expression. “What? Why? I thought you’ve changed!”

 

“Wha…?” Vegeta looked confused.

 

“Why else would you want to wish for immortality?” Goku’s deepest fears came boiling to the fore. He recalled the disapproving looks and well-meant warnings from his friends with dismay. Was he wrong about Vegeta after all? Perhaps the cold prince had never changed his power-hungry ways.

 

Vegeta’s eyes widened with comprehension, and then narrowed as his brows drew together in a dark scowl. “Shimatta… After all this time, you don’t trust me?” Underlying the sudden rage was an undercurrent of hurt as well. The prince crossed his arms proudly and looked away.

 

“I wished for immortality.” His voice was clipped and curt. “For the two of us. It was meant to be your birthday gift.”

 

Goku blinked. “…why?”

 

The royal’s voice remained icy. “Because, bakayaro, I realized our ages when I was thinking about what to get for you.” He poured on the guilt. “And while Saiyan-jins may live a long time, we do not live forever.”

 

“Ano… I am not scared about dying, Vegeta.” Goku said gently. He was mortified by his mistake and touched that his mate had gone through all that trouble for him.

 

Vegeta quirked one brow up as he enunciated his words slowly and insultingly. “Neither am I. But there is a fate worse than death though; what happens after we die?”

 

Goku thought about the two times he had died before… How he appeared in Lord Enma’s office… And then…

 

His face paled as understanding slapped him upside down in the head.

 

“Oh my god! Chi Chi and Bulma will be waiting for us up there!”
