The Aftermath of the Evening
I tripped over my heels a couple of times, but I quickly got rid of them and ran much easier. I found her looking at a river rush by, tears still streaming from
her face. I walked up to her and put a hand on her shoulder.
She immediately turned around and started crying again. I wrapped my arms around her and patted her on the back. I said the usual comforting things,
everything will be alright, he didn't mean it, don't worry, blah, blah, blah. She just nodded every time and kept saying 'I hope so'. After a while her tears
slowed down and she felt better.
"Hey, let's get outta here and go home. I'm sure you don't want to face your man again so you can stay at my house." She looked at me and smiled. Then I
remembered Bulma had the capsule to the car! I wasn't about to walk all the way home. We started to walk back to the restaurant.
"What about your husband and you're friends? Are you … still mad at him?"
I steamed at the thought and felt my face get hot. Then I smiled and looked at her. "Don't worry, Goku will not be allowed in my house tonight after dancing
with that slut-" I couldn't say anymore. I was too mad.
When we got back to the restaurant, Bulma was crying as well. And on top of that, she was all alone. Goku, the girl's boyfriend, and Vegeta had left. I
wonder where Goku went? You know, kicking him out of the house without dinner would make me feel much better right now. Much better. I hoped Goku
was home. I went up to the sobbing Bulma.
"Are… you ok Bulma?" She turned to me.
"Vegeta… he said. .."
"Uh oh. What did Vegeta say?"
"He said… this is exactly what he said. We had an argument and he got really mad. He said … 'I hate you. The only reason I went to this stupid little dinner
is for two reasons and two reasons alone. I was sick of hearing your mouth and I was hungry. And you know something else? That's the only two reasons I
put up with you. I don't like you. I never have.' That's exactly what…he said."
I gasped. Vegeta! How could he say such a thing! I saw them arguing at the table during dinner, but I never expected it to blow up into such a big thing! I
put my hands on my hips. Well, it looks like all of our men need some tuning up. This girl's boyfriend needs to break his fighting habit, I have to teach my
Goku not to pick up any suspicious girls, and Vegeta, well, he was himself. He had to fix his attitude. Come to think of it, he always did have that habit…
"Well, lets take you home Bulma. And…uh..."
She wiped her eyes. "Diana." She said.
"Well Diana, you can stay with me tonight like I said."
She smiled at me. Bulma went into the restaurant and got her purse (Of course she had to step over a few things…) and the car capsule. We drove home
and dropped Bulma off. I took Diana and went up to me and Goku's room. We got changed into comfortable clothes. I took Goku's shirts and gave them to
Diana. They were pretty comfy. I sent her with a pillow and blankets downstairs, and she slept on the couch. I flopped on my bed and fell asleep almost
"What was that?" I whisper to myself.
I could hear something going on downstairs. I got up from bed and took Goku's boe staff and swung it over my shoulder and opened my bedroom door.
The light was on in the kitchen. I look to my left down the stairs, Diana was still sound asleep. To the right...there were… ninjas? Three people dressed in
black with face masks were in my kitchen. One was tall and muscular, one was short and muscular, and the other was skinny and average height. They
were taking all of my food, and putting it in a tablecloth. The tall one was munching on some chips.
Back to my left the skinny one went up to the sleeping Diana. He stroked her cheek then kissed it.
"You stay away from her!!" I screamed.
I ran downstairs and whacked the guy in the head with the staff. As he yelped in pain, the other two guys were in a rush to get everything together and
leave. I ran into the kitchen and started running in circles after them. I took a swing at the tall guy, he ducked and I missed him and hit the short guy.
I whacked him in the head again. "Don't use that kind of language in my house!"
The skinny guy had run into the kitchen and opened the window. Him and the short guy dove out the window and the tall guy tried to but he had the big
load with all the food in it. I gave him a whack in the head as he went out the window. I locked it after them. Then I ran over to Diana to see if she was
"Hey, wake up." I said while shaking her.
"Wha… what?" she said rubbing her eyes.
"Are you alright?"
"Yeah, I'm fine. Why?"
"Because three men were just here in the kitchen messing with my stuff."
"Yeah. And one of them went up to you so I wanted to make sure you were ok."
We both go in the kitchen. It was a mess. They really ruined it. Someone knocked on the door.
"ChiChi? It's Bulma! Can I come in?"
I opened the door for her and let her in.
"What's the matter?" I asked.
"Three men were just inside my house. They were dressed like-"
"Ninjas?" I finished her sentence for her.
"Yes! How did you know?"
"Because the same three men were just here. Look."
I led her into my messed up kitchen. She gawked at the mess. "Hey, what's that?" She pointed to the table. There was an envelope on it. Diana picked it
up. "Hey ChiChi, it says it's for you." She handed me the envelope and I tore it open. I read it aloud. It said:
WILL YOU PLESE COME TO, THE CRINGE FORRESST AT 8:00 AM TWO DAE. I REALY NEEDE YOU HERE. OW, AN BRINGE BULLMA AN DANIA WITHE YOU.
GOKU, FEGETA, DREIN AND GOHON
"What?" Bulma said, surprised.
"I'm sorry, but that's all I can make out."
Diana looked at the clock. "Well, it's almost eight, but where the heck is 'Cringe Forresst'?"
"I have no idea."
Bulma chuckled a little. "You really need to teach that man how to write."
Diana was growing impatient. "And spell, but what are we going to do abou…. Hey, turn that letter over."
I looked down at the letter and tilted my head. As I turned it over and looked a big grin began to take over my face.
"Well, what does it say?"
I read it aloud again.
I JUST WANTED TO TELL YOU THAT WE WILL MEET YOU TOMORROW AT 8:OO a.m AT 'KRENGE FOREST'. AS YOU ENTER, YOU WILL SEE A LONG RIVER. IF YOU
WILL FOLLOW IT A COUPLE OF MILES YOU WILL COME TO A CLEARING. WE WILL MEET YOU THERE. HOPE YOU WILL COME, AND, HEY WILL YOU PLEASE
BRING BULMA AND DIANA WITH YOU?
GOHAN, DAD, DARIEN AND VEJITA
"Darien huh?" I said as I looked at Diana.
"Yeah, that's his name."
"Well come on!" Bulma yelled. "We don't want to be late!"
Diana and I went upstairs to change. She had nothing else to wear, so she put on her dress from last night. The shirt I was wearing of Goku's was soooo
comfy, I had an idea. I went in his closet and got dressed.
Ten Minutes Later
Diana went down the stairs giggling. Bulma just stared at her. Then I came down. Bulma gasped
."ChiChi what are you wearing?!" She asked.
"Some of Goku's clothes."
"SOME of it?! More like ALL of it! Right down to the boots, cuffs, and his sticky-thingy."
"Boe staff Bulma."
"Whatever!" Diana cut in. "Let's just get going or we'll be late!"
"What are you in such a hurry for?! Last night you were so mad at Darien and now you want to hurry up to see him! Why do you care if we're late?"
I put the staff back into its sheath and Bulma grabbed her purse. When we were outside, Bulma threw the car capsule outside and we hopped in. We
started heading for our destination.
On the way there, I couldn't stop thinking about those ninjas. Could they have been the guys? Nah. Vegeta wouldn't go for something like that. Vegeta
and Darien were too smart to do something that dumb. Goku on the other hand… Unless it was his idea, or they really wanted us to forgive them.
"Hey guys." I thought out loud.
"What?" They both said.
"Bulma, your house was robbed right?"
"Yeah, by those ninjas."
"What did they take?"
"One of my lab tables."
"What's up ChiChi?" Diana cut in.
"Do you think… those ninjas were the guys?"
Bulma and Diana looked at each other.
"Nah." They said in unison.
Well, I guess I'm just going to have to wait and see when we get there.
