Have I Told You Lately...
(Part 4)

"I had a dream…" he said quietly, trying to explain it, but getting caught immediately.
Bulma looked up, and was about to make a sarcastic remark, like 'So did King' when she
noticed a slight gleam and far off look in his eye. She decided he was actually serious
about something else other than fighting.
"What happened?" she asked, trying to look in his eyes, but failing. Vegita looked up.
Bulma noticed his eyes were closed. She looked at him closer, and gasped when she saw a
clear, bright tear slid out from under his closed eyes. She watched it slid down his cheek,
leaving a clear, shiny trail. She reached up, and wiped it away gently, wondering what in
the world would make Vegita, all high and mighty Saiyan Prince, cry.
"You died…" he said quietly. Bulma's reaction was priceless. She stared at him with such
a mix of horror, confusion, sadness, pity, and fear that it puzzled any face. She gently
touched Vegita's cheek, now understanding why he had kept his emotions locked up. It hurt
him to think of his family leaving him.
"Vegita…what happened?" she made Vegita face her, a look of mixed emotions in his eyes.
"We grew up happily…until we started fighting…" Vegita began slowly, but hesitated.
"Every couple fights…" Bulma said gently.
"Not like us…we fought everyday…" Vegita's voice was compassionate, and he seemed to have
a split personality for a moment.
"What happened next?" Bulma decided to put the matter aside for a later time.
"You died."
"You missed me…didn't you?"
"Yes…I did."
"And then I looked into everyday, surrounded by things that reminded me of you…" Vegita
looked up at Bulma quietly. Bulma looked back at him, searching in his eyes.
They savored the moment. Bulma smiled weakly.
"Then what?" she asked again, some what feeling like she was prodding a little too deep
into Vegita's life. She shook off the feeling, he hadn't complained so far, he would if he
had felt that someone was invading his life. Bulma looked back out to the oceans, to look
for a possible answer there.
"Then…then I told everyone…" he said quietly. Bulma's head shot up.
"What did they say?" she asked, almost as if she were asking a fortune teller about the
"Not much…It didn't seem like they missed you…" Vegita replied coldly. Bulma's heart sank.
She felt as if Vegita were telling her the future…and her friends not caring if she died
or not…that broke her heart.
"Oh…" Vegita could hear the sadness in her voice, "What went on next?" she asked again,
trying to get her head off of the subject.
"Then…I came here…to this spot…and thought a little…" he answered, slowly, solemnly, "That
brat of yours came…and Kakarott came along too…Kakarott…damn him…" Vegita scowled.
"Why? What did he do to you?" Bulma looked a little worried. Vegita smirked, then shook
his head in an angry gesture.
"He took that brat away from me…he took that damn brat away…" Vegita said coldly, slamming
his fist into the ground. Bulma jumped back.
"What did he do?" she asked, suddenly worried about Trunks.
"He played with that brat…he acted like he was the father of the nuisance…he took him away…
he made that brat think that Kakarott was his father…" he said, anger filled his voice,
and he slammed his fist into the ground again. Bulma stopped him from a third slam. She
hugged him tightly.
"That would never happen…" she said quietly.
"Why?" it was Vegita's turn to ask the questions.
"Because…you should hear him talk…he'll come running up to me in the middle of something
and say 'Daddy smiled at me! He really did!' or something like that. He's very fond of you,
that boy…He looks up to you…you should be proud." Bulma smiled.
"Seriously?" Vegita was surprised. Bulma nodded, then turned her head back to the ocean
and far away stars.
"So…what happens next?" she asked him, curious, but trying to not prob so deep. Vegita had
been waiting for that question for a while.
"I died." He said simply. Bulma looked at him.
"Nani?" she looked worried, and afraid. Vegita chuckled.
"I commited suicide you might say…" Vegita said quietly. Bulma grabbed his shirt and
started shaking him.
"NANI?!" she was shocked and afraid. Vegita looked up at her, a look of confusion on his
"So…you don't want to be with me?" he asked her. It was Bulma's turn to be confused.
"Of course…I mean…I…" Bulma hesitated, "Yes I want to be with you!" she finally cried.
"Well I died to be with you.…" Vegita said slowly.
"Oh…in that case you can die…" Bulma smiled as she said this. Vegita smirked.
"Gee…and I thought I was cruel…" Vegita chuckled.
"I get it from you…" Bulma replied. Vegita shrugged, then turned to watch the night sky
once again. Bulma slowly cuddled up to Vegita. She reached out and grabbed his hand. Vegita
didn't resist it. He smiled slowly, a look of total contentment crossed his face. He
reached out and wrapped a hand around Bulma's waist. He pulled her close, and ran a gloved
hand through her hair. Bulma smiled in return and laid her head on his shoulder. Bulma
realized that this was probably the only time she would ever see Vegita's 'feminine side'.
Bulma smiled to herself and held back a small laugh. She knew that this would be pretty
much the very last time that Vegita would ever have a normal conversation. He's changed a
lot…he won't admit it…but he knows he's changed…Bulma thought to herself. Usually he would
never even come close to talking normal to someone…and now look what happens…he plays with
Trunks! Bulma held back another laugh. But at least I know he loves me now…and at least I
know he'll never leave me…like when I was pregnant with Trunks…but he's changed…he wouldn't
dare leave me now…that memory is a bad one…She smiled and cuddled closer to Vegita. He
loves me…I know it…this is his way of saying it…Bulma sighed and turned her attention to
the sky.
"So…what does the courageous Saiyan Prince plan to do from here?" Bulma teased. Vegita
"Nothing, I've learned my lesson." He answered calmly. Bulma looked up at her husband for
a minute.
"And what lesson would that be?" she asked.
"I don't think they have a name for it yet…" Vegita replied, a smirk on his lips. Bulma
shook her head in regret and snuggled back down. She was about to doze off when Vegita
nudged her sharply with his elbow.
"What do you want?" Bulma half asked, half whined. She looked up to see Vegita pointing at
something. She sighed and followed his finger half-heartedly.
Her eyes lit up when she saw a shooting star. She poked Vegita in the side, not caring if
he wouldn't even notice.
"Hey, are you going to make a wish?" she asked him. Vegita smirked.
"Are you?" he returned the question. Bulma smiled, then nodded. She turned back to the sky
and closed her eyes. Vegita watched, almost amazed, as Bulma's lips moved in silent speech.
He shrugged and turned to the sky. He looked up for a minute and thought. Smirking, he
closed his eyes, but didn't move his lips. He said his wish over and over in his head, then
opened his eyes slowly, expecting the world to rejoice. He frowned when he found Bulma
watching him. He scowled and turned away.
"So…what did you wish for?" Vegita's gruff voice broke through Bulma's previous thoughts.
"Can't say." She answered him.
"Why not?" Vegita's voice was cold, but his eyes showed a bit of curiousity and
"It won't come true." She said simply. Vegita raised his eye brow slightly. He smirked.
"Want to know what I wished for?" Vegita asked, putting his hand around Bulma's waist once
again. Bulma nodded and kept her eyes glued to Vegita's.
Vegita smirked and leaned over, coming nose to nose, and face to face with Bulma. He
closed his eyes and kissed her greedily, but lightly and gently, like he always did. He
pulled apart from Bulma, leaving her breathless. He smirked and stood up. Holding one hand
out, Vegita pulled Bulma up to her feet.
"That's what I wished for." He said with a smirk. He grabbed Bulma by her waist, leviated,
and flew off toward the now rising sun.
Bulma held onto Vegita tightly. She smiled warmly at him, and snuggled down against his
chest. She looked on in awe as they passed over the red and pink waves of the ocean, that
reflected the sun's warm glow. Bulma smiled and fell asleep against Vegita's warm body,
not even caring if they were a couple hundred feet off of the ground, she was safe. She
smiled, then closed her eyes and drifted off into a peaceful sleep.
