Disclaimer: I only own this story (I think...) and all the characters besides Bulma, Vegeta and Clint (I kinda based him on Clint Eastwood, if you didnít notice. Well, his name at least).
Story Title: Wild Horses
Chapter Title: Comfort
Notes: So, how did you all like chapter one of "Wild Horses"? ::cheers in background along with noisemakers:: I really wanted to get it out 2 weeks ago, but that damn Internet worm thing messed up ff.net (at least thatís what I think). Iím not sure whatís going to happen in the story, I am basically not a huge planner with my stories. The only thing I know is gonna be in the epilogue and itís super cute and super funny! ..... Oh God.... camp talk is dragging me in... ::screams in fear:: And I just came up with (well, just meaning last week) an awesome idea for a new story!!! ^^ Okay, enough incessant rambling! Enjoy chapter 2!
"......" = Talking
*......* = Thinking
Bulma screamed as loud as she could while slung over this strange manís shoulder and being carried out of the bar. Until finally Vegeta couldnít take it anymore.
"Shut up woman or I will make you!" he yelled. She didnít stop. So as he walked past a post that held up the wooden shade (I donít know what itís called...), he punched it, snapping it in two and causing the wooden shade to come tumbling down, inches away from Bulmaís face. She fell silent and stopped moving, causing Vegeta to smirk. *Finally,* he though, mentally sighing.
He stopped when he reached his horse, then threw her on so she was hanging over the horses back just like she was on Vegetaís shoulder, then he hopped on. He turned back and smirked back at her, who looked up at him in fear. "Better hold on, you wouldnít want to fall off." Her eyes widened and she started scrambling to get off, only making Vegeta smirk more, he grabbed her wrist and yelled, "Yah!" while kicking Prince on the side, sending him into a speedy gallop. Bulma screamed and jumped into a side-saddle position while wrapping her arms around Vegetaís waist. *I am going to enjoy this,* he thought, smirking yet again.
When they finally stopped at where Vegeta "lived," Bulma immediately jumped off and fell over. Vegeta got off his horse and started walking towards her. Bulma started backing away on her butt, taking in short, raspy breaths every second. Vegeta frowned, at this point, he wouldnít be surprised if she started hyperventilating. He walked up to her and kneeled in front of her, taking her chin in his hand.
"You are mine now little one," he whispered huskily to her, watching in amusement as she passed out.
Bulma woke up in a cold, drippy cave, but she was covered in a warm, animal-skin blanket. She was also laying on a comfy pile of large animal-skin blankets. And her head was resting on a soft pillow also made of animal-skin, but most definitely filled with soft feathers of some type of bird. *Man, this guy must be very talented in making things. He obviously made all of this stuff...* she thought, looking around the cold, damp cave. Then, her memory came flooding back to her: That man kidnapped her! She had to escape somehow. She stood up, the blanket dropping to the floor, and was immediately swallowed by the cold. She grabbed the blanket and wrapped it around herself then started walking towards what she thought was the entrance, because she saw a little sliver of daylight up ahead not too far. The only light in the cave was from the torches that were posted along the sides of the cave.
When she reached the sliver of daylight, she was crushed to find that there was a very large, and obviously very heavy boulder covering the opening. "That bastard!! He trapped me inside!" she thought aloud.
Just as Vegeta thought he would, he did. He needed the clothesmith (?) back to make undergarments for his "little one." He walked into the shop, the little bell ringing as he opened the door. The man looked up to greet the new potential customer, only to be shocked to see his captor from not too long ago. He gasped and started stammering out God knows what, Vegeta had no idea what he was saying.
"Why hello there Thomas Rathner," he smirked. "So we meet again..." All Thomas could do was shake uncontrollably and stutter more about nothing.
Finally he regained enough of his composure to say, "What do you want from me now? What did I ever do to you?!"
"Hey," Vegeta retorted, "all I need is another pair of silk undergarments."
"Another?? Isn't the one pair enough for you?? This stuff isn't cheap you know! Not for YOU of coarse, but for me it is! I have to pay for it!" Thomas yelled, his anger getting the best of him. All Vegeta did was quirk an eyebrow, causing Thomas to realize his outburst and cower behind the counter. Vegeta only laughed.
"Not for me. For a uh..... lady friend of mine." Thomas raised his head a little bit above the counter and looked awkwardly at the man dressed in all black.
"A lady friend?" Thomas asked, raising an eyebrow.
"Yes. A lady friend. Now you're going to make her undergarments whether you like it or not."
Thomas started shaking again. "Um ah... h-how do you w-want them?"
"I want a bra and underwear, silk, and red and black like mine."
"H-how do you want the colors together? Like, one part red and one part black?"
"No. Kind of like a flame on each part. A red flame thing on the bottom of the bra and the underwear, then black above it," Vegeta explained, blushing slightly.
"O uh... okay... I can do that..." Thomas stuttered.
"How long will it take?" Vegeta questioned.
Thomas thought about it for a minute, then answered, "Maybe a day. But I'm going to need her measurements."
"Oh I got those," Vegeta said smirking.
Bulma had been in the cave for hours, she really didn't know. She had been spending most of her time trying to find a way out of the cave, but there seemed to be no way out.
*I guess that son of a bitch planned that...* Bulma thought, plopping back down on the surprisingly soft "bed" that was on the cave floor. She sighed, exasperated, and decided to sleep the time away until she was able to escape. She lay down and covered herself in the warm blankets. She would get out of here, she had to, she vowed to herself she would get away and back to her normal life.
Vegeta was on his way back, his "present" for his new woman in a box in the bag on his saddle. He was about ĺ of the way back when the sky, which was already very dark, being as it was about 10 o'clock at night, turned even darker. There was a bright flash of lightening, lighting up his dark surroundings and the loud rumbling of thunder in the distance. *Oh shit...* he thought. *That woman is probably gonna freak out...* With that thought, he kicked Prince and yelled, "Yah!", trying to get there as fast as possible.
Bulma awoke to a loud rumbling of thunder, her eyes shooting open, wide like saucers. She looked to the large rock blocking the entrance, and from the little opening that was in it, brilliant flashes of light were shining through every now and then. Bulma hated storms, they scared the shit out of her. (Probably not in the actual series, but come on! It works good for the story! ^^) She ducked her head under the covers and started shaking uncontrollably.
Every time she heard even the tiniest thunder, she would shriek and bury herself even more under the covers. She was laying on her side with her legs up to her chest, teeth clenched, eyes glued shut. She didn't want to be alone right now. As much as she hated it, she wished that strange, yet very good looking man was here with her, to give her companionship in her time of fear.
Vegeta could see the cave and hear his woman's screams of terror, this made him speed up more. He arrived at the cave and vaulted off of Prince, leading him as quickly as possible to his own stable. He moved the rock as Prince stood there patiently, his head shooting up to look at the sky with every flash of lightning and every rumble of thunder. As soon as the rock was moved out of the way enough for Prince to get in, Vegeta turned to him and motioned for him to go in, which he did obediently.
Right when Prince was all the way in, Vegeta moved the rock back in place then ran to the entrance of the main cave, his "house." He moved the rock out of the way, slipped inside, then moved it back. He turned around looked at the makeshift bed where there was a big, shaking lump in the middle of it. He just then realized that he was completely soaked, therefor he shook himself off like a dog. He walked slowly up to the extremely scared woman under the covers and kneeled by the bed. He reached out and touched the lump lightly, causing her to scream loudly. He covered his ears immediately, so as to keep the hideously high pitched screeching from breaking his ear drums.
"Damn woman! Don't scream so damn loud!!" Vegeta protested, causing Bulma to peak her head out from under the covers. A relieved expression blew across her face as she moved out more.
"Well I am soooorry, but I hate storms!" she yelled, her voice shaking.
"Well you don't have to kill my ears. I am going to dry off and changed so I can go to bed, I am tired. I suggest you do the same," Vegeta said, walking deeper into the cave, grabbing something that was bright red and black.
Bulma raised an eyebrow. "What do you mean 'do the same'? Change into what?" Vegeta only smirked and pointed to the box laying next to the pile of blankets. She crawled over to the box, opened it and lifted out black and red silk bra and panties. She gasped.
"What the hell is this??" she cried, looking angrily over at Vegeta.
"Your bed clothes," he responded simply, like it was nothing.
"What kind of sick, twisted plot to get me into bed is this??" she screamed.
"Would you rather sleep in your dress?"
This shut her up. She thought about it for a second, hmphed and moved off to an opposite corner of the cave. Vegeta smirked and walked off to change.
Bulma slowly took off her dress, looked behind her to see if that man was looking, then put the undergarments on. She was amazed; they fit perfectly! How did he know her measurements? She walked back to the bed, only to see that Vegeta was already in bed, smirking up at her. She glared down at him.
"Pervert..." she mumbled, slipping into bed. "So what's your name?"
"My name is Vegeta," he said, turning over to look at her.
"My name's Bulma."
"I knew that," Vegeta replied. But before Bulma could respond to that, a loud crack of thunder shook the ground of the cave, making Bulma scream yet again and unconsciously curl up against Vegeta in fright. Vegeta looked down at the beautiful woman curled against him shaking like a leaf. The only thing he could think of to do was put his arms around her, instantly making her stop shaking and crying.
Bulma felt unusually comfortable and perfect in Vegeta's arms. He calmed her, and that comforting feeling he gave her made her sigh and fall asleep.
They both fell asleep that night in a warm embrace. This surprised Vegeta, because with his normal women, he would have slept with them and dropped them by now, but she was different somehow. She fit perfectly in his arms, like it was meant to be. Thinking of this, Vegeta fell asleep, wondering what tomorrow would bring him.
