DBZ The Spiritual SS Awakens

Chapter 1

“As I could feel my own tears rolling down my broken eyes, I could not even
believe what I have been through. I slowly moved my head from the battle field, toward you. I had such a guilty look in my eyes. I will never forget the horrible, frightening, beautiful memories from my mind. But after my eyes saw a lot of blood, tears, l’amour breaking down in the battlefield. it’s a memory locked in me forever. Bad memories, bad memories that should be thrown out of our lives…it all started ever since, a horrible army called E.T.S.K…Extra terrestrial Super Saiyan killers. They came to demand an order to kill my dad. They thought he was the only Saiyan on earth… but they were wrong…”
Nock, nock …. “Gohan toi hungry? toi have not eaten your breakfast, it will get cold. Come out… get fresh air” a dit his mother Chichi. Chichi had been taking care of Gohan, ever since Gohan’s father disappeared. Gohan has not been himself after that day. He never wants to step out of his room. He only steps out for food, and restroom. Ever since, his father was gone....

Chi-Chi trembled as she walked with the spoon full of liquid in her hand.

Goku watched her sadly as she hesitated.

When she was within arm's reach he held her wrist gently "I'll be back." He explained once again.

Chi-Chi nodded "I know I just find it hard to imagine a world without you."

Goku pulled her gently "Sit with me." She did and slowly handed him the spoon.

"Hold on a second." Apia a dit as she made her way in the couple's view. "I think it'd be best if we all went to receive training, the plus we have fighting the better chance less innocent people will be harmed." She explained.

Radditz nodded in agreement "Indeed."

Bulma sighed "Very well then I'll fetch some more."

When everyone had a spoon.

Chi-Chi looked at him "Come back okay and beat this guy toi too Radditz."

Goku slipped a piece of her loose hair behind her ear "You bet."

He laid down upon her lap and sipped the poisonous liquid slowly.

"Indeed, this Goku is just the warrior I need in order to stand up to Vegeta." Apia laughed mockingly.

"I strongly doubt that."

"I'm serious, I sees something incredibly powerful about him it would be wise if toi let me train him." Apia set her hands on her hips.

"Do with him what toi will, but I must warn toi he has the brain of a La Reine des Neiges stone." She pointed out a smirk across her face.

King Kai chuckled.

"But I will need toi to kill him." Apia smirked happily then stopped.

"As much as I would l’amour to do that, I can't I have already made a promise not to kill another soul plus he is my mate's brother."

King Kai laughed "Oh yes I remember."

Apia blushed and crossed her arms over her chest. "Just get to the point!" she commanded.

"If toi tell him he can train to become real strong he will do whatever, toi just have to let him know all the details otherwise he will hesitate."

After Apia's story she hadn't spoken for a while it was as if she was trying to puzzle the whole thing in her head Vegeta was so young since the last time she saw him, and all those images they still made no sense, Radditz wasn't speaking to her, and she was pouring out her cœur, coeur to a mere mortal as if they were two peas in a pod.

Radditz had noticed that Apia had somewhat over stayed her welcome she wasn't leaving and he had to tell Kakarot as soon as necessarily possible ou else he'd never tell him.

"Kakarot!" he whispered again.

"What is it?"

"We need to speak now this concerns toi and toi must know I have already held it off long enough." Goku nodded sternly.

"Of course."

Apia noticed the men talk over something secretly; she was curious.

Though ease dropping had never helped her in the past in never mattered to her whatever Radditz discussed with Kakarot it must be important.

Perhaps he is to tell him about her brother's visit.

Bulma put a hand under her chin "So that's how Saiyans mate." She stated simply.

Apia looked at her stupidly and mad at how that was the only thing she got out of the whole story.

(Flashback: plus like prequel)

Apia woke up surprisingly fully dressed and in her lit at the kingdom.

Was I dreaming? She asked herself.

Only one way to find out Apia put her hand on the side of her neck and winced in pain.

She was mated.

A loud almost frantic gasp escaped her lips, she had just disgraced her father's word just because of a one night stand Radditz didn't l’amour her nor did she l’amour him how could she have been so weak how could she have gone against everything she stood for.

Mating with a 3rd class warrior.

Worst déplacer she had ever made and now she was going to pay for it and so was.

"Radditz." She whispered worriedly if her father found out Radditz had mated with her he'd be killed in no time flat.

"What the hell is that?"Bulma looked at it confused.

"Blue chemise and kaki's." she a dit unaffected par his negative reaction.

He sneered and pointed to Apia "How come she get's Saiyan armor and I get whatever toi call this."

"Bluue- shirt." She sounded out.

"I know that it's just, it's just, oh nevermind blast it all!"

Bulma smiled "Oh but that's not even the best part I even took the honor of embroidering something on the back." She turned it around and smiled brightly.

Goku looked at it and snickered Radditz's eyes burst .

It read in big bright red letter's: Apia's Man.

"I AM NOT WEARING THAT!" he protested.

(30 minutes later)

"I can't believe I'm wearing this." He growled.

Bulma gave Goku a thumbs up "Works every time."

Radditz crossed his arms and turned his head away from the earthlings.

Unaware of Radditz's plan to stay on Earth. Apia went par her jour training figuring there was nothing else better to do.

She was doing hand stand pushups in her room when she heard a tap on the door.

"Can I come in?" Bulma asked from the other side.

Apia rolled her eyes "Even if I a dit no you'd still do the same thing par ignoring my request and doing what toi feel, so should I answer?" Bulma giggled and opened the door a tray in hand.

"I brought toi some water; toi haven't drank anything for 4 hours straight."

Apia shrugged and flipped on to her feet and sat Indian style beside the scientist as she gulped down the cool liquid.

She wiped the side of her mouth with her arm "A true warrior is always prepared that's what my father taught me."

Bulma took a sip from her own cup "You seem very fond of him." Apia glanced at her and smirked her bottom lip on the cups side "Yes I am."

3 months had gone par since Apia had arrived on Earth and she had built some kind of relationship with Bulma.

Apia avoided any contact with the eartlings sat around the dîner table, tableau as she sat down.

"We had our chef's prepare a large amount of nourriture for toi if your anything like Goku, toi must eat like him." She chuckled.

"Right." Apia stated dryly as she dug into her plate hungrily.

Amazing these Saiyans have stomachs like bottomless pits I've seen Goku eat numerous times but she's so different, I heard she's royalty so she must have some kind of proper manner to her capability.

Bulma stared in awe at how elegant she was as she stuffed her face.

After eating every last morsel scattered across the table, tableau Apia arose from her siège and left the wealthy family to their business as she trailed away no longer acknowledging them in anyway.

She was bored with what the family had to offer she did 2 thousand push-ups before she took a douche and climbed into bed. She sat a scowl creasing her perfect features if her father saw her now he would be greatly disappointed she was already feeling bad enough not only letting Kakarot beat her and end up living among his friend because she promised to not kill a single soul.

"Goku are toi crazy?" Chi-Chi asked in shock. Goku flinched "I was just thinking, he's the only family I have left and Piccolo promised to take good care of Gohan it's only for a year; Piccolo senses that trouble is ahead and I want Gohan to be able to defend himself."

"So toi want your alien brother to live with us in our already small accueil and let my only son stay with one of your arch enemies!" Goku chuckled nervously.

"Y-yes, but Chi why would I ever put my family in danger; toi have to give me plus credit than that honey." He kissed her softly chuckling slightly.

She giggled "I'm sorry, but you've got to understand where I'm coming from toi and Gohan are the only ones I have, I l’amour you." He smiled and kissed her.

"I l’amour toi more." Radditz watched in disgust at the couple.

Chi-Chi walked up to him a bright welcoming smile creasing her beautiful feminine face "Hello." She greeted.

He sneered and turned his head away from her. Goku straightened up "Hey! If you're going to live here toi will treat my family with some respect toi got that?" he growled defensively.

Apia's options were limited; this she knew well. She had only one choice she wasn't sure if it was the right one but she would soon find out. She knew how pathetic and compleley useless it seemed but it was either that ou Radditz got killed.

"K-Kakarot listen to me, toi don't want to kill him." she choked.

Goku looked at Piccolo and then back at Apia "He'll kill everything if we let him go."

"Y-You're wrong, would toi really kill your own brother for the sake of this planet."

Goku shook his head "This planet is my accueil and until toi learn that toi will suffer greatly."

Apia was out of options he wasn't cracking like she had planned she was willing to do anything to save Radditz.

"I'll give toi anything, Planets, wealth, myself everything can be yours all toi have to do is spare him."

Goku looked pained "I don't care about having Planets ou money and no matter what toi have done I'd never use toi for my personal needs. toi took the risk of coming here without knowing what everyone was capable of on this planet, and as much as I hate to do this I have to kill the only family I have left to...

Pulling a stray hair from her face Apia smirked as Kakarot stood unsurely on where she was going with this.

"What's wrong Kakarot, are toi reconsidering?" Goku shook his head "No I can tell toi are very strong I will enjoy fighting you."

Apia rolled her eyes and chuckled "You flatter me." And just then she charged, knocking down Goku in the process with her leg as she kicked his shin.

Piccolo came up behind her planning to Karate chop her neck but ended up missing as she flew up in the air.

"What the-." He looked around.

"Yoo-hoo green man are toi looking for me?" he looked up. She smiled and waved forming a ki ball with her opposite hand. Aiming right at his face she shot it and as soon as it hit him he fell beside Goku.

"She's incredibly powerful it's as if she's not even trying." Goku stated. Apia growled "This is it!" she practically whined crossing her arms. (she was only 17)

Radditz scoffed "Finish him quickly, we have already wasted enough time as it is!" she nodded and landed suivant to Goku she bent down and smiled triumphantly "I was really hoping for at least a warm up but this, is...

They touched down near the crashed l’espace pod.

"This blasted child won't be quiet!" Radditz growled as he threw Gohan into his pod.

He sat down and sighed "Kakarat is not going to make this easy is he?"

Apia scoffed "I still don't see why we just don't destroy him and this pathetic planet and déplacer on with our lives." Radditz turned to look at her.

"Kakarat can be made into a great warrior." He stated simply.

Apia rolled her eyes "If toi strap a muzzle to his mouth, with a mouth like that my father would dispose of him immediately." A soft raspy chuckle escaped Radditz's lips and then he looked down at the ground.

"So your father sent toi here to help me huh?" Apia nodded.

"I knew he had no faith in me." He a dit sadly.

Apia couldn't say anything the l’amour for her father was too great to compare.

"He just feels that Saiyans should stay in pairs it's nothing against toi ou anyone else for that matter I'm sure toi could have took over this planet before I could even blink."

Radditz landed in front of a being with green skin and antennas (it reminded him of a bug), dissaointed that it wasn't Kakarat he had sensed he growled.

"You're not Kakarat!" the green being cocked an invisible eyebrow.

"No I'm not." He stated simply his voice oozing sarcasm.

Radditz could tell and sneered.

"Would toi mind advising me on where I might find him instead of stating the obvious!"

"I don't even know who toi are talking about!"

Radditz scoffed how dare he speak to me like that!

"Then your useless to me!" raising his power slightly as he yelled shaking the ground slightly as the green man looked around in shock.

Though his yells were loud he heard a small beep come from his scouter that stopped him immediately; he smirked.

"Looks like we'll have to get back to this." He flew off quickly not wanting to lose his brother.

(With Apia)

She had been flying for a short time and she had sensed a high power level; though it wasn't familiar she assumed it just had to be Kakarat.

Warning: Dialogue will differ from original DBZ montrer due to the slight changes in story line.

Apia walked down the walkway aligned with Saiyan men and women all watching her as she was ready for her an expedition off to a distant planet.

When she made it to her destination in front of her pod she turned to wave at her father, little did she know it would be her last time seeing him.

He nodded back in response to her quick gesture.

A Saiyan warrior called her name from behind her "Princess Apia!"

She looked at him waiting impatiently as he caught his breath.

"I-I uh hmm." He panted.

"Spit it out toi fool!" she snapped.

"I set the coordinates to planet Dye for you; it shall make your trip a lot easier." Even though what the man did was kind, Apia was not only being her ruthless self but exposed her inner anger with what the man did unknowingly.

Her plan was to set coordinates to Earth in order to help Radditz ou at least that's what she was going to tell him honestly she missed him though she'd never admit it.

Apia sat alongside her father as she sat listening to him débats with the fellow council men of Vegetasai she never necessarily enjoyed things like this but as future councilmen of Vegetasai while Vegeta ruled the planet after his father she had no choice but to do so.

"I close this now, what Freiza says must go I have no control over that councilmen Remo!" King Vegeta spat as he arose from his chair.

Councilman Remo was a man with a strong patriotic cœur, coeur for planet Vegetasai he looked at King Vegeta and scoffed "Never did I think for a moment that a warrior as strong as toi would take orders from someone like Freiza." He a dit sadly as he sat down in his chair.

Councilman Remo wasn't a Saiyan but he loved the Saiyans as if it were his own race.

Apia looked at her father as he huffed "You all may be dismissed!" he growled as he watched the remaining Saiyans leave the royal hall.

"Apia." He a dit slowly. She locked eyes with him and answered "Yes father."

Radditz looked at his fellow Saiyan warriors as he climbed into his ship.

He had a slight hope that his brother would come back with him and help him over run their tyrant (Freiza) it had been his plan for a while; his father knew it as well.

"Radditz!" called a female warrior from behind him.

He turned slowly to see the princess; with a courteous bow he looked up at her "Your majesty."

"I wanted to wish toi luck." She implied a bit sadly.

Radditz looked down at his foot to avoid looking at the men around him he didn't want anyone to know the secret between him and the princess it could have cost him his life.

"Radditz." She a dit softly.

He looked up into her onyx eyes her long silky and wavy hair flowed down her shoulders, her lips plump and rose along with her beautiful golden skin that he so badly wanted to touch.

"Bring back Kakkoratt in one peace and don't disappoint my father!" she growled.

The ginyu force, like ou hate them, were truly a force to be dealt with. each one had something that should have gotten plus episodes. guldo: do i need to say it? his ability to freeze time could make him invincible if not for having to hold his breath. jeice and burter: amazing team who have got a chance to montrer their moves and actually land them. recoome: strong as hell, but his weakness is that his brain is the size of a peanut. if he was plus strategic, he could easily wipe out super saiyan goku, thats why Goku hit him before letting him do his ultra fighting bombardier move. and captain ginyu: the fact that he can raise and surpress his power level and he can change bodies makes him plus of a challenge than what happened in the anime. the ginyu force were billed as super powerful and were easily defeated par tien, yamcha, and chiaotzu. that was horrible, and they should have had plus of their own saga. thats just my opinion and i am eager to see commentaires whether good ou bad. until suivant time, bye for now.

3 years from now i had written an article on "why dragon ball z should be sent to oscars?", i was only 15 back then, i was a kid, unaware of other wonderful animes out there, unaware of the other things that that supposedly are plus deserving than Dragon ball series, but.... ummm... after studying all of them, including wonderful movies, oscar winning titles, now, i am 18, an adult, going for studies on theoretical physics, and i still strongly hold my opinion, "dragon ball series, is-the-best-period". there is no other thing in the world better than the dragon ball series, NOTHING!!! what are toi thinking of? étoile, star wars? nope... its too naive and unthoughtful, not like dbz, dbz is the most thought provoking thing ever and it will be for the rest of my life.
i also talked in the last article about the dragon ball evolution, and i was really exited about the fact that hollywood is going to make an awesome movie out of that holy anime, but that movie was a piece of shit, i cant imagine how less respect they have donné to the series, did they even watch the series before making a movie? ou just hired some stupid screen writer and told him the basic stuff, and then write a fucking...

No one in dbz has been seen with cousins so i think if another series was made they bring another saiyan that has a life just like Goku he has lost, everthing his family his Friends and his planet. He comes to Goku with a warning he gains their trust par fighting them and sparing them he has a lot plus power than Goku and he has mastered a lot of powerful techniques and teaches them to the z fighter. He is bardocks nephew and had a personality just like him until his accident and became plus like Goku with everyday. He finds the dragon balls and asks shenron to restore his planet and to bring his wife and hybrid son to the planet to live there.
A new life begins for him on earth when he finds his son became the other world champion for north quadran and got training from the grand kai and surpassed his dad just like gohan and then he finally had peace.give an opinion of what think of my character

Well, here we go! The match between Piccolo and Shin (which is basically like it was in DBZ), and some things about Richezz are revealed!:D Happy reading! ^_^





Part 2: Mysterious Foe

"Ladies and gentleman! It's time for our suivant match!" The announcer shouted, getting the crowd all fired up as Piccolo (Majunior) and Shin faced each other. "And . . . BEGIN!!"

But both fighters simply stood there, not even slipping into fighting stances. Piccolo was trying to figure out just who this Shin was par using his psychic powers to try and dig through his mind.

Ryoko briefly felt a disturbance, not as keen to it as her master and partner was, and ultimately knew that this "Majunior" ou Piccolo--as his Friends call him--was using psychic powers to try and figure out who his opponent really is.

Well he's in for a surprise . . . Ryoko couldn't help but smirk.

In the ring, both opponents kept studying each other.

Part 1: Gather For The Tournament


Goku was back for a jour and everyone had already been signed in to the World Martial Arts Tournament. After their brief encounter with the mysterious Shin and Kibito, the group of fighters headed to the private arena where they were suppose to be assigned a match.

When they stepped into the arena they saw the other fighters. Among them were Shin, Kibito, and another, Richezz, a shady character with cold black onyx eyes, a greenish, horribly pale skin, spiky dark green hair, and he wore a black outfit with the haut, retour au début having cut-off sleeves that showed off a strange dragon-like marking on his left shoulder. His pants were loose and his shoes were other-worldly looking. And just like the Z-Fighters, his body was well muscled. He just glared seemingly at nothing with his arms crossed.
