  Yeah, sorry folks, had to do it.  My old cure for songs running through my head wasn’t stopping this one from going over, and over and over.

So, this is my first song fic.  It’s a Three point POV, toggling between Chichi, Goku and Vegeta.  I tried to keep it as present tense as I could, but if I have failed, please point this out to me.  One of the many things I need to work on in my writing.

The song is “Dry Your Eyes” by The Streets.  I do not own the song or the words to the song.

   And as usual……

The End


      This was going to be difficult.  He doesn’t take hints well, so I am just going to have to say it.

     “Goku, it’s over.”  I said.  He gave me a funny look, as if to ask ‘What’s over?’  Even when I am trying to be direct with him, I have to go further than I’d like in spelling things out.

      “Our marriage, it’s over.”  Oh Kami, there it is.  Disbelief flashed through his eyes, before he looked away.  I knew this would hurt him, but I can’t live this way anymore.

In a single moment your whole life can turn ‘round

I stand there staring for a minute, straight into the ground

Lookin’ to the left slightly, then lookin’ back down

World feels like it’s cavin’ in – proper sorry frown

      We’re at one of our favorite picnicking places when, ‘Wham’ out of nowhere, she hits me with … with THIS.  I knew she hadn’t been the same Chichi I had married when I came back the second time.  She had changed a lot.  I just didn’t think she had changed this much, or maybe in this way.

        “Chichi?”  I felt there had to be something I could do to change this.  This moment wasn’t happening.  Really, it couldn’t be.  Something in her body language told me that it WAS happening, and the way my hands had turned cold told me this wasn’t a dream.  Wasn’t the nightmare I was hoping it was.  I’ve started blabbing, I know I have, but I really can’t even hear the words coming out of my own mouth at the moment. 

Please let me show you where we could only just be, for us

I can change, I can grow, or we could adjust

The wicked thing about us is we always have trust

We can even have an open relationship, if you must

      Her head snapped up at that last comment, and not being the baka everyone takes me for, I knew I had hit the nail on the head.  “You’ve been seeing someone else?”  It was really more of a statement than a question.

I look at her, she stares almost straight back at me

But her eyes glaze over like she’s looking straight through me

Then her eyes must have closed for what seems an eternity

When they open up, she’s looking down at her feet

       I had no idea why the Baka’s onna had asked me to come out here, in the middle of nowhere.  “Just watch us, he’ll need you.”  Is all that she had told me.  Hn.  I watched the two from a distance, but still, the idot could have sensed me, had he obviously not be so distraught by something that harpy had just said.  I could see it in his body language.  I have NEVER seen Kakarott so thoroughly defeated.  Sure, I had dreamed about it, and now I knew why it had never happened. 

Dry your eyes mate

I know it’s hard to take but her mind has been made up

There’s plenty more fish in the sea

     The way to defeat him, had been through his heart.  Not something I had ever thought of, but I should have.  After all, that’s how he really won that first battle between us.  Rejection.  Of course, even to this date, I don’t think he knows that.  He still insists that had his friends not been there to intervene I would have won. 

He has no idea I still harbor that kind of hurt from his simple ‘No,’ to me.  Phah.

Dry your eyes mate

I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts

But you’ve got to walk away now

It’s over

     I truly hope he’s as ningen as Vegeta says he is.  If my husband got it into his head to be angry rather than be upset by this, well, I certainly don’t have more than a few moments left to my life.  I had to think a long time before I convinced myself to do this.  His power terrifies me.  The second reason, really, that I asked Vegeta to practically spy on this picnic.

        Maybe one day Goku will understand that I am just trying to be fair to him, but today is obviously not that day.  I almost cringe when he reaches a hand out towards me.  I have no reason to, other than my unjust fear.  He’s never hurt me intentionally.

 So then I move my hand up from down by my side

It’s shakin’, my life is crashin’ before my eyes

Turn the palm of my hand up to face the skies

Touch the bottom of her chin and let out a sigh

     I can’t believe this.  She just flinched.  I’ve never hurt her before.  Never raised my hand in anger towards her.  Once again my mind is put into shock.  Not only is she saying she wants a divorce, but somewhere along the way, she’s become afraid of me.  My mouth once again engages without checking with my brain first.

’Cause I can’t imagine my life without you and me

There’s things I can’t imagine doin’, things I can’t imagine seein’

It weren’t suppose to be easy, surely

Please, please, I beg you please

     Even if the words that are coming from my heart, I can see she really isn’t going to be swayed.  I have to wonder who this other person is.  I’ve never caught a scent from them on her.  Maybe she really did try to give our marriage a second chance when I came back. 

     No, this is more than just ‘someone’ else.  I caught a whiff of fear when I unconsciously tried to scent out this ‘other’ person.  Now that I know this, her body language is speaking a second volume to me.

She brings her hands up towards where my hands rested

She wraps her fingers around mine with a softness she’s been blessed with

She peels away my fingers, looks at me and then gestures

By pushing my hand away to my chest from hers

     I still haven’t figured out why Kakarott hasn’t just blasted the woman.  Could a simple ningen mean that much to him?  I sigh, figuring it must be so.  After all, he did try to explain to me once how he became a super sayian, something about fighting for his friends and his family.

  I realize then, I may never understand him.  My transformation had come from nothingness.  The two are as different as fish and birds.  Still understanding that I may never understand him doesn’t bring me any closer to understanding this.

      I’ve seen him when he gets angry.  Why isn’t he angry now?  Instead of anger, I feel pain coming off of him.  If his shoulders are anything to go by, the baka is crying instead of blasting.  I can also swear I heard him begging that weak onna.

I know it’s hard to take but her mind has been made up

There’s plenty more fish in the sea.

     That weak onna is probably one of the many reasons he rejected his heritage when first Radditz and then myself came to earth.  I feel vibrations in the air, and almost freak out before I figure out that the sensation is being caused by me.  I am growling.  My eyes widen as I stop myself. 

      I still want him.  I tried to burry this knowledge, and thought I had succeeded.  I close my eyes.  With the barest of my abilities I thread a thought out to him.  I hit a mental barrier.  One he usually doesn’t have up.

Dry your eyes mate

I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts

But you’ve got to walk away now

It’s over

     Oh Kami, she’s serious.  I can see that, but I was really hoping I could find a way to change her mind.  “What about the kids?”

      “Gohan is almost grown and living in the dorms at Gold Star University,” there is a slight hesitation before she finishes off this last effort argument of mine, “And I’ll be keeping Goten.  He adores you, but he doesn’t really see you as a parent.”

And I am just standing there, I can’t say a word

‘Cause everythin’s just gone

I’ve got nothing

Absolutely nothing

     Ah Crap.  I struck a nerve with that statement.  I know the boys mean a lot to him.  I just didn’t take the time to think about how much they really meant to him.  The question is, is it enough to kill me over?

     It very well may be.  I freeze in place as he reaches out to me again. 

Tryin’ to pull her close out of bare desperation

Put my arms around her tryin’ to change what she’s sayin’

Pull my head level with hers so she might engage in

Look into her eyes to make her listen again

      My voice has taken on a quality that frightens even myself.  “I didn’t plan on coming back permanently this second time.  It’s just a side effect of having to help save the universe.  You were supposed to be happy that I came back.  It’s and opportunity for me to have a second chance at making this family work.”

     I hit nothing with my declaration, except a brick wall and more of that disgusting fear. 

I’m not going to fuckin’, just fuckin’ leave it all now

‘Cause you said it was forever and that was your vow

And you’re going to let our things simply crash and fall down

You’re well out of order now, this is well out of town

     She’s never heard me curse before.  I was only trying to get my point across, but it seems that she’s simply been overwhelmed.   Then my last statement hit me.  I had threatened her. 

      Maybe she had a right to be afraid of me.  Maybe I had changed more than I knew.  If this was the case, then maybe she was right to feel the need to leave me.

She pulls away, my arms clamped tightly around her waist

Gently pushes me back and she looks at me straight

Turns around so she’s now got her back to my face

Takes one step forward, looks back, and then walks away

      How Kakarott could have gripped her so tightly yet with so much control just showed me again how much he still loves her.  If it had been my arms around the harpy, I would have crushed her without a second thought.  It was a close call for the ningen regardless.

     I watched as that harpy just left the third class standing in the woods all by himself.  She just got in her car and hovered off.  It wasn’t until the vehicle was a spec to my sayian eyes before he really started to unravel.  I mean that literally.  He fell to his knees with a dazed look in his eyes and his ki started to rise.  Not the sudden shift I was use to seeing in his transformations.  He didn’t even transform, just started building ki around himself.  It wasn’t until I saw blood gushing out his nose and running out of his ears that I understood he wasn’t going to transform into a state that could contain that much energy.

      As I had built ki around myself to try and blow Majin Buu up, he was building it around himself for an implosion.

      “Kakarott!  NO!”

I know in the past I’ve found it hard to say

Tellin’ you things, but not tellin’ straight

But the more I pull on your hand and say

The more you pull away

     He didn’t see me, couldn’t feel my slaps and punches to his face to try and snap him out of his self-destruction.  I couldn’t get anything inside the mental barrier he had thrown up.  I was hitting a breaking point myself, having already turned super sayian two without even thinking about it.  What would I do when he was gone this time?  The last time had been a very close thing for me.  Only the fact that my ‘other’ son had stuck around for a few days had left me with any sanity at all. 

     This wasn’t going to happen.

     I couldn’t let it happen.

     I ran a hand through my hair in rare nervous gesture.  The blood smearing my glove got my attention: blood, scent, instinct.

     I quickly tug a glove off my hand.  If this didn’t work, then nothing would.  Slashing my own wrist with one of my inhuman fingernails, I held my bleeding wrist up to the other sayian’s nose.  The crimson ran with his own, down the short distance into his open mouth.

      “Breath Kakarott,” I willed, no commanded the other male.

      Kakarott’s ki settled.  Didn’t rise, didn’t lower; just settled.  Then I heard a sob, and knew, that for now, the danger had past.  Our blood smeared across his face and neck as I wrapped my arms around him and tugged his head to my chest.  Hn, I was almost disgusted with myself.  First I am hugging my son.  Now I am hugging the third class. 

      I would work on a much better strategy when we were literally, out of the woods.

Dry your eyes mate

I know you want to make her see how much this pain hurts

But you’ve got to walk away now.

     “Come with me Kakarott,” I whispered to the sobbing male in my arms. 

     Somewhere in the back of my head, decades disappeared, as I heard a much younger version of my voice say, ‘Join me.’  The meaning was no longer the same, but the offer still stood.
