Warnings-There might be some slight citrus in this story; I am not sure. There is however going to be some cursing in English and in Japanese.
This is the fourth installment of the fic Strange Comfort. I do not understand how this fic got continued like this, but this is the last part. I am home sick writing this because, while I was on vacation, I ate something and now I am throwing up. Saa, hope you people understand the effort I am putting to get this story done. Well, on with the fic.
It was Thursday night and Bulma was getting ready to go out with Kunzite, and she was very excited. Nothing could deter her happiness now; except for some bad attitude from Vegita. And right now that was the only thing from keeping her truly happy, Vegita's bad attitude. Why that was affecting her she did not know, but it was and she did not like it. His royal oji pain in the ass was storming around the house complaining saying how *Bulma was giving more attention to going out with faggots than to feeding him, and did she know that he cold kill her instantly? *
She knew they were worthless threats, but she did not understand why she was so concerned with the fact that he was disappointed with her. She could not understand that at all and that was making her upset.
*I am not going to let that konoyaro get me upset anymore. This is a very special night for me and nothing that bastard can say or do is going to make me upset. But if he keeps complaining I am going to make sure I give him some embarrassment before I go. *
As Bulma was putting the finishing touches on her hair, Vegita was thinking of ways to get his mind off of her. Why she was on his mind was another thing that was bothering him and he was pissed about it. Another thing he was pissed about was the fact that he was actually concerned that she was going out with some guy this evening. He knew that he should not care but he could not help it and he was getting very angry because of it.
Vegita had come back in hope that he could talk to Bulma and maybe find out if she felt the same way about him as he did about her. When he had returned he found out that she had a new person she was gushing over and that person was not he. Ever since that night on Saturday when he had allowed his hard mask to slip Bulma had been blatantly trying to get him to admit that he had said her name.
He was not going to let her get him to admit it unless she all of a sudden reached past his power level and tried to kill him, even then he would not admit anything.
Vegita was about to go and start something else with Bulma about her choice of dating guys, but right then she came down the steps; and all his thoughts vanished into thin air. She looked absolutely gorgeous and his groin was starting to feel that effect again. Good thing for him he had started wearing baggy jeans as part of the new fad that was going around or Bulma definitely would have noticed the large bulge in his pants.
The noticeable piece of her thigh that was showing did not help the fact either, and he was beginning to wish he had stayed in the forest.
As Bulma was walking down the stairs, she started thinking that maybe this was a big mistake that she should not be going out with Kunzite. No, she was going to shake these doubtful thoughts from her head. Mr. Perfect had stepped into her life and she was not going to let him leave without a fight. Not even Vegita was going to stop her. While walking downstairs, Bulma noticed that Vegita was staring at her with that blank look in his eyes again. The baka is hiding something from me she thought and I want to know what it is.
"Vegita are you okay"
"Of course I am woman, and if I was not it would be none of your business."
"You seem sort of distracted Vegita, is there something wrong with my face?"
Vegita could not answer her. She probably thought she looked horrible from my reaction he thought. She probably does not know that she is one of the most bishoojo things that have ever graced this planet with her birth. How could he ever face himself and live his life if he did not tell her what he thought of her? Just as he was about to open his mouth the doorbell rang.
Both Vegita and Bulma wondered who it was. Bulma thought she was going to meet Kunzite at the restaurant, not him come to her house. Then she remembered that they had not even said what restaurant they were going to be meeting at and so if this was he, Bulma was very happy. Vegita on the other hand was thinking of different ways he could distract Bulma so he could snap this other guy's neck.
No, he would not think that way. Vegita despite other feelings and his cold front really wanted Bulma to be happy, even if it was not with him, though he would not tell her that. No, he would let her think that he hated her and that he could not stand the sight of her. Yes, that would work perfectly. Or at least it would work until he felt he could swallow his pride enough to actually tell her how he felt.
As Vegita was thinking Bulma was slowly walking past him, going to the door. Vegita seemed deep in thought and Bulma did not want to disturb him. Whatever he was thinking about because Vegita was not making any smart comments about her dress or whom she was going out with. Not that she would have listened, but she would have cared and that scared her a lot. Why should she care what Vegita thought of her?
Thinking about Vegita was not going to answer the door so she could meet her future destiny with oji charming, so Bulma moved past Vegita, peeked out the peephole, and opened the door. The figure that stood beyond that door looked as regal as any oji and Bulma almost fainted from shock. She had always been the best at getting and flirting with men, but the sight of Kunzite seemed to make Bulma weak, and that shocked her to no end.
"Well, goodbye Vegita, I will see you later." Bulma called out. As Bulma looked back at Vegita she could of sworn she saw a hint of jealousy behind those two dark pools of his eyes, but she was not certain. The thought of Vegita jealous was comforting to Bulma for reasons beyond her explaining and at this moment she did not care to explain.
"Was that your brother in there?" Kunzite asked Bulma in a very tersely voice. At the sound of his voice Bulma turned around to ask him if he was okay. But she stopped and thought that this was the normal reaction of any guy once he sees that there is some strange man living in there dates house. Or at least she hoped this was a normal reaction.
"No that is my friend, Vegita. You do not have to worry Kunzite, there is nothing going on between Vegita and me." Bulma almost laughed at the idea of her and Vegita being friends, but then she stopped and actually thought about why she would laugh at an idea like that. Maybe she and Vegita could be friends; it was a possibility.
Saa, right now she was going to stop thinking about Vegita. Why was he always on her mind? Even when she out on a date with a guy that she could she herself marrying she was thinking about that kusottare and she had to stop.
"Bulma-chan are you okay?" Kunzite's worried words snapped Bulma out of her deep stupor of thinking and made her aware of the fact that Kunzite was holding open the limousine door for her.
"Hai, I am alright Kunzite-kun. Thank you for holding the door open for me."
"I should be thanking you for spending your time to let someone like me take out a kawii person such as you." Bulma got into the limo and watched as Capsule Corps got smaller as the drove away.
As they were eating there food at the restaurant, Kunzite and Bulma feel into conversations. They talked about past romances, why these romances had broken up, how far they had actually come in a relationship with people, and whether or not they had had sex already. Bulma while blushing had admitted no; Kunzite had said yes that he had and was that okay with Bulma. She had said yes it was that she had had plenty of boyfriends that had not been virgins. Kunzite had responded by saying:
"You know Bulma-chan that you being a virgin makes you all the more sexually appealing and innocent and naïve to men?" Bulma had blushed at that comment. If being a virgin made her so desirable, than how come she could not find a decent guy to date?
As the clock wore on, Bulma and Kunzite began to realize that they were the only couple sitting down and not dancing.
"Would you care to dance Bulma-chan?'
"Of course I would Kunzite-kun." As they were dancing many men came and cut in on Bulma and Kunzite's dancing. Some of the men were a little too touchy feelly for Bulma and she began looking for Kunzite. She realized then that she had been separated from him and could not see him above the crowd. As she excused herself from the man she was dancing with she went to go look for Kunzite.
She finally found him sitting at their table with a very angry look on his face.
"Are you okay Kunzite-kun?"
"Ah, it seems the pretty little flower has returned. I swore I thought you had forgotten all about me." Bulma did not like the tone of Kunzite's voice and she was upset by it. What right did he have to be upset at her? She had been mad at those men for interrupting her dancing with Kunzite. But Kunzite probably did have a right for getting mad. And so for the second time that night Bulma found herself excusing Kunzite's anger.
"I really am sorry Kunzite-kun. I did not mean to get separated from you."
"Bulma-chan I am sorry for getting mad at you, it is just that the sight of those lecherous men with their hands around you made me upset. Shall we go now?"
Bulma thought that there should have been more said about the subject, but before she cold speak she was being taken out of the restaurant with Kunzite pulling her arm.
(It has been six months since Bulma and Kunzite have meet. They have progressed very well along in their relationship. Nothing has been the problem, but the fact that it seems to everyone that Bulma is not the outgoing, young woman she used to be. She has becomes very submissive to Kunzite, but it seems this is only noticeable to everyone but Bulma.)
"Ossu, Goku is Cheech here?"
"Yeah she is Bulma, do you want me to get her for you?"
"Yes that would be nice."
"Ohayoo Bulma. Goku told me you wanted to talk to me."
"Yes, I do. Kunzite wants to double date again and since I am sick of double dating with his stuck-up conceited friends, I asked him could I invite you two on a date with us. He said it would e fine so I would like to know if you would come."
"Yes, sure we will come, anything for you Bulma. Hey, Bulma would you like to go to the mall with me to pick out a new dress. I need something new to wear and I think you and me are over due for a girls date out. Do you think you can come?"
"Oh yeah, sure I can come Cheech-chan, I just have to call Kunzite and ask him is it okay. I will call you back in 5 minutes with the answer. Ja'ne till then."
Chi-chi hung up the phone and started to cry. Goku came over and asked her what was wrong.
"You wanna know what's wrong? What is wrong is that my best friend is totally the slave to some pompous jerk whose face is not even fit to be used to wipe the kuso out of jail mate's butts. He has control over what she wears, does and thinks. He is always monitoring whom she is with and what she does. She used to be so lively and know it is like the only thing she thinks about is pleasing Kunzite. It is so sickening."
"Hai, I understand how you feel Cheech-chan. I wish I could just go and kill that guy. With all my power I could just go and do it now, it is just that I have too much love for Bulma and her wishes that I do not kill him, and that is driving me crazy."
"You know what she is doing now? She is calling him asking him if she can go to the mall. The really, really sad part is that she does not want to admit to herself that what he is doing is wrong. I bet you she would marry that son-of-a-bitch if he asked her to. I am so glad that you are not like him Goku. I cannot wait until we are married. You know Bulma said I was lucky to be dating someone like you. I believe she was right. Now I wish she had someone she was lucky to be dating."
As they were kissing and about to have a little fun playing with no clothes on, the phone rang and Chi-chi went to go an pock it up. On the other side of the phone she heard Bulma's sorrow filled voice as she explained how she forgot she had an appointment to keep and that she had forgotten. Chi-chi knew she was lying and played along just to save Bulma the embarrassment. As they said their goodbyes Chi-chi kept her teeth clenched so as to avoid screaming at Bulma. When they hung up Chi-chi threw the phone at the wall and slumped down on the ground.
"That fucking onero told her not to go and she got on the phone and lied to me saying how she had forgotten she had a client to interview. She sounded so eager to go with me when I first asked her and now it she has to lie to me so she does not have to tell me that that bastard told her she could not come. Kami, I wish I could kill him."
"I do to Cheech, I do too." Was all Goku could said.
As Bulma hung up the phone from Chi-chi, she dropped on her bed and sighed. Why had Kunzite decided not to let her go this time? Had she done something wrong this time? Well she hope she could make it up to him, whatever it was. He always looked out for her best interest, and if he said she could not go anywhere it had to be for a good reason. Why she had to ask him where she could go was beyond her reasoning, but she would not ask any questions to the things he told her to do. Kunzite was a good man and she would do anything he told her to, to keep him.
She had better get ready, or Kunzite would be mad when he came to pick her up. He did not like to be late and she did not want him angry with her. She wanted him to be happy so she could always invite Chi-chi and Goku with them to double date.
Bulma spent four hours getting herself perfectly dressed for Kunzite. She even got bold and put on a little bit of a dark burgundy lipstick. Her dress was burgundy, low cut, and high slitted and fit to kill. She hoped Kunzite would not mind if she dressed a little revealing tonight.
It felt good to her that she was wearing one of her own dresses tonight. Kunzite always ordered her going out dresses now, saying that he did not want anyone looking at her in an improper way. She knew Kunzite would not say anything about her dress because they would be in front of company. She was going to Cheech and Goku's house early, so she would definitely not be able to change. She was going to dress her way tonight even if she had to do so slyly. With those words thought, Bulma walked out of the house to her car to drive to their house.
When Bulma got to Cheech's house she called Kunzite to tell him to come and pick her up there. He had agreed reluctantly that he would and warned her not to change her plans so suddenly anymore, and then he had hung up.
Chi-chi and Goku had decided that tonight they were not going to mention the negative affect Kunzite was having on Bulma. They were however going to watch out to see how he treated her so that later on they could ask her questions. But this was going to be later much later.
When Kunzite came and picked them up he looked at what Bulma had on and his face seemed to instantly be clouded with anger. How dare she come out of their house looking like some tramp! I was right not to let her wear these kinds of clothes. I bet they were in that house having some weird kind of threesome. I refuse to go out to dinner right now with her. This is it; the last straw. We are going home right now.
"Bulma we are going home now. The dinner is off and I want to talk to you. Goodbye Chi-chi and Goku have nice night. I am going outside to wait for you in the car Bulma. Hayuku. And get outside." That was all Kunzite said as he stomped out of the house and went to his limo.
"Are you going to be okay Bulma?"
"Hai, I am. I want you guys to call me in 10 minutes. If I am not home I want you guys to come searching for me. But I am pretty sure nothing is going to happen. Just as a precaution though, do as I say. I will see you guys later. Sarabada." When Bulma walked out the door and they saw her get in the car, Chi-chi murmured to Goku in between her tears:
"What the hell has he done to her?"
As they were driving away Kunzite began to scream at Bulma. He hurled insult after insult at her, and he did not stop. And yet while they were driving Bulma said nothing. She just stared out the window. She was doing this until she saw that the car was not headed in the direction of her house. Then she turned around.
"Where are we going Kunzite?"
"I am going to take you to your final resting place Bulma. We can be together and you will always listen to me." Bulma's face turned pale as she thought of what he was saying to her. She started to scream at the driver and tell him to stop. When she finally stopped screaming realizing it was futile she heard Kunzite laughing.
"What are you laughing about?" she screamed.
"I am laughing at you. Don't you understand that he is a robot? Nothing that happens to you concerns him. Oh, Bulma you are so pretty when you are upset. So damn kawii. You know we never did more than kiss. I do not think that you want to die a virgin do you?" after saying this, Kunzite took out a .45 handgun. He pointed it at Bulma and to her to undress.
She began to cry and tell him to stop. But he clicked the cock and told her to stop sniveling and do it. She stopped crying and undressed, but she left her underwear and bra on. She knew that rescue was coming soon. They had been driving around for 20 minutes and she knew that Vegita and Goku knew her ki. It was only a matter of seconds before the found her. She just had to stall Kunzite till then.
Kunzite was about to take of his pants when a hole burst through the top of the limo. The hand quickly grabbed Kunzite and blasted him into nothing. The other hand reached out and pulled Bulma out of the car before blasting it into oblivion.
Expecting to see Goku, Bulma was surprised to find herself in Vegita's arm. For some reason she felt safe there and she snuggled up close to him as he flew her home for 2 reasons: (1) She was cold because she only had her undergarments on and (2) She liked the way his body felt near hers.
Vegita was also enjoying Bulma's warmth and to disguise his feelings told Bulma all the way home how muck of a baka she was for continuing to go out with that guy. Expecting Bulma to disagree he asked her what did she have to say for herself and Bulma said:
"Bulma no baka." Right before she broke down and cried. As Vegita flew her into her room and laid her on the bed he realized he could not let go of her. He could not leave her alone to face her misery as he had done the last time. No this time he would stay and make sure she was okay.
As Bulma's tears subsided she realized that she was still holding on to Vegita and liking it. And so she started to talk to him; hoping that he would stay and listen and hoping he would understand.
"All my life Vegita I have been told that I was beautiful, and yet I have never found true love. When I met Kunzite I thought that had all changed. That I had actually found some one who loved me, so when he started to control me I just followed along. I did not want to lose him, he seemed like such the right guy for me; and then I realized if he was so right for me than how come I was not happy? You know I was going to break up with him tonight. I know that Chi-chi called and told you what I said. I knew he was going to pull a stunt like this. I know she is going to be pissed that I knew that something like this would happen, but I was sorta of anticipating it. I almost was happy when I thought he was going to shot me. I thought now I will not have to deal with being lonely. But then you know what Vegita, thought about you and I screamed for my life. You probably think I am crazy, but I think I actually like you Vegita."
Both Bulma and Vegita were shocked at this thought. Bulma was shocked that she had actually admitted this stuff to Vegita; and Vegita was shocked to find out that she felt the same way he did.
"I feel the same way about you woman. I know that I have not always been the nicest person to u, but that was just a cover up of how I felt. You want to know why I stopped wearing my uniform? It was because you had such an effect on me that I wanted you very badly. I wanted to make love to you like nothing you had ever felt before. I do not know whether you still want me after me telling you something like this, but this was not easy for me to say and I do not want you to tell anyone else about his."
"Vegita yes I still want you. I will not tell anyone else about his conversation." Bulma knew that it had taken Vegita a lot of Courage to say what he had said, and she knew that he would probably never express his feelings as openly to her again. She was going to use this to her full advantage. Bulma realized that she wanted Vegita to be her first lover and that she would not regret it if they feel in love.
"Vegita, I want you to be my first lover. I hope you really love ma and you want this as much as I do."
"Woman you have no idea, how long I have been waiting to her those words." Saying that Vegita began to show Bulma how much he really loved her.
Later on that night while Vegita was resting Bulma, was thinking of how stupid she had been not to realize that Vegita had loved her. All those times she had been blind to the signals. Well now she was not blind anymore and she was relishing in the dark about how good it felt to finally find the love of her life.
Vegita although he appeared sleep was thinking about that time when he had come from the woods and found Bulma with that lovesick look in her eyes. He had been scared all right, scared that he had lost her to anther and that he was to late. Hai, he had been more terrified than when he had saved her from Yamacho. Now he had nothing to fear, they were bonded for life and nothing could come between them.
Well, minna, I hope you all like the end to this fic. I know some people were expecting a different end, but always expect the unexpected from me. Hope you all enjoy and please review. Saa, Kudos minna. _
