These are some of the things that keep repeating over and over in the mind of the proud Saiyan Prince. It has officially been about four hours since the world has been saved by the hands of a child. Officially four hours since he went into that kamikaze assault against Perfect Cell to try to avenge the son he never wanted or knew about's death at the android's hands. He has been here ever since the others left to go to the lookout thinking about what has transpired here just a few short hours ago.
Have I really changed that much since I came here all those years ago? Do I really care about the well being of the brat I never even knew I had or wanted? Does this mean that there is really something in this icy 'so called heart' of mine? Can I really start to fight for the good of things from now on? I doubt that but I do know things will never be the same after today I can feel it. Vegeta thought to himself looking at the baron wasteland that was the final battle against Cell. He himself doesn't look any better to be honest. His battle armor spandex is ripped in the arms and in the leg area so that his thigh on one leg appears on one side and his calf appears on the other. His breastplate is creaked in the front and the side areas because of the battles earlier. His once white gloves are torn in a few areas showing portions of his hands and his white-gold tipped boots are even dirtier. Good thing they aren't torn or he would be long gone by now.
This does't make any sense at all. But if the future counterpart of my son can make me do this then can the infant version do the same? Maybe or Maybe not. All I really know is that the brat and I have bonded in a way and I never even knew until it was too late. Although they already revived Trunks with the dragonballs I still feel like I failed him. No. I refuse to believe that I Vegeta, Prince of all Saiyans, can never fail anyone unless I can help it. If that's the case then I can forget about leaving this mudball planet. I can't bring the kid with me. If I do I have to take his vile mother with him. He continued to think to himself even deeper into this thought processes.
By thinking about the blue haired woman Vegeta also thought about all about his association with the heiress.
Before he left to go off into space Bulma thought to give a little going away present to the prince before he left. While this may seem odd to others it was known to only the two that they were in a relationship of sorts soon after Vegeta helped Bulma out of her depressed state. They managed to keep it well hidden for quite some time until two months before he left into space when Bulma's parents as to what their daughter was doing behind their backs though they didn't mind at all in fact they encouraged their 'relationship' of sorts. What he nor did the bluenette didn't know of was the little life that was growing inside of Bulma's womb because of that 'going away present'. By the time that Bulma found out she was pregnant with the Saiyan's child he was already in deep space training for the android's arrival. When nine grueling months passed the secret about the unexpected motherhood came out along with what happened and who is the father to the lavender haired infant.
When Vegeta himself found out that he had a son many things were going through his mind even if he didn't show it then. These thoughts include: How did things end this way? All the other times I was with the woman this did NOT happen. I'm I ready for this? Can I be the kind of father that my father never was? And the thought that appeared most of all is: Why did she not tell me?
After what felt like an eternity thinking about his actions and other things the Saiyan decided that it's time to take his leave. By taking to the skies the prince flew ,without him even knowing, to the Capsule Corporation.
About Twenty minutes later Vegeta made it back to the patio of his old bedroom. Taking one last look into the stars in the dark of the night the Saiyan opened the window like door to his room and stepped inside.
As soon as hen got in he noticed a few things.
1. Bulma and (baby) Trunks are still awake. With the mother trying to comfort the little one.
2. The weight of the day was finally starting to catch up to him.
3. His room looks emptier than he feels.
4. His body won't let him fall asleep until he settles things with the woman.
So with very great reluctance Vegeta made his way to the nursery where the bluenette and the child is. As he made his way through the twists and turns of the dome shaped building he finally made to the room where Bulma and Trunks are at.
As he looked at the door he heard a very loud cry coming from the inside of the room which means that Trunks is awake and the baby is cranky.
With one last second to steel himself he opened tho the door to a particular sight.
Bulma, clad in a simple white over sized white T-shirt and blue running sweats, is rocking the baby boy him her arms to sleep who the baby is dressed in a light blue colored onesie. The woman in question is humming a lullaby that he has never even heard of(go figure) but the beautiful sound and the peaceful image will forever be in the recesses of his mind. While the baby has calmed down greatly his azure colored eyes, which he got from his mother, still shine with small tears in his innocent little eyes he is slowly being lulled to sleep by his mother's lullaby dispite his tries to stay awake.
After who knows how long Vegeta stood there as a spectator in this moment he become ware of his surroundings again as Bulma stopped humming and placed the now sleeping infant in his crib for the night.
"I know you're there Vegeta" Bulma said lowly so that the saiyan heard but not loud enough for the baby to wake up from his nap. She knew he has been there as soon as she heard the low creek of the door opening that the prince has been watching her while she tended to his son.
"How long did you know I was here woman" Vegeta finally said after a moments hesitation.
"Long enough to know that we probably have a few things to discuss which is why you're still here now" Came the reply knowing she hit the target right on the bat though she is still looking at the baby's sleeping form.
Vegeta thought about how he should start this when he finally asked after a minute "Why did you not you tell me about this before I went into space woman, that you were with child."
Bulma had anticipated that question so she turned to face the saiyan but faltered when she saw his messy and dirty form.
"Well woman" Vegeta snapped in a little more harsh response than normal but he was tired and impatient so its natural he is this way.
"Sorry" She said a bit sheepishly and followed with "I didn't tell you about him because I didn't even know I was even pregnant with him, and by the time I did find out you were already in space. Would have that really have changed if I told you I was pregnant?" She asked the saiyan in the room with her.
"To be honest yes it would." The immediate reply came and seeing the shocked look on Bulma's face Vegeta knew he had to elaborate on the subject "When a saiyan male gets a female embedded with child he has a responsibility to care for the female or providing for her and the act of not taking care of her will result in death because you will never know if the child will change things withe race or not. It also holds a sense of you are more than enough to take charge of your pack and provide for the new members of the pack. That has been the law and has been a part of our instincts for hundreds of years on Vegeta-sei. Failure to comply with these demands will make your body revolt against you, your power will severely crippled, and it will be like death is always coming for you." He elaborated to the female in front of him and getting an even deeper solution to as to why his training got to a REALLY bumpy started when he was in space.
"Oh... w-w-well... I'm sorry then" Bulma said a little down cast knowing that a lot of things would change if she knew this sooner. "Well why didn't you save me and Trunks when Dr. Gero shot down our plane huh?" she asked trying to save face.
What she didn't know was that he had an answer already pre-paired for that question "First off you weren't supposed to be there in the first place so it was your fault you were in that situation on your own knowing the risks and you brought an infant there with you. Secondly after I figured out future boy's identity I knew that he would save you and the infant version of himself while I tried to locate Gero on my own. Lastly your so call 'friends' could have saved you if myself and the boy weren't there." He answered completely honestly, shocking Bulma even more at knowing who is really at fault here.
Bulma fell into an abrupt silence at the confession of those events from Vegeta. While she herself held nothing against Vegeta she couldn't help but hold a little resentment for the saiyan but to bring the other factors into light is really a game changer to her to be honest. This kind of confession is a lot to take in and while she is really at fault for trying to relive the glory days at the cost of her own life to have it brought up like this is a big slap to the face to her. Is her life and her son's life really worth it just to relive the good old days for a little bit? It's a big fat NO. Vegeta also brought up an interesting point re-guarding her friends not trying to save her life and all. Just what else has she overlooked just for the thrill of the moment? A LOT apparently.
After a few more moments of silence Bulma decided to just drop that subject because of all of Vegeta's valid points
"(Sigh) What's done in the past is done and I guess there is nothing neither of us can do about it can we Vegeta" Bulma said after a few more moments of silence
"Hn." came the reply form Vegeta
After a while more of silence Vegeta decided to speak what else is on his mind at the moment
"You did it by yourself" He said to the bluenette.
"Did what?" She asked out curiosity
"Your mirai timeline self. She raised Trunks on her own because of my death" Vegeta confessed to the bluenette looking at the crib not five feet from her.
This caused the heiress to think about what he was talking about for a little bit. When she finally understood she decided to voice her opinion on the matter at hand "I doubt she had much of a choice on the matter of raising him don't you think? Besides I myself was ready to raise Trunks on my own had you died or you decided to never come back to us. I'm glad to know that neither is the case here." Bulma said but seemed hesitant on this next part "You... would help me raise Trunks... wouldn't you Vegeta" She asked of the saiyan prince.
He wasn't expecting this question at all and it caused him to think for a long moment. Is he really cut out for this parenting business? Can he set a good example for the boy? Can he do this the right way without loosing his infamous temper on the boy? Does this mean that Bulma still wants him in her life?
Am I ready for this? Veheta thought while gazing into the azure eyes of Bulma. Only one way to find out then?
After a few more minutes of silence the prince answered with:
"I suppose I should then"
He can tell that that answer is the one Bulma wanted to hear because she released a low sigh of relief at that stated she wanted his help
"Thank you Vegeta" Bulma said with relief relaying in her voice.
Since this is where the conversation finally ended Vegeta turned to leave when he heard his name being called by the bluenette. He turned and said "What now woman" REALLY feeling the weight of the day taking its toll on him.
Bulma said nothing to him and instead walked up to him, wrap her arms around is powerful neck and gave him a long passionate kiss on the lips as of to say 'Thank you for not leaving us and trusting yourself on this', and he is still pretty roughed up mind you.
He didn't know how long he was surprised by the kiss or when he started to kiss back. But at that moment he knew he made the right choice because he felt a sense of relief in his features and a feeling of belonging in the undertone of it all. Perhaps all of this was just in his mind after all and he had nothing to trouble himself with at this point. This could be the beginning of something extraordinary, he has a small feeling of it.
After what felt like an eternity of being in this situation they broke off, but with Bulma still having her arms around Vegeta's neck, and gazed into each other's eyes to see if this is for real. They already knew before they looked that this is real and not an illusion.
Bulma rested her head against the prince of all saiyan's shoulder and said softly against his neck "Thank you Vegeta for giving this a chance"
He didn't answer to that but what he did next made her heart soar:
Slowly but surly, Vegeta wrapped his arms around Bulma's waist and kept it there for a while
