Author's Notes- Hey guys! So, this is the last chapter in this story, but don't worry, because there's a sequel coming. This chapter is kind of just tying up loose ends and concluding the story.

I don't own any of the characters or anything, except for my OC's.

Cut: Super Saiyan

Chapter 14- Epilogue

I slowly rose from my hands and knees back to my feet. Lapis… he had sacrificed his life to save Earth, and all of us. But I wished there could have been another way. Soon enough the others came over to where I was.

"He… he saved us." Trunks said.

"Though we started out as enemies, I will remember him as an ally." Nomu declared.

For the next few moments, all was silent. I took that moment to silently further pay my respects to the person I had come to respect. When I died, he would be another person I would see in the afterlife. I was suddenly jostled from my thoughts and violently shoved to the ground. I looked up to see Lazuli, her face livid.

"You idiot! Why did you teach him that stupid move?!" She shouted. When I didn't answer her, she grabbed the front of my armor roughly and pulled me up. "Well? Answer me!"

"I didn't teach him the move. He started practicing on his own-"

"Shut up!"

"But you told me-"

"I said shut up! You should have told him not to do it!"

"But he tried to talk Lapis out of it, I heard him." Trunks spoke up. "Please, calm down-

"Don't tell me to calm down! This is all your fault! If you would have just finished Cell off while you had the chance, my brother would still be alive!" She shouted at Trunks.

"I'm sorry-" Trunks started.

"No you're not! You think I forgot that you tried to kill him? He's the only family I had and now he's dead!"

I didn't really know what to do to calm her down. I saw her bury her face in her hands and sob for a few seconds, before suddenly flying away. I turned to Trunks. "I have to agree with her on one thing. You were stronger than Cell. How did you let that happen?"

"I wasn't expecting him to do something like that. It caught me off guard. I failed, and I'm sorry." Trunks explained.

"I guess it happens to the best of us. Besides, we'd all be even worse off if you hadn't shown up when you did. And this isn't a time for us to be fighting. What's done is done. So thanks for at least saving the rest of the world from him." I told Trunks.

"Yeah." Trunks said. "Well, I guess I'd better get back home and tell Mom what happened. If you need anything, you know where to find me."

"See you later, Trunks." I told him as he flew away. I looked to Nomu. "I think I'll stay in the ship for a while if it's okay with you."

"Of course." Nomu replied simply.

And with that, the two of us took off. Once we got back to the ship, we each used the healing chamber. Usually the healing chamber doubled as a shower, but I took a separate one anyway while Nomu made a few fixes to my suit. Once I got done showering, I threw on a training onesie and came back out. It was two in the morning, but I couldn't sleep. I guess Nomu couldn't either, as he was out there too.

"It was not your fault." He said to me.

"I know. But I miss him already. I loved playing video games with him, sparring with him, and even having our little silly arguments. I didn't love him in the same way I do his sister, but I really liked having him around, and I felt like he deserved a second chance." I explained.

"Yes, and you made sure he got one. It is true that he is gone, but because of you he was able to leave this world knowing that in the end, he saved it. That is much better than a death at Trunks' hands would have been. We all will die someday, the question is whether or not we leave the world better than we found it. I didn't think it was possible, but Lapis did. The entire planet would be gone if not for him. I'm sure he is very grateful to you for that." Nomu said.

"Yea, he told me before he died. I guess it is a good thing." I agreed, still sad.

A knock at our spaceship door stole our attention. Not too many people knew where our ship was, nor would too many people come knocking. Nomu and I exchanged glances, and then I got up to answer the door. I opened it to find Lazuli there. She still looked angry, but I guess she wanted to talk at least.

"I don't have anywhere to live." She said bluntly.

"Um… you don't?" I asked, confused.

"That freak destroyed our house, remember?" She said, seemingly starting to get angry.

"Oh yea. I guess you want to stay here?" I asked hesitantly.

"Well, you led that monster to our house. What do you think? Now either let me in, or I'll blow up this ship and you'll be homeless too." I put my head down in defeat.

"Come in." I said. She wasted no time coming in and sitting down on one of the chairs. She sighed.

"Look, I'm sorry about yelling at you earlier, okay? I know it wasn't your fault." She told me.

"It's fine. Would you believe me if I told you I know what it's like losing a brother?"

She stayed in the ship with us for the next week or so. While in there, we used the training systems on the ship, and sometimes sparred outside. Nomu and I trained together too, but it was rare that the three of us all trained together. I could adjust my power level to match Nomu's, but Lazuli seemed to have a hard time doing that. Or maybe she just didn't want to, as she hadn't been completely accepting of him.

One day we were going to see Bulma. As we flew to Capsule Corporation, we talked about the reason we were going there.

"Yea, it seems like even only using eighty percent of my power, I can beat you." I said.

"How do you keep getting so much stronger than me?" Lazuli asked.

"It's because I'm a Saiyan. It's in my blood." I responded.

"But you've been a Saiyan all this time. It's just recently that your power's been increasing like this." She countered.

"Yea, I think it had something to do with the amount of food I was eating. Saiyans aren't supposed to eat the same portions as a human, which is what I had been doing. They need a lot more food per meal. Recently I started eating a lot more in my meals." I explained.

"So being a pig made you strong?" She snorted.

"It's more like, not 'being a pig' kept me weak. Like I said, it's in my blood. Which is why I'm hoping that giving you some could help you get stronger too."

"But I'd have to eat like you?"

"That's the thing, I don't think so. Right now you don't have to eat at all, so you'd probably get stronger without even needing to worry about that."

Soon enough we reached Capsule Corporation. Bulma greeted us and took us inside. Shortly after, we told her about what we were hoping she could do. Apparently Trunks was at the store.

"Hmm…. I would need a sample of both of your blood so I can see how to synthesize them, but yea, I think we should be able to do it. I'd just need a little time to work on it, but I can take your blood and get started right away." Bulma told us. She noticed the slight apprehension on my face. "What's wrong, Cut?"

"Nothing. It's just, needles are a little… I don't want to say scary, but… um..." I trailed off. Yea this was worth the pain, but it would indeed be painful.

"Oh, you're just like Goku used to be. He hated needles too." Bulma said.

"Yea, I kind of see why." I muttered.

"But there's nothing to worry about. Come on, it'll be over before you know it." Bulma assured me.

So I went and did what I had to. It hurt, but it needed to be done. Not even an hour later, Bulma let us know that it was done. We had decided to just wait there since we weren't sure how she'd get in touch with us otherwise. She handed Lazuli the synthesized blood, and Lazuli took it instantly.

"That's it. Now you should be able to get strong just like a Saiyan can." Bulma told her.

"Wait, what?" Trunks had just burst through the door. "Mom, what did you do?"

"I gave Lazuli here some of Cut's Saiyan blood, of course doctored by me to be compatible with hers, so she can get strong like him." She explained.

"But… it wasn't long ago that she was..." Trunks trailed off.

"That was in the past, Trunks. You said you thought she was more likely to be redeemable than her brother and he died to save the world. I think it's safe. Besides, they promised they'd leave the planet soon if I did this for them." She told her son.

It was true. Bulma never actually asked us to, but I volunteered to leave the planet and take Lazuli (and Nomu) with me if she did this for us. I knew she would be worried about giving more power to someone who had put the planet under siege not long ago.

"Now Cut, your blood is pretty closely compatible with a human's, but there's no way it would work for Namekians. So unfortunately your friend Nomu is just going to need to get stronger the old fashioned way." Bulma explained to me.

"I understand. Well, thank you for doing this for us, Bulma. We'd better get going." I told her.

"Oh wait, one more thing." Bulma said. "Here, take this."

She handed me some kind of gun with a needle on it. I looked at it, confused. "What's this for?"

"It's so if you ever need to take your blood again, you can do it easily. It also has a small synthesizer in it, just in case you guys need something like this again." She explained.

"Oh, okay. Thanks! We're off now." I said.

"Okay, see you later!" She said as she waved goodbye.

Lazuli went back to the ship, but I went somewhere else. I flew to Chi Chi's house. I knocked on the door, and she answered.

"Oh, Cut. I wasn't expecting you." She said.

"I know. I wanted to talk to you about something." I said.

"Okay, what is it?" She asked.

"Well, Nomu and I are leaving the planet soon."

"What? You are? But why?" She asked, concerned.

"I made a deal with Bulma. The thing is, I needed someone to watch over that lovely restaurant that I always eat at. I've seen and tasted your cooking, and I think you'd be the perfect fit." I told her.

"Yea, sure, I'll run it for you. Can I maybe open it to the public? We haven't used money in a long time, but it would be nice to make some every once in a while." She said.

"Sure, be my guest. But if I ever do come back, I want in on the business." I said.

"No problem. We'll miss you though." She said sadly.

"Same. Make sure you come to see us off. We're leaving in one week." I explained.

"Okay." She said.

We said our goodbyes and I flew back to the ship. Lazuli and I trained together. Though I couldn't see the results right away, we both were excited about her being able to become stronger.

One week came and went and in no time, it was the day we were to leave Earth. I ate at the restaurant one last time, this time with Chi Chi, Bulma, Trunks, Nomu, and Lazuli all with me. There was also a huge man that I may have seen once or twice but hadn't actually talked to. Chi Chi explained that he was her father and that he would be helping her with the restaurant. He seemed like a nice guy, so I had no problems with it. But he stayed at the restaurant after we left. After the meal, Chi Chi and Bulma rode to my spaceship in a hover car while the rest of us flew there.

Trunks, Bulma, and Chi Chi were gathered in front of the ship. Nomu and I were still waiting for Lazuli to come. She eventually did, with a huge bag of clothes that she loaded onto the ship.

"Oh yea, you guys can have these. They'll help you with big loads like that. Some of them have some new suits of armor for you, Cut." Bulma said, giving some capsules to Trunks, which he flew up and handed me.

"Thank you Bulma. And thanks for everything." I told her.

"No problem. And listen, you guys don't have to stay gone. You're welcome back anytime.. after about a year or so… so don't be a stranger!" Bulma called to us. We were already ascending, but the latch was still open so we could hear them.

"Good luck on your journeys!" Trunks called.

"Goodbye!" Chi Chi called.

We finally closed the latch as we headed into orbit. I felt sad, leaving Earth. I had so many memorable battles and adventures there. But a least I would be leaving with the amazing woman I met there.

"Oh no!" I exclaimed, suddenly remembering something. "I forgot to take the video games!"

"Relax." Lazuli's voice was somewhere between exasperated and amused. She dug into the bag she brought with her and pulled out the console and wires. "I got them for you."

"Oh yes, thanks!" I said excitedly.

"Well, don't I deserve a hug?" She surprised me by asking. I wasted no time giving her that. We stayed like that for a while, until Nomu's voice broke us out of the moment.

"Cut, you won't believe what I found! I never knew this was here!" He exclaimed. I went to where he was and looked in astonishment.

It was a stove. Just like the one in the restaurant.

"We could hunt animals from various planets and cook them here. It would have to be ones we've eaten from before, of course, lest I risk eating something poisonous. But still, this is wonderful!" I said excitedly.

"Speaking of planets that we are going to visit, where is our destination?" Nomu asked.

"Well, that planet that we were on before we left for Earth seems like a good place to settle. Maybe we could even travel the stars a bit or visit your home planet of Namek." I suggested.

"Indeed, the planet that you defeated Lord Slug on was kind to you. But what of me? I was working with him." He asked worriedly.

"It'll be fine. I'm sure they won't mind after they hear about how you defeated Cooler." I assured him.

"I hope you are right." He said.

Just then, another one of those strange sensations came over me. I was having another vision.

In the vision, I was just finishing up some kind of minor battle. I had thrown an unconscious person onto my ship and was about to leave when I heard a gruff but vaguely familiar voice.

"Are you the one they call Cut?" The voice asked. I turned around and got the shock of my life.

"S-Scallio?" I asked incredulously.

"Spinak?" He asked in much the same fashion.

"So this is your brother, Spinak?" An unfamiliar voice asked. I looked to see a boy, a little younger than me. He appeared to also be a Saiyan, though he seemed somehow different from all the other ones I encountered.

The vision ended there. The next thing I knew, I was back in front of the newly discovered stove. Nomu and Lazuli were both staring at me.

"Cut, you kind of zoned out a little bit there." Lazuli said.

"I just had another vision, guys." I told them.

"What was it about?" Nomu asked.

"My brother. He's alive! I'm going to see him soon!" I exclaimed.

"That is most wonderful news!" Nomu agreed. Lazuli simply smiled and came to give me another hug.

I wasn't sure where our adventure would take us next. But with a friend like Nomu and a mate like Lazuli by my side, I was sure it would be a blast.

A few months later, somewhere in the vast reaches of space, a sphere which resembled a small planet floated. It was known as the Big Gete Star. It collected anything it could find and added it to its mass. From inside the sphere, a malicious voice could be heard.

"I still can't find that blasted planet Namek. All Saiyans and Namekians must die! Especially the one called Nomu. Hm? What's that? It looks like two monkeys. Wait, it's the one who made me lose both him and his brother. Scallio, that was his name. Well, time to go exterminate those monkeys."

The sphere floated over to where it saw the two Saiyans and prepared to attack.

Author's Notes- So that's the end of the story. As you can see, there's a decent amount of foreshadowing for things that will happen in the sequel. Now, the sequel won't follow Cut, although he will show up. It'll be another OC. Scallio, the mystery Saiyan from the vision and his love interest will be the main characters. I also don't know if I'll put it in Dragon Ball Z or Dragon Ball Super, as each has exclusive characters that the story involves. I'll get working on it as soon as I finish "You Lied", which only has two more short chapters. Anyway, guys, thanks for reading all this. I hope you guys check out the sequel, and reviews are appreciated.
