I don't own any of the characters or anything.

You Lied

Chapter 1

Goku and Krillin hoisted their backpacks over their shoulders as they stood up to exit the school bus. Stepping off onto the sidewalk in front of their school, they engaged in light conversation.

"You know, Goku, not that I don't enjoy your company, but I still don't understand why your brother doesn't just drive you to school. I mean, you both go here, and he has a car." Krillin told his friend.

"Raditz is kind of mean about his car." Goku said sadly. But then he smiled. "Oh well, at least I get to ride to school with my friend!"

"Oh Goku, always looking on the bright side." Krillin sighed, admiring his friend's optimism.

"Hello Kakarot. Krillin." A boy said coming up to the two of them.

"Hey Vegeta." Goku replied. "I kind of wish you didn't always use my real name, though. It sounds kind of dumb to me, you know?"

Vegeta was the newest person in their group. He had just started going to their high school at the start of that year, which was a few months prior. Goku, Krillin, and Yamcha, who were all sophomores, had become friends with him rather quickly. Vegeta was interested in becoming a professional photographer when he grew up, and loved working with digital images. He had come from another country and had a decently interesting background. One of their other friends, Bulma, was thinking of dating him, but wasn't sure if she wanted to leave Yamcha, whom she was currently dating. Vegeta was somewhat proud, but otherwise friendly enough. But he loved to mess with Goku by calling him by his real name, Kakarot. Goku was his nickname.

As was usually the case, Yamcha would be the last of their guy friends to arrive.

The boys continued their walk into the school. They all had homeroom together, so they usually walked to class as a group. Usually their female friends slash respective girlfriends have meet up with them by now, though. It didn't take long for the boys to spot them.

"Hey, there the girls are." Krillin said, pointing to where they were.

"What's wrong with Bulma?" Goku asked.

Their three female friends were somewhat huddled together. Bulma appeared to be crying. Chi Chi, Goku's girlfriend, was rubbing a hand on Bulma's back, seemingly trying to console her. Eighteen, Krillin's girlfriend, was handing Bulma some tissues from the box which she was holding. The three girls and the three guys (four once Vegeta joined them) always hung out as a group. But today, something had obviously upset Bulma.

"Bulma, what's wrong?" Krillin asked gently. Bulma paused her sobbing briefly(no pun intended) to acknowledge the boys.

"Yamcha cheated on me!" She wailed, resuming her crying.

"What? Really?" Goku stammered.

"I- I don't think Yamcha would do that." Krillin said. Krillin was closer with Yamcha than any of the rest were. But Bulma suddenly shoved a printed out picture in his face.

"See for yourself!" She roared.

Krillin grabbed at the paper, pulling it off of his face, and studied it. Sure enough, the photo on the paper showed Yamcha kissing another girl. Eighteen handed Krillin two more printed out photos, each showing Yamcha kissing a different girl.

"What an asshole." The blonde spat.

Krillin passed the pictures around for Goku and Vegeta to see. Goku took a look at them and gave them back to Krillin. Vegeta looked at them for slightly longer before handing them back.

"I'm sorry to hear that, Bulma." Krillin said, handing the pictures back to her. He didn't know what else to say.

And it was at that moment, the worst possible moment, that said cheater chose to arrive. They all heard the hurried footsteps as Yamcha ran up to them.

"Hey guys! Sorry I'm late. I was doing a lot of homework last night. Hey- is everything okay?" He asked.

The group all turned accusing glares his way. Well, the girls and Goku did, anyway. Krillin and Vegeta just looked at him.

"Yamcha, how could you?!" Bulma raged through her tears.

"Huh? What are you talking about?" He questioned.

"You cheated on me!" The young woman seethed.

"What? No! I'd never do that-" Yamcha tried to defend.

"Shut up! We already have the pictures." Eighteen cut him off.

"Pictures?!" Yamcha exclaimed.

Bulma shoved the pictures in his face not unlike she did Goku a couple of minutes ago. Yamcha looked at them and his eyes went wide, as if he were surprised.

"I can't believe I trusted you! I wanted to go out with Vegeta, but I didn't because I thought you were worth my time. Well guess what? I was wrong. We are done, Yamcha! Don't ever call me again!" She yelled at the startled boy.

"That goes for all of us." Eighteen added. "If you bother any of us again, I'll kick your ass."

"You should be ashamed of yourself, Yamcha!" Chi Chi scolded.

"But Bulma-" Yamcha tried again.

"But nothing!" This time it was Chi Chi who cut him off. "You don't deserve Bulma!" Yamcha looked horrified.

"Krillin, Goku, do something!" He cried desperately.

"I don't know what to say, Yamcha." Krillin told him. "You shouldn't have cheated on Bulma."

"But I didn't!" The scarred boy insisted.

"Yamcha, you've crossed the line. Bulma doesn't deserve what you've done to her." Goku told him firmly. He opened his mouth to reply when Bulma cut him off.

"Just leave me alone!" Bulma shouted at him, stomping away. The others followed her. Vegeta cast one look back at the boy, and then followed the others.

Once the group got far away enough from Yamcha, Chi Chi put her hand on Bulma's shoulder.

"Don't worry, Bulma. You don't need him." She assured her friend. Then she smiled. "Did you say earlier that you wanted to go out with Vegeta?"

"Huh? I said that?!" Bulma screeched.

"Yeah." Eighteen replied.

Vegeta looked down bashfully. He actually wanted to go out with Bulma, but hadn't said anything because he didn't want to pressure her into leaving Yamcha. It seemed now he didn't have to.

"Come on, Vegeta. Why don't you spend a little time with Bulma, here?" Goku asked with a smile. "At least cheer her up after what Yamcha did to her. Who knows, maybe you two might totally hit it off."

"Well, I guess I could. She seems like a nice person." Vegeta replied.

"Really? Okay, lets hang out after school today!" Bulma quickly agreed.

Chi Chi smiled seemingly at seeing Bulma cheer up so quickly. The gang all then went to their homeroom class, with Bulma and Vegeta looking forward to the new possibilities.

Author's Notes- Okay, so that's the end of Chapter 1. There's only four or five chapters to this one, so it'll be short. By the way, I'm finishing up the long fight in my next chapter of Cut: Super Saiyan. That will be out soon, so stay tuned for that. As for this story, it will be different from what people are expecting, but it will be Bulma/Vegeta. Reviews are appreciated and stay tuned!
