Son Goku tugged at the neck of his sweatshirt as he sat down in the window seat of the plane. He had to slouch down to see out of the window, but it was better than nothing.
He thought back on his visit with his old friend, Bulma Briefs, who had moved away when they were little but had kept in touch. It was great to see her again, but he wasn't quite sure he liked her new boyfriend, Vegeta. He kind of seemed like a dick, but Bulma gave as much shit back as he gave her, so Goku was certain they could figure something out.
Goku's musing was interrupted by someone sitting down next to him, a pretty girl around his age. She smiled nervously at him, and he grinned.
"Hey there, I'm Goku!" he introduced, awkwardly moving his right arm to offer a handshake.
"I'm Chi Chi," the girl said. She shook his hand as awkwardly as he had offered it. She looked at his shirt, one he had gotten from one of the gift shops that Bulma had showed him. "Getting done with your vacation?"
"Yep! Came up to visit an old friend! But now I'm heading back home, because my grandfather said he wanted me to be back before the schools start and my shifts pick up."
"Really? That's funny, because I'm heading down there to get settled in before I go to one of the colleges!" Chi Chi said. She pulled out her phone and showed a picture of her future college to Goku, who squinted at it. His face lit up when he recognized it.
"Hey, that's the one that's right down the road from where I work! What a coincidence!" he exclaimed. He realized all of a sudden that he had to keep his voice down, so he tried to lower it. "What are you going to college for?"
"Teaching. I've always wanted to teach little kids, before they start to act out all the time," Chi Chi answered. She flipped through a few of the photos on her phone, and Goku saw her standing with a large man in her graduation gown. She stopped on that photo. "This is my dad at my graduation. My friend got this photo right before he started crying."
"Reminds me of when my grandpa heard that I've graduated," Goku mused. "I don't think he thought I could do it. But I barely got through, so I guess he had reason to doubt me."
"And no college wanted to get you on a football team?" Chi Chi asked as she looked Goku up and down. "Because you're certainly tall enough."
"Nah, football wasn't anything I really wanted to do. I mostly do work muscles, not bulking up for sports." Goku grinned and tried to flex, but ended up hitting the back of his hand on the window. He shook his hand out quickly as Chi Chi laughed.
They kept going back and forth, not even realizing that the plane had been traveling until they touched down at the airport. Goku got her carry-on down from the rack, and she returned the favor by moving so he could get into the aisle. Once they got off of the plane, Chi Chi leaned up and kissed him on the cheek, taking him by surprise and making him turn bright red.
"See you later?" she asked. Goku couldn't make words, so he just nodded. "Great. See you Saturday, outside of your work." With that, Chi Chi vanished into the crowd, leaving Goku flustered and embarrassed.
