(I obviously do not own DBZ or any of the DBZ characters- never have, never will. However, Saera and Planet Kerinan are my creation.)
Saiyan Princess of Kerinan
Vegeta felt a stranger's ki flying toward them. It felt saiyan, yet there was something else there as well. He couldn't quite put his finger on it, but it was somehow familiar to him. "Hey," he said to Kakarot, "You feel that?"
Goku looked up, "What?"
"A faint ki coming this way."
"Oh, yeah. Do you recognize it?"
"No, but it is saiyan," Vegeta looked up.
"Hmm, I thought we were the only ones left."
"I did too, but maybe we were wrong."
"I wonder what whoever it is is doing here," Goku said thoughtfully.
"I don't know, but they're getting closer." Vegeta was on the alert now.
Saera was getting closer to the saiyans. There seemed to be five of them, but three seemed to be half-breeds. She would know who it was in a matter of minutes now.
I'm sure my dad's there. He's got to be, Saera thought as she began to fly over a forest. Saera started to pick up speed and spotted a clearing- the saiyans were down there. She flew down, and landed at the edge.
Vegeta turned around to see a young girl land nearby. She looked somehow familiar, but he knew he didn't know her. She was definitely saiyan, she had a tail as all saiyans did, but there was something else there too. He narrowed his eyes, "Who are you?"
The girl smiled, "I'm Saera."
"Well Saera, what are you doing here?"
"I- I was looking for my dad," she looked down. "I was looking for you," she added in a whisper.
Vegeta stared at her wide-eyed, "What?"
"I didn't know you had a daughter," Goku said to him.
Vegeta ignored Kakarot. "But- no, there must be some mistake."
Saera smiled, "No, no mistake. You're definitely my dad." She pulled out a holo-pic, "Look at this. Unless you had a look alike named Vegeta, you're him."
Vegeta took the picture and looked at it. The man in the picture appeared to be him, but he didn't quite remember. "Who did you say this man was?"
"My dad, Vegeta. Your name is Vegeta, am I correct?"
"Yes. But I don't remember having a daughter before I came to Earth."
"Well, you'd left right before my mom found out she was pregnant." Saera looked away, "Don't you remember her? Miarea, she was my mom, and your mate. She died a few days after I was born."
Vegeta vaguely recognized the name. Miarea? The name sounds familiar, but I can't quite grasp who it was. "What planet was she from?"
"Kerinan. You were there a few months before you left back to Vegeta-sei."
Vegeta looked at the holo-pic again, "That's where this picture was taken? Is the woman your mother?"
"Yes... and yes."
"You look just like her, but-"
Saera interrupted, "But you still don't remember."
Great, just absolutely perfect, Saera thought sarcasticaly. He doesn't remember my mom or Kerinan. "How could you possibly forget?" she cried out angrily.
Vegeta looked surprised at her sudden outburst, "I- listen, I'm sure I wouldn't have forgotten if there wasn't a reason." With that, he remembered something.
"What?" Saera noticed the look on his face, "What happened?"
"There was an accident on my return to Vegeta-sei," he quietly said, "I lost all memory from then to the year before."
"So, you think that's why you don't remember?"
"Yes. That must be it."
Goku sighed loudly to get everyone's attention. "So, where're you staying then?"
Saera looked at him, "I don't know. I was hoping I could stay with my dad. By the way, who are you?"
"He's Kakarot," Vegeta interrupted.
"No, I'm Goku!"
"Your saiyan name is Kakarot. Goku is your Earth name."
Saera chuckled at the two saiyans, "So, can I stay with you?"
"I don't know. I'm not sure if my mate would mind or not." Vegeta growled at the thought.
"Oh. You have a family here?"
"Yes, a mate and a son."
As if on cue, Trunks came running into the clearing with Goten following in behind. Gohan came out of his tent where he was doing his homework.
"Hey. Who's that?" Trunks asked noticing Saera.
"That's your sister, Saera." Goku said merrily.
Trunks looked at Goku like he was a baka, "I don't have a sister."
"Actually, Kakarot's right, Trunks. She's your sister," Vegeta said.
"What? Since when have I had a sister?"
"She's your half-sister."
"Oh. Does mom know about this?"
"No," Vegeta said annoyed, "She'll know when we go home."
"But we're camping right now. Mom said we have to for the whole weekend."
"Well, we can leave early. I'm sure she'll understand."
"Fine," Trunks grumbled. "Wait, but she's out of town for the weekend."
"Well, she'll know when she gets home."
Saera sat down on a log, "So, would you mind introducing me to the others?"
Vegeta looked at Saera, "Oh, your brother's name is Trunks. The other two boys are Kakarot's kids."
Gohan walked up to Saera, "Hi, I'm Gohan.
"And I'm Goten!" Goten chimed in.
"Hmm... cool. So, when are we going home?"
"Um... what about now?" Vegeta said. "I didn't really want to go on this trip anyways."
"But-" Goku started.
"You can stay. Trunks, we're leaving."
"Trunks," Vegeta ordered, "I said we're leaving."
"You don't have to go on my behalf." Saera said, "I'll just stay in my ship for the time being. I can probably even bring it here."
Vegeta growled, "I'm just not going to get out of this am I?"
"Apparently not. I'll be right back." Saera took off to get her ship.
Thanks for reading and I would still like some feedback, so please review.
