Krillin sighed as he looked off into the distance, there was still no sign of Gohan. The bald former monk had planned to camp in the forest of Mount Pazu along with Bulma, Oolong and Gohan. But what was keeping Gohan? Had Chi-Chi changed her mind about allowing her son to join them?
Oolong tried to get a fire going beneath an enormous pot. He leaned in too close as the flames ignited and promptly singed his nose. Krillin and Bulma burst into laughter at the sight of his soot covered nose.
At that very moment Gohan arrived, " Hey! Sorry I'm late..."
" Mmmm! What's that delicious smell? " Gohan asked eagerly. " It smells just like Mom's kitchen in the morning!"
The pig swallowed hard and turned ashen. Oolong muttered under his breath as he became the target for Bulma and Krillen's laughter once more. He decided to direct attention to the enormous backpack Gohan carried.
" What was your mother thinking when she sent you out with that thing?" Oolong gasped as he pointed to the monstrous backpack.
" That is SOME backpack, Gohan," Bulma mused.
" Uh, Mom packed it for me," the son of Goku explained.
" That figures!" Krillin sighed.
Bulma, Krillin and Oolong held their sides as they laughed and teased a sheepish-looking Gohan about the contents of his over-sized backpack. It seemed as if the half-Saiyan child would never stop pulling out items.
" Not only does he look like he's going on safari, but he brought everything with him but the kitchen sink!" Oolong guffawed.
" Just how LONG did Chi-Chi think you were going to be out here?" Bulma questioned as she tried not to snicker.
" You could keep an expedition fed with all that food!" Krillin declared as Gohan pulled stacks of canned goods and even MORE items out of his backpack.
A probe sent from Turles's ship crashed into the Earth causing an explosion. The spider-like craft scuttled away but left flames in its'wake that rapidly spread to the forest where Bulma, Krillin, Oolong and Gohan were camping...
Krillin awoke to the sound of terrified forest creatures and the smell of smoke. Stepping out of his tent, he saw that the forest was ablaze. He quickly roused the others. At Krillin's suggestion, he and Gohan set out to blow away the inferno using power blasts.
Great trees began to fall to the ground. Gohan had to lift up a fallen tree to free a small purple dragon pinned beneath it. Soon the roaring fire was extinguished but sheer devastation was left behind by the flames. The beautiful forest was reduced to nothing but scorched tree trunks. Helpless denizens of the forest milled about unsure of what to do or where to go.
"All these poor animals have lost their home! We have to do something!" Gohan exclaimed.
"I know! Bulma, you have the Dragon Radar, let's use the Dragon Balls and wish back the forest!" Krillin shouted.
"Yeah!" Gohan agreed excitedly.
The sky darkened and the great dragon Shenron appeared and promised to grant the group of friends a single wish. Gohan had to stop the small dragon he had rescued from attacking Shenron. The small creature wouldn't have stood a chance against the great dragon.
In no time at all the forest was restored to its former beauty. With their campsite and supplies ruined, Bulma, Krillin, Oolong and Gohan decided to cancel their camping adventure.
Turles's probe sent back information and visuals to his ship. The dark-skinned Saiyan stared at the screen in disbelief. Instead of a bare lifeless sphere, the planet Earth was a thing of beauty and it was absolutely teaming with life.
'What became of you, Kakarot? Why didn't you complete your mission? ' Turles wondered.
"What are your orders, Master Turles?" the huge orange- skinned being that piloted the Saiyan's ship questioned.
"It seems Kakarot has failed to carry out his duty to purge this world. This planet will be perfect to plant the seed of the Tree of Might. We'll harvest the fruit and the tree will fulfill Kakarot's mission. It's the least we can do since he left the planet for our use," Turles declared.
The laughter of the two pirates echoed through the ship.
Gohan sighed with disappointment. Not only had he lost the competition with his father over who could their breath the longest in their outdoor tub. But he'd had to endure a thorough scolding from his mother because the little purple dragon he rescued had followed him home. The sight of the creature had terrified Chi-Chi. His furious mother had demanded that Gohan take the beast back to the mountain.
Turles stayed behind in his ship as the Crusher Corps team walked out on the Earth to plant the tree whose voracious roots sucked out the very life-giving energy of the unfortunate worlds it was planted upon. The pirate commander examined his charts to decide which hapless planet would be the next victim of the Tree of Might.
Amond, the massive orange -skinned pirate gave a great cry as he sent a powerful blast into the Earth. The resulting explosion created a great chasm.
An evil smile crossed the face of the long dark green-haired Daiz as he tossed a seed from the Tree of Might into the chasm. Each of the team expressed their hopes that the tree would sprout and quickly bear fruit.
Gohan played with his new friend, Icarus the dragon until Chi-Chi called him in for supper.
As Yamcha bragged about his expensive car to Puar, he felt an ominous power. Suddenly the pair were knocked from the sky by the force of the explosion caused by Turles's second -in -command. The scar-faced former bandit could only groan in despair over his costly ruined plane.
Far away, Piccolo also noticed a power that brought a sense of pure evil.
The seed from the Tree Of Might sprouted almost immediately. It's monstrous roots tore through the forest uprooting trees and frightening the animals. Even a nearby city suffered devastation as the roots continued their ravage of the planet. Soon the enormous tree stood high above the ruined forest. The other trees were left as nothing but lifeless husks.
"Soon the tree will bear fruit,"Amond chuckled.
"After we eat the fruit, we'll be invincible!" Rasin and Lakasei declared.
The bulbous-headed purple Beenz brothers were delighted with the prospect of gaining power from the fruit once more. Daiz wholeheartedly agreed. Cacoa, the cyborg added his assent.
At the Son home, Goku, Bulma, Oolong, Master Roshi and Gohan listened as Yamcha bemoaned his misfortune with his expensive plane. Tien and Chiaotzu were also rapt with attention to his tale of woe. Chi-Chi just shook her head as she served tea to each of their guests.
Bulma leapt up from her seat in absolute fury " You bought that flashy car to catch the eye of some girl! DIDN'T YOU?"
"N-n-no! Of course not!" Yamcha protested.
"Did you even THINK before you bought that EXPENSIVE CONTRAPTION?" Bulma screeched.
Master Roshi was thoroughly enjoying the show. Tien and Chiatzou merely gave each other knowing looks. Bulma and Yamcha's spats were legendary.
There was a sudden tap on the window, Chi-Chi was livid when she saw the small purple dragon trying to get Gohan's attention.
"Didn't I tell you to get rid of that thing?" Chi-Chi fumed.
" Actually Chi-Chi..." Goku began.
" OOOHHH! I should have known! You two went behind my back! GET RID OF HIM NOW, GOHAN!" Chi-Chi ordered.
Gohan went out and shooed away the protesting little dragon away.
"Maybe something's wrong. He was acting kinda strange," Goku observed.
"Nonsense! He just wanted to play and distract Gohan from his studies," Chi-Chi insisted.
A voice suddenly called out to Goku.
"King Kai?" Gou said in surprise.
"Goku, Something horrible has happened to the planet Earth. A monstrous plant known as the Tree of Might has been planted on Earth. When it bears fruit it will drain all the energy from the planet and reduce it to one huge lifeless desert. I'm afraid it's already too late for the Earth," King Kai sadly informed him.
"No! I can't just give up!" Goku protested.
Goku quickly explained the situation to those seated at the table. All of the Z- fighters agreed that they would combine their powers to destroy the tree. Gohan tried to join them.
"YOU ARE STAYING RIGHT HERE, GOHAN!" ChiChi demanded.
Gohan watched sadly as his father and friends went to blow away the tree.
"What good did it do to wish the forest back?" Krillin groaned when he saw the forest's lifeless trees.
As a group, Goku, Yamcha, Krillin , Tien and Chiatzou fired their ki blasts at the tree. When the smoke cleared, they were stunned to discover there was no damage to the tree whatsoever.
Harsh laughter rang out from the top of the tee. Goku floated to the top of the tree followed by the others.
"You CAN'T destroy the Tree Of Might!" Amond declared confidently.
"Get in our way and you'll end up dead!" Diaz chuckled.
Soon the battle was on. Cacoa quickly brought Yamcha to the ground and the combined form of the Beenz brothers took down Chiatzou. Tien stepped into his small friend's place.
Krillin took on Amond and Daiz chose to fight Goku.
Gohan had gone to the cave to play with Icarus. The little purple dragon was nowhere to be found.
"Maybe he got mad at me for shooing him away," Gohan sighed. Suddenly Icarus was right before him. The dragon seemed frantic to show Gohan something. Gohan climbed on the little dragon's back.
"Show me what it is, Boy!" Gohan exclaimed.
Gohan was taken to the site where the battle raged on between the Z- fighters and the Crusher Corps. He leapt from Icarus's back to join in the fray. After bringing down Tien, the Beenz brothers attacked Gohan.
Turles watched Gohan on his ship's visual screen with great interest.
"Could it be?...Yes! Yes! The brat is a Saiyan!"
The commander of the Crusher Corps face lit up with a cruel smile. He had plans for the boy.
Gohan bravely defeated the Beenz brothers but he cringed with horror as he looked about. Krillin, Yamcha, Tien and even Chiatzou were lying lifeless on the ground.
"NO! THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING!" Gohan screeched in horror.
Tears filling his eyes, the half-Saiyan backed into someone standing behind him.
"Dad?" Gohan asked in confusion as he looked up at what seemed to be a mirror image of his father.
But why would his father be wearing silver and black Saiyan armor?
"You're not my dad!' the little demi-Saiyan exclaimed.
"I am Turles. You must be Kakarot's brat. Come with me. I can teach you to live as a true Saiyan."
"I'm not going ANYWHERE with YOU!" Gohan snarled.
"You don't really have a choice!" Turles smirked as he snatched Gohan up.
Gohan sighed with relief as Piccolo suddenly appeared. But his relief quickly turned to horror as Turles blasted the Namek. The demi-Saiyan gave a piteous cry as he realized Piccolo had also been slain.
"Let go of my Gohan!" Goku roared. He had disposed of the Crusher Corps and he planned to rescue his son.
Turles threw a power ball up into the sky and forced Gohan to stare at the shimmering ball of light.
"NO! DON'T LOOK GOHAN!" Goku cried out.
Poor Gohan was completely helpless as his eyes were held open against his will by the cruel pirate. His eyes grew red, fur sprouted ...
Gohan awoke feeling strange. He flushed with embarrassment as he realized he wasn't wearing a stitch of clothing. A strange garment and a set of Saiyan-like armor were thrown by his feet.
"Put those on and be quick about it!" the imposing figure of Turles demanded.
The son of Goku looked around frantically " DAD! DAD, WHERE ARE YOU?"
Turles sighed,"Ah, Yes! You don't remember what happened after your transformation."
"W-what a-are y-you talking about?" Gohan stammered.
His eyes followed Turles's outstretched hand. He gasped in horror at the sight. An indistinguishable bloody mass lay on the ground but there was no mistaking the blood-soaked orange gi with his father's insignia.
"SO kind of you to get rid of your sire for us during your time as an Oozaru. He really was quite the pest!" Turles said casually.
"NO, I DIDN'T! I WOULDN'T!" Gohan choked.
"No?" Turles smirked "Look under your feet, boy!"
The trembling youngster lifted up his left foot and blanched in absolute disgust. His foot was stained red with bits of sticky black spiky hair with chunks of flesh attached. His stomach threatened to heave.
"Tough break, Kid," the wounded Diaz said. He was the only surviving member of the Crusher Corps.
"I'll give you a choice, brat. You can come with us or stay here and die!" Turles announced.
"NNNOOOOOOOOOO!" Gohan screamed...
Chi-Chi leapt out of the bed she shared with Goku "I'll bet that dragon's back and he's trying to eat Gohan!"
"Aw, C'mon! Chi-Chi!" Goku sighed.
They both hurried to Gohan's room. He was sitting up in his bed, tears rolling down his little face.
"Oh! My poor baby!" Chi-Chi exclaimed.
"Look's like someone had a bad dream!" Goku mused
"You're alive! Turles didn't win!..."
Goku hugged his son tightly," Turles will never hurt anyone again, Gohan."
Chapter 2: The Start Of A New Life
Here's chapter two! Thanks to Ryo-chan wolfgirl,Tomaka167, Chimera prime and Laania for all the reviews on Chapter one.
Disclaimer: I don't own DBZ or any of its characters, Akira Toriyama does!
Gohan pulled himself out of the crude bunk and fought to quell the wave of nausea that threatened as his tortured mind rehashed the events of the night before.
Daiz threw a deep blue colored garment to him " Step out into the hall there'a shower in the first room on the right. When you are finished getting cleaned up, put on the armor you were given and report to the front of the ship. Understood?"
"Yes, Sir!" Gohan choked out.
Daiz smirked at his reply and almost turned to leave. He faced the son of Goku and spoke again "When it comes to Turles, don't speak unless YOU are spoken to. You will address him as Master Turles or Commander Turles. The least you may address him by will be commander. Got it, Kid?"
"Yes, Sir!" Gohan affirmed.
"Good. Now hurry up, Brat! We'll be landing soon," Daiz informed him as he left the room.
Landing? The little half-Saiyan felt his stomach clench at the thought. Where were they taking him? It wasn't back to his home that was for sure. His home no longer existed.
Gohan stepped into a large metallic room with what appeared to be several showerheads on the wall to his left. On the right was a seating area and a waste disposal unit. A stack of rather plush looking towels lay on a shelf just a few feet from the shower.
It didn't take more then a moment to figure out the simple controls for turning on the water and regulating the temperature. Gohan allowed for a brief shedding of tears for his lost home and family as the warm water cascaded from his hair. Reaching for a towel, he dried himself and dressed quickly.
Daiz sighed at the silence of the ship's main room. Amond's low timbered voice no longer gave reports to Turles at hourly intervals. The former Kabochan prince stared at the empty seats left behind by his fallen comrades. Lakasei and Rasin's noisy arguments had annoyed him but he would actually be glad to hear the Beenz brothers' noisy tirade instead of the empty silence.
"i suppose our " guest" is preparing for the landing on Daznicos?" Turles's voice questioned.
"Yes, Master Turles," Daiz answered.
With a curt nod, Turles turned back to the charts he was observing.
Gohan nervously entered the room wondering what was going to be expected of him. Just then the ship gave a sudden lurch and though unfamiliar with the craft , the youngster knew the ship had landed.
"Come here, Brat!" Turles ordered.
"Y-Yes, M-master Turles?"
Turles chuckled at the boy's reply. He was obviously frightened but the brat did address him with the proper respect.
"I have business to attend to on planet Daznicos. You will go with Daiz and obey his orders. I will only warn you once not to attempt to escape. I'll not tolerate disobedience and you won't survive the punishment for the attempt. Is that understood?" the pirate commander demanded.
"Yes, M-m..Commander Turles!" was his answer.
"Good. Don't snivel, boy. You're a Saiyan, remember that," Turles advised.
"Daiz, Take the brat and get him two more sets of armor, some proper fitting clothing and...," the dark-skinned Saiyan began.
His instructions were interupted by a loud growl from Gohan's stomach as it protested the lack of nourishment since the night before. Gohan's face flushed red with embarrassment as Daiz snickered.
"And do get the brat something to eat," Turles added with a smirk as he walked to the entrance of the ship and left the two alone.
"You heard the commander. Let's get going, Kid!" Diaz sighed.
Gohan stared at the bustling crowds at the Zadezkon Market on planet Daznicos. He'd never seen so many people in one place!
"We'll stop here first, Kid!" Daiz announced as they approached a beautiful building made of brilliantly polished Aleska wood. A blue tiled roof accented the deep red of the wooden structure. It was a restaurant of some sort the half-Saiyan realized.
Delicious scents wafted through the air causing a noisy reaction from Gohan's empty stomach. The Crusher Corps member ignored the boy's complaining belly as he opened the heavy brass door and stepped into the establishment.
Gohan gasped at the sheer elegance of the place. A luxurious royal blue carpet accented the pale pink marble that composed the floor. Cushioned chairs of rare woods sat at tables carved from single Ganis trees. Pristine white cloths covered the tables that were set with golden utensils and crimson plates emblazoned with a gold dragon design.
The few times Chi-Chi allowed an outing to a restaurant, they were cheaply priced fast- food joints as she simply couldn't afford the appetites of two Saiyan males anywhere else. He felt guilty about even considering eating after the hellish events of the night before but hunger was quickly winning over guilt.
A red-skinned reptile in a royal blue robe quickly escorted the unlikely pair to one of the exquisitely appointed tables. Gohan was too busy gawking at the place to pay attention to what Daiz ordered. The son of Goku's jaw dropped as a cart laden with food was wheeled to their table. There were plates piled high with roasted meats, great bowls of rice dishes, succuclent fruits and savory vegetables and sweet cakes were stacked on several large platters.
The former Kabochan prince chuckled as he noticed that the youngster's mouth began to water as he stared in amazement at smorgasbord before him.
" Well let's eat, Brat!" Diaz urged. Gohan didn't have to be told twice.
Gohan had several bags of what Diaz considered proper clothing slung across his shoulder. The dark-green haired pirate was examining a pair of boots when a purple rodent -like creature walked up to them.
"Those are made of Talasium lizard hide. Dreadfully exspensive! I'm sure YOU will want to go elsewhere to afford..." the rodent being started.
Daiz seized the haughty life-form by its throat " I can AFFORD to buy this dump and toss YOU out of it!"
"A-a -a th-thousand pardons , sir! I-I meant no offense!" the rodent whined.
"Get two pair that will fit the boy. NOW!" the furious black and green armored warrior demanded.
The little half-blood couldn't help but giggle as the terrified merchant hastened to obey.
"Gotta keep those snobs in line!" Daiz growled.
Daiz and Gohan soon ran into Turles who was making several purchases of his own. Gohan sighed if it hadn't been for the horrible night before, this "outing" would almost be considered fun. He noticed a thick red book lying on a shelf in the shop where Turles was currently walking about. When he picked up the book and leafed through it, stories of hundreds of planets filled the table of contents. The volume's cover was rich crimson leather with gilt pages and lavish illustrations.
"You make a habit of reading, Brat?" Turles's voice rang out startling the boy.
" Yes, Master Turles. My mother made sure I read every day for my studies but I l-like reading too," Gohan fought to keep his voice from trembling.
Gohan sighed as the Saiyan snatched the book away from him and walked away. He guessed that Turles didn't want him to be reading.
" Let's go, Brat!" Daiz called out.
No sooner had they stepped out of the shop then a slim attractive female rushed up to Turles who was just behind them.
"How long have you been here? You WEREN'T going to leave without stopping by were you?" a young raven- tressed pale complexioned female huffed. She wore her long hair piled on top of her head and an almost sheer green gown that stopped at her knees.
"I might have considered it, Kerlis," Turles teased.
"You're horrible!" the female complained. Her green eyes showed annoyance.
"That's not what you said the last night I was here," the Saiyan male taunted.
Kerlis noticed the young boy that stood next Daiz "Oh! He's adorable! "
The woman ruffled Gohan's hair and then turned to the Saiyan male with her eyes blazing " ALL RIGHT! WHO IS SHE?"
"Who are you going on about?" Turles smirked.
"HIS mother! I know he's yours' , look at THAT TAIL!" Kerlis screeched.
The pirate commander burst into laughter " Calm down, Kerlis. We picked the boy up on the way here. I have no brats and you should be well aware of that!"
Kerlis suddenly appeared apologetic as she wrapped her arms around the Saiyan's muscular shoulders " Sorry, I couldn't help but be jealous if some other woman was to catch your eye. You will come see me before you leave?"
"I suppose I could squeeze you in somewhere in my busy schedule," the dark-skinned Saiyan sighed.
"Later!" Kerlis said brightly and she blew a kiss to the Saiyan as she left. Turles merely rolled his eyes.
" What happens when she finds out about Tazinora, Commander?" Daiz snickered.
" Don't forget Anglis," the Saiyan male smirked," I imagine things will be quite interesting around here if they find out about each other."
Daiz and Turles walked away expressing their amusement at the situation leaving a confused Gohan to follow after them.
Gohan sat in absolute awe of the place Turles chose for them to consume their noon meal. The place where he and Daiz had dined paled by comparison. Sheets of mother of pearl composed the walls and gold tiles made in the pattern of a scallop shell covered the floor. At intervals in the walls, there was a display of great tanks holding fantastic denizens of ocean creatures from several planets.
The table and chairs they sat in were made of pure glistening crystal. A silk sea-foam colored tablecloth covered the table set with beautiful plates decorated with engraved sea creatures and finely wrought silver utensils.
Turles ordered for Gohan and the six-year-old dug into his meal with gusto. The crispy golden fish and assorted seafood on his plate was pure heaven to his palate. A delectable fruit juice of some sort filled the glass next to his plate, Turles did not allow him to have any of the wine that the two pirates were having no trouble consuming by the bottle.
Turles left his seat for a moment to speak with someone at another table. Gohan chose that moment to question Daiz.
" Do you always eat like this? Sir!" he quickly added.
Daiz laughed softly,"Call me Daiz, Brat. And yes, when you're in Turles's company only the finest food and wine will do."
Gohan sat silently aboard Turles's ship wishing he had something to do besides relive his horrible memories. To his utter amazement, Turles walked over and dropped the book he had admired in the shop earlier that day next to him. The startled boy jumped as the book struck the floor.
" Pay more attention to your surroundings, Brat!" Turles snapped.
Turles turned his own attention to Daiz.
" Daiz, It will be quite late when I return. A little schedule planning is in order," the Saiyan announced with a leer.
Daiz snickered," Yes, Master Turles."
"I don't expect you awake when I return, Brat,"the pirate commander advised.
"Yes, Master Turles!" Gohan spoke up quickly.
Daiz turned to Gohan when Turles departed and pointed to the book in the half-Saiyan's hands.
"You've certainly made an impression, Brat!"
"What do you mean, Daiz?" Gohan asked.
"Turles must see something in you. He wouldn't have bought that book without a purpose for it," the green-haired pirate mused.
"M-maybe he was just being nice," Gohan suggested hopefully.
That caused a roar of laughter from Daiz "Turles? Turles being nice? That's rich. kid!"
Daiz heard a soft sobbing and sighed as he realized it must be the brat. All the excitement of the day must have kept his mind from dwelling on his horrible loss.
Gohan tried to choke back his sobs as Daiz appeared in the room he had been assigned to. The former Kabochan prince looked down at the miserable child, it seemed as if as if there was just a flicker of pity in the space pirate's eyes.
"You'd best be quiet when Master Turles returns. But for now get it out. All that grief and sorrow you've got buried inside. Cry and scream all you want, I'll be in the shower so I won't hear you. And after you can't shed another tear. You put it behind you and move on. Do what you have to to survive," Daiz advised." I know what it's like to be the only survivor of your home planet."
"D-Daiz, Why are YOU with Turles?" Gohan asked.
"That's a LONG story , Brat!" Daiz muttered.
"I'm not going anywhere!" the little half-Saiyan sighed.
Daiz sat at the foot of the bed. He could just imagine the reactions from his former crewmates if they saw him now. The fierce Daiz telling a story! To a Saiyan brat! He could almost hear the laughter ringing in his ears.
"Kabocha was once a desert planet of fierce warriors..."
