REALLY IMPORTANT A/N THAT YOU WILL MAKE YOU GO CRAZY IF YOU READ: Espeon804 here with another great chapter! I have an announcement to make…
#1, This story is almost complete. As soon as they face Zarbon and Dodoria then it's over! *Readers take out guns.* Woah! Woah, woah, woah, woah! Wait! Listen to me! LISTEN!
#2 (Please don't squeeze me to death.) It will continue.
Somebody: But you just said it was ove-
I said listen! It will continue because…
#3 There will be a sequel! (Readers jaws drops) Yep! It shall be called "The revenge of the Earthling Saiyan" and it will be based off the Frieza saga of Dragon Ball Z Kai. What's the point of just doing the Saiyan saga? Goku dreaming about his father telling him to avenge his race did not happen for nothing! Do you guys even read my bio page? You should because it does have some useful information I post before I announce it on my fanfic A/Ns! I announced the new story coming up days ago!
Hm, maybe "The vengeance of the Earthling Saiyan" could be the title. It sounds catchy.
You decide! (or maybe I will!) I plan to make 24 chapters but there could be more. Who knows? I have no idea when this will be complete.
Scratch that! I'm using that title I just came up with. It sounds epic! Vengence! Yeah, that'll do. You can still try to convince me with some of your own.
Okay, scratch that again. Fill in the blank in the reviews; "The _ of the Earthling Saiyan." So far I thought of "revenge" and "Vengeance" It can't just be anything. It has to be one word (or two if short) It must involve something about the Saiyans rebelling against Frieza. Oh! I thought of another word! I'll stop so that you can think of one. Who knows? I might choose yours.
If one of you convince me, I'll do an OC for ya, or a chapter plot request. Huh? Huh? *raises eyebrow* c'mon! You can't turn down that offer! Review your thoughts on the chapter and/or for a word for the title of the sequel!

- Chapter 18: Attack on the Namekians! The truth about Planet Vegeta! -
Last time on "The wrath of the Earthling Saiyan":
Kakarot gets into one of his famous stances. "I warned you." He in a flash sprints at Raspberry and his fist goes right through the human-alien's gut. Despite the fact that his arm now has blood leaking all over, he grins so very darkly, it even caught Raditz's full attention. As the alien gaps at the sight on his chest, Kakarot speaks. "Oh? You don't like that? Good. I love to seeing you suffer. It's not funny when you are the one dead right?" He looks at the other aliens. "He's probably Human... let's see… if I recall correctly they say a Human's intestines is how long? 27? 29 feet? Let's find out." He frowns when the alien is slumped dead. "Aw… I was just getting into the good part. Oh well." He lets go and the lifeless body thuds to the ground. He looks at the 3 remaining aliens. "Who's next?" He expected fear but, he got angry looks.
"Kakarot… you are such a fool." Raditz sighs.
"What? I killed him easily!" Kakarot points at his bloody hand.
"He was the weakest member. Use your scouter." Raditz says.
Kakarot turns on his scouter and the numbers displayed are… oh crap. "Oh… they are stronger than us are they?"
"Like I said before. A fool!" Raditz shouts angrily at his face. "Now everyone will know that we are here!" Many ki attacks whiz past them. "C'mon! We have to go now! We can't fight them off ourselves! It's suicide!"
"Aw… not even a little?" Kakarot just wants to give it a try.
"Now!" Raditz leaps back up to the beams and swings away in the same style he came in. It's faster than running after all. They can't fly out as mentioned before.
Still, it's a problem. "Raditz! I can't do it like that!"
"Yes you can! Just trust your instincts!"
"I don't know! Just figure it out!"
Kakarot has no time to argue any longer. His shoulder is grazed by one on the attacks and he does not wait another second. He leaps up on the steel beams and begins jumping. He is using his legs like last time. He has trouble with keeping up with his brother. He is trying so hard that he nearly loses balance several times. Suddenly he slips and he quickly grabs one of the beams with his hand. He finds it quite easy. He swings on them as if he is on monkey bars. It's kinda funny. Well, would have if he wasn't being chased by strong aliens that his brother is not daring to fight. Still, he struggles since his stomach is still empty. he finds himself slowing down. "Raditz…"
The long haired Saiyan turns around just in time to see his little brother loose grip due to weakness and fall to the ground. He is surrounded by the 3 aliens who point their ki attacks and well… point blank range.
Something inside Raditz snaps. Seeing his brother helpless like this and about to be killed fuels to fire inside him into a wildfire. "No… I already loss my mother and father. I will not loose my brother! Not again!" Kakarot screams when he is hit on the back with a ki blast, fully knocking him down. That does it. "You bastard! No one kills Kakarot except me!" He dives down with pink energy gathering from both hands. "Double Sunday!" They are fired and it sends the aliens flying back. He lands and sprints towards them. He unleashes a series of rapid punches and kicks at the aliens. "How do you like that? I call that Dynamite Monday!" He collects static like energy on his hand. "Top that with a Saturday Crush!" He thrusts the hand down and the yellow alien coughs out blood. He gives them no time to recover. he leaps backwards and gathers energy again."And to finish that off… with my Weekly Special!" He fires several blast from his hands and the pound on the aliens like bullets. Smoke from the explosions cover them up. Raditz finds this as a good opportunity. But the question his dazed brother asks interrupts it.
"Raditz.. why are so many of your attacks are named from the days of the week?"
He ignores him as he walks over to him.
"And… why did you do that? You… saved me?"
He hauls his brother over his shoulder and runs out the hall and flies around the ship. He flies out the exit in no time. He breathed deeply, trying to catch his breath. Did he just attacked without any though? No… kakarot did not rub off any of that soft part on him did he? He gets that though out of his head with another. "Vegeta is going to kill me if he finds out."
"I'm afraid that I did Raditz."
Raditz spins around and spots the Saiyan prince with arms crossed and a frown on face. "Oh hell."
"Though… I am a bit impressed with you and your brother. You Raditz, because normally you would be a coward at the face of death but you dove in there to save your brother. As for Kakarot… from the blood on his hands, it looks like he killed one of them without second thoughts." Vegeta's face turns to anger. "Thanks to you two idiots, Frieza is aware of our whereabouts! I should kill you where you stand!"
- Now -
"Wait… we have to start searching for them… now?" Kakarot tries to get full information of the prince's plan. How will they pull that off? Frieza already knows that they are present on Planet Namek. What she doesn't know yet is that he is here with his son. Two more Saiyans. She won't be pleased.
Raditz is getting a little use to his brother's ignorance but, it still strongly irritates the heck out of his nerves. "For the 5th time, yes. Now stop asking unless you want me to punch you."
"So this Frieza person… Is she really strong… like… stronger than all of us?" Kakarot wants to learn a little more about this alien.
He gets no answer. Instead his comrades stare at him with blank expressions. Then, Raditz and Nappa busts out laughing. This leaves the earthling Saiyan confused.
"Y-you th-think that.. hahaha! You think that Frieza is a girl?! Hahahaha!" Raditz couldn't stop laughing. He hasn't laughed this hard and years. Somehow his brother brought it out.
"W-well you gave me a discription. You said he is like some lizard alien almost human looking with a very long tail. Three fingers and toes, black nails and lips! She must wear lipstick like Bulma does! She sounds like a girl too!" Kakarot points out his reasons of assumption but it is not helping because Raditz only laughs harder. "Stop laughing! It's not that funny!"
"Yes it is! You are more stupid than I remember!" Raditz laughs.
"Shut up Raditz! I am not!" Kakarot protests. He refuses to let his big brother pick on him anymore.
"I fell a little sorry for your son… to have such a naive idiotic father! HAHAHAHAAAAA!"
Kakarot gives Raditz a death glare. It isn't enough to make the laughter stop. "I've had enough!" He rises a fist over his brother and slams it on his skull through his thick hair. He is satisfied when his brother's laughter is replaced with a loud "Ow!" Kakarot puts his hand behind his head. "Now you know how I feel every time you do it to me. Outta knock some sense into ya."
Raditz rubs his head. He can't believe that Kakarot dared to do that! "Can't take a joke I see!" He shoves his little brother hard.
"Oh I can take a joke. You just don't know when to keep that mouth of yours quiet!" Kakarot growls.
"Look at who's talking! Your mouth runs like a motor!" Raditz snaps. He floats 3 feet away from his brother.
"Oh yeah? Well your mouth is nothing but garbage!" Kakarot snaps back. He closes the gap which is now only a foot long.
"Oh please! Your mouth runs worse than hell!" Raditz snarls.
"Your mouth runs better than you can fight!" Kakarot yells.
Raditz is now at his brother's face. He is nearly offended by that last comment. He is furious. How dare his brother say that! "You take that back!"
"I won't because it is true! I have surpassed you because of your arrogance!"
"Ooh! You're using big words now?!"
"I'm not as naive as you think!"
"Your son still is!"
"What does he have to do with this? Are you still made because he is half Saiyan?"
"I'm mad with you because of the fact that he exist! I would rather have him dead! I should had killed him when I had the chance!"
"How dare you!"
"True fact! I hate him all the way to his guts! Stupid Human blood! Blinding him! Pah! I hope Zarbon or Dodoria kills that halfbreed brat! A useless bastard!"
"You're the useless bastard!"
"Why you son of a-"
"SHUT UP!" Vegeta's angry shout was enough to end the argument which could have turned into another fight. He looks like he is about to explode. "I'm am tired of you two's bickering! It's stalling all of us! If you want to fight so damn bad go take that somewhere else to beat each other to death! I don't care! I just can't stand another moment of this!"
Kakarot and Raditz exchange angry glares before turning their backs on each other with crossed arms followed by a simple "Hmph!"
Nappa looks at the two before pointing out, "Those two sure do get along don't they? Makes me glad that I don't have a brother."
"Just get going Nappa." Vegeta growls. He is stopped once more when Karot taps his arm. He growls even louder.
"Um… mister Prince Vegeta?" Karot says politely. He doesn't want to get on his bad side like his father and uncle did.
"Do you have a brother?"
The Saiyan prince narrows his eyes before kicking Karot right on the stomach. This catches Kakarot's and Raditz's attention as the kid starts to gaps from having the wind knocked out of him. "I'm sick of you too. Asking all those questions." He glances at Kakarot who looks as if he is about to attack him. "You wouldn't try."
Kakarot feels the powerful urge to beat Vegeta to a pulp for hurting his son, but Raditz holds him back. It's clear. It won't do any good. He'll just end up killing himself trying. Still, his body is burning with the anger he tries so hard to contain. The prince laughs it off. Kakarot can't do anything.
"So Vegeta. How do you suppose we get one of those Dragon Balls?" Nappa asks. They need a plan.
"Simple. These Namekians live in villages. Earth one holds an elder guarding a Dragon Ball. It'll take some convincing. They'll hand it over in the end." Vegeta explains. "If Frieza can do it, so can we." He turns on his scouter and it scans several power levels gathered in one spot. "So there they are. I think it's time we have a little fun."
The Saiyans take off into the skies and soar towards the readings. Vegeta and Nappa up front as usual while the other three, Kakarot, Raditz and Karot are close behind, almost forming a pyramid. Endless plains and standing stranded cliffs is the only landscape they see so far. Over the trees a village appears. It's fairly small. The houses there are in a dome like fashion. The doors open upwards instead of what Kakarot is use to, opening to the side.
Vegeta suddenly stops and the other Saiyans quickly obey the silent command. He hovers in the air above the village with crossed arms and his signature smirk on his face. "Perfect. They have no idea." His small smirk turns into a grin. "I feel a little sorry for Frieza. He wouldn't know what was coming."
Kakarot isn't all too well convinced. "How are you so sure about this? Don't they have scouters too?"
Vegeta expected the question to pop up. He answers almost immediately. "While you and your brother were sleeping in I did a little scouting. One of the Namekians was foolish enough to fight Frieza's goons… no, four actually. The elder blasted their scouters. Frieza has his but he hardly ever uses it. You two missed a lot. It was quite entertaining to watch. If he doesn't have his any longer, I will have the element of surprise." He starts to laugh which caught the villager's attention. He begins to hover down. His feet touches the ground and he allows the Namekians to stare for a few moments.
"Who is that?" One Namekian asks.
"It's an alien! A bunch of them!" Another shouts.
Vegeta speaks up. "I wish to speak with your elder. I believe that you have a Dragon Ball I would like to have." He sees the shocked looks from the villagers. They did not expect anyone else to know about the magical orbs.
A aged Namekian walks to the scene with his cane in hand. He has a stern look on his face. A look of distrust. "I am the elder of this village. We do have a Dragon Ball. But I must ask you why do you intend to use it?"
The prince replies. "That's none of your business."
The elder narrows his eyes. "I sense an unspeakable evil in you. In you and your friends. I refuse to hand it over to any of you."
Vegeta doesn't get angry from his request being turned down. He still wears that same look on his face as he says; "Then you die." He points his index finger at the Namekian with his thumb sticking up, forming the classic hand pretend gun. "Bang." His finger fires a small ki blast and it travels as fast as a bullet. However, he didn't expect one of the younger Nameks to jump in front of the elder and take the bullet instead. He watches the shielder fall dead. He points his finger at the elder again. "Now let's try that again. Hand it over elder or things won't end well for you. I will have my comrades kill you all if necessary."
"N-no! I already told you before! I will not hand it over to anyone with a cold heart like you!"
"Hm. Stubborn aren't you?" He glances at the Saiyan General. "Nappa?"
The elite-class warrior snickers as he walks over to the villagers. He suddenly moves fast as a blur and he reappear behind a young Namekian adult. He kicks him hard on the back and he falls. Nappa fires a ki blast and the villager is killed.
"Still no I assume?" Vegeta asks. He gets no reply. He glances at Raditz now. "Raditz?"
Raditz does not hesitate. He sprints towards a Namekian adult and kicks him down. The Namekian recovers and kicks the low-class under his jaw. The Saiyan warrior spars with the Namek for a few seconds before ending it by chopping the alien's neck and thrusting his hand down with his Saturday Crush. He walks over to his brother with a look that reads "You're next."
Next? How will he kill a Namekian that is defenseless against him and probably won't even give him a good fight? Well, he did slaughter billions and billions of Humans so he isn't complaining.
The elder is horrified. watching his fellow Namekains falling one by one is really affecting him. "Stop! Stop!"
"Are you ready to hand it over now, or will you let more of your kind suffer death?" Vegeta asks. Once again all he gets is silence. The elder stares at him trembling in fear. This annoys the prince a bit. "So be it." He fires three ki blast at the elder but as expected, three Namekians took the attacks and died saving his life. They are really a bunch of idiots. Will they all risk their lives to save one who would pass by in old age anyway? He continues his slow firing that occurs every two seconds.
Kakarot stand there a bit puzzled. He wasn't called to kill any of them. It looks like Vegeta is going to kill the rest himself. He is a bit disappointed because he is left out. At the same time relieved because he isn't that cruel to kill like that. He would rather take them all down with one blast like he did with the Humans. He does not want to be covered with blood. He can't see how the others can do it without cringing. Sure, he killed Raspberry by punching him right through his guts but only because he kept teasing his family. He enjoyed seeing the look on his face but the blood on his hand disgusted him. He wouldn't dare say that outloud. He hates the fact that Earth made him so picky on how he ends lives.
He must've stood there thinking for a long while because he hears Vegeta call his name. Kakarot snaps out of his thoughts and sees the village houses damaged or smoking with dead Namekian bodies here and there.
Vegeta points at the elder. "He is very stubborn. I wonder if you can convince him."
Kakarot looks around in search for live Namekians but the only one alive is the elder and a Namekian child. The young and old. Two birds will be killed with one stone. Can he do it? He never killed a child physically. He would rather do it as a Giant Ape because in that form he cares about nothing but killing those who are weaker than him. In his base form… he is more mentally aware of his actions and is is a lot harder to pull those kind of things off. He looks at the ground thinking on how useless he can be sometimes.
"Not again." Raditz saw this coming. It's no surprise that the only time his Earth raised brother would kill without hesitation is when he is in the form of an Oozaru. "Don't think about it. Just do it." Not good advice but it's the best he has to offer at the moment.
Kakarot looks at the Namekians. He thinks back on how he killed a whole city full of people with his son on Earth before the day he transformed to finish the job. He blasted the all. It's something he is just now realizing. He never killed a single one with his hands or feet… or any part of his body. he found it easier and quicker to kill them with his ki.
Nappa gives the Saiyan a small fact. "You may think it's bad now. Just wait until you feel them die in your hands. You'll enjoy it."
He's a little disgusted at the words the general just said but he could be right. Kakarot approaches the two last standing Nameks. When he was a foot away he starts to crack his knuckles. The sound made him a little more eager to get it down, so a small dark smile does appear on his face.
"Make it slow and painful."
The words that came out of Vegeta's mouth made Kakarot's small smile disappear fast. He looks at the two who remains. The elder hugs the child in a protective stance, ready to accept death that stands a foot away. Then he looks at his brother who points at the two villagers. Then his son, who nods once, accepting whatever is about to happen. It's not so easy. He looks back at the villagers. He takes another step. He approaches them as if he was expecting one of them to do some kind of last minute ditch.
"This is the perfect time for you to call for your Saiyan side to come out again Kakarot." Raditz suggests.
He is right. If he waits any longer things won't end too well for him. This has to be a test. Vegeta is testing him to see if he would do this without any regret. Already he is failing with hesitation. If he knows the prince well enough, then he would probably be killed by him for failure. So, he closes his eyes and starts to push away whatever regretful thoughts he has. He pushes his mind towards the side of him that has been buried away for years only for it to resurface every now and then when angered. He has to bring it out now. Not being angry only makes it harder.
He hears the elder speaking to him. "Please… don't do this to us. Spare us please and just leave us alone…"
Kakarot feels himself getting excited. That's it. He begins to chuckle. "That's right. Beg. Beg for mercy." Having those weaker than him plead to be spared gets him more willing to kill them for some reason. He enjoys hearing them admit that he is stronger. He cracks his knuckles again as he walks closer to the two villagers. Just as he stand over them he opens his eyes which are not friendly as usual but filled with malice. He smiles darkly. "So stubborn. It's kinda sad."
"Don't do this to us…"
"You expect me to listen old timer?" Kakarot thinks a little harder. He never thought so hard like this in a while. Putting his brain in a lot of work makes his head spin. He reminds himself on why he is here. The past. He needs the Dragon Balls for Vegeta. He then remembers Kami. The Namekian on Earth who took away what made him different from the Humans…
He hates himself for allowing that to happen. Now he's starting to hate the Nameks for being in his presence because it reminds him of how such a fool he was back then. To think that he was some kind of Human freak. He is willing to end this now. He snacthes the child from the elder's graps by his head and ignores the child's sobs. "Look at him for the last time. You lose him if you don't give us what is rightfully ours."
The elder glares at the Saiyan. "You're a demon! How could you! All of you?!"
Kakarot looks at one of the dead Namekians that remind him of Piccolo. "So I'm a demon now? That's funny, coming from a species that I stumbled upon when I was a kid. He was the demon then. So… the tables have turned…" His fist collided with the child's skull. He hears a dull thud and the child is lifeless.
"No!" The elder screams.
Kakarot tosses the lifeless child aside like a doll and grabs the elder by the collar of his tunic. He pulls him up to his face. His dark smile deepens to the same style as Raditz's. He lets go of the elder and leaps over him. He lands behind him just as he begins to fall to the ground and puts him into a headlock. "Open up or suffer and die slowly!" He is finding this easier than he though. Nappa was right. He is enjoying every moment of this. He starts to put in pressure cutting off the oxygen from the Namek. He hears the alien struggle to speak. "What was that?" He releases enough pressure to let him speak.
His voice is horses but is still understandable. "Go ahead and kill me. But… you will never get that Dragon Ball…"
Kakarot knew that he would choose death over giving up something so valuable. "Too bad. You won't die quickly. You know that right?" He squeezes his body now. The sound of the elder screaming and his breaking bones is like music to the Saiyan's ears. His laugh is full of malice as he applies more pressure. He is laughing so evilly that it even scares Karot. "Ready to give up old man? You don't look like you'll last much longer!"
The elder screams louder as more and more pressure is applied. Kakarot's laughs are reduced to chuckles when the Namekian slumps unconscious. "Well, he didn't last long enough to fully entertain me." He places his hands one the alien's head and turns it to the right so fats and far. He hears the neck snap and the elder is dead. He lets go and the elder falls to the ground. He kicks his body lightly to ensure that he is dead. "Okay he's dead now!" His voice is mixed with a dark yet cheerful nature. That's Kakarot for you.
"I never expected you to actually do that. Once again you surprise me Kakarot." Vegeta admits. He looks over to one of the houses and walks inside. A Dragon Ball… big as a head sits on a purple pillow. "It's like stealing candy from a baby. It might as well been gift wrapped."
Raditz glances at the dead elder. He admits to himself that he is proud of his little brother. As each day goes by Kakarot is acting more and more like the Saiyan he should be. It did freak him out a little on how his brother suddenly had a very strong enjoyment on killing the Nameks. It must has something to do with the two on Earth. Kakarot hates them both so that explains a lot.
Vegeta walks out the house with the Dragon Ball tucked under his arm. He is delighted to have it under his possession. For once the brain damaged Saiyan actually did something right.
Kakarot is fascinated by the size of the Dragon Ball. "Wow. It's huge compared to the Earth Dragon Balls. It is as big as Nappa's head!"
"What are you trying to say?!" Nappa snaps, clearly insulted by the comment that was not meant or intentionally to be offensive.
Kakarot keeps his mouth shut. He reminds himself to not say his thoughts out loud all the time. He is always saying the wrong things at the wrong time. Still, he feels accomplished that he did this and he doesn't feel regretful. In fact, he feels better than he did all week. He isn't all that intimidated by Nappa anymore. Really, he never was but knowing how easily offended he is makes it easier to be easy around him. Vegeta? That's a different story.
"What are we going to do with it now?" Karot wonders.
"Good question. We'll have to put it in a good hiding place." Vegeta looks around the village for a good spot. "Now… lets see." His eyes lock on the green lake water sitting nearby. "Perfect." He walks over to the spot and tosses the magical orb in the lake. "No one would ever think of searching underwater." He starts to float up towards the sky. "We have to move. It won't be long until someone discovers that this place is a mess."
Kakarot rises with the others. His eyes are fixed on the village once again below him. "That can be taken care of." He cups his hands to the side and starts gathering energy to perform his Kamehameha Wave. He is interrupted when Raditz puts an arm out in front of him.
"No. It's better if we leave it as it is. Blasting it would attract attention. Scouter or not." The older brother explains.
Kakarot nods and makes the ki shrink into nothing. "So… now what?"
"We find the other Dragon Balls. Frieza may have them with him but I have the perfect plan." Vegeta explains.
Kakarot and the others listen in.
Vegeta looks at Karot with a slight laugh. "Live bait."
"Good idea!" Kakarot agrees. He pauses, realizing who the bait is. "Hey! You're putting my son in that situation?! That's suicide!"
"If he is too slow, yes, it's suicide. I'm sure he can handle it. If he dies, it won't other me. Do you actually think I care about that whiny little brat?"
Kakarot would protest but it is not a good idea. He'll only get a beating from the prince. He reluctantly agrees. He turns to his son and grabs his shoulders. "Hang in there okay? I have no idea where he will send you but do your best."
Karot nods once. "Okay dad. I'll try."
Vegeta uses his scouter to detect many power levels. He gets an reading and he looks pleased. "Looks like Dodoria left Frieza. He must be angry about losing his scouter!" He points west. "Fly there, and make sure you do what you do best."
Karot thinks that he is being praised. "What I do best? What's that?"
"Annoying the living hell out of everyone."
"Oh." Karot flies off to his destination. He uses his scouter to keep track of the traveling power level. It's way too high for him. Higher than maybe his father's. It scares him. If he is caught into a fight with whoever this guy is, he won't be able to even graze him. It feels as if minutes has passed and there is no sign of the guy.
"Stupid Namekian kid! Where did he go?!"
The ruff strong voice nearly startles Karot. The voice is very close, and so is the reading on his scouter. That has to be him. Karot approaches a cliff side and peaks from behind it. A huge, pink, bulky, and spiky alien man hovers in the air. He is looking at the ground restlessly. Karot assumes that he has to be looking for something, probably the kid he mentioned.
"I can't believe that he escaped! Why did Frieza send me after him?!" The pink man growls. "Stupid fragile scouter. It would be so much easier to find him at this rate! Why couldn't he send off Zarbon? It's always me!"
"Zarbon!" Karot recognizes that name. Zarbon is one of the two names Vegeta mentioned who are very loyal to Frieza. If he knows Zarbon so well then that must be… "He's Dodoria. Vegeta wanted me to bring him to him right? He looks so strong." He gathers his courage and reveals himself. "Hey!"
Dodoria spots Karot and frowns. "Who the heck are you kid?"
"Doesn't matter who I am! Your flying around here shouting is hurting my ears! Can you shut up!"
"What?!" It's working.
"If you stop shouting then maybe it would have been a lot easier to find him right? I bet he's gone now!"
"Who do you think you are?!" Dodoria just met this kid and he has somewhat familiar attitude.
Karot turns around and swings around his tail. "Nah, nah, nah-nah, nah!"
"You!" Dodoria is shocked. "Y-you're a Saiyan aren't you?! That doesn't make any since. A kid from that race shouldn't be around… unless one of those three Saiyans had a kid! I'll have to report Lord Frieza!" He begins to fly off but Karot flies to him and kicks him hard enough to make him crash into a cliff. He shoots out only to see the 5 year old flying away. "Why you! Come back here!"
Karot flies away as fast as he could push his ki. He is in a lot of danger now. He connects his scouter to one of the Saiyans. "Uh-uh!"
"What?" Raditz is the one in the other line.
"I think I found Dodoria!"
"What?! Is he close?!" Raditz shouts.
Raditz realizes how close his nephew's voice is. He looks up to the skies and sees the kid flying faster than he has ever seen him fly, dodging blast from Dodoria mouth. "Vegeta! He brought Dodoria!"
"What?" Vegeta looks up as well. "Well, that didn't take long!"
Dododria is so close to catching him. He was ready to unleash another blast when he spots three. no four more Saiyans. Where did the other one came from?! "What the?!"
Vegeta chuckles with crossed arms. "I think it's time that I introduce you to someone."
Dodoria is even more surprised on what he sees. He stares at Kakarot as if he recognizes him. "He looks just like Bardock!"
Kakarot overhears him and shouts; "What do you know about my father?!"
"Father?!" Dodoria knows now. Raditz and Kakarot share the same father, which makes them brothers. A thoughts hits him. "You must be Kakarot. That Saiyan baby that was sent away from Vegeta!"
Vegeta wants to gain more information from the alien he has known since he was a child. "And how do you know about that?"
Dodoria smirks. He isn't terrified by being surrounded by a whole bunch of monkeys. He sees something that he really needs. "Hey, let's forget about all this. You have something that I want you see? Your scouters. All of you know that you won't stand a chance against me so how about you hand it over and I will leave you alone." He was talking to Kakarot clearly.
The earth raised Saiyan takes off his red scouter and hold it up. "Oh, you mean this?"
"That's right. Just hand it over."
Kakarot knows why the alien wants it. He may not be all so smart but he does know that if he hand the scouter to the alien he would be more likely to find the Dragon Balls before them. He waves away his words. "Sorry. Can't do that."
"Why you! That's it! I'll just take it by force!" He starts to fly towards the low-class but Vegeta gets in the way but appearing right in front of him. "Out of my way!" His voice is lightly shaking.
"Hm. You seem scared of attacking me aren't you?" As Dodoria growls Vegeta continues. "Yes, that must be you overheard my battle with Cui, you realized that I am considerably stronger than I was before. And now you're terrified!"
Dodoria floats backwards a bit more. "No!"
Vegeta huffs. This guys is denying everything he just said. He really is a coward. "You saw it on your scouter didn't you?" As Dodoria backs away even more he adds; "You're weak compared to me!"
"No! There was no way that power reading was accurate! You can't be that strong and I will prove it!" He yells in fury as he gathers then fires huge orange ki blast at the prince recklessly, not stopping. Seeing no results he panics as the prince suddenly appears right behind him.
"I warned you not to underestimate me but you chose not to listen!"
"So desperate are we. Shame." Vegeta says. Dodoria attempts to punch him but Vegeta effortlessly dodges. He dodges all punches and kicks. He jumps over the alien while grabbing his pink thick arms, making them painfully turn over the wrong direction. As Dodoria struggles the Saiyan prince laughs. "You're slower than I remember!"
"Ahhhh! Vegeta!" Dodoria screams in pain.
"We Saiyans grow stronger with each battle. You already knew that didn't you? That's why when I was injured by one of your allies, I became stronger! It's impressive isn't it? Just admit it! I've been fighting and improving while you were getting lazy and soft!" Vegeta laughs evilly as he pulls Dodoria's arms apart.
"Vegeta! Wait! I know about something that you would really want to hear! I-I know about the truth on what happened to Planet Vegeta!"
This was enough to have Vegeta loosen his grip a bit."What did you say? Planet Vegeta? What do you know about it?! Start talking!"
"I will! I will! But first you have to let me go!"
Vegeta growls but does so, and the pink warrior backs off while rubbing his arms. He cannot believe how strong this Saiyan has became. "So what? I guess that it's a guarantee that you will kill me as soon as I tell you huh?"
"I guarantee that I will kill you right now if you don't start talking!" Vegeta is really losing his patience.
"Alright." Dodoria backs away a bit. "When Planet Vegeta was destroyed, the fact itself is true, but the cause of it being a meteor is not." He sees that he has all the Saiyan's attention so he continues. "Frieza knew that one Saiyan could never get in his way but a whole army of them could be a problem. You see… Frieza started to realize that more Saiyan babies are being born with highly developed combat skills… such as yourself Vegeta. It was a problem, because he knew that your kind wouldn't stay loyal to him forever, so he was left with two choices; See what happens when a group of Saiyan baby warriors grow up to a powerful army or wipe out the only race who could powerfully oppose him. It was a tough call but I think he made a good choice in the end. So, he decided to kill them all. To make sure it was done right, he did it himself, destroying Planet Vegeta and every stinkin' monkey on it! And you thought it was a coincidence that you were sent off to another planet while yours was destroyed! He kept you alive knowing that a Saiyan prince would make a great addition to his team." The alien turns his attention to Kakarot. "As for you Kakarot, your father is one of the reasons why Frieza fully decided to destroy the planet. He came to face Frieza in combat himself in attempt to stop his plans and save Vegeta… only for him to be consumed by the same attack that destroyed your homeworld." He chuckles at the Saiyans expressions. "So there it is. All of you are a part of our private joke. How about you take the moment to sink that in while I inform Frieza that you are here?"
"Oh, I'll be fine… but… you won't." The cold hate filled voice coming from Kakarot gives him full attention. "I can't believe that all these years, the Saiyans were loyal to Frieza, and then he threw them off! I was right! He killed my father!" He gets into his Kamehameha Wave stance. "I will never forgive him for that!"
Vegeta stands next to the low-class warrior. He too has something to say to Dodoria. "I don't care about my home planet, my family, or any of the other Saiyans that Frieza killed!" His body is engulfed with raging blue aura so strong that the ground shakes and rocks start to rise from the ground. "I am just disappointed with myself for not figuring it out a lot sooner if I had known that I would have never wasted all my life doing all of your dirty work!"
Dodoria knows what that means. he boosts his ki and flies away at top speed while screaming; "FRIEZAAAAAA!"
Vegeta gather energy on one hand and releases it as a gigantic blue blast. Next to it is Kakarot's Kamehameha Wave. They hit the fleeing alien and he screams as his body is torn to shreds. Vegeta never asked for help but he decides to let it slide. Kakarot held his own grudge towards Frieza so there's no reason to be all angry towards him. He lowers his hand down with a smirk. "Interesting. Even the mighty Frieza quivers in fear of the Saiyans. We might just be able to defeat him after all. A mere coward."
Raditz feels stupid. He sees his brother look at him for a moment before flying away unexpectedly. That look means his brother is unforgiving. He was right about Planet Vegeta and their father the whole time and Raditz shoved it all away like it was some lie. A story. As if Kakarot is the idiot. The whole time… Raditz was the idiot. "Kakarot…"
Nappa walks over to Raditz. "So it was a vision he had. He proved us all wrong." He doesn't care about the fact that Raditz is in the unforgiving zone right now. "Looks like your brother really hates you right now."
Raditz suddenly shoots further up to the skies and flies after his brother.
"Uncle! Wait!" Karot gets ready to go after him but Vegeta grabs his leg. "Huh?"
"No. Let them be. It's best if they solve their own problems. besides, they need to." Vegeta admits. "If they don't, when the time comes when we do face Frieza then they will be distracted by their grudges upon one another instead of the tyrant." He lets go of his foot. "Besides. You need a little training anyway."
"Training?" Karot repeats, a little scared on the idea of the prince's version of training.
"Right, because we're going to need all the help we need. But when we face Frieza, don't stand in my way. I will be the one to defeat him, and no one else. This training is just for you to live long enough to see another day after you do run into him. Got that?"
Karot nods once.
Kakarot continues to fly away. He needs a place to clear his mind. Somewhere to calm down and think of a way to defeat the horrible monster who killed his father who fought him in vain. He finds a cave and lands at the mouth. Just as he was about to walk inside he senses familiar energy just as his scouter beeps to let him know of someone's presence. "Go away Raditz."
Raditz ignores the request and starts to walk to his brother. "Kakarot. I was wrong… I hate to admit it… but... you were right the whole time."
"And you shoved it all aside!" Kakarot snaps. "You got angry at me because you did not want to be wrong! Why didn't you just listen?! It's that arrogance that gets in the way of your thoughts. It's always about you!"
"Don't push it." Raditz warns him. "I came here to speak with you."
"I don't want to hear it." Kakarot begins to walk away.
Raditz follows. "Kakarot! Don't you turn your back on me!" A ki blast is fired from the cave's mouth and it explodes at near his feet, forming a crater on the ground and knocking him over. He gets to his knees seeing his little brother looking at him from inside.
"I want to be left alone right now! Let me just think!" As he goes further inside he gives out his last warning. "Go away. If you come in I will hit you for real this time because I missed on purpose! You have always turned your back at me anyway, no matter how hard I tried to impress you. And… if you even go as far to hurting my son, I will find you and I won't hold back. If you go beyond that and kill him I will end you!"
Raditz watches his little brother's shadow disappear in the darkness. He growls, cursing in 5 different languages. Why is it that all the sudden, his brother seems to hate him so much? Then again… he did nearly killed his own nephew… he remembers what he said in childhood too;
"Lies. He's just a crybaby!" Raditz growls. "I don't like him! He's weak! The other saiyans are laughing at us because of that! Why does the weakest Saiyan on Vegeta have to be my brother?!" He starts to walk away quickly but Bardock grabs his arm to prevent him from going any further. "Let me go!"
"Raditz, I Understand that you are upset. We are too but he will grow up stronger. You can see him again when he is fully grown when his mission is complete." Gine explains. 'just take care of him if you do. He is a bit goofy now and he may hold on to that for a while."
"I'm sure that Kakarot will be fine. You'll be proud to see him." Bardock adds.
"No I won't. He'll stay that way forever!" Raditz shouts. "I can't see how the doctors are so interested in him! Potential! That's all they ever talk about! Stupid potential! How do they favor a weakling over me?! I was stronger than him when I was born so I stayed here! It's always about him! I hope that stupid Kakarot forgets who he is so that he won't be favored anymore! I hope that he will never be a true warrior! He will never be anyway!"
*End of flashback*
Raditz growls again. Anger fills his body once again. This time is towards himself;
"It's not fair! He's being sent away! It's not fair! IT'S NOT FAIR!" He punches one of the table legs and it breaks. He yelps as the table collapses and falls on top of him. A second later it blasts to pieces from his ki. He stands there with his arms up to the side. They drop and he looks at the ground and cries heavily.
*End of flashback*
He had always hated his little brother for being weak;
Raditz kicks the pod door. the loud noise startles Kakarot so the baby starts to whine. "Oh no! No, no, no! Don't start! You better not!" His baby brother starts to cry and Raditz covers his ears. "Stop you stupid baby! Crying is not going to help! It won't prevent you from being sent away! It won't!" His tears return. "You'll just cry like a helpless baby on that planet and you'll attract attention and could get killed by a weak alien animal! Then… we'll really be laughed at! Just stop crying! Stop! You stupid…"He breaks into crying himself again and slides down to the floor. "It's not fair! It is not fair!"
*End of flashback*
Then what he wished for as a child came true;
Goku turns back to look at this evil man who keeps calling him this Kaka-whatever it is.
Raditz stares him down, most likely angry about his brother's stupidity. "Have you been on this planet so long that you've forgotten even that?!"
He places a hand on his head as he points out, "My memory is fine, and you can stop calling me this Kaka whatever! My name is Goku!"
Raditz takes a quick step back. He looks at his brother in shock mixed with anger. "What the hell happened to you?!" A few moments pass, and he grows impatient. His face grows more angry when he thinks of something that could've happened that he feared the most. "Tell me Kakarot, did you suffer any serious injuries to the head when you were a kid?" He doesn't even let a second pass by and he takes a big threatening step forward. "Now, answer me!"
"Yes, I did." Goku finally replies. "But… it was when I was really little. I don't remember anything about it!"
The alien man crosses his arms, feeling pity for his younger brother. "So that's it."
*End of flashback*
"Damn it… how could I have been so blind? My fathers has visions.. my brother has dreams of the past… then I hated my brother so much that he actually hit his head and forgot everything about his kind… damn it! Damn it all!" Raditz's ki surrounds his body from his rising aura. "Nothing ever goes right for this family does it! It's all a tale! My brain-damaged brother knows more than me… curses!" He punches the ground and it leaves a shockwave that shreds grass in a 4 foot radius. "Our race was destroyed and father tried to stop it, only to be killed by Frieza! Mother died from the explosion. Kakarot was sent off to Earth and forgot who he was. Me? I was a joke! Nothing more than a damn joke!" Static crackles through his body as the ground below him powerfully shakes. "Damn it all! My life was nothing more than hell!"
Inside the cave Kakaro hears his brother's ranting. His scouter instantly tries to read the power level. He can't believe what he is seeing on the screen. "20,000… 21,000… 22,000… 24,000-?!" He yelps when the scouter shatters and explodes to a puff of smoke. The device pieces falls to the ground. Kakarot looks out the cave in shock. His brother has never been this strong before.
Vegeta meanwhile was about to start a small spar with the Saiyan halfbreed until his scouter picks up Raditz's reading. "The hell?! 25,000?! No! It's still rising!" Raditz's power level is not a threat compared to his but it is unbelievable that it is climbing. "He couldn't be in that range to reach… the legendary power could he?!"
Karot is in awe. His scouter shatters and he yelps. It hurt a little. He can still sense his uncle's energy. He must be really angry about something. He can feel it.
Raditz is unaware on the intense energy that is traveling up and down his body as static. his mind is still stuck on how much of a failure he is. "Kakarot has surpassed me in strength when a year ago I was twice more powerful than him! Even his son could beat me in rage! Why is it that I am the weak one?! Why?! Kakarot went from being the weakest Saiyan alive to a better warrior that I am! It's not fair dammit!" He stomps the ground and the crater goes a foot deeper. Finally he calms down enough for the sudden rise in power to drop again. He stands there exhausted. What in the world did he do? He frowns and begins to walk away. "So be it! If Kakarot wants some time alone I'll give it to him. I'll just train myself to make sure I will not be looked at as a weakling any longer!"
Kakarot still stares outside as his big brother flies off. He was angry alright, but not at him. More like at himself. It looks as if he has finally realized who is the main problem. "Not fair… it's not fair for any of us."
A/N: Finally finish! I feel very accomplished here today! I was originally going to end the chapter after Goku killed the Namekian elder, then I planned to end it when Vegeta and Goku killed Dodoria, then and idea hit me about Raditz (i remembered on what Simgr101 said about him) and there you had it. You just had a preview of Raditz possibly having the chance of going ssj if he was strong enough and angry enough. I know that Saiyans reach ssj at a certain power and with rage. So i just gave ya'll a little glimpse.
Did any of you read my really important A/N before the beginning of the chapter? if you haven't you should. If you did, review on how you think about the chapter and your title suggestion!
