Chapter 9: Fallout

Begeta punched Frieza but he blocked it. He started hitting Frieza with a series of kicks, punches and energy blasts. Frieza just stood defensively. He never cancelled out the attacks. Begeta said “Fight me seriously.  If you continue to do this, you will die eventually”. Frieza said “You’re my child. I have raised you. I will not kill you. I had lost hope before but your brother hasn’t. For him, I wont harm you”. Begeta said “Fine!!! Fool die” Begeta raised his power level and unleashed a massive energy blast and screamed “Death Beam”. Gohan said “Move Frieza. It might not kill you but it will injure you alot”. Goku said “Stop Gohan. He knows what he is doing. This is not just a random fight anymore for him. It is a way bring his son home” Frieza took the blast. He stood there for a few seconds and then fell on his knees. Begeta said “Now this is the end for you Frieza”. Frieza smiled and said “It is time to finally atone for my sins. I would rather have you deliver the punishment. You will always be my son. Just promise me one thing. Take care of your brother”. Frieza then removed the bracelet from his hand and said “Here, Cooler wanted to give you this”. Begeta was stunned. He never witnessed so much of love from anyone. He remembered his childhood days. Training sessions with his brother, the kindness of his father, his teachings. He started crying and screamed “Damn it!!! I can’t do this!!! I cant kill my family”. Everyone was happy but it was short lived. The very next second, there was large hole in Begeta’s chest. Kakarotto had fired an energy blast right through Begeta and he muttered pathetic. Begeta fell to the ground with the bracelet in his hand which was covered in blood now. Frieza screamed “NOOOO!!! BEGETA”. Begeta said with tears in his eyes “I… am… sor.. sorry for the trouble… I…. caused. Plea…. please… te…. tell Cooler thank you for the bracelet. Thank you for everything”. With these final words, Begeta died. Frieza was crying and screamed “I wont forgive you Kakarotto. You attacked him from behind”. Kakarotto said with an evil grin “Oh dont worry Frieza. You will join him soon” After saying this Kakarotto fired an energy blast at him. But it was deflected by Goku and he said in anger “You are just evil. Killing your own friends and innocent people. I will stop you” and he charged towards Kakarotto.

Kakarotto also charged towards him. Both of them clashed and created a blast wave of energy. Each punch was parried. The energy blasts were either deflected or were cancelled by their own energy blasts. Kakarotto said “You are a joke. You’re so naive. I never thought I could ever be like you”. Goku replied “At least we feel the same way about each other”. Kakarotto said “You are so stupid. Your mistake proved fatal for your best friend. You killed so many innocent people. YOU ARE A MURDERER!!!” Goku screamed in anger and charged towards him. Kakarotto smirked and said “You’re full of openings. I have you now”. He said “Ka. Me. Ha. Me. Haaaa”. A navy blue beam was unleashed. It was going towards Goku and it hit him. Gohan screamed “Father!!!!”. But Goku was pushing through the beam. He was driven by his anger. Kakarotto was shocked. He then raced towards Goku to punch him. He punched Goku in his face. Even though Goku was injured, it seemed the punch didn’t faze him. Goku then kicked Kakarotto in his guts. Kakarotto put his hands on his stomach and fell on his knees and coughed alot. Goku said “Now you will see the worst side of me”. There was a feeling of eerie. There was a cold wind blowing. Kakarotto said “You will not beat me. I have restricted your power”. He then flew away and started firing energy blasts. Goku deflected them and then flew towards him. Both engaged in hand to hand combat. Goku was slowly overpowering him. Kakarotto thought to himself “What is happening?? Why is his power level still increasing??!!” Goku said “You still haven’t figured how we are raising our power levels right? I will tell you. Your medicine does work but if we increase our metabolism, the effects start waring off. I realised it first when I found with Vegeta”. Hearing this Kakarotto was scared. He knew he would lose the battle. He decided to play dirty. He started shooting energy blasts everywhere. His targets were Goku’s friends.  Goten, Trunks, Piccolo, Gohan, Vegeta and Frieza. Gohan and Vegeta were able to protect their injured and unconscious friends but in doing so were hit by energy blasts. This pissed off Goku. He screamed “Now you die!!!” Now Goku started hitting Kakarotto with all his might. He punched him several times. Kakarotto fell to the ground and he said “Hahahah. You are a killer Goku. He may lose here but at least I destroyed your morale code”. Goku still kept punching him “You are evil. You harmed Krillin. You made me kill all those innocent soldiers. I will kill you”. Each punch made Goku’s fist much more red. Kakarotto was totally bloodied up. Gohan screamed “Enough Father!!! You will kill him”. Goku wasnt listening. Then as he was about to throw another punch, his arm was held back by someone. It was Vegeta. He said “Kakarot, enough of this. Stop. Killing him wont bring back those soldiers back. You have to move on. Dont become a murderer in front of your children”. Goku suddenly had an epiphany. Vegeta was right. This wasnt his fault. Tears started flowing out of his eyes. He felt a huge burden was lifted off him. Frieza then limped towards Kakarotto and said “We have won, you worm”.

Few days later, all of the Z-fighters were with Frieza. All were healthy and fine. Even Frieza had recovered. Goku asked “Are you sure they wont cause anymore trouble?” Frieza said “Yes, I am sure. Based on the drugs inside your bodies, we were able to reverse engineer the drugs and make them better. These drugs will keep their power levels to a minimum”. Goten said “That sounds good”. Trunks said “I am happy that you gave Begeta a proper burial. He seemed like a nice guy, just a wrong group of friends”. Gohan asked “Frieza, will you will be ok?” Frieza replied, while looking at Goku, “I think i will be fine. Some wounds take a little longer to heal”. Vegeta said “We should get going. Bulma must be getting worried”. Frieza said “It is good thing. We destroyed all of the blue prints of this technology. I would request you to do the same after you reach home” Piccolo said “Yes, we will do that”. Krillin said “Thank you for your help. Farewell”. The Z-fighters then transported to their original dimension. When they got out of the space ship, they saw 2 bulmas. One was older than the other. Krillin said “I think the side effects have kicked in. I can see 2 Bulmas”. Goku gasped “You arent the only one”. Trunks said “We still aren’t in our original dimension. Let us go fast before anything bad happens”. The younger Bulma screamed “Hey!! Wait!! You are in the correct dimension. This is me from the future. Trunks brought her here. After you all left. The original Trunks came. He told that he hadnt come here in a long time. So i realised that an impostor took you all. I then asked him to bring me from the future so that we could work on the technology together and that we could rescue you”. The Z-fighters then told them the entire story. Future Bulma said “Me and Goku???? That is a crazy universe” Future Trunks said “You guys had a tough time it seems. Good that you are all well. We should get back mother”. Future Bulma said “Yes, yes. I know you have a date. Let us go. Bye everyone”. Goten said “I guess, somethings dont change”. The future versions left in their time machine. Gohan said “We should get home. Mom and videl must be worried sick”.  Krillin also panicked and said “18 will clobber me”. All of them flew off to their homes to tell the incredible story about the alternate universe.
