Goku flew into sight of his house and set down easily on one foot, shifting to the other a few seconds after landing.
"Chi Chi-san?" he called hesitantly. He pushed the door open and slowly walked in. The house was like it always was; neat, clean. Nothing unusual. He walked into their bedroom and looked around. It was empty. The bed was made, and it had been dusted recently, but still, no Chi Chi. He frowned. This wasn't like her, she was almost always home. Maybe she went out for groceries, he thought. This was pointless. He sighed sitting down on the bed. Who was he fooling? Tears began to form in his eyes, and he quickly wiped them away. He spotted Goten's CD player in the corner of the room and went over to it, keeling down and pressing the power button. Maybe some music would help. The CD that was in it spun to life and a song began to play.
"Mirror, mirror, lie to me... show me what I wanna see..." a girl began to sing.
The tears that he has suppressed came back and started to trickle down his cheeks. He turned off the CD before the song could continue to play and angrily swiped at the tears on his face. He had never been unfaithful to Chi Chi, so who was he to assume that she had been unfaithful to him? But then what was going on? The headache that he had earlier chose that moment to return to life, and he pressed his hands to his temples.
"Why?" he whispered. He leaned back and fell asleep.
Goku awoke several hours later and blinked sleepily. He yawned, stretched, then pushed himself to his feet wondering how he had gotten there. Then the recent events played back in his head and he sighed. Goku hung his head and ran a hand through his hair, making his way to the kitchen. Chi Chi still wasn't around and he mused, where could she be?
All of a sudden, he heard a scraping at the window and he moved to look through it. A head of dirty blond hair popped through the window. As the head came into view, Goku could see that it was a young boy around 20. His eyes were brown and he was wearing a blue denim jacket.
"Ahhh!!!!" Goku screamed and fell over backwards in surprise.
"Sorry," The head said. "I thought that this was the Dawson's Creek set." (in case you haven't figured out who the head is yet, it's Dawson from Dawson's Creek!)
Dawson disappeared from sight and Goku scrambled to his feet. He stuck his head through the window but when he did, all he saw was the front yard. He scratched his head. Goku pulled his head back through the window a bit too fast and bumped it on the upper sill.
"Ouch!" He yelped, hopping around clutching his head. What the hell was happening? He decided not to get something to eat and headed for the front door. Just as he was about to open it a door of blue light opened vertically in the open space behind him. Goku froze then turned around slowly to see a short man holding what looked like a mini computer. He was wearing a leather jacket and blue jeans, he was also smoking a cigar.
"Who... who are you?" he stammered looking at the strange apparition in his living room.
"What? You can see me?" The man's jaw dropped.
"Well, yes! Why? I'm not supposed to?" Goku's voice began to get a hysterical edge to it.
"No, no, calm down, take deep breaths. Let me consult Ziggy on this." He began to punch the buttons on the device he was holding.
"Yeah, the computer."
"Yeah, can you stop talking for a while?" he sounded annoyed.
Goku wisely stopped talking. The front door opened and Chi Chi walked in looking a bit rumpled. Her hair wasn't in the bun she usually put it in. She was sporting a white headband, letting her long, straight black hair fall to her slim waist. Her hair looked like it had been soaked with water or sweat, and quickly dried with a towel.
"Goku? What are you doing back here so soon?" she asked, looking surprised to see him.
"I was tired." Goku answered quickly.
"Well, as long as you didn't make a mess..." her voice trailed off menacingly, narrowing her dark eyes.
"I didn't, Chi Chi-san, alright?" Goku replied annoyed.
"Um... excuse me, sir?" The man broke in.
"Yes?" Goku turned back to him.
"Well, I think I know what happened. One question. Are you Sam?"
"Sam? Sam who?"
"Never mind. Anyway there seems to be a time disturbance, something is mixing alternate realities, or we could say different timelines. And that something has pulled me out of my timeline and possibly my friend Sam too. Ziggy says that there is a 93% chance that I'm supposed to ask for your help to find Sam and then try to find what is causing the disturbance. The question is, will you help?"
"Well, sure. That's usually what I do, it's nothing new for me. So how am I supposed to find him?"
"Goku? Who are you talking to?" Chi Chi interjected angrily, her hands an her hips.
"I don't know!" Goku shot back as he turned to the short man. "What is your name anyway!?"
"My name's Al." The short man responded as he punched in a few more buttons.
Chi Chi eyed Goku as if he had suddenly grown a tail and horns.
"He says his name is Al." Goku said throwing a questioning look at Chi Chi, almost as if he was expecting an answer from her.
"Al." Chi Chi repeated.
"Yes, he says his name is Al."
"Right." Chi Chi said as she took a few steps forward and felt his forehead.
'He must have had a nervous breakdown.' She thought as she spoke aloud, "Are you feeling okay?"
"Chi Chi! I'm not sick!!" He cried and pulled away from her hand.
Al looked up from his multicolored minicomputer.
"What did you say your name was again?" Al asked Goku.
"My name's Goku!" He yelled.
"I know that!" Chi Chi snapped as her face flushed pink.
"Goku....." Al repeated slowly. He returned his attention to punching buttons.
"Look Goku, what exactly is this about?!" Chi Chi screamed.
"I don't know! Why don't you tell me?!" He screamed back as loud as her.
"HOW DARE YOU RAISE YOUR VOICE TO ME?!" She screamed, nearly making the house shake.
"You think you could shut her up?" Al yelled.
"No." Goku exclaimed angrily.
"EXCUSE ME?!" Chi Chi's face was starting to turn red.
"SHUT UP DAMMIT!" Goku screamed.
Chi Chi took a step back in shock. Her mouth dropped open in surprise.
"I'VE HAD IT WITH YOU!!!!" YOU ARE ALWAYS YELLING AT ME! AND I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE! YOU NEVER THINK ABOUT ANYONE EXCEPT YOURSELF AND YOU ARE ALWAYS TELLING ME TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!!!! WHY IS THAT??? ARE YOU HAVING AN AFFAIR?!" He screamed at the top of his lungs.
Al looked up from his mini-comp. The last few words out of Goku's mouth seemed to spark his interest in their conversation. He grabbed a bag of pop corn as he pulled up a chair. He looked from Goku to Chi Chi, as if it was a soap opera.
"I...I....." She stuttered. She couldn't believe that her sweet, innocent Goku was capable of yelling back at her, much less curse at her. She did the only thing she was capable of doing at the moment. She broke down crying.
Al look slightly amused at her Oscar winning performance as he munched a handful of popcorn.
"Waaah!! *sniff* *sniff* "I-I *choke* tr-tried to be a- *sniff* a good wife *choke* an-and mother!" She sobbed.
"HA!" Al blurted out as he suddenly threw some pop corn at her, as if she was a T.V. screen. The pop corn sailed right through her, however since they were in separate dimensions.
Goku glared at Al as he stepped forward and tried to comfort Chi Chi half-heartedly.
"Chi Chi, I... I'm sorry, but I need to know."
She looked up at him in surprise. Her tear streaked face looked frightened as she tried to speak.
"Wha.....What makes you think that I would ever cheat on you?" Her voice was barely above a whisper. A drastic change from a few moments ago.
Al snorted at her attempt to pull the wool over Goku's eyes.
"Aw come on Chi Chi! Do you really think I'm THAT stupid?"
"Yeah!" Al yelled as he cheered on Goku.
Goku's hands balled into fists. He closed his eyes and thought to himself, 'Don't kill Al, don't kill Al, don't kill Al...'
Chi Chi stared at him in amazement. Her small hand closed into a fist and went to her throat in shock.
"I... it wasn't... I didn't... mean... to... I... I... Yes..." She finally admitted. She looked down and closed her eyes, almost feeling guilty after deceiving him for so long.
Goku's legs felt weak. He felt sick knowing his fears were confirmed. He could barely stand after the impact of that one word... Yes... (Yes, oh beloved fans... Chi Chi HAS in fact been CHEATING... -_- damn biotch. >_< but with whom?)
" *sniff*..." "That was... beautiful..." Al sobbed as he searched for a tissue.
It took all of Goku's self restraint to keep himself from strangling Al.
"Who is he Chi Chi?" He asked, his voice breaking as he was close to tears. He couldn't bring himself to call her Chi Chi-san anymore. Not after she had betrayed his trust. Not after what she had done.
Al blew his nose loudly from across the room.
Goku ignored him as he waited for her response.
"Go... Goku... There... wasn't... I mean... there ISN'T another man..." She kept her eyes averted from Goku's. She couldn't bear to see the disgust she knew was there.
Goku gasped as it hit him. He gaped at her and felt tears streak down his face.
"Oh wow..." Al said. "She's... she's a... a... wow..." He tried to say as he stared at her.
Goku forgot about Al sitting there, watching him cry. The thoughts that were running through his mind... How could she? Hadn't he always been there for her? Ok, sure he had died a few times, but he still loved her! He had never cheated on her! Why would she? Why couldn't she feel the same way as him?
"Goku... I wish I could say I was sorry. But I'm not." She stated. "I... I'm happy this way."
Goku shook his head. No. He wouldn't believe it. He couldn't believe it!
"Why?" His voice barely audible.
"You STILL don't understand, do you?"
"No. No I don't understand! You don't get it, do you! I love you! How could you do this to me?"
"Its very simple, Goku. Let me spell it out for you. I. Don't. Love. You."
He stared at her in horror. "Then why the hell did you marry me? Was all the time we have been married just one big joke to you? Is that it?" He sobbed as the tears streamed down his already wet face.
"The only reason I married you was because at the time, I thought I was in love with you. But now I see I wasn't. I see now that marrying you was the worst mistake of my life!"
"No... No!" He shook his head violently. 'This HAS to be some horrible nightmare!' He thought hysterically. 'THIS. ISN'T. REAL...' He squeezed his eyes shut, hoping that when he looked up again, it would all be gone. Everything would be the way it used to be. He opened his eyes hesitantly. "No." He said aloud as he saw that it was, in fact, quite real. He reached his hand up to cover his eyes as he began to sob again.
"Well look at the big, strong Mr. Super-Saiya-Jin, crying like a little boy." Chi Chi taunted.
Goku was sickened by her. He couldn't stand being near her anymore. This was his worst nightmare. And the most terrible fact about it, was that it was real. His thoughts raced wildly to their wedding night, to when Gohan had been born, to the day when they had named him, to the time Gohan had nearly died because of his own carelessness. Because he had failed to keep his hand on the carriage, failed to rescue him, failed to keep Raditz from kidnapping Gohan, failed to be there for him through most of the fight when Vejita had come to Earth. Failed to defeat Cell. Failing... he was always failing! Failed to be a father to Gohan through out his entire life. Failed to be a good father to Goten, and now since he hadn't been a good father to his first born son, Gohan was neglecting Pan. Just like he had neglected him. He seemed to fail at everything. 'If only things had been different...' All of this passed through his mind in an instant. He turned away from her, unable to so much as look at her anymore.
"Just say it."
"Fine. I don't love you, I don't even care about you!"
"No! That's not it!"
"Well what exactly do you WANT me to say? That I'm gay? That I find women attractive? That I can't stand the thought of being your wife?" She started to scream again.
Al nearly choked on his beer from across the room as he fell off his chair and landed on the floor with a thud.
"Alright. I'll go." Goku whispered as he turned towards his bedroom.
"No Goku you can't leave! Your supposed to keep your marriage from falling apart or Sam will never get home!" Al yelled.
Goku ignored him as he went to gather his belongings. They hadn't even shared a bedroom even when he had thought she cared about him.
Chi Chi frowned as she crossed her arms. She glared at Goku with intense hatred.
Al just stared at her. He couldn't believe that someone could be as cold and heartless as her. Screaming one moment, crying for sympathy the next.
"Boy, what a whack job..." Al muttered under his breath as he followed Goku.
"Goku, come on! You have to keep her from marrying Bulma!" Al said in a very annoying manner.
"BULMA?" Goku screamed as he dropped his suitcase and fell over. "SHE'S BEEN HAVING SEX WITH BULMA!?" He screamed stricken with horror.
"Who...who told you that?" She gasped.
"Al told you I've been cheating with Bulma?" She repeated in disbelief.
Al just grabbed his pop corn again and folded his arms.
"How could you?! I fucking trusted you!"
Chi Chi could only gape at him. 'Is Al a ghost? Or did Goku make up a story because he was spying on me... How did he know? I thought he wasn't capable of intelligent thought...' Which was one of the reasons she had married him.
Goku picked himself up and his suitcase as well.
"Good bye Chi Chi." He put two fingers on his temple and teleported out of her house.
Al punched in a few buttons to his minicomputer and disappeared as he followed Goku to wherever he was going.
