Rating: None Yet
Tien took off his weighted jacket and shirt and threw them on the ground. Goku did the same with his shirt. They flew towards each other at blinding speed. All Gohan and Tracy could see was Goku flying towards the Earth and then the huge explosion he made as his body came crashing into the hard dirt. Goku got up, brushed himself off, smiled and then cupped his hands behind him. He yelled “Kame...Hame..HA!!!”. Gohan yelled “NOOOOO!! GOKU!!!!” just as the gargantuan blue energy blast was released. Tien just stared at the approaching energy wave in disbelief. Tien barely dodged it. Goku chuckled and said, “There’s more where that came from.” and then started forming another energy beam. Tien then thought to himself, I don’t think I can dodge another one of these attacks. Maybe if I...He then disappeared and then reappeared behind Goku and then kicked him in the middle of the back. Gohan told them to stop their fight immediately. He picked up Goku and carried him into the house. Tracy ran to Tien and hugged him and then exclaimed, “That was wonderful! I thought you were going to die When Goku shot that big blue beam at you. I was proved wrong though!” Tien, surprised at the sudden showing of affection from Tracy, blushed and said “Thanks.” Then he went to Gohan and saw that Goku was OK, after that he asked, “When will I learn to shoot beams and that kind of stuff?” Gohan looked tired and said “Tomorrow you will go with Goku to train with Master Roshi to learn how to control your powers and ki. Tien and Goku were flying to Master Roshi’s when they saw an old man that had gotten his right leg smashed underneath of a tree. They stopped and helped the him. Tien lifted the tree up off of the ground while Goku pulled the man out from underneath of it. The old man was very grateful to the two young men for saving his life. It turns out that this man was extremely rich and gave Goku and Tien 1,000 dollars each! The two boys were extremely surprised by this gift and said that he didn’t have to give them anything but the Old man insisted on it. Tien and Goku said thank you and flew away. They got to the island a little late so Master Roshi made them run 500 laps around the island. The running wasn’t bad but that little bald-headed boy kept laughing at them. Tien and Goku finally finished their laps and walked over to where the bald kid was standing with Master Roshi. “Well Goku,” said Roshi, “Who’s your friend?”. Goku smiled and said, “ This is Tien, He is very strong for someone who has only trained for about a week. Actually, he’s very strong, period.” Tien smiled and asked, “Hi Master Roshi, who’s the bald kid?”. Tien looked at the short boy while Master Roshi said, “His name is Krillin.” Krillin chuckled and said, “You don’t look so strong to me!”. It was Tien’s turn to laugh so he did and said “Krillin, could you hold these a second?”. He took off his weighted shirt and jacket and threw them to the short, balding boy. Krillin caught the clothes but didn’t stop them. He flew back with the force of the heavy clothes. After skidding for a few yards, he fell with a crash. “Help me!” he gasped, “I can’t breathe!”. Tien walked over, picked the clothes up off of Krillin and put them back on. “You wanna test me again?” said Tien as Master Roshi just stood there with his mouth gaping. Tien broke the silence by asking, “Are you going to train me or what?”. Master Roshi nodded and began teaching Tien and Goku to control the Kamehameha wave. They continued to learn moves for a few more years. Tien and Goku learned techniques such as the Masenko, Destructo Disk, Dodonpa, and Solar Flare. They also learned how to detect powerlevels.
