Amy woke up and stretched her arms and tail. She then rolled over to got back to sleep.
/Wait a second..../ she opened her eyes and saw that she wasn't on the floor, but on the bed.
She sat up and watched as Vegeta did hand-stand push-ups, his back to her. /He must've moved me so he could exercise.../ she thought.
"So where are we going to train?" Nicole asked after she swallowed a mouthful of food.
"Uhhh...How about where we trained yesterday?" Goku asked.
"Ummm...Ok." Nicole got up from the table and walked to the front door with Goku behind her.
Both Goku and Nicole flew to the soccer field. As soon as they landed, Goku got into a fighting stance. Nicole copied Goku and waited for him to begin.
"Are you going to just lie there all day?" Vegeta asked as he flipped into a standing position.
"No," answered Amy. "Are you gonna make me breakfast again?"
"Hn," Vegeta answered and then left the room.
Goku didn't move, so Nicole lunged at him and hit him square in the jaw. "Oh my gawd! Goku are you okay?" Nicole panicked.
Goku just smiled and went to hit her back. Nicole didn't have time to raise a defense, and Goku sent her flying into the air. He then materialized above her and elbowed her in the back. Nicole landed with an audible THUD into the ground.
Goku floated down and landed beside her. "Now, I'll tell you what you did wrong," he said as he helped Nicole up.
"Ok," Nicole said slowly.
"First of all," said Goku. "Your punch wasn't right." He took Nicole's hand. "Your fist should be like this." - he positioned her hand properly -"Now hit me again."
Nicole hit Goku and this time the Saiyan's head snapped back.
"Good one!" Goku said.
Nicole smiled. "Yay!"
"Now," said Goku, becoming serious again. "After you hit me, you should've done it again and not let your guard down."
Nicole listened intently as Goku explained some basic Dragonball Z jui- jitsu. (note: yes! there is such a fighting style! my brother showed me a clip of some dude doing it. i wanna learn it!! and yah, i know that's not what it's called in the show, but i felt like putting it in there.)
Amy pulled on her bathing suit bottoms. "Grrr..." she growled as she forgot about her tail. So she had to take them off, punch a hole through, and then slip them back on, shoving her tail through the new hole.
She then grabbed her towel and went downstairs. She found Vegeta in the kitchen, drinking some water.
"Hey, Vegeta," said Amy as she walked past him to the back room. "I'm gonna go swimming. You can too if you want."
She then left the house and went into the backyard to their pool.
Nicole and Goku were both in mid-air exchanging punches when Goku stopped and Nicole stumbled past him.
"Hey, why did you stop?" Nicole asked, slightly annoyed.
"I'm hungry. Can we eat?" Goku asked as he put a hand behind his head.
"But Goku, you said you would train me!" she whined.
"I just did, and you were doing really good."
Goku nodded in reply. "Now can we go eat?"
"Ummmmm...Ok." Nicole flew off towards the house.
"Race ya home!" Goku yelled as he zoomed by Nicole.
"Hey Goku no fair! You're faster than me!"
When Nicole landed at the front door, Goku was standing there waitng.
"What took you so long?" Goku asked with a grin.
Nicole just growled and gave Goku a shove as she walked by him and into the house.
"Amy?" Nicole called as she wandered around the house. When she walked into the kitchen, she found Goku eating at the table. "Goku, have you seen Amy?"
He just lifted his head and pointed to the back room with one hand, and shoved a hot dog in his mouth with the other.
Nicole walked out the back door and over to the pool. "Hi Amy! I trained with Goku!"
Amy was floating on her back when she looked up at Nicole from the in- ground pool. "What?" she asked.
"I said, Goku trained me!" Nicole replied.
Amy began to head towards Nicole at the edge of the pool, without moving her arms or legs.
"Amy?" Nicole asked. "How are you moving?"
Amy smiled as she stood up and leaned on the edge of the pool. Her tail snaked out of the water and onto the deck. "I used my tail like a propellor," Amy answered.
"Cool! I want a tail too!" Nicole whined. "Where's Vegeta?"
"He's on the roof," Amy said. "He's been up there for a few hours. Almost as long as I've been in the pool.
Nicole looked up at the roof. "I don't see him...." she said.
"That's because he doesn't want to be seen," Amy said as she flew out of the pool to hover a few feet above the water.
"Oh," said Nicole. "Then how do you know he's there?"
"I can see him," Amy answered as she began to spin rapidly, spraying water at Nicole.
"Ew, Amy! You got me wet!" Nicole yelled.
Amy just laughed and flew up to touch down on the roof.
Nicole walked back into the kitchen where Goku was still eating. "Hey Goku, wanna go swimming?"
"Ok!" Goku stood up from the table with hands still full of food.
"Alright. I'm going to get my bathing suit on. Be right back!" she yelled as she ran up the stairs, then came back a few minutes later with a black, one-piece suit and a white towel slung over one shoulder. "Oh and Goku," Nicole stopped just before they got to the door. "Keep your shorts on."
Nicole ran out to the pool, dropping her towel on the ground, she dove into the cool water and came up for air just as Goku was jumping in.
"Goku watch out!" Nicole yelled, making Goku land in the water in an awkward position so he wouldn't land on top of her.
When he came up for air, Nicole splashed him then started laughing when Goku made a Goku face.
"Hey, Goku, wanna see who can hold their breath underwater the longest?" Nicole asked with a grin.
"Ok!" Goku replied.
"Alright......One....Two.......Three!" Both Nicole and Goku took a deep breath and went under the water.
Under the water, Goku reached out and started tickling Nicole. Nicole let out some of her breath, but she managed to hold it in. She then started to tickle him.
Goku, not expecting her to retaliate, let out all of his air and struggled to the surface. Nicole resurfaced also.
"So," she said. "What do I win?"
"Uhhh...another training session?"
Nicole thought for a moment. "How about teaching me the kamehameha? Or just how to blow stuff up like Amy and Vegeta can?"
"Come on Goku, I won and I want to choose what I learn since you suggested training me."
"Can we go and eat?" Goku asked.
"Is your stomach all you can think about?" Nicole asked as her stomach growled and remembered she didn't have anything to eat since breakfast. "Ok, but after we eat, we get ready for the formal."
Amy stood on the roof with Vegeta. "How come you were watching me?" Amy asked.
Vegeta had his back to her, not turning around so she wouldn't see his blush, or notice that blood had rushed somewhere else other than his cheeks. "I wasn't watching you. I was meditating." Well, it was a half- truth. He *had* been meditating, until his eyes wandered poolside....
He saw as her beautilful form swam from one end of the pool to the other, her long limbs moving in and out of the water; she was utilizing her new appendage well, as Vegeta noticed.
"Oh," Amy said, unbelievingly. "Will you teach me how to meditate too?"
Amy's words snapped Vegeta out of his remeberings. "Fine. But not today."
"Alright. You wanna get something to eat?" Amy asked as she made ready to fly down to the ground.
Amy took that as a "yes" and went in the back door.
Nicole and Goku were stuffing their faces when Amy walked into the kitchen.
"Hey Amy, want some?" Nicole asked through a mouthful of rice.
Amy went and got her left-over chinese food. "I have my own food," Amy replied as she picked out what she wanted to eat.
When they were finished Nicole ran to the shower before anyone else could get there. Goku tried to follow, but Nicole had already locked the door. He frowned and went upstairs to get a change of clothes.
Nicole walked into her room wearing nothing but a towel and her hair dripping wet. Goku was already in there wearing boxers with a navy blue t- shirt slung over his shoulder.
"Goku!" Nicole exclaimed. "Hurry up and take a shower! We're leaving in half an hour!"
"Where are we going?" Goku asked.
Amy and Vegeta looked up at Nicole's scream. Vegeta had left the roof and came in shortly after Amy.
"Anyway," Amy said, turning back to Vegeta. "We'll lure Moloney (note: mr. moloney is a dumbass teacher that me and my friends despise. he made my grade 8 year hell, and now i get to pay him back in this fic ^_^! you know, until i can put my *real* plan into action....oh, no, i've said too much.....) outside towards the portables, and then I'll......play......with him."
Goku then came came running into the kitchen, a naked blur, boxers in one hand and towel in the other, and into the bathroom.
"Well, I'd better get changed," said Amy, rising from the table. "Are you going like that?"
"I suppose I won't be needing my armour," said Vegeta.
Goku emerged from the shower and gasped. Nicole was standing beside the tub holding Goku's tux. She was wearing her new dress with an arm bracelet on her left arm. She had on a choker. On her feet she wore black shoes. "Hurry and get dry and dressed Goku!" Nicole said. "We should've left already!"
"Uh, gee, sorry Nicole," Goku said. He then powered up to dry off. "So, uh, are you gonna help me get dressed?" asked Goku.
Nicole sighed and started dressing Goku.
Amy was upstairs lacing up her black boots when Vegeta walked into the bedroom. He tossed his armour onto the floor with a THUD.
"Are you gonna leave your gloves on?" Amy asked without looking up. She then stood up and stretched, her arms above her head, and her tail straight out.
"Ye-" Vegeta stopped mid-word as he took in the sight before him.
Her thick Saiyan hair was pulled up into two odangos, with the tails still reaching to halfway down her back; her eyes were lined in silver, with gold shadowing them; her lips were painted a deep red -- almost the colour of blood. Around her neck she wore a black choker with a blood-red ornament dangling from it. She wore the black pants-suit she bought the day before. It was tight, made of spandex and polyester, with flared bottoms. The sleeves were short, clinging to her shoulders, but her arms were covered from her biceps to her wrists by black gauntlets. The front was laced up, the tight material hugging her waist and breasts.
"Pardon?" Amy asked.
Vegeta blinked and closed his mouth which had been hanging open. "I think I will leave them," he answered, slipping off his gloves. He wanted to be able to feel Amy's skin without any barriers.
"Really?" Amy asked. "I never thought you'd go anywhere without your gloves. Anyway," she said as she spun around to show Vegeta her outfit, "What do you think?"
"Uh....it's..." Vegeta stumbled over his words. "It will do."
Amy smiled at the Prince as she walked by him. "Thanks."
Vegeta sighed and followed her downstairs.
Goku and Nicole emerged from the bathroom. He looked stunning in his black tux which showed off his well-toned body. Amy and Vegeta came into the kitchen.
"Ready?" Amy asked.
Nicole nodded and then hopped up into Goku's arms. "Let's fly!"
