Dekiru Dake

I stood in awe just staring up at Pan on the swing, momentarily in my own mind, it was just me and her in the room. I couldnít help it. I knew I had slowly begun to search my feelings after seeing her and Marron rehearse one of their distraction routines. It was like a little musical number and the clothes, well they were a little bit more covered than the ones at this place. But now, after that first sighting Iíd just called it off as lust and I would not lust after my best friends cousin. She was family... But something was odd, my heart was doing something itíd never done to me before. I think it was telling me I was ready and there was no turning back. This thing is NOT lust I know that now. Especially after the moment in the hallway. I guess I knew it all along... but I was so blind, so stupid, so unprepared for this... thing... thing Iím going to say it even though Iíve never said it before... Iím in love. Strange how a thing could sneak up on a person so unsuspecting. Iíve known Pan her entire life, and here she was eighteen and beautiful sitting on a swing hanging from the roof of a brothel wearing a dress making every guy in the room drool. Kami it was making me drool, I just hoped no one noticed. I musta looked so stupid... heh thatís me stupid Trunks...

So there she was, sitting high on her perch center of everyoneís attention, everyone looking and loving her, admiring her, a Goddess in her own rite. Amazing, I decided I was going to have to talk to her after this, I couldnít NOT talk to her, she was my friend. Did she see me as more. I never paid that much attention. How stupid of me. I swear Iím as daft as Goku sometimes, yet Iím the son of genus. I can hack in to a mainframe computer, stop bullets with a finger and beat the crap out bad guys... well most bad guys, yet I couldnít even remember if my second best friend had made any hint towards liking me. And Iím rambling again. I tend to do that when I think back on this situation... Kami what is wrong with me. Iím having a weak moment. Father would throw me in the gravitron and train me for three weeks straight if he knew. Emotions are a weakness... then if they are I must of been the weakest person in the room at that moment. Because when she sang she looked at me. Those eyes damnit I felt they were looking directly in to mine and her voice, she was singing... and I felt as if she was singing... just to me.

I crumbled inside, my heart ached and I longed, that longing thing, I never felt that before, I was suddenly aware of every man in the room staring at her like she was nothing more than a piece of meat and she flaunted it. Boy did she flaunt it. I donít remember much after that except Goten grabbing me and dragging me off he must of felt my ki rise as I was prepared to blast every guy in the room for even looking in her direction. She must of felt it too because when she watched me being pulled off she just smiled and I will remember that smile... till the day I die...
