Chapter 01
The bright morning sunlight streamed in though the window and played on the white sheets covering the lumpy bed. The man in it yawned then turned over and blinked. He sat up and stretched almost falling off of the bed.

"Goku!!!" A voice called up from the floor below. "Are you awake yet? Breakfast is ready!!!"

"Just a minute, Chi Chi-san!" Goku called back down then wearily climbed out of the bed. He had been feeling very tired lately for some unknown reason, unexpected dizzy spells coming at times. He hadn't told his wife; he didn't want to worry her. Also then she would start screaming at him about how she was such a poor wife and mother then haul him off to see a doctor. He walked over to the wash stand that was near the bed and splashed some water on his face, then dried it on a nearby towel. Glancing out the window he realized the time of day, and hastily pulled on a clean gi and ran down the stairs.

Chi Chi looked up from the sink where she was doing some dishes. The boys must have eaten already, he realized.

"Goku! It's about time that you're up!!!!" She said turning to face him, her hands on her hips.

"Gomen nasai, Chi Chi-san, I was... tired." He said quickly, trying to stop her rant that he knew was coming on.

"Goku, what is wrong? Aren't I a good wife? Why can't you behave like a normal man?!" she started screaming. "You never get up early anymore, all you do is train with that no account bum, Vegjita, and you never have any time for me anymore!!!!! All you do is eat, sleep, and fight! Why can't you take me somewhere for a change!"

"Chi Chi-san? Do you want to go on a vacation?" Goku asked timidly.

"Yes! But guess what.. WE DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY!!!" She screamed in his face.

Goku winced then quickly spoke before she could get in another word.

"Chi Chi-san, I do have a little money. I've been saving it for a while because I thought that you worked so hard that you must be tired and fed up."

"Goku? WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?!!!" she screamed. Goku fell over.

"It was supposed to be a surprise for your birthday!!" He screamed back at her.

Chi Chi smiled. "That is great Goku! I'll start packing after you start training."

"But I thought that you didn't like me training with Vejita?" Goku asked confused.

"JUST GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!!!" she screamed so loud that the whole world must have heard. Goku didn't need to be told twice. He opened the front door to the house and closed it softly before turning and jumping into the sky. He flew the short distance to the training ground where he usually sparred with Vegjita and landed softly.

"Vejita?" He called.

"Over here, Kakarott." came the gruff reply.

Goku walked over to where Vejita was standing, looking at an object in his hand.

"What do you have there, Vejita?" Goku looked over his shoulder, a wide eyed expression on his face. Vejita closed his fist quickly, startled. He turned with a snarl on his face, and what could have been tears in his eyes.

"Kakarott! Can't you learn some manners?" He snapped. All trace of tears vanished as his cold mask dropped into place.

Goku got a hurt look on his face. "Vejita?"

"Well are we going to spar or what?" he walked across the clearing and waited his back to Goku. Goku looked down, confused. Why was everybody mad at him? First Chi Chi, now Vejita. What was he doing wrong? Tears welled up in his eyes.

"I'm sorry Vejita, I can't spar today. I don't feel well."

Vejita turned around as he heard the break in Goku's voice. "Kakarott..."

Goku turned and teleported, appearing at the Capsule Corp in a lab where Bulma was working.

"Goku!?" Bulma started then saw his face. "What's wrong?"

"I need the Dragon-rader Bulma-chan. Can I please borrow it?"

"Umm... sure." Bulma rummaged through a drawer and pulled out the compact device. "I've upgraded it a bit since the last time that you used it. You'll be able to track the balls much faster and the coordinates are easier to read. I know how hard it was for you to read them before. What are you planning to do?"

"Nothing much." He quickly took the radar and teleported back outside the Capsule Corp before she could ask another question. He was tired of being treated like he was stupid by everyone, tired of not being perfect, tired of forgetting everything that was important to everyone around him. He didn't want to feel stupid anymore and he wasn't going to let anyone talk him out of it.

He started flying and soon reached a desert and hid his ki. He sat down trying to think. He had to get the dragonballs and he had to do it without anyone noticing. It finally hit him after a half hour. Small jumps of teleportation to just about where the dragonball was and then quickly hide his ki again. He got up and turned on the radar. A large display popped up on the flat, green screen mapping out the dragonballs' locations. He proceeded to retrieve them one by one. Finally he had all seven.

He spread them out in front of him, making sure that each one was touching the other. He stepped back as they began to glow with a bright light.

"Arise Shen-long!!!" He cried to the sky that had darkened with the dragonball's power. The Dragon answered his summons, spiraling up into the sky.

"I will grant you one wish. Speak. Name your request." Shen-long said in a gravely voice.

Goku looked at him trying to think of how to phrase his request.

"I wish that I wasn't dumb, that I was as smart as I was supposed to be before I fell and hit my head as a child."

"It shall be done." Shen-long's eyes glowed red as a bright flash of light surrounded Goku, healing the damage that had been done and restoring his true intelligence. As quickly as it had come, the light receded and Shen-long departed.

"Your wish had been granted. Farewell." The dragonballs streaked through the sky settling across the world, useless for the next year.

Goku blinked his head hurting from the ordeal that he had just put himself through.

"I can't believe it." He brought a hand up to his forehead and touched it. He didn't feel any different than for the headache that he had acquired. "Did it work? It must have, Shen-long said so." He blinked then sat down on a nearby rock. "I should return the dragon-radar to Bulma-chan. I hope..." he sighed. He buried his head in his hands. "I just hope that they'll like me better now that I'm not just a dumb fighter. But what if they don't? Should I tell them?"

He got up off the rock and took off into to sky, flying slowly. After he had been flying for an hour he flew over a small town that was surrounded by a large forest, roads making little lines that extended in different directions. It looked so peaceful. He decided to stop and walk around for a while. He landed a few miles outside the town and started slowly walking on the road leading to it, needing a little time to think. A short while later, a car rumbled by him and he looked up. A little old woman was sitting in the driver's seat and there was a bunch of fruit and vegetables in boxes in the back seat. She looked over at him and he smiled at her.

"Where you going, sonny?" she asked, smiling back.

"Into the town," he answered.

"That's where I'm heading. Do you want a ride?" she said patting the seat next to her.

"Um, sure."

He climbed into the seat and fifteen minutes later was in the town's square, where people were setting up stalls and booths along each side.

"Well, here we are. I've got to set up my shop before the festival. You take care now."

"Wait!" Goku exclaimed. "Can I help an any way? To repay you for the ride."

"Oh, think nothing of it. It was my pleasure."

"But I really want to help." he begged.

"Well, if you really want to, I do need someone to help me unload the fruit and vegetables."

"Great! Where do you want me to put the them?"

"Just follow me." She parked the car and turned of the ignition, after which she pointed to a small booth in the corner of the square nearest to them. A small booth was standing there, in much need of repair.

"I think that it needs to be fixed before you can use it." Goku remarked to the old lady.

"I know," she sighed. "But I can't pay anyone to fix it. I don't have the money."

Goku frowned and poked it. It fell into a bunch of old boards.

"Ah! Now what?" she exclaimed. "I won't be able to sell anything! How am I supposed to sell anything now?"

"Don't worry, I'll fix it." Goku said quietly, then went back to the car and brought back the boxes that had the vegetables and fruit in them.

"Now, let's see." He looked at the wood in front of him then at a nearby booth, quickly examining the frame and structure. He made a few modifications in his mind, giving no thought to the process, and set to putting the booth in front of him back together welding the wood with his ki. He finished and looked at his handiwork.

"What do you think?" he asked the little woman who had come to stand behind him.

She looked at his creation with an appraising eye. "That's not bad." She kicked it, and although it shuddered, it didn't fall. She grinned. "Young man, you are one hell of a builder."

Goku through a hand behind his head and laughed. "You think so? I had fun doing it." he smiled. Goku picked up the boxes that he had lain down before and stacked them neatly on the booth.

"There! All done."

"Thank you, young man. You have a kind heart." she smiled and patted him on the arm. "Now you had better get going, I'm sure that you have a family and I'll bet that they are worried about you."

Goku smiled. "Yes, I think I had better get going."

He turned and walked off, waving good-bye. When he was out of sight, he flew straight up into the air and started slowly back to his house, though he could have easily teleported back using the instantaneous movement technique. He didn't want to have to deal with Chi Chi just yet, as he knew he would when he got back. His thoughts played back to that morning.



~"Goku! It's about time that you're up!!!!" She said turning to face him, her hands on her hips.

"Gomen nasai, Chi Chi-san, I was... tired." He said quickly, trying to stop her rant that he knew was coming on.

"But I thought that you didn't like me training with Vejita?" Goku asked confused.

"JUST GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!!!" she screamed so loud that the whole world must have heard.~



She has been acting strange for the last few months, he realized. What was going on? Why was she behaving so strangely? And why would she want him out of the house?

He gasped as he realized what everything was pointing to. No. He blinked his eyes, trying to hold back unshed tears. How could she do this to him? But even more, why hadn't he seen what was happening?

Because I couldn't think. Because I trusted her. Because I thought that she loved me. Because... I loved her. He gave a choked sob. But what if he was wrong? A hopeful look appeared on his face. What if it was just his imagination? He prayed that's all it was.
