Chapter two: The day my life changed [part two]
"The Ice Heart curse has spread throughout Tokyo, they show no sign of activity. Safety rods have been placed around them.
“We are still looking for a way to bring these people back to normal” Mr. Satan spoke on the news “but for now, we have no clue”We hope that the new guardians of Tokyo, Lordbug and Chat Noir will appear soon to save these victims."
Trunks listened to the news broadcast in the television on the living room of his house with a slight expression of shock, he could not believe that they had not yet found a solution to the problem and everyone had the hope that Lordbug and Chat Noir would appear to help them but that would not be possible since he had promised himself that he would never be Lordbug again, not with the disaster he had just done. Suddenly, he heard footsteps approach to the living room; a hand fell on his shoulder and he looked away meeting his mother’s blue eyes.
“Listen, Trunks. I know that this situation is a little alarming, but don’t worry, now we have two superheroes who watch Tokyo” Bulma said wanting to give her son some confidence “and the best way to help them is to show them that we aren’t afraid and that we trust them”
“But... what if Lordbug doesn’t show up to help them? what if he isn’t as good a hero as everyone says?" Trunks asked, crestfallen.
“Then I'll take care of protecting you! super scientist to the rescue!" Bulma exclaimed imitating a superhero pose from comics that made the lavender haired preteen laugh.
“Thanks Mom. I feel a little better.”
Trunks hugged his mother, left the living room and went to his bedroom, he took his backpack to go to school, today would be a different day. But while he took his backpack, he saw the drawer of his night table, he approached to it and opened it seeing that, indeed, the box that contained the Lordbug pothala earring was still there, he took the box looking at it carefully for a few seconds and then he put it in the front pocket of his backpack, he would find someone to replace Lordbug.
In the Son house, Yamcha was waiting for Gohan standing near the fireplace in the dining room watching the finely decorated clock that had been placed there, the minutes passed and Gohan had not yet come, they should have started with their lessons some time ago.“What he will be doing? why he was taking so long?"
Yamcha thought, he left the dining room and climbed upstairs to Gohan's bedroom, before entering, he knocked on the door "Gohan?" he did not get an answer from the other side so he tried again “Gohan. are you there?”
Without getting a response from the dark haired teen, Yamcha opened the door and when he entered he saw that Gohan was not there, quickly left the bedroom and ran to inform Chi-chi what had happened.
“How you didn’t see that my son ran away? If something happens to Gohan, I'll hold you responsible!" Chi-chi said annoyed, Yamcha only accepted the woman's scolding a little sorry, how would he knew that Gohan was going to escape from his bedroom?
Gohan ran as fast as he could through Tokyo streets in order to arrive to school, this time he would make sure he arrived on time, he would not let Yamcha, or his mother stop him.
"You're a very strange boy, why do you want to go to a boring school if you can stay quietly at home?" Plagg asked as the dark haired teen ran.
“You don’t understand, Plagg! I'm tired of my mother having me locked up at home, I want to go out and see the world, make other friends and go to school every day like normal people" Gohan replied without stopping running.
“I think I'm going to rest a little, I don’t feel my strength” the black kwami protested who stopped to rest.
“It's a joke? you spend all day eating Camembert cheese and I must be the one who should carry this stinky cheese in my backpack, it smells nasty, I don’t understand how you like it so much, that's strange" Gohan said taking a piece of Camembert cheese from his backpack to give it to his kwami.
“Hey! Eating cheese gives me energy, if you want me to be able to transform myself, you have to get used to stinking like old socks" Plagg said a little annoyed with his owner. Gohan just sighed frustrated, he opened the pocket of his backpack for the kwami to hide in it and continued his way to school.
Meanwhile, Goten and Trunks had already entered on the school, the dark haired boy was accompanying his friend to the classroom and he kept talking about the video he had filmed of his new favorite superhero: Lordbug. Trunks was already starting to bother about it but he did not want to be impolite with his new friend so he let him talk as much as he wanted about Lordbug and his video.
“The video that I uploaded to my website about Lordbug, became the first source of information of the coolest superhero I've ever seen” Goten told him as he showed the video uploaded on his website to his friend from his tablet “I had millions of visits since I upload it! that's great, isn’t it?”
“But... why do you have so much faith in Lordbug? You don’t even know if he's going to do his job well" said Trunks a little discouraged.
"You saw what happened with Ice Heart, I'm sure he's going to fix it!" Goten exclaimed enthusiastically.
“And if he isn’t made to be a hero as other people think?”
“What are you talking about? Oh... I know what's going on here” Goten said looking at his friend suspiciously, Trunks was static thinking that his friend had discovered him “you're scared, I understand, but I can assure you that Lordbug was there by my side! I have seen it with my own eyes! that boy is a true hero, he will protect us all. Trust me”
Trunks looked at him slightly amazed, his friend really trusted Lordbug, and who better to play the role of a hero than Goten? if Goten trusted him, then Trunks could count with Goten to be Lordbug's replacement. He immediately walked to him ready to hide the box with the Lordbug pothala earring in his backpack but he stopped when he heard his classmates talking with Broly, he turned around and went to see what was happening.
“Do you really remember anything of what happened? you destroyed everything in your way!”
"Really, my friend, you wanted to beat me up" Sharpener told him, remembering what had happened at the gym. Fasha was standing in the distance listening to the conversation but she barely felt Broly's eyes on her, she looked away pretending she was not paying attention to what they were saying.
“I'm sorry, I don’t know what happened to me, it wasn’t me at that moment” Broly replied sadly.
“You know the proverb ‘a monster will always be a monster’" Videl sayed with arrogance, Broly looked at her with rage, he got up from the floor and walked away from there totally annoyed passing by Trunks and Goten who watched him with concern, especially Trunks “okay, go away if you want, we'll be safer without you near here!”
Again, the villain Dark Butterfly was standing in front of that huge window with her eyes closed holding the handle of her cane with her left hand, inside the knob of the handle flew the butterfly that had previously bewitched Broly, the other butterflies that before covered her in her transformation rose up again, flying around the room.
“The acid comments always hurt, you have to get more angry, Broly... your akuma is waiting for you” Dark Butterfly said staring at the spellbound butterfly inside her cane.
Gohan ran faster and faster until he finally reached the Orange Star High school entrance, this time he was able to cross the entrance and he was halfway there when, for the second time, his mother's car appeared, Yamcha opened the door, he got out of the car and walked a few steps towards the entrance of the establishment.
“Gohan, stop, don’t do this. Your mother will be very upset" Yamcha warned him.
"Then tell her I'll be home late, all right?" the dark haired teen replied, without losing more time he ran to the school leaving Yamcha standing by the car, the dark haired man sighed, there was no point in convincing him to come back, after all, he in that thing he was so similar to his father.
“How could you tell that to Broly? you are the one with an ice heart! "Goten said looking at Videl angrily, she just listened to him with her arms crossed and a cynical smile.
“Oh, of course, because it’s my fault that Erasa's father broke his arm?” the dark haired girl said with sarcasm “just because they showed the video of those superheroes on television, don’t you think that the fame went to your head”
After saying that, Videl made a bubble with the chewing gum that she had in her mouth and exploded it in Goten's face, making the dark haired boy get more upset.
"You're a..." Goten growled with rage invading his body.
"Oh, dear, I made him get angry!" Videl exclaimed dramatically "he's so angry that he'll become a horrible and evil monster."
Goten did not answer, he just walked away completely irritated while Videl and Erasa watched him satisfied for their bad action. Suddenly, both girls came out of their thoughts when their hear a familiar voice talking to them.
"Hi, Videl-chan," Gohan said shyly.
"Gohan-kun!" Videl exclaimed excitedly, who runs to hug her super best friend and cover his face with little kisses “I knew you would come, baby!”
"I can’t believe it, it's Son Gohan!" One of the students exclaimed, all of them approached to receive the dark haired teen. Far from the commotion, Trunks approached to one of the hallways of the school meeting with Broly sitting on the floor with his back resting on one of the lockers, he looked discouraged and sad, the lavender haired preteen walked towards him with intention to helping him, he sat next to him and Broly looked away when he saw Trunks standing next to him.
“I give you an advice? you should tell Fasha what you feel for her.”
"I don’t know what you're talking about" Broly murmured indifferently.
"You don’t fool me, Broly, I saw how you look at her during classes!" Trunks said, wanting to cheer him up, the dark haired boy looked at him and then looked away embarrassed "don’t let the negative emotions affect you! what I'm trying to say is... that you've to be positive, I'm sure she's in love with you too, go and talk with her”
“It's no use, I'm bad with words.”
“Um, then let's try something else. Maybe you could draw something, get flowers...”
"Or maybe I'll write her a song" Broly said, wanting to add an idea to the possibilities that the young boy named him.
“That's a great idea! write a love song just for her! you can do it, Broly and... um... have positive thoughts!" Trunks advised him, Broly smiled feeling a little better with the words of his classmate, he got up and ran to work on the song for Fasha. On the other hand, Dark Butterfly got a little upset because thanks to Trunks encouraging words, Broly's negative emotions had disappeared. Gohan walked to his classroom accompanied by Videl, several students approached to ask for a picture with him or an autograph and he only limited to greet everyone politely until they finally found the classroom.
"Your desk is right here, Gohan-kun" Videl said, pointing to an empty desk next to his "I've assigned it to you, baby. That way you will be close to me throughout the school year”
“T-Thank you, Videl-chan” Gohan thanked her, he sat at his desk, placed the backpack to one side and he saw a girl with light blue hair sitting on the desk on the left “hello how are you? my name is Gohan”
"So you're Videl Satan friend, aren’t you?" Bra asked suspiciously, knowing perfectly well that all the people who hang up with the dark haired girl did not have good intentions. Gohan looked away and noticed how Videl took the chewing gum out of her mouth, gave it to Erasa and she took charge of sticking it on Trunks desk.
“Hey, stop! what are you doing?" Gohan asked, approaching to his super best friend.
“The guys who are sitting here treated me badly yesterday, they deserve a little discipline, I just want them to learn that they must respect me” Videl answered nonchalantly, Gohan pushed the girl aside and knelt to try to take off the chewing gum from Trunks chair.
"But don’t you think you're going too far?" the dark-haired boy asked.
“Hahahaha, you can see that you still have a lot to learn from the school environment, Gohan-kun” Videl replied, going to sit at Trunks old desk “pay attention, baby, learn from your dear teacher”
“Goten, tell me something, would you like to be a superhero?” Trunks asked as he walked with his friend to the classroom “so you could fight monsters and villains.”
“Oh, no, of course not. I don’t tolerate violence” Goten replied “why do you say it?”
“N-no, it's nothing, just... I wanted to know” Trunks said a little embarrassed, taking advantage of the fact that his friend was distracted, he opened the front pocket of his backpack, took out the box with Lordbug’s miraculous and placed it inside the backpack of his friend. Both entered on the classroom but as soon as Trunks arrived at his desk, he found a dark haired boy who had just glued a chewing gum to his chair “hey! what do you think you're doing?”
“What? no! I... is not what it seems..." Gohan tried to explain, both teenagers turned their eyes to Videl and Erasa who were laughing out loud of the shameful situation they were going through, Trunks looked at them with hate and turned his gaze to Gohan completely annoyed.
“Hahaha, I got it. I congratulate us, very funny" Trunks said with annoyance and sarcasm.
“It's not what it seems! I was just trying to remove the chewing gum” Gohan said wanting to defend his point of view but apparently that did not help.
"Oh, yeah?" Trunks said defiantly, tried to take out the chewing gum on his own but he only got his fingers sticky, so he opened his backpack, took out a tissue and put it on the chewing gum on his chair, then he turned his gaze to Gohan “you are the super best friend that Videl told me about, isn’t it?”
“Why everyone ask me that?”
Trunks ignored Gohan, he just sat down on his chair avoiding to touch the chewing gum. The dark haired teen sighed sadly and returned to his desk in the middle of Bra and Videl.
"You see what I mean by discipline, Gohan-kun?" Videl said with her hands resting under her chin, smiling wickedly.
“I have the feeling that I've seen that boy somewhere...” Trunks murmured looking at Gohan suspiciously, Goten took out his tablet and started looking for information about that boy and what he found left him shocked, he touched his friend shoulder to get his attention, Trunks looked away, took Goten's tablet and looked at the images he had opened on it “of course! how could I be so blind? he is the son of my favorite martial arts fighter, Ox Satan Chi-chi”
“Mommy's baby? Starchild model? and Videl's super best friend? forget it! you couldn’t talk with him in a million years" Goten said ruining Trunks hopes to be able to establish a friendship with that boy.
"Why didn’t you explain that it was Videl who did that?" Bra asked Gohan.
“Well, I know that Videl isn’t perfect but I've known her since we were children, I can’t stop her from doing what she wants... she's the only friend I have” Gohan answered crestfallen.
“Nice to meet you, my name is Bra” the light blue haired girl said extending her hand to Gohan “it was time for you to make real friends and they don’t to be like Videl”
Gohan smiled at Bra's words and without hesitation, he took his new friend’s hand.
The second bell had rang, Fasha came out of the bathroom in a hurry, she was late for the first class of the day, she walked to the sink, washed her hands and face, when she finished she went to look for her things so she could go to classes before she was scolded for being late, but as soon as she arrived to the lockers corridor, she meet Broly.
“Broly! what are you doing here? you scared me!" Fasha exclaimed.
“I... I wrote this for you ...” Broly said, he reproduced a rock melody on his phone at full volume forcing the girl to cover her ears, because the music was too strong “Fasha! you are stronger than an oak! would you like to be my queen?!”
Fasha recoiled and ran away from there stunned by the loud noise of the music along with Broly screams, the dark haired boy saw his crush running away from him, he looked at the song he had written for her, threw the phone on the floor, he made a bun with the paper and sat with his back against the wall. Singing a song had not worked, it had only scared her, how could he have been so stupid?
"Yes, that's exactly what I was waiting for!" Dark Butterfly exclaimed, immediately she release the spellbound butterfly, which flew out through the same opening in the window “you know the way, little Akuma. Fly away, look for him and bewitch his heart!”
The spell bounded butterfly flew back to Orange Star High school, it got into the paper bun that Broly held in his left hand turning it purple, for the second time, the boy again heard Dark Butterfly voice speaking in his mind.
"Here you have a second chance, Ice Heart. And this time, it will be easier, nobody will stop you from be with the girl you love” Dark Butterfly told him “but don’t forget that you have a condition...”
The expression on Broly's face changed from sad to an evil, so much that even a cynical smile was drawn on his face, the same black aura of the last time surrounded him and turned him into Ice Heart, instantly all the villain clones reacted and began to spread chaos and fear throughout Tokyo.
Returning to the classroom, the professor was responsible for passing list to those who were present for the class that day but it missing something, rather, someone and that someone was Broly.
"Son, Gohan?" the professor asked going through the list, the dark haired young man looked at him without understanding what he was referring to.
“You have to say ‘here’" Bra whispered to her new friend.
"Here!" Gohan exclaimed, getting up from his chair which made many of his classmates laugh, including his professor.
"Broly?" the professor said, instantly the door was broken and Ice Heart entered on the classroom, startling the professor and the other students.
"Here I am!" Ice Heart exclaimed in a husky voice "Fasha!"
He started walking through the desks looking for the girl of his dreams, most of the students got up and ran away from there, Gohan got up and ran out with the others, but his plan is not going to escape, he thought to find a safe place to be able to get turned into Chat Noir without anyone seeing it. Ice Heart reached the desk where Fasha was and took her firmly with his free hand, the girl clung tightly to him.
"L-Let me go, Broly!" Fasha begged fearfully.
“That's over, I'm not Broly, my name is Ice Heart” the monster made of ice and snow said.
“Why are you doing this?”
“Because we could be together forever.”
“Hello? daddy? the ice monster returned!" Videl told to her father from her phone hidden under her desk, Ice Heart saw her, moved her desk to the side, took her firmly with his other hand, walked to the nearest wall and escaped from there creating a hole with his head. Goten peeked through the gap in the wall watching Ice Heart move away from the high school with Videl and Fasha, then turned his gaze to Trunks who was hiding behind a desk.
"Come on, hurry up, we have to follow them!" Goten said enthusiastically with his tablet in his hand, always ready to film the facts.
“Ah... n-no, you can follow them, I prefer to stay here, it's safer" Trunks said from his place.
“But, Trunks. You're going to lose Lordbug in action!" Goten protested. Trunks glanced at his friend's backpack and took it with both hands.
"You and Lordbug will be fine without me" Trunks said, handing the backpack to his friend where Lordbug's miraculous had hidden, it was his chance to transform and save Tokyo; however, Goten had other plans.
"Well, if you say so..." Goten said, without missing a second, he ran out of the classroom, leaving Trunks and his backpack completely forgotten.
“No wait! you are forgetting your backpack! Goten!" Trunks exclaimed, he clutched the backpack tightly in his right hand and ran out to find his friend, he should see him as soon as possible and give him the Lordbug miraculous so he could transform and help Chat Noir.
Gohan reached the lockers hall, he opened his locker and took out his backpack releasing Plagg from it, the kwami came out of the front pocket of his backpack and floated in front of him and behind the locker.
"It's my first day of school and I didn’t even get my asistance recorded" Gohan told to the little black Kwami.
"You have a day off, what good news!" Plagg said, putting on a relaxed pose when he heard that.
“Oh, of course not, sir. We have work to do" Gohan said, knowing the intentions of the kwami "Plagg, paws off!"
Plagg was introduced into the ring and Gohan was turned into Chat Noir, a gray martial arts fighter suit with black sleeves bent until the elbows replaced his usual clothes, a black mask with cat ears included covered his face, a thick black belt was fitted to his suit which was long to the heels, at the bottom came loose black pants and shoes that matched with them, finally a silver wristband was incorporated into his left arm.
Ice Heart had recently moved away from Orange Star High school and now walked Tokyo streets carrying Videl and Fasha in his hands.
“I think you aren’t aware of what I am, my father is the governor of Tokyo, he is going to make the police intervene and also the army, to resume, all the cavalry will stop you!” Videl exclaimed annoyed.
“Don't forget the superheroes!” Chat Noir said appearing on the scene, he hit Ice Heart with the stick that he took out of his silver bracelet but he only made the monster grow back in size like the last time “ups I'm sorry!”
“You didn’t mean to say ´super incompetent’?” Videl asked being clutched by Ice Heart hand.
“You said you wanted the cavalry, right? well, here they come!" Ice Heart said, in the blink of an eye the the ice and snow monster clones walked towards him, they formed a circle around Chat Noir “stop him!”
Chat Noir, seeing that he had no escape, he began to run being chased by that army of ice and snow monsters who tried to capture him or rather crush him at all costs but the feline hero avoid his attacks. Ice Heart began to walk away from there, leaving their replicas to take care of Chat Noir.
"Where are we going now?" Fasha asked, looking at Ice Heart.
“We're on our way to Tokyo Skytree, I have to deliver an important message, then you and I will be together forever for the power of the purple butterfly” Ice Heart replied.
“Agh, all this is love and cheesy make me feel sick” Videl complained rolling her eyes.
“Don't worry, little freak. As soon as I finish with this, I'll take care of you.”
Videl remained silent and shrugged frightened in her place, Ice Heart continued on his way without realizing that Chat Noir was following him, apparently she had managed to escape from her army. On the other hand, Goten ran as fast as he could, he turned to the left and hid behind a nearby wall, turned on his tablet and started filming Ice Heart with Videl and Fasha kidnapped.
“Lordbug, if you listen to me, I need some help!" Chat Noir said, dodging the cars thrown by Ice Heart clones.“What will he be waiting for? why he don’t come?"
Goten thought, looking both ways, waiting for his favorite superhero to appear at the scene.
Trunks came running to the street where Goten was, one of Ice Heart clones threw another car, which bounced off the street and rolled towards Goten, who got up from his place and began to run to avoid the car what bounced underneath him, the lavender haired preteen just watched what happened with terror while covering his mouth with his hands. Chat Noir threw his metal stick against the car and it fell on top of Goten lying face up on the dark haired boy, the hand with which Trunks held his backpack fell, was paralyzed by fear as the first time he went to fight against Ice Heart.
"No, Goten..." Trunks whispered in shock.
With difficulty, Goten managed to poke half of his body by the side of the car but he could not get his body out completely, he was stuck. One of Ice Heart clones approached behind Chat Noir and took him tightly with his right hand preventing it from escaping, Trunks turned his frightened gaze at him and then turned his gaze towards Goten.
"HELP ME!" Goten cried stuck in the car.
Trunks remained in shock, paralyzed by fear but then he reacted, recovering the courage and confidence in himself that he think they’re lost: he finally understood that nobody but him could do this work, only him could be Lordbug and save Tokyo, nobody could replace him, even Goten. Determined, he opened his friend backpack taking out the box that contained his miraculous, he quickly put the pothala earring in his right ear and instantly, Tikki appeared in front of him.
"I suppose I need Lordbug's help now!" Trunks exclaimed worriedly.
"I knew you would say that!" Tikki said enthusiastically.
“Well, I still don’t know if what I do is the right thing to do but... Goten is in trouble, I can’t sit idly and doing nothing” Trunks replied “Tikki, dots on!”
Tikki got into the pothala earring in his right ear, Trunks clothes began to change again. A cherry-red eye mask with black spots appeared magically on his face, a light red with black polka dots loose long sleeved shirt replaced his usual shirt, baggy red pants which were fastened at the bottom by some dark red and black combat boots, a sword covered by a red and black sheath fastened with a red belt around his body and a red yo-yo with four black polka dots on the edges and one in the center representing the ladybugs. Lordbug threw his yo-yo running the rope around the car, he took both ends of the yo-yo and pulled hard to move the car, barely did it, he released Goten who ran out of there and the hero let go of his yo-yo to support the car against the wall.
“Don't stay here, it's very dangerous. Hide and keep silent" Lordbug said, who with a movement of his yo-yo picked up the metal stick of Chat Noir and quickly moved to the street that led to Tokyo Skytree, where Ice Heart was going. He began to dodge his aftershocks by finding the one who imprisoned Chat Noir in his hand, jumped into a building and threw the stick to the feline hero “Chat Noir! extend your stick!" Chat Noir managed to extend his stick and get free himself, Lordbug tied his yo-yo to one of the hero's legs and pulled him towards the post where he was kneeling, leaving him face down “I'm very sorry for the delay”
"My Lord, did someone tell you that you put my world upside down?" Chat Noir asked.
"Oh, so now you're making jokes?" Lordbug answered sarcastically, the lavender haired hero saw how the Ice Heart replicas were approaching them “we better solve it later, we must hurry and get out of here”
He jumped to the roof of a building taking Chat Noir behind him. Once they arrived, both heroes began to move away by jumping over the Tokyo building roof.
"Hey, aren’t we going to help them?" Chat Noir asked, seeing the victims turned into Ice Heart clones.
“We can’t, if we want to save them all we need to find the source of power” Lordbug answered, stopping in a building, Chat Noir stood next to him leaving both heroes standing in front of Tokyo Skytree “and is there”
Ice Heart was already at the top of Tokyo Skytree, police and television helicopters flew around the building, police patrols had formed a barricade to prevent the ice and snow monster from escaping, Mr. Satan was standing in front of Tokyo Skytree with a megaphone in the hand being guarded by the police and the patrols that formed the barricade.
"I demand you to give me my daughter!" the man ordered through the megaphone.
"Daddy!" Videl shouted from her position being imprisoned by Ice Heart.
“You know what? I will gladly give her to you" Ice Heart replied, who without hesitation even threw Videl hard, the girl began to scream and Mr. Satan panicked when he saw his daughter about to fall in the street.
"If I get out of this alive, I promise I'll be good with everyone..." Videl begged but just before falling into the street, Lordbug appeared on the scene and rescued Videl, carrying her in his arms, the dark haired girl was relieved to see Lordbug had come to save her “okay, I didn’t promise anything”
"Uh... what?" Lordbug said confused, Videl jumped out of his arms and ran to her father.
"Daddy!" Videl said hugging him.
“Oh, my little girl. I was worried about you” Mr. Satan said taking his daughter's embrace.
"We can start attacking now!" the police officer ordered to his mates who prepared their weapons to attack Ice Heart.
“No wait! don’t attack him, just make things get worse!" Lordbug said.
“We don’t need the superheroes to tell us what to do! let the professionals do their work, you already failed the first time.”
“It's true, he's right” Lordbug said looking away disappointed “if I had captured the Ice Heart Akuma from the beginning none of this would have happened I'm not good enough to be a hero!”
“But what are you talking about? that's not true, because without you, she would not be here with her father” Chat Noir said watching Videl hugging her father, Lordbug did the same and then turned his gaze to his partner “so calm down, because without our help, they will not be able to defeat him and we will prove otherwise, trust me, okay?”
"Okay" Lordbug said smiling, both heroes looked away to see that Ice Heart began to convulse strangely, the monster made of ice and snow wobbled and fell on the floor with his mouth open but without releasing Fasha from his left hand. Instantly, thousands of purple butterflies flew into the sky and accumulated forming the face of a woman that Chat Noir and Lordbug could not identify.“Ladies and gentlemen of Tokyo, listen to me with attention, I am Dark Butterfly. Lordbug, Chat Noir, give me your miraculous, the Lordbug pothala earring and the black cat ring, everything will be as before, people have suffered too much thanks to your irresponsibility."
"Good try, Dark Butterfly" Lordbug interrupted her, clapping sarcastically "but we both know you're the villain here, you turned all those innocent people into ice monsters. Listen to me, no matter how long we take, we'll find you and in the end you'll give us your miraculous” he began to run towards the purple butterflies “it's time to free you from evil!” he prepared his yo-yo and caught them to all with speed and agility until there was not a single sight, he stood up facing the police and all the habitants of Tokyo “let me tell you something, no matter what happens or who want to harm you Lordbug and Chat Noir will do everything possible to protect us!”
He pressed a secret button in the center of his yo-yo and released all the purified butterflies in a white explosion, all began to shout and cheerfully applaud for the motivational speech that the lavender haired hero had given, even Videl shouted with the other citizens of Tokyo.
"Oh, well... it doesn’t matter who's under that mask but... I love that boy!" Chat Noir said with a smile on his face.
“That’s the problem with the superheroes, they are too... heroic!” Dark Butterfly murmured, standing with the help of his cane “Ice Heart! they’re going to try to distance you from the girl of your dreams, take their miraculous! after that, they will not be able to defeat you”
“All right, Dark Butterfly.”
Ice Heart stood up with the help of his free hand as with the other holding Fasha, Lordbug and Chat Noir climbed into the Tokyo Skytree getting into attack position.
"Help me!" Fasha cried, being imprisoned by that monster of ice and snow.
“Don't dare to approach, you will never have Fasha!” Ice Heart exclaimed, who with a strong jump caused the heroes to lose their balance and fall with their backs to the ground but they were able to stand up to the time when the monster climbed to the top of the Tokyo Skytree taking Fasha with him “let's go, my ice soldiers!”
Without losing a minute, the Ice Heart clones began to climb out of the building to where their leader was.
“They’re coming! what can we do to stop them? we can’t attack them" Chat Noir said, looking at his partner.
“No, but we already know where the Akuma is. It's in his clenched fist, in which he holds Fasha” Lordbug said watching Ice Heart climb out of Tokyo Skytree.
“Well, we already know that he is in love with her... I already know what to do! We can’t break apart Ice Heart from Fasha, we have to bring them closer!" Lordbug exclaimed enthusiastically "they are made to be together but they still have no idea."
Quickly, Lordbug jumped through the window of the building and used his yo-yo to climb to the top of Tokyo Skytree.
“I don’t understand all this mess, but I trust you” Chat Noir said “something tells me that it will be like this from now on”
Wasting no more time, the feline hero pulled his stick out of his silver bracelet and began climbing the building to reach the top, using his stick from time to time to reach places that were difficult to climb. Both heroes climbed together outside the building to the rooftop, where police helicopters were surrounding the monster, Lordbug took one last jump with a cartwheel and clung to the antenna that jutted out of the building.
“Save me please! I'm afraid of heights" Fasha shouted at the lilac-haired hero.
"Don’t worry, everything's going to be fine!" Lordbug reassured her, the Ice Heart clones came to the rooftop and Chat Noir moved a bit to avoid being caught, then immediately stood guard and looked away to his partner.
"How are we going to make them closer than they already are?" Chat Noir asked, looking at Lordbug.
"Using our powers!" Lordbug answered "lucky charm!"
his yo-yo launched into the air, a white light came out of him along with thousands of ladybugs and these revealed the object to use: a parachute “what? a parachute? and what am I going to do with this?”
“Are you sure you control your power correctly?”
“We'll see that” Lordbug said arranging the parachute behind his back, turned his yo-yo and threw it towards Ice Heart tangling the rope around his left fist where he had imprisoned Fasha “Chat Noir, stay alert!”
The lavender haired hero pulled hard on his yo-yo's rope, shortening the distance between Fasha and Ice Heart, causing both to seal the distance with a small kiss, due to the whirlwind of emotions that he was feeling, the villain released the girl of his dreams making her fall from the heights along with the block of purple ice, Chat Noir jumped down from the roof and hurriedly hit the ice block with his metal stick sending him to Lordbug, he caught the block with his yo-yo, making use of the rope, he broke the ice block into pieces and the spellbound butterfly flew away from there.
"You've done enough damage, Akuma" Lordbug said, opening his yo-yo, releasing the web of light that would trap the enchanted butterfly to purify it “it's time to free you from...!” but before he could catch the butterfly, he stopped when he heard a scream and could see that Fasha and Broly were falling from the heights, watched both teenagers fall from the building, looked at the akuma and sighed that that could wait, now had to save Fasha and Broly, ran until they reached the roof and jumped out of there “Chat Noir, help Broly!”"Cataclysm!"
Chat Noir raised his left hand causing a black energy sphere to emerge from it, closed his hand tightly and said energy surrounded his hand and bracelet, used his metal rod to gain momentum, jumped into one of the metal beams of the building, he grazed it with its cataclysm rusting it, a long pua came out of the beam, jumped towards it and approached enough to be able to catch Broly and prevent it from crashing to the ground.
Lordbug approached Fasha, took her by the waist with one arm while he had free use his yo-yo to catch the Akuma and opened the parachute, that way both would be safe. Chat Noir observed everything with a smile on his face, seriously admired the person who was under that mask, there was no doubt that there was a great determination in that boy. The lavender haired hero landed on the ground depositing Fasha carefully, the parachute fell behind him, he pressed the secret button that opened his yo-yo releasing the now white butterfly.
"See you soon, little butterfly!" Lordbug said, he took the parachute and threw it hard into the sky "Miraculous Lordbug!" the parachute vanished into thousands of ladybugs that flew all over Tokyo, repairing the damage caused by Ice Heart and undoing the spell that the Akuma scattered on the habitants of Tokyo that were turned into clones of the ice and snow monster “wow! are you seeing what I see?”
“Yes” Chat Noir said walking towards the lavender haired hero holding Broly.
"It's amazing and incredible, it's... it's... Miraculous!" Lordbug exclaimed, watching the ladybugs fly around them and all over Tokyo.
"This has just been the beginning of everything, Lordbug!" Dark Butterfly exclaimed, annoyed “you and Chat Noir may have won this battle, but I'm going to win next time! one day I will have your miraculous, I will be an absolute goddess and my most desired wish will come true!”
The calm had returned in Tokyo thanks to their heroes, Lordbug and Chat Noir, the police removed the safety rods that had previously placed to avoid the attacks of Ice Heart clones, the victims who had returned to normal returned to their homes or to continue with their routines. On the other hand, Broly and Fasha were a little nervous, they did not know what to say after the kiss they had just given, they looked at each other for a few seconds and then averted their eyes slightly flushed.
“I think you must have something to confess” Lordbug said putting his hands on their shoulders, Broly again averted his eyes a little nervous, the lavender haired hero pulled a sheet of crumpled paper and gave it to Fasha “maybe you should read the lyrics of the song that you wrote”
Fasha took the crumpled paper and read the lyrics of the song that Broly wrote for her in Kanji, when she finished, she looked at Broly with a smile.
“Oh, gods! this is a very beautiful thing!” the girl commented, Broly looked at her without believing what he was listening to, Fasha had liked his song! "It's a pity that we can’t hear well when you're screaming, I mean, when you're singing”
“I scared you, isn’t it? that's why you ran away" murmured Broly sadly "I'm sorry, I'll do it better the next time."
The girl smiled and hugged tenderly the boy of her dreams; Broly blushed slightly but let himself go and take back her hug. Lordbug and Chat Noir watched the cute scene, especially Lordbug who could not help but let out a small scream of excitement.
“You see? I told you, they're made to be together!" Lordbug said, looking at his feline partner.
"Yes, just like both of us" Chat Noir said, wanting to surround Lordbug's shoulder with his arm but he stopped him taking his wrist in a reflex act only to see the green cat's paw blinking in his ring.
“Ups look your miraculous! you have to go fast!" Lordbug exclaimed, he released his partner's wrist and began to walk away from there “well, see you soon, Chat Noir!”
"I can’t wait for that to happen, my lord" Chat Noir said bowing, then both heroes separated and each one went on his way.
The next day, Goten and Trunks walked together to Orange Star High school. They were talking about what had happened the previous evening and as they arrived Goten was telling Trunks how little he had been able to film Chat Noir’s battle with Ice Heart. .
"And by the time I got home, I took my bike and got to Tokyo Skytree as fast as I could, it was over!" Goten sighed in frustration as he walked with Trunks towards the school door “what a disappointment!”
"Don’t worry, you'll have another chance soon" Trunks comfort him.
“You're right! next goal to do: have an exclusive interview with Lordbug!" Goten said with determination.
"I can’t wait to see that!" Trunks said enthusiastically.
“No wait. I have something much better, I will find out who is hiding behind the mask.”
“Yes, I wish you luck trying.”
Both friends entered the school without realizing that Gohan's car had just arrived at the facility. The dark haired teen was inside the car sitting next to Yamcha having a conversation with his mother, well, if you could call it conversation the way the dark haired woman was scolding him.
"You made a big mistake escaping of the house without my permission, Gohan" Chi-chi said seriously from the seat screen, "so... did you see that building?" Gohan just looked at Orange Star High school.
“Yes, I see it...” Gohan replied with his head down knowing what was coming next.
“Pay attention to what I will say, never and I want to say, you will never come back...” Chi-chi said seriously.
“What? no mom!" Gohan said, unable to believe what he was hearing.
“Without company” Chi-chi interrupted him “Yamcha will go with you and pick you up when class finished every day, he will be organizing your schedule, you will continue to attend English literature classes, drawing, photo sessions and martial arts practice.”
"Oh, thank you very much, Yamcha" Gohan said, seeing his mother's assistant sitting next to him "thanks mom!"
He immediately got out of the car and ran into the school before he was late to enter on the first hour of class. Goten and Trunks had already entered the classroom and were about to sit at their desks near the window but the lavender haired preteen had another plan.
“Wait! Something comes to my mind” Trunks said, stopping his friend, he ran to his old desk and took a seat there, he pointed to the empty desk next to him that belonged to Erasa. Goten smiled and went to take a seat with his friend but as soon as they did, Videl and Erasa entered on the classroom.
"Uh?" Videl noticed that something was not right, Goten and Trunks had sat at the desks that belonged to her and her best friend, she approached to them with an annoyance look on her face “excuse me! but you sat in the wrong places, what are you waiting for? get lost! go to sit on another place!”
“I'm sorry, Videl. But the only thing that makes evil continue to exist is the lack of action on part of the heroes" Trunks said with his arms crossed on the desk.
"And what do you mean with that?" Videl asked, placing her hands on her waist, Erasa looked both boys angrily.
“I mean we aren’t inferior to you, Videl. I will not going to bear with your bad temper anymore, and nobody else will do it" Trunks replied, then he got up from his desk and pointed to the back seats with his finger “so to begin, I'd appreciate it if you took your bad temper and went to sit down on another place”
Videl looked at Trunks with hatred reflected in her eyes, walked away completely annoyed and went to sit with Erasa at the desks next to the window. Trunks sat down again at his desk smiling with satisfaction at having put Videl in her old desk, right where she should be.
"Good job" Goten said, resting a hand on his shoulder.
Gohan entered on the classroom, he greeted Bra and took a seat next to her, he turned his gaze to Goten and Trunks with the intention of greeting the latter but Trunks just ignored him by averting his gaze, Gohan realized that he was still annoyed by the chewing gum incident in his chair and turned his head downcast.
"Listen, if you want to make real friends, you should talk with Trunks" Bra advised her friend "you know, about the chewing gum incident."
"But what am I going to tell him?" Gohan asked, he had never had this kind of problem before.
“Just... tell him the truth and everything will be fine” the light blue haired girl said making her friend smile.
Classes were over and it had started to rain, although the rain was not as strong. Gohan and Trunks were the last to leave, the dark haired teenager had taken the precaution of carrying an umbrella in case of storm, taking advantage of Trunks waiting for the storm to give way to go home, Gohan approached to talk with him.
“Hey, hello” Gohan greeted him kindly but the younger boy just looked away, the dark haired teenager understood that Trunks did not want to talk with him so he started walking a few steps out of Orange Star High school main door, the car in which Yamcha came to pick him up was waiting for him in the entrance but before leaving, he stopped and looked away towards Trunks “I wanted you to know that... yesterday I was trying to remove the chewing gum from the chair, and I want to tell it you know?”
"What?" Trunks said confused.
“I've never been to school before; I've never had other friends besides Videl. This world... all this is... different for me" Gohan told him regretfully, despite that, he kept his usual cheerful smile. Without thinking, he brought his umbrella to Trunks to return home and not get wet with the rain, the lavender haired preteen looked at him a little stunned but reached his hand to take the umbrella, accidentally his hands brushed so Gohan put the umbrella in his hand, Trunks placed the umbrella over his head and automatically closed on him making Gohan laugh, the younger boy raised the umbrella a little to see Gohan laughing and he laughed with him slightly flushed “well, see you tomorrow”
Gohan started to walk to the car where Yamcha was waiting to return home, Trunks just watched him go away as his free hand loosened and dropped his backpack on the floor, because the other was busy holding the umbrella that gave the dark haired teen.
“Y-Yes …” Trunks thinned nervously “s-see... see you tomorrow” he realized what he said and tried to correct himself “w-well, no... I mean, I-I see you t-tomorrow gods! why am I talking like this?”
"I have a little idea why you're like that" Tikki said mischievously hugging his owner's cheek, Trunks smiled at the hug his kwami give to him.
“Oh, wow! It's the first day of school and we already have two lovers" Plagg crooned mockingly in Gohan's backpack.
“Pfff... of course not, you're saying nonsense. He's just a new friend” Gohan said, he reacted when he realized what he had said and he smiled slightly “I have a new friend... so exciting!”
Gohan climbed up into the car owned by his mother and drive away from the Orange Star High school, Trunks sighed relieved and happy, took his backpack, placed it on his back and with umbrella in hand began his way back to his home. None of them realized that someone was watching every refugee under an umbrella and that someone was Master Roshi, who was proud to have his mission complete.
"This was an excellent choice, sensei" Wayzz told him.
“I know, those two are made to be together” Master Roshi said, maybe Gohan and Trunks have started their relationship with their left foot but something said that their adventures protecting the streets of Tokyo as Lordbug and Chat Noir would strength more the bond they had.
