What happens when the Prince of the Saiyans meets the Princess of the Moon?
"Poor, weak, pathetic, fool. You are no match for me, little girl." Cell said mockingly.
"We shall see." Cosmos said calmly. She closed her eyes, calling for power. She would not let this monster get away with this. He would pay.. he would pay dearly.
"It would be nice to test my full power. The fool thought he could beat me even after I reached my final form." Cell said.
"I will not let you hurt anyone else. I will protect this world, even if it means giving my life." Cosmos said, slowly walking towards Cell. 'Krillin!' She shouted in her mind.
"Huh?" Krillin said, hearing her voice in his head. 'Yeah?' He answered.
'Get Vegeta out of here while I distract him' She instructed.
"Right!" He said outloud.
"Huh? Right what?" Trunks asked, looking at Krillin as if he were crazy.
"Stay here, you're mom's gonna distract Cell so I can get Vegeta out of here." Krillin said.
'Trunks, you should leave with Krillin' Cosmos said, her voice sounding in Trunks's mind.
'No way! I'm not going to lose you, mother!' Trunks said.
'Please, it is too dangerous. I will be fine.' Cosmos tried to reassure him.
'No' He replied plainly. There was nothing Sailor Cosmos could do, though. She couldn't force him to leave, if anything happened to her, at least he would be there to try and stop Cell.
"What are you waiting for great and powerful Cosmos?" Cell asked, a smirk slowly spreading across his face.
"Just giving you a chance to get ready." Cosmos said, her eyes narrowed on Cell.
"I'm ready when you are." He said.
"Good." She said, the staff disappearing from her hand. It was replaced by a long sword that shimmered in the light. She charged at him, swinging the sword hard. It missed him, giving him a nice gash on his cheek.
"How dare you!!" He shouted in anger. He formed a rather large blast in his palm, preparing to launch it at Cosmos. She disappeared from his view, reappearing behind him. She swung the sword down, missing by mere inches.
"Now's my chance to get him out of here." Krillin said to himself. He floated down the Vegeta's unconscious body, picking him up and throwing him onto his back.
"Is that all you've got?" Cosmos asked, dodging every punch he threw at her. She ducked low, punching him in his exposed stomach. He hunched over, clutching his stomach with both hands. Moments later, he recovered, landing a punch square in Cosmos's face. She staggered back a few steps, dropping the sword. She wiped her mouth, revealing blood on her perfectly white skin.
"Not so tough without you little sword, are you?" Cell asked, picking up the sword. Cosmos held out her hand and it flew toward her. As soon as it touched her hand, it disappeared into thin air.
'How does she do that?' Trunks asked himself, seeing the sword disappear.
"I'm just getting warmed up." Cosmos said in a low voice. She began to power up, her hair growing in length and her eyes going from cerulean blue, to blue-green.
"I see you're a Saiyan too. No matter, I've already defeated your little Vegeta and that boy up there won't be too hard either." Cell said, smirking up at Trunks.
"I'm not like them. I have the power of love and the power of the planets behind me. That is how I am so much more powerful than anyone you've faced. You haven't even begun to see my real power." Cosmos said, smirking right back. She charged at Cell, kicking him firmly in the stomach. He staggered back a few feet, rubbing his tender stomach.
"Nice kick," He muttered, feeling the pain die away seconds later. "You knocked the breath out of me."
"I'll be knocking a lot more out of you." Cosmos said calmly.
"This arrogance of yours will be your downfall, just like Vegeta." Cell commented.
"This is not arrogance, this is determination," Cosmos said. "I will not allow you to hurt anymore innocent people. That is a promise." She said, her voice turning cold.
"I'm scared." He said sarcastically.
"Silver Moon Sparkle!!" She shouted, cupping her hands together. White energy gathered in her hands and moments later, she hurled the pure ball of energy at the waiting Cell. He managed to send a blast, the two meeting in the middle. The force of the energies meeting started to make a crater form around the two of them starting from the middle and working its way out. "Kaioken!! Times three!!" She shouted, adding more power to her attack. The energy raced through her, making her attack much more powerful. It quickly overcame Cell and he was thrown backward into the ocean.
"Mom!" She heard a voice call from above. She looked up to see a young man with lavender hair.
"Huh?" She said, seeing the boy. "Trunks?" She questioned.
"Yeah, it's me." He said, floating down to stand next to her. Cosmos threw her arms around the boy's neck, sobbing into his chest. He gasped and stood shocked at her reaction, then reluctantly, hugged her back.
"I'm sorry Trunks," She said, smiling as she wiped her tears. "It's just that.. I've missed you since you saved Rini."
"How sweet, a family reunion." A voice said above them. The two of them looked up to see Cell floating down to the ground.
"Let me take care of him, mother." Trunks said.
"What? I don't think so. I'm not going to let my only son get killed." She said. 'I know I'm not strong enough to defeat him, though.' She thought. 'Maybe he is.'
"Bulma of the future told me about the crystal and I know that if you keep fighting, you might use it. I don't want to see you die just because you used too much of your energy." Trunks said, his eyes going cold as he looked at the evil creature.
"All right, but if you get into any trouble at all, I'm going to step in," Cosmos said calmly. She floated into the air, heading for the small hill that Trunks had been atop of minutes before. "Trunks!" She called turning around.
"Yeah?" He asked, turning back to her. He saw that sword appear in her hand as she looked down at him.
"Don't get yourself killed!" She shouted, tossing the sword down to Trunks who caught it and looked it over. 'Wow, this sword is weird.' He thought, examining the excellent craftwork of the sword. 'I can feel this weird power running through my body.' He thought as the strange feeling of purity ran through his veins.
"What's happening down there?!?" Bulma demanded, holding baby Trunks to her chest. Piccolo and Tien stood dumbfounded as they realized that Serenity was letting Trunks fight. "Tell me!!" She shrieked.
"Serenity's letting Trunks fight." Tien said, quieting the woman.
"Please be careful, Trunks." Serenity whispered, floating above them. Her wings fluttered as she touched down on the earth a few hundred yards away, disappearing as her feet touched the ground.
"Pathetic woman, she was no match for me anyway." Cell was muttering.
"My mother is strong, you haven't even seen the depths of her power. You must get through me to get to her, though." Trunks muttered, holding the sword tightly in his hand.
"And what can you do boy?" Cell asked, an arrogant smile on his face. "Your father was no match for me, nor was your mother. What do you think you can accomplish?!"
"I'm stronger than my father, and if my mother uses her true power, she'll die." Trunks said, firmly planting his feet on the ground.
"She's going to die anyway, and so are you boy." Cell said, forming an energy blast. He flung it at Trunks who was barely able to dodge the attack. Serenity watched the battle, he mind focusing on Vegeta's power. 'I hope you're all right, Vegeta'. She thought. Trunks wasn't doing too great, he couldn't catch up with Cell. He was much stronger than Cell, he just couldn't keep up with him.
"Oh Trunks, those muscles are slowing you down," She whispered. She floated down to the ground where the sword lay. It had been knocked from Trunks's hand at the beginning of the battle. "I won't let this monster hurt you, my son." She said, glancing over at Cell, who was dodging every punch Trunks threw at him. She opened her wings, lifting herself off the ground and headed for Cell. She put the sword away, her staff appearing in her hand instead. "Hey Cell!" She shouted, getting his attention. "Take this!!" She shouted as white power began to flow from the staff heading straight for Cell.
"What is this?!? Who is this woman?!?! How can she be so powerful?!?!" He demanded as the power washed over him.
"I am Serenity, Queen of the Universe, lost Princess of the planet Vegeta. I am a Saiyan, more powerful than any you have ever met." She said in a cold voice. Her long white hair grew in length, and began to float a little (not like when the guys go Super Saiyan). 'She really is powerful' Cell thought, as he managed to push the power away. Trunks stopped fighting, he had finally figured out why he couldn't catch Cell.
"I've failed," He muttered, his mother landing next to him. "Do what you like with me."
"And just where is Goku right now?" He asked.
"Why should we tell you that?" Serenity demanded, taking a step in front of Trunks.
"Because, your son's gonna get it if you don't tell me." Cell said menacingly.
"He's training right now. When he gets out, he's going to be more powerful than you can even imagine." Serenity said, her eyes narrowing.
"Hmm.." Cell said, scratching his chin. "Interesting.. what would you say to a tournament?" Cell asked.
"No deals!" Serenity said firmly. "There will be no tournament."
"I'm interested in fighting the very best on this planet. You have 18 days to prepare for this tournament," Cell said. "Keep an eye on the television." He stated as he flew off.
"Trunks, are you all right?" Serenity asked, turning to her son.
"I'm fine, mother. I've failed, though. I don't know why I didn't see it." He said, shame apparent on his face.
"It's all right Trunks. I'm very proud of you." Serenity said as she hugged her son.
"Huh? How can you be proud of me? I'm a failure!" Trunks snapped.
"No, you're not a failure. And don't let anything your father says get to you. You know he loves you, even if he won't admit it." Serenity said, as she took her son in her arms. The two of them flew together, heading for Kami's lookout.
"Serenity?" Vegeta asked, seeing the beautiful queen flying off with the lavender haired kid. "That little brat lost after all. I didn't really expect much from him." Vegeta said, crossing his arms over his chest. "Where did Cell go?" He asked, looking around the place. He took off after Trunks and Serenity, landing on Kami's lookout a few minutes after them.
"Vegeta?" Serenity asked, turning to see the form of her husband flying towards Kami's lookout. She ran to him, throwing her arms around his neck. "I was so worried." She cried, tears forming in the corner of her eyes.
"I'm fine woman!" He snapped pushing her away.
"How many times have I told you not to call me woman!!" Serenity yelled, her happiness turning to anger.
"Shuttup!" He snapped. He felt her fist connect with his face and he went flying back a few feet.
"Marital problems?" Bulma asked Trunks.
"Nah, just a little disagreement." He said, watching as his parents went at it (not like that you perverts!!).
"So, who's going in the room of spirits next?" Serenity asked.
"I am." Vegeta stated when Piccolo came out.
"I'm going with you." Serenity stated simply.
"What makes you think I want you in there?" Vegeta asked.
"I don't care if you don't want me in there, I'm going," Serenity stated simply. "Besides, I haven't really seen you for almost a year."
"Baka woman." He mumbled to himself low enough for only a Saiyan to hear.
"I heard that." Serenity said, glancing over her shoulder at her husband. She walked into the room, followed by a very stubborn Vegeta. The door closed and Serenity turned to her husband.
"What go you want woman?!" He demanded, seeing her staring at him. She gave him a sly look and grabbed his face, kissing him firmly on the lips.
"You'll know soon…" She said, her sly smile growing. He returned the look, following her into one of the rooms, leaving the door open.
"Take this!!" Serenity shouted, sending a rather large blast at her smirking husband.
"Pathetic," He commented, slapping it to the side. "You're really out of practice woman."
"Well you would be too if you were pregnant!" Serenity snapped. "That was nine long months without training and since Trunks was born I didn't have time to train so don't you give me that!"
"We're going to go back to the basics." Vegeta said, a look of annoyance on his face. Annoyance for the fact that she was so much weaker than she had previously been.
"Okay, what do we do first then?" Serenity asked, her soft white hair turning back to its golden blond color.
"How long have they been in there?" Trunks asked, as the day grew on.
"They've been in there for almost eighteen hours." Piccolo said, sitting Indian style on the ground, a look of concentration on his face. Trunks crossed his arms over his chest and continued to wait.
Serenity sent a huge blast of energy at Vegeta who dodged it easily.
"Is that all you've got?" Vegeta taunted and arrogant smirk on his face.
"I'm just warming up." She said, returning his smirk. She disappeared, reappearing right behind him. She sent her fist flying, but he disappeared just as her hand would have connected with his face. He reappeared behind her, pinning her arms to the side.
"Come on, you're stronger than that Serena!" Vegeta shouted, holding her arms.
"Yes I am." She said, her smirk growing. She closed her eyes, the crescent moon on her forehead glowing brightly as she called forth a strange power. The force of the power entering her body sent Vegeta flying about ten yards.
"Where did that come from?" He asked himself as he heard the screams of his wife echoing about the white abyss.
"Better dear?" She asked, her snow white hair floating around her face. The white aura around her vanished and her hair settled down, framing her beautiful face. He watched as she slowly approached, getting into a fighting stance. She disappeared but this time Vegeta couldn't sense her. 'where'd she go?' He asked himself, searching for her familiar ki.
"Come out woman!" He shouted not sensing her anywhere. His breath caught in his throat as he felt a fist bury itself deep in his gut. He looked up into her sea green eyes wondering how she did that. "Nice punch," He managed to say, rubbing his stomach. "You're finally showing your true power." He said as the pain in his stomach slowly began to fade.
"The door's opening!" Dende shouted, seeing the door slowly opening. In the doorway was the silhouette of a man with his muscled arms wrapped around a woman's tiny waist.
"Thanks Vegeta." She said as she kissed him passionately on the lips. Vegeta's smirk never left his face even after the kiss ended.
"Mother." Trunks said, approaching the blond woman.
"Trunks." She said smiling brightly at the form of her son in the future. She walked up to the boy, hugging his tightly.
"Serenity," Vegeta interrupted. "Go see your brother."
"Vegeta, I want to be with you." Serenity said.
"Just go, you're already stronger than me and you need to take a break before you have to fight again." Vegeta said, with his normal scowl on his face.
"All right, I'll go," Serenity said, hugging her husband. He pressed his lips against hers, seeking her tongue. She kissed him back, making Trunks look away. They pulled apart and Serenity turned to her future son. "You take care, I'll see you at the battle." She said, giving him a smile and her famous V. The crescent moon birthmark on her forehead began to glow and a white dress formed around her body. Real white wings stretched forth from her back, lifting her small form into the air. She blew Vegeta a kiss and waved to Trunks before flying away at an amazing speed.
"What's for dinner mom?" Gohan asked as he sat at the table with his father. His hair was a golden blond as was his father's.
"Here." She said, smiling lovingly down at her son as she placed a plate in front of him. He picked up the fork and began to eat at an amazing speed, not as fast as his father, of course. He picked up his glass and it shattered in his grasp.
"Umm.. sorry mom." He said, a sweatdrop appearing on his forehead.
"It's all right." ChiChi said, handing him another glass. A few minutes later, Goku's glass shattered.
"Umm.. sorry dear." He said nervously.
"That's the second glass!!" ChiChi shrieked. "If another glass is broken, the two of you are in for it!" The two looked nervous, but turned their attention back to the plates in front of them. There was a knock on the door and ChiChi stood up to answer it.
"ChiChi!" Serenity cried, hugging the dark-haired woman that answered the door.
"Serenity?" ChiChi asked, seeing the woman Queen before her. "It's great to see you, come on in your brother's eating dinner." ChiChi said, smiling warmly at her sister-in-law.
"I won't be able to get a word in til he's done then." Serenity commented dryly.
"Are you hungry Serenity?" ChiChi asked, leading her into the kitchen.
"Please ChiChi, just call me Serena. Serenity's too formal and besides, you're family." She said, smiling.
"All right, Serena." ChiChi said. Serenity and ChiChi sat at the table. Serenity had eaten a few hours before her and Vegeta had come out of the room of spirits, so she didn't eat too much.
"That was really good, ChiChi," Serenity said, smiling. "I wish I could cook. Even Rini won't eat my cooking." She said, pouting slightly. ChiChi just smiled.
"Where is Rini?" Gohan asked, thinking of the little girl with pink hair.
"She's in the past right now with Sailor Moon," Serenity explained. "It's safer for her there right now anyway."
"I thought you were Sailor Moon." Gohan commented.
"I was, in the past. Rini's gone to learn to be a Sailor Scout." Serenity explained.
"I get it," Gohan said. "Are you staying here tonight, Aunt Serena?" Gohan asked.
"I'm going to head over to Bulma's for Trunks. I miss my baby boy, I haven't seen him in a year." She said sadly.
"That's right, you just got out of the time chamber huh?" Goku asked and everyone noticed he had finally stopped eating. "What?" He asked when everyone looked at him.
Serenity opened her wings, heading for Bulma's. She wanted to see her baby so bad, she hadn't seen him in a year. She landed softly on the ground, her wings disappearing moments later. She slowly walked toward the door, knocking lightly. The family face of Dr. Briefs peered at her from behind the screen door.
"Serenity!" He cried, opening the door immediately. "It's been a while, how have you been your majesty?" He asked, bowing.
"Please don't do that," Serenity said, feeling uncomfortable. "I hate when people act so formal, I'm no different than anyone else. Oh, and please call me Serena." She said, smiling at the man.
"Are you here for that baby of yours?" He asked. Serenity smiled, shaking her head.
"I just want to see him, the big battle is still coming and I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask Bulma to watch him longer." Serenity explained.
"She won't mind, she treats him like her own child," Dr. Briefs said. "She's in the nursery with him." He explained pointing toward a hallway to the left.
"Thank you." She said, giving the man a hug before heading down the hallway. She walked through a doorway to see Trunks laughing on the floor while Bulma was turned upside down making faces at the baby. Serenity giggled at the sight of Bulma which caught her attention. Serenity walked over to the baby that immediately started to reach for her. She picked up the baby, cradling him against her tiny frame.
"Serena, you're back. Is everything all right?" Bulma asked.
"Yeah, there's still sixteen days until the Cell games will start. I wanted to see my baby before I had to go fight," Serenity said, smiling at the child. "Will you do me a favor?" Serenity asked, turning serious.
"Sure, what is it?" Bulma asked.
"If I don't make it through this battle, will you raise Trunks? I'm sure his father won't be around too much if I don't make it." Serenity said sadly. She knew Vegeta loved his son only he was too stubborn to admit it, and she knew that he would only want what's best for his son if something were to happen. Bulma was a little surprised at the request and stood dumbfounded, shaking her head slightly.
"All right, you do what ever you can to stay alive, though." Bulma said, fearing for her friend's safety. Serena was like a sister to her and she would be very upset if something were to happen to the Queen.
"Thank you," Serenity said, smiling still. "I'm going to take Trunks with me until the Cell games. I want to spend as much time as I can with him now if anything were to happen to me."
"Of course," Bulma said, smiling as she felt tears prick her eyes. Serena was talking like she wasn't going to make it through this battle and it really worried her. "I'll see you later then, Serena." Bulma said as she lead Serenity and Trunks to the front door. Serena gave Bulma a hug and turned toward the door, pushing it open. Her wings appeared on her back and she spread them, letting the wind catch in the feathers and lift her gently off the ground. She flew off toward Goku's, eager to see her brother again. She landed a few minutes later and found everyone outside and ChiChi was obviously very angry about something. With her, you could never tell what, though. Serenity had a rather large sweatdrop on her forehead as she approached her brother.
"What happened now?" Serenity asked, holding Trunks in her arms.
"We kinda broke a few glasses and tables." Goku said, a sweatdrop on his forehead. She saw that he was still Super Saiyan and instantly understood.
"That happens," Serenity said, the sweatdrop still there. "Where's my favorite nephew?" She asked, handing Trunks to Goku. She gave him a look that said 'if you hurt him, I'll kill you'. She walked around the house and found Gohan sitting under a tree, trying to block out his mother's yelling from inside the house. She plopped down by his side Goku following her. "How are you?" He peeked open one eye when he heard the familiar feminine voice.
"Serena!" He cried, wrapping his arms around her neck in a tight hug. She felt the air to her lungs being cut off and gently pushed him away.
"Not so hard, Gohan, I'm not Super Saiyan right now." She said smiling as she rubbed her now sore throat.
"I'm sorry Aunt Serena." He said, blushing slightly a sweatdrop on his forehead.
"It's all right, I'm glad to see you too Gohan." Serenity said smiling. ChiChi had heard the voices outside and peeked out the window seeing a white blur next to her son. She pushed the door open and saw the figure of Queen Serenity sitting next to Gohan.
"Serena?" She asked as she slowly made her way across the yard. Serenity smiled as she saw the dark haired woman coming toward her.
"ChiChi!" She cried, jumping to her feet. She ran to her sister-in-law, hugging her. "It's good to see you again."
"What do you mean, I didn't see you too long ago." ChiChi said, surprised at Serena's reaction. Serenity blushes slightly.
"I'm sorry, I just spent a year in the room of spirits and time so it seems like it's been forever since I've seen any of you," Serenity said as she slowly made her way toward Goku. Goku was bouncing Trunks up and down on his knee, making high pitched giggles come from the child. Serenity smiled but her smile turned to a frown when she heard a shrill scream that seemed to be getting farther away. She looked over at Goku to see that he no longer had Trunks in his arms and had a look of horror on his face as he looked up into the sky. "Trunks!!" She screamed as her wings appeared, lifting her in the air. Serenity caught up with the child easily and held him close to her body as he laughed and giggled. She landed on the ground next to ChiChi, her eyes narrowed on Goku.
"Umm… sorry… I guess I don't know my own strength some times." Goku said, a nervous sweatdrop on his forehead as he scratched the back of his head.
"I'll take care of this." Serenity said, handing ChiChi the baby. Serenity's hair turned white and her long white dress turned into the familiar white, Saiyan armor she knew so well with the sword strapped to her back. She drew the sword and attacked Goku, cutting the hair on one side of his head that stuck straight out. He managed to jump out of the way, looking slightly scared.
"I'm sorry, it was an accident," He said, a look of horror on his face as she brought down the sword heading straight for his chest. He squeezed his eyes shut and held out his hands. He was surprised to hear laughter and when he opened his eyes he saw Serenity rolling on the ground in laughter. He scratched his head trying to figure out what was so funny. Serenity's white armor faded back into the white dress with wings attached to the back and the sword that was laying a few feet away disappeared. He looked over at ChiChi who was stifling a laugh and then over at Gohan that was rolling on the ground in laughter next to Serenity. "What?" He asked, confused.
"Your hair." Serenity said still laughing. She managed to stand up, still giggling as she looked at him.
"What about it?" He asked.
"Go look in the mirror." Serenity said, stifling that last of her giggles. He went into the house and all they heard was Goku's yell.
