This is where it all began. This is how Serena and Vegeta met in the first place.
"Come on!" Guru yelled running towards the last village. Serena followed him, their clothes were tattered and Serena's hair was a mess. Neither of them cared, they were both going to go home.
"We're almost there!" Princess Serena cried. A few minutes later, they entered the village. The elder Namic of the town came out to greet them. He had heard of the young woman that seeked the Dragon Balls.
"So, you are the Princess searching for the Dragon Balls?" He asked, eyeing her suspiciously, the bag on her back was bulging. It held four of the Dragon Balls. Guru's bag held two Dragon Balls and all of their food. They both set the bags down and bowed before the elder Namic.
"Yes, I am her." Princess Serena said, suddenly becoming serious.
"You have succeeded in collecting six of the seven, is that correct?" He asked.
"Yes sir, that is correct." She said. He placed his hand on her forehead and felt the good in her. He walked into one of the houses and came out, holding the seventh Dragon Ball. He walked up to her and placed it in her hands.
"You have a pure heart, good intentions, and you deserve this gift." He said. A happy smile spread across Princess Serena's face.
"Don't worry mother, you'll be coming home soon." She said, looking up into the sky. Tears were forming in her eyes as the two of them walked outside of the village. "Where are we going?" She asked.
"I don't want to call forth the dragon in a village, it wouldn't be good at all." He said. They stopped a few feet after that and took the Dragon Balls out of the bag, placing them in a circle with one of them in the center.
"Before you call the dragon, I have a gift for you." She said, taking the locket from around her neck. It wasn't the musical one, she had given that one to Prince Vegeta. It was one her mother had given to her as a gift. She had taken a Polaroid of them and placed it over the picture of her and her mother. On the other side, there was a picture of her dressed like a Princess. "This is for you." She said, handing him the small locket. "To remember me by."
"Thank you, Princess." He said respectfully, he had never called her 'Princess' before. She had told him to call her Serena the first day they had met. He clasped the necklace around his neck and called the dragon. He used his native language to call the dragon. He knew what the first two wishes were and made them, before asking her the third.
"Well." She said thinking about it. "I know what it is. The wish is to send me, Prince Vegeta, and my mother to the Moon Kingdom."
He made the wish and she began to fade. Before she was gone, she kissed him on the forehead. "Thank you for your kindness." She said, disappearing right before his eyes.
A light blinded Princess Serena and when it cleared, she was outside of the palace.
"I'm home." She said, walking into the palace. She walked through the palace, searching for her mother and Prince Vegeta. "Hello!" She called, her voice echoed through the palace. "Is anybody here?"
"Serena?" A voice said. "Is that you?"
"Mother? Where are you?" She said, searching for her mother. She walked into her mother's room and saw her sitting on the edge of her bed. When she saw Princess Serena enter the room, she stood up and ran to her daughter, throwing her arms around her.
"My darling." She said, tears streaming down her face. "I missed you so much."
"I missed you, mother." Princess Serena said, the tears were flowing free.
"Thank you my dear, but there's someone that would like to see you." She said, breaking away from her.
"Huh?" Serena asked. "Who?"
"He's in your room." She said, a smile slowly spread across her face. Princess Serena turned and ran to her bedroom, throwing open the door. But she never expected to see who she saw.
