This is where it all began. This is how Serena and Vegeta met in the first place.
"Get up little girl!" He ordered. She did as she was told and stood up, dusting herself off.
"You could have at least helped me up, you know." Princess Serena said, pulling her hood back up. It had fallen off when she fell.
"Why should I? You ran into me remember?" The man said. He was short, but he was obviously very strong. The muscles in his arms were bulging and he wore this really weird armor. He had black hair that was spiked up straight on his head. He looked really mean, but Princess Serena wasn't afraid of him.
"Still, it's the polite thing to do!" Princess Serena said, crossing her arms across her chest.
"Who ever said I was polite?" He shot back. She just couldn't win. For every comment she said, he had one that he shot right back at her. "Who are you supposed to be anyway?" He asked, seeing the white skirt hanging below the cloak.
"My name is Princess Serena. I thought everyone knew that." She said.
"I'm not from around here." He said, turning in the other direction, he took off into the air.
"Wait!" She cried, trying to keep up with him on the ground. "You have to help me! Please!"
He stopped flying and glared down at her. "What should I help you?" He demanded.
"Please, I can't let Prince Darien find me. I left the palace because I was miserable. I have to get out of here." She said, trying to get him to listen.
"What do I get out of it?" He asked. She didn't know what to say. That's when she pulled out her star locket, the one her mother had given to her.
"This is all I have." She said holding it up. "It's gold, but it's all I have."
"Hmm? It isn't much. Give me a night to think about it." He said.
"I don't have a night. I have to go now, before they find me." She said. "Please!" Tears came to her eyes as she thought about what it would be like if they found her. That's when she heard the voices.
"Princess Serena!" It was Prince Darien's voice.
"It's Darien!" She cried out. "Please!"
"All right." He said reluctantly. He flew down and scooped her up, holding her like a baby. Prince Darien came into view and he saw another man with his fiancée.
"Stop!" He yelled, but the man with the Princess just flew faster. "Bring her back!"
The man didn't even look back, he kept flying. They finally came to a space ship, it was small, but they would both fit. He climbed in and took her hand, balancing her.
"Sit down and buckle up." He ordered. The Princess did as she was told. Just then, the Prince and several guards caught up to him. The man closed the door and hit a few buttons. Princess Serena watched as Prince Darien tried to get into the ship. She looked out the window at him with no emotion on her face. The space ship began to rumble and it blasted off into the night sky.
The Next Day...
"Any sign of the Princess?" Queen Serenity asked a tired guard. They had been out all night, and Prince Darien had never returned. She just figured he wasn't going to give up until he found her. She had heard of their engagement and she thought that the Princess would have been delighted. But Princess Serena was a good actress. No one, not even her own mother, knew that she didn't want to marry Prince Darien.
"Queen Serenity!" A voice came over a radio in the room. "Queen Serenity are you there?"
It was Prince Darien's voice.
"Darien! Have you found her?" Queen Serenity asked, pleading with her voice that it was good news.
"I found her, but she's been kidnapped." He said. "I've been trying to get hold of you for hours, but no one picked up."
