Gift Between Friends

Lila and I walk back to the ship, her holding three of the Black Star Balls in her hands whilst I hold four.

"So your race has an ability to get stronger after being near death?" Lila asks.

"Mhm." I hummed as I nodded my head. "Mostly. After healing from near death, a Saiyan's Zenkai draws out your latent potential and brings it to the surface."

"Okay, but why make yourself ageless? If anything, it's a potential problem, not a cellular problem." She said.

She was asking because of my earlier wish. The one that essentially made me stop aging.

Well, eventually.

The cells needed for my Zenkai boosts have been renewed, but I had it to where the full process of my eventual halted aging didn't happen until I hit my prime.

Which will probably be in my early or late twenties.

"It would be if I didn't know my potential wasn't the problem." I replied.

"I would say that you're awfully full of yourself if you weren't the second strongest person I've ever met..." She said, looking at me with slight annoyance.

"Who's the first?" I asked, looking back at her with a raised eyebrow.

"Don't worry about that..." She muttered softly.

From the looks on her, it looks like just thinking about this guy had given her goosebumps.

"Was it an ex-lover of yours or something?" I asked, raising a curious brow.

"What?" She asked, looking up at me with a stunned expression.

"The way you got goosebumps just by thinking about this guy means you've either had a very pleasant memory or a very bad one." I said with a shrug. "I went with the former."

"No! Oh my- I think I'm gonna puke..." She said, looking particularly green.

"Hey, I'm not judging. I would imagine after a couple million years that you Kais would start to get a little freaky deaky." I said with a joking tone.

"Please... Please stop..." She groaned before suddenly stopping in her tracks. "I've actually... never..."

I turn to face her and saw that her face suddenly turned a deep shade of red.

"Really?" I asked, a little surprised. "Huh... Well that's surprising..."

I continued on my way without so much as a second thought. I'm honestly surprised that I didn't see that coming from a mile away.

A hot million year old virgin. As far as anime clichés go, that one was pretty up there. Along with its counterpart, the woman who looks like a child but is really thousands of years old.

Who's usually also a virgin, funnily enough.

"And how's that so surprising?!" She asked with clear offense to my statement as she rushed over to my side.

"I don't know. I just didn't expect it." I said with a shrug. "You're beautiful. Almost ethereally so. I just assumed someone would have noticed."

It wasn't just a blatant flirt, although I was flirting. She was genuinely beautiful. But there's just this air about her that I couldn't really explain. It's like I was looking at royalty.

Though I suppose that doesn't really make sense since Vegeta's mother never really gave me the same impression as Lila.

It's hard to explain.

"Oh..." She murmurs under her breath, facing towards the ground.

Looking at her, I could see that her ears were turning red.

I shake my head and chuckle, facing forward and seeing the cave directly in front of us.

"We're back." I told her.

Lila looked up and saw the cave, acknowledging my words with a hum.

We entered and immediately stepped into the ship, placing the Black Star Dragon Balls in the storage compartment that Lila had placed them in previously.

Seems that was the designated area for them now.

"I'm gonna go ahead and head back to Namek. You wanna come?" I asked, turning towards Lila, seeing that she was now sitting on her bed.

"No, I'm good. Thank you." She replied.

Her soft spoken tone caused me a bit of confusion, but I shrug it off and teleported myself to Namek without much pause.


I arrive in front of Grand Elder Guru's house, hearing the sounds of multiple loud voices coming from within.

Intrigued, I step inside and see about a dozen Namekians, all of which looked as though they were about to burst into tears at any moment. Some of them actually were crying.

They were all gathered next to what looked to be an absolute unit of a Namekian. And when I say that, I mean it. The guy was absolutely massive.

"Grand Elder... It's a miracle!" One of the Namekians shouted as he struggled to wipe away his tears fast enough.

"Oh, I don't think that it was." The unit said with a smile, his eyes immediately zeroing in on me.

All the Namekians turned and saw me standing there. I admit, it felt a bit awkward to suddenly be the center of attention, but I shake it off well enough.

"Sup." I greeted, leaning against the wall giving them all a one-handed salute.

"Is it true? Was it really you that made this happen?" A Namekian asked as he pushed through the crowd, revealing Stropo to be the one who had asked the question.

"More or less." I replied simply.

Besides making myself ageless, I also asked Bahamut to revert Guru's body back to its prime. I would like to say that it was out of the goodness of my heart or whatever, but I just really wanted my potential awakened.

Stropo stepped up to me, his eyes locked with mine before he suddenly kneeled down and took my hand.

"Thank you... Thank you so much for this gift you have given us..." He said as pools of tears started to fill his eyes.

"It really wasn't any-- Jesus Christ, you're strong..."

I tried to pull my hand away from him, but he was latched on like a stubborn Anaconda. Seems there are two kinds of people that can just absolutely fuck the power scaling.

Mothers and people who are grateful.

"Young Zyleth, step forward please." Guru says, motioning for me to stand beside him.

Hearing this, Stropo finally lets go of my hand, allowing me to head towards the Grand Elder. I walk towards him, passing by the very grateful and emotional Namekians who were all thanking me profusely.

"I suppose that my newfound physical fitness means that you were successful in creating your own Dragon Balls?" Guru asks, causing everyone to start whispering amongst themselves.

Though I say whispering, I could clearly hear each and everyone of them. They were not that good at it.

"He created his own Dragon Balls?" One of them asks.

"I thought no one else but our Dragon Clan were able to do this..." Another one says.

"I heard that he came here only hours ago. How could he have created his own set of Dragon Balls in such a short time?" Asks another.


A lot of damn cheats.

"I was indeed." I nodded my head. "I created my own set that deemed the Black Star Dragon Balls."

"I see." Guru nodded with a pleased expression. "May I ask what name you have given your dragon?"

"Bahamut." I answered.

"Bahamut..." Guru repeated, his face thoughtful before smiling softly. "A fine name."

"Black Star Dragon Balls?" I heard someone mutter from behind me.

"Did he say Bahamut? Weird name for a dragon..." Another said.

"He's a Saiyan. It's probably something taken from their own legends or something..." Another theorized.

Okay, the gab gallery behind us is starting to get old...

"Young Zyleth, on behalf of my children and myself, I thank you for the gift of life you have given me." Guru says, kneeling down on one knee.

Christ, even on his knees this man was still taller than me...

The other Namekians see their Grand Elder kneeling before me and instantly follow suit, kneeling down in thanks.

This should not feel as good as it does...

"Come on, you don't have to do that." I said, patting the big man's shoulder. "It's just a gift between friends."

Guru looks up with widened eyes, staring at me for a moment before smiling and nodding his head.

"Yes, a gift between friends..." He mutters.

He stands up and suddenly grabs my head. I feel something inside me getting pulled out to the surface, the process of which causes me to feel almost invincible. I can feel my power growing higher and higher, it's growth absolutely monstrous compared to just seconds ago.

The sudden shift in my power causes every single Namekian close by to step back, their eyes widening in absolute shock.

Eventually, the growth slows and Guru removes his hand, which causes me to fall on my hands and knees.

"How do you feel?" Guru asks, a little out of breath.

I don't respond right away, still stunned by the experience. Eventually, after a few more moments, I come back to reality.

I open my eyes and my dark aura immediately bursts from my body, which instantly causes a strong gust of wind to blow. All the Namekians surrounding me held their arms up, trying desperately not to get blown into the walls by the force of my newfound power alone.

The wind dies down and I stand, looking at my hand in absolute astonishment.

"This is... amazing..." I muttered.

I look up at him gratefully, giving him a thankful smile.

"A gift between friends." Guru says, placing his hand on my shoulder before turning his attention towards the group of Namekians. "My children, from today onward till the end of time, I deem Zyleth to be "dneirf devoleB!" Friend to the Namekian people!"
