Radasha sat behind her home. There was the yard, which she was in, and two buildings to the left and right upon exiting the main house. One was for training and the other was guest house. The three bedrooms in her main house being taken be her, Kaula, and Acadova. So she needed a place for other people to stay whenever she got overnight visits. It was usually just family. Which is what two of the people she expected to be coming were.
Kaula and Toma had come to Vegeta's rescue alongside the swordswoman Maeve who wasn't even Saiyan. Radasha wasn't sure what brought them out here but she wasn't going to question it. In her eyes, even though the girl had fought against the SSE on Earth, she wasn't a traitor. Seemed she wasn't about to let her homeworld and fellow Saiyans be destroyed simply because she disagreed with things the SSE did. Seemed she held two homes in her heart, and would protect both. And Toma. He wasn't even raised on Vegeta. She was curious as to why he would help as well as Maeve who wasn't even remotely involved with Vegeta.
Well she could ask questions if and when they got here.
Kaula soared through the air, huffing out quietly as she made her way towards her mother's house. She didn't necessarily care if the others kept up with her - not that they could. She was, after all, considerably faster. They could also, pretty easily catch up with her by sensing her power, so she didn't care to wait around. The Saiyaness soon landed in the yard, smiling as her hair reverted and she returned to her base form.
"Heya mom!" was the first thing she said as she stuck her hands on her hips. Kaula had that little goofy grin as she started to walk across the yard towards the older Saiyan, adjusting the cape she had donned for a few seconds, "You totally saw me right? I was pretty awesome. Some weak people came to sit on my coattails, but I was totally awesome, right?" she asked as she started to chuckle a bit. Even in her base form, the Saiyaness seemed to be strong, sitting comfortably above two hundred and fifty thousand.
She brought a hand up, pushing the bangs out of her hair before she reached up to remove her goggles, pulling them back up her head and away from her eyes as she gave Radasha a quick wink.
Toma followed behind Kaula, not bothering to turn Super Saiyan in order to keep up. In fact, he was flying slower than he was capable. He was looking around, checking out the geography of the planet from high up in the sky. He saw grand cities bustling with life, covered in domes. He assumed they worked similarly to the Blutz Bans back on Earth. They blocked out Blutz Waves in order to prevent unwanted Oozaru. It made sense.
The rest of the planet however, was rather barren. He didn't really like it. He had always thought Vegeta was going to be some grand planet filled with life. Though, he supposed he had been naive. The harsh environment of Vegeta is what had caused the Saiyans to evolve the way they did.
He landed behind Kaula not too long after, bringing up a hand and waving to his family. "Hello, mother." He said, before turning to Kaula. "Kaula." He said, nodding. He was glad to see them, and glad to see that Kaula had rushed to stop Walker too. It gave him some hope that, maybe, she wasn't all bad.
Radasha's home sat overlooking the more, poor part of the city. It was a nice view actually if you sat on the walls surrounding the yard. Unlike the wastes outside, the Capital had plant-life growing. A large oasis in an otherwise apocalyptic desert. Efforts to restore the planet as much as they could. Of course it'd never be fully alive again most likely. Vegeta still sustained some form of life though, if the creatures lurking outside the city were any indication. Creatures suited for harsh life, like the Saiyans.
As her children approached, she waved. She chuckled at Kaula's words. "You're both strong. The swordswoman seems to have gotten stronger as well since our last encounter. Had a good spar against her when I first arrived on Earth." she said, smirking a bit. "She managed to beat me even though we were near equal power at the time....I think she relies too much on that sword though...maybe she'd let me teach her hand to hand if she doesn't leave the planet too soon." she suggested.
The two young Saiyans could probably smell food cooking, the scent wafting out from the main house. "Well you two are probably hungry...Acadovah prepared a meal for you all. Sort of a thank you gift for you all for saving everyone's asses." she said, laughing. "I might sit out for a bit to welcome Maeve if she decides to fly over as well."
"My sword is an extension of myself, I've held this very blade since I was but a whelp." The voice of the demoness could be heard as her form faded into existence. It seemed in her travel down to Radasha's home she managed to remove the bulky spacesuit leaving her in her equally bulky demonic armor. She stood before all three of them with her arms crossed and a soft pout on her lips. "I wouldn't dream of fighting without Fateburn." She said, almost defiantly at first. "Though, I fear reality tends to rear it's head more and more often lately so perhaps I'll take you up on that offer Radasha. If only to prepare for the worst possible scenario..." She said with a sigh.
"Though, what I'm more concerned about is... How is it possible that three of the saiyans I'm acquainted with are all related by blood? Is this realm really so small that I'd meet each of you at different intervals so easily?" She spoke with almost a laugh as she shook her head. "I came to spar with a... What I'd loosely call friend... Yet so far this trip has lead me to protecting a planet I should hold no ties with and the discovery that I've known the family of Kaula, the woman I have vowed to surpass, for quite some time now. It's been quite a strange visit so far." She said approaching them.
"It's good to see you again Radasha, despite our last meeting ending in a fight... It seems that's a trend for me when it comes to meeting new people." She said casting Kaula a bit of a smirk.
Kaula looked to Toma as he landed. She crossed her arms a little bit as she just sorta stared at him for a few moments. She eventually returned her gaze to her mother, relaxing a little bit. "But I'm way stronger. And I'm the only one who actually did anything." she stated, tilting her head upwards in a soft huff. Though, something did catch Kaula's attention. She let out a soft chuckle, shaking her head, "You lost to her?" she asked, noticing Maeve appear. "I beat her while I was sick. Was a breeze." the cocky saiyaness said, sticking her tongue out at Maeve.
She eventually moved to start heading towards the home. Or, rather, towards the smell of the food, "YOU BETTER HAVE MADE LOTS, GIANT! I'M HUNGRY!" the saiyaness proclaimed before she went to pound her stomach lightly with her fists. Such a befitting motion of a space monkey warrioress.
Toma watched as his family talked, and Maeve landed next to them. Radasha offered to help Maeve with her hand to hand Combat, and Kaula was over there being Kaula, bragging about her success. The only real thing Kaula had done was stun Walker to stop his blast. Which, while important, wasn't really anything to be super-proud of.
Though, so be it. A glory hog is a glory hog. Toma wasn't going to bother trying to correct her. Toma and Maeve's presence there was just as important as her own. They had pushed Walker over the edge, back into the realm of sanity. Had Toma and Maeve not shown up... Toma feared Walker most likely would have challenged Kaula, and gotten himself killed.
There was no doubt that Toma could smell the food cooking, and he smiled. It smelled odd, really. But delicious all the same. He had always wanted to try traditional Saiyan cooking. Now was probably the only chance he was ever going to get.
Toma couldn't help but chuckle when Maeve mentined how the three of them were related by blood. "You're telling me. I had no idea that I was related to Radasha or Kaula until about a month ago. Which reminds me, Maeve, I need to introduce you to my wife. I'm sure you two would get along great. As for that offer about hand to hand combat, if you'd like, I can show you a few things too."
He'd then walk up to Radasha after Kaula stormed off inside. He looked up at the house, wondering what could've been. Though, he was glad he had been sent away. He liked who he was. "Speaking of family, mom..." Toma began, before turning to her. "I've been wondering, who is my father? You mentioned him by name but that's all I know. Could you tell me about him?"
Radasha rolled her eyes at Kaula's cocky attitude. Same old Kaula. Boastful, arrogant, but Radasha still cared for the loud mouth Saiyan girl. When Kaula yelled into the house, a deep voice responded. "I didn't make it all for you pipsqueek, but there will be enough!" Radasha chuckled at that before turning to Toma as he asked about his father. "Well I could probably do one better and call him over." she said, making her way to the main house after Kaula. Inside the door Kaula was walking towards would be the dining area.
A short yellow, black spotted salamander-like alien was waddling around the table, setting plates and utensils. They looked up and blinked, speaking in a soft voice. They sounded female but...well being an amphibian creature it was...hard to tell by sight. "Oh! You must be Ms. Kaula, Lady Radasha's daughter. I'm her tech advisor, Banna....I...Actually do most the tech related stuff..Your mom's kind of a technophobe..." she said the last part low, but jumped as Radasha entered behind Kaula, eyebrow raised. "It's not my fault I don't like to rely on machines..." she grumbled, heading for her scouter. It was really the only piece of technology she used regularly, besides her pod, communication devices, and devices used to view news and media.
A large blue man with long white hair and a beard stepped out of the kitchen. His tusked mouth forming into a grin at Kaula as he carried a LARGE platter of meat into the dining room and set it on the table. "Hope it's enough for three Saiyan appetites plus us with normal stomachs." he said with a laugh. He then stepped back into the kitchen, followed by Banna. Probably to get the rest of the food.

Maeve's piercing glare towards the cocky saiyaness was interrupted as Toma spoke to her. She blinked, the feral slits of pupils that were forming in her eyes returned to their usual saucer-like shape as she turned to the young man. She mused over the thought of training with the two of them. She had yet to get a good look at Toma's ability but given his family ties she assumed he was a skilled fighter as well.
"I'm sure...I could learn a lot from you both..." She mused before taking a step towards the house. "Also, I'd be honored to meet your wife one day." She forced a smile despite her still boiling blood before escaping to the inside of the house like Kaula.
As she walked through the halls and tried to calm herself down: she questioned to herself why she was there. Kaula didn't seem too overly fond of her and she didn't know what to make of Toma just yet but oddly enough they seemed okay with her being there. Even Radasha was happy enough to provide a meal. While she didn't mind the kindness something still felt off to her. She expected to be the outsider but the strange feeling wasn't coming from that.
No, she felt like she was lying somehow. Like she was there under false pretenses...
That's when it hit her.
She remembered what Etoru had said, Bing and Zucceta were out in space and the reason for their meeting most certainly wasn't friendly. Was she so eager to come to this world because she was worried about him?
Perhaps she and Walker weren't so different.
With a soft little frown she'd approach the dining room. Though her frown couldn't linger at the smell of delicious grilled meat wafting in the air. She ended up standing beside Kaula as she looked to the decadent display. "Your mother certainly is generous. It's a shame none of that kindness rubbed off." She couldn't help but tease, knowing full well she was playing with fire.
"Jerk! It's all for me! I'm the strongest on the planet now! I can take what I want! I could.. Eat the house if I wanted!" the small saiyan said, her tail swaying lightly as she had finally entered the dining room. Her emerald eyes glanced upon the weird.. Lizard thing for a few seconds. Relative of Maeve? Maybe. I mean.. Lizards probably knew each other or something, right? With some weird lizard sense?
She blinked a few times before she went to shrug, "Well technology is weird. I don't really get it too much myself. But I don't hate it. My mom's just old, I guess." she said as she stuck her hands on her hips.
That's when she felt it. Something that made the hairs on her tail stand on end, her body shivering. It was as if something so colossally strong already in the galaxy just got str- Oh, no, the air conditioning just kicked on and she was standing beneath a vent. She glanced towards Maeve, puffing her cheeks out lightly at the teasing as she stared, "Psh. You're just mad because I'm better with a sword. 'side. I'm plenty kind. I share my home with someone back on Earth, thank you very much. Do you do that? Probably not." Kaula stated as she went to take a seat at the table.
(I really need to get back into the swing of posting. It feels like it's been forever.
Radasha offered to call Toma's father over to the home, and Toma smiled. He nodded, and placed his hand on his mothers shoulder. "Thank you, mother." He said, before looking at the house, and walking inside. "You're crazy if you think this is all for you, Kaula." He said, as he walked over to the table. Looking over the alien food for a few moments, he picked out a small piece of meat and plucked it into his mouth. He let out a satisfied humm, before chewing and swallowing. "My gosh! This is delicious!" He'd cry out, before taking another bite.
Unlike most Saiyans who ate with their hands and generally made a mess, Toma had actually learned manners growing up, unlike a certain sister of his. While he did agree her strength should be admired, he really wished she'd tone it down with how arrogant she was. Arrogance like that, he feared, was going to get her killed one day. Though that wasn't to say that there was something wrong with being confidant in her abilities. He just hoped that it wouldn't go to her head.
Kaula then spoke about how she was 'plenty kind' and about how she shared her house with someone on Earth. She then challenged Maeve to her kindness, and Toma sighed. "I too share a home with someone I care about. But is that not natural?" Toma asked. "Sharing ones home does not make you appear any kinder than the next person. And bragging about it simply makes you look like a spoiled brat, Kaula. Especially in front of a guest in your own home."
Sure, Toma knew he was shaking the hornets nest with the comment he made. But he hoped Kaula would learn from it.
Radasha chuckled a bit as the others talked. She responded to Maeve first. "Well Toma and Kaula are family so I would let them into my home regardless....And I suppose I could count you as a friend...or at least a good sparring partner. And you all did drive Walker off from his insane plan so it'd be awfully poor manners if I DIDN'T invite you all over." she said, scouter in hand now as she sat at the table, placing the device over her ear. She dialed in a frequency as she continued talking. " And yes, Kaula is spoiled. I'm honestly not sure where she gets it from...Probably her father...Or just Saiyan genetics....Probably the latter..we're an arrogant lot..." she said with a laugh.
"Though..." she continued, "We do have the power to back it up most the time. It's only due to the few of Earth's finest warriors that the SSE didn't completely steamroll it's forces. From a moral standpoint, Walker's actions would've been horrible. Killing hundreds, thousands of innocent lives. There are not only Saiyans on this world" she said, glancing at Banna as she came into the room with a couple large bowls. She seemed to be struggling a bit with them, obviously not being a strong creature. Radasha stood up to take one from her so she'd have both hands to hold the remaining one. "Um, thanks Ms. Flahwur." she said meekly. Acadovah followed behind with more bowls of the same food. Seemed to be some sort of vegetables...and one bowl with what appeared to be legs of some sort of crustacean. With that done, the older woman took her seat again and finished what she was saying, "But from a tactical standpoint it would've severely wounded us. Of course since our strongest people aren't on world right now, it wouldn't have been a complete victory. And he most likely would've cost Earth one of it's stronger allies..." she said, glancing at Kaula.
With that, she continued adjusting her scouter, eventually getting what she wanted. She'd speak again after a moment, this time to whoever she was using the scouter to hail. "Ragus?...Dammit Azpra put Ragus on....Because if you don't I'll have to get up from my table while eating with friends and family and you won't like what happens when I arrive..." she growled, tapping her finger on the table. She glanced up at everyone else and mouthed the word 'Sorry' as she waited.

"In the demon realm it is less likely than you'd think that someone would open their home to someone not of their clan." Maeve said looking to Toma. "So to me, it does seem quite charitable of your sister to open her home to another." Maeve said looking to Kaula with a surprising amount of respect despite her childish tone. "And for your information 'princess' I do share a home on Earth with others... A few farmers in the southern continent opened their home to me and I've repaid that kindness through hard work. I couldn't really ask for a better 'family' of sorts..." Maeve said looking down to her food.
"Though if what your mother says is true about you being spoiled: hard work might not have much value to one such as yourself." Maeve returned fire suddenly as she slipped a succulent piece of the alien cusine in her mouth. She chewed on it a bit, swallowed, and let out a content sigh. "I'm inclined to believe it too... For when we sparred in the tournament I managed to land more hits on you than any other contestant despite the overwhelming strength advantage. Your skill with the blade could certainly use some of that hard work." She said without looking to Kaula merely slipping another piece of meat into her mouth.
"That is very delicious, thank you once more Radasha and my compliments to whoever cooked such a meal." She said with a sweet smile despite her overwhelmingly catty remarks towards her rival.
She looked over to Radasha next, her golden eyes analyzing the matriarch as she reflected on her words about Walker. "Also, Radasha if I may... Walker's intentions didn't seem strategically based. He was acting out of spite for your queen. Besides...Even if it were strategically sound to cripple an enemies home I couldn't imagine doing something like that. If I saw lives as nothing but tools of war I'd be no better than my mother or my father...I mean, there's a reason I was banished to the Mortal Realm..."
She gave an awkward little grin before going back to her food.
Kaula took herself a heaping saiyan sized helping of the food, proceeding to start shoveling some of the veggies into her mouth almost immediately! She hadn't eaten a single thing the whole ride here! Still, what could someone expect from a Saiyan. Huge appetites are their thing, after all. Of course she wasn't going to dignify Toma's jab with a response. Or retaliation. That was below her, after all. He was, after all, weak in her eyes and she had nothing to prove.
However, when Maeve started to spit verbal fire, Kaula took offense. A single hand rose, a finger raised as she gulped down the last of her food. "Excuuuuse me." she said as she rolled her head lazily to glance towards Maeve. "I will have you know, I was seasick the entire fight. I did not like boats. I do not like boats. I will never like boats. Moving on I still kicked your ass." the Saiyan said sassily as she reached for one of the crustacean legs, taking a noisy chomp of it when it neared the danger zone (for food) that was her mouth.
"And. For someone who's sword is her whole life or whotever, yooooou." she said, pointing the leg at the demoness, "Yoooou. Have a lot more to learn yourself. Such.. A.. Basic understanding. And nothing more."
And so Kaula ignored his comment about her rudeness, and Toma couldn't help but chuckle some. He had half expected a reply, but she thought herself so far above him that she ignored him. He supposed he should have expected that.
It was strange, seeing Kaula and Radasha in the same room. Kaula's personality and actions annoyed him to no end, but Radasha... Radasha was alright. He could see himself getting along much better with his mother than with his sister. Though, he supposed that made sense. Siblings were supposed to fight, after all. It was only natural.
Though, in the back of his mind, that made Toma dread the coming years for his own twin children. He could only imagine what kind of bickering they might get into as children and teenagers. Luckily right now all he had to deal with were a couple of infants who cried every now and then.
Then he saw his mother fumbling with a scouter, which he could only assume functioned like a phone on Vegeta. She mentioned the name Ragus, and Toma raised an eyebrow. Was that his fathers name? Most likely.
He chuckled as Kaula and Maeve argued, and decided not to get involved. So in the meantime he continued to eat his food, deciding to watch the whole situation pass.
