Arias sat in the house, sitting on her bed. Her entire body was still sore from Celmaru injuring her, and the bruises all over her skin were still evident, along with the way she moved, sure, she had healed in terms of broken bones and other things, but her pride was badly wounded. To the point now she just laid in her room, on her bed, not speaking to anyone. She shut everything out, everyone out. Her pride was a big thing to her, and it had finally shattered like glass making her feel insecure, weak, and stupid.
Arias wasn't eating much either, thus was a bit skinnier than normal. Her behavior was much different than normal, and she had been seized by a fit of depression she simply couldn't snap out of. Celmaru had broken the warrior, literally shattered her pride into so many pieces it might never repair. She stays silent as she hears multiple footsteps, knowing it was probably Presto or Daika stomping around the house like always.
Her stomach didn't hurt, her hunger didn't show. For a Saiyan who was pregnant, she should be eating a lot more, but wasn't eating much, if at all. Something weird had happened to her, and she became much less driven, losing every aspect of her proud, brash persona. She was always depressed, her voice blank and monotonous, whenever she spoke. This wasn't good for the twins, they were being deprived of things they needed and Arias was simply getting weaker. She, just didn't have a drive anymore.
The Albino Saiyan was calmly meditating outside the house. Today’s events had been quite distressing emotionally, and Daika decided that some meditation might do some good to calm himself down. He could feel the Ki signatures of Presto and Arias inside the house, along with the twins. He was happy that the family was finally back together. Arias herself seemed to be throwing some kind of tantrum, and had refused to eat or drink anything, instead choosing to stay inside their room. He had tried everything he could think of to try and get her out, but to no avail.
Saiyans valued their pride over almost everything else. It was a trait that Daika himself had, of course, but his was not as… extreme, as the average Saiyan. The Albino found other Saiyans obsession with it quite strange and confusing. Why value something that can easily be broken so much? Pride was a great weakness to those who let it control them. He decided that he should probably go back inside to check and see if Arias was alright. She said that she had been hurt by Celmaru in some kind of fight, which made him somewhat angry, but he could see why the Hybrid could have done such a thing.
PL: 21,767 Heavy Weights equipped! Weighted PL: 5,441 @Majin Presto
The two saiyans may have been in separate rooms venting or preying, anything else that came to mind, though their daughter, the majin named Presto had other things to attend to. It was apart of the simple fact that her prediction was right about Arias not disappearing for long, but it was also about the fact that she was here to begin with, so early.
Presto had been in the kitchen of the house her mother had making something for Arias all on her own. It had been a few hours since Presto had gone shopping for a few specific ingredients- for specific breakfast- for a specific someone-, that someone being the fated mother of the majin, Arias. Presto had gotten everything she thought she would need, eggs...pancake batter...orange juice...chocolate chips and of course blueberries. Presto was preparing a the ultimate breakfast for the ultimate mother.
The majin smiled looking at the line of her gathered ingredients and everything she needed to make this breakfast perfect, she wouldn't use her magic to make this perfect, oh no no no...she would make this breakfast from scratch. Presto thought back to the time before she had the consciousness to think how she did to this day, back when she first landed on earth.
Presto remembered that she herself did actually have a knack for cooking..or at least wanted to. She remembered it like it was yesterday, sitting in that abandoned house watching the television, learning those few things about human culture. Of course the one thing to forever stick in her mind was cooking channel, food everywhere...it was a majins sensual dream. Presto smirked before rolling her neck and clapping her hands together.
Presto said with a wide smile before she began to make her mother the breakfast of a lifetime. Unlike most situations where the underdog of this situation would probably fail in being able to create the desired meal Presto had actually been able to do so.
Presto had the basic knowledge of an expert cook, all she needed was the ingredients...which she had. It would be too long now before she was done, she of course only had one more ingredient to add....Love. Presto at first didn't understand what people meant when they said "love is the most important ingredient" but it was quite clear now.
Presto had finished the dish and set it on a plate that one could eat from while in bed. The plate had a total of 5 pancakes on it, the steam flew from it and you could smell the chocolate chips and blueberries within the pancakes, it didn't even NEED syrup but she still added it for texture, along with butter and a for on top. Next to the pancakes were two eggs that were firmly cooked to perfection, the yolk in the middle of the white egg shined like the sun itself.
On a another plate would be two pieces of well done cooked sausages, the flavor was nearly pouring out of it. Presto smiled at the dish, and completed it with a cup of the finest homemade orange juice...without pulp of course. "Mum is gonna love this!"
The girl says excitedly. Presto then moves to bring the dish to Aries when she spots Daika. She only winks at him as she moves to go into Arias' room before he does. "Mum! I got you breakfast!" she says in a light whisper carrying it over to the Saiyan.
"well...more like made you breakfast! and don't worry I didn't forget the most important ingrediant...love~"
Post by Celmaru Waterfield on Apr 9, 2016 22:22:02 GMT
A certain hybrid was concerned over a friend of his, specifically how he had so swiftly done her in a day or so ago. The hybrid sliced through the sky, leaving behind a significant trail of his own Ki as he flew directly above the Bamboo Forest. Several stalks of bamboo shot up towards the sky, poking out from the trees that enveloped them. Meanwhile, the hybrid's partner, the seaweed woman Phae Waterfield clutched to her husband's shoulders, unable to truly draw from her original strength to grasp the hybrid firmly.
"Celmaru....please slow down..."
"What was that?"
"Please slow down!"
The hybrid warrior Celmaru Waterfield eased back on his Ki output, slowing down significantly for his wife. The wind created from the immense velocity died down as their flight decelerated to a mere float. Celmaru simply turned his head towards his wife, making sure she was secured upon his back. The hybrid continued his flight as he spoke to Phae, a hint of concern within his voice.
"Are you alright? Are you secure?"
"I'm fine Celmaru...your power has increased more swiftly than I imagined...and my physical body cannot truly keep up with you..."
"Don't worry, I can give you time....we're not in any immediate danger."
Phae nestled upon her husband's nape, silently thanking him for his genuine concern. However, a similar sight began to take shape before the couple; a red soil home, one that could only be found on Planet Vegeta. The home of Arias and Daika became greater and greater in size as they slowly approached the home. The building itself stood out for miles, however the location could be rather appealing to some. Phae tightly secured her hands upon Celmaru's shoulders as he began to descend towards the home, a sense of guilt beginning to build within the hybrid. The last time Celmaru had met with Arias, he had nearly murdered her from the rage he felt to defend Daika's name and emotions. A mysterious magical bean had saved her life, however the guilt never passed. The hybrid noticed a figure resting atop the roof of the shelter; an albino figure. Daika was seemingly meditation atop his own home, and the hybrid decided to not bother the Saiyan, and landed upon the earthen soil.
"I'm sure they'll allow you to explain, Celmaru."
"...Would a brash Saiyan listen for cries of mercy near a battle's end?"
"Arias and Daika are different, I'm sure they'll listen."
The hybrid noticed another Ki signature within the home; that of an immature, bubbly, and possibly addicted signature. Celmaru was suddenly wary of who else might have entered the Saiyans' home, but despite that, the door was knocked upon swiftly and surely. The brief knocking upon the Saiyaness' door would surely notify anyone nearby of his presence, Ki sensing or not. Clearing his throat, Celmaru spoke aloud.
"Arias? I've....er...come to apologize. I do hope this isn't an unfortunate time for you."
As the hybrid lowered his hand to its respective side, he noticed a fraction of a familiar energy. That Ki signature was one that the hybrid hadn't sensed in approximately a month; Walker. Celmaru's eyes widened upon sensing the minuscule energy of his mentor, and frantically surveyed the area, hoping that he would see the giant tree-man once more. Unfortunately, Celmaru saw nothing, and shook his head dismissively as he awaited a response from those within the home.
Second thread with no Training Weights! PL is 196,430! Phae's PL [25% Celmaru]: 49,107!
As Celmaru approached the house, another Power Level began approaching as well. The tall, wooden form of Bastion came flying through the air, looking immensely frantic and puffing with exertion as he slowed down, hovering just over the house near Celmaru and looking about. "Celmaru, sir!" He waved to the half Saiyan, settling down to the ground. Then, he paused, and looked over. "Err... Presto, Arias, Daika? I think you need to come outside." He looked more than a little worked up, and his energy was fluctuating wildly. As he looked upwards, he called out once more. "So.... I may have mentioned my father, yes?"
Above them, a slight shimmer began to appear in the air, as if some sort of heat wave was being pressed through from an unknown point. A little snap of electricity arced through it, and Bastion rubbed his face for a moment. He still hadn't figured out how to explain his burgeoning relationship with Presto to his father. Even more bizarre, he was in love with the adopted daughter of Celmaru's students, and some SSE renegades. His life had gotten extremely bizarre in the past few weeks, and he was a little nervous about how to put it to his dad.
As it struck him that he was thinking of his "Father" as "Dad' for the first time, the shimmer suddenly increased. Then, with a dramatic tearing noise, it happened. A large, zig-zag gash tore open in the sky, at least 10 meters long. It snapped wider, a gout of hot air and smoke pouring out of it, and a massive black hand slammed into the side, holding onto the edge as the other side was gripped by an equally large fist. With a push, the two sides were pushed fully open, reality bending like a curtain, and the full form of the intruder from outside the world was revealed.
He was wearing long, baggy pants, and normally would have had a long robe on. However, at the moment, he was wearing nothing else, his purple eyes staring outwards, and a small golden halo hovering over his head. He moved outwards, leaving the hole behind him, and gestured dismissively. The rift snapped shut, air returning to normal, and as it did, Walker reached upwards. His hand closed around the halo, and with a single, decisive clench, it shattered into uncountable fragments, the air filled with a slight mist of energy for a moment. He exhaled, looking upwards for a second, and slowly cracked his neck, before looking down at those below. "Hello there, Celmaru, Bastion. I'm back."
His power was easily felt by anyone with even basic Ki sense. It wasn't that much higher than Celmaru's in Super Saiyan, now, but there was something lurking beneath the current power. Celmaru could likely tell something was different, and from Bastion's excited laugh, he could as well. "Welcome back... dad." The tree looked up at the other, and gulped slightly. "Uh, so... I have to introduce you to someone."
Walker snorted, and Bastion froze, a blush appearing on his face as the Bio-Golem looked down, head tilted. "I assume it would be that Majin girl you were snogging?" Bastion, now glowing like a green spotlight, devolved into incoherent babbling as he covered his face, and Walker turned to look at Celmaru. "Reunions and dating sons aside... it is good you have gotten stronger. " He wanted to explain the situation, but not just yet. There was other things to do first. He hadn't seen his friend in a long time, after all. "I am sorry if I worried you, my friend. How have you been?"
Arias was laying in her room, powerful waves of depression rolling off the Saiyaness, the pheromones she gave off were not much of help, and her room door had been shut and she had definitely gotten weaker, and slightly skinnier. Arias didn't have much energy anymore, and was pretty much dead inside. She knew she should probably eat, but felt nothing besides a crazed fit of despair. Her mental walls were breaking down, slowly being melted into the pool of insanity. Regardless of what anyone tried to do, she only sunk further into this insane, wild depression.
She heard someone banging around in the kitchen, and with a sigh recognized Presto doing something. She did indeed love her daughter, but she didn't want anyone to see her slow descent into insanity. Sure, she was playing it cool and simply blaming it on hormones, but insanity repeatedly reared its ugly head. She was trapped in the belly of the beast, and was slowly being digested by it. Regardless, she was depressed pretty badly.
She sits up when Presto opens the door, and she smelled the food which almost made her want to throw up, her stomach did a somersault and Arias reeled from it, but not throwing up, she shakes her head to clear it and smiled weakly at her daughter, showing nothing in her eyes. The only thing that she did show was love. She takes the tray from her daughter, and sets it on her lap before hugging Presto gently and letting go of her. "Thank you." The Saiyaness replied. She then looked at the fork, picking it up and starting to eat it. She quickly devours the entire thing, leaving pretty much nothing in her wake once she tastes the food.
Arias belched slightly. putting her tail over her stomach, groaning as it had hit the spot and also filled the Saiyaness full of food. In turn, that made her incredibly sleepy, until she sensed the massive energy and almost hid under the bed. Her eyes looked out the window as she walked over to it, looking out the window searching for the energy, her heart pounding as she nearly swore. COME ON, WHY IS EVERYONE STRONGER THAN ME? Arias fell further into the fit of despair.
And yet again, she sensed Celmaru and Phae and a vein appeared atop her head as she heard the Saiyan knock on the door. Her anger burned, causing her to throw the front door open, her eyes ablaze as she literally exploded in a fit of verbal screaming at Celmaru. "WHAT THE HELL DO YOU WANT NOW? COME TO KILL ME LIKE YOU WANTED TO? DO YOU HAVE YOUR WALKER FRIEND THIS TIME TO STOP YOU LIKE YOU SAID I BETTER HOPE HE CRAWLS OUT OF HELL FROM? LISTEN HERE BUDDY, YOU AREN'T EXACTLY ON MY NICE LIST RIGHT NOW. SO WHY IN THE NAME OF PLANET VEGETA DID YOU COME HERE?! And you better have a damn good answer." Arias' last phrase was laced with an angry venom, her ki aura flaring high, along with the insanity lurking behind her eyes.
He opened one of his eyes as he detected two familiar ki signatures approaching. His sight was graced with the figures of both Phae and Celmaru. He knew that this wouldn’t probably go too well because of the beat-down Cel had dished out on her earlier. He was a bit angry that Cel went to such drastic measures, but it wasn’t like he could do anything about it. He listened as Arias opened the door when the couple approached and began to scream at him. God dammit Arias… He got up from his sitting position and floated down to the doorway.
“Please Arias, that is now way to treat guests. My teacher, especially.” He spoke as he touched down beside the couple. He crossed his arms with a look of disapproval on his face. She had been turning back into her old self ever since she came back from Vegeta, and the Albino didn’t like it. Too many things could go wrong if she was as temperamental as she is now. He turned to the side to talk to the Hybrid and his wife. “Greetings, Cel, Phae. Welcome to our home. Make yourself comfortable if you like…” He was cut off as his Ki sense suddenly began to go wild. Wha…who is that? That power… its huge! He spun around to see a giant tree-man entering the material world through a tear in the fabric of reality. Next to him, he could see Bastion, and with this he suddenly figured out the other tree’s identity. Is that… Bastion’s father?
He was shocked at his sudden appearance, but managed to remember his manners. “G… greetings sir! You are the father of Bastion… a… aren’t you?” He bowed in politeness at Walker, hoping that his distaste for Saiyans would not turn this friendly meeting into an all-out melee.
Presto was happy to see that Arias was able to eat all of the breakfast, though Presto would have prefered Arias to have savored it...Presto DID see how hungry Arias was just by looking at her. Presto stood there and smiled holding her hands behind her back as Arias devoured the entire thing. She made sure to remind Arias to drink her orange juice as well. The majin moved to sit next to Arias on the bed but Arias had soon been off in a flash when she heard a voice from the front door.
She had moved so fast that Presto couldn't even move to react until she already heard Arias yelling. She sounded so unhappy which made Presto feel a damp heaviness in her throat, as hearing arias go off like that was something she didn't really like to hear. The majin Hopped up from the bed and went to the front door where Arias was to see her yelling at a black haired saiyan and some green salad woman. Presto jogged over to Arias and ducked under her to face the newcomers that being the black haired saiyan and the green woman, biting her lower lip.
"I see...next time less butter, more love, duly noted..."
She said before hearing another voice, a voice she had been glad and happy to hear, another love in her life. "Bastion?" Presto said before turning to where he had been before smiling. In a hurry she ran to him and hopped onto him with a big hug, kissing him multiple times on his cheek or his mask, should it have been on. "Bastion!!~"
She said happily to the tree man should she have been able to hug him. She had been ready to ask her boyfriend how he had been doing but she tilted her head to look over to a devastating sight. It was...Bastion? no...it wasn't Bastion at all, she already had her arms wrapped around Bastion. In the majins line of vision had been a treeman even bigger than Bastion. Presto's eyes widened at the sight...this was Walker. "That's...your dad?"
Presto would say looking to Walker. At first it seemed like the majin was afraid, she held onto Bastion as her gaze wandered upon the great monarch that was Walker. Though the sense of fear would be completely wiped away as the girl smiled at the giant treeman. "Wow! I didn't really imagine him being THAT much bigger than you Bastion~, Nice to meet you Mr. Bastions dad! teehee!"

The hybrid sensed another familiar Ki signature nearby, immediately taking note of another sentient tree; Bastion. The hybrid stiffly waved in his direction as he folded his arms across his chest, unsure of what to make of the minuscule fraction of the tree's father that he recently sensed. Celmaru cleared his throat, dismissing the Ki, and simply greeted Bastion kindly and politely.
"Hello Bastion, its nice to see you again! Might I wonder why you're here, of all places?"
Phae had attempted to greet Bastion as well, alongside her husband.
"Greetings, Bastion! I hope you're doing well today."
As Bastion descended onto the surrounding terra firma, there was suddenly another flare of Ki from an unknown position, alarming Celmaru to an extent. The hybrid once again surveyed the area frantically, becoming increasingly paranoid of where the Ki was originating from. Phae poked her husband's face, concerned of his frantic actions.
"Are you alright, husband?"
"Ahem....er...yes, I'm fine. There are periodic flares of Walker's Ki around here....I have no idea as to why..."
"Might he be resurrecting via his own terms?"
"...I'm doubtful of such thoughts."
Bastion seemed rather disturbed, rather worked up. The hybrid quirked a brow towards his mentor's son, concerned, yet confused. Facing away from the door and towards his acquaintance, Celmaru spoke with a hint of concern within his voice.
"Are you alright, Bastion? Is there something wrong?"
"May we be of assistance, Bastion?"
The son of the tree-man mentioned his father; Walker. The hybrid shifted his gaze downwards upon the sound of his name, however Celmaru replied properly in response as Phae lightly embraced her husband in hopes of assisting his current mood.
"....Yes...you have mentioned your Father, what about- WHA-?!"
The most massive flare of energy penetrated the couple's minds, telling them one thing; Walker was coming. The sky began to ripple outwards from a specific point, and the hybrid's eyes widened to a dangerous extent. Phae was increasingly alarmed, and ducked her head behind her husband's shoulders, almost cowering at the sight of reality being torn away. A tear appeared, slicing through the azure sky with ease, with strikes of electricity flickering about its outline.
"Two-point-five million! That's-!......WALKER!"
The tear in reality began to expand and be spread wide open by two gigantic fists as the nearby door swung open, revealing an enraged Arias from within, along with a pink, bubblegum creature of some sort. The hybrid didn't have much time for either listening to the offended Saiyaness or the bubblegum creature of some odd origin as the the most fortunate sight the hybrid ever beheld appeared before him; his mentor and close friend Walker. Turning his head towards both Saiyans and the odd bubblegum creature, the hybrid spoke frantically before turning back towards Walker, who seemingly was crushing a halo.
"I can here to apologize for the recent events that transpired between us Arias, however it seems that Walker has other plans!"
Celmaru was almost ecstatic to see his mentor again, especially since he realize he had fallen mere weeks ago. The strange bubblegum creature lunged onto Bastion, embracing him and kissing him mercilessly; the hybrid could only begin to imagine why his mentor's son was becoming subject to such a Phae-like action, but regardless of that, his attention still stood towards Walker. The tree-man simply spoke in greeting as he stared down upon his son and student, however the latter could only stand in both awe and immense joy; Walker was alive once again, he had ascended to Earth from Hell, after all! In the hybrid's eyes, it was as if his mentor had descended from Heaven to Earth, joining the others he knew and cared for. Celmaru shook in place, unsure of what to say in response of the tree's entrance. However, there was something strange within Walker; there was something seemingly hidden, lurking underneath the immense power he currently wielded. Celmaru shook his head dismissively as Bastion spoke up, breaking the silence and supposedly being the first to greet his father.
'He's....he's alive! I...I-I can't believe it!'
'Celmaru, Bastion was correct....I can hardly believe it myself...'
'Aren't you knowledgeable within these subjects?'
'I am a lesser deity, and but a mere child by comparison to others of my kind....I have never seen the Afterlife, nor do I know how one could escape.'
The hybrid cut his mental conversation short as Walker descended to Earth to further greet his comrades and family. Phae reappeared behind her husband, taking note of Walker's new clothing as she silently waved to him warmly. The hybrid returned to his senses and cleared his throat awkwardly, standing upright and facing a surprising sight; Bastion showing emotion, specifically embarrassment. It seems that the tree's son had been somewhat..."busy" in his father's absence. However, as both Daika and the bubblegum creature began to greet Walker, the tree turned towards the hybrid, still uncomfortable and unsure how to truly respond. Fortunately, the hybrid's mentor began a simple conversation, appreciating the fact that the hybrid has indeed become stronger over the time he was absent.
"E-Er....y-yes, sir...I have...t-thank you for noticing..."
Celmaru began to blink rapidly, and odd welling sensation appearing behind his eyes. The hybrid definitely knew that he wasn't filled with sorrow, nor was his ire piqued. The odd sensation only grew stronger as Celmaru stepped forward, a force akin to a brick blocking his own airway, preventing the majority of his speech. The hybrid couldn't believe this, what he saw, what he heard, who was before him, how this was even possible, etc. The hybrid was a mere step away from Walker, facing skyward to meet his gaze. Celmaru's lips curled into an odd combination between a smirk and a thin grin, a sudden moisture welling up upon the corners of his eyes.
"...I can't believe it....my eyes can't deceive me a-anymore, can they? Y-You're alive, aren't you? I-I can't...even believe what I had...just witnessed...a mere m-mortal...escaping the Afterlife....I can only wonder what you'll do next...Walker."
Phae quietly slipped off her husband's back, floating away silently to join Bastion and the others. As much as she couldn't believe her own eyes, just as her husband couldn't, Phae knew that Celmaru might very well crush Walker in an embrace at any moment now. The hybrid began to float upwards, maintaining his flight at eyes level to his mentor. Celmaru couldn't help himself; the hybrid spread out his arms widely towards his mentor and clasped them around the tree's frame, embracing him tightly.
"You dumbass-tree....casually escaping the realm of the dead...Walker, you're a crazy bastard sometimes, you know that?"
A drop of salty liquid descended onto the tree's frame, then another, two more, then two specific streaks fell upon the hybrid's face. They weren't unfortunate tears of sorrow, however; they were tears of joy, those of which the hybrid had never experienced before. Despite what Walker had done the last time they had met, the hybrid couldn't help but treat him almost like family...a family he truly appreciated.
"You just made my day, Walker....I thank you for that. Welcome back, sir."
Yay me for making it emotional already, no no, you're welcome @tokoz !
It was an interesting assortment of people that greeted his return. An Albino Saiyan, a Majin, and Celmaru and Phae. Returning the Saiyan's hug, he gave it a moment before he broke away, hands on the Saiyan's shoulder. "I am glad to be back,Celmaru. I have to be honest, I was expecting to use some different method. Directly tearing through reality was not on my list of expected solutions." Tilting his neck, he shook his head and sighed. "But Celmaru, we're friends. You don't have to call me Sir. Although, I will admit, this is fairly unusual, yes." He shrugged. "It's not every day one manages to learn how to break down dimensional walls. Actually..." He paused, then lifted his hand slowly, before bringing it down in a tearing motion. Another rip formed, but unlike the last one, this one appeared to show... Bastion, with Presto sitting on his shoulder. Walker moved through it, and it closed a second later, as he stepped out of an identical hole on the ground.
"Interesting. It seems as though I can move using this technique, although far from fast enough to allow for instant movement. Still, for traveling, this will be quite helpful." He dusted off his robes, and turned to Bastion. "Well, I'm glad you've been enjoying yourself while I was away. Hello there, young lady. My name is Walker, and you are?" As he introduced himself to Presto, he noted the frightened Saiyaness nearby. "I'm afraid we haven't been introduced. As I said, I am Walker, Bastion's father and Celmaru's teacher. Although, he's nearing my strength himself, I'd wager. I've been... well, I was, up until a moment ago, dead."
Bastion, standing next to him, nodded slowly. He had been careful to keep that news on the down low, until the tree returned. Now that he had, it would only be beneficial to have that added to his legend. The Tree that Grew From Hell... Smiling, Bastion turned and gave Presto a kiss back. He was still blushing, but the excitement had over-ridden his embarrassment. "I'm glad you're back. I haven't had much time to train, but I have grown a little stronger in your absence. This is Presto, by the way. My... uh. Err..." He blushed harder as he tried to force the words out, but found himself unable to. Smiling, Walker turned to the side, looking at Celmaru again. He had a few misgivings about this, but he would push them down for the moment. Although, really, perhaps a talk was needed. His son was as bad as Celmaru had been.
"I am happy to have returned, although I fear I bring less than encouraging news. Bing has been brainwashed by the SSE, Reikiko the Bio-Android and Crane Sensei has Fallen, and Kaula may be about to fall as well." He exhaled, staring at the ground, and finished the news. "Taking into account those whom I know... Aside from Vi-Poi of the BBA, and Etoru, Bing's young student... Celmaru and I represent the strongest fighters left on Earth. Reikiko was killed by Bing, and the Queen of the Saiyans is at least as strong, if not stronger than he is. Earth has gone from a definite superiority in power to, at best, a near-tie in powerful fighters." The words echoed through the air like a funeral bell. It was clear what was being implied, to everyone there. If there was any change in the current rosters, the Earth would likely lose. As it stood... it would be close. "I do not know how much time we have, unfortunately. But I do know that, if it comes to it, I will attempt to evacuate as many as I can."
Arias was indeed reverting back to her old ways, and the insanity lurking behind her eyes was growing with each day, as her mental barriers broke down, one by one. It was only a matter of time until she lost all sanity, and went insane. When Daika told her off, she got angry at Daika and growled at him, clenching a fist. Her anger was soon over, as Arias desperately shook her head to regain her senses before attempting to apologize profusely to her mate. She never wanted to feel a sick desire to hurt him again, not in her lifetime. What have I become?? I'm becoming a monster... someone save me from this animal I have become..
Arias didn't notice Presto as she watched a tear in reality above their heads, causing her to stare in complete fear and horror, to the point she literally hid behind Daika, eyes wide and alight with fear. She trembled slightly in the presence of Walker, and watched as Celmaru ran to him. She didn't make any comments, for once keeping her mouth shut. She was terrified of Walker, and when she saw Presto kissing Bastion she sweatdropped slightly, staring. "Presto, explain what the hell this is? If you hurt this kid, you've got an angry crazy tree after you that could obliderate you beyond the afterlife itself! Hell his father just ripped a hole in reality AND JUST CAME OUT OF HELL! And you're dating his son. HIS SON. Please don't do anything stupid Presto.."
Arias continued to hide behind Daika at the presence of Walker, regardless that the Saiyaness was much stronger than her mate. Power wasn't everything, and if Celmaru hadn't shattered her pride she would not be scared of Walker. She didn't say anything, but nodded shyly, shrinking further back behind Daika.
“Arias… Stop hiding behind me please. He isn’t going to hurt you…” The Albino Saiyan sighed. She was such a bossy and angry woman when she was with weaker warriors, but as soon as someone who was far stronger than her showed up, she turned from a great lion into a scared, mewling kitten. He pushed his palm into his face, shaking his head from side to side. “Really Arias, you make a fool of yourself sometimes, y’know.” Taking his hand of his face, he learned that the name of Bastion’s father was Walker. A strange name for some kind of tree-man, did he do a lot of walking?
Pushing aside the trivial questions for a later date, he looked up to face Walker. “Well, any friend of Celmaru’s is any friend of mine. Sir Walker, welcome to our home.” However, as he listened to Arias, his eyes widened in shock. “Presto… your dating… Bastion??” He was extremely shocked at this latest revelation. No-one had bothered to tell the Albino Saiyan anything, as usual. “W… well, that’s an interesting development… I… I think I need to go sit down somewhere.” He slowly stumbled back inside the house, leaving the front door open in case anyone else wanted to go in as well.
Presto smiled at walker in all his might. He was definitely powerful as Presto had hypothesized when she had first espoused with Bastion. Although she thought Bastion's father would be strong, she underestimated him by miles when she had said 'kinda', as there was nothing 'kinda' about Walker, he had BEEN powerful without any question. While most would probably have nothing but fear for such a being, Presto had but respect and love for Walker, being her boyfriend's father.
"Gee walker I sure pulled the rug from under my own feet when I said your father was probably 'kinda strong' haha! what an understatement!"
It was at that moment Presto froze up when she heard her mother's voice, in what seemed to be in reaction to her being with Bastion...Walker's son. Her head slowly turned to look at Arias, with a worried like expression. She heard the slight tone of fear/anger/worry in the saiyans voice, as well as a mixture of the three. When she finished Daika had a similar reaction, maybe not as over the top but just as surprised it seems.
Presto bit her lip at the two, did they not realize that their daughter was a pink space demon? Well not that it mattered, sure walker was powerful, but Presto wasn't going to watch him like a watch dog and keep a distance from her boyfriend just because of his power alone, Presto would also never do anything to Bastion...specifically Bastion and Arias had this tight of a bond with the Majin, Daika was soon to be on the same boat.
"Jeez guys, just because a guy rips through the fabric of life he is suddenly an obstacle for my love life? not a chance~ I still love my Bastion~" She said before smooching the treeman with a drawn out 'mmmm' before pulling her lips from his face.
The majin would float to sit atop Bastions shoulders as if giving the majin a piggy back ride, she had finally took notice to Celmaru and Phae. The majin would stretch her neck all the way to the two with a smile with a wink. "Hoi there! I don't believe we have met!...you must be friends with my parents Arias and Daika, as well as my boyfriend's father huh? well damn pleased to meetcha!" Presto would say with a heartwarming tone in her voice.

The hybrid blinked away the unnecessary substance upon his eyes, breaking away from his sudden embrace with his mentor briefly upon enacting it. Celmaru floated backwards towards the grassy soil as he hastily wiped away the streaks upon his cheeks. Suddenly, a wooden hand fell atop his shoulder. The hybrid flinched slightly as he listened to Walker speak, specifically of his relations with Celmaru, and that of how his newfound ability to tear through reality as if it were nothing. The hybrid shook his head upon Walker mentioning that the hybrid didn't have to refer to the tree-man as "sir".
"Walker, I certainly respect you, you can guarantee that, however I haven't seen you in roughly a month sir- er...Walker. Sensing that your Ki went from everything to simply nothing in a mere moment...it didn't settle well with me....speaking with Bastion only confirmed my fears. Besides fearing your death, it simply felt worse knowing that could've been the minuscule chance that I could've made a difference in whatever you must've faced....something named Reikiko, from what Bastion had mentioned."
The hybrid descended towards the grassy soil once more, regaining his composure as Phae rejoined her husband once more, pecking him softly upon the cheek as she began to rest upon his back. Unfortunately, the moment the hybrid took to face away from Walker was poorly timed. The tree-man had disappeared and reappeared near his own son, wearing his typical robe once more. The hybrid huffed lightly as he smirked slightly, joining his mentor once more as he folded his arms. Celmaru noticed Arias hiding behind Daika as Walker began to speak within Bastion yet once again, briefly introducing himself to the Saiyaness and Presto in the process. However, the hybrid's ears twitched as he heard his mentor mentioned the hybrid catching up to him; Celmaru almost felt outraged, merely out of disbelief.
"What?! How?! I couldn't have been able to catch up to you this soon, even if you died!"
"Celmaru, please calm yourself!"
Phae attempted to calm her husband as he went over the power measures of both him and his wooden mentor. The hybrid sensed that his mentor's Ki has definitely risen from before, well above the numbers of two-hundred thousand, meanwhile the hybrid was barely below it, just upon the cusp of it all. Concerning power measures, the hybrid truly only considered the two to be close within such subjects if they were within twenty thousand of each other; which they seemingly weren't. The hybrid faced away from his mentor, clearing his throat awkwardly upon the realization of his outburst.
"....I apologize for my outburst."
Meanwhile, Presto was speaking with Walker alongside her boyfriend....apparently. Celmaru shifted his gaze over towards Daika as he heard minuscule fragments of their seemingly brief conversation, watching as the male Saiyan stumbled into his home, leaving the door wide open.
'Is Daika intoxicated again?'
'My, that would be an issue...'
'Considering last time that happened, yes.'
As Celmaru cycled through his plethora of thoughts, a sudden shift of Presto's neck and a heartwarming tone later, the Majin's face was before the hybrid's own. Long, reflexive story short, the hybrid nearly flew away from the bubblegum-esqe face, ascending to Super Sayian out of his immediate, yet incredibly brief fear. Celmaru was a wide step back from where he originally stood, his arms within finger's reach of his face and the ground shattering beneath his feet under the immense power. The hybrid Super Saiyan's hair shot upward, his dark brown locks melting away into a pale blond. The hybrid's eyes shifted into icy blue hues alongside his pale blond hair, officially signifying his transformation. However, the typical Super Sayian aura wouldn't manifest itself as Celmaru stammered upon the sight of Presto's extended neck.
"W-What?! H-How is her n-neck....?! Is....is this a Majin?"
"Er....I-In any regard....its, er...nice to meet you? My name is Celmaru Waterfield, and my wife here is Phae Waterfield. I apologize if what I had...er...mentioned just earlier seemed rude...."
The hybrid still hadn't noticed that he had mastered Super Sayian, however Phae had begun to notice a change. Unfortunately, that moment of revelation would have to wait; Walker had some rather....discouraging news. The tree-man spoke of those who have fallen, those about to fall, and how Walker and Celmaru, along with a few others, represented some of the strongest upon the planet at the very given moment. Several names that the hybrid were unfamiliar with had been mentioned; Kaula, Etoru, and despite hearing of the BBA general once before, the hybrid was still generally unfamiliar with his name. Unfortunately, a few other names stood out to Celmaru, those he'd heard of previously; Reikiko, and the Kami of Earth, Bing Gan. Once again, the hybrid had heard something he couldn't believe.
"The...the Kami of Earth was brainwashed? Walker, please tell me you're lying, the Earth's God can't be felled...surely he couldn't!"
This was a serious blow to Earth's morale, if nothing else. Their God has fallen to the enemy, now supposedly doing their own bidding by now. Some of the most powerful warriors upon this green and blue gem of a planet had apparently fallen; by the enemy or otherwise. Earth was now incredibly vulnerable, however there was still a chance that it could survive. Walker mentioned his inability to know of how much time they have until another invasion, and Celmaru remained silent as he finished.
'One of the strongest left on Earth, huh? I almost feel like its unfortunate that I'm one of them...'
'Why is that husband?'
'Now the entire planet may rest its life upon me...I'm not sure if I can handle a planetary level of responsibility...'
'You'll be fine husband~'
'I hope so.'
Celmaru clenched his fists together as he thought of the people he needed to protect now; Core, Phae, the unborn children, possibly even Arias and Daika, along with their family. Besides those who could defend themselves, there was the hybrid's parents, along with their home, including the hybrid's own. Regardless, the Earth was their home, nothing could change that fact. Celmaru faced his mentor, requesting another session once more, just they had previous; hopefully without a staged death.
"Walker, I hope we can get back to training soon, if that's the case. If the situation is like this, then we need to become stronger. Just keep in mind that Phae....ahem....has some....er.....special cargo."
The hybrid idly poked his fingers together, blushing furiously as Phae pecked her husband upon the cheek once more. Celmaru shifted his gaze away from the tree-man, his embarrassment over his previous actions completely obvious to everyone nearby. The hybrid would clear his throat awkwardly once more as he awaited a response, if any, to his earlier request. Hopefully Walker wouldn't make a greater deal over Phae's pregnancy than he would need to.
MSSJ activated! PL is now 2,750,020! (Yes, it was achieved in a previous thread...hasn't been graded as of yet)
Doing his level best to ignore the silliness going on behind him, including the Majin with the ridiculously long neck that was dating his son, Walker nodded at those assembled. He was honestly trying not to laugh at the responses Arias and Daika had given to hearing Presto's announcement, however. Mere months ago, he had been on their level. Now, he was overwhelmingly stronger. With such people like Zuccetta or Bing, or even Kaula and Etoru, he had forgotten how much he had grown. If he reached just a bit further, that might change even more. Smiling slightly, he turned back to Celmaru.
"I'm afraid the news is dire, but don't fret. You're not the last line of defense, by any means. Vipoi, Etoru, and the Galactic Patrol are still there, as am I. However, now, you may be necessary for the final battle, especially if it takes place on Earth. If it makes you feel any better..." He clenched one fist, looking at it. "I am not quite out of the running yet. I believe my first evolution, the one you saw, was not entirely complete. I did not reach the same level as my teacher, Reikiko."
Looking skyward, his next words were almost whispered. "I can feel it, but I dare not reach for it just yet. It must remain a secret from the enemy, and I will have no way to hide the power that will be unleashed once I evolve." He could feel the potential there, but it was not yet time. Unlike the chaotic evolution of Super Saiyan, his transformations were somewhat controllable. Speaking of Chaos....
"Celmaru, I'm glad to see you've managed to get a handle on your transformation. I confess, I'm a little jealous. Your skill in using the form seems to have boosted your power over my own." Indeed, it was true. Celmaru's base power had risen quite a bit, and the exponential increase that was given by Super Saiyan had made him an incredibly powerful fighter. He was nearing 3 Million now, and in his current imperfect form, Walker would actually have found himself on the defensive in such a match up. Well, not if he used the Kikoho. Still, that was far too great a risk merely to prove some egotistical point.
However, it seemed some surprises were still to come. Celmaru made a reference to Phae, and it took only a second of more careful scrutiny to feel the two nascent dots of energy within her. Blinking, he looked at the pair, eyes moving back and forth for a second. Then, with a sudden motion, he was hugging Celmaru right back. "This is wonderful, my friend! I am so glad to hear you will be a father!" His tone was jovial, but a determined air fell over his heart at the news.
His friend was going to be a father. If he knew Celmaru, the half-saiyan wouldn't abandon the planet. If all else failed... he would at least save the couple, move them somewhere else. They didn't deserve to burn under the fist of the SSE.
