About the story: This fanfic is actually the fourth part of my Lost Warrior series, but seeing as the first two parts were my first stories ever and weren't really something to be proud of and it doesn't make sense to read the third one without knowing the other two, I didn't upload the first three stories. However, this story can be read without knowing the other three parts, so I wanted to upload it here. However, if you want to know the contents of the other three stories, just send me a message and I'll give you a summary. :)
A huge part of this story has already been finished by the way, so I'm going to upload a new chapter once a week, until I'm running out of chapters, but this should take more than one year. ;)

So, this is just the prologue... it's not much and more of an introduction, so I'll upload the first chapter as soon as possible!

Enjoy!
Prologue

Many, many centuries and decades ago, when the human’s only worry was to find a place to live in some cave and to kill some poor animals to have something to eat, he had no idea that next to the small territory, where he was living, something else existed. He didn’t know the meaning of why things happened the way they did, he didn’t know the reason of day- and nightfall, nor did he know any laws of physics. The only thing he knew was one ever-present law of nature. The survival of the fittest. But that was all he needed in that time.

First many thousands years later famous scholars and astronomers started to theorize about the world. At that time they were still thinking that the earth was as flat as a plate and the sky just a dome-like vault. According to them there was a huge waterfall at the end of the earth, letting all the water fall into black nothingness directly to hell. Sailors were scared that they would sail over the edge with their ships, so they never dared to get near the horizon and so they never looked for better seaways to other countries and islands.

It would take another century or so for them to finally realize that the earth was a sphere. Yet they were still far behind our knowledge about the universe, because they still thought that the earth was the center of it and that all other planets were circling around it, until a few of them got the idea that the sun could be the center and that all other planets, including the earth, were on its orbit.

But no matter what time we look at, there will always be things our scientists don’t, can’t or won’t know or understand. For example did people think for a long time that we were all alone in the universe. An egoistic and at the same time illogical thought. But the eyes of those skeptics had been opened as one day at 11.43 am two space pods landed in a city, leaving huge craters in the street and two human-like beings, just much stronger, with brown furry tails, emerged out of them. From that moment on they were definitely sure that we aren’t alone in the universe.

But this story is not about those two aliens, well, at least not about one of them. This story is about something else that needs a bit more explaining.

As you know now, there’s the universe and in this universe are many different galaxies, each with its own solar systems. But the universe isn’t everything out there. Parallel to this universe other universes and timelines do exist. Those do exist in different dimensions and worlds. In one dimension the earth could be populated by normal humans, in another by other creatures, who are like or not like humans and there’s the possibility that just other humans are living there. The technology could be more advanced or you could find yourself in the Stone Age.

The same goes for the different worlds, just that they are on a complete different plane of existence than the dimensions. Like the name already says, this other world is different from everything. There are other planets, other beings, the time could even pass differently there. One example for another world is the afterlife, the world of the dead, what is kind of lying in another dimension, just that the laws are different from those in parallel dimensions.

But above all dimensions and worlds stand different realities. A reality is kind of like a timeline, just way more encompassing. You know that, when you go back in time and change maybe just one small detail, you’ve created a new timeline, while in your own nothing has changed. This same law reigns in a reality. Just one small incident could create another reality, with its own timelines, worlds, dimensions, universes, galaxies, stars and planets.


This is what this story is about. This story tells you what influence the birth of one baby girl in the wrong (right) dimension could have on the happenings in the future. Some things could become better, other things worse. But one thing is sure. Happenings, both important and unimportant ones, would definitely differ from the original reality, of which this one had been created…


~*~



In a different world, the world of the dead, also called the afterlife, was found among many other small and big planets one that was much like earth, as we know her. The only difference was that the sky was purple and that no mortal being was allowed to set foot on it. On this planet the most powerful being of the universe was living together with his friend and servant. When I’m talking about powerful I do not entirely mean strength. This being possessed the wisdom of many hundred years of living and of his ancestors and he was the most powerful of his rank in this world. He was more important than the god on earth, more important than the four Kaious and even more important than the Dai Kaiou. He was the Kaioushin.

The small incident that would change everything, happened one week after the terrible jinzoningen Cell had been defeated by a boy of merely eleven years. It was night and a large fire was lighted in the middle of a meadow. The shadows of the high flames were dancing playfully on the purple skin of the Kaioushin, whose white mohawk was swaying in the wind. His brows were furrowed in concentration and sweat was running down his face, while he was mumbling a combination of words in a strange language, repeating them again and again like a mantra.

Next to him a large and strong-looking man with dark rose-colored skin and white long hair was standing. He was Kibito, his friend, servant and bodyguard. He watched tensed how the Kaioushin performed this strange ritual, without directly knowing why his master was doing it.

Even though this girl had just been conceived, the Kaioushin could already feel a great power coming from her and that her role in the fate of this and the earth in another dimension was an important one. She was the daughter of a powerful warrior, a warrior that had saved the earth more than once, but was now dead. Neither this warrior nor his wife knew yet that she was expecting again. Not just one, but two strong babies. This was another, if for some people not even more important, reason to take the unborn girl from her mother, so that another woman in another dimension could give birth to her. Because due to the heritage of the father and the growing strength of both babies, the mother would surely die giving birth to them. She was just human and wouldn’t be able to survive the strains of bearing two children that were more than a hundred times stronger than her.


Both, master and servant, were too deep in concentration and the noise of the fire too loud, making it impossible to notice that they were being watched by two figures. First as those two figures stepped nearer Kibito’s head jerked up, seeing them standing in the shadows the fire was throwing on them. He walked past the Kaioushin, careful not to bother, but at the same time willing to protect him, and stopped, when the distance between him and the newcomers had shrunk to a few yards.

“Who are you?” Kibito demanded to know. His voice was strong and firm and would have made normal people squirm. But those two figures, one as large as Kibito, the other small, even smaller than the Kaioushin, both wearing capes, which hoods were covering most parts of their faces, didn’t seem to be normal. They were just standing there, unmoving. “Who are you?” the Kaioushin’s servant repeated again, when there came no answer. “As you maybe see the Kaioushin is performing an important ritual and he might not be disturbed.”

“I see that,” the small figure now said, stepping nearer.

The Kaioushin stopped his mantra and tensed remarkably, when he heard this voice. He knew it… and he feared and hated it at the same time. All the years he had hoped that he would never hear this voice again, this voice that had brought him nightmares for all those years. But now it was back, the owner of this voice was back, most likely out for revenge. His eyes jerked open, but he stared into the fire, refusing to look into the direction of the voice.

“But the Kaioushin and I, we know each other. Isn’t that so, my old friend?” the small figure now said, laughing mockingly. “What is it?” he continued, when the god didn’t move. “Scared of little old me?”

Now the Kaioushin finally turned his head, got up and walked up to his friend. The ritual was far from finished, but he knew what the owner of this voice was capable of, so he must be his first priority, with the hope that he would later be able to finish the ritual and wouldn’t be dead. “Oh no, I’m not scared,” he said with pure venom in his voice. “I was just surprised to see you here. I’ve thought I would never see you again, after I’ve killed your father, Babidi.”

The small figure, Babidi, laughed again and pulled the hood down from his head, revealing his dirty-yellow and wrinkled skin. “So, you still recognize me.”

“Why are you here?” the Kaioushin wanted to know.

“I thought you knew why I’m here. Vengeance of course. I know that I alone won’t be able to revenge my father, but I’ve found someone who could do it. Isn’t that so, Darbura?”

“Yes master Babidi,” the tall figure said, also pulling the hood down, to reveal the rose-colored skin of the demon Lord himself.

“Darbura?” Kibito and the Kaioushin mumbled, a wave of sudden fear running through their bodies, and both took a step backwards.

“Darbura, you know what you have to do. Kill the Kaioushin,” Babidi ordered.

“Of course, master.” The demon Lord clenched his fist and with a roar rushed towards the god, who was almost paralyzed with fear.

“Kaioushin! No!” Kibito screamed and threw himself in the way of the attack, what just ended with him dead on the ground, having a bleeding hole in his abdomen.

“Kibito…” The Kaioushin fell down on his knees next to his friend. He was defeated and he knew it. There was no way that he could defeat Darbura. He looked back up just to see the Demon Lord shooting a ki blast at him, but before the blast could hit him, he sent a quick prayer to the sky. I’m sorry. I couldn’t finish the ritual. Please forgive me.

“What are you planning to do now, master?” Darbura wanted to know, as he and Babidi were standing in front of the two bodies.

Babidi snickered. “Now that the Kaioushin is dead, there’s no one who could stop us. We will now go and start gathering energy and when the time is right we go to earth, where we will reawake Buu.”

Part I: Important Meeting by ChibiChibi
Author's Notes:

Welcome to the first real chapter of this story! I hope you’ll enjoy it! There are many more to come (right now, 67 chapters have already been written and there’s still more planned for this story!).

Part I

Chapter 1: Important Meeting

It was common knowledge in the afterlife that news, be it good or bad ones, have this strange ability of spreading really fast. So it was no wonder that one day later the mood of nearly all occupants of the Other World was more than a bit grim – especially those of the four Kaious and the Dai Kaiou. Something that no one would have ever thought could happen had happened. The Kaioushin had died, along with his bodyguard – killed by whom they had yet to find out.

Unfortunately the person who could answer that question had sent the Dai Kaiou a message earlier that day, telling him that his arrival would be a bit delayed due to other, also important matters, he had to attend to. And now all the notables of the Afterlife were gathered in the palace of the Dai Kaiou, waiting more or less patiently and in silence for this person who would throw light on the dark of that mysterious death.

“I’m bored…” a voice suddenly whispered. The owner of the voice, a man with spiky black hair and black eyes, wearing a blue shirt covered by an orange gi and having a halo flying above his head, had his elbow propped up on his knee and his chin resting in his hand, while his eyes were darting around the hall, observing all the different people in the hope to find someone he knew, what was most unlikely due to the sheer number of people there, when a loud grumble was being heard coming from his stomach. “And hungry…”

The man next to him on the bench, a blue catfish-like being with two antennas on and also a halo above his head, let out an annoying sigh. “Goku, I’ve told you to stay home, but you wanted to come with me.”

“But Kaiousama,” Goku whined, “I wanted to know who was able to take the Kaioushin down. I mean, when he’s really that a big shot as you told me, the one must have been extremely powerful.”

The Northern Kaiou noticed how already a few heads turned towards them and felt his face becoming warm of embarrassment. “Goku,” he hissed. “Not so loud.”

“Oops.” He quickly clasped his hands over his mouth and said then in a muffled voice, “Sorry.”

At about the same time on the other side of the hall one small green-skinned boy was sitting on a chair, nervously fidgeting with his hands. He didn’t know what he should do – staring in awe at his surroundings or just staring at the floor, trying to avoid any strange eye contact with the other, definitely more important persons than him in the large hall. Many of them were throwing him glances as if asking what a small kid like him was doing at an important meeting like this. Even he was asking himself that question. He had just been the guardian of Earth for not more than three weeks, so why was he already at a meeting, where the death of the highest being in the universe was being discussed? You could say that he was more than a bit surprised, when suddenly a servant of none other than the Dai Kaiou had appeared on his Lookout, asking him to be there, where he was right now. Dende sighed. Hopefully he would find out why his presence here was acquired some time during this meeting.

Suddenly he heard a whining voice, which was well known to the small green guardian of Earth. His head jerked up, while his eyes were wandering through the hall and there he saw him – on the other side of the hall Goku was sitting, together with whom he assumed to be the Northern Kaiou. He just wanted to get up and walk over to them, when someone cleared his throat and all attention was drawn to the front of the hall, including his and Goku’s, whose eyes suddenly changed from showing boredom to showing curiosity for what would happen now.

In front of everyone an old man with a long white beard and hair was standing, dressed in a black robe and wearing sunglasses. Dende asked himself if this was the Dai Kaiou, but his question was answered, when someone next to him started to whisper, confirming his assumption. So, this really was the Dai Kaiou. Didn’t look too powerful, but that didn’t mean anything of course. Dende knew from own experiences that you shouldn’t judge people after their outer appearance. Heck, who of the people in the hall would think that he, a mere child, was the god of a planet called Earth?

The young god’s thoughts were interrupted, when the Dai Kaiou cleared his throat a second time and finally began to talk. “Ladies and Gentlemen, people of the living realm and the afterlife, fellow Gods and Goddesses. I just wanted to let you know that I just got a message of the person we are all…”

Before the Dai Kaiou could finish the sentence, two men, a large and a small one, suddenly materialized in the hall next to the Dai Kaiou. Excited and disbelieving murmurs immediately went through the hall, while the smaller one of the two just smirked down at them.

“But that’s…” the Northern Kaiou mumbled disbelieving, before he realized his mistake and let out a chuckle. “Of course…”

“What is it, Kaiousama?” Goku asked confused. “Who is that?”

“These two are the Kaioushin and his friend Kibito,” he informed the dead warrior.

“WHAT?! But I thought they were dead!”

“Of course they are, Goku. Don’t you see the halos above their heads? They are just as dead as we are and the Kaioushin has – of course, if I may add – the same privilege you and I have. He and obviously also Kibito were allowed to keep their bodies.”

“I see,” Goku said smiling. “But that means that the whole situation isn’t that bad. So they just continue their life, err unlife here in the Other World.”

The Kaioushin waited for a short time, until the murmurs had almost died down, before he started to speak. “I’m sorry for letting you wait so long,” he said, “but I first had to bail my friend Kibito out of heaven and talk Enma Daiou into giving him his body back.” He chuckled lightly, much to the confusion of everyone else in the hall. They couldn’t understand what there was to laugh about. Didn’t they understand that they were dead? “And to answer the questions you might have – Yes, I am the Kaioushin, this is Kibito and yes, we are dead, and just the like the Northern Kaiou, of whom I’ve heard that he’d died about two weeks ago, and most other people on this planet, we were allowed to keep our bodies.”

Again a few murmurs went through the crowd and Kibito used the time to bow down and whisper into his friend’s ear, “Lord Kaioushin, I think you should tell them now the reason of our death.”

The Kaioushin nodded and turned his attention back to the ‘audience’. “But now enough of that. Tell me, has anyone of you ever heard of Majin Buu?” Just few people nodded, having terrified and shocked expression on their faces, while the rest either shook their heads or looked questioningly at the Kaioushin, urging him to go on. “Well, for those of you who don’t know him – Majin Buu is a terrible monster, a demon to be precise. He has already killed four Kaioushins – I was the only one who has survived his attack – but fortunately his creator, a magician with the name Bibidi, sealed him away in a sphere, because he started to fear Buu’s power and that he wouldn’t be able to control him any longer. I had been able to kill Bibidi, but yesterday my worst nightmare came true. Bibidi’s son Babidi came to my planet to kill me, so that I wouldn’t be able to stop him from resurrecting Buu.”

But how could this Babidi kill the Kaioushin and his friend, when then Kaioushin had been able to kill his father? Goku asked himself. Was this Babidi that strong?

“No, Goku, Babidi isn’t strong enough to kill me and Kibito on his own,” Kaioushin answered, looking at Goku, who just looked up startled. “He hadn’t come to me alone. With him was the Demon Lord Darbura, the strongest being in the Universe of Evil. He had been the one to kill us without breaking into sweat. You must know Babidi has the ability to possess people with evil in their hearts – that’s how he made Darbura his henchman.” He paused a bit, waiting if he could pick up any thoughts or questions that he needed to comment or answer, but they all just looked at him expectantly. “Fortunately I think that Babidi isn’t that familiar with the rules of the afterlife. He probably thinks that I’m gone for good and can’t interfere in his work anymore.” He smirked. “Well, he doesn’t know how wrong he is, because from now on I will do everything in my might to stop him.”

Loud cheers erupted from the crowd in the hall, including three of the four Kaious. The Northern Kaiou however had a thoughtful expression on his face after hearing what the Kaioushin had told them. He frowned. That’s not good. With Darbura at his side Babidi will be really hard to defeat. But first of all they had to find him and that would be the other hard task.

The Kaioushin however seemed to hear his thoughts, because he suddenly heard a voice in his head. Don’t worry too much, Kaiousama. I’m quite positive that we will be able to defeat Babidi. As you self said it will be hard for me to find him, especially now that I can’t leave the realms of the Afterlife, and I’m sure that it will take a few years. Just promise me that you keep a good eye on Earth and tell me when you feel something unusual there. But please don’t tell Son Goku about it and make him train hard. We might need his help when it’s time to fight. Instead of answering him, Kaiousama just looked at him and nodded lightly.

The Kaioushin smiled back and then turned again to the other people in the hall. “Okay, that was everything I had to tell you. But before you go, is Dende, the guardian of the Planet Earth present?”

“Dende is here?” Goku asked smiling, as he looked around.

Dende looked up surprised, when his name was mentioned, and saw that all people were frantically looking around in search for the god of Earth. Taking a deep breath, he stood up. “Yes, I’m here.”

The Kaioushin smiled at him. “Good. Please come here, Dende. I want to talk to you. Everyone else can go.”

While Dende made his way up to the front of the hall, everyone else streamed into the other direction, just Goku and the Northern Kaiou remained seated. They watched, as the Kaioushin welcomed the boy and then led him through one of the other doors into a room behind the large hall, followed by Kibito.

And they were still there, when Dende left the room again alone about two hours later. Of course, Kaiousama wanted to go home again instead of waiting, but Goku wanted to use the possibility to talk to the young Namek. He didn’t know when he would again get the chance to do that. Besides, he was curious as to why the Kaioushin would’ve wanted to talk to him, so his master reluctantly agreed to waiting with him.

Dende looked quite shaken, when he stepped out of the room, but quickly forced a smile on his face, when he saw his friend sitting there, waiting for him. The Kaioushin had just allowed him to tell the other Namek on Earth, the one who had fused with Kami, what he had been told in those two hours. No one else was allowed to know about that. But in those two hours Dende had also used the chance to offer him the use of the Dragonballs to bring them back to life.  “Hello Goku, Kaiousama,” Dende greeted him friendly.

“Hey Dende! I didn’t expect to see you here,” Goku told him.

“Well, I was quite surprised myself, when suddenly one of Dai Kaiou’s men invited me to come here,” the guardian said.

“So, why did the Kaioushin want to talk to you?” the Saiyajin wanted to know, as they left the palace.

Dende shrugged. “Nothing big. He just wanted to get me to know a bit, since I’m the youngest guardian of a planet he’s ever heard of. We also talked about the Dragonballs and I told him that I could use them to resurrect him and Kibito again so that they would have it easier to find Babidi.” Dende tried hard to avoid the eyes of Goku. He had never been one to lie, especially not to people like Goku, but at least it wasn’t a complete lie. “I’m sorry Goku, but I have to go back now. Popo is probably already waiting for me and I don’t want to leave him alone too long.”

“Yeah, good old Popo… Tell the others I said hi,” Goku said cheerfully, seemingly not once doubting the words of the young Namek.

“I’ll do that. Goodbye Goku!”

“Goodbye Dende!” They waved at each other, before each of them went their own way.

 

~*~

 

“I wonder why Dende is lying to me…” Goku said thoughtfully, when they had reached the house where he and Kaiousama were living in.

“Why do you think that?” Kaiousama asked surprised. He hadn’t thought that Goku would discover the lie.

“Well, I know I’m not the smartest person here, but I know when someone’s lying to me. Maybe it has something to do with Babidi and Buu.” Goku sighed. “Well, whatever it is, I’ll continue my training, just to be on the safe side. I’m sure he and the Kaioushin have their reasons.”

“Do that Goku, do that…” his master mumbled, following his pupil into the house.

 

~*~

 

“You’ve been gone longer than expected,” Piccolo greeted Dende, when he was back on the Lookout. “Has something happened?”

Dende nodded and started to tell Piccolo everything that had occurred that day. To be blunt Piccolo was quite shocked to hear that the Kaioushin had been killed, but also glad that he would be wished back in about one year. But he was even more shocked when he heard what the Kaioushin had told Dende about the whereabouts of the sphere Buu was sealed away in.

“That’s terrible,” Piccolo muttered. “The sphere is here on Earth and Babidi could appear here any time to resurrect this monster.”

“I know… But that wasn’t the only reason the Kaioushin wanted to talk to me…” Dende admitted. “When he had been killed, he had just been in the process of performing a ritual concerning Goku’s family.”

“What?”

“He told me that ChiChi is pregnant again, with twins – one boy and one girl. With this ritual he wanted to take the girl from her and send her into another dimension, where she should’ve been born by normal human parents. He said that the fate of the girl was lying there, but he had no real idea what that meant. He just said that this was written in some old prophecies. But thanks to Babidi’s and Darbura’s intervention he hadn’t been able to finish the ritual and when he had woken up everything he needed to finish or to repeat the ritual had been destroyed.”

Piccolo snorted. “So what? Now the girl is going to be born in this dimension. So maybe we can find another way to send her into this other dimension after she’s born and old enough to face her fate.”

“If it were that easy.” Dende sighed. “But it is not. He also told me that ChiChi won’t be strong enough to give birth to two strong Saiyajins. She most likely won’t survive it.”
