Shadows Chapter 13
Heres the necessary filler chapter to explain how they get
to Kaios and everything. Thus no fighting this one people.
That comes in the next chapter...
It was a week later when the finally arrived. It had been
necessary to borrow a regeneration tank from an EWO facilty
to bring Jake up to full strength. But that was another story.
Alker, Jake and Ferefire had now recovered fully from their
exertions and were presently standing at the base of what
had once been Kurin tower, brutually demolished by Gero and
"Well here it is", Piccolo gestured, "Though
I'm not sure if it is still possible to travel there..."
"We have to try", Jake replied, hope burning furiously
in his very being, "Can we get there Piccolo-san?"
"Follow me", Piccolo instructed, "We will find
out very soon"
They ascended into the sky. Rising and rising it was not long
before the it was a featureless green and blue landscape below.
Yet the climb continued. Finally Piccolo stopped. The sky
was perfectly clear due to the fact that any cloud cover was
now below them.
"How high up are we?", Alker quiried.
"About 200 miles I'm told", informed Piccolo.
"That's impossible", came the reply from Alker,
"The Earth's atmosphere only extends 6 miles into space"
"There is a much simplier way to be sent to the afterlife",
Alker wisely took the hint and kept quiet.
"This is difficult to do, so shut up all of you! All
three of you grab my arms. This should not take too long",
calmly Piccolo closed his eyes and began to concentrate, focusing
his mind on one thing...
Suddenly, in a blink of an eye they were there. They had materalised
in a queue of some sort, which consisted of seemingly white
clouds. At the end of this line was a massive palace, the
like of which Alker had never seen before. Truely this was
the palace of the after-life.
"What are clouds doing here?", Alker inquired, somewhat
" Souls", Piccolo simply stated and it was left
After a bit of queue jumping, they had reached the domain
of the giant Lord Enma, the judge of the dead. There he Occupied
his seat, sitting at his massive table as he would do for
as long as life in this universe existed determing what would
happen to each and every soul as they passed from one plane
to another. Alker, Jake and Ferefire just stood there in awe.
"This is most unexpected...Should I be adressing Piccolo
or Kami?", Enma stated coldly.
"Not too unexpected. Especially if you have actually
been watching what has been going on down on Earth for the
last 16 years", Piccolo remarked, his voice equally cold.
"Do you really want to go to hell when you die Piccolo?",
Enma replied somewhat angered by his insolence.
"No. I want to help save the world", Piccolo was
entirely genuine, "These three may be able to defeat
Gero with the right training from Kaio-Sami"
Alker, Ferefire and Jake were somewhat taken aback by this
"Are you certain of it?"
"No. But we have no other options. I leave it up to you"
"Very well", Enma replied after a moments consideration,
"Despite your arrogance and plain innosolence, I shall
allow these three to pass. Pray that I am in such a generous
mood when I come to judge you Piccolo"
"Ah shuddup you...", Piccolo mumured.
"Sorry Piccolo? I am omnipotent and all seeing you know"
Everyone pasued and held there breathe, before Piccolo eventually
replied, "I do not have any more time to remain here
exchanging pleasantries. Goodbye", and on that instance
he had vanished. Again everyone paused. Eventually the silence
was broken by Jake.
"Thank you sir", Jake replied appreciatedly.
"Just clear off the three of you. You should get there
after you have travelled snake way. Don't waste my time anymore"
"Okay thanks again", they began to leave.
"Hold it! One more thing"
"What is it sir?"
"It's that way", Elma pointed the opposite direction
that they were going.
They had been going along this damn road for the last couple
of days. Snake way seemed to be a normal road except for the
fact that either side existed a layer of ominous looking clouds.
A helpful looking man had adviced them at the start of their
journey not to fall off the road. Neither Alker, Jake nor
Ferefire wanted to chance it. After a while they had given
up running, deciding by mutual consent to fly.
"How long is it this thing?", Alker complained.
"About as far as i can throw you", came the ever
cocky voice of Ferefire.
"No Ferefire", Jake contributed, "If that were
the case, we would have been there about some time last week"
"Not if I were to throw you in outer space. You would
never stop then. Hah!", Ferefire grinned.
"...I think I can answer my own question now guys"
"Really?", Jake was intrigued.
"Yeah...Snake way ends just over there in the distance",
"You're right! YAY! We did it!!!", Jake cheered.
They raced to the end of the road. Only to find what appeared
to be nothing at the end.
"...", they were all speechless.
"Isn't there meant to be something at the end of these
things?", Jake was puzzled.
"Nah! This is just for exercise. They are going to make
us fly up and down this road. OF COURSE THERE IS! LOOK FOR
IT YOU DOLT!", Ferefire snapped.
Finally after half a minute of searching, Alker spotted something.
"There's something that looks like a tiny planet over
there. That could be it", Alker began to fly towards
it. The rest followed.
As the gang began to descend onto the planet something strange
began to happen. Contrary to what Alker had assumed about
small planets having low gravity, the gravity on this world
was huge. Desperatly trying to slow his descent, he found
that this in addition to his weighted clothing which already
increased his weight by a factor of five times, was just too
"AGHHHH!!!!", he yelled as he collided with the
sphere, leaving a large cartoon shaped hole in the ground.
Alker only just managing to lift his body out of it(Ow he
hurt pretty bad after that fall), he noticed that a similar
thing had happened to Jake and Ferefire as well.
"Oh my god! I feel so heavy", Jake complained, "Its
this gravity. How?"
"Think about it", Ferefire interupted, "We
wear weighted clothing all the time. This is just another
way of training. Just think how strong you would become training
like this all day"
"I can bearly stand at the moment", Alker complained,
"Let alone train. Im taking my weights off"
"Cease your whining boy. You think that this will be
easy? We need to get twenty times stronger to rescue them.
I'm keeping them on. Let's go find this Kaio person"
After much searching they came to a domed house. A cadilac
was parked outside. To think that people still collected them,
even in the after life...
"That monkey kinda looks like he could be him",
Jake gestured. There was no one else present.
"Yeah, and that dance he's doing must make him really
strong. Hey! Are you Sami-Kaio sir?", Alker yelled.
Ferefire sighed. He was surrounded by morons. This was almost
embarassing. Marching over to the dome, he stepped in. The
interior of the building was compact, but homely nonetheless.
He spotted a blue creature, with a fish like face, and two
antenie originating from the top of his head, wearing dark
glasses which concealed his eyes. Over his almost balloon
like body he was wearing a black gi. Sitting at a chair around
a table of his, he seemed to be mildly amused, viewing the
scene of Alker and Jake imitating the monkey through the window.
"Excuse me, are you Sami-Kaio?"
"Well", came an odd sounding voice, which you might
only hear if you were to shove a blunt object up your nose,
"Give the man a banana", Kaio was somewhat impressed
that this man hadn't fallen for it. Almost all people who
visited him usually fell for his Bubbles trick, "Hahaha.
Maybe your friends could do with one as well", he winked.
"No thank you", Ferefire was totally perplexed.
Was this really the great Sami-Kaio that he had heard about?
He seemed to be slightly mad, "I will be brief. We have
come here for training under you. You are a great master are
"Well that may be..."
"Our friends, Alec and Hannah.Have you heard of them?"
"Alec and Hannah? two powerful warriors. Part of the
underground organisation against Gero on Earth? Recently captured
"Yes that is them. We want to become strong enough to
rescue them. Be able to defeat Dr Gero"
"Defeat Gero? Even Piccolo could not do that. I understand
your pain though. I can assure you though that they are still
"Are they?", Ferefire's hope brightened, "How
can you possibly tell?"
"I have my ways. Very well, I have decided...I will train
all of you on one condition"
"Oh yeah?", Ferefire wondered what on earth this
crazed master might count as a condition.
"...I want all of you to make me laugh"
"Huh? What? Okay...Let me think", Ferefire was not
incredibly surprised. He was obviously senile. Still Kaio
was apparently a great teacher. He felt it almost beneath
him, but he had to conjure up a joke.
"Um...", under pressure it is not as easy as it
"...so the rabbit said I'm just mixingmytoasties",
Ferefire racked his brains.
"No. No NO!You just can't tell a good joke. You are of
no use to me I'm afraid if you can't deliver the punch-line
"Okay. Hey! Aren't those two still out there", Ferefire
hastily changed the subject.
Sami-Kaio looked out of the window and burst into fits of
laughter. Jake and Alker were dancing in a line, following
"HahA", Kaio wiped the tears off his face, "Well
I think they've passed already"
"Shall I tell them?", Ferefire was metaphorically
rubbing his hands with glee. Jake and Alker would never hear
the end of it now.
"Haha! Don't worry. Soon enough I'll put them right.
We must hurry though", Kaio said with a sudden urgency
in his voice, "I don't think your friends have much time

The Good guys:-
The Bad guys:-
Royal Elites Z9566+P9825:-100,00-300,000+(16 of them, appearance
can vary-all wear 3 green bands, 3 have been destroyed, so
only 13 now)
These androids keep the normal population in check:-
Somewhere out there:-
Now excuse me as I Kamehameha the television company which
shows dbz here in Britain, since they didn't put any dbz repeats
on this weekend and I have thus lost this weeks episodes(NO!).
Yes the energy absorbing androids are like the ones in the
show, except there are more of them(thousands) and that they
are far weaker. Only A, B and C classes have energy absorption.
Elites do not require this for several reasons. Firstly there
are very few ki's high enough to make much difference and
secondly there are only a few of them, thus they can get recharged
