"I really didn't expect that there would be such an expert on Earth!" 17's handsome face was dark. It wasn't clear if 17 got angry because he had failed to kill Gohan, or because he was feeling extremely confused after finding out that there was still such an expert hiding on Earth.
Either way, that expert gave him a feeling of great danger. To think that aside from Gohan, there was still someone on the planet that could make him feel threatened. At that instant, although it was only the 1/10000th of a second, he really felt like his life was being threatened.
"The existence of that person is a threat to me, so they must be eradicated as soon as possible!" 17 thought in his heart, but then he immediately felt it laughable at the thoughts of the worry in his heart.
"That Solar Flare…it seems to be Tien Shinhan's technique! To think that there is still someone who can use this." 18 licked her lips. Her anger from just now was already gone, instead, a cruel and demonic smile was on her face.
17 soon regained his calm; he looked at his sister without any expression and sighed, "I had slightly miscalculated. If I had known, I would have killed Gohan much earlier. If they both join forces, it would really cause us a little inconvenience."
Of course, it was just a matter of inconvenience, and that's all. He believed that with his inexhaustible power, no matter who he was facing, he wouldn't lose.
"Hmph, I am not in a good mood right now, so I will go and destroy a few cities!" 18 stuck her hands into her pocket, sulking.
"Hehe, as you wish!"
17 looked at her indifferently and chuckled. "This sister of mine can be really childish sometimes." However, he was also the same. He would also wantonly destroy things if he lost in a game.
Earth was their playground, so they could wantonly play around.
On an island surrounded by a sea…
When she felt Gohan's aura suddenly weaken, Chichi guessed that something must have happened on the battlefield. Consequently, she directly fainted due to her helplessness. Seeing this, Videl quickly helped her up. "Aunt Chichi, quickly wake up!"
"What happened?" Master Roshi and Korin walked over.
"Master Roshi, Immortal Korin, Gohan, he…" Videl appeared anxious as she shouted with uneasiness.
Master Roshi sighed. He suddenly seemed to have aged by a lot. Feeling weak, the cane in his hand dropped, and he shook his head. "Gohan might not be in danger. Let's first help Chichi into the house."
Videl hurriedly nodded and followed Launch and the others to help Chichi into the house.
Since Goku's death, Gohan had been Chichi's spiritual pillar, but now, this pillar had suddenly collapsed. The shock towards Chichi could be well imagined. Quietly sighing, Master Roshi, who was wearing sunglasses, looked at the clear blue sky. The sky was clear, but it had always felt bleak in his eyes…
Perhaps, they should again find a place to take refuge.
At this time, in the refugee cave under the ruins…
Yajirobe was curled up, his whole body shivering as he muttered to himself, "Dead, another warrior is dead…"
After seeing this, the refugees next to him shook their heads. Another guy has lost his mind. They then kneeled in front of a shrine, and clasped both their hands and kept praying.
When Yajirobe saw this, his face showed an expression that was either of deathly silence or ridicule. These pitiful people don't even know that there is no god on earth to hear their prayers!
In a desolate and broken stone forest, a dry and cold wind swirled up the yellow sand. This place hadn't seen rain for many years. Due to the harsh environment, wild animals rarely set foot in this desolate place.
There was a brief flash of light, and then three figures had appeared on broken stones.
Placing Gohan horizontally on a slab and then Trunks, Xiaya stared carefully at the extremely miserable appearance of the two, his eyes narrowing.
Looking at the youth who was 80-90% similar to Bardock, Xiaya could roughly ascertain the year that he was in. It was definitely the world in the future, but it was not the future of Xiaya's original world; it was the future in the original work or a world similar to it.
No wonder there are no Saiyans on Planet Hongshan as it was not the world he was in before.
"Light purple hair with the Hoi-Poi Capsule Corporation's logo emblazoned on his clothes, this person should be Trunks!" Xiaya stared at Trunks for a while before moving his attention to Gohan.
Although Gohan was seriously injured, he hadn't completely lost consciousness yet. Suddenly seeing an unfamiliar person appear by his side, Gohan instinctively became alert. But after recalling that this person had saved them from the frightening Androids, his expression relaxed.
"Don't move around first!" Xiaya glanced at him, and then reached into his pocket and pulled out a small bag, before taking out a Senzu Bean and handing it over.
He knew that Gohan should also have a Senzu Bean. In the original work, even though his arm was seriously injured, Gohan gave the only remaining Senzu Bean to Trunks who was only lightly injured. From this point, it can be seen that Gohan is a good big brother. But this was not the best choice.
At that time, Gohan's strength was far above Trunks, and Trunks was still not a Super Saiyan. So, Gohan's value in exchange for Trunks safety; strategically, this choice was not sensible.
"This is…Senzu Bean?"
Gohan's pale face burst into a surprise. He opened his eyes slightly with difficulty; it was as if he had exhausted all his strength in accepting the Senzu Bean.
"Yes, you should be clear about the effect of a Senzu Bean, so don't talk and just eat it quickly!"
Seeing that he was so tired, Xiaya sent Senzu Bean directly into his mouth.
Gohan chewed the Senzu Bean, and the broken bones in his arm were connected again. He was shocked in his heart, and he couldn't help but guess the other's identity.
Who is this young man, and why does he have Senzu Beans which are a precious resource on earth? The yield of Senzu Beans had reduced since 20 years ago, and then later, the Korin Tower was destroyed, causing the source of Senzu Beans to be cut off. Now, he had the last one which he was saving and wouldn't easily use.
Who is this person? He has a human's aura, so he couldn't be an Android. He casually gave the precious Senzu Bean to me, so he shouldn't have evil intentions; but when did such an expert appear on Earth?
Although Gohan still had a lot of questions in his heart, he understood that it was not the time to ask. He lightly jumped and arrived next to Trunks. He carefully took out the last Senzu Bean and fed it to Trunks.
Xiaya narrowed his eyes and shook his head, but he did not stop Gohan. In fact, Trunks' life was not in danger, so using a Senzu Bean at this time was just a waste.
But it was Gohan's choice, and he also couldn't say anything.
After eating the Senzu Bean, the injuries on Trunks' body quickly recovered.
"Big brother Gohan, are you okay?" Trunks woke up and asked with concern. Gohan laughed and said to Trunks, "It was this Mister who saved us and treated my injuries with a Senzu Bean."
"Right, this mister…"
Xiaya frowned slightly and said with a smile, "Call me Xiaya."
"So, Mr. Xiaya, may I ask who you are? Why do you have Senzu Beans, and what you just used… Was it a superpower?"
Gohan asked a series of questions. In the end, even he felt it was somewhat inconceivable. Instantly traveling thousands of li*, if it was not a superpower then what could it be.
[*one thousand li = 500km]
"My ability is called Instant Transmission. It can be used to lock onto space around a target and teleport anywhere. "Seeing Gohan's astonished expression, Xiaya smiled and patiently explained. In this world, Goku hadn't stayed on Planet Yardrat, so Gohan had no knowledge about the ability, Instant Transmission. "As for why I have Senzu Beans, they did originate from Earth, but I also have them planted on the planet I live on."
"Mr. Xiaya is not a human from Earth?" Trunks showed a surprised expression.
"I am not an earthling… I am a Saiyan just like your father!" Xiaya said.
Hearing this, Gohan was absent-minded for a while before he said in disbelief, "You're a Saiyan? But… Vegeta said that he and my dad were the only Saiyans in the universe." There used to be Nappa and Raditz, but they died when the Saiyans invaded earth 18 years ago.
Xiaya raised his eyebrows and smiled. "What Vegeta said wasn't wrong. In this universe, there are really only two Saiyans, he and Goku. However, now there are none left. But, did I say that I was a Saiyan of this space-time continuum?"
When Gohan heard Xiaya say that there were no Saiyans in the universe, his countenance couldn't help but turn dark; but then, he heard the latter half of Xiaya's sentence and was stupefied. "Mr. Xiaya, what do you mean by, not from this space-time continuum? Could it be that there is another parallel universe?"
Soon, Gohan revealed disbelief on his face. When he was young, he was determined to become a scholar, so he knows some relevant information regarding this. In addition, he had interacted with Bulma for a long time and gained a lot of knowledge.
Xiaya shrugged. "It means literally what I said. I'm not a Saiyan from your space-time continuum. Because of an accident, I am stranded here. In my original world, the course of time hasn't yet developed to this year. Well, your grandfather, Bardock, is working for me, and your father, Goku, is still only nine years old."
Listening to him, Gohan was speechless.
Mr. Xiaya has come from the past, and my father is still only nine years old?
After a good while, Gohan reacted. If this was really the case, then the past could still be saved! Gohan hurriedly said, " Mr. Xiaya, you have just seen the strength of those Androids. Their power is far beyond our imagination. If you can return to your original world, please stop them from appearing!"
He understood that there was already not much hope for this world, but at least the past, in Xiaya's original world, could still be saved!
Xiaya glanced at Gohan with amazement. This kid's brain moves very fast. "If I go back, then you can rest assured concerning this."
"Right, I just saw that your Super Saiyan state is not sufficiently stable; otherwise, with your Battle Power, at least you wouldn't be in such a difficult situation even if you can't defeat the Androids!"
Xiaya had previously observed Gohan's Battle Power with "Spirit Eye secret skill". Clearly, Gohan had a Battle Power of almost 500 million in his Super Saiyan state. Although there was still a gap between him and the Androids, 500 million was in fact not weak. It could be regarded as a peak fighting force in the storyline of dragon ball Z. However, it wasn't clear why whenever Gohan exhibited his power, it would always disperse, giving a false feeling!
In the original work's world, with Gohan's latent talent, it shouldn't be so. Is it because there is no one to give him pointers?
"Super Saiyan? Mr. Xiaya, what are you talking about?" Gohan asked with puzzlement. It was the first time that he had heard this name: Super Saiyan.
"You don't know about Super Saiyan? It's the state you were in when you were fighting before!"
Xiaya was startled and immediately thought of something. He suddenly transformed into the blond-haired and green-eyed Super Saiyan form. A vigorous and vast aura rushed in and raised a thick layer of Ki wall.
Gohan pressed his hand on his forehead, withstanding the Ki wall; his eyes widened with shock. After Mr. Xiaya transformed into Golden Flame state, his Ki rose much higher than mine. Of course, more importantly, Mr. Xiaya's Ki is thicker, and his temperament is much more awe-inspiring than mine!
"Such powerful Ki." Trunks was already stunned.
"This imposing aura is as deep and strong as Dad and Vegeta; no, it is even stronger by a little bit," Gohan muttered in a low voice, surprise on his face.
Androids may not be Mr. Xiaya's match.
"Mr. Xiaya, so you are also a Golden Flame Warrior!" Gohan shouted excitedly.
This time it was Xiaya's turn to be stunned. What the hell is a Golden Flame Warrior? I just transformed into Super Saiyan. Can it be that it is not addressed as Super Saiyan in this world?
"Wait, Gohan, you just called this state of mine as 'Golden Flame Warrior'. Can it be that you haven't heard of Super Saiyan?" Xiaya asked.
Gohan froze. "Super Saiyan?"
Xiaya rolled his eyes. It was clear that Gohan didn't know what Super Saiyan was.
Xiaya rubbed his temple and asked, "Is there no legend of Super Saiyans among the Saiyan race? Then, who is the first person to transform into the so-called Golden Flame Warrior?"
"Of course, it was my father, Goku! On Planet Namek, because of Uncle Krillin's death, father transformed into a blonde-haired 'Golden Flame Warrior' in a state of anger. Because his body was surrounded by golden energy, he was named Golden Flame warrior," Gohan said confidently.
Then, he spoke about what he had experienced.
After listening to Gohan's description, Xiaya more or less found the source of the problem.
"It seems that the problem is here. To think that you don't even have the legend of Super Saiyans here!" Xiaya understood.
But, if there is no legend of Super Saiyan in this world, then, why did the Frieza in this world want to destroy Planet Vegeta? Why is there still a storyline afterward?
Xiaya thought for a moment and suddenly reacted. He seemed to have heard about it before. When Frieza destroyed Planet Vegeta, it seemed that he had been instructed by the God of Destruction, Beerus. Then, it made sense now. Whether there was a legend of Super Saiyan or not, Planet Vegeta would still have been destroyed.
Wait, this space-time doesn't have the legend of Super Saiyans, that is to say, Bardock didn't travel to the past?
Xiaya's expression became odd. Is the reason for this parallel world's existence because I saved Bardock when Planet Vegeta was destroyed? So this parallel world was the closest to his original world, and that's why he first arrived here when he passed through the space-time crack.
He had thought about it before. If he saved Bardock and not let him time travel to the past, then would it produce a world without the Super Saiyan legend? And quite clearly that parallel world had been created.
And it turned out to be this world in which he was now in.
When he crossed to the Dragon Ball world, it caused the original work's world to create an original world "where he lived". Later, because he saved Bardock, again a world of "Golden Flame Warrior" was created.
So excluding those parallel worlds in the original work, there were three parallel universes that he knew about.
"Gohan, why is your Super Saiyan state so weak? According to your Normal State's Battle Power, you shouldn't be so weak after transforming into Super Saiyan. It may be beyond your power to deal with both the Androids, but at least you can fight for a while!"
Androids of this space-time continuum were a lot weaker than in the original work's world, and with his strength, he could deal with one of them. Although Gohan couldn't be compared to him, he still shouldn't be so useless.
Gohan smiled bitterly. "Although I had experienced some battles when I was young, I did not accept systematic training. My foundation is not good. Later, because of Uncle Piccolo, Vegeta, and the others' deaths, I explored everything related to training by myself."
Xiaya finally understood. Goku and Vegeta also explored the road of Super Saiyans by themselves, but unlike Gohan, they both had a good martial arts foundation. They could be said to be people who had steadily progressed.
And Gohan, except for one year in his childhood when he followed Piccolo's training, he basically had not trained properly the rest of the time. When the Great Elder of Planet Namek suddenly increased his strength by too much, although enhancing potential was not harmful, it was not still good for Gohan whose foundation was too weak; then later, because the dragon ball warriors died one after the other, only a few people were able to give him pointers.
Such that he has now diverged from the correct path, and wasted so many years for no reason.
If he followed the original path, Gohan would eventually be killed by the Androids; which would be a waste of such good talent.
