After making the wish with the new Planet Namek's dragon balls, Xiaya and the others bid farewell to the Namekians and returned to Earth.
In West City, all the reconstruction work was being carried out in an orderly manner. Faced with the dense crowd, the ruins of West City could not accommodate so many people, so the people could only live in simple tents.
After reuniting with friends who they had not seen for many years, Bulma and Launch looked at each other and smiled as they happily welcomed them.
"Gohan, you did very well. I have been watching your performance these few years from Underworld," Piccolo—who was wearing a cloak—said, his stiff face revealing a smile. Piccolo was a person who doesn't often express his emotions, but he really cares about Gohan. In many ways, Piccolo was even more of a father to Gohan than Goku.
"Uncle Piccolo!" Gohan excitedly stepped forward and cried out.
On the other side, Trunks stood in front of Vegeta shyly. He felt unfamiliarity to the father he had never met.
Vegeta coldly snorted and said, "Your performance was not bad, although not as good as Kakarrot's son…"
Saying this, Vegeta glanced at Trunks with his hands folded across his chest. Trunks was only 14 years old and he had become a Super Saiyan. Concerning this, Vegeta was actually very pleased, but the pride of a Saiyan prince made it difficult for him to express the feelings in his heart.
"Father!" Trunks cried out.
Vegeta was dumbfounded for a moment before he lightly coughed and said, "You will follow me to train later on. I must properly teach you how to train so that you can surpass that brat, Gohan, as soon as possible! You are a descendant of the Saiyan's royal family and can't lose to the son of a low-level warrior. Understand?"
Trunks was surprised, "My father is really just like how my mother described him to be. He is very prideful, and due to this, he is not good at expressing his feelings." However, Trunks could tell that Vegeta really cares about him, his son.
Getting away from the enthusiastic Trunks, Vegeta arrived in front of Xiaya. "Mr. Xiaya, thank you very much," The prideful Vegeta politely said.
Xiaya was a little surprised, then he smiled and nodded. It seemed that living in the Underworld for more than a decade had changed Vegeta a lot.
"Can you tell me about the situation in the other world?" Vegeta asked.
"Of course!" Xiaya smiled and replied, then vividly informed Vegeta about the situation of his world. When Vegeta heard that Xiaya brought away more than 10,000 Saiyans when Planet Vegeta was destroyed and built a new home on Planet Hongshan, he was so excited that his face turned bright red. In Vegeta's heart, his race occupies a large proportion, even if they were the Saiyans of a different space-time. He was happy when he learned that they were developing and expanding.
"Those Saiyans are really lucky to have a leader like you," Vegeta said with a sigh. He could tell that under the leadership of Xiaya, the Saiyans had gone far beyond their golden age of the past.
"I have also heard about that Myers. She used to be a genius on par with me. Unfortunately, she died later on Planet Vegeta. However, I have never heard of your name before, Mr. Xiaya."
Vegeta was doubtful. "Xiaya", had made outstanding achievements in the other space-time, but why had he never heard of "Xiaya" in his space-time.
Xiaya muttered in his heart, It would actually be unbelievable if you had heard about me, and even if this world really had an aboriginal Saiyan called "Xiaya", he would have just been an ordinary Mid-level Warrior, not a transmigrator like me.
Unexpectedly, "Xiling" and "Myers" of this world are already dead.
"Maybe history panned out a little different!" Xiaya casually found a reason and dodged the question.
Vegeta nodded, not suspicious of him. This was already a past history to him. Besides, this world didn't even have the legend of Super Saiyan, so it was obvious that both worlds were different. There was no point in being confused.
"Right, you talked about the classification of Super Saiyan's levels, and I also pondered on it when I was in Underworld. I reckoned that I should have still been able to do an even more powerful transformation above Super Saiyan Full Power, but unfortunately, I didn't have a physical body at that time and couldn't train."
"Amazing!" Xiaya was surprised.
Vegeta could even vaguely guess about the Super Saiyan 2 stage, but thinking more about it, Vegeta was originally a talented and intelligent person; however, it's a pity that he couldn't train in Underworld, and after pondering for more than ten years, perhaps he had already thoroughly thought about the Super Saiyan realms.
Xiaya said, "Maybe above the first stage of Super Saiyan, there is a higher transformation!"
"Well, I have plenty of time to properly train. Unfortunately, that bastard, Kakarrot, is now in Heaven; maybe he had already taken that step," Vegeta suddenly cursed.
Goku was different from Vegeta. Goku was a person who had done many great deeds, so he could retain his physical body after death. Now, Goku may have already trained to the Super Saiyan 2 stage in Heaven; no, based on time frame, maybe he had already developed Super Saiyan 3.
"Hey, Mr. Xiaya, don't you want to go back to your own world? I have thought about it, and maybe you can use the power of Earth's dragon balls to return," Bulma walked over with a pile of delicious food and said.
Xiaya shook his head. Earth's Shenron definitely couldn't help him regarding this method of traveling through space-time, but after having second thoughts, a bright light suddenly flashed through his mind.
What Bulma said was also not wrong! Although Shenron couldn't help him to travel through space-time, he could help him find a method on how to go back. Just like later in the original storyline when the God of Destruction, Beerus, was searching for a Super Saiyan God, he achieved his objective by making a wish using Shenron.
"Right, right, Shenron might have a solution!" Xiaya suddenly became elated.
Bulma smiled and shouted at Trunks, "Quick, go and bring Earth's dragon balls!"
Earlier on when Android 17, 18 had first appeared—in order to prepare for unforeseen circumstances—Bulma and others started collecting the seven dragon balls, but they couldn't make a wish, as Piccolo was already killed by the Androids.
"Umm!" Trunks answered. He then ran into the house and quickly picked up a large plate with seven dark-orange colored dragon balls placed on it.
Following the summon, the sky turned dark, and soon, Shenron's slender figure was floating in the sky. His green scales moved back and forth through the dark clouds, as a sinister head peeked down from the dense clouds.
Xiaya looked solemn as he said, "Shenron, do you know about parallel universe?"
Shenron was silent for a moment before he said, "I didn't know before, but now I know!"
"Please tell me how to travel through time and space," Xiaya shouted loudly, and then nervously waited for Shenron's answer.
Shenron lowered his head and said, "Time travel is strictly forbidden by the gods, because traveling back and forth through a timeline can have irreversible consequences, but if a parallel universe already exists, then there is a method to travel between two parallel universe!"
"What method?" Xiaya asked impatiently.
"If you use Supreme Kai's Time Ring, you can indeed jump between parallel universes; however, only Supreme Kais can use Time Ring. Moreover, they can't bring along mortals when jumping between parallel universes!"
In a sense, Supreme Kai's were a special kind of living beings. They maintained order in the universe, and their duty was to protect the universe. Therefore, even if they traveled through time and space, they would not behave in a way that would harm the universe.
"Time Ring!" Xiaya muttered in a low voice, etching this name in his heart.
As for whether only Supreme Kais could use it or not, Xiaya intended to give it a try first.
Kai's Planet in the higher-dimension…
North Kai looked at the scene of Xiaya summoning Shenron with a shock and said, "Supreme Kai? There is really a Supreme Kai in this world?! I thought they were just a legend!"
As the gods ruling over all Kais and Grand Kai, Supreme Kais were extremely noble and mysterious existences. Even North Kai—who was in charge of one-quarter of the universe—had never seen a Supreme Kai's august appearance before.
"Aiya, if Supreme Kais really exist, why didn't they appear when the God of Destruction was born! My pitiful planet… ahh!"
North Kai was saddened as he bawled, feeling as if he had been abandoned.
If Supreme Kai could have taken action when God of Destruction was destroying his planet, then it wouldn't be so small now.
However, North Kai was really wrongly accusing Supreme Kai.
It must be known that a disaster—which swept throughout the whole universe—broke out on the Sacred World of the Kai in ancient times, and later on, Supreme Kai was swallowed by Majin Buu. There was already no one who knew about the legend of God of Destruction, Beerus, and the only surviving East Supreme Kai was still very young, and he had only paid attention to Majin Buu, and didn't know that there was an existence like the God of Destruction in the universe; because besides sleeping, the God of Destruction, Beerus, only played around in the mortal world, and rarely meddled in the Sacred World of the Kai's matters.
In the end, Kai did not know about the existence of Supreme Kai, and Supreme Kai did not know about the existence of God of Destruction; yet, the mortal world's Kai had seen the God of Destruction. It's really confusing.
Chapter 287 The method to go back
After learning from Shenron that the Time Ring could be used to travel through time and space, Xiaya etched the name "Time Ring" in his heart. He planned to ask Supreme Kai to let him try the Time Ring. Of course, this was only a backup plan, because the success rate was extremely low; it was only a possibility, and Xiaya did not have much hope towards this plan.
Xiaya said to Bulma, "For the time being, put aside the matter of the Time Ring, and please hasten the research of the Interdimensional Travel Device."
"Umm, I know!" Bulma nodded. She was feeling very good as Vegeta and others had been resurrected, and she suddenly looked much younger.
"Mr. Xiaya, do you plan to look for the Supreme Kai from legends?" Gohan and Videl came over and asked again in surprise, "Didn't Shenron say that only Supreme Kai can use the Time Ring?"
Xiaya looked at both of them and said, "Although Shenron did say that the Time Ring can only be used by Supreme Kai's, I would surely feel unwilling if I don't try it!"
After that, he sized up Gohan and Videl and thought, "It seems that Gohan and Videl will also end up together in this world."
Due to the havoc brought on by Android 17 and 18, this world's storyline was greatly different from the original work's main world. Take Majin Buu for instance, Xiaya was sure that this world definitely have Majin Buu, and just like Future Trunks' world, this world's Majin Buu had not yet come to Earth.
Majin Buu needed a lot of energy to wake up. Perhaps, Babidi saw that Earth had become like a hell and that the number of living creatures left were very few, so he gave up the intention of waking Majin Buu on the Earth.
But now that Earth had recovered—even the dragon ball warriors such as Vegeta have been resurrected—perhaps Babidi will set his sights on Earth again; Xiaya was not sure if this could be considered a blessing or a disaster.
Cough! Cough! "Mr. Xiaya, Supreme Kai's whereabouts is not known, so you will not be able to find the Supreme Kai!" At this time, a gentle voice suddenly echoed in the sky; everyone present heard this voice.
It was North Kai's voice.
"North Kai!" Xiaya was slightly startled.
North Kai's voice was heard again, saying, "If it wasn't because you had summoned Shenron this time, I wouldn't even have known that there really was a Supreme Kai in this world. Your intention to borrow the Time Ring from Supreme Kai is basically impossible."
If XIaya couldn't even find the Supreme Kai, it was naturally impossible to talk about borrowing the Time Ring. However, North Kai didn't know that there was a star chart of the entire universe in Xiaya's mind, including Sacred World of the Kai.
Xiaya smiled and said, "There is nothing that is impossible, not to mention that I know of Supreme Kai's whereabouts."
Hearing that, North Kai was taken aback and then he exclaimed, "What?! You know the whereabouts of Supreme Kai?"
Even North Kai had only found out about the existence of Supreme Kai just now, yet a mortal like Xiaya knew the whereabouts of Supreme Kai? But as he recalled that Xiaya was a Saiyan from another space-time, it was more acceptable to him that Xiaya, perhaps, knew something.
Xiaya nodded and said to North Kai, "Supreme Kais live in the Sacred World of the Kai which is in the highest dimension of the universe. In the ancient times, there were North, South, East, and West Supreme Kai, as well as Grand Supreme Kai—who rules over everything—making a total of five Supreme Kais, who all lived in Sacred World of the Kai. However, due to an extremely powerful demon that brought chaos to the world, only East Supreme Kai is left now."
"You know so many things; did all this happen in the other world?" North Kai asked in surprise.
"Yes," Xiaya replied.
North Kai sighed and said, "Matters relating to space-time are really complicated. Forget it… If you are able to meet the Supreme Kai, please say hello to him on behalf of this old man."
"All right," Xiaya readily agreed.
Then, he chatted with Bulma and others for a while. After that, he went to train in seclusion. Before going to Sacred World of the Kai, Xiaya needed to improve his strength again.
At the moment, Xiaya was still at the peak of Ordinary Super Saiyan level, which was quite close to Ascended Super Saiyan level. However, Xiaya's strength in the current Super Saiyan mode was not weaker than Vegeta, who had came out of the Hyperbolic Time Chamber when after entering it for the first time in the original work.
But this little amount of strength was still not enough, as he was going to the Sacred World of the Kai.
Sometimes, when one is equipped with sufficient strength, it will enable conversations to go smoothly; whether it's to deter by strength or to converse as equals, strength is necessary to have the upper hand.
Sacred World of the Kai was located in the highest dimension of Universe 7, which was hard to reach for every god. Supreme Kais—who live in the Sacred World of the Kai—are divine existences, and they have the supreme authority to rule over the whole universe.
A Supreme Kai is usually responsible for creating life and planets and maintaining the basic equilibrium of the universe. However, unlike the God of Destruction who destroys, a Supreme Kai's strength gear more towards protecting, thereby lacking absolute strength like that of a God of Destruction; however, that doesn't imply that a Supreme Kai isn't strong. On the contrary, a Supreme Kai is very strong, but just weaker when compared to Majin Buu and a God of Destruction.
Every Supreme Kai has the ability to pinch Frieza to death with just one hand.
Although East Supreme Kai seemed quite weak in front of Majin Buu, Xiaya knew that East Supreme Kai was, in fact, very strong. He might not be as strong as King Dabura of the Demon Realm, but he definitely had Battle Power that was close to Full Power Super Saiyan.
East Supreme Kai had a relatively gentle personality and could be regarded as a good-natured person; however, his attendant, Kibito, was the troublesome one. Kibito slightly looked down on the Earthlings of the mortal world, which was understandable as a god. So, if Xiaya intends to borrow the Time Ring from East Supreme Kai, he would need to further improve his strength.
To forge iron, one must be strong, and the prerequisite for conversing as equals was to have sufficient strength to match.
Afterward, Xiaya found a lush mountain plateau and began training. He first had to reach the realm of Ascended Super Saiyan as soon as possible. By then, with his high-level strength amplification, he would basically have strength at the level of Cell Perfect Form.
Training was dull and tedious work, and Xiaya was training alone on the plateau. He trained for two months and was later joined by Vegeta—who couldn't help himself and joined him. As time flowed on, they both made rapid progress.
After another three months, Xiaya had his wish fulfilled as he finally broke through the limit of Ordinary Super Saiyan and reached the Ascended Super Saiyan realm.
His strength increased by 50 times under Normal State in Initial and Ordinary Super Saiyan realm and increased by 65 times in Ascended Super Saiyan realm, while in Full Power Super Saiyan; because he got adapted to the Super Saiyan transformation everyday, he could perform even more powerful transformations during battles, thereby increasing his strength by approximately 80 times.
At this time, Xiaya had broken through the Ordinary Super Saiyan realm and reached the third stage of Super Saiyan 1, because the method which he used to reach the Super Saiyan level differed from Goku and Vegeta's methods. As they say, if the first step was fast, then every successive step would also be fast. His current strength was not weaker than Full Power Super Saiyan, reaching an astonishing 80-times amplification.
"Xiaya, your strength after transforming is so much higher than mine!" The Blonde-haired and green-eyed Vegeta looked at Xiaya's Super Saiyan form incredulously. He had also surpassed the Ordinary Super Saiyan realm, but Xiaya was much more powerful than him.
"This may be because of a strong foundation," Xiaya smiled and said.
An increase in strength up to 80 times resulting in 4 billion batter power, had enabled Xiaya to reach the level of Cell Perfect form in one fell swoop. In this Universe 7, currently, only a few people would have a higher battle Power than Xiaya.
Vegeta snorted with a stiff face but did not refute.
As a purebred Saiyan, and similarly being the elite of the Saiyan race, Vegeta and Xiaya got along well. He knew that Xiaya did not rely on intense anger to break through the Super Saiyan realm, and naturally broke through the limits of the body. The advantages brought by such a breakthrough method were obvious.
Sacred World of the Kai.
Numerous divine planets were revolving in this vast and sacred space.
It was a verdant grassland with round planets casting their shadow upon the blue sky. The whole place was permeated with sacredness. Suddenly, a beam of light flashed on the grassland, and Xiaya's figure appeared on the Sacred World of the Kai.
"It is empty as always," As he said this, Xiaya took a deep breath of the refreshing aura of Sacred World of the Kai, and let out a sigh.
After breaking through the Ordinary Super Saiyan realm on Earth, he came to the Sacred World of the Kai by himself to try his luck, as he could gradually feel that Bulma's research was not making any progress.
