“I hope that they are ok.”
“Goku! Vegeta! Can you hear me?”
As these concerned voices made their way into Goku’s ear, he tried to remember where he was and who were these people. Then he remembered. Evil Adam had attacked them. One single attack had got the better of the three most amazing Z-warriors. He had fainted after the attack. Adam had fired a chi blast in the sky. It had some adverse effects but he had to wait till the seguinte dia to find out what it was.
He opened his eyes. They were all at Bulma’s home. Vegeta was still lying on the cama while Piccolo was just getting up. “How are we here…?” Piccolo asked. “Trunks and Gohan were passing por the sea, where you people were. They brought you here,” Bulma replied.
goku knew that he had to give away Adam’s secret. He told the others about what had happened. “What?” Bulma said. She could not believe her ears. Adam looked ashamed of himself. “It’s all my fault,” he said, “I wish I was never born.” “Adam!” goku said sharply, “Mind you if you ever think that again! Everyone has some evil in them you know. That’s nature’s law!”
“But what will happen tomorrow?” Gohan wondered, “It must be something terrible. Something awful.” “Let’s see,” goku said.
The seguinte dia goku woke up with a light feeling. He felt a bit younger inside. He crept into the banheiro, casa de banho to wash his face when he saw himself in the mirror.
“AAHH!” he cried. He was younger! His age had decreased por 5 years. “This is impossible!” he thought. He hurried into the bedroom to look at Chi Chi. She too looked 5 years younger. goku was tensed now. He took flight to Gohan’s house. “Father! You too!” Gohan cried. His age had too lessened por five years. goku saw Pan then and he was shocked.
All the adults’ age had decreased por five years but Pan, who was a child, looked five years older! Vegeta flew in at that time. “Vegeta! Our ages! Something’s wrong!” “Kakarot, don’t be so stupid! You know what’s wrong!” Vegeta replied. goku thought.
Of course. Adam.
He had fired an attack in the sky. It had mixed with the air. The adults were becoming younger at the rate of five years per dia whereas the children, below the age of twenty, were ageing.
“What a novel idea!” Gohan exclaimed, amazed and repulsed at the same time. “What will we do now Vegeta?” goku asked. He was too anxious and he did not hide it.
“I think I know what to do.”
They wheeled around and saw the Evil Adam. “You brat!” goku cried. Adam chuckled.
“You have to do a very simple thing,” Adam said, “Just kill me and the spell will break.” goku knew very well that they could not kill him. There were two main reasons. Firstly they were not strong enough to kill him and secondly the good Adam would also die. goku was horribly reminded of the time when he had been forced to kill Aron. Would he have to do it again?
“Do whatever you wish to,” Adam said, “But remember, you have very few days left. So act quickly. Bye!” Gohan fired his Kamehameha attack at Adam. “Useless Gohan!” Adam said, “There’s no way you can defeat me. Not now, at least. But there is one way in which you can kill me. Just finish off the other Adam. That will result in my death. See, I’ve helped you a lot. I’ve even told you of my weakness. Now be practical and get out of this problem.”
He flew away.
Vegeta fell to his knees. He had realized it before but to think that he would have to kill his Adam… It was depressing. He wanted to cry then, clutching his Adam tightly but he controlled himself. “What should we do Kakarot?” he asked.
goku looked at him for a while. “We train,” he said, “And battle him in two days.” “We’ll never be strong enough to defeat him por training for two days!” Vegeta and Gohan said together.
“We might, actually,” goku said, “If we just know what to do!” He smiled to himself and then took flight.
