Goku, with new found strength, charged Cell and speared him in his midsection. Cell grabbed Goku around his waist and fell back a few feet. Goku pulled back and broke Cell's hold on him. They both stood up straight and stood face to face again just staring at each other. Finally Cell spoke.
"So, are you going to pull the same moves as your dead friend did, because its getting old really fast."
"You want something new Cell?" Goku countered with a smirk. "Here you go!" Goku began to power up almost to his maximum but he kept some of his strength for later.
Cell smirked not impressed. "Seen it," he laughed.
This made Goku a little mad and he wanted to use his signature move but he felt the time wasn't right to pull that trick out of the hat. His Saiyan pride said he needed to play a little more.
"All right Cell, how about we spice it up a bit," Goku said with a smile. "Hey guys! You wanna fight?" he called to the rest of the Z fighters.
The Z fighters brightened up at the prospect of getting some action finally. "Do you think you can take all of us at once?"
Cell crossed his arms and his smirk widened. "Been there, done that," he replied with a mocking yawn.
"Well let's try it again." The Z fighters crowded around Goku getting into their most threatening fighting stances.
"Okay," Cell said. "But if you are trying to wear me down you will have to work harder than you have been."
"Oh we'll bring it!" Yamcha said and the others nodded in agreement making manly grunts (haha! That's funny….okay, I don't know what I'm talking about I just felt like making a note here since I haven't interjected in a long time, at least you still love me right! Right?).
"Bring it?" Cell repeated questioningly. "You humans are so weird," he muttered to himself.
"Yeah that's right we're weird!" Tien yelled back without thinking.
Piccolo looked at him annoyed out of the corner of his eye. "Idiot," he said under his breath.
"Yeah I heard that!" Tien called to the green man.
"What are you going to do about it three eyes!" Piccolo said turning on him. Suddenly they were toe to toe and chest to chest.
Goku turned around angrily. "Enough!" he yelled.
Cell started laughing loudly. "Aww how touching. A lovers tryst. Do you think we could get back to fighting sometime soon?" he asked with a smirk.
Piccolo and Tien immediately leapt apart embarrassed and angry. "Let's just do this," Piccolo said while clearing his throat.
"Yes let's," Cell said.
The fighters again got into a fighting stance. Cell smiled to himself. 'They have no plan. This is going to be easy. I think I'll take the tough guy out first then pick off the others one by one. Yes, that's what I'll do.'
Goku was still deep in thought as they were preparing. He could see Cell was thinking also. 'He thinks we have no plan. Which we don't. That makes us vulnerable."
Tien notice that Goku was thinking and not paying attention. He leaned over and whispered his name. Goku turned his head startled. Tien kept talking. "Goku, what the hell are we going to do? Do you have a plan?"
Goku thought a moment before answering. "Well I am not real sure, I'm thinking that maybe we should just wing it for a while and maybe something will come to me."
Tien groaned a little bit and Piccolo leaned into whisper to Goku. "We have been winging it. It hasn't worked too well so far."
"I know," Goku replied, "but there is nothing we can do about it. Until I see how he really works then I can't figure out a way to take him down. We just have to wear him out without taking all of our energy. So right now why don't we hit and run a little bit."
"Right!" The fighters said in unison.
"Are we about ready?" Cell asked with an all-knowing smirk on his face. Goku smirked back putting up his bluff. Maybe if he seemed confident the monster would think twice and be on his guard.
"Let's do this," Krillen said.
The fighters flexed their muscles and prepared to fight. Done with all the stalling the Z fighters were ready to pull out all the stops, whatever those may be. Cell stood ready and his opposition leaned back into a position that made them look like they were cats ready to pounce. Then Goku yelled, "GO!" and they began their assault once more but with new found strength. They had Goku on their side and nothing could touch them. Or so they thought.
