Vegeta walked down the hallway towards what used to be their room, now Bulma's room once more. He couldn't feel her Ki anywhere and was beginning to get worried. Vegeta opened the door to Bulma's room and looked around. Bulma was no where to be seen. Vegeta walked out the door to the balcony. Bulma wasn't there either. The sun was just coming over the horizon. It cast the sky pink and orange. Vegeta shook his head and turned to go leave.
He went to her lab to see if she was working on one of her toys. The lab was silent and cold. Vegeta noticed something on the table, a blueprint of some kind. He walked over and looked at it. It was a drawing of a machine with knobs all over it and a screen. Then Vegeta looked at the right corner of the blueprint. It read: Can read Ki's that are higher than that of a human. Vegeta thought for a moment and then it hit him. "Bulma you idiot," Vegeta said his heart beginning to race again.
How could she do this? Was she really that stupid as to go against Cell? Then Vegeta realized that she was doing this so he would save her. What did she expect for him to save her and they would be back together again? Would the Woman stop at nothing to get him back? She would seriously risk her life to get him back. She was out of hand and Vegeta would tell her as much if she wasn't already dead. The thought made his heart twist with rage and anguish. How could she be so stupid?
Vegeta was already out of the door and shooting off into the air with the last thought. He would find her and he didn't need a pointless device to help him with that. He concentrated his mind to her Ki and finally sensed it where they fought last. Her Ki was still strong, well as strong as it was to begin with. Vegeta flew faster but no speed would be fast enough for him.
Meanwhile Bulma was facing her own struggle with her fear and idiocy. How could she have been this stupid? Cell was walking slowly towards her with a smirk on his face. He looked more menacing than anyone Bulma had ever seen.
She stared to back up but was stopped when she was smack up against a tree. Bulma's breathing was out of control. She didn't know what to do. Why did she do it? Was she really that stupid? Yes she was. Cell was almost to her. Bulma closed her eyes and waited for the end.
Cell stopped in front of her. Bulma could sense him near her. She opened one eye and stared up at him. He was bigger up close. "Well, well," Cell started. "What do we have here? What's a beautiful thing like you doing all the way out here with little ole me?" he asked her grinning from ear to ear.
"I-Well-I just. I-was, umm," Bulma stuttered.
Cell started laughing and grabbed her by the waist with both hands and lifted her to eye level. Bulma squeaked and stood perfectly still.
Suddenly there were some noises over on the other end of the clearing. "Put her down," a rough voice said. Bulma squealed again when she saw Vegeta standing, arms crossed his game face on, a few feet away. Suddenly the rest of the Z fighters appeared. They were startled by what they saw.
Cell just started laughing. "What are you going to do about it shorty?" he asked.
"She's not your enemy Cell I am," Vegeta said.
"We are," Yamcha corrected him.
"Whatever," Vegeta replied.
"Fine," Cell said. He set Bulma down slowly. Bulma was thoroughly shocked by this point. She just stared down up at him.
"Maybe she doesn't want to go?" Cell said. "I mean she is just standing here."
"Come on Bulma!" Krillen yelled.
Bulma opened her mouth to say something but didn't she nodded her head and started walking to them. Then she started running. She ran into Vegeta and held onto him tightly.
Vegeta didn't reciprocate the hug but he did whisper in her ear. "I'm going to kill you when we get home I hope you know that," he told her.
"I know Vegeta," Bulma smiled.
"Get out of here," he told her and she nodded.
"What is this shorty?" Cell asked. "Is this your Woman?"
"She's nothing to me," Vegeta said pushing her away.
"Go," he whispered out of the corner of his mouth. Bulma started walking away.
"She means nothing to you is that right?" Cell asked. "Well than I guess you won't mind if I…" Cell reached out his hand and formed a Ki ball.
"Nooo," Vegeta screamed. Bulma turned around to look at him then looked at Cell. It happened so fast Vegeta wasn't able to get to her in time. Cells Ki ball went through her piercing her heart. Bulma stood still for a moment as if in shock. She looked at Vegeta wide eyed then she collapsed.
Vegeta ran to her along with the other fighters. He picked her up and settled her in his arms. Bulma's eyelids fluttered and then closed.
