Bulma walked until she was right in front of him. Her face was inches from his and he could feel his breath on her face. "Well maybe you could help me," she said to him pushing her body against his.
"And how would I go about doing that?" Vegeta asked.
"By doing this," She leaned in to kiss him but she was stopped.
Vegeta held out his arm and pushed Bulma away from him. He felt the hairs on the back of his neck stand up just from touching her. It was like a shock of electricity went through him. It seemed that Bulma felt it to because she jumped back suddenly. Her shock was quickly replaced with anger. She put a pout on her face and crossed her arms.
"What's the matter Vegeta, can't handle a little heat?" Bulma asked tilting her head to the side.
"What heat?" Vegeta asked with a smirk on his face. So the woman thought she could seduce him. Well, he wasn't going to make it easy on her. Bulma saw that for she came closer until they were nose to nose. Bulma looked him right in the eyes. Then she did something that Vegeta hadn't expected, she reached down and grabbed him through his shorts. Vegeta jumped back against the wall surprised.
Bulma giggled and put her hands up to her mouth to as if to suppress the giggle with them. It didn't work for she burst out laughing.
"What's so funny Woman?" Vegeta asked her.
"You," Bulma said. She continued when Vegeta got a puzzled look on his face. "You talk a hard game Vegeta but when it comes right down to it you can't resist me. Sooner or later you are going to cave in. We need each other. Even with the bond broken we still feel for each other. I can see it in your eyes," she said walking to him again until they were just a few inches from each other.
"I don't know what you think you see when you look at me but it sure as hell isn't lust," Vegeta said fighting to control his expression and his erection. He wouldn't show her how he felt. He was also fighting anger. He would not soon forget her closed his eyes. He shook his head mentally to get rid of the visions of his woman with another man.
"You still love me Vegeta," he heard Bulma say.
"I never did love you," Vegeta said to her.
"What did you say?" Bulma asked him confused.
"You said that I still love you and I don't," Vegeta explained opening his eyes and looking at her like she was stupid.
"I didn't say that out loud," Bulma said quietly.
"Yes you did, I heard you," Vegeta said.
"I said it in my head," she said. "So how did you hear me? If we broke the bond then we shouldn't be able to hear each other. What does that mean," Bulma asked
Sweat beaded on Vegeta's forehead. Bulma wasn't stupid, she knew something was up and she would figure out the bond was broken soon enough. What was he going to do now? Well first of all he had to close off his mind to her so that she couldn't hear his thoughts. He had to keep the unbroken bond a secret somehow.
At that moment Jackie began to cry. The two stood still staring at each other. Then Bulma took a step back. "I'll be right back and then you are going to tell me what's going on." She walked down the hall and disappeared into the nursery.
This gave Vegeta time to think. He thought hard and formed a little lie in his head. He would tell her that it would take time for some parts of the bond to go away. That seemed like a reasonable and likely excuse. It would keep her at bay for a while until he could think of a way to break this accursed bond.
Bulma had quieted Jackie down and made her way back to Vegeta. She stood in front of him with her hands on her hips. "Now explain to me why you can hear my thoughts," she demanded.
Vegeta took a deep breath and looked her right in the eyes. He had mastered lying while serving under Freeza. "It takes a while for certain aspects of the bond to fully disappear," he explained. "So for a short period of time we will still feel what the other feels and hear what the other is thinking. Hopefully it will go away soon," the last part was mostly true. He wanted to break this bond he just didn't know how.
"Well how come I can't hear your thoughts?" Bulma asked curious.
"Because I have my mind shut off to you," he told her.
"How do you do that? I mean I don't want you to hear my thoughts," Bulma said. She didn't want to accidentally ruin her plans if he heard her thinking them. She had to find a way to reform the bond. She couldn't lose him. Maybe if she had the ability to hide her thoughts whenever she wanted then she could let him hear some things but not others. Suddenly she became aware of the fact that he could be listening to her thinking at that very moment. She tried to clear her mind and focus on what he was going to say.
Vegeta was too lost in his own thoughts looking for an answer to tune into hers. Besides the fact that only some things came through. Mostly feelings and things one mate wanted the other to know even if they couldn't say it. The bond was used mostly for emergencies. When the Saiyans purged planets the mates were sometimes separated. When one of the mates was hurt the other would feel it and would go to them. All Saiyans but the lowest class had bonds. The lowest class was not worthy of such a strong and useful communication system like a bond. Some of them were forbidden to even mate. If a bond was formed between two of the lower class than one was sentenced to death and if the bond was strong the other would die too from the painful loss.
Unfortunately for Bulma and Vegeta the bond was extremely strong and apparently damn near unbreakable. But Vegeta was bound and determined to exterminate this nuisance. Vegeta was brought out of his trance by a blow to the head.
Bulma slapped Vegeta upside the head impatiently. "Well?" she said
Vegeta's eyes narrowed and he turned red. "You aren't mentally capable to put up a wall. The human race wasn't built for this type of telepathy," he told her.
"What do you mean I'm not mentally capable?" Bulma asked. "I'm a freaking genius! I can do anything just tell me what to do!"
"I'm telling you woman that it's impossible. You are not a Saiyan," he was beginning to get agitated. They were so much alike in their feelings of superiority. They were the perfect match but he wasn't going to recognize it. He had to focus on the bad parts. Maybe that would help break the bond.
He began to think of the bad parts of the relationship. 1.) She's always nagging him about training. 2.) She's always running off with her stupid ex. 3.) She's best friends with his enemy. 4.) She's weak. 5.) She's annoying. Vegeta smirked at the last part. I think annoying was a word that most people who knew Bulma would use to describe her.
"Vegeta what are you smirking at? I mean what about this is funny?" Bulma was so confused. Vegeta was acting really weird. Something was up and she was going to find out. For some reason she had a feeling that he was lying about something but she couldn't figure it out. Finally, when she didn't get an answer from Vegeta, she decided to take the discussion back to what it was originally about.
She sauntered to him and pressed her self up against him. This startled Vegeta because he was still deep in thought. Vegeta jumped back and collided with the wall. Bulma started laughing. "Oh come on Vegeta you know you miss this," Bulma said pressing him against the wall with her body. Vegeta's eyes were as wide as saucers by this time.
Suddenly Bulma leaned in and kissed him. She wrapped her arms around him. Vegeta didn't know what to do. His eyes were wide open and hers were closed. Vegeta felt this warm feeling go through him. And even though he thought that this was wrong it felt so wrong. For some reason Vegeta started to respond. He closed his eyes and slowly wrapped his arms around Bulma giving in. Bulma smirked into his mouth. She had him right where she wanted him.
Bulma pulled away suddenly and smiled. Vegeta was confused. "You know what Vegeta I don't think I'm in the mood anymore," she told him and she turned and began to walk away.
"What?" Vegeta said furiously. What game did she think she was playing? "You can't just leave Woman you start something you finish it," he said clenching his fists.
Bulma started laughing. "Oh Vegeta I don't think we should do this. What with the broken bond and all," she said smirking.
Vegeta was at a loss. He wanted her so badly but he couldn't tell her the bond was not broken. He had to focus on not wanting her so that he wouldn't hurt her. So he built up all his courage and walked up to her. "You're right. I think this is goodnight," with that he pecked her on the cheek and walked down the stairs.
