Vegeta had fallen asleep at some point during the night. He was woken by the sound of the front door slamming shut. He immediately got out of bed and ran down the stairs.
When he reached the base of the stairs he stopped. Then he slowly walked forward to look the other Saiyan directly in the eye. "Well Kakarott. Where is my mate?"
"At my house." The younger man replied. "I came to get some of her stuff. Along with the baby's things."
Vegeta's eyes widened. "What!" He couldn't believe what he was hearing.
"I heard you. Why is she there and not here?" Vegeta snapped.
"We thought she might be safer with us. For the baby's sake." Goku replied.
"Safer? What are you trying to say? You think that I will hurt her? I could never-"
"But you did hurt her Vegeta." He frowned.
"Bring her here. This is where she belongs. With me. Her mate." Vegeta had clenched his fists in anger.
"No Vegeta not yet. It's not safe for Jackie. Or Bulma. She needs time to heal." Goku said calmly.
"She can heal here. You will not take her away from me. She is mine." Vegeta screamed.
"Please Vegeta just let me get her things. She will be back home when she is ready." With that Goku made his way upstairs and began to collect Bulma's belongings.
Before Goku walked out of the house he turned to Vegeta and said slowly. "You should have promised." Then he was gone.
Vegeta sat down at the kitchen table and stared off into space. "I should have promised." He said to himself.
Vegeta stood up and walked out of the back door and toward the GR.
Vegeta hesitated when he reached the door to the GR. He slowly reached his hand up and pushed the button to open the door. With a hiss the door slid open and he stepped in.
It was dark. Vegeta didn't turn on the lights. He kept walking until he reached the spot where Bulma had lain, bleeding, his child in her belly. What had he done wrong? His whole life he had been persecuted for everything.
'Come back to me woman. I need you.' He thought through their bond.
'Not yet. Not now.' He heard Bulma's voice say in his head. Startled he gasped.
'Woman?' There was no answer. 'Woman?' He tried again, this time louder. She had shut him out.
For the second time in his life Prince Vegeta cried.
