Goku sighed as he stared out the window, gazing at the snow on the ground. Christmas was tomorrow, and he was actually pretty happy. Chichi was sending Goten over for Christmas this year. He really missed the little guy. Bulma was also sending Trunks over, which Goku didn’t mention to his son because he wanted it to be a surprise. He suddenly heard a knock on the door along with someone yelling daddy. Smiling brightly, Goku rushed to the door, opened it quickly and was attacked by his son. He fell back laughing along with Goten and hugged him tightly.
“Hey buddy! It’s awesome to see you!” Goku exclaimed, ruffling his son’s hair.
“It’s great to see you too, dad! Where’s Vegeta?” Goten asked as he looked around the house.
“He just ran to pick something up. It’s a surprise! Let’s get you settled in the spare room and then play some games while we wait for him. How does that sound?” Goku smiled and stood up, setting Goten back on the ground.
“Yeah! Let’s do it!” Goten agreed as he grabbed his bag and rushed up the stairs. Goku followed him quickly. He hadn’t seen Goten this excited in a long time. He helped Goten put his stuff away and once they were done, they rushed down the stairs and plopped onto the couch. Goku turned on the gaming system and pulled two controllers out, handing one to Goten. He sat down beside his son and they began an intense game against each other. They were so wrapped up in their game that they didn’t even hear Vegeta come in with Trunks. Goku and his son were too busy laughing and lightly bumping each other. Goku only stopped when he felt a strong hand on his shoulder. He instantly tensed up, nearly dropping the controller. He didn’t relax again until he heard that familiar laugh.
“Kaka, I’m sorry. I wasn’t trying to scare you but I’m back.” Vegeta glanced over at Goten, who was staring at the two of them with big, curious eyes. “Quit staring. Someone’s here to see you as well.” Before Goten could even ask, he heard a voice that he knew all too well.
“Goten!” It shouted.
“Oh my god! Trunks!” The small boy jumped off the couch and ran over to a boy a little taller than him, with tan skin, blue eyes and lavender colored hair. He tackled the other boy to the ground and the two of them laughed.
“Hey Goten! It’s been awhile huh?” Trunks smiled and hugged Goten tightly.
“Way too long, Trunks!” Goten agreed as he hugged back. Goku smiled as he watched the two boys, almost forgetting that Vegeta’s hand was on his shoulder, until it was squeezed. Goku glanced at Vegeta and smiled a little bit, getting a smile in return.
“Why don’t you let the boys play, Kaka. You and I need some alone time.” Vegeta smiled slightly and tugged on Goku.
“Alright Geta.” Goku agreed as he gave Goten and Trunks the couch. He let Vegeta take him upstairs and followed him into the bedroom, shutting the door behind them. Goku sat down on the bed and glanced up at his mate. He saw Vegeta admiring him slightly, which caused him to blush a bit.
“I mostly wanted to talk to you, Kaka.” Vegeta said as he sat down beside Goku.
“About what, Geta? Am I in trouble?” Goku asked, feeling slightly scared.
“No, no not at all. I just want to know if you’ve been feeling alright. And if anything has been bothering you.” Vegeta replied, wrapping his tail around Goku’s waist.
“I’m fine, Geta. Ever since you and I bonded I’ve been feeling better than ever. Honest.” Goku smiled softly and hugged his mate.
“I only ask this because I’ve been getting some strange vibes from you. Like something’s off, but I can’t exactly put my finger on it.” Vegeta sounded a bit worried, but Goku just hugged him tighter.
“You have nothing to worry about. There is something I want to tell you, but unfortunately it’s your Christmas present and I can’t give it to you until tomorrow. Since tomorrow is Christmas after all.” Goku grinned slightly. He wasn’t really sure if Vegeta was going to like this present or not, but there was nothing he could do.
“But Kaka…If something is bothering you then you need to tell me.” Vegeta only began to sound even more worried.
“I told you. It’s nothing bad, Geta. Okay?” Goku smiled and kissed his mate lightly on the lips.
“Alright…I will trust you…but keep this in mind. I will be watching you ALL day today. You got that?” Goku could only nod before Vegeta left to go make dinner. Goku flopped on his back and threw his hands behind his head. He was really starting to worry about how Vegeta was going to handle what he was going to tell him tomorrow, but he decided that he couldn’t worry about it at the moment. Worrying was one of the last things that he needed to do right now.
After about an hour, Goku could smell that dinner was ready. He quickly changed into something comfortable and bolted down the stairs. When he reached the kitchen, he found the two boys already scarfing down food like no tomorrow. Goku quickly sat down in his chair by Vegeta, who was also already scarfing down food, and quickly joined them. Vegeta was a pretty good cook and he always managed to make enough food. That’s one of the things Goku really loved about him. His cooking even out ranked Chichi’s cooking by a long shot. Once they were done eating, the boys slowly walked up the stairs. With full stomachs, they were ready to get a good night’s sleep, especially since tomorrow was Christmas. Goku stayed downstairs and helped Vegeta with cleaning up the kitchen. They were all such messy eaters, but they are Saiyans. After the kitchen was cleaned up, Goku wrapped his tail around the smaller Saiyan’s waist and walked up the stairs. They were both exhausted, mostly from all the food. They just barely made it to the bed before collapsing, Goku landing on top of Vegeta. They shared a quick kiss before snuggling together and passing out in each other’s arms.
The next morning they were woken up bright and early by two excited children. Goten and Trunks rushed into the bedroom, yelling at the top of their lungs. Goku sat up quickly, knowing the boys would be on the bed in less than two seconds and he wanted to avoid getting jumped on. Vegeta was up next. He sat up just as Trunks went to jump on him, catching the boy in midair.
“You two better settle down or else you aren’t getting your presents.” Vegeta growled, instantly getting the two boys to shut up. “Now go downstairs. We’ll be down in just a minute.” Goku watched as the two boys rushed out of the room before Vegeta turned toward him.
“Merry Christmas, Geta!” Goku smiled, hugging his mate tightly.
“Yeah, Merry Christmas, Kaka.” Vegeta returned Goku’s hug before looking up into his eyes. “So when are you going to tell me?”
“Once we get through with the boys and their presents.” Goku replied, smiling as he watched Vegeta glare a bit.
“Oh fine. Let’s get downstairs then before they tear into those presents without us.” Vegeta replied. Goku jumped up and grabbed the smaller Saiyan by the wrist, pulling him down the stairs where the boys were waiting. They had already sorted through their presents and they each had an equal pile beside them. Goku sat down with Vegeta on the couch and nodded towards the two boys. They both exclaimed happily before ripping into their presents. It didn’t take them long to get through all of their presents and instantly start playing with all the toys they got.
“Hey you two. Why don’t you go upstairs and play for a little bit. I’ve got to talk to Vegeta alone.” Goku smiled innocently. Goten and Trunks didn’t even hesitate before gathering up their toys and rushing up the stairs. Once Goku heard the door close, he turned toward Vegeta, who had a big box on his lap.
“Kaka, before you tell me. I have a surprise for you.” He smiled, pushing the box toward Goku.
“Oh, Geta! You didn’t have too!” Goku smiled and stared down at the box. Right before he opened it, he heard a quiet bark. He stiffened up and glanced at Vegeta, his eyes wide. Vegeta just waited patiently. Without any more hesitation, Goku threw the lid off of the box and out popped a familiar looking face. Goku squealed loudly when he saw the little pup. It was the exact same one he was playing with the day he collapsed in town and had to be rushed home. He couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw her. “Geta! How on earth did you know I wanted her?” Goku asked, excitedly.
“Remember the bond Kaka? I can see what you’re thinking. Every single day after we left that pet shop, you were thinking of this little husky pup. So I went back to get her one day and I have been keeping her at Bulma’s place. You should read what’s on her bow.” Vegeta smiled. Goku tilted his head and glanced down at the bow, not even noticing that Vegeta was moving toward the floor. Goku saw a small card on the dog’s bow and slowly began to read it: Kakarot, I want you to know how much I love you and I’ve wanted to ask this ever since the day I brought you back home…I wanted to know if- Goku wasn’t even able to finish reading it before he felt one of his hands being grabbed. He quickly looked down at Vegeta, who was on one knee, holding a small black box in his other hand. “Kaka, I wanted to know if you would marry me.” Vegeta had said what Goku didn’t get to finish reading on the card. Instantly his eyes filled with tears he threw his free arm around Vegeta, keeping the puppy in the other arm.
“Oh my god! Vegeta, of course I will! Nothing would make me happier!” He cried as he felt Vegeta’s arms wrap around him.
“That makes me really happy Kaka…” Vegeta whispered softly.
“Oh!” Goku sniffled before pulling back to look at Vegeta. “I almost forgot. My surprise for you…It isn’t exactly a physical surprise that you can hold right now…but you’ll be able too very soon…” He watched as Vegeta’s eyes grew wide. Before Vegeta could even ask, Goku shushed him and continued to speak. “I only hope that you’ll still want me…especially after you proposed to me…but…Geta…I’m pregnant…with your…I mean our baby.” He finished and just looked at Vegeta, who had nothing but shock all over his face. This made Goku begin to worry about what was going to happen next.
