Chapter 427 : The Training Starts!
Gohan took Goten to train for the upcoming contest. It is Gohan's
first time training with his brother. Gohan first turned into super-saiya-jin.
On the ground, Gohan made a line. Then Gohan walked to 4~5 feet from the
line. "Goten. Do you see the line on the ground? Stand before that
line and throw the stone at me," Gohan said to Goten. It would be a good
test of reflex to dodge the stones thrown at such a short distance.
"Is it really ok?", Goten asked, thinking he may hurt his brother. "No problem"
Gohan said. Gohan thought such a simple attack could not give him any
difficulties. Goten picked up the stone and threw it at Gohan. Gohan
saw the stone coming to his face at an extraordinary speed and barely avoided
it. Gohan could not believe his brother's ability. Goten was ready to
throw another stone at Gohan, but Gohan asked Goten to stop. "Why don't
you just stand back a little bit," Gohan knew Goten was too quick for him.
"Ok," Goten replied. Goten repeatly threw tens of stones at Gohan and
Gohan avoided all of them. Gohan was ready for another practice when
Goten suddenly interrupted. "Brother, could I become like you?," Goten asked.
"You mean like me", Gohan pointed to his hair (the super-saiya jin form.
"Do you know what this is?" Gohan thought Goten was joking. "Yeah..
Don't you call that thing Super-Saiya-jin?" Goten replied. "Yes. But first
your heart must be full of fury ..." Gohan said. But before Gohan could
finish the line Goten had turned into Super-Saiya-jin form. "Incredible!
It took many practices for father and I...When did you make it to Super saiya-
jin?" Gohan asked in surprise. "I did it a long time ago. But mom said I
look like a teenage gangster so I did not transform again", Goten replied.
"I guess mom really doesn't like the look of super saiya-jin...." Gohan
said. "Brother, can we just fight?" Goten asked Gohan. "Do you know how
to fight?" Gohan asked. "Mom taught me a little bit whenever you were
studying." "Ok," Gohan and Goten started to fight. The fight drags on
for several minutes. Gohan could not land any attack on Goten. Gohan
then flew up the air and prepared to attack again. "Brother... that's
not fair. I don't know how to fly...," Goten said. "You could turn into
super saiya-jin easily but you don't know how to fly??" Gohan pondered.
"You were much stronger than I could imagine," Gohan said to Goten as he
landed. "Really? But Trunks is even stronger than I'm ..."
Suddenly, a thought came to Gohan. He was supposed to teach Biteru how
to fly. Coincidentally, Biteru was flying her helicopter just behind Gohan.
She was heading to Gohan's home. "Goten. Let's go see a special person"
Gohan brought Goten back to their home. Biteru was at the door talking to
Chichi. Then Gohan appeared from behind. "Why are you cutting school?"
Biteru asked. "I need to train for the turnament. Hey, do you want to learn
how to fly?" Then Chichi cut into the conversation " Are you guys going on
a date?" "No!" Biteru answered furiously. "Don't worry. Gohan don't do
sexy things, will you, Gohan?" "NO!!" Biteru was irritated. "Let's just
head off and learn how to fly." Gohan and Biteru left for training.
PS : In Chinese/Japanese, people refer to their simblings as brothers/
sisters, not by their first names. Thus Goten will say "Ni-chan"
to refer to Gohan. Goten won't call Gohan "Gohan". Just a little
cultural enrichment ...
