Warrior's Daughter Chapter 15
"There!" Chiyo called.
It was half an hour since their group split up. Gohan had taken Bulma and Yajirobe to Mt Paozu to see Goku. Vegeta had flown off with Trunks following him. Tenshinhan, Chiyo, Piccolo and Kuririn had all left for North City, where Dr Gero's lab was apparently hidden.
Chiyo was determined to participate in the fight against the Androids, so she was on her best behavior. She kept up with the adults and didn't speak unless spoken to. And so far, nobody had told her to go home.
North City was just up ahead. It was a sprawling city, surrounded by mountains and patches of forest, all bare and rocky like the area they'd fought Twenty in.
"Which one of these mountains looks like the best place to put a lab?" Kuririn asked, half-jokingly.
"Dr. Gero's lab is in a cave in the mountains around here, right?" Tenshinhan asked. "But how do we find it? It's all mountains here."
"We'll split up and search," Piccolo said impatiently. "Give a signal when you find it."
"What kind of

"What did he say?" he said. "Did he say they're not…?"
"Then who -"
"Bullshit!" Vegeta snarled. "If that's not the right Android, then what the hell is it? Well?"
Kuririn turned to him. "Maybe it's no big deal…history turned out differently anyway, right? So maybe the Androids are just changed from what he knows…"
Tenshinhan sighed. "I hope so."
A shadow fell over the area. Chiyo glanced up and saw a red aircar blocking out the sun above, coming in to land. She recognized it as Bulma's aircar, but she sensed three people's chi, not two.
"It's Bulma and Yajirobe," she called, pointing.
"Watch out!" Trunks yelled at the vehicle. "Don't come any closer!"
Chiyo opened her mouth to ask if they would hear him, but a roar of laughter from Twenty interrupted her.
"I spoke the truth when I said you have no chance!" he shouted triumphantly. "Numbers Seventeen and Eighteen will come for you soon!"
With that he fired a chi blast at the aircar. Chiyo leapt forwards but someone else

"This is terrible," Kuririn muttered.
Goku crouched on his knees, hand clamped tightly over his chest, head bent. He gasped for breath, so loudly even Chiyo could hear him from several feet away.
He pitched forwards and only just managed to stop himself from falling.
"Dad!" Gohan cried, and made to move forward.
"St-stay!" Goku said, lifting his head with effort. "Both of you!"
"Don't do it," Kuririn warned. "Your dad is still in charge and we can't intervene until he says so."
Gohan and Chiyo exchanged a glance, then stared at Goku. Chiyo was the first to look away. A painful lump rose in her throat; she swallowed hard and remembered what her father had told her before they left for the island.
"Are you nervous?" Goku asked as he watched her stretch in the dawn light.
Chiyo shook her head, bending to touch her toes.
"A little. Maybe." She held up her thumb and forefinger. "This much."
"Come here," Goku said, and she ran towards him, laughing when he tossed her into the air. "Now

Chiyo watched him closely as he lunged for the fat Android, whom she now knew was called Nineteen - he struck Nineteen with a blow she felt as a tremour through the ground, but she couldn't see him. He was so fast she had to scramble to catch up with them, straining her senses to feel rather than to look. It was one of the first lessons Goku had taught her.
"That's it, Son," Tenshinhan muttered. He and Piccolo watched the battle avidly, eyes darting from left to right as the two men - one real, one artificial - battled it out in the sky above, and Chiyo followed their gaze, squinting as they came into focus.
It was silly to believe that Papa had ever gone all out when they were in training, but even so...she'd never seen anything so pow

"You are a foolish child."
Chiyo bristled at the insult, but didn't answer him. Instead she began to increase her chi, slowly to conserve energy, while forcing herself to take another step closer. The older Android stared at her, moustache curled up in a smirk, and behind her Yamcha was losing blood fast.
The Android stepped forward. She stepped back. Seconds passed, and in those moments Chiyo sensed chi coming towards her. She breathed a sigh of relief. Someone landed behind her, their shoes barely made a sound. Then another and another.
One chi was familiar. Two weren't. And the other was Papa; she knew his chi almost as well as she knew her own.
In that moment Chiyo sprang forward, and the Android blocked her blow with his forearm. She parried the punch that followed, her mind racing ahead to form a plan, searching for weak points.
She bent backwards and the Android's fist punched air, barely missing her. She pulled herself upright and drew her fist back, ready to return the blow -
