Gohan watched as his father was beaten down in front of him, Beerus was a nightmare, for so many years they thought they were the strongest beings in the universe, unfortunately, Supreme kai held out on them because he thought the god would stay asleep for another one hundred years before awaking from his slumber, Goku the strongest being in the cosmos, or so they thought, was at full power Super Saiyan 3 trying to even faze Beerus.
Beerus smirked, easily sliding through Goku's defense giving him a flick to the forehead with close to no effort.
A shock wave sounded out as he was blasted out of the sky and into the ground, he quickly composed himself and charged his ki again before using instant transmission to zip behind Beerus, the destroyer god glanced behind him with a somewhat amused expression.
"Oh?" The cat deity said.
"You know the technique of those purple beings in sector 3716, you surprise me Son Goku, but not enough to spare your world." Said Beerus as he caught Goku's fist and squeezed a little hard immediately a snapping sound was heard.
"However I do commend you, you very well may be the strongest mortal in the universe, possibly even the other world, you managed to force me to use one percent of my power, which is a feat not many mortals can do if you give up your life I might spare your world." Said Beerus, he could see the surprised look on the strongest Saiyans face.
Sensing disbelief the cat god continued. "I am not lying, you have a family yes? Do the smart thing or you know what happens." Beerus threatened as he stared down at Goku as an immovable object.
With nothing but the wind blowing Beerus could hear the ants yell in protest, he could see Goku's mini clone yelling at the top of his lungs with tears in his eyes.
He clenched his fist in frustration, he fought the destroyer because he was looking for some Saiyan God, a Super Saiyan God? What a joke, this cat just wanted to kill them, he doubted they would be spared.
Looking at his eldest Goku's jaw clenched, his son was graduating from West City College, from what he heard from Bulma that was the hardest and the best educational center in the world…and his son was at the top, wouldn't that make Gohan the smartest graduate in the world.
He had a bad feeling in his gut which was terrifying because he had never had one before.
Was everything they fought to protect about to become space dust? Goku looked at Beerus as he clenched his fist and powered down, falling to his knees if Beerus was being serious then at least they will live.
Silence ensued after the act, Gohan looked at the scene with a heavy heart, if he jumped in he wouldn't be able to make a difference but he felt he had to try.
A single glance from his father stole all of his strength as he dropped to his knees Videl looked at Gohan surprised as she hugged him from the side. "It'll be okay…" She said, although her hands were shaking somewhat.
'Even Gohan's father can't beat him…' She had heard all of the stories from Gohan, the legendary Son Goku he was strong enough to defeat a tyrant that could destroy planets with a flick of his finger, trained Gohan to the point where he could defeat Cell, and even defeated Majin Buu.
Vegeta growled and charged forward. "God or not you will leave or die!" Said Vegeta with fury in his voice as he powered up and punched as hard as he could focusing all his energy into a single point.
Beerus grinned as Vegeta approached. "You don't even have the strength to wash your own back where do you get off trying to hurt me!" Challenged Beerus as a heavy thundershock reverberated damaging the part of the ship Beerus was floating above the ocean behind Beerus split ten miles wide and the clouds parted before dispersing.
Everyone held on as a bright light shone from the release of energy in a single point, when everything had calmed down the boat was rocking slightly and Vegeta was panting heavily as he dropped out of Super Saiyan. 'Cocky bastard he definitely felt that one!' Thought Vegeta.
Hercule looked around in shock at the sight as Videl mirrored his reaction. "Incredible…"
"Not bad." A cold feeling sunk in as the voice spoke. "I'd say you might be able to wake me up with that punch, I was wrong Son Goku, unless you can punch like that, I'd say Vegeta is stronger." Said Beerus the expression on Vegeta's face was priceless.
"Go sit down before I decide you don't need to live anymore." Said Beerus as he flicked his finger at Vegeta and air pressure unlike anything he ever felt before hit him in the chest and launched him onto the ship.
"If you seriously cannot find this Super Saiyan God then I will leave and make this planet a memory." Said Beerus.
"No, we never knew before and we won't know now…" Said Goku.
A deep purple hue covered them all as a sphere appeared in the sky, Gohan stared at the divine power powerless. 'Is this just how it ends for us? After everything, we overcame…' He thought as he glared at the sky.
"Videl…" Gohan gained her attention as she turned and looked at him. "I'm sorry…" He said as she bite her lower lip.
"You can't give up…" She said weakly as she tightened her grip on him. "Can't you wish for him to be gone?" Asked Videl as Gohan gave her a sad smile.
"It doesn't work like that, Shenron can't just wis-" Gohan stopped mid-sentence. "There is a way!" Said Gohan as she nodded.
"Wait!" Exclaimed Gohan as he floated up and spoke looking at the Z-Fighters. "Guys! We could ask the dragon if he knows anything about the Super Saiyan God." Said Gohan as Goku's expression changed, they were all out of options.
"Of course! Why didn't I think of that!" Said Goku as he looked at Beerus hoping against all that Beerus will give them a chance before connecting the palm of his hands and bowing. "Please mister Lord Beerus, give us time and we might be able to deliver the Super Saiyan God!" Said Goku as Beerus let his ki dissolve and return to his body with an interested look.
"You have a way to deliver?" He asked.
"Maybe but we need time, at least thirty minutes…" Said Goku.
"Very well you have thirty minutes." Said Beerus as he looked at Bulma. "You, human, bring me food!" Said Beerus as Bulma slowly nodded and looked to one of the waiters.
"Hurry up! Get the best food we have available!" Said Bulma as the waiter nodded and hurried away.
Bulma quickly ran and got the dragon balls to quickly summon Shenron.
"Do you think this is going to work?" Krillin said out loud although no one answered, he glanced up at his wife and then down to his daughter who looked scared.
"It has to…" 18 answered.
The sky darkened as a large green dragon materialized and golden thunder rocked the sky. "I am the eternal dragon Shenron. You have awoken me from my slumber! Speak your wish so I may return to my slumber!" Shenron's voice shook the sky.
"I can never get used to this…" Videl muttered as she stared at the mythical creature.
"YOU ARE TRYING MY PATIENCE! STATE YOUR WISH SO THAT I MAY LEAVE!" Shenron said frustrated at the silence.
"We would like to know about the existence of the Super Saiyan God," Beerus said as Shenron looked at him.
"L-lord Beerus! What a surprise…" Shenron almost squeaked out.
"Shenron are you okay?" Goku asked he had never seen the eternal dragon react in such a way before.
"You wish to know of the Super Saiyan God?" Shenron asked to make sure completely ignoring Goku.
"Indeed and make it fast, I do not like to be left waiting," Beerus said as he glared at Shenron.
"Of course at once Lord Beerus," Shenron answered and immediately explained how to create a Saiyan God.
"Is there anything else you would like to know about your greatness?" Shenron asked.
"That is all, you may leave," Beerus answered as he turned and looked at the gang.
"You now know how to make one." Said Beerus as Whis spoke. '
"Lord Beerus could I have a moment of your time something has come up that requires your attention," Whis said.
Beerus paused and thought the premonition he had of the Super Saiyan God was terrifying, he defeated Beerus and killed him and took his title, something Beerus would never allow. "Do not do the ritual." Said Beerus as they all nodded and Shenron disappeared.
Once Beerus was high in the sky talking to his attendant Gohan quickly spoke. "We should do this now! I think he has no intention of letting this Super Saiyan god actually be born, if you think about it rationally why would a god want a challenge?" Said Gohan as Vegeta nodded.
"The brat is correct, Beerus is up to something and I feel we won't be alive much longer if we wait for him." Said Vegeta. "As much as it pains me to say this, I can't do this ritual, we only have one shot and I used all my energy on Beerus." Said Vegeta as Goku nodded as everyone looked around, all the Saiyans immediately looked at Gohan who felt like shrinking at all the stares.
"Me!?" Asked Gohan as everyone nodded. "You're the only Saiyan that can match Vegeta and I in a fair fight so it's only natural…besides Vegeta and I are exhausted, a Super Saiyan God that is at a handicap against Beerus might not make it and we can't take that risk, our power levels are too low to even faze Beerus so he won't notice if we power up to the max." Said Goku as he transformed and tried to keep his transformation stable even with the lack of energy, Vegeta took a couple of seconds to activate the form and soon Trunks and Goten followed suit, and Beerus never noticed.
"I never thought I would be so weak to someone that they wouldn't even notice when I transform." Said Goku as Vegeta grunted in irritation he didn't think Beerus wouldn't notice but he was relieved the god hadn't noticed, for a couple of seconds nothing happened until Gohan felt something bubble within him, he could feel his body start to change as a blue light envelope him.
Beerus was so in thought that he hadn't noticed until he felt a divine power surge to absurd levels, He saw Goku's son start to glow a look of dread passed over his face when he realized Beerus had spotted them performing the ritual.
"YOU LOWLY MORTALS DARE TO DISOBEY A GOD!" Yelled Beerus as his aura burst to life charging towards the Saiyans, Goku was the first to respond.
"You can do this Gohan! Defeat Beerus when you're ready…" Said Goku as he charged to max and charged towards Beerus who just punched a hole through his chest and threw his body towards Vegeta who dodged the flying corpse only to have his head slowly fall off his shoulders.
"Enough games! Your lives end today!"
Trunks and Goten fused and charged Beerus at full power. "You wish you purple asshole!" Gotenks yelled.
Crack! A sickening crunch sounded out as Gotenks's head span in a circle as Beerus slapped him across the face.
"NOO! GOTEN, FATHER, TRUNKS, VEGETA!" Yelled Gohan as tears streamed down his face as Beerus charged towards him but the rest of the Z-Fighters got in his way to buy time.
Chi-Chi and Bulma were crying but furious, Bulma threw a pan and Chi-Chi charged forward with kaioken activated, she didn't get close as Beerus destroyed her, she slowly vanished in purple sparkles along with Bulma.
Gohan in tears felt the transformation start to climax, he watched his mother disappear as she looked at her eldest son. "Gohan…you can do this…" Her last words echoed. He clenched his fist as he yelled, no he roared, the cruise ship beneath him breaking under the pressure of the power.
"Gohan!" Videl yelled as she was jumped away and took flight catching her father in the progress.
The light around Gohan intensified and the sky turned golden. Beerus looked on covering his eyes from the light as he felt the power spike to high levels. "BEERUS!" Yelled Gohan as the blue light dimmed and his hair had turned bright red and his aura resembled fire and his gi a darker red and black, Beerus felt the heat of the aura and for the first time, he took a step back accidentally.
Beerus growled and charged at Gohan and attacked, Gohan's eyes widened as Beerus seemingly appeared in front of him, he quickly gathered his thoughts and blocked the attack and the force of the attack forced him into the sky and through the moon, and further beyond.
