The Future of Trunks-VOL.I-III [PDF Read File]
LAST UPDATE 6/26/16 - From time to time I modify the literature and update the file.

YOU MUST HAVE ADOBE ACROBAT/READER OR OTHER PDF READER PROGRAMS TO VIEW.


The Future of Trunks
written by Victoria Rider Galietta
based on the original story by Akira Toriyama


On the one year anniversary of the androids' demise, an even deadlier threat emerges from space having followed a visitor to Earth. The visitor is none other than a young saiyan named Celari who came in search of Prince Vegeta. Trunks finds himself back amongst the death and horror he grew up with and blames the unwelcomed saiyan for it. He makes the decision on his own to follow in his mother's footsteps to find Planet Namek and restore the dragonballs on earth. However, Celari may be his only key to finding the new planet, and has no idea just how astonishing her origin actually is. The shadow of Vegeta is unmistakable in Trunks as he's forced to choose between keeping his pride and protecting the human race from repeating a horrendous fate.


PLEASE DO NOT REVEAL SPOILERS IN ANY COMMENTS YOU MAY LEAVE!
I'd be happy to discuss details in private notes.

Trunks Saves Mei by Rider4Z
Trunks Saves Mei

    Exactly as intended, chaos ensued in the entire stadium. Many people ignored their own safety while trying to rescue those who became trapped in the rubble. Trunks ran to the collapsed tower through the stampede of fleeing survivors. While ready to completely collapse, the walls of the Birdseye Box still held the roof up. Trunks found a path into the dome, but the fire and smoke hindered his vision. He pulled a kerchief from his pocket and tied it around his face. He feared the worst when he came across the body of one of the guards he ran into outside the stadium. But he refused to leave before finding the kids. He called for them but couldn’t hear any replies. He dug and searched for what felt like forever. His eyes burned and he coughed from the massive amount of smoke.

    At last, he came across a young boy lying face down with his arm wrapped around the little ball of a girl. Trunks grabbed Mei and pulled her sweater over her face. She kept her entire body clenched. “Hold on to me tight, okay?” Trunks lifted Mei’s brother up over his shoulder and kicked his way through the burning rubble. “Mei, hold your breath!” He darted through the billowing smoke as fast as he could safely for the two children.

    Fresh air and sunlight struck his face. “Someone, help me!!” The tournament’s medic staff were already out and underway caring for the injured. Two ran to Trunks with a stretcher.

    He laid down Mei’s brother who was unconscious and covered in ash. He was immediately put in an ambulance. “Please, don’t let him die!” he panted. He turned in dread watching the thousands of people running, crying and screaming for their loved ones.

Trunks knelt down and Mei finally pulled her head out from her shirt. She looked up at her rescuer and pulled the kerchief off his face. “I knew it! I knew you were a super hero!” She said brightly covered in ash.

You're getting better, bro by Rider4Z
You're getting better, bro

    “Where the heck have you been? It’s been over five months since you left Namek.”

    “Has it really been that long?” Celari dropped her shoulders in surprise, and put her hand to her head. “My spacepod definitely needs a tune up. What about you, why are you here? Are you really here by yourself?”

    “No, not exactly,” Gill grinned and raised an eyebrow.

    “…” Celari hesitated for a brief moment, then quickly ducked as a small figure dashed over her from the side. Celari secured her footing and followed the imp with her eyes, chuckling to herself. “Nice to see you too, little brother.” A young boy in namekian clothing and a messy bowl top of black hair appeared before her with his fist aimed. His clothing was the same maroon as Gill’s, but instead of a robe he wore a white long sleeved shirt underneath his vest. His cummerbund was blue as well.

    Celari easily blocked him and dodged away. The boy followed Celari and continued his attack against her. She stopped running and took all the boy had to give her. Gill stood watching undisturbed from the brawl.

    Finally, Celari put an end to it when an open shot presented itself and knocked the boy away landing him on his stomach. Celari stood straight up and smiled proudly.

    “You’re getting better, Olivo. You’ll be able to land a hit on me any day now!”

Olivo growled to himself from the dirt as he dug his finger tips into it frustratingly.

Celari's had enough by Rider4Z
Celari's had enough

    Up above, the surface of the water was calm, and then suddenly broken by a headstrong saiyan with a gasp. Celari tugged Trunks to land and pulled him and herself up onto solid ground. She laid him on his side and shook him by his shoulder. “Hey!… Hey Boots, are you with me?”

    Hidden in the heel of her shoe was a knife with a jagged blade. She pulled it out and slipped it into his bindings ripping them apart. With his arms finally free his ribcage expanded and he awoke, choking and gasping for oxygen.

    Celari dropped her head in relief. “Hoh good, you’re not dead!” She said abruptly.

    Trunks rolled from his side onto his elbows and coughed violently trying to expel the water from his lungs. After a few seconds of panting, his breathing began to calm. “Gohan…” he barely whispered aloud. He cracked his eyes open and looked up to the figure next to him. His blurred vision slowly began to decipher shadows and shapes. Finally they took solid form and he corrected himself. “Celari…”

    “What the heck happened to you?” she insisted.

    Trunks pushed himself up onto his knees. “It…(cough) was a cyborg… It looked just like the one I killed on earth.”

    “A cyborg? …Terrific,” Celari looked back in concern for her little brother, then realized the pod was missing. “Hey, where’s the ship?”

    Trunks wiped his face. “In my pocket.”

    “Oh…” Celari scrunched her nose.  “I need you to come with me, Boots.”

    He looked up through his wet hair.

    “My brother is here, along with two other nameks.”

    “What?”

    “It’s a long story. I’ll explain along the way. Can you get up?” Celari reached to help Trunks up but he leaned away from her.

    “That’s alright, I can get up myself.”

    Out of respect Celari pulled back and rose to her feet. However, it only took one step for Trunks’ knees to buckle under him. Celari caught him under his arms and braced him up. He instinctively had grabbed onto her, making him blush from humiliation. She sighed and raised an eyebrow. “Yeah, you can get up. Right.”

    Trunks found his footing and tried to let go, but she held firm to the arm that found its way over her shoulder. “I said I’m fine,” he said stubbornly.

    Celari responded firmly, “Boots, please. I’m just trying to help you.”

    Trunks had held his tongue for so long, but he couldn’t any longer. “No, you’re not…”

    “What?…” She was confused by his comment and slightly offended.

    “…You’re just trying to make yourself feel better,” he accused her. He finally looked her square in the eye. “I’m not so easily trusting as my mother... and I’m not gonna just forget about what happened. So you can stop trying to get on my good side because it’s getting annoying.” With that he yanked his arm away.

    Celari’s patience finally broke. She growled and grabbed him by his shirt with both hands. “Now you listen to me!!” She shoved him against a rock wall gaining his full attention. “I just saved your life, Trunks! Do you get that? I promised Bulma that you’d come home in one piece…” her face turned threatening, “…but if anything happens to my little brother because you were slowing me down, then I can’t guarantee the condition of the piece you’ll be in when you get back! Are you getting me now?” she yelled tensing her grip on him. “I’m doing this for her, not you!”

    Trunks couldn’t say a word. He stared back wide-eyed, humbled by her outburst and shocked she used his real name. Celari stared him down, then realized she finally earned his attention. She took a breath to calm herself and let go of his shirt. Trunks stood still slightly intimidated. He made no resistance when she gently wrapped his arms over her shoulders and lifted him onto her back.

                She took a deep breath. “Listen, Boots. I get why you can’t stand me…” Celari spoke softly and trailed off. She ascended into the air. “I promise, once you get Earth’s dragonballs restored I’ll go back home...” Trunks raised his eyebrows. “…I won’t bother you anymore.” Celari tried to sound neutral about it, but Trunks felt guilty and remained silent in shame.

Celari in Control by Rider4Z
Celari in Control

Chapter IX: Repaid Karma

 

                In the air, some hundred yards away, Gill finally made his approach to the scene. His eyes fell upon a transformed Celari as he descended. He watched in amazement as she lay into Ion. Ion could barely put up a block to her relentless speed and strength. To add to the humiliation and pain she periodically halted her attack so Ion could get his bearings just to attempt a futile counter.

                “Insane… Celari…” Gill’s eyes then shifted to a figure lying in the dirt nearby. “Uh!” He descended hastily. “Trunks, are you alright?” He gently lifted him up. Trunks’ face was dangerously pale.

                Gill’s attention returned to Celari. Her display of power wasn’t anything like he’d ever witnessed. “She really did it, didn’t she…” he began. “Celari’s a super saiyan…!”

                Trunks opened his eyes and examined Celari already understanding Gill’s misconception. “No…” he finally spoke.

                “Huh?” Gill looked at him.

                “…She’s not …just a super saiyan.”

                Gill raised an eyebrow then looked back up. Electric sparks continued to expel from Celari’s body. Ion expelled an intense amount of effort to fight back, while Celari appeared to be putting none forth.

                “…Celari …is as strong as Gohan was when he fought Cell.”

                Gill raised an eyebrow not knowing who Trunks was talking about.

                “…How did she do it?” he continued, more so thinking out loud. “…How did she ascend in her first transformation?” He stared in admiration seeing a new light in her. “Celari… you’re amazing…”

Hello everyone,

Thanks for your patience and support. My copyright issue has been resolved so I will slowly start taking my pieces out of storage. This incident has inspired me to take a look at my account and I'm going to make some changes to organize things better. 

As of right now, the only piece I made available is the read file of THE FUTURE OF TRUNKS, but only the first volume. This is because I have been going through the entire story again trying to flesh out the characters more and add a bit more depth to the story. I've never had any training in writing so I'm learning as I go. And I realized some important things seem to be missing in the literature. I've been writing it from the viewpoint of describing something I'm watching onscreen. I'm trying to break that habit and describe more of the things you can't see but the things you feel. I suppose that's why people who read a lot always say the book is better than the movie.

I also plan on taking a lot of my older illustrations and redoing them, excited for that! :)

I will let you know when more volumes are added~ ;) I hope everyone likes the little changes/additions I'm making. I know I do! I will also slowly start taking my pictures out of storage, there's just a lot and I want to take my time to organize things.
