17. BEING A HERO

There was jubilation in Nootra and Cybertron when Son Goku defeated Broly in the Battle of Agnam. Son Goku emerged victorious thanks to the people, animals, vegetation, objects and elements of his world. Galactus interfered in the battle and prevented Nootra’s champion from exterminating Broly. He swallowed the Legendary Super Saiyan and vowed not to threaten Cybertron if Broly was allowed to live in him and satisfy his hunger for energy. Son Goku was overtaken but he couldn’t stop the cosmic entity from recruiting his new herald who was an inexhaustible energy reserve in himself. Galactus left with Broly and this marked the end of the many combats fought on Agnam. Nootra, Cybertron and the galaxy had overcome so heroes and citizens celebrated with great joy.

Villains and heroes having fought alongside, it was time for the allies to congratulate one another and settle other matters.
Optimus Prime: “That was a good safe Megatron; though on considering, you’re the one who started all this. Still, this battle will be a landmark in our civilization. Friends and foes fought side by side and triumphed.”
Megatron: “Optimus, I never thought I could resort to such a thing like the one that just happened but when you’re a robot, there’s possibility you’ll witness strange occurrences in this world.”
Optimus Prime: “What about your troops posted in the environs?”
Megatron: “I have called back the Decepticons from Cybertron, the secret bases and the city.”
Optimus Prime: “Excellent. Today, we’ve been allies and it worked pretty well. Why not forget our differences and work together?”
Megatron: “Don’t get too excited about this Prime. You’re correct when you talk of today. I did what I did only for my own interests and those of the Decepticons. I have ambitions, which I couldn’t allow that kid to tamper with. Be sure you’ll hear from us soon; very soon. Decepticons and allies, retreat!”

Optimus Prime: “Goodbye old buddy. Yet know that if Decepticons come against Nootra again, the Autobots will be there to stop you.”
The Decepticons Soundwave and Astrotrain, together with their allies, Magneto and Apocalypse, followed Megatron and took leave. When the villains were gone, the heroes were left alone on the surface of Agnam. Noah finally had the opportunity to approach Vegeta. Noah was fond of the prince of Saiyans and now that she was standing close to him, nothing could separate her from her hero. She was in high spirits and though aware of Vegeta’s unfriendliness, she ran and fell on him with a hug.
Noah: “Vegeta at last. How I longed to meet you!”

Noah’s temperament embarrassed Vegeta; her affectionate gesture took him completely unawares. It was unusual for anyone to display their affection to him in that manner, and so he rebuked her.
Vegeta: “How impudent! What do you think you’re doing? Get off me.”
Instead of depressing, Noah was quite pleased with Vegeta’s reaction. She was reassured for she expected no other response from the true Vegeta.

Noah: “I knew you would say something like that. This proves you’re my Vegeta and no impostor. You look aggressive on the outside but deep within you is the heart of the prince you are.”
Vegeta: “Who’s this kid Trunks? I think I forbade you from giving information about me to people.”
Trunks: “Dad, this is Noah the Earthling. She and her friends are so keen on us in Nootra. They knew each one of us even before arriving here.”

Vegeta: “I didn’t ask for those details but take her away from me.”
Noah: “This is awesome! It’s Vegeta as I know him.”
No matter how hard he tried, Vegeta couldn’t drive Noah away. During this time, Son Goten took Ryan and Zach to Son Goku who was seated on the ground of Agnam. Emotions were running high as it was the first time these two would talk face-to-face with their hero. Goten introduced them to his father and Zach and Ryan met Son Goku.

Zach: “We’re privileged among the people of Earth to meet you Son Goku. Many love you on our planet.”
Son Goku: “I’m flattered that people from another dimension know me.”
Ryan: “Noah, Alan, Zach and I are happy to be here and to see all of you superheroes. Many would give much for that.”
Goten: “And you’ve given so much Ryan, your faith.”

Son Goku: “Wow! Is it by faith you’re here? I’ve always wanted to meet people who transgress laws restricting them from realizing their full potentials. Child, will you teach me some of your tricks one of these days?”
Ryan: “I’m honoured the champion of the galaxy admires me, a child from Earth. But Son Goku, these are no tricks as you know. I simply believe the Agape and things happen to me and my friends.”


Son Goku: “Don’t say ‘simply’ because faith in the Agape is the most powerful virtue a man possesses. It’s true stories circulate all over the universe about me but if you look carefully, you’ll notice I’m like everybody. I’m just someone who uses the gift he received exhaustively. And you know what child; I love doing what I’m doing, and I’m sure there are people like me on Earth. You and we aren’t different. Everyone just has to identify the area they thrive best and use its produce to save their people. The gift you’ve received Ryan is this faith, which brought you and your friends to this dimension. Only few people have that.”

Goku’s companions had walked to him and they followed what he and the Earthlings were saying. Some didn’t hesitate to comment.
Vegeta: “These Earthlings spend their time looking for people far away. Haven’t they got heroes and villains like we’ve got here in Nootra?”

Son Goku: “Vegeta, it’s a good thing to meet people from around the world. Me, I’d love to meet every single person in the universe. I’ve met billions already yet this is only the first time I meet people from Earth. There are trillions of trillions of people in the world and I want to meet all of them. We can learn a lot from people with different backgrounds. It’ll increase our knowledge and we’ll be able to live our best in the world.”

Vegeta: “There’s nothing any inferior people can teach me. Saiyans are the strongest race that exists. It’s useless meeting other people if they can’t make you stronger.”

Noah: “You’re my favourite among Nootra’s superheroes Vegeta.”
Son Goku: “Did somebody hear the Earthlings call us superheroes or is it just me who’s moved by it? That’s cool, eh? I’ve never come across people outside of this galaxy who appreciate us to the point of calling us like our citizens do - superheroes. It’s true Earth is fond of us.”
