A barely lit room. Cigar smoke fills the room as two saiyans recline in chairs, facing a slightly nervous human with a notepad. A single, dim lightbulb hangs overhead, casting shadows from every rise and fall in the features of the two warriors. One dwarfs the other, but both have an imposing aura to them.
The larger saiyan is the first to stub out his cigar. "You want to know the story?" The human nods, wishing he hadn't been stupid enough to take the dare.
"The big green dude, Guerin, was smart enough to trick Nam. Not a hard feat by any means. I liked him, personally, though ol' Hen was gonna kill him if Guerin didn't first.
"Anyway. I can't be certain how it all played out in that time chamber. All we know is, one moment the door was there, and the next it was gone. I would wager that Nam, realising he was losing, decided to destroy it and trap the two in that realm together.
"Personally... I hope Guerin killed Nam early, so that the rest of his life would be spent alone in there."
The larger saiyan pauses. The leaner one says nothing, simply reclining with a smile on his face, cigar still burning between his lips.
"As for cluckin' Hen here, he had his hands full. A man known as Yakedo arrived on Earth and almost got the better of him, but thanks to the combined efforts of members of an organisation known as the Protectorate, he was cast back from the place he escaped from."
The bigger saiyan smiles sadly. "That might have been a misunderstanding. Oh well."
The reporter gulps. "Wasn't there another guy?"
The smaller saiyan leans in, grinning with animal ferocity. "The blonde guy? Sack, or something? Fuck 'im. He almost blew up Earth to 'save it' from me, the big bad general. The big, scary saiyan. Orenji had to sacrifice himself to stop the blast, and that caused Sohko to go golden and the Majin guy to snap out of his bipolarity."
The larger saiyan continues after casting an amused glance at his companion. "Meanwhile, I gathered all of the Dragon Balls on Namek. All that was required was to wait for Rensou's triumphant return.
"There were two wishes. One, was made to restore Vegeta to as it was before the demon Namekian's arrival.
"The second, I offered to the general."
The larger saiyan glances at his companion and smiles. "He wished back the innocent individuals he killed on the assault on Kold."
The smaller saiyan shrugs when the reporter looks in on him. "Immortality is boring, anyway."
"And that's where the war ended."
The larger saiyan re-ignites his cigar with a burst of ki. "We both attoned."
The reporter smiles despite himself. "And what are you doing now?"
Boliko smiles. "Onia Koregutsu is three years old and about to ascend into a super saiyan. She fancies Tsuken."
"The saiyan solar empire has stopped recruiting planets. Instead, it is strengthening the current ones. Mato is heading the Vegeta rejuvenation project and the planet now flourishes with life for the first time since the saiyan-tsuful war.
"Earth chose to be independent, and one known as Ark rose to become the prime minister. The world returned to an era of peace.
"Namek purged it's demon problem relatively shortly after the war ended, and I personally dealt with many of them.
"I haven't been keeping tabs on many. I'm a family man now." And the larger saiyan laughs.
