She said his name hesitantly. He still hadn't moved. His eyes seemed blank. Dull. Like he really didn't see her.
This time she took a step forward.
And got a reaction.
He took a step back.
She choked and felt her lip begin to tremble again.
What was going on? He wasn't happy to see her, that much was obvious. But it broke her heart all the same. The least he could do was yell at her. Bitch at her. Give her some form of recognition.
But there was nothing.
She wanted to cry. Was very near doing so. And it made the situation so much worse. She had cried so much already.
And now she cried for him again.
But he was here!
He was there with her. All she had to do was reach out.
And it was worse than when he had died. When he was dead...just dead...she had come to terms with the fact that she could no longer see him. Or feel him. She could no longer be with him.
But she was here with him now.
And she could feel him, damn it!
She could see him.
And she noticed the halo floating above his head.
He's still dead...
Her eyes grew wide. Did that mean she was dead, too?
Her legs buckled beneath her and she fell to the dirt, scraping her knees. She couldn't take it.
She looked up and saw him studying her closely.
With trembling arms, she reached out to him.
Please, Vegeta. Please.
Her arms shook and clearly expressed her plead. She was begging him.
But he didn't come.
And Bulma realized she must be in hell.
