Ai started to wake up with a deep throbbing in her head. She slowly sat up and opened her eyes, finding herself in a very dark room.
"What happened...? Where am I?" she asked herself quietly, confused.
"You are in my room onboard my spaceship." a thick voice said, coming from a shadow that was hard to discern in the darkness.
"Who's there?" Ai demanded, trying to sound fierce but wasn't in the best condition after her fight.
"Its Turles, the one who knocked you senseless." Turles said, smiling and stepping into a dim pillar of light.
"Oh great... What do you want?" Ai groaned, rubbing the back of her head.
"You and I are two of the only remaining saiyans left in the galaxy. And us being opposite genders, I don't think I could afford to kill you." he said simply, smiling humorlessly.
"Oh lovely... So what, you want me as a mate?" she asked, feeling a bit scared. She wasn't used to being hit on, despite her beauty. She also knew he could kick her tail.
"Perhaps. Anyway, if you're feeling well enough I would like to show you around my ship. You might want the tour, since you'll be here for awhile." he said. In essence, she was a prisoner for the moment. Ai sighed and got up, her head hurting still.
"Fine, I'll take a look around." she said.
"Good. Follow me, and try not to do anything stupid." Turles said, turning and opening a door, leading her out.
The hallways were brighter, but still had shadows here and there. Turles gave her an almost full tour, showing here the private rooms, the mess hall, and the main room where his men tended to be whenever they wanted to view things, including distant planets to conquer. When Ai and Turles entered Turles' henchmen snickered and smiled at Ai.
"Enjoying your new home cute thing?" Ammond guffawed.
"You can always come visit me whenever ya want." Daiz joined in, cackling.
"Buggers..." Ai muttered.
"Now now, be kind to our guest. She is after all a saiyan and will be with us for quite some time." Turles said, somewhat commanding his men to leave her alone, which they did.
Although no one else knew it, Turles greatly valued Ai. Turles had an unflinching belief that the saiyans were the dominant species in the universe and wished to bring their species back from the brink of extinction. But in order to do that, he needed a mate. To his unrivalled delight, he discovered Ai. Not only was she flowing with saiyan vigor and strength, but she was quite gorgeous, even for a female saiyan. That made her a perfect candidate for a mate and to repopulate the universe with the ultimate warriors. But for that to happen, he needed Ai. There was no way around it.
"Come Ai, we need to discuss matters." he said, turning briskly and leading her back towards his own room.
"What do we need to talk about?" Ai asked.
"We need to discuss the fact that I am perhaps the last living male saiyan and you perhaps the last living female saiyan." he said bluntly.
"Oh boy... I think I know where this is going." she said unhappily.
"You might. The simple fact is, you're staying here with me, and will eventually become the new queen of the saiyans! You certainly have to beauty for the job." he put in, smiling and glancing back at her. Ai blushed.
"Okay, listen mister, I'm not staying here and I want to leave." Ai said, hoping he might listen.
"Well, that isn't going to happen. You are far to valuable to let go. Now, you might as well make yourself comfortable in my room since you're going to be staying there." Turles said.
Ai halted in her tracks.
"Wait, what!?!? There is no way I'm sleeping in the same room as you!" she growled.
"Well, its either my room or one of the private rooms with my men. And I gurantee you they won't be as kind as me." Turles said, smiling grimly. Ai was silent for a moment.
"Fine..." she sighed, hating the idea.
"But if you touch me, I'll blast a hole in the hull and let us all get sucked into space!" she threatened. Turles could tell from the fire in her eyes that she meant it, which only made him like her more.
"But of course. I am a saiyan of my word." he said, grinning widely.
