Oh, Goku, will you never learn?

That young lady you brought with you for this trip—ChiChi, was it?—is plenty pure-hearted, and that is good enough for me. I must confess, though, I did find it quite amusing when she pulled that tail of yours, sending you falling over sideways. All right, all right—if I had a head, I would have laughed it clean off my shoulders. I know it hurts you, but it is quite comical to see you, who has so few weaknesses, toppling over like a sapling in a strong wind.

Off to see the old man again. Master Roshi, the one who introduced me to you. He remains as he always was, slightly less *ahem* than pure, but so be it. Something about a fan to put out the mountain of fire. Just a typical errand on a typical day in your life, is it not, Goku?

Still, I do not think that the comments about the girl’s outfit were appropriate, child. Bright stars, let her be! I have no great love of the color orange (I very much prefer yellow, thank you very much), and yet you do not hear me saying unkind things about your choice of wardrobe. Had I a manner of speech, I would chastise you for this, but no matter. I cannot, and what’s done is already done.

When I chose you, I never realized that bearing you would lead the both of us into so many interesting situations and awesome adventures. This is simply another task to be completed before you can gather another one of your Dragonballs. Locked up in the girl’s palace on top of the towering inferno, is it? That is sort of funny.

I have to say this: that girl’s father, the Ox-King, is just plain scary! Coming after you with that axe! Well, he recognized me, most likely from his days of training under the old man. Extraordinary how things can work out for the best. When he realized you were a student of Roshi’s, his attitude changed quite a bit, did it not? So of course you went off to get that fan from the old one to help the giant. You just cannot resist the opportunity to help people, can you, Goku? Even if one of the people you are trying to help is your enemy, your opponent.

That is one of the things I love about you, and that is one of the reasons I chose you.
