Tsk, tsk, tsk.
There you go again, Goku. I just cannot believe you sometimes.
Bright stars, can’t you keep yourself out of trouble for ten seconds? Apparently not, since it seems like I am always running around, zooming in at the last minute to drag you out of some mischief by the scruff of your neck.
Has it been this long since we met? Since I chose you, so to speak? And you have not changed. You have gotten older, yes, but otherwise, you are exactly the same as the day we met. Amazing.
I have seen some of the things you have done, Goku. There was that business with that mercenary assassin. Tao, was it? For a minute, I was afraid he had killed you, but you are unusually resilient. Taking down the entire Red Ribbon Army single-handedly? You must have the blood of several hundred people on your hands, and yet your heart is as clean as newly-cast crystal.
That tournament you fought in at the fortune-teller’s palace was so unbelievable. How can anyone win against an invisible man? Well, apparently your friend can. (That’s something else I wish I could discuss with you—for someone so innocent, you certainly have a lot of...shall we say, unusual friends?) And to defeat your own grandfather in battle. He was so proud of you. And so am I.
There is still one thing I am very unclear on. That first time, when I searched your mind and heart for the purity that would deem you worthy, I saw glimpses of something...different. I am not sure if you even know that these vague memories are locked inside your memory. I can not even piece together what they are. They are too faint, merely glimpses of something that you probably do not even remember. Perhaps flashes of something deep in your past, or of something that might have been. I do not know, but I suppose that it does not matter now. Whatever it is, I do not think that it will ever resurface. So why worry about it if it will not affect you?
Goku, what are we going to do with you? You are still so young, and you have so much behind you. Then again, you also have so much ahead of you. I very much doubt that your life will ever be a peaceful one, and I strongly doubt that you will ever have a quiet moment. But knowing you, the adventure will be a welcome thing in your life. If you are still the pure person I chose, perhaps I will still be there when these escapades happen.
