what a cute doujin

courtneysmovieblog  asked:

Just had time to think through my request in more detail: I once saw this doujinshi where Chichi was sick and Goku was watching over her all worried, and he kisses her while she's sleeping and gets all embarrassed when she wakes up, but she smiles all happy. I don't know if you've seen this, since it's been on Tumblr a couple times, but how about turning that into a fic?

Author Notes: It’s a cute doujin. Hope it’s cool what I did with this. I, uh, just kinda went with something.

Title: Your Presence

“All right, Pan, I think the flowers look good now.”

“Flowers will help Grandma feel better, right?”

“Mmhm. Let’s let her rest some, though.”

“Okay! Can we play with Uncle Goten now?”


“Hey, don’t tell her yes without asking me first.”

“Aw c'mon, Goten, you know she-”

The voices faded, slowly disappearing, growing muffled with the squeak of the door closing. They needed to fix that door. Once she was well enough, she’d make sure to get Goku or one of the boys to get to work on that. Once she was well.

For now, Chi-Chi simply wanted to sleep off the sickness. It didn’t seem to want to leave her alone. Sickness at her age was harder to shake than when she’d been younger. Back then, a day of rest would be all she’d need. Now, it’d been a couple days at least and she was still feeling under the weather. Enough to be confined to the bedroom, told to rest all day long.

It was a little annoying, but there wasn’t much she could do about it. Accept her fate and stay in bed. At least the kids came by to visit. Bringing her grandbaby by was nice to see, and the flowers were so thoughtful.

Eyes closed, Chi-Chi tried to let the thoughts drift away. Tried to let sleep take her. She needed rest. But, oh, she just wasn’t really tired. It was a little difficult to fall asleep when the body wanted to sit up and do more, even if it was more than it could handle right now.

Pressure pushed into the side of the bed, and she tried not to smile at the warmth she could feel near her legs. Chi-Chi didn’t know a thing about how to sense ki or whatever it was the boys did all the time. But she had been married to Goku long enough to recognize when his presence was in the room. He was quiet, but he didn’t seem to want to leave her side. Even when the kids were in, he’d been hovering somewhere behind them, no doubt. And now that they were gone, well, he leaned against the bed.

As the days passed and her illness stayed, Goku spent more and more time at her bedside. Not really speaking. Trying to let her sleep. But she could sense him. Almost feel that presence. Warm. Comforting.


He’d always been one to freak out a little when she was sick. The first time she came down with something when they were married, early, early into their marriage, he had panicked about every little thing. As if he wasn’t one to get sick often. Or he didn’t know the difference between something mild and simple compared to a serious disease. She almost laughed at the memory.


After all, she was trying to sleep. She shouldn’t be laughing.

Of course when he’d been sick, he’d been like a whiny child. Thankfully, he didn’t get sick often. And the worst, the heart virus, was long past. One of the most frightening moments of her life.

She wasn’t sick with anything crazy like that. Just a simple cold. A little summer fever. Her body had a hard time fighting it, but she was sure it would pass in time. At the very least, it didn’t seem to be getting worse. She promised to tell the boys at the first sign if it did.

Nope, it was just a matter of waiting it out. And resting as she waited. The heat in her face was certainly something she could do without. And the aches in her joints. Oh, she didn’t like coming down with sickness at this age. It was no fun. Not that it was ever fun, but, well, this felt worse somehow.

Pressure on the bed shifted. Goku must be changing positions. Like his hand was pushing down on the bed next to her or -

Warmth hit her mouth. Nice, warm lips touching her own. She froze for a moment, wondering why he was kissing her when she was sick. Sick and supposed to be sleeping.

Did he do that often? Catch her when she was asleep? The little rascal. That was no fair. How many times had he done that to her? She didn’t like the thought of missing out on Goku’s kisses. His sweet little pecks weren’t exactly rare commodities, but they were special to her all the same.

Blinking her eyes open, she managed to catch him red handed this time. His widening eyes and growing blush showed the truth, too, that he had been sure she was sleeping. He almost looked a little guilty, like a kid caught stealing a cookie before supper.

“Ah, Chi-” His voice cut off, eyes glancing to the side, hand going behind his head. “S-sorry.”

Since shaking her head would have been a horrible idea – she didn’t want to do anything that would compound the headache she was currently suffering – Chi-Chi instead made sure to smile. Wide and open and even give him a light giggle, too. Her voice, when she finally worked the dryness out of her mouth, came out raspy and soft, but there was no doubt in her mind that he’d be able to hear her weak whispers.

“You’re really worried, aren’t you?”

His blush grew, continuing to rub at his head. “Uhm. I can’t help it. I don’t like it when you’re sick, Chi-Chi.”

Smiling again, she reached up to touch his cheek. It was so cool compared to what she was used to. Goku usually warmed her up. But, she supposed, the sickness made her skin a higher temperature than even his normal state. Her arm shook a little as she rubbed at the blush on his face. She didn’t really have the strength to hold it up for long, but resting against him would be fine, especially if he pressed his hand over hers like that.

“I’m fine,” she whispered. “It’ll pass.”

Goku hummed, lightly stroking the back of her hand with his thumb. “You think?”

“Mmhm,” she hummed back. “You can kiss me again if you want.”

“Are you sure?” He asked, even as his eyes lit up a little. “I thought you needed to sl-”

“Just kisses,” she warned. “And make sure you don’t get sick either.”

Goku smiled, leaning down to whisper against her lips. “I’ll try not to.”

Slowly and gently, he brought her hand down to the bed, squeezing lightly as he connected their mouths for the second time. They shared a few more sweet kisses before she gave in and said she really did need to sleep. But, as she closed her eyes, Chi-Chi felt his presence hovering by her bed, and she was confident that he’d stay by her side well through the night.
