Danko, the leader of this army stands looking on with please, but without any emotion. A woman falls to her knees in front of him

WOMAN
Please, I beg you stop.

Danko, retrieves his pistol. Shoots the young lady without thinking twice.

DANKO
Listen up. Nobody else has to die, just hand over the Dragon Ball and we walkout of here.                                                  We know that Guardian is here. Hand him over and this ends.

INT. Inside one of the barricade huts

The Guardian holding the six star Dragon ball. He fights whether to hide, or run away. But he knows, he’s cursed the people of this village in coming here. He knows what he must do.

EXT- Outside the hut

The Guardian sprints out of the hut he’s hiding in. Uses his sword to cut down the first two Red Ribbon Troops in his way. He jumps in mid air landing feet away from Danko. Danko looks on, without much fear.

DANKO  ( CONT’D)
Well, it’s nice of you for showing up.

GUARDIAN

I won’t allow you to harm these people anymore.

DANKO
Is that so. Well, hand over the Dragon Ball then.

GUARDIAN
You can take this Dragon Ball when I’m dead……

A knife pushes through the guardians back, exiting through his stomach, he looks in shock. Danko smiles at him. Adam, his right hand man snuck behind the guardian for an easy kill.

DANKO
I’ll be taking the Dragon Ball now.

The guardian falls to the floor, the pouch he carries the dragon ball in falls, exposing the six star ball.

DANKO ( CONT’D)
Three down..

ADAM
Four to go.

Danko reaches down to collect the dragon ball

DANKO
Alright men, lets move out.

SOLIDER
Sir, what about the civilians hiding inside their houses?

DANKO
Burn them alive.

INT.  IN THE FOREST– DAY

A Sixteen year old Goku, is hanging from a tree with his bare feet. Eye’s closed , wearing his blue gi. He hangs motionless, at peace, concentrating in sharpening his sense as his Grandfather Gohan has taught him. Training him to feel out danger before it attacks.

The snap of a twig in the distances, brings Goku to full alert. He smiles, knowing what’s coming next. His Grandfather Gohan appears from behind, he quickly jumps in mid air, trying to knock Goku off the tree. Goku quickly does a full swing around the branch he’s on, making Gohan miss.

Both land to the floor, ready to fight. Goku smiles, Gohan motions the boy to come. Goku comes full force, throwing left and right punches, Gohan blocks each one. Gohan attempts a leg  swipe to knock Goku to the floor. But, the sixteen year old is not fooled, he jumps back, putting distances between them both. Goku is pleased, he was able to feel his Grandfathers attack, before he even attempted it

GOKU
Got to try harder than that.

GOHAN
Is that so?

Goku, runs at Gohan. Gohan steps back, sets himself up, he harness his Ki to deliver  the Shadow Crane, before Goku can even dodge the attack, the shadow crane strike hits him, knocking him to the floor.

GOKU
Ouch ( Smiling)

GOHAN
( laughing)  was that hard enough?

Goku jumps back to his feet, grinning, enjoying their daily spars.

GOKU                                                                                                                                          Well, Grandpa , one of these days that move won’t work on me. You’ll have to try                          something even harder than the shadow crane.

GOHAN
How about the Kamehameha wave?

GOKU
let’s stick to the shadow crane.

GOHAN
You’re getting better at seeing my attacks.

INT. The Home of Gohan

Both Goku and Gohan walk back to their small house in the middle of woods. A beautiful view of the mountain tops, and forest roam the area. A small village is visible in the distances

GOKU
I just need to work harder.

GOHAN
Remember Goku, your Ki. Is your best friend use it.

GOKU
You say that with everything

GOHAN
That’s not true

GOKU
( Imitating Gohan voice )     Goku use the bar of soap it’s your best friend. Or the fork

GOHAN
( Laughs)

GOKU
But, you’re right. I need to learn how to develop my Ki.

GOHAN
Remember,  It’s the life force inside you, everyone has it. You just have to learn how to control it, and use it. It takes years of practice, but once you master it. You can draw the energy from life forms and the earth itself.

GOKU
Would I be able to talk to the plants.?

GOHAN
If you do, you must be on something.

INT. Gohan’s House

We enter the small house with a meal already prepared, for the both of them

GOKU
You know, if you wanted to tell me that Launch was ready, you could have just said so.

GOHAN
And what’s the fun in that?

Goku walks to the alter, where the four star Dragon Ball is held. Goku looks thinking of his fallen father and  mother.

GOKU
Hey, Grandpa. What can you tell me about my Mom and Dad ?

GOHAN
They were brave warriors Goku. Amazing at that

GOKU
How did they die?

Gohan beings to eat, trying to avoid his questions.

GOKU ( CONT’D)
One day, Grandpa, you’ll have to tell me.

Goku joins his grandfather. Gohan stares at  frustrated Goku, who seeks answers to the origin of his parents , a part which has remain in the dark his entire life. Gohan looks intensely at the Dragon Ball, remembering it’s origins.

EXT. A Close up of the four star bal

GOHAN
The Dragon Balls, were created to save mankind. Give the person one wish, whatever that might be. The God that created the Dragon Balls sought to keep a group of faithful warriors to protect them, so no one would miss use them. These warriors would have to be above all, protecting the innocent from any danger. The Dragon Balls were only to be used as a last resort.

Goku is confused why his Grandfather is telling him the history of the Dragon Balls

GOHAN ( Cont’d )

2,000 years ago a demon name of Piccolo sought the Dragon Balls to grant himself immortally. The Warriors who were meant to protect the Dragon Balls had never faced an evil so great. This demon was beyond anything they had seen. the Guardians almost failed, had it not been for the Jar Of Orion that sealed the Demon for good.

EXT. Back to Goku and Gohan sitting around the table

GOKU
I know this story Grandpa.

GOHAN
You’re parents died, Goku, horning this code.

GOKU
They were guardians?

GOHAN
I trained them to be guardians. They died, before they had the chance.

GOKU
Who killed them?

GOHAN
The time when Lord Piccolo was alive, a group of people worshiped him. Despite all the killings, these people still cheered him on. Called him a hero. When their Lord was sealed, these people sought the Dragon Balls to set him free, because the enchantment the Guardians set on Piccolo was so strong, no man could break the jar. These people Goku, killed your parents.

INT. THE TEMPLE OF THE GUARDIANS – Night

one young couple see the group of attackers approaching the temple

GOHAN
They came in the night, without making a sound

Both clash with the invading enemies that carry blades and swords

GOHAN ( CONT’D)
The four star ball would have been in their hands, had it not been for your parents, who fought groups of attackers, they were out number, but still they stood their ground in order to protect the world.

In the end, they’re cut, and stabbed they can’t mange to keep themselves up, the dragon ball remains at the alter. They fall to floor, with their young child walking up to the dead bodies.

GOKU
Ok, I can do this. It’s all me.

Goku draws the power from his Ki, he can feel the energy build up. His aim is on a tree in the distances, he takes a deep breath, remembering the scripture that taught the basic steps to kamehameha. he releases the ki blast, but fails to do the Kamhameha wave, he only manages to throw a strong gust of wind at the tree.

ADAM
What if we can’t ?

DANKO
That’s no an option.

ADAM

EXT. A Close up of the four star ball

INT. RED RIBBON AIRCRAFT

Back on the aircraft, Danko is talking to the leader of the Red Ribbon Army, Ando via a 3D holograph projection.

ANDO
So, they knew of our of attentions.

DANKO
Seems that way

ANDO
What’s the progress on the Dragon Balls?

DANKO
We have three in our possessions, are men are scouting the area to find the Dragon Ball the Guardian hid from us.

ANDO
We need all Seven, Danko.

DANKO
I’m aware, sir.

ANDO
It’s the only way we can summon, Lord Piccolo from the Jar Of Orion.

DANKO
Can you trust this Lord Piccolo, sir?

ANDO
Having doubts?

DANKO
I wouldn’t put my faith in the hands of something so, unhuman.

ANDO
Find the Dragon Balls, Danko.

The projection fades away.  A woman, walking onto the deck, her purple hair, and red reptilian eye’s focus on Danko. She goes by the name of Yuma, a well placed assassin for the group, who has returned from a scouting mission for them.

YUMA
You don’t seem on board with the others?

DANKO
Ah, Yuma, what brings you here

YUMA
Just thought I would stop in and say hi.

DANKO
Well, hello. Now leave.

YUMA
You didn’t answer my  question.

DANKO
Ando, might worship this lord piccolo and believe he holds the knowledge to control it. But, I see otherwise.

YUMA
Yet, you use the blood of the monster?

DANKO
I do. And that’s what scares me, if are own strength can be altered by this demons blood. How powerful can this monster be.

YUMA
Well.

Yuma, wraps her arms around danko sensually

YUMA ( CONT”D)
Why not, wish for something else?

DANKO
Like what ?

YUMA
Something that’s worth a damn.

DANKO
Are you telling me, to go against Ando?

YUMA
Think of the wish that can be made. Internal youth, Internal power. Or ruler of the world. Doesn’t it have a ring to it?

DANKO
Back to work Yuma. We have are next target.

Yuma walks away, with a devilish smile. Danko looks at the Dragon Balls pondering if he should do what Yuma said. Granting a wish that would give him ultimate power.

INT. GOHAN HOUSE

GOHAN
I don’t know, but I can feel it.

Gohan eye’s don’t leave the dragon ball, he can feel the darkness hovering over him

GOHAN ( CONT’D)
I need you to take the Dragon ball with you Goku, and escape from here.

GOKU
What, I’m not going anywhere.

GOHAN
Whatever is coming, I need to face it alone

GOKU
Grandpa, that’s insane. Let me help you fight, together….

GOHAN
Goku, no. I need you to warn the other Guardians, they need to know what’s happing.

GOKU
How will I find them, I don’t even know where they are?

GOHAN
Neither do I. Secrecy was are tool to keep us safe. Someone must have spoken, someone within the Guardians broke the silence.

GOKU
That’s not possible.

The entire rooms begins to tremble with a violent force. Goku and Gohan run outside to see the Red Ribbon Aircraft flying above them, casting a huge shadow over the area.

GOKU ( CONT’D)
It’s them, isn’t it?

GOHAN
Yes.

GOKU
let me fight beside you.

GOHAN
No, I won’t have my only Grandson be put in harms way. I need you to take the Dragon Ball, seek out Master Roshi and Kato.

GOKU
But, you said someone inside the Guardians broke the silence. How do I know if they can be trusted?

GOHAN
Those are the only two masters I know who would never turn their backs.

Gohan puts the Four Star Dragon Ball, inside the pouch and hands it to Goku.

GOHAN ( CONT’D)

EXT. THE FORSEST – DAY

Goku runs through the woods, fighting the urge to return back. Half-way to the  woods, Goku runs into Adam, and a group of Red Ribbon troops.

ADAM
Well, what do we have here?

Goku, stares them down, studying the weapons in their hands

ADAM
Look, boy. Don’t make things hard, just stand down and you won’t get hurt.

GOKU
What brings you to my part of town. Surely it’s not for picking berries.

ADAM
Pretty funny kid.

Adam sees the pouch Goku has on the left side of his thigh.

ADAM ( CONT’D)
What’s in the pouch?

GOKU
Nothing  interesting.

ADAM
Hand it over

GOKU
No problem

Goku throws the pouch at Adam direction in mid air, at the same time runs at him full speed. Before the pouch reaches Adam, Goku kicks him in the chest, sending him flying into the trees. Goku catches the pouch in his hand before it hits the ground.

The Guards prepare to aim and shoot and Goku. Goku, focus his Ki, and unleashes a force push, throwing every guard to every side, knocking them out cold

Adam returns to his feet, shocked in what just happened. Unable to believe how much power, Goku possessed. Adam, charges up his Ki shooting dark orbs of energy  at Goku.

Goku dodges each attack, the ground explodes into pieces underneath him

GOKU
Woo hoo. That’s a pretty cool trick.

ADAM
You filthy little punk, you die now.

Adam, and Goku battle it all, they begin to exchange blows in mid air. Goku smiling as he fights it out with him. Goku uses speed to outmaneuver Adam, he’s able to dodge every attack, and spin around causing Adam to lose focus. Goku kicks him, with a mule kick that launches Adam five feet in the air, before Adam lands, Goku performs the Shadow Crane,  that sends Adam out of sight.

GOKU
That took care of him.

INT. GOHAN’S HOUSE

Danko walks up to the alter where the Four Star Dragon Ball is held. He opens the Alter to find that’s it’s gone. He feels a blade press against his throat.

GOHAN
What do you people want?

DANKO
Impressive.

GOHAN
Answer me!

DANKO
What anyone wants with the Dragon Balls, power.

GOHAN
I know what runs through your veins. This Demon will only bring death to you.

DANKO
You have no idea, what the future holds.

Danko esacpes the hold so quickly, leaving Gohan holding the knife in mid air.

GOHAN
The blood ?

DANKO
It’s amazing what it can do, isn’t it?

Danko walks away, from the house stepping outside so they can have more room to fight

DANKO ( CONT’D)
I’ve heard all the stories about you Guardians, and how much power you posses. I can’t help but feel that part is a lie, because you’ve been so easy to kill.

GOHAN
Who broke the silence?

DANKO
Defeat me, and I’ll tell you.

Gohan pulls 3 draggers from his back pocket and launches them at Danko.

Danko slows down time itself , and is able to catch all 3 daggers . Gohan Jumps in mid air, Firing a Ki blast at him, Danko swipes it aside sending it crashing in the unknown. Gohan is five feet away from Danko, he comes at him with everything he has. Danko dodges them, making Gohan’s attack look effortless

Danko catches Gohan’s left foot, spins him around and caves his fist into his stomach. Sending Gohan hurling to the floor, Gohan wipes the blood from his mouth. Uses all his Ki, to launch blast after blast. Having each one swatted away.

DANKO
Come on, I thought you people had more fight in you

Gohan lunges at Danko, Danko powers up, delivering a Ki energy attack that tears every bone in Gohan’s body. Gohan lands on the floor face down, blood dripping from his mouth. He tries to get back to his feet. The life in his eyes fading away.

DANKO ( CONT’D)
Get up, you piece of trash. Get up, and fight me.

Gohan is on his feet, trembling to stand still.

GOHAN
You will never have all seven Dragon Balls.

DANKO
We’ll see about that.

Danko Delievers the final blow, a forceful punch in the chest cavity of Gohan, killing him.

INT- FOREST – DAY

Goku stops running, as he feels his Grandfather last moments of life, Goku fights back tears in his eyes, and the anger running through him

GOKU
Grandfather, no.

Goku knows, he must he keeping moving. He must warn the others before it’s to late.
