Only the weakest, in body or mind, were spared that backstabbing little prick’s pogrom. Vegeta had survived by sheer luck, stealing one of the pods intended for some low-class warrior.
Now, Vegeta was alone, the last of his race, stuck on some backwater planet. Sooner or later Freeza would undoubtedly catch up to him, but Vegeta would do his damnedest to make sure that he’d be ready when that happened.
But first, he would have to put up with being treated like an invalid. In secret, Vegeta was grateful, but did the old fart really have to call him “Veggie-poo”?
Unnecessarily Long and Tiresome Authoress’ Notes:
No, no bumps on the head for Vegeta. His character growth will happen the long, painful way.
