Warrior's Daughter Chapter 23
As soon as it was safe, Chiyo climbed out of a window on Kame House's second storey and headed for Ginger Town. She couldn't sit idly at home anymore. Something terrible was out there - something even worse than the Androids. She had to know what was going on, even if it meant leaving Papa for a while.
Mama will be mad, she thought, and glanced back at the rapidly disappearing island. But I can't sit around doing nothing.
She sped up; her heart thundered as she imagined what Kuririn and Trunks would say when she caught up to them. Would they be mad? Would they tell her to go back to the island? She hoped not. She didn't want to make any trouble for either of them, but she wouldn't go back.
To her surprise, Kuririn was waiting for her around twenty miles ahead. She sped up, grinning sheepishly. He didn't look mad, though. Just amused.
"I was wondering when you'd hurry up," he said. "I knew you wouldn't stay behind."

"Yesmama?" she murmured, rubbing her eyes.
"We're almost at the Turtle House," Chi-Chi said. "You must have been tired. You slept through the whole journey."
Chiyo clambered to her feet and peered out the window. The sky and sea were a brilliant blue, and they stretched out as far as the eye could see. There was a tiny dot in the centre of the expanse of water.
"Is that it?" she asked.
"Yes." Chi-Chi looked over her daughter's dark head. "I used to bring you here when you were just a baby."
"We're coming up to the Turtle House now," Yamcha called.
Chiyo turned away from the window and glanced around. "Where's Gohan and Trunks?"
