Typha had his eyes closed his sword in his hand as he was in front of a tree. One of the Ogre's had ask him to cut into a design of his son so he could have it front of his yard. Typha was no artist with a brush but since this required a sword this would not be so difficult. In his mind's eye he imaged the form of the ogre. Typha could see it clearly it was only just putting it to form that mattered now. A beat of sweat fell from his face before he swung. With rapid speed hard to keep track with one's eye he cut the tree forming the image of the ogre. The Ogre handed him a sandwich and nodded. "Thank you here your reward." Typha nodded and walked off.
He didn't need a reward but he had been a long time since he had a nice sandwich. He found a bench to sit down on and began to eat up. It tasted amazing! His eyes were wide with surprise. How did they create food that was this good? Was this one of the things in the afterlife had been missing out on. Typha let out a sigh looking up. "Guess there is a lot I still need to learn." Typha mused as he went about eating and sitting. Yudi strolled up sitting down near by. "What got you so happy looking?" The ogre asked confused as Typha pointed at the Sandwitch. "This is so good why didn't you tell me the food here was so good?" Yudi shrugged. "Thought you were a ghost and were not hungry." Typha nodded that was a good point. He really was not hungry but it was just good.
One thing about Otherworld that Kiko often got tired of was the constant daylight and sunlight and bright and happy everything. Not to mention that she had been put through school by both Sabanto and Basil. Ugh. She was exhausted and needed a break. Without a care or a thought to what sort of souls might be wandering about, Kiko hurried over to the first bench that she saw and plopped down onto it. The hard surface made her miss her couch back on Vegeta.
“Ugh… this Secretary thing is more work than I thought…”
Her stomach grumbled loudly. Mm, this was supposed to be her lunch break too. Not that she needed food. But… her experiences in the mortal world had made her deeply enjoy the occasional snack and meal. Opening her eyes, Kiko lifted her head and glanced across the bench to its other occupant who was snacking on a sandwich and shooting the breeze with an ogre. She eyed the sandwich jealously.
“Hello, foolish mortal… How is your afterlife going? Wait a second… Foolish Typha?! Is that you?!”
Kiko shot up into a sitting position as her memories started to come back to her. Yes! This was the foolish mortal prince whose chambers she had imperiously barged in on! She remembered him. He had died already? Prematurely too. Kiko frowned a little bit at that. He should have had so many more years ahead of him. It was a shame really. She really hadn’t expected to see him again here.
Typha turned his head as someone called out to him. Her voice rang in his head and he knew who it was. He couldn't forget the Shinjin that snuck into his room and interrogated him about Konats. Yudi turned his head to look at Kiko annoyance forming on his face. "Don't you know who he is. He's is..." Then she said who he was. Yudi sank in his head. "So she knows but hey why is she calling you foolish?" Typha looked at Yudi. "We meet in the living world. She was on Konats checking out what had happened on my homeworld. I bet a ton of people coming back at once makes people look with curiosity especially the Shinjin." Typha said to Yudi who nodded. "Makes sense but she does not seem to know who you are learning under. You'd think she'd have more respect." Yudi shrugged as Typha waved his hand. "It not really a big deal." Finally, he turned back to look at Kiko. "Yes I died in a fight agiasnt a demon called Monster and now I am up in the afterlife. Soon though I'll be back to life if he was lucky." Typha smiled. "Then there will be a lot to fix but nothing I cannot handle."

While expecting an answer from foolish Typha, some ogre spoke up and got all up in arms about her chatting it up with the dead Typha. Kiko shot him an annoyed look. What ogre had the gall to talk to her like that anyway? Rude. It seemed like he didn’t know who she was. Hmph. Well, she’d get Typha to set him straight. Still, it was weird that an ogre was attending a mortal. Annoyed by the two going off on a tangent, Kiko crossed her arms and pouted.
“Monster, huh? Demons are really unoriginal these days. Well, glad to hear that you’ll be back on your feet soon. The door to Otherworld has been a revolving door ever since those Dragon Balls were recreated, huh? I’ve been crazy busy too. I went to Vegeta after visiting Konats and tried to become the Guardian of Vegeta.”
Kiko made the so-so sign with her hand.
“So that was going eh…? You know, all one step at a time to Supreme Kai, I guess. Actually, I heard there was some kind of positioning opening up alongside King Yemma, so that’s why I’m here. Did I tell you that I’m going to be Supreme Kai? I dunno. Well, I am. I’m gonna be the youngest one! Ever!”
She had the slightest awareness that she was rambling. Clearing her throat, Kiko glanced to his sandwich. I looked good. Hm.
She didn't seem that happy guess they had offended her. Typha doubt he could really apologize now. So he just let her speak her mind. Kiko seemed to know the afterlife really had been on the upswing guess everyone had to have noticed right? The dragonballs really had made the thing quite messy. Still, he was surprised when she tried to become Guardian of Vegeta. "I didn't think you being a guardian was your type of job. Plus being the Guardian of Vegeta on top of that." Typha shook his head. He doubted the people of Vegeta wanted a guardian in the first place they would settle with a queen with the powers of a god. Then she explained Kiko was looking to become a Supreme Kai. Typha nearly snorted in shock. She didn't even seem to be in the same league of King Kai or King Yemma. "I suppose if you work hard you can reach any goal you want too though that makes me curious." Typha shook his head. "See I am unsure what a Supreme Kai is. Cause I'm training with King Kai is he a supreme Kai or is that someone higher I don't know about." He'd looked at Yudi who shrugged since he really didn't know what a Supreme Kai was.

“Mm, well, I actually really like the mortal realm. It’s a lot more interesting than up here, ya know? I thought Guardian would be a neat way to get the Kai hierarchy to realize that I’m the next Supreme Kai. Though I kinda got the feeling that people on Vegeta aren’t super partial to goddesses? Weird, am I right?” Kiko shrugged. She wasn’t one to bestow blessings on the ungrateful masses. She tilted her head to the side on hearing that King Kai had taken Typha under his wing.
“Oh, yeah? King Kai hasn’t taken on a new student in a long time. Good for you, foolish Typha. As for what Supreme Kai is… Hm… They outrank both King Yemma and King Kai! That’s the easiest way to put it. And that’ll be me soon! There’s only one… and they kind of oversee all the other Kais? They’re the best! And that’ll be me. Right now, I’m looking at this new position that opened up recently. It’s gonna help me get the other Kais to realize that they’re looking at the new Supreme Kai!”
Typha nodded in agreement as Kiko noted the afterlife was not as exciting as the living world. Still, he was unsure if she was really ready to be a guardian. How old was she anyway? He was really unsure with these Kai some of them looked so young were most he meets were thousands of years old. Then again Kiko seemed to pretty bratty maybe she was quite young. Typha honestly really had no idea and he was smart enough not to ask the ladies age that was an easy way to get hit. "Yah I don't think they are the type to really worry about gods. They are about strength and power not worshiping someone that may or may not be powerful. Plus they already got Kayen I think she the closest to a goddess they are going to get." Typha said honestly.
Then she gave some facts he was not aware of. He kind of expected King kai to be at the top but this Supreme Kai figure was at the top. She said the Supreme Kai outranked both King Kai and King Yemma were under him. Typha could not believe that but she was not the type to lie so he guessed he was just ill-informed of the truth of the universe. He supposed that was how things were. Still, he could not imagine her being this Supreme Kai figure. She didn't seem to be ready for that but guess she would get to live for a long time. "It seems like you're a long way to a goal like that. It is good that your goals are so high but I don't think it will be as easy as getting a postion. If so why would someone like King Kai not be a Supreme Kai or like any other Kai." Typha shrugged in confusion.

“Hey! Kayen isn’t a goddess! I am! Hmph. I won’t tolerate false claims of divinity. She better not get a big head just because she’s really strong,” Kiko grumbled. Quickly magicking up some tea, she sipped it to calm herself down. It didn’t match up to Bravo’s tea, but she would drink it all the same. She listened to Typha cheer her on - as if she needed it - and chuckled at his ignorance of Shinjin culture.
“Ho Ho Ho! Foolish, foolish Typha. You don’t understand. That’s fine! I shall enlighten you. Supreme Kai isn’t a position you earn. Supreme Kais are born. And I was born to be a Supreme Kai, you see. Shinjin are born from fruits of the Kaiju, which are the trees of the world. Very rarely, a Shinjin is born from a golden fruit, and they are automatically the next Supreme Kai! And you are looking at her. I’m just doing some training for my role as Supreme Kai since the current one hasn’t yet taken me under their wing.”
Kiko took a long sip of tea and sighed happily. Yes, indeed! She couldn’t wait. Why hadn’t the Supreme Kai called her in for her training yet, anyway? Hmph. Well, she wasn’t gonna wait thousands of years for them to decide it was time to train her. She would train herself! Everything from being Guardian of Vegeta to the Afterlife Secretary position was in preparation for that. She even had disciples already! If anyone asked her, she was well ahead of the game. In fact, she was ready to be Supreme Kai any time the old one decided to step down. Which they should. Clearly!
"Yes she is not I am well aware," Typha said calmly. "But that does not mean the people of Vegeta may see her as such. One of the First Super saiyans in nearly two centuries? That is hard to top for most people." He supposed that made Nashua and Vocado part of that group of gods too. That was if the people of Vegeta believed that the Super Saiyans were gods among mortals. "I doubt she gonna get a big head over something so small. I think she is not a fan of just having titles but having titles that mean something after proving them in combat or any other field she wants to conquer." Typha shrugged. He was only assuming all of these things guess he could ask if she thought it had gone to her head after he came back to life.
Then Kiko began to explain how she had been born from a golden apple so she was destined to be a Supreme Kai. Typha found that quite odd but he just let her finish about how she was supposed to be a Supreme Kai. Finally, he sighed. "That is a bad mindset. Maybe it the Kai themselves who nailed it into you or just live here but you gotta work for all this stuff. Just cause you were born just not give you the birthright to be this Supreme Kai. You seem to be eager to do hard work but you're too optimistic right now. It won't be that easy and you're going to have to work hard and do a lot of things you may not be happy to do." Maybe Typha was a bit jaded from being dead but he also didn't want to see Kiko fool herself into thinking she was born to be great. No one was.

Foolish Typha sighed at the end of her explanation. Why did the Foolish Typha sigh?! Kiko puffed up, ready to be all offended at the faintest slight. But what he said took the wind out of her sails a little. She frowned at him. If he had said something like that to her when they first met, she would have told him off, but she hesitated now. Something about her time spent in the mortal realms had his words ring true a little. But… she didn’t want to even consider that she wouldn’t be Supreme Kai someday. Kiko furrowed her brow and shot a determined stare at Typha. “Then I’ll work hard! I’ll work a thousand times harder than any Shinjin if that’s what it takes! I’ll study all the subjects! Even math! I hate math, but I’ll do it! I am going to be Supreme Kai! I’ll do whatever it takes to be that!”
Kiko plopped back onto the bench seat and crossed her arms in a huff. She would do it. She was gonna be the youngest Supreme Kai if it killed her! Well, she supposed that she shouldn’t let it kill her. But still! She wasn’t going to get discouraged or give up just because of something foolish Typha said.
Typha looked at Kiko as her brow furrowed. She needed to know she'd have to train hard and not just assume it was some birthright. No one was given anything, not even those born in high status. He didn't get his reputation and strength simply by being born a prince. Typha nodded when Kiko said she would work hard and she'd study everything she needed to study including math. She really wanted to be the supreme Kai huh? Typha grunted. "It's not that easy I suppose but if you work hard you can reach that goal. Just don't think that you have some right to the postion. Nothing is giving to you in this world. If you want something good to happen to you, working hard is exactly what you need to be doing. Anything less and your just tricking yourself into thinking that is enough to reach the top." Typha explained.

“Hmph! I don’t need to hear from you, foolish Typha. I’m working hard.” Kiko snapped back and hopped off their shared bench. She would show him. She was gonna get right back to work. The first thing to do would be to nurture her disciples. She could go bother King Kai about it, but he’d probably just tell her to get off his lawn. The geezer. Hmph. That was fine. She could find training for her disciples on her own. In fact, she had heard of a Saiyan down in HFIL that was training people. She had never been down there before, but she couldn’t let something like that stop her.
“I’m going to get back to work! Gotta find an ogre and write a letter! Bye, foolish Typha! I hope you don’t die again!”
With a wave, Kiko ran off to find her disciples. They were around here somewhere! After that, they had some more work to do before leaving the Upper Worlds. Plus, she had to actually convince Brand to train under a Saiyan who was definitely younger than his grumpy centuries old self. Basil would agree. Bravo… would also be a challenge, but it was no sweat for the future Supreme Kai!
Typha looked at Kiko. "Yeah maybe you don't but I also think I know a little more then you do. So keep working hard if you even are." Typha said looking at Kiko. She seemed to let his advice run through one either and through the other. Typha hoped that she'd learn eventually or maybe just prove him wrong in the accounts he was making of her. Typha nodded when Kiko explained she needed to head off and she had work to do. "I understand. Best luck to you Kiko." Typha bowed his head as she headed off. Typha turned to Yudi who blinked. "She's a Kai maybe talk to her with more respect." Typha shrugged. "She needs to get some respect herself and some more knowledge. Then I might." Typha said with a playful huff. Yudi sighed and shrugged. "I guess."
