It had been such a great day today in Satan City, the home of the statue of of the man known to have saved the world from utter peril thousands of years ago. As one would assume, the city was very well populated, and it showed on this bright and sunny day as people swarmed the streets outside while trying to get to whatever destination they had in sight. Some were looking to get to work to make the money that they had to while others were already on their way back home. Some stuck around in the open just to look at the sights and some headed to big events happening, including the very popular 'Satan's Super Beauties Pageant.'
This special occasion was marked by the hundreds of seats filled within a large dimly lit building. Everyone had their eyes on the stage in the front of them which showcased the many different super models that came from around the world to show the people of Satan City and other visitors that they were the best of the best, and it seemed to get folks hyped, which was good for the organizers of the contest that was getting most of the sweet sweet zeni out of this. Everything was going fine, until it wasn't.
Outside of the building, where there should have been a clear path to the large ball of heat formed many dark clouds that loomed over Satan City, appearing very quickly very oddly. A hot day now turned into a cold, rainy one as water started to pour down onto the ground hard. The citizens of the town began rushing to get inside of wherever was closest to them rather than going about their day regularly as they had previously done. This made sense seeing as it wasn't practical keep going on while as wet as fish. This stayed true for a certain man walking down one of the sidewalks.
"Aw man, now I can't meet up with him," Brock pouted aloud, referring to a scheduled gathering he had with one of his friends in the park. It wasn't normal for two old guys to be playing chess in this type of weather anyhow. Fortunately for him he was an odd fellow so of course he already had a sweater on beforehand. The Saiyan also sported blue boxing shorts and boxing shoes, but at least his torso wouldn't get soaked. Having walked around for the past hour, the senior decided to head back to his home. He ascended to the sky after taking his hands out of his pockets and was about to leave the settlement, but the weather got worse and prompted lightning to appear. Multiple bolts were shot from the sky, one hitting the top of a large blue building that happened to be the one that the pageant show was being hosted in. The collision caused an explosion that left a hole in the roof, but more than that it somehow started a fire that started spreading rapidly. Everyone in the structure began pointing above them and shouting in unison as they all attempted to run to the exits and head outside. Brock was able to spot the place from his location in the air and saw people leave out in a quick rush.
"Oh brother," he commented in a frustrated way. The aged man began to fly towards the area to see to it that everyone would make it out safe, all the while wondering just where the hell this random rainstorm came from.
