Dib smirked, "I wouldn't have it any other way,
Dib then opened the door as Zim rushed in and pushed
him out of the way.
Gaz was most likely upstairs.
She heard them come in and walked downstairs
Dib was already off in his bedroom, getting himself into
"Hi Gaz-human. The Zim," He paused for dramatic
effect, "Wants to apologize for any
inconvience your idiot brother has caused you because
I'm sure he won't." He said and bowed slightly.
"I...think I missed you." She said and blushed.
"Zim missed you too..." He said and looked down.
"Zim, I've been thinking about what you said the other
day..." She thought slowly, "About, umm dating..?"
She stuttered a little, "I t-think that would be...
umm...alright." Her face was bright red.
Zim looked up.
He smiled happily but then noticed her face's color.
"Gaz! What's wrong with your face?? Why is it that hideous color?"
Zim looked alarmed and then, he extended his long tongue
and licked her face, thinking it might
help it become normal.
"Zim?? What're you doing??" Gaz giggled.
"Trying to fix you!! Can't you see this is a problem? Why aren't
you alarmed?" He questioned frantically.
Gaz spoke softly,
"Zim. I was just a little embarassed I guess..."
"Embarassed?? Embarassed to be in love with the ALMIGHTY IRKEN
ZIM?" He was shouting at that point, "Haa, well.
I guess you must be rather, grateful to be with such an attractive
invader, no?" He said, clearing his throat casually.
Gaz laughed again.
She was cut short by Zim who slammed his lips against hers.
She looked surprised at first but then closed her eyes
and relaxed her muscules.
She her arms around his neck.
He made the kiss deeper, pushing through her lips and into
They locked tongues.
They kissed a long kiss but eventually stopped because he got
a transmission from Gir that he needed tacos.
Zim looked angry, but he forgot about it quickly.
Dib walked out into the doorway where Zim and Gaz still stood.
He shook his head, putting his hand on his forehead.
"This could take some getting used to."
"Oh, get lost, Dib. Can't you see I'm happy?"
Gaz said in her normal voice then looked up at Zim.
"Yes Gaz, I can."
A tiny tear formed in his eyes as he smiled.
His little sister was growing up.
Dib ran over and hugged his little sister.
She resisted at first but then gave in.
"I love you Gaz." Dib said, still hugging her.
She didn't respond but she smiled slightly.
They stopped hugging as Gaz pushed off of him.
"Don't grow up too fast Gaz, okay?" Dib said.
"Whatever, Dib. Go do...some of your paranormal
garbage." Gaz said, annoyed at Dib.
He went back to his room.
He was happy for Gaz but he hoped she wouldn't change.
After many annoying transmissions from Gir, Zim left.
Gaz couldn't wait until tomorrow.
Dib nodded thoughtfully and an awkward smile formed on his face.
"I was just about to say that!" He stated.
Zim grabbed him by the arm and dragged him outside until
they were strolling down the sidewalk.
"I'm not angry with you, Dib." Zim said calmly, but somehow the mocking tone of his voice
"Zim knows why you kissed him yesterday."
Dib's brown eyes widened.
"You do?!?!" Dib shouted slightly, "I hope you know
I feel nothing towards you at all anymore!!!! Why would I like a stupid alien?"
Dib said snickering.
Zim rolled his eyes, he didn't feel like fighting back.
"ANYWAYS," Zim said, annoyed, "I made another pair of contacts. They're
different from the others because the first person that looks into
my eyes becomes my...." he tried to find the words, "uh...love-pig."
He scratched the back of his head nervously, "It
was supposed to last a while, but I guess it only lasted for
24 hours. I kinda thought Gaz was gonna answer the door, but yeah...
Zim laughed more nervously than ever which seemed odd
because he was usually an extremely confident person.
"Zim!!! How could you plan to do something like that to my little sister?!?!"
Dib shouted angrily.
"You know I love her, idiot worm-baby!"
Dib stopped himself. He understood.
"You know, Zim. If she would have been the first person who saw you,
it wouldn't have mattered." Dib's voice sounded light and sweet.
"Because, she likes you, Zim. Alot." Dib smiled a rare smile, "I always
thought you two might end up together, deep down." His voice sounded higher
in pitch, but it was still soft and light.
Zim's face had a greenish glow. He didn't say anything.
He just stood there, a small smile spread on his face.
"Come on, Zim. I think we should go back to my house, I'm sure Gaz is waiting."
Together they walked to the Membrane's house, side by side.
A new friendship was forming between the two.
Maybe rivals could become friends.
It was early, nearly seven in the morning, when Zim awoke to
the sound of screeching.
Zim screamed in his sleep and
opened his large, pink eyes slowly
until they reached their full size.
It seemed as though the thin, green skin around
his eyes and on his eyelids were gripping onto him and refusing to open.
Although they were alien's eyes, they hardly seemed scary.
The tiny Gir was running around the house frantically, waiting at the tv
to watch his favorite show, The Scary Monkey Show.
Zim groaned and stood up, pushing his atennae down
and straightening his uniform.
"GIR!!!" He screamed angrily, giving him a look he knew all to well.
Zim was mad that he had been disturbed in his sleep.
"Mastaaa?" Gir said as tears welled up in his robotic eyes.
Zim gave him a blank look and after a few seconds Gir
returned to his excited state, except this time he wasn't screaming.
The alien placed his contacts onto his eyes and his wig onto his head
He wanted to see Gaz again today, and wanted to clear things up with
He remembered what he did before he went to Dib's house, and now he knew,
It was his fault Dib kissed him.
It was his fault Dib had felt that way.
He wasn't mad at Dib, because...
He could explain.
Dib was already awake and his mind felt clear.
He went to Gaz's room almost immeadiately.
She was lying on her bed, wide awake and playing her Game Slave 2.
Gaz hadn't noticed he was standing in her door way.
"Gaz, I'm sorry... about yesterday." He said, knowing that it wouldn't
be enough to make her forgive him.
She rolled her eyes, and
might have said something, but the door had a pounding knock.
"I'll get it!" Dib claimed, as he had so many in the past.
He saw Zim outside the door.
He also owed him an apology to say the least.
Dib replayed the kissing scene in his head, and to his digust,
felt like gagging.
Why would he ever had done such a foolish thing?
He opened the door after it had been pounded on a number of times.
Zim knew Dib answered the door but he spoke without looking directly
at him, "Dib-stink!!! We need to talk, now!" Zim said, his slightly
high-pitched voice was moving up and down tones.
Zim walked the halls with a extremely dismal expression on his face.
He was worried where Gaz had gone and was saddened by the way she reacted.
Everybody seemed to be talking about what had happened at lunch.
Stupid human scum... he had thought. They had no right to butt into his business.
Sooner or later he realized the time and he scurried to his next class, which was with Dib.
Zim walked in casually and tried to regain the confident look he had always wore.
He suceeded, and took his seat near the window, beside Dib.
This was not his usual seat, but unfortunatley for him, it was the only one available.
He looked over at Dib out of the corner of his eye.
Dib immediately noticed him and gave him a digusted look.
"Listen, alien," he said menacingly, "you are going to be so sorry for what you
did to my sister today... you just wait!!" and resumed his digusted expression.
"Hah! The Zim laughs at your failed attempt to threaten him, Dib!" Zim mocked.
Before Dib could utter another word the bell rang and class began.
Neither of them paid any attention to what was going on around them, they
were consumed in their own thoughts. This made the time pass quickly and
the bell had rang once again.
All of children rushed out of the classroom along with Zim and Dib.
Zim walked home, and Dib rode the bus. Zim wanted nothing to do with Dib,
although he was the least bit scared of him.
Zim admired his gnomes in the front yard. It felt good to be back at
his base. Gir had been running around the house waiting for Zim to come home
all day long. It had been a friday and also Gir's favorite day of the week because
it meant to him that he got to spend two whole days with his master.
Zim flung the door opened and felt no need to announce his presence because Gir
was waiting on the couch for him.
"Masta!!!" Gir screamed happily as he threw himself into Zim's arms, "I missed youu so much!!"
"Gir... GET OFF OF ME!" Zim said loudly, although it didn't bother him that much.
"I's sorry masta. I didn't know it would have upsetted youu! he frowned slightly.
"Yeah, yeah. Whatever." The Irken acted like he didn't care.
"So, did you tell 'er?!" Gir said excitedly.
Zim looked down.
"D'awww! What'd she say?!?"
"Well Gir... she didn't really say anything." Zim lied.
"Well what do you mean?" The tiny robot's eyes looked concerned.
"Just what I said Gir!!! If you aren't going to listen then maybe I shouldn't
tell you anything anymore!" His mood changed quickly.
"But.. Mastaa, I..." Gir's voice saddened.
Zim interupted, "No Gir, no. Just leave me alone."
Zim remembered when Gaz has shouted that at him today and sighed out loud.
He had felt depressed most of the day. Gir realized and went into the kitchen
as Zim layed on the couch, thinking.
He needed to talk to Gaz desperately.
