Nodding his head as though to confirm his own words, Zim continued, feeling just a tad bit worried himself that Dib couldn't remember passing out on him. "Yep. You did. So I lifted you onto the bed...But seeing as you're okay now...Ummm..." He looked off to the side and mumbled quietly. "Mmm...Maybe you should take the medicine? In case something happens again?" he suggested, wanting nothing more than for Dib to get better already.
"Oh..." Dib closed his eyes and pressed himself close to Zim, letting out another tired yawn.
Giving his hair one last stroke and looking over at him, Zim sighed, tempted to cuddle up to him but shaking his head quickly and grabbing the medicine from the side table, holding it in front of Dib and waving it in front of his face a little, gesturing for him to take it. "Mmmmm?" He sounded out, trying to coax the other into taking it now.
Blinking his eyes open to stare at the bottle for a few moments, Dib moved his hand up a bit as though to take it but dropped

Finally managing to get his coughing somewhat under control for the time being, Dib gasped for air as his hands were now covered in blood and everything hurt thanks to his fever, which had grown even worse than it'd been before. "Z-Zim...I can't move..." He said once he had settled some.
Grabbing some tissue from the side, Zim's eyes grew wide at seeing all the blood before he very carefully took his hand to gently wipe it away. Doing his best not to hurt him in the process, he then looked down at Dib with even more worry than before. "Dib, I'm taking you to a hospital...Right now." He said, getting up to gather a few of his things before leaving.
Eyes snapping wide open at those words, Dib followed Zim's movements with his eyes, watching him as he grabbed his disguise and hurried over to his closet to grab him a clean pair of pajamas just to return and carefully dress him in them before scooping him and the covers around him up into his arms, causing him to let out a pained scream bef

Nodding dazedly when the nurse asked him for his father's contact information, Dib gave her the number for his father's lab as well as his home number in case he wasn't there. "I-I can't guarantee you'll be able to get a hold of him. He's really busy and doesn't always answer the phone." He said before she left to attempt contacting him.
"Well, don't worry too much about it. We'll do whatever we can to get a hold of him." The nurse smiled before leaving the room to go and call Dib's father.
Frowning a bit, Zim watched her leave the room before turning back to Dib again. "Why do they have to call your dad anyway? Shouldn't they be more concerned about starting your treatment?" He looked down at the bed and slid a hand over one of Dib's hands, entwining his fingers with Dib's and sighing.
His blush slowly dying down, Dib leaned up against Zim a bit. "Well, it's not every day they get a patient my age coming into the emergency room without a parent accompanying them." He sighed. "But I wi

As Dib's struggling to get away got worse and worse by the second, Zim had to hold onto him even tighter to ensure he wouldn't hurt himself in his current state of mind. "Dib, stop it! I'm not going to hurt you!" He exclaimed, still gripping him tightly before his voice became a bit softer. "I'd never let anyone hurt you...Please, Dib. Enough of this." He then tried to calm him so the nurse's presence there wouldn't set him off again when she returned.
His efforts to get away lessening with each passing minute as he panted out tiredly in the quiet room, Dib struggled for a few minutes longer before finally beginning to grow tired, tears streaming down his cheeks from how worn out he was now. "Please...I just want to go home...Please, let me go...You're hurting me..." He jerked his body about a few more times in one last attempt to get away before finally becoming still in the other's arms, hugging himself and breaking down even more.
Using this opportunity to quickly turn Dib around an

Jolting when Dib fell off the other end of the hospital bed, Zim stared down at him with fear as well. "Dib...I don't know what's going on here, but whatever happened, I'm sorry!" he moved nearer to Dib, only to make him shuffle away more.
Walking back in with the doctor, the nurse gasped at seeing Dib on the floor before running over to help him and looking up at Zim sternly. "I suggest you leave." She said, not trusting the other to stay alone with Dib any longer.
Still a bit shaken by the situation, Dib's eyes grew even wider at those words. "N-No!" He looked up at the nurse pleadingly. "Please! He fell asleep, had a bad dream, and accidentally knocked me off of the bed!" He said quickly, still not wanting Zim to leave him despite everything that had just happened.
Carefully helping the nurse put Dib back on the bed, the doctor examined him.
Still looking the least bit impressed, the nurse turned to Zim. "Is this true?" She asked, not so sure whether she believed Dib or not.

Smile widening at Dib's reaction to his kiss, Zim ran his hand over Dib's hair and planted a small lick to his forehead. Wrapping his arm back around him, he then nuzzled the side of his face.
Finally letting his hand fall away from his lips, Dib sighed out contently and closed his eyes, the feel of Zim's cool skin pressed to his warm skin a nice relief.
Running a hand on his back soothingly, Zim continued to slowly nuzzle against him, happy now that Dib was comfortable.
Bringing his legs up, Dib curled in on himself a bit. "Mmm...Can we just...stay like this for the rest of the night?" He asked, not wanting to move away.
"Mmhmm." Zim nodded against him comfortably, nuzzling one last little peck to his forehead before cuddling him closely again. "When all this is over...and you get better again...let's go to outer space in the voot..." He said, wanting nothing more than to just take Dib far away from Earth and all the people who had ever made fun of him growing up.
Opening his eyes, Di

Still fairly upset despite Zim's words to him, Dib shook his head, not so sure he could believe the Irken. "I can't believe that! Because...Because...You know that your being here is the only reason for me agreeing to come here in the first place! And you're the one thing keeping me from getting up out of this bed and leaving to go home! So it IS my entire fault for putting you through all of this!" He exclaimed, breaking down all over again.
Again, Zim frowned. "Lies, nothing of this is your fault...Zim doesn't do anything for anyone unless Zim WANTS to do it. You think I'd rather not be here with you right now?" He hugged Dib to himself and lightly nuzzled the side of his face to calm him before speaking softly. "I want...to protect you...And I've never wanted to do that for anyone else, so...don't be sorry about anything, Dib." He said, planting a small kiss to his forehead.
Breathing still shaky, Dib closed his eyes at the gentle kiss. "E-Even if I just continue to get worse? Y-You

Just continuing to play her game despite Zim's obvious disapproval of her lack of concern, Gaz merely shrugged at his words, knowing already that Dib never would have agreed to go to the hospital, even if she had shown concern towards him about his current illness. "And exactly WHEN did you two become best of friends? Was it before or after having sex? Because I could have sworn you were still enemies up until just a few days ago." She said, not even missing a beat as she continued playing on her Game Slave 2.
Starting to blush again, Zim's eyes grew wide at those words. "How did-" He frowned and muttered something angrily, folding his arms.
Gaz smirked at Zim's reaction. "Heh...I knew it...So, who's on top and who's on bottom?" She asked jokingly, her smirk growing.
Shivering and letting out a short-lived whine at the fact that he couldn't locate the Irken anywhere near him, Dib shifted in his sleep suddenly. "Mmmm...Zim..." He murmured, almost as if on cue to answer Gaz's question.

Smiling when Dib agreed to let him call in the nurse, Zim pet back a bit of his hair before turning to look back over towards Gaz and Gir. "Great...Um...Could someone press the button then?" He asked, not wanting to pull away from Dib while he was still feeling so cold.
"I do iiit!" Gir jabbed a hand on the button repeatedly. "Woo!" He squealed excitedly, enjoying this far too much.
Zim smacked himself in the forehead at Gir's stupidity.
Meanwhile, the nurse came running into the room in a panic. "What is it?! What's wrong?!" She looked around just to notice that they were all alright and Gir was still standing there on the bed, hitting the call button repeatedly. "Ummm...Is there an actual reason I was called in here?" She asked as she glared over at the disguised SIR unit.
"Gir, stop hitting that thing already!"
"OKAY!" Gir stopped and saluted.
"Ahem...Dib's feeling really cold all of a sudden."
Walking up to Dib, the nurse placed a hand on his forehead. "Hmmm...He's still feverish.
