It was 15 minutes into Dib's break and he found himself running down a crowed street with three bags on each arm. The bags weren't that heavy, it was getting passed all the humans that slowed Dib down.
Dib's eyes sparkled with relief as the McMeaty's sign came into view but by that time the young adult needed to catch his breath.
"Sh-shit...I'm s-sooo late!" Dib gasped as he used his knees as a rest for his arms. The human's heart was beating fast, he was sweating like never before and worst of all, he was worried about Zim.
Dib still had time! In fact, he didn't have to go to work until he wanted today because he was out on errands.
Dib stood up again and ran to McMeaty's, the 20 year old was fond of all the running he did as a boy. It was funny because once again, Dib was running after his one and only alien.
Once Dib reached the restaurant he looked through the windows to see Zim; waiting. Dib then went to the side of the building to enter it. He was frustrated at the amount of door

It was a typical day in the small city of (insert city name here), every human had a life to life and they were living it the way they did.
"ZIM! It's YOUR turn to work the cash register! Get over here!" called Zim's boss. Zim groaned as he was bowling fries into hot grease; it splatting at his fine skin, making him wince every time a bubble popped.
"C-coming!" Zim shouted, dropping the fries as someone else took over the bubbly grease job. Zim was now about 20 years old and working at Mcmeaty's. He was tall and looked more like a 16 year old geek teen than a man. He was hunched over, lanky, out of place and most of all...working at a fast food place, which he hated.
"Zim! You better not fail at this! Take the people's orders, and DON'T bad talk them or you're FIRED!" shouted Zim's boss before he disappeared behind the kitchen to yell at the other people working there. Zim huffed at the cranky old fart.

Zim kept purring out contently towards Dib. He wasn't like a cat of course, because cats couldn't purr and meow at the same time. However, Zim could speak and purr in his throat at the same time.
"How has life been for you since you've moved away? Still in touch with your sister and parent unit?" Zim asked, wanting to get caught up with Dib.
The question threw the human off a bit, he didn't know Zim would really care about that but the black haired boy tried to answer as best as he could.
"Gaz? She's off to college in game design of course. She called me about a week ago so I should call her again soon. My dad...is probably doing the same old shit. I don't really care about him, we don't keep in touch at all. I tried but it gets awkward so I stopped a year ago and he never bothered to call me so he can go fuck contaminated bacterium for all I care." Dib said sourly as he fiddled with a wrapper on the table.
The 20 year old felt like crying since he hated bad mouthing his fat

Zim nodded in understanding. "I must agree on that Dib thing, I'm also scared of sex...For personal reasons, but...I do want to have it at some point." Zim said with a blush. He wanted sex, he wanted to know what it felt like...but that damn piece of skin was blocking his way. He was too scared it would hurt and bleed.
Dib almost chocked on his own air supply. 'Zim hasn't!? He didn't do it yet!?' Dib screamed in confusion in his head, this whole time, the human swore Zim might have had sex already. But when Zim said he wanted to, Dib's heart skipped a beat. Dib wanted to have sex too and he felt more comfortable knowing that Zim was scared of sex but wanted it too. The 20 year old felt less like a loser.
"Sorry for the touchy subject, I know how it makes you humans feel." Zim said, staring at Dib with content eyes. He wondered if Dib would ever have feelings for him romantically. Ever wanted to kiss him, or maybe have sex with him. But Zim didn't care about sex...he would actually just

After more scary pop-ups and flinches from the alien, the movie ended as it showed the credits. Zim sighed and stood up, stretching his arms out and groaning but he smiled satisfied and quite goofy as well.
"Mmm...That was a great movie." Zim said, arms over his head as he heard his back pop quite loudly. Dib stretched as well with a yawn. The movie was good but watching with Zim was sooo much better.
"Hope you didn't mind me laying all over you...it's just me trying to get in your pants. I wasn't scared." Zim joked with his goofy and overly joyful smile.
Dib blushed madly, shifting his weight nervously. He knew it was a joke but for him, it was something he kind of wanted, despite his fear of intimacy. It was different with Zim yet it was so foreign wanting someone so bad.
Zim saw Dib get a bit nervous, shifting on his feet and blushing. The alien sighed and dropped his arms. "Ya know Dib, if my flirting makes you feel uncomfortable, Zim can stop." Zim said, reassuringly.

Zim had left work around 5. He didn't take the alleyways; not wanting to get in a fight, killed, or raped, because now he had something to look forward to in life.
Once Zim got to his apartment, he walked in, unsure of what to do next. Once he walked into his house, he smelled...Hamburgers? Once Zim had smelled himself, he realized it was him. He smelled of work.
Zim didn't want to smell like work when he went out with Dib. But why should it matter? They are friends, just hanging out normally...no reason to get fancy. However, Zim had the need to look his best; but why? It bugged the alien a bit.
Zim shook it off and took a quick shower. Because it was a human shower and it used water, he had to cover his body in paste before going in. His soap also had paste in it. Surprisingly, it left Zim's very clean and soft after.
Zim got dressed in a tight dark purple V-neck shirt and black skinny jeans with red converse. This was Zim's normal wear, but at least he looked well enough for Dib. Ho

Zim purred, standing up and walking over to Dib. "I know I shouldn't do this here...but we are alone and the waitress is in the back." Zim pulled Dib's chair out and sat in his lap. His front facing the human's as Zim wrapped his arms around Dib's neck.
Dib watched Zim in curiosity as the alien got up and began moving his chair. Suddenly the irken's tiny frame was on top of Dib, wrapping his arms around the human. Dib couldn't help the gasp from his lips and when he felt Zim's tongue against his sensitive skin, the human yelped a bit but reminded himself of what he had to do, what he had to be like in order to win!
"Too much Dib? Because I can stop....But of course...I don't wanna." Zim purred, licking Dib's neck teasingly.
Slowly but surely, Dib roamed his hands around Zim's back, keeping him in place. Dib found himself smirking. "I told you I'd be able to handle what you threw at me, even if you throw yourself at me, alien."
Zim had a strong feeling he had just fucked up their friend

In the movie theater it was dark, despite the previews playing. Dib frantically looked for a place to sit with his alien friend, alone but it was difficult with all the people there. It was a fairly new, and good, horror movie so Dib sadly understood why there were so many humans.
Dib wondered if Zim was ok with all these people in one place at once but then he remembered that the alien worked at a fast food restaurant. A good one at that. So the
alien must be used to all these humans...
Dib on the other hand, not so much. In fact the human was beginning to panic a little. He got like this on crowded buses too. Dib didn't want Zim to notice his paranoia but it was hard since the room was so crowded.
The human squeezed Zim's hand tightly as he dragged the alien up the raised seats, trying to get to the top corner. There was a family there in the same row but Dib walked passed them in the row and claimed the very back with a heavy sigh.
Zim blushed when Dib held and squeezed his hand. Ho

Dib probably spent too much time in the restaurant with Zim but the human didn't give a damn! Technically, he had a date with Zim! Even though they were just friends and Zim didn't want to date...a lonely 20 year old could dream.
When Dib entered the building, he went straight to his boss' office to have the recites checked and the black haired male could work on the decorations.
Mr. Buary seemed pleased with the items Dib picked out and approved the recites and let Dib go.
Happy with how this day was going, Dib happily went to work on the decorations. It wasn't like he was behind on anything but he wanted to begin right away so laziness wouldn't be an issue later on.
Dib started with the white and yellow tinsel and placed them where they best suited; desks, door frames, windows and the tables for the party, which were already laid out in the conference room.

Zim caught onto Dib's flirting, after giving him a bit of a confused look for a bit. Zim realized that strawberries were a 'sexual' thing, he had learned somewhat about it on T.V. Zim purred at Dib teasingly. "Oh, I could top that." He purred seductively, tapping his shoulder. He really meant 'I could tap that', another sexual joke he knew. Oh the T.V. was horrible for his mind, and he knew it.
"I think we should get some whip cream and waaarm fudge to drip...all over your sexy body, Dib-Baby." Zim purred, licking at his lips as he leaned into Dib a bit more with half lidded eyes. Zim rolled his tongue out, showing off how long it really was as he curled it up in the air before slithering it back in his mouth. "Not like you wouldn't want this long amazing tongue to slither alll over your body."
Zim loved teasing Dib, and the strange part was...it felt so natural to do so. Flirting and talking a bit dirty to Dib felt normal. How odd? Zim thought to himself. Why was it so natural to him

It was Thursday morning and Dib was brushing his teeth and was about to get dressed in the same attire as usual which was nice but kind of boring after a while.
ib woke up early everyday so he could make breakfast. It wasn't much, just eggs with grilled cheese and a glass of milk; nothing special since Dib wasn't much of a cook. His dinner last night was simply pasta.
The 20 year old could cook but it never tasted amazing but good enough to eat. He did plan to teach himself better recipes at some point, maybe this weekend.
Then Dib remembered that he had to decorate for the party and groaned. Decorating the whole office was going to be a bitch so Dib might as well go to the party. He didn't have to but why would he decorate the entire place and not go to the party? The concept seemed stupid in his opinion. Dib didn't want to go and be surrounded by all these people he knew but still feel alone.
To lighten Dib's mood, he thought about seeing Zim again but it also made him nervous a li

Dib headed to the table where the broken SIR unit lay. It was a sorry sight indeed. It just wasn't Gir; he was such a lively character despite his retardation.
After studying the robot, Dib sat on Zim's couch and patiently waited for the alien to join him.
Zim sat down on the couch with Dib, holding his hand as he looked at GIR. He sighed disappointingly, then looked back at Dib with weak smile.
"So...What do you want to do?" He asked, a bit shyly.
Dib looked at Zim curiously. "Whatever you want to do." he said with a smirk, suddenly the alien was shy, so cute.
Zim blushed. "Heh...well...I have some ideas." He said, leaning into Dib a bit, snuggling into his side and resting his head on his shoulder. "I-I hope I'm not making you uncomfortable."
Dib snuggled up to the alien and hummed lightly to himself. "Of course not, I hope you don't mind just laying like this for a bit..." the human said dreamily, loving the feeling of Zim against him. It was such a wonderful feeling and Dib wanted

Going back to Zim, the human sat playfully on the boy's lap ad planted a forceful kiss on him. "You are my alien now." Dib said with a toothy grin.
Zim smiled holding Dib tightly in his lap. "You fool." He nuzzled into his neck and purred affectionately.
"And actually," Zim began with a small giggle. "I think I caught you for once, because to the looks of things, you don't want to leave." Zim scratched at Dib's back, and planted small gentle kisses to his neck. "I can walk you to the bus stop if you want Diblet...Don't want you to be too tired when you get home." Zim held Dib tightly in a hug, not really wanting him to go.
Dib shivered at the feeling of long, sharp talons caressing his back. "Mmmm...you're right, if I had a set of work clothes here, I'd be in bed with you already." the black haired boy laughed but then blushed. "Cuddling though...not...not like...you know...yeah..."

Dib woke up the next day feeling groggy as usual. He got out of bed, washed his face in an attempt to wake himself up and made pancakes for himself. He had time to spare and wished he had Zim's phone number since the alien was probably up by now...but that reminded the human that he told Zim he'd ask his dad for help with Gir.
The black haired male nervously looked at the phone, debating whether he should call now or not. Now was better than later and Membrane would be up at this time. Dib swore he father never slept.
And to be honest...Dib missed his dad...so the male picked up the phone and dialed his old home phone number, praying the man would pick up.
"Hello?" came Membrane's strong voice.
"Hi, dad." Dib said nervously.

Three hours had gone by and Dib wished he had another coffee. The one from McMeaty's was actually really good, perhaps not as good as the little cafe's coffee, but coffee was coffee so it didn't matter to Dib. Although he was more motivated to go buy a coffee, or any food for that matter, at McMeaty's because Zim worked there.
Oddly enough, the McMeaty's uniform really suited Zim. Dib didn't know much about colours but the deep blue matched nicely with the alien's skin. Dib wondered if anyone asked Zim about his skin but Dib guessed they probably didn't.
Dib had to go print off a few things and send them in to his boss to look at so the human printed what he needed and got up to take it to his boss.
On the way, Dib bumped into another worker; Larren. She gave Dib a cute little smile as she walked by and Dib tried to smile back. Larren was in about her 40s and very hard working. She had morals and she was smart so Dib liked her.

"You're late." he said in a more serious voice. Dib knew the other male was just trying to 'scare' him.

Mitchel sat up and patted the younger adult's back three times as a friendly gesture. "Whatever you say, dibby boy."

Dib was always on his mind. Zim wondered where he was in life, why he never saw him anymore, and why Zim was alone. After high school and Dib never returning to him, Zim began to hate his life.
