'IB' - Chapter Five
As Dib stood outside of his home, he couldn't help the overwhelming loneliness that washed over him. After the neighbours reaction, he highly doubted anyone would take him seriously. Not like they had taken him seriously before anyway.
On top of the extreme aloneness, the boy was feeling a massive amount of paranoia. His house had proven to be just as dangerous a place to be now, and after seeing how easily and quickly Zim could infiltrate it, he realized he would never feel at peace inside of it. He would always be looking around himself, checking to make sure he was truly alone.
Dib took only small, slow steps towards the house now, his eyes flicking everywhere as he scanned for any threats. He was quite jumpy now though, so when a small leaf flew by him he jumped backwards a step and let out a high pitched scream. He began to breathe rapidly until realizing it was just a leaf before taking a deep breath and staring forward again, his eyes continuing to scan his environm

Zim couldn't wait to go to this sleepover. Exciting! He had told Gir he was coming, and Gir jumped with glee.
Dib had given a note to Zim listing everything that he needed to bring to the sleepover, after skool.
1. Sleeping bag.
3. Night goggles
6. Silver bullet
7. Small sleeping bag for Gir
Zim had looked up before what a sleeping bag was and he now knew what it is used for. He had called the computer and told it to make two sleeping bags during skool.
Now, at home, he packed what was needed. He put the bullet, goggles, stake, and radio in his PAK. He put the Garlic in a bag and put it in his PAK. Then asked the computer where the sleeping bags were.
The computer dropped the two perfectly made sleeping bags. One was blue like Gir's eyes, with a black Irken symbol on the front and the other, the one for Zim, was red and had the Irken symbol on the front. Zim grabbed the bags and went to the elevator. He went down to his room and hurried and got a pair

Zim thought about what he read. He re-read it over and over again in his mind. 'Maybe this is why I shouldn't have friends But Gaz never hurt me I guess it's not all bad.' Zim thinks to himself. Zim did, in fact, hear the 'Wait!' Dib shouted, but he ignored him. Zim was on the couch and Gir was asleep in his lap. It has been an hour since he left and Dib has called him repeatedly since he left. Zim had also got word that skool was to end on Tuesday, not Friday; so Zim only had two days until he leaves for his mission.
'I guess I'm going to skip skool tomorrow. I really don't want to see Dib.' Zim decided. He then went to sleep, and went through dreams; not to wake until Tuesday morning...
Dib was at home and attempting to call Zim again. "Hello! This is the MIGHTY ZIM! I'm not home right now, filthy meat bag! So leave a message and maybe I won't totally ignore you!" Beeep!!!
Voice mail again. Dib then stopped trying to call; knowing it was a bitter failure to try. 'I sh

Dib walked straight to his room when he got home, to cover up all the cameras, hand cuffs and Alien hurting devices he had stored there. He didn't want to scare Zim away. Why? He still didn't know, he just figured Zim would leave if he saw the lasers, choking devices, many hand cuffs, plans to stop Zim's plans and spying equipment.
When he was done throwing the junk in his closet, under his bad, in his drawers and anywhere else the stuff could fit, he went down stairs to make him and Gaz afternoon snacks; he didn't want Zim to see him eat, considering Zim doesn't eat.
Zim entered his base, only to be crashed down by a flying Gir.
"MASTER!!! I MISSSSED YOU!!! Did you miss MEEE?!?!"
"Get off Gir!" Zim pushed the robot off. Gir just bounced off happily to the kitchen.
Zim walked over to the couched and sat, down. "Gir! Did My Tallest call while I was at skool today?"
"YES! Wait a minute . NO!" the robot bounded in with a block of cheese and sat down by Zim. He pulled a cheese grader

Dib woke up to the faint sound of sweet soft music. The movie was over and Gir was fast asleep, but Zim and Gaz were nowhere to be seen.
Where the heck are they?! He thought to himself as he got up, making sure not to wake up Gir, and looking around the tent. He looked all around the large tent and outside of it as well, but found no sign of the two. The music still played somewhere in the forest and it soothed Dib; as if he'd heard it before. Wait a minute! Music?! He dashed back inside of the tent. He looked around and couldn't find his sisters instruments. I knew I heard this music before! They played it before while I was asleep!!
He dashed outside in search of the source of the music. He was headed toward the lake as the music grew louder with each step he took. Soon he came to a clearing where he saw many animals; some sleeping, some swaying to the music. He looked where the animals looked too and saw his sister playing her violin with Zim playing Gaz's viol

"OKIE DOKIE!!" Gir smiles bigger and snuggles into her leg and falling soundly asleep.
Gaz smiles at the sight and grabs piece of torn paper and a small black pen and begins writing.
I am taking Gir to Zims base to do some cleaning. Gir says he's made another mess and that there are more 'scary spiders'. I have to clean them out so he's not scared to be there.
She leaves the paper on the dining table and bundles the sleeping Gir into her arms; he instantly snuggles into her small forming chest and she blushes. She pets his ears down and walks to the front door. She gets out her keys after shutting it behind her and locks it tight. She walks down the steps going towards the small, alien, but familiar house.
She walks up to the large purple door and smiles, taking her key

Dib and Gretchen have been considered a couple since the first date as well and she seemed to make Dib very happy. She had made it clear to Dib that she dislikes Zim very much, but Dib has stopped trying to talk to her about him. Dib always had this weird feeling about her though, sense the very beginning.
Skool was only two days away and Dib wasn't looking forward to it. Sure the teasing, scolding and death threats have stopped, but the thought of going to skool without Zim scared Dib nearly to death.
Dib decided to take a risk and talk to Gretchen about his fear, so he called her up and invited her out to the park. He goes

Zim woke up refreshed and happy for the first time since the news of the mission was spread to him. He got out of his sleeping bag and looked around. The others were still asleep, so he decided to get his stuff back to his house before they woke. He rolled up his sleeping bag and got dressed in a corner. He got his supplies he brought and woke up Gir.
"Yes, master?" Gir asked sleepily. Gir had changed positions in the night and was now on top of the TV.
"I need you to help me bring our stuff back to the house really fast, ok?" Gir nodded. He went and started picking up his and Zim's stuff and putting it in his head. Zim picked up some things and put them in his PAK. "Let's go," Zim told Gir when they had everything that was theirs. They walked outside and Zim got on Gir's back and the two flew off to Zim's house.
When they got there Zim put everything back and checked his messages. "Oh no!" Zim shouted. This alarmed Gir, so he turned to Zim confused. "The Tallest called me while I was

Waking up was easy for Dib today, for he had no bad dreams last night.
I wonder why I haven't had a bad dream tonight, he thought to himself. I did dream though I like these dreams better though.
He did, in fact, have dreams, plenty of them. None bad, all good; and all about the time he spent with Zim last night. He dreamed of the games, of the way Zim stood up to Gaz, even if he couldn't. He dreamt of things that never happened, or at least not to him. He dreamt of Zim stealing something called Chaco Tacos from Crazy Taco at night in a ninja suit. He dreamt of Gir hugging Zim when he got home and Zim hugging back and the delicious chocolate popcorn Zim ate on the couch; the smell, taste and feel it gave Zim in his mouth. He was never there, but he dreamt of all the good things that happened to Zim the night before.
Before Zim got his old, tired, mature look, before the bags under Zim's eyes appeared. Before he went down into the room to think of the girls before bed, before the

"Gir I am home!" Zim called, shutting the door to his base behind him.
A Squeal came from the couch and before Zim could do anything Gir came flying at him with Taco pieces on his face. He hugged him fiercely and didn't give notice to the bag Zim currently held.
With an "Oof," Zim heaved back when Gir hit him, but made no move to stop him or get free of the hug that was killing his squeedily spooch. After a second he tried to struggle free, but he knew it was a losing battle and gave into the hug. Before he would never have even thought of hugging anybody, much less Gir, but thoughts of the approaching mission had made him somewhat soft on the little creature. And Dib And Gaz.
The tunes from the TV played the Bloaty's Pizza Hog song. After a moment of hugging the robot, Zim grew impatient. He had gone by Crazy Taco and got something for Gir. Something that hasn't even came out yet, and wouldn't for another 3 months; the time of which Zim would be long gone.

Zim and Dib ran into the tent, huffing and puffing. Dib stopped short when he saw Gaz and Gir asleep. He nudged Zim with an elbow and Zim looked up to see them. Dib was shocked to see Zim only smile softly and gaze upon the two with sorrow.
Dib looked back at Gaz and Gir, and he was sure that if Gaz woke up she would break the poor robot and kill both Zim and Dib for seeing them asleep like that, but with everything that has happened; he didn't know what to think. He watched as Zim went over to them and softly picked up Gir and laid him inside Gir's sleeping bag.
Zim then walked over to Dib. "Don't worry about them. I'm sure Gir went over there after Gaz fell asleep. At least now she won't kill anyone." Dib nodded in agreement. He stopped and held his neck as a stabbing pain shot through his body. He then realized that they were both still beat up from the fight.
"M-m-a-a-a " Dib's voice cracked and his throat throbbed; he didn't know he was actually hurt so bad, because Zim had t

Everything is on fire. The skool, the buildings, my house . The world .
I'm standing in the street watching the chaos. A half-dead man crawls towards me. He looks up and reaches to me. "Help me!" he pleads. I would, but he is already dead at my feet. I back away.
I tried, I really did. But I guess it wasn't enough. This is all Zim's fault! He did this! I tried to stop him, I always have, but the world thought I was crazy! They called me insane! Now they believe me and the world is ruled by Zim and the Irken race.
I fall to my knees and cry out in pain. The blood seeps down my back, from the wound Zim created.
"You should have left, Dib. Now you are dead!" Zim cackles. "Mwah hahahahahahahahahaha!"
Dib wakes up scared and sweat staining the bed. He searches in the dark to find his glasses. When he does he checks the time. 6 o'clock. He should be getting up now anyways, so he goes downstairs to get some cereal.

It has been two weeks since the friendship was made official. And every night Dib would dream off all the good things that would happen to Zim but never the bad.
He dreamt of the good times they had together, and what Zim eats and all the silent hugs Zim has with Gir. He dreams of the times when Zim goes out to steal those Chaco Tacos for Gir. He dreams of the times when Zim only fells good inside and he feels these good, warm, fuzzy feelings to.
Zim often talks to Gir, about past times and things that have happened before Gir and Zim met and Dib dreamt about these conversations. Almost all of them He is still oblivious to Zim leaving, or the mission, or the girls in which Zim has to save.
Dib does, in fact, know of Zim's Brother Dax, dead sister Zeema, his Parent-units, family-unit, the Tallest and many other things of his life. But anything to do with the mission or the girls is, for some reason, blocked.

Rouge smirked. "Don't be so cold to Tails. He's the one who's gonna be giving you your debriefing."

It was a few minute after Zim and Dib left and Gaz was sure they were gone. Gir was still latched onto her stomach and she just looked at him lovingly.
"Gazzems? Do you want a Chaco Taco?!" Gir looked up at her.
Gaz had heard a lot about Chaco Tacos from Zim, but she'd never tasted one. "OK."
Gir got all excited and let go of Gaz. He leapt up and opened his head. He grabbed out two Chaco Tacos and handed one to her. Then he sat down and started to eat his. Gaz looked at hers with slight curiosity and took a bite. It was chocolaty, with a nut-creamy texture to it. The waffle shell was tough, but easy to chomp through. She sighed with delight and took another bite.
They ate in silence. When they were finished Gaz went to the tent door and looked back. "Do you want to come?" She asked.
"Yes!" Gir leapt up and ran to her. He hugged her and it almost knocked her down. "Were is we goin'?" he asked.

He trusted Gaz of course! But what if she told Dib about the Girls or the mission? Stop thinking like that! Gaz is my friend! She won't do that to me would she? NO! She wouldn't! She just proved her loyalty when she didn't kill me when I kissed her. Wait a minute "Oh my Tallest!" He shouted aloud.
"What? What is it Zim?!" Gaz looked concerned.

"Well, to tell you the truth, I don't think we'll find a Vampire out here anywhere. But since it's," Dib looked at his watch, "9:15, we should be hearing a howl soon and we trace it from there. Right now we look around for evidence that a werewolf was aver here."

I'm currently sitting in the lobby of the other division after arriving not that long ago. It seems that we travelled for most of the day and night yesterday, but I guess I must have fallen asleep... It's pretty early in the morning so I don't have that much to say, other than the fact that I think we're only resting up here before continuing back to the London division. It's quite nice here I suppose, almost better than our own place since it looks so big and clean... there's a lot less shouting and crying too and everyone seems surprisingly happy...

Well diary, it's 6 a.m. and I decided today that the first thing I should do is write an apology letter to Ronald and Alan and say sorry for my unacceptable behaviour (although it was mostly Ronald's fault anyway). I'm glad it's the weekend today because I have a feeling this could take a while... I also decided today that I might write a letter to William and finally explain why I act so weird even though I'm actually straight. I have a feeling that he might appreciate my apology for my annoying behaviour over the years and if he knows that I'm not actually gay, he might see me as an equal rather than an annoying idiot.
I thought it best to start with Ronald's letter so I'll plan my draft here before I write it up properly...

You remember how I met Loretta, yes? She was a plumber, came to fix my heating after it had broken down (I only today realised how incredibly suspicious and odd this was...). Anyway, the point is that I had completely forgotten about this until something happened today that not only reminded me of her so called 'profession' but made me wish I had just let the water cold.
It happened around mid afternoon today.
