Zim tried not to feel anxious as he continued to wash himself.
"Oh, shut up, Zim! You know very well I asked you to keep a shower running for me before you left the gym! How was I supposed to know you were still using it?! Besides, I thought you hated water! So why haven't you gone home yet?!" Dib snapped right back at the other, peeking out from behind the curtain of his shower to have a look around, contemplating ducking behind various shower curtains until he could reach the towels on the other end of the room.
Chancing a quick glance over at the shower Zim was still standing behind, he took a deep breath before darting out to make a quick dash for the shower curtain closest to his own. He then did the same with the next one and then the next one, drawing ever closer to his prize. When he was about two showers away from where he could see the folded up towels however, he felt his foot slipping against the wet tile floor as he made another mad dash for one of the curtains.

Dib could feel the other's fake eyes following him, watching his every move as he packed up the last of the gym volley balls into there bags, and he couldn't help but wonder why. Why was it that fate was so cruel towards him? Ever since he'd first entered high-school, it seemed every teacher he came into contact with was drawn towards pairing him up with his worst enemy, as he currently was right now. Not that it really mattered when the green menace just sat back and watched.
"You know, you COULD help me with some of this, you jerk." he said, picking up the first bag of volley balls to move them over towards the equipment room.
After an intense gym period in the close to freezing-cold basketball court, their gym teacher had assigned THEM to pack up all the equipment and move it back before heading home. A few weeks shy of the winter break, Dib just wanted to get out of the school's required gym clo

Dib rolled his eyes. Of course Zim would be going off again. This time was no different to the last, except instead of rambling on about the cafeteria food giving him blisters, he was directly addressing the cafeteria drone herself. She ignored him of course, barely casting an eye towards the green 'child' directly in front of her, let alone every other student in the cafeteria for that matter.
How could they not see? Even after a two years of the same nonsense. Dib had at least expected something to change. But no. He was still picked on. Still known as the crazy kid with no friends. The paranormal freak.
Putting his hand to his chin, Dib slowly ate his cafeteria food, trying to blot out the noise of Zim's raspy voice, but it was no good. He could still hear it ringing throughout his head. He almost envied how the other students could block Zim out so easily. He just wouldn't shut up.
The pounding sensation emerging on the right side of his temple didn't help either. The more Zim rant

Leading Dib back to the base, confused as to why it was so quiet but figuring Dib was just being sentimental about something, Zim merely let the others silence slide. "Well, here we are...Uhh...Should I have the computer make you a room? Or would you like to bunk with me?" he asked, looking at Dib questioningly.
Dib finally looked up at Zim at the question. "Ummm...Wh-Whatever you're more comfortable with..." he then looked away to the ground again.
Zim could only look at Dib confused. "Okay...What's wrong now?" he looked worried.
Dib took a few steps back away from the other. "N-Nothing..." he lied.
Zim was really lost now. "Wh-What's wrong?" he asked again, reaching out a little for Dib but pulling back at the last second, sighing and turning towards the house to walk inside, head down. "You can have my room..." he said in a low voice.
Dib took a few more steps away from the door. "M-Maybe I should leave..." he felt uncomfortable now that he was at Zim's base.
"What? NO!" Zim grabbed

Hearing Red's words, not caring that he was Tallest when it came to Dib, Zim interjected before the other could say anymore. "SHUT UP!" he practically snapped at his leader, though it was already too late.
Having heard the comment, Dib's eyes snapped back open at Red's words.
"Dib? You mean that human you had with you the last time you were here? A-And he's pregnant?! W-Wait a minute. How can he be pregnant if you're both different species?" Purple asked, pointing back and forth between Zim and Dib.
Arms wrapped around his abdomen, Dib didn't even wait around for Zim to respond to that question as he turned to leave the room a second time. "I-I'm going to be sick..." he said, sniffling as he went to head for the bathroom.
"Dib..." Zim watched him go,

His antennae falling back to press against his head, Dib narrowed his eyes on Zim even more. "That's not funny, Zim!" he exclaimed, slamming his hands down on the kitchen table.
Zim shrank down into his chair as far as he could. "Haha." he laughed uneasily then swallowed. "R-Right. Not funny." he said more to himself than to Dib.
Hearing the other still laughing, Dib, without thinking, threw his plate of food at Zim. The Irken ducked out of the way just in time to avoid the plate as it crashed against the side of the wall and broke into pieces.
Breathing heavily, Dib seemed to snap out of his sudden rage when he heard the sound of the glass breaking, causing him to blink wide eyes open, his antennae perking. "H-Huh?" he looked around confused, first at Zim, who was hiding behind his chair, then at the broken pieces of glass laying strewn among a pile of food on t

Worried Dib would hurt himself or the smeets, Zim's eyes widened. "CUT IT OUT!" he exclaimed.
Panting heavily at this point, Dib only continued to throw himself against the cage door despite how tired he was growing. "Not until you let me out!" he screamed, his thrusts becoming weaker and weaker with every passing second. But before he even realized it, he was on his knees, kneeling by the door to the cage, a flood of tears streaming down his face. He was hurting, but he couldn't put his finger on a reason why.
Zim gasped. 'Oh, Dib.' he kneeled down and stroked his cheek, unable to help himself. "Are you okay?" he asked.
Slapping the Irken's hand away, Dib instantly pulled away from the touch. "Don't touch me!" he hissed out, antennae pressed as far back against his head as possible. "Don't touch me..." he said in a stern voice as he shook where he sat, glaring at the Irken. "It hurts

Zim sighed. "Maybe..." he looked away. "Maybe we just weren't really supposed to be together, Dib..." he said, his voice just barely that of a whisper.
Antennae perking suddenly, Dib snapped his head up to stare at Zim with wide, tearful eyes when he said that. Then, without any warning at all, he pulled away from the other, his antennae drooping as he took a few steps back before turning to head for the elevator, a complete wreck now.
"D-Dib?" Zim sighed heavily and finally gave up, worn out from trying so hard. Holding his head in his hands, he curled up on the spot. "I just don't know what to do..." he said to the quiet room.
Shakily making it to the elevator, Dib collapsed onto his knees inside it and broke down as it brought him up to the house level of the base. Upon coming to a halt, he picked himself up and made his way over to the couch in the living room, looking back behind himsel

Scooping Dib up bridal style, Zim smiled and carried him upstairs. "Anything specific you want?" he asked.
Antennae still drooping, Dib could only shrug loosely. "Sugar..." he spoke, feeling as though he hadn't had anything sweet to eat in days. He just felt like sprinkling sugar over everything edible in the fridge.
Zim smiled and nuzzled him. "Okay, anything UNDER that sugar?" he asked with a laugh.
"Whatever you have left over in the fridge, I guess...I don't really care." Dib said as he let his eyelids slip closed to rest against Zim tiredly.
As they went up in the elevator to get food, Zim nuzzled him gently. "I'd say we have a lot of leftovers...That is, if Gir hasn't done anything with them yet..." he laughed.
Opening his eyes, Dib looked back up at Zim. "I'll eat whatever you have...These smeets aren't exactly too picky at the moment. They're mostly just making me hungry for ANYTHING really..." he said.
Zim smiled. "Okay. How about that left over Chinese take-out?"

Sweat beading at the top of his forehead as Dib curled himself up the best he could in Zim's lap, Dib swallowed thickly, the only thing he could think of to do in that moment being to try and will himself without any drugs into as deep a sleep as possible until it was all over. He clutched Zim's shirt tightly, closing his eyes and taking deep, slow breaths.
"Well...We'd better go!" Purple said quickly before glaring at Red. "I have some THINGS to discuss with Red here." he said, Red swallowing nervously as the transmission was cut.
Realizing that Dib was trying to relax, Zim picked him up and decided to help him by taking a seat on the couch out in the living room. "Is it okay if we stay here for a while?" he asked, looking up when both Gaz and Tak exited the room where the transmission had just been cut.

Squeezing Dib's hand back as the screen connected to the Massive's communication signal, Zim could only shake his head slowly at the others question. "I hope not..." he sighed, really not knowing how the Tallests would react to the news.
"Wha- ZIM?!" Tallest Red glared at Tak when the first sight to meet his eyes on the screen was Zim. "Why is he still alive?!" he pointed accusingly at Zim.
"Well, my Tallest. If I killed him, I would be breaking the law."
"Law?! What law?! The only law you should be worried about breaking is MY law! And my law is for you to kill Zim!"
His antennae shuddering and drooping, Dib could only shrink back behind Zim a bit at Red's words as he squeezed the others hand even tighter, truly scared now for Zim's life and that he

Refusing to answer Dib's question, Zim merely shook his head. "You win, Dib. You should be happy." he said, turning to head upstairs and get Dib something to eat.
Rather than feeling happy, however, Dib felt rather sick to his stomach as all he could do was sit there in a daze. This wasn't right. It didn't feel anything like a real win for him. It wasn't like he had the upper hand at the moment or was the one chasing Zim away from Earth. On the contrary, he was the one who was locked up here. But even so, he felt as though he were being abandoned on a completely alien planet himself.
Zim returned moments later, a large plate of food in hand. "Here, you'll need to eat..." he said.
A dazed look on his face, Dib merely sat there with his knees up to his chest. "I'm not hungry..." he said in an eerily low voice. He didn't want to eat. He didn't want to sleep, talk, or even look at Zim when he ca

A couple of hours passed, one right after the other, until finally Dib started to show the first signs of waking back up, though this time for good.
"Mmm...Zim?" he murmured before blinking his eyes open to look around the room.
To his surprise, said Irken was nowhere to be found. He had gone upstairs while Dib was sleeping but hadn't made it back before he woke up.
So, sitting up in bed slowly when he realized Zim wasn't in the bed with him, Dib looked about the room confusedly. "Zim?" he asked again, unsure whether he should get up and look for the other or stay put. Squeezing his legs together somewhat uncomfortably, he squirmed about in the covers a bit as the urge to pee hit him all over again, reminding him that he had needed to go the last time he had woken up.

Dib’s hurried pace soon slowed to a steady walk as he got closer to Zim’s base. He delayed getting there as he was both afraid and nervous of what he may find here. He actually started to second guess if this was the best thing to do, but he arrived before he knew it. Once it were visible across the road from him, Dib stopped and stared at it for a short time. He drew in a deep breath, whispering unsure words of encouragement before starting closer towards it.
Zim's base looked pretty similar on the outside, except for where his gnomes keeping his house protected had been destroyed. Though, it did seem to have an eerie aura around it which was something that hadn’t been present in the past.
Dib had made it to the front door now, staring upon it as if there were something fairly interesting about it. In reality, he was just preparing himself for what he was sure would be a quite shocking sight. Finally, he pushed the door open and flicked on the lights wi

After several minutes of just staring at the computer in complete terror, Dib turned to the platform and headed towards it. He shut off the lights on his way out, the computer’s bright monitor illuminating the room now. His head turned to look back at it, nodding once as if to thank it before stepping onto the plate in front of him. The platform rose again for him to take him back upstairs into the wreckage. Now he had an answer as to what happened and why Zim was behaving like he was. The better question was, would he regret seeing that though; seeing the complete self-destruction of his now former worst enemy and now current worst nightmare?
The thing that made seeing that video so traumatizing was that he had actually grown to some what care about Zim. Yes, they were enemies both out to stop each other at every turn, but before Zim, he didn’t have a reason to get up every day and go to school. Zim was everything he had always wanted; an alien that had found

Resolve came in the form of first sunlight beaming through the shattered hole that was at one point a window. It immediately melted away the shadows and extinguished the coolness that the night had brought. Everything was completely visible now and revealed to the paranoid human.
However, even after the sun had come up, Dib took a while to convince himself that there wasn't actually anything there, and that it had all just been a crazy delusion in his head. After several more minutes of watching everything around him, he had finally convinced himself that he was alone now, which actually relaxed him and made him realize how tired he actually was. It was too late to try and sleep now though since he had to get ready for another dreadful day of school.
He didn't try too hard, though, as he decided to stay in the bloodied and torn cloths from the night before and only ran his hands over his hair in an attempt to smooth it out. He was far too tired and stressed to be concerned

Upon arriving home on that quiet, eerie night, Dib was relieved to find that no insane Irken had followed him. He was alone now, and he had the feeling he would have a peaceful night in contrast to the others he had experienced.
As Dib had made his way into the house and up to his room, the lingering smell of day old blood hit him. It wasn’t quite as harsh and foul as the pile of junk found in Zim’s closet. However, it was enough to make the boy groan in both agony and nausea, but the smell didn’t seem to stop him from hobbling to his bed and allowing himself to collapse upon it.
At least he was safe for now, and tonight would be one of the only nights open for him to sleep without much worry. Zim was still too weak to come for him, and the computer was keeping him indoors for tonight.
As Dib lay on his bed with his eyes pealed wide open, he felt himself almost grow drowsy as time proceeded. He even fell into a deep and much needed sleep within fifteen

Hearing his voice through the phone was like an echo of my dream. I could feel my face getting flustered. I took a deep breath, waiting for him to respond. I gulped.
"Yes, it's Zim. Listen pig-stink, I need you to do something for me." He was talking like he called all the time! I felt myself getting a little irritated. Almost like all the aggression I had from our past fights were beginning to rumble together in my head, like an earthquake that gradually builds up.
"Hold on a damn second, Zim!" I felt myself getting a little loud so I looked around real quick around my cubicle. Not only had no one seemed to have heard me, it looked like almost everyone had left for lunch. "Just what the hell are you calling me for? And what gives you the right to give me that tone? What the hell's going-" I was cut off by the robot screaming somewhere off into the background. Zim sighed into the phone agitatedly. I could picture him in my head squeezing two of his fingers on the brid
