The Locker Room - Ch 2
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

Finding offense in the human's stubbornness, Zim could only scoff at Dib's words to him.
"FINE!" he retorted. "HELP YOURSELF FOR ALL I CARE!"
He returned Dib's glare with a glare of his own before turning and storming out of the shower block, back into the boys' change room.
Lips up-curled into a snarl, he approached his locker and threw open the door violently to retrieve his standard issue uniform, not even bothering to go into a stall to pull back on his garments. He just ripped off the towel and shoved his pants and shirt on, hissing a little as his skin seared slightly. The paste had started to wear off on some sections of his body.
The alien pulled on his boots before slamming shut his locker door and proceeding back out into the gymnasium. His footsteps echoed loudly across the wide arena. As he approached the exit, a lonesome teacher blocked his path.
"You're still in here? What are you doing here? Skool finished half an hour ago. Who's class are you from?"

ZADR - Best Years of Our Lives prt. 3 .FAILED.It was late in the night; Zim had finished with Dib a few hours ago, and had fallen asleep with his head on his chest. Dib was wide awake and staring at the ceiling, cold from left over sweat. He hadn't even moved an inch from his position since Zim fell asleep. He looked down at Zim slightly, seeing his messy black hair covering most of his face, and his left hand resting lightly on Dib's abdomen. He had a lump in his throat that appeared after they were done, and it hadn't gone away since. Just then, Zim shifted slightly, stuffing his face into Dib's neck. He still didn't move, his stomach lurching painfully. Tears began to silently fall down the sides of his face, and he cried himself to sleep.ZADR - Best Years of Our Lives prt. 3 .FAILED. in Romance More Like This
The sun rose, and Dib hadn't slept very well. He looked out the window, glaring at a bird sitting on a tree that was chirping loudly. Zim groaned slightly, sitting up and wiping his eyes. He froze and looked at his hands, which now had black smudges on them.

"What is that, Dib-Stink?" Zim asked, almost scared of the hoop.
"It's a hula-hoop, Zim."
"How are you doing that?!" Zim asked, watching Dib move faster as the hoop, moved up and down his body.
"Easy. I just move my hips." Dib slowed a bit, "See? Doesn't take much movement really..."
"I still don't understand..." Zim said, watching Dib in a daze of wonder.
"Try moving your hips." Dib said.
Zim shook his head, looking away, "I rather not."
Dib sighed and let go of his hoop, and walked over to Zim, placing his hands on his hips. Zim didn't fight to struggle to get away, but stared at Zim, curious of this strange 'hula-hoop'.

"Dib? Why did you bring Zim here?" Zim glared at the water at touched his two toed feet lightly. He stepped back and got closer to Dib.
Dib laughed and wrapped an arm around his shoulder. "Zim, you always hate my ideas of fun, huh?" Zim nodded in agreement and nuzzled into Dib's side. "I just want to try something new once in a while. Come on, it'll be fun!" Dib let go of Zima and headed to some inner tubes. He grabbed two and gave one to Zim.
Zim looked at it questionably as he held it. He watched Dib rush into the water and jump onto the tube his belly hitting it and the water splashing around him. Zim went into the middle of the tube and walked into the water slowly.
"Dib? Are you sure this is safe?" Zim shouted so he could hear

"I wanted out of the house. and, it's not that bad. I'm just happy we can be alone together." Dib said, blushing a bit, noticing how gay that sounded. He shrugged a bit, as he smiled at Zim weakly. Zim rolled his eyes, putting his hands in his pockets of his red sweatshirt that Dib gave him for Christmas because he hated seeing him freeze to death and him always stealing his trench coat. Just for Zim, he painted the irken symbol on it and "I AM ZIM" below it, this just made Zim so amazingly happy, he lunged at Dib and told him he was going to kiss him to death for it. Dib knew he was joking completely though.
"We were alone in your room...Why did we have to come to this park of FILTH?!" Zim shouted, crossing his arms.

Spring Fun - ZaDrIt was a hot spring day, kids ran around outside in the that horrible earth sun. The sound of pop music and the low loud hum of bouncing houses- or what ever those weird wiggly things are called that kids jump about in. Zim laid in the grass, staring up to the sky, only some clouds over head-about three. The sun glared into his eyes, making him move his head to the side, seeing Dib playing around with circles. The weird circle tubes - so called 'hula-hoops'- went around his waste, as he kept thrusting his hips, moving them in a circle movement as well. To Zim, Dib was far more entertaining then the sun or stupid blue colored sky.Spring Fun - ZaDr in Romance More Like This

"What?" Zim asked. Glancing at Dib who sat at the other end.
"Oh, I was just thinking how you would try and take over the world. Really, a lot of your ideas would have worked. Even some of them that weren't even plans to take over the world."
"Hm? Like what ones?" Zim turned his head to look at Dib, and Dib glanced at Zim, but turned his head back to the screen. So, Zim did the same.
"Well, like when stole all the organs from kids in school, and when you stole money from people around town." Dib shrugged, "If you kept at it, everyone would have gotten sick or would have died. With the money thing, people would have no money for food, so everyone would starve."
"Heh, if only my mission was not a lie, I would have let you help me take over the world." Zim laughed and so did Dib.

The white ground of the basketball hoop area was glowing orange from the seating that wrapped it's self around the park, which felt like it was on the edge of the world. Zim ran right to a wooden planked wall that stood in the park.

"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.

"Yeah..." Dib answered a little ashamed. It was hard admitting this but at the same time, so much stress was lifted as well.
"What do you mean...bullied?" the word was foreign to Zim. It sounded a little familiar but the meaning was fuzzy to the alien. Dib saw this coming, he knew Zim wouldn't know.
'Well, there goes nothing' the human thought.
"Uhh, well, you know, when people push you or call you names and stuff." that was the best Dib could do for an explanation. It was descriptive enough to get a general idea.
"People always do that to you, Dib-thing." Zim said, he was getting very interested in what the human was saying.
"I know...that's kinda why I'm here..."
The two boys were still lying on the floor with Zim sitting on Dib's lap, lookong at Dib with his arms on the human's shoulders tilting his head to the right in confusion.

The apartment is new, just like their relationship. It is hard to say where, why or how it all happened, one thing lead to another and another and another and so on. But it's safe to say that Dib is liable for realizing their change in behaviour. Thus, they find themselves on the rollercoaster of love. And Zim was still thinking; about death.
One can say that it is a horrible way of starting something as beautiful as a blossoming love and they can say that it will ruin the tender relationship that is just forming but Zim says that what needs to be said, needs to be said. It's Dib's decision on how he reacts to Zim's choice of action.

They were in Hi-Skool by now and Zim hadn’t managed to take over Earth yet. Not that anyone really expected him to. He’s shown his incompetency so many times Dib stopped worrying about him long ago. He just liked observing the many odd quirks the alien had.
His curiosity was piqued slightly. What function did the antennae serve? As long as he’s known Zim and he’s never really figured it out. He assumed they were for hearing and expressing emotion, as they often shot straight up when their owner was surprised or laid down flat when he was angry. But was that all they were for?

It was nothing formal, and you could come in whatever you wanted as long as it adhered to the dress code, that is. But no one paid attention to that stupid thing anyway.
Zim seemed somewhat interested in going, most likely because he wanted to learn more about Earth culture or maybe play a few pranks on some unsuspecting humans.

He didn't care at all. It kept him distracted. So he could work on an evil plan without being noticed. Or something.
He shoved his tray of school food aside and took a blueprint out of his PAK, spreading it out and drawing on it, humming loudly, watching Dib out of the corner of his eye.

She smiled at him, flashing her perfect teeth; years of heavy-duty dental work had finally paid off. She didn't have braces anymore and her overbite was gone; she was quite beautiful now.

He fell onto his side with a grunt of pain, but soon climbed to his feet again.
His adversary grinned at him, ruby eyes alight in the dark of the alley; he had lost his disguise but wasn't bothering to find it. No one could see them back here, after all.
The cocky expression drove Dib to swing his fist at him, but Zim easily darted to the side before returning and slamming his shoulder into him, shoving him against a nearby building that made up one of the walls of the alley.
