ZADR Orange Chapter 092
Eyes widening at Rose's words, Zim seemed to seriously consider them for a moment before smiling to himself. "Oh, hey! That's right!" he grinned wide and glanced at Dib. "Well, go ahead and try it on." he said, taking the bunny shirt from Rose and pushing it towards Dib.
"Wh-What?!" Dib blushed a bright red now, looking at Zim as though he were crazy for agreeing with her. "Zim, are you cra-" he got cut off as Rose happily grabbed him by the arm and dragged him into the changing room with her to have him try it on. Then, after several minutes of struggling with him to put it on, Rose pulled Dib out of the dressing room wearing the pajama top.
Giggling a little, Zim grinned wider then he ever had. "I like it." he said.
A few other customers looking their way just to giggle themselves at the funny looking outfit, Dib was at this point too horribly embarrassed to even respond.

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?"

A bit flustered by all of Rose's questions, Dib could only blink at the shirt she was holding up to him. "U-Ummm...I-I guess..." he said. Rose really had been dragging him back and forth, making him try things on, something he wasn't very used to. And he couldn't say he had any idea whatsoever to say back to her. To say the very least, he had hardly even ever had any reason to go out shopping for clothes in the past. To his knowledge, his clothes had always fit him up until this point in time. So being asked all these questions about something he really could care less about was putting him on edge a bit. He had at least hoped Zim or Jack would come in with him rather than leaving him to deal with Rose all on his own.
"Oh, come on, Dib. You have to tell me whether you like things or not. Otherwise we'll never be able to get you what you want."
"But I don't KNOW what I want." Dib whined a bit. "Can't I get a second

Taking another step forward towards Zim, Jack sent him an all too serious look. "Zim, what happened?! And don't try changing the subject! If I weren't okay, we wouldn't be here right now! But I'm obviously fine, so just please tell us what happened!" he pleaded with the other in an all to urgent voice to just tell them what happened.
"Please, Zim! We've been worried sick about him ever since you took him from our house! We're concerned about him! And we're concerned about the smeets!"
Swallowing, Zim blushed some more. "U-Uh...Well...I-It's nothing BIG. Just a little accident...B-But...He's really upset about it..." he said, still not wanting to tell them what happened.
"Zim! Tell us what happened! It's the least you could do after what you did to Jack back at our house! So don't just brush it off like it's nothing! If he doesn't want us bringing it up, then we won't! But at least tell us wh

Avoiding Dib's gaze, Zim looked away. "No...But it has to..." he said in a quiet voice.
The tears coming now, Dib hugged the PAK even closer to himself. "Is it because you think I hate you?" he asked, his voice coming out broken.
Eyes stinging as he held back his own tears, Zim kept his gaze looking away, his time having already started counting down from 10 minutes. "No...I-I want you to know I care...I would do anything for you...I'd give you my life..." he said just to have Dib cut him off.
"But I don't want you to give me your life! I already know you'd do that for me! You've already done that so many times! And now all I want to do is to be with you! But you never believe me! If you would really do anything for me, then don't do this to yourself! That's all I want! I want you to be alive and warm! I want to wrap my arms around you and feel your heart beating!

Realizing his mistake in asking Jack and Rose about their baby, Dib blushed and looked away also. "Oh..." he could only blink at their answer before dropping his eyes down to the ground. He had forgotten again the sensitivity of the matter. Wrapping his arms around Zim, he then hugged the other's waist tightly as an awkward silence then followed.
"So, umm, how about those stores?"
Nodding his head slowly, Dib lifted his eyes up to look at Rose before pushing himself up carefully to a sitting position as he attempted to get back to his feet.
Standing up himself, Zim rubbed Dib's back. "So which one first?" he asked.
Rose turned to address Zim. "We'll take you to the one Jack and I got all our stuff first. Then we can check out the others to see if there's anything there that you guys want that you couldn't get at the other store." she said, getting up with Jack's help

Hearing Jack's words, Rose's face became one of concern. "Oh no. We'll be right over." she responded back to Jack.
"Well, where are they?!"
"In one of the bathrooms. Dib is throwing up."
"Alright. We'll be waiting for you." Jack said before ending the call by closing his phone and returning it to his pocket. As Dib continued to throw up, he couldn't help but glance over, noticing that a lot of what was in the toilet looked to be blood.
Jack waited until Dib had finally stopped throwing up long enough to ask him whether he had hurt himself. "Dib! Dib, did something happen to you after you ran off?! You're bleeding!" he exclaimed as he continued to rub the panting hybrid's back.
Dib was by this point crying too hard to answer Jack's question.
Jack, rather than waiting for a response from the hybrid, carried him out of the

Just allowing Zim to scoop him up and carry him over to the tub for a bath, Dib didn't even respond or look up, his dazed gaze focused on the ground beneath them. He couldn't look back up at Zim, even if he wanted to. It was almost as though he had completely shut down.
Worried about Dib but thinking it would be best to get the both of them cleaned up first, Zim stepped into the warm goo and sat down with Dib in his lap.
His antennae shivering before falling back to rest comfortably against his head again, Dib didn't respond at all save for a small shudder as they entered the gel. He wasn't exactly used to the gel baths yet, the semi-liquid substance still somewhat cold to him despite technically being a 'warm' gel bath.
Sighing heavily, Zim pet Dib gently. "I'm so sorry, Dib...This is my fault...Again...EVERYTHING is my fault...M-Maybe...you shouldn't have remembered...You could have

Dib blinked his eyes wide open. "Wh-What...?" he looked over at Zim. "What?! I thought they were going to leave us alone!" he said, obviously not happy with the news. He didn't want to think about why their leader was coming in the first place considering his and Zim's previous relationship.
"Well, apparently not. Because he just called my base a few days ago and told me to let you two know." Tak smirked, now finding enjoyment in Dib's particular reaction, especially when she rested her head on Gaz's shoulder, hands traveling down the girl's body inappropriately.
Dib blushed at how Gaz just seemed to ignore the other

Seeing Zim perk back up somewhat at his words, Jack smiled. "I think that no matter what happens, things will work out for the better. Don't even think about what might or might not happen. You two were happy before you decided to do this, so stop putting so much emphasis on this as though it will be the deciding factor in whether you two stay together or not. I already told you that marriage is just something people do to re-affirm their love for each other. It doesn't mean that two people can't be happy together without one. I know you'll love Dib no matter what, so just go in there and let him know that. You don't need a marriage to tell him that." he said, placing a hand reassuringly on Zim's shoulder.

Crawling into the other side of the car, Zim set the bags down on the floorboard and reached out to take Dib from Jack.
Pulling away once Zim had taken Dib, Jack then proceeded to help Rose back into the car before climbing in himself. "So...Do you just want me to drop you two off at home? Or would you rather I take you back to our place until Dib wakes up?"
"I-I don't know..." Zim nuzzled into Dib. "Wherever he'd be happy..." he said.
"Zim...You know he'll be happy wherever he is just so long as you're there...So, let me state my question differently. Are you feeling well enough to survive an entire car ride home?

Blushing at the small lick to his cheek, Dib gave Zim's finger one last good suckle before pulling it from his mouth and turning over onto his back so he could look at Zim better, still cradling the other's arm to his chest. Turning over even more onto his other side so he could nuzzle himself into Zim's chest, he then hid his face there so the Irken wouldn't see his blush.
Wrapping his other arm around him to hug Dib closely to him, Zim lightly nuzzled against the top of his head, still smiling at him. "Hmmm...You are so...What's that word?...Oh, yes. Cute." He said before giving Dib another small nuzzle.
Lifting his head to look up at Zim, Dib's face flared up a bright red at the other's words. "Y-You think I'm c-cute?" He said, tilting his head to one side slightly.
Zim looked down at Dib a bit blankly. "Uhm...Yes?" He said, wondering now whether he had used the correct word to describe Dib.

Dib frowned at the look on Zim's face. "It really wasn't your fault. It was mine. So if they ask me what happened, I'll just tell them it was a result of my own stupidity...A-And that I don't want to talk about it..." He said, looking away awkwardly.
Snapping out of it, Zim looked back at Dib for a moment. "Huh?...Oh, right. Y-Yeah...But y'know. They may have forgotten about it." He said, not feeling entirely sure about that but running a hand down Dib's arm regardless. Bringing his hand over to rest on Dib's warm cheek, he then sent him a small reassuring smile.
Dib nodded his head slowly in response to that. "I hope so..." He said before closing his eyes and pressing closer to Zim, hiding his face once again in the other's uniform, reluctant to look up. The memory of wh

"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

Running a hand over his hair apologetically, Zim sat up a bit to put his wig back on, still smiling at him as he leaned himself on him carefully again and sighed. " I wish I didn't have to wear this stinking disguise...Oh well." He shrugged.
"Me too...But maybe later tonight, after we go to bed, you can take it off while you sleep. I doubt anybody will come in while we're sleeping."

"You're up early." came a voice. I turned towards my door to see Gaz standing there. She was already dressed for the day in her usual attire of a black dress and striped purple and black tights. She glared at me and I could see her new GameSlave in her hand.
"Why was Zim here yesterday anyway? I passed him on the way back from the mall. He looked kinda spaced out."

I kicked at a stone, or so the hyoomans had called it, with my foot as I made my way back to the base. I was perturbed yet also intrigued by the Dib-hyooman's odd behaviour towards me today. First he stares at me, and then he tries to touch my hair covery thing as well. What was his problem? Maybe he thought I was making the whole project thing up.
Truth is, I wasn't. That old hyooman by the name of Sowourz really had approached my superior form and requested this 'project' be completed. I hadn't told the Dib what date she wanted it by yet, but heh, he could figure that out for himself in that huge head of his. I'm sure there was some form of brain within it.
As I approached the base I found GIR sitting on a pile of dirt, a little flag on top bearing the Irken Command logo. Of course, as soon as he saw me, he leaped up and flew at me, knocking me to the ground.
"GIR!" I shouted. "Get off!"
"Mastah!" My mental SIR unit squealed. "You is home! I

Gripping my bookbag tight, I turned to leave the classroom. The morning sex-ed lesson had seemed to go on forever and it didn't help that Sowourz had insisted we pair up to work on some of the questions. I hadn't been paired with Zim (thank god, I can only imagine how that would have went) but that didn't stop the obnoxious green alien from demanding answers from other students. Half the morning he had spent twisting around in his chair and slamming his fists onto desks, yelling loud enough for the students on the opposite end of the school to hear, about how 'hyooman's' were lax and 'stoopid' that they actually needed to learn about this 'stuff.'
I had smirked again at that, asking him if he'd ever learned about sex-ed on Irk, to which he yelled 'I AM FROM EARTH! I AM NORMAL!' in an attempt to bypass the question.
Now I headed towards my locker. Zim's was right across from mine on the opposite side of the corridor, strangely enough. We didn't share homeroom, but

He had kept true to his word.
I was making my way out of the skool to the front entrance when I saw his green skin standing out against the montage of human flesh. Skool had just ended and the buses to take students home had started to pile up out front, while cars sped off around them filled with teens. I had never had to worry about taking the skool bus as my home was in walking distance to the skool. Zim's home was just a few blocks over from mine. I went over to him, the other students sniggering, pointing and laughing at him behind his back.
He turned around at my voice, tilting his head at me slightly.
"Dib," he hissed. "Well shall we?"
"We shall. The sooner this stupid project is over, the better."
He didn't answer me, but his body language suggested he strongly agreed. Gaz appeared behind me at that moment, making me jump slightly. It was an annoying habit of hers, sneaking up on me like that.
"Let's go, Dib," she sneered at me. "I ordered a

Dib remained in an almost trance-like state for a few moments as he recalled a few memories of Zim. He took another deep breath before speaking again in a quiet tone. “Zim... He was pretty interesting.”
"Yes? What is his personality like?" The doctor questioned, beginning to write again at the others decision to elaborate more on the subject.
Dib slowly looked back to the doctor, shifting in his seat as he considered the question. “Well, he was loud and obnoxious and would often insult the human race whenever he had the chance to. But, he was very proud of his race and his leaders. He made every attempt to take over Earth even if he failed every time. But I liked that about him...” Dib’s voice trailed off some as his gaze lowered. “I admired that about him actually..”
Dr.Gaul hummed and nodded his head a bit. "Well, I can only chalk this up as more schizophrenia from how you say this. You seem very fond of this little delusion as

Dib found himself completely frozen again as the other approached him slowly. It was almost as if time had just stopped completely as each step created more and more anticipation and fear. He could hardly even bat an eye as his gaze was glued on to Zim with no intention of looking anywhere else.
Zim took agonizingly slow steps to him, the laughing dying down to weak 'e' sounds of an eerie laugh. He stopped when he had reached him, eyes turning wild almost instantly. He leaned forward and continued that grin of insanity, looking like he was a wrong breath away from a total meltdown. "I...want to....." The rest turned into garbled nonsense, but he paused, as if he were waiting for an answer now.
Dib didn't seem to catch on to this though as he was too intently focused on the other's horrifying expression, sending shivers down his spine the longer he stared at it. He considered running, but of course his body wouldn't even allow him to move a finger as he stood perfectly still

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

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

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.

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?"

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!!!

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.

Through the first week Dib and Gaz came to see Gir routinely. After the first week was over, they took him home with them. Ever since Zim left, Dib blamed himself, and went into a small depression. He didn't talk to anyone but himself, Gaz and Gir; but mostly himself. Dib stopped chasing after other paranormal, because it reminded him of the fun he had with Zim. Gir regularly checked up on the house, and no intruders ever came.
Dib would look through his very special telescope, and try to find Zim ever night. He sent echo waves through space, from one of his dad's machines, asking for forgiveness and pleading for Zim to come home. He never got an answer.
By the fifth week of summer he started getting desperate, and started writing letters. Short ones and tied them to balloons and let them free. After about a week of sending hundreds of letters, he stopped sending them, but kept writing. Every week he would go with Gir to Zims house, and leave the letters in Zim's house. Dib never gave

"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.

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 walked into school by himself on Monday morning. No sister; no best friend. Dib felt alone and sad. He felt as if everyone was looking at him; he felt as if every whisper was about him; that every laugh was turned to him. He felt that everyone knew what happened and was blaming him for it.
Dib walked into his classroom five minutes before the bell and sat in his seat. A girl with purple hair and braces, known as Gretchen, came up to him. "What's wrong, Dib?"
Dib looked into her eyes. He looked away as he spoke, "I did something horrible and I think I severed my friendship with Zim. He probably hates me now and I can't do anything about it!" Dib could take back the words that left his mouth; though he wished he could. He looked down at his desk as the tears came back; he tried hard to keep them from falling.
Gretchen then got suddenly angry. She looked at Dib and glared at Zim's seat.

Zim walked outside with the rest of the class. Outside, Zim breathed deeply in the air. Skool would be ending right after recess and Zim didn't want to waste his time. He walked to the fence and watched the humans play around him. He waited for Dib, watching the door constantly. While doing this, he suddenly knew he was being watched, and not just at a distance. He froze, but didn't let his eyes waver from the door.
"Aren't you leaving today?" A harsh, female voice said beside him.
Zim didn't look away from the door. He leaned on the fence and crossed his arms. "Yaeh. Why do you care?"
"I don't. I just had to know if you were leaving. It hasn't left Dib's mind. That you're going on 'vacation', I mean. You know what? You sicken me." Gretchen stared at Zim.
Zim still stared at the door. "I don't care. You sicken me as well. I don't know what your problem is, but don't mess with me. You don't know what you're messing with."

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.

"This is all your fault..." he muttered, half to himself and half to the disguised alien staring just as intensely back at him.
Antennae twitching beneath his wig at the silent statement, the Irken scoffed at those words. "ZIM is not the one who brought a water gun to school, worm-baby. If anyone is to blame for landing us in detention, it's YOU!" he jabbed a finger in the human's direction, standing abruptly from his seat.

He reached for it, stopped himself, and then finally decided he couldn't just leave said package out by the front door where it might be rained on or stolen. So stooping down low to pick it up, he then headed on inside, telling himself he would only stash it in his room until he found the time to mail it back.
