Ides of March - Chapter 10
For the umpteenth time, Zim found himself sighing as he tried to concentrate on the checkups he wanted to do, on the station's operating system. Concentration was hard to hold on to, however, when he found his eyes drifting over to where Dib lay, on one of the padded, pink benches to sleep off the stress. The boy had cried for nearly an hour straight, only stopping when exhaustion got the better of him and the alien had to help move him to a spot where he could rest.
Shaking his head, Zim tried to go back to running system checks while the human slept. There was nothing else to do for the alien.
He managed a full five minutes more before he threw up his arms with a frustrated huff, simply switching the station's main computer on to run a standard diagnosis instead of making a more thorough, manual checkup. Slowly and stealthily, as not to rouse the resting human, Zim drew closer, taking a seat just next to Dib to watch him instead of the screens.
Even in sleep, the boy's face was drawn

„Come back here, filthy human! How DARE you take what's ZIM'S!“ Dib laughed triumphantly, holding his loot to his chest while he ran down the corridors of Zim's lab, in hopes of escaping his pursuer.
„It's mine now, Zim! Deal with it!“ He cried, skidding around a corner and running towards the large storage rooms. Maybe he could hide in between the boxes and shelves long enough to make good use of the stolen package in his arms. Zim was close on his heels though, easily matching his speed.
The alien caught up with him just when he ran through the open storage room doors. With a roar, Zim leaped forward, knocking Dib over with the impact of his smaller body. They tumbled to the floor, not even stopping for a second before starting to roll across the ground, both fighting for the upper hand. „Give it back to Zim!“
„Never, spaceboy! It's mine now! You took all the others!“
As usual, it was an earnest, but somewhat

Dib did try.
Slowly, ever so slowly, the boy worked on getting back on his feet. His alien companion watched the progress with keen eyes, even though Zim left him by himself most of the time. Dib was both glad and unhappy about that.
After all, the alien was the only being that he could talk to and somewhat trust anymore. In his own, weird way, Dib knew Zim cared for him and he was grateful for it. The ability to actually talk to someone, train his voice and not be entirely alone with his thoughts was like balm for his addled mind.
Gir... was another story. While he didn't dislike the little thing, there was no way he could stand the noise and the closeness the robot seemed to find desirable. No matter how often he told himself that Gir was harmless and just wanted to play or get some attention, the moment those glowing eyes and grabby, mechanical hands came too close, Dib lost it.
At least, after almost a week, the boy was able to use his own legs to carry himself away from Gir, inste

Idly, Dib made rhythmic, clunking noises with a spoon and his empty soup can. Zim had been very clear about not wanting to be disturbed while he made... whatever call he needed to make. Something was off with that. Something was going on and the human was missing it.
Not that he was up to date with anything anymore, but, even if the moment had been short, Zim had been in a strange mood and it made him thoughtful. A sigh bubbled from his lips. It felt wrong to spend one of his rare, longer moments of being in a coherent state of mind by waiting in his room. But Dib didn't want to intrude in whatever was on Zim's mind too much, either.
Maybe it was something that had to do with Zim's "mission". Stopping the rhythmic clunking, Dib paused. Zim was still on a mission.
It was so easy to forget about that. Ever since this whole dilemma had begun, the little alien had stopped making big and boisterous plans to take over the earth or destroy humankind or other such shenanigans. At least, none t

"Zim?" he called quietly, not wanting to come too close when the smaller male was still upset.
For a long moment, Dib was only met with silence.
Zim stayed where he was, unmoving, keeping his stare glued to the lazily blinking screen.
Just when the boy came to the conclusion that Zim didn't want to talk to him, after all, and that leaving him alone was a good idea, the alien gave a little huff and turned to face him.
“What is it?”
Zim was still tense, Dib could tell, seemingly willing to listen but still bothered by all of this. It glared from the dissatisfied expression in those smooth, green features, a frown pulling at his lips. Dib hesitated, unable to find the right words to say, no matter how much he tried.
“I... about this... I wanted...” He cleared his throat, struggling with the returning embarrassment that quickly colored his pale cheeks. “I didn't mean to upset you. Really, I didn't. If I went too far, I apologize.” Not that Dib really...

Just as Zim had dreaded, Dib's fit lasted well over two hours, which the boy spent curled into a tight little ball on the floor, clutching at his head and occasionally giving a few muffled sobs.
And the entire time, the alien sat with him, watching that he kept breathing and that he wouldn't end up having spasms and injuring himself. It rarely happened, but Zim knew it was probably best to be on the safe side.
At least, Dib wouldn't remember any of this. Once he woke, he would be tired, confused and sometimes, understandably, frightened. That, however, could usually be fixed with a good night's sleep and some distraction.
Of his attacks or whatever happened during them, Dib never had any memories.
And it probably was best that way.
At long last, the boy stirred, a muffled whimper on his lips as he uncurled and rolled over onto his back. Unsteady hands rubbed at his eyes as Dib blinked and tried to get his eyes to focus.
“Finally awake, Dib-thing?”
Zim's voice was low

Sleep was a merciful way to spend a few hours in oblivion, where there were no worries, no loneliness and no worry.
Thankfully, his nightmares were few and far between, so most of the time, Dib was able to get several hours of proper rest. That also meant those hours weren't spent waiting uselessly for his companion's return.
It was strange, the time went by without him really noticing. And yet, he could tell exactly how long Zim had been gone. Down to the very day.
Every day, Dib would return to his cure, repeat the experiment, make sure there wasn't a mistake. He did it until he ran out of blood samples from Zim.
That was about three weeks after the earliest possible return date the alien had given him.
Nine miserable months and, while the human had somehow managed to endure them, suddenly, each passing hour felt like an eternity. With each passing moment, his fear grew. Zim had said it would take roughly four months to get back to irk. Fou

Setting up the lab was done very quickly and after barely a few hours, it was good to go and able to accommodate two or more 'guests'.
They had modified one of the already existing cells – or was 'cage' a more appropriate name for it? - to be secure even from an Irken's abilities. Despite Zim's claims that Skoodge was a rather useless specimen of his species, they figured it was better to be safe than sorry.
There was no need to bother much with higher security or strengthening the restrains for a human. No human being would be able to break out of the highly advanced Irken technology. Leave some damage? Maybe. But not enough to bother with.
An Irken invader, however, no matter how incompetent, would have the equipment to break out of a simple cell. So in order to prevent that, there were some upgrades needed. Dib had his doubts that the minor alterations Zim made to the cell's programming and the odd little device he had placed just outside of it would suffice, but the seriousne

Everything just happened much, much too fast.
After months and months of being all on their own, be it in the relative quiet of the base or the absolute silence of space, there was now the all too familiar flurry of activity and life in the base that both had missed – whether they admitted this out loud or not.
Dib had troubles adjusting to that so quickly.
Not that he was complaining that Zim was back. Not at all. Not ever. But he could feel his excitement taking its toll on him and he had to remind himself, force himself, to stay calm and simply be glad and enjoy the much missed togetherness.
The alien, in order to prevent the excitement turning into stress and anxiety, simply sat himself down for now.
What really put a smile on his face was, that even in the height of his excitement, he knew and saw and sensed that Zim, too, was glad to be back.
There were about one million questions on both their minds, but Zim assured the human that there was enough time. More than enough ti

Picking a name...
It was hard. And it took time. Whoever he'd pick would die. For him.
Too many names had piled up by now. An hour after Zim and him had finished breakfast and moved over to the main computer room, where the alien was reviewing his choices for the 'fireworks' he was obviously quite excited about, Dib sat slumped in his own chair.
The excitement the smaller male showed, he simply couldn't share.
Leaning his head back against the pink cushions, Dib again listed the names in his head.
So many that had added to the misery in his life. So many that had made his life a living hell. There had been bullies who had beat him up more or less regularly, the ones that had taunted and harassed him, and the ones that had watched and laughed.
Smacky, who had caused him uncountable bruises and once even a broken nose.
Chunk, who had not let any opportunity slip to embarrass or taunt him. Even more so when he could do it in front of the whole class or the entirety of the school.

Time had to be the worst value a person could experience.
Dib would watch the digits change on the computer screen clock and yet it didn't make any difference if one didn't know what time they were waiting for.
Time simply went by, mocking Dib with its uncaring passage while the human sat and dreaded every passing minute. And yet, even though he kept track of how many minutes, hours, days and weeks went by, he lost every sense for the value of time itself.
It didn't really matter how time felt to him, or how much of it passed. All that mattered was that at the end of a certain amount of minutes, days, weeks and months, Zim would be back. And they would return to how things were before.
At least... that's what Dib hoped would happen.
In the meantime, however, he was alone. Technically at least. Dib didn't know what deity to thank for his luck, but by some sort of miracle, Gir left him alone most of the time. The deranged thing kept to itself, playing hide and seek on its own or

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

Soon all of Zim's tremors just seemed to halt. He pulled himself back up onto all fours, extending his head up with his neck still cocked at an awkward angle so he could see Dib's face. He parted his lips into the grin again, beginning to screech out in a single laughter with that eerie 'e' sound again.
The sight of that haunting grin seemed to paralyze the boy as he slowly let himself down to the floor, wrapping himself in a fetal position as he rocked himself very stiffly as if to comfort himself. Violent shivers also shook him as the cackle rung in his ears as they only intensified the dread he was already feeling.
Zim slowly began to drag himself over to him, seeing him as wounded prey now. His limbs still had trouble taking turns, looking even more like a creature in dire need of an exorcism.
Dib's eyes expanded as the other drew closer to him. He didn't blink now since in his mind, blinking only made him made him more vulnerable than he already was, even though he wo

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

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

Dib stared at Zim wide-eyed in panic as he approached him slowly, backing up a few clumsy steps before bumping into the fence behind him. He looked over his shoulder and eye it, dreading the fact that he had to climb the damned thing if he wanted to avoid the same fate his teacher had met.
After glancing back at Zim another time, seeing that he was getting closer to him quicker than he thought, he turned and faced the fence and backed up a few steps. He drew a shaky breath before running at it and making a leap as he got close to the fence, grunting as he hit it and started his desperate climb.
A screech of obvious rage exploded from the hobbling being that was trailing far behind his escaping form. “IB!!!!” The name practically pierced through the air as wild eyes, even through those contacts, locked onto him frighteningly and his arms outstretched in a dire want to rip the other from the rusty chained fence.
The screech shook the boy, causing his grip to sli

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

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

Morning came early for the traumatized boy, his alarm blaring loudly in his ear that morning. It was another school day, but would he dare even risk it? The answer was an obvious no as he slammed the top of his blaring alarm with a tight fist, then covered himself back in his blankets. After lying there for several minutes to think over his situation, he considered that maybe some human interaction would help clear his mind... Maybe someone would finally talk to him.
That was a shot in the dark though when it was really considered. What would make today any different from the others to the point someone would speak to him? Especially now that word was getting around that Dib was falling deeper into a psychosis that left him dangerous to others.
He made his final decision to skip again today. In fact, he was even considering the possibility of not going anymore all together. It wasn’t doing him any good anyway and with his current being; he was in no mood for peop

He tapped some codes into the touch screen thingy. It was all in irken so I had no idea what any of it said. Afterwards, he walked towards the other tube. He looked so worried. With his antenna whimpered to the back of his head, he was the very image of vulnerable. This was crazy. Why did he even want to be able to be human? Maybe it was for a better disguise. I honestly didn’t care much. I wanted to see if it would work. I wondered for a second on why he didn’t just steal a human if that’s all he needed. He hated asking for someone’s help so why not take someone against their will?

He opened it and saw that the light was on and his father was reading a book on the blue recliner. The Scythe haired teen took his backpack off and set it down on the wall across the stairs. With a sigh he took a seat on the couch which was next to the recliner that his father was sitting in. Dib took a glance at the book that his father was reading expecting it to be one of his science books.
He rolled his eyes when he saw that the book read 'Understanding your teen.' How amusing. Dib thought it was funny considering that their father had never really stayed home for very long. Ever since their dad met this woman at his work everything had sort of changed, but not in Dib's favor. He did come home more but Dib still got the lecture about studying real science and stuff.

Dib started up his video camera and set it on night vision seeing as it was slowly beginning to darken. Occasionally he would hear a rustling in the some of the bushes from somewhere far off. He looked around to see everyone else was hearing the same thing, especially Zim and his antenna. The Irken looked like he was ready to attack something if it were to be threatening to him. He was perched on one of the lower branches that were hanging above the tent just barely. It looked like the branches were barely holding his weight even though he probably weighted under one hundred.

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.

That's how long it had been since that faithful day he'd stepped into our seventh grade classroom. Black hair, green skin, not to mention no ears or a nose. I knew almost instantly he wasn't human, I mean, really, it wasn't that hard to see. Or so I thought. Apparently the rest of my classmates thought the opposite. A 'skin condition' he'd claimed to have and they lapped it up like a dog sucking pitifully up to its master for a bone. Gullible and naiveté. That was all our society was. And that was all it would ever be.
Of course, they thought nothing more of me than the 'crazy' kid, so in a way I wasn't surprised when they'd turned on me and my opinions. It wasn't like they mattered. Who listens to the insane kid that's obsessed with the paranormal and seeing ghosts and aliens?
First they ignore you, then laugh at you and hate you. Then they fight you, then you win.
