'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 ho

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.

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 tire

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

Dib walked down the sidewalk appearing more disturbed than he had since this had started. The lingering taste of Zim’s blood seemed to keep him in an almost trance like state as he walked almost unnaturally down the sideswalk. Of course, the boy’s unsettling demeanor attracted more stares from the people around him.
People went from being distasteful and scowling at him, to almost frightened and concerned for the boy. He'd been progressing so quickly to lunacy lately that some people believed it was time he saw someone about it.
This thought of going to see someone though seemed to be out of the question in Dib&rsqu

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 no

Upon realizing there was no sign of the Irken even making an attempt to get into his house, Dib felt it were safer to be in there now than outside so he rushed towards it in quite a hurry. Once he had burst in the door, he slammed it furiously behind him and turned to lock the door for an extra sense of security. Hopefully Gaz had a key to the house so she wouldn't bother him with her obnoxious banging as she did quite often.
After locking the door, Dib turned his back to it and leaned against it, closing his eyes and taking deep breaths in an attempt to calm himself after all of the stress he had endured that day. Unfortunate

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

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 e

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 explo

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 cur

Giggling a bit at Purple's observation, Rose reached her hand back into the other bag of clothes. "I guess he was thinking the same thing." she said, digging into the bag and pulling out the frog night shirt and pants. "See. He's a froggy." she smiled wide, holding the shirt up to be seen.
Grabbing it from her, Purple smiled wide and hugged it. "I'd give anything to see Zim in this." he snickered into his hands. "I wonder if I can convince him to put it on." he tried to imagine Zim wearing it.
Rose smiled a little. "Would you keep Zim alive?" she asked.
Purple looked back at her confused. "Hm? I-I wasn't planning on having h

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

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

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 o

Turning over onto his stomach, Dib curled up in the bed. "I thought we were underground though..." he murmured into a pillow tiredly, too tired to even open his eyes at this point. He was more than content to just sleep the rest of the night away. When he felt a tiny bit of movement in his stomach however, he let out a small whine and shifted slightly.
Zim mumbled. "Yeah...But I'll manage..." he said, cuddling up close to Dib. "Get some sleep, Dib." he said, not realizing what discomfort the other was going through at the moment.
Dib just continued to shift about uncomfortably. "Mmm...Nyeh...Tell that to my stomach..." he said,

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

Pulling out his PAK legs, Zim glared at Jack. "You don't think this is hard enough?! I closed off all his memories since our first kiss!" he exclaimed.
"Zim! There are other ways you can handle this! Making him forget everything and hate you isn't the answer!"
Curled around Dib protectively at this point, Rose's eyes widened suddenly in realization of something. "...Y-You weren't planning on aborting these babies, were you...?" she asked.
"WH-WHAT?! NO! I would NEVER do that! I'll keep him with me till he's come to term, then he can go home. I already wiped his father's mind..."

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 t

Zim was cuddled up to Dib's bulgy belly as he continued to sleep.
Looking back down at Zim, Dib felt torn between getting up to use the bathroom and remaining in bed until the other woke up. Sighing, he decided to go with the latter of the two ideas, flopping back down onto his back, deciding he could wait a little while longer to empty his bladder. After all, his trips to the bathroom HAD been growing less and less over the past couple of weeks, which he at least took as a good sign.
Yawning in his sleep, Zim snuggled closer, ending up lying right on top of Dib's belly.

Regretting his earlier actions, Zim had by now gotten lost thinking about things and didn't hear Dib entering the upper floor.
Antennae falling as low as physically possible, Dib dropped his gaze back down to the ground. "...Maybe he's mad at me..." he looked back up at all the food, not feeling hungry at all. Convinced that Zim just didn't want to see him anymore, he pressed his back to the elevator door and sank down to sit on the floor with his knees to his chest.
Starting to feel hungry himself however, Zim sighed, figuring Dib wouldn't be coming up anytime soon. So, going into the kitchen to get something to eat other than
