'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 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

Chapter One: Over the Radio
Dib's radio was picking up an odd signal. He turned the knob a little to the left. A little to the right. There was a short whine, and the sound came through clear. "Your turn, Zim," said an odd voice - it was high and low at the same time. "You've been assigned to...Earth. One more thing, Zim. This is NOT a regular conquer mission...it's a-" The signal faded out. Dib's eyes widened. This wasn't what he thought it was, was it? It had to be. Dib packed up his radio as quickly as possible and slid off the roof,

It was an average, boring day in school. Ms. Bitters lectured, yelled at people, along with all the other usual things. It was average as average got...that is, until the principal came in. He and Ms. Bitters spoke in hushed tones, until she nodded and he left the room. Ms. Bitters spoke up in her loud, screechy voice, "Class, we have a new student joining us. Please be welcoming, as he might not be as bad as you kids turned out. Now come on in, whatever your name is." The door cracked open, and the new kid stepped in. Everyone's mouths dropped open. The new kid was AWESOME, and he hadn't even spoken a single word yet. He was very pale with black hair and blue-gray eyes, and he wore a nicely fitting long-sleeved shirt with an odd symbol on it - it

Zim and Gaz visited each other like this every day for almost a month, much to Dib's chagrin. Dib kept trying to convince Gaz that her friend was an alien, but she would have nothing of it. "Shut up, Dib. If you knew him, you wouldn't think like that."
It was on a particular afternoon in school that something odd happened. It was free period, where students could do what they wanted. Most students chose to hang out in the hallways, but Zim and Gaz took advantage of this time in the library, studying for a test. Zim appeared to be focused on his work. Gaz's mind, however, drifted in other directions. Zim's deep blue-gray eyes were focused intently on the page, almost giving the appearance of scanning it. He was quietly mumbling to himself, perhaps to help himself remember the information. Watching him sit there like that, Gaz suddenly felt a pul

Chapter 5: An Infiltration Of Sorts
Zim and Dib stepped out of the Pokemon Center. Walking down the street were two women, in Team Plasma uniforms, strolling down the street.
"Hey, it's those creepy guys," whispered Dib. "What was that they were saying? Something about Pokemon rights?"
"Come on, let's follow them and see what they're up to."
Zim and Dib stalked down the road, hiding behind a small row of hedges as the two women passed.
"-New plan is very good, the boss was telling me the details earlier-"
Zim and Dib couldn't hear them anymore, as they were out of earshot and the row of hedges ended here.
"Looks like they're going in that building," said Dib.
Zim whipped out a pair of binoculars, focusing on the building they were going into.
"Looks like some kind of club, but it says 'Women Only' on the front door," informed Zim.
"Gee, if only one of us could change into seamless disguises at will to become a perfectly convincing

Chapter Three: Gaz goes Visiting
Zim sat on the couch, kneeling off to the side, doing his homework. He felt his first day on Earth had gone reasonable well, with the exception of that boy Dib completely psychoing out and assaulting him. Gir was curled up on the edge of the couch, and all was quiet. There was a knock on the door. Zim set his work down and went to answer it. Gir trotted after him. Zim was surprised at who was there.
It was the purple-haired girl who had been sitting near Dib. Gaz, was it? She stared upward, appearing to be trying to think of the right words. "Sorry about my brother earlier," she said, "He's really weird like that."
Zim shrugged. "It's fine." he said simply. Gaz looked surprised, but appeared to not have much mor

"Get OFF of me, Dib!" shouted Zim, pinned down by Dib.
"Never!" shouted Dib back, struggling to keep a hold on the Irken. They were deep into Zim's lab, and Zim was just about to fire a death ray at the Earth before Dib showed up and knocked him to the ground.
"I repeat, get OFF of me!"
"No way, not after-"
There was a flash of light, and it went black.

They both sat up. They were in a grassy area, right out side of a small town.
Dib jumped up, pointing accusingly at Zim. "What did you do?!" he demanded.
"Actually, I didn't do anything this time," said Zim, also standing up and brushing himself off.
They both looked around. "Well, where are we?" asked Dib.
Zim read a small sign. "It appears we're in some place called Nuvena Town."
Dib sighed. "I've never hear

Chapter 3: An Odd Meeting
Zim and Dib walked through the forest path, looking down at the trainer cards they'd been given by the lady from the Pokemon Center.
"I swear, that lady put 'Pokemon Breeder' under Trainer Type on purpose," said Dib. "You're lucky, you got 'Ace Trainer.'"
"Honestly, 'Pokemon Breeder' sounds like someone who really knows about Pokemon to me," said Zim.
"But to BREED them?!"
"I'll admit, that's a bit weird. Under personality, I got 'Serious.' What did you get?"
"'Naughty.' I swear, that lady has it out for me."
Zim was about to reply, but he was bowled over to the ground. When he recovered from the blow, he looked up at his attacker. It was a tiny, puppy-looking Pokemon. It was yipping happily, and and didn't seem at all combative.
"Hey, I think he likes you, Zim!"
"No kidding. Say, maybe this would be a good opportunity to catch more Pokemon." He pulled

Chapter 4: A Different Perspective
Zim and Dib sat down on two of the little, cushioned stools lining the Pokemon Center. Dib leaned back in his chair, his Oshawatt sitting obediently by his feet. Several young trainers had their eyes glued to a television screen, which was broadcasting a report of a drive-by in Saffron City, Kanto.
Zim snickered quietly.
"What's so funny?" asked Dib, a bit offended that Zim was laughing at something like this.
"Oh, I'm not laughing at the shooting," said Zim, leaning back in his chair. "I'm laughing at the absolute stupidity of humans."
"What do you mean?" asked Dib.
"Humans: Turning on their own kind rather than working towards a common goal they're self-destructive! Much better things could be done with technology than using it to kill each other.

Ha! Got ya!" yelled Dib triumphantly, having just snagged his very own Pidove. The two had been on a catching spree for the past hour or so, catching as many Pokemon as they could for their own teams and the Pokedex. Zim's team now included a Ponpur and a Pidove, and Dib's now had a Ponsage, along with the Pidove he just caught. "So, how many we have in the 'Dex so far?"
"Let's see," said Zim, whipping the Pokedex out of his pocket. "Twenty-four!"
"Woo! We're making pretty good progress!"
"Now for the bad news," said Zim. "There are one hundred and thirty-two left to go."
"WHAT?!" asked Dib, jaw dropping.
"And that's just in Unova. There are six hundred and forty-nine Pokemon in the world total, so if we want to make a truly complete Pokedex, we're going to need about...six hundred and twenty-five more."
Dib groaned. "Well, let's focus on the Unov

They left the library, going down the road.
"We're looking for Professor Juniper's lab, they say that you can get Pokemon from there," said Zim.
"I wonder what they'll be like," said Dib.
"The information I downloaded didn't have any pictures of them, so I wouldn't know."
Dib shrugged. "Well, I guess we'll find out soon enough."
"You know, you're not that bad when you aren't trying to kill me," said Dib.
"Neither are you." They stopped outside of a large building. Outside was a sign which read 'Professor Juniper's Research Lab.' There were two other kids, looking about Zim and Dib's age, hanging around the entrance.
One of them, a girl, piped up, "Hello! Are you two here to get Pokemon, too?"
Zim and Dib nodded.
The boy, a rather snobbish looking child, sneered. "I haven't seen you two around here before."
"We just moved here," said Dib.

I hate you-ZaDr Chapter 1"What is it?" A large purple alien with tentacles asked as it peeked through the bars of a certain scythe haired teen's cage.I hate you-ZaDr Chapter 1 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"It's a human, a very rare find nowadays...which means it's far more than you can afford." The salesman said, shooing the poor alien away with his claw like hands.
This was how it was every day, the human was packed up in his cage and set out like an item to be bought and people who noticed him were always too poor to buy him. The human had used to struggle and scream at the salesman in a strange language that nobody in their right minds knew, but after a couple of beatings he'd been silenced and he now obediantly sat in his cage cross legged, not even bothering to look up from his lap. Most would believe he was dead were it not for the calm rise and fall of his chest and occasional sick cough that escaped him. He was clothed in the skinny jeans he had been found in years ago and they were stained, ripped, and much to small for him.
"Well, how much is he?" A voi
Dying Tonight-ZaDr part 3The human was banging loudly on the door to Zim's house, each knock resounding in an almost eery way into the empty base...not even answered by the insane robot who had surely been deactivated the second the irken had died. "ZIM I KNOW YOU'RE HOME, ANSWER THE FUCKING DOOR!" He screamed, trying and once again failing to kick the electronically locked barrier. "DAMNIT!" He yelled furiously as he plopped down on the front step. Why wouldn't the alien answer his door? Usually he at least had Gir try and keep him busy. He sighed, running a hand through his tossled hair, it looked like he was going to have to use a different entrance.Dying Tonight-ZaDr part 3 in Short Stories More Like This
The teen stood up and began circling the house as he looked for at least a window or something that wouldn't be noticed if broken..but it wasn't like anybody would notice if it was the front windows anyway, people on this planet were just plain stupid. Dib gave an exhasperated huff when he found no such window and was about to go back to knocking on the door an
I Hate You-ZaDr Chapter 2Dib was laying on the mattress of a magenta sheeted bed, clad in his familiar trench coat, neutral smiley face T-shirt, and of course new clean skinny jeans. His limbs were sprawled out over the bed and he was practically purring at the feeling of the soft clean sheets. Cleanliness was a luxury he'd gone without for years and finally being able to enjoy it was amazing.I Hate You-ZaDr Chapter 2 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The mattress felt as soft as a cloud to him...almost like one of those memory foam beds on earth, and the room was pleasantly warm. During his study of irken culture, he'd found that irkens were extremely similar to cold blooded creatures in the sense that they couldn't control their body temperature. Because of this important armada ships had a heater built into them. For invaders however they had a certain program installed into their PAK which kind of worked in the same way that humans regulated their body temperature.
The human rolled over onto his side, nuzzling his face into one of the oversized pillows. The room d
Dying Tonight-ZaDr Part 2 Dib wasn't worried when the little green alien didn't show up for school the next day or the day after that or the day after that. He just thought the insane alien was working on his latest plan to conquer earth. Of course he wasn't worried at all, that was a feeling he reserved for people he cared about. But then why did he have a feeling something bad had happened?Dying Tonight-ZaDr Part 2 in Short Stories More Like This
The mysterious phone call he'd received late that Tuesday wasn't helping with his suspicions. The irken had sounded broken when he'd hung up, almost on the verge of crying; but Irkens didn't cry. He'd never even seen the irken sad or close to being unoptimistic.
Dib gave out a loud sigh, which amazingly went unnoticed by the teacher, and stared at the clock. Ten more minutes and he'd go to Zim's house. He'd vowed to himself that he'd check on Zim today. Not that he was worried
Trench Coat-ZaDr Zim stepped out of his house and into the frigid air, wearing his usual uniform. He hated earth winters, they were cold and made all the humans sniffly.Trench Coat-ZaDr in Fantasy More Like This
The alien's uniform was extremely thin and did nothing to block out the chill. Which is probably why he was so cold, but he'd never stoop so low as to buy a human coat. His race however had never heard of a coat before since it was always warm on his planet, so he went without anything to block out the elements. He refused to wraps his arms around himself, this would show that he was cold, and that would be a weakness. The irken walked down the sidewalk, occasionally slipping on a patch of ice or two before regaining his balance.
Dib stepped out of his own home, wrapped up in his warm trench coat. He didn't much like winters either, they were cold and he hated getting sick.
Dying Tonight-ZaDr "Dib?" asked a strangely soft voice over the device in the human's hand.Dying Tonight-ZaDr in Fantasy More Like This
"What is it space-boy?" Dib asked spitefully. He hated the irken, and how the alien had gotten his phone number was beyond him.
"Dib, Do you think," There was a short pause and a shuddered breath could be heard from the cell phone, "Dib do you think I'm a good invader?" The irk finally asked.
"What does that have to do with anything?" The human asked irritatedly after a long pause. The alien was always so vague and it ticked him off almost as much as the alien's screaming.
"I just have to know." Zim replied softly, trying to keep his voice level and calm.

Each step had been torture since pretty much every human was staring at the high alien; even though half of them looked much weirder.Reproductive Joos-ZaDr Part 6 in Short Stories More Like This
Dib opened the door to the Membrane household then tugged the alien inside. He finally relieved Zim of the trench coat wrapped around his head after he'd closed the door. He sighed in relief that had been much harder than he'd expected. The human walked over to the couch to sit down, completely content with letting Zim do whatever until he wasn't high anymore.
"Where are the snacks?!" Zim yelled right before Dib could sit down.
Dib let out another sigh, though this time it was more aggravated. "They're in the kitchen." He replied gently.
"Can we watch a MOVIE?!" Zim asked suddenly becoming very hyper once more.
"Fine what do you want to watch?" Dib asked, rubbing at his temples agitatedly. He felt like he was babysitting a 5 year old.
Reproductive Joos-ZaDr Part 5 With that decision Zim danced his way through the crowd and towards the utterly confused human. There were no words to describe how messed up Zim was at this point; he was seeing floating pandas and everything was really bright and colorful to him. He stumbled over someone else's feet, and fell on his stomach in front of someone. He giggled when he realized it was the Dib who had been so lucky as to have him fall in front of him, and he latched onto his leg.Reproductive Joos-ZaDr Part 5 in Short Stories More Like This
"Hiiiiiii, hyuuuuman. I missed yoooooooou." He said, nuzzling his cheek against the other's boot.
"Zim?" Dib asked, glancing down at the alien confusedly. The irken was overly happy and seemed to be disoriented, he was also not wearing his disguise which both confused and frightened the human for some reason. What the heck was wrong with him? He bent down and picked the alien up by his shou
Strangers-ZaDr Chapter 1 The new kid; no matter where you were from, or what grade you were in you always heard about them. They were always the main topic, even at the Hi Skool. Dib however did not participate in the usual gossip; he simply sat in the corner of the cafeteria deep in a book labeled "How to catch a ghost." He was an outcast so of course nobody talked to him and he was left in peace. The teen pushed his glasses higher up on his nose, better adjusting the lenses for reading; he wore a long black trench coat with several pockets and zippers on it that had no real purpose, his pants were long black skinny jeans, and upon his feet were a pair of black combat boots. The boy's hair was rather unusual; it stood on end atop his head curving in a sort of scythe like fashion while the back of his head was shaved, though if that wasn't weird enough, a deep blue streak ran through the center of it, matching the shade of his shirt almost to perfection.Strangers-ZaDr Chapter 1 in Fantasy More Like This

He was not scared nor was he surprised by the sight, in fact there was just a numbness settling over him. He just watched in an almost sick fascination as the fire traveled closer and closer to his own home, the flames licking hungrily at the sides of the technology filled building before taking it all away in a minute or two of raging fire.
The teen stuffed his hands in his pockets and walked calmly away from the fire, he knew he couldn't stay for long because soon the spot where he was standing would be engulfed in fire as well as most everything else

He stood there in front of me, nothing but crazed, lonely, desperation in his eyes. Once vibrant green skin had paled more than I thought possible. Now he just looked plain sickly. Bright ruby eyes had faded and lost all of their wide-eyed wonder and spark. Antennas were drooped so low, they grazed his shoulders when he made the slightest movement.
Zim had no doubt walked all the way here out of his disguise. But no one turned their head at the "crazy foreign kid disguised as an alien". How backwards they had it . And they would never know.

"Of course it does. They didn't want to be saved, the stupid monkeys."
Dib bit his lips and turned away. Zim had tried to comfort him, but the alien wasn't exactly all that sympathetic towards what was happening to the poor boy's race.
The two sat side-by-side on the roof of Zim's disguised base, watching the horrifying demise. This barren wasteland laced with fire had nothing to do with a certain alien race like Dib had first accused. Rather, his own species had turned on itself.

"Oh, come on Zim! How did you know? I was even extra sneaky this time!" The Irken in disguise looked over his shoulder to smirk at the frustrated boy.

That certain glint in Zim’s eyes was the only real reason Dib ran these days, huffing and puffing and hiding around every corner. He didn’t have to, no. He would receive no permanent harm if he stayed. And he was reminded of this when the alien’s honey-dripping voice called out to him with a longing that shot straight to his groin.

His eyes closed again, leading me to think he was gone for good.

I felt him take a deep breath beneith my hand.
He groaned in pain, his 3-fingered hand rubbing his forehead. Knowing that he's not dead put a smile on my face. Since I'm not used to using those muscles, the smile slightly hurts.
When his eyes reached my face, noticing that I've been expressing an emotion no one thought I posessed, he began to smile as well.

"I didn't have to be this way! I chose to be. Dib's the sensitive one!" I yelled at him. But the thing is, Zim will never understand. Dib and I watched our dad walk passed us millions of time without even acknowledging us. He rarely calls us by our names. Sometimes he forgets. And even though I'm younger than Dib, I showed him that it's okay not to care about anyone.
"I don't give a fuck, Gaz. You've ruined everything. It's my job to burn everything to the ground. To eliminate all man-kind. You got in the way."
"Zim, you fail to understand that you've permanently FUCKED UP MY LIF

As soon as I hit the ground from Dib's brutal toss, I realized that he went back inside.
I sat up, and stared at the purple door.
"Fuck this," I whispered to myself, "Dib can't tell me what to do."
I began to run, run faster than I ever could. Someone's life was on the line, and I can't afford to lose him.
All the way back home, I demolish Dib's room in search of a powerful Irken weapon he obsessively brags about.
When I found it, I stuffed it into a backpack, and sprinted back downstairs.
"Gaz! What's going on?!" Shit, shit, shit, shit.....
"Oh... nothing, Dad. I was just... going out..." I spoke slowly.
"Oh, okay. Have fun!" He responded easily.
When I reached the corner of a weird street, something started to buzz in my pocket.
It just happened to be my cell phone, informing me of Dib's current location. Thank you, tracking device.

"I don't care. Bigfoot's just around the corner. Today, I'll get him!" Big head, big hopes. Not a big surprise, however.
"Okay, well... I'm gonna jump outta the car now," Gaz said, quite emotionless.
"Have fun," her paranormal crazed brother, Dib, replied.
Gaz reached for a heavy book on ghosts in the backseat of Dib's shiny-black car, held it with a strong grasp, and threw it on the brake peddle. The car screeched as it abruptly stopped. Gaz, then, clamly got out.
"Hey! I was trying to catch up with Bigfoot! I'll never get him now...." Dib obsessively went on as Gaz walked away in the pouring rain.
She just happened to be a block away from Zim's freakish-green house. Zim had recently resigned from his job as an Invader, for he has found out that he was originally supposed to be exterminated. He's also grown fond of the humans. Observing them is as interesting for him as TV is for the ex-Bloaty's Pizz

I just breathe.
When my mind feels clear, I start to feel okay. It's the same. Everyday.
I lay down on my bed, burning holes into the ceiling with my stare. I procrastinate the little homework I have until the last minute.
Dib, from beyond my thick door, notifies me that dinner is ready. As moronic as he's been for my whole life, I find him useful.
As soon as that moron stops the car, I jump out of it like he's telling my some "facinating" story about something paranormal again.
Desperately trying to get to my locker, I run into someone. Someone tall, someone purely ominous, someone with light green skin, I assume has been lurking the hallways since early this morning.
"Hello... Gaz-Human," he emphasizes the word 'human' like it's an insult. To him, it most likely is.
"Greetings, Alien-Scum," I glare at him, burning holes into his soul. I can tell it hurts by the way his facial expression c

This is the first time in my whole life that someone has ever thought of me this way. I've never been loved before.
I give up. I can't fight him.
He has forced me to let go. It feels good to let everything negative slide out of your grasp. Every tear that should've been shed, slipped from my finger tips. I was so bound to the Earth with my fear. But now, it feels good to breathe.
And Zim was the cause of this.
After a while of spending time with Zim at his house, I forget one crucial fact: Dib.
The front door bursts open, taking chunks of the wall with it.
"WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE?!?!" Oh shit...
Dib had used one of Dad's mega-mechanical arm. It came with a giant fist that could launch forward with the push of a button. That's what broke the door.
He stomped into the freakish-green house, obviously furious.
He doesn't scare me, though.
I looked straight at him. My eyes locked on his. Using all my strength to make him shive

I assume it's around 2 in the morning.
It's still fairly warm, and the sky looks about ready to burst with rain.
The dark grey of the gloomy clouds match my mood perfectly. Hopefully, I won't feel like shit in the morning.
I had to be back home around 6am, before Dib notices that I left.
I walk with long, strong strides. Nothing can hold me back.
Buildings go by, the streets are empty, no one's in my way.
I arrive at Zim's small green house around 4am. My heart beats rapidly with the thought of being near him...
What the hell is wrong with me?!?!
I step closer to his front door with a slow pace. Thinking to myself, 'Why are you doing this, Gaz? There's no point. What's he going to do, anyway? Yell at you for the rest of my short life, and annihilate the Earth? That's not so bad.'
Confused, I just stand there. On his front step. Wow, I'm smart. (Sarcastically speaking, of course)
I turn around, sit

Kagekao stopped; the blades of the staff were just inches away from the demon. His mask no longer showed an angry face, but one of confusion.
The demon eyed the deadly blades and sighs when he sees that they were no longer moving towards him. He took a few deep breaths to calm himself down. He slowly starts to get up.
The face on Kage’s mask changed back to an angry one, and he shoved the blade forward, causing the demon to fall again.
“おまえだれ！？” (Who are you!?) Kage snarled.
“まて、おまえ-!” (Wait, you-!) The demon replied hastily, raising his hands a little to show that he wouldn’t attack.
“どのようにオレの名前を知っていますか！？” (How do you know my name!?) Kage demanded angrily, feeling

Kage sighed. He climbed further up the roof so that he could no longer hear his parents; he didn’t like to hear them so sad.
Kage climbed to the highest part of the roof and sat down; he felt like he needed some alone time to think. He felt afraid; he didn’t know what his parents were planning, but it didn’t sound very easy.
He closed his eyes and listened to the sounds of the night. The wind blowing through the grass and the trees, crickets here and there, things of that sort. They were calming and peaceful, something nice.
Kage opened his eyes, and thought he saw something in the woods. He grew alert and looked over in the direction where he thought he had seen it. It had been small and subtle, but there was something.
Kage silently climbed down the roof and onto the ground. He headed into the forest, looking for the thing that he had seen. He walked over to where he had seen it, and found it; a small luminous yellow light floating through the air. It was a firefly,

Kagekao had managed to sneak onto a flight headed to Japan. It was a long flight, but he managed to stay hidden throughout it. However, it was boring; so he did decide to have some fun towards the end of the flight.
After the plane had landed and the passengers were waiting to be let out, Kage had snuck up on two of the airline staff. He killed them silently, and then put their bloody bodies on the cart that held drinks and food. He then shoved the cart down the aisle, sending it rolling away with the bodies on it, spilling blood onto the floor as it sped by the passengers.
The passengers had panicked and started screaming and running around. Kage, satisfied with his work, made his way away from the scene and towards the cargo hold. People had already begun taking the bags out, so the door was open and he left.
It was late at night, so the area was dark and filled with shadows; perfect for a demon like Kage to stealthily get around.
Kage then made his way past the airport; climbing up

Memories; they came in all sorts of ways. Some were beautiful, something to be remembered and cherished for years to come. Some were traumatizing, things that were longed to be forgotten, but stayed. And yet still, some were just small fragments of scenes from one’s life.
They were like small video clips that played in one’s mind briefly.
Kagekao reached out his claws and sunk them into the bark of a tree. He pulled himself upward, climbing higher. From the ground, Kurai watched his son. Finally, he reached the highest branch of the moderately sized tree.
‘I did it!’ He shouted proudly, but then foolishly fell. His father reached out and caught him before he hit the ground.
‘You know you’re supposed to keep your claws unsheathed, right?’ Kurai asked the young demon. Kage laughed, embarrassed.
They seemed small, maybe even insignificant; but they were so much more.

Several days had passed since Kagekao had awoken in bandages. He was recovering and doing better, but was still injured. However, he could stand and walk without pain now; so he insisted that they returned to the house.
AkaDoku objected at first, saying that Kage was still too injured to make the journey; but he could tell how much Kage wanted to go, so he gave in.
Now they were both headed towards the other city. Doku constantly looked back at Kage to make sure he was alright.
“You doing alright?” Doku asked him, once again turning to look back.
“大丈夫よ！” (I’m alright!) Kage hissed “Stop asking.”
“It’s just that, they shot you so many times!” Doku stopped walking, concerned.
“Don’t worry about me,” Kage walked past him. “If a wound breaks open then I’ll tell you, let’s go.”
Doku continued walking, catching up with Kage. They had reached the other city,

Kagekao lied on the floor of the room. He groaned and turned his head, opening his eyes slowly. He looked around in confusion.
He put his hand to his head and moaned; he had a painful headache. Taking the hand away from his face, he saw a few stains of blood on his fingers. He realized that his head was wrapped in bandages, which had become soaked with blood in a few spots.
Kage looked down, he was lying on the floor and wrapped in a blanket. Looking to the side, he saw something lying next to him. Kage sat up and looked at it; it was an odd mask, half black and half white.
Kage picked up the mask and looked at it. Something in his mind told him that it was his, and that he should wear it. Kage put on the mask. The white side of the mask caught the subtle effect of his eyes taking away light in confusion. This effect was amplified and reflected by the mask, which now had a confused expression on the white side of it.
He also noticed that he was wearing a black and white striped scarf.

“お父さん. . .” (Dad . . .)
Kagekao knelt by his father, crying. The day had been so happy and fun; and now this. The night was silent, no cars, no people, nothing.
Kage felt something new start to burn inside him; what was that? . . . hate?
Scollex’s body had burned up into sparks and ashes, which drifted away on the wind and disappeared out of sight. Yuki picked up the silver daggers which remained, and then ran over to Kage and Kurai.
“クライ!” (Kurai!) She bent down and started to try and find any sign that he was still alive.
“お母さん、お父さんが . . .” (Mom, he’s . . .) Kage couldn’t finish his sentence.
Yuki put her ear against Kurai’s chest, listening for a heartbeat. Then she put her hand to his neck, feeling for a pulse. Then she gasped and looked up. She looked around the area for something, but didn’t seem t

Memories, they seem easy to hold on to, yet in reality, are fragile. Like delicate glass or china, memories are precious; yet, even something small could shatter them all. They are precious treasures that one keeps to oneself; although some may be burdens, others are beautiful moments that will always be in memory, long after the moment has passed.
And yet still, they seem like they would be forever, even though once they are gone, they seem like they were never even there.

The sun slowly went down the sky and hid behind the horizon, taking its light with it. Soon there was darkness, but the darkness was pierced by the shining light of the moon and the many stars surrounding it.
Night; it was a good time of day, a time for sleep, a time for peace, a time for silence, a time for ‘games.’
Kagekao sat atop a building’s roof and peered down at the city. People left the streets and reentered their homes, some had happy families; husband, wife,

Kagekao awoke to a bright but dimming light shining through the window. He had fallen asleep, and had slept through the day. Now it was at the end of the day, and the sun was almost finished setting.
Kage sat up and yawned. Looking around the room, he saw that he was still alone. A big part of him had hoped that he would wake up to find someone else here, but there was no one.
He took the blanket off of him and stood up. Kage walked over to the window and looked outside. The sun had dropped below the horizon and the light in the sky was fading to darkness.
He opened up the window and poked his head out, looking down at the streets. There were a few cars, and one or two humans walking along the street. Kage climbed out and onto the wall, shutting the window behind him. He climbed up to the roof and pulled himself up.
Looking up at the sky, there was a brilliant half-moon surrounded by a few stars. One by one, more stars came into view. Soon, the sky was full of wondrous stars. Kage gaze

Kagekao followed Akadoku out of the warehouse. It was dark, so they didn’t have to worry too much about running into humans. They were able to walk normally on the sidewalk, hiding whenever a human came near.
They walked through the city, avoiding civilians and going at a quick pace. As they walked, Kage looked around. He could remember this place, he could remember climbing these buildings and preying on these people.
He could also remember the shinigami. Being in this city again, Kage could feel that dread that he had felt when he was younger and alone here; the dread that Scollex could be around any corner, ready and waiting to attack him.
Whenever turning a corner or hearing someone approach, Kage unsheathed his claws a little subconsciously, ready for a fight. Whenever he heard footsteps behind them he always expected to see those three large pairs of wings again.
“You seem kinda jumpy, 大丈夫か？” (Are you alright?) Doku asked, noti
