Parental Unit Pt. 5
~Parental Unit pt. 5~
Just to think. . . After I left Zim, I had headed off to the big city to start a new life and also took over my father's business as the new famous scientist, but I also left my old town just to forget about my old love life, Zim.
I don't even want to talk about that lying alien. All he ever did was bitch and moan about everything, every little thing is always a big problem, and I had to deal with him being such a jerk to me about that stupid small problem. I'm still really mad at him about how he lied to me about being 'pregnant' so that I can stay with him. Hmph, well I'm not stupid. That irken is an idiot and a liar, he is someone I would not want to spend the rest of my life with. I rather be spending my life at this wonderful mansion, great job as a rich scientist, and many fans. Yup, this is the life and nothing is going to top it.
As the next day had begun, Dib was already awake. He always had an early start o

4 years later..
Well by the 4 years raising Zap, he'd had grown a bit, he was still really small. Zap looked like a baby still, only that he can walk and talk and everything. I just wish I had a little more time with the smeet but sadly... I'm more sick than ever. The disease has finally taken over my body. I can already feel myself dying off slowly. I'm more worried about telling Zap the news about me dying. A baby shouldn't deal with this stress but I guess it has to happen.
Meanwhile I'm laying on the couch with a blanket warming me up while Zap is watching t.v and sitting on the floor, laughing at the cartoons on the television of a cat chasing a mouse. Hmph, I will never understand these human shows and their way of comedy.
Zap turned his body towards me and smiled. That smile... It o

'Zim?? C-Could it be? N-No... I-It cant! It just can't be possible, how can Zim even have a child!? How can he reproduce? So many questions. I just couldn't believe it, b-but if Zim is the mother then... w-who is the father? Oh geez, this isn't looking too good for me.'
"So... uh Zap, right? I was wondering, who is your dad?" Dib asked nervously.
Seeing Zap frown once again, he sighed and took out an envelope from what seems to be his PAK, a PAK very similar to Zim's but instead the color on it isn't pink, but instead it's blue.
The little green boy got off the couch and walked toward me, handing me a letter what seems to be.
I raised an eyebrow at it, confused of what it could be. "Who is this from?" I questioned the sad child.
Zap slowly walked back to the couch and climbed back on top of it since he was too short to just sit down regularly. He looked straight at me with those eyes and I could tell he was trying to

Zim sobbed a little at the thought of Dib not being here with him or even at least seeing their child hatch out of the egg, and their child's first words, his first birthday, his first time killing a human during the time of hunting season for irkens, and the first time he learns how to walk. Zim teared up more, trying to keep in his tears but it just trailed down his cheek. He whimpered softly to himself as he held the egg close to his bare chest to keep it warm. Zim looked down to the egg then petted the top of the shell. He did smile at it because of this thought Zim had about the smeet looking like a human, with no irken features.
Zim sighed sadly to himself after that thought went away. "Why is Zim so stupid... It's because of Zim that the Dib-human left him, and now Dib won't

I was terrified for a moment when I stepped into the tube. Zim could have been easily tricking me to destroy myself, but it’s been so long. Why would he try to kill me now? 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?
Just as all these question jumbled through my spinning head I glanced over at Zim. He was so pinned up in the tube. His shoulders were tightly pressed near his head in a clinch, almost as

I trusted the scan to work…mostly anyhow. I swallowed as I waited for the light to finish scanning us. Dib seemed more interested and focused on me, instead of his own fate. I mean I DID tell him that nothing would happen to him…which it shouldn't, but still he held no hesitation to just sit there and watch me. Then I felt the morph begin. The sting of the light that blinded my vision was strangely invigorating. I felt that my eyes were being rinsed of all there color then suddenly grew back but a smaller tunnel of vision like my lenses. All the while, my skin was burning. Not like the cooking burn of rain water, but like my skin was melting inside out. I felt my lekkus split at the end and unravel into threads that felt like they were growing all over my head. It did NOT feel good. Thankfully, sense my lekkus have always been damaged to sensitivity from my experimentation days on Irk, it probably hurt a lot less than it could have. The tips

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

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 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

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

"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...

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

When Zim walked into the brig he held up his hand, signaling to the guard to give him some privacy. The guard left with no questions asked, just a silent bow of respect. Zim walked over to the control panel and immediately opened up Red’s chamber.
Red was sitting on the little bench that was the only piece of furniture in the room. When the force field winked off he looked up at Zim optimistically.
“I won’t go with you.” Zim said simply. “I have cleared the hangar for a few minutes; this will be your only chance.”
“Why won’t you come?” Red said, disappointment very apparent in his wavering voice. He walked over to Zim with one hand around Purple’s PAK and one out toward Zim, imploring. Zim pulled a laser gun out from behind the consol
Deliverance ch.52Zim slowly walked back to the intersection hub he had passed through before then took the right branch, this time headed to the bridge.

“Come in, My Mate.” Vitz said from the captain’s bench. Zim did as asked and walked up to him, reverently bowing his head. “You are always welcome here.” Vitz finished, gesturing for Zim to sit next to him.
“Thank you, My Tallest – “
“Don’t call me that!” Vitz said quickly. “I’ve been meaning to talk to you about this; I want you to call me ‘My Mate’, just as I call you that.”
Zim nodded his head but didn’t reply; he didn’t quite feel right calling Vitz that. The pair sat there in silence for a long time. Vitz was happily absorbed in his duties as Captain; watching over his crew and tellin

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

Zim tried not to feel anxious as he continued to wash himself.
"Oh, shut up, Zim! You know very well I asked you to keep a shower running for me before you left the gym! How was I supposed to know you were still using it?! Besides, I thought you hated water! So why haven't you gone home yet?!" Dib snapped right back at the other, peeking out from behind the curtain of his shower to have a look around, contemplating ducking behind various shower curtains until he could reach the towels on the other end of the room.
Chancing a quick glance over at the shower Zim was still standing behind, he took a deep breath before darting out to make a quick dash for the shower curtain closest to his own. He then did the same with the next one and then the next one, drawing ever closer to his prize. When he was about two showers away from where he could see the folded up towels however, he felt his foot slipping against the wet tile floor as he made another mad dash for one of the curtains.

Dib rolled his eyes. Of course Zim would be going off again. This time was no different to the last, except instead of rambling on about the cafeteria food giving him blisters, he was directly addressing the cafeteria drone herself. She ignored him of course, barely casting an eye towards the green 'child' directly in front of her, let alone every other student in the cafeteria for that matter.
How could they not see? Even after a two years of the same nonsense. Dib had at least expected something to change. But no. He was still picked on. Still known as the crazy kid with no friends. The paranormal freak.
Putting his hand to his chin, Dib slowly ate his cafeteria food, trying to blot out the noise of Zim's raspy voice, but it was no good. He could still hear it ringing throughout his head. He almost envied how the other students could block Zim out so easily. He just wouldn't shut up.
The pounding sensation emerging on the right side of his temple didn't help either. The more Zim rant
