Chapter 11: Sweet Normalcy Once More
The next morning, there wasnt much to show that anything out of the ordinary had happened in Peach Creek. The school was now minus one classmate, on account that she had been flung into space with her SIR unit and overridden space ship. The jawbreaker factory had mysteriously crumbled on one side, so jawbreaker production would have to momentarily halt.
Nope, nothing out-of-the-ordinary there.
There was one last thing that was different this morning: the glowing green house that had, before, resided deep in the woods outside Peach Creek, was gone.
Now, the only thing in Peach Creeks woods (besides the enormous Ice Hotel) was a small, floating space ship containing a green-skinned alien, a small blue-eyed robot, and a purple floating moose. Three boys with the same name were bidding them farewell.
Aww do you really have to leave, Zim? asked Ed.
Youre perfectly welcome to stay here,&

Chapter 10: Eddy is One Lucky Son-of-a-Gun
Double D looked from Eddy, to the giant drill, to Tak. He racked his brain trying to think of something that would make the situation better. There was still no sign of Zim.
Now, Tak he began, trying to maintain his composure. Were all rational beings, lets say right? Why, Im sure if we just talked this out, we can come so some sort of compromise
Attempting to negotiate with someone whos trying to blow up the Earth? asked Eddy. Yeah, real smooth, Double D.
Eddy Double D said through clenched teeth. Let me handle this
Theres nothing to compromise, said Tak. As an Invader, its my job to invade planets. And I intend to see my plan through to the end, in spite of you meddling humans.
Hey, Im only here to get jawbreakers, said Eddy. And I

Chapter 9: My Tallest, Weve Contacted a Moron
The next thing Eddy and Double D knew, they were sneaking around the dark corridors of the jawbreaker factory. However, one thing they had immediately noticed was that unlike their previous visits to the factory (contrary to popular belief, they had been inside the factory before), the place was sweltering hot. Because of this, the boys had to shed their winter clothing near the entrance of the building.
What are we supposed to be looking for again? Eddy whispered again.
According to Zim, a giant drill-like object capable of drilling into the Earths core, Double D whispered back. Since Zims going off to find Tak, Im hoping Ill be able to figure it out by myself.
Well, since its a girl, I wouldnt be surprised if its complicated, said Eddy.
Double D looked at his friend. So youre saying that the fact
Invad-Ed, Chapter 8
Chapter 8: Attack of the Exploding Jawbreakers
Well, this certainly wasnt how I was planning to spend the rest of the night said Double D, with a very exasperated look on his face.
And he had every right to be. At the moment, he was on an elevator with an ecstatic Ed, a serious Eddy (or, at least as serious as someone can get about jawbreakers), Zim (minus his schoolboy disguise), Gir (even though he was no longer wearing his dog disguise, Ed still called him puppy), and MiniMoose. The elevator was hidden in Zims house, and seemed to be heading underground.
Just be thankful I let you three in this far, humans, said Zim. The only reason you three are even here is because youre experts on the building Tak is planning to infiltrate.
We do have names, you know, said Double D.
I know, said Zim. But calling you worm-babies humans makes me sound more intimidating.
