Ides of March - Chapter 17
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
Changes Ch2Zim stared blankly at the boy, not expecting him to actually ask for more help. But soon, his face turned into a glare. "I may have, but why should I trust YOU in MY base?! It's bad enough that I had to help you now Dib-worm!" Zim sneered. But, the human did look in pain... badly. Maybe he shou-- NO! He was a human! A human who was trying to capture him and cut him open! It was a trick, he just knew it.
"I-don't know...really! Maybe I...trust you more than...than this Skool Nurse?!" Did he really said that now? Wow. "B-But look at...me, Zim. I'm not a threat...to you or your...base at the...moment and I- Ouch! Damn...that ribs are cracked for sure." Dib lost his grip on the others shoulder and slid down the wall, until he was sitting on the floor again. 'I'm just so helpless in this condition', he inwardly whined. Dib was confronted with some long moments of silence from Zim, so he thought the alien would deny any further help. 'Did I really think he would let ME in his base?? How fool
Changes Ch3Zim looked down at his lap, holding his own hand now, like Dib had. 'Is this a human sign of anger?' he thought. Since Dib had done this when he was angry. Oh well, he'd have to look it up on his computer later. "Well, I'm not sure about your ribs being ok, but, what Zim meant was that you’re safe here. The only danger here is GIR bumping into you, or getting that horrible cheese stuff all over you," he explained. Dib looked confused himself come to think of it. Maybe it was something like a human injury symptom that happened as well as pain?
Or maybe it could be a human headache.
"Should Zim get some painkillers? I'm not sure if humans can take them though, since they are made for Irkens..."
He smiled a bit when Zim mentioned the little robot minion. "That's okay...Zim. I guess...I can handle GIR. I just can...trust you from now on...for being...safe here...w-with you." With those last words, he looked at Zim again, fixating his gaze to his big eyes. He frowned as he saw they we
Changes Ch6When Zim arrived back to the room which previously contained Dib, he looked around and saw no-one. “Huh?” Now he WAS confused… Had he made the human so angry that he left? Zim sighed. Well, tomorrow was Tuesday, and that meant Skool, but would the human even be in Skool, maybe his ribs would have gotten worse… Or maybe Zim was just panicking slightly. He looked around the room, seemed a lot more dark and boring when Dib wasn’t here to keep him company… He turned around and put the pain killers down on the side table, he didn't need them since the human was gone. He then made his way out of the room, back down to his lab to do more research.
During his walk, Dib tried desperately to remember the right way out of here, back up to the house level. All he knew was that this was the underground part of Zim’s realm. But the boy was too dizzy -almost unconscious, when Zim brought him here. He woke up on the bed sheets… and that's it. 'Damn.
