I was being shaken as I started to wake up it was Dib; it was still the middle of the night. I looked up at him and wiped the tears from my eyes that I had produced in my sleep. He was kneeling in front of me I was still under the bed with the blanket wrapped around me
Dib: "Zim what are you doing under the bed like this?"
Zim: "is it still going on?" he just gave me a "huh?" look but a loud crack of thunder answered my question I squeaked in fear and put my head to the floor and put the blanket over my head and went further under the bed
Dib: "Zim you`re afraid of thunder" I wined "Zim come out from under there it seem it would be scarier under their"
Zim: "no it`s okay I'm used to getting through stuff like this this by myself" Dib just stared at me
Dib: "you do this at home too by yourself, you're always by yourself aren't you ever since your mom died you`ve had nobody to look out for you" I looked up at him I came out from the bed
Dib: "until now, you got me, you got Gaz, and GIR" we both smile and for the first time a crack of thunder went off and I had a smile on my face
I ended up sleeping with Dib it was true I had someone to take care of me but that didn`t mean I was over my fear but I would someday
just not NOW, or any time soon.
I woke up and smelled bacon and got out from under the covers, carful to not wake Dib who was still sleeping, go figure and I thought I was a late sleeper. I put the blanket that was still on the floor back on my bed and went to the kitchen and Gaz was there finishing a peace of bacon.
Zim: "hey" I grabbed a piece and started on a pancake
Gaz: "hey Zim, whoa what up with the hair" I gave a confused look to her and worked my way to the bathroom and looked in the mirror. She was right my wig was a total flop but I was too tired to care I wasn`t a morning person especially having been woken up two time by dreams. I went back to making my pancake. One I was done I sat next to Gaz she smiled at me I just kept on eating keeping in mind I skipped dinner for the first time in my life last night. I heard someone coming down the stairs it was a yawning Dib. He didn`t say anything he just pored a bowl of cereal pored milk in the bowl and sat across from us but what I didn`t get is how he could eat so quickly I took it about 2 minutes to eat the hole bowl. Membrane came in the house apparently he`s an early riser and he`d been up since sunrise. After breakfast we went about are day Dib and Gaz went swimming I stayed and watched on the dock after that we explored a bit of the area.
After night fall it had stopped raining and pretty much everyone went to sleep except me and Gaz we went out for a while. The full moon was out reflecting on the lake everything was perfect, we sat down on a log bench near the shore and talked a bit we stayed quiet for two seconds burring the whole conversation, but for some reason we both just stopped and looked at each other I felt warm in the face she started leaning in wait what was she doing then it clicked I leaned in too. We kissed, it was my second kiss but it felt way better than the first time. I heard someone clearing there throat behind Gaz we both had are eyes closed at the moment so I opened my eyes slightly when I saw who it was I broke it and turned pail because standing in front of me was Membrane I thought only one thing at that very moment
I was in Membranes office (leave it to him to have a work room in a cabin) I swear once I got up there would be a puddle of sweat below me I mean how was I going to explain the kiss to Membrane, or the fact that when I broke the kiss I had to put my tongue back into my own mouth.
Membrane: "so Zim how long how has this been going on?" I swallowed
I came out of his room glad that talk was over I went straight to my room I didn't want to be anywhere near Gaz at the moment, and I was guessing Membrane was going to Gaz too.
When I got to mine and Dib`s room Dib was reading a book with the end table lamp on instead of the main light. I sat on my bed and took out my note book and wrote for a while, I didn`t feel sleepy at all. I wished there was a piano in the house, then I could think, or calm down one or the two so I decided to look around the house I didn`t get to look at much of the house with everything going on. I checked to see if anyone was still in the house and to my surprise everyone was asleep, and to be honest I wasn`t even sure Membrane slept. I went out to the big tree in the front sat on one of the main branches, sat in an Indian stile, and just closed my eyes it was the way I cleared my head, I believed the technical term was meditation. A couple of deep breaths and I was cooled down quite a bit
Dib: "can`t sleep either" I turned around Dib I shook my was looking straight up at me he climbed up next to me I look down and noticed his wrist was hurt
Zim: "what happened to your wrist?"
Dib: "oh, some jerks slammed it into my locker door last day of school don`t worry about it it`ll heel up" I looked down at my hand and back to the injury even with PJs on I still had my finger gloves on I never showed my whole hand
Dib: "Zim is there something on your hand you're not showing me"
Zim: "what no why would you think that, that`s ridicules" I said in a nervous tone I couldn't have made it more obvious but I couldn`t help it for some reason when in front of Dib I was a terrible liar, I just could not keep anything from him, mostly it was because of the fact he`d probably find it out eventual anyways he just gave me a 'you really think that`s gonna convince me' look I gave up took a deep breath and took one of my glove off and showed Dib the inside of my palm.
Dib: "that-, that`s it, a tattoo" I looked it was a sun looking symbol, it was on both hands but one things for sure it wasn`t a tattoo
Zim: "yeah give it a minute" after a few seconds the symbol started glowing yellow and it was really bright too I was surprised no one noticed
Dib: "well that`s different why does your hands glow exactly?" I could tell he was a little creped
Zim: "I don't really know it just always done that"
Dib: "your markings actually glow" clearly he was shocked
Zim: "that`s not all it does" he looked at me weird "just don`t freak out" I grabbed his wrist and made sure the symbol was touching it closed my eyes the symbol glowed blue for a few second then stopped when I took my hand off Dib looked at his wrist and he looked like he saw a ghost because there was nothing but skin, not even any evidence that the accident happened. He opened his mouth to scream
Zim: "please don`t freak out" I said quickly he closed his mouth
Dib: "no I'm- I'm not freaking out I'm just very interested in your ability how long have you been able to do that exactly?"
Zim: "since I was born" I chuckled at his reaction to my healing ability
Dib: "I've always wondered how you recovered from your injuries so fast, now I understand, do all Irkens have that power" I felt weak, I always did after I healed someone; I shook my head in response.
Dib: "so it`s just you" I shook my head
Zim; "it`s rare, but I'm not the only one" I felt tired Dib saw this and carefully climbed down, I put my glove back on and just jumped off the branch and lightly landed on my feet like a cat. Dib and I went straight to our room I fell on the bed and slept like a rock all night.
