Zim quickly scooped up Arc in his arms, unknowingly being protective of his unknown daughter. Keef smiled at him, "Heya pal! Wow is that your sister?"
"No," Zim paused, "I mean yes of course she is!"
Keef took a step closer, which made Zim take a step back. Zim's maternal instincts kicked in, which made him, growl.
Keef put up his hands defensively, "I did not mean to make you mad."
Zim growled, "To late for that."
Arc watched as her new mother and apparent friend stared each other down. It was nerve racking to the smeet, who only came to live a couple of months ago.
GIR was even silent, as the anger from Zim, and the complete happiness of Keef filled the air. It was an acidic combination.
"It's been a long time." Commented Keef.
"Not long enough." Sighed Zim.
Keef then suddenly was behind of Zim, making Zim gasp. Before Zim knew it, he was on the ground unconscious. Arc squeezed her way from under him and ran over to GIR for protection. She rose a small shaky fist up at Keef, "Let mama go!"
"Mama? Zim is a girl? That's even better!" Keef said while he picked Zim off the ground, throwing him over his shoulder. "So she is your mom to? This is great!"
Arc backed away, baring her teeth trying to look more intimidating. She was even growling.
Keef laughed lightly at her attempts, "Wow, you look a lot like Zim. Who's your father? You look like- no I must be mistaken. You can't be."
Arc raised her lekku, "Can't be what?"
"Oh- it's nothing." Keef had tricked the little girl, now before she knew it; she was clasped into his free arm. She struggled but with small force.
"Heya Dib, I got her!" Yelled Keef as he walked into Dib's room.
"Her?" Asked Dib.
"Yeah I found out Zim is a girl! Isn't that great!" Keef couldn't contain his excitement.
"I told you not to do anything to him till you got back." Growled Dib.
"I didn't honest!" Pleaded Keef, as he sat Zim down on Dib's bed. He made sure to tie his arms and legs to each bedpost.
"Then how," Dib paused, as he spotted the little smeet fighting her way free of Keef, but failing, "Who is that?"
"Oh- yeah! This is Zim's daughter!" He held her out for show.
"Daughter!" Exclaimed Dib. He then stood from his computer and looked closely at the tiny Irken, she growled at him.
"Let me go! Let mama go! I demand it!" Arc yelled, as she struggled.
"Wow!" Dib gasped as he inspected her, "She looks so weird."
"Hey!" Yelled Arc, she did not like being called weird, "You the inferior species look weird!"
Dib began to pat her hair, "Wow your hair is real, not a wig like Zim's. What are you?"
Arc sighed, "Arc won't say a word."
Dib straightened himself to stare at the child, "You're a lot like Zim. But you appear to be different. Who is your father?"
"Why would I answer you!" retorted Arc.
"Because if you don't, I will make sure Zim's torture is way worse." Dib threatened.
Arc sighed, and stopped her struggling, "You wouldn't!"
"I would." Dib smiled evilly.
So then the little girl told them everything that she knew, which was minimal at the most. She told them how she got to be on Earth, how she didn't know about having a father, or let alone who he was, and she even told them that she was only half Irken.
