Zim tucked in his daughter who fell asleep almost immediately afterward, cuddling the stuffed GIR, which GIR himself made for her.
Zim smiled at her, and then left the room. Dib who had taken residence on the couch for the night, smiled at Zim, "So she fall asleep well?"
"Yes quiet." Zim nodded. Even these few words brought back the awkwardness from their earlier conversation. Zim shifted from one foot to the other, trying to think of some way to return the normalness of their new family. He felt as if he had ruined it completely.
"Zim, I'm sorry about earlier." Dib sighed, "See, I just. We never even kissed before, and now you're talking about having a child. I don't know much about relationships, but I know that isn't the correct way to start things."
Zim sighed, "Zim knows your right."
Dib smiled weakly, "Now let's start with being friends and work our way up. Okay?"
"Yes that could work." Zim nodded.
Zim then sat next to Dib and smiled, "Sorry, I'm a total slave when it comes to these sorts of things."
"It is fine." Dib's smile was now strong.
Dib put his arm around Zim and leaned on him, "You're really warm."
"Yes I know Zim is." Zim laughed.
Suddenly Dib realized how tiring and exhausting the past few days had been, his eyes began to feel heavy and he mumbled, "Mmmm. . . Zim."
Zim smiled, realizing that Dib must've been falling asleep. He then stood and picked up Dib bridal style. Dib did not complain, instead he wrapped his arms around Zim's neck and nuzzled his chest.
Zim carried him into their room, and placed Dib on the bed. He undressed the boy, until he was only in his boxers, and then tucked him in with care.
Zim then dressed to, he was now wearing one of Dib's old shirts that he had left there a could of years earlier. Then he climbed into bed next to Dib.
Dib put his arms around Zim, and pulled him in. For a moment Zim felt completely loved by this, but soon after he felt a sense of betrayal.
"This human is willing to hug me and treat me like his loving wife, but yet he is not willing to do me any favors!" Zim thought as he felt Dib's warm breath on his face.
Zim sighed, knowing that one day he will have it his way, let it be by force or by entry. Zim then nuzzled Dib's chest and fell asleep.
Zim woke to a new morning, but anger still making him growl at the suns light. He sat up and glared hatefully at Dib, before he walked from the room to find a good way to get back at Dib.
Dib woke moments later, he sat up and yawned. Instantly he got up and went for the bathroom. He finally made it and stepped in.
Zim stood in front of him, teeth bared at the boy. Dib was thrown off by this nasty glare, now that he was used to the sweeter side of Zim.
Zim stalked out of the room, leaving Dib there dazed. "What just happened?" Dib murmured.
