Zim ran around his lab, picking up random items, and placing them on the table next to me. . . We were now in his medical bay, which seemed spotless before he began to search it for supplies.
Once he was finally done, he began to use some of the instruments on me. . . He jabbed me with syringes, and did blood tests.
“I’m sorry it’s taking so long. . . Zim’s computer isn’t used to human blood and disease. . .” Zim had apologized at least several times.
I nodded telling him, that it was okay. While waiting I decided to ask, “What exactly happened while I was blanked out yesterday?”
Zim looked at me worriedly, “If Zim tells you, do you promise not to hurt him?”
“I promise!” I exclaimed, shocked that he would think I would hurt him after all of his help.
He sat next to me, and sighed, “You came into my laboratory, and you were angry, sad even. . . Zim was confused by your behavior. . . So Zim decided to help. . . You attacked Zim, and he harmed you. Then you told me that you wanted it to go away. . . The memory. . . So I helped the Dib, by erasing his memory.”
I raised an eyebrow, “How about the tattoo then?”
“Zim doesn’t know how you got that. . .” Zim sighed, eyes glued to the floor.
I nodded and carefully wrapped my arms around Zim in a loving hug, catching him off guard by the looks of it. He breathed into my ear, “Zim never meant you harm. . . He never hated you enough. . .”
“Y-you never hated me?” I was shocked.
Zim nodded and before I knew it, his lips were on mine in a flash! He pulled away, purple spreading on his slender face.
I lifted my shaky hand to my lips, “Z-Zim?”
“I’ve always loved you, but Zim was too childish to see it. . .” Zim breathed, in almost a whisper.
I smiled, “I’ve always loved you, space boy. . .”
Just at that instant the computer rang, “I’m sorry to break up this lovely moment, but your results are in. . .”
Zim grinned, “Come Dib-love, let’s see if your alive.”
I nodded happily.
