So he ran, and jumped into the lake's waters, and went under.The water was frozen, shock went though his body as he was chilled to the bone. . . He felt numb, he felt anxious, in the lake's dark depths.He was glad he had decided to wear goggles that day instead of glasses like usual, including he was at a science expo, with his dad just moments ago. He searched for Zim.Excruciating fear waved in his body when he could not find Zim, but hope finally replaced it, when he saw the green of the Irken's face.Dib quickly went down grabbing Zim's arm, he swam up, and out of the water, dragging the unconscious alien with him.Once on the surface of the water, Dib noticed people gathered around, chatting worriedly. Dib swam to the nearest spot of dry

I grinned and asked, “What was the blood about?” I was truly curious.“You had apparently ruptured a vessel in your throat area, under usual circumstances you would have died, but Zim saved you!” Zim exclaimed happily.I was shocked, but I managed to smile, “You know that means I’ll have to repay you.”Zim waved his hand dismissively, “No. . .”I grinned and leaned forward, kissing him softly on the lips. “I have to. . .” I said again, showing my stubborn side.“Oh- Dib-thing. . .

IZ short ZADR: What happens when you waitThere he was again, staring up at the night sky. Wondering why Zim had to leave, why he was to be alone in this world. He's mind now remain in the stars never looking back from the past, only looking forward to the future.Where was Zim? Why had Dib's obsession left him? Why did he wait for him?Dib would wait every night for signs of life, listening in with his headphones. For years he waited like this.Now nearing winter he had to go inside sooner, to reinsure his health.The snow had made his skin frozen, and like ice to the touch.

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. . .
