"Am I Dead?"
Zim opened his eyes, he opened them too quickly and a blue light flashed around his face. He squinted to reduce the brightness. As he looked around him all he could see was a blue slimy prison. It was like water but hard to move around in. But after Zim moved his hand forward he felt cold air touch his hand. He then used some leftover energy to move forward. Then his leg met air. Suddenly a pain in his chest felt liked he had been stabbed. Then his whole body fell out of the slime. He screamed when he hit the floor, he was in intense pain. Then men showed up with guns. They looked at Zim. "Am I dead?" he asked before he blacked out.
Zim woke with an electrical shock. When it stopped he looked around. He was in a dark stained metal chamber with chains hanging from the ceiling. There were lights coming from grates on the floor. As Zim moved his arms he saw they were chained to the table. He then noticed a purple hue to the table. Then he looked across from his head to see a sliver platter with a bloody towel, on top were neatly assorted knives. When groaned as he tried to break free of the bonds. "Hello Zim." said a familiar voice. Zim looked down the hallway to see a silhouette of a figure walking towards him. "Who," he croaked ",are you?"
the figure walked closer "Has it really been this long?" The figure walked closer and it took Zim a few seconds to realize who it was. "Raymond?" it was Raymond, his face had a scar on the other side of it, the scar had a tattoo of a cobra. "Yes, it's me." He said.
"How? Last time I saw you, we were in the big chamber with the blue light. After that…well I had problems remembering that."
"You don't remember? How could you forget the plan?"
Zim looked over at the knives and asked "What are you going to do to me?" Raymond said nothing as he took out a cleaver. He then swung down at Zim with a clang. Zim expected pain but it never came. Zim looked and saw Raymond cut the chains. Zim got up and Raymond answered "We already did everything." Zim looked up "What do you mean?" Raymond sighed and said "when we found you, you were dying. We took dead organs from humans and put them in you." Zim looked at his hands. "W-what?" Raymond said "Your skigglyspooch was failing. We had to get a heart, a brain, lungs, arteries, stomach, intestines, and a liver." Zim looked at his hands, he could see scars left from operation all over his body. "Y-you…y-you," then he jumped up and tackled Raymond to the floor "YOU TAINTED ME!" Raymond took out a tazer and shocked Zim in his stomach. Zim coughed and fell back, he felt a small trickle of blood come from his mouth. He touched it with his finger and saw the blood was red. He started to gasp and he felt something he never felt before. "I'm feeling strange, I'm feeling like this can never happen." Raymond walked closer. "You are experience human emotions, right now you are afraid." Zim looked at Raymond and said "You tainted me." Raymond replied "We saved you." Then Zim vomited on the floor, he felt weary and passed out.
Gaz ran through the pushes trying to hold back tears. She had never cried and she wouldn't now.
As she ran she could hear someone behind her. As she ducked into a cave she panted and panted. Then she sprang out and ran right smack into GIR.
"GIR!" Gaz cried and hugged the robot. GIR wasn't acting crazy as usual, he was crying. Gaz saw his tears warmed her heart and she carried GIR. "GIR I need you to help me find Zim."
GIR shook his head "NO! Master gone, master was working on guidance chip but I can't find master!" Gaz tried to calm Gir by rocking him back and forth "Look GIR, I need your help. I can't find Zim but that doesn't convince me that he's dead. Now GIR I need to go to Zim's house to start looking, but I can't find my way. GIR I need your cooperation in this, understand?" GIR nodded and stopped crying. "I'll even make those microwavable tacos." GIR smiled and shrieked "HAPPINESS ALL AROUND!"
Dib watched as Tak's cryogenic freezer connected into the wall. He felt guilty, they worked together and now Tak was a hostage of the Swollen Eyeball Network. He put one hand on the glass and sighed. "Mothman." Dib turned around to see Darkbootie standing in the doorway. "Don't talk to me Darkbootie." Dark walked closer
"She was a assassin Mothman."
"She was an ally!"
"She wasn't human!"
"She wasn't human, why did she need a disguise after such a long time before allying herself with you."
"Darkbootie, she wanted to help us."
"No she didn't, she played you. You helped her by giving her knowledge."
"She wanted to kill Zim, I was helping all of us!"
"Wrong, Dib do you know what people think of you here?"
"They find me brilliant, which outside people don't."
"No, they find you a moron."
"They laugh at you, and call you names. Agent Tuna ghost and I are the ones who have listened. We have supported you, without us you wouldn't have been able to join the Swollen eyeball Network."
Dib groaned and hit his head into the wall. "Everyone lies to me."
"No they don't."
"Yes they do! My father told me I'm actually a clone to carry out his inflated ego! Tak now lied to me about her species! To make matters worse Zim and Gaz are in love!"
Dib slumped down to the floor and took off his glasses. With a sigh he rubbed his eyes "My whole world is crumbling around me."
Darkbootie walked over and kneeled to Dib.
"Dib, I know things are bad but you can fix them."
Dib got up and ran out of the room. "DIB!" Darkbootie called but Dib continued to run. Then Dib opened the door to his cabin and slammed it shot with all the locks, he jumped into the bed and soon fell asleep.
Onboard the massive there were a long line of Irken bounty hunters standing in front of the tallest. "Now, we have gathered you for a rescue mission." Purple said while Red stood silent "We are counting on you to search for a Tak and Zim. Rewards include 3,000 credits and you are out of Irken concern. We need the toughest of the tough for this job, they won't go home without a fight." Then Red walked over to one hunter who's eyes were changing color. "You," the hunter straightened up ",come here." The hunter walked over to Red. "What's your name and why are your eyes changing color?" the hunter saluted "My name is Irken Tyler or known by my hunter name, the X,. My eyes change color due to mutation which helps me with my disguises." Red leaned in closer "Disguises? Does that include female?" X nodded "Yes, any species and gender disguise." Red questioned "Now about your offense, how are you with long range weapons?"
"Good, very patient."
"Close up weapons?"
"How about Melee?"
"Aright, let me think about this, you have to be really good to capture Zim alive, and even tougher dead."
Red turned around for a second, x looked at all the other hunters and smiled. Then Red turned around and grabbed X. X yelped in suprise and accidental slapped Red away. He knew he would be punished but surprisingly Red got up and spat out blood. He ran over and pushed him into the wall. X was attacking with his elbow to Red's throat but he ducked. Red responded by clutching his hands around X's neck and moving him into a wall. "RED!" Red turned to see Purple with his arms crossed. "I'm sorry." He let go of X as he ribbed his neck. "You got the job kid." Red said as they left the room.
