Watching the other doze off on him, Zim chuckled, stroking Dib gently. "I'd rather have you in bed next to me." he said, almost seductively as he ran one finger down the side of Dib's body.
"Mmmmm...Not if I'm constantly sick and having to go pee you wouldn't..."
Zim giggled. "If you can handle it then I can handle it." he said, pressing even closer to the hybrid.
Soaking up what warmth he could from Zim, Dib had by now drifted back off to sleep contently.
Feeling tired just watching Dib sleep, Zim then yawned, deciding he was going to go back to sleep as well. Getting comfy, he then leaned against the couch, starting to doze off minutes later.
Walking into the room to check and see if they wanted any breakfast, Rose was surprised to find them fast asleep. Smiling, she picked up the blanket from the ground and placed it gently over them. "Sleep tight..." she whispered, turning off the lights again and heading back to hers and Jack's bedroom to see if he was awake yet and ready for breakfast.
Meanwhile, back on the Massive, Tallest Red tapped his fingers angrily against the arm of his chair. 'What is TAKING her so long?!' he thought to himself impatiently.
Entering the room that Red was in, Tallest Purple instantly seemed to pick up on the others irritation. He had been acting like this for the past couple of weeks, though it wasn't until now that he decided to address it. "What's the matter with you?" he asked, rather unimpressed with Red's recent moodiness.
"Nothing!" Red snapped irritably.
Purple glared at Red for having snapped at him for nothing. "I'm serious, Red. You've been acting like this for weeks. What's wrong?" he asked, coming up behind him to snake his arms around the other. "If you tell me, maybe I'll do something extra special just for you." he smirked seductively.
"I'm not telling you." Red refused to tell his co-ruler what the problem was, completely SMASHING Pur's hopes of having sex tonight.
Purple narrowed his eyes even more on Red at that response. "Well, fine then! Don't tell me...But at least come to bed with me tonight. I want to try again." he said, having been trying to get pregnant for the longest time, something that was becoming increasingly more difficult now that Red had resorted back to his previous isolation again, hardly coming even anywhere near Purple or even touching him. Of course, he had had trouble before then, but that didn't mean he couldn't at least continue trying.
"I'm not in the mood, Pur. Why do you even want smeets anyways? It's not like you'd be able to take care of them."
Releasing Red, Purple pulled away a bit. "I would so be able to take care of them! You're just saying that because I've never gotten the chance to even try! And the only reason I haven't gotten a chance to try is because you'll barely even touch me nowadays!" his antennae slicked back.
Red growled. "There is more to life then having sex with you, you know!" he barked back at the other, slumping down in his chair even more.
"Oh yeah?! Like what?! I haven't seen you do diddly squat in the past several weeks! All you've been doing is sitting in that chair, staring at a blank screen! At least having sex with me would be more productive than THAT! And besides! It's not like I'm asking you to do something we do every single day! The last time we had sex was over a month and a half ago!"
"And you certainly show it..."
"What on Irk is THAT supposed to mean?! Huh?! HUH?!"
Red sighed. "Nothing, Pur. Just go back to sleep." this was the last thing he wanted to be dealing with.
Antennae drooping, Purple sighed himself before looking away to the side and muttering underneath his breath. "You never want to come to bed with me anymore..." the words left his mouth in a defeated manner.
Sighing again at those words, Red merely continued to stare at the blank monitor as he had been doing this entire time.
Back on Earth, Zim kissed Dib lightly, waking him up. "Dib? It's time to go..." he whispered in a soft voice to the sleeping boy. They had been mooching off of Rose and Jack for over a week now ever since Zim had showed up on their door step. The two humans, of course, had no problems with this themselves, but Zim and Dib both felt bad about making Jack and Rose take care of them. So they had agreed that after a short nap, they would say their good byes and head on back to Zim's base.
Not ready to wake up yet, Dib groaned, turning over onto his side tiredly. "Mmmmm...Just five more minutes..." he mumbled, not nearly as awake as Zim was.
But Zim just laughed a little. "Come on, Dib. You can sleep more when we get home." he poked Dib's belly, which had gotten bigger by now during their stay.
Letting out another small whine, Dib batted at Zim's hands blindly, trying to keep him away from his stomach, which had been on and off with nausea, though mostly on when certain foods were being cooked. To his relief however, he had been starting to feel slightly better recently and able to eat more.
Sighing, Zim leaned down to lick the side of Dib's face. "Wake up." he tried again to coax the other out of his sleep.
Scrunching up his face at the small lick, Dib slowly blinked his eyes open to peer up at Zim.
"Morning, sleeping beauty."
Yawning tiredly still, Dib brought a hand up to rub some of the sleep out of his eyes. "Mmm...What time is it?" he asked, closing his eyes again and pressing into Zim comfortably.
Zim glanced over to check the clock on the wall. "Four thirty p.m." he said, ready to get going at this point.
"Then it's not really morning, is it?" Dib reached up a hand to poke at the tip of one of Zim's antennae as a form of revenge for poking his stomach earlier.
Twitching his antennae back, Zim pouted. "So? It's still time to get up." he looked away, blushing.
Unfortunately for Zim, while his appetite had gotten slightly better, Dib's moodiness had gotten worse over the past week or so as he often snapped at Zim about even the tiniest things just to apologize several hours later, a result of his hormones raging now. Sitting himself up slowly, he sighed. "Fine...Fine..." he said in a somewhat irritated fashion.
Unsure whether the other was about to go off on him again, Zim leaned back away from Dib. "Ready to say good bye?" he quickly changed the subject, letting up on his own attitude just a bit.
Antennae pressed against the back of his head falling back down to droop a bit, Dib caught himself before he could get mad at Zim again. "Y-Yeah...Sorry..." he brought a hand up to hold his head for a moment, trying to collect himself. "I guess I'm just tired still..." he apologized for having snapped at the other somewhat.
Zim smiled lovingly at him. "It's okay, Dib. I love you." he repeated those three words he said to the other every time he apologized for getting moody.
Nuzzling into Zim, Dib sighed contently. "Do you want to pick up dinner on our way home?" he asked, completely disregarding Zim's words in favor of food.
"If you want." Zim said happily.
"O-Okay then...I'm really hungry right now. Can we get...Umm...Chinese take-out? I think there should be something on the menu that you can eat. Unless you feel like something else. I don't really care. I'm just hungry."
Zim shook his head. "No, I like Chinese." he smiled. "Let's just say good bye, and then we'll get as much as you want." he offered, knowing Dib was eating for four now.
"...So you're leaving then?"
Looking up, Zim noticed Rose entering the room. "Yeah. We need to get back home." he nodded.
Rose smiled sadly. "Alright then. Let me just get Jack in here." she said before leaving the room to get Jack, returning a few moments later to find Zim helping Dib to his feet. "Oh, I'm going to miss you both so much!" she pulled first Dib into a tight hug and then Zim. "But you will keep in touch, won't you? And come visit us often?" she asked, not wanting them to just drop out of their lives like that.
Zim laughed a little. "Sure. Why not? Maybe we'll bring our smeets when they hatch." he said with a big smile, hugging Dib close.
