*Project D.I.B pt. 2*
Chapter 2: Please visit him
Of course the boy is crazy, but whatever happened to that big-head human? It's like... He died. I think that's why he hasn't been to skool. I of course asked the Dib-sister whatever happened to the dirt-child, but all she said was that he is in a better place known as an 'Ass-oo-lum.' What the name of irk is an ass-oo-lum? Is it another word for heaven? Or hell? Stupid human... Leaving Zim on this disgusting planet. Zim is BETTER than all these human-pig smellies, and of course Zim goes to a human high skool alone.. With no Dib.
As the day began for Zim, he changed into his human clothes, which is a red long sleeve shirt with black stripes, and a black vest, no gloves, same tights, same boots, and same wig but it's a bit more messy, and he also wore those same purple colored contacts. Zim of course doesn't wear his irken uniform anymore because of the truth he found out 5 years ago about him not being a real invader, and that he is just a defect and a fool to the irken race. He of course couldn't get rid of the depressing phase after learning the truth, but had managed to rid those bad thoughts by taking earth pills, anti-depression pills. It had managed to work but driven Zim mad, which caused him to freak out in his own home.
The little robot that Zim secretly love as his own little brother had been shut off, now leaving Zim all alone. No friends, no family, nor Sir-Units to ruin plans. Zim just thought that it's no use on coming up with a plan if Gir or Dib wasn't there to ruin it or stop it. Zim never wanted Dib to leave, he still wanted the human to foil his plans, but it's not worth it anymore.
Zim had walked down the sidewalk, heading to his and Dib's high skool. Zim sighed once he entered the building, looking around the hallway and how oddly empty it was. Why was it empty? Where is everyone? Zim was curious at this, until some hall monitor came up to him.
"Hey! Where's your hallpass?" The hall monitor asked.
Zim glared at the pudgy teen, wondering what new excuse should he use. "My dog ate it.."
The boy raised an eyebrow then got out his pen, writing a detention slip for Zim. "Here, take it. That's for being late, and for not coming up with a good excuse." The teen said.
Zim rolled his eyes then snatched the slip from the boy. "FINE! Filthy pig-human."
Zim huffed, walking further down the hallway, going into the boy's bathroom. Zim walked in then washed his face with cold water, trying to calm his senses. Mostly, the reason why Zim didn't get burned by the water was that he bathed in paste not too long ago.
"Wh-What is wrong with Z-Zim..." Zim said confusingly, washing his face more with water.
"Your... Missing the human... Your missing Dib...." Said a maniacal voice from within the stalls.
Zim looked up, not seeing anyone in the mirror. "Who is here! Reveal yourself human!" Zim hissed, not knowing where in the hell that voice is coming from.
"I am but a voice in your head... The voice that persuades you..." The voice said.
Zim growled then bashed his fists against the mirror, causing it to crack a little. "YOU ARE NOT A VOICE IN MY HEAD! Only a stupid HUMAN that is messing with Zim!" Zim shouted, turning around to walk over to the first bathroom stall. Zim pushed the door open to it only revealing and empty toilet. Zim went over to the 2nd one and pushed the door open as well, thus revealing another empty toilet. "Zim is very tired of playing your foolish game human." Zim growled.
"I'm no human... Stupid irken, I am merely a voice in your head." The voice chuckled.
"What is so funny! HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT ZIM IS IRKEN!?" Zim yelled, getting very paranoid at the moment as he went to the 3 stall, looking in it to see another empty spot. 'Nobody is there... Only one more stall then maybe Zim will believe it.' He thought to himself.
"I already told you before!" Shouted the voice. "I'm a voice in your head." It said calmly.
Zim glared at the 4th stall then broke the door down with a pack leg, revealing yet another empty place. Zim frowned then looked down. "Zim isn't crazy..." He said softly, clenching his fists tight. "GET OUT OF MY HEAD!" Zim shouted, placing both hands on each side of his head.
"You better check the mirror.." The voice said, starting to laugh evilly.
Zim was confused at why the voice wanted him to look at a mirror, but he did it anyway, seeing himself and a dark figure on the ceiling, crawling towards Zim. Zim's eyes widened in fear from how disturbing it looked. He didn't want to turn around and see it for real.
"Turn around Zim... I'm right behind you." The voice said.
Zim bit his lip then slowly turned his head, not really seeing anything. "Zim doesn't see anything." He said as he turned to face the mirror again, seeing that his own reflection is replaced with a smiling yellow creature with black lips, sharp teeth, big black shark eyes, no nose and has the word 'Happy' labeled to it's chest. Zim back away from the mirror then turned pale. "WHAT ON IRK ARE YOU!" He said, pointing to the creature, and breathing heavily once he turned pale.
"Are you stupid..." The creature said as it's whole skin turned red, and the words on it's chest changing from 'Happy' to 'Mad.' It bared it's sharp teeth at Zim, then glared. "I'm a hallucination of your mind.. But not any kind of hallucination.. I'm a traveling hallucination that jumps from brain to brain, but luckily I managed to escape the old brain that I was at before you, his mind is powerful... I can only escape if that psycho falls asleep."
Zim examined the creature a bit more, then stood straight. "That's crazy! Zim is no crazy person! Zim is not crazy enough to have this 'hallucination'." He quoted with his fingers as he walked closer to the mirror.
"You are crazy... So crazy that you imagined me. No one else can see me, except you. Ever since I switched to you mind I found some very intresting information..." The creature chuckled at the end.
"What kind of information!?" Zim shouted, clenching his fists, wanting to punch the creature. "WHO THE HELL ARE YOU!" Zim yelled.
The creature laughed evilly then dissapeared, leaving Zim's reflection to how it was. Zim looked around then back away more until his back bumped into something. Zim quickly turned around then saw the creature again, but this time in person, not by a mirror. Zim jumped from the closeness then looked at it disturbingly.
"If you were wondering, my name is Mr. Mood-Change, and as I said before... I know why you changed more through out the years... You miss that psychopath Dib, don't you?" He said with a smirk, changing from red skin to yellow.
Zim widened his eyes then hissed. "ZIM DOES NOT MISS THAT PIG SMELL-DIB!" He lied, pouting and crossing his arms.
"Not from what I saw... I see what you think Zim. You miss him, you want him, you need him... And maybe..." He smiled evilly. "Maybe even love him.."
Zim opened his eyes as he felt his face flush to a dark green. "WHAT!? NO! Zim does not lurve this human, life is be-better without him, and seems easier to take over this planet." He sighed, turning his back to the hallucination.
Mr. Mood-Change's smile never left as he placed a white rubber gloved hand on Zim's shoulder. "Why would you take over a planet if your not even a real invader... You are an idiot, and has no modivation to continue anything without Dib. You are a laughing stock to your own race. The only thing that's on your mind that's keeping you going is... Dib." He said. "But... IT'S YOUR FAULT!! YOU MADE DIB GET SENT TO AN ASYLUM AS A CHILD!! YOU RUINED HIS LIFE YOU SHIT! ARE YOU HAPPY! YOU HAPPY! HAHAHA!!! YOU ARE NOTHING WITHOUT DIB!!!" Mr. Mood-Change laughed maniacally, now baring his teeth at Zim.
Zim frowned from the truth about himself, knowing that it really is true, he looked down to the ground as a small tear trailed down his face. Mr. Mood-Change looked at Zim from behind then got closer to him. "You know it's true Zim... You remember how your 'almighty' tallest sent you here, then years later they told you that you weren't even a real invader. THEY LIED! They lied to you Zim, and the only one who actually acknowledged your presence was Dib! Look what happened now... You have nobody, not even your idiotic robot Gir. How does it feel Zim? How does it feel to screw up your own life? As I said before, without Dib, you are nothing." Mr. Mood-Change frowned, turning back from yellow to red skin.
"I know... I know what Zim has done to Dib, and..... Z-Zim is s-s-sorry." He apologized, still frowning. "What happened to the Dib... Is the human still obsessed with the paranormal?" Zim asked curiosly, turning around to face the hallucination.
Mr. Mood-Change nodded in disagreement then turned grey, meaning his mood is depressed. "No... He gave up a long time ago and went insane. You need to visit him Zim. It'll probably bring back those old memories."
Zim nodded. "Fine, Zim shall visit the Dib... Dib needs to remember me.." Zim sighed with a frown.
