Yes, I know. Crazy. Hi, this is Phoenix. This is the sequel ALREADY. But I was bored. Now read.
The room was silent. Everyone looked up at the clock, waiting. No one moved. No one made a sound. Sweat began to pour down Dib's face. Even Gir sat still for once.
3 more seconds… 2… 1….
The bell finally rang for the last time that year. Everyone went nuts. Children were hanging from the ceiling, jumping on desks, and running around in circles. Dib stood up on his desk. "Yes! I- Damn!" The desk fell over, unable to support his weight. "Why do I keep doing that?!!"
"Because you're slow and you have a big head," answered a tall boy with spiky dark hair, and ice blue eyes in the far corner of the room. He grinned smugly and leaned back in his chair.
Dib frowned. "Oh, shut up, Zim!" Then he became happy again. "The year's finally over!"
And it was a year to remember. Dib finally had friends. He wasn't seen as crazy any more. He had even been asked out several times, by girls going from beautiful to homely, and even some guys (group LOL). But he had turned them all down (the guys more quickly and easily). He knew that none of them liked him for him, but his newly acquired fame.
But it was the true friends Dib had earned that had really made the year worth living through. He smiled and looked around the room. It was sheer chaos, with Gir literally bouncing off the walls. Obviously, the boy had no idea why everyone was so happy, but he liked it. Zim was staring at everyone else, and Gam (yeah, that guy again) had died at his desk yet again, and a kid was poking him on the head. Gam gasped, returned to life, said to the kid, "Thank you, you mentally backwards little Earth larvae," and walked out.
Dib took Gam's empty desk across from Zim. "So what are you going to do this summer, Zim?" he asked.
There was a long pause. "Not die…. Probably breathe…. Hm… Maybe blink, too…"
In other words, nothing. "Area 51 gave me 500 grand for the escape pod thing," said Dib. "It was a good deal for it, and I already have her original ship…" Dib paused. Before he remembered Tak, he wondered where he'd gotten that thing. "Anyway, I was thinking of going someplace."
"Someplace?" Zim sat straight up.
"Yeah, like to an amusement park or something."
Gir literally flew over, jumped on Dib's shoulders, and began shaking him. "I WANNA GO!! I WANNA GO I WANNA GO I WANNA GO!!"
"Okay! Okay!" Dib shouted. "It's no fun going alone, anyway! Just get off me!"
Gir didn't, but yelled "Yippee!!!"
"Y'know," said Zim, "I really don't want Gir to go by himself… Someone else besides him should go to look after him…"
"You can come, Zim."
"YAY!" Zim straightened up, and cleared his throat awkwardly. "Very well. You have convinced the almighty Zim."
Dib sighed. "Right."
And thus began the summer.
Lurid happy jigs, commence now. For that was the first chapter.
