Ch.4-Collecting Evidence

The Hospital…

Amber sat by Zim's bedside. He was awake, and clearly in pain. His legs were in casts, along with his right arm. It was in a sling.

"Oh, Irk, this hurts…" Zim moaned.

Amber put her hand on Zim's left hand and rubbed gently.

"I know, I know. I'll find out who did this to you."

"All I saw was a shadow…"

"Shh…it's alright. I'll find him, whoever he is."

There was a knock . Tak was standing at the door with a vase with a rose. She stepped in.

"How are you doing, Zim?"

"Pretty good. I still hurt, but I'm pretty good."

"I……brought you a rose."

Zim smiled. "Thank you, Tak. You can put it on the window with the other flowers."

She walked in and placed the rose on the window. She then walked over to Zim and kissed him.

"See you later, Zim." Tak went to walk out the door. She stopped and looked over her shoulder. "Get well, soon."

Amber looked over towards where Tak put the rose.

"It looks like just about everyone brought you something…" Amber said to Zim.

"Yeah…there's one person who didn't bring me something, though."

He told Amber who that person was. She then said goodbye to Zim and quickly left the hospital.
