Stars, overpopulated planets, burning comets- These things would capture the entire attention of most creatures. But not me... Not anymore... They used to. I used to be so fascinated... But then... The-The incident happened...
I turn my attention back to the screen on the dashboard, my synth-esk lock of hair falling in my face. I push it back out of my face, in order to read what I had just typed. Staring at the Irken at text before me, reading and rereading the same name, over and over, again and again. My mind frozen as I sit there, staring at the screen.
Suppressed memories come flooding back again. Hot tears bubble to the surface and stream down my ivory cheeks. I turn away as I slam the screen down, not wanting to look at it again for a long time. "His name. It was his name."
I hear a voice come from behind, one of a lost love. "Dib-love, why must you abuse my equipment?" My tear burning eyes widen as much as possible. Quickly, I spin my chair around, only to be met with the fuschia emptiness of my surroundings.
My head dropping, I close my eyes. "Why do you haunt me? Why won't you just leave?"
"Dearest Dib, I'm fully capable of leaving, it's you that isn't letting go."
My bright eyes popping open, I look up to the right of me, to find my one true love. His big, deep, dark eyes of red violet, looking so soft, that I feel my heart melt. "Zim!?" He nods. I grab him by the hips and yank him down onto my lap, wrapping my arms around him so he can never leave "Zim. Zim, I'm so sorry. I could have saved you!"
He puts his finger on my lip to keep me from speaking, then placing his hand on my ivory cheek. "No Dib, you couldn't do anything."
"Yes I could, I could have done something. I could have made a different choice..." Tears begin to spill.
"Shh, shh, shhh. You didn't know, you couldn't possibly have known that the armada would have came anyways."
I pull his hands from my face and hold them in mine. "But even if didn't, I could have chosen my love over my home..."
"But then we both would have died." Staring deeply into his endless pools of ruby.
"Well, then I would rather be dead than live without you." Bringing my digits to his jawline. Closer and closer we come. Until our lips touch- the kiss begins to burn like so long ago. Smoke escapes our lip lock. The kiss, so soft and so gentle, yet so full of passion. Burning like the endless candle of time, but eventually the candle burns out and the kiss comes to an end from lack of breath.
Panting, I look to him, only to watch him vanish before my very eyes. "Goodbye, dearest Dib." His voice echoes as it fades into silence once again.
As my mind registers that it was merely a far too vivid hallucination, the tears flow once more.
Soon, I hear the annoying clanking of metal feet and the ear splitting squeal of one of the only other beings living on the carrier. Resting one arm on the dash and the elbow of the other on my knee, my head in my hand. "Leave Gir."
"Aww... But mastah... I wanna-"
"I said LEAVE!" I yell, slamming my fist against the dashboard, creating a 'bang' so menacing, it echoes throughout the room, and makes it feel like the whole carrier vibrate. After that, the only sounds left being the pitiful sniffling of the robot and and the scraping of metal against metal as he leaves, dragging his feet.
I turn back to the window before me, red tear glazed eyes staring into empty space. It used to fascinate me, but not anymore...
