So let me live a normal life, and I'll let you live
We won't both be burst to tears, I'll make you smile
and erase your fears.
Forget the fights that we had every night, if you
wan't I'll stay out of your sight.
Or if you need, I will stop your bleed, because I
learned that the target can be the bully.
~The Silver Stairs : Be the One Alone with Me
A song I wrote for the people who are treated differently.
Let's treat everyone with respect, please.
Riz walked home. Once again he survived a day of middle
school, on this pathetic Earth. He didn't understand the humans
one bit. He hated them all. They all surrounded him and beat him
up, he was sick of all of their bull shit. He clenched his fist
as he started to stomp his feet home as the rain poured onto him.
Sad, his water-proof costume was still in beta. he had no idea
what would happen if rain touched it. It didn't seem like
anything was happening. He was alright... for now... for two
Riz tried to turn around to see who was calling him, except
he already knew who it was going to be. Han. Suddenly, he was hit
and pinned to the ground by one of his gang members. Funny, Han
thought he was a grown adult, hat backwards, smoking a lollipop
and wearing his Skylanders t-shirt under his pathetic gray hoodie
and black sweat pants, merely wearing one sock no no shoes. Yep,
total gangster to the max. He chuckled as the others pinned Riz
down. Han pulled the cherry lollipop out of his mouth and he
laughed again, "Sup, dick face? Why didn't you meet us at recess
for the brawl?"
"I was in detention."
"Because the teacher finally noticed you were a pussy?"
"No, because dicks like you seem to have a fetish for blaming
kids for their shit dirty work."
Han snapped his fingers as one of the kids pinning him
stomped on his leg. Riz screeched in pain as he suddenly felt his
disguise static. It was wearing off! Riz felt a tear drip down
his cheek as he screamed from his broken arm. What was he gonna
do? Riz decided it was time to end this once and for all. If they
wanted to play, he would play along. Call him a cheater, but he
was gonna play by his own rules.
Riz let some of his disguise come off so he could use his PAC
to make a claw come out and swipe one of the kids pinning him off
of the ground. Riz threw the kid across the town, making him
luckily land in something soft. Riz glared at the children as the
shook in fear. Riz got up and clenched his arm, making his grunt
as he tried to stumble himself off of the ground. Riz panted as
the kids started to run away screaming. Riz laughed, "YOU DIRTY
BASTARDS!!! THAT'S WHAT YOU GET!!! NEXT TIME, IT'S GONNA BE ALL
THREE OF YOU, YOU MONSTERS!!!"
Giz slowly limped home, his leg hurting as he grunted over
and over again. The gang again. He just looked back as they
laughed. The leader just taunted him, "Now go home and cry to
mommy! Oh wait, isn't she dead?! Hahahaha!" Giz did whatever he
could to ignore them, but he just continued to walk. Suddenly, as
he limped his way, he heard the gang members call out, "Wait a
second, you still owe us that money! GET HIM!" Giz sighed as he
knew they would try to beat him up again. Giz just toppled onto
the floor, on his knees. He couldn't do anything. With a crack in
his goggles and rips in his uniform, he waited for them to start
kicking him in the stomach again...
When Giz thought he would have been dead by now, he just
heard the gang cower in fear from something. He turned his head
towards the gang, only to find Azurewrath standing in front of
him, guarding him. Giz sighed, he made Azu save him again. He
felt embarrassed knowing that she had to do this the third time
this week. That's a new record to him, not a worthy record to
brag about, however. Giz watched as Azu's eyes glowed red and she
barked at them, "What have I told you idiots? Stay away from him
or I will make sure you can't only touch him, but I'll make you
LOSE your sense of touch! Do we have an understanding?!" The gang
nodded their heads as they ran away in fear. This might have made
them go away for the last time, Giz thought to himself until his
thoughts were interrupted from the pain in his leg. He grunted as
Azu helped him up, "How many times to I have to save you, Giz?"
Giz chuckled, "Hi there... Let's hope this is the last ti-
Agh!" he cried as he tripped over his own pain, falling into
Azurewrath's arms. She sighed, "Try to get up, let me help..."
Giz got up the best way he could. Azu then leaned in and
kissed him on the forehead. Giz blushed as he did her magic work
onto his body, and then the pain was gone as he felt something
tingle in his body. He stood up straight and cleared his throat,
"Thank you, Azu..." Azu made that smile that he loved to see from
Azu. That smile that made him know that Azu was alright with it,
that she would be happy to do it again some time. That stress
reliever he would die for. He would do anything to see that smile
for the rest of his life... and slowly... he came up with a
He walked home alone that night, with a smile.
Cocoh was not a sir, actually. He was built on Hobo 13 as a
training bot. Cocoh would be beat up by the players practicing in
the practice room of pain. Not ever, in all of his thirty years
of practicing with players, had he ever gotten a reward, had he
ever gotten a single hit on his opponent. He was a training dummy
that wasn't aloud to fight back. This was shortly after Zim beat
the Hobo 13 games.
But, this game, Cocoh felt like he might have been able to
win. Yes, he could talk, using a chip in his system. The system
had been broken so many times that the lab boys of Hobo 13
stopped fixing it, making Cocoh lose most of his senses. e could
still feel pain and speak, and see, but he couldn't smell and
taste or anything else. He felt hopeless inside his little robot
prison. If only he were real things might have been different for
him. But, again, he had a plan for fighting against the enemy
Cocoh found out that he had a weapon of his own. He was able
to shoot lasers out of his palms! He learned while he was alone
in the middle of the night, abandoned as usual in the practice
room of pain, to sleep and think about how many times he had
failed and what bone he might break tomorrow. He stood up and
pretended he was fighting someone. Until, when he stuck out his
palm, a laser shot right out of his hand! He grinned as he knew
what he would do when morning arrived...
And so the day came, the stinky sun rose and he felt ready
for his opponent to approach him. He made a stink eye at the
irken opponent (not Zim). The irken just shrugged and got out a
gun that Cocoh had never seen before. But, Cocoh still felt ready
to fight. Then, the bell rang, and the fight had begun. Cocoh
raised a palm and readied himself for shooting. Suddenly, right
as his laser came out, he was stunned by the opponents stun gun.
Cocoh fell to the floor, coughing up oil. He was hit right in the
chest, his system shutting down. He tried to call for mercy, but
he realized something...
He couldn't speak anymore...
Xio sat in Skool. He just tapped his finger against the desk,
kinda zoning off. Him being different from others. Xio just
thought and thought about what might happen in his future. What
would happen if others found out? So many what if questions
popped up in his head.
Xio came out of his dream land, "Yes, Ms. Bitters?"
"Pay more attention, fool! We were talking about doom!"
Xio saw Zim chuckle devilishly. He probably had a plan in his
dead. He then looked at Dib and saw him writing notes on Zim, why
he was acting weird. Dib smiled as he thought he was getting
somewhere. Xio shrugged. He knew the truth about Zim, he knew he
was Irken. It was so obvious, he actually went up to Zim and
asked if he needed a new disguise, a holographic one, and Zim
laughed, saying that he worked for Dib, trying to gather
STEEEEUUUPIDD information!!! Well, that was when he learned that
his disguise was a bit too god for an idiot like him. So, he gave
up on Zim and moved on with his life of curiosity.
When Xio was walking home, he saw Riz, panting, looking
tired. Xio kinda yelled out, "Hey, Riz? Why are you so-?" Xio
noticed that his pack was out, and a claw was readied. He heard
kids screaming and running away. Xio knew what Riz had just done.
Xio ran over to Riz as he heard sirens play in the distance.
Riz's disguise was about to come off, "RIZ, YOU IDIOT!!!" Riz
then gasped and looked behind himself seeing Xio trying to grab
him. Riz growled and smacked Xio with a different claw, letting
the rest of his disguise come off. Xio smacked against a brick
wall, landing in a puddle. Good thing his holographic disguise
was water-proof. Xio felt the sudden swelling up form on the back
of his head, as he watched Riz run away, climbing the town like a
spider. Xio had to do something about this, but how? Now he had
two problems to solve!
Giz sat at home, laying in bed, thinking about Azu's
beautiful eyes. He grinned as he imaged Azu loving him too, but
was it to be? Giz knew that he was the nerd of the planet, known
for nothing but being a geek. Giz just hopped he could find a way
to slip into her heart. Giz then turned his head and saw his pet,
Ash. Ash was a little green and red dragon. Whenever he breathed
through his nose, little sparks of flame would blow out, in a
cute and friendly way. That was why Giz adopted Ash. Gix then
looked back at the roof, thinking and dreaming. Ash then crawled
onto Giz's chest. Giz started to pet the back of Ash's head, "Oh,
Ash... What should I do?"
Ash curled up and relaxed, "Well, you could just ask her out"
Giz blushed and flinched, "It's not that easy, Ash! Do you really
think she'll just say yes, just like that?!" Ash chuckled,
"Honestly, I think it would. I mean, you guys have known each
other for some time now, and she obviously likes you..." Giz's
face was almost flushed in red, "Dammit, Ash! Whatever you
say...!" Giz said, trying to get back to sleep.
Giz had a dream that night of Azu and him being together,
finally. Giz just loved dreaming about that kind of stuff. He
always wanted the dream to happen for the rest of his life
because he knew that eventually the dream would end. Whenever he
would wake up, Giz would feel so alone. But, he did have
Ash, except he was only a pet.
Maybe Ash was right?
Giz looked at the phone beside him on his nightstand. He just
stared at it. What should he do about this? Giz just decided to
swoop the phone and get this crush over with. It's either have
his heart broken or go on a date. It was time to find out. Azu
managed to answer, "Hello, Zetrows speaking?" Giz frowned, "Uhh,
is Azu there?" Giz could hear Zetrows growl, "Yeah, just a
second..." Giz waited and waited and waited until Azu answered,
"H-Hello?" Giz chuckled a bit, "Who was that?" Azu felt
surprised, "Oh, Giz! Don't worry, it's only a giant dick walking
around my house named Zetrows. What is it you needed?" Giz's face
turned read right away, "I-I was wondering if you... wanted... to
meet up in the forest around 10:00 am?" Azu smiled, and Giz
could tell, "Hold on a sec. KIIAAAAA!!! (ow, ma face .D.) Yeah,
I'd love to!"
Giz smiled, "Yaay!!! Alright, see you then, gotta go!" Giz
fainted in excitement.
He just swooped around town like a freak. He used his claws
to climb around like a spider. He was almost unaware that he was
showing his true form to the whole town, maybe even the world.
Riz just laughed freakishly and looked at everyone below him,
screaming in fear. Riz loved to see everyone run in fear. It made
him feel stronger. Now, instead of him being afraid of everyone,
everyone was afraid of him! Success! Now everyone would bow to
him whenever he would say! He was the boss now! Why hadn't he
done this before? He should have done this the day he crashed
landed here, on this horrible planet Earth! It was his time to
Riz started looking around town for more people to terrorize
and ruin lives. He kinda crashed himself in front of people to
jump scare them, making them scream and cry. Riz laughed at their
struggle to stay safe. If the world decided to mess with him, he
would mess with the world! Riz just happily set buildings on fire
and such, striking fear into everyone around him. He then saw one
of the little brats that broke his arm. Riz growled and sped up
towards the punk, and landed right in front of him, and Riz
laughed, "Time to beg for mercy!!!" The kid cried out and
screamed horribly, and he screamed something as he started to run
in the other direction. What the kid said somehow stopped Riz in
his tracks. The kid said...
"YOU DIRTY BASTARDS!!! THAT'S WHAT YOU GET!!!
NEXT TIME, IT'S GONNA BE ALL THREE OF YOU, YOU
Riz realized something. Before, he was only a
target, someone to get picked on. Now, the bullies
before were the targets. Who was the bully?
Riz was the bully.
"SHIT!!! I'M SO-"
Riz was electrocuted and he passed out slowly...
Cocoh slowly woke up. He couldn't see much with all of these
snack wrappers in his face. Where was he? Snacks? He started to
dig himself through the garbage and he saw the surface. He was in
a dumpster, in Foodcourtia! He saw everything to restaurants and
more restaurants, ad everything to even more restaurants! Cocoh
then remembered what happened. He was defeated and lost his voice
chip. He couldn't talk anymore. I guess now that he was so
broken, he was thrown away and replaced by someone else as a
training bot. Cocoh sighed silently and slowly cried into his own
metal palms. This was his fate? Living in a dumpster? Cocoh was
pretty stuck too, he couldn't pull out the lower half of his
body. Great, he was gonna be stuck in a dumpster for the
rest of his life!
Then, someone came up to him. Someone blocked his view of one
of the restaurants. Cocoh looked up to see an irken, "Oh my, look
at you! Aren't you just the cutest thing?" Then, he was lifted
out of the garbage with struggle. The irken introduced himself,
"My name is Xio. Are you lost, little guy?" The bot nodded his
head. Xio smiled, "Don't worry, your coming home with me! I'll
take care of you!"
And so, Cocoh was brought back to his Earth base. This was
how Cocoh and Xio's bond began. Xio put in a new voice chip for
Cocoh, and Cocoh was so happy to hear his voice again, he
shrieked his glee and hugged Xio for one whole hour. Xio knew
that a friendship was already forming...
Xio busted into the house, passing by Cocoh as he was sitting
on the couch watching Angry Monkey (the seventh season). Cocoh
was alarmed by Xio's scurry to the hidden elevator, "Master,
what's wrong?" Xio input the secret code on the wall as the
elevator started to appear, "Riz has gone insane! I need to stop
him!" Suddenly, the news was put onto the television and it said,
"Breaking news! The alien has been stopped!" Cocoh
yelled out to Xio, "Master, I think they already stopped him!"
Xio ran over to the television screen, "WHAT? WHO DID?!"
"Once the FBI studies the alien, they will release info to us
once they made some discoveries."
"We took it down, and we are gonna be taking it in for
questioning. Were gonna have to do an autopsy after that."
"We are going to see if there are anymore of these creatures
on Earth with us once we scan the aliens DNA."
Xio then hopped right into the elevator, and Cocoh hopped in
with him, "What are we gonna do, sir?! We can't them them find
us! I don't wanna be asked questions!!!" Xio groaned, "Stupid
Riz! We're gonna break into the FBI's base and save Riz, then
think of a solution about the FBI trying to catch us." Cocoh felt
afraid, "Okay..." Xio pat his head as they entered the Ship
Decking Room. Xio hopped into one of his elite ships and zoomed
over to the FBI's base using his radar to find Riz. Xio growled,
"Why, Riz? Why?"
Giz walked around the forest in a casual outfit, not his
uniform. He just looked around for Azu, yet he couldn't find her
anywhere. He called out to her again, "AZU? HELLO?" Giz checked
the time again, 10:15 am. Did she not even come? Suddenly, he
heard rustling come from some bushes. Giz turned to look at the
bushes, and saw Azu emerge out of them, "Giz! Finally, I found
you!" Giz chuckled, "Why all the sudden does this forest seem
bigger than ever before?" Azu rolled her eyes, "That's a good
question, actually!" The two of them laughed for a bit and went
on a walk together around the forest. The two of them walked and
told jokes and gossiped a bit. Giz continued to walk with her
until Azu said something, "So, did you hear about the irken that
went crazy on the mysterious planet?"
Giz felt intrigued already, "So, the mysterious planet really
does exist?" Azu nodded her head, "Yep, they confirmed
it when Invader... what was it... Riz, or something?"
Giz then zoned out. He knew that name, Riz. Giz had a sudden
flashback of when he was only a toddler, and he could only go goo
goo and gaa gaa, he was playing with a kid named Riz, get could
tell from a name tag he remember seeing. The two babies saw a
mother pick them up and they both giggled and shrieked, "Mommy!"
Then Giz had a flashback of being told he had a lost brother.
No... Was it true? Was Riz his lost brother? He couldn't believe
it! This was his chance to find his brother! Giz unconsciously
interrupted Azu, "My brother is alive?"
Azu felt shocked somehow, "Brother? What do you mean?" Giz
leapt in glee, "Riz, my lost brother! I can reunite with him,
finally, haha! But, he's being arrested, you say?" Azu then
understood why he was so excited, "Well, yes, by something called
the FBI. They are gonna make an autopsy on him." Giz shrieked,
"Then I gotta go save him! Come with me and help him!" Azu sighed
sadly, "I can't. I have royal duties to attend to!" Giz growled,
"Darn! Well, if I don't come back safely, then here's this..."
Giz kissed Azu on the cheek. That was probably the bravest thing
he had ever done. Azu blushed and kissed him back, she couldn't
take the amazement. Now Giz's face was flushed red. Azu smiled,
"Now go save your brother!" Giz nodded his head and fluttered
away like a butterfly.
Aha! We've found the base! Xio said, starting to head towards
a giant grey cement building and landing on top of it. Xio
suddenly realized there was another irken ship on the roof, too!
He saw another irken crawl out of the ship as Xio crawled out of
his ship. Xio called out, "Hey, who are you?" Giz turned around
and saw the irken, "A-Are you Riz?" Xio seemed surprised, "No, my
name is Xio. Why do you wanna see Riz?" Giz replied, "He's gonna
be cut open, then all of the irkens might be exposed to the
humans and such! Also, Riz is my lost brother I've bee searching
for for years now!" Xio smiled and looked around the roof for
some kind of entrance, "Well, Riz is also my friend. We can save
him together!" Giz smiled with him, "Sounds like a plan, man!"
Cocoh then hopped out of the ship, "My name is Cocoh! I love
french fries!" Giz chuckled, "My name is Giz, and I like saving
Xio couldn't find any real entrances, so he just blew the
roof open with a bomb and used his tracker to find Riz, "Come on!
He's this way!" Giz ran with Xio, "Don't you think we could have
found a more hidden entrance?" Xio sighed, "Well, for starters,
that's not my style, and also, there were no secret entrances,
now let's get Riz outta here!" Giz rolled his eyes and followed
along with Xio." Alarms were going of, yet none of the FBI seemed
to be coming after them, until they took a turn to see the FBI
standing there, blocking their paths! Then, the chief yelled,
"FIRE!!!" Giz cried out, "AGH!!!" until Cocoh shot out lasers out
of his palms, putting the chief and the soldiers down on their
backs! Xio high-fived Cocoh, "Nice shot, buddy!" Giz peeked at
the tracker, "Hey! We're almost there! Come on!"
And so, the three of them kept on running together. It was
time to save Riz.
Xio busted the door open instead of hacking through it,
alarming the scientists and they paused from performing the
autopsy. Giz could see that the doctor's knife was only half an
inch from Riz's belly. Cocoh then shot at the scientists and
saved Riz from being cut open. Riz was also still knocked out.
Giz ran over to Riz and handed him to Xio, "Get him somewhere
safe, then call me over once this is over and you guys are safe!
I gotta get back home!" Xio nodded his head, "Right! Good luck,
Giz!" Giz ran out of the building, throwing a thumbs up at Xio,
And so, everyone escaped safely. Everyone lived a normal
life, except for Riz, in a way. Riz had to build himself a new
disguise from him being exposed while wearing it.
Everyone learned their lessons...
Riz learned that if he didn't keep his anger in, he would become
Giz learned that there was always someone there to help you when
you need most.
Cocoh learned that though he may not be perfect, someone would
always take care of him.
This is practically his life...
The life of an invader....
