||  Previous Chapter  ||  Next Chapter  || “Are you feeling okay, Mr?” Nabooru shook me hard. My wrists gave a twinge as I prised my aching fingers off the penny whistle. The air was still now, the magical energy gone. “I just need a minute.” I felt as if I’d been run over by a herd of wild goats. Was this a side effect of the Song of Healing? “Ooofff!” Suddenly, I was assaulted by intense licking and sticky slobber. “Goodness, calm…

||  Previous Chapter  ||  Next Chapter  || Ah children, the gleaming light of Hyrule’s future. Finding wonder and delight in all the small things dismissed by adults. Learning from their mistakes and gaining key skills to make the world a better place. The red head paused to stick out her tongue out. “Hey, Mr, you still want this?” Between heaving breaths, two answers came to mind. The first: yes, you insufferable menace. The second? No thank you, I’d rather keep my head….

||  Previous Chapter  ||  Next Chapter  || Howling wind rattled blue stain glass windows. Above me, curtains of crimson velvet were draped from corner to corner and the sweet smell of burning incense pervaded the room. Where am I? I had to force my eyes to stay open as they clung to remnants of sleep.  My last memories were hazy but fraught. I remembered my journey atop one of those gigantic black beasts. Up there, it was a lot higher than the…

||  Previous Chapter  ||  Next Chapter  || I snapped at the reins, wishing that the slow driving horse called Toffee would transform into a wild, racing stallion. Sadly, I had to be careful not to tire the poor hackney out, otherwise we might not reach Lake Hylia at all. Except, it is so very difficult to remain calm with arrows whistling past your ears. Just ignore them, I told myself, until one embedded itself into the back of my seat. This,…

||  Part Thirty-Seven  ||  Part Thirty-Nine  || Part Thirty-Eight “Welcome to Kingdom Bay!” Osmond nodded to the young crier who stood atop a sign that read the very same as his proclamation. As the two horses slowly trotted into the town, a flurry of sensations swept over the travelers. The smell of the salt ocean clung to everything but most of all the cold breeze that sliced through the streets. Hollers from sailors to dockworkers in various tongues rose over…

||  Part Thirty-Six  ||  Part Thirty-Eight  || Part Thirty-Seven As the sun breeched the walls of the North Castle, it found the isolated fortress significantly less filled than before. The generals and their forces had departed. Impa had vanished before the previous night fell. Osmond, Fado, and the Princess were departing for Kingdom Bay. Of the few remaining residents, King Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule felt the emptiness the most. He stood in a tower window that overlooked the bridge and let…

||  Part Thirty-Five  ||  Part Thirty-Seven  || Part Thirty-Six The page’s hand shook as he filled the goblet before him. “What’s the matter?” Daphnes grumbled, motioning with the cup. “N-nothing, Your Majesty.” The king took the bottle from the servant and sloshed it into the cup on his own. “If yer scared, then begone! I’ll pour my own damn wine.” As Daphnes greedily poured the chalice down his gullet, the other members in his court looked at him with unease….

||  Part Thirty-Four  ||  Part Thirty-Six  || Part Thirty-Five A fresh log crackled in the fireplace. Zelda was asleep in the bed, covered in a warm blanket and shadows from the dancing flames. Osmond smiled as he looked at her and slipped his arms into the sleeves of his shirt. She stirred a bit as he slipped his boots on, failing in his attempt to be silent. “What’s the matter?” she asked, trying to force her eyes open. “It’s nothing,…

||  Part Thirty-Three  ||  Part Thirty-Five  || Part Thirty-Four “What’ll it be, honey?” a portly bartender asked, swabbing the bottom of a cloudy glass with a filthy rag. “Ale,” the hooded traveler replied. “Don’t see many travelers alone these days,” she remarked, turning to the keg mounted on the back counter. “Where ya headed?” “I’m meeting somebody.” She nodded, sticking her lip out, “Course ya are. That wasn’t the question though. I asked where you was headed.” The traveler remained…

|| Previous Chapter || Next Chapter || Chapter Fourteen Fortune smiled on the party, as they were able to sleep through an uneventful night. This was no small comfort to each of them given their prior ordeals. Link immediately recognized the aches in his body, a result of over-exertion, but persevered through them, telling himself they were only signs of his body becoming stronger and more able to keep up with the tasks that were sure to come. He looked to his…
