Chapter Eleven: The Search Begins Zelda spoke gentle coos to the mare while Rylan fitted her with the gear of a royal mount.  The mare tossed her velvet black head with a snort as the cream-and-brown saddle came down on her back. “Have you decided on a name for her, Your Highness?” Rylan’s voice, a deep contralto unbefitting of her small, quick form, seemed to resonate from within her chest.  The guard could certainly captivate attention with the simplest of…

Chapter Ten: Reminiscing Deya shivered, pulling his cloak tighter around him as he rode through the Southern Tabantha Snowfields. The blizzard pretty well hindered his vision, though he could still see occasional groups of pine trees on all sides. The silver of the sky and the white of the ice and snow all around him seemed to mix into a bright frosty chrome scene. Mountainous, icy scenery before him heaved up and down as he bounced along on his horse….

Chapter Nine: The Informal Oath Zelda counted the stars, five to the left, three down, to find the constellation she sought.  After a moment more of squinting, lines drew themselves between seven random celestial bodies, and she could vaguely make out the Sheikah Eye.  It took some imagination, or perhaps the lost, directionless mind of a seafarer, but she could kind of understand where the connection lay. Of course, she admitted to herself, picking out patterns in stars might have…

Chapter Eight: Blind Wisdom Zelda set down her utensils with a loud clink!  Were she not so famished, her apetite might have been ruined, but her stomach protested her negligence loudly as she stared across the table, wide-eyed, holding her tongue from saying exactly what she thought of her father’s repeated question. “I have already explained myself and my proposed solutions to you.”  She sat back in her chair, blinking into his wrinkled face and identical green eyes.  “Twice.” “Then…

Chapter Seven: Aftermath “Link, get up.” Link opened his eyes. He found himself lying on his back in the middle of a void. He stood up, noting that the pain he felt when his arm broke was gone and that the arm itself was completely healed. His guard outfit wasn’t stained with dirt and dust, and it didn’t show any signs he was in a fight. He could perfectly see everything he was wearing, almost as if there was light all…

Chapter Six: Caravan of the Lost   “So, will you truly say nothing, then?” Zelda’s current horse, pulled from a barn just outside Ordon, tossed her head.  Zelda patted her onyx mane soothingly. “Now, now. Nearly there.” The horse snorted, then calmed once more. The villagers had told her that the mare was not used to riders.  She was relatively young still, with a wild temperament. A few had even tried to talk Zelda out of taking her, insisting she…

Chapter 5: The Mark of a Hero Deya struggled to maintain a steady head as his mind melted in a state of stress and panic. His world was burning – literally. Forget the attack on Ordon village the previous night; this attack was the real deal. His nose burned with the intense heat of the holocaust that was consuming the home he had known for only a few months, and the smells of smoke, of blood, of total destruction. As…

Chapter Four: Let the Games Begin “You’re going to be ok, right?” Kaden asked, standing on tiptoes to see over the stands. Link smiled and gave a thumbs up.  “One way or another.” “Do you want my pendant?  It might help…” Link chuckled. “I’m not scared. I’m just nervous. You know I’ve been preparing for this day. Besides,” he raised his hand over his mouth, “I think the others need it more than I do.” He subtly motioned to the…

Chapter Three: Calm Deya wiped his brow. It had been a long night, and there was a lot of work ahead of him. The guards of the town and the soldiers that had traveled with the princess had placed orders from his master – the local blacksmith – for replacements for the weapons that had been broken in the attack.  They also sought extra weapons, just in case. Not wanting to take any more chances, especially with a member of…

Chapter Two: A Voice in the Dark “Link… Link, wake up” Who… Who’s there? Link shifted, reacting and recognizing the voice. Kaden? “Link, wake up! There’s something out there and I’m scared..” He woke up, squinting his eyes as he did, to see Kaden. “What’s wrong…?” At that moment, his eyes widened, seeing Kaden filled with fear, clutching the pendent around his neck. “I think I heard your friends yelling.” “Yelling…?” Kaden glanced fearfully out the window.  “There’s an attack….
