Zelda’s Lullaby Ho-boy, Link thought, staring into Zelda’s face as she focused in on him. He gripped her hands a little tighter, fairly certain that just this once, he could get away with a visible breach in protocol. He could almost feel her terror envelop him: around them, he knew their audience certainly understood that the mood had suddenly and very harshly shifted, like a rope jerking back. “Your Highness,” he said, low and even, calm, just stay calm, “Zelda,…

Chapter 18: Uncloaked Gazing down into darkness, Deya and Avela stood on the precipice of an abyssal hole that seemed to be a gouge in the land itself. “Do you think he went down there?” Avela asked. Having followed the cloaked man from the Kara Kara Bazaar, past the bases of the Great Cliffs, and through a narrow, winding canyon, they had reached an impasse. To their right, a vacant inclined path circled up the sides of the pit. Directly…

Chapter Seventeen: A Moment’s Rest Zelda tried her hardest to keep her attention on Queen Lorisu and her words, but her mind wandered, as it tended to do in formal meetings.  Since she turned thirteen, she had been sitting at her father’s side during such diplomatic meetings, and often walked out with a perfect imprint of Impa’s knuckle in her upper arm.  But…she couldn’t help it. Formal meetings were just so boring. The Zora Queen was kind, and beautiful, and regal,…

Chapter 16: Reminders So this is the fabled Bank of Wishes.. Right now, I wish something would actually bite. Link sat down, cross-legged and tired as he held his fishing rod out over the river. The area was damp from a recent rainstorm, but the princess still insisted that he find food while she conversed with the Zoras. And she left to go see them without her appointed knight as chosen by her… His line tugged. Anxious that he finally…

Chapter 15: Reflection Deya stretched, popping several places in his back with a groan.  Something about the beds in every stable he had ever spent the night in made his body feel decades beyond its age.  Not exactly ideal for travel, and not even he could get completely used to it. Not to mention, the sounds of the horses and goats in their pens, and one random dog that jumped on his bed in the middle of the night and…

Chapter Fourteen: Interlude Zelda gave a soft, “hmm…” to herself as she took a large bite of her breakfast and marked the map with a large X.  Too bad, too. She wanted so badly for this place to work for her new town. Akkala had always felt so majestic, ever since she first visited at the age of seven.  Trees the colors of a brilliant sunset, lush greens and perfectly moderate temperatures. And brilliant storms that could awe and inspire…

Chapter Thirteen: Stepping Stones “So after everything, I’m here on a mission from Princess Zelda herself to find the cloaked man who assisted us,” Deya said, concluding his account to Avela and Rakumo of what had taken place over the last few months. They were seated in the woods next to the stable immediately outside Rito Village: Deya sitting on a log with Avela next to him, and Rakumo on a tree stump a few feet in front of them….

Chapter Twelve: The Taming of Epona Link swallowed. Hard. He and the Lon Lon’s runaway mare were surrounded and trapped. She was scared, snorting and trying to wiggle herself free of the rope snare around her back leg. Around them, staring and growling, five wolves looked hungry and ready to attack. He drew out his sword and shield, assuming a defensive stance, watching as they began to circle. Seconds felt like minutes as both sides waited for the other to…

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…
