|| Previous Chapter || Next Chapter || Chapter Eleven Link’s eyes began to flicker as his senses returned to him. He lay still for a bit, examining his surroundings as best as his field of view would allow. He gathered his strength, pushed himself up, and brought himself to a sitting position. Every muscle in his body was in agony. The trek through the desert had begun to take its toll. He wasn’t immobilized by any means, but there would surely…
