"No hard feelings" is a very famous expression that fits well with what you say about SS Zelda.
Link knows that there were no bad intentions behind what she did. He accepted that and didn't let what she did to not even hurt him bother him.
Do you want to have someone who saved Link's life eat dirt just because she wanted him to win an important ceremony? She was looking out for him, and he did the same to her. I don't think you are understanding that
Even if she did change into a completely nice person later in the game, I still can't forgive her for pushing my fav. character link off a statue and lying to him that he can jump off the statue and then pushes him off. I hate liars and I hate people who do crazy, psychotic things like pushing people off of cliffs. So, yes, I hold a grudge to her because she is a pyschotic daughter of a hippopotamus who needs therapy and a good spanking.
Look at Link, for all his faults, he was a very gentle guy throughout the whole game with only a few sarcastic lines but he doesn't hurt a fly. He never meant to push anyone off cliffs and Zelda should've been like him.
And no, Zelda is not a bad girl, she's just mischievous in a way that is unacceptable for someone older than a ninth grader. It is not cute to play mischief on people anymore once you get into tenth grade, that's why I stopped pranking people in tenth grade because I was getting too old and it's not cute anymore, it's just silly and rude.
I would be happy to abuse and bully the girl even if she is friendly because I do not forgive her pushing link off a statue and lying to him. And I don't care if she is a really young girl, I would smack her across the face for jumping into a loftbird without regards for her safety and pushing link off a cliff, if I was Link, I would take my sword out and slash her for these crazy actions.
