Fierce Deity Link shot another
fireball at Majora. Another hit! This is so easy, he thought and he shot
another fireball. Majora exploded. Fierce Deity Link pulled off his mask
to reveal himself as a ten-year-old boy. He wiped the sweat from his forehead
and began rummaging through his pockets. He pulled out a bottle of fresh
spring water. Link took one big gulp of water and wiped his mouth. He took
another gulp and finished his drink. He stepped into a circle of blue light
and was transported back to Termina field. It's finally over! Link thought.
He pulled out his ocarina and called Epona. The little filly came running
and licked Link's face. Link mounted onto Epona and rode back to Clock
In town, people came running over to Link. The
postman, the mayor, Anju, the bartender and even the carpenters were there
to thank Link with open arms.
That night at the milk bar, every townsperson
came to celebrate Link's victory. The Indigo-gos played songs while everyone
danced and drank milk. Pamela's father was discussing something with the
man from the observatory, while Jim chatted with Romani.
After much partying, Link decided to go home.
He got on Epona and rode to the Clock Tower. Inside, the Happy Mask Salesman
greeted Link. "Did you get the mask back?" he asked. Link nodded and gave
him Majora's Mask. "Mmm...good, lots of courage you must have! And that
I shall reward!" said the Happy Mask Salesman. Link and Epona were lifted
off the ground and were caught in a vortex. The next thing they knew, they
were back in the Lost Woods. Link breathed a sigh of relief and headed
home to Kokiri Forest to rest. He was very tired and needed a good amount
of sleep. For tomorrow he would regain he manhood.
Princess Zelda was daydreaming in the castle
courtyard. She was concerned about her friend, Link. He had gone to look
for Navi, his fairy partner. A tear rolled down her cheek. "Oh, Link, where
are you?" she whispered.
Link was getting ready for bed. He pulled off
his tunic and cap and pulled on a green nightshirt. He wriggled under his
blanket and blew out his candle. As he rested his head on his pillow, he
knew that he would have the best sleep he would ever have in a life time.....
"Link! Link! Link!"chanted the crowd of Hylians,
Gorons, Zoras, Kokiri and Gerudos. Princess Zelda and Link were standing
were standing on the steps in the Temple of Time. Zelda put the ocarina
to her lips and started to play the Song of Time. Link began to change.
He was a man again- and Zelda was a full-grown woman. She began to lean
closer and closer to Link and then...
"HEY!" yelled a voice that sounded very familiar.
Link jumped out of bed and stood in a fighting position, holding out his
fists. "Ha ha he!" said the voice, "no need to fight me. I'm Navi, remember?"
Link became calm and grinned sheepishly.
"O-of c-course I r-remember you," Link stammered.
He had never been much for words. The only words that he was used to saying
were: Yes, no and OK. Although he knew other words that he had secretly
learned from other people when they talked to him.
Link put his tunic, cap and boots back on and
walked outside. The Kokiri were crowded around his treehouse- even Mido
and Saria. Link climbed down and hugged Saria. "Did you miss me?" asked
"Yes!" answered Link. He was glad that she had
asked a simple question, because he was Hero of Time and the questions
of the other Kokiri were much harder to explain.
Zelda sat in the courtyard, still waiting for
Link. She knew Link would come back. More tears pelted her cheeks. "Oh
Link!" she sobbed. "I want you to come back!"
Impa walked into the courtyard. "Zelda, what's
wrong?" she asked.
"It's Link. I know he'll come back, but I just
don't know when! It's been such a long time!" explained the weeping princess.
Impa patted Zelda's back.
"Link's coming to the castle today. He sent Navi
to deliver this letter," she said, handing Zelda the letter. Zelda read
it and her eyes cleared up at once.
"Tell the guards to not throw out a boy wearing
green clothes and carrying a sword and shield," said Zelda.
"Don't worry, I've already done that," said Impa,
smiling. But just then, an evil man flew into the courtyard.
Link was riding Epona through Hyrule Field. He
was going to take her back to Lon Lon Ranch. At the ranch, Malon was singing
her song. "Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo," she sang. Link galloped into the corral.
"Hey Link! Where have you been?" asked Malon.
"Lost Woods!" said Link proudly.
"Have you come to give back Epona?"
"Was she well behaved?"
Malon hugged Link. "Bye Malon!" said Link.
Boy oh boy! I can't wait to be a man again!"
thought Link. As he walked through the market, people ran up to him
and shook his hand. Link had to squeeze through the crowd to make it to
Hyrule Castle. Suddenly, a scream came from castle's direction! Link ran
into the towering fortress and gasped in horror at what he found.
Ganondorf had Princess Zelda trapped inside a
pink crystal. "Gimme the Triforce!" he ordered. Link drew his Kokiri sword
and Hero's shield.
"Ganondorf l-leave her a-alone!" commanded Link.
Ganondorf grinned evilly. He drew his own sword. It was brown and the blade
was chipped and battle-worn. Gerudo markings were engraved on it.
"Hee hee hee hee hee!" laughed Ganondorf. The
whole courtyard turned black and dead. Impa and Zelda disappeared. Link
gazed up at his foe. Would he have enough strength to defeat his nemesis?
Ganondorf lifted his gigantic foot to kick Link
in the chest. Link blocked his enemy's foot with his shield but was pushed
backwards. Ganondorf cut open Link's arm with his sword, causing his sword
to be covered with blood. "AAGG!" screamed Link. He flung his shield off
and held his wounded arm in agony. The shield hit Ganondorf's head, making
him bleed. Ganondorf fell to the ground. Link looked over his shoulder
and rushed over to the monstrous man. He sliced open Ganon's chest and
saw the opportunity to stab his heart. Just as he raised his blade, Ganondorf
grabbed it out of Link's hands and threw it. When it landed, it broke in
half. Ganondorf punched Link in the stomach. Link punched Ganondorf's lip.
Ganondorf held his aching mouth. "My jaw's broken!" he screamed. Using
the distraction, Link ran around Ganondorf and grabbed the top half of
his blade. He threw it in Ganondorf's back. Ganondorf fell to the floor
and breathed his last.
"Link! Link! Link!" chanted the crowd of Hylians,
Gorons, Zoras, Kokiri and Gerudo. Zelda was beside Link. They were behind
the altar in the Temple of Time. This is just like in my dream! thought
Link. Zelda put the Ocarina of Time to her lips and played the Song of
Time. A beam of white light appeared. When it cleared, Link and Zelda were
no longer children. They were adults. Link had his old Master Sword and
Hylian Shield back! Then he saw Zelda. She had her arms around his neck
and was leaning closer until they kissed. And this time, there was no Navi
to stop them.
Note: The fight between Ganondorf and Link was inspired by the old demo
of Gamecube Zelda. I give full credit to Nintendo for that. I wrote this
story two years ago, and I also thank my sister for encouraging me to finally
