He gently rose up, shielding his eyes from the early
morning sun just rising above the horizon. Another day, another
chance to decide, thought Link as he got out of his bed to stretch.
He had been tormented by his feelings of longing and want of the three
girls of his dream, for seven long years. Ever since his journey
through time, he had realized his feeling for each of them, but just couldn't
decide whom he would spend eternity with. He retained his adult mentality
when Princess Zelda had sent him back to live his lost childhood.
At first he was happy that he was a kid again and just dismissed his memories
of the future as just a horrible dream. Till he saw the husk of the
dead Great Deku Tree, it was then that he noticed that none of the other
Kokiri had been making fun of him like they usually did. This was when
reality had sunk in, that what he did was for real. He had also realized
that Saria had become even more distant,
because he had not returned any of the affection that she had shown
him in all this time.
He decided that day to let her know how he felt
about her too. Being a kid with an adult mind, he sometimes could've
kicked himself for not realizing some of the most obvious things, this
among them. He found Saria sitting on her stump in the Sacred Forest
Meadow, getting nervous as he approached. Link was silent due to his future
training in the Gerudo Fortress; it wasn't till he was standing in front
of her that Saria noticed heavy breathing in front of her. Startled
as she looked up to see who had sneaked up on her, to her relief it was
only Link. Link could see the relief in her eyes and, curiosity of
why he had come.
Taking the initiative Link spoke. "Saria.. sorry
if I startled you," he said in an amused voice that earned him a playful,
scornful glare. "I came to talk to you." He paused to let how he
said that sink in. "I know that you have been... friendly towards me, trying
to show me how much you truly cared for me." Another pause, as she look
on at him in a hopeful gaze. "It has taken me a while to piece it together,
and to realize my own feelings for you." He let out a sigh, and was visibly
trying to work up the courage to say what she was hoping that he was going
to. "Saria. I think that I..." Another pause, "That I... love you
too." She was as happy as she was floored that he admitted what she had
been waiting for so long to hear. She got up and slowly walked towards
him, eyeing him. This was making him nervous, it was bad enough to see
her feelings hurt, but what she must be thinking now, he was wondering
if she thought him a funny child to admit that he loved her.
"Oh, Link you have no idea how long I've been waiting
to hear you say that," she said as she wrapped her arms around him.
Link came out of his flashback. That was nearly
seven years ago, since then he has also realized that he held a flame for
Princess Zelda and Malon as well.
Each day that goes by he struggles to figure out which one he loves
more. To make matters worse, he has found that Princess Ruto of the
Zoras also had a crush on him. He has been searching for some way
to tell her that he wasn't quite interested in her; he had given back the
Zora's Sapphire to her father, but he kept the knowledge from her, the
Link kid was the only thing that really brightened her moods.
When Link found out that the King Zora didn't tell his daughter of Link's
returning of the spiritual stone, the king beseeched him to play along
for the time being, till she would grow out of her phase. He told
Link that when he wasn't there that his daughter would always be depressed.
King Zora admitted that when Link gave back the stone he understood why,
but he couldn't bring himself to see his daughter unhappy if there was
something that he could do about it. So he played along at the King
of the Zoras request.
Over time he'd gotten the feeling that Ruto knew
that he didn't love her back the way she loved him, but she never told
him if she did. This was another thing he always thought he would
do that day, but when it came time to see her, he had gotten to know her
as a good and dear friend, and now even, he couldn't bring himself to tell
her how he truly felt. Even though he had ended up in some awkward
situations with her, it took all of his will power not to crush her like
that. Sometimes he would swear that if he didn't know better, he may have
actually been falling for her. When he thought of that he reminded
himself that he had three other girls he was trying to decide on; he didn't
need to add another to his list of problems.
Link sighed aloud, as he walked around his room
getting dressed for the day; he always got depressed when he thought about
all of this, how could he decide which one to choose? Saria certainly
didn't help his problem when he noticed that she too was growing older
as he did. Her beauty grew with her, and she retained her childlike
attitude the she had, ever since he could remember her. Link's thoughts
were diverted for a moment as he thought about her hair, how it was long,
past her shoulders, green as ever, and smooth as silk, likes Zelda's hair.
He had always thought that Saria had to have been dyeing her hair, after
all who had natural green hair? Alas, even that diversion didn't
last long as he thought about Zelda, and Malon, and their hair. Each different
and unique in their own ways. Malon's hair glittered in the sun when
it hit it just right. Zelda's hair sparkled like gold no matter where she
was or what time of day. Saria's hair had its own way of catching
the sun's rays, that he just couldn't describe.
He even noticed that in a way Princess Ruto's head
acted as if it were hair when the two played in Lord Jabu-Jabu's fountain,
it actually had a sparkle to it
when she was it the water, in the light of the sun or under the glow
of the moon. Ruto again, he let out a shiver, how would he be able
to tell her that he can't
marry her, if he was truly was falling for her too? Link shivered again,
he didn't like that thought, so he pushed all of the thoughts away, and
said to himself, "Time to go gather breakfast, maybe I can sort this out
Chapter Two: It Is Decided
The sun had yet to rise. Good, she thought,
should still be asleep. With the quietest steps she could manage she
quickly walked through the Kokiri forest, past all the sleeping kids.
She climbed the vines and entered the Lost Woods. There she broke
into a sprint, running through the woods to the entrance that lead to the
Gorons' city. The girl stopped to catch her breath, and waited for
something, she sat down and tried to meditate. She found this to help her
relax and pass time. Just then she heard voices coming from the hallway.
She looked up real quick, and spotted two others coming out of the darkened
pathway. "I don't understand why the tunnel is so dark, why won't they
just light it up some? It would keep people from tripping over things
in the dark," said one voice as the two emerged; they shielded their
eyes from the rising sun.
"What I want to know is why we had to get up so
early to come here, and why we couldn't just come in through the Kokiri
forest," said the other one as they stopped by the girl sitting on the
grass, just breathing in, and breathing out. "Well Saria, are you going
to tell us, or do we have to guess?" the first one asked the girl sitting
on the grass. Saria just looked at them as she got up, and motioned
them to follow her, as she went to the next area. She stood by the
small pond, and again she waited. The other girls were getting antsy.
"Saria, why don't you just tell us why you called
us here so we can get back. It isn't like I told my father that I
was going somewhere this morning. If I
don't get back in time he may have the whole kingdom looking for me,"
spoke the second girl.
"Princess, you know that when she is like this you
won't get any information out of her by pleading. You got to get
on her nerves till she is willing to talk. You done it before, try it again,
then maybe we all can go home," the first girl chimed in.
"I'm not spoiled," said the Princess defensively.
"I'm just used to people doing what I ask for them to do," she stated in
a matter-of-fact voice. "If I wanted to, I could just order you to
return home right now Malon, but I've agreed to let all of us meet.
I just don't know who the other one is," she spoke in her royal voice.
"I called us together to talk about Link," Saria
broke the argument between the two. "We are just waiting for Princess Ruto
to show up. She has just as much right to be in our discussion as
the rest of us. As for why so early, Link doesn't get up till the
sun rises," she said as she pointed to the horizon. "This way we can avoid
Link and talk amongst ourselves. Hopefully like civilized people
and not children," Sshe said as she looked at the two who were quarreling.
The only response she got were two tongues sticking out at her. Saria just
rolled her eyes and brought her attention back to the pool, just then some
air bubbles floated up, then out popped Princess Ruto's head.
"Hope I'm not late," she said questioningly.
"No you're not late, these two were just arguing
to pass the time," Saria cut in before the other two could answer, as she
pointed to the two behind her. The two girls just folded their arms over
their chest and gave a clear "Humph."
Saria wasted no time in taking them through the
Lost Woods and into the Sacred Forest Meadow. They were early enough
to slip past the sleeping deku scrubs. Once in the clearing before the
Forest Temple, the four girls sat in a circle around the pad in the ground
there. None of them knew what these pads were, just that they were
almost everywhere. Saria spoke first. "I've called the four of us
here because of what we have in common: Link. We all love him and wish
that he would choose one of us; and for the most part he loves all of us.
Sorry Ruto, but you knew that. There is good news for you though, it seems
that Link may actually be considering you among his troubles, namely choosing
one of us to be with." With that Ruto perked right up, and seemed
to beam with a sort of pride.
As the other two just look at Saria and Ruto, then
stated in unison, "What do you mean that he may be considering her?
How would you know how he feels?" Ruto merely stuck her tongue out
at them and they returned the favor. Saria let out a sigh.
"I know how he feels because I'm the one he is around
the most and because I was his friend before, he lets me know of his dilemmas.
He tries not to hurt my feelings by talking about any of you, but he has
feeling for all of us, and their tearing him apart. Sometimes the results
are funny." She chuckles as she
thinks of some things Link has done over the years worrying about his
problem. "But as of late, it is making him depressed that he can't choose
His feelings and emotions are genuine towards all of us, but he can't
just pick one of us and let the other feelings go," Saria says with and
edge of sadness in
her voice. The others pick up on it and realize what she means.
Then Saria chuckles again and says, "He has even told me that he has considered
marrying all of us to settle the problem and his sense of loyalties."
This got a slight chuckle out of all of them.
Zelda spoke next on the subject just presented,
"While it may help Link, and if it would I think I may agree to put up
with all of you, the problem would mostly be my father. He wouldn't
approve of me going into such a marriage, besides I think we all can agree
that each of us would rather have him to ourselves." This got a small
contented sigh from the rest of the group as they visualized themselves
Ruto spoke this time. "So what are we going to do,
it isn't like we can just walk up to him and tell him to choose.
As it is, even I know that the chances would lie in Saria's favor, her
being his closest friend and first one to admit that he loved. To
add to the problem she has even grown older with him so he knows all of
her past and none of ours, just what time he spent with us. So it
wouldn't be fair to him or to us if we did that." This got Princess
Zelda and Malon thinking, she is right, he would choose Saria because
he knows her better. Both showed their disappointment upon realizing
that Ruto had a point.
To everyone's surprise Saria spoke again, "Now for
the reason of this meeting. I realized this to, so to be fair I thought
that we would give him time to get
to know all of us, a little more personally. We each get a day
alone with him, just one of us, and him. To let him know what he
would be getting into. It will
hopefully be enough, I thought about it and I confident that one day
alone, to let him see our more personal side, would be enough to help.
No one else,
just the two, alone, and we agree to do pretty much anything that he
would like, as we would deem it fit to do for him." The others looked
wide-eyed at her as they realized what she had just proposed. They
all put on a big devious grin.
Then the others noticed Malon's thoughtful and embarrassed
face, looking to her to say what she was thinking. She however, didn't
notice them, but
started to talk anyways. "What about our... integrity? I mean..." She
stopped as she looked up to see all eyes focused on her. She blushed
slightly as she
continued, "We can't just give our whole selves over to him, can we?
If he doesn't choose us, then what could we say to those that we would
others continued to stare at her as they thought about this.
Ruto spoke up, and startled the others back to reality.
"So it is agreed we do as he please, but we retain
The others nodded and all departed, slipping by
the last two sleeping deku scrubs to climb the ladder. So as not
to risk getting hurt by any awakened scrub.
Chapter Three: Saria's Turn
Link was sitting by the secluded pond that he found
when he was with Saria one time, eating the breakfast that he had gathered
on his journey there. He watched the kettle as the water he was boiling
was starting to bubble. Every since he got back from his journey
through time he had always taken the precaution of boiling any water from
a natural source. Even he didn't know why, but he was nonetheless
wary about drinking water otherwise. When the water started to boil
Link got out two cloths and picked up the kettle and lowered onto the little
submerged ramp he built a while back. He heard the instant sizzle of the
pond water as the hot iron surface of the kettle broke the gentle reflection.
His gaze turned back to the path that he had walked this morning.
He noticed some fresh tracks this morning, first one running, and then
joined by a few more as they progressed. The tracks led away from
his spot, but he didn't like the idea that someone may come up behind him
and interrupt his thinking.
Link always looked forward for this moment, in the
morning under the rising sun as he saw another day rising into the sky.
He would reflect on what mattered most to him in his life, and of which,
did the girls he loved exhibit the most. His mind already had its subject,
their hair. He had been reminiscing, about the most fascinating moments
of all of them. First Saria, her hair as he thought earlier always
had its way of bringing out the beauty of the morning. He
could remember the simpler days that he and she would gaze at the stars
all night only to awaken in the morning by the early sun. How, no
distance she put between him and her, she found her way by his side
by morning. He would awaken and start to stretch, when he would notice
extra weight on his arm. He would look over and down and there she
was, snuggled against him.
Her arm lightly draped across his chest, looking
so peaceful, and the way the morning sun glistened off her hair, even if
a trifle ruffled. Just then, she
would always wake up, slightly embarrassed, she always used the excuse
that she must have been cold during the night. He would always assure her
that it didn't matter. Sometimes he made a joke out of it and tell
her it wouldn't of mattered if she decided to sleep on top of him during
the night, just as long as she kept her hair out of his face so he could
breathe. She would give him a playful punch to the shoulder and say
in her coy voice, "Oh Link, you're terrible. I will at least retain my
dignity." The two would always laugh at her statement. Oh how he longed
for those simpler nights.
His thoughts drifted to Malon, for they too shared
nights out under the sky. These nights they would spend long hours
gazing across the starlit sky, just
telling each other about fantasies of far away adventures in some other
world. They would always try to make it back to either the house
or the bunk in
the tower, where Link was usually assigned to sleep when he stayed.
No matter what though, the two would always fall asleep just trying to
get there. After a few times they took blankets and pillows with
them just in case they didn't make it again, and sure enough, they returned
the next morning with the pillows ruffled and the blankets refolded after
apparent use. Talon never says anything because he knows that Link
wouldn't let it go too far, till the right time. Again, Link thought
about how Malon's hair struck him in the morning.
No matter where they fall asleep on Lon Lon Ranch,
in the morning Malon's hair almost always finds a new way to dazzle him
when he wakes up. He would wake up and instantly become aware of
her head on his chest, nestled into the dip between his arm and chest.
Her arm too would be draped across his chest, at some points he would ask
himself what was it that made the ladies do that with him. He would
just lay there and study her hair as the morning sun glistens off of it,
each move of his head showed a different spectacle as he watched her body
rise and fall with each breath she took. He would always wake her
up gently by softly stroking her hair; it would feel so smooth, never tangled.
The length of it had always fascinated him, she always kept it about the
length of her waist, or what he presumed to be her waist, from where he
would pick here up and twirl her around. Talon would always watch
him whenever he came to the ranch; he suspected that Talon still didn't
trust him to keep his hands to himself. To allay his fears, Link
often offered to help around the farm. By the end of the day he always
found it surprising that he still had the energy to sit up most of the
night with Malon to look at the stars.
The stars, they held a great mystery that he shared
his fascination with a lot of people. Princess Zelda, for example,
she has an equal fascination with them.
The two of us would just stare at them for hours, never tiring.
She has even let me look through something of hers that she called
a telescope. It showed me that the stars were round things that seem
to hang in the night sky. She told me that the round things were
called planets, and each one had a name. She told me that she didn't like
the names that she was told so she made some up for them. One that
she had me look at was huge; it almost covered the entire view of the telescope.
She said that she calls that one "Big Red" because of the red tint it had
to it. It took me a minute to see what she was talking about. The
most fun we had was just staring up at the stars, lying there on the ground
in the castle courtyard, amongst all the flowers. The scent of the
Zelda's perfume would fill the air in the spring. We would fall
asleep dreaming about life on those other planets, and wondering if anyone
on one of those
planets were doing the same. In the morning I would find her
stirring a bit as she lays her head on my shoulder and chest. Her
arm hooked up with her hand
around my neck. The hair strikes me the most in this scene, the
sun just rising above the castle walls, striking her silken, golden, hair
just so. It just seems like her hair was a gifts from the gods, as
she lies there peacefully, till she is awakened. The perfect view
of her hair is replaced with her warm smile as she looks up at me, and
just snuggles in closer to me. She never has made an excuse, she just takes
it for granted, and me, well I don't complain, but it does bother me that
I could never figure out what it is that wakes her. She won't tell
me either, she just smiles, and says, "Guess you will never find out, hmm?"
Even when she is awake her hair still looks like
a slice of heaven sent down for all to see. When we are awake, her attendant,
Impa, makes sure that we stay a respectable distance away from each other.
She rarely even lets Zelda kiss me on the cheek when I have to leave.
When I have to leave, oh how my heart aches when I have to leave any of
The weirdest of all things, I think that I may be
gaining feelings for Ruto too. We have fun playing in Jabu-Jabu's
Fountain till the wee hours of the night, but we have never stayed out
in the open. She would always take me to her room, once in there
I would always turn my head out of respect and instinct, she always laughs
at that gesture. Sometimes she would even play a joke on that, as
she reminds me that Zoras don't change clothes to sleep in, she would use
her arms to cover her chest and her hand to cover lower. I would see just
enough of her doing that to turn back around. She would always get
a laugh out of that. Even if it upsets me some, I've grown to be able to
laugh at that too.
After the first time that I had to spend the night
she had another bed put in for me. She had her elegant rock bed to lie
on, with a small water current gently running over the top. I will always
be amazed at how they make pillows that don't absorb the water but still
are comfortable. Every morning I wake up, in there, to find Ruto sleeping
in the bed with me. It has a steady drip from the ceiling just beside my
legs if I lay on my side, but it forms a nice and damp pool in the bed.
The Zora tunics that the king had made for me to wear keep me nice and
dry. Still I'm just as shocked that she comes over to sleep with
me in this bed, as I was the first time it happened. The first time
I spent the night and slept on the new bed. I'm always facing the
wall, the only way I can go to sleep comfortably, and I turn around to
check on Ruto, expecting her to be in her own bed. Only to find her
snuggle into my back and her arm draped over me. It is a sight that always
startles me, and subsequently wakes Ruto from her deep, peaceful slumber.
Lately however, it doesn't startle me as much as it used to so I have time
to see her damp forehead in the light glow in the room. Her skin
gives it just the right color and for a moment I would swear that I was
seeing someone's hair. As a matted glaze bounces of the skin it gives
it a look of wet hair shining in a blue light. Each time it takes
longer to realize that it is just Ruto's damp skin reflecting light, and
this is what startles me the most, when I come back to reality and, again
she is awakened. She would always give a contented smile and hug
me closer and at first when she did that I had to fight the urge to try
and break free. Now I just count the seconds till she releases me.
I think I have noticed that they are getting longer. Sometimes I
wonder what it is that draws girls to me, whether I'm sleeping or running
away from a small group that I bump into at the market. All of which
are looking for a potential husband.
I have come to regard Ruto as a friend, and it is
now harder than ever to tell her my true feelings, especially since I think
that my true feelings may be
changing. Huh, what was that? Link thought as his
attention was brought back to reality by a twig snapping. Link stealthily
gets up and hides behind
some nearby bushes. He watches for any sign of someone approaching.
Then he fells a soft touch on his shoulder, and slowly looks down to confirm
someone else's hand was there. A soft voice says rather playfully,
Link's shoulders slump, as he realized that he let
his best friend sneak up on him and corner him. Saria notices the look
on his face and asks merrily,
"What are you thinking about that took all of your attention?
That's the only way I could have done this so easily." She kidded him making
him frown even more. Her face turns to an almost pitiful, sorrowful
look as she says in her sweetest baby voice, "Ah, did I upset my wittle
precious?" She followed Link back to his spot and seemed to be thoughtful
for a second. She then exclaimed something that struck Link as weird, or
contradictive of her normal behavior, "I know. I can do something
for you, something that should cheer you up." She flashed a grin and ran
behind a big boulder. Link could have sworn that it was a mischievious
grin. Next he noticed that she was moving around a lot behind the boulder,
she ducked for a second and came back up. Was it his imagination,
or did he just see bare shoulders? Naw, she wouldn't do something
like that, unless she ate something that would make her go a little crazy,
he'd seen other Kokiri eat strange food from the Forest before and get
sick after acting weird. Surely Saria would know better than to eat
something that she didn't know what it was. She turned her head towards
Link and yelled a little, "Are you ready, 'cause here I go." With that
Link saw a streak of flesh run to the water and dive in. She didn't
even attempt to cover her body. He was floored; he didn't know what
to make of what had just happened.
Chapter Four: Her Day To Shine
Saria burst through the water's surface, grinning,
as she saw Link's expression. She had wanted to surprise him, and
this was the only way that she could think of right off hand. With
only her head above the water's surface she called out to Link. "What is
the matter Link? Surprised to see 'me'? Don't tell me that that didn't
cheer you up. I can see the look in your eyes from here, you liked
what you saw."
He wanted to say back that he was more surprised
than she might imagine, and that the "look" in his eyes was from seeing
her hair. Her wet, matted green hair had taken on an emerald color,
one that truly flattered her. With her hair let loose to flow it
truly made her look beautiful. Link didn't answer Saria, he just
kept his look of surprise on his face. He really didn't see all that
much of her when she ran to the water. With her distance in the water,
the image portrayed was more that of two long voluptuous legs attached
to a scrunched up body with short arms, and a big, exquisite head. Saria
felt the need to further tease him.
"Why don't come on in Link, the water is fine. I
won't mind seeing any more of you." She giggled aloud, with a coy look
on her face. Link however, wasn't too sure that she had truly taken
everything off, and was slowly edging toward the boulder, keeping
his eyes fixated on the strange sight in the middle of the water.
Saria saw his questioning look. "You're wanting to know why I did this,
are you?" she asked him in a playful, and seductive voice. "Well,
decided to do this try and cheer you up. The least you could
do is show me some sort of gratitude." She then noticed that he was
getting closer to the boulder and started to worry that he would find all
her clothes there, and that he might actually tease her with them.
Then she smiled at the thought, well if he
did, she would just have to surprise him. However, when he got
there, she noticed a surprised look on his face, as he took in what he
saw. She then realized
that he thought she was trying to trick him. When the shock sunk in
Link smiled a little, she was really without any clothes. All of
what she was wearing was there, including her undergarments. Then
he thought of something and took another look at the clothing and look
around, as if he were checking to see if they were alone. He mumbled something
under his breath, and shot Saria another questioning look.
It took a moment for Saria to understand what he was
"Oh, you were wondering where Seron is. I
told him earlier this morning that I would be all right for a day, and
asked him to leave me alone for that amount of time." This made Link
both apprehensive and joyful. While Seron, Saria's fairy, wasn't
here, he wouldn't get in the way of things. This could be both something
good and something a bit unlucky. Seron would've kept things from
going too far. As things were, Link was thinking that maybe things
have gone far enough. While Link was thinking, Saria was slowly drifting
back to shore. When she felt the ground of the pound under her feet
again she began to slowly wade the through the water. She tried to
stay low in the water to make it look like she was still our far. When
Link was lost deepest in his thoughts she slipped out of the water a quietly
as she could, barely making a single splash.
With her body still dripping she slowly walked up
to Link as seductively as she could even if his back was turned while he
was thinking. She laid her hand
softly on Link's shoulder, breaking him from his trance-like state
of thought. He was turning around, briefly forgetting the fact that
she had disrobed.
Before he could react or see anything, Saria kissed Link. She
stood up on her tiptoes to reach his mouth, and connected her lips to his.
Even though she had
taken him by surprise, he quickly responded back. Wrapping his arms
around her lower back to lift her up so that she could have a better vantage
wrapped her arms around his neck to hold onto for support and to pull
herself closer to him. Saria was enjoying the kiss, but then she felt something
pushing against her lips trying to open them. She offered little
resistance to his tongue, and let him push apart her lips. Once he
managed that, both of them explored the other's mouths with their tongues.
When it was finally over, the two just stared into each other's eyes, locked
in an eternal gaze. However, when she pulled back, Link realized
that she had nothing cover her body and turned around as quickly as he
could out of respect. Saria giggled and asked, "Did you see something that
time?" He hung his head and slightly nodded. She had a big
grin on her face. "Did you like what you saw?" He just kept his head
bowed. This caused her to snicker some. She walked up to Link
and placed her hands on his shoulders and gently started to rub them.
She guided him to the ground and stood slightly over him rubbing his shoulders.
Link was making sure that he didn't see anything
that he shouldn't. He noticed that she quite for a second and had
dragged something over near them. He heard a rumpling as she sat
down crossing one leg under her other leg that was propped up against Link's
side. She continued to rub his shoulders, as he realized that one of her
enticing legs was lying against him, he tensed up tremendously.
"You know Link," she said with some effort while
trying to relax him, "you really need to lighten up, one would think that
you thought that I was going to
kill you or something with how tense you are at the moment."
Link replied meekly, "I've never been with a woman in
this way before, and to top it off, you are the lady doing this to me.
I must admit I am a little nervous."
"A little, if you don't relax a little more you
may end up with a sore back by tomorrow, and she won't like that," Saria
said in an effort to loosen him, and
it worked. He lost all tension in his shoulders and now was sitting
up straight. If she could of saw his face she would of also seen him staring
space at that response.
Link just barely managed to gasp out, "She?" Then
he quickly found the ability to ask, "She who? What about tomorrow?"
All the while keeping his head straight forward.
Saria giggled a little. Link didn't like it when
she giggled like that it usually meant that she had something that wasn't
going to be good for him to tell him.
"Wel,." she started, "I and a couple others got
together this morning and decided to let you get to know us a little better."
"And who would these couple others be?" Link asked.
"Well there was me of course, Princess Zelda, Malon,
and..." she paused here on purpose, "Princess Ruto." Link's only response
was a slight jostling in his
posture. He couldn't believe it the women he loved were conspiring
Then he remembered, and asked, "What for?"
Saria flashed a mischievious smile that she knew
Link couldn't see, as she replied, "Oh, nothing much. We all were
getting upset that you hadn't chosen between us yet, so we decided to help
you make a choice. So for an entire day each, we have agreed to spend
with you, doing whatever you want. All you will have to do is ask.
With one exception, we also agreed that we would save ourselves for our
wedding nights, so that it would be something special for all of us." Link's
first thoughts were well that solves that problem, and in more ways
than one. Then he thought but that doesn't leave much else to do.
As if she read his mind she started to kiss on his neck as she said is
a highly seductive voice, "But that doesn't mean that we can't still have
fun." This made him shudder slightly. Saria felt him shake,
and moved in closer to him, pressing herself against him. He felt
the soft lumps press against his back and he felt awkward again.
Then he remembered a question that he always wanted Saria to answer.
"Saria?" he started.
"Hmmm?" she answered back as she was continuing
her passionate kissing.
"How come you were able to grow older, like me,
and not stay a kid like the other Kokiris?" He finished his question, and
she slowly stopped kissing his neck, pulled away slightly and craned her
neck around his shoulders to look him in the face, which he now dared to
look back some to see her as she answered. Her face took on a slight
red shade to it as she prepared to answer.
"Well, when I was younger and around the time the Deku
Tree Sprout came out, I knew that should you ever acknowledge your feelings,
I hoped, toward me that you may of found it awkward as time passed that
you would grow older and I wouldn't. So I asked the new Deku Tree
Sprout to grant me mortality so that I could grow up with you." With that
she wrapped her arms around Link's neck coupling her hands in front of
his chest, and went back to kissing at his neck. Now another question
"But how did you know that I would grow older and
not stay young like the others? I mean it wasn't reveal to me that
I was a Hylian till I was fifteen, even
though I could've guessed with the fact that I was taller than all
other Kokiri." He thought he covered his tracks well, he knew that
he was a Hylian when he
went back to live his childhood in Kokiri forest, from his journeys
through time. Again she subsided kissing Link long enough to answer
"I knew that you were a Hylian, from the moment
I saw you, you were but a babe then. Kokiri are brought into existence
as they are and they never naturally grow older or physically mature in
anyway. Before you ask, no I didn't know your mother and no I don't
think that I saw her. It was I, and Mido that the Deku Tree put in
charge of raising you. I more or less just made sure that you had
food to eat. Mido was the one that raised you till you were old enough
to live all by yourself," said Saria. "Now do you want to talk all
day, or do you want to know what I would be willing to do for you," she
said in a coy voice, as she castled a deep stare into Link's dark blue
eyes. He merely raised an eyebrow in interest to what she meant.
She slowly turned him around to face her, but again
he dropped his head to avoid seeing something that he thought he shouldn't.
She took his chin in her hand and slowly lifted his head to look her in
the eyes. Seeing that his were closed however, she whispered softly to
him "It's okay, I don't mind if you look, in fact I want you
to look. I want you to see all of me, in every detail, and not just
what you see here, but who I am in here," Saria said as she put his
and her hands over her heart, to coax Link to open his eyes.
Chapter Five: What Good Things
His heartbeat quickened as she laid his
hand over her heart, as he felt the soft slope of her skin. He slowly
opened his eyes to take in the sight. Before him he saw a beautiful young
lady, with her matted damp hair still the lovely emerald shade, offsetting
her elegant dark emerald eyes. A smile that he thought made his heart
skip a beat, he continued on to examine what he had worked so hard to not
see. In her relaxed position she looked incredible. She was
leaning all her upper weight on one arm while holding the other to her
side. He saw two soft damp mounds glistening in the almost noon sun,
as water was still making its way down her delicious tummy. Curving
at her lovely bellybutton, before it trailed off on to the blanket he brought
earlier this morning. Her long, slender, voluptuous legs teasing
him as one laid across the other. All he could do was stare she looked
gorgeous. She liked the way he was staring at her body. She
could even see that he was fighting to keep his jaw from dropping down
as far as it would go. She then spoke in a slow and deliberately
"Do you know what else we could do, besides just
looking at each other?" He slowly lifted his gaze taking in the whole scene,
as the sun lit her body up
making it seem as if some divine light was shinning upon her.
When he met her eyes again, he just stared into them lost in their trance,
not even realizing
that he was motioning his head no. She moved closer, shifting to a
prowling position, seductively crawling on her hands, and knees over to
him. As she did, she purposefully let him see her in all her glory
and saw that he was just as entranced as before. He couldn't stop
staring at her, as she approached him, he could see her chest lightly swinging
gently, freely. As she got to him she wrapped her arms around his
neck and inched closer on her knees.
"Oh the things we could do like this. But
I would settle for just a few of them," she whispered softly into his ear,
as she unbuttoned his Kokiri tunic. They locked lips again, more furiously
this time, only pausing to raise his shirts over him, exposing his
muscular chest. She laid him back onto the blanket as
she kissed him down his chest stopping for a moment longer at his flat
stomach. She almost frantically tried to undo his belt, but with
a little help from
him she was going below his waist in no time. His hair down there was
just as golden brown as that on his head. This excited her even more.
She was kissing
everywhere, oh how he liked it, he wished that she would never have
to stop. What was that, oh that feels good. She is good,
Link thought as he was
suppressing loud groans. This spurred her on, faster, deeper, tighter.
She even started to use her tongue to help do the job. Link could
no longer suppress his groans, and it sounded as if a large animal was
growling in the woods, luckily for them the other Kokiri rarely ventured
into the Lost Woods for
anything, this time being no exception. She sensed he was ready
and took one more deep thrust, oh, that was oddly satisfying she thought,
as she slowly slid off of him. He laid there, rocked by what just
happened, she was good. He didn't even know that she could, that
she would do that for him. How would
he be able to return the favor?
"Now you do that for me and we'll be even," Saria
said as she laid on her back, spreading her legs. For the first time
he actually saw a lady in her full glory. Following her example, he started
kissing her, first around her chest, gently arousing both of her peaks.
Slowly working his way down her torso, stopping for a moment at her bellybutton,
and using his tongue to see if it was as sweet as it looked, and it was.
He could already hear her starting to moan. He took this as a sign
to move on. He started first as she kissing around her. Teasing
her right over it, he could see it start to darken. He let a grin
creep over his face, but quickly force it away. Then, without warning,
he dove in, kissing, gently teasing her from inside, using his tongue,
as he flicked it back and
forth. She instantly grew louder in her moaning. He kept
this up, moving his methods up, and down, and anywhere he could go.
He noticed that she seemed to like it when he went up, so he did, often.
He looked up for a second and saw her hand squeezing at her chest.
He reached up with one and joined her.
She was now almost screaming with pleasure, and Link could feel her
legs closing up. So he instinctively used his hands to keep them
apart. The more he had to force them down, the more she moaned, screaming
to the top of her lungs now. Suddenly he felt her tighten, as she
gave one big final loud moan, to signify that she was satisfied.
She just laid there, as he joined her she let out a small giggle.
"What?" Link asked.
She just rolled her head over to look at him. "Thanks.
I really needed that after what I did for you." He raised his eyebrow
in his inquisitive manner. "Us ladies have needs to you know.
Whomever you take as your wife is most certainly not going to regret it
either." This explanation gave rise to a stunned look as he turned
his head skyward; he noticed that it was just after noon. He took
a look down at himself. He had been disrobed, pleased and he pleased
a girl that he liked very much, but still he couldn't help but feel
that there was an element missing to this. He looked over to the
inviting pond. "Race you to the pond," he said as he jumped up real quick,
and took off for the cover of the water as she had done earlier that morning.
"Hey no fair, you got a head start," she complained
as she got up as fast as she could, and took off running after him.
However, she couldn't help but be
distracted by the view she had. Splash, Splash. Was the
sound as the two dove into the water. They both tried to swim to
the bottom, but only Link made it
even the farthest. When he finally resurfaced, Saria eyed him
suspiciously. "How come you're a better diver, than most others?"
"Guess I just am," he replied, trying to evade a
boundless barrage of questions. She just looked him over, as if she
was in thought about something.
"No, I don't think so. You where never this
good till you went off on your little quest those seven years ago.
What happened, how did you learn to dive
deeper like that?" she said after a few minutes of thinking.
"All right, when I was at Zora's Domain, there was
a diving instructor there. After I managed to get all the rupees
he thrown over a waterfall in there, for
the first time, he gave me what was known as a Zora scale." He placed
his hand over his right lung and seemed to concentrate real hard.
A small light shone,
and then a little triangular object appeared in his hand. He
held the scale out for Saria to see. "This kind is known as a silver scale
it doubles your
ability to dive. So instead of being able to dive only three
meters, I could dive six. Then this one." He retracted the Silver
scale and let it reintegrate
itself into him and then done the opposite one, and held that one out
for her to see. "Is known as a golden scale it works in conjunction with
scale to allow me to dive a total of eight meters. This one I got from
the pond shop by Lake Hylia for catching the biggest fish in the pond at
the time." He
then put that one back into him. He hoped that she believed the
half truth, because he didn't know if she would understand about him traveling
heck he experienced it and he still didn't quite understand it himself.
"Oh, Link. Why were you so afraid of telling
anyone that?" she asked in a concerned and compassionate voice.
"I just didn't want to have to bring up the past
when it was all behind me, I wanted to live my life to it fullest, be a
kid again, and now I just want to settle
down, have a family and not have to save the world from certain doom."
Oops, he let that slip, oh please don't pick up on that please.
He thought as he kept a somber façade.
She just chuckled and said, "Well you might not
have to contend with monsters or phantoms anymore, but you still need to
pick one of us before you can settle down." Hey how did she know
I had to fight a phantom, that was from the future track not this
time line. He thought as he quickly covered his surprised face,
from when she said that. Hope she didn't see that he thought as he turned
away with a somber look on his face. While she didn't catch the surprised
look she saw his somber face.
"What's wrong now Link?" she asked in a chuckling
voice, she always thought that his somber face was funny she just couldn't
help. He quickly shot a
playful glare at her to indicate she had better stop laughing, least
she wanted him to pay her back. She knew that look too, and she tried
as hard as she could
to stop laughing, but that glare always made her laugh more.
"Come here you," he shouted playfully
"Ah!" She screeched quickly as she tried to swim away
from him. He quickly caught up with her, and when he did, he turned her
around slowly. Looking into her eyes once more he saw all of her beauty
coming back at him like a ton of bricks. He grins real quickly, and plants
a big kiss on her lips and they continued their previous kiss exploring each
other's mouths with their tongues. This time it tasted different, almost
sweeter. She kept trying to draw closer, but he knew how easy some things
would be while they were in the water, so he kept drawing away from her.
When they finally broke their kiss they just stared into each other's
eyes. Then she laid her head over Link's shoulders, and sighed. She
knew that she tried to do that and was thankful that he was still in control of
himself and kept her from making a big mistake, should things not go her
