Link grinned wide as he sat next to the fast flowing
Zora's River. It was rare for him to have free time, but when he did he
really enjoyed it. Epona neighed
"I'm coming, old friend," he laughed, splashing
some of the clear, cold waters into his face. He stood, stretching his
tense legs and walked to where Epona
Link sighed happily as he mounted his horse, readying to ride towards his home. The sun sank behind the trees.
Suddenly he heard a faint song on the wind. Something about the song drew Link, though he didn't know why. He followed the sound, stopping Epona near Lon Lon Ranch. He looked closely, expecting the singer to be Malon, his long time friend. But it wasn't. The singer was female, that he could tell from her voice. But even in the full moon, he couldn't make out much more. He saw her hair glow golden as a gentle wind blew around her. Link hid himself nearby, so he could listen to her song without having to explain why he- the Hero of Time- was spying on someone. As her song finished, Link decided he had to meet her, though he already felt as if he had always known her. He walked around the wall, and she spotted him. Her ocean blue eyes that mirrored the color of his own filled with suspicion and burned fiercly. She didn't hesitate as she drew her sword.
"Wait! I come in peace," he soothed. She glared,
unspeaking. She was fast, he realized, as she raced towards him and spun
her light blade. He ducked,
" Watch your step, hero," she warned, her voice
cold and full of hatred. Her horse turned and she was gone.
Link blinked from his new seat on the ground, too surprised to get up. Epona walked up beside him, and prodded his back with her nose.
"I know, Epona. Something wasn't right about her," he shivered. Slowly he climbed to his feet and mounted Epona again. He headed towards his home, a small cabin near the Lost Woods. As he approached the tunnel that would lead him home he saw a figure dressed in black on a white horse blocking his path.
"Greetings, Hero of Time. You're out late," commented the Shadow Rider. Link recognized her voice immediatly.
"Hello, Impa. Or should I say Sage of Shadow?" he stated.
"I have no use for my title in these times. Not yet," she told him. "I have been sent on an errand by the princess. She wants to see you."
Link smiled. The Princess Zelda, the most beautiful woman in the land of Hyrule, and a sage to boot. He loved her, that much was obvious. He hoped to ask her father for her hand in marriage someday. He may be the keeper of the TriForce of Courage, but somethings were different.
Impa rode towards the castle and Link followed, prepared
to meet the princess under any circumstances.
