"Find her now!!"
"Leave no place unchecked!"
"We must find Princess ______ immediately!"The guards scurried hastily around castle town,shouting orders at one another in an attempt to find you.
"Where could she be?"one guard asked. The others shrugged.
"Sir,we've searched all over castle town but we haven't found her at all." One soldier said.
"Maybe we should just tell Princess Zelda already.."Another soldier said. Once again the soldier sighed. He opened his mouth to speak but stopped when he saw a familiar brunette approach him. His eyes widen and he dropped to his knees.
"You're looking in the wrong places.."Zelda says calmly. The soldiers looked at one another then at her. The soldier in front of her stood up tall with a confused expression.
"W-we are?But Castle town is the only place-"he started but Zelda held her hand up to silence him.
"My sister , ________, is not a big fan of the town. She is not here. Come,I'll show you where she is.."she says,turning away. The soldiers nodded,speechless,they followed the princess as she headed for the West Gate of Castle town. She led them outside and down the white steps where a small field was and there in the center of it was a girl with (h/l) (h/c),sitting down where some flowers grew alongside another girl with blonde pigtails.
The two were laughing and chatting with each other,completely unaware of the Zelda and the soldier's presence.
"See?_______ is here."Zelda says softly smiling as she watched you and your friend. "That's her friend Agitha. They frequently play around here. This is _______'s favorite spot."
"Oh..we are terribly sorry Princess. We were careless and didn't think-"
"Don't apologize. _______ is very sneaky,so of course you didn't find her. But there is no problem,______ as well as her friend are completely unharmed and thats all that matters. "Zelda says. She takes a few steps through the field and stops a few yards behind you.
Hearing her footsteps, you sigh and turn around to her.
"You found me huh?"you ask.Zelda nodded ad walked over to you.
"_______,it's okay if you play here but you must alert your guards when you leave.They get very frantic when you're missing."Zelda says.You stand up and dust your long (f/c) dress off.
"Yeah,yeah I know but look at what me and Agitha found!"you say,holding up a closed fist to Zelda.Zelda stared at your fist as you open it to reveal a sparkling golden ant.
"Wow,it's beautiful."Zelda says. You nod.
"Yep!"you say. Your friend Agitha stood up and walked beside you, showing Zelda more golden bugs the two of you had found.
"They're all beautiful."She says. One guard takes notice of the setting sun and rushes over to Zelda.
"Ma'am. Nightfall is approaching soon. Shouldn't we escort you two back to the castle now?"he asks. Zelda looks at the sky then at you and Agitha.
"Yes.Agitha you should be heading home soon, it's getting quite late."she says. Agitha nods and curtseys to her.
"Yes m'lady. See you tomorrow ________!"she says, skipping off and back to castle town. You sigh and cup the golden bug in your palms before following Zelda and the guards back to the castle.
You sat in the chair at your mirror quietly while your older sister Zelda brushed your hair.
"______,why do you keep leaving the castle without a guard? You know it's very dangerous.."she starts. You sigh and shrug.
"I don't know.. I mean I'm sixteen years old! I think I'm old enough to go out by myself, plus the dark Lord Ganondorf is dead, right? You said this was an era of peace now. Why should I need a guard during peace time?"you ask.
"Because, even if Ganondorf is dead, there are still others out there. Monsters still roam the fields at night and not to mention bounty hunters that would kidnap you somewhere. You are a princess, remember that _________." she says. You roll your eyes and slouch in the chair.
"Sometimes I really hate being a princess..."you mumble.
"I know you do but it's something neither of us can help. Now,climb into bed and get some sleep."she says,setting the brush down. You nod and climb into your large queen sized bed, pulling the satin sheets over you. You sat up and stared out the window by your bed.
"Zelda..can I ask you something?"you ask. Zelda turns to you and nods.
"Of course ______, what is it?"she asks. You point out your window to a vast Lake that you could see far in the distance.
"What lake is that?"you ask. Zelda walks over and looks out your window before sitting down on the bed next to you.
"It's lake Hylia, home of the Zora tribe."she says. You gaze out the window.
"Wow..I wish I could meet a Zora and see that lake. Oh,what's over there?!"you ask,pointing towards six large hazed pillars further in the distance over Lake Hylia. Zelda squinted her eyes a bit at it and frowned.
"That's the Gerudo province. It's very dangerous."she says. You frown as Zelda lays you back against your pillow and pulls the blankets over you. "But forget about those far lands _______. You belong here in castle town. Now get some sleep."she says, lightly kissing your forehead.
"Zelda! I'm not a little kid. You don't have to tuck me in!"you say, folding your arms. Zelda smiled softly and stood up.
"Yes, I know but please get some sleep. Goodnight."she says leaving the room. When Zelda was gone you sit up in your bed and open the window next to you. The moon shone high in the dark sky, illuminating everything it's light touched. It shone down on Hyrule field, the part where you could only see from your window since you couldn't leave the town to see it for yourself.
You looked over at what you could see of Lake Hylia and sighed.
"What I wouldn't give, to be able to leave this Castle and have my own journey out there.."you sighed to yourself. "But of course, Zelda would never let me go.." You rested your chin against the windowsill and stared out at the field. You were just about to turn away from your view until you saw something. You squint your eyes and gasp when you see a man lying in the field. He looked unconscious from what you could see as well as injured.
Quickly, you slip on your boots and dash out your room, being careful to avoid any guards on duty, you snuck out of the castle and into the town. Once you were in the towns square, you ran as fast as you could to the North gate. As you approached the large wooden gate that was slightly pushed open for any people who wished to enter and leave, you look back at the castle.
You close your eyes, take a deep breath, and slip out the gate. You felt your heart race as you ran across the wooden bridge into Hyrule field. You looked around until your eyes landed on the collapsed figure a short ways from you. You immediately jog over to him and drop to your knees at his side.
"Hey,hey wake up." you say, lightly patting the man's face. As you stared down at the man you take a chance to fully see what he looks like. He had messy dirty blonde hair that swayed in the soft night breeze. Pointed ears like your own indicating that he was obviously a Hylian. A light green stitched hat was placed on the back of his head that stopped a little below his shoulders .He wore a green tunic with grey pants underneath that tucked into his long brown boots.
Near him you spotted a shield and sword by his side, both engraved with the triforce markings and symbols. Your eyes went wide as you realized exactly who this man was. He was the legendary hero, Link. The townspeople praised him, calling him a mighty deity but now here he is, lying unconscious in your arms from god knows what.
"Hey! Wake up!!"you say, shaking him a bit. With a light groan, Link's eyes opened slowly and before you knew it, they were staring right up at you.
"Z-Zelda?"he mumbles out. You shake your head and sit him up fully.
"No, I'm ________. I'm Zelda's si-I mean..I'm just ______."you say. Link blinked a few times at you and held his head.
"_______ huh?"he asks. You nod.
"Yep." you say.
"You know, you look a lot like the princess."Link says.
"S-So I have been told. I get that a lot."you laugh nervously. "Anyway,are you okay?" you ask. Link shrugs and tries to stand up but instantly falls back down in pain.
"N-No.."he says, holding his chest.
"Here let me see."you scoot over to him and place your hand on his chest, shifting it around until he winced. "I see, you have a broken rib."you say. Link sighed and laid back down.
"That's just great.."he says.
"It's okay! I can heal it if you want.."you say. Link stared at you in confusion.
"Really?"he asks. You nod.
"Yep. You're an adventurer right?"Link nods."Well then..if I heal you, will you take me with you on your adventure?" you ask. Link's eyes widen and he shoots straight up, immediately regretting it due to the immense pain it caused.
"W-What? But you're just a girl. It's too dangerous for you to come with me."he says. You lay him back down and put your hand back on the spot of his broken rib.
"Don't move so fast! Besides, I can take it. I'm a lot stronger than I seem and I really must get to lake Hylia."you say. Link raised an eyebrow.
"Well...it's my dream to travel to the distant land. I wanna do so much! I wanna meet a Zora!"you say. Link stared at you.
"So why haven't you gone?"he asks.
"My sister...She says it's dangerous and never let me go anywhere. I just wanna be on my own. I wanna explore things."you say. Link stared at you then down at your hand, which had been glowing a vibrant blue color this whole time.
"Whoah..what is that?"he asks.
"It's Naryu's love. It's a healing spell my sister taught me. She said it's power from the great goddess herself."you explain. As the light faded, the pain in Link's chest dispersed. Allowing him to sit up with ease .He patted his chest and stared at you.
"That's incredible! I'm completely healed!"he says, getting to his feet. You nod and do the same, watching Link as he collected his weapons. He slung his shield over his back and slid the sword into his sheath.
"So..can I join you?"you ask. Immediately Link stops and turns to you.
"What about your sister?"he asks. "She'll be worried if you just leave,won't she?" You stare at the ground.
"I think she'd understand if I were to be with you, great hero."you say, blushing slightly .Link blushed as well and rubbed the back of his neck.
"Well...I..I guess..I could always use a good healing partner...so..It's fine with me."he says. "But I only take you to lake Hylia then I bring you straight back!" You smile and nod.
"Okay !Oh thank you! Thank you great hero Link!"you squeal. Link sighed.
"Yeah,yeah. Just don't call me that,got it?"he says. You nod.
"Okay!!"Link smiled at you and scooped up some grass. You watched as he blew on them, causing a soft melody, almost like a whistle, to erupt from it. Soon after that, a horse appeared and galloped over to him. Link quickly hopped on it and extended his hand to you.
"Well, lets go then!"he says. You nod and take his hand, allowing Link to help you up onto the horse. "Hold on!" You nod and wrap your arms around Link's waist as he gave a click sound with his mouth, instructing the horse to move. The horse neighed and began to gallop away through the field. You looked over your shoulder at the castle, it was still dark,meaning nobody had noticed your absence yet. You rest your cheek against Link's back and close your eyes.
But what will happen when they do realize you're missing?
