The Legend of Zelda Time's Wanderers: Ch. 3Chapter 3: Her Hero
In a room ambient with an ancient air, where light and shadow played in shades of green, there was a bed, cloaked with green curtains. I moved toward it in a weightless stupor, feelings of hope and dread fighting each other in my heart. Someone lay in the bed, so still, so fragile... The air was barely stirred by her breath. I could not clearly see her face, or anything about her. Still, I thought I knew her... The memories were there, if only I could summon them... Who was she? Where was I? Why did everything here feel so... so wrong?
A light drifted over to her, a fluttering of fairy's wings stirred her hair. A shadowed figure moved over to her, touched lightly her right hand... I saw her hand was bandaged, then, and there was a red stain, bright against the green. So bright. So wrong.
"Stay with us a while longer. Hold on. I will find help." The man's voice, too, was eerily familiar.
Abruptly, the scene shifted. No longer was I in a room that smelled of death
The Legend of Zelda Time's Wanderers: Ch. 2Chapter Two: Wolf's Eyes
It was the last word they'd said to me, and it echoed, the pain of it growing with each heartbeat.
Dead. They were dead.
Why wasn't I dead, too?
What was life worth without them, without a kingdom to serve, loved ones to protect?
I cried out, a long and anguished cry. I'd stopped caring months before whether I wept before my captors or not as they tortured me. There was no such thing as pride anymore, or hope of escape.
But there had been hope for them.
They were gone.
"Shut up," The soldier said, slapping me across my face. He laughed. "Oh. I'm sorry. Do you miss her? Well, you'll not see her for some time... We're not going to kill you just yet."
He spat at the ground before me, and it was just too much.
Not all my pride was gone yet.
I lunged for him, straining against my chains, but it was useless. The prison door slammed shut in my face.
For a moment, I just stared at it, stunned.
Then I collapsed against the wall, weeping.
