Link and Ganon finally made it. Ganon seemed to fade away. Link saw an encirclement of men in robes waiting for him. Link, they said in unison,
You have come a long way, now, the truth is only a test away.....
ONE MONTH EARLIER
Link? Zelda said.
What? Link asked.
I was thinking, who are your parents?
You always told me they died, but never their names.
I dont remember, I remember seeing their bloody bodies, then I heard Impa,
the rest is history.
Oh. I was looking through the old manuscripts about when Hyrule was a great
kingdom, and the Link then didnt know his parents either.
Well, its said the Links came from the forest somewhere.
About then, Links friend and Zeldas boyfriend, Paul came walking toward
Link and Zelda who were sitting in the woods. He hadnt noticed them at
first, but when he heard them talking, he started walking over.
Zelda hated being interrupted when she was talking to Link, even when it was
her boyfriend Paul. Hello, said Paul.
Hi, said Link.
Later that day, at the last meal in North Castle, Link didnt arrive. Where
do you think he is? Paul asked outloud.
Around, the King said, Hes around somewhere. The King seemed
Link was in the Library in the North Castle basement. He was looking through
a book of Legends and myths. It told of children from the wood. It also
mentioned a hero named Link in Hyrules early days. Link wondered about all
these Links. He was deep in thought when he could hear something,
He doesnt understand.
Of course not, how could he?
Hell start remembering vague memories of their lives.
He should also start to evolve telepathically.
That may come first
He may face temporary insanity if the telepathy is too mind bending.
A third voice, Hes listening!! Silence.
Hes listening!! Ganon heard. Then, silence.
Mi~Chin had finally found out. She figured out that her rival knew too. So
She began walking to the Tower, she had to reach the tower. She would be the
wisest Gnome in all of the land, maybe even the wisest being ever.
Link sat, thinking hed just heard the conversation of a superior people,
maybe gods. He suddenly had a vague remembrance of something. Some,
something. A book? A manuscript. A journal! A journal he had buried
somewhere. Why had he buried his journal, and when did he do it?
When everyone finished eating, and Link still hadnt arrived, Zelda started
to worry. She walked to the Triforce Chamber, Link wasnt there. But the
Triforce was glowing unusually bright. She paid no mind. Some time later she
found him, asleep in the library. Link?
Link woke up quickly rushed at Zelda, and almost cut her with a small dagger
until he realized what he was doing. Zeldas eyes were huge. Sorry, I
thought you were, someone else.
What the Hell?! Paul said, as he saw Link standing with a dagger to Zelda.
Link didnt hear Paul, and he didnt notice he hadnt put down his dagger, he
just noticed Zelda, she looked so surprised, her pretty face was twisted.
Link, what are you doing? he thought he heard. He saw Zelda move her
mouth, he didnt hear anything though. Paul ran and hit Link, knocked him
down. Link heard a muffled word, he couldnt tell, it might have been god,
or Paul, he couldnt tell, but he was mad.
Zelda, get a guard now! Paul yelled. Link charged at Paul and hit him in
the face, stomach, and knees. Paul punched at Link and hit his nose. Link
grabbed his dagger but before he could stab he felt a pain in his back, then,
nothing. The Guard had arrived and shot an arrow into Link.
Mi~Chin saw her rival, the ogre Gron, at the tower as well. They didnt mind
each other though. They both wanted to find the truths of their lives. When
they reached the top, Gron remembered a spot where an alter used to be. They
dropped the crystals in that spot. A light appeared and they suddenly knew
where to go.
Zelda, Paul, the King, and Impa were all listening to the witch doctor. I
dont understand, I healed the arrow wound, but he's sweating and wont wake
In his dream, Link saw Ganon. They were sitting in a field. So, do you
understand this? Ganon asked.
I need to find a magic book of mine.
I need to find a journal of mine.
I think its from another Ganon.
I think the same about mine.
Ill find it, you find yours, then well meet again.
Link woke up. Everyone stared at him. Link? asked Zelda.
Where is Kakariko Village? Link asked.
What? said the King.
I believe that is the old name of Ruto, said Paul. Zelda nodded. Link
grabbed his sword, shield and pouch, and started to leave. Only Zelda
Link had been digging at the edge of Ruto for hours in silence before he came
up with a book in a bag. He smiled. Link, what's happening? Zelda asked.
I started to remember... my lives. And I need to understand my existence,
all Links had no parents.
Link, what do you-
I heard telepathic beings talking about me, AND, I made a partnership with
Ganon, hes going through what I am. We are going to figure this out.
Link?! What is this!? At that moment Zelda cared not for Paul, her
father, or Hyrule, or Ganon. She just wanted Link to stop. So she asked an
unanswerable question. Link, what about the Triforce?
What about the Triforce? Link answered.
Link, you have to guard the triforce.
Someone else can.
Zelda ran off to the tree where she and Link had been talking about his
parents. She sat, and she wanted to cry, but couldnt. She slept, and
dreamed that Link shook Ganons hand, and Ganon smashed his hand, then snapped
Mi~Chin and Gron arrived at the boat to the island, where a man in robes
started rowing them towards the island in the ocean. On the way they saw a
Whale and an Elf in the water. The man in robes said, We have entered the
island waters, that is the Wind fish. And a Link, a Link to a mans life.
In Links diary, he saw a holy alter on the Tower of Hera, somewhere in the
mountains. The alter was never used, but the power of the two crystals of
Hyrule would call gods. Link knew Ganon had stolen one of these, Zelda had
another. He had to find Zelda.
It had been six days before Link, Paul, and the King found Zelda, fasting in
the woods. She kept saying very weakly, Link. Link snapped the crystal
from her bracelet without anyone seeing.
Mi~Chin and Gron arrived, and saw an encirclement of men in robes waiting.
Gron seemed to fade away. From Grons perspective, Mi~Chin faded away.
Through both perspectives, the robed men spoke: Mi~Chin/Gron, you have come
a long way, now, the truth is only a test away...
Zelda? Paul said as Zeldas eyes fluttered open. Paul was bleeding, his
clothes were torn.
Whats happened? asked Zelda, Wheres Link?
Moblins are attacking, they seem scared, they keep saying Ganon abandoned
them. Zelda seemed to suddenly understand. Link was looking for some god, he
and Ganon, theyve both been alive for lifetimes.... Then she heard it.
I didnt think she was going to start.
I did. She may be forced to the name Zelda, but she deserves it.
What about the Princesses before the first Zelda?
A Zelda wasnt needed then. But she was in the first Hyrulians.
Yes, evolution was working against her, so it takes her longer than the
A third voice, Shes listening! Then, silence.
Link and Ganon arrived at the Tower. It was in shambles, it was barely
there. Well have to search for the alter. Ganon said. Link had already
spotted it. The dropped the crystals onto it.
Link felt a sudden heat wave, then, he had a vision of a man on a boat, at
the bay. Saying nothing, he and Ganon started toward the bay. Ganon
mentioned moblins may give them trouble. Link understood.
The King came rushing to Zeldas room when he heard she seemed to go mad and
leave. Paul was waiting, he told the King that Link was gone too. The King
seemed to faint. Link, Zelda, and Ganon were gone. A few days earlier, Paul
had asked the King for permission to marry Zelda, the King had given his
blessing. He wondered how Paul was taking this so lightly now. Then, he saw
Paul with his knife at his hand.
Paul! The King kicked the knife away, but he didnt see it go anywhere.
Paul slumped over. The knife was in his chest, near his shoulder. The King
called a healer. Everything was falling apart.
Mi~Chin and Gron were thrown into the ocean. Dead.
Link and Ganon were on the boat, in the island waters when Link saw the Wind
fish. Memories came flowing into him. But then, they arrived at the island.
Link and Ganon finally made it. Ganon seemed to fade away. Link saw an
encirclement of men in robes waiting for him. Link, they said in unison,
You have come a long way, now, the truth is only a test away.....
What is the test? asked Link.
You must bear the pain of sight, sound, then touch.
Suddenly Link saw Zelda, being ripped apart by a moblin. Link was not able
to move, not able to help. So he sat down, and watched her die. Then sound
was added to the picture. Zelda began screaming. Link still couldnt move.
Then he could. He rushed to the moblin, and smashed is face in with his
shield. Zeldas body crumpled onto him. Link began to sweat and breathe
heavily. He couldnt save her. He would have to tell the King he let her
die. He couldnt. He was going to kill himself. But he didnt. Then, he
saw the encirclement of robed men again.
They spoke. LINK, YOU HAVE LIVED MANY LIVES, YOU WERE BORN TO PEOPLE THAT
WERE PAWNS OF THE GODS. THEY DIED AFTER YOUR BIRTH AND THEIR SPIRITS WOULD
WAIT TO BIRTH YOU AGAIN. THE FIRST LINK CAME FROM THE FOREST. THE FOREST IS
WHERE SPIRITS ARE BORN. THEY SURVIVE TO BECOME HEROES. THEIR DESTINY IS TO
FIGHT FOR HYRULE. DESTINY, HOWEVER, IS NOT EASILY FILLED. ALL OF THE LINKS,
INCLUDING YOU, FILLED THEIRS. WE HOPE THE NEXT LINK WILL TOO. BUT FOR NOW,
LINK, YOU ARE HYRULES SAVIOR OF GOOD. GANON IS THE DEFENDER OF EVIL.
Link arrived back at Hyrule, Ganon to his Palace. Zelda was missing.
Link! Paul yelled. Zelda was following you! Where is she? Link said
Damn you, Link! She... Zelda entered the room, she looked at Link, and
asked with her eyes: Did it happen to you? Link nodded.
ONE MONTH LATER
Zelda had rejected Pauls proposal. She decided to wait and see what
happened to Hyrule before she settled down. She didnt believe in destiny,
she knew Link didnt either.
The End, For Now
