A newfound power

Wouldn't that be a better title for the last chapter?

       Emerging from the Water Temple, Link and I ascended from Lake Hylia and into the bright sunlight. The storm had stopped and all was quiet.

And we had severe frostbite.

 We held onto each other as we made our way to our horses. Midnight Star and Star Dancer had found themselves some grass to gnaw on that had pushed its way up threw the snow.

 

 We pushed our way threw the deep snow and up to our awaiting horses.

       Link helped me into my saddle, then he removed the Iron Boots and replaced them with his regular ones, buckled the Master Sword back around his back,

Why did he have it out to begin with?

fastened his saddlebags, then mounted Midnight Star. Looking back at me one last time he smiled. "Oh by the way my love, I managed to retrieve these." Raising his hand he held up my Phoenix Circles.

Yes because without those her life is ruined.

I looked at him with a smile then took the weapon and fastened it to my belt. Then I nodded I was ready, I glimpsed back at the lake one last time before we booted our horses in the legs and headed for home leaving the Water Temple behind.

       When we reached home, we dismounted and ushered the horses back into the stable. Then we went into the house. After we walked, in I saw Ruto sitting by the fire with our little son. When she looked up at us, her eyes grew big with shock. Oh my Goddesses…what the hell happened to you two?"

Well gee it's almost like they got in a fight with someone.

Removing the tattered Zora Tunic, I staggered to the couch and sat down. "We got the shit beat out of us." I replied darkly.

Yeah because that's what everyone says around a baby that's learning to talk.

I watched as Link removed his damp cloak and scabbard then staggered over to the couch and sat down beside me. "Got the shit beat out of you…by who?!" Ruto questioned again with worry and shock.

Okay, A. Watch you fucking language, B. Why is she asking that, Link basically had a mental break down.

 I looked directly into the Zora's concerned eyes. "It's a long story Ruto, are you up to it?"

Well I've made it this far.

She nodded back in response.

       After we explained about our terrifying

"terrifying"

 experience inside the Water Temple, Ruto's eyes stared at us in pure shock. "Oh my Goddesses…Jenna you have powers over the elements?"  

Hopefully, no.

Ruto said with shock in her voice. "I'm not sure, I have no memory of the events Link described to me." "The last thing I remember, I was being knocked into the tree after Dark Link broke threw my defenses." "But Link said I destroyed his counter part inside a Hugh energy ball."

And I say you're a shity writer.

I sighed shaking my head. "I still don't understand it, I never had powers like that before." "Maybe they were dormant until now." Ruto added. "It's a possibility." Link said. "Hummm…you have a point, but I wonder what could have activated it."

Most likely a really cheese plot point.

I responded skeptically. "Maybe it was activated threw the immense anger, you experienced when Dark Link attacked you." Link said as he took a sip of his honey tea. I pondered the thought, wondering if that could be what happened, but it still sounded too farfetched.

Yes because nothing else in this story is farfetched.

        "I think I should go see Princess Zelda tomorrow." "Maybe she can help answer this." I said as I looked at Ruto. "Well I think that's a wise decision, maybe she can help." Ruto said as Link nodded in agreement. Looking over at Link, his eyes seemed to glow with anticipation. For a moment I was able to read his mind threw them, only to have the connection break.

So wait, they can turn off the telepathy

       "Well it's been a long day." "I'm tired and I want to get cleaned up, lets call it a day." I said as I eyed Link over. "You can stay here tonight Ruto." "I still don't think it would be wise for you to head back to Zora's Domain until morning." I said as I handed Ruto a pillow and blankets. "Thank you kindly." Ruto returned appreciatively as she took the blankets from me and proceeded to make a place for herself by the fire.

I hope she catches fire.

 "I'm going to send Lilly and Navi to sleep down here tonight, if you should need anything, they'll get it for you."

"Hey listen, hey, hey listen."

"Navi I'm trying to sleep."

"Hey listen."

 I said as Ruto nodded in return.

       "Yawn" "Well I'm heading up, coming Link?" I asked him tiredly. "Yes my love, I need to clean up as well." He said as he ascended the stairs behind me.

       As I prepared our bath, Link was busy removing the tattered clothes from his body. While I watched the water swell in the tub from the heat, I begun to think of what Link said. The notion that I might have powers over the elements frightened me, since I had no idea if I would even be able to control such power. I just hoped that if I had such power, that I would be able to take control of it.

Well seeing how you're a Mary Sue, I'm going to say you' ll learn how.

       When the water was ready, I removed my tattered and torn dress, and call for Link to join me. Slipping down into the water, it was a relief to finally remove the dust and dirt from my body. I slipped over to Link and into his muscular arms.

 

So muscular.

I huddled against him as he took the wash rag and begun to clean my wounds and scrub away the dried blood. As I laid there, inside Link's strong arms, I felt secure, felt protected.

Yes because you need protection.

Even in light of what befell us that day, I was glad that I went with him. Who knows what might have happened if I didn't. 

He would have fought Dark Link.

He could have still been prisoner to his evil counter part.

Or dead.

Though everything that happened that day still haunted me, itnight, was the first night when sleep evaded me. haunted my dreams. And that

Wait how does that work? It haunted her dreams before she even went to bed?

        Morning came and the morning sun washed threw the window and into the room. I opened my sleepless eyes and stirred out of bed. I walked over to the crib where our son laid. His sweet little face was so innocent as he slept peacefully in his crib with his fairy Aria snuggled next to him.

Okay no, if babies don’t sleep through the night then a fairy definitely won’t shut the fuck up.

I reached in and gently brushed my fingers across his soft cheek, smiling to myself as I watched him sleep. "I love you my son." "I don't know what would've happened to you if you lost us."

Probably be adopted to a less sappy family that would be more entertaining to read about.

A single tear trickled down my face. "Don't worry my son, the face of death isn't going to keep us away from you." I said as I gently placed a little kiss on his forehead.

       Rising, I walked over to the other side of the bed where Link was sleeping and knelt down beside him. Taking my hand, I gently brushed his fine blonde hair out from over his eyes and placed my lips close to his.  Softly I kissed his firm lips,

Oh my me last time someone did this they were dying… Please be dying.

tasting the honey still on them from the tea he drank the night before.

Even if he didn’t brush his teeth his lips wouldn’t still tast like the tea.

 Then a glint caught my eye as he opened his beautiful jeweled eyes. "Hi." I said to him softly. "Hi." He whispered back. "We should head over to the castle soon." I said, kissing him again.

       Stirring out of bed, Link yawned then got up and went to dress his bandages while I went to check on Ruto and prepare breakfast. 

So usually our stories have to little description but this one has to much.

Descending the staircase, I saw Ruto's sleeping form on the floor in front of the fire.

For someone who loves her child so much you sure do a lot of stupid stuff that is dangerous. Like leave him with a person with hypothermia and now leave the fireplace unattended. Last time I did that my sim died.

Glancing around the room, I noticed Lilly and Navi sleeping on the mantel of the fireplace. Softly I called for our fairies. "Lilly, Navi, wake up." Stirring, Lilly looked over at me. Then sleepily she got up and flew over. "Whats wrong Jenna?" She said as she muffled a yawn.

       "Nothing, I just wanted to know how Ruto was doing. "Did she sleep well last night?" I questioned, concern filling my eyes. "She did just fine, the only thing she asked for in the middle of the night was she needed some water to wet her body, since she had remained too long out of the water." "Is she ok now?" I questioned Lilly.

       Just then, Ruto stirred awake as she sat up, her sky blue eyes watching us. "Morning, how do you feel Jenna?" Ruto questioned as she muffled a yawn. "

Okay i don’t know anyone group of people that yawn this much. I mean I know it’s morning but Jesus.

Still a little sore, but I didn't sleep well, that day is still haunting me."

While that line does work that would be better used years from now, not the next day.

My face faltered as I felt the effects of that day coming back again. Rising and walking over to me, Ruto put a hand on my shoulder, as she sought to give me comfort. "I think it would be wise if you 

"stop writing."

and Link head to the castle soon."

You just fucking said.

The Zora returned with a worried glance. "Maybe your right. "

Maybe your "your" is wrong.

"But what about you, aren't you still weak?" A look of concern crossed my face as I eyed her over. "Don't worry about me Jenna, I can manage." You and Link have already done enough." Nodding,

Wait she nodded to that? she agreed that they did enough for Ruto? What a dick

I hugged the gentle Zora. "Thank you Ruto." I said happily as she smiled back.

        After breakfast, Link and I saddled the horses and headed for the castle. With one last look back, I waved to Ruto as she disappeared into the tunnel leading back to Zora's Domain. "I think we should get going." Link stated as he glanced over at me. I secured Link jr in his portable carrier, then booted Star Dancer in the legs and followed Link. Snow kicked up behind our horse's powerful hooves as they dug into the ground, unearthing it.

Wouldn't it be faster to use snow shoes? I mean yesterday the snow was up to someones knees, and winter just got started so the snow shouldn't be melting yet.

Leaving the Lost Woods and entering Hyrule field, I saw that snow still blanketed most of everything and a slight winter chill lingered in the air. I felt my body heat up as the cold tingled my senses.

Wouldn't it just be one sense, your sense of feeling?

Getting nervous, I urged my mare to move faster. I watched as Hyrule castle started to loom over us. Approaching it, the drawbridge lowered and we proceeded to cross.

They just knew who you were with out seeing you. Unless you weren't wearing winter clothes, but who would do that with a new born baby.

The sound of our horse's hooves made a clopping sound as we crossed the wood bridge.

     Upon entering the Market Place, I heard it bustling with activity as people went about their daily wares. We slowed our horses to a trot and headed for the gates to the castle, the sound of their hooves made a clicking sound on the stone pathway as we went.

You just told us what sound they made you don't need to retell us just because you moved from a bridge to a stone path.

When we reached the first gate, I saw that my good old friend Perrino was on duty. "Hello my old friend how are you?" I called out to him. Smiling back at me he spoke. "Hello Mistress Jenna, I've been fine." "Do you wish to see the Princess today?" Nodding in response, he raised the gate and allowed us to pass. "Thanks my friend."

We get it you're friends you don't need to constantly say friend at the end of all your sentanses with him.

I said as we rode past. We went up the small path that lead to the main gate. When we reached it, the guards opened it then went to summon Princess Zelda.

       Upon her arrival, she wore a surprised look. "What brought you here in this terrible cold?" She questioned. "Zelda, we have to talk, it's important." Link said sternly. Her expression changing, she called the stable hands to take our horses to the Royal Stable, then led us inside. Then we were taken to the study. Once there, Zelda ordered for the servants to bring refreshments, and warm blankets.

I don't know if  have said this but stop with all the unneeded details.If you took out all of the unneeded stuff you would save so much time... and lives.

Link and I sat down on a cushioned couch while Zelda sat in a chair across from us.

Well thanks for tellig us that detail, with out it I would have thought you two were on a couch made of spikes and Zelda on the FUCKING CIELING.

"So…tell me what is of such great importance that you two came all the way here in the chilling cold with your little son?" Zelda questioned, worry cracking in her voice.

See watch I'll make that much shorter. "Is everything okay?"

      "Its about Jenna, Princess…we had a very….ummm….disturbing encounter in the Water Temple yesterday."

So what you can't talk to Zelda without stuttering like a blabbering idiot?

Link said solemnly. "WHAT?!……Water Temple, what were you two doing there?" Zelda cried, her eyes wide with shock. "It's a long story my friend, do you have time?" I asked. "I have all the time in the world." Zelda replied crossing her arms.

      After we told her about our encounter with Dark Link, and about my supposed control over the elements. I watched as Zelda's eyes widened, pure shock and terror filled into them. "Dark Link…..control over the elements…..Jenna's body on fire!?" "What the hell…….?" Zelda said in a choked voice. "Zelda my friend, I still don't quite understand it myself." "That is why we are here, you being a sage, almost as powerful as Rauru, we thought you could help."

Okay usually you want someone to help you don't say "Hey we couldn't see the best so you'll have to do. Also I have a simple salution, we test if she's a witch by seeing if she ways the same as a duck. Problem solved.

I said, then my eyes lowered, turning towards the fireplace and staring down into the flames. "If I really have such power…I'm afraid I might not be able to control it."

Fuck it. If I find it pointless I'm blocking it.

I heard Zelda rustle, then rise and walk over to me. Gently she placed a hand on my shoulder, and I looked up at her, her blue eyes glowing with concern. "Don't worry my friend, we will find out if such power runs threw your veins, and if you do, then I will help you master control over it."

Yes because Zelda knows howto controll the power.

Smiling, she looked into my eyes and a wash of calm ran threw me. I looked back over at Link and establishing a connection between us, I begun to talk to him telepathically.

      "Don't worry my sweet love…Zelda knows what she's doing." "I have full confidence in her abilities." Link said, his voice floating threw my mind. "I believe you my love, she has always had great abilities." "I just hope that this isn't much on her. " I called back to him. "Just trust in her my wife, she knows what she's doing. "

      Link responded. "I love you Link." I cooed softly into his mind. "I love you too my sweet heart."

Dammit I'm running out of black.

 I felt Link's presence fill into me,

Please be sex so that Hent. can take over for a bit.

as he warmed my body, warmed my soul and at that point I was in peace. "Don't forget my love, I will always be here for you." Saying a few more words we broke our special connection and rejoined the speaking world.

Yeah because having a mentail convosation is kind of a dickish thing to do.

      Zelda, Link and I wrapped ourselves in our cloaks, called Impa to care for little Link, then headed out into the palace garden.

Why that would be the one of the coldist places you could go.

We walked threw the ankle deep snow and sat down on the marble benches. Link sat next to me, and Zelda across from me.

We get it you will always sit next to Link and the other person will sit across of you two.

I wrapped my cloak tighter around my body trying to keep out the chill. Then I directed my attention to Zelda.

       "First off…we need to establish a connection between you and the power." Zelda finally said. "Lets work with the fire element first." "I want you to focus, clear your mind of all thoughts and concentrate on a single flame."

Let me guess how this will work. She is going to do what Zelda said and it won't work, so Zelda will say try thinking about what you were thinking about when you first learnd about the powers.

She said calmly. I closed my eyes and slowly my mind cleared of all thoughts. I felt the void open up around me, sending me into a darkness. I floated around in the blackness, searching for the flame. I watched, waited, then suddenly I saw a glow as a small flame begun to rise. "Do you see it?" Zelda inquired. "Yes…yes I do." I responded as I watched the flame in my mind slowly start to dance.

Wait did I call it wrong?

       "Now concentrate on it, make it a part of you." Zelda stated again. I stared at the flame…focused on it, tried to make it a part of me. Then I reached out for it, tried to touch it. When my hand grazed over it, I felt a burning sensation, and jerked my hand back. "OUCH….dammit." I cried as the flame flickered out and the void shattered. "What happened?" Zelda asked, watching me cradle my hand. "It burnt me when I tried to touch it." I returned angrily, cradling my throbbing hand.

     "Hmmm…you physically felt something, but you didn't concentrate on it enough to control it." "Lets try it again."        

I cleared my mind of all thoughts and the void opened up around me once more. Again I tried to concentrate on the flame that rose up in my mind. Focused on making it a part of me. This time I felt its warmth against my skin as it flickered wildly in front of me. Once more I reached for it as I slowly lowered my hands beneath it and taking it gently into my hands. I felt its heat on my palms as I slowly took hold of it. Then I brought it close to me, peered into its reddish glow, saw my own reflection dancing among it. As I held the warm flame in my hands, it danced wildly across my fingers as it became a part of me, a part of my very being.

Well shit, at least it's progress.

      Then I heard a voice call out to me. "Jenna…..look." I opened my eyes and saw an amazing sight.

Waldo?

There on my finger tips were two flames dancing across them. My eyes grew big as I looked from Zelda to Link,

Wait you didn't tell us how big your eyes are. Well now this story just can't continue.

 who were just as wide eyed as me. "Oh…my Goddesses…I did it." "I really did it." I cried as a tear ran down my cheek. "Then its true…you really do have elemental powers."

Or just fire.

Zelda returned shocked. I looked at her then to my hands. I watched as the flames danced across my fingertips, its glow reflecting off the palms of my hands. I played with it, moved my fingers around as the flames danced from one finger to another. I giggled as the flames moved with my hands, and jumped when I flicked a finger. Then suddenly the flames flickered out and a small fire rose in the palms of my hands. "What happened?" Zelda asked worried.

It's almost like fire spreads.

I looked at her slowly graying eyes then faltered to the small fire in my hand. "I just thought of a small fire in my hands then poof… the flames on my fingertips went out and this rose up in my hands."

      "Jenna… Zelda clasped her hands over he mouth, you really do have control over the elements."

Again 9  FUCKING LINES AGO SHE JUST SAID THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"The power was really inside you all this time…it just took something drastic to happen in your life for it to activate."

 

STOP WITH ALL THE CLICHÉ!

I stared at her wide eyed, unable to move. "You mean I was born with this ability?"

No you just got the power now.

I said my voice raspy from shock. "It's a possibility, or maybe something happened to you during your life where you acquired it from somewhere."

Oh dear me please tell me she isn't going to get a traumatic backstory.

"Do you have any recollection of anything strange that happened to you before your encounter in the Water Temple?" Zelda asked. I thought for a moment. Tried to remember if I ever had anything really strange happen to before my encounter with Dark Link.

      But the only thing I remembered where something drastic ever happened to me, was when my parents died.

Oh come on with all this possibility of back stories you pick the most played out one.

"Nothing has happened that I remember, only thing is when my parents died when I was a little girl." I returned solemnly "Hmmm…do you think your parents ever had any special abilities?" Zelda questioned. "Well I remember when we would have dry spells on the farm where I'm from, my mother would sing to the sky and it would rain."

Oh come on, it's like she got a book of overly used clichés and is trying to impute as many of  them as possible.

No, she wrote the book.

"I also remember that my father was always good with the earth." "Our farm always was prosperous, the crops my father grew were always the best in our village." I looked back down at the small glowing fire in my hands as its gentle warmth, warmed the chill from my body.

And none of this made you think you had powers?

      "Jenna…there is no other explanation." "Your parents must have had some elemental powers, and it transferred to you." "But both of them seemed to only have one power." "Your mother with the power of water, and your father with the power of earth." "But one thing still has me baffled, how did you come to possess the power of wind and fire?"

Because the Avatar died before you were born.

Zelda asked in amassment.

       I watched the puzzled looks that appeared on Zelda and Link's faces. Never had they encountered someone in Hyrule with control over the elements.

Really because I’m pretty sure that LINK HAD CONTROL OVER FIRE!

Stories of Hylian's possessing elemental powers only existed in the dark ages of Hyrule. Most thought that  the people who possessed such powers were thought to have died out hundreds of years ago. Stories for told that if one who possess powers over the elements should ever show up in Hyrule, then the land will truly be blessed. Protected by the one with powers of the ancients.

Fuck you Fuck you  FUCK YOU FUCK FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK FUCK YOU FFFFFFFFOOOCCCKKK YYYOOOUUU

But no one ever thought the stories were true. It was told to be only a myth, but now that one did show up, would this be Hyrule's great protector?

Of course you’re a Mary Sue.

With the thought that Gannon might somehow return, would I be the one to protect Hyrule from such darkness?

I just have to ask, Why do you alwaysneed to one up Link?

      I looked at Link and Zelda, who were staring at me with blank stares. "I believe that when she was born, the powers of earth and water transferred from her parents, but she must have been born with her own set of powers." "That would explain her power over fire and wind." Link added his calm stare upon my face. Zelda just looked from me to him. Her face expressionless.

Just like anyone who is reading this.

      Then her gaze landed on the small fire in my hands. "Jenna…there are stories that     once in the dark ages of Hyrule, there were Hylians that once possessed powers over the elements,

Ow come you just told us this.

but it was believed that they all died out in the time of the (10)Great War of the Lands." "This devastating war befell Hyrule hundreds of years ago, killing half of Hyrule's population." "But it was believed that it was the (11)" Silverlites" or elemental users, that were the ones who saved Hyrule and ended the Great War." "The stories also state that if a "Silverlite" should ever return to Hyrule, the land would be blessed with peace and prosperity."

Yeah no.

Zelda's gaze fell on me, her expression warm yet serious. "I'm not too sure if you could be a descended of the Silverlites, but one thing is sure, you are an elemental user." Zelda said her eyes reflecting the glow of the fire still burning in my hands.

      "I think we should continue the training of your powers, Jenna." "We need to make sure you can fully control the elements." I nodded in agreement but one thought flashed into my mind. "Zelda my friend, I have one question." "I just thought of something, you said that my parents transferred their powers to me when I was conceived, but what about our son?"

I don’t like where this is going.

 "Do you think its possible that Link jr. might have acquired the powers as well?" I said as Link looked at me with shock. "I never thought of that…yes it might just be possible."

I can’t believe I’m about to ssay this but I hate this kid.

"But he may still be too young to tell." "Even though if that is possible, the thought of Silverlites still existing is one of the greatest things to happen to Hyrule." Then Zelda's gaze shifted to Link. "You truly have a very special wife Link." "A possible descended of the great Silverlites." Zelda said happily.

       I watched as Link's gaze shifted to me. His powerful arms embraced me as his gentle lips kissed mine. For a moment I was in another world as Link's gentle kiss warmed my soul. And I knew at that moment, that even if I was one of the Silverlites, Link would always be with me, always be at my side

Yeah because he doesn’t want to be burnt to a crisp.

      I looked into Link's eyes one last time then looked back to Zelda. The fire danced in my hand as if it was alive, causing her expression to cinto a happy one. I giggled as I did tricks with my new found power.

And set the castle on fire

I was now more then I had become. I became something different. Some one of great power and of legend.                              

        It was later determined that I was a descended of the great Silverlite race. My powers were of the great elements. I was trained under Zelda and I became someone of great power. Now I'm one of Hyrule's most powerful protectors, help the "Hero of Time" my love, protect t

By the way this next part was uploaded weird so there is some big spacing for no reason.
