No amount of prayer could have saved my land from destruction. I watched it fall and crumble under Gannondorf's reign. There was nothing that I could do to stop it from happening.
There was a time when I believed that I could do it; I could take on evil and avenge this broken land from its loathed ruler. But even when hope is realized, when it is even fully tangible, everything can still be taken away; it is almost like stealing from a grave.
He slaughtered the Royal Family. Then he stole my Spiritual Stones and found the "Song of Time". Everything was ruined in that one moment. I couldn't go back to anything. I forced Navi to leave me and I found myself here, in what is now the ruin of Hyrule Castle Town's guard shack near the gate; it is where the Poe Collector lives.
Achachak collects ghosts and poes now, rather than going to protect this land. It is not his job he says, petting one of his beloved spirits. I must admit that he is right, it is not his job - it is mine. But I cannot fathom how to get it done. I have no weapons, outside of bombs and Deku nuts. There is nothing left for me, no one but this man cares for me, wants me and needs me.
I give my body for Achachak. I collect him his ghosts and I find people who want the comfort of an innocent face and warm body beneath them. It is not hard to find a soul like that in these times and they pay good money for a boy like me. I have no shame left, not after Gannondorf took me for all I was worth.
Do not get me wrong, I do love this land. I would give almost anything to save it. But I have no clue where to start and what I should do to help it regain its strength. I have nothing but memories and an Ocarina. It is Saria's Ocarina, not even that of the Royal Family's, which I heard is lost somewhere in Hyrule. An adventure that I cannot even partake as I am now.
There is nothing for me to do. I have no hope of recovering the land and one day I too will be the servitude of Gannondorf. For now I will continue my work gathering ghosts, clients and money for Achachak. I am perfect sacrifice. If not for the land than for my new master. At least here I am usable whether or not the land of Hyrule is saved.
I truly am a perfect sacrifice for this world and destiny.
This is a repost. After my fiasco with in 2006, I took everything done and disappeared for a while. I never stopped writing this story, though I did believe the first chapters lost (Chapter 4 is lost still - if anyone happens to have it . . . please email it to me!).
If you remember from the last time I posted this, I suggested it to be a slash story between Link and Shiek. As I have come to write this, I have found that it is not the romance I intended it to be, Link completely took over and gave me his darkest side.
I do hope that everyone who once loved this story finds it again and that this one finds itself adored by new fans as well.
This story will be finished this time - nothing will stop me.
