YAAAAAYZ! NEW STORY :D I'm in total love with this one too ^_^ I'm put so much hard work in it, that I can't believe I made it :O It's over 66 000 words :D OMGGGGZ! I never thought I could do it. I swear, this thing wrote itself ^_^ Well, anywho, I hope you like this. It's just the prologue, and so, just the beginning ;) It's in Zelda's POV. This chapter might seem boring, but it's worth it. Please read and give me your opinion by reviewing :) Thanks :D Enjoy!
Stepping inside the castle, the first thing I did was take a deep breath. It had been so long since I'd been here. My nostalgia was broken when my cousin, Queen Midna, came running for me down the big stairs in front of me.
Her denim miniskirt flowed around her slim thighs as she got down. I think she was wearing the same miniskirt as I. Jumping on the last four steps, she ran for me, waving.
"ZELDAAAA!" she screamed, and as soon as I was close enough, she hugged me. I smiled, and hugged back. Readjusting my sleeveless shirt, I smiled.
"Good to see ya too, Midna." I replied, letting go to look at her.
"It's been so long since I've last seen you! You've changed so much!" she exclaimed.
"You as well. How long has it been? Three years?" I asked.
"Yeah, had to be. Anyways, I'm so glad you could make it, you're a total lifesaver here." She grinned, taking my arm and pulling me along.
"I've ordered my servants, soon to be yours, to take your luggage to your room. Let me explain why I called you more in detail."
"Alright." I agreed, walking next to her.
There was a moment of silence, then Midna cracked a smile. Turning her orange haired head to me and looking at me with her red eyes, she grinned even more and finally started talking.
"So… As you know… I'm gonna get married soon." She told me.
"NO WAY! REALLY? I DIDN'T KNOW! CONGRATS COUSIN!" I exclaimed, hugging her.
"Yep! I'm very happy myself, but the only minor problem is that I have to go get married in his country. Unfortunately, he lives very far away, and I will be gone for about two weeks. And as you know, I've called you over, because I want you to take over Hyrule for these two weeks." She grinned. I could barely contain my enthusiasm. Me, her younger cousin, orphan daughter of her late uncle, was going to govern Hyrule for two weeks!
"I really, really can't wait!" I grinned.
"I know. But being Queen isn't all fun and games. There's the politics part to be taken care of as well." She told me, her smile disappearing. I became sober again, looking at her intently.
"I can take care of it." I told her.
"Yes, and just so the stress won't be too much, I hired a bunch of people to help you along." She whistled. Almost immediately, a few people ran from all the sides of the hallway we were in, and joined us, bowing before Midna.
"Zelda, this is Malon." She extended her hand towards a red head girl, about my age. She bowed again.
"My pleasure to meet you, soon-to-be Majesty." She giggled. I smiled, then looked next to her.
"This is Kafei." She introduced, showing me the long, purple haired boy next to Malon.
"Nice to meet you." Kafei smiled sweetly at me.
"Then, here's Anju." She grinned, giving the fiery haired girl a high five. She returned it, then saluted me with her hand.
"Hey! I'm sure we're gonna be the best of friends." She grinned. Kafei slapped her behind the head.
"Ouch! What was that for?" she asked, rubbing the spot.
"Be polite! She's gonna be the new temporary queen here!" he warned her with a whisper.
"Shut up, I know that." Anju stuck a tongue out at him.
"Guys." Midna interrupted, moving onto the last one. "And finally, this is Sheik." She introduced the quiet, blue eyed blond boy.
"Nice to meet you all." I smiled.
"Great! You can go now!" Midna waved them off. They all bowed, then ran off behind us. "I know they don't look serious, but when on duty, they can be great. Don't worry. They'll be helping you with many affairs." She smiled.
"Wow. Are they all my age?" I asked, amazed.
"Yep. All. They're all 18. Most of the staff is." She told me.
"Cool." I replied, smiling until my ears.
"Anyways, let's head for your room." She told me, directing me up some nearby stairs. As we walked, I noticed a few people in uniforms running around everywhere, doing different chores.
"Oh, and if you ever want anything, call the servants." Midna noticed my glare and told me. "They'll do anything for ya. It's their job. And since you're the temporary ruler here, fire and hire as many people as you think you'd need. The castle's all yours." She grinned. I could barely believe it.
One day, I was watching TV at my mansion, all that my parents had left me when they died, the other, I was called to be the temporary ruler of Hyrule. This must've been a dream.
"All this is awesome." I chuckled.
"I know. You'll also get a bodyguard when you get out of the castle, but asides that, you're free to go and come as you please." She told me with a sigh.
"Bodyguard?" I asked, suddenly not so thrilled at becoming Queen.
"Don't worry about it. Darmani is big and sturdy, but he's a nice guy. He just becomes aggressive when the life of his charges is in danger." She grinned reassuringly. I relaxed.
"Great!" I exclaimed as we arrived at my room. Opening it, I stood frozen for a second.
"Amazing…" I breathed, looking at the pale pink walls, the purple covered bed, the mahogany study table with the closed laptop on it, the ivory door to my personal bathroom, the pink designed curtains, and the closet and drawers at the side.
"Yup. Had it painted just for you." Midna grinned.
"Oh my Goddesses, Midna, I can't believe you did all this for me." I whispered, on the verge of tears.
"Hey, you're the new Queen. Why shouldn't I?" she asked. "So…? Try it out!" she exclaimed, showing me the bed.
Without insisting, I ran as fast as my mini heels would allow me to go, and jumped on the bed, almost instantly sinking into it.
"THIS IS SO AMAZING!" I screamed.
"Yup. And it's all yours for the next 14 days." Midna smirked.
"Great." I replied, getting off with a smile going up to my ears. "And you told me on the phone there was a surprise." I smiled again.
"Yup. Ruto, Tetra and Ralph are coming to visit." Midna grinned.
"Ruto, Tetra and Ralph? You mean your brother and sisters? My cousins?" I screamed.
"Yep. The very ones. They'll be arriving tomorrow, when I'm gone." Midna told me. I screamed of joy, and jumped on her, almost making her trip.
"THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOUUUU!" I screamed, hugging her so hard, I swear her purplish skin became even more purple. You see, Midna comes from a different race of Hyrule, now extinct. Her ancestors were Twilis, and they lived in Hyrule. For some reason, she had inherited their red eyes and light purple-blue skin.
"Cool." I grinned. Midna rolled up the sleeve of her black shirt, and checked the time on her watch.
"Well, I think that's all for now. Malon and the gang will show you around tomorrow. But I think it's too late now. My servants will bring your luggage. You can go and get ready." Midna smiled.
"Alright." I smiled, heading for the bathroom as Midna headed for the door.
Midna turned back to me.
"Yeah?" she asked.
"Thank you. Have a good night." I smiled.
"You're welcome. Good night…" she replied, then closed the door. "Queen Zelda." She added from behind the door. I chuckled, then went inside the bathroom to comb my hair and get my makeup off.
There was a knock on the door.
"Come in." I screamed from the bathroom, too busy cleaning off my eye shadow to go and open it myself.
The door creaked open, and I heard some light footsteps, followed by a large thump.
"Your Majesty?" a male voice asked from the other room.
I stepped out, still cleaning off my makeup, and saw who had come in. It was a servant, judging by his uniform. I looked the blond boy straight in his blue eyes and told him with a sweet smile.
"I'm not queen yet. Just call me Zelda." I smiled. The boy looked confused, but then shook his head and rephrased himself.
"Your Maj…Zelda?" he asked, blushing as if he was wondering if he was getting played or something.
"Yes?" I asked him with a smile.
"Where should I put your luggage?" the servant boy asked.
"Just leave it next to my bed, it's alright." I told him, walking inside the bathroom to throw away my used cotton ball and to exchange it for another.
"There?" he asked again, putting my two suitcases right next to my bed.
"Yes, it's perfect, thank you." I smiled again.
"Okay…" he blushed again, looking at the ground. "Err… I'll be going now… If you ever need anything, you can call someone by pushing the button on the side of your night table." He blushed.
"Alright." I replied again.
"Good night, your Majesty." He said, bowing, then stepping out.
"ZELDA!" I screamed behind him.
"Zelda." I heard him mumble distantly. I laughed, then resumed my cleaning up to head to bed.
A cookie to anyone who can guess who the servant is *fangirlish squeal*.
