A/N-Hey guys, I don't own anything cuz if I did, I wouldn't be here right now just read and review. It's going to get better, a lot better.
Chapter 6: Healing
When you have a dead leg, a half naked girl in the room, and are staying in a different dimension…it's time to get a new job…
Midna had brought me over to the huge bed and layed me there. Any time I moved my leg more puss seeped out. My Master Sword was clenched in my left hand held tightly, to avoid losing it.
"Mi-dnnaa…" I tried to stammer out, "We…have to go…" My breathing was becoming more jagged, as I kept thinking about everything that had just happened.
"Where Link?" She asked now sitting on the bed next to me.
"Back…to…Hyrule…" I felt like I was going to pass out. "It's the only way….Can you warp us…?"
"Yah, of course Link," She stroked my hair once and picked off the cap that had fell off when I had hit the bed. "Where to?" Her voice was soothing, she was ferocious yet beautiful…
"Just…get…me their…" I couldn't pull myself together to tell her everything. But while my body wasn't reacting my mind was. I knew exactly where to go…where someone owed me a debt.
She put on a long robe over her shawl, and moved me so I was resting on the backboard of the bed. She then hovered in midair for a second like she used to back on our first adventure then she spun around until I got the sense of warping.
It wasn't as terrible as it was when I did it, it just felt like it used to, the rearrangement of all of my particles into space…hey it's a lot better then getting ripped apart.
* * * *
When I opened my eyes again I was laying down in the middle of Hyrule Field right outside the Castle Gates. I remembered killing the Twili Messengers when I was still in that wolf form. And Midna was yelling at me 24/7. I smiled dispite my condition.
I looked around barely inching my head up from my current position, no sign of Midna…anywhere.
I got up frantically sitting up so I could see around me. There was a bokoblin, and a couple of Crows, but otherwise nothing. I fell back down my head banging on the dirt as I looked into the sky.
Fresh sky…light. No longer twilight. It was beautiful. Everything was beautiful. If only Midna was here to see it.
What was that voice? Where did it come from…? I looked around and then Midna popped up from my shadow. I screamed falling backwards my head once again landing in the grass, as a pure black Midna appeared above me.
She laughed in her high pitched giggle. She was back to her imp form, except she had none of the fused shadows on her face, as the last one had been destroyed by Ganondorf.
"Midna? But why-"
"Hey, if your shadow consisted of a big woman, don't you think people might be suspicious. And I can't walk next to you because I gave Zelda all her power back when I left the realm so she could live…So I can't be myself in the light."
"Oh…Well why are you an imp?"
"I cursed myself the same way Zant did. It's reversible because I now know how to reverse it. I can change back whenever I want but I felt that if you had a woman shadow people would think funny things. If I'm this way, then I can just hide in your shadow…"
"Oh…I liked you the other way," I said quietly.
She gave me a look, "Did you say something,"
"Yah, let's go.'
"To the woman who can heal me."
"No one can, our greatest doctors said so…" She looked down, "I'm sorry Link."
"I don't take no for an answer…" I felt better already looking up into the sun, breathing in the oxygen from the flower's surrounding me. "To the desert."
"The mirror? I shattered that, it's gone…"
"No, the Cave. The Cave of Ordeals."
Once again I felt the experience of being warped, inside I smiled it was nice to be back on a quest.
* * * *
I was on hot sand…it was seeping through my boots and my tunic, hot sand…I dragged myself to the nearby stone steps where I slowly descended dragging my dead leg by crawling. It was painful and hurt every step.
Midna popped up next to me, "Uh…Link what are you doing?"
"What needs to be done…I'm going to see the great fairy."
The imp gave me a face, "That's at least fifty floors down into the ground not to mind all the perilous drops to get down, the countless enemy's and the weapons required to pass."
I gave a small shrug, "I have to Midna, that's why I need you to get me my old stuff, all my weapons everything. Even the iron boots."
She complained, "But they weigh a ton…"
"Do it Midna."
"Fine," And she disappeared with a crack, warping back to my house to get all the stuff I had left behind. She could warp them all back to me. In the meantime I rested myself on the first level before the jump down. A bokoblin was roaming around oblivious to my heavy breathing above him.
Time passed as I decided what to do. Every ten levels the Great Fairy could talk to me, but it wasn't until the fiftieth when I could actually meet her. Now how to do this…most enemies I could kill with my bow, salvage the arrows and do it again. But some enemies wouldn't be affected especially the shielded Darknuts at the end.
It had taken me thirty tries to complete it the first time, barely escaping without losing my life thanks to Midna and sometimes getting warped out by the Great Fairy. But this time, I only had one shot…
But how to get down. It was a far jump, before I could just jump and land on my feet, it wasn't that far but when one doesn't have legs, it's far.
Then Midna reappeared beside me dumping all my items next to me making a big bang. The bokoblin picked up it's ears and started searching around for where the noise had come from. I started packing all my things into my magic pockets which could store everything in them shrinking their side until I needed them. One of the perks of being chosen by the goddesses.
I had an idea, it probably wouldn't work but I had to try. First I layed my body over the edge of the cliff, with my upper torso hanging off. I took out my bow, loaded an arrow from my quiver and steadied my hands, A clean shot through the heart.
The arrow zoomed past my hand lightly brushing my arm guard and ran it's way straight into the bokoblin. It went sprawling the exploded into black dust as most monsters do.
I smiled and pulled myself back up. Then I got up hugging to the wall to support my dead leg and took out my ball and chain. I got into a comfortable position so I was facing a wall not that far from me, and no weight at all was on my leg.
I swung the ball with all my strength, around around and around and then I threw it so it pounded against the wall. Quickly I let go before it dragged me to the ground. It banged against the floor. It was steel, nothing would be effected. I looked at the mark it had left in the wall. It was perfect, just the right side and indentation. It would take luck but lately I had been on the lack of it.
I took out my double clawshot and pointed it towards the crack. I made sure it was lined perfectly to the small crack so it would grab right on exactly. I pointed it at an angle so if it hit I would descend slowly…and then…I released sending the claw to the knick in the wall.
The claw attached to the place just like I thought it would and I sailed towards the wall happy as ever. After I reached it I could descend then touch the floor get my ball and repeat the process. The only thing was I never reached the wall.
My weight shoved the claw off a bit and it crumbled off of the wall and I fell face first into the dirty floor.
I felt blood trickle down from my nose. But that was the least of my worries. I checked over my ribs and arms. Nothing was broken, I was lucky…well not really.
I picked up the ball and chain and proceeded to the next room 1/50.
This one contained Keese and Rats. I shot them all with arrows and they exploded, I would salvage them all when I got down. But I couldn't afford another fall. I repeated the earlier process so this time after I used my Ball and Chain and let go of it I pulled out both my clawshots. I aimed one above the other but both at the crack, so that way I had to holds to support my weight. I lined them up exactly, then I released.
It was a direct shot perfectly attaching to the crack and both clawshots were able to hold me. Slowly I descended. As I got nearly a foot down I started to hear crumbling above me. The strain was too much on the tiny indent my clawshots had gone into. I quickly released and fell about a foot to the floor. It wasn't much but it still hurt a bit.
I got up and retrieved my arrows crawling…and crawling…I eventually collected them all and moved on again. The Deku Babas on the ceiling were much easier to take out and they already left cracks for me to use for my clawshots.
Slowly I advanced, using arrows, my boomerang, clawshots and the spiked ball to get past the first ten levels. The ones with the Bublin Archers were much harder because I had to shoot them while they were shooting me. The Lizalfos were stunned by my slingshot then I could shoot them with my arrow.
Everything I used could be salvaged which was great. Sometimes my clawshots would fail half way through and break through the crack due to the strain of weight. But it didn't matter much considering I made a quick descend. When I reached the Tenth floor I hopped down and met the spirit of the Great Fairy. She wasn't really there but I could talk to her.
She was hot. Really hot. Well…I really shouldn't let my hormones get in the way of my adventure…Anyway…I told her of my predicament and she agreed to heal me if I could complete all of the trials. Then she opened the next door and I continued.
The next room was tricky. There were tons of rats and a lot of arrows used. I made my way down after destroying them all and the Helmasaurs. This part was tricky the only way to move on was to get in the area through spinner. I took it out and set it on the tracks. I balanced myself on it, leaning on the wall and started it up. I fell off right away.
It took many tries to actually get it eventually I managed to stay on by shuffling my feet to move with the spinner so as not to lose my balance. I just made it into the area and proceeded with no trouble.
It wasn't until the 24 level when I had any trouble. It was full of Redead Knights. But I took them out with Bomb Arrows wasting ten. It was bad. I was down to a mere sixty arrows now. Some bent when fired at enemies. However any time I destroyed Bublin Archers I stole theirs as to replenish my stock.
I kept moving on. Throwing bombs down to destroy the Stalfos, shooting the Beamos, and stunning Bublins with my boomerang. It was level 39 when I faced my first couple of Darknuts. I fired bomb arrows until they were shredded of there armor. Then they threw their sword up at me which I narrowly dodged. I was low on arrows only had 20 left until I ran into more Bublins.
I then made the indent and dropped my Spiky Ball on one of the Darknuts killing them. I slowly descended aware of what was waiting for me beneath me. I fell the rest of the way and took out my Master Sword quickly out of it's sheath. I plunged it up and it fell right into the Darknut's heart destroying it as I fell the rest of the way to the ground.
That was too close. Way to close. I proceeded, this was getting boring and repetitive. I stole arrows from Bublins and concentrated on getting down to the ground, sometimes the Clawshots broke out of the wall early and I fell quite a distance.
By the time I reached the last two floors I was down to ten arrows and had many scratches cuts and bruises. In the first room was an Aeralfose and a Darknut. I put on my Iron boots and used my Clawshot to pull the the Flying Lizard towards me and struck it with my sword until it blew up in my face. I then fired five bomb arrows at Darknut then threw my Ball and Chain and getting it to fall on him. I made my descent. One room left. With four Darknuts. I was screwed. I dragged myself to my room. By now I was pale in the face, so much puss and blood had seeped through my wound I couldn't stand up if I tried. I couldn't even bring myself to lean on a wall. Midna sometimes floated next to me. We were both quiet. I gave the occasional grunt but otherwise no words were exchanged.
There they were. Standing quietly guarding the fairy. I didn't have enough bombs or arrows to take off their armor so I would have to improvise. I leaned over the cliff and threw my hunting knife at the first darknut nailing a shot right inbetween his helmet and his body armor, it cut through chain mail and killed him. He exploded. One down.
I emptied all of my oil from my latern onto my arrows and set them on fire by the torches next to me. I leaned over avoiding the heat and smoke and shot five at two more setting them on fire burning off their armor and eventually killing them. Three down.
I was happy. Now all I had to do was throw my ball and chain right. I aimed it right above him where it would hit the wall. I threw it and released. It left and indent but the Darknut moved at the last second avoiding the blow. I cursed and tried something else. I used my fishing rod trying to get the coral earing to get underneath his helmet so I could take it off. Instead the darknut cut off my string with his huge sword. He stamped the earing. I would have a hard time explaining this to Prince Ralis.
I had an idea. It would be risky. I took my sword in my hand and focused on the Darknut. If I could warp myself, why can't I warp him. I sliced the air right above me, thinking. Darknut. Blue Armor. Appear. Here. Midna popped up to stop me but it was to late.
A rip appeared above my head in the sky and the Darknut appeared right before me. He crouched over feeling the effects of his first warp and I smiled. My hands were now shaking. The warp had taken a lot out of me.
I grabbed hold of his slick blue armor and started pushing. He didn't look up in time to realize that I had pushed him right off the cliff. His heavy armor weighed him down and he fell extremely fast right towards the ground and hit with a sickening crunch as all the armor plunged into his skin and he blew up into black smoke.
I was so happy that I messed up the allignement of my clawshots and fell flat on my face. Nothing was broken but I was so happy I just got up and picked up my Ball and my Hunting Dagger and I moved to the last room.
There I met her. She came over and touched my face. She was topless with her hair just covering her breasts.
I collapsed as she touched me falling into the spring. She came over and a tear fell from her to my leg. Great Fairy Tears. They can cure anything in the world. They can be kept in a bottle. But only when fresh can they cure everything.
My wound closed up the last puss seeping from my leg. Yellow against my tan leg. The cloth around my injury also came back together. All of my other injuries including the cuts and bruises disappeared also. I pushed myself to my feet. I could stand again!
She stood up and kissed me on the cheek, "You were very brave sire." I smiled.
Oh my god. That was very very very very hard and long to write. I had to do research and come up with strategies. This is a bit boring. But next part should be interesting. Review if you want to find out how Link is going to get a new sword…Small hint.
