Disclaimer: I do not own Zelda; Miyamoto-san does.
It was either late at night, or early in the morning, but I don't know. Having been spooked by another nightmare, I quietly take my cloak from my wardrobe and put it on. Trying not to wake my father, I slowly open the door of our house and walk outside. The moon lights the path I walk upon, shimmering beautifully. I make my way towards my best friend's house.
His name is Link. Just his name gives me butterflies. We've been best friends since I could remember. We do everything together. Every day we ride our birds together over the Surface. It's hard not to have a crush on him. He has big, beautiful blue eyes and full lips. His brunette hair looks so messy, it reflects his personality. I wish I could run my hands through his hair… He's always there to cheer me up. He's a joker, a charmer… Link's like the stereotypical Prince Charming, to me, anyway…
Anyway, I climb through the window that he keeps open for me, just in case. He's been doing this since I've began to have these strange nightmares. I take my cloak off and put it on a dresser of his. Trying not to make a sound, I slowly creep toward Link's bed where he is sleeping. Correction: where he was sleeping, because he shifts and I can see him open those blue eyes.
"Zel?" his deep, muffled voice asks. I sit beside him on his bed. I notice he doesn't have a shirt on (and in truth I squeal inside) and he's only wearing the pants of his usual Skyloftian garb. His hair is as messy as ever, and it looks perfect on him. A blanket is over his shoulders.
I take his hand into mine and say, "I had another nightmare. It really frightened me…" I trail off, sniffling. He sits up and murmurs an 'aw,' bringing me into a warm hug. A few hot tears rush down my face. His hand glides up and down my back. I can feel his muscular body against mine through my knee-length night gown.
Pulling back a little, he asks, "Do you wanna talk about it?" He's hesitant about the question. Lately the nightmares have been getting worse and worse, and he knows that.
I, too, am hesitant to answer, but speak up. "Well… I was held captive by a tall, skinny, grey-skinned guy who was calling me 'Your Holiness' which was kinda freaking me out… He had great hair though," I joke, and we both laugh. Link nudges me, urging me to continue. "I was in chains, and then you enter the room, wearing a green tunic and floppy hat with a sword on your back," My voice starts to crack as I say the next sentence. "Then you and the guy started to have a swordfight in front of me… and… and…" More tears fall as I remember the nightmare, how that guy was killing Link, and was about to finish him off before I woke up in panic. The thought of Link being murdered in front of me scared me to death, especially when I was helpless to help him. I lay my head on Link's shoulder, sobbing as quietly as I could.
"Sh, sh…" He whispers while I nuzzle my head against the crook of his neck. Taking my chin, my best friend tilts my head up so that our faces are leveled. "Hey, hey… I promise that if you're ever held captive by a tall, skinny, grey-skinned guy with great hair, I'll come, kill him, and rescue you," He smiles that gorgeous smile of his and I lightly hit his shoulder for joking about it. "Ow, Zelda, that hurt," He whines. I laugh at his childness.
Link lay back down with me still in his arms. I was right by his left ear, so I whispered, "I hope you win the ceremony tomorrow. I'm not happy about being a prize of sorts, but if you win it won't matter to me…" I then kissed his cheek, and felt his face stretch into a smile. Being tired, I wrapped my arms tight around Link and rested my head on his shoulder. He draped the blanket over me, and I dozed off.
My dreams were filled with happiness. Link had that effect. We were flying on a bird, laughing, full of happiness… Again, he was wearing that green tunic and floppy hat with a different sword on his back. Also on his back was a shield that had a strange triangle made of three smaller ones. Despite that, it just felt… Right, in a sense…
"Zelda," a muffled voice says. "Zel, wake up," it says again. I open my eyes and see Link's blue orbs before me.
I smirk and bury my face closer to him. "Just a few more minutes…" I lazily whine.
He sighs, half annoyed, half content. "Zelda, if you're father sees you in my bed, he's gonna kill me. Who's gonna rescue you then?" Link references to our conversation a few hours ago.
"Okay, okay, getting up," I sit up, brushing my hand through my hair. Link stands up and helps me up too. Hugging him, I whisper, "Good luck," and standing on my toes, kiss his forehead. He pulls me a bit closer and briefly kisses my lips.
My face turned bright red and I could feel it heating up. His lips were chapped, but I didn't mind a bit. I got the familiar feeling of 'right' that I had in my dream.
Link breaks the embrace and helps me into my cloak. I say my goodbye to him and climb out the same window I came in.
A thought occurs to me, though, and I stick my head into his house through the window again. "Thanks, Link… For always being there for me," I smile and wink.
Okay, been a while, huh? Yeah. It's school's fault. Deal.
Crap-load of speculation going on here. This is obviously Skyward Sword Link and Zelda. So, I'm assuming that Zelda lives with her dad, Link lives alone, etc. What I do know is that in this game Link is apparently openly smitten with Zelda, and she shares these feelings.
If you guys haven't seen the new trailer, go see it now. And the demos. The demos are AMAZING.
