Hey guys, sorry I haven't been updating but this is now Stargazer's chapter! Ha ha! Whatever. Hope you guys enjoy.

Chapter 3: The Prince of Darkness

I awoke to sunlight streaming through my window, which was rare, as the weather outside was chilly with such a dark magical aura surrounding the castle. Of course, it was only ever chilly because Ganon wanted it to be. Helps deter wandering salesman, I suppose.

"Hell-lo" came a voice at my door. I shifted my body to see Velodronum, Ganon's sixteen year old son, standing in the door frame. "What?" A smirk. "Oh nothing, Cassandra, just wanted to visit you."

"What do you WANT?"

"I said I'm just visiting."

"Just TELL ME!"

"I was just wondering if you still have the immature habit of sleeping in only your bra and undergarments."

I flushed, wondering whether I should yell at him or coolly tell him to shut up. But before I could do either he walked into my bedroom and sat down on my bed. I looked at him in confusion, then decided on yelling at him.

"I SAID get OUT!"

He finally relented, shrugging.

"Ok, sis. But breakfast's ready."

Promptly, he left the room. I rolled my eyes. Was I really that imposing, I thought, Or is it just my imagination? I rolled out of bed and went to the door and locked it, just to be sure that annoying stepsiblings couldn't enter my bedroom without knocking. Locked. Perfect.

I sighed as I went to the washroom to tidy myself up a bit before breakfast. Here's the thing. Velodronum—or Vel as he prefers— hates his father. HATES him. H-A-T-E-S him. Honestly, I don't know WHY he just HAS to be so difficult. I never knew my father—never, ever in my life, not even in pictures— and grew up with people saying he was a hero. A hero, so that he saved the Princess from a monster and captured her heart. Sounds like something that shouldn't be real. Yet it is. But not completely. You see, when my dad first rescued my mom, he fell in love with her. Now think about it in my mom's view. A stranger clad in green breaks into her room while a monster is destroying the palace to get to her. No, my mother didn't love him on sight. Instead, she screamed at him.

"Who are you and what do you want from me?"

"I'm Link, and I'm here to save you. In case you didn't know, there's a monster rampaging outside. And if you'd like to take your chances against him, be my guest."

Zelda glowered at him. "And did you try stopping him before rescuing 'The poor damsel in distress'?' Zelda asked him.

"No," Link admitted. "But I wanted to make sure everything was okay with you before going to fight."

Zelda eyed him. "But do you?"

"Do I what?"

"Know how to fight?"

Link looked sheepish. "Well, now that you mentioned it… no, not exactly.

Zelda glowered at him. "So your saying that you came to rescue me without any idea of how to fight? Ugh. I bet I could beat you give it your best."

Zelda then magically summoned a spear with the Land of Hyrule symbol on it. Link stared. Zelda glared at him and brandisedbrandished the weapon towards his face. "What? Even princesses have to defend themselves." She muttered under her breath, "Especially boys who think they can rescue me while I'm perfectly fine of helping myself."

Zelda readied her weapon."Okay. Simple battle. You have to yield. Ready? Three, two,one,GO!"

Suddenly Link was pinned to the floor with the Master Sword out of his reach and the breath knocked out of him. It all happened so quickly Link didn't know what was going on untill Zelda pressed her spear to his neck and said, "Yield." He grumbled, "Fine. I yield."

Sorry for the cliffhanger, guys. I know that this chapter was not the best but, oh, well. Hope you guys enjoyed this chapter. Stargazer out. ;)
