Author's Note- The Zelda characters do not belong to me........

Link sat on the forest floor. His blue eyes fixed on the water that ran over his boot. Slowly he rose and stretched. Malon had walked up behind him, and put a delicate hand on his shoulder.

"Link, I'm so sorry. It's not my fault, I swear!" Link looked back at her. His eyes looking into her eyes.

"Leave me Malon, I don't want anything to do with you anymore. Zelda's gone. She's gone..." He turned and faced Epona. He mounted her.

"There was nothing I could do. She died Link. You have to face that. She wasn't killed. She died giving birth to your son!" Link whimpered a little bit. He flashed an angry glance at her.

"Never speak of my son again Malon! At least you could have stopped her bleeding! You could have made a remedy." He sighed and looked away.

" No Link! There was nothing I could do! She bled to death, I couldn't stop it. I tried everything Link! She DIED!" Malon stepped back and ran away. Link watched her run, and galloped back to the castle. When he reached the Castle Stables, Saria was sitting on a gate waiting for him.

" Saria, what are you doing here?" Link asked putting Epona away in the pasture.

"We need to talk Link. Maybe over tea in the Courtyard." Link nodded and they left to the courtyard.

When they reached the courtyard, tea and pastries were waiting for them. He sat down on one of the garden chairs. Saria sat across.

"Now, what is it that you wanted to talk about?" Link asked taking a sip of the strong herbal tea.

" You need to apologize to her Link." Saria said taking a nibble of a strawberry pastry.

"Apologize? Apologize to whom?"He asked.

"To Malon, it's not her fault she died Link, you must understand that Link. You're breaking a wonderful friendship." Link stood up and pointed towards the palace gates.

"Go." Saria stood. Tears formed in his eyes. She put a hand on his broad shoulder.

"Your losing people Link. Be careful." She left him there. He started to weep. Link smashed the plate of tea and pastries to the ground with a heavy blow. He ran back to his corridor in the castle. He lay in his bed while tears streamed down his cheeks. He closed his eyes and tried remembering his wedding.

"Zelda, I love you. This wedding will be perfect. Our lives will be perfect." Link smiled down at Zelda.

"Oh Link I love you so much. I'm so happy that you're marrying me." She put her arms around link's neck holding him tightly. He held her closely. He could feel her tears of happiness on his shoulder.

Malon appeared, and tapped Zelda on her shoulder. " Madam, it's time for your dressing. Come along, it's your big day milady." Malon smiled widely. Zelda cleared off her tears and followed staring back at Link. One of Link's friends took him by the cuff of his shirt and led him to his tent for his dressing.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Link wiped some of his tears away and smiled more about his memories of the wedding.

Zelda walked down the isle with her father. Her beautiful, silky, white gown trailed behind her. Flowers were placed in her blonde hair. Her skin lightly powdered, and her lips were lusciously red. She seemed to glow.

Link looked deep into her eyes when she reached the altar. They held hands, and listened to the priest. When they finished their vows, and exchanged rings, Zelda started to blush a vibrant pink.

Then the priest announced, " You are now Husband and Wife, you may now kiss the bride." Link raised her Vail and took her head in his hands, and kissed her. They kissed passionately, more passionately than they ever had before. After a minute, he stepped back and they ran down the isle hand in hand while the guests threw rice in the air.

After the wedding party, they went to their suite at the INN. Inside, there was a small table which held a bottle of the INN's best wine, and two crystal glasses. There was a king sized bed made up in red silk and velvet. There was also a small lit fire place, a balcony, and two large chairs by the fire.

Link paced around his room. Tears kept flowing down his face. He smiled an laid down on his bed. He looked over besides him. He rubbed his hand over the place where Zelda once slept. He always forgot that she wasn't there in the morning. He'd always try not to cry in the mornings, but tears usually came out.

"Sire, your son is crying. Would you care to take care of him. I'm warming milk in the kitchen." Link smiled and took the infant into his arms. He cradled it and tried to hush its crying. He looked out the window, and saw Malon standing at the Castle gates talking to a soldier.

Please R&R.........sorry if it's kinda short......I'm trying to make them longer.......
