These are songfic drabbles. In other words, there are songs that deal with parts in different Zelda games, different characters in Zelda games, and/or different pairings. I will use different songs and I will let you know what they are.

This first one is a part in Twilight Princess. The ending, and it's in Midna's point of view. This song is What Hurts the Most by Rascal Flatts. It's not mine.

Disclaimer: I do not own Zelda or the songs I use.


What Hurts the Most


The weather was lovely that day, as we stood in the Mirror Chamber, staring at the black Mirror that reflected the Twilight. Beautiful weather. Bright sunlight and only one cloud in the sky.

Oh, how the weather was mocking me.

I was torn. I knew exactly what I had to do, but I didn't want to. Just the thought of it broke my heart into one more piece. But if I didn't, I would be torn in two, one part of me in the Twilight, the other in the Light.

Thats why I made the decision to destroy the Mirror.

I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house, that don't bother me
I can take a few tears now and then and just let them out

As we made our way toward the Mirror Chamber after defeating Ganondorf, I thought, and thought. I always pushed that away, and I would stray my eyes to Link, who walked beside me. His sapphire blue eyes shined in the sunlight, his blonde locks waving in the wind. But it wasn't his appreance that I was in love with. It was him. The way he pushed everything that was personal to him just to save Hyrule. The way he ignored his own desires and fought only for his world. The way he seemed to continue on with me, even when I annoyed him and mocked him.

He was just...perfect.

I'm not afraid to cry
Every once in a while even though goin on with you gone still upsets me
There are days
Every now and again i pretend i'm okay but that's not what gets me

But I couldn't be torn between my people and him. It would be too much.

When we had stopped to sleep that night before we came to the Mirror Chamber, I stayed awake while everyone slept, finally making the decsion to destroy the Mirror. And it nearly killed me. If Twilian's could cry, I would have indeed been crying.

But no matter how hard I tried, I could find no way to express what I felt for the Oridian boy who had stolen my heart. I couldn't come out and say it. I tried, even when I was alone, but it was inpossible for me to say. And so, my heart shattered into one more piece.

And now, as we stand before the Mirror, and can't take my eyes off him. I...I can't let him distract me I keep trying to tell myself, but it never works. The blonde haired blue eyed teenager had stolen my heart, and now, I couldn't give it back.

What hurts the most, was being so close
And having so much to say
And watchin you walk away
Never knowing, what could have been
And not seein that lovin you
Is what i was tryin to do

We stood their in the chamber, in total silence. The wind blew up sand from the ground, and it sparkled in the beautiful sunlight. My hair whipped around me, and my eyes would not move from the ground. I couldn't look at him, or I would probably change my mind, and my entire life would be chaotic. But I knew I at least had to say something.

"Well...I guess this is farewell, huh?" I said quietly. After a moment, I finally lifted my eyes, purposely avoiding Link and looked toward Princess Zelda...She had risked so much for me. At once, we had even been one. But Link...he had risked more...and that was another reason I couldn't look at him. To break the deafening silence, I spoke again. "Light and Shadow can't mix, as well as we all know..." I knew this too well, and I felt as if I had released my feelings for Link into the air, and was trying to catch them, and forget they were ever spoken. I lifted my gaze up to the sky. "But never forget there is another world bound to this one." The silence again rung in my ears, and I was ready to speak again, but Zelda came to my rescue.

"Shadow and Light are like two sides of the same coin," she spoke, looking right at me. She looked down at the sand, hovering above the ground. "One cannot exist without the other." She looked up again, a smile on her beautiful face. "I now know the reason that the goddesses left the Mirror of Twilight in this world..." She looked at the black Mirror. "They left it because it was their design that we should meet." She was silent a moment, before she looked back at me. "...Yes. That is what I believe."

It's hard to deal with the pain of losing you everywhere i go
But i'm doin it
It's hard to force that smile when i see our old friends and i'm alone

I stood in silence. Zelda's words spoke true, and I was at the brink of changing my mind and keeping the Mirror intact...No! I can't! There was no way I could turn back now. My mind was set. The Mirror would be destroyed, and the path between worlds closed forever.

I was silent a few more seconds before I turned back to Zelda. "Zelda...Your words are kind and your heart is true..." I smiled sadly at her, and she returned the smile. "If all in Hyrule are like you then maybe..." For the first time I looked at Link, who was smiling at her, a glint in his sapphire eyes. I felt my breath catch in my throat, and I had to swallow before I could continue. "You'll do alright."

I trained my eyes on Link for a few moments longer, before I tore myself away and walked up the steps to the Mirror, my robe whipping in the wind. This was it...Twilight and Light would never mix again.

Still harder gettin up, gettin dressed, livin with this regret
But i know if i could do it over
I would trade, give away all the words that i saved in my heart that i left unspoken

As I stood next to the Mirror, I looked down at the two Hylians, before I lifted my arm, and the Mirror suddenly started glowing. I watched sadly as it reflected into the large black stone, and the rode between worlds was open. I was silent, struggling to keep myself straight as I looked back at Link. A small sob found it's way in my throat, but I refused to let it release. I swallowed it, and spoke.

"Thank you..." I said quietly, smiling at Link. "Well, the Princess spoke truely; As long as the Mirror's around, we could meet again." How ironic. Those words were highly ironic. When Link smiled, I felt myself tremble slightly. He nodded.

"I' that," he said, his sapphire eyes trained on me. I nodded, smiling my own mysterious smile. I turned around, facing the Twilight that loomed before me. This was it. It was now or never, and I couldn't back down. With a shuddering sigh, I turned around, looking down at Link. After staring at him a moment, I closed my eyes, and felt a single tear slip from my eyes.

Twilian's couldn't cry, so why was I? I am becoming more human by the second.

What hurts the most, is being so close
And having so much to say
And watchin you walk away
Never knowing, what could have been
And not seein that lovin you
Is what i was tryin to do

"Link..." The single wet droplet floated in front of me, and I opened my eyes to stare at it. A single, violet and blue tear, floating in the air. I nudged it, and it moved forward slightly. With a small, nearly silent whimper, I pushed the tear forward. I stuttered on my words.


I couldn't say it. I couldn't tell him I loved him.

As the tear inched closer to the Mirror, I smiled. It was funny how my life worked out.

"...See you later..."

What hurts the most, was being so close
And having so much to say
And watchin you walk away
And never knowing, what could have been
And not seein that lovin you
Is what i was tryin to do

And the Mirror shattered.

With a small cry that was muffled out by the shattering Mirror, I raced up the steps into my world. And I hesitated. I turned around, the smile still plastered on my face.

"Midna? Midna, what are you doing?!"

I looked at Link with the same sadness in my eyes. How could I explain it? I felt myself be picked up from the wind, and blown into my world, little by little. I stared at Link's eyes, my smile sad and bittersweet.

If only you knew...I love you...

"Link..." I whispered, as my vision went dark and I disappeared into the Twilight.

I heard the pieces of the Mirror clattered to the ground.

And still yet, I smiled.

Not seein that lovin you
that's what I was tryin to do…
