Here. No comment.
Chapter 2: missionaries
I entered into blinding daylight, into the holy grounds of the Zora’s fountain. This was our main religion, although we did believe in the three goddesses like the rest of Hrylue. Ever since the deity of our race, lord Jabu- Jabu, rose to the heavens after the great freeze 100 or so years ago, we prayed to him once a week to protect us from another disaster like that.
I paid my due respects, then left. Even though I wasn’t truly a Zora, they required anyone living here to do so. I casually made my way back through throne room, to the basin, and to my room.
About an hour later, a Zora messenger came up to my door. “What’s up?” I said, approaching him.
“The king requests your presence. Yours and Ralek’s.” He said.
What did Ralek do this time?
It was sarcastic, of course. Ralek and I never got in any real trouble. That the king wanted us for something was troubling, however.
“All right, We’ll be up in fifteen or so minutes.” I said.
“Very well. I’ll inform him at once.” He said, and jumped back into a pool swimming toward the throne room. I walked to Ralek’s room, which was a few doors down.
“Hey, the king want’s us for something.” I said, inviting myself in. He was in the corner, practicing with his fin-blades on a dummy.
“What for?” He asked
“How should I know? Some messenger just came up to my room.”
“All right, better not keep him waiting.”
We once again traveled down to the central lake, then stopped in the corridor before the throne. We were a few minutes early, and the king was talking with someone.
“Wait.” I said in a whisper. “Let’s see what they’re talking about.”
“Sounds good.” We pressed up against the wall, and crept forward as much as we could, while remaining in the shadows.
A zora said, most likely his confidant.
“Wouldn’t it be less risky to wait for-”
“I’ve taken risk enough waiting this long!”
The king shouted.
“We’ll be doomed if we wait any longer!”
“But the legend says that the hero will-”
“A LEGEND will not save my kingdom! We’ve waited enough, and must take fate into our own hands!”
“I suppose you’re right...”
“... As you know, the forces in all the temples are growing, and the Hylian knights have already fought back some troops from the one in Kakariko. If we let them grow, they will attack. And unite. And should that happen... He might return.”
The king’s confidant could not stifle a gasp.
“Then we must do something! Anything!”
He said, now panicking.
“My motivation exactly.”
“Then you have my support, my lord.”
I motioned for Ralek to back up, and I followed. When we were a good 10 feet away, we walked in, casual and right-on-time. “You requested us, my lord?” I said.
“Yes. I have an extremely important mission to ask of you.” He said, grim. “Firstly, markus, I want you to go to the zora shop, and tell the owner I sent you to get a sword. He will give you a fine blade, made specially for non-Zoras.”
Why would he want me to have a sword...?
“Next, I need you both to take the portal deep in the central lake, and use it to go to lake Hylia. There, you must dive to the depths, to the water temple. A massive dark force is rising there, with the power of our greatest treasure to fuel them. Kill them all, then bring the sapphire back to me.”
I was shocked, but still I said: “As you wish, my lord.”
“Then you are dismissed.” We left through the entranceway, both stunned.
