Re: Shadow Link and the Unknown Power (T)
With a stern and determined expression, Link swiftly drew both his Four Sword and Master Sword. Everyone was amazed and somewhat delighted to see the Light of the Sols shine brightly from the Master Sword.
" Haha! The deities of the Twilight Realm have chosen well, you are our Hero after all." Teion said proudly. "Now show us the power of the Light that saved us!"
All 6 of the surrounding Twili Knights attacked Link simultaneously but Link fends them all off one by one but almost immediately they attack again forcing Link to dodge.
"Link, they're really fast!"
Link responded by transforming into Wolf Link.
"The Divine Beast!"
Teion expressed surprisingly.
Instantly Wolf Link dashed towards one of the Knights but was flung away by his shield. The Knight then swung down with his sword but Wolf Link jumped to the side and bit down on his arm. The Knight swung his arm around frantically but Wolf Link bit down harder on his arm and completely broke it off. The Knight staggered back and Wolf Link quickly followed up by slashing the Twili Knight across the face, defeating him. He then turned around and in a flash, downed another Knight with a bite through his neck.
He turned to see himself cornered by the remaining 4 Twili Knights. They converged on Wolf Link who countered with a spin attack. Acknowledging that his Wolf form was no longer effective, Wolf Link changed back and re-drew both his Master Sword and Four Sword.
This time, it was Link who moved first, attacking the Knight directly facing Link, the other 3 joined as well. The fight was long and hard. Neither Link nor the 4 Twili Knights were showing signs of fatigue or their fighting abilities wavering. But eventually Link was able to defeat the Knights by dodging the attack of the first one and spinning around to stab him in the back with the Light infused Master Sword, parrying the sword attack of the second one and delivering an upward slash with the Four Sword, jumping over the sword strike to somersault over the third Knight to deliver a Helm-Splitter with the Master Sword.
Finally it was just Link and the final Twili Knight facing each other. The dashed towards each other simultaneously. They both swung their swords as they dashed towards each other but Link spins around at the last possible second and impales the last Twili Knight in the back with the Master Sword
They both remained still then the last Twili Knight fell and Link just glared determined at King Teion. He re-sheathed both swords as Teion slowly walked towards Link. Both staring at each other. Then Teion smiled....
Then suddenly, attacks Link with blinding speed! Link was barely able to back-flip out of range and re-draw his swords before Teion drew his own sword and attacks Link again.
Link lands on his feet with the Four Sword and the Master Sword in-hand. He looks ahead expecting to see Teion...but he was gone!
"Hehe, Hey! Up here!"
Link quickly looks up to see King Teion upside down, standing on the ceiling!
"Well I suppose its quite obvious now that I'm more skilled the Knights you've fault, though at the same time, I know I shouldn't underestimate you as well."
Teion then immediately descended upon on Link with his own Helm-Splitter. Instead of jumping away, Link stood his ground and raised his own swords and blocked his attack. But almost immediately, Teion disappears again and re-appears behind Link spinning around and swinging his sword. Unable to react in time, a large diagonal slash gets driven into Link's back.
Alel cries out terrified.
"Father! You're hurting him!"
Midna adds with mutual expression.
"Hmph, you think so Midna?"
Teion replies in a confident tone then points to Link.
Link expressed no sense of pain. He just stood there with a serious demeanor, staring directly into King Teions' eyes.
"Haha! Face me, Hero Chosen by the Gods!"
With that, Link and Teion charge towards each other. The fight lasted for hours with neither one giving in or tiring at all. But Teion had a slight advantage with his incredible speed and agility and ability to teleport. He had absolutely no weakness at all. But with sheer will power and determination, Link was able to increase his speed, agility, and strength to almost that of Teion's.
"Hahaha! The courage of the Hero!" Magnificent!"
Satisfaction was painted on Teion's face. The intensity of the fight continued to increase, Link and Teion attacking each other, hard and faster. Link using every Hidden Skill taught to him by the Hero's Shade. The Sol Energy emanated brighter from the Master Sword like never before, responding to Link's courage and determination. Time slowed down as they fought.
Finally, Link and Teion facing each other. Neither of them exhausted. They charged at each other with full force and without any restraint, brandishing their swords.
They passed by, swinging their swords through each other. Motionless. Silence and motionlessness from everyone. It remained that way for what seemed like hours. Then suddenly, Teion and Link straightened up and sheathed their swords.
"Haha! Well done Link!"
Teion said heartily. Link smiled then turned to see the Knights rise to their feet, recovering from their injuries.
" Are you surprised? Despite our current state we Twili and Sheikah don't go down so easily."
" We Sheikah have especially learned to adapt to the Twilight and learn to regenerate."
Seem said happily as he walked forward.
" You were great as always Link!"
" The Twilight Knights are extremely strong and capable, they are even leagues above that of the Knights of Hyrule...no offense to the both of you of course."
" Hah! Non taken, my king."
Seem replied. Link agreed.
" I must say...I can understand your feelings for this young man now Midna! Haha!"
Midna replied almost blushing.
" In any case, you did great Link. I shouldn't be surprised. "
" Now that you've showed us. Its time to go."
Link nodded. A few hours later; Link and Alel were once again being led by Seem out of the Colossus. They stopped and Teion suddenly appeared right next to Link.
" Link, what you seek is in an extremely treacherous temple, as you know. But unfortunately the temple is within a giant monolith called the Black Sand Tower. Worse still, the entire structure is concealed within the Death Stone Wasteland. "
" Within the storm, dwells...another..."
Seem couldn't finish.
Alel asked, worried.
They both looked at each other then Teion explained.
" They call themselves...the...Garo...."
" The Garo...?"
Alel replied expressing confusion.
"...There once existed a parallel world, a legend existed within that world. Within this parallel world was a canyon. In the canyon lived a kingdom called the Ikana Kingdom. A kingdom with a blood-stained legacy developed by a long and extensive war with a neighboring race. An army of ninjas, unlike we Sheikah called the Garo. The war between the two races went on for centuries eventually destroying each other. Both races... annihilated by the aimless, senseless war and a canyon forever stained by the blood. "
"Yes, but there's one thing you've missed Seem. It's not a legend. It actually occurred."
Teion corrected Seem, gravely.
" And sadly, it only gets worse. Centuries later, an little imp possessed by the evil powers of a demon appeared and laid a curse on the canyon by awakening an evil within it's nearby temple. This curse re-awakened the dead. Both the Garo and the Ikana races were brought back and continued to fight their petty war, undead and completely unaware."
" That is until the Hero and your predecessor, the Hero of Time came to that canyon, broke the curse and laid all the suffering and lingering spirits to rest."
" Or so we thought....your shadow, Link. Seems to have taken the once dead Garo and brought them here to forever wander the Wasteland, to haunt it and to destroy all who wander. Your Shadow brought them here."
"But they aren't the only ones...."
Teion agreed reluctantly.
"Link, you know of Ganondorf. He was the King of the band of Thieves called the Gerudo. You know the evil mans' origins but you don't know the result that became the rest of his race afterwards."
" They were.....exterminated."
Link and Alel staggered back completely engulfed in shock. Link felt his heart begin to accelerate.
" Your Shadow, wiped them all out. Their souls were then caged into the Wasteland and the Black Sand Tower as well. Now there is a new war between both the Garo and Gerudo within the Wastelands' storms and the Tower."
" Both the Gerudo...and the Garo were brought....no... your Shadow...damned them here."
It was extremely difficult for Alel to even speak. Link just stood there...unable to absorb all that was told to him.
Teion turned to Link and placed two fingers on his forehead. Links'eyes then glowed bright purple.
" You now have the same ability that the Sheikah now have. The eyes to the see the truth. "
Teion told Link.
" Within the storms you're on your own."
" But this should help inside the Tower."
Hesitant but knowing what he must do. Link and Alel began to proceed.
" Good Luck, Hero and Alel."
They both said.
Before Link and Alel could leave, they heard another voice from behind them.
They turned to see Midna running towards them. Her face wrought with worry.
Her eyes beginning to water.
" Be careful..."
She said as she hugged him, with tears rolling down her face.
