I won't forget, I'll be with you
Disclaimer: I don't own Legend of Zelda.
The ocean, it was so long since I had seen it. It was so vast and majestic that I almost missed it.
My previous quest started to fade from my memory as reality came back to me. The Wind Fish soared above me and cried in a form befitting of gratitude.
It was a good feeling to know that I had helped another. I smiled as my friend disappeared into the clouds. Time was short as I remembered what I originally set out for.
Now it was time to forget my adventurous dream and find a way to protect my home. But there would be one thing that I could not forget.
I wanted so much to believe that you were real throughout my journey on Koholint island.
Even when I knew the truth, even when your creator told me who you were. I didn't want to believe it.
Even if I did save somebody, even if you were a dream, I ended you.
Ultimately, ending so many people, especially one such as Marin, makes me feel less of a hero.
What would Hyrule think? Would they say that I was justified, that it was heroism?
I didn't feel justified, and I didn't feel like a hero.
I'll never forget you. Even if I forget about the Wind Fish, even if I forget about Koholint island, I won't forget your kindness and your voice.
Please forgive me, I'm sorry I erased you.
You don't need to be sad. Somebody who exists is alive again, no longer plagued by their nightmares.
My existence was void, but you still chose to remember me.
Even if you knew that I didn't truly exist, you still wanted to believe that I did.
You loved my singing, you loved my kindness. It made me so happy to be with you.
Freedom is my wings now, as is with all of Koholint Island. But if you still feel sad, then I'll also be in your heart, always.
Don't feel sad, and don't feel like your not a hero. Because you truly are a kind hero.
I forgive you.
The sky is as vast and majestic as the ocean below it.
Seagulls glide on the wind, flapping their white wings with freedom.
I can be envious of that, being able to fly across the ocean. It sure is better than riding on a boat, or wreckage of a boat.
Repairing my boat was a good action to take, but I still regretted.
But sorrow was lifted from my heart when a bird flew right past me in a random direction.
Oddly, seeing that bird felt so comforting to me. And I could feel the urge to move on back in my heart.
But I swear that I will never forget that place, even if it was a dream.
I swear that I'll never forget you.
Thanks for reading this one, hope you liked it. Link's Awakening is a nice little game and I always felt like there was some romance meant to be had between Link and Marin. So to combat my feelings of emptiness in that he never was able to say goodbye to her, I made this.
