Romance / Adventure

Chapter 1

"I…I'm sorry, My Lord and Lady," Impa stammered. Tears threatened at the corners of her eyes. "I found…only this..."

A small tiara rested in her hands, forgotten in the plains of Hyrule.

"No," King Jerold whispered, Queen Lenaya letting out a sob.

"I…couldn't track her captors," Impa continued, her voice nearly cracking.

King Jerold took the small tiara from her hands. He stroked his thumb over the small jewels encrusted in the silver. He slowly lowered it from his sight, taking Lenaya in his arms. She cried into his shoulder, shaking. He nodded at Impa, dismissing her.

Impa's footsteps echoed in the throne room as she left. Her long, painful search for the young Princess Zelda had been in vain.


The Great Deku Tree looked down upon the Kokiri in front of him with hope. Saria, with tears in her eyes, shook her head. She put her hands in her face and wept.

"We couldn't save her, Great Deku Tree," Saria admitted, her voice muffled by her hands. "The woman's wounds were too severe."

A great sorrow washed over the wise spirit. "And the boy?"

"He's still with her," Saria answered, drying her eyes. "He doesn't understand. He's only five."

"His father was killed also," the Great Deku Tree said sadly.

"What is to happen?" Saria asked. "The boy can't go back to the village. No one is left there for him."

"Bring him back one last time with his mother," the Great Deku Tree said. "Saria, stay there with him to his parents have been given the proper respects. If there is anything the boy wishes to bring with him here from his home, let him."

"But, Great Deku Tree," Saria said, "it would be cruel to make the boy see the burial of his parents!"

"He will be more furious, I believe, as he comes to age and realizes we kept him from the burial," the Great Deku Tree answered with a sigh. "There is no other way, Saria."

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

MelanyFrey: This story is just so realistic and so amazingly written that I felt I was a part of it. It starts off completely ordinary, describing the lives of three young brothers, then slowly shifting the focus on one of them, putting him into the spotlight and following him into this unusual, but yet so r...
