Derge cocked his head, still troubled by Links appearance. The manic glee of destruction, however, never left his eyes.
"Kill the boy slowly," he grated with relish, "and bring the traitor to me alive."
The horde advanced on all sides. Even standing back to back, it would be insanity to defend from such an onslaught.
Fueled by that insanity, Link turned and swung hard at the ropes holding Ilia. The young woman on her part got up, greatly uncertain.
"What?" Links command rang in her head. Ilia couldn't imagine the inevitable.
"Get out of here. We'll keep them occupied. Get word to the queen and court, Hyrule faces invasion. Ilia," Links face betrayed no pain or fear, save for the tears that were falling from his eyes, "please. When you start running, don't look back."
Now it was Ilia's turn to cry.
"If this is your time to die, then it

Link swung Alvar`ad at a gerret as it swept close, but missed it. He was about to counterstrike the gerret's attack when Hawkfoot darted in from behind. With a swipe of his saber, the gerret ripped through the back of Link's knee.
The pain was indescribable.
Link felt a surging rush of evil power course through him, leaving him paralyzed as he fought to keep it from taking his mind. It powered through every nerve, every sinew in his body, leaving him feeling like his insides were on fire.
And that was just a graze, Link thought; I don't think I want to know what a direct hit is.
Erik, meanwhile, nimbly spun to the left, dodging a thrust from a cutlass. He deftly moved the blade way with Soulsaver, tracing along the edge before slamming the entire length of the blade through the gerret's head. In retaliation, one jumped on his back, snapping away at his shredded back with its jaws. Eri

"What?" Link asked disbelievingly.
"Gone," Raura mumbled, her eyes beginning to roll, "Ordon fallen "
"Damn it, speak sense, woman!" Link roared and without any further ado, drew back and slapped her across the face. Raura yelped in shock, but it was effective. When she faced Link again, she was coherent.
"Link, I'm so sorry," she wailed as she fell into his arms, "I saw a vision, a horrible vision. I saw Ordon in flames and several people killed. Slaughtered, Link, like animals! There were strange monsters and soldiers everywhere. The bore a standard of red with black dragon skulls. I don't know what it means. But then I saw a giant of a man, riding a horse, holding Ilia by the hair. Oh, Link, They're gone, I tried to feel them, but they're gone. They're gone!"
Link stood in shock. His mind was racing.
"Maybe it hasn't happened yet. T

Baron Alphonso Vivian Keddlesly, Lord of Calarosa, was feeling particularly smug as he strutted into the Great Hall of Hyrule Castle. He was tall and burly, and rather handsome for a man of his overbearing nature. He was dressed in ceremonial armor of solid gold, with silver attach straps and a very showy, over adorned sword and sheath at his side and a long red cape trailing behind him. He wore no helmet and instead wore a golden circlet adorned with sapphires on his head. Aloof and regal, he walked with nose stuck unashamedly in the air, a servant by his side carrying a mirror which Keddlesly often used to admire himself.
When this narcissist of a man came boldly to the throne room door, he snapped his fingers and his aides swept forward and opened the door for him. The instant it was clear for him, the baron strode in without a backwards glance at his underlings.

The Hylian soldiers received a very rude awakening when Erik strode into the barracks and roared in rapid succession. "All feet to deck, now! I want you all fully armed and out on the parade ground in fifteen minutes. Move yerselves or I'll teach you a new meaning to the word breakfast."
Not used to such harsh treatment from such an aggressive captain, some of the soldiers started moaning and shouting at Erik to be quiet at such a horrible hour.
"Shaddap, ya great galoot," grumbled one thin guard whose eyes were covered by a shock of blonde hair, "we take no ordas from ya-"
Every soul in the room jumped as Erik let off a series of flashing explosions from his hand.
"From hence forth," Erik snapped, "I am your chief lieutenant and your teacher. Therefore, you will follow my orders to the letter. Now move. You now have ten minutes."
Turning briskly on his h

Übervor kept the posse moving at a startling pace. The sluggish Jur-kaakor were hoisted on the backs of gerrets and bone-eaters. Wilek himself was chained to the back of a massive bone-eater named Backsnapper. In two days, the ghastly entourage had assented the mountain range and were traveling south along the ridge. The further they moved, Wilek saw signs of invasion. Gerrets were weeded among the rocky land. Bone eaters marked certain check points and even closer, a great, utterly massive shape almost as big as the mountain reared and roared deafeningly.
Gartail sniggered, "Haharr, ole' Grendel's 'ungry again!"
"That's no newssss!" laughed another gerret beside him, "Grendel's alwayssss hungry!"
Wilek tried his best not to think wheth
