The Legend of Zelda: Child of Darkness

Chapter One: The Child is Born

A young mother looked down at her newborn baby, her jet black hair falling over her light green eyes. She held it in her arms and stared at the tiny being. Like most mothers, she felt very connected to her new baby. Unlike most mothers, though, she felt uneasy, as if it wasn’t supposed to be this way.

“How could something so beautiful come from such a monster?” She thought out loud. She stared at its dark skin and partially red hair. “How could I let it happen?” As horrible images and terrible thoughts entered her mind, a small boy approached the woman.

“Mommy, is that my baby sister?” the boy asked. He was no older than two or three years of age with light skin, blonde hair, and blue eyes. The mother snapped back to reality.

“Yes, Link, she is.” The woman said, looking at her first born child.

“How come she doesn’t look like me?” Link asked. His mother didn’t know what to say. If she told him the truth, she might scare him. How could a toddler possibly understand that this child’s father and Link’s father were not the same man?

“Sometimes people are just born different, Link” she finally replied.

“Oh. What’s her name, mommy?” Link asked.

“Well, I haven’t named her yet. What do you think it should be?”

“Um… Lock, ‘cause it starts like mine.” Link said, smiling to his mother.

“Then Lock it is.” She replied. She laid the baby down in a crib and went to pick up Link. Just as she crossed the doorway, a young man came to the door.

“Morania, may I come in?” The man asked, waiting for her to answer the door.

“Come in, Ezlo.” Morania replied. A tall young man walked into the house. Although he was young, his hair was silver like that of an old man. His eyes were a deep brown and his skin was slightly tanned. He saw Morania walking toward her son.

“Morania, you shouldn’t be up already. The nurses told me you gave birth only hours ago. You should be resting.”

“I am a strong woman, Ezlo. I can stand if I want to. Besides, there’s work to be done.” Morania replied. She was obviously very tired, but she tried hard not to show it.

“May I see the child?” Ezlo asked. Morania looked over to the crib, indicating where the baby was sleeping. Ezlo walked over to the crib and examined the child.

“She looks like him… I’m not sure if I can deal with that.” Morania said. Ezlo continued to look the baby over.

“Maybe, but she still has the ears of a Hylian. Are you sure you’re alright?” He asked. Morania kept silent and sat down on her bed.

“He’s still out there somewhere. I know it. I’m afraid, Ezlo. I’m afraid that this child will only bring him back and cause more suffering for us all.”

“It’s best not to bring up such things. I’m sure your husband wouldn’t have wanted you to be this way.”

“I know, but…” She stops and looks at Link, who is preoccupied with watching his little sister. “I don’t want anything to happen to Link. I know that his future holds something wonderful.”

“You need to think about the baby, too. Just because her father is who he is, that doesn’t mean you can’t change her future as well.” Link then interrupted their conversation.

“Mommy, when will Lock wake up?” He asked.

“Soon, Link. She needs to sleep right now.”

“Okay, mommy. Hi, Ezlo. I love my new baby sister!” Link said as he went back to the crib. Ezlo looked over at Morania.

“Stay strong, at least for Link’s sake. I’m sure that the same bloodline that had protected you and Link then will do the same for her.”

“I’m not so sure that even the blood of the sages could stop this now…” Morania stared blankly at the floor.

“You must have faith. The goddesses will protect them both. Trust me.” They both looked over to where Link was standing over Lock’s crib.

“Hi, Lock. I’m your brother!” Link said as his little sister woke up. “Wow, her eyes look like mommy’s!”

“I hope you’re right, Ezlo, I truly hope you’re right.”

Comments on this chapter

Linndog says:

This is an "okay" beginning. The descriptions are adequate, but nothing superb. The dialogue is a bit choppy, also. There are quite a few typos and grammer mistakes, so I suggest a quick edit. Other than that, you're on the right track, so keep going.

Adlez47 says:

I'm into the whole drama thing, so I like it. But I do agree, check your spelling & grammer.

LinkFan says:

Ah, thank you for pointing out the grammer mistakes. For some reason, spell check didn't find thoes...hmm... wel, I'm glad you like it so far. Sorry that the first chapter is a tad bit boring. I'll try to fix that in other chapters and I'm always open to suggestions on how to make it sound better!

Linndog says:

The biggest suggestion I can give is to add more substance. The first paragraph is good, but your descriptives drop off throughout. I'm guessing you got caught up in your story and forgot that the reader can't see what you're seeing. Body language is more important in stories than you can imagine. Try to make us feel like we're in the room.

Zeldas Shadow says:

It's cool. In the other storys, Lock falls in love with Link. But in this one, Lock is his sister. So, this one is much better then the others, so keep up the good work!

Tenshi Oni says:

Yeah, keep it up :3
