Side Story: Pillow Talk II
A/N: This is a combo. This is the fluffy, cute part. Second part is coming soon.
Zelda cleaned her face, brushed her hair and changed into a delicate nightie and robe, trying to look subtly more attractive.
She calmly awaited for Link to arrive while writing on her diary, smiling to herself as she recalled the events of the day.
The ink on the paper hadn’t even dried when a knock on the mirror door made her sprint quickly to open it.
The man on the other side brought a smile to her lips.
‘Hello again, love’, Link greeted her with a chaste kiss.
‘Hello’, she meekly answered, cheeks already rosier than usual. ‘You look like yourself again’.
‘Yeah, the stubble was good for keepin’ warm, but it’s kinda annoying’.
‘You looked good’, Zelda patted his cheek, ‘But I like you better like this. Come with me’.
She lead him by the hand to the fireplace and they sat close to the fire. A tray full of treats and a teapot was served on a low table. Zelda served some tea for both of them. She silently sipped her tea while Link gobbled down a cinnamon roll and a slice of lemon cake, certainly amused of her beloved’s appetite.
‘I didn’t realize I had a serious case of the munchies’, he said once done, ‘I missed this’.
‘Likewise’. She wiped a crumb stuck on his cheek. ‘You owe me an explanation’.
‘Oh, right’, he remembered, ‘Nayru’s Love’.
‘Long story short: lightning fell on a tree on top of a mountain wall. The tree collapsed. I was helpin’ out some rookies on the rear move a cart that was stuck in the snow. Part of the timber, and a shitload of snow and rocks fell upon us’ , he roughly narrated. ‘By all accounts, we should’ve died. Period’.
‘Goddesses’, Zelda whimpered.
‘But we didn’t… thanks to you, and the spell you taught me when you went with me to Ordon to meet Rusl and them folks’, he clarified, ‘so don’t be all pouty, love. It’s over, I’m here with you, and…’ - he lifted her by the waist, sitting her on his lap, to her surprise - ‘you are mine… I never thought you would reciprocate my feelings, and here we are, all happy and cuddly’.
'You are right’, Zelda rested her head on his shoulder. ‘which reminds me I should start teaching you magic’- she sat up straight- 'give me your hands, please’.
‘Zelda, you’re killing me’, he said, with a disapproving look. 'and the mood’. He put his hands to his sides, palms facing up.
‘It will be short’. Her fingers entwined with his, and both closed their eyes to resonate their triforces.
It was a completely new feeling compared to that first time in Ordon. Their thoughts, experiences, and feelings during the last months were very different from their first try. They were laughing at the exchange of each other’s memories, surrounded by the golden light.
'You actually liked me watchin’ your cleavage in Ordon!’, Link gasped, ‘cheeky! I’ve never forgotten ‘bout that darn mole!’
'I shall not delve into the details of your dirty thoughts about me’. She chuckled,already flushed. 'But I feel quite flattered’.
Well, that’s a surprise, Link thought, letting go of her hands, uselessly trying to hide what Zelda had already seen.
‘You do not have to feel bad, it is natural’, she laughed, caressing his cheek, ‘sooner or later we will be physically intimate’.
Link realized he could have freaked out at her affirmation, but she was actually right, and kept calm.
‘For your enlightenment, I have lived for almost twenty-one years surrounded by gossipy ladies’, Zelda tucked a strand of hair behind her ear, ‘I have heard more things about intercourse than I would like to’.
‘I have seen goats mate’.
‘Now you are killing me!’ -her eyes widened- ‘we should go back to your magic lesson’.
‘We should go back to this!’, and he interrupted her with a full kiss on the lips.
That was something Zelda could agree with.
