Welcome Home, Little Shadow…
The skies were sprinkled with twinkling stars that danced around the bright, pure white moon. It’s glow was soft and gentle, filtering through the treetops of the forest. A whispering breeze blew through the area, rustling the leaves and stirring the waters of Ordon Spring. The crickets quietly chirped along to the rhythm of nature, adding to the peaceful serenity of nightfall.
However, none of it was enough to calm Midna at all. She sat upright, leaning against the headboard of the bed, her sudden motion barely affecting her slumbering husband beside her. She clutched her round abdomen, in which a new life was growing, waiting to meet the world. But…the wait would not be for much longer.
“Oh gods…this really hurts… Aah!” she groaned, clenching her teeth. “Link…” she whimpered, doubling over in pain. Suddenly, she felt her night gown and the sheets beneath her being soaked by something. She quickly inspected her hands, becoming more frantic once realized what the liquid wasn’t. “Link! Wake up!” her cries were louder now, and she noticed Link’s ear twitch in response.
