The Crimson Loftwing Chapter 1The Guardian Ceremony
Link was ten years old.
He was lying in his bed, and he was ten years old.
He laughed a little, feeling blessed butterflies swirl in his stomach. He could tell it was very early in the morning by the weights under his eyes, but he wasn't tired for once. Usually he took every opportunity to sleep, but today . . . today was special.
Today was the day he met his Loftwing for the first time.
He rolled onto his side, cushioning his head with his arm. He couldn't stop thinking about it. All the ten-year-olds on Skyloft would meet in the highest place on the island; there, under the shadow of the great Statue of the Goddess, their Loftwings would come to them. It happened almost every year, for every generation. Sometimes there was only one child, looking up into the sky for a new shape; other times there was a large group, sometimes fifteen in number, whispering amongst themselves about their dream birds.
They always wondered what color their bi

"I was so stupid..." Jonouchi muttered, walking down the steps of the train station. "What was I thinking, trying to impress a woman?" Head drooping, he thought, Guess I was wrong. I had even less chance with Nurse Miyuki than with-
He looked up and saw Amber standing there, hands clasped behind her back. "How'd it go?" she asked with a small smile.
Jonouchi sighed, fingers sliding through his mass of bright blonde hair. "Could've been better," he muttered. He continued to walk past her; Amber turned, eyes worried, and walked next to him.
"... Would you care to elaborate on that?" she asked, her voice hushed.
His hands clenched in his pockets as he stopped. "She's heading to another hospital. I couldn't stop her."
Surprised, all Amber could say was, "Oh." She looked down, her fist over her heart. She expected to feel glad that the nurse had left, relieved that there wasn't another rival for Jonouchi's affections. Yet, all that consumed her heart was deep sorrow, dee

For a sound.
But nothing ever happened,
And no one ever came.
We waited for him.
But he never came.
A long plane ride in bitter silence,
Left alone with a crushing reality.
He was never coming home.
And we realize that no amount of wishin will bring him back to us.
But still we wait.
Wondering if he watches us or turns away in shame?
Wondering if he's proud of who we became?
Wondering if he will visit our dreams anymore?
And we wait in silence.
For a sound.

Demons in the shadows
They'll find a way
To get you.
Beatings, swallowing you.
Scars, defining you.
You know you're weak.
You can't fight a bully
When the bully's inside of you.

The road back home had been the longest journey Link had ever taken. Over the past many months, no matter where he had gone, he had always had a companion. Even after Midna had left, he had journeyed into the city with Zelda, and he had left again in the company of Shad and Ashei. Now, his thoughts were all that kept him company, and they were sad and lonely thoughts even in his victory … even in his happiness and comfort.
He had delayed his leave from the Sacred Grove for some time after returning the Master Sword, but after a while he had accepted that he, too, needed to return home. He had left Shad in capable hands. “Wherever the road takes you, be safe,” Ashei had said in farewell, and he imagined that Shad had only vaguely been aware of his departure, as he had completely fallen into his work of discovering the forgotten wonders of the Temple of Time.
Link did not speed his wa

Green looked at the clock. 'Five more minutes...' He thought. Blue, sitting in front of him, looked like he was ready to explode. Vio, in the back of the room, was reading a book quietly. Across the hall, Red was almost vibrating in his seat he was so excited. Shadow was trying not to laugh at how silly Red looked bouncing in his seat the way he was. Suddenly, the bell rang and the classrooms roared with cheers as the clock read 3:00 P.M. Green immediately got out his phone to call Princess Zelda, as she had left the day before on a long vacation. Vio put his bookmark back in his book, put his book in his bag, and went out to his locker. Shadow was already in the hall digging through his locker for any extra stuff he had left in it. Vio opened his locker door and grabbed a few books he had read but was going to read over the summer and put them in his pack. Vio's locker was by Shadow's and Red's, with Blue's on the other side of Red's and Green's beside S
