Ever since the death of Hyrule's king, however, Zelda has noticed strange changes within her brother, the fellow holder of one of the three triforce pieces entrusted upon them.

Unfortunately, Zelda is right to be worried...
Zelda: Not much to her in this, other than being piercingly perceptive about issues being wrong.

The German solider was tossing and turning in his bed. Having another nightmare Suddenly his eyes shot open quickly sitting up in a cold sweat. He quickly glanced around the dark room, reassuring him he was home. He quickly ran his hand through his short blonde hair and sighed deeply. There was a small knock on the door. "Who is it?" the German asked groggily. "Ve~ it's Feliciana " he heard the smaller country peep. The door opened slightly and saw her standing behind it. She normally made her way into Ludwig's room in the middle of the night. He signaled her to come in. She smiled and scurried in, closing the door behind her. She was wearing one of Germany's large shirts to sleep. The small Italian girl crawled into Germany's bed cuddling close to him. He wrapped his large muscular arms around her. Feliciana rested her head on the Germans chest and sighed quietly. "Germany?" she whispered. "Yes?" he asked. "I had another bad dream ." She mumbled

"You have no idea how glad I am to see you are alright," sighed Makoto as he clasped Gai's hand.
"Likewise," smiled Gai.
Makoto eyed the battered and bruised ninja briefly before a worried expression crossed his face, "Where's Hani?"
"I'm here," sounded her soft voice. Everyone in the room turned to see her small frame standing at the side of the doorway.
Makoto gave another relieved sigh before his breath caught in his throat. His eyes darted over her blood-stained clothing; his expression slightly panicked.
"I'm alright," she said sheepishly. "A little worse for wear, but I'll live."
Makoto turned to Gai and gave the shinobi a stern stare.
Gai watched his partner, "We ran into some trouble on the way over here."
"Sergeant, see to her wounds," said Makoto as he waved a hand in Hani's direction. He turned back to the jounin, "Who?"
Gai watched as one of the guards took Hani's arm and led her to a bench. "Many foes ... but most recently, Nishin and his goon.

A small black figure lay on the ground. It was practically mutilated as shiny metallic parts glinted around it. Dark arrows were buried deep into the figures body almost covering it. Suddenly a figure walked by, stood for a moment then kneeled down before the little black form. It sat there and tinkered for about an hour or so, grabbing pieces here and there trying to place them back as if working on a puzzle.
Suddenly a beeping sounded and the dark haired girl who had been working on the figure jumped back, slightly startled. The arrows that remained in the now moving chest began to dissolve into the black furred body. The girl quickly escaped by turning into her reptilian form, as her previous battle with him wouldnt be so pleasant to repeat. The red eyes snapped open and immediately the mouth curled down and fangs emerged.
An angry snarl escaped the simians lips. FOOL! He bellowed with a roar. Razor got up and staggered a little

The First Tale: Art is simple It's only three letters.
Much like Tajina was a writer, her character Taij, was an artist. This was strange, considering he'd been a character not too long ago. She couldn't remember writing about him as an artist; only as a thief. Of course, Taij didn't seem to remember any of that, though. No, he seemed to be quite insistent that he was not a character.
"It was real " He would insist silently. Only, he wouldn't voice his opinions aloud most times.
No, he would have rather drawn them up. The first time Tajina saw him drawing, it was in the living room. Strange as it might be, she lived in a place of her own. It would have been even stranger to say that she'd been living alone since she was thirteen.
She didn't confide in people much, which was the reason people just thought she was a lonesome teenage girl wandering the streets most of the time. She preferred it that wayshe didn't need anyone looking out for her like she was a kid.

The little boy prayed that perhaps one day,
his mommy and daddy would stay and play.
Mom's always caught up in some messy fray,
dad is never home to play anyway.
He prayed this way...
"Dear Father in heaven I love you so,
hear these words from Tommy down here below.
I promise to be good, and this I know,
your love is like a river, it ever flows."
He went to bed and dreamt the night away,
playful dreams and happy thoughts did hold sway.
When he rose he hoped today would be the day,
that mommy and daddy with him would stay.
But as he looked around, he knew they'd gone,
off to live their lives leaving him alone.
The nanny made him toast, gave the dog a bone,
nothing really changes here in this home.
But as he slept that night, a voice so calm,
said: "Listen to me son, my little Tom.
Your prayer to me was like a pleasant Psalm,
your words to me felt like a soothing balm."
The very next day as he awoke from sleep,
his mom and dad were there, it made him weep.

Andre and Alice stood at the ready while Rumia was charging up her attack. She then launched it at them, but the thing that surprised Andre was the fact that the energy orb exploded into tens of smaller orbs.
"What the hey?!!" Andre said as he barely dodged the first wave. He looked towards Alice, who seemed to be dodging them effortlessly.
"I thought you guys used spell cards!" Andre exclaimed.
Alice then blocks a volley of energy attacks with her own, launched by her dolls.
"I should've specified better! Besides the use of spell cards, the weaker attacks used in battle are in the form of Danmaku!"
Rumia used this chance to release another burst of dark energy, this time, it exploded into about 100 energy bursts.

"I'm sorry, Sir. I should have gone after her when she left the room," sighed the sergeant.
Makoto clasped the guilt-trodden man on the shoulder, "It's not your fault. There was no way for us to know she would leave." He looked to Gai who had been silent since they discovered she was gone. He watched the man tuck Hani's bronze-bladed fans into his belt. "Gai, say something."
The jounin adjusted his shirt and vest. "I can't believe she left," he said through gritted teeth. "If only that woman would listen to me for just once."
Makoto tightened his grip on the young guard's shoulder, "Women are innately difficult, Gai. It's their very nature. But don't think she did this just to spite you."
Gai maintained his stare on the floor, "And what do you think those reasons were?"
"Did I also mention that women are bat-shit crazy?" huffed Makoto. "Especially when they're menstrual!"

Gai smoothed back a piece of hair that had continually mutinied against him since adding the gel earlier that morning. "It's not what it looks like," he sighed.
Oda clicked his tongue, "Well that is a shame. I know there are quite a few things I would sacrifice for such an evening with that woman."
Gai lifted his brows in surprise -- he had always thought Oda to be ... foppish. "That woman, is vile, Oda. You would be better off sleeping with a black widow in your bed."

It was morning and the sun had yet to grace the village of Konoha with its warming rays. While most citizens were still sleeping dreamily in their beds, there was one who had awoken with a jump. Every morning was the same; he would rouse at 4:30AM into full awareness teeming with energy. Before his clock reached 4:31AM, he was on his feet, beginning his morning exercises of 200 squats, 300 push-ups, 600 sit-ups and 100 pull-ups; and this was only the warm-up. An hour later, he began his routine of preparing for the day. He showered, dressed and just as he was grooming himself, he heard a firm knock on his front door.
A large, black eyebrow rose in question, "Who could that be, at this time of day?" He stole one last look in the mirror before going to the door and opening it. There he was greeted by a familiar face.
"Shizune! What a pleasant surprised! I did not know you to be a morning person."
