----Chapter 20: A Knight's Ride to Kakariko
A shrill howl ebbed from Link’s ears as he blinked past the whiteness that had overthrown the world. The wind stole away the wolf’s greeting, and a body weighed down by ancient and rusting armor balanced itself before Link. Once again mentor and protégée had come together in the surreal existence that Link had not yet been able to understand.
“We meet again,” the red-eyed warrior said.
Link stood silent. He still had so many questions to ask of this great soldier, but with the silent dismissal during their last meeting, he was afraid to speak out of turn.
“It appears your efforts have begun to return some vigor to Hyrule,” the shade spoke. It began to circle Link, as if sizing up how much he had grown since their last encounter, “but it is far too early to relax.”
Link felt a stab of guilt and embarrassment at this harmless comment. Had the anci

“I raise you fifty.” You declared lowly, dropping the bills on the table and bringing your gaze up to your opponent.
“…I…Ms. (surname) I already owe you enough don’t I?” He gulped.
“Well you should have thought about that before gambling away your life savings Mr. Johnson.” A smile graced your ruby red lips as you laid down your cards, another winning hand, “I expect you pay off that debt by the end of the month. If you don’t…well…I’m sure we can come to an agreement.”
The man shakily rose and left the back room of the bar, you grabbed the wad of cash from the center of the table and counted your earnings, yes this would be enough for rent, groceries, to pay your guard, and perhaps some left over for a treat. This was your life; you were a “Shark”, a debt collector. You lent out cash to gambling addicts, watched them lose it

“I meant how you learned to kill so effortlessly” Booker said out of context, interrupting your thoughts, “What?” you asked, looking at him for an explanation. “I never finished explaining from before- since we got attacked” Booker clarified.
“Oh yeah… that” you began, not very enthusiastic about the topic. “Well, I kinda had to learn to fend for myself under certain… circumstances and then got” you waved you hand aimlessly “into this thing, and I used my good looks to finish a job, a guy would have taken a week to do, in two days” you finished giving a forced smile.

And after seeing all the charts and graphs around the rooms, you were sure she was some sort of experiment. And she was being watched, which was what disturbed you most of all. There was video and pictures of her, which seemed very perverted.Booker DeWitt x Reader pt52 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
“They’ve been watching her” Booker said with said with a hint of anger as he saw the room where they developed the photographs.
After passing through various rooms that looked like they were something out of a nightmare, you reached an elevator that was very elegant looking. Booker slammed the elevator button making the door close with a ding. “You know, you don’t have to break it for the doors to close” you said, crossing your arms and leaning against the wall. “Well you don’t need to lean on that wall” Booker muttered.

“So (name) what do you think is involved in these ‘after hour’ activities?” Booker asks through the door as you freshen up in the washroom. You puff some powder on your cheeks before replying.
“I’m not sure, probably some burlesque shows, gambling, drinking, and all those naughty things you hide from the sun.” You chuckle and adjust your corset, making sure it was comfortable enough to move in, but still retain a shape. You pull up a pair of black stockings and strap a garter around your (non-dominant) thigh, and then you slide the layered holsters for your knives over the strap. You reach for your knives, only to realize you forgot them out in the main room. You huff agitatedly and finish dressing yourself in a fine (color) gown.
You step out of the wash room and scurry over to the set of knives on the table, quickly picking them up and carefully placing them in their respective sheaths.

The trip up to Columbia is taking much longer than you expect. The Airship moves at a snail's pace, but luckily there are a few things to busy yourself with. You open up one of your bags and pull out a small journal and pencil. You take a seat next to one of the windows and begin to write down the events of yesterday. You always had a thing about documentation. Keeping track of events for reference, in case you should need them for whatever reason. You describe the 'dream' you had, your meetings with the Lutece twins and how they seem to be following you, and Booker. You nearly took up the entire page describing him, you then read back over the page.
"He definitely is a strange fellow." You close the journal and look over at him while he idly talks to a few other citizens. Booker catches your gaze and cracks a smile.
"This is a life I think I can get used to..." He says as he approaches you and sits, "It's a lot better than the othe-Ah shit..
Lighten Up Mr.DeWitt!It was your favorite past time, dancing. You always had a gift for the art of shuffling around the floor to the music. Most nights down here in Rapture you would twirl across the vinyl floor and dance with anyone whom wanted to. You didn't care if they were a professional or a novice, just dancing brought you so much joy that was contagious to your partners as well. They would often laugh and smile as you stepped to the beat and Lindy-Hopped around.Lighten Up Mr.DeWitt!1 year ago in Romance More Like This
You were well known for your skills and had acquired a small fame around the Kashmir. People would come to watch you dance around with the patrons or even offer to dance with you for the next song.
But this night was different, as you spun around in place as the song ended, you noticed a man slumped over at the bar with whiskey in his hand. You didn't like seeing people so downtrodden in such a marvelous place like this, so you brushed down your skirt and trotted over to the sorry looking man at the counter.

Fear drives you to move, as if stopping was no longer an option. Disembodied murmurs are nearly drowned out by the white noise in your mind.

“Drown love, drown.” His voice urges you on and you shuffle faster.
You look back at the bloody trail you’ve left, cards and cash flutter in the wind. Hands begin to grab at your dress, then at your skin. They push you through the darkness towards a figure. The figure extends its arms out to you and you reach out to grab it.
Once in its grasp, the figure pulls you into an embrace, and for a moment you feel fine. The scent of musky cologne and alcohol almost comforts you. You look up into a set of amber eyes and your heart sinks. Sud

----Chapter 11: Sanctuary
That was what the wooden sign said anyway. To Link the village, built within a narrow valley in the mountains, looked more like a ghost town abandoned long ago and rather quickly. The tall buildings, though once surely magnificent in their days of glory, were now run down shacks. Cracks formed along every corner of the outside frameworks, which indicated that the insides would be much worse. Windows were broken, shattered completely, or barred. Most doors were pulled tight and locked; others were broken at the hinges. A few shutters had survived the mysterious onslaught against the town, most hanging loosely by one latch. Some houses had lost sections of brick, the blocks hanging halfway out of their respective places; others lie smashed on the ground beneath.
The entire appearance of the village renewed his doubts of finding the children. He had followed their scent eagerly to this very

You looked over at the man who had bumped into you. He was taller than you, maybe 6’ 1”. He had dark brown hair with a hint of gray on the sides, so you assumed he was a couple of years older than you and you couldn’t help but notice his stunning green eyes. But you realized you were staring.
“No it’s fine” you quickly said and threw in a polite smile. He nodded in return and you went back to looker for… what did those two tell you he was? False Shepard? You were pretty sure that what they had said.

Your eyes slowly flutter open as sunlight filters into the room. A yawn escapes your lips and you inhale the scent that you have grown to love. You shuffle slightly and tighten your arms around Booker, humming pleasantly to yourself. A hand slides its way through your hair and you smile.
"Morning." You coo and untwine your legs from his. The ex-investigator opens his mouth to speak, but is cut off.
"Well I hope you're happy." Rosalind snaps at the both of you from a chair across the room.
"Oh I know I am." Robert chuckles as he enters with two cups of tea, one of which he hands to his sister.

“What the hell…” He grunts painfully and sits up, rubbing the back of his head.
Your eyes widen and you step back, was that portal real? Did you really just take some man from an alternate dimension and drag him into your apartment? It makes your head spin just trying to comprehend it all.

The sound of footsteps scuffling out in the main room had you stirring to wake. A muffled conversation buzzes in your ears as you tiredly grab at the cartilage, hoping to stop the noise. You groan and lift your arms, feeling a sudden tightness in one as gauze fell to the blankets. Right, you were injured last night. You lightly scratch at the shallow wound and sigh.
A heavy weight rests on your shoulders and you slump forward. You swipe a hand across your eyes and sigh again, feeling the dried tracks of tears against your cheeks.
"He's here too..." You think, "Just when I thought I was safe."
With aching legs you swing yourself to the edge of the mattress and groan again. You instantly slump over and huff. Getting up this morning feels harder than it should.
Someone knocks at your door.
You attempt to answer but can only vocalize a soft grumble.

Elizabeth commented on how the character and the idea’s they suggested seemed more wicked as she saw the children watching the show and how they acted. “If we shot them no one would really care” Booker murmured, annoyance evident on his beautiful face.

He had told you to stay put. He made sure he had just enough time to stumble you up so he could escape. While he tried to maintain his stoic facade, his clear green eyes had reflected a fear like none other. What was he so afraid of? He obviously was trying to keep you from Travis.
But here you are. Bound and blind.
You've grown sick of this feeling. The lack of control. The uncertainty. It drives you madder than the busiest hatter.

Link had resolved to return to Ordon Village before setting out on his adventure. Firstly, it would be necessary to acquire the lantern that had once been gifted to him, for he did not know into what corners of darkness his journey would propel him. Secondly, he wanted to see the village with his own eyes. He needed to see the destruction he had caused within Uli’s home. And though, he would spare her the truth, he felt obligated to reassure her.
Along the path back into the village, the only audible noise came from the soles of his new boots, boots once worn by some other hero of some other time. The feeling of feet pressing against the inside of the leather material conjured deep emotions within him. Pride and fear. He realized his fright came from the doubt he could fill these boots, afraid that, though he was proud to have been bestowed such an honor, he would not be able to live up to such a name.
