Dawn [Young!Link x Young!Reader]
The beginning of a new day was a welcoming feeling. New possibilities opened. New adventures awaited, and new explorations were in store.
Alas, at this moment, it was the closure of another chapter, the end of a significant part of your life.
This morning meant the departure of your dearest friend.
Waking this morning left you empty. Not the cheery song of nearby birds or the warm, golden rays of the sun encircling your bed could bring a smile to your face. An unidentifiable fear struck you; racing heart, blood running cold, mind spinning.
All you could think about was one thing.
I don’t want him to go.
Jumping from your bed, you rushed from your home through Kokiri Forest. The canopy of trees cast a golden shadow over the haven. Silence still enveloped the land as everyone still remained nestled in their beds, still waiting for the full greeting of the morning.
But, not him.
You knew he would soon depart for the open lands of Hyrule for a journey he refused to speak of.
