NIGHT 4 ENDS.
The group looks up to see not one, but three
ginormous lynels approaching.
"Take the princess," orders the front-most one, a brown lynel with glowing, orange eyes. "Kill the others."
The other two, a purple lynel and a blue one - though darker than the usual blues - nod to their leader.
"I bet they're the ones that took Princess Lenk," Zilda says, preparing her shield while the Lenks get their weapons ready. "Stay on your guard. Lynels are tough to begin with, and they don't usually travel in packs."
To their surprise, the stable owner and her workers also grab weapons (well, a mop, a pitchfork, and a couple torches, but, it's the thought that counts).
"You can't threaten my customers!" the stable owner calls out, pointing her pitchfork at the brown one.
"Do you truly think you can stop me with that toothpick?" the lynel asks, laughing and deep, evil sounding laugh.
"This isn't a toothpick! It's the Master Pitchfork!" The stable owner rushes forward, attacking the brown lynel as the Lenks gang up on the blue lynel, who has also readied his weapon.
Meanwhile, Zilda studies the purple one. She hadn't noticed it before, but there's a bag on its back - and the bag seems to be moving. Someone, or something, is inside it.
Shield in one hand and fire rod in the other, Zilda runs toward the purple lynel, set the grass around her on fire as she goes, intent on getting that bag and freeing whatever is inside.
She swings the fire rod as the lynel aims for her, his sword slicing clean through the rod
, and sending the half she isn't holding flying, but, at least, it missed her. And she managed to grab the bag from the lynel in the scuffle, so she retreats, letting the more experienced fighters (and the Lenks) take over the battle.
Ruvio's ghost meets her as she reaches the stable entrance.
"What's that?" he asks, gesturing to the bag. "It looks like my mask bag."
"I'm not sure, but it's moving," Zilda answers as she sets the bag down gently and unties it.
Out pops a head of red hair, attached to a young woman in a giant, purple dress.
"Zilda, it's you," the person says, clutching at her side, where she appears to be bleeding. "You found me."
"Princess Lenk!" Zilda gasps. "What happened?"
"It stabbed me," Princess Lenk answers, coloring fading from her face. "I don't think I'm gonna make it, Zilda."
"No! We came all this way to rescue you! You have to pull through! We'll find a way to heal you! Ruvio, what can your masks do?"
"I don't think there's one that heals people, Princess," Ruvio answers sadly. "Maybe Green's ocarina can do something?"
"There's no time," Princess Lenk whispers. "Thanks for trying to save me, Zilda. Take my ice rod. I won't need it anymore."
She pushes her ice rod into Zilda's hands before the last of her life leaves her.
Princess Lenk (Abs. [Kid-Amuro]) has died.
DAY 4 BEGINS.
Abs. (Kid-Amuro) was killed.
An officer was suspended.
