Chapter 2: The Brave Little Heroine
In Romani Ranch, Link and Misaki, continuing their lives as an adopted brother and an adopted sister, continued to work in Romani Ranch for a while, along with Cremia and Romani, their sisters. Cremia, glad that she had a new sister in the family, send Link and Misaki, to buy supplies from Clock Town. In Clock Town, Link and Misaki bought half of the supplies, until Link looked at the Stock Pot Inn, the only inn that Clock Town has. This gives Link an idea that, maybe, he and Misaki can visit.
“Big Brother, what are you looking at?” asked Misaki, which interrupted his thought.
“Misaki, this place is actually The Stock Pot Inn, a place where some people reserve their homes for some time. Maybe we can visit there for at least a few minutes,” Link replied back to his 9-year-old sister.
“Really? Misaki would love to visit people along with Big Brother!” Misaki happily said and Link grabbed her hand and they entered the Stock Pot Inn, where Link meets Anju, a friend that he had helped before.
“Good morning, Link. Is she your friend?” Anju said as she welcomed the young hero and his sister.
“The name is Misaki. Misaki is Big Brother’s sister,” Misaki introduced and Anju smiled at Link.
“Congratulations for you, Link. You are going to be the best brother she’ll ever have,” Anju said, until Kafei, having to have returned to his normal form after Termina’s near-end, came to Anju and they both hugged.
“It’s alright, Misaki. They love each other,” Link said and Misaki nodded with a smile.
“Welcome, Link,” Kafei welcomed and he and Anju gave Link and Misaki 2 bouquets of flowers. One of them was a bouquet of pink roses and the other one was a bouquet of purple tulips. Link grabbed the tulip bouquet and Misaki grabbed the rose bouquet.
“What are these for?” Link asked.
“Well, since you and Misaki are spending your lives in Romani Ranch, these are for the garden in the ranch,” Anju replied and Kafei smiled at his wife.
“Tell them these flowers are actually gifts. Come back soon, alright,” Kafei said as Link and Misaki left the inn with the supplies and the flowers.
When Link and Misaki gave the flowers to Cremia, she was amazed and told Link that he needs to come with her for another delivery. Link, worried about Misaki, decides to go with Cremia, but Cremia told her that Romani and Misaki would watch over the ranch while they deliver the milk bottles. Nevertheless, Link decided and they deliver the milk to the Latte, Termina’s milk bar in the East Clock Town, safely without being attacked. After they got back to the ranch, they saw the ranch completely safe. Link saw Misaki with a cow and walked up to her. Misaki hugged Link, since she was glad to see her brother back to the ranch. The cow mooed very happily and Misaki giggled at Link.
“Big Brother, look! Sister showed Misaki these cows while you and Big Sister went to town. They are so cute!” Misaki said.
“Yes, they are,” Link said as he happily hugged his sister in return.
However, as a big thank-you compliment for the flowers and watching over the ranch, Cremia gave them some rupees and send Link and Misaki, along with Romani, to Clock Town for some fun. They went to the Town Shooting Gallery and carefully shot the “red ones”, although they accidentally shot the “blue ones” by mistake. Then they went to Honey and Darling’s shop and Link carefully shot the arrows to the targets while Romani and Misaki cheered for him. Then, after playing a few games, they decided to head back home. However before they were about to head out, suddenly they see a man prancing around, who is actually Sakon, to an old lady and, once again, robbed her again with another bag of bomb bags! Link, knew that it happened before, was surprised when he, Misaki, and Romani saw the scene with their own eyes. Romani send out her bow and had an arrow ready, since she was about shoot the thief, but Link stopped her.
“Romani, DON’T!!” Link yelled out. “The bag will explode if you shoot!” he warned Romani and she put away her bow and arrows. “I’m going in! Wait here with Misaki!” he said and he pulled out his sword and shield while Romani run to the old lady to help her stand up while Misaki just stood there while Link tried to save the bag.
“Big Brother……..let Misaki help you out!” Misaki said and she ran to the thief and when Link saw his little sister, he stopped.
“Misaki, what are you doing?!” Link yelled out to Misaki.
“You big meanie! Let go of that big lady’s bag!” Misaki yelled to the thief.
With a great force, she pushed Sakon to the ground, but 3 bombs fell out of the bag from a bomb bag that was in the bag and Link saw it that it heading straight towards Misaki. In horror, Link dropped his sword and his shield and started to run straight towards his little sister. Romani and the old lady saw it with a surprised look on their faces.
“MISAKI!” Link yelled out as tears came out of his eyes and he grabbed Misaki and they both embraced themselves as the bombs blew up.
- KABOOM! -
“Link! NO!!” Romani screamed, until she saw Link and Misaki on the ground, having to have survived the explosion, and Romani and the old lady sighed in relief.
“It’s alright……Misaki……….we’re………..okay………..” Link said as he passed out. Misaki looked at smiled at her brother for saving her from the explosion as she got up.
“Where……..am I?” Link said as he got up and groaned.
He looked at his arm that had a bandage wrapped around it. He looked around and realized that he was back at the ranch in the house. He looked in the mirror and saw a small bandage on his left cheek. He looked at the mirror and he was wearing pajamas that light blue and white stripes. He heard the bedroom door open and when he saw who was coming in, it was Misaki. Misaki only had a small bandage on her right cheek and she was wearing a light purple nightgown. She smiled at him since he got up.
“Big Brother, are you alright?” Misaki asks and Link nodded in agreement.
Until then, tears came out of Link’s eyes and Misaki, having to have noticed his tears coming out, walks straight towards him and hugs him. Link, trembling with fear a little, hugged his sister back & sighs with relief, since that they are both are safe and sound at the ranch again, however he sobbed a little while he was hugging his sister.
“As long as you don’t do it again, you’ll be okay,” Link said, until he realized something. “But wait a minute, what about the thief?” he panicked as more tears came out from his eyes.
“It’s alright, Big Brother. A really nice guard who was near the exit noticed and they took the meanie away. The big lady and his son thanked us for what you did. It was all thanks to you, Big Brother,” Misaki said with a smile, which actually caused Link to feel better as he wiped the tears from his eyes and they both sat down beside Cremia's bed, on the floor.
“You know, Misaki, you are actually the bravest little sister that I have ever known in my life. I’m glad I have you as a sister,” Link said as he pulled out a random children’s book from a bookshelf and read it to not only to Misaki, but to himself as well for the night.
