Sapphire eyes widened as he realized what his friend had just done. Thousands of shimmering pieces of glass littered the ground. Link glanced up at the area where the Twili princess had been standing just seconds ago. Nothing. Midna had returned to her kingdom, never to return to the realm of light again. The twilight hero darted forward, insanity flickering in his expression."MIDNA" he screamed. Suddenly, Link collapsed onto the ground, struggling to conceal the choked sobs trying to escape his mouth. "Midna..." he whispered, a single tear slipping down his cheek.
He tried to piece the mirror's shards together, the sharp edges piercing through his exposed skin. Crimson rivers seemed to flow from the gashes,yet Link didn't show any signs of physical pain. He glanced up with tear filled eyes. "Why?" Link called into the desert. "Why!?"
Link was kneeled on the ground.
Picking up--no, collecting shards from the shattered mirror.
With already bloodied hands...
Just a few days later, he returned to the village of Ordon. At long last, a smile could be seen upon the hero's face, his fingers intertwined with a Twili hand extending from the glass slivers that rested in his palm. It was a glorious sight; Kindred spirits, forever separated, yet at the same time forever intertwined.
