Traveling at night brought out the beauty of the woods, a beauty many didn’t quite appreciate. Most tended to avoid the Lost Woods, whether because of its name or reputation. Indeed, one could find themselves lost, but if one knew where to go and what to look for, they would find their way out. Or, in this case, deeper in.
All Nyssa’s years of atonement had led her to finding the guild ran by her former charge.
Fireflies danced about, the only source of illumination for the Sheikah as she came to the entrance of the Hylian Ruins. Dark didn’t bother her, though, as shadow was her greatest ally. And, to her joy, the rumor she had caught on to was true. Sheikah guards stood posted, and she saw camps and tents set up. There really was a guild here. It could only mean one thing.
There was enough movement for the guards to turn heads, but Nyssa knew her shadow magic would work. Silently, she entered the camp, moving from cover to cover, taking in all she could. The Heroes of Hyrule, they called themselves. Shields, swords, spears. All were put against walls, or tucked under hammocks and lying in open tents. It truly was a home for those who believed in Hyrule.
But the rebuilt parts of the ruins caught her eye, and she felt almost drawn to it. Her breath hitched, and she looked towards it. She had to be there. More silent movement, and she was before it, pushing the door open silently to one of the rooms. Nostalgia hit her, and even if she wouldn’t have recognized the clothing Zelda favored, the feeling of light she felt was comforting.
But Zelda was not here. It wasn’t an issue, though. Nyssa knew what to do.
Minutes later, she was out of the camp, her goal complete. She sat upon a stump of a tree, one that had broken off in such a way that it had a back like a chair. She quietly polished her spear, keeping an eye out. Zelda knew what the coin would mean if it was left on her pillow, and the girl knew where to look. She would find the trail of trinkets leading to Nyssa. The Sheikah’s whole form hummed with anticipation, but she didn’t show it outward.

It was a long day, and the former queen had spent it on a supply run. She had gathered some of her men to go to a nearby village which she had gained support from, and brought in some food and mead for her people to celebrate another village gained by their cause. These days, it was hard for her to get out of bed. But her family had been pushing her to get back out there. "If they see that their queen is alive, they will be more likely to agree to help," they would say. And so far, it had proven to be useful. It still felt hard for her though - the claustrophobia of being surrounded by people who wanted nothing more than to hear of what she's been doing, and there wasn't much to say. She spent all of her time watching a sword that won't move from its pedestal. [break][break] So she took the rest of the day to relax. She and her siblings had gone to have a small picnic by themselves while they let the rest of the guild enjoy the food they brought back. There were still so many people she had to find though - so many she hoped were alive. Their numbers were small, and many of her friends were still missing. So when the sun began to set and they had wrapped up their family day, they headed back to the base and went separate ways to their quarters. Only when Zelda had gotten back, something seemed off. [break][break] She couldn't put her finger on it, but the aura had changed, as though someone had been through her things, even though everything seemed to still be untouched since she had left. She looked around carefully, when something shining in the light caught her eye. A coin - but not just any. It was a sheikah coin. Her eyes widened immediately as she picked it up, looking over it carefully. Were there any Sheikah left who swore allegiance? She had assumed they had all scattered once the Triforce had broken. [break][break] She looked around the room again, and then pulled on the shutters of her window to look out at the guild carefully. No one seemed to be on guard, or suspicious of any activity. They also probably wouldn't be alerted if she were to sneak out. Grabbing her cloak quickly, she put it over her head, and rushed out of her room immediately. There would likely be a trail of these, so that she'd be able to find the suspect quickly. Whoever it was, they wanted her alive, so she held trust, bought brought her weapon just in case. She followed the trail into the deeper woods, a lantern in hand, and the other rested on the hilt of her sword.
The light of the lantern was what alerted her to Zelda's presence, and not her footfalls. Good, she remembered how to move silently in shadow. She remembered her lessons well. Still, the Shiekah said nothing until the princess' eyes laid on her, eyes shut as she focused on the spear balanced on her lap. She was perfectly still until Zelda joined her in the secluded glade. Green eyes opened, but she didn't look to her Queen. Not yet.
"Zelda. It has been long since I last saw you. I take it you are well?"
She finally met the gaze of her Queen, eyes glinting in the light of Zelda's lantern. Her spear was set on the ground, and she stood, slowly approaching the other woman. Her hand rested on Zelda's shoulder, then gestured for the girl to sit where she just had been.
"I am glad to see you well, my Queen. I had heard rumors of your survival, and it seems my optimism at them has paid off. I... My people have fragmented, and many have... Dissented, but I remember my solemn duty to you and your family. You are no longer the child I once taught, and you have lost much. But I..."
She paused, fist clenching, but she didn't turn back. Instead she crossed her arms, and stared off into the distance.
"Child or not, I will stay by your side to do whatever it is you will. I will uphold the sacred duty of my people on my own."

It truly was surreal to see the woman who raised her in front of her again. She was sure that the worst had happened as they were removed from the castle - many of the Sheikah had been killed by Eleazar's men upon arrival, and as far as she knew, Nyssa was nowhere to be found. It wasn't as though it would have been easy for them to reunite either way though - the entire town was in chaos as Rogue Order had stormed the gates and took out each area of the castle one by one. [break][break] Still, she felt a bit of guilt for not trying to look harder. Despite her hopes that Nyssa had been alive, she was ordered to stay put, to stay hidden, and not to risk herself by revealing herself to the public. And even then, she could barely help herself to move forward in her mission. The grief of losing her lover had consumed her, and to this day, it continued to haunt her. [break][break] "How did you find me?" Zelda finally asked. Despite her initial relief of Nyssa's survival, she had to know how she was able to track her. "I tried as best as I could to keep my family's location safe. What did you do to find out where we were?" She had to be cautious about this. Even if she believed Nyssa's fealty, the option for Sheikah to rebel and join a darker cause was still incredibly possible. [break][break] She looked down when her attendant had sworn loyalty once more, sighing as she closed her eyes. If this was a trick, she would be risking her entire family's safety. However, she wanted to believe that the woman who raised her when her mother had passed wouldn't try something so sinister. Pursing her lips, she closed her eyes and nodded. "Come with me. I have to show you something."
Zelda questioned how she had found them, and Nyssa paused before answering. She was being cautious, doubting. Not without reason, but it still stung.
"Your brother, my Queen. He and I met along Lake Hylia, whether by chance or destiny, I do not know. But he confirmed that you were alive, and gave me your location here. Nobody else in the camp knows I'm alive, I figured they have reason to distrust Sheikah as of now."
Zelda's acceptance of her fealty coaxed a soft smile from her, despite the hesitation, and she fell into stride behind her Queen as they walked wherever Zelda was leading her. So many questions danced on her tongue, but she knew there was one thing Zelda had to know.
"My Queen- No, Zelda. I... I have seen a world without you, and it is not for the better. Before we go any further, I want you to consider these words. If I am here, it is not just because I am here to serve you. I serve Hyrule, and Hyrule is dying. The traitor Sheikah need to be stopped, and we need your family where they belong. Triforce or not, your Wisdom is fabaled, Zelda. I trust you have made the right choice in what you wish for the future of your homeland and people."
Once again, a gantle hand rested on Zelda's shoulder.
"You have been through much, with the loss of Link and your home. I can imagine it wasn't easy, and still isn't. But you mustn't forget you are a Queen above all, just as I was not able to forget my role as a Sage. I have seen your lineage make many mistakes, and I hope I taught you well enough to not make the mistakes they did."
