The Hero's journey had been a long and exhausting, with no end in sight. The stress of almost losing one of his dearest friends still fresh in his mind, he had set off from the camp for some time alone to clear his clouded and fatigued mind. Armed with only a hunting knife, the Hero set out for the one location he knew he would be able to obtain true peace and quiet; the Water Temple.
After many hours of traveling, the Hero reached his destination, only to have his breath nearly stolen at the sight of what was once the proud and imposing Water Temple, now aged and broken down due to nothing more than the passing of centuries upon centuries.
"The ravages of time were not kind to you, were they..."
The Hero sighed, tracing a finger along the moist stone walls of the ruined and decayed temple as he entered. Many of the offshooting corridors had caved in, and the once rushing natural lake in the heart of the temple was naught more than a small spring now, clear water somehow still flowing from the ancient stone monoliths.
The Hero felt a gentle melancholy in his heart as he lightly made his way to the spring before kneeling at the water's edge, bowing his head in tired reverence.
"I know it's been what, a century now? Hell, it's been an age...but if you're still there, please, come to me. I...I miss you,"
the Hero prayed softly, hoping in his heart that the Goddess of Water and Wisdom would accept his plea for communion.
Moments passed, with naught but the dripping of water into the spring echoing throughout the temple, and the Hero's soul grew weary.
"I suppose any old comforts are simply too much to wish for..."
With a sigh of resignation, the Hero hoisted himself back to his feet and turned to exit the cave before feeling a cold splash of water on his hand.
His expression shifting to one of surprise, the Hero whipped back around, his lips curling into a smile at the sight that met his gaze and the gentle, silky smooth voice that emanated from it.
"You called for me, my precious fairy boy?"
