That night, Zelda slept soundly and deeply. In her dreams, she flew out from the ring of fire, above the clouds and beyond the ocean, across the known world. Everywhere below her the land shone, people rejoiced in their lives and their loves, and the richest bounties of food overflowed the lands.
Her heart swelled to see it.
And deep within, a quiet voice turned its eye outward in every direction, and couldn't help noticing that she flew alone.
