As the sound of shouting drifted to her ears, her groggy mind became vaguely aware that something was wrong. She knew she should be concerned, but her mind had yet to fully wake and all she could do was lay there listening. It wasn't till she heard a dull pounding, which seemed to be drawing closer, that she reached over to shake her fiancÚ. He should be laying next to her, but for some reason her hands could not find him. Even as her arms reached out and felt for him, she was aware that the bed felt much harder than usual.
"Jimmy? Jimmy where are you?" she called softly not feeling him beside her.
A frigid breeze hit her legs, making her shiver and reach for the sheets, but they were no longer there. It wasn't till the sound of clashing metal, being struck repeatedly, reached her ears, that she was startled up to look around.
At first she could see nothing but darkness all around her, but soon a silvery light shown down upon her surroundings. What she saw before her was not her bed room. A deep starlit sky was looking back at her from where she sat and Jimmy was nowhere to be seen. The breeze, she had thought was being created by her stand up fan, was actually the wind and her bed had been replaced with a flat rock in the middle of a sea of sand.
"Ok this just has to be a dream. I just need to give myself a good pinch." She whispered to herself, but pinching had no effect.
The shouting and metal clanging just kept getting louder, and to her, it sounded as if a full on battle was being waged just over the huge sand dune to her left. Sounds of horse hooves could now be distinguished from the dull thudding and a thought had just occurred to her. What if her fiancÚ was just over that ridge? Was he in the middle of the battle? She just had to risk a look. It would do her no good just to sit there.
"Ok Melissa you just need to look over that hill. No one will even know you were there." She said to herself.
Working her courage up, she started towards the noise. As she walked, the sand gave under her feet causing her to almost fall a couple of times, but eventually, she managed to near the edge of the dune. Lowering herself to a crouch, she peaked over the edge trying not to be seen by whoever was down there.
Two armies, that looked as if they had come right out of a fantasy movie, were facing off. The army closest to her was dressed in a heavy armor and chain mail. They looked to be composed of mostly men. The other army was so drastically different. All of them were women dressed in what looked to be a sort of Arabian harem outfit. Their blood red hair flowed as they slashed ferociously at the armored men. She skimmed the crowd for her fiancÚ and was relieved not to see him mixed in there anywhere.
At first as she watched, she thought the lack of armor on the group of female warriors would leave them at a disadvantage, but the more she studied the event below the more she could see that the armor was actually weighing the men down into the sand making it harder for them to move. The women were so fast and agile. For every blow the men would strike, the women were able to counter with three.
A flash of light struck in the middle of a group of the armored men which sent them flying. A gleeful cackling came from above. She looked up in amazement just in time to see two little old women flying away on brooms, just avoiding the volley of arrows being sent there way. Another half of the armored troop, surrounded a man who must have been their leader. He sat on top of a white mare covered in a golden armor.
Melissa let her gaze follow the impossible flying brooms and she noticed that the clouds had moved in once more. Lightning flashed from them in the distance, allowing her to see the brooms coming to a stop finally after crossing a good distance.
Even at that distance she could see Him when the lightning would flash. A man on a dark armored horse, his cape whipping out behind him in the wind, flanked by more of the female warriors on horseback. The dark figure of the man pointed towards the other forces. It was all the signal his troops needed. They raced their horses forward, striking at any enemies that crossed their path, in their rush toward the opposing leader.
In all the chaos, she failed to notice the shadows that moved silently over her, but a sudden raspy shriek above, drew her attention back to her immediate suroundings. All she could do was look up in terror, as the two old ladies hovered above her. They shouted at her, but she didn't recognize the language at all.
"Uh hi." Melissa tried. "I'm sorry but can't understand a word your saying. You wouldn't happen to speak English would you?"
The two old crones just stared at her for a moment then began to talk amongst themselves. They sounded as if they were bickering about something. Melissa couldn't understand them, but at least they weren't trying to kill her. One shouted at the closest group of horseback women and by the time she realized what was going on, it was a little too late to run. She almost felt silly about doing so, but as she watched the horse galloping towards her she panicked and made a mad dash away.
She knew she wouldn't actually be able to out run a horse and eventually felt a sharp tug at the back of her night shirt. Her captor was definitely stronger than she looked and lifted Melissa into the air effortlessly. Once upon the horse, Melissa dared not struggle for fear of falling off in the middle of the battle they were riding through. She didn't even dare speak till they crested over another dune leaving the fight behind.
"Where are you taking me?" she asked panicked after riding what seemed a few good miles, but she was only met with quiet. "Could you at least tell me where I am and how I got here?" But again she was greeted with silence. "What are you going to do with m-"
Finally the woman cut her off in the same strange language, and though she couldn't understand what was being said, something about her tone made Melissa think it was best not to ask any more questions.
After a few more miles, they arrived at a huge stone building. A woman with her palms stretched out had been carved out of the rock face of the building. Melissa stared in awe of it's beauty till, without warning, her captor threw her from the horse, causing her to land face first in the sand.
With a thud beside her, the woman dismounted, pulling her roughly to her feet and began to drag her into the entrance. As they traveled through the maze-like hallways Melissa found herself feeling that if she were left alone, she would be lost. No escape now, was all she could think to herself.
Finally, after she was thoroughly lost, they stopped and Melissa's captor flung her into the room before them. Melissa turned to protest, but the door had already slammed shut and the sound of a lock clicking could be heard. Now she was alone to ponder just what was going on here.
This is chapter 1 of my LOZ GanonXOC fan fic. This is the first fan fiction I have ever wrote. I plan to post a chapter a week. If you are viewing this via a group there might be new chapters I have posted on my profile. It just takes a while for it to be added to certain groups because it has to be approved. I hope everyone enjoys reading this. I love to hear what people think. I don't mind constructive criticism... I know there is probably a lot of mistakes due to my constant re-editing. Just be kind and remember I'm human. =_=;

Wow. Really good. Can't wait to read more.

I take it that the smiley means you like?
I hated to write anything before this. This story idea just came to me last year, so I haven't been writing all that long. I did do a lot of day dreaming though, which I know has helped on the story. XD I am actually embarrassed my BF has been reading this. lol Surprisingly he doesn't think me weird or get jealous over my Ganon fascination. hehehehe! ^_^
Wow, that's a great start!
My sister helped me proof read the first two chapters, so there are a lot of mistakes to come. LOLZ She is supposed to proof read more, but is always busy with college.
I finally read the first chapter! Yay!
Cool! I likes!
