At noon, shadows didn’t exist. They never did, and they never will.
Forao was no exception.
Link was bathed with sunlight, just like the rest of the small Faraoan canyon he found himself standing in. There were several small indents in the sun-beaten, red desert rock that the canyon was composed of, and the only shade was found under these, but, despite being somewhat short, Link couldn’t even fit under those. He let the sun beat down on him, and he found himself squinting his eyes every time he looked up.
There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and Link felt as though he would have appreciated the glorious phenomenon of nature known as a nice, warm day more if he weren’t in the middle of a desert.
The canyon was small and somewhat cramped, but relatively deep for its length and width, falling down to fifty feet below the flat desert surface above. It was an odd break in the ground, as there was no water for miles. Link assumed that it had been created by a powerful earthquake years ago.
However, what interested Link the most was the portal that stood before him. He had been forced into an identical one in Hyrule, and then he fell out of this one an instant later. This was several hours ago, and while he was prepared to fight as soon as he appeared in this new land, he found that those who had taken him from his home were far from evil.
The Sages, led by the Great Sage Aroen, lived in the world Link found himself in called Forao. They were forced into hiding by an evil magician named Cateraun, and that very same magician threatened to destroy Forao, Hyrule, and all of the other worlds in the universe. Until a few hours previous, Link had not known that any worlds besides Hyrule existed, but now he was ready to fight for them and the good of humanity and life everywhere.
The only problem was that he had no idea where to begin. The Sages had not offered to help him or the other heroes in their quest, meaning they were alone in a new world. It was going to be more difficult than any trial Link had faced before.
Several other tired and disgruntled heroes from various worlds loitered around the canyon. The Sages had answered all the questions that had been asked, and now the awkwardness of delayed first introductions was due to begin.
Strangely enough, Link felt as though he had recognized some of the heroes—namely Marth, Sora, Sly Cooper, and Mario. He approached an area where several of the heroes had congregated and introduced himself. “Hey,” he said, “I know the Sages told you already, but my name’s Link. What world are you from?” The question was not directed at anyone in particular, but was rather used to begin a conversation of some sort. Anything to get this mission off the ground, he figured.
This was kind of rushed... sorry if it sucks
