"How can you miss unmoving eggs?" cried Tatl incredulously, wings quivering as she chimed shrilly. Link on the other hand, focused his attention on the larvae, stumbling out of their shells and already coming at him and Impa. Whilst he had been lucky and narrowly avoided the newborns' charge, Impa wasn't quite as lucky.

He moved out of the way as the Sheikah quickly dispatched of the larva that went after him, stepping around her to hopefully do the same to the one that hurt her. Queen Gohma might be strong in defense since he had last fought her but he was thankful the larva were still relatively easy to kill.

"Don't forget about the queen. You better distract her before she starts laying some more eggs," advised the fairy, this time flying forward to help Link target the larvae - obviously the boy can't manage a hit without her assistance.

Link attacked the larva twice with his sword then pulled out his hookshot again. Spying the glowing eye on the ceiling, he let the chained weapon loose, hoping to stun and bring her down again for another bout of slashing.

First peahats, then goriyas and wizzrobes and now a boss. There were only missing the mandatory skulltulas and keeses and that could have had a full blown dungeon adventure today.

In the name of everything dark, crawly, and evil, WHY WERE THEY STILL ALIVE AND ATTACKING HER?! Her young ones had fallen, two before they had even hatched, and two before they could get in more than one good hit. This was beyond annoying and frankly was getting rather infuriating. It just seemed that as she had expected, Gohma was going to have to take matters into her own clutches…

… or she would if the boy in green hadn't just hit her with that blasted, pointed, chained, stretching device! Oh Moldarach that hurt! Queen Gohma flinched from the damage… that had smarted, but she was not about to let them just get away with it. Skittering across the ceiling of her lair again, the parasitic armored arachnid suddenly dropped down, swiping furious at the larger Hyrulean as she did so. THAT was for taking out her precious larvae!

Impa nodded her thanks to Link as the lad quickly dispatched the Gohma larvae that had managed to injure her, and in very little time, both she and the young hero had taken care of the two small monsters that had managed to hatch. Now though came the time to turn their attention back to Queen Gohma herself… if they were going to make their way out of this, they were going to have to finish her off for good.

Link was able to hit the parasitic armored arachnid with his hookshot, causing a good deal of damage to her with his expert shot. The Sheikah could tell that they were starting the final phase of this fight, so they could not let up now, especially as Gohma seemed that she was about ready to drop down for another attack. Sure enough, after she found a better position on the ceiling of her lair, she did.

The giant monster suddenly dropped down from above, lashing out with her fierce claws and managing to graze Impa across her upper arm as she did so. Steeling herself from the slight pain of that blow, the Sheikah very quickly disappeared and reappeared some meters back, fixing her red gaze on their foe. It appeared that Queen Gohma was about to rear up for another mighty attack… and that gave Impa the perfect chance to try and catch her herself.

Focusing intently on the parasitic armored arachnid before her, Impa held out her left hand, palm facing Gohma. Taking a deep breath, she began to try to take hold of the massive shadow that was being cast by their enemy… it was rather tricky considering how dark the cave was, but the Sage of Shadow could still make out the difference between Gohma's shadow and any others that dominated the floor here. As soon as she felt that she had the magical connection in place, it was time to see if this would work here.

She had a hold of Queen Gohma's very shadow, so Impa quickly tightened her grip, and pulled her fist back.

----

Shadow Grab (stun):

--With an ability that she honed before awakening as a Sage, Impa can manipulate the shadows of others. She holds her hand out forward, focusing intently on her target in an attempt to take control of their shadow. Once she has set the magical connection to it, in one swift motion, she pulls her hand back into a fist, forcefully gripping their shadow as she does so. If successful, this damages her target as well as stuns them.

He had been expecting the armoured boss to drop down, stunned, like it did a few turns ago and like it always did in the past when he fired deku seeds at its eye.

"Did you miss?"
Tatl asked though with her usual tone of voice it sounded more like the words should end with an interrobang instead of a simple question mark. When the hookshot came back, Link inspected the tip, fingertip trailing a line through the eyeball fluid/tears still clinging to the metal tip. "No," he answered simply and in that moment of distraction, the queen dropped from the ceiling and landed a blow on Impa.

"Impa!" sword back in hand, he ran to the sage's side, ran right past her and lunge at the creature's weak point. Tatl, sensing Impa's spell, stayed back and hovered in the air above her. Did it work? "Another miss? Are both of you rusty in your abilities to fight in the dark or something? Really..."

Tatl sighed, then flew over in the blink of an eye to hover over Queen Gohma, deftly avoiding the creature's movements and limbs. "Come on! I can't glow that bright but it gives a tiny bit more shadow, doesn't it? Hurry up and try again. Never would have thought a sage would need targetting help."

Queen Gohma rose up to prepare her next attack, but before she could slam down with any of the mighty force that she held within her claws, she suddenly found herself unable to move. What… WHAT IN THE NAME OF SCALDERA WAS THIS?! The Sheikah woman before her managed to get a hold of her somehow… it as almost as though she was being held by her own shadow! That had never happened to her before!

Confused and enraged by this turn of events, the parasitic armored arachnid struggled with all her strength to try and break free, hoping that she would manage to avoid any major damage from this surprising spell. Somehow though, possibly thanks to the sheer number of other shadows present her in the dark, Gohma managed to escape the woman's hold unscathed and without being stunned… lucky or not, she was determined to make the best of this chance!

Only staggering somewhat from where she had been grabbed by the larger of her two prey targets, Queen Gohma restudied her stance, reared up, and came down, slashing at the younger target. She would not go down without a fight!

"I'm all right, Link," said Impa, hoping to reassure the boy that despite the surprise hit Queen Gohma had landed on her, she was just fine. She held her ground as he slashed at their foe's exposed eye, and although it appeared that they were starting to get to the end of this battle, they still had a little ways to go until it was over.

The Sheikah narrowed her gaze as she realized that whilst she had in fact caught hold of Queen Gohma's shadow, the parasitic armored arachnid managed to avoid any damage or stunning effects from the Shadow Grab. It was mildly frustrating that she had come out of the technique without any true effects save some apparent surprise, but Impa was at the very least pleased that she had been able to halt the monster's movement for a few seconds. It might not have injured her, but it did help both her and Link set up their next round of attacks.

And of course, it also seemed to help Tatl contend with the battle a bit more. When the yellow fairy was set to add her commentary, things were definitely going in favor of the Hero of Time and the Sage of Shadow.

"Whether it's needed or not, your assistance is always appreciated,"
stated Impa, watching the fairy carefully as she moved to hover right about Queen Gohma's eye. Her own red eyes widening as she caught an opening, Impa called, "Right there, Tatl!"

At that, Impa quickly created a shadow blade in her right hand, a manifestation of shadowy energy about the same size and length of her own knife, and dashed forward. Link's fairy companion had found the perfect spot in her targeting, and between that and her own keenness to spot weakness, the Sheikah hoped that she could deal some proper damage to Queen Gohma this round.

Eyes used to the limited lighting of the battlefield or not, it was With the Tatl's fairy glow that Link noticed in the incoming enemy slash. He backflipped backwards, feeling Queen Gohma's attack graze past the air he was in a mere half second ago.

When he landed on his feet, Impa and Tatl were working as a team and had landed a blow on the arachnid's eye, damaging it heavy enough for the creature to retreat backwards in pain so that the next two attacks missed. The Hero of Time spotted the shadow blade the sage made and for two second wondered if she was capable of dual-wielding her weapons - one normal blade and the other hand a shadow. Perhaps she could even create more than one. He never realised she had that ability even though it made a lot of sense considering she was the Sage of Shadows. It would certainly be a handy skill if she was ever caught without a physical weapon.

"Come on, it's almost dead," Tatl encouraged, still hovering above Queen Gohma and deftly avoiding the flailing body parts of the monster. "What are you waiting for it to climb back up to the ceiling or something?"

Link ran in, sword in hand just as the eye opened again and stabbed it as many times as he could before it closed.

Blast that smaller target was fast! Far too fast! In a last-second backflip, he had evaded her strong attack! Now she really had to act quick in order to take care of her prey before they took care of her! Queen Gohma moved to steady herself after she had come down, soon skittering about before she turned to the side, only to be met with a powerful strike of shadowy energy right to her sensitive eye. GOOD MOLDARACH, RIGHT WHERE IT SMARTED! How in all of Hyrule had they figured out her weak spot and continued to strike at it so effectively?!

The parasitic armored arachnid screeched in pain, rearing back as she tried to clear her vision, but as soon as she came down to fight back, she was met once again in the eye, this time with the sword of the young boy. He struck her twice, but the first hit to connect was all it took… that was the decisive blow.

Queen Gohma let out a bellowing screech as she reared back, her arms flailing erratically. No, no no no! She was fading! FADING! Oh… Gan--on….

With that strong blow dealt by the Hero of Time, much like the one he had dealt to her back in his own home of Hyrule, the parasitic armored arachnid was felled. She staggered back, her movements uncoordinated as her body failed her, and a few moments later, she had fallen onto the floor of the cave, right before light blue flames appeared on her body, causing her to disappear as the flames themselves soon extinguished themselves. Just like that… Queen Gohma was gone.

Bom-BOM. Dun-DUN-dun-DU-------N, Dun-DUUUUUUUN.

As Queen Gohma's body faded away, a glowing blue portal appeared where she had been. This was most likely a direct path back to the surface in the grasslands, and even though the duo did not need to take it just yet, it was nice to know that the portal was there for them to expedite their return trip to the inn. A little further back in the cave though, instead of a Heart Container, a new opening appeared… right before a distant MOOOOOO came from it, this bovine call much more distinct than the previous ones they had heard.

Had they finally found the Lon Lon cows that they set out to find in the first place?
