    Link nodded, sheathing his sword. To most a battle against a giant monster would be enough to ruin an afternoon, but to the two citizens of Hyrule this was nothing! Even in the bad earth cartoons of the 80s Hyrule was known for being a very dangerous place.

    Link ran ahead again, Tatl following behind him. He wished he'd thought to bring Epona, though he would still walk with Impa, the little horse would probably like to have a chance to run free. He made a not to bring her here soon. Link reached the top of the next hill and spotted a large rock about 20 feet from him. In Hyrule (and in Termina too) cows could be found in caves, grottoes underground, and sometimes the entrance to these holes was beneath a rock.

    "I found a boulder!" He shouted back to Impa, and then slide down the embankment and stopped by the rock. A bomb should do it, some rocks were too solid to be destroyed by bombs, and for those he's used the Megaton Hammer as an adult, and now he used the Gorom Mask to punch them. But this one should be explodable.

    Link pulled out a bomb and lit it, dropping it by the rock and stepping back.

    As the two continued over the grassy terrain, Impa spotted the boulder as Link ran ahead to it, thinking much the same thing that the lad was and soon smiling to him as he called back to her regarding his find. She soon appeared by his side after he'd set the bomb down by the boulder and stepped back, watching it explode whilst talking the boulder with it. As the dust and smoke cleared from the explosion, sure enough a decent-sized hole in the ground was revealed, opening up the way to an underground grotto. Impa nodded to Link, saying, "Excellent work. I'll drop in first to check and see if the coast is clear."

    At that, the Sheikah swiftly leapt down into the grotto, standing up from her landing pose and glancing about the dimly lit cave. It appeared to be a fairly sizable one, complete with a smaller tunnel system radiating forth from it. It was entirely likely that there were some more monsters waiting down here given the faint presence Impa was picking up, but from what she could read of them as well as the fact that they seemed to be further off into this network of tunnels, she knew full well that she and Link could handle them.

    "Come on down, Link," called Impa, waiting until the boy had landed and got his footing before adding, "I don't think we're alone down here, but nothing's shown itself yet. I think we might have some company as we press on, but we can handle them."

    For some, the prospect of monsters further off in an underground grotto might have been enough to make them immediately return to the field much like how peahats could ruin afternoons, but to Link and Impa it was just another adventure. The two continued on into the caves, looking to see what awaited them as they searched to see if any cows had wound up down here.

    Link nodded to Impa and let her go first. Normally he would go first, but Impa was one of, if not the only person he would let go ahead of him. She was a strong fighter and he wasn't worried, if she jumped into danger, she'd get herself out of it. When he heard her call up to him, he dropped into the hole, Tatl following, and landed on the floor of the cavern.

    He looked around, eyes taking a moment to adjust to the dark. "It looks like it goes pretty far." He said, curiosity in his voice. He couldn't help but want to know where every cave and tunnel went, he loved exploring. And they might find cows in here, though he didn't hear any mooing yet.

    He started forward, though keeping next to Impa, since she had said they might face a threat. He was getting pretty confident again in his skills after being here for a while, but it was just stupid to fight alone if you didn't have to. Tatl flew around, helping light the cave as they crept away from the entrance. This cave, though, was much brighter than the ones he'd explored with Vivi and Ava, there were patches of light here and there from small tunnels leading to the surface, and they let rays of sunlight in.

    Oh if these two had thought that their day was going to be smoother now that they were out of the field and into the underground tunnel network they would have to think again! From the shadows on either side of the two Hyruleans emerged two Goriya. Their kind had called Hyrule home once long ago, but that time hadn't been when Link and/or Impa had been there. The beings appeared to be a humanoid hybrid of a fox and weasel, were clothed in dirty tunics, and held boomerangs in their hands. Their animal eyes gleamed in the dim light, and with a snarl they soon hurled the boomerangs right at the two adventurers.

    Goriya 1: 75/75
    Goriya 2: 75/75

    (First attack: Link. Second: Impa)

    "Indeed it does… given this cave and what mysteries it could hold, we might have to find some others to explore someday," mused Impa as she continued forward into the grotto with Link close to her side. She was just as into exploring as Link was, having traveled the world extensively and researched all sorts of secrets that it held, and she was always up for another adventure. She was used to traveling alone for certain trips even after Princess Zelda had come into her care, but she always enjoyed good company, and both the young hero as well as her ward back in Hyrule were some of the best company she could ask for.

    The light in the cave was rather sparse, but for a secret grotto, the dim light was actually relatively good. Still, the Sheikah's night sight was helping her to better keep an eye on their surroundings as Tatl's own soft glow helped to illuminate the path they were taking. As the three made their way further down the passage, Impa quickly shifted into a defensive stance, stating, "Link, get ready. I think we have a couple of monsters waiting to greet us."

    Sure enough, no sooner had Impa picked up on the potential danger than did two Goriya appear from the shadows on the sides of the cavern. Impa had never seen one of these creatures in person, but she had read about them in various Hyrulean texts and bestiaries, so once she saw their rodent-like features and their boomerangs drawn, she very quickly knew what they were dealing with. A snarl and boomerang throw later, and the Hylian and Sheikah found themselves engaged in their latest battle.

    Impa managed to dodge the boomerang thrown at her just in time, swiftly jumping back and narrowly avoiding the weapon as it began its return flight back to its owner. Unfortunately, Link took a surprisingly strong hit from the boomerang thrown at him, but the Sage of Shadow knew that the lad had taken far worse and still been just fine. The instant that he seemed to recover from the blow, Impa dashed forward, beating the boomerang back to its Goriya as she unleashed three quick strikes against it, right before doubling back as the boomerang returned to the hand that had thrown it.

    Link drew his sword at the sight of the two... he didn't know what they were, but then he realized they had boomerangs- THWACK! Cringing in pain, he rubbed the back of his head where one of the boomerangs had hit him. He really needed to pay more attention sometimes, that was just embarrassing.

    Tatl whizzed over to the nearer of the two enemies, the one Impa wasn't attacking, and flitted around it. "I've never seen these before but I think they're called Goriyas," She shouted, doing her usual enemy investigation. "I don't know anything about them, but you should avoid the boomerangs!"

    Thank you, Tatl. Link could have told you that, his head was still stinging. The boy charged at the Goriya, and slashed it with his sword. Hopefully Tatl hadn't forgotten to mention any weak-spots or defenses these things might have.

    The Goriyas hissed and snarled as they were attacked by both the Sheikah and the Hylian, their vulpine-rodent-like forms soon shrinking away as they moved backwards in order to distance themselves from their formidable foes. Those blows had hurt, but the two monsters were not about to let the Hyruleans get the better of them. The two had ventured into their dwelling unannounced, and if they and their boomerangs had anything to say about it, they would make them regret having tried to pass by them. Their spirit renewed by their determination to defeat the interlopers, the two Goriyas soon lifted their arms and again hurled the boomerangs, this time each targeting the closer of the two fighters to their respective selves.

    Impa listened at Tatl's report of the monsters even though it wasn't anything that she and Link didn't already know… whilst it was only slightly helpful, at least the fairy confirmed what Impa had thought about the beasts not having any true weak spots. It appeared that their best option was to simply overpower them and take them down just like any other standard battle with a monster.

    As the two Goriyas backed away slightly and hurled their boomerangs once more, Impa dodged to the side, avoiding the weapon thrown at her with relative ease. Link wasn't as fortunate, as the boomerang hit him with another surprisingly strong hit. Sympathizing for the lad and hoping that he was all right, Impa moved her blade to her left hand and readied six throwing needles in her right, hoping that a distance attack of her own might help them to sooner take out these troublesome beasts.

    "Link, are you all right there?"
    called Impa strafing to the side and jumping into a ready stance, only throwing the six needles once she knew the lad was okay from the new blow. She threw them at the Goriya that had been weakened a little more from Link's sword slash, in part striking back at him for having hurt her young friend, and also taking advantage of his lowered health.

    Link saw the boomerang whiz by, but the important thing he forgot was that boomerangs always come- THWACK! Right in the back of his head... again. He blinked the stars from in front of his eyes, a new-found sympathy for the many monsters he'd used his boomerang on.

    "Don't you listen to anything?" Tatl snapped. She'd really only told him one thing about these Goriyas, and he wasn't even doing that!

    "Link, are you all right there?"

    It was nice to have someone around who's first reaction was about his safety rather than if he was listening to them or not. Shaking his head to clear it and then nodding, Link replied, "I'm fine!" With a little grin, feeling a bit embarrassed for being hit so many times. As Impa attacked the Goriya that had just hit him, he turned his blade to the other one, slashing at it several times.
