    Impa was very glad to see Chell's marked improvement brought about by their practice session, and she was equally happy when her friend seemed to indicate that yes, the crossbow was the weapon for her. It had looked perfectly fitting in her hands earlier, and now that she had had the proper chance to test it out, it seemed that it really was the best one for her.

    Nodding in agreement with Sheik's words as the former test subject rejoined them, Impa gestured to Chell before adding, "He's quite right. I know that we come from different times as well as different worlds, but I'm pleased that you were able to find the right weapon for yourself. That can be a trick for some… but it would appear that the Hylian Crossbow was able to cross over time itself to find you."

    Before the three of them could say or write much more though, Impa very suddenly perked up. She had definitely heard something untoward… yet something familiar. Her eyes widening as she quickly whipped her head to the side, the Sheikah saw the powerful form of a moblin barreling down on them. True enough, they were up to their first monster encounter of the day, and more than that, it was one with a beast from Hyrule itself. This was not just any beast though… moblins were some of the most formidable of the common monsters from their world. They weren't as strong as some of the others, but their size and power alone nearly put them in their ranks.

    At the very least, this was a spear moblin instead of a club moblin… but that difference in power between the two was made up for the fact that this variety preferred to fight head on. With the trademark charge of the mighty beasts, Impa soon found this moblin rushing right for her. Unable to dodge in time, she quickly dashed forward to intercept the monster before it could potentially injure Sheik or Chell. The moblin was just a bit quicker than she had hoped though, causing her own block to be broken through.

    "Aaah!" yelled Impa as the moblin's spear made contact, pushing her back with a mighty force. She had managed to block part of the hit, but much the way that Link had encountered them in the future, she was knocked for a decent distance before landing in a crouch. That powerful strike was not enough to stop Impa though, for even though it had hurt quite a bit, she was back on her feet in an instant.

    Narrowing her gaze, she focused on the moblin before them, right before calling out, "Sheik, he's just like the moblins back home… remember how to watch for their charge attacks! Chell, it's time to put that training to use. Stay sharp!"

    With that and a sudden dash right back at her attacker, Impa made a short hop before running up the moblin's spear from where he had tilted it down at finishing his vicious attack. Heading right for the monster, Impa quickly drew her Sheikah Blade and slashed at his arm, right before summoning a Shadow Blade and striking twice at his thick neck. Her enemy sufficiently stunned from the heavy damage, the Sheikah quickly stepped on his head before leaping into the air, soon landing on the ground in a defensive stance. The moblin might have got the drop on them, but he was nothing they couldn't handle.

    Chell gave another smile at Sheik's own observation and patted the weapon again, happy her friends were seeing what she was feeling. She wasn't sure about the crossbow finding her through time itself like Impa had said, but truthfully? Stranger things had happened here. Much stranger. What really mattered was that it was hers now, and with it in hand, she would no longer be forced to stand on the sidelines if anything threatened them ever again. It was an empowering thought, and she found herself even more grateful for the generosity of the people who had gifted it to her. No matter how unnecessary they may have deemed it, she owed them, big time.

    And, as it turned out, she made her decision not a moment too soon.

    "RrrAAAH!"

    The former test subject barely had time to register her friend's sudden alarm when some... thing charged their little group, the large spear in it's hands pointed straight toward Impa. Every muscle in Chell's body seemed to go taught while she watched, stunned, as the Sheikah tried to intercept the creature, only to be flung back a ways with a yelp. Thankfully, she appeared relatively unharmed and was back up again not a moment later, which was enough to snap the woman out of it, causing her to whirl around and get a good, quick look at the beast. It was huge, like nothing else she had ever seen before, and looked distinctly pig-like, though it was obviously anything but docile. Chell had no idea what might have set it off, but at the moment, the very real, disconcertingly familiar threat of danger was enough to launch her mind into what had been it's natural state for the majority of her life leading up to her arrival in the Breach: an unflinching hyper focus, deadset on eliminating whatever stood in it's way by any means possible.

    She was going to take a wild guess that this was what Sheik had meant when he had warned her about monsters.

    None the less, she had indeed caught Impa's command before the Sheikah took off again, acknowledging it with a barely discernable nod before looking for a way to take down the creature herself. It was still somewhat difficult to get into the mindset of fighting with her new weapon (And really, it probably said something about her that her first instinct had been to look for portal surfaces), but she moved quickly enough, doing a quick reload before charging forward towards the beast herself. Once he was in range, the former test subject used the initial confusion from Impa's attack to her advantage, falling into position and firing two arrows at the enemy's head. Now it was time to see whether all that training had paid off...

    It appeared that the disguised princess' earlier warning about possible monsters had come true, as not only had they been found by the first one, it was one from her own home of Hyrule. It was a moblin… a great, hulking beast with a mighty spear and an impressive ability to rush his opponents. The three could certainly handle him of course, but they would have to be careful.

    "Impa!"
    called Sheik, watching as her guardian was thrown back from the spear charge. She knew that moblins were very strong, but it still caught her by surprise that even Impa could get knocked back so by one. Thankfully, she managed to catch herself in a crouch instead of being knocked all the way onto her back, and in no time she had jumped into a standard attack stance. Sheik breathed a silent sigh of relief at that… the hit had looked to be a hard one, but at least her guardian was okay.

    "Understood!"
    exclaimed Sheik, right before dashing to strafe around the moblin as Impa ran up its spear. She watched as the Sheikah unleashed her powerful shadow blade strikes, starting to ready her own attack series as her guardian leapt off of the confused monster's head. She watched as Chell moved to put the crossbow to its first actual use, silently cheering her on… this was a big jump from a tree with a target on it! Hopefully, her arrows would strike true.

    Chell aimed and fired two quick shots, but unfortunately, her arrows only hit the armor of the moblin and thus did not damage it at all. At least she was getting in some good practice outside of a standard target… even with their massive size, moblins could be surprisingly tricky to take down with archery. They were pretty vulnerable, but you still had to hit them in just the right spot.

    Noting that the beast was still a little stunned from Impa's initial attack on it, and Sheik saw her own chance for an opening. She still had some energy left from the assault on the Planet Phaaze that she had not got to use up (namely due to the fact that firing weapons from a ship was nowhere near the same as jumping into combat as oneself), and she was ready to fight.

    Calling on the same level of focus that she used the past couple of days of the Phazon crisis, Sheik kept her sights on the moblin, charging up a sizable blast of Din's Fire before launching it at the beast. She then built up two more blasts, one in each hand before unleashing them simultaneously, soon causing a dome of fire like a smaller version of the spell's original form.

    Rrr-ha! His first charge had hit right on the mark! Yes, the tallest of the three intruders had managed to intercept part of the jab, but his mighty spear ran her through, throwing her backwards. THAT was the power held by the moblins! Leaving his spear angled down so as to possibly follow through with a secondary attack to the Sheikah, the moblin barely had time to blink before she was RUNNING UP HIS SPEAR right towards him! WHAT?! How was she doing that?!

    "RrrrAAHH!" exclaimed the moblin as she slashed a shadow blade right at his neck, both strikes causing significant damage. Stunned from the powerful hits she had landed on him, he was able to do little more than stand as she stepped on his head to jump off of him. Sweet Stalfos that hurt he wasn't expecting her to be able to recover from his spear strike much less deal that grave of an injury to him! He could hardly keep his footing after that!

    Growling and fumbling after that first counterattack, he soon found two arrows stuck in his helmet…. now that was just annoying! At least they had missed his more vulnerable flesh, though… unfortunately, the same could not be said of the large fireball that soon met him.

    "RRRRRR!!"

    Snarling in pain from the initial impact and the slight burns he had sustained, the moblin just barely managed to miss the small dome of fire that the smaller target had followed up with. Just how was such a young enemy capable of magic like that?! And it had almost burned him even worse! He would not stand for this! You were all intruding on his watch, and it was his job to take you out!

    Quickly readying his spear, the moblin jumped back into his standard charge stance, right before rushing the smaller target. No one was safe from his might!

    Between Impa's own precise strikes and a blast of Din's Fire, the moblin was on his last legs in very short order. Chell's arrows might not have caused any direct damage, but they had at least hit their mark. For a sudden jump from a target on a tree to a moving moblin, that definitely counted for something… practice was essential and helped in battle after all, but real combat was still a different experience. The way one was supposed to react was the same… but the very nature of it still varied from that core.

    The moblin managed to get his bearings together well enough to get set for another signature charge attack, this one aimed right at Sheik. However, between the short charge distance and the quick reflexes of the disguised princess, she was able to use a deku nut to disappear from his attack path, soon reappearing far behind him completely unscathed.

    With a quick glance to Sheik to make sure that she hadn't been grazed, Impa immediately switched her focus back to the moblin. He had just attacked, so she had a very narrow window to catch him off guard…

    "Let's finish this," stated Impa, narrowing her gaze as she found what appeared to be her perfect opening.

    Quickly disappearing from sight, a split-second later Impa reappeared behind the moblin, soon using her Sheikah Blade to strike at his back with three quick slashes, right before she dashed backwards to get clear from the moblin's range of attack. Unfortunately, despite the precision of her strikes, it appeared that the monster had managed to get some invulnerability for that moment… meaning that this battle was not yet finished.

    Okay, well, given that this was her first real fight, Chell guessed she couldn't have asked for much better than what she got. Her arrows had hit her target, but unfortunately, not in the way she had really meant for them to, as they were now stuck in the moblin's helmet, not causing him any damage what so ever. The former test subject frowned at this in mild irritation, but no matter - she would just have to aim better next time. Sheik, thankfully, was right behind her with what appeared to be fireballs in hand, managing to hit his mark at least once, which was enough to cause the beast to charge him again once he had recovered. Feeling a tiny flare of anger rise up within her, Chell just barely surppressed a growl before Sheik suddenly disappeared and reappeared behind the monster, seemingly out of thin air.

    ...Right. Magic users.

    Letting a tiny smirk flicker across her features, she refocused on the beast again, just as Impa attacked and... seemingly missed, somehow. That was strange. Was the beast getting stronger? Gaining immunity to their attacks? Deciding to focus on just defeating the thing for now, the former test subject quickly moved behind the beast and tried a different tactic this time - aiming and subsequently firing an arrow at the exposed back of his knee, gritting her teeth in focus. It wouldn't be enough to take him down for good, but it would hopefully slow him down enough for the rest of them to get some good attacks in.

    Sheik wished that she'd hit her mark better on her second combined attack, but at least one of the blasts of Din's Fire had connected. Unfortunately, the success of her attack round earned the ire of the moblin, and she soon found herself on his next charging path. Given her close proximity to him, she had very little time to act, but thankfully, her quick reflexes helped her out.

    Instantly drawing a deku nut and using it to disappear from the crash course the moblin was set on, Sheik narrowly avoided what could have otherwise been a heavy hit. As she reappeared quite a ways behind the monster, she let out a sigh of relief. It had been a close call, but thankfully, her training had paid off.

    Exchanging Impa's quick glance and nodding to her guardian to show that she was okay, Sheik's gaze soon narrowed as she got set for her next attack. The moblin seemed to have got lucky in somehow managing to avoid taking damage from Impa's knife strikes, but his and Chell's luck reversed when the former test subject's single arrow struck true.

    Unable to resist grinning at seeing that hit from Chell, Sheik took advantage of the moblin being slowed down to charge up three more blasts of Din's Fire, combining them into one mighty attack and sending them right for his back. The shot with the arrow was a good one, but he was not about to let even a well aimed shot keep him down for too long. She had to make this attack count…

    … and it seemed that this time, she'd hit her mark just right.
