“I know very little, and it might be dangerous but I don’t have any other choice.” He followed along in the water, making sloshing noises as he went. “Something was taken from me, what I need to get it back is within that temple.” He mulled over it if this giant of a man spoke the truth, it sounded as if he could travel in the temple safely. “Let me go with you, if that is where you are going.”
“¡No!” He steps towards the zora. “The temple and the valley is cursed! By blood unrightfully spilt, filling the rivers and the canyons.” His fists clench and his eyes narrow, but he backs off. This little creature was no threat, he feels bad for getting angry and he sighs.
“What is it you seek exactly, what is it you know about this Temple?” It never hurt to learn the truth, this could be a trick.
