"Look... I know we've had our differences..."
"Adagio... frankly... I don't trust you," Sunset cut off the Siren. "You want that to change, you're going to have to work for it. And you know why."
Sunset knew that there were issues to work out. That was why she decided to go on this recon of some kind of ruins with Adagio. She'd already accepted Aria for her honesty, and even accepted Sonata, mostly because it turns out the girl makes awesome tacos, but Adagio was another story. She saw a little too much of her old self in the orange haired woman.
"I... I understand," Adagio sighed as she rested a hand on the hilt of her sword. "I knew going in this wouldn't be easy. Guess there's too much bad blood between us to just sweep it under the rug."
"You tried to turn my friends against each other to satisfy your hunger. Something like that can't be forgotten so easily," Sunset said before sighing. "At least... you're trying. I'll give you that."
The pair continued down a hallway before something stopped them. A large figure was standing in the way with his arms crossed. Sunset casually rested her hand on the hilt of the Master Sword, unsure what to make of this guy. Adagio, however, seemed nervous.
"Can't you feel it Sunset?" the Siren asked. "Dark power. He's just... giving off so much its suffocating."
The only response she got was Sunset tightening her grip on her sword. She could feel it, but not as strongly as Adagio. Whoever this man was... he was dangerous. After a moment, Sunset actually drew her sword. Adagio followed suit a moment later.
"I recognize that sword," the man said. "Yet you are no Hero chosen by the Goddesses."
"Why not do some character development then," Sunset shot back.
The man simply raised his right hand and balled it up into a fist. An image made of light appeared, revealing a pattern that Sunset was familiar with. The Triforce. But only one triagle was filled in. The one representing Power.
"You once tasted Power, and yet... you do not posess it," the man said.
"So... you must me the one the Gerudo are looking for in Hyrule," Sunset replied.
"I will teach them the price of betraying their king."
Before Sunset and Adagio could react, the man thrust his hand out, and a bolt of dark energy shot at the pair, slamming them both back into the far wall.
"You may wield the Blade of Evil's Bane. But know that I hold Power itself," the man taunted before launching another bolt, causing part of the ceiling to collapse on the two girls. Sunset quickly cast a shield spell, one that she had learned years ago when she was still Princess Celestia's student. She was surprised when Adagio actually threw in what little power she had left to reinforce the shield.
"We will meet again, little Unicorn," the man said. "I look forward to our next encounter..."
