“Do Zora even like hot water?” Link asked, sinking his body into the rushing, torrid waters. Every muscle instantly turning into putty.
“Of course!” said Prince Sidon, smiling brightly, having just found a spot that could submerge his large body completely.
“It's just the water at the Domain is so frigid, I thought you would prefer cold water.”
“True, Zora have adapted to be most comfortable in very cold waters, but hot water has its pleasures too. I don't think I could live very comfortably in hot water all the time, but it is welcome on occasion.”
Link nodded sagely, “That's good to know, I'll have to bring you out here more often.”
Sidon winked, “I would enjoy that.”
After a long pause, with the snow gently falling around them and their inner sense of peace at its peak, Sidon broke the silence with a concern, “Though, there is one thing that is very unpleasant about hot water for Zora.”
“What is that?” Link questioned.
“Getting out of it.”

As they walked along the shore, Link looked out at the vast expanse of the ocean, this hugely overwhelming body.
“Sidon?” he started, “How come your dad is so big?”
Sidon pondered for a moment, a question that he had asked himself many a time when he was but a zora guppy. “Well, my dad said that when he was a kid, he was even smaller than Mipha. But then he met my mother, he felt so much love in his heart, that his body couldn't hold it all. So he grew and grew and grew so that he could finally carry all the love that was inside him.”
Link and Sidon fell into silence, Sidon's story swirling around in Link's head like the water around their feet. Link finally broke the sound of the rhythmic beat of the waves, “Do you think you'll ever get that big?”
Sidon looked to the sky and then looked down at the tiny Hylian strolling along side him. He reached out his giant hand to clasp the miniature one, “I think I might.”
