Zelda smiled as she looked over her kingdom from her balcony, Hyrule was safe and recovering nicely in the wake of Gannon's defeat and everything was returning to normal.
and she had her loving and wonderful husband to be to thank for that.
however, even as she admired the beauty of the landscape, a yellow and putrid smelling tidal wave started to wash over the land, coming towards the castle and-
Zelda sat up with a start, and then looked down at her bed, then over at her sleeping hero.
who had wet the bed. again.
"Link wake up! you're doing it again!" she growled, grabbing a pillow and hitting him on the head with it.
Link, who had been snoring gently around his thumb (he was a total thumb sucker in his sleep, something that Zelda found to be ADORABLE!) he sat up now and glared, then looked down and groaned.
"Save it." she growled. "I know, you're sorry. and you did everything you were suppose to, including not having anything to drink before bed and you don't know HOW this just keeps happening." she huffed.
Zelda had tried, she really had, to be understanding the first dozen times this happened.
But she was getting sick and tired of being pissed on every night.
Link for his part looked like a scolded child, and had his head downcast, his thumb on the edge of his lip.
"Oh for din's sake.. come on, we'll get the servants to clean this bed up and find somewhere else to sleep." she paused and sniffed the air. "After a bath." she added and held her nose.
naturally it was Impa who answered their call first, and while she had the bedding taken care of she also lead them to a private bath area, having prepared two tubs of warm water.
"...You were ready for this?" Link asked in a small voice as he took off his green night shirt.
"Well when someone has wet the bed every single night for the past month, one tends to notice a pattern. the sheikah chuckled.
"Oh." Link said and slipped into his tub, the warm water filling good and grabbing a knot of soap weed, he began to scrub himself.
The princess just glared and huffed, willing herself to calm down, it wasn't really fair to be mad at Link for something he couldn't control but at the same time she was a princess, soon to be Queen and she was getting pissed on like a dirty green rupee whore!
sliding her purple night grown off she slid into her tub (they had separate ones as sometimes the warm water made link relax a little TOO much..ugh) she let Impa clean her, relaxing herself as her faithful servant/bodyguard/best friend took care of her, and put her mind to work on the Link problem.
She couldn't just dump him.. she loved the blond haired hero with all her heart even if he was annoying at times. They had already tried different potions and brews that were suppose to help, and at best they did nothing, at worse.. she wrinkled her nose recalling the night Link had messed the bed.
as the royal consort Link was expected to sleep in her room, though she could always make a excuse for why he wasn't, heck, they had managed to cover up any rumors over the bed wetting so far so Zelda knew the castles servants were trustworthy.
Still she'd miss falling asleep while snuggling with Link, with him nuzzling into her almost like a small child or a bab-
Zelda opened her eyes and smiled, she knew what they had to do, and was shocked with herself she hadn't considered it sooner.
"M'lady?" Impa asked politely.
"Finish up here Impa, then you and I have much to plan." She said and smiled over at Link, who was just laying back in the tub, enjoying it and too zoned out to see the almost fiendish look upon his beloveds face.
After their baths the couple had been found separated beds, which was disappointing for Link, he found listening to Zelda's breath and heart beat to be oddly comforting but he made due and managed to sink back into a slumber, once again one that was filled with flashes and images from his many battles that he had waged to save the kingdom.
Thankfully when he awoke in the morning, the bed was dry. He would of hated to need anther bath and to of been responsible for two pissy beds.
getting dressed he had breakfast with the princess, who as usual had calmed down and was kind with her words,then he went off to go and do the morning drill's the palace guards.
As the royal consort he didn't NEED to do anything around the palace but Link had taken it upon himself to train the palace guards, so that the next wanna be Gannon would have a hard time of it.
After lunch with the guards (Zelda had been busy, and as the princess of a recovering nation, Link understood this) Link went out on horseback with a patrol to sweep up any left over monsters created by Gannon's dark magic.after a scuffle with some Moblins who had been trying to bring back the king of evil with a poorly thought out plan (they had been plotting to steal Gannon's remains even though he wasn't dead so much as trapped) they rode back and washed up, with link dressing in a formal pair of white pants, and a dark blue dress shirt, and taking the time to comb his hair for supper with the court.
(Truth be told, he hated this meal and would of rather faced anther 20 Moblins by himself, but it was the way things were done, so Link just put on his best fake smile, was careful to eat in a gentlemanly manner, and try not to embarrass Zelda.)
Finally with the dinner over Zelda and Link retired to their bedchambers. the staff, well schooled by now in handling the soaked bedding and the like had gotten the room cleaned up and smelling better and the bed was perfectly dried (though no doubly stained under the satin sheets)
"So link, We need to talk about the dodongo in the room." Zelda said, after they had changed to more comfortable clothes.
"My..My bed wetting?" Link asked, looking at the floor, cheeks starting to turn red.
"No, your habit of dancing in your sleep. of course your bed wetting." Zelda joked, thought chided herself for it. "look, The way I see it, we have one of two choices here. One, is that you and I sleep in separate beds so that when you wet yourself, at least I'm not getting a golden shower."
"I..That makes sense, Though I'll miss falling asleep in your arms." Link said with a miserable tone to his voice and his face showed his dislike of that option as well. "what was the other choice?"
"Well, The other choice lets us share a bed, though requires you to wear protection." She said, blushing a little herself now.
Link blinked, and tilted his head.
"I don't think the Zora or Goron tunic would help with this Zelda." he said, rubbing the back of his head.
Zelda blinked, then facepalmed.
'how can he be so brilliant at solving puzzles and yet so DUMB?!' she thought.
"Not..not quite what I was talking about." She said. As link went to open his mouth she cut him off, trying to save him from making a fool of himself.
"I'm talking about diapers link." she said flatly.
"...Diapers? as In.. the things babies wear?" Link asked, his face turning crimson now.
"well not just babies, some older children wear them till they stop bed wetting and well.." Zelda trailed off.
"Oh, so I'm not a baby..just a big child." Link huffed.
"Well when you pout like that." Zelda said. "be reasonable Link, it's sleep in anther bedroom without me, and hope this problem clears up before our wedding.. or wear the diapers. would being diapered, just in front of myself, and maybe Impa be THAT much worse then being seen in your pissy clothes?"
"well..I mean..I guess not.." Link mumbled.
"Good. then strip and go lay on the bed while i go get Impa."
"C-Can't we just keep t-this to ourselfs?" Link asked, his voice hitting a high note as he poked his fingers together.
"I would if I could but er, I've never actually diapered someone before, while Impa used to change mine..soooo I kinda figure she'd be the perfect choice to show me the ropes you know?"
Link gave a tiny nod and started to strip as Zelda went into the hallway, spotting Impa who was waiting nearby with a bag over one shoulder and nodded to her and gave her a thumbs up.
Links blush had moved down his neck and to his shoulders as he laid back on the bed, his hands covering his manhood as he looked up at Impa who gave him a warm smile, then set the bag down on the bed.
"I'm seen your privates before while attending to your baths. and you'll look funny if I diaper you with your hands down there." She said with a wink, making link blush more and move his hands.
Truthfully he was fighting the urge to suck his thumb right now, but figured with what was about to happen it wouldn't look good.
Impa was babbling away to Zelda about how to fold the diaper and link just shut his eyes and tried to block the whole thing out. to pretend he was somewhere else.
with his eyes closed, he pictured a nice flat farmland and riding on epona and smiled, cooing gently.
Zelda bite down on her touage to prevent herself from laughing as link went totally baby zone as Impa lifted up his legs and set the bulky cloth under the boys buns, then powdered him.
raising a eye as link's hand moved for his mouth again Impa locked eyes with Zelda, then nodded at the bag as she finished getting Link coated and started to use the heavy set and durable pins to fasten the bulky diaper around the hips of the hero.
Link's relaxing ride came to a sudden stop as suddenly his mouth was invaded by a large rubber nipple and link opened his eyes to see Zelda bending down, and smiling and giggling softly.
instinctively Link sucked on whatever it was in his mouth, but a downward glance confirmed it, he was nursing on a pacifier!
A muffled cry of protest went to come out and link moved to spit the pacifier out but zelda placed two fingers on the mouth guard and tsked softly.
"Come now link, we both know you wanna suck your thumb, and this is just cleaner..and besides." She paused, but then grinned and bend down lower and kissed his forehead. "You look VERY adorable."
Link suckled on the paci after that, red faced and squirming as he stepped into the tight rubbed pants impa held out for him, the faded purple clung to his hips and Link felt like a over sized big baby.
"We'll have to look into getting some in other colors. I want my little prince to be a little rainbow butt." Zelda said, patting link's puffy behind.
Link had been about to say something, but as Zelda patted his butt, he barely heard her talking about just how cute his butt was, and just ended up turning himself more into the pats, and getting on his knees and hands on the bed, wiggling his butt.
Zelda had just been patting the butt and teasing Link a little to have fun, but when the padded hero of cuteness positioned himself to get more out of his butt pats she found herself grinning ear to ear.
This, this had all sorts of potential and for the first time she was VERY glad that her hero, her baby husband to be, had started wetting the bed.
