Zelda pulls the dog back and Link begins to wonder why Dowser, who is always nice to new people, does not like Charles. During dinner, Charles brags with tales of his travels, saying he defeated twenty Octoroks with a swing of his axe, to which Link remarks that Octoroks are easy and is not impressed. When the meal is over, Link suggests to the King to have an indoor archery match in order to "teach [Charles] a thing or two. Link nervously awaits his turn, and just as Charles is about to go up to the line, he asks that Zelda hold his scarf for good luck, part of a Morian custom.
Zelda agrees, and Charles makes a bullseye.
Now even more nervous since his reputation as Hyrule's mightiest warrior is at stake, Link begins to choose an arrow when Impa walks towards him and tells him to use the Green Arrow that she puts in his hand, saying it is enchanted with magic. The king congratulates Charles and asks Zelda if it would be too premature to show the knight of Moria the Triforce of Wisdom. Zelda hesitates, stating that they cannot afford to lose the Triforce of Wisdom to Ganon. The shocked king asks Zelda if she believes that Charles is linked to Ganon and goes on to tell Charles that he wishes to show him the Triforce.
Link, who was listening nearby, turns to Impa in outrage. Impa tells him to calm down and hands him a piece of paper into his hand that will guide him on what he should do.
The piece of paper, however, is written in ancient Hyrulean Number-Letter Code. When Link deciphers it, it contains the word "Forestall. Zelda explains that the Triforce of Power is in Ganon's hands while the Triforce of Courage is buried deep in Link's heart. The king goes on to say that if the Triforce of Wisdom were to fall in the wrong hands, it could bring ruin upon Hyrule. Charles takes a Morian oath and promises to protect the Triforce, and the king then dubs him a knight of Triforce. Link now has two choices: keep quiet or say something to the king.
Link continues to watch Charles who begins to call forward to the "creatures of the night," crying out in a strange and hideous tongue. This causes for a pack of Bots to appear, and although Link is eager to climb down and fight Charles, he realizes that if he does, he will never find out what Charles is up to.
Link eventually reaches the town of Saria, but no one answers to open the gate. Here, he reaches into his pocket, having either the key given to him by the old man or the magic potion given to him by the Moblin in the Midoro Swamp. Link, finally back in his room, goes to bed to sleep. The next day, Impa wakes him up and tells him that the king has called a Royal Council, mentioning it has to do with Ganon. Before Link heads off, she warns him that if the king needs a champion, he might pick Charles over Link. The King of Hyrule says there have been strange reports from the citizens of Hyrule stating that an entire gang of Darknuts were spotted in the Jungle of Favors , and that a recent thunderstorm caused for Goriyas to fall from the sky.
Fearing for the safety of the Triforce of Wisdom, the king says that they must move the sacred triangle to the Fifth Castle of Ancient Hyrule , which is southeast of North Castle past deserts, rivers and swamps. When Zelda asks who will deliver the Triforce of Wisdom there, the king mentions he has two heroes in mind: Link and Charles. Anxiously, Link awaits the king's decision, and it is soon revealed that Charles will be the one to take the Triforce to the Fifth Castle.
Link furiously reminds the king of all the brave deeds he has done and claims that Charles can't be trusted because he is evil. The king raises his hand and silences Link, saying he better have proof to back up the serious charge he has raised against Charles. Link rushes through the door, but just then Impa yells out to him and tells him to follow her.
They reach her chambers and Impa informs Link that she used her rune dice and found out a message that tells her about Charles's true identity. Link says that he has already found out that Charles is Ganon, but thanks her anyway and goes off to chase after Ganon. He mounts Cloud and follows Charles's tracks to Midoro Swamp. Eventually he bumps into Charles who has a troop of Moblins behind him, all surrounding Link.
Wondering what everyone will say when he gets back to the palace, he realizes the castle is completely dark. He checks every room but sees that no one answers. Eventually he walks into the banquet hall, where a crowd surprises him and applaud him for saving Hyrule. The king thanks him for defeating Ganon and for bringing back the Triforce of Wisdom safely. Link thanks Impa for her help and Zelda, embarrassed, approaches the young hero and confesses what an "idiot" she was, to which Link replies by saying that maybe she'll now "appreciate the talent here at home. The book ends with the king throwing an arm around Link's shoulder and saying that it's time to celebrate.
