While flying with their Loftwings after the Wing Ceremony, an unknown force swept Link and Zelda apart and pulls the latter down to the Surface, while Link passes out back to Skyloft.

He was awakened and beckoned by a spirit named Fi, who was calling him in his sleep. Link follows her, and soon enters the Statue of the Goddess, where he pulls out a sword called the Goddess Sword, the sword of Fi's spirit.

In his desire to find and save Zelda, Link and Fi descends down to the Surface.
