"Alright. Here's where we stop. If you Wizards succeed, there'll be no need to pay me." He stopped for a moment. "Just please. Get back safe."
Alito had come to like the man, talking with him the whole way. His companion, another wizard from Lamia Scale had been quiet most of the trip, but the driver kept Alito company. The man had no family, and drove people around for a living. He hadn't been attacked by bandits yet, but he guessed that's because he only carried people, not cargo. Alito felt sorry for the man, but the driver seemed happy with his existence. He was awfully cute too, not that Alito took special notice or anything.
Alito had explained to the man when they rented his services the dire situation they were addressing, saving Oak Town from attacking wizards. The driver seemed happy to help, and applauded the two men's courage to go out and fight. They had stopped for lunch shortly before they arrived at Oak Village, and the man covered both Alito and Chaos' meal. He was truly generous, indeed.
Alito jumped down from the carriage, glad to finally be able to stand fully upright.
"Thank you good sir! Chaos, are you coming? A Super-Heavy Champion never keeps a client waiting!" Alito let the sun hit his face. The warmth felt good, and he was prepared for whatever came next. He motioned Chaos to follow, and set forth to the town square, where the client said they would be waiting.
