While Zach and Esalie unceremoniously dropped their packages in front of the horses, Bruce reached for one of the No Wave At Wrigley Shirt thermoses and jumped off the carriage. He walked over to the mage, turned him around with his foot and poured the ice cold water over his head. The mage opened his eyes, looked around and shot up into a sitting position while starting to chant.
“I wouldn’t do that if I were you. You made me angry enough as is. Don’t make it worse. Sit still until I am done helping your guard up or bear the consequences,” Bruce said to him, then turning around to the young man that Serina said was a lieutenant of the slaver, helping him up. When he heard the chant of the old mage reaching its end he simply turned around while still holding the man up with one hand, told his link to deploy full solar battle armor and held out his other arm to the mage, palm up.
