"Ah! So the educated man did bring a bottle? Brilliant, take a good swig if you thirst right now, then fill it up with this muck." Instructed the magician, who then kicked at the puddle with his pointy and somehow unscuffed shoe, launching a light shaking of dirt into the already dirty pool of water. The magician shook his head at Sano's sudden outburst. "No no Sano, I haven't gotten to Latin yet. And who's leaving? If you wish to fly away, then why not I simply turn you all into birds and be done with it?" He held up his hands in an honest shrug, then added with something of a sly smile. "It's a very simple process... and I've always wanted to try a larger group act."

Mud wrinkled his forehead in surprise at Sano's possession of chocolate. "Chocolate bars? What a dandy treat for two ambiguously employed men to have in a hot-air balloon in the middle of the desert!" He twirled the end of his moustache and shook his head in fascination. "You are a most interesting person auratus Sano. I think I should like to ring bells in your ears someday." If you need time to have time to have passed, then feel free to say it has passed. Within reason, of course. Just consider that the beginning of the thread was around the start of nightfall. Time between events has not been defined exactly.

Then it goes dark again. Sano puts it in a breast pocket, and then addresses the others. "Looks like none of the boxes got damaged." He points at the different boxes and list some of their content. "That's the cooler with the chocolates, beer, whisky, rum and other treats, that one is empty, that one too, this box that toppled over is the medical supplies, bandages, painkillers, antiseptics, stuff like that, and that box is the miscs, clothes, books, tools, et cetera. We should take some of this stuff with us to that camp."

Mud walked around the crash site, surveying the contents of the balloon. "Were you two planning to go on a long trip, or a very short excursion?" He said, with a hint of amusement. "Well, I can think of quite a few people and one large white worrywart who might appreciate these. It's a terrific shame that there are so many boxes though. Too many, I think, for two men and a dodo to carry in a single trip." He spent a moment with his head bowed and hand over his mouth, contemplating the problem. It was not long before his eyes lit up dazzlingly and leaked their way down into a large grin on his face. The magician lifted his head, and asked. "Say! Would either of you fine gentlemen care to temporarily take a grand position as this expedition's personal beast of burden? It will be a fine experience, I'm certain of it!"
