The kid’s carrying a whole box. He puts it down in front of the wizard, apparently overlooking the man’s frozen state.
The kid looks back and forth between the two of you and seems extremely nervous. Probably comes from trying to follow two sets of orders – and yours would have been lower priority, it seems.
You hold up the glove.
“It’s all right, it’s taken care of,” you say. You glance down at the box, and see it’s full of those strange coins.
The boy looks to the wizard for approval, but the old man still isn’t moving a muscle. Great. This could really mess with the poor kid’s head.
You’ve got a lot to deal with here, but right now you’re thinking the first thing you should figure out is how to keep the quiet kid from panicking.
Maybe a distraction would be best? Show the kids the note. If that doesn’t work, see if you can put the kids to work helping you smash apart the wood well enough to pry one of the cell bars free.
Knock him out
