Ernest stares at the area Narenth went toward. A while later, he hears footsteps coming and immediately hides back inside the alley. The footsteps seem to be getting louder the more he hears them. Someone walked in his sight, turned and looked directly at him. "That's not exactly the best hiding spot." he heard the person said. He's a complete stranger to the lizard. The only thing that comes close to covering his face is the shades. The lizard tense and growl at him.
The person hunkered down with a rifle over his shoulder. "Those people are getting some of those machines' attention. If there's a moment to escape, it would be now." he said. He still hears the growling from Ernest and grins in response. "Heh, I thought so. Then let me tell you something interesting." he leans forward a bit and starts whispering to the lizard.
After a moment, the lizard stops growling and stares at the person. Shortly, he crawls out of the alleyway and stands up. The person stood up as well. "Stay close." he said, then begins to lead the lizard out of the town the same way the person came in.
