Chapter 5: Motive

"Ulterior motive?", Hunter asked.

"Whoever convinced Red to attack us must have had a reason to do so.", Aaron said. "No one would just randomly hire pirates to attack us."

"It's because we're elementals, isn't it?", Hunter asked.

"Quite possibly.", Aaron said. "The normal humans have grown quite sour towards us since the attack on Kankakee. This would also answer why they would hire elementals to kill us. They're trying to get us to fight one another so they don't have to do any work. But remember, Hunter, this is just a theory. There's no guarantee that what I'm saying right now is even true."

[CHAPTER 5: MOTIVE]

The Orient sailed on in the dead of night. Aaron's theories got Hunter thinking. Who exactly hired Red's Pirates to attack the Orient? And what is their reasoning for wanting the elementals dead? And were they the ones responsible for the attack on Kankakee? Hunter was deep in thought as he was struck with the lights from Waurika's Eagles Stadium. He woke Aaron up as they passed over most of the town and into Flint River, where the Orient lay dormant when not making deliveries. As Aaron and Hunter went their separate ways, they both only had one thought on their mind: Why?

The next day, as they headed for work at Flint River Deliveries, Inc., they were called into Human Resources.

The imposing figure of their boss, Mr. Calhoun, sat over them as they sat slumped in their chairs.

"What the hell were you thinking?!", Mr. Calhoun shouted at them. "You let pirates attack the ship?! And worse, you cost the Jefferson District Army 200 valuable souls for your misdeeds! I have shitloads of paperwork to do, and now this! You know what?! Get out of my office! You're both fired!"

"But the delivery was successful!", Hunter said.

"None of that!", Mr. Calhoun shouted as he handed them both boxes. "I expect your desks cleaned out by the end of the day!"

"Man, this sucks.", Hunter said as he and Aaron walked out.

"Hey, it's not all bad.", Aaron said. "We now have time to train for the Tournament of the Elementals! We weren't able to make it before, but now we can!"

Hunter looked at him.

"We just got fired, and the first thing you think of is fighting?!", Hunter shouted. "How are we gonna pay for our bills and shit?!"

"We move in with my girlfriend.", Aaron said, smiling.

"No!", Hunter said. "Amy hates me!"

"You're just jealous because she went for me instead of you.", Aaron said.

"Shut up.", Hunter said angrily.
