Lamp raised an eyebrow as Candy referred to him as 'lad'. It had been well, a loooooog time since anypony had called him a term usually saved for colts. He let it go however, and focused on the situation at hoof.
"The name's," The cart creaked and groaned. He wanted to tell Cane to stop pulling but he didn't. What this stallion did with his belongings was of his own accord. "The name's Lamp Light. Most call me Lamp." Then he stepped back. The whole thing was gonna go!
"Oh my Celestia!" He muttered as the cart gave out. Wood, smushed supplies, and tattered books mixed with mud. Lamp cringed and looked to Cane. "Cane?" The stallions expression was blank. Just blank. Then a smile.
"A room?" Lamp's horn began to glow softly with an orange colored light. "Yes of course! As for the mess? I you don't mind the assistance?" The orange glow surrounded the cart and the things smushed around it. Books and other possessions lifted from the muck and shed their grime. Not all of it, but since Lamp's specialties in magic involved cleaning and mending he was able to salvage a fair amount. "I won't be able to save the worst of it," He focused a bit more, his horn sparking in the process. "But at least some of it," A bag of supplies came out and was rid of mud. "Can be saved."
He was holding a fair amount of Can'es things by magic at this point. "Please, come right this way!" He trotted back towards the Honest Hearth, bearing a fair load in his levitation, as the rain began to pick up. By the time they had crossed the thresh hold and entered the cheery entry room it was pouring outside. Lamp set the salvaged goods down gently and poked his head back outside. "Looks like the rest is a wash," He raised a brow at Cane. "I'm sorry."
A fire crackled in the hearth and the room smelled of sweet smoke and polished oak. Lamp came behind the counter and used his magic to open the registry book. "Now about a room. I have a small suite open if that would be to your liking? Offered at a discount to you sir, for your..." He glanced at what had been saved from the cart collapse. "Unfortunate occurrence."
A moment passed and then he added. "Dinner will be in half an hour if you'd like to attend?"
