65:120 Not That Kind of Wizard by Stefon Mears

Harkin was sure he was in trouble following his previous military assignment but instead, the King rewards him with his own command of a small troop of soldiers and orders to take a single, elderly man across the border on foot into enemy territory.  Harkin is sure that this man must be a wizard of some sort to warrant this kind of order but every time he asks him for a simple spell to make the trek easier, the man simply shakes his head and says "I'm not that kind of wizard".  Who is this person and why is it so important that they get him across the border then?  Harkin is about to find out that some questions you don't really want to know the answer to.

A nice short story that definitely serves as a cautionary tale for those dealing with unknown situations.
