H.S. Offices (Lauren/Connor)
« on: January 19, 2016, 10:13:36 pm »
In the 86th floor of the structure, the typical office scene is present; rows upon rows of tables lined up and equipped with typewriters, stacks of paper, and smaller supplies. Wall high windows evenly illuminate the room, providing perfect sunlight to the various ficuses dotting the halls. Larger ceiling fans provide a light breeze throughout, an immersive addition to the view of the Manehattan skyline outside. A loud pop goes off as Juliet and Romeo teleport into the spacious office; they find themselves on opposite sides of the room, a planned strategy now unfolding. The two griffons turn around and drive their talons against the window behind them, shattering the glass and letting in a furious high altitude wind. Pencils and rulers fling off onto the ground as papers near the windows fly up into the air, the deafening whistling and howling of the gale adding the to the chaos. In the center of the office, Lauren and Connor appear facing each other, the directors placed directly in their line of sight. Romeo tucks his body in and moves to a steady low crawl, blending into the light grey marble tiling of the floor. Juliet on the other hand pulls back her wings, revealing several columns of straight edge throwing knives; each tip colored red with an unknown powder. She takes aim and lines up her shot, right into Connorís back.

After regathering her thoughts, Lauren quickly noticed Juliet aiming a knife at Connor. "Watch out!" She shouted as she fired a shot directly in the direction of Juliet. She reloaded quickly and scanned the room further.

Connor ducked immediately and looked around before a ruler slapped him in the face. Gritting his teeth her drew a weapon too and scanned the room.

Juliet lets out a screech as she ducks out of the way, the round grazing her enough to remove a few feathers. Cursing under her breath, she simply falls back out of the window and takes to the skies, circling around the building. Romeo continues forward, keeping in mind where his targets fell onto the ground. Rounding a corner, the silver griffon peeks under the desks around him to find the two on his right. Talons at the ready, the Direct pounces over the desk, lashing at the two before his wings keep him in the air for two more rows of office gear.

Lauren taps Connors shoulder as the both look at the silver griffon. Everything seemed in slow motion as Connor fires two shots. Lauren let the rifle hand around her body as she pulled a dagger out and prepared to stab the griffon right in the chest when he got closer.

A round goes right through Romeo's left wing, the griffon letting out a shriek as he swipes at the dagger aimed towards his torso. His metal talons clash against the edge of the blade, three of the tips chipping off as he lands onto the floor with a crash and three desks between him and the soldiers. Juliet swoops back into the room from Lauren and Connor's right, her one wing blade fashioned with a tether on one end. She lets out a cry to her mate, plans already formed with a single line of communication. The silver griffon lays on his back and presses his hind paws against the desk next to him; with a grunt he launches it into the air over the other two towards the Fireflies. As if on queue the wing blade punctures through the wooden desktop, Juliet then yanking it hard to send the furniture flying downwards towards Lauren and Connor.

Lauren and Connor expected it at the last second and tried to dive out of the way. Lauren, owever, dived out a little late as the table slammed into her body armor but pinned her on the ground as  she slowly began to pull herself out. She definitely got the wind knocked out of her from that. Connor fired two shots in the direction of Romeo before quickly galloping towards Lauren. "I got you just hang onto me." He said as he pulled.

Romeo learned his lesson the first time and ducked down as Connor fired his shots, the rounds zipping overhead and shattering the window behind him, sending another gust of air into the office. The rush of combat spurs the griffon to take action, resorting to the same tactic as before; hurrying over to the nearest untouched desk, he clamps onto it and hurls it in Connor's direction. Meanwhile, Juliet remains low to the ground, scanning below the desks and chairs to get a clear view of her opponents. In a matter of moments she spots Lauren's bright mane and gear, a fiendish grin surfacing on her beak. Laying on her stomach, she takes a deep breath and adjusts her wings to become parallel to the floor. Wingblade loosened, she flaps her wings, sending two of them towards the earth pony's side and weapon.

Connor tired to duck but the desk nicked him sending him back. He shakes his head and tries to get up as Lauren is hit by the two blades. However, they really hit the thick part of her body armor where she kept other equipment. The blades were still lodged in her armor but she wasn't harmed.

With the two targets caught off balance, Juliet and Romeo close in to finish their prey off. The sudden rumble from the carrier crash give them pause, as if to expect something else to happen; after a brief pause, nothing happens and the two resume with their attack. Circling around the Directors line up exactly opposite of each other, eyes sharpened onto Connor and Lauren who find themselves in the middle. Suddenly, the two griffons sprint forward, quickly closing the distance to their opponents; within feet of them they pounce into the air. Romeo's talons shine brightly as they aim straight towards Connor's torso; Juliet flaps her wings once more, sending two more blades flying towards Lauren's back but also giving the pony mere seconds as it keeps her in the air, her claws reach out to slash the mare's face.

Lauren Juliet directly in the eyes once again letting the blades hit her. She pulls out her dagger and uses whatever space she has against the ground to swing it directly at Juliet's stomach.

Connor also waited until Romeo was extremely close before picking up his repeater and emptying the rest of the shots at the griffon from point blank range.

Already too close to maneuver, Romeo can only slow his approach as the rounds from Connor's rifle flew towards him. Three shots hit his leg, shoulder, and wing; it sends the Director spinning off balance, crashing into a desk. Despite the injury, the red spotted griffon still rose on three legs. Juliet's wings tilt as she attempts to dodge Lauren's dagger. It still makes contact, slicing through the base of her wing and yanking out a painful cry in the process. She manages to land a short distance away from the intruders, keeping an eye out on her partner for their next move. A chirp echoes throughout the office, both of them nodding before looking towards the windows; without any warning, they immediately lower to a low crawl and make their way towards the exit.

Connor quickly got up and took the desk off of Lauren and ran after the two enemies while reloading the repeaters. Lauren actually had her dagger as she came into view of Juliet. She whipped her head back and threw the dagger aiming right for her back.

Connor meanwhile took his crossbow out and aimed very carefully firing a shot at the back of Romeo.

A sharp cry echoes throughout the room as the silver griffon topples to the floor, Juliet becoming grazed but only slowed, not stopped. She does pause to look over her shoulder, but keeps on pressing forward as Romeo lays still on the ground. Drops of blood splatter the wooden floor beneath her as Juliet clenches her beak. The griffon's navy blue feathers fly across the office as she keeps pressing forward, knowing that she'll be escaping much more than the soldiers perusing her. She plucks her last wing blade out and holds it in her talon, a last means of defense if they try to get close.

Connor reloaded his crossbow.

Lauren fired more shots to keep pressure on the final non-hit griffon.

"Stop while you can griffon!" Lauren shouted out. "We don't have to do it this way!"
