Tinder takes a deep breath and nods as she looks over at Broadshield, "I'm...fine. Just a bit stressed and a little too warm. Sorry, I promise I won't mess up when we get up there." She smiles at him a bit.

"We're going to be alright Tinder. As long as we stay together as a group, we'll be safe and sound." Foxtrot says as the doors close on the elevator. The unicorn presses the button for the 95th floor, the group would feel the initial force of the lift going up the first few levels of the building. All the time, relaxing elevator music plays in the background, creating a soothing, yet slightly awkward setting for the mission at hoof. "So uh... anyone know of any good places for dining around here? Not gonna lie; after this is done I'm in the mood for a really kick flank milkshake."

Pastel shakes his head. "Unfortunately not. I don't go out enough to know. However, I'm sure Monochrome would love to show you his favourite club. I would ask him, but he can be such a pain sometimes." Pastel says before returning to staring blankly at the door.

As the Directors continue their conversation, one of their security personnel knocks on the door. "Come in." Yankee shouts over.

The door opens as the guard enters and nods to the others, "Sir, we've got a note of the elevator being used and is on its way here. I've checked with my teams and confirmed its not any of us. It's stopping on the 95th floor."

Juliet picks up a small orderve and bites into it, "He's here sooner than expected. Should we just kill him when the door opens?"

"That won't be necessary." Yankee replies. He looks over to the guard, "Override the elevator and bring them to this floor. From there escort him and anyone with him to the office. As I said before we can resolve this with words." The guard nods and exits the room.
"You'll always need agents like us. To do things that most cannot."

Tinder adjusts her bag as she speaks, "I know a couple good spots that I used to eat at as a kid, I think they are still open. There is a small diner about a 10 minute walk away from here that had some of the best food, I'd be happy to show you all there after we're done here." She lowers one of the daggers down to face level and slowly sharpens the ice with her magic, wanting to make sure they are perfect.

"Oh a diner!" Foxtrot says with some excitement, his tail lightly swishing as well. "Haven't been to one in months. Ah I'd tell you all a story but we're almost at our floor. Everyone get ready." The lift slows down slightly as it nears the 95th floor; but instead of stopping, it slowly resumes past it. "Ah crap! What's going on!? Sh!t they know we're here. Weapons ready!" The unicorn pulls out his machete as the elevator slows to a stop on the 99th floor.

Broadshield chooses not to contribute to the conversation, instead, he continues to listen to the radio chatter of Equinox operations, which has gone from confidence to confusion.

"This is Combat Team Alpha. Finished sweep of levels 1 to 5, no signs of hostile a or civilians. Were there supposed to be civilians here?" One voice is heard.
"This is Combat Team Kappa. Finished sweep of levels 70 to 75, same as Alpha Team, no life at all. How do we proceed?" Another voice is heard.
"This is Combat Team Omega. Finishing sweep of levels 90 to 94, we have no visual on any pony. Something doesn't feel right..." Another voice is heard. One by one, voices are heard reporting their sweep, all of them saying that the building is devoid of any life. "You're right Omega, something definitely seems off. All units, standby for further orders." He says before turning his attention to Foxtrot, and how the plan is already gone wrong, but it wasn't his fault. Turning on his microphone he speaks to all units. "They know we're here! All combat units in the building, evacuate immediately. I repeat, evacuate! Support Team, push back the perimeter to 200 meters, Recon units, help out support!" He calls out. "This is Recon Team Pisces, have eyes on 4 individuals above building. Cannot identify. How do we proceed?"
"Do not engage Pisces, they may be with the 26. Keep an eye on them but do not engage unless they engage." He says. Turning off his microphone, he then pulls out his sword, readying himself for whatever is on the other side of the elevator doors.

"I think Monochrome will be more suited for this if we're heading straight in." Pastel said before shifting.

Monochrome leaned over to Broadshield with a smile, whispering into his ear, "Don't worry. I know about the crystal." He then straightens his body, preparing for what lies next.

Tinder looks a bit panicked as Fox says this, quickly trying to get all her ice daggers ready for throwing. She takes a few deep breaths and focuses on the elevator doors, getting ready to spring into action when they get there. Though they are almost there she takes this little opportunity to grab her pills and take a couple, not wanting the pain to strike while they are fighting.

As the elevator comes to a complete stop, there is a tense grip of suspension around the group as nothing happens for a short time. Suddenly, a chime goes off, signaling the groups arrival to their destination. The doors slide open to reveal no on the other side, rather an empty hallway only decorated with lavish paintings, crimson red carpeting, vases and various small sculptures. Foxtrot pokes his head out and looks around, not finding a single soul around to attack them. Glancing over his shoulder, he nods to the group to continue; before taking a step though, a voice is heard. "Agent 04, the Directors have been expecting you." Nearly jumping back, Foxtrot finds two security personnel standing directly ahead of him on the other side of the hallway. Their expression neutral as their thickly tinted sunglasses hide the looks in their eyes. "We will escort you and your party to them; follow us." Without really waiting for a response, they begin a slow trot down the hall to a turn further down. Foxtrot calms himself down and looks back to the others, holstering his weapon as he begins to follow them.

Monochrome lowers his weapon and starts to speak as the group is greeted by the security. "Okay, so I have to admit this is a pretty swanky pad. Lots of cool stuff. I wonder if there is a chance I could get myself one of those paintings after this is all over. Pastel keeps removing all the art I put in from our apartment." Monochrome follows the group as they continue down the corridor, rambling as he walked.

Tinder watches Fox sheath his weapon and then looks at the ice daggers that float around her, she tries to think of a way to sheath them but the only thing she can think of is to melt them. Deciding that there is no other choice she melts all the daggers that float around her, opening the clip on her bag so she can quickly grab the actual daggers if she needs to. She follows closely behind the rest, very worried about what's to come.

Ordering his soldiers to put their weapons away, Broadshield puts away his own, but making sure to keep a
flashbang grenade on hand, not telling anyone. Making sure he's ready, he follows the group while leading his own, constantly on guard should anything else happen

The security personnel arrive at a set of large, wooden double doors, each brandishing elaborate detail in craftsmanship and elaborate design. The guard on the left knocks on the door, the sound of a latch opening is heard on the other side as he pushes it open for the new arrivals. They then step aside for the group to enter, keeping an expressionless facade. Foxtrot pauses for a moment before entering, a sense of hesitation present as he enters the chamber. His torn ear flicks as he looks around the room as the Directors scan him and his group, a sense of tension gripping the air. Yankee appears the most relaxed of them all, pouring himself a round of cognac into a small glass. Lifting it up by hoof, he sips his drink and leans back on his leather seat. "Foxtrot! Haha, it's good to see you. I see you've brought friends; so brings you all here today?" The security detail exit the room, closing the door behind them.
 
Foxtrot pays them no mind, instead keeps his full attention to the other unicorn in the room. "You know damn well why we're here Yankee." He looks over the other Directors with a glare of conviction, "Under the authority of the Royal Crown, you're all under arrest f-"

"Ah yes, all of that." Yankee cuts in. Foxtrot clenches his jaw as he tries to keep his patience in check. "Look Foxtrot, this whole thing is a huge misunderstanding. Now, you've known us for a while, heck even your folks worked with us for some time. I know you're cross with us, but I'll gladly explain the situation to all of you to show our reasons. Like I told everyone sitting around this table, were all adults here; let's talk it out." Yankee levitates the bottle over to the center of the table, "Did you want a drink? This is some good stuff actually, imp-" This time Foxtrot cuts in, lifting his hoof as it glows bright. With a loud pop a blast of magic flies across the room, impacting the bottle and exploding it to pieces. Glass and alcohol flies everywhere, the other Directors getting up from their seats before stopping when Yankee lifts up his hoof to stay them "I get it. You're a bit tense, no drinks then. So... I know you and your buddies are here to arrest us, but I know even more you have questions. So since we're all here, why not ask away?" Yankee looks over to the other members of the group, "If any of you would like a drink? Anyone?"

Inside Monochrome's head, a battle was waging. On one side, Pastel was trying everything in her power to stop Monochrome from taking a drink, knowing that once Monochrome starts drinking, she'll lose any control over the body for a while. On the other hand Monochrome was fighting to reach out and grab the drink, because he has a little bit of an alcohol problem. Instead of doing anything though, he just stood there shaking, sweat dripping ferverously from his mane. Eventually giving in, Monochrome takes a step forward and smiles. "I-I'll have a drink thanks." he says shakily as he reaches out his hoof, while Pastel gives up and goes to a corner in their mind to meditate.
