Walter was severely outmatched. This dumb weapon in his hand would be useful if the bullets could actually reach his target before they teleport away. However, he kept firing at Yankee and kept the pressure up. Eventually, a smile crept onto his face as suddenly one the unit carriers similar to the one he was riding on earlier leveled with his floor. It was still cloaked as suddenly a cannon shot fired from it aimed at Yankee.

The rounds from Walter's rifle buzz past Yankee, a stray bullet ricochets against his longsword, knocking it out of his hoofs as a second one punctures through his foreleg to generate a slur of curses from him. A glow of green magic encompasses the unicorn as his hooves and horn glow brighter; he lifts his hoof towards him before a loud boom is heard. In a blur the Director is sent flying back right into and through the wall. A large hole is seen, several bricks and drywall falling to the floor as the dust settles in the room.

Foxtrot steps back several paces before looking up with shock, his eyes widening when he discovers the sudden hole in the wall. "What the F@#$!? What was that!?" The unicorn looks over to Walter, then out to the window, "What just happened!?" Taking a few steps towards the destruction in the office, he nearly loses the grip on his weapon before snapping back to reality. "I needed him alive you bastard! Was that a cannon!? Where did a-" Foxtrot's rage is suddenly smothered when he sees a glow on the other side of the wall. "Oh sh!t..." Before he can say another word, a blast of green energy impacts the unicorn and sends him flying across the room, landing just feet away from the wall high windows. Hoofsteps can be heard from the darkness as Yankee emerges, still covered in his green aura; in his hoof is a glowing cannon ball. Lifting it up, he engulfs the projectile in magic before firing it in the direction it originally came from. His appearance is tattered, small burns and scrapes only appear after the vicious assault.

The cannon fired again after seeing Yankee step out. However, the one that Yankee launched had a direct hit. The unit carrier appeared as the two pegasi pulling it attempted to keep it in the air. The team in the back was engulfed in flames as the carrier began to fall and smash into the floor below Walter making a loud bang and crash.

The SEAL looked in disbelief before emptying the rest of the rounds in his repeater at Yankee before ducking down and reloading.

The second cannon ball crashes through the right wall, revealing a hole into another room filled with equipment and weapons. The Director looks over to Walter as rounds either fly past him or ricochet from the magical aura he radiates. He begins to show some exhaustion though, prompting him to take more direct measures. After the last round passes him, Yankee drops his shielding and sprints towards the SEAL. As soon as he approaches the cover he's hiding behind, the unicorn spins around and kicks it towards him, his back hooves glowing with magic.

As Yankee begins his attack on the other soldier in the room, the agent gets back up and looks around; an undamaged bottle of chardonnay catching his attention. Lifting his hoof towards it he levitates over, grasping it out of the air before aiming it at the Director. Leading his target, the unicorn fires the bottle towards him; it bashes into his shoulder and sends him reeling back towards the wall.

Walter counters the kick and at least dodges it to move out of the way when suddenly seeing the director fly towards the wall. Walt resumes reloading his repeater before slinging it back on his back and pulling out the crossbow. For now it seemed like Foxtrot wasn't targeting him so no need to make this a 2 against him especially with these magic hooves they seem to have.

As the bottle bounces back into the air it's suddenly halted by a green aura; it lowers down to the unicorn who aims the chardonnay at Walter, sending it flying towards him. The Director then charges towards the agent; Foxtrot's fatigue from the fight and magic usage beginning to show. Instead of using blasts and shields, the two engage in hoof to hoof combat; parrys, jabs and kicks fly between them as they counter each other's moves. Yankee blocks one of Foxtrot's swipes; instead of attacking, he pushes his hoofs against his opponent. Foxtrot recovers after a few steps back; but before he can retaliate, he's assaulted by a flurry of magical beams from point blank range. His armor and fur start to burn from smaller impacts and grazing; once Yankee stuns him, his two front hooves glow brightly, the Director firing a larger blast right into Fox's torso and sending him flying into the wall next to the inventory room.

Foxtrot's vision begins to blur, his head aching with pain as blood trickles down his forehead. The soreness in his legs echo across his body as he tries to get up, profusely coughing from the impacts to his rib cage. He looks over his shoulder to find the inventory room, on the wall he spots rows of what appears to be parachutes. Below them are tables of armaments and armor as well as various equipment. Not being able to locate his own weapon, he crawls on his stomach towards the room. "Hey! Can you hold his attention! I gotta grab something!"

Walter didn't need to take that from Fox to take very careful aim and fire the crossbow at Yankee before switching back to his repeater to eep up the pressure.

Yankee finds Foxtrot scrambling towards the supply room, the stray bolt from Walter drawing the Director towards the nuisance. The unicorn's eyes glow as he slowly walks towards him; with each shot that Walter fires, Yankee teleports even closer to him. Within mere moments the two stare down, Yankee keeping his glowing hoof pointed right at Walter. "You, heh. You and your team I would have loved to converse with. Such promise, but..." A flash of light fills Walter's vision as he pops out of the chamber and emerges far out of the building into the middle of the Manehattan skyline, nothing to stop him from falling to the streets a hundred stories below.

Foxtrot sprints along the shining wooden floors of the supply room, grabbing whatever he can get his hooves on. The resounding gunfire beckons him to the hole he jumped through to get there, peering out just in time to find Yankee teleport Walter right out into the sky. "OH SH!T!" Scooping up a backpack, he sprints towards Yankee and tackles him off the building, letting him go and diving to Walter. The surge of air blasts through his mane as his tail flutters among the gusts on wind swirling between the towering spires of the metropolis. Tucking his body in, he speeds into the soldier, catching him with his hooves and immediately pulling the chord on his pack. In an instant a set of canvas wings springs out, yanking the two straight up along the skyscraper as Yankee plummets down before teleporting out of sight. As the two climb in altitude, another Director comes into view. "Hey! Over there! I'll get up close and you knock em out of the sky!" Foxtrot clips a lanyard onto the earth pony's harness to keep him attached. Now secure, he pulls on two separate chords found by his shoulders, maneuvering them through the blue yonder until they line up behind Juliet. "Target in sight!"

Walter didn't even have time to realize that he was outside before Fox came into save him.
He nodded at Fox's order as he aimed his Repeater carefully before firing two rounds.

Juliet never saw it coming as the two rounds puncture her right wing and hind quarters. The griffon let's out a cry of pain as she swerved out of the sky, crashing back into the building several floors beneath Lauren and Connor. The Director lays unconscious in the offices, strewn onto a bloody desk.

Foxtrot tilts his makeshift wings upward, using the wind to lift the two up along the building. It wasn't long before they soar high above the ceiling; Yankee is seen standing there with sword in hoof waiting for them. Raising his hoof he leads his target and fires; several shots whiz by but a few make contact, impacting the canvas wings and tearing them apart. The two spiral out of control towards the building, Foxtrot stabilizing in just enough to unlatch Walter for a safe landing. The unicorn's own descent didn't get better though, Foxtrot himself crashing onto the roof a short distance away from the Director. Yankee nears the agent as he tries to take off the pack, the Director firing a few magical shots into the unicorn and knocking him on his back. "I'm disappointed Fox. You could've killed me if you just let him go. Oh well, I'll make sure you don't make the same mistake twice."
