“Hold here!” I said raising my hand up. We were in the treeline opposite the cave entrance. In front of us was a massive fight between Dracos’ and Discord’s forces. Dracos’ dragon warriors seem to have red heads and claws which made them easy to separate from Discord’s dudes. Two of those big robots were in the middle of the battlefield fighting each other, one red and one purple. Soldiers all around them killing each other.
“Well at least they seem more focused on killing each other rather than us...” said Blades in a comforting tone.
“Commander...” said a strong female Russian through my ear piece. “My team is at the south entrance and holding”
“Okay, good job Tasha. Secure the area and wait for further orders” I replied.
“Yes Commander... Tasha out”
“Alright, Rainbow Dash, You’re gonna need to provide cover fire while the rest of us move for the cave” I suggested.
“What about the marine squads?” asked Twilight.
“Right, you Buckies stay here till the battle lightens up a bit. Then you take down what’s left and secure the entrance”
“You got it boss!” replied one of the pony marines.
“So we’re jus’ gonna run down the middle? Isn’ that a little dangerous?” implied Applejack.
“Well at least if we run down the middle they will be too focused on each other to care about us. I know it’s bit risky but we don’t have time to go around” I then turned to Rainbow Dash. “Alright Go!”
Rainbow Dash took flight and we all got ready to go.
“Wait! I’ll make a bubble shield around us to protect us...” Suggested Twilight.
“You sure you’re up for that?” I asked with concern.
“Yes! It will protect us from the enemy fire. I can sustain the shield so long as we don’t take too many hits”
“Alright. Do it. Now lets go! Move move move!”
We all ran out the tree line, Twilight surrounding us with a shield and the Buckies providing cover fire. Rainbow Dash was flying and providing cover fire aswell. I fell behind the others as I stopped to kill a few of the enemy dragon warriors.
I dodged the energy blade and blasted him with my assault rifle. Another energy sword came from behind so I ducked down and kicked behind me. The dragon warrior was knocked back and I turned to shoot him. After dealing with those two I turned back towards the cave and continued to run across the field. Twilight and the others had already made it and were now providing cover fire for me. I ran up towards them, a sudden robot leg nearly crushing me as the two robots roughed it out near me. I dodged and ran around it, laser fire coming from both sides as the two sides killed each other. I continued to run as I dodged all kinds of weapons fire and explosives. I made it finally and the enemy didn’t seem to take much notice.
“Alright, lets go quickly!” I suggested to the others.
We walked through the cave system to find a door. A metal double door. Dracos really did have a base here. I opened the door and we found some kind of cargo bay on the other side. We were up on a cat walk looking down over the main floor. There was a large door to the left on the ground floor. Near it we saw a tonne of Discord’s forces using a few creates for cover. To the right were two smaller doors along with a large number of creates and many of Dracos’ ‘Rebels’ shall we say. Three super soldiers and many dragon warriors all fired at the rebels. The super soldiers all had mini-guns and were walking across the floor slowly, taking absolutely no shit from the rebels. The laser fire did nothing to the super soldiers thick armour.
“We need to keep those rebels alive. They are the only thing that stand between Discord’s forces and the elements” I said as I turned to the others.
We all looked back down to see the rebels getting owned. I took out some C4 and planted it on the wires that held up this catwalk. I planned on bringing it down the the super soldiers, crushing them and making them useless.
“Alright! Down the stairs!” I whispered loudly.
We took cover behind some creates to make sure we were not seen. I waited as the super soldiers got closer to the rebels. The super soldiers walked closer and closer, not letting go of their triggers. They were right under the cat walk now so I blew the charges and the cat walk came crashing down on them. Two of them were crushed and one jumped back and fell over.
“Alright! Girls! Get to that door and try not to get seen by the rebels. Me, Blades, Liam and Russell will cover you. Once you’re in then we shall follow. Go!”
The ponies all snuck over behind the rebels and entered the door. None of the rebels noticed them as they were too focused on Discord’s forces.
“Alright, Lets move”
We did the same as the girls and snuck behind the rebels to the door. We were also unseen and managed to get through the door.
We walked through the base, avoiding the panicked guards that ran around all over the place. We eventually found Dracos in a large room that was full of boxes. There was a large space in the centre of the room where we saw Dracos. Unfortunately he was also surrounded by four dragon warriors and two super soldiers. Dracos had the element case on his back and he was was completely unarmed. Strangely, so were the super soldiers and dragon warriors that surrounded him. They all had their fists up as they prepared to fight. Dracos clearly didn’t stand a chance. Suspense was building between Dracos and the enemy soldiers. We all just stood waiting to see what would happen between them. What were the enemy afraid of?
The first super soldier made his move and threw a punch and Dracos. Dracos dodged to the right, kicked the soldier in the leg and jumped up to kick him back. All the others instantly moved in to help. The first two dragon warriors moved to attack but Dracos punch one away then elbowed the second before picking him up, throwing him into the air and kicking him towards the super soldier. A third dragon warrior moved to attack Dracos but Dracos knocked away his arm, punched him in the chest, pulled his head into his knee and kicked him away. The last dragon warrior and the second super soldier came up behind him. He blocked the super soldiers first punch and kicked him back. He then lent back to dodge the dragon warriors punch before grabbing him and throwing him into a box. The super soldier tried again to punch but Dracos grabbed his fist, twisted his arm, kicked him in the leg, spun round to elbow him and finally finishing him off by spinning back round to punch him to the ground.
“Woah!” I said in surprise. “That was impressive!”
So much for Dracos not standing a chance. The dragon warriors and the super soldiers all got back up, trying to recover from their ass whooping. Dracos just stood there and smiled smugly as he waited for them all to get back up. After a few seconds they were all back on their feet and ready to fight again. A dragon warrior moved in from the side to attack and two came from the front. Dracos swiped his leg through the legs of the dragon warriors that came from the front and ducked under the punch that came from the side. Before the dragon warrior could withdraw his fist, Dracos grabbed his wrist and launched him towards the two dragon warriors that tried to get back up, knocking all three down to the floor. A super soldier came up behind him once again. Dracos kicked back into his knee and turned round to back hand him. He then elbowed him in the face, punch him in the stomach then drop kicked him to the floor. Dracos was now on his back as the second super soldier approached him. Dracos threw his legs up and kicked the soldier in the face and jumped up on his feet. The first soldier moved to punch again but Dracos ducked below it, causing the soldier to punch the other in the face instead. Dracos then jumped up into the air and kicked both of them with his legs and knocked them both to the floor.
The four dragon warriors moved in together to try again at taking Dracos down. They all ran at him and attacked. Dracos kicked the first one back and then tripped the second. The third threw a punch but Dracos grabbed his wrist and launched the palm of his claw into the inside of the dragon warrior's elbow. The dragon warrior cried out in pain. Dracos then grabbed his head and pulled him over his shoulder. The forth dragon warrior came in to attack but dracos blocked his attack and kicked him away again. He then finished the third by kneeing him in the back of the head and punching him down.
Only three were left to face Dracos. They all moved in at once, surrounding Dracos. They all started to throw punches and kicks continuously. Dracos was countering like a professional. Blocking the first attack with his arm then countering the second with a kick. He then ducked under another punch and then blocked a punch from behind him without even looking. He then blocked another attack with his elbow before dodging another attack. He then ducked, followed by a kick and... I couldn’t keep up with him! I had never seen anyone move like that before! Dracos finally had enough. He kicked one in the leg and punched him in the chest. He then ducked under a punch throw from behind and kicked the attacker in the knee. He then kicked the third in the head and stunned him. He then picked up the dragon warrior he had punched in the chest and threw him into the other two, launching all three into a pile of small crates.
I couldn’t believe he won that fight. I couldn’t believe his moves. He was beyond amazing. The enemy soldiers were groaning in pain, even the super soldiers had had enough of Dracos.
“Alright, I’ve seen enough! Dracos!” I shouted.
Dracos move to grab a weapon.
“Don’t Move!” I said demandingly as I swiftly lifted my weapon at him. He stopped, his laser pistol on the floor just out of his reach. He was crouched and his arm was extended to grab the weapon.
“It’s over! Surrender the elements! Now!”
At that moment the super soldiers began to get up again. While I was distracted Dracos quickly made a run for it. I tried to shoot him but he got through the door before I could hit him. The super soldiers then got up and looked at us. “Girls! Kill them now!” I shouted in a slightly panicked tone.
We opened fire but the super soldier had some kind of energy shield appear in front of him. It was quite literally a shield just like from the old days except it was made of energy. The second soldier was ducked behind him. He then drew a handle of a sword. He then pushed a button on it and a massive energy blade came out of it, a lot like a light saber would. He got up and walked slowly towards us as the second super soldier disappeared behind some creates. We all started to reload as he moved close. Rainbow and Applejack lifted their weapons to shoot but he smacked them both with his shield, knocking them into some creates. Rarity and Twilight began to fire their weapons but he deflected the bullets with his shield. He then used is wrist rocket launcher to attack them. I kept forgetting that the super soldiers had those bloody things. Rarity and Twilight were blown away and were incapacitated. Me and Pinkie both opened fire on him but he knelt down and deflected our shots with his bloody shield.
“That shield is fucking over powering!” complained Liam.
Blades climbed up some creates to shoot the soldier from above but before he could shoot, the pile of creates were hit by a rocket. The second super soldier had apparently gone to get his rocket launcher back. Blades was knocked down and a load of creates came crashing down on him. The shield soldier approached the remains of my team. Liam moved to attack him with a fire extinguisher. He had actually brought this one as his main weapon. I thought it was stupid until this moment when Liam covered the soldiers visor in foam. Me and Russell moved to attack the soldier as he was wiping the foam off his visor. However, before we could a second rocket landed in the middle of our group and launched us all in different directions.
I was blown against a load of creates and landed down on the floor. I groaned and rubbed my neck. I looked up as the shield soldier approached me.
“You will die heretic...” he grunted before lifting his sword.
We all looked over towards the door where the voice came from.
The soldier lowered his sword, “Trixie...”
Both the soldiers bowed to her presence.
“You will stop this at once!” she demanded.
“Trixie! My lord! We thought you were dead!” they said in surprise.
“No! I am not. Discord betrayed me. He betrayed all of us. He never wanted to free you. He just used you for revenge! He used me! He must pay for that! Join us and let us get those elements!”
“As you wish Great and Powerful Trixie... Your word is law and it shall be done... Trixie’s Tempest Warriors live to serve you and you alone...” replied the soldiers with another bow.
“Thank you. You will prove yourself yet...”
“Bah ha ha ha! Trixie’s Tempest Warriors?!?” laughed Liam. “Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha...” Liam laughed but then looked at them for a second with a confused face. “Wait. You’re serious? Please excuse me while I laugh harder!!” Liam then spent about a minute laughing and we all just glared at him.
“Alright... I’m sorry... I’m sorry...” said Liam, trying to catch his breath after laughing so hard.
“C’mon! Lets just go. Dracos has already had a head start”
We moved through the base to find Dracos. He left a trial for us to follow so it wasn’t hard to track him. To bad his trail was made of dragon warriors. After fighting through many more dragon warriors we made it to some kind of motor pool. He was on the other side of the massive hall as he climbed into a red jeep. The jeep was of identical design to Luna’s jeeps except it was red with orange flames. It already had a gunner and driver waiting for Dracos as he approached it. He looked over to us and shouted.
“You’re too late Courage! Once I destroy these elements, nothing will stop me from taking over the universe!”
“Stop! Don’t do this...”
“Save it Human!!...” He pushed a button on a remote, and the back wall began to open up to the outside world. “It’s already over...”
The door opened slowly to reveal a massive blockade of Luna’s jeeps and troops. All the pony soldiers were lining up and taking aim behind the jeeps. All their laser sights were pointed at Dracos.
“You’re right Dracos... It is...” I said smugly.
We began to walk towards him to arrest him and take back the elements. He was frowning at us. He had that ‘I’ll Kill You’ look. As we got close he grinned evilly.
“What are you so happy about?” I asked.
“That...” he said, pointing behind us.
I turned to find a load of Discord’s troops coming from the same way we came. The three super soldiers were with them. They all aimed at us and all the laser sights from our soldiers pointed back at them. It was a huge stand off between two massive teams of soldiers. The scary thing was that we were right in the middle of it all.
“Surrender the elements!! Now!!”
“You surrender flank hole!!” yelled the pony commander as he climbed onto a jeep.
“Stand down Tempest Warriors!” shouted Trixie.
“Fuck you Trixie! You betrayed lord Discord!” replied one of the enemy super soldiers. The super soldiers on our side didn’t take kindly to their words and stepped by Trixie aggressively, preparing to retaliate.
I looked back to Dracos and he immediately punched me and jumped onto his jeep. Everyone began to open fire on each other and Me and the team hit the deck to take cover from the bullets that flew over our head. Dracos rammed through the jeep blockade and got away.
“With me quickly!” I ordered.
Me and the others got up and ran for one of Luna’s jeeps. Most of our pony soldiers had been downed so it was up to us to catch Dracos.
Liam and Russell hopped into the jeep. I looked to Twilight and the others.
“Go! We’ll stay and look after the troops! You catch Dracos!”
“Are you sure Twi?”
I nodded and jumped onto the back to man the gun.
“Punch it Liam!”
Liam started it up and drove out into the forest after Dracos. Hopefully it wasn’t too late to catch up on him.
