    Bakewell carefully went down the hill after everypony else, staring nervously after Cuppa. The unicorn had voiced the feelings Bakewell herself didn’t found the courage to, and the scowl on her normally amiable face caused a deep frown to spread across the beige mare’s own features.

    When at the guards, Bakewell would try to quietly keep out of the way while the others played house with the dead bodies, though she did try to make eye contact with Cuppa once. Attempted to convey with a glance that the unicorn wasn't the only one with those feelings, begging her brown friend to not hate her for what the others were doing.

    Lightning quickly took note of the everything he could see. The ponies in the pen were obviously slaves, there was no doubt about it. And that thing around their necks were most likely collars. He could see the guards just lounging around, all of them were armed in some fashion. He thought he saw something move in one of the buildings and chances are, what he saw wasn't simply an illusion. The boss of this compound must be somewhere in one of the buildings. Along with the keys for the collars and everything.

    The next thing Lightning knew, a gunshot rang through the air and turning his scope toward Kes and the others down by the gate, he could see the two guards dead and the rest of the ponies around their bodies. What were they doing? And what is going on? The stallion just kept quiet and looked back toward the complex, trying to gauge the slavers' reaction to the gunshot.

    Upon hearing the gunshot, Dash slung his Crossbow back over his back and readied his Marksmare Carbine once again. He ignored Cuppa, it was up to her whether or not to open her eyes and see the pen over there. He stealthily trotted alongside Kestrel as they went to claim what was theirs. It seemed like forever since Dash had been able to get any significant loot from his enemies anyways. After getting what he could he began creeping back toward the group, looking back to see if the enemies were responding to the gunshot quickly.

    Cuppa had seen the slaves in the pen, but it didn't immediately condone killing everything nearby to her, as it would put the slaves in danger, what with slavers being smart enough to use their own stock as hostages. Heck, she'd seen it happen enough.

    Cuppa would gently try and open the gate with her magic, hoping it wasn't locked and trying not to make any noise as she went. "We best get through th' gate soon, ah doubt nopony is jus' gonna hear tha' shot an' not check jus' t' be safe."

    Cuppa had just caught Bakewell's glance and her expression softened slightly, if at all. It helped to know she wasn't the only one feeling that immediate violence wasn't the best idea.

    As Lightning looked through his scope, the reaction of the camp was reminiscent of a great, molten serpent slowly roiling into action. Movement was slow at first, mostly just confused glances in the direction of the gate, where an armoured pony started to head in the direction of the gate, before changing direction to direct some guards to arm themselves. Some ponies moved into the buildings as a couple more exited, mostly armed and armoured. A group of six started to form up near the base of the two-storey building. From the window, Flash spotted a glint of light from the upstairs window – a scope, he reckoned.

    However, for now, none of the slavers seemed to move directly towards the gate.

    While the compound seemed to be slowly coming to life, Kestrel dragged the corpses behind a scraggy-looking bush. It wouldn’t really hide them for long, but there weren’t many convenient options. He and Dash each grabbed the battle rifles the downed guards had been carrying. They didn’t really have the luxury of time to strip them of their armour, but searching through pockets yielded about a dozen rounds on each pony.

    Cuppa crept up to the gate, finding that it wasn’t locked. The gate was on a slight lean, so when she unlatched it, gravity did the rest; the gate swung open as if a baleful wind had decided to play a trick on her. She ducked down, getting the impression that she may have been spotted. A few alarmed shouts from the other side of the gate didn’t exactly reassure her.

    Kestrel loaded his newly acquired rifle and secured it on his pack, recollecting his previously fired bolts and reloading them, as well before he hid the bodies. He could hear the camp stirring to life already, more blood would be spilled no doubt.

    All because Kes was moving at a reckless rate of speed.

    Had Kes been in a normal mood he probably would have waited to attack and such until after all was scoped out and scouted. But his current mood, the situation, the mission, and his little secret back in Stableton had long since booted out his logic processors and left them to rot in a ditch for the time being.

    Right now Kestrel had three directives. "Kill Slavers. Save Slaves IF possible. Acquire evidence of Slaver Deaths." the orders were to be executed swiftly, and without mercy; in that PRECISE order. Screw what his actions were causing, this was not a meet and greet.

    Looking back up towards Flash's location Kestrel signed a question to him. Reaching up and outlining a collar on his neck and making explosive motions. The question was easily translated as such.

    "Do they have explosive collars on?"

    Whatever the answer was would determine what happened next.

    Kira moved as best a she could up to the gate walls being as careful as she could to stay hidden from the slavers sight as she could hear them react to the death of the guards, she was not really sure if they knew the slavers was dead but she thought they knew this already.

    There was a danger that the slavers would have explosive collars and if they had that the slave master might have a dead lock trigger then they would have to be more then careful when the fighting broke out for real.

    But maybe, just maybe if she could get up to the inner yard, get in to the slave pen and make sure the slaver did not see her. She could disarm their possible collars and set the slaves free.

    Lightning watched with a frown at the slavers, the gunshot definitely catching their attention but they were rather slow to react. If only they knew what was coming to them...But to their credit, they were getting their group together and it appeared that they were going to go search for the source of the gunshot. It was obvious that they had little to no time to react now but that time had been cut even shorter because the gate door suddenly swung open and the slavers' attention had been diverted toward the gate.

    Lightning knew instantly that the glint in the upstairs window was a sniper and that if all hell broke loose, that sniper was his first target. The stallion could see Kestrel signalling to him and he understood the message easily. Using his sniper rifle scope, Lightning flashed the message back, "Yes." He brought his scope back to the window of the sniper and waited for Kes and the others to react.

    Kestrel nodded back, holstering his Hellsing and turning and checking his sharp gaze focusing as he looked at the compound before him. "The Slaves have bomb collars. Kira keep ready, might need you to disarm them if we can't find the key." Kestrel started voice progressing slowly lower until his words came out more as a cold feral growl than truly formed things.

    "Camps on alert, we've got a few minutes maybe before they come looking or start killing the slaves. We need to secure them, kill the slavers, and then get out of here. Fast." Kestrel said counting the bodies gathering at the base of the tower to the right. Damn. That was going to be an issue.

    Looking around Kestrel pointed forward at the building resting beside the slave pens. "We need to get there. Kira Fire a grenade at the gathering group. Aim to maim or kill, get as many as you can, flash can start picking off what starts to pour out. After you shoot follow after us as quick as you can. Everyone else, get ready and charge that building on my mark."

    It was a foolish plan. A stupid plan. One that could, and most likely was going to get the slaves killed. But Kes...Kes couldn't see that right now. All he saw was an objective and a obstacle he had to get over. Right now...that obstacle happened to be a bunch of slaver scum and a lot of open ground.

    Time to rock.

    "Now!" Kestrel hissed at Kira then took off running, his Ghost armor shimmering and cloaking him in a stealth field as he bolted for the building ahead of him. Next to the Slave pens. He could only hope that this sudden shock and awe tactic worked, and that waiting for him the ramshackle building was the Slave Master himself.

    Otherwise he was not going to be walking out of this without some injuries...and a lot of innocent blood on his talons.

    (AGL 7, Silent Movement, Sneak 80 + 10 from ghost armor stealth field, Running across to the building beside the pens using Kira's grenade as a distraction, hoping not to get shot to pieces during the process, and find out who could possibly be in the building next to the pens.)

    Lightning watched as Kestrel gave him a nod in return and he turned his attention back to the camp. He wondered what the griffon was thinking. Perhaps a sneaky plan to take out the guards silently? Or maybe a way to get the slaves out without them blowing up. Or...maybe they'll run out guns blazing...

    The pegasus could honestly say that he was rather surprised at this plan. Kes was running out there and exposed himself. It was obvious that the camp knew they were there now. So Lightning did the only thing that made sense. Take out the biggest threat which was that sniper. Or whatever that glint was. Putting his two black lines over the window, Lightning gently tapped his trigger just like he was trained.

    Kira was listening to Kestrel as he explained his plan, she was not sure about this plan it out right sounded a bit crazy but she did not want to argue with the much bigger gryphon.

    She took aim with her grenade launcher looking for the largest collection of ponies that was gathering, it was a long shot but she think it would be enough to distract them even if she would become a target for the slavers. She waited for the signal from the black gryphon and as soon as she saw it she fired.

    Fomph...

    Fomph...

    Two grenades were flying in the air as the gryphoness started to move in the same direction she knew he was heading really hoping that who ever slavers was left would not fire everything they had at her after her little explosives surprise.

    Cuppa back-pedalled to try and hide herself from the slavers as they started appearing, frowning to herself now as she had realised that the gate was on enough of a lean to have opened itself, originally thinking it was some sort of mechanism that opened it when the latch was loosed.

    This plan was rather vague, it wasn't even fully thought out. The slavers could easily use those slaves as hostages and not even bother taking shots until the group gave up and walked away. It worried Cuppa sometimes that she was thankful about remembering what she knew from when she was a slave.

    But there was something more worrying... Kestrel. He just wasn't acting as measured and calm as she'd seen him act before.

    Cuppa personally didn't know much about Kestrel, but she'd heard about the elder-griffon that Kes had been seen with in the inn. Occasionally at the clinic too, now that she thought about it.
    Having never heard of Kestrel making social calls to anyone, this griffon had to be someone important, maybe to decision-affecting levels. Not to mention the complaints about the elder-griffon that the inn-keeper had over his consistent vomiting and illness as of late.

    Maybe the cold mercenary did have a heart? If so it was a very selective one, but it was a heart nonetheless.

    It was time to stop thinking about this, there were slavers right there and Kira was already sending grenades their way. Readying her .45 pistol and her .357 revolver, Cuppa tried to make herself as little a target as possible, just waiting for the grenades to do their job. Though now, after having put thought into a few things, Cuppa looked more worried than annoyed or angry.

    As Lightning began flashing his reply message to Kestrel, the glint from the window scanned back across him, and again. And as Flash looked towards the window, intending to take out the sniper, he realised he’d been seen. The fight was on. The window spiderwebbed with cracks as the Sniper started firing.

    Three flashes came from the window as the sniper fired first. One bullet thudded into the earth in front of the pegasus; however, the other two rounds penetrated through his armour and embedded themselves deep in his flesh.

    Blinking through the pain, he retaliated and fired two rounds back. Both struck home, and the sniper disappeared from the window for a moment.

    In the blink of an eye, Kestrel faded from sight, but as the huge griffon picked up speed, the stealth field enveloping him flickered and failed. The chorus of alarmed shouts from the compound gained a few more, and two of the guards started firing on him with assault rifles. He swooped sideways, avoiding one barrage, but another caught him off-guard; despite his evasive efforts, he felt several bullets bite through his armour.

    Kira started following Kes, launching a pair of grenades into the camp as she followed the racing griffon towards the building. The first landed amongst a group of unarmoured slavers, killing a couple but leaving three more screaming on the ground, badly injured from the shrapnel. The second grenade landed near the slaver guards, who were thrown to the ground.

    “Find that grenadier! Don’t let them hurt the slaves! Rocky Road, go get Silver Mist! Whiplash, protect the slaves!”

    One of the guards had gone to investigate the gate and spotted Cuppa. With only a moment’s hesitation, he charged, telekinetically wielded broadsword following at his side. Cuppa leapt sideways, managing to dodge a ruthless downward arc, but the aggressor swept the blade sideways for a pair of secondary slashes that she was unable to avoid.

    With a loud shattering of wood, Kes smashed through the dry and brittle wooden door... and landed in a small room. Two ponies working behind desks looked at the griffon in dismay, and seemed to pause in surprise at the sudden and untraditional entrance. Neither seemed to be armed or armoured. The right one seemed to be the quicker of the two; he turned to run for a door leading to another room further into the building. “Shit! Get the boss!”

    Bakewell and Dash were stunned by Kestrel’s uncharacteristically reckless manoeuvre; it took them a little while to return to their senses.

    Cuppa recoiled from the two slashes that made it through the armour Kestrel gave her, rather thankful that it was as protective as it was. Gritting her teeth slightly and lashing out at the slaver after a moment of hesitation not too similar from that of a deer in headlights, Cuppa raised her .45 and was about to fire it.

    When her horn flared and she fired an arcane bolt of pure force at him instead, using the .45 as a feint of sorts. But she would immediately follow up with two shots into the slaver with her .45.

    Bakewell had been too startled by Kes’ unorthodox plan of action to act upon it. It was a bit late to make the run now, and Cuppa was now under attack beside the gate. The unicorn’s aggressor was closer, more convenient and perhaps even more important target. While it wasn’t true to say that Bakewell cared nothing of Kes, it was undeniable that she cared more for the medical pony who had spoken to her in more than gruff and brief orders. Kestrel was a fighter, anyway. So that gave the brown unicorn priority.

    Bakewell rushed forward, charging at the aggressor as Cuppa fired upon it. The earth pony swung her forehooves, trying to catch the slaver with one of the shock enchanted weapons at the end of her limbs.

    Having been previously established that Kestrel was currently in a rather unstable state of mind, it would come as no surprise that he didn't bother stopping even after he broke down the door to the building he was now in. His body was now running on a strange form of autopilot.

    Leaping into the air Kestrel propelled himself forward towards the foolish buck that DARED to even TRY running away from him, the griffon's war-trained body shifting the appropriate muscle groups so as to put Kestrel in the perfect position to draw his Vakara and then bring it crashing down in a nigh feral cleaving motion; aimed right for the bucks neck.

    If it hit the buck would not be crying out for help anytime soon.

    Normally Kes might have stopped there, his foe being downed and the threat of 'The Boss' removed for a moment or two at least. But he didn't...he couldn't. His blood running hot the griffon was starting to give into the instincts and rage he usually kept hidden behind that impregnable wall he'd built in his head.

    A wall that was not doing its job very well at the moment.

    Kestrel, fueled by suppressed instincts and emotions, soon sent his blade singing skillfully through the air with a lethal precision once again. He struck out at the slavers head and stomach in a violently flurry of motion; aiming to brain, and gut the poor pony if necessary. Throughout it all a terrifying growl had begun building in Kestrel's throat as he tore into the equine before him before turning on his friend.

    Golden eyes, cold and empty as the Void itself, focused on the remaining slaver; drilling into him. It was quite clear that one wrong move was going to be enough motivation for the monstrous griffon to repeat what he had just done, if the slaver wanted to live, even for a few moments longer, he/she was going to need to banish all thoughts of escape of rebellion against his/her captor. If that wasn't enough the growled statement from Kestrel's throat as he began to walk ominously towards the unfortunate slaver would do so quite nicely.

    "I've got questions, you will answer them. Move and I tear you apart."

    Kira ran as fast a she could towards the building that Kestrel had just broken straight thought, she did not take this time firing at the slavers as she was now focused enough to just move and run as fast as she could while trying to stay out of the slavers line of fire by dodging any incoming fire that was thrown in her direction before she could burst into the relative safety of the house.

    Lightning bit down hard against his own teeth as he felt a couple bullets from the sniper in the window slam against his body. He couldn't believe again how he was hit again despite his attempts to remain stealthy and provide an overwatch. Either way though, the sniper had disappeared from the window and he knew that he had hit his target. The only thing though was that the stallion knew the sniper wasn't dead and he would have to keep an eye on that window if that stallion dared to peak his rifle out again.

    With no target to hit, Lightning quickly turned his attention back to the group and at the other enemies around. The group was charging in now and the grenades that went off inside was rather effective though a few were still standing. Lightning put his crosshairs right on one of the rifleponies and quickly pulled the trigger.

    Now this was odd... Although Dash was afraid of Kestrel, and for good reason. He had known the massive griffon for long enough and well enough, which honestly wasn't saying all that much, that Kestrel was generally the level-headed sneaking type. As much as Dash hated and wanted to kill slavers. Dash had long ago assured himself that he would put more thought and logic into planning out attacks on them. Well, he was out of options as it was, the sooner he got to the slave pens and killed these slavers, the sooner he could really feel accomplished about himself.

    With a dash, he followed Kira covering her approach toward the building. He aimed up at the window where the sniper had been and fired a burst towards it, hoping to suppress the sniper out of firing for a little while longer. He then went airborne and tried to reach the roof of the building, if he could get up there it'd provide an excellent tactical position as well as perhaps grant another way into the building. Though that could work both ways, it was a risk that Dash felt confident with.

    The buck that had tried to run from Kestrel didn’t make it far; unarmoured and not defending himself, the Vakara slashed through the buck’s neck, causing it to collapse in a gurgle of blood and wild, terrified eyes. The buck jerked his head, but it wasn’t enough as Kestrel stabbed into it; the body spasmed involuntarily as Kestrel’s next strike slit its belly open.

    The other pony screamed shrilly and backed up against the wall, trying to become a part of it; its hooves scrabbled at the floor in terror. “What do you want? Don’t kill me!” he shrieked. “Don’t kill me!”

    Kira dashed across the compound, drawing a barrage of fire as she raced to get through the same door as Kestrel. The chatter of automatic fire swung towards her, and she was struck by a few bullets as she raced to the opened door. She made it into the room, and could see Kestrel snarling at a cowering pony. A gutted and bloodied corpse lay near the center of the room.

    Dash covered Kira as best he could, but there was a large volume of fire coming from many directions. It was only a small comfort that the volume of fire was scattered and not focused, the sudden assault on the camp not allowing the guards time to coordinate effectively. He peppered the sniper’s window with a quick burst of fire; the sniper didn’t return. This gave him time to head to the roof of the building with a quick flare of his wings, and with a soft thud, he landed on the slightly rusty ceiling. Apart from perhaps trying to pry up the roof, there didn’t seem to be any way into the building.

    Once the sniper had disappeared from the window, Flash swung his bulky rifle towards one of the guards armed with an assault rifle. The guard was distracted and seemed to be having trouble with the weapon. He fired thrice; all three of his rounds struck the guard, penetrating his armour with ease.

    Meanwhile, Bake and Cuppa quickly teamed up on the sword-wielding buck. Cuppa struck the buck with an arcane bolt, the force knocking him to the ground, and followed up with two shots of her .45. Her first shot was hastily aimed and went high, but the second struck him along the side. Bake had run in quickly to help the medic and dove atop the buck, slamming those crackling hooves into him, each strike mashing into the buck’s armour and hitting hard.

    The slaver pushed Bake off him and swung his sword at her. Bake ducked under the first strike, but the second caught her just under the brow, splitting the skin and sending a trickle of blood down her face. It appeared more gruesome than it was. The buck staggered slightly; the wounds he’d received were starting to badly affect him.

    167/289 health

    Kestrel cocked his head to the side, holding the blade out and touching it to the bucks neck before him. Kill him? No...not yet. This little worm had use, the bird would wait for its meal.

    "I wont gut you if you answer my questions. Now these slaves have collars little pony. How do I deactivate them safely?" Kestrel asked digging the blade in a bit. A talon ed hand coming up to press against the little ponies head; gripping it tightly. "How many slavers are stationed here? Who leads you?" he asked next, pressing the blade a bit harder, talons now starting to dig into the flesh. Another question gleamed in his eyes 'how many more do I get to kill?' He was about to ask said another question when Kira entered the room, Kestrel turned just barely enough to be able to see her.

    The unsettling gleam in his eye was impossible to miss.

    He turned back quickly offering a greeting then, glaring down at the slaver in his talons. His voice was husky, feral, more a growl than anything else. "I see you made it Kira. Keep your rifle ready, we may need it soon."

    It took some time for the slaver’s mouth to move past a quiver of fear. “There’s only four explosive collars; the rest are just metal hoops. Mad Komodo has the switch to turn them off!” He began wailing as Kestrel tightened his grip. “Slavers? Slavers... Uh, it changes all the time! Fifte… Twenty? I don’t know! Oh Celestia, don’t kill me, please!” He broke down into sobs.

    Kestrel cocked his head again, this time to the opposite side of the range of motion he had. "Where is Komodo? What does he look like?" the griffon asked his thumb getting close to the poor pony's eye.

    One twitch and Kestrel would have blinded the little pony.

    The slaver tried to back his head away from Kestrel’s talon, but could only tilt his head slightly. “I don’t know! He wanders the camp. He might be in the barracks. If you have a problem with one of our products, you should talk to him! He’s a zebra, there aren’t many of them in the camp.”

    Meanwhile, outside, a light-limbed pegasus mare exited the base of the two-story building, a seemingly besotted guard in tow. With her head held high, she practically began floating her way towards the slave pen. She had no weapons or armour, just a pristine silver-grey coat, only marked by a white dove cutie-mark adorning her flank.
