It started off normal enough, but as we got in deeper, the whole situation just got a lot harder. I'd rush in first, pounding the opposition, then I'd switch out and my friend would finish the job. We took turns doing that for about half an hour (yes, this was a long one). About half way through, my friend got a phone call and left me alone to carry on the mission.
This was when I learned why they called Cortana "Legendary".
I found myself pinned down immediately. I tried to fire a shot off, but every time I tried I was forced to switch up my tactics and take up a new position, causing me to miss several opportunities. This went on well over fifteen minutes before I decided I'd had enough. Forcefully, I took hold of the situation and proceeded to open up a can of whoop-ass. The garbled moans and cries reached my ears as swiftly as I could make them happen. And it was good. I pressed harder, tearing up whatever got in my way, but it wasn't long before I found myself pinned down again. Trapped, exhausted, defeated.
But then, salvation! My friend's phone call had ended and he leapt into battle, delivering his unique brand of justice to that which had nearly finished me off. With the gap I had made from my previous endeavor, we increased our pace as fast as we could go, and boy, did we ever finish that fight!
So, with Cortana under my belt and a smile on my face, me and my friend left Cortana behind and never looked back.
