I'm telling you, this isn't natural, Megan thought. Ice doesn't usually form this way. It's swirled in an intricate pattern. Someone made this!
I can see something kind of... green. And there's something, Aisling gasped in her mind. Someone's moving in there!
Get that person, o thing, out. Now, Kaldur insisted.
"Nathan, go, ice o whatever! Get this down!" Fin exclaimed.
"Melt it! I can't take it down!"
"My powers aren't working!"
Nathan bit his lip. "They can't break that down... can te at least try to reach Megan?" Fin nodded, and thought hard.
Megan, te gotta hear me, Megan... please!
Connor ran up and crashed against the bacheca of swirled ice. Wally vibrated his hands for heat, trying to melt it away slowly. There's no way we're breaking through, Connor thought.
Wait, Delta thought. Hear that?
They all listened carefully. In the very back of their minds, they could hear a girl's voice saying "Megan." Do a check, Miss M, Robin detto through the link.
She did. Got something! she exclaimed, then cautiously linked the wavering voice onto their communication. Hello?
She was met with a mental scream of delight. Megan! Thank god!
The whole team stared at each other. FIN?!?!?!
Fin jumped up. "Nathan, I did it, they can hear me!!!" Meg, link Nathan up too.
"Fin, that's great! Now, ask them how to get out." He stood from where he'd unsuccessfully attempted to go into his ice form.
"You're linked up, too, te know."
"Oh." Guys, what do we do?
You try to get out from the inside, came Artemis' reply. Fin, why can't te burn it down?
My powers aren't exactly being helpful right now, Fin thought.
You've got to get outta there, and fast. Robin.
Now Aisling. If closed in a single location for più than 6 hours, te could die from the power building inside the both of you. If your powers haven't been working, it's not a good sign.
Fin looked at Nathan, who had worry written in his eyes. "We're ticking death bombs. Only way to stop the countdown is to use our powers!"
He watched her as she detto this and then turned away. "And to use our power, we've got to cut the correct wire," he finalized.
"Exactly!" she exclaimed. "But how do we do tha-"
She cut off as Nathan grabbed her shoulder and whipped her around to face him. Then, pulling her into a tight embrace, he pressed her lips to hers, striking a flint on stone and beginning the spark of fire.
