Fin's face was filled with an expression of such pure wrath and fury that I was scared she was going to strangle Бэтмен on the spot. "He's GONE?"
Without warning, her hands ignited in a burning flame. I had learned by now that the огонь didn't harm her and wouldn't harm us, either, but it was still startling.
"How's he missing? How? Why?" Wally sputtered, his voice echoeing everyone's feelings. "Right then," сказал(-а) Megan, who somehow had remained calm amidst the chaos that had ensued. "To the bioship?"
They all started to go towards the hangar. I began to sink back down on the couch, knowing that I would be staying behind as always, when Artemis spoke up. "Hey, uh, Batman?"
Бэтмен turned to face her. Artemis began to speak again, and what she сказал(-а) was probably the last thing I would ever expect to be coming out of her mouth.
"Do Ты think Aisling could come too, just this once?"
This was turning out to be such a weird day. First Robin went missing, then Artemis--Artemis, of all people--suggested that I Присоединиться the mission to rescue him. Artemis had always been the most opposed to my joining the team, so hearing those words come out of her mouth was completely unexpected. There's gotta be a reason, I thought. I knew Бэтмен wouldn't fall for it, though, whatever it was that Artemis was planning. But to my surprise, he nodded.
"You can fly, right?" he asked me, in the same gruff tone. I nodded silently. I couldn't fly particularly well though, and I had been hoping to travel in the safety of the bioship.
"Go find Infinity, then," he continued. "Try to calm her down a little." I nodded again, and went into the main room, where I had seen Fin go earlier.
Upon hearing my footsteps, she scrambled to her feet, changing into her shimmering costume: Золото minidress, high boots, dark cape, thin mask, with a flick of her hand. Like Megan, she could change her appearance as well. "Fin?" I asked cautiously.
"Mmm?" she mumbled.
"I'm coming too." She stayed expressionless for a second, then her mouth трещина, сплит into a wide grin.
"Yes!" she cried. "Your first mission! Do Ты want me to change you?"
I nodded, and with another sweep of her hand, I was transformed into my costume, purple and green bodysuit, black cape, combat boots. "Thanks," I muttered. "Apparently I'm supposed to fly with you."
She nodded wordlessly. She seemed slightly taken aback that I wasn't traveling in the bioship, but she didn't say anything. Finally she broke the silence. "To the zeta tubes, then?"
We headed back over towards the entrance to the cave. Fin stepped forward.
Recognized. Infinity. B08.
Once she had disappeared, I stepped into the light.
Recognized. Tiger Storm. B09.
