The scientists jumped back as the Batarang hit the glass and shattered. Nora's body fell through the water, making some tools fall to the floor.
One of the scientists looked at me through his circular glasses. "The Nightfury!"
The other one looked at him nervously. "She'll tell the cops!"
The first scientist walked over to a table and took a revolver from one of its drawers. "I heard you lost your powers... so this just might work..."
I leaped in the air, throwing the towel in his face, forcing him to miss aim. I kicked him in the shins, and his partner tripped over a fallen-over tray.
I ran to Nora's body, breathing unevenly. I checked her pulse and heartbeat--both seemed to be fine. I heaved her over my shoulder and ran outside, getting my Bat-rope.
Another bullet missed my leg by centimeters, but I couldn't see anymore as I swung onto the rooftops and started running. When I saw the telephone booth, I jumped off the building and grabbed onto a pole, which lowered me to the ground safely.
I scrambled into the booth and dialed the secret code quickly. In a few minutes or so, the brown walls of Mount Justice appeared around us, with Robin standing anxiously before us.
I gasped and put Nora on the floor, and fell down.
"Erica!" Robin shouted, kneeling beside me.
"I'm okay," I rasped, catching my breath. "It's her... she's what Freeze is after..." I pointed at the woman lying on the ground as if she were sleeping.
Robin examined her from over me. "That's Nora Fries... she's supposed to be in Gotham Health!"
I nodded. "I found her in a laboratory with two weird-looking scientists. It looked like they were about to transfer some of her body parts."
His face was mixed up of pure horror--he obviously didn't know what to do with the unconscious body lying right next to us.
"Where's Batman?" I asked after the silence that followed.
"He's on a mission with the Justice League, and the team is investigating a disappearance somewhere in Russia."
"So it's just you and me, then," I concluded.
He smiled faintly, and helped me to my feet. Before I could do anything, he pressed his lips to mine, which helped the cold I felt in my body. I had to tiptoe a little; he was getting so tall.
When we finally let go, I ruffled his black hair. "We have to get her in a tank like the old one. Where do we go after that?"
He thought for a moment. "We're gonna need some heated diving suits."
"So it's just you and me, then."
