Full of refrigereated carbon dioxide, it would fit her evolving plans perfectly.Caption: Despite Smith's raising the temperature, the metal's still cool.

Caption: --They slip and fall quite comicly. Of course, she can't see this---but the clank of metal against floor, or metal against metal---tells her how well her plan worked.Caption: Sooner or later, though, they'll reach her---even if they have to climb over fallen 'sisters'. So she hefted her staff...aiming it---despite pitch blackness...guided by memory alone.
