Well, as long as she doesn't start trying to take his costume apart, Horizon doesn't much care. It's not like he's a hero, despite all the dinosaur-punching he just did to save Streak's neck.
...oh damn, he probably went flying, didn't he? Whoops. He's probably fine.
Horizon settles down to rest for a little bit, keeping an eye on Whipcord in case she tries anything funny before he moves on.
Horizon gets a good view of Whipcord disrobing further, down to nothing as her costume disintegrates, somehow absorbed into her body. Then, after about ten minutes or so of shivering, threads burst out from her skin and wraps her back up again in the full wardrobe.
It seems her power is only over her own hair...
After kicking back for a while in the decidedly more lukewarm and less nice water, Kiley takes a look around and figures nobody will miss her while Jennifer's otherwise occupied. Might as well take another look at that warmer cave. Checking that nobody's looking and that there's still plenty of time in the outing, she dives under and heads right back for the other pool.
Back at the other pool, Kiley, this time without the encumbrance of a nosy Jennifer, soon approaches the source of the heat. Physically painful enough to eventually kill her, but without radiant force, Kiley's blurring intensifies as the water nears boiling, before she spots the culprit by the heat and the tiny but cherry red glow: A glass mechanism drifting in the water, dimly glowing red from the heat. It's shaped like a heap of stacked donuts and emanating boiling water, causing it to move in an irregular orbit.
