Seeing as the creature had broken her icy pin, she hung onto it as fiercly as she could. But it was weakening.
"No! Whatever you two are chanting, keep it up! Carlos, Osiris, you guys get the sword out of here."
She hadn't seen any weapons fire hit the thing, so those two were probably just waiting for a clear shot... which they wouldn't get as long as she and Ted were clinging to this thing like Saran wrap.
Pulling one arm back, she elbowed the creature in the head with all her strength. Sometimes you just had to do things the old fashioned way...
