Falling

Excerpt from Daniel Everhart and the Skylands of Caterra

The ropes rip from our hands, a stream of laser shots pierce the creature from Lenny and Joost’s guns, and they disappear out of sight.

“Daniel, they’re falling!” Harrison screams.

I run and leap. Below me, Joost and Lenny race toward Caterra’s surface, ropes trailing behind them. I streamline my body to increase speed and yell, “Spread your arms and legs!” I hope they hear me.

God, please, please let them hear me.

Precious seconds pass.

I close the distance.

Dots on the ground become vehicles and houses.

I have one chance to get this right. I pray . . . and split.
