Mareth took a deep breath to clear his thoughts and to focus on the mission.

Mareth flung himself out of the door and into the sunrise over the New York City skyline, Tsarg following in behind him. The air was cold, freezing to be exact. Mareth continued his freefall until his altometer alarm went off and he pulled his primary rip cord.

Again, nothing.

 

"Oh shit."
