Amaya watched carefully as Arin neared the ledge. The look he had given her told her just how uncertain he was about all of this. No doubt, his gaze was begging her to be prepared for when he'd jump off the ledge. She was prepared to dive after him but she wasn't as prepared as she had thought. Once at the very edge of that ledge, Arin had leaned forward and permitted himself to fall forward. The plummet that he had taken had been much faster than Amaya had anticipated.
There was no denying what Amaya said as she dived after the falling Arin who was speeding down toward the ground at a rapid rate. If she didn't move it, he would end up a pancake on the ground. Peter Pan looked down with surprise, not even registering what curse word Amaya had uttered before she dived after Arin. Right now, Peter was thinking that Arin would fly. He had confidence where Amaya and Arin did not.
Then, something happened. Right when Amaya thought that she was going to lose Arin despite her best efforts, he had slowed to a stop quite suddenly. Righting himself up, he then shot upward with a huge grin on his face. At the velocity that Amaya was going, there was no way for her to stop her momentum in time. Try as she might, Amaya ended up passing him in the air as Arin shot upward while she shot downward.
Manaign to slow herself down after a moment more, Amaya paused and looked upward before darting up after him in the air. "Hey! Don't scare me like that!" she called after him. Peter Pan was holding his sides, laughing at them before they reached where he was.
"See? Told you that you could do it. Now follow me!" Peter gestured for them to follow and flew skyward into the puffy white clouds.
