Love makes you do amazing things.  Amber thought, as her jacket got caught on a piece of the broken window frame mid-leap.  It only snagged for a second before the piece came loose and she continued through the air with slightly less momentum.

That was enough.

In what seemed like an hour, Amber came crashing down to the earth.  She hit her head on the lip of the dumpster, ricocheted into the alleyway's brick wall, and finally completed her fall - cascading into an arrangement of garbage cans, to a sickening crack in her leg.

"Amber!"  She could hear Twitch scream.

Then it went dark.

The End
