Unprotected ears pop.
The strobing holographic trails continue, marking a path straight down through open air.
Eelesia is falling backwards, but when she sees Verity and Araeneve catching up, she spins into a dive. This is a much more fair contest, purely about gravity and aerodynamics. And in that at least Araeneve has her beat. Eelesia falls behind.
At about twice again the altitude of the tallest skyscraper, they fall through a screen of light. The air in front of them luminesces, like a re-entry burn, but its not hot. It doesn't burn. The drag field slows them gently from terminal velocity to a fall speed that even an unaided human could survive, as the holographic trails curve up into a gliding path to lead them toward a large balcony on the side of a skyscraper that is adorned with a big green plus sign.
Eelesia lets Verity and Araeneve touch down first, then darts down to alight beside them.
