She walked past them unseen. They were too busy trapped in their minds, their worst fears & terrors leaving them blind. A flick of the wrist sent the guard's keys flying to her.  Letting her unlock the door without damaging it and retrieve the shaken but unharmed little girl.

"It's alright. You're safe."  She whispered to the child without saying a word, picked her up and walked out. Leaving the little girl clutching her neck to wonder who this person was and why all the bad man were shaking & screaming. But she felt safe.

It was only later that the child would remember that the girl wore no shoes and left no footprints on the dusty, grimy floor.
