Anna crouched, automatically turning to face the screaming. A man was running down the path towards the exit of the park, a little girl under his arm who was screaming and kicking, obviously trying to get free.
A single glance was enough for Anna to know something was wrong, the girl looked terrified while the man looked determined as he ran, also the man and girl looked nothing alike, the girl blond and in a nice dress and shoes, the man in a dirty hoodie and tattered running shoes. The sight of a woman on the ground screaming after them “Mary!” and the girl screaming back a terrified “Mommy!” were enough for Anna to make her decision and she took off running for the man carrying the girl.
