Jabbing the Glaive into the ground, you step foward, and in the "gentlest" voice you can manage, try and get calm the girl. But despite your efforts, you still hear a little squeak of shock when you start speaking.
>"LITTLE ONE, I MEAN NO HARM. PLEASE STEP OUT OF THERE."
Silence followed by an accusation. "YOU are the reason all the screaming happened happened earlier aren't you?"
You don't see the reason in lying to the child, if she hates you for the time being, that is fine, you can just force her out.
>"YOU NEED TO COME OUT OF THERE NOW. THE FIRE GOD IS COMING TO THE GROUND."
A few sniffles and the door slowly swings open, revealing a girl with the same green eyes and brown skin the others had, you aren't sure how old she would have been, but she is about the size of the others, yet only comes up to just below your stomach. Maybe you are just massive compared to this race.
She starts in awe at the armored knight come to take her away, she must had read fairytales like this at one point where the knight in shining armor would come whisk the princess away, at least thats the stories you had raised your own daughter on.
Holding out a hand, you pull your cloak out a ways, beckoning to her.
Reluctantly she grabs your armored hand, and you effortlessly toss her into your cloak, again with a squeak. Turning and running towards the window at the opposite side of the room.
>"STAY PUT. YOU WILL BE SAFE THERE."
Dashing, you fly through the window into the mists below. Going by the ever increasing glow, the king had begun to fall, and so chucks of the stone tower were falling all around you.
With a quick burst of flame manipulation, you land as lightly as someone the size of you can land, and sprint to the galloping Mercy. Hooking a foot in the reins, you hop unto the back of the beast, and surpass the crashing speed of sound, willing Mercy forward with all the strength you could muster.
