Repairing Scratch on Newly Refinished Floors

Hey all. I just had my floors refinished, stained, and topped with I think three coats of a semi-gloss water-based urethane two weeks ago.

I moved some stuff in on large sliders but at some point, something slipped off the slider and went across the floor. It left a scratch about four inches long.

It's not gouged out or anything but it's visible since the stain is dark making the scratch look like a white line. Is there any quick patch for something like this? Thanks!

It should be an easy fix. It will probably buff out with a damp rag. Worse case scenario use a little furniture polish or floor wax although that might make that section of the floor a little slippery.

Okay, I'll take a stab at it, thanks!
