Old City by Night
A small, pale child with bright, green eyes, dressed in comfortable clothes. She has a small scar on her forehead - just above the bridge of her nose.
Charlie Bright is a cute enough girl of about ten-years old. She dresses well, in stylish, but comfortable clothes – usually jeans and a long-sleeved pullover. Charlie sometimes wears a camouflage ball cap or a light head-scarf to hide the small scar on her forehead; but usually, she seems to pretend it’s not there.
The Bright Center for Excellence is a small congregation of “One World” believers, who adhere to the teachings of a young girl they call the “Ascended Child.” Every three or four years, the congregation chooses another child.
Charlie Bright is the latest girl to be lauded as the Ascended Child, and has only recently taken control of the Center. She rarely – if ever – leaves the center, working instead through intermediaries chosen from the congregation.
