Meet CARLY, (aka Percival’s Girl)
In Disney World, Tabbruis and Charmeine went to a bench and sat down as they watched the others walk away.
Shane, Sandra, Percival and his girl rounded the corner approaching the bench.
Tabbruis and Charmeine got up.
Charmeine noticed how strikingly beautiful the young woman was. She looked like a little like a delicate flower. Charmeine whispered to Tabbruis, “Oh my God, she is even more beautiful up close.”
Shane hollered while they were a little away, “Go ahead you two, we will be around the corner.”
Percival and his girl walked to Charmeine and Tabbruis. Percival nervously said, “Aunt Charmeine and Uncle Tabbruis, this is my friend, Miss Carly Wallace. Carly, this is my Aunt and Uncle, Charmeine and Tabbruis Hunter.” Like a gentleman, he gave a little bow to her and went to the side.
Carly put out her hand and said, “Please to meet you Ma’am and Sir.”
“Hello, Miss Wallace,” Charmeine said while she shook her hand.
Tabbruis shook her hand and said, “Pleasure to meet your acquaintance Miss Wallace.”
Tabbruis said, “Percival, come with me, I want to chat with you,” and he looked back winking at Charmeine.
Charmeine asked, “May I call you Carly?” and the young girl nodded. “Carly please sit with me for a while?”
“Yes Ma’am,” Carly replied with a smile.
As they sat down Charmeine said, “Well you are going to have to dispense with the Ma’am. I am Charmeine or Mrs. Hunter, whatever you feel comfortable with.”
“Yes, thank you Mrs. Hunter,” she answered with another big smile.
Charmeine asked, “I just wanted to talk for a moment is that okay?”
“Yes, I’m just kind of nervous, you know?” Carly responded while wringing her hands.
Charmeine touched her hand and replied, “You don’t have to be nervous. I won’t bite.”
Carly kept looking at her hand where Charmeine touched it.
Charmeine asked, “Where do you live Carly?”
“Far away, Mrs. Hunter… I live in New Jersey,” Carly replied with a lilt in her voice.
Charmeine asked, “Are you from New Jersey?”
With hurt in her eyes, she nodded.
“That bad huh?” asked Charmeine. She noticed the pain the young girl was in.

Carly nodded and looked away.
“Yeah,” Charmeine said in a soft voice, “I was in an orphanage from when I was teenager in Holbrook, Long Island.”
Stunned, Carly looked at Charmeine and said, “I’m sorry for you Mrs. Hunter.” She hung her head and said softly, “But I have been shuttled from foster home to foster home since I was nine years old.”
“Oh that must have been terrible. I never stayed in foster home, just the orphanage,” Charmeine said.
“Better for you, Mrs. Hunter… better for you,” Carly said with a far off look.
Charmeine asked, “What grade are you in high school Carly?”
Carly weakly chuckled, smiled and replied, “Wow, I know I look young but…Wow! No, I’m on Spring Break from Rutgers University in New Jersey. I’m in my sophomore year. I work fulltime and go to school fulltime.”
“Geez Louise, you look so young to have such big responsibilities,” Charmeine said.
“Yeah well, you do what you have to do, Mrs. Hunter,” Carly said. “Funny how my mind works Mrs. Hunter. Last week out of the blue, I got this insane idea to come down to Disney World in Florida. I got up this morning at 2:00 a.m., took a taxi to Newark Airport, and was in the air flying here by 3:30 a.m. I arrived in Orlando about 8:00 a.m., took a taxi from the Orlando International Airport so I could be here when the gate opened at 9:00 a.m. I gave up my fulltime pay from my shifts at work and spent every dime I had to come here! I mean here? Why? Who does that? It’s insane!”
Carly shook her head, rubbed her eyes and said in exasperation, “Oh God, I don’t know! But Mrs. Hunter when the parade is over tonight and the park closes, I’m going to take a taxi back to Orlando International Airport terminal. I have a 1:00 a.m. flight back to Newark, New Jersey. This is the most foolish thing I’ve ever done! It’s totally off the charts, wacko!”
After a moment, Carly’s blue eyes lit up with joy and said, “However, this may sound stupid, but I’m glad for doing it.” She smiled looking towards Percival and said, “Yes, the trip was worth it, Mrs. Hunter. I will have to say I wouldn’t have missed it for the world!”
“Look me in the eyes, Carly,” Charmeine commanded and asked, “Do you like Percival?”
Carly turned red with embarrassment and hung her head.
“Look me in the eyes Carly… well?” Charmeine inquired.
She very slowly moved her ice blue eyes up to meet Charmeine’s deep brown ones and replied in a meek voice, “Yes, very much so. When I met Percival, I was just drawn to him.”
“Carly, I’m very happy to hear it,” she said with a smile. “While we were standing in line at the Small World ride, did I see something come from Percival’s hand to yours?” she asked.
Carly’s eyes opened up in a panic and answered, “Oh it was nothing,” and she hid behind her hair.
It was a tactic Charmeine used when she was embarrassed or hurt and said, “That was a lie, so look me in the eyes and tell me the truth.”
“You are going to think I’m silly,” Carly said with a grimace.
Charmeine asked, “What is it Carly? Be truthful. I don’t like fishing expeditions.”
Carly turned and looked into Charmeine’s eyes and replied, “Okay you asked for it, but don’t call the men in the white coats until I’m done.”
Charmeine smiled and nodded her head.
Carly then took a big breath and said, “Look it… Mrs. Hunter, there is something special about Percival. He gives me green shocks when he touches my hand and it feels wonderful. But when you touched me before, it felt like Percival in a little way but without the sparks.”
Charmeine started to talk and Carly said, “Wait… Mrs. Hunter… do not take this the wrong way but I think… I am special.”
“How?” asked Charmeine.
Carly took a big breath and replied in a meek voice, “I have ESP.”
“Extra Sensory Perception?” asked Charmeine.

“Uh huh… Yes. Mrs. Hunter it involves the reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses. It’s like a sixth sense, gut instinct or hunch; however, it is in the extreme. ESP told me to come down here for Spring Break. I had to come here today. I didn’t… I didn’t know the reason why until…” and she sighed in delight, “…until I met Percival.”
Carly put her hand on her forehead and said, “Mrs. Hunter, I am more of a freak than that.”
She shook her head and looked into Charmeine’s eyes. She blurted out, “I have telekinesis in movement or change of physical objects. My mental force can move things… tiny as a pencil or large objects like a chair. If I concentrate, I can move bigger things. Let me show you I’m not as crazy as you probably think I am.” Carly waived her hand and lifted Charmeine’s messenger bag off the bench a few inches.
Charmeine’s eyes flew open she smiled and nodded with approval.
Carly shook her head and the bag lowered to the bench. She took a deep breath and said, “Now, you will call the nuthouse when you hear the next part.” She exhaled and said, “The weirdest thing of all Mrs. Hunter is I am totally head over heels, earnestly, deeply in love with Percival and I don’t know why!” Tears were welling in her eyes, “Percival will be out of my life in a few hours and my heart is breaking. I keep asking myself, ‘How I can love someone at first sight?’ Things like this don’t happen or if it does, it happens in a stupid bedtime story.”
“May I say something now Carly?” Charmeine asked with a big smile.
“Yes, Mrs. Hunter,” Carly replied as she was wiping away the tears in her eyes.
Charmeine smiled, put her hand on Carly’s and said, “Now, I’m going to sound crazy to you.”
Carly’s eyes went open and said, “Your hand… it feels like warmth and tingles, just like Percival but his has green sparks.”
“My dear Carly, it is because Percival and I are Light-Bearers, we are immortals who can throw lightning,” she said.
“Say what?” she replied with a stunned expression.
“Now, don’t call the men in the white coats for me either, but there is more. My husband, Tabbruis, is a Blood-Hunter; he is an immortal who lives on blood,” Charmeine said with a smile.
“My brain, my ESP, my intuition says you are telling me the truth but I can’t believe it… blood? He lives on blood?” Carly asked.
“Yes, his kind lives on blood; however, Tabbruis only drinks animal or donated blood. Also he can move super-fast, heal very fast,” she said as her eyebrows went up. Charmeine wasn’t sure Carly would take this information very well.
“That is way out there, I mean… wow!” she exclaimed.
Charmeine said, “Well, I believe you Carly. How hard is it for you to believe about our powers?”
Carly just sat with her mouth open.
Charmeine continued, “Suffice it to say, our family is made up of Blood-Hunters and Light-Bearers. We are total opposites of each other.”
Carly just nodded with an astonished look on her face.
Charmeine rubbed her belly and had a dreamy look on her face and said, “We are five couples who all live together as a family in a castle in Romania.”
Snapping her conscious back into reality, Carly said, “Uh…yes, Percival told me he lives in Romania.”
“We all love each other and I believe, at times, Castle Charmeine, the castle where we live, is the happiest place on Earth,” Charmeine said with a big smile.
“Uh huh,” Carly nodded and started muttering, “Castle… huh… Happiest place…”
“Now, Carly, do you believe me?” Charmeine asked.
Carly blinked and said, “Pardon me for coming off as creepy… but with ESP, I seem to have exceptional discernment…,” then she swallowed, “I believe you Mrs. Hunter. Really I do, for some reason. You don’t seem like you’re nuts. I thought I was the weirdest person on Earth, you know? Apparently, what I have is pretty tame.”
Tabbruis and Charmeine
Charmeine chuckled and said, “Well, I’m afraid you haven’t heard anything yet, kiddo…” She swallowed and looked at Carly intently, “I am the Queen of the Light-Bearers and Tabbruis, my husband, is my King of the Blood-Hunters. My family was given a mission from God with the sole purpose of battling Evil on Earth.”
Carly sat with her mouth open and her eyes wide with astonishment.
Charmeine smiled and said, “Yep, that’s exactly the reaction I thought I was going to get. Will you let me prove what I said to you?”
Carly nodded with her mouth still open and answered, “Ya huh.”
Tabbruis, Percival, Shane and Sandra all came around the corner and Charmeine said to them, “Well, I told Carly but… ah… let’s go somewhere we can show her our powers and she won’t thinkwe are crazy.”
Carly said with a tremble in her voice, “I just can’t believe I’m not the weird one!”
DIFFERENCES great and small
are nothing in the face of love and acceptance…
Reach out to the people different from you…
you will find we are pretty much the same!
