Who: Charlie McGee and Kael’thas What: First meeting in person regarding Charlie’s control over fire Where: Kael and Jennifer’s place When: Present day, later on in the day
Arriving in Lawrence Kansas had been a jarring enough situation for Charlie standing on its own. She had never even dreamed up such a situation in her imagination. What had surprised her even more, though, was finding other people who seemed to have some sort of control over fire. There were plenty of people back in her home who had supernatural abilities. Her father had been quite talented with mind control thanks to the Lot Six experiments he had been a part of. It was exciting to hear of Kael’thas and upon learning about his special talent Charlie was dying to meet and talk to him. She had her fingers crossed that he might be able to help her control her own ability.
Charlie never put a whole lot of effort into her appearance except for the few times she had applied for jobs. She treated this as if it was one of those interviews. Charlie dressed herself in a way she imagined was appropriate for the meeting, donning her nicer looking jeans and an unwrinkled shirt. She brushed the knots out of her hair and fixed it into a ponytail.
She ran the address Kael had given her through MapQuest since she still didn’t know her way around the city very well, and folded the printed out instructions, tucking them into her pocket so that she could reference them once she was on her way. After mere seconds spent waiting for the elevator, Charlie decided to take the stairs for speed’s sake. Truth be told, she was a little keyed up over everything. It was exciting to find someone with somewhat similar talents after years spent feeling like an outcast of sorts.
Following her directions, Charlie eventually found herself at the address that was given to her. She gave the door a few polite knocks and waited as patiently as she could manage.
