Who Are You?

You have always felt apart, different, as though you didn't belong anywhere. You attended university, got a nice job and found a place where you could live out a mundane, ordinary existence. Somewhere deep within, you knew it couldn't last. It began with the letters from a place you never heard of, a place you felt called to you, and you left them languish, unopened and unread. Afraid of what they might contain. you had been warned to always avoid that side of the family. Then the man came, an attorney with a briefcase, a ticket, and a deed to your ancestral home. You felt a sudden release, as though you'd been holding your breath all these years, and decided to see for yourself if there really was a future for you somewhere else in a place less ordinary, a place where you might belong, a place you could call your home.

Clayton was a quiet, curious child.  He spent most of his time dreaming up scenarios that he would act out in his bedroom, a number of which had to do with invaders from outer space.  His mother Louise, encouraged this behaviour and nurtured Clayton's creative side at all times.  This was natural for her, being a teacher by trade.

Clayton's father, Reginald felt very differently about this sort of play and would often chastise Clayton about his "silly" pastimes, calling them "nonsense" and "rubbish".  But Clayton's mother would always smooth things over and make everything OK.  She was everything to Clayton.

Which was why it hit Clayton so hard when she disappeared...

Clayton's life became a terrible downward spiral.  He was affected deeply by the police interviews, by the lack of positive family contact and by the repeated trips to the somewhat questionable psychiatrist that his father forced him to time and again, mostly because Clayton became very docile under the medication that was always prescribed.  

Eventually, after being shuttled around to various doctors and private schools, Clayton wound up at university studying astronomy.  This gave him something to focus his keen intellect on, without requiring that he give up on dreaming.  Clayton's father passed away while he was away at school - heart attack - stress, they said.  Clayton doesn't know, he didn't attend the funeral.

Clayton eventually returned "home", and took a job at a nearby observatory.  But the job was high on paperwork, and low on imagination, and Clayton quickly soured on it.  When the lawyer arrived to meet with Clayton about his Uncle's passing, he was nervous, but didn't take much convincing.  When he found the antique telescope set up in the rear room of the attic, he knew he was home.

These days when he looks into the night sky, he thinks about what lies beyond.  And about his mother.

Who Are You?

My name is Carl W. Fox. I was born in 1897 under the name Karl Wilhelm Fuchs in Steglitz, Germany. My father was a teacher at the local school, my mother worked as a translator for the government in nearby Berlin. As the oldest son of wealthy parents, I enjoyed a good education which also included several languages, art history and other, obscure topics. During the Great War, a French machine gunner probably saved my life in 1915, when he caught me with a burst that shattered my hip and punctured a lung, effectively ending my military career. I carry the limp to this day. My younger brother, Otto, fell in 1918, shortly before the war ended. It broke my mother’s heart. She died two years later. With my father following her soon after and no one else to care for, I sold the estate and most belongings and went to New York to start a new life as the proprietor of a small book store, using the extensive library I inherited from my father as a starting point. I anglicized my name from Fuchs to Fox and so “Carl Fox Rare Books and Antiquities” came into being. My assistant Charlotte is taking care of the shop now most of the days, as I'm traveling a lot to acquire more interesting things to add to the collection.
