A Voice From The Stars
Alex Maxwell is walking home from school on a rainy afternoon when he disappears. His foster father says that he simply never made it home, when his backpack is found by the river, everyone assumes the worst.
The truth is that Alex is alive, and he’s been reunited with his birth father. Whether he wanted to be or not.
“We’re not going to hurt you, or do anything bad. We’re just–” Ryan sighs and puts a hand over his mouth, like he’s thinking, or trying to hold something in. He takes a deep breath. “I know you’re scared,” he says finally, “and confused. I–I don’t really know how to say this.” he laughs, a little self deprecatingly. “I practiced it a thousand times, but now that the moment is here…”
Alex has no fucking clue what that’s supposed to mean, but he doesn’t think its anything good. Why did Ryan practice saying something to him a thousand times? Alex already knows that he was fucking–stalking him or something. His dinner sits in a hard lump in his stomach. He swallows forcefully to keep it down.
“My last name is Case,” Ryan says.
Ryan sighs and runs a hand over his face. “I’m sorry. Let me try again. You–Do you know how long you’ve been in foster care?”
“All my life,” Alex says warily.
“Not all of it,” Ryan says in a choked whisper. “You were taken when you were two months old. You–Your last name is Case, too, Alex.”A Voice From the Stars
