We're going to meet teenage Mulder and Scully in a new X-Files book series

Two novels will follow 15-year-old Dana Scully and 17-year-old Fox Mulder to FBI status



By James Faktor
Tuesday 23 February 2016 at 12:12PM

In a few weeks the X-Files reboot will air its final episode. Rumours of a recommission are still to be confirmed, but the truth will still be out there for fans of the show in the recently announced X-Files Origins series.

Two new books, Agent of Chaos and Devil’s Advocate, will be part of a literary series that follows Mulder and Scully as teenagers. Each of their stories will be set in the spring of 1979, a time when “serial murder, the occult, and government conspiracy were highlighted in the news.” The novels will depict life-changing events that explain how Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) became the FBI agents we know and love today.

Kami Garcia, co-author of the Beautiful Creatures and Dangerous Creatures novels and author of solo series The Legion, will write Mulder’s story in Agent of Chaos. Assassin’s Code and Dead of Night writer Jonathan Maberry will pen Scully’s story in Devil’s Advocate. Both books are set to be released by Imprint/MacMillan Children’s Publishing Group in January 2017.

“As a diehard fan of the show, the opportunity to work with incredible authors on original stories about these characters is a dream come true for me,” said Erin Stein, publisher of Imprint. “Why did Mulder become a believer? Why did Scully become a skeptic? We get to tell those stories.”

Series 11 is yet to be announced, but David Duchovny would definitely be interested in returning to the franchise. "I would love to," he told Ellen DeGeneres about the prospect of making more episodes, "I think we all would.

“Of all the things that have changed and the work that’s come in between, when we were together doing the show this time around, it just felt like the old show.”

New 'X-Files' YA Novels Follow Teenage Mulder And Scully




The recent revival of The X-Files has held fans in thrall to their love of Fox's classic 1990s sci-fi series. If you're not looking forward to the inevitable return to re-runs, I've got some news you'll want to believe in. A new pair of X-Files YA novels are on their way to a bookstore near you.

Coming in January 2017, X-Files Origins will focus on Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully as teenagers during the spring of 1979. Kami Garcia will follow a 17-year-old Mulder in Agent of Chaos, while Jonathan Maberry centers on 15-year-old Scully in Devil's Advocate.

In both novels, the protagonists "experience life-changing events that set them on the path to becoming the FBI agents" we know and love, according to Entertainment Weekly's exclusive reveal. Publisher Erin Stein says the books will answer longtime fans' burning questions: "Why did Mulder become a believer? Why did Scully become a skeptic?"

X-Files fans know that Mulder's obsession with aliens began with his 8-year-old sister's abduction in 1973. X-Files Origins: Agent of Chaos picks up six years after Samantha Mulder's disappearance, which leaves this fan wondering: what the hell happened in 1979 to further fuel Fox Mulder's pursuit of his sister's case?



Talk amongst yourselves about what all this means. We've got a few months before Agent of Chaos and Devil's Advocate hit stores in January 2017.

New 'X-Files' Young Adult Novels Will Feature Mulder and Scully as Teens

Anna Green

The most recent reboot of the classic ’90s sci-fi show The X-Files propelled paranormal detectives Mulder and Scully into the second decade of the 21st century. The next adaptation will send them back to the 1970s. According to Entertainment Weekly, Imprint/Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group plans to release at least two young adult X-Files novels set in 1979 and featuring teenage versions of the beloved detectives.

So far, few details about the two books have been released. One, entitled Agent of Chaos, will follow the adventures of 17-year-old Fox Mulder, while the other, entitled Devil’s Advocate—written by Jonathan Maberry—will follow 15-year-old Dana Scully. Gizmodo explains that the 1970s were chosen as a backdrop specifically for the decade’s history of paranoia, occultism, and government conspiracies. While there’s no information yet about the stories each novel will tell, it’s clear that Mulder and Scully will be going on their adventures separately for now.

“When I watched the pilot episode back in 1993, I became immediately obsessed with The X-Files,” Erin Stein, the publisher of Imprint, said in a statement. “As a die-hard fan of the show, the opportunity to work with incredible authors on original stories about these characters is a dream come true for me. Why did Mulder become a believer? Why did Scully become a skeptic? We get to tell those stories.”

Both books are set for a January 2017 release.

Beautiful Creatures co-author Kami Garcia pens new X-Files book
YA, as in Young Agents


Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Thu, Feb 25, 2016 at 2:26 PM

Co-author of the popular YA books, Beautiful Creatures and Dangerous Creatures, Kami Garcia, is writing a book about Agent Mulder — yes, as in, The X-Files’ Agent Mulder. The book, Agent of Chaos, is set in 1979, when Fox Mulder was 17-years-old. Don’t worry, Agent Scully gets a book too, also set in 1979. Devil’s Advocate follows 15-year-old Dana Scully and is written by Jonathan Maberry, author of novels like Assassin’s Code, Dead of Night, and Patient Zero. The books are set to publish in January 2017.


Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

“Writing an X-Files origin story about teenage Fox Mulder is a dream come true. Even the series name (The X-Files Origins) blew my mind. The only thing that makes the project cooler is that my publisher/editor Erin Stein is at the helm, and rock star YA author Jonathan Maberry is writing the other novel, about teen Scully,” says Garcia.

Garcia and Margaret Stohl, Creatures’ co-author, helped launch YALLFest in Charleston, but their ties to the Lowcountry don’t stop there. In a 2010 article with City Paper Garcia says, “Charleston is my favorite Southern city, I’ve been there a million times. We’re captivated by the strong sense of place here.”

Get an Exclusive Look at the Covers of the ‘The X-Files Origins’ Novels

The young-adult books, which dig into Mulder and Scully's teen years, will be published Jan. 3, 2017

By Michael Calia
Jul 19, 2016 8:00 am ET

Fans of “The X-Files” will have to wait an undetermined amount of time before the show returns to television, if it does at all, to learn the fate of Agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), which were so cruelly left up in the air when the series’ revival season concluded earlier this year.

But the situation isn’t all grim. Come Jan. 3, X-Philes will get a chance to dig into the pasts of their favorite paranormal investigators with two young-adult novels, both set in 1979, which will be released simultaneously by Imprint/Macmillan Children’s Publishing. “Agent of Chaos,” written by Kami Garcia (“Beautiful Creatures”), will focus on a 17-year-old Mulder, while “Devil’s Advocate,” written by Jonathan Maberry (“Rot & Ruin”), will follow a 15-year-old Scully. The covers of the novels premiere exclusively below.

Imprint publisher Erin Stein, who is also editing the books, says their stories are set in geographic locations relatively close to each other and that they’ll share some connective tissue, even if Mulder and Scully don’t officially meet until years down the road. “They won’t necessarily run into each other there, but you’ll get the sense they’re operating in the same world,” she says. Both characters will be watched by people associated with the shadowy group known as the Syndicate, as well, the editor adds.

That said, Stein, who has been re-watching the series with an eye for specific details, assures hardcore fans that the books won’t disrupt canon or negate anything that’s been set up on the TV series. In fact, Stein, Maberry and Garcia are working hard to layer in some “nitty-gritty” details that fans will savor, such as specific file numbers, character names and locations. “It certainly won’t bother anyone who’s not a fan of the show, but if you are a superfan, you will find some stuff in here,” Stein says.

Stein referred to one such “X-Files” deep cut that might pop in the books: a roadside spot in rural Maryland called Charlotte’s Diner that served as a meeting place for Scully, Mulder and their FBI boss, Walter Skinner (Mitch Pileggi), in the season 3 episode “Paper Clip.”

“It’s that level of insanity, and I’m having a lot of fun,” Stein says.

 
   
Here’s what Maberry says about how “Devil’s Advocate” explores young Scully’s faith:

“Dana Scully wants to believe. When she was a teenager she used to believe in ghosts and angels and demons. ‘Devil’s Advocate’ explores that belief and how it’s used against her in a way that threatens to destroy her life, and which will ultimately put her on the path toward true and very dangerous knowledge. This is Scully as a teenager. Hopeful, open-minded, brave and only just beginning to understand what kind of terrible evil exists in the world. I’m having a lot of wicked fun messing with her mind and also letting the readers peek behind the scenes to see that the conspiracy she and Mulder would later encounter was always at work in her life. It’s a very paranoid and deeply weird story.”

 
   
Garcia weighs in on young Mulder’s developing conspiracy obsession in “Agent of Chaos”:

“Mulder is 17 now, and he’s living with his father in Washington, DC. He’s still haunted by [his sister] Samantha’s disappearance, so when the body of a little boy is discovered, and another child goes missing, Mulder can’t ignore it. We get to watch him navigate the emotional land mines that come with being 17 – such as the strained relationship with his dad, an epic crush on his best friend, and the looming chaos of the adult world — while he pieces together clues. He will make connections between events that involve conspiracy theories and code words, jaded detectives and a serial killer, leading him to the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit, the place where ‘profiling’ and criminal investigative analysis were born — and where it’s said the term ‘serial killer’ was put into common use by [real-life] Agent Robert K. Ressler (who might make an appearance in ‘Agent of Chaos’).”

X-Files: Origins authors reveal new details on the Mulder and Scully YA novels

Before they knew each other, the agents faced ominous mysteries on their own.


The X-Files
Posted July 22 2016 — 1:30 PM EDT

“Sorry, nobody down here but the FBI’s most unwanted.”

Before Fox Mulder ever said those first words to Dana Scully in the premiere of The X-Files, the two characters had already lived through a lot of intrigue. In the new X-Files: Origins book series coming Jan. 3, we’ll finally learn about the forces that shaped Doubting Dana and Spooky Mulder when they were young.

At EW’s Con-X event at San Diego Comic-Con, authors Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures, The Lovely Reckless) and Jonathan Maberry (Rot & Ruin, Patient Zero) spoke with series editor Erin Stein about what the books will reveal about Mulder and Scully’s lives in 1979, 14 years before they started working together.

Garcia, who explores an uprooted, teenage Mulder in Agent of Chaos, says the mandate was to stay strictly within official canon while revealing “what made Mulder a believer and what made Scully a skeptic.”

“They’re so well-defined on the show, so … where do you start and how do you get to that place where they were at the start?” she says.

After this spring’s revival of the TV series, the books are aimed at getting a new generation of fans to say: I WANT TO BELIEVE. “Everybody is raving about how untapped this is for young X-Files fans,” added Maberry, who dives into teenage Scully’s spiritual side in Devil’s Advocate.

Stein, who is overseeing the books for publisher Imprint/Macmillan, says if these X-Files: Origins novels become popular, there’s potential for many more.

“It’s just the beginning of their journey,” she says. “What’s so cool about them is that these are coming of age stories. They are going through some real crazy stuff as teenagers, and we knew they did from the show, but now we see them do it. We could keep taking them up until they meet at the FBI.”



In Garcia’s Agent of Chaos, Mulder’s sister has already gone missing and his parents have split, while father Bill Mulder has moved away with his son to Washington D.C. It starts out as a fairly normal teen story.

“They’re getting a divorce, and [the State Department] has moved his father to DC for a project and Mulder has spent the school year, his senior year, in DC,” Garcia said. “He’s going to be 18 in the fall, and has to decide what he’s going to do about college. He’s got a crush on his best friend back home.”

That’s when things take a turn for the bizarre. “Basically, a kid disappears, and obviously that’s what happened to his sister and what haunted him and later sent him into the FBI,” Garcia says. “The book is playing with what you know from the show about the demons that bother Mulder.”

In another part of the country at the same time, Scully is a fairly devout 15-year-old whose life is also being upended. “They alluded in the series to the idea that Dana used to believe, and over time she lost a lot of her belief. She kept some of her Catholicism, but lost a lot of her belief in the larger world and became cynical and skeptical and moved away from spirituality to science,” Maberry says.

Devil’s Advocate also delves into a supernatural ability Scully herself possesses. “At the beginning she’s having little psychic flashes, which they alluded to in the show,” Maberry says. “Her sister is very much a post-hippie early new-ager character, and they moved to a small town, Craiger, Maryland, also referenced in the show, which has an unusually high number of kids with psychic abilities.”

This being The X-Files, there’s more happening in this town than meets the eye. “We peel back the layer and find out that’s part of the Syndicate, this is their camp to create the next generation of psychic agents – or really the first generation of psychic agents,” Maberry says.


In addition to bolstering the bizarre and sinister history of these characters, The X-Files: Origins books aim to capture some of the feeling of being a normal teenager. “One of the fun things about writing Scully at 15 is that was the age at which I changed from being a kid to understanding what an adult might mean, and understanding some of the power one has and the responsibilities one gets,” Maberry says.

And for readers who aren’t X-Files fanatics, the books don’t require deep knowledge of ten seasons of TV. “You do not have to have seen the show in order to read the books,” Garcia says. “We’ve written them in a way if you already know the characters, you will love it even more, but if you don’t, you can still read them as a good thriller and a good story.”

The X-Files: Origins - New Details About the Mulder and Scully YA Novels




X-Files Origins authors reveal how teenaged Fox Mulder got the nickname Spooky at Comic-Con.

SDCC 2016: I want to believe that Fox “Spooky” Mulder met Agent Dana Scully in the basement offices of the FBI’s odd cold case division The X-Files, but according to the new X-Files: Origins book, the two federally-funded paranormal investigators were born that way. The X-Files TV series was revived this spring.

The two X-Files young-adult novels will be set in 1979, 14 years before they teamed up. Agent of Chaos, written by Kami Garcia, will focus on a 17-year-old Fox Mulder, who is trying to explain the unexplained mysteries of Martha’s Vineyard. Devil’s Advocate, written by Jonathan Maberry, will keep an eye on 15-year-old Dana Scully, while she searches for her teacher’s killer.

The X-Files: Origins books will be drawn by Chris Fenoglio and Corin Howell.

Garcia and Maberry spoke about the upcoming books with series editor Erin Stein, who is overseeing the books for publisher Imprint/Macmillan, at EW’s Con-X event at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Garcia told the audience that the publisher mandated that the book stick to official canon and explain “what made Mulder a believer and what made Scully a skeptic.”

“They’re so well-defined on the show, so … where do you start and how do you get to that place where they were at the start?” Garcia told the assembled X-Philes.

In the Fox TV series, Dana systematically loses her faith. The teenaged Scully in the books is still devoutly religious and not yet used to questioning the mysteries of the unseen.

“They alluded in the series to the idea that Dana used to believe, and over time she lost a lot of her belief. She kept some of her Catholicism, but lost a lot of her belief in the larger world and became cynical and skeptical and moved away from spirituality to science,” Maberry told the crowd.



In Devil’s Advocate, it is revealed that Scully has more supernatural gifts than just keeping her hair too red, if you know what I mean.

“At the beginning she’s having little psychic flashes, which they alluded to in the show,” Maberry told the convened fans. “Her sister is very much a post-hippie early new-ager character, and they moved to a small town, Craiger, Maryland, also referenced in the show, which has an unusually high number of kids with psychic abilities.”

The future agent’s second sight is better than a flashlight in the dark for illuminating occult realities.

“We peel back the layer and find out that’s part of the Syndicate, this is their camp to create the next generation of psychic agents – or really the first generation of psychic agents,” Maberry told the Comic-Conventioners.

The X-Files: Origins books will focus more on teen angst than strange occurrences.

“One of the fun things about writing Scully at 15 is that was the age at which I changed from being a kid to understanding what an adult might mean, and understanding some of the power one has and the responsibilities one gets,” Maberry told the crowd.



Mulder’s sister has already mysteriously disappeared in the timeline of Agent of Chaos. In the aftermath of the loss, Bill Mulder is separated from his wife and moved to Washington DC with his son Fox.

“They’re getting a divorce, and [the State Department] has moved his father to DC for a project and Mulder has spent the school year, his senior year, in DC,” Garcia explained from the stage. “He’s going to be 18 in the fall, and has to decide what he’s going to do about college. He’s got a crush on his best friend back home.”

That’s when things start to get as strange as a Jose Chung story.

“Basically, a kid disappears, and obviously that’s what happened to his sister and what haunted him and later sent him into the FBI,” Garcia told the Conic-Coners. “The book is playing with what you know from the show about the demons that bother Mulder.”

Readers don’t have to have been regular watchers of the cult hit.

“You do not have to have seen the show in order to read the books,” Garcia told the audience. “We’ve written them in a way if you already know the characters, you will love it even more, but if you don’t, you can still read them as a good thriller and a good story.”

Stein told the audience that if the X-Files: Origins novels did well, more would follow.

“It’s just the beginning of their journey,” Stein told Comic-Conmen and women. “What’s so cool about them is that these are coming of age stories. They are going through some real crazy stuff as teenagers, and we knew they did from the show, but now we see them do it. We could keep taking them up until they meet at the FBI.”

“Everybody is raving about how untapped this is for young X-Files fans,” Maberry said.

X-Files: Origins will be available on digital platforms before it comes out in print.

The X-Files: Origins: Mulder and Scully are teens in exclusive excerpts

by Isabella Biedenharn



The X-Files

Posted October 25 2016 — 11:45 AM EDT

If the X-Files reboot left you hungry for more Mulder and Scully, do we have a treat for you: In a new pair of YA novels — coming January 3, 2017 — authors Kami Garcia and Jonathan Maberry will delve into Fox Mulder and Dana Scully’s teenage years to uncover how Mulder became such a devout believer, and what made Scully a skeptic.

EW is thrilled to exclusively reveal an excerpt from each book below. Both are set during the spring of 1979, with Maberry’s The X-Files Origins: Devil’s Advocate following Scully and Garcia’s The X-Files Origins: Agent of Chaos focusing on Mulder, as both eventual FBI agents experience life-changing events that will set them on the paths to their future careers.

Excerpt from The X-Files Origins: Devil’s Advocate by Jonathan Maberry



Scully Residence

April 3, 12:33 A.M.

Sleep was no escape.

None at all.

Deep in the night, Dana seemed to wake within a dream, knowing that she was dreaming, but afraid that this was every bit as real as the waking world. She knew that she didn’t have the lexicon to even put any of this into words that would make sense. The walls between fantasy and reality were broken, crumbling, irrelevant.

And that was terrifying.

Wasn’t that what happened when the mind fractured? Wasn’t that the definition of being insane?

The dream unfolded like a movie.

She woke in her room, but she wasn’t dressed in her pajamas. Instead she wore a dark suit that was almost masculine. Navy-blue pants and jacket, white blouse, the look softened only by the lack of a tie and a thin golden necklace from which her tiny cross hung. Her hair was stiffer, shorter, styled in a severe way she would never wear. Shoes with chunky heels.

The clothes were nothing she owned, but they fit her. She felt like she belonged in them. But when she stood up, there was something odd. A weight on her hip. Dana crossed to the mirror as she unbuttoned the jacket, and when she held the flap back, she saw the gun.

The.

Gun.

A small automatic snugged into a leather holster clipped to her belt.

“What … ?” she murmured.

Dana knew guns. Military brats always did. Her brothers and Dad took her and Melissa to the range in any town where they lived.

“You can’t touch a gun unless you’re going to be smart about it, Starbuck,” her dad said the first time they’d gone to a gun range. That was what he called her: Starbuck. And he was Ahab. It started when they’d first read Moby Dick together. A book she loved and Melissa hated. A book that created a connection with her father that Dana didn’t always feel. A connection that seemed to be interrupted way too often. Sometimes he was hard, distant, cold; and his coldness chilled her and pushed her away. But then he’d smile and there would be a secret twinkle there, as bright as the North Star, and he’d call her Starbuck and she’d call him Ahab and things would be okay.

The gun in the holster was not a model she had ever seen. She looked at the reflection of the weapon but did not touch it.

It’s not yours, said a voice inside her mind. Not yet.

Then she noticed that her reflection was wrong. Different. The face looking back at her wore the same frown she felt on her mouth, but this face was older. A woman’s face, not a girl’s. Not much older, though. Ten years? A little less. Old enough, though, to show that the years had not been easy ones. There was a rigidity to the face, a glitter of doubt and submerged anger in the eyes.

And fear.

There was real fear there, too. Hidden, compressed, repressed, shoved down, pushed back. But there.

“I’m afraid,” said her reflection. Her voice was different, too. Older, not as soft, more controlled.

“Afraid of what?” Dana asked her reflection, speaking as if this was a different person.

The reflection answered. “I’m afraid to believe.”

Dana licked her lips. “Me, too.”

The reflection looked sad, as if that was the wrong answer. “What are you afraid of?”

Dana said, “I’m afraid that God is speaking and no one is listening.”

“I know,” said the other Dana. Motes of dust swam in the air on both sides of the mirror, moving in perfect synchronicity even though the two Dana’s were so different.

The woman with her face leaned close and whispered, “He’s coming for you.”

“What? Who?”

The woman suddenly gasped and drew her gun. It was so fast, with an oiled grace that could only have been possible after years of practice. She hooked her fingers on the edge of her jacket, swept it back, released, used her thumb to pop the restraining strap, closed her fingers around the gnarled hard plastic grips, slid the weapon out, raised it, took it into a two-handed grip, held it steady with one finger laid along the trigger guard. And all so, so fast. A heartbeat and then the gun was up. Pointed at Dana … no, pointed past her.

The gun barrel was a black eye, steady and deadly, but the face behind the gun was twisted into a mask of horror.

He’s here!”

Dana spun around toward the darkness that suddenly filled her bedroom. For one heartbeat there was nothing to see.

And then he stepped out of the shadows.

A man.

The angel of light.

Devil or monster or ordinary man, she didn’t know which.

Tall, painted a cold blue by the spill of moonlight that slanted through her window. Dressed in clothes so dark it was as if he wore garments made of shadows. Wings folded behind his broad back.

But he had no face at all.

His curly black hair framed a face with high cheekbones and a strong jaw, but where there should have been eyes, a nose, and a mouth, there was nothing. Not a mask, she was sure. Nothing.

And yet she knew that he could see her. That he was smiling with the wrong kind of hungers. That he was completely aware of her—both the real her and the fantasy older version in the mirror.

The angel raised his hands, and Dana could see that he was holding up things he wanted her to see.

In his right hand he clutched several long, wickedly sharp iron nails.

In his left he held a crude mallet made of hardwood and steel.

The fingers of both hands were smeared with blood.

“Run,” whispered the older Dana. “I’ll try to hold him here. Run … run!”

Dana could not run. She couldn’t move. She could barely breathe.

The wings behind the angel’s back suddenly rustled and then they spread out, huge, broad, filling the room behind him. The moonlight showed them to her with crystal clarity. They were not the soft, beautiful feathered wings of an angel of heaven.

They were the black, leathery, mottled wings of something from the pit of hell.

Dana screamed herself awake.

Mulder Residence 6:18 P.M.

Mulder was used to ideas getting stuck in his head. Usually, they came from Star Trek episodes or books on quantum physics. A retired military conspiracy theorist was a first. But as Mulder walked back to the school parking lot to pick up his car, he couldn’t stop thinking about his conversation with the Major—and it was still on his mind as he drove to his dad’s apartment.

After listening to Gimble’s dad talk about aliens and running an imaginary black ops unit, it seemed crazy to take him seriously, but the Major had said something that made perfect sense to Mulder because he believed it, too.

There are no coincidences.

When Samantha disappeared, people on the island had called it a coincidence. As if a kidnapper just went out for a stroll that night and happened to pass Mulder’s house when he was suddenly struck by an overwhelming urge to abduct a kid?

Yeah, right.

What were the odds?

He was still thinking about it when he walked into the apartment. The television was on. For once, his father was home before him.

“Dad?” Mulder dropped his backpack in the hallway and grabbed a handful of sunflower seeds from a bag on the kitchen counter. He used to hate them and the shells his father left all over the house, and they still reminded him of birdseed. But two years ago he had started craving them out of the blue, and he’d been eating them ever since. At least they kind of made it feel like home.

“In here,” his dad called from the master bedroom.

Mulder’s dad had rented the apartment when his parents separated, which was code for getting divorced. The place was nice, but it felt more like a hotel than a home. Everything in the second-floor walk-up was brand-new—from the cassette tape player that his dad never used and the expensive toaster that never worked, to the desk in Mulder’s room that was the identical twin to the one in his room back in Chilmark (minus the Dune quotes written all over it).

Living with his dad for the school year—the “getting-to- know-each-other-better experiment,” as Mulder called it—wasn’t much different from the pre-separation status quo of ignoring each other.

When Mulder reached his dad’s room and spotted the open suitcase at the end of the bed, it reminded him of the other reason the apartment felt like a hotel. His dad was always leaving on a business trip or returning from one.

“Going somewhere?” Mulder leaned against the door frame, looking bored. If his dad didn’t care enough to spend any time with him, Mulder wasn’t going to let it bother him.

“New Mexico. It’s a quick trip. I’ll be back on Monday.” His dad didn’t look up from the shirts he was folding. “I want you to head over to Georgetown tomorrow. Spend some time on campus like we talked about. The sooner you make a decision, the better.”

Meaning the sooner Mulder made the decision his dad wanted him make. “Acceptance letters don’t come for two more weeks.” Unless, of course, your dad used his connections at the State Department to make sure that you were already accepted at the college he wanted you to attend. “I still have time to decide.”

His father tossed the shirt in his hand on the bed. “There’s nothing to decide. Kids don’t turn down acceptances to Georgetown University.”

Mulder crossed his arms. “Of course they do, or there wouldn’t be a waiting list. And I thought you were coming with me to show me ‘the lay of the land.’ What happened to playing tour guide?” His dad had never attended Georgetown, unless the campus tour counted, but he had the prospective students brochure memorized. “I’m going out of town, remember?” He gestured at the suitcase, irritated.

“Does everyone at the State Department work weekends, or just you?” Mulder sounded more bitter than usual.

“Most people don’t have my level of responsibility, and the project I’m working on is entering an important phase.” His father arranged the shirts neatly in the suitcase.

“I bet.”

“I tried to get out of going, if that makes you feel any better.” His dad almost sounded sincere. “I know you don’t understand, but what I do is important. It’s bigger than me. I’m trying to do some good in the world… .” He stared at his half-packed suitcase, and for a second, he looked miserable.

Mulder almost felt sorry for his dad, but it didn’t last. Whatever prompted this heartfelt share session couldn’t make up for the past few years. Work was always his father’s priority, even when his family was falling apart, which didn’t make any sense to Mulder. As far as he was concerned, nothing would ever be as important as his sister and finding out what had happened to her.

His dad looked up and shook off any genuine emotion he might have been feeling. “It’s not like I planned to be out of town.

“I’m not thrilled about the idea of Phoebe staying here while I’m away.”

Phoebe was arriving Sunday. They had planned the trip months ago, after he realized they had spring break at the same time.

“Why? You don’t trust me?” Mulder clenched his jaw. Based on this conversation, the answer was obvious.

His father scoffed. “Give me a break. You’re a seventeen-year-old with a stack of Playboy magazines stashed under your bed.”

“I’ll be eighteen in October. Or did you forget again?” Mulder shot back. Last year his dad had called him a day late to wish him happy birthday. “I can write it down if that will make it easier to remember.”

Instead of apologizing for being a crappy parent, Bill Mulder pulled out the big guns. “Maybe I should call Phoebe’s parents and tell them she can’t come?” He reached for the phone on the nightstand.

As much as Mulder wanted to call his father’s bluff, he knew his dad would go through with it. And knowing Phoebe, her parents probably didn’t know much about the trip. So, for once, Mulder kept his mouth shut. He couldn’t screw up his chance to see Phoebe. He missed the hell out of her.

“No smart comment?” his dad asked, reveling in the lame victory.

There’s the Bill Mulder I know. Cold, distant, and condescending.

“Just let her come.” Mulder forced out the words through grit- ted teeth. “Please.”

“Sleep on the sofa and don’t make me regret trusting you.” “No problem.” Mulder almost laughed. His dad didn’t even know basic things about him—like the fact that he already spent every night on the sofa.

Mulder retreated to the living room, turned on the TV set, and slumped on the piece of furniture in question. A little back- ground noise would drown out his dad’s annoying voice if he ended up on one of his secret phone calls that Mulder didn’t give a crap about.

Two more months until graduation, and I’m outta here.

Then he could go back to living with his mom until August, when he left for college. If he figured out where he was going by then.

A newscaster’s voice droned on in the background. Mulder wasn’t really listening until he heard the words missing girl. He jerked forward and sat on the edge of the chair, listening.

“Sarah Lowe vanished from her home just before nine o’clock last night,” the reporter said as a photo popped up in the corner of the screen. A little girl with big brown eyes and crooked dirty- blond pigtails, wearing zip-up pajamas with elephants on them, smiled back at him. She looked around the same age as Samantha when she disappeared.

Mulder’s skin went cold.
