Uncle Marcos

The story Uncle Marcos is about a girl named Clara and her uncle’s relationship and of Uncle Marcos’s past. Clara hasn’t seen her Uncle for two years but still remembers a perfect image of her Uncle Marcos. She retained an image of him since her childhood and every time she wants to see him she would close her eyes instead of looking at the old photograph they had in the drawing room. He was buried in the middle of the courtyard in a long black coffin.
Uncle Marcos would come to his sister’s house for several months to enjoy time with his nieces and nephews, but mostly Clara is who enjoyed the most. The house became more cramped with the trunks of animals in jars which were full of solution used as a preservative also, there Indian lances and sailor’s bundles. Uncle Marcos did exercises designed to perfect the mind’s control over the body and improve the digestion system. He also did alchemy experiments that created smelly smoke and ruined pots and pans with a solid substance that stuck to the them and wouldn’t come out.
Clara started to remember when Uncle Marcos returned from one of his voyages and avoided the family’s pressure to get a job in Severo del Valle’s de law practice so Uncle Marcos bought a barrel organ and he took it to the streets in hope of seducing his Cousin Antonieta and entertain the pubic in the bargain. One night Uncle Marcos went beneath her window and tried to serenade his with the barrel organ and she didn’t know until the parrot called her full name and Uncle Marcos didn’t get reaction he hoped for.

After being rejected and having stained the family reputation, Marcos was forced to give up organ grinding and resorted to less conspicuous ways of winning his Cousin Antonieta, but he did not renounce his goal. He did not succeed because from one day to the next the young lady married a diplomat who was twenty years older than her. Afterwards he announced he would never get married and he embarked on a trip around the world. He sold his organ and gave the parrot to Clara, but Nana poisoned it with an overdose of cod-liver oil.
After he came back he came with crates that came with parts he assembled and he used a dictionary and his imagination to complete the design. The bird was such a hit that families of oligarchy forgot about the barrel organ. People soon became bored with the bird and afterwards Uncle Marcos says he is going to fly it. People thought it was miracle that it worked and rose. Clara kept looking into the sky after Uncle Marcos had become invisible. The family was sad after no word from Uncle Marcos for a week.
After they found Uncle Marcos alive they thought it was a heroic resurrection and he was again a sought-after guess in all the city’s salons, for a while at least because name was clear. Clara had learned to read from the storybooks Uncle Marcos left after he went on a trip without saying good-bye. Marcos and Clara both had prophesying powers which also made them very close to each other. People lined up to get prophesies done after the people found out what they could do.
Uncle Marcos told many stories about his adventures and had maps of his great adventures. He talked about the women of Tahiti, rice fields in China, and the white prairies of the North, where the eternal ice killed animals and men who lost their way and turning them into stone in seconds. After his latest journey Uncle Marcos died and returned in a coffin because of a mysterious African plague that turned him yellow and wrinkled as a piece of parchment. When he realized he was ill he set for home and be healed but unfortunately he didn’t make it.
