The Scare & Scurry Scottish Sanctuary

…Continued From Mystic Unsolved Mysteries: Case Of The Scare & Scurry

magic-schoolAfter the enigmatic entity of evil eluded the enhanced senses, and powers of those who are paranormal in our group, we headed to a supernatural sanctuary in Scotland on a private jet. We looked toward the McTavish International Academy Of Magical Sciences as a hidden haven, and a testing ground to see if this amazing abomination would be able to find us.  A pathetic person who hellishly harassed the elderly Elmer, and Gertrude Carpmeister for the past 23 years through a systematic hit, and run style of terror. The only clue for the motive behind this insanity was ascertained by our Psychic Julia Hathaway who had a vision that the culprit knew the couple very early on in his life.

The World Of Supernatural Magic Is Revealed!

We arrived in Scotland in the late afternoon and found ourselves walking out of the woods into an open field along the picturesque countryside of the infamous Loch Ness.  The autumn colors had just begun blooming under the partly sunny skies with temperatures in the 50’s Fahrenheit.  Elmer and Gertrude were quite excited by their first vacation abroad as Elmer photographed the hell out of everything in sight.  Gertrude remarked, “Oh there’s no way our stalker will ever find us here!  Xavier where’s this University we’re staying at?”  Now the fun part where we reveal the world of the supernatural to someone for the first time.  I replied, “The truth is it’s right in front of us, and it’s actually a University of supernatural magic.”  Rebecca then interjected,” As a former student of the McTavish International Academy Of Magical Sciences I can see the school grounds despite it being magically cloaked to the rest of you.  However, I must present the original invitation that invited me to join these hallowed halls when I was just a young teen.”  Elmer and Gertrude looked at us as if we were nuttier than a loon. Drake Alexander then said, “Surely you realize there’s something not natural about your stalker eluding everyone including multiple law enforcement agencies, and not being captured on any camera?  Our world is very much supernatural in nature, and I’m a 744-year-old vampire.”  Julia Hathaway then chimed in, “I’m not only a Psychic but also possesses telekinetic powers.  Also, Rebecca is a Demi-Mermaid, and a witch.”  Ashley also shared her identity with the now clearly disbelieving couple, “I’m a Demi-Zombie, and my boyfriend Seth is a Werewolf.”  Zack Powers calling in sick at high school exclaimed, “I used to be a quadriplegic but now I’m a superpowered cyborg with bionic limbs!”

Elmer and his wife looked a bit scared as he replied, “Okay I admit our stalker is beyond puzzling but there’s always a logical explanation to everything.  I’m not sure what drugs you kooks are on but I think we’ll just go ahead, and get a hotel room in town.”  Rebecca then held up what appeared to be a greeting card that magically shimmered all the colors of the rainbow in the sunlight as she bellowed, “McTavish! Oh, McTavish! I call unto thee as your alumni. I implore you to reveal thy hallowed halls unto me, and all in my presence. Let that which acts non-corporeal manifest onto the shores of this lovely Loch!”  Suddenly a huge white medieval castle manifested along with a variety of matching buildings amid the sprawling grounds of the magic school surrounded by a narrow stream which was, in essence, the moat for the castle in front of us.  Elmer and Gertrude simultaneously gasped, and said, “Holy Sh*t!”  We all walked across the drawbridge over the moat teeming with paranormal aquatic life including a glowing blue fish with a Unicorn horn that leaped out of the water, and back in again.  Once inside the castle, there were several students, and an occasional professor in various colored robes bustling about.  A short old lady scurried up and hugged Rebecca.  “Oh sweetheart it’s good to see you again!”  Rebecca replied, “Professor Extrocious looking beautiful as ever!”  The Professor then said, “Headmaster McTavish is quite busy at the moment but he’ll dine with you later.  I’ll show you to your rooms.  As we strolled about the mystical halls of the most powerful magic school on Earth run by the most powerful Sorcerer on Earth, Headmaster Ian McTavish, the Carpmeister’s were awestruck by everything they witnessed. Elmer muttered to Gertrude, “I can’t believe this! It’s like being in a Harry Potter movie!  Is Harry Potter real?”  I replied, “Ah no….well at least not in this particular Universe.”

 

The Surreal Magic School

The school was decked out with Halloween decor that included glowing Jack-O-Lanterns strewn about.  Some of which were floating in mid-air. There were a plethora of paranormal sights to catch the eye.  Kids levitating in the halls and walking through the walls along with seemingly Magic School Potions Classfriendly specters.  We nearly got run down by three students on a magic carpet claiming they were late for Genie summoning class.  Before exiting into a large courtyard area we caught a glimpse of a potions class in progress.  A large lab table was full of liquids glowing brightly with all manner of colors that brewed forth eerie vapors.  A student dumped a green liquid over the head of the kid next to him, and she turned into a toad.  Everyone laughed except for the Professor who sternly said, “Gerald you’re supposed to use the rabbit sitting in front of you!  Not your fellow students!” The Professor promptly dumped some pink liquid over the toad and it turned back into a student.

Mystical UnicornOnce outside again there was a circular water fountain where a small Leprechaun was reaching in to fish out gold coins, and putting him in his pot.  He cheerfully exclaimed, “Top o’ the morning to you!”  We then walked through an expanse of the castle that was more like a tunnel before exiting the greater grounds of the sprawling school.  At the center was a large pond with a waterfall, and water fountain spraying in the center. Around it many majestic white swans floating about gracefully along with some ducks. As I walked past a titanic turtle popped his head up, and actually uttered a sentence, “Duh which way did they go? Duh!”  All I could say was, “Oh my God!” Three Unicorns ran past while gazing upon us peacefully.  A small flock of tiny multicolored canaries flew past leaving an iridescent glitter trail in mid-air. Not too far behind them were some small fairies fluttering about while sprinkling fairy dust in their wake. We headed down a trail of crystal pebbles to the gray castle that houses Headmaster McTavish, various professors, and distinguished guests. Professor Extrocious showed us to our guest quarters right next to Ian McTavish’s living quarters.

Loch NessieWe were unpacking, and settling in when Rebecca yelled, “Hello Nessie! I’m back girl!”  The Loch Ness Monster, the magic schools mascot, swam up head above the water making a unique noise that sounded like a cross between a whale call, and an Elephant roar.  Rebecca promptly stripped down to nothing and leaped out the third-floor castle window down to the shore. Then into the Loch she dove atop Nessie.  Some male students nearby were yelling,”OMG! Yeah!”  What’s odd is that she wasn’t actually naked. There was rainbow colored glitter over key body parts.  I found out later it’s one of the magical spells on the school.  A spell that censors public nudity for the protection of the students.  Clearly, Rebecca knew that when she jumped out the window.  The number one spell cast over the magic school by the immortal Sorcerer McTavish himself is the protection spell that prevents harm from coming to anyone within its walls which is why I wanted to come here.  Lets not only see Elmer, and Gertrude’s stalker find this impossible to find invisible paranormal place but then penetrate the magical walls along with defeating the hundreds of magic-wielding people within! As far as I’m concerned this is the safest place on Earth second only to Demi-Angel Saint Nicholas’s North Pole City. I chose not to go there simply because I didn’t want to bring a violent danger to a place of happy peace amid innocent children and elves! At the magic school, students are training to take on the threats of the paranormal world!

Dinner With A Sorcerer In A Great Hall Of Magicians

Later after nightfall, we all sat around an impossibly long smooth black marble table that looked like it could easily be the length of a football field.  We were near the head of it with at least a few hundred others sitting down almost out of sight at the end of the table.  As the scrumptious appetizers were being served a whinnying horse echoed through the large dining hall lit by a combination of candles, torches, and mysterious orbing lights floating about the ceiling. The distinctive clip-clopping could be heard getting closer.  It was Ian McTavish riding up on his faithful Pegasus Pepper.  He leaped off the paranormal steed with his green cape, and crimson shoulder-length hair flowing behind him. The great white winged horse then promptly flew away through an open skylight high above.  We all stood up as he hugged Rebecca, “Glorious to see you again my dear!”  He greeted all of us individually as well since we’ve been here a handful of times before.  He also reassured Elmer, and Gertrude by lowering his voice and saying, “Don’t worry folks. We’ll get the bastard behind the atrocities against you!”

As usual, he made a point of giving one of his trademark iron vice handshakes, and quantum shock-wave back pats to fellow Scotsman Drake Alexander.  We’re pretty sure he does this because his large ego won’t allow for anyone to be more powerful than himself in any way.  Since Drake is a 5th generation vampire he would be just about the physically strongest supernatural being here.  However, Ian’s Sorcery affords him super strength as well.  So much so that Drake actually looked like he was in pain after Ian made his way to the head of the table to lift his 24K gold chalice to propose a toast. Amazingly his voice seemed to echo all the way down the end of the table a mile away. LOL!  “I welcome my good friends from Mystic Investigations along with the Carpmeister’s. Let us all show them the McTavish hospitality, and bless them in their magnificent missions!”  Elmer leans over to me, and whispers, “You think he’ll let us keep the gold chalice’s.”  Everyone at the table had one, and they probably had to be worth a good $10,000 each. Unfortunately, I had to inform him they were magically conjured and would disappear into vapor once they left the grounds of the magic school. Elmer leaned over to Gertrude and whispered, “Hey honey we can still fish some of those gold coins out of the fountain! If the Leprechaun can have them then so can we. We might just get our retirement fund back!”

Autumna -Fall NymphIt was an extremely extravagant 12-course banquet that Drake was actually allowed to enjoy.  Normally food would be poison to a vampire like Drake but Ian magically molded blood into food, or at least something that looked, and tasted like food.  Drake seemed quite happy to be able to eat what tasted like real food again without getting ill.  We were stuffed after dinner, and eager to get some sleep after our long journey here.  Within magic school walls everyone can fall asleep instantly into a deep dream state of amazing fantasies.  You need only think of what you’d like to dream of before you doze off.  Oddly enough I forgot that, and so I ended up dreaming of sleeping.  At least it was on a tropical beach!  Despite the fact that the Carpmeister’s stalker always attacked the first night they move into a new place we were confident nobody could do a thing to us here so we all slept with confidence.  Well, everyone except for Drake since vampires don’t need much sleep.  As a Demi-Zombie Ashley didn’t need much sleep as well but she chose to sleep at that time.  Drake strolled about the grounds amid the Scottish Highlands where he was born over 700 years ago.  He sat on the edge of the fountain the Leprechaun had been collecting coins in earlier. Gazing up at the Moon, and stars in the quiet of the warm night he felt like it was centuries ago, and he was still human.  Despite the temperature plummeting to the upper 30’s outside the school grounds, it was always in the 60’s within the magical bubble protecting the school.  A wall of colorful glittering leaves fluttered nearby. A clearly enamored Autumn Nymph materialized in physical form.  She introduced herself to Drake as Autumn which seems to be every Fall Nymph’s name.  What are the odds that every Autumn Nymph is named Autumn? LOL! The two mutual charmers conversed for quite a long time about the supernatural world and their interesting pasts. Apparently Autumn was a witch several centuries ago before dying and becoming a fairy. Then later a nymph.

A Powerful Dark Force Attacks

Amid the serenity of slumber, a loud explosion was heard that rocked the place like an extreme Earthquake!  We all awoke with our hearts pounding, and the Autumn Nymph vanished in flash of golden foliage while Drake ran to the drawbridge door that had been blown off. An alarm sounded throughout the school as screaming kids and teens ran to their designated battle zones or panic chambers.  Ian McTavish’s door blasted off its hinges as his eyes glowed green, and he bellowed, “Nobody crashes my school, and lives to tell the tale!” Most of us followed him as he ran to the drawbridge where Drake already was.  Rebecca and Julia stayed behind as the last level of defense protecting the terrified Elmer, and Gertrude. Drake saw nothing in front of him despite his super eyesight and other senses.  He was tossed aside like a rag doll through a stone wall by an unseen force as a voice screamed over a loudspeaker of some type, “Oh Elmer, and Gertrude I’m home!”  a small girl with a vial of glittering magenta liquid shattered it on the force based on the sound of the voice.  It caused a blurred shape to appear but it was undefinable  Three advanced magic students approached and began lopping energy orbs, and fireballs at the unknown force of evil but they merely bounced off.  The entity then shot what appeared to be green laser-like energy knocking them to the ground.  However with the protection spell in place they were not hurt. Yet they were dazed.

The blurry entity crashed through some walls and ended up in the courtyard where a few dozen students and two Professors attempted to stop him but failed in their effort as the thing moved at super speed knocking them over or shooting them with the green laser.  One student led a huge dragon forth on a leash, and screamed, “Attack Jenny!”  It breathed a mountain of fire at the entity of evil but it didn’t phase it.  In fact, it shot some kind of blue freeze ray extinguishing the dragon’s flames while tossing the helpless beast on its side like it didn’t weigh several tons.  Suddenly from behind the Loch Ness Monster dripping with water roared, and picked up the blur in its mouth attempting to eat it.  Unfortunately, a gold electrical energy tased the poor beast who was knocked out cold.  The protection spell on the compound was clearly weakening along with the entire school being exposed to the world without a cloaking spell.  Whatever this thing was it was beyond powerful! Possibly beyond anything ever written about in the secret supernatural record!

Technology Overcomes Magic?

33rd-Century-Super-ExoskeletonIan McTavish levitated toward it and shot a variety of mystical energy balls, beams, and something that looked like lightning.  Ian bellowed, “Reveal yourself to me scoundrel for today is your last day on Earth!”  Some professors and students joined in the attack as all manner of magics volleyed back, and forth between the magicians, and the unknown force that was finally being stopped from moving forward.  The blurry blasphemy cleared under the brunt force of Sorcery and revealed a clearly surprised man in a black ultra futuristic looking exoskeleton suit.  He screeched, “You magical freaks won’t keep me from Elmer, and Gertrude!  They’re mine to play with! I pull the strings of their pathetic life!”  Ian replied, “No sir you’re mine to play with, and I will own your deranged technological ass!”  It was inexplicable that any technology could be a match for such powerful magics. It was like nothing anyone had seen before.  It looked like we were going to win when all the sudden a high pitched noise caused glass to shatter everywhere as a blurred field of some type grew from the exoskeleton while the man cackled maniacally.  It almost appeared to be warping space.  As the warp wave hit everyone became disoriented and distorted looking with a feeling of being frozen in molasses!  Some of us passed out while others of us were just beyond dizzy.  Ian fought it as he had a personal magic shield around him. Unfortunately whatever was happening was warping reality, and a green beam coming from the exoskeleton hit McTavish sending him crashing through a stone wall.  At that moment the dark technology assisted individual raced away at super speed toward the castle containing the petrified Carpmeister’s who were both literally peeing their pants! What had they done to deserve this? Whatever technology this was must be well beyond anything known to the 21st century!

Magic Scottish School Mystery

McTavish Magic SchoolMystic Investigations has been chosen by Ian McTavish, one of the greatest Sorcerers on Earth, to investigate a series of unfortunate events at the prestigious McTavish International Academy Of Magical Sciences. The amazing academy is Rebecca Abernathy’s alma mater, and it’s magically cloaked on the shores of Loch Ness in the highlands of Scotland. The Headmaster McTavish doesn’t know who to trust anymore, and he judged Rebecca to be a good soul. Since we’re gaining a global reputation in paranormal investigations Ian decided our team might be able to get to the bottom of things. We took Duanna Sargon’s private jet. Before take off Drake Alexander’s vampire stalker, Elamia, hopped on to the wing as we were taking off, and punched a hole through the window. Duanna punched her in the face causing her to launch into a pond at the end of the tarmac. She vowed vengeance as she wallowed in the scum ridden waters. Once in the air many of us had fun while others fell asleep.

Once in Scotland we were welcomed as guests by one of Duanna’s vampire sons, Lord Cornwell. He had a huge castle in the picturesque Scottish countryside. Cornwell seemed like a stick in mud, and was very formal in all that he said, and did. He also insisted on being called Lord Cornwell or Sir Cornwell. Duanna seemed to gain joy by calling him Corny which made him cringe. Drake was eager to look for the home he grew up in as a child in 13th century Scotland. He thought it would be difficult with centuries of changing landscape but thanks to help from our psychic Julia Hathaway, Rebecca Abernathy;s magic, and his vampire mother Duanna we found the site of his home. The home used to sit at the foot of a Feudal Estate where his father was a serf. Now the entire area was woodland with only some random stones from the old manor. There was nothing left of Drake’s home. However he began digging into the Earth until it gave way beneath him, and he fell into a deep hole lined with stones. Drake said his father built a hiding place beneath their home to hide from the Feudal Lord McAllister’s drunken fits. He would get tanked up every so often, and go around declaring himself God over everyone. As Drake cleared the dirt from the walls we could see drawings he, his father, and mom had made. Drake then removed a stone to reveal a nearly rotted wood box. Inside was what he called the Amulet Of Andrew. Andrew being the patron saint of Scotland. His mother had given it to him for protection as a small child. Unfortunately when he tried to hold it in his hand it burned due to his demonic vampire DNA. I took it for him instead. Drake decided he was going to look into buying this land, and building a vacation home here.

The next day we all went to McTavish International Academy Of Magical Sciences. We walked to the shore of Loch Ness on a partly cloudy day in the upper 30’s with some fog rolling off the water. Our Cryptozoologist Ashley Abercrombie took our a special whistle to call forth the great Loch Ness Monster which none of us except Rebecca had seen before since he’s the magic schools mascot. Like many students she had the unique experience of riding around on the friendly Nessie. The great dinosaur like beast rose his head from the water, and let out an other worldly bellow as Rebecca yelled,”Nessie over here! It’s me Rebecca!” His bellows sounded like a laugh of sorts as he swam toward us like a flash of lightening. He came slightly on shore with his long front flippers sticking out, and his long giraffe like neck bowing down to kiss Rebecca. She giggled, and said,”Awww I missed you to Nessie!” Rebecca said she was going to ride Nessie into the school which was invisibly cloaked to everyone except those who have attended. So she was the only one who could see the buildings, and grounds further down the shore. She told us to walk in that direction, and wait for the academy to appear. Rebecca wanted me to join her but I wasn’t too keen on hitching a ride aboard the Loch Ness Monster. Although Zack Powers was more than happy to experience the magic of riding aloft a paranormal prehistoric aquatic beast. So they whooshed away on Nessie while the rest of us took in the sights of the Scottish countryside. After walking for a time Drake, and Duanna suddenly slammed into something invisible that nearly caused them to fall over. The rest of us had no issues walking further ahead while they stood there puzzled. Suddenly a stone building formed around us with Drake, and Duanna on the outside. We turned around to find a medieval looking castle with students bustling about. Rebecca, and a tall commanding figure of at least 6′ 5″ in height wearing a green velvet cape. He had emerald green eyes that almost seemed to glow with power, and nearly shoulder length hair that was crimson in color. In a booming John Tesh kind of voice he greeted us,”Welcome my friends from Mystic Investigations! I’m Ian McTavish!” Rebecca kept looking at him in this smitten kind of way as she had her arm around his. I think I was a bit jealous…LOL.

We all introduced ourselves. Ian was the kind of guy to give up all overbearing hand shakes that were borderline painful while gently kissing all the ladies hands. Our teenage bionic boy wonder Zack said later that he bent one of his steel fingers. Luckily nanobots repaired it instantly. Apparently Ian only decreases his hand shake grip if you grimace slightly. I inquired about why Duanna, and Drake could not enter. Rebecca then said she forgot about vampires not being allowed in the Academy. She knew both of them so well that she never thinks of them as vampires. Ian knew of their work in the fight against evil, and he waved his hand causing a portion of the wall to become invisible again. Duanna, and Drake were still standing there looking quite annoyed as Ian declared,”Enter my friends! Welcome to the McTavish International Academy Of Magical Sciences!” Ian took Duanna’s hand, and kissed it. He then said,”My what a strikingly beautiful vampiress you are. Sorry I don’t swing that way my dear.” He then let out a roar of a laugh. I assume he meant he wasn’t into vampire love interests. Duanna gave him a cross look. She only continued to tag along with us because it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the academy. Ian then said,”Ah yes Drake always good to meet a fellow Scotsman!” As he shook Drakes hand I heard a bone crack as Drake winced. Ian then replied,”Oh sorry my friend! Sometimes I don’t know my own strength!” He then chuckled a bit. My first impression of this guy was that of a blowhard with a huge ego but he has been a powerful force of good in the world so I suppose he had every right to act like a big shot. He was sure a hell of lot better than that rigid Sir Corny. He motioned for us to gather around him closely, and lowered his voice when he said,”There’s been a lot of unusual, and unfortunate incidents around our once peaceful Academy. I don’t know who to fully trust so as we travel about these hallowed halls I will introduce you as professors, and colleagues. The youngling will be a student naturally.” Zack frowned a bit as Ian slapped him on his bionic arm. It nearly caused him to fall over. This McTavish was one strong bastard physically, and magically!

He took us on a brief tour of the large magic school consisting of a huge grey stoned castle in the middle of the grounds right on the shore of Loch Ness, and several other medieval looking structures around it with plenty of field, and forest landscape in between. There was a huge moat around the entire estate that emptied or was supplied by Loch Ness at two points. The water moved in an odd manner. I couldn’t really tell which way it was going. In the center of the mystical grounds was a huge water fountain with gold, and silver coins thrown in it for good luck, and wishes. Various paranormal animals trotted about including a gaggle of rainbow glittering peacocks strutting to, and fro. Every so often they would fly a few feet in the air leaving a trail of glittering dust behind which would take several minutes to settle to the ground. The most spectacular was a bright white Unicorn that came up to us leaving a trail of iridescent sparkled behind it. She was supposedly one of the only trained Unicorns on Earth since they are notoriously shy, and cautious creatures. The Unicorns mystical rainbow colored eyes with intermittent shimmering was quite mesmerizing. We all petted her silky soft coat as Drake said,”This isn’t the Unicorn I saved coming back to grant me a wish is it?” Ian replied,”Not likely Drake! This fine creature has never left these grounds in decades! Tell us of your life saving tale!” Drake doesn’t like to brag but he reluctantly replied,”Well in October of 2010 I saved a Unicorn from a Werewolf attack in Woodland Springs.” McTavish then replied,”You magnificent bastard!” as he patted Drake on the back with such force that he nearly fell over. He then countered,”I saved this lovely lass when she was just a little foal….from a pack of 13 Werewolves under the spell of a trio of Wizards but whose counting huh Drake old man!” He forcefully slapped Drake in the back again, and Drake replied,”Damn Ian!” Drake then slapped Ian super hard on his back causing him to bend over a bit. Both men started laughing as Ian said,”Damn Alexander you really pack a wallop!” Then we all started laughing at what I have no idea. This caused the Unicorn to bolt away, and then we all abruptly stopped.

All the professors, staff, and students seem nice for the most part but one professor in particular gave me the creeps. He was a sinister looking man with frazzled black hair, and cold coal black blood shot eyes who wore a dark purple robe, and a glittering gold vest underneath it. He muttering something as he gave us all cold stares. McTavish yelled at him as he walked away,”Professor Velnias please don’t spend so much time talking to us. You’re chewing our ears off man!” We all started laughing, and he said,”Velnias is a bastard but he’s a damn fine professor of Necromancy!” Once in Headmaster McTavish’s office, and home, which was a small castle on a hill overlooking the entire school, he gave us our assignments so we could blend in, and investigate various incidents which includes zombies, werewolves, and all manner of evil creatures somehow infiltrating the school. Some students, and professors having such horrific nightmares that they woke up with wounds. Usually within the wall of this hallowed institution everyone has sweet vivid dreams due to a magic dream spell. There have also been numerous menacing apparitions appearing despite powerful protection spells in place. In addition there have been various acts of sabotage that have caused some injuries. Thankfully nobody has died yet. Again Ian many centuries ago personally put powerful protection spells to prevent injury, and death. There has never been an issue until now. He didn’t want to admit it but he was clearly shaken that something was undermining his almighty authority, and magical powers of sorcery. So we headed off to get to the bottom of things. Unfortunately as I began to leave the office I turn around, and see Ian hugging Rebecca while kissing her on the cheek. Man this guy really thinks he’s something doesn’t he?
