The Return Of The Supernatural Slender Man!
The sinister Slenderman appeared in a flash of eerie emerald light in the midst of the nocturnal Mystical Forest of Woodland Springs, Colorado. This most malicious monster from a parallel dimension teleports with ease when fully powered up on the life force of the innocent children he preys upon. Of course in their case, he merely kidnaps them and holds some semblance of reverence for their magical purity as his dimension contains no kids. Slender Man’s real nefarious nature flies free when mentally torturing adults, and instilling the Slender Sickness upon them. He relishes driving them into a paranormal madness that leads to the manipulation of their minds to murder others, and then commit suicide. Rarely does he directly kill his intended target. He gains more pleasure in being the puppet master of unwitting humans in his real-life chess game of doom! However, when attacked he will eradicate all who dare to defy him! Slender Man was sentenced to Earth by his own people for unknown crimes many centuries ago, and now his only mission in life is to prey upon us!
The Slender Man walked in a ghoulishly graceful manner about the dark lush forest teeming with normal, and paranormal life whose sounds could be heard bellowing about the many evergreens, and minority deciduous trees. The light of the half Moon filtering through the tree canopy revealing the pale faceless figure dressed in a black business suit with a black tie that is known to turn scarlet when his prey has been targeted for termination. As a limited shapeshifter Slenderman also grows a plethora of sharp tentacles that can be deadly to anyone! The foliage of the forest crunched beneath his shiny black dress shoes causing a chorus of crickets to fall quiet leaving only the sound of the warm summer winds rustling the trees to, and fro. Two gentle water nymphs, aka minor nature deities, swam au naturel giggling with glee in a slow flowing stream. Slender crossed a small bridge over the stream staring at the metaphysical beauties with his unique vision devoid of actual physical eyes. Both lovely ladies were startled by his ominous presence and quickly shifted into non-corporeal form appearing only as transparent specters. He left them behind knowing, at least in his mind, that he was the apex predator in this particular neck of the woods.
Slenderman’s earless head translated sound waves into information that told him humans were nearby. Just then two vampires pounced from a thick block of brush briefly surprising him. The male and female vampires had been waiting for a human to come into the forest by themselves and were eager for a quick bloody meal. They neglected to get a good look at the Slender Man as they immediately bit into his neck, and shoulder from behind. However, they stopped the instant they ingested the first line of his vile tasting pitch black blood. Slenderman quickly shook them off with his supernatural strength. This caused the demonic duo to fly into two different tree trunks. One tree fell down loudly as the female vampire screamed,”Oh crap it’s the Slender Man!” Both were instantly ill and weakened by his poisonous blood that would give them the Slender Man Sickness for all eternity. Slender grew a black tentacle that went around the male’s neck, and then beheaded him with glee! This caused the vamp to burst into unholy violet colored flames. Nothing but a pile of ash was left while the female vampire lay helplessly on the ground crying,”Please don’t kill me! I want to live forever! I can be of use to you!” Slender Man knew he had complete mental control of the vampire now that his extra-dimensional blood was in her forever. He decided to let her go as a potential useful puppet in the future. He temporarily suppressed the Slender Man sickness in her as if nothing had ever happened, and she ran away into the night at super speed.
Slender neared the edge of the treeline where a crowd was gathered on Luminary Lake just as the iridescent Independence Day fireworks began to blast across the Moon and starlit skies. The last embers of the sunset were nothing but a faint blue light on the western horizon. Slender viewed the pyrotechnics as mindless and was only interested in the children at their parent’s safe side viewing the spectacle. He could clearly make out their unique energy auras that no normal human could witness. Something struck him about a young five-year-old boy playing near the waters edge with a golden retriever. He knew the child would be an ideal source of mystical energy as he was starting to run low on paranormal power.
The Slender Man shapeshifted into an almost snake-like form as he slithered on his stomach along the ground into the lake. He eyed the boy from beneath the water’s surface but the golden retriever entered the water barking wildly trying to warn everyone of impending danger. Slender then shot up a tentacle and dragged the dog underwater casting him out flying into the center of the lake. Thankfully the dog wasn’t harmed and swam back to shore later on. A good number of people in the crowd took notice of the catapulted dog and began screaming as Slenderman sprang up out of the water, and grabbed the child into his slimy slender arms. Everyone was shrieking in sheer terror at the sight of the faceless Slenderman! The boys parents lunged forth but Slender sprang through the crowd at what seemed like light speed knocking several people over. Both Slender and boy disappeared into the dark foreboding forest with his cries for help fading to nothing in the great distance! The rockets red glare flashing everywhere on a most unfortunate fourth of July!
The Woodland Springs Police were called to the scene of the boy kidnapped by Slender Man in front of a shocked crowd of people enjoying the July 4th fireworks still bursting colorfully in the air. As usual cantankerous Police Chief Spencer Cantrell refused to believe in the world of the paranormal. He called every eyewitness in the crowd a bunch of hysterical July 4th drunks as he noted the coolers full of beer, and wine coolers strewn about. Thankfully a true supernatural believer in law enforcement heard the call on the emergency radio. Comanche County Sheriff Blake Maverick raced to the scene with sirens sounding, and lights flashing. Upon arrival at the park, the Sheriff ordered the useless police to leave the area. After a brief shouting match amid the loud booms of the fireworks. Cantrell and his men sped away down the road after the Sheriff finally threatened to arrest them all for obstruction of justice. After getting brief statements from the witnesses Maverick called Xavier Remington, President of Mystic Investigations on his cell phone. That would be me!
I was across Luminary Lake on the opposite shore in the backyard of Remington Manor. My palatial estate lies on the edge of the Enchanted Woodland. A mostly deciduous wooded area as opposed to the mostly dense evergreen foliage of the Mystical Forest. It’s also not as full of paranormal life. Most of the Mystic Investigations team was at my house for my Fourth Of July party which naturally had an excellent view of the fireworks over the lake. Everyone was there except for my Executive Vice-President Drake Alexander who was in London helping a secret agent friend in MI7 to identify the Devil. The Devil had been seen with The Plague Doctor at Stonehenge. Drake, a vampire, is one of the few people to actually see the Devil in his current human-like form. His British friend decided Drake would be indispensable in helping to identify and locate the Devil along with ascertaining his intent on the British Isles. Also as a vampire, Drake has demonic based DNA that allows him to sense when the Devil is near. Since Slender Man has recently worked with the Devil, despite being a centuries old loner, we’re thankful he wasn’t anywhere near Woodland Springs. It’s also probably a good thing Drake isn’t here since his last encounter with Slender caused him to drink his blood. Despite cleansing him of the Slender Sickness it’s suggested that such extra-dimensional blood can never be completely eradicated which leaves the door open for Drake possibly being controlled by the Slenderman.
Most of us were near my boat dock ready to go out on to the lake when Julia Hathaway, our psychic, got a bad feeling in the pit of her stomach. She suddenly blurted out,”Slenderman!” I then replied,”What the hell?” She then had a brief vision, and told us,”OMG Slenderman kidnapped a child!” Unfortunately, when it comes to Slender there is a psychic delay which is why she got the vision too late. Everyone hopped into my speed boat except for Rebecca Abernathy, my girlfriend, a white witch, and a Demi-Mermaid. She was already wearing a bikini since it was a warm night. So all Rebecca had to do is kick off her sandals, and dive into the dark waters reflecting the pyrotechnic skyscape. A raised line of water with waves radiating outward could be seen racing across the lake at superhuman speeds. I revved up the boat and followed in fast pursuit. Ahead the opposite shore grew closer while seeing Rebecca launch from the water to the side of the crowd so only a few children saw her. That’s when my cell phone rang, and Blake said he needed Mystic Investigations. Rebecca smiled and tapped him on the shoulder. He said,”Wow that’s quick service!” Our boat came ashore, and our team got to work.
We assured the parents we would find their boy and bring him home safely. Although in my mind I was thinking the worst since our encounter with Slender Man last summer. We barely got away with our lives! Thankfully Slenderman does not hurt children. Rather he absorbs their innocent magical energies. Energies Slender needs to stay at peak power. The iridescent kaleidoscope of glittering glory still roared across the skies while trekking into the Mystical Forest. The Sheriff stayed behind with the clearly shocked crowd. That’s why she got the vision of the kidnapping too late, and couldn’t sense that Slender was in Woodland Springs.
Julia Hathaway and Ex-Navy Seal Hunter Jackson lead the team forging forth into the foreboding darkness. I was hoping Julia could sense the supernatural Slender but his mind works differently than any other being paranormal or otherwise. We lucked out that Slenderman was walking rather than teleporting so Hunter could track his trail. Perhaps Slenderman has an encounter with some powerful enemies, and his energy was drained. If he teleported it would be next to impossible to find him as you could be anywhere on Earth. Our luck ran out when the trail ended in a babbling brook.
Rebecca then gently seemed to be talking to thin air as she said,”Oh sweet Nymphs of the babbling brook please reveal yourself to us.” Suddenly two extremely beautiful women wearing virtually nothing but green leafy vines, and flowers appeared first as apparitions. Then they were fully physical as they emerged from the cool waters. They said Slenderman scared them as he walked directly down the brook that turns into a stream, and then empties into a large pond past the treeline. The Nymphs sensed he was growing weaker from a previous attack. From various reports over the past 10 years, we gathered that Slender needs to partake of a certain ritual to gather energy from children. So he had to get the child to some mystical location.
We bid the Nymphs farewell and split up. Rebecca activated her Mystic Sphere, a translucent pink levitating energy bubble that forms around her. I joined her along with Zack Powers, our bionic boy wonder, and we flew away. Unfortunately, there’s only so many who can fit inside so the rest of the team went on foot down the brook into the larger stream. Rebecca directed her sphere toward the large pond while communing with the supernaturals of the Mystical Forest who could help her locate Slender.
Some hours later Rebecca managed to find Slenderman’s location in an underground cavern that lies in between the Earth’s surface and the Underworld. The Mystic Investigations team gathered various supplies and trekked downward. What we found was quite shocking and we may be the first to make this finding and survive. We happened upon one of Slenderman’s hidden locations around the world where he keeps children in a stasis state to mine them for enchanted energies. These locations tend to be on Mother Earth energy centers. In this case, it’s The Heart Of The Mystical Forest. Interestingly enough, it seems a new child must be added regularly to in essence recharge the grander metaphysical battery. These kids remain in an ageless dream state for years, decades, and even centuries in some cases. The dreams need a new mind to invigorate the imaginations of everyone. This thereby stokes the supernatural energies Slender needs to power up his spooky ass!
Rebecca, Julia, and Drake couldn’t sense Slenderman’s presence but he had recently been there. We sneaked into the large cavern cautiously. It was lit by eerie colored orbs hanging from the ceiling. They encompassed all the colors of the rainbow but in a deeply unfamiliar way. At least a hundred kids were lying on flat raised stones evenly spaced about the cavern. Closest to us was the kidnapped boy as identified by a photo his parents gave us! Cryptozoologist and Doctor Ashley Abercrombie examined the boy and determined he was in what appeared to be a coma like state with rampant REM sleep in progress. The rest of the kids appeared the same. As some of us milled further through the young crowd the clothing on them looked more and more dated. At the far side were kids clearly dressed in clothing from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s! And even a few Native American kids that Julia sensed may have been from the early 1800’s or earlier. Our town Woodland Springs was founded in 1861!
Rebecca attempted various spells along with potions to wake the boy up as Julia tried to enter his mind. All efforts failed. The child was under the diabolical control of Slenderman! We even tried to use Drake’s healing vampire blood to wake him up but it had no effect. We made the decision to take him and everyone we could out of there. We would have Drake hypnotize an army of volunteers to get the rest and then make them forget what they saw. Unfortunately, before we could leave we were blocked by an extremely angry Slenderman at the exit! He psychically forced his bellowing voice into all our heads so loudly it brought us great pain! He screamed,”How dare you enter my sacred temple of innocence! All whose eyes lay upon my domain shall die! Place the children down and prepare to meet your final end you misguided fools!”
The pain subsided and we placed the children on the ground away from us for their protection. Last time we faced Slenderman we barely got away with our lives! Now we were on his home turf and Julia sensed he was powered up from the kid’s energy! We had no chance to attack as he psychically forced so much agony upon us that we all collapsed to the floor! We writhed in pain unable to move. His tentacles began squeezing around us! It seemed our death was imminent! Then it miraculously stopped as we realized Slender was fighting someone in the cave that exited the main cavern. We crawled to it and saw it was the infamous huge stick figure known as The Slenderman Assassin!
It’s believed the Assassin is from Slenderman’s home dimension. A hit-man sent by people he offended outside of the prison sentence on Earth given by his own government. This was the fight that had previously weakened him. It seems the Assassin managed to track him here and now Slender was getting a sweet beat down! As we regained strength we rooted the Assassin on. The two were engaged in an almost mesmerizing shape shifting battle. The sheer force of it was causing the gradual collapse of the cave thereby trapping us in the cavern! There was no way to get past their chaotic battle and the only other way out was another cave that descended into the Underworld of Dark Gods and Demons! All of that was irrelevant as we refused to leave the kids behind!
The cave collapsed on the two shape-shifting fighters as a cloud of dust flew into the cavern of kids. We believed they were dead but we learned much later they weren’t! Although Slenderman must have been weakened or knocked out cold because every kid in the cave awoke deeply confused. It’s no easy task to reassure over a hundred kidnapped kids that all is well in a dark cavern! All we could say is that we would get them out of here and back to their parents. Unfortunately for many, their parents were long dead! In addition, the sudden reappearance of ageless kids would violate The Supernatural Secrecy Pact. Possibly the government would attempt to take the kids for paranormal research!
We reluctantly led the kids down the cave to the Underworld as there was nowhere else to go! We hoped there would be a side cave leading to the surface. Our flashlights lit the dark caverns and we knew the Underworld was at hand when an unholy orange glow began lighting the way. On the cave walls, odd looking moss and flowers began to appear in colors of black and crimson. Suddenly a dark fairy appeared buzzing around us amused by our presence. She giggled as her black wings flapped furiously while trying to bite us. She bit into Drake and was momentarily startled by the vampire blood. Drake was able to catch her in his hand and she begged to be released. Drake said he would if she showed us how to get to the surface. The dark fairy knew the way but it was a perplexing maze to the surface and she would turn to ash if she ventured too far away from the Underworld.
She said she used to be a good field fairy who was lured into a demons dark web due to her lust for power. She regretted her decision and wanted her former status restored. Rebecca said she could cast a spell to temporarily protect her. Then once at the surface, she would call upon local nature deities to attempt to welcome her back into Mother Nature’s fold. Indeed we made it to the surface in the Mystical Forest and the fairy was made whole again by a flock of fairies.
Now we had to figure out what to do with the kids. Julia read their minds along with Rebecca boosting the process with a spell. Only 5 kids could be returned to their parents without supernatural explanation. This included the kidnapped boy that sparked this adventure to begin with. 47 more would have to grow up before being reunited with their families. The rest had families long gone! We loaded them on a chartered jet and flew to North Pole City! Only our friend the Demi-Angel Santa Claus could clean up Slenderman’s mess. We’ve spent every Christmas with Santa since 2011. Something open to those of us in the real paranormal community.
Once there Santa, Mrs. Claus, and several elves greeted us and the children. The once scared and confused kids were now beyond elated at being in the happiest place on Earth! The kids who could never go home would remain forever young in the confines of Santa’s winter wonderland. Santa contemplated utilizing his chronokinetic powers of time travel to everyone home despite the overwhelming power drain. However, the Archangels of heaven frown upon overuse of temporal incursions. Not to mention the fact that Slenderman would just re-kidnap them again! Once he targets a child there’s no changing his mind. Even if that was the case then another child would be lost in their place! The 47 kids who needed to be of a certain age to cast away supernatural suspicions would be allowed to grow up and then decide if they wanted to return home or remain at the North Pole City. If they returned home they would need a permanent glamouring spell cast to further advance their age to the proper level. We placed a big mess in Santa’s hands but he handled with grace as we bid him farewell. We can only hope that Slenderman is someday eradicated from existence!
If this was a television show this would be the song running in the end credits of this particular episode:
