As you may know, there have been numerous news reports of UFOs over the past few weeks. Eerily illuminated Unidentified Flying Objects hovering or darting over various American communities. Our community, Woodland Springs, Colorado has been one of those towns. I, Xavier Remington, spotted one a few nights ago while star gazing near the witching hour. The next morning the Woodland Springs Channel 7 News said there were eyewitness accounts of a UFO abducting a twenty-something couple who had been camping together in the Enchanted Woodland which we live on the edge of. Not soon after we got a call at Mystic Investigations from the parents of the girl, Tammy Anderson, who was taken. Since we were the only ones who believed them they hired us to investigate. We’re well aware of the existence of extraterrestrials but we also had to accept that this might all be a hoax and her disappearance was caused by someone or something else. After interviewing the other couple who had been camping with Tammy and her boyfriend, we were pretty sure this was the real alien deal. More than likely the aliens known as “Greys” were responsible. They are an aggressive alien species from the planet Gliese 581c which is 20 light-years away. They are related to the more docile green aliens from Gliese 581g which were the ones shot down by the US Government at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Based on past alien abduction patterns we knew they’d return to the same general area looking for victims, preferably couples, to kidnap and experiment upon so we set up an ET sting operation.
Various members of our professional paranormal team set up campsites within the Enchanted Woodland and in the nearby Mystical Forest as well. The Mystical Forest campsite had Vampire Drake Alexander and Telekinetic Psychic Julia Hathaway. Our resident half-mermaid Witch Rebecca Abernathy and I were in the Mystic RV at the Luminary Lake campgrounds which are right near our house in between the Mystical Forest and Enchanted Woodland. Ex-Navy Seal Hunter Jackson and half-zombie Cryptozoologist Ashley Abercrombie were at a site well within the west quadrant of the Enchanted Woodland. They drove there in a truck with the Mysticopter on a trailer being towed behind just in case we wanted to try and pursue an alien craft. Bionic boy wonder Zack Powers was able to come along since it’s spring break and not a school night. He camped with Investigator Elizabeth Weatherly who was in the east quadrant of the Enchanted Woodland. Our Receptionist Carrie Benjamin has been on vacation since the Spring Saturnalia incident. For now, we have a temp who refuses to get involved with anything paranormal. Ghost Hunter Rob Edmunds was monitoring the skies from our Paranormal Activity Forecast Center which provides reports for our other blog. Sometime around 10:45 PM Zack and Elizabeth said they were seeing blinking multicolored lights in the sky slowly approaching their direction. Rob Edmunds reported that the radar was picking up something but the signal was distorted by an unusual level of electromagnetic activity.
With the verification of the radar report, Hunter roared up the Mysticopter and flew to the scene with Ashley. Meanwhile, I revved up the Mystic RV and raced to the location with Rebecca. Despite Julia having a vision that a craft would make an appearance in the Mystical Forest that night, Drake ran off at super speed to the campsite. Zack and Elizabeth peered from behind the tent door flaps as the wind picked up causing dust to swirl about wildly. The rainbow array of lights coalesced into a glaring white light shined down directly upon their tent. Elizabeth then exclaimed, “I didn’t survive the sinking of the Titanic just for some UFO to take me away!” Zack then said, “Don’t worry Miss Weatherly I’ll protect you!” The tent was lined with a special metal alloy charged with a battery to make it electromagnetic. The electromagnetism was activated once the UFO was nearby. We wanted the extraterrestrials to detect us yet not be able to transport us up to their ship if indeed it had that capability.
The ET vessel kept hovering overhead ominously. They probably wondered why they could no longer detect humans in the tent. Suddenly a sparkling golden light danced on the edge of the woods near the tent and when it dissipated two small grey aliens appeared. The kind with skinny bodies, big heads, and large eyes we’re all familiar with through television and movies. They walked slowly toward the tent amid the bright UFO lights that now had some eerie green strobe lights among the glaring white lights. They had a sinister look on their monstrous faces! Elizabeth then spoke into the radio, “Oh crap! When are you guys getting here! The aliens are coming for us!” The extraterrestrials got to the tent door and Zack punched his bionic arm out hitting one of the little bastards right in its big face. It caused him to fly back to the edge of the woods. Zack then sprung out and kicked the other alien in the gut causing him to fly back a number of feet and hit the ground hard. Zack then screamed, “Yeah that’s right you ET sons of bitches! Come get some more bionic beat downs!”
Just then the Mysticopter flew in approaching the extraterrestrial vessel which was basically a streamlined triangle-shaped ship. With rounded edges and a rectangular rear with some type of pink illuminated propulsion. Hunter tried to make radio contact but got nothing back but static. He then opened machine-gun fire in the hopes of disabling it so we could save the abducted couple. Unfortunately, the bullets bounced off the futuristic craft without incident! A bright blue beam shot from the ship and hit the Mysticopter but our special armor, and supernatural shielding held strong. Still, Hunter struggled to stay aloft under the force of this unknown light beam. Especially with the instruments fluctuating wildly! He then fired a military-grade rocket that exploded upon the ship’s hull resulting in no noticeable damage. Although this caused the aliens to shoot back an even more powerful glittering crimson beam which resulted in all the helicopter systems going dead as Hunter came in for a crash landing. It landed in the woods without major damage or anyone getting hurt.
Meanwhile, one of the fallen aliens sprung up and pointed a clear cylinder at Zack. A yellow energy beam came cascading out, hitting Zack and knocked him out cold. Elizabeth came out in a rage and shot the alien with a taser causing him to fall to the ground. He shook violently as if having a seizure. Before she could reset the taser electrode lines the other alien came toward her. At that moment she disappeared in a dazzling golden light spectacle. She had been teleported to the craft along with Zack as well. As we roared up in the Mystic RV, the alien was startled by our headlights so we attempted to run him down but suddenly the RV went dead. Presumably, the UFO knocked it out through a strong electromagnetic burst of some type. We sprung out and I opened machine-gun fire on him but he disappeared in the teleportation lights. Rebecca went for the tasered alien who was just regaining consciousness. The light appeared around him but Rebecca yelled, “Oh no you don’t!” She grabbed him and screamed “Mystic Sphere!” Her magical translucent metaphysical energy orb appeared around her and the alien was mystically cutting off the sparkling teleportation lights. She motioned me to join her but before I could get to the Mystic Sphere sparkling golden lights whizzed around me and I felt dizzy. Then everything went black. Rebecca then shouted, “You abducted my boyfriend you damn alien asses!”
A blue beam hit the Mystic Sphere and it wavered a bit in an epic battle of magic vs technology. The beam grew more powerful and Rebecca strained to keep her magical shield in place. She then gripped a green crystal in her hand she had taken from a pouch on her belt and recited an incantation, “Aeolus I call unto thee with the power of the ancient Crystal Of Lore. Soar forth your winds of war. Let them bore down against the unearthly invaders evermore. I implore thee to plummet them to the woodland floor.” A vertical gale-force wind crashed down from the sky violently shaking the alien vessel and whipping the trees about as if a tornado was raging. The lights flickered on the craft as it came down slowly. A dull sky blue light flickered around the entire ship as if it was a shield or energy field struggling to keep it in place. It looked like it was going to finally land but then it shot a purple beam upward causing the entire sky to light up for a few seconds. It then bolted away into the dark heavens at an amazing speed and disappeared in a flash. Rebecca then cried, “Nooooooooooooooooo!” The alien next to her reached for a clear cylinder device on his belt but she punched him in the face knocking him out cold while yelling, “Take that creepy alien boy!” Drake ran up just then. Rebecca then bellowed, “You’re too late dammit!”, as the Mystic Sphere collapsed and she passed out from exhaustion. Drake came to her aid with a look of utter disappointment on his face.
I awoke and found myself lying in a clear bubble illuminated with an odd spotlight from above that seemed to be neither incandescent, fluorescent, halogen, or LED. A perfect sphere that was made of a clear material that felt like glass although when I punched it nothing happened but a pain-filled hand. Outside my lit confines was nothing but pitch blackness. Just as I was thinking how annoying it was to stand inside a sphere without a flat bottom I began to float for the first time in my life. I was shocked for a moment by the mere event but then I became even more alarmed once I realized I was probably in outer space. Maybe even light-years from Earth. I’d never felt such a horrible feeling in my life! It was alarming to potentially be so far from everything and everyone I knew. Possibly never seeing Earth again and having to be a lab rat on an alien planet! Perhaps even caged in an extraterrestrial zoo. At that moment I’d have given anything to be in a haunted house full of familiar Earthly ghosts, werewolves, and vampires. Several neon green laser-like lights formed a grid on me and moved about slowly as if scanning me. As soon as the laser light snapped off an alien suddenly appeared out of the darkness right up against my bubble. It scared the hell out of me as he or maybe she stared at me with its large black insect-like eyes. It was punching something into an ipad looking device. Then my bubble jail began moving and made its way into a dimly lit chamber with other clear spheres which had spotlights above them.
Once I stopped moving I could see other people in floating clear spheres including Zack, Elizabeth, the missing girl Tammy, and presumably her boyfriend in the bubble next to her. I tried to yell toward them but clearly, my jail was soundproof. We all stared at each other with fear not knowing what was going to happen to us. I noticed Zack’s sphere had some cracks in it so apparently, these things weren’t invincible. Although his bionics weren’t enough to pierce his prison and he looked exhausted from trying to escape. Tammy and her boyfriend were wearing white latex-looking suits so they must have had some close contact of some type with the aliens. Suddenly I realized there was a small window on the other side of the room. The bubbles were moving slowly around the room and once I got near the window I was somewhat relieved to see Earth in the distance. I estimate we were closer to the moon than the Earth but at least my fears of heading to another star system were quieted. Despite the fright of the situation, I was kind of excited that I was actually in outer space. Something I never thought would happen in my lifetime. A door in the room opened and both Zack and Elizabeth’s sphere’s floated out of the room. Both look terrified and I was scared for what was about to happen to them. I was totally helpless to do anything and prayed someone would save us.
Hunter and Ashley had finally trekked in from their helicopter crash slightly bruised but none the worse for wear. They found Drake helping an exhausted Rebecca up with an unconscious alien lying nearby. Ashley immediately ran to the alien and began eagerly examining her first extraterrestrial cryptid. Hunter trained his machine gun on the alien ready for anything. Drake informed them that Zack, Elizabeth, and I had been abducted by aliens to parts unknown. Drake contacted Rob on the radio back at Mystic Investigations Headquarters. He said he was detecting nothing on the radar and the ship had most likely left Earth. Rebecca was simultaneously contacting Julia who was still camped in the Mystical Forest to find out when the ship might return. Her original vision indicated it would return that night to the Mystical Forest to abduct another couple. Everyone loaded into the Mystic RV and headed to Julia’s campsite. Halfway there Rebecca opens the door and jumps out while yelling “Mystic Sphere!” Drake shouted, “Rebecca where the hell are you going?!” Her pink orb lifted her above the tree line and out of view within seconds. They made it to the campsite and awaited the UFO’s return while hoping Rebecca wasn’t going to do anything without thinking it through. Once Rebecca is angered she partakes of aggressive action to take down her adversaries with extreme prejudice!
Rebecca’s Mystic Sphere landed in a grove of majestic pines within the enchanted heart of the Mystical Forest. She then took out a knife and cut the palm of her hand causing blood to fall out onto the ground. She waved her hand sprinkling blood about and screamed, “Hey if there’s any vampires around I got fresh blood for you!” Nothing happened after several minutes and then she yelled, “For the love of God bleeding girl with sweet magical mermaid blood here! Hello!” After some more minutes, a woman exits the tree line into the clearing as her amber eyes glowed with lust toward Rebecca. Her fangs were clearly visible and it was obvious she was a vampire. The vampiress then softly speaks, “Ah yes my child you will be quite a delicious….” The vampire was stopped mid-sentence as Rebecca exclaimed, “I don’t have time for this crap!” She throws an enchanted wooden stake while simultaneously hollering, “Volo Talea!”. This caused the stake to fly at the vampire with an amazing speed so fast it wasn’t able to dodge it.
The stake hit the vampire dead in the heart and she fell to the ground. Rebecca immediately placed some white crystals around the vampire’s body and began reciting an incantation. She knew she had to hurry before the vampire burst into unholy flames and turned to ash. Normally this would have happened instantly but the enchanted state was meant to delay that. “Mystical Forest I implore you to reveal your hallowed Heart to me. With this succubus sacrifice I give unto thee I wish to see the source of your power if judged worthy. Feel the blood of the beast seep into your sainted soils and run through your righteous roots. Let your answer come forth now and I shall owe you a favor in the future.” Just then a clap of thunder bellowed and a bolt of lightning flashed about the sky as the wind whipped up. A bright golden light trickled from the trees and Rebecca walked toward it.
She made her way through the trees basking in the warm magical light. Soon she had made her way to the elusive and once thought impossible to find Heart Of The Mystical Forest. The magical energy source thought to power the entire forest and all its unusual paranormal activity. The golden sun-like orb with rays of slow-moving light flowing from it floated above a large round stone with ancient Native American writing on it. Around the orb were seven upright stone tablets about 7 feet tall. It sort of reminded Rebecca of a mini Stonehenge. Rebecca then placed a clear amulet around her neck and walked past the stones and onto the round stone engulfing herself within the magical energy. It felt good at first but then she experienced excruciating pain that caused her to scream loudly.
The hellish pain was her body pulsing with amazing metaphysical power that wasn’t meant for a human or even a witch with mermaid blood. She could not exit until she saw her amulet was bright red. This meant she had all the power she could absorb and the amulet would magically keep it within her biological confines rather than dissipate back into the forest. Near the end, she sensed a conscious presence that felt neither good nor evil. Finally, the magic amulet turned red and she bolted out while excitedly exclaiming, “Thank you Mystical Heart!” She then roared, “MYSTIC SPHERE!” causing her to fly high up into the sky higher than she’d ever flown before.! Within seconds she was looking back at Earth as she headed into space for the first time in her life. A simultaneously exhilarating, and frightening experience to say the least! Continued In Part II…
