It was a hot sunny July Sunday as I sat by the window in my library at Remington Manor. I was reading up on the latest happenings in the paranormal world courtesy of Paranormal Investigators Monthly Magazine. A warm breeze flowed in on the verge of being hot so I contemplated turning on the central air. Suddenly child-like whimsy entered my heart upon hearing the most quintessential sound of summer in the distance! The merry melodies of the neighborhood ice cream truck making it creamy rounds. Naturally, there was also the sound of kids screaming for ice cream. I peered out the front door as the music grew louder. Some kids ran past yelling, “Ask Mom for some money! The ice cream man is coming!”
I could see the white truck gleaming in the sun in the distance. It came down the road slowly making its way here. I set my mystical magazine down and walked out to partake of some creamy delights. As I strolled toward the street my girlfriend Rebecca Abernathy came around from the back of the house where she had been working on her glorious garden. She exclaimed, “Hey wait for me, Xavier! I’m dying for some ice cream!” We strolled down the cement sidewalk as children ran past full of joy and anticipation of their sweet selections. Soon the truck was upon us and the music stopped as everyone clamored around the big truck of treats.
I had ordered ice cream from a truck a few times this summer but this particular time the ice cream truck and the man at the helm were completely unfamiliar to me. Someone very sinister-looking but I learned a long time ago not to judge a book by its cover. Especially in the world of the supernatural where looks can be deeply deceiving. So I looked past his creepy appearance that came complete with a somewhat unsettling smile. I set my sights on a Creamsicle while Rebecca was hoping for a Dreamsicle. Luckily the ice cream man, whose name tag said Ernie, had both.
As Rebecca, and I enjoyed our orange creamy goodness I observed Ernie’s interaction with the kids and something just didn’t seem right about him. It was a gut feeling but I had a hunch he harbored ill will toward the children despite his smile. There was just something not right about the look in his dark foreboding eyes and the tone of his seemingly disingenuous voice. The melodiousness of the white freezer on wheels roared up and the truck slowly rolled away down Enchantment Lane.
I was sound asleep sometime after Midnight in the thick of the Witching Hour as I dreamed of swimming from a beach into the ocean to meet an ice cream boat. LOL! The music of the boat grew louder and I woke up before I made it there. I was still hearing the faint whimsical tunes as I lie awake in the dark shadows of my bedroom. I looked out the window and it was the ice cream truck inching along the roadway without its headlights on. Yet the music was playing at a much lower volume than usual. The cab was dimly lit by an eerie green light. I got out my night vision binoculars and I could see what appeared to be Ernie in the Driver’s seat staring out at houses. He stopped in front of one house that had kids and walked out onto the front lawn. Read The Rest Of This Short Story In The Adventures Of Mystic Investigations…🍦
Happy Fourth Of July! These are the supernatural stories of what Mystic Investigations was up to on various Independence Days. In 2014 we found one of Slenderman’s infamous caverns where he stores his kidnapped kids in eternal stasis. As we saved the children we witnessed an epic battle between the shapeshifting one and his nemesis the Slenderman Assassin! Then in 2015, we discovered a local fireworks proprietor was putting on spectacular shows using his amazing pyrokinetic and photokinetic powers! We later aided in saving him from a sinister Sorcerer who wanted to utilize his power for dark purposes!
The Summer Of Slenderman! – July 4th, 2014
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! Read The Rest On Our Stories Blog…
The Pyrokinetic Protege – July 4th, 2015
The blasphemous Brimstone, Sorcerer Of Darkness, and former apprentice of the current King Of Hell Sorcerer Dimitri Diablo, magically blasted through the glass entrance doors of Mystic Investigations headquarters. Amid the flying shattering glass he violently vociferated,”Mystic Investigations release my protege, and I promise nobody will be harmed! Keep me waiting any longer, and you shall all surely die!” Through the Sorcerer’s remodeled front entrance six of his henchmen entered all armed with swords. Brimstone, dressed in his ceremonial Sorcerers robe, ordered them to scatter, and find everyone. Brimstone himself walked behind the Receptionists desk, and activated the intercom system broadcasting his demands once again. At that moment an old portly woman waddled in, and meekly said,”I have a Gnome in my basement. He refuses to leave. He scares the hell out of me! Can you help me sir?” Brimstone calmly replied,”My dear woman why on Earth would you want to get rid of a Gnome? Consider it a blessing, and offer it plenty of children to eat. In return he will defend you against any threat, and take out anyone you may find undesirable.” The woman was speechless for several seconds before replying,”Ah ummm thank you sir.” She turned around, and waddled out the door with a puzzled look on her face.

All of us at Mystic Investigations had off on Memorial Day. Of course, theoretically, we’re never off duty since supernatural darkness never sleeps! Most of us went our separate ways but saw each other at the various festivities throughout the warm sunny day in Woodland Springs, Colorado. This included the annual Memorial Day Parade in the morning. I noticed an odd grey-skinned man wearing a tattered World War II soldier’s uniform complete with a faded green helmet. He was walking among the parade floats with a sinister look on his unsettling face. Our Telekinetic Psychic Julia Hathaway found us and said she felt chills up her spine when the mysterious man looked directly at her! She called his eyes soulless coals of death! The fair Demi-Mermaid Witch Rebecca Abernathy also said something wasn’t right about him. Well besides the stale zombie looking skin. We tried to find him but he disappeared into the crowd without a trace.
Did Nazi Experiments Cause The Impeccable Preservation Of A Corpse?
Later in the afternoon, we attended a solemn service at the local cemetery to honor the men and women of the armed forces who had given their lives to defend our fundamental freedoms. A special ceremony was held in front of the Mulroney Family Crypt. The Mulroney’s were a moderately wealthy family who made their fortune in mining back in the late 1800’s. A long-lived fortune that still allowed them to live like millionaires. The 76-year-old Patriarch Wallace Mulroney was recently informed that his MIA Father’s remains were miraculously found in Germany. Shockingly they were found rather well preserved in a secret Nazi underground laboratory only discovered mere months ago. There was a media cover-up due to the secrecy of the experiments that were paranormal in nature. Unholy experiments dabbling in immortality! Records indicate that the loyal Nazi scientists wanted to grant Adolph Hitler eternal rule over Germany, and the world. They had a diabolical plan to not only make him immortal but also imbue him with the full range of psychokinetic powers all humans have in latent form within their junk DNA (Develop PSI Powers). That would have made him an unstoppable God! The world could have easily plunged perilously into terrifying tyranny! Thankfully the war ended before their plans came to frightening fruition… Read The Rest Of The Story On Our Supernatural Stories Blog…🧟♂️
