The Mysteries of Kingsport – Hail Cthulhu!!

She had walked down to the water to check out the strange sound while awaiting a ship to take her from the cursed place. But as the sound grew louder, she became faint and collapsed. So easily forgotten, laying upon the sand, her mind was caught up in a dreamlike state while her body convulsed. Tentacles, that sound, and a darker side to the town now appearing to her ill begotten mind.

  There was a small boy beckoning people to a strange circus, a bit macabre with large statues of strange creatures.
She even saw tentacles reaching out to her in the dream, beckoning to her, and stepping closer, she succumbed to their embrace.

How long she would lay there was anyone’s guess, what happened remained a mystery and would probably never be solved.

And just what was happening in the town cemetery? Was all of this real or part of a very ill woman’s dream?

 In her dreams, she saw herself walking about the town. Pale and freckled, nothing unusual there was first.
(The skin that I am wearing with the ohhh so adorable freckles is Raquel, freckled version in apricot, by 7 Deadly s{K}ins. She is a Lelutka based skin that includes a Lelutka mesh head applier modeled after the Lelutka Simone head (worn here with the Stella head), in 6 skin tones. This is also available in a separate box containing the same tones in plain version. Also available for purchase is the fantastic shape to go with it!

Suddenly feeling weary within that dreamlike state, she envisioned herself settling onto a bench as a transformation began to take place..

The Mysteries of Kingsport -The Asylum

As I entered the building, it was eerily quiet, no sound was heard, nothing at all. I slowed my step and took the time to peek around each and every corner making sure the coast was clear before entering each room. ‘Where was everyone?’, I thought to myself. What had happened here?

As I entered the next room I did see something that caught my eye. Perhaps this was a dream and soon I would wake. As I drew a bit closer, I saw what I thought was an elephant standing on a ball riding it around, and a monkey on a bike with what appeared to be a gentleman or ringmaster standing close by. Was this real? Or was it a painting behind a glass to appear this way?

 The next corner I went around had busted down doorways leading to where I knew not, Some were completely destroyed while others appeared to be plainly opened and left that way. The farther I went down the hallway the more I saw things that started to make the hair on the back of my neck stand up while feeling like someone or something was either watching or following me.

While rounding the next corner I came across a room that was completely covered in blood. It looked like some sort of ritual or murder scene from one of those shows that make you curl up then have nightmares after going to bed. Blood was everywhere! Tables were overturned and nothing else was in the room not even a weapon.

 

Slowly I kept going until I reached the main office where my uncle was supposed to be working. This room appeared at first glance as if nothing was wrong, but, there was still no one around, No sounds, nothing at all. And nothing was out of place or so it seemed.

Stumbling to gather my thoughts, I sat down in a chair and looked at the desk across from me. There were a few notes scribbled on the paper. Should I read them? Should I dare to have a look for myself? These thoughts kept racing through my mind like a train on a runaway down a mountain. It was after reading a hastily scribbled note in my uncle’s own hand, that I knew I had to get out of this town and right away! What happened here?
Without wasting anymore time, I ran straight down the streets and towards the docks in hopes of finding room on a ship to sail on to another port. I found nothing but silence, ships had run aground and there was a complete lack of activity down here. But, that sound, was loud enough to make my head hurt! Covering my ears, I proceeded down towards the water, if I was to be stuck here, I may as well try to find out what the noise was…

The Mysteries of Kingsport – The Arrival Part 1

I arrived at the town square as dusk was settling over the area. Not a soul in sight but that strange sound was growing louder the closer I got to the water. I decided to avoid the docks for a bit and have a look about. There had to be someone here, or did the town literally roll it’s streets up at night?

I stopped by the library and noticed the new strange decor within. But, with a shrug of my shoulders, went over to the bookshelves and perused the offerings there. My gaze settled upon a book with a worn leather cover, it appeared to be a seaman’s journal. Odd, why would it be here in a public library? I lifted it from the shelf and after signing the check out form, made my way back out into the streets.

My next stop was the souvenir shop, surely someone would be about? To my surprise, there was a very old woman here, who grinned and showed gaping teeth. She seemed friendly enough. though a little bit creepy in her demeanor. I picked out a few items and placed those as well in my pack along with the book. I wondered if there was anything happening over at the opera house tonight.

 

Though the theatre was bare, I was able to find the list of entertainment that would be happening soon Oh! Even some more later tonight! This made me happy and I picked up my steps with a little bounce to it and decided to go visit my uncle over at the sanitarium,

I always found it strange that the sanitarium was one of the bigger buildings in the town, were there really that many deranged folks here? I had heard rumors of one of the more prominent families falling ill by some unknown sickness. Mr Miller and his daughter both perished amidst lunatic ravings and seizures that could not be stopped. Rest their souls wherever they are at now.

I stepped into the garden and towards the open doors.Wait, why were they open? That was not something my uncle would ever allow. Each entrance had a special alarm to keep the patients within, so to have an open door was truly odd. With a bit of trepidation, I stepped into the dim interior of the building. What greeted me was completely unexpected and panic hit as bile rose in the back of my throat…to be continued..

 

Tonight, August 17th,  Love Fest opens and remains open until August 27th.! A world of wonder celebrating the 127th birthday of H.P. Lovecraft.

High Society

The Miller family were high society, aristocrats and deeply immersed into the political scheme of things. When Mr Luden Miller returned from time out at sea, he brought home some oddly decorated furniture. His family, demurely accepted his need to have it in the house, chalking it up to the strange temperament of a sea captain.
It began a few days after his return, the man was bed bound, suffering seizures and screaming nonsense. His wife was beside herself and didn’t know what to do, and as the best doctors in the city were up in his room examining their patient, the youngest of the daughters wandered downstairs. She was curious about the new furnishings and tried to make sense of the strange drawings upon them. A small piece of paper, caught in between the drawers drew her attention and as she reached for it, she noticed a strange and eerie sound. Turning to look in the direction it came from, she stood frozen in place as large tentacles appeared to be reaching out of the fireplace. Slumping down to the ground, she lost consciousness as her brother rushed in and called for a doctor…

Cthulhu Calls

A strange fog had rolled inland at our new home some time in the night. Not the usual ocean fog but something eerie, which caused the tiny hairs along the back of my neck to raise. Oh sure, we were told all the local superstitious nonsense about squid people and disappearances, but knew that was simply tall tales to keep the strangers away. I heard a strange sound that I couldn’t even dare pronounce down at the water’s edge and I pressed against the glass of our bedroom window, trying to see what was happening down below. There appeared to be movement around the ruins on our land and as the moon shown upon the stones, I could see that the waters appeared to have overcome some of the ground during the course of the night. So, we were getting a bit of a small flood, nothing appeared to be directly affected though and besides, the sun was still hours away from rising and the fog did not appear to be going anywhere. So I decided that in the sense of no obvious danger, it could wait and we would investigate further in the morning.
Returning back to the warm comfort of my bed, I turned on my side and soon fell asleep. The tentacles reaching up from some dark deep place passed by without notice as my beloved and I slept. What would the morning bring upon waking?
