It's October, and it's beginning to feel like Fall around here. I've been doing a fun Spooky Stories series on here for several years now, and in 2011, I dedicated a series of posts on the Black Eyed Kids.
The Black Eyed Kids is a new phenomenon, making the rounds on the internet message boards in the late 90s. But interestingly, stories continue to pour in from all over the world. I'm sure a bunch of them are hoaxes, but there are others by very credible people telling eerily similar stories.
Their encounters always include one or more children or teens with strange black eyes. Absolutely no sclera (the white of your eyes), iris, or pupil. Just large pools of black eyes like freakin' aliens. They knock on your door and ask to come in. They might ask to use your phone to call home.
These weird kids also seem to be dressed in outdated clothing. And they seem polite. I mean, who would be so cruel as to turn away from a child in need? But for some strange reason, the people who open their doors to these B.E.K.s all experience a feeling of dizziness and a deep, dark foreboding like they are about to die.
Every single story I've ever read ended the same way: they never let these demon-kids in. Thank Thor they all listened to their instincts and kept their doors shut. What's really weird is that the B.E.K.s NEVER force their way in. You must give them permission to enter, which kinda reminds me of the vampire mythology.
But earlier this year, there was one story where a person actually let these Black Eyed Kids in, and he lived to tell his story. And here it is:
I was sitting in my bedroom at home when I heard a knock on the door, it was not too late so I didn’t hesitate opening the door to whoever it was. when I opened it there was two children standing there, both were looking at the floor. “Yes,” I said. The taller one asked if they could come in as they were lost and the other boy needed the toilet. I live in an area where it is very easy to get lost, so I just assumed that they were telling the truth and was looking down because they were shy, even though the one talking, spoke very confidently. So I let them in. The one who needed the toilet just walked in and straight up the stairs, so I shouted up, "its on the right." I told the other one that the phone was down the hall. “Thanks,” he said, and he started to walk down the hall. I followed him, and then I suddenly came over with a really awful feeling like something bad was going to happen. I became very nervous and a bit shaky. I still can't explain how that happened. The boy stopped at the phone and paused. “Everything OK?” I asked. He turned to me and looked up, and that’s when I saw his eyes. Trust me, I will never get that picture out of my head. I was so scared that I couldn’t even scream. As I turned to run down the hall the other kid was standing at the end. I became very dizzy and struggled to stand up. He walked closer to me and said that they had been sent to collect me. I still couldn’t bear to look into his face. I pushed away from him and ran into my front room and slammed the door shut. I was in so much shock about what was happening,I couldn’t think straight. I finally got the courage to make a run for the back door, so I ran to it and unlocked it. I ran to the back of my garden and jumped over the fence not once looking back. My friend lived close so I ran to his house. I told him the story and as I guessed he was a bit skeptic about what I had said. I convinced him to come back with me, when we got there we looked around the whole house but couldn’t find them. Ever since this happened I always have a dream that this kids with the black eyes stand over my bed with there hands stretching to me. I hope to god that I never see these kids again.
What the hell does that mean, they came to collect him? That's messed up. So if you hear a knock at your door, check their eyes. If they are all black, as dark as the night, don't open your door. It just might be the last thing you do.
