Do you believe in Black Eyed Kids?

Updated on April 16, 2012

Michael was home alone. Football, tea and his favourite biscuits. He was fairly happy with his own company.

Until he heard knocking on his door. Living in a small town means that your friends or even neighbours invite themselves for a tea anytime they feel like it. Michael went to the door and opened it.

To his surprise, there was a group of five kids. ,,Our ball fell on your garden, can we please come in and get it?’’ He’d never seen these kids around before, and their presence made him feel very uncomfortable. He felt frightened and he didn’t know the reason. ,,Let us in please..’’ the kids said again. He looked at them and his attention was drawn to the two kids in the back. Their eyes were black. No white corneas, just big,black eyes.

,,Why don’t I go and get it for you? Just wait here.’’

,,No, please, let us in and we will get it. ‘’

,,No, just wait here, I won’t be a second.’’

He closed the door. Michael then went in the garden, and there was no ball at all. He went back to the kids to tell them, but they were gone.

The first story of Black Eyed Kids was reported on January 16, 1998, by journalist Brian Bethel.

He was sitting in his parked car when two teenage boys knocked on his window. According to Brian, they had stylish clothes and olive skin. They asked for a ride home. He resisted the urge to allow boys in his vehicle. They kept insisting. That's when Brian saw their ''coal black'' eyes and got overwhelmed with fear. He exited the scene as quickly as possible.

There are many more people who say they've witnessed Black Eyed Kids.

You can be in your own house or waiting in your parked car. You can camp in the middle of nowhere. You are alone. And here they come. They knock and plea to come in. They are freezing and want to get warm. They don't have money and need to call their parents. They feel too weak and want a ride home.

They are just kids and maybe they really need your help. But only their presence gives you goose bumps. It's middle of the night and they are here, all by themselves. In a few moments you see their pitch-black eyes and you get momentarily paralyzed by fear. You are tempted to let them in, but you know you shouldn't. You feel your life is in danger. Why? How can kids hurt you? You don't know.

Black Eyed Kids might be demons, vampires, or just made up creatures. They might even be teens with awesome contact lenses who feel like scaring someone.

Whatever it is, whether you believe it or not, since we were little kids, our parents taught us not to talk to strangers. Don't let any kid in your house if you don't know them. Black eyed or the ones who look like angels. None. Listen to your instincts and take care of yourself.

      Ooh, very scary stuff! I don't honestly know what I'd do if said black-eyed child knocked on my door asking to come in. Whether it be for a ball, a ride or a cuppa sugar, the only thing with black-eyes I'd let into my house is a Panda. Or a Zebra. Probably both at the same time.

      But that's beside the point. Still scary! Voted up, Interesting and requested a "scary" button! ^^
