Black Eyed Children
Since Brian's encounter, countless other stories like this have peppered the Internet. One story I read on the Internet was told by a young man who skateboarding in the dark. He was approached by two young children who claimed they were lost and asked if he could take them to his house and let them use his phone. He offered his cell phone, but the children insisted they use his home phone. The young man noticed the children's eyes and asked them why they were wearing contacts. He then declined the children and went home on his own. He was scared of the children and wanted nothing more to do with them. When he looked out his window later that night, the two children were still watching him from the front yard. Another story was told by a woman who was awoken in the middle of the night by two children asking for help. They wanted to use the phone to call their parents. The woman was overwhelmed by fear and didn't let the children in, but they stayed at her door for hours begging and pleading.
These Black Eyed Kids or BEKs have stayed on the fringes of the paranormal and have remained so because no one really knows what to make of them. Some people believe BEKs are part of an elaborate Internet hoax and that those telling the stories speak out on the Internet as part of this hoax. There are others that believe the BEKs are the ghosts of lost children who wander the earth searching for safety. Others believe they are lost souls trying to gain entrance to our lives. Another theory states that the BEKS are demons trying to con their way into people's lives and yet another theory says they are vampires, who must get permission before entering to feed on their victims. A final group of people argue that BEKS are the product of some bizarre alien human mating. Whatever the truth is, the stories about these phantom, black eyed horrors are enough to send chills down your spine on the warmest nights.
