Black eyed children or black-eyed kids is a contemporary urban legend that creeps me out a little bit more than let's say La Llorona, little kids are already creepy, a paranormal creature resembling children between the ages of 6-16 just terrifying.
Some reports of these creatures came in the 80s however they didn't become widespread until the Brian Bethel incident in 1996.
Brian Bethel is a journalist from Abeline Texas, one night he stopped in the parking lot of a movie theater to write a check. Two boys approached his car, he however was not paying attention to them until the oldest boy knocked on the driver's door window.
Bethel described having "soul wracking fear" he could not understand why he felt this way.
The oldest boy started to tell Bethel he and his brother were going to watch a movie, but they forgot their money and wanted for Bethel to give them a ride to go get it.
The boys assured Bethel that they were only boys, they didn't have any weapons and the ride wouldn't take long. Bethel noted that the last showing of the film they wanted to see had already started and would be nearly over by the time he could drive them anywhere and get back.
Bethel then describes he broke eye contact that's when he felt all-encompassing fear, that's when he noticed that their eyes were all black. Thats when the oldest boy started to get frustrated and wanted to get in the car but couldn't do it until Bethel invited them in, Bethel terrified tore out of that parking lot.
His story hasn't changed in 27 years, you can easily say he made it up, but to me its genuine for the fact that it precedes any creepypasta website and such and the fact that his encounter with BEK (Black-eyed kids) is not the only one.
The following account was from reddit.
On March 17, 2008 I had my one and only encounter with a black eyed kid. Before my experience i had never heard of anything having to do with the black eyed kids. I was 12. I was sitting outside of a hairdressers in a old Chevy pickup waiting for my mom to get her hair cut. About 15 minutes had passed and I saw some kid walking back and forth along the sidewalk in front of my parked car. At first I thought I recognized him as one of my friends from school so i banged on the front windshield until he looked my way. It was not anyone i knew. At this point I was not scared at all. Not yet. The boy walked over to the side of my care and just stares. I think to let me get a good look at his eyes. To freak me out. Let me tell you.. If you have never seen a black eyed kid.. you have no idea what to imagine. Pupils black as the night sky. The boy whispers “You must let me in” and then i locked the car doors and ducked down into the space below the seats. Five minutes later he was gone. When my mother got into the car she told me a boy with black eyes had came into the hairdressers had insisted for my mother to give him the keys to the car. She refused……thank God she did.
But what happens when you let them in?
Some report feeling like their soul gets eating away, other develop a type of cancer.
Those are only the reports of survivors.
So next time my dear reader you hear a knock in the door, and you have two children standing there asking to use your telephone, do not let them in, break eye contact, and shut the door whatever you do... do not let them in.
Have a wonderful night.
