Black Eyed Kids

     Picture the young innocence of a child. A kid you know probably came to mind. A niece, nephew, that nice neighbor boy who always rides his Power Wheels up and down the street, maybe even a son or daughter. Black eyed children are much like the kid you have in mind, except instead of young innocence you get something much more sinister and dark. A corrupt, evil entity that takes the form of a kid, but with the deepest, darkest, most soulless eyes you will ever see. That is what a BEK is.
     1998 is the year when urban legends referring to Black Eyed Kids began to surface. A journalist by the name of Brian Bethel made a newsgroup posting reporting on his meeting with two unusually confident and eloquent children who attempted to talk him into giving them a ride in his car. Bethel said in his post that he nearly opened the door to admit the children, even though he found them vaguely unsettling, until he realized that their eyes were completely black, with no iris or pupil. He reports that, as soon as he realized this, the children became angry and insistent whereupon he drove away quickly. His posting implies that the children may have been using some form of low-level mind control to induce him to allow them entrance into his vehicle, perhaps a form of neurolinguistic programming judging by what is reported of their peculiar speech patterns and unusual diction.
      Since Bethel's posting, there have been other reports of similar occurrences in other parts of the country. These accounts are similar to Bethel's in that they generally involve the children's request that the teller let them inside their car or house, frequently using an excuse such as "I need to get home to my mother," or something that implies the child is in need.
     Tales involving the Black Eyed Children generally do not explain the cause of the kids' eye color or the origins of the children themselves. Some imply they could be ghosts or demons, specifically vampires: the tales frequently emphasize that the children must be admitted or invited into the house or car in question, and in this way are reminiscent of some vampire legends.
     
     Should you encounter one of these beings, do NOT permit them entrance. Politely decline and send them on their way. I can assure you their intentions are far from the best.
