A guest post from an old friend, G. Michael Vasey, author of Inner Journeys and The Last Observer and with whom I worked on The Mystical Hexagram. Gary’s work has taken him down some strange highways…
It is the story of a strange encounter that is repeated over and over by hundreds, if not thousands, of people all over the world. It is late at night and there is a knock at your door. You answer it to find a couple of small kids stood on your doorstep. The kids seem to be dressed in strange, sometimes old-fashioned, clothes but the strangest part is why would two young kids be on your doorstep at 11pm at night? Initially, you are concerned. Have they been in a car accident? Where are their parents? Then, you feel a deep seated and inexplicable fear arise from deep within your soul.
“Let us in,” says one of the small children.
By now, every instinct in your body is telling you to slam the door shut. The fear is overwhelming. But, fear of what? Two small kids?
“Let us in, we need to use your phone,” says the kid in a monotone almost hypnotic voice.
There you are on the one hand overwhelmed by a terrible sense of danger and yet, you feel yourself being sucked in wondering why such small children are on your doorstep.
“Let us in. You have to give us permission,” says the kid again insistently.
You begin to open the door as the kids step forward. The fear reaches its maximum as you see their eyes for the first time in the light of your hallway. They are totally and utterly black.
You slam the door shut and bolt it and head inside. You are shaking in terror, haunted by those soulless eyes and the hypnotic effect of the monotone voice. The knocking grows louder and louder until, all of a sudden, it stops. Carefully, you overcome the fear just enough to peek outside through the window. The kids have gone.
You had a lucky escape.
Who are the Black-Eyed kids and what do they want? What might happen if you let them in? G. Michael Vasey attempts an answer in his investigation of the Black-Eyed Kids – out now on Kindle.
Growing up can be extremely tough for any kid, but imagine growing up around poltergeist activity and ghosts? G. Michael Vasey had exactly that kind of childhood, experiencing ghosts, poltergeists, and other strange and scary supernatural phenomena. In fact, he seemed to attract it, developing an interest in the occult and supernatural at an early age and he has been fascinated ever since.
