Little Boy or Demon? You Tell Me

Posted on February 24, 2011

Some of you may have already read my story titled “Lady in Black“. This is my most personal and terrifying encounter I have ever had. I truly hope that no one goes through this situation ever in their life. This happened to me roughly about around the year 2006. I remember the day perfectly as if it were yesterday.

It was Halloween day and I was in my backyard doing laundry. We have our washing machine and drier safely stored in the garage, so my mom told me to do the laundry. The sun was bright and there were very few clouds, although the wind was a bit chilly. I was bored and hot inside the garage, so I went outside and sat on the swing my grandmother had bought. The swing was one of those that several people can sit on at one time, they kinda look like benches. I sat there and closed my eyes and simply listened to the sound of the wind and the birds.

When I reopened my eyes again out of the corner of my eye, I saw what appeared to be a young boy sitting on a tree stump. My uncle believed that the tree there was dangerous for the little kids so he took it down. I thought maybe I was just seeing things so I didn’t pay any attention to it and I shut my eyes again. Then quite literally out of no where the wind got more colder and quicker. I reopened my eyes and I turned to the right and I saw him he was young maybe about 8 years old. He was wearing blue ripped jeans and a very bright red shirt. Not only that, but he was staring right at me. I stared back at him, who was he? I didn’t recognize him from anywhere.

Then I felt the blood drain out of my face. My skin turned ice cold and I was frozen in absolute terror. I should have never looked at him. I should have ignored him and gone inside. His eyes! They were pitch black, darker than night, no white at all! They were almost cat like, not in a cute way though, it was in a sinister ‘I want to scratch your face’ way. And he was smiling at me as if he found my reaction amusing. I could feel a lump in my throat. I wanted to scream I wanted to run and leave, but for some reason I couldn’t. I have never been I scaredy cat. I don’t get scared that easily, but this was something that I had never dealt with before.

I don’t know how, but managed to find some courage inside of me and I said “who are you?” He merely smiled back and just like that he disappeared before my eyes. My heart was pounding so fast I thought I might actually have a stroke. I ran inside and I told my mom that I wasn’t going to do the laundry anymore. She asked me why. What could I say? Oh I can’t do it because I think I saw a demon in our backyard! No! She would never believe me. So I lied, I said to her that I was feeling ill and that I felt like puking. Which wasn’t exactly a lie because I did feel like vomiting. She told me to go lay down and rest that she would finish the laundry, I obeyed.

Nights after that I had nightmares and sometimes I would wake up screaming. I haven’t seen “the boy” to this day. I didn’t tell anyone because I knew they wouldn’t believe them. So tell me what do you think?

    Pretty creepy……you know, I have read about these all black pupil ‘kids’….you should try looking it up. I forgot what they had said about them, but there are many experiences had by the general public.

    I hope he never appears again too!

    Take care,


  2. MZ SPONTY says:

    So have U had any nightmares about the boy recently? & if so, how long ago?

  3. Rosie says:

    I believe what you said and what you saw, but I am not sure if the little boy is just a ghost or a demon. I’d say it is a ghost since he didn’t bother you after you saw him.

  4. J.J. says:

    im not sure if that was a demon or not, have you seen anything else at all? maybe not the boy but anything else? have you tried talking to your grandpa about him? i mean, who knows? maybe he’s seen something too? i think you should ask him

  5. Cole says:

    Fate can be cruel.

    Some of us see these things and know them to be true.

    Only a handful, that is.

    I believe you, and I am so -very- sorry that happened to you.

    I believe it was perhaps the fragments of a boy that was possibly hurt on the very tree your family had cutt down long ago.

    No one likes secrets….but I think that boy decided to spill the beans.

  6. lucy13 says:

    Actually, I have had recent dreams about him. I had one about two nights ago. In my dream he was chasing me and when he caught to me he said that the only way he would leave me alone was if I burned him. But his face was very ugly and scary almost cat like, the eyes were still the same though. When I woke up my heart was pounding and I was kinda panicking.

  7. lucy13 says:

    I had a recent discussion with my aunt about it. She is just like me she believes in the paranormal, but she never tells anyone about her experiences. She claimed that there is something strange about my occurence. She said that if it were a ghost, and it was trying to communicate. That it would probably try to communicate with me in other ways as well. She also said that demons like to scare people and since I like little kids. That was the method it used to frighten me. She told me that I probably shouldn’t go into the backyard alone anymore. Based on what we discussed, my aunt said that it was probably a demon. My question is, why me? I am a good person. I like to help people, I am very caring, I am also very forgiving, no matter what people do or say to me. I don’t even cuss or swear. So my huge question is, WHY?

  8. Austin says:

    I would say that something happened to him on that tree…..he said that he would only go away ifyou burn him….he may be buried under the tree…..I would say pour gas on the stump and burn it.

  9. trolldoll says:

    i like austin’s answer!

  10. weirdo says:

    i agree. demons do acknowledge the fact that people are frightened by them and they feed off of that and if you ag it on it only gets worse.

  11. porkenpeas says:

    I have heard numerous stories about the so-called “BEK (black-eyed kids).” Usually they’re described as asking to enter an individual’s car our house, and exerting a kind of hypnotic effect upon the victim in order to get them to comply. Extreme misfortune or even death is said to await the hapless victim who allows them inside, though I haven’t met anyone who can actually testify to this. Yours is the first story I’ve heard where the BEK hasn’t asked to come inside. The advice seems to be to send them away immediately to avoid harm.

    • lucy13 says:

      Porkenpeas, do you think I might be in danger? I haven’t seen him in a long time, but recently I have been having more dreams about him. Do you think it might be because I have told about my encounter with him?

      • porkenpeas says:


        Do you think that your dreams may have been brought on by your heightened conciousness of the past encounter after recounting your story?

        I’ve only heard anectdotal accounts of these beings. I’ve heard that they can be resisted successfully, if you do not allow yourself to be entranced by them. I don’t know of anyone who has come to great harm. I will be praying for your safety and for the end of this entity’s visitations.

  12. lucy13 says:

    I really don’t know what to do. I can’t even go into my backyard because i’m so afraid. I haven’t been back there in over four years.

  13. MZ SPONTY says:

    Have U looked in2 the history of Dat house & backyard of corse?

  14. Sharayah says:

    I’m thinking it sounds like a demon it’s seems to be evil like it want to scare you. And the dreams are not a good thing at all I would not take what it said to you at face value.you need to know what you are dealing with first. It good your aunt is on your side buy if I was you I would ask my mom how she feels about things that are paranormal. See what she things and then from there you would know if you can talk to her about what’s going on.do you pray or believe in God?you may need help to get it out your life as you can see it’s not leaving you alone and getting nasty about it with even more ugly faces. This thing is unclean and is for better words messing with you. Let us know how you are doing ;) may God be with you try the lords prayer befor you go to sleep.

  15. theresa says:

    i aggre with austin sometimes if a spirt is bothering u it could be ur by his death bed. and he can not leave till his at peace u should burn the stump and see if the boy is there

  16. lucy13 says:

    The stump is gone, but the nightmares continue.

    • MZ SPONTY says:

      I say find out the history 2 the house & yard & go from there. Knowing the history may give U a better understanding as 2 whats going on, I mean it doesn’t hurt to look in2 it.
