I have just finished reading the stories about black-eyed people and had to share this. It was around March in 2003. I live in Adelaide, Australia and March is the beginning of fall, but the nights can still be quite warm.
I was working at a coffee shop in the city at the time and decided to walk home that night. It would take me 45 minutes to walk home but figured, what the hey.
I was about half way home and it was already dark. It would have been about 7 p.m. I was just walking past my local library when I noticed a homeless guy who I'd seen around our neighborhood the last few months. He was heading toward me up the sidewalk.
I knew I didn't like this guy because he was always grinning and staring at me and as I came closer, I made a point of avoiding eye contact. For some reason, as I was passing him, I looked up and into his eyes. They were completly black!
He was also grinning at me, all teeth bared, like I was a tasty meal, or that I was unaware of the best joke ever. I remember being shocked and scared and I raced home as fast as I could. I turned back once and he was just standing there staring after me. When I got home, I told my boyfriend, but he brushed me off. I don't know who or what this guy was, but I've never forgotten it and still feel scared when I think of it.
