In Berlin, after World War II, money was short, supplies were tight, and it seemed like everyone was hungry. At that time, people were telling the tale of a young woman who saw a blind man picking his way through a crowd. The two started to talk. The man asked her for a favor: could she deliver the letter to the address on the envelope? Well, it was on her way home, so she agreed.

She started out to deliver the message, when she turned around to see if there was anything else the blind man needed. But she spotted him hurrying through the crowd without his smoked glasses or white cane. She went to the police, who raided the address on the envelope, where they found heaps of human flesh for sale.

And what was in the envelope? “This is the last one I am sending you today.”

      basically the blind man was sending her to a house where a person skins the people and sells the skins and the letter said this is your last victim for today.

      the people at the house were killing people the ‘blind’ man sent them and selling their flesh because there wasnt enough food to go around. when she saw he wasnt blind she went to the police, otherwise she’d have been chopped up next.

    Smart, and creepy. This is even creepier because of the fact that i’m alone in my house, it’s raining, it’s 1am, and I’m listening to “One of These Days” and Grindcore metal.

    Good one, such stories were also said of post-war Japan with the Yakuza running human flesh markets.

      It meant that the address on the envelope was a human flesh market, so when she got there, she would have gotten skinned and her flesh sold.

      I’m relatively new to this site just discovering it two days ago (forgive me creepy pasta fans) and I find it enthralling how people dont understand simple stories … What really gets to me though is when the story was explained in a recent comment -_-

    Explanation- “This is the last one I am sending you today.” The note is talking about the woman. Food shortage means no normal foods we eat. Apparently someone was resorting to cannibalism, and the old “blind” (he wasn’t really blind) man was helping to get people to go to them.

      Well the man was actually sending people to this place so that they could get killed, skinned, stripped of their meat and sold on the market as "Pork" because pork is the closest similarity texture and taste to human flesh.

          It’s actually true, I saw it on a documentary about famous cannabilists. They interviewed about 2, and one said that human flesh, no matter how it is…”cooked” tastes like burnt pork. Fun Fact of the day :D

    @Hot Sauce
    The man isn’t blind. He asked her to send the letter so that the people in the address can kill her and offer her for sale as food. The letter was a trick to make people go there. The woman found out that he wasn’t blind, so she called the cops, they discovered heaps of human flesh for sale. They sell humans because “it seemed like everyone was hungry.”

    Anything else you can’t understand?

    The basic story here (stranger asks person to deliver letter, letter turns out to be a request to get the messenger killed/devoured, letter gets intercepted and protagonist is saved) is one that shows up in folktales from all over. In Japan it’s usually a kappa or a water spirit sending a meal to a relative in another pond, who then gets tricked into giving up some magical treasure. VERY OLD CREEPYPASTA.

    It’s true, or so the book claims – go back and check your copy.
