Rumor has it that every Halloween during the hours of 2am and 5am, there exists a void. You must stand in front of a mirror in a pitch black room with your gaze fixated on the mirror. If you remain in the room when the moment arrives, you will feel a chill seize your body. Place your right hand on the mirror and whisper “I accept.” If done correctly, in the mirror, there will be a faint image of an infant with no flesh and pitch black eyes. He will stare directly into your soul and you will hear the buzzing of flies and nervous whispering.

You will not be able to make out the image in the mirror, but you will be filled with unspeakable terror. The infant will ask you five questions about events that have occured within your life. His voice will sound like the rubbing of sandpaper and will be devoid of all human emotion. For each question that you answer incorrectly, one of your five senses will be consumed and lost to you forever. For each question that is answered correctly, you will be able to recite the name of someone you know.

That person will be found dead the next morning with their flesh removed and their eyes missing.

    Why would I want to risk my five senses in a petty attempt to kill others. It’s selfish, or desperate. It’s kinda stupid.

    But, of course, I mean absolutely no offense to the writer of this story, I would just like him/her to know that if their creepypasta features a deal/exchange with some unknown paranormal force and/or satanic demon, the deal has to have a benefit. Here, you either lose your five senses, or kill people you know. I don’t see why I would summon the demon in the first place.

    Well, it’s not just people you know as friends, persay…

    Would you risk this to kill, for example, Osama Bin Laden? This could be useful, if you knew people. Or I could be getting it wrong, in which case I’m agree with you.

    Seems like a good deal, considering the questions are about yourself you should be able to answer.

    it DOES say people that you KNOW, not people that you know about. for instance, i dont think that George Bush or Osama Bin Laden count.

    this sounds a little too similar to bloody mary though. THat legend sounds scary!

    This story made me laugh.
    Baby: *in a Darth Vader voice* What is the date of your birth?
    Me: Umm… er… 1988?
    Baby: Incorrect.
    Me: What did you say?

    AUGH. This was the second creepypasta I ever read. I never thought I could be spooked out by something so much, that is, until I was up late one night and couldn’t bring myself to look in the mirror, for fear of eyeless demon-babies.

    Jeez, what a coward I am.

    well, a bunch of you assume you remember everything about your life perfectly. what if he asks you something you can’t remember correctly, or that you tried to bury out of mind, or replaced with subtly different memories? very few people have perfect memory, and therefore this could be a hard challenge. also, what about if he asks you to recite things from dreams you had years ago or something? you’d totally lose a sense. worst case scenario, your first sense to go would be hearing, and you’d automatically fail the other four senses.

      For instance, he could ask you “What EXACTLY were you wearing at your 3rd birthday party?”

    Also, people you know can be complete assholes. I would possibly do this if I was, you know, like, on the brink of suicide because my boss was a evil evil man.

    So I have to risk one to five of my senses just to kill some asshole I could drive across town and kill with a lead pipe? I mean, what if the baby asks you about shit that happened when you were a baby? Or asleep? Now that asshole is still alive and you can’t see, hear, smell, feel or even taste him as he fucks your girlfriend. Nice.

    *head explodes*

    This features the worst first sentence of most of the creepypastas out there, in my opinion. “There exists a void”? What? Where? Why is this not actually referenced again?

    I tried this.. But..

    I seriously couldn’t tell ya if it works. See, I had all my lights turned off, right? When I lifted my hand, I so totally couldn’t see, misjudged the distance and punched my mirror out. Had to get stitches. It sucked.

    How would you know if you went blind if the room was black? Or see the baby or the “Unspeakable Terror”. Also, how would you know the questions if he took your hearing?

      Wow, the Dark Brotherhood. All the way from Tamriel, just to screw up a bunch of people. Sounds rather good a plan for business.
      So long as they leave advertising such as the Black Hand or maybe a poster with their phone number, e-mail address and post address.

    lol at last comment.
    It reminds me of Death Note. You probably have to know a little bit about the person for it to work.
