There is a new urban legend that has been circulating in schools all over Spain. In whispers and rumors, people are talking about a strange website called “The Blind Maiden”. This legend is almost totally unknown outside of Spain. It was brought to my attention by a Spanish friend of mine.
They say that most of the time, the website is offline and you cannot access it, no matter how hard you try. However, according to the rumor, there are three rules you must obey in order to access the website.
- You must be all alone.
- You must turn off all the lights in your house.
- You must go to the website at exactly midnight on a moonless night.
If you satisfy all of these conditions, you will apparently be granted access to The Blind Maiden site.
Once inside, your eyes will immediately be assailed by a never-ending montage of shocking of screaming faces. The pictures are of boys and girls, their faces are twisted in tremendous fear, their mouths frozen in a silent scream. Their eyes are missing. The pictures are displayed quickly, flashing up onscreen one after the other, with no explanation.
According to the legend, some lines of Spanish text will appear on the screen. Roughly translated, the text reads something like this:
''This website will take you to a whole new level of horror. A horror that will use all five of your senses. You must be very careful not to click on anything by accident. You will be faced with a real experience of absolute horror. Click the accept button to engage actively in the experience.”
Below the text are two buttons, “Accept” and “Decline”.At this point you probably be very curious. You probably find yourself tempted to click the “Accept” button. Don’t. If you accept the challenge you will only be taking your life in your hands. Click “Decline” and stay safe.
This is what is supposed to happen if you click the button and accept the challenge:To your surprise and horror, you observe on your monitor a sinister silhouette walking… towards your own home! You want to wake up. You want this to just be a nightmare. You watch as the spectre approaches and enters the same room where you are sitting You will see, on your monitor, your own back … Then you will feel a presence behind you… You will feel a tap on your shoulder The last thing you see before you die will be the face of the blind maiden, staring mercilessly at you with her horrible eyes According to what been able to research, they say the blind maiden will rip out your eyes and take a snapshot of your face so that you will forever be a part of the websites picture gallery. Are you willing to take the risk. The choose is yours.
As I said earlier, I found out about the Blind Maiden website from a friend of mine who lives in Spain. I don’t know whether or not this urban legend is true. As far as I know, the legend is currently unknown outside of Spain. Honestly, I have not yet attempted to find the website. Yes, I admit it. I am too afraid… but I will pass the challenge on to you. Do you dare to check? Is the urban legend true or false? Simply a harmless collection of images and web pages, or a horrible reality? Here is a rough English translation of a comment from a Spanish boy who claims to have accessed the Website: Maiden Blind or Blind Maiden or La doncella ciega or El ciego de soltera. Whatever you want to call it, this urban legend is real and I almost suffered the consequences of messing with that crazy site. The story is that there is a webpage which you can only enter if you are totally alone, with all the lights off in your home at exactly midnight. After that, whatever you do, don’t click where it says “Accept the challenge” because when you do this you will die… probably within minutes. I didn’t take this advice. I did the opposite and totally accepted the challenge. Right at that moment I clicked the button, everything I saw on the screen became so real. I saw a shadow walking towards a place that seemed to be my home and I saw it walk to where I was. Paralyzed by fear, I could not move a muscle. Then it came to the door and began to open it. Right then I turned around and saw the door behind me opening, and then I see this face that was indescribable, but it had no eyes! Then it came closer and I heard it whispering something I could not understand and this face changed and became gruesome and with an expression of terror I will never forget. I ran with everything I could and I tripped over something on the floor and I hit the edge of my study table and I fell unconscious. It seems she must have thought I was dead because thanks to that I survived. Never again in my life will I play with the supernatural and I’ll never underestimate its power.
