Moon Face

The Moon Face is a creepy story for kids that is based on old Irish superstitions about the lunar cycle and the face of the moon.

Moon Face

Many years ago in Ireland, there were a lot of superstitions about the moon. People used to believe that it was bad luck to see the full moon reflected in a mirror. It was even worse luck to stare at the moon through the branches of a tree. The worst luck of all was if the light of the full moon was shining on your face as you slept. If this happened, it meant that you were going to die.

There was a young Irish girl who had her own bedroom. She needed a place to keep her makeup and jewelry, so her mother gave her an old wooden cabinet. On the inside of a cabinet door, there was a mirror. The mother told the girl that she should always shut the door of the cupboard at night. The girl usually took her mother’s advice, but sometimes she would forget.

One night, when she got into bed, she forgot to close the cabinet door. During the night, she woke up because something was shining in her eyes. When she looked around, she saw that the cabinet door was standing open and she could see the reflection of the moon in the mirror. It was shining through the branches of a tree outside.

The girl was just about to get out of bed and close the cabinet door, when she suddenly noticed something strange about the moon. In the mirror, it looked as if the moon had a face. It resembled the face of a dead man, all yellow and rotten with spots and pock-marks all over it.

The girl was frightened and covered her head with a blanket. When she dared to peek out again, the moon had returned to normal. SHe breathed a sigh of relief and turned over to go to sleep.

Just then, there was a rustling noise at the foot of her bed. The girl sat up and was horrified to see a dead man standing in her bedroom. His face was round like the moon and his flesh was hanging off, revealing the misshapen skull underneath. He grabbed the little girl by the toes and started dragging her out of bed. She struggled and kicked, but it was no use. He pulled her into the mirror and closed the cabinet door behind him.

In the morning, when the girl’s mother came into the bedroom to wake her, there was nobody there. The mother searched all over the room for her daughter and when she opened the old wooden cabinet, she found that the mirror was spattered with blood.

  • this is an interesting story! i dont know why the moon is shining? like HELLO do you know how to write stroies?

  • beiberzmyne your story is simaliar to blind woman but a really good one I did your riddle BTW

    Once there was a girl named Amy who was home alone and watching tv in the living room. She suddenly heard the phone ring and when she picked it up, someone she had not not heard of before said…”I’m the lady with the bloody finger and i’m in your street….”The phone suddenly hung up and the girl was scared. She looked out of her window to see nothing but litter scattered all over her street. She was a bit worried but instead just sat back down in her seat to carry on watching tv. 2 minutes later the phone rang again and the same women had said…”I’m the lady with the bloody finger and i’m outside your door…” the phone once again hung up. She did not DARE to look outside so instead she ran upstairs to her room, locked her door and climbed under the bed duvet. Instead of the phone ringing she heard the same voice softly saying…”I’m the lady with the bloody finger and i’m inside your house…” Thirty seconds later, she heard it say, “I’m the lady with the bloody finger and i’m outside your bedroom door…” The girl got really freaked out and then the voice said “I’m the lady with the bloody finger and I can see you…” She was so scared! The lady then said “I’m the lady with the bloody finger…and I have a knife!” The girl was on the verge of screaming but she took off the covers and saw her mom with the bloody finger. She was confused because her mom had died 2 years ago. She didn’t have the time to react because all of a sudden she heard her mom say. “Finally, after 2 years we can finally be together.Before she could react, her mom stabbed her in the chest and she died almost instantly. Both mom and daughter’s spirits wander happily ever after.
