The Blue Face is a scary story for children about a young girl whose father gives her a strict warning after her mother dies. It is based on an urban legend from Russia.
Once, there was a young girl who lived with her Dad and her little brother. Her mother had recently died and the family was still grieving.
The father had to go to work, which meant the girl had to stay in the house and take care of her little brother.
As he was leaving, her father warned her not open the door to anyone, especially if it was a man with a blue face.
Later that day, while her Dad was at work, there was a knock at the door. Forgetting what her father had said, the girl opened the door and saw a man standing outside.
The man was red in the face.
“What do you want?” asked the girl.
“Young girl, let me in,” said the man. “I can bring your mother back to life, but in return, you must give me your brother.”
The girl refused and shut the door in the man’s face.
A few hours later, there was another knock on the door. When the girl opened it, she saw a man with a purple face standing on the threshold.
“Young girl, let me in,” said the man. “I can bring your mother back to life, but in return, I will take your father.”
The girl refused and slammed the door shut.
That evening, when her father returned from work, the girl told him that a man with a red face came to the door, followed by a man with a purple face.
Her father became very angry and said, “I thought I told you not to open the door to anyone.”
The next day, as the father was leaving for work, he warned her again not open the door to anyone, especially if it was a man with a blue face.
A few hours after her father had gone, there was another knock at the door. The girl looked through the peephole in the door and saw a man with a blue face standing there.
“Young girl, let me in,” said the man. “I can bring your mother back to life and I will not take your brother or your father.”
The girl was delighted and opened the door.
The blue-faced man came in and said:
“…but I’ll take you!”
In the evening, when the father returned home, he saw the front door was standing open and there was a large blue spot on the floor. The girl and her little brother were missing.
The Dad took a can of kerosene and poured it on blue spot. Then he lit a match and set it on fire. The spot immediately broke out in a blue flame and he heard terrible cries of pain.
The house burned down and the girl’s father bought a train ticket and permanently moved to another city in Russia.
