Bad Neighbor

One calm, cool day in the middle of Autumn, a woman got up early to cook breakfast for her husband and two sons. After they had eaten, the father announced that he was taking his eldest son hiking in the woods behind their house. They also planned to do some fishing in the river that flowed through the heart of the dense forest.

The youngest boy wanted to go too, but his father said he was still too young to accompany them . Instead, he told him he would have to stay behind and help his mother in the kitchen. The boy was very disappointed but he obeyed his father and did not complain.

The Curse of Colonel Buck

Colonel Buck was not what you'd call the most virtuous man in town. He had an eye for the ladies and he would chase them until he got what he wanted. Then he would drop them like a hot brick.

Well, Colonel Buck had a pretty maid working for him. It wasn't long before he started noticing her and she, poor girl, started looking back. One thing led to another and one day, Colonel Buck turned out his pretty maid, seeing as she was unmarried and in the family way.

The Lost iPhone

I found this article on this creepy phone filled with horrific photos. This is an article by Rona Vaselaar and it was so creepy that I just had to share it. It is best to keep in mind that this isn't a true story and is for entertainment purposes only, and it is not an actual Urban Legend. However, it will make you think twice about what is truly hidden inside a lost phone and the impact it may have on you. Enjoy.

It was sitting beside the curb outside my apartment. A white iPhone 4S in surprisingly good condition. I scooped it up from the ground to get a closer look. It probably belonged to a high school girl, judging by the horrendously glittering purple case. I admired the phone anyway – tacky though the case was, it had protected its charge fairly well. The phone had not only survived what I assumed was a fall from a careless girl’s book bag, but it was in pristine condition. No hairline cracks, no dings, no dents… nothing.

The Black Kimono

One day in Japan, a man wanted to meet up with a girl he had gone to school with named Asako. They arranged to meet a popular location in Tokyo. But, on the day they were to meet, he waited for a few hours. Asako never showed up. He thought she may have forgotten or that it was the wrong day, he went home.

He called her that night and she was mad at him for not showing up. She had been at the meeting place on time, but they had missed each other. It was kind of strange, but Tokyo was big and the meeting spot busy, so the two laughed and made plans to meet at a smaller train station outside of the city.

The Boy with the Brass Buttons

Years ago, there was an old-fashioned house in Stuyvesant Square. It had been vacant for a while, but in 1883, winter had settled on the city. A father bought the house and moved into it with his wife and daughter. They decided that the house needed to be renovated to better suit their needs. Years before, the attic of the house had been made into a playroom years before, so they sent their six-year-old to go play while the work took place on the floors below.

After a few weeks, the rooms were almost finished, giving the mother time to play with her daughter. However, despite this, the child kept sneaking up to the attic to play. Eventually, her mother asked her why.

Seventh of the Seventh

Both above are modern examples of the legend of the seventh son of the seventh son. But what is the seventh son of the seventh son and what is it supposed to represent?

The seventh son of the seventh son is a concept from folklore regarding special powers given to or held by such a son. He must come from an unbroken line of sons. Meaning, no girls can be born before him. For a seventh daughter of the seventh daughter, the concept is the same, but no boys can be born before her. Any of the opposite sex being born anywhere in the line makes everything null and void.
