Father O’Reilly looked into some of the children’s eyes. He saw the usual looks of curiosity, fear of the unknown, and hopefulness for something better. One boy in particular, though, caught his trained eye. He looked to be eight to ten years old, but there was something peculiar about him. What was it? he thought. As his eyes met the young boy’s, it hit him. The boy had the most cold, piercing eyes he had ever seen. They were two brownish-black holes, the pupils imperceptible to the human eye. It was as if they could look right through you, with a devilishness to them that actually made him shudder. His last thought as he slowly turned his gaze away from the boy was that he had just been eye-to-eye with the devil himself.
