Candle Face is Real, and She's Here to Help

Candle Face is Real, and She's Here to Help

March 11, 2024


Yesterday, I received an intriguing email from “Sammy,” who claims to talk with Candle Face by the creek—the very same location where Candle Face would attack me on my way to school. Sammy’s email described his unique, yet one-sided, dialogues with what he believes to be Candle Face, conducted during his regular walks with his dog. This creek, a recurring symbol in both Sammy’s story and my own experiences, seems to be a nexus of Candle Face’s presence. This is what he wrote in his email:


This is what he wrote in his email:


Hey Arthur,


For the purpose of this email, my name’s Sammy and I live near the creek where you say Candle Face hangs out. I’ve been reading your articles about her and, dude, I gotta say, I’m totally on board. I walk my dog, there every evening, and sometimes we just stop on the bridge. I kinda talk to her. I never hear her talk back or nothing, but I feel her answers in my gut.. Like this one time, I asked if she was sad, and the wind picked up real quick like she was saying, “Yeah, kinda.” Another time, I was super stressed about work, and I swear the water in the creek got all calm all sudden, like she was telling me to chill out.


I think it’s super cool you’re writing about her, Arthur. More people need to know she ain’t just some scary ghost – she’s got this kindness, man. Like, she really wants to help us out. I tell all my friends about her, trying to spread the word. Some think I’m just making stuff up, but others, they get real interested.


Now, here’s the crazy part I gotta tell ya. Last week, I was at the creek, and this shadow comes outta nowhere, right next to me while I’m talking to Candle Face. I don’t see this shadow any other time, just when I’m there talking about serious stuff, like asking Candle Face to help with with bullies. It’s like this shadow understands me and Candle Face? I got this weird feeling it’s Candle Face in another form, just checking in.


But hey, if you wanna use this in your blog or something, that’s cool with me. Just don’t put my email out there. It’s a fake one anyway, haha. We gotta keep spreading the word about her, showing people she’s not what they think.


Keep doing what you’re doing, Arthur. Candle Face needs more believers, and what you’re doing could really help her find peace or whatever it is she’s looking for. And maybe, just maybe, we can make our neighborhood a better place, knowing there’s someone like her watching over us.


Thanks for listening, man. And remember, not everything you hear about ghosts is meant to scare ya. Some of them, like Candle Face, they’re just misunderstood.


Later, Sammy

 

Sammy’s story deviates significantly from the unsettling stories that are our usual fare. Sammy’s account paints Candle Face not as a figure to be feared but as one deeply misunderstood, capable of empathy and interaction in her own mysterious ways.


I'm at a crossroads as the curator of these stories and investigations. On the one hand, Sammy’s story offers a perspective that could enrich our collective understanding of Candle Face. It adds layers to her story, prompting us to think more deeply about the entities we seek to understand. This story could shift perceptions and foster a deeper conversation about her and entities like her.


On the other hand, I’m reminded of my responsibility as an investigator committed to neutrality. My goal has always been to present information that’s as unbiased and factual as possible, allowing you, my readers, to draw your own conclusions. The scarcity of verifiable details on entities like Candle Face makes it challenging to present a balanced story grounded in evidence rather than swayed by anecdotes and personal beliefs.


The question arises: How do we navigate sharing compelling personal experiences like Sammy’s without veering into glorification or sensationalism? How do we respect the depth and sincerity of these encounters while maintaining the investigatory integrity of our work?


Perhaps the answer lies in creating a space for these personal stories, clearly framed as subjective accounts, alongside our usual investigations. This approach would allow us to explore the rich nature of experiences and beliefs surrounding local legends while staying true to our commitment to factual accuracy and neutrality.


I invite you to join me in this mission. How should we engage with and share these deeply personal stories? How can we honor the experiences of those like Sammy, who see in these entities not just subjects of fear but beings with their own stories without compromising the investigatory ethos of our community?


Your thoughts and insights on this matter would be greatly valued. As we navigate these complex stories together, let’s continue approaching each story with open minds and a dedication to understanding the truth in all its myriad forms.
