The Little Deaf Boy

Name: Jennifer Briggs 17th July 2013
incorrect gramma
Name: J. 23rd July 2013
Not to be a Debbie downer, but... If the boy couldn't hear the demon he couldn't hear the other two men. It's a cute story though.
Name: Taylah 21st October 2013
It's cool... but incorrect grammar and how come if the boy is deaf, he could hear the other two men? This story is based on the song La La La...
Name: ASD 19th June 2014
The boy did not hear them two men per-say but he was around them to understand what they were meaning and this isn't about the song this is about a folklore in the east about how when someone special is treated bad by the one(s) they love then they see them as demons and they look for people to help them free them but by doing so the child frees those people first
Name: ASD 19th June 2014

Name: Willow 24th August 2014
@Taylah, try the other way around. the myth was there before the song.

Nice story, reminds me of a song...
Name: Lukas 22nd February 2016
Daniel, the song "LA LA LA" is based on this legend. Only that the demon was already stone, but it could still curse people. After they found the demon, the boy said googbye to his friends and then would sing for eternity so the demon couldn't curse people longer.

He could of been able to lip read as the dancing man didn't realise he was deaf until the boy told him. So.....Logic
