Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • I was nicer to the old man the week before I killed him than ever before.
  • Climax
  • But his eye always bothered me. It was the eye of a vulture. It stared straight into my soul.
  • Falling Action
  • I watched him every night for seven nights.
  • Resolution
  • I confess to killing him! Here is his body, under the floorboards!
  • I killed the old man and cut off his limbs.
  • Police officers came, a neighbor having heard the shriek, to check out what happened. They believed my lie and I invited them in to check out the house. We relaxed in the bedroom of the old man.
  • I confessed to the police because I was sure they heard the old man's heart and I felt and feel they were mocking me.
