The Curse of the Monkey Paw
The Aftermatch of Wish 1
Sergeant Morris warns the White family about the Monkey Paw before he proceeds to give it to him. He says an old fakir put a curse on it show that fate ruined people lives. Mr. White didn't believe him and he still took the paw.
Herbert had many ideas of what to wish for first but after a couple ideas Herbert and Mr. White came up with the idea of using wish 1 to wish for 200 pounds. After making the wish nothing happened. So they waited and waited and nothing happened. A while later Herbert had to go to work.
Do you hear that?
A day later and Herbert never returned home. Mrs. White so happened to look out the window and see a man in front of the house. He walked around her house once more before coming up to the door. She quickly fixed up the living room before opening the door for him. Once he was in there he delivered the worst news a mother would want to hear. Her son died while on the job. The company didn't want any legal issue so they would pay the family 200 pounds.
About a week passed and Mrs. White was depressed. She could not get over the fact that her son was dead. It was bed time and Mr. White was just getting ready to fall asleep when Mrs. White forced him to a second wish. She made him go down too the basement to get the paw and wish her son back. When he did that nothing happened so he went back to bed.
When Mr. White was in bed he heard knocking on the door. He scared because he knew his wish came with a consequence and h didn't believe that that was his son. Mrs. White however was excited once she heard the knocking but Mr. White didn't want her to go open the door.
Before Mrs. White could rush to open the door for her son Mr. White ran to the basement. Once in the basement he made his third and last wish. His last wish was for the knocking to stop and when Mrs. White opened the door nobody was there. Therefore she broke down in tears and Mr. White was there for her.
