Mr. White invited Stg. Major Morris over. Mrs. White, Herbert, and Mr. White were all sitting in the living room. Then Stg. Major Morris came.
When Stg. Major Morris came Mr. White introduced his family to him. He tells the family a story about the monkey's paw. The family thinks that Stg. Major morris isn't being serious and that he is lying.
Mrs. White wants her son back after it has been 10 days since he had passed. She wants Mr. white to make another wish for her son to come back but Mr. white was trying to tell her that there are going to be consequences to what you wish for. Mr. White made the wish and knocking was at the door. Mr.White last wish was to send Herbert back to his grave.
The knocking stops. Mrs.White opens the door. A cold wind rushed up the staircase.
There is nothing at the door just a deserted street. The paw can't cause more harm. Mr. and Mrs. White had something for Herber since he had passed away.
Stg. Major morris said, "Don't blame me for what happens." He was meaning the consequences that he would get when he wishes for something. Mr. White wished for 2 pounds and the consequence was that his son had to die and they got the 2 pounds.
