Why did I do that for I can still hear his heart beat
The narrator that had a disease took care of an old man that he loved. The old man had an evil eye that the narrator didn't like, so he killed him. He is in jail because they said he was sane during the murder.
As he was walking down the street, he made up his mind to kill the old man and get rid of his eye.
At midnight for seven nights, the narrator peeked in on the old man to see if the eye was open. He used a lantern to see. One night he woke up the old man with a noise. He did not go back to sleep. The narrator stood there for an hour without moving.
On the eighth night the eye was open so the narrator suffocated the old man and he died.
He cut up the body then he hid it under the house.
The Police arrived cause they over heard something and they went to go check it out. The narrator said I did it I killed him.
