Tell Tale Heart Alina Moncada Mr.Haws CP English 5 october 26, 2018
The boy sneaks into the old mans house and is being even more quiet than the last seven nights hes visited the old man without him knowing..
"Oh it is nothing but the wind in the chimney.."
The boy accidentally wakes up the man from his sleep creating a loud noise when he knocked over a lantern. The old man begins to worry but tries to comfort himself.
The old man lies awake for hours Both of them in complete darkness, unable to clearly see one another. Now the old man is positive there someone is in his room and is worried for his life. As the man stands up to walk around....
The boy shoves the old man onto the ground and quickly lifts and drops the bed on top of him. He can slowly hear the old mans heart begin to slow and eventually stop completely.
The boy, now content with his accomplishments, is smiling at the dead man. The old man, now completely dead, has no further thoughts running through his mind. The boy must now hide the body and clean up the evidence before word gets out.
