The officers were satisfied, they had been sitting there contently as I had succeded they would never know that sitting beneath my body was the corpse of the man that i had just killed
And than I heard it. A low thumping noise, thump, thump. It increased, it got louder, louder and louder. The agony was killing me. But the officers stil were chatting contently. Did they hear what i heard? Maybe not, but i still heard it, as it got louder louder louder. Oh they heard it alright! AHHHHHH i wanted to scream. I couldn't deal with this embarrasment any longer.
Finally I couldnt handle it anymore, I took the chair on the far side of the roo and flung out of my dirct vision. I than proceeded to rip open the floor boards, in which all the body parts were held. I took the arm, head and the heart. I held it up for all to see, than i said, "here, here, is the beating of the hideous heart!"
