It was a dark and wet night, when Sergeant Major Morris comes and introduces the monkey’s paw.
They wonder if the paw is real, and they also think about what they should wish for. They end up wishing for 200 pounds, and nothing seemed to happen.
A visitor comes and informed Mr. White and Mrs. White that their son died. They are then compensated with 200 pounds.
In the end Mr. white made is last wish and then the knocking ceased suddenly, although the echoes of it were still still in the house. He heard the chair drawn back and the door opened A cold wind rushed up the staircase, and a long the wall of disappointment and misery from his wife gave him courage to run down to her side, and then to the gate beyond. The street lamp flickering opposite shone on a quiet and deserted road.
