That Monkey's Paw is wretched! It grants 3 wishes in return of something horrible. It shall burn!
The man snatches the paw away before it is engulfed in flames.
No! The paw brings nothing but bad luck!
Oh, that's nonsense! I wish for 300 pounds!
The next day, the man and woman had been inside the house cooking and cleaning when someone from their son's job had come knocking at the door. He explained to them that their son got caught in the machinery and passed. To compensate for the loss, the mother and father were given 300 pounds.
Our boy is gone!
I'm very sorry for your loss.
The man reluctantly goes downstairs to retrieve the monkey's paw because his wife forces him to. She wishes for their son to be brought back to life.
Why haven't I thought of this? We can use the Monkey's Paw to bring back our boy!
No! It will cost us something horrible in return!
As the mother is about to open the door, her husband quickly grabs the monkey's paw and wishes the boy away.
