The whites family is waiting for a guest named Sgt. Morris, while Mr. White and his son Herbert were playing a game called chess while Mrs. White is doing something else. Sgt. Morris came and introduced himself.
Sgt. Morris talked about his travel then the monkey's paw, and how the paw can grant them three wish and that it will bring them harm to every wish that they make. Sgt.Morris then tried to throw the moneky's paw into the fire then Mr. White snatched it from his hands. Herbert wanted his dad to wish for a £200.
This is the monkey's paw. A spell was put into this paw by an old holy, a fakir in India
Sgt. Morris left after he told that the paw is dangerous. Mr. White wished for two hundred pounds. The next day Herbert went to work. Herbert never came back, instead a messenger from Maw and meggins told them that their son has died. Mrs. White remembered that they have two more wished so she insisted that they should wish for Herbert to be alive again.
Im sorry but your son has died, but in consideration of your son's services they wish to present you with a certain sum as compensation. For two hundred pounds
They made the second wish, nothing had happened. Both of them went back to bed then they heard a knock on their front door. Mrs. White told Mr. White to go open the door and let Herbert in. Mr. White stood there and looking at her, afraid. Mrs. White went to go open the door
Mr. White looked for the monkey's paw when he told Mrs. White to not open the door, but she still tried to. Mr. White wished for the final wish while Mrs. White doesn't know about it.
Mrs. White opened the front door and a sudden strong wind came through, also Herbert wasn't there. Mr. White followed Mrs. White and was glad that she's okay.
