Mr. White ran to her side to comfort her.They both realized that no one should ever have to feel the devastation and loss they felt that the monkey's paw had caused.
After awhile they went inside, Mr. and Mrs. White new what had to be done. They had to end what started this all. Mr. White started a fire, quickly Ms. White threw the monkey's paw into the fire and they watched as it burned to ash. Apart of them felt relief But Mrs. White still had a gaping hole in her chest.
A week had past and it was time for Herbert's funeral. Mr. and Ms. White were still traumatized but still had the courage to give a speech about there son. Once everyone left Ms.White talked to Herbert for an hour not wanting to let him go just glad that this whole mess was over. They never did tell anyone one about the monkey's paw. They said the secret would die with them.
