" A shriek had been heard by a neighbor during the night; suspicion of foul play had been aroused"
"Make it stop!"
THUMP! THUMP! THUMP!
Blah Blah Blah
Yes! Yes! I killed him. Pull up the boards and you shall see! I killed him. But why does his heart not stop beating! Why does it not stop!!
Upon the eighth night, the man was not as cautious as before. His head was in, and when he was about to open the lantern, his thumb slipped upon the tin fastening. The old man sprang up in bed and started crying, with the heart beating so loud that he decided to kill the old man.
I must kill you before the neighbors hear!
The old man's hour had come! In an instant the man dragged the old man on to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him.
