mad? why i am not mad. im quite sane. in fact im going to tell you about a plan i made that an insane person couldnt think of.
i was living with an old man. a very nice man. there was one thing that drived me crazy about him. HIS EYE. PALE AND GREY BLUE. ALWAYS WATCHING ME. So i made up my mind to kill the man. To rid myself of that evil eye.
so that very night i went into the old man's chamber and KILLED him. After that i disassembled his body and put it under a wood tile and placed it back so very carefully no one would ever find it
The police came. i wasnt scared i was sure i was not going to be discovered.
we got a call from your neighbor about a scream.
that was just me screaming i had a terrible dream but your welcome to check the house. the man living with me is off traveling i could show you to his chamber.
you must be tired. here a cup of tea may help.
i am satisfied with my investigation.
i was so sure that i offered him a cup of tea.
but the beating the old mans heart was still vivid. the police laughing and talking. THEY WERE MOCKING ME! THEY ALREADY KNEW! i confessed. it was the sound of his hideous heart.
okay okay. i confess! i killed the old man. look under the wooden tile!
