  • The climax is the term used to refer to the part of the story when the tension of a main idea starts to build up, and it reaches its highest point in the plot. The climax of a story is usually the most intense or interesting part of the story. The narrator of this story tends to murder the old man because the old man's eye is scary, and creepy. "One of his eyes looked like the eye of a vulture. Whenever it looked at me, my blood ran cold. I made up my mind to take the life of the man."
  • Falling action occurs right after the climax of a story. Falling action is the part of a story when the main conflict starts to resolve. It also "wraps up" the narrative and leads to the closure of the story. The falling action of this story is when the three police officers arrive at the old man's house after the neighbor heard a scream and reported it to the police at the police station. "Three policemen came in. These men had been sent here to search the place. I smiled and invited them in."
  • The resolution of a story is the part of the story's plot in which the conflict or problem is resolved and worked out. The resolution of a story is typically where the story ends. The resolution doesn't always have to be a good ending in the story, but it could also be bad. The problem does not have to be fixed or solved in the resolution of a story.In this story, the resolution was that the boy hears the man's heartbeat in his head and it gets louder and louder. He yells, and swears wondering why the police don't hear, but it's really his guiltiness of killing the old man that is "yelling in his head." The boy then confesses to the police that he had murdered the old man.
