In this sence the narrator is talking about why he is not mad and how he wants to kill the old man who has an volture eye that haounts him. "...I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever."
Every night at midnight he came to the old mans room and watched the old man as he slept, watched the vulture eye. "And every night, about midnight, I turned the latch of his door and opened it."
One day when he was watching the old man he woke up and groaned, after waiting for the old man to go back to sleep for a while he never did. He decited it was time to kill him, when he was done he hid the old man in the floar boards. "The old man's hour had come! With a loud yell, i threw open the lantern and leaped into the room."
The beating of the old man's heart
A neighbor of the old man heard his scream and called the police, he invited them in and had a converstaion. After a little talking he convinced them he didnt do anythging to the old amn and he had just gone on vacation."The shriek, I said,was my own in a dream.The old man,I mentioned,was absent in the country.
He heard this noise, the noise of the old mans heart beating and it was getting louder and louder. Finally her couldent't haddle the sound anymore and told the police men what he had done."Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
I think the most suspenseful part was when the narrator was hearing the beating of the old mans heart and confessing to the police."..., and I fancied a ringing in my ears...It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
