A short Story
Given his utter hatred of the old man's eye, the narrator plots murder against the old man.
I was never kinder to the old man than during the week before I killed him. I watched him cautiously every night, about midnight. I hated his evil eye
Villains!!! Here is the corpse. I admit the deed.
One night, I was able to direct a ray from my lantern straight onto the vulture eye. I grew angry and suffocated the old man. Dragged him to the bathroom and cut all his body in a tub. There was nothing to wash out! Then i buried him under floor planks
A neighbor had heard the old man shriek and called the cops. I invited them in and simply told them the shriek was from me in a bad dream and the old man was absent in the country. They were satisfied.
They chatted familiar things and were laughing. I was getting pale and heard a sound grow quicker and quicker in my head. I wondered how they didn't hear it also. Then, it hit me, they heard, and the were laughing at me! The sound bothered me too much and I shrieked!
