True--nervous--very.very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say I'm mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily --how calmly I can tell you the whole story
I loved the Old man. He had never wronged me.He had never given me insult. For his gold I had no desire. I think it was his eye! yes, it was that! He had the eye of a vulture --a pale blue eye, with a film over it whenever it fell upon me. my blood ran cold; and so by degrees --very gradually --I ha made up m mind to take the life of the old man.
He watched over the old man for 7 nights at midnight waiting to see the vulture eye
When the old man had awoken he waited and then he Murdered the old man
After he killed the old man he dismembered his body and hit it below the floor boards
After the police arrived he admitted that he killed the old man
I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --its the beating of his hideous heart!
