After Mrs. White made the second to last wish for her son to be alive again, she heard a knock at the door. Mr. White tried to stop her as she ran to the door but it was too late. As she opened the door she found something that brought grimace to her face.
Herbert was a zombie! Mrs. White was not quick enough to run away in time so the zombie got her and ate her. On the other hand, Mr. White escaped and ran and hid in his bedroom and locked the door. He was so sad that his wife had been taken but he had to save everyone in the town.
As he was in the bedroom debating on what to do, then it hit him. He had one more wish on the paw, but it was on the stairs. Which meant that he had to pass the zombies first.
As he ran out of the room, he found the monkey's paw and ran as fast as he could down the stairs. Although, as he got to the bottom of the stairs he did not realize the zombies were in the kitchen right across from him.
As he ran through the house to the front door, he had an idea to be with his family again. When he was on the porch he grabbed the paw with two hands and wished to be a zombie with his family to be with them forever.
As he transformed into a zombie, he could then hear his wife and son talking! So together they all made a plan to take over the entire planet. They accomplished this by stealing everyone's brains.
