Tha narrator is trying his best to calmly tell his roommate in his cell how he ended up in there.
The narrator is disturbed by the old man's eye even though he had a great relationship with him. The eye, the vulture blue eye would make the narrator cold. Cold as if a group of spirits was there that night. The narrator then decided to come up with a devious plan to get rid of the eye forever.
Do they here that!
The narrator was so kind to the old man, the old man would never guest every night at midnight the narrator would take his light quietly and sneakily into his room. The narrator went in very slowly making sure not to make even the slightest noise that will disturb the old man while he rests. He did this for seven nights every night the eyes were closed. That was until the eighth night the narrator went into the room and old man peered up and asked who is the there. The narrator just stood there with the excitement of the old man's terror.
I admit it I did the deed!
He could not take it anymore he sprang to the old man and quickly dragged him onto the floor suffocating him until his heartbeat was done. he was then dead.
The narrator cut his body into pieces put him under the wooden plank. He cleaned himself off and made sure it looked like nothing happened. Later in the night, the bell rang with officers on the other side of the door. He let them in and search the house. As the three were talking the narrator started hearing noises. It became louder. It was the beating of the old man's heart.
He could not take it anymore he shrieked whqat he has done. He admits where is the old man.
