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.
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.
