  • In the exposition of the story, the main character Paul hears voices around his house saying "There must be more money! There must be more money!"
  • There must be more money!
  • There must be more money!
  • The initial incident of the story is when Paul tells his mom he believes he's a lucky person. His mom of course laughs at his remark, which makes Paul want to prove to his mother that he is lucky.
  • I believe I'm a lucky person.
  • Sure.
  • The rising action is when Paul rides his rocking horse and tells his Uncle Oscar Daffodil is going to win the derby. This makes Uncle Oscar curious, so he ends up joining the partnership that Paul and his gardener Bassett made to bet on Daffodil.
  • You don't say?...
  • The winner's going to be Daffodil! 
  • Would you like to join our partnership?
  • The climax of the story is when Paul was right about Daffodil winning the derby. This gives Paul lots of money which he gives to his mom on her birthday, but the voices in the house still never change trying to find more and more money.
  • The falling action of the story is when Paul doesn't know who's going to win the next derby, which makes him go mad. This  part of the story is the falling action because after this it leads to Paul's demise, which is the resolution.
