THE THUMPING INFORMAL TICKER BY BRODY GATTEN THE BOOK IS BY EDGAR ALLAN POE
*What is that? It must be the work of the devil! I shall get rid of it at once!*
Listen closely and I'll tell the story, of how my life stopped going hunky dory. Okay, I'll stop talking in rhymes. Only mad people talk in rhymes, correct? It all started when I noticed the devil in the old man who I lived with.
I decided that I would stalk the man before I would act. I stalked for 7 straight days. One time, I sat still for 1 straight hour, stalking, waiting, preying.
Tear up the floor boards, I beg of you! Anything is better than this hell I'm going through! It is here! Here I tell you! His wretched filthy heart!
Once he woke up and saw me, he screamed incredibly loud. I knew it was time to act.
thump, thump, thump, ...........
Once the deed was done, I had to clear away the evidence. After I was done, I heard a knocking noise.It was men in police uniforms. They told me there was a report of a neighbor who heard a scream.
They searched the home and found nothing. And then, his heart started beating.
