  • Complicating incidents 
  • The eighth night: I had my head in, and was about to open the lantern, when my thumb slipped upon the tin fastening, and the old man sprang up in bed, crying out.
  • Who's there?
  • Crisis
  • I then took up three planks from the flooring of the chamber, and deposited all between the scantlings.

  • In an instant I dragged him to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him. I then smiled gaily, to find the deed so far done. But, for many minutes, the heart beat on with a muffled sound.

  • Climax
  • Almighty God! --no, no! They heard! --they suspected! --they knew! --they were making a mockery of my horror!
  • Conclusion
