The narrator believes he is not crazy at all but others tend to think he is. He is close friends with the old man and really did love him but there was just one thing that set him off.... his eye. It haunted him day and night and he knew the only way to stop thinking about it was to the kill the old man.
He decided to kill him while he was asleep but every night when he came in his house we would open the door for an hour so he did not wake up the old man but never killed him because his eye was not out. He spent 7 nights trying to do the same thing but every night at 12 am he never did it.
Just as the narrator was coming in the room the old man woke up. He had heard a noise and shrieked and sat up from his deep sleep. The old man kept telling himself it was a mouse or the vents but still did not go to sleep for an hour
The narrator could not take it anymore the eye was bulging out and he took a mattress on top of him and suffocated him to death . He chopped his arms,legs and head off and hid it under the floor boards.
There was a neighbor that heard a scream and she called the police to check on the house. He told them that nothing was wrong and that he was out of the country and he screamed from a dream. He showed them every room and acted like nothing was wrong.
They went into his living room to sit and talk but The narrators heart was pounding and he was feeling dizzy. He did not know what to do and the beating and aching was louder and stronger every second till the point were he could not take it anymore and just screamed out and told them everything from the moment he started watching the old man to that very second.
