In this story,there are two main characters than live in the same house as each other and only one of them survives in the end.One of characters is a old man that lives with another man who is really insane.
The conflict in this story is that the old man has a messed up eye and it's driving the other man living with him insane.It basically causes him to hallucinate and go crazy and he only gets worse as the days go by.
As the days past the crazy man has this urge to kill the old man, but the only way he wants to do it is in his sleep.Again, he only wants to do this because he thinks the old man's eye is evil and its driving him crazy.
It was this one night where the crazy man would plan on sneaking up on the old man in his sleep and finally kill him.However in doing so,he ended up waking up the old man and he suffocated him until he did not hear or feel the beating heart of the old man.
After killing the old man, the crazy man then cut him into pieces and hid him under the floor boards so no one would find him.There was almost no trace of the old man because he was so perfectly hidden.
After the crazy man hides him under the floorboards,two cops come in to investigate because the neighbor called because he or she heard the old man scream during the night of his death.The cops had no idea that the old man was under the floor boards,but however the crazy man heard the beating heart of the old man when no one else did.So,eventually he couldn't handle it anymore and he gave himself up.
