I have a disease. It sharped my sense of hearing. I can hear heaven and earth. I am not mad.
The main character is saying how people call him mad, but they are wrong he vis not mad he is so smart.
He is watching the old man with the weird eye sleep waiting to kill him. He says how he did this for a week.
He says how the old man doesn't suspect a thing, and he will continue doing it.
This is the seventh night. This time doesn't watch him very well tonight because as he opened the lantern he made a noise that woke the old man up. They sit there for a while until he sees the eye is open so he kills the old man.
The police showed up to the house because the neighbor heard a shriek during the night. This shriek was the old man, but the main character said it was him.
The main character swore that he heard the old mans heart,but he didn't. It drove him crazy, so he told the cops where he was and how he killed the old man.
