Storyboard Text

  • Oh? Who could be here at this hour?
  • *knock,knock,knock*
  • Officers, please, come in. The scream was my own, from a childish dream
  • We got called about a shreik that has been heard. We need to search the house.
  • *laughter*
  • It was just around four o'cock when I had finished everything. Then there was knocking at the door.  Who could it be this late at night?
  • I opened the door with a light heart- for what had I now to fear?  Three officers entered the old man's home, saying they had heart a shreik and suspected foul play.
  • He's here! Under the floorboards! I did it, I killed the old man!
  • After the officers had checked everywhere, I led them to the old mans room for a drink- perhaps that would tie them over.  I was so confident in my triumph that I placed my seat on top of the very place in which the old man's body lie underneath. 
  • But as time passed, I grew pale and wished them gone. I had a horrible headache and fancied a ringing in my ears.  The ringing because louder and louder.  But the noise wasn't from within my ears, no!  It was coming from underneath the floor! 
  • The sound became more distinct; a low, quick sound like a watch enveloped in cotton.  I swore, I gasped for breath, I raved!  The noise kept getting louder!  I swung the chair from where I had been sitting and grated it on the floor boards. I couldn't take it anymore!
  • And now i'm here; in this horrible place.  Do you still fancy me mad after what iv'e told you?
