In this story you will see an old man and the mad man narrator.
The narrator does not like the old mans vulture eye it makes "his blood run cold" (poe89). So the narrator decided to kill the old mans eye.
The narrator went in the old mans room for seven day at midnight but "but I found the eye always closed; and so it was impossible to do the work" (poe90)
So on the eight night it was time to commit the crime so he went in to the old mans room but " I fairly chuckled at the idea; and perhaps he heard me; for he moved on the bed suddenly, as if startled." (poe90) but he still went in to the old mans room. I killed the old man. I hid him underneath the floorboard.
The police got a call from someone saying they heard a screech. So the police came and knocked on the door but the narrator was not scared. He told them that the old man was out of town. So the police searched the house. Toward the end the old man started hearing the heart beat. So, he confessed that the old was was dead.
