True! - nervous - very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. How, then, am I mad?
It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain; but once conceived it haunted me day and night. Passion there was none. I loved the old man. He had never wronged me
Sir do you need anything
I think it was his eye! yes, it was this! He had the eye of a vulture - a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees very gradually I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever.
