Mr.White and his son are playing chess while Mrs.white is knitting on a rainy night.
The Sad Funeral
Mr.White´s friend, Morris visits and shows the family a talisman, a monkey´s paw that can grant any wish 3 times. The Family think of it as nonsense when he says the wishes can cause bad things to happen.
Morris gave Mr.White the talisman and after Morris leaves, Mr.White wishes for 200pounds and things don´t go well in the other room.
What was at the door???
The next day Mrs.White hears bad news about his son who got caught in the machinery at the factory. The family is sad and holds a funeral for him. Mrs.White cries.
Here lies Herbert White
Mrs.White remembers the talisman that can grant only wish and thought of an idea to bring their son back but Mr.White thinks the outcome won´t be what she expects Mr and Mrs.White go to the basement to get the talisman and they make their wish. Nothing happens with the talisman.
Mr and Mrs.White go back to bed after nothing happens. They soon hear knocking on the door, and Mr.White wants to ignore it but Mrs.White insists that they open the door because she thinks it´s herbert. They both open the door after continuous knocking and after they open the door.....there was nothing there.
