The narrator creeps down the hallway to the old man's bedroom with his lantern. He moves slowly, hour by hour, making sure he does not wake up the old man.
Finally the narrator manages to get his head in the door where he can see the old man fast asleep. The old man hears a noise and stirs but then goes back to bed. The narrator is not phased because he knows the old man won't be able to see him. All of a sudden the narrator sees the old man's red eye!!!
The narrator throws open his lantern and barges in the room, not caring if the old man wakes up because he knows he will get to him way before the old man can do anything. The narrator drags the old man onto the floor and he shrieks only once. Then he pulled the heavy bed over him. The deed was done and the old man was killed!
The narrator then cuts the old man's head, hands, and legs off. He digs up a spot in the room and put the dead man's body parts in there. He then covers the hole up with the floor boards. He thinks to himself, " nobody will think or suspect a think."
Later when the police come to question him he has on his poker face but then starts hearing things. He eventually gives in and admits his crimes and tells the men where the the dead body is.
