Storyboard Text

  • The old man I had been staying with was kind, but I couldn't overlook the strange glow in his eyes. I decided that I needed to get rid of him. The week before, I was the nicest I had ever been to the old man.
  • I watched him for many nights, trying to decide the perfect time to strike.
  • When the night came to make my move, I carefully snuck into his room.
  • Once I finally attacked the old man, I decided that the most efficient way to kill him was to drown him in his own mattress, and dispose of his body afterwards.
  • I had dismembered the corpse of my victim, and carefully hidden them under the floorboards in the living room. Nobody will be able to find him now, unless they hear the heartbeat that still thumps in my mind.
  • I could hear his heart beat through the floor, and I know that the officers are mocking me! A little girl? Capable of murder? No such thing exists! I know they are thinking this about me!
  • I yelled at them to tear up the floor boards, and see what I've done.I didn't want to be tortured with this beating and mockery anymore.
