The narrator is extremely irritated by the old man‘s foggy blue eye. The narrator says that the eye incited the derision of a vultures eye with a film coving it.
Over the next eight days the narrator plots killing the old man to get rid of the “eye” because of his supposition that the eye is evil. Each night he enters the old mans room with a lantern till he sees the eye.
I Confess.. MAKE IT STOP !
On the eight night the old man wakes up and screams. Then the narrator rehemently drags the the old man to the floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him. Then he made sure the man was dead and his hear was no longer beating. Then he cuts off the man head, arms and legs and hide them.
The police arrives, citing that someone reported a scream. The narrator sagaciously covers up by saying it was him that screamed and that the old man is out of town.
He believes he hears a noise. He hearkens and it was the beating of the old mans heart which grew louder and louder to the point he couldn’t take it anymore. So he decides to confess to the police.
