The narrator lives in the old man's house and takes care of him everyday. Every time he talks to the old man, something bothers him, but he cant pin point what the problem is. He finally figuered out that it was the old mans blue eyes that vexed him.
Finally! I have you taken care of !
When the narrator was sliding his head carefully every second through that door a ray of light shown upon the vultures eye. Every moment something would happen he could hear the old mans heart carefully beating.
The narrator would be peaking his heading in and out through out the week waiting for the perfect time to get the old man. He decided to fasten the tin on the lantern until his finger slipped and woke the old man. I stood still for the next few hours.
The narrator waited seven days to kill the old man until the eight night when he decided that was the time to kill him. He heard the heart beating louder and louder until he charged the bed, threw the matress over until the the heart sounded muffled. He mismembered the body and stuck him under the scantlings.
When the narrator was done putting the old man under the floor, he heard at the street door knocking and pounding at four in the night. He opened it up at in his presence was three officers of the police. He brought them in to have a seat and started to talk and motion nervously to the officers.
When the narrator couldnt take anymore of the paranoia of the beating heart he screamed out at admitted to the police where the body was and why he did it. He did it to kill the horrible eye and that beating heart.
