NOOOO! I hate this stupid house! Everything sucks!
Calm down, father. It's okay.
He then threw the paw in the fire.
I'm Sargeant-Major Morris. This is the Monkey's Paw. It is cursed. It will grant three wishes for three men. I warn you not to use it. The man who wished before me wished for death as his final wish.
He took the paw out of the fire quickly. The major left their home.
NO WAIT! I want the paw!
Wish for 200 pounds.
I wish for 200 pounds.
Mr. White wished for 200 pounds and nothing happened. He headed to bed but on his way saw a simian face inthe shadows. He shook it of and went up to bed.
Herbert went to work the next morning. A few hours after he left someone knocked at the door. He came inside.
Your son was caught in the machinery and has died. The company would like to offer you 200 pounds in compensation.
Ten days after Herbert's death Mrs. White convinced Mr. White to wish Herbert alive again. He did although he thought it was a bad idea. A few moments later there was a knock at the door. The knocking didn't stop. They went to the door but Mrs. White couldn't get it open. Mr. White refused to help and went to find the paw. He made his final wish seconds before she opened the door. The knocking ceased and when she opened the door nothing was there.
