I'll will take my time to see what time you fall asleep and what time you you wake up.
On the eighth night when I was opening the lantern my hand slipped and the old man woke up. He was scared and would not go back to bed.
After waiting for hours. I flipped the bed on the old man until i heard his heart stop beating.
I lay on that bed until i heard the old man's heart stop beating and i could no longer heard his breathing. Once I was sure he was dead. I got to work and put him under the floor boards.
Then there was a knock at the door. The neighbors had heard the old mans scream and called the cops. They asked a couple questions but my answers were so quick they did not suspect a thing. So, I invited them in for a cup of tea.
I even brought chairs into the old man's room and that's where we had tea.
