  • Roderick and the narrator bury Madeline, Roderick's sister after she dies. Roderick notices a mysterious gas surrounding the house.
  • While reading Roderick a book, they start hearing the noises as they are being read in the book. This startles them very much and Roderick remarks that he has been hearing these noises for days. Then he proclaims that Madeline has been buried alive. Madeline then comes through the door and attacks Roderick right before she dies, and Roderick dies of fear. Then Roderick flees the house as he sees it crumble to the ground behind him.
