The Tell-Tale Heart

By Josh Armstrong


"It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain; but once conceived, it haunted me day and night. The idea was to kill the old man and his vulture eye. "When I had waited a long time, without hearing him lie down, I decided to open a little -- a very, very little -- crack in the lantern. So I opened it. You cannot imagine how carefully, carefully. Finally, a single ray of light shot from out and fell full upon the vulture eye" At this moment the old man was about to die. "Villains Pretend no more! I admit the deed! Tear up the floor boards! Here, here! It is the beating of his hideous heart!" says the Character in Poe's story as he admits to the deed
