In the Tell-Tale Heart the narrator doesn't like the old mans eye and he hates his blue evil eye because it bothers him. So one day he makes up his mind to stop the bothering, It was to kill the old man. "And every night, about midnight, I turned the latch of his door and opened it oh so gently!" he says. But just like every night, it was completely closed witch was impossible to do his work. Time has past and one day he goes to the old mans room and opens the lantern but the old man hears. He yells who is there!!!!! he stays still for one hour the old man is still staring and his heart started beating fast and then faster it was because he was scared." I resolved to open a little very, very little crevice in the lantern. So I opened it you cannot imagine how stealthily, stealthily until, at length a simple dim ray, like the thread of the spider, shot from out the crevice and fell full upon the vulture eye.It was open wide, wide open" he ran to him and hit the old man with the light on the head and flipped the bed over and suffocated him with the bed. The old mans heart beated faster and faster but his heart stopped beating witch means he is dead. He flipped the bed over and he took out the old mans corps and the mans heart and put it in a bag and put it under the ground. He herd a knock on the door and it was the police but he was not scared he was confident he wouldn't get caught. The police ask him if everything was ok because the neighbors reported a scream.He said everything is fine and the police asked if they can come in and speak to the old man but he lied and said" i'm sorry but he is not home he went out of town but yes come inside". he gave the police a tour around and said see hes not here, the police laughed and then he did too. He asked if they wanted a cup of tea before they left and they said yes, they started talking until he herd a beat it was the heart of the old man,"They herd" he said they had too. The beating got louder and louder and louder the more nervous he got until it started beating faster and faster "Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! tear up the planks! here, here! It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
