The Monkey's Paw

""Herbert will have some more of his funny remarks, I expect, when he comes home," she said as they sat at dinner."I dare say," said Mr. White, pouring himself out some beer"
Mood -----> Macabre
Mr. White dropped his wife's hand, and rising to his feet, gazed with a look of horror at his visitor. His dry lips shaped the words, "How much?"
"Two hundred pounds," was the answer.
Isn't that a creepy coincidence? Anyway there is more. When granting the wish of two hundred pounds Mr. White states that the paw had moved in his hand: "A fine crash from the piano greeted his words, interrupted by a shuddering cry from the old man. His wife and son ran toward him.
"It moved," he cried, with a glance of disgust at the object as it lay on the floor. "As I wished, it twisted in my hand like a snake.""
I think this theme goes with it because The paw does grant wishes and it grants them but with a very dark price.
