THE TELL-TALE HEART

by Edgar Allan Poe by Sara Adams

THE TELL-TALE HEART

One day the killer got mad because of the old mans evil blue eye. "I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever." The narrator watched him for seven nights. On the eighth day the man woke up and said who is there. There was no answer. The old man thought, "It is merely a cricket which has made a single chirp." "It is nothing but the wind in the chimney --it is only a mouse crossing the floor." The killer stood still until he couldn't take it any longer. The mad man killed the old man. He smothered him with the bed. Then the cops showed up and the killer went crazy because he could hear the old mans heart. The narrator said, "Villains!" "dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!"
