The tell tale Heart

Written By: Edgar Allen Poe

“True!- Nervous- Very- Very Dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses-not destroyed them- not dulled them.”

A servant is bothered by his masters “pale blue eye with film over it” so the unnamed servant comes up with a plan “to be rid of the vulture eye forever”

As the servant goes into his masters bedroom for seven consecutive nights at exactly midnight, on the eighth night his master awakens due to a loud noise heard In his chamber.

Then early he next morning the cops come asking questions………
