          An unnamed narrator opens the story by telling the reader that 1 is nervous but not mad. He says that 2 is going to tell a story in which he will defend 3 sanity, yet confess to having killed an old man. His motivation was neither passion nor desire for money, but rather a fear of the 4 pale blue eye. Again, he insists that he is not crazy because 5 cool and measured actions, though criminal, are not those of a madman. Every night, he went to the old 6 room and secretly observed the man sleeping. In the morning, 7 would behave as if everything were normal. After a week of this activity, the narrator decides, somewhat randomly, that the time is right actually to kill the old man. When the narrator arrives late on the eighth night, though, the old man wakes up and cries out. The narrator remains still, stalking the old man as he sits awake and frightened. The narrator understands how frightened the old man is, having also experienced the lonely terrors of the night. Soon, the narrator hears a dull pounding that he interprets as the old 8 terrified heartbeat. Worried that a neighbor might hear the loud thumping, he attacks and kills the old man. He then dismembers the body and hides the pieces below the floorboards in the bedroom. He is careful not to leave even a drop of blood on the floor. As he finishes 9 job, a clock strikes the hour of four. At the same time, the narrator hears a knock at the street door. The police have arrived, having been called by a neighbor who heard the old man shriek. The narrator is careful to be chatty and to appear normal. He leads the officers all over the house without acting suspiciously. Feeling so confident, he even brings 10 into the old 11 bedroom to sit down and talk at the scene of the crime. The policemen do not suspect a thing. The narrator is comfortable until he starts to hear a low thumping sound. He recognizes the low sound as the heart of the old man, pounding away beneath the floorboards. He panics, believing that the policemen must also hear the sound and know 12 guilt. Driven mad by the idea that 13 are mocking 14 agony with 15 pleasant chatter, he confesses to the crime and shrieks at the men to rip up the floorboards.
