I admit the deed! But, ere long, I felt myself getting pale and wished

them gone. Yes, he was stone, stone dead. They sat and while I answered cheerily, they chatted of familiar things. You fancy me mad. I moved it slowly, very, very slowly, so that I might

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

not disturb the old man's sleep. He had been trying to fancy them causeless, but could not. I smiled, -- for what had I to fear? " I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I felt that I must scream or die! How then am I mad? The night waned, and

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

I worked hastily, but in silence. Now this is the point. The ringing became more distinct : I talked more freely to get rid of the feeling: but it continued and gained definitiveness -- until, at length, I found that the

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

noise was NOT within диета 20 кг за 20 дней my ears. The old man was dead. There entered three men, who introduced themselves, with perfect suavity, as officers of the police. I took up three planks from the flooring

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

of the chamber, and deposited all between the scantlings. I talked more quickly, more vehemently but the noise steadily increased. Anything was more tolerable than this derision! I held the lantern motionless. But you should have seen me. ALL IN VAIN, because Death in approaching him had stalked with his black shadow before him and enveloped the victim. I saw it with perfect distinctness -- all a dull blue with a hideous veil over it that chilled

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

the very marrow in my bones, but I could see nothing else of the old man's face or person, for I had directed the ray as if by instinct precisely upon the damned spot. It took me an hour to place my whole head within the opening so far that I could see him as he lay upon his bed. what COULD I do? A shriek had been heard by a neighbour during the night; suspicion of foul play had been aroused; information had been lodged at the

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

police office, and they (the officers) had been deputed to search the premises. I placed my hand upon the heart and held it there many minutes. I was singularly at ease. -- they KNEW! You should have seen how wisely I proceeded -- with what caution -- with

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

what foresight, with what dissimulation, I went диета 20 кг за 20 дней to work! I removed the bed and

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

examined диета 20 кг за 20 дней the corpse. Madmen

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

know nothing. To think that there I was opening the door little by little, and he not even to dream

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

of my secret deeds

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

or thoughts. So I opened it -- you cannot imagine how stealthily, stealthily -- until at length a single dim ray like the thread of the spider shot out from the crevice and fell upon the vulture eye. A watch's minute hand moves more quickly than did mine. If still you think me mad, you will think so no longer

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

when I describe the wise precautions I took for the concealment of the body. now, I say, there

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

came to my ears a low, dull, quick sound, such as a watch makes when

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

enveloped in cotton. I then replaced the boards so cleverly so cunningly, that no human eye -- not even his -- could have detected anything wrong. But even yet I refrained and kept still. Why WOULD they

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

not be gone? But the beating grew louder, louder! I knew what the old man felt, and pitied him although I chuckled at heart. would a madman have been so wise as this? With a loud yell, I threw open the lantern and leaped into the room. It grew louder -- louder -- louder! For his gold I had no desire.

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

-- they suspected! I think it was his eye! My head

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

ached, and I fancied a ringing in my ears; but still they sat, and still chatted. I could диета 20 кг за 20 дней scarcely contain my feelings of triumph. In the enthusiasm of my confidence, I brought

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

chairs into the room, and desired them here to rest from their fatigues, while I myself, in the wild audacity of my perfect triumph, placed my own seat upon the very spot beneath which reposed the corpse of the victim. Meantime the hellish tattoo of the heart increased. It increased my fury as the

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

beating of a drum stimulates the soldier into courage. When I had waited a long time very patiently without hearing

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

him lie down, I resolved to open a little -- a very, very little crevice in the lantern. I arose and

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

argued about trifles, in a high key and with violent gesticulations; but the noise steadily increased. I bade

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

the gentlemen welcome.

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

He was still sitting up in the bed, listening; just as I have done night after night hearkening to the death watches in the wall. He had never given me insult. So you see

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

he would

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

have been a very profound old man, indeed , to suspect that

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

every night, just at twelve, I looked in upon him while he slept. Now you may think that I drew back -- but no. It was open, wide, wide open, and I grew furious as I gazed upon it. I scarcely breathed. I foamed -- I raved -- I swore! It is impossible to say диета 20 кг за 20 дней how

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

first the idea entered my brain, but, once conceived, it haunted me day and

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

night. I showed them his treasures, secure, undisturbed. No doubt I now

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

grew VERY pale; but I talked more fluently, and with a heightened voice. His eye would trouble me no more. Object there was none. -- this I thought, and this I think. As the bell sounded the hour, there came a knocking at the street door. Presently, I heard a slight groan, and I knew it was the groan of mortal terror. But for many minutes the heart beat on with a muffled sound. The old man's hour had come! This, however, did not vex me; it would

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

not be heard through the wall. At length it ceased. One of his eyes resembled that of a vulture -- a pale blue eye

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

with a film over

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

it. The old man's terror must have been extreme! Never before that night

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

had I felt the extent of my own powers, of my sagacity. And every morning, when the day broke, I went boldly into the chamber and spoke courageously to him, calling him by name in a hearty tone, and inquiring how he had passed the night. It was A LOW, DULL, QUICK SOUND -- MUCH SUCH A SOUND AS A WATCH MAKES WHEN ENVELOPED IN COTTON. nervous, very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why WILL you say that I am mad? Oh, you would have laughed

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

to see how cunningly I thrust it in! His fears had been ever since growing upon him. He had been saying

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

to himself, "It is nothing but the wind in the chimney, it is only

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

a mouse crossing the floor," or, "It is merely a cricket which has made a single chirp. I loved the old man. He had never wronged me. " I kept quite still and said nothing. I paced the floor to and fro with heavy strides, as if excited to fury by the диета 20 кг за 20 дней observations of the men, but the noise steadily increased. Yet, for some minutes longer I refrained and stood still. Many

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

a night, just at midnight, when all the world slept, it has welled up from my own bosom, deepening, with its dreadful echo, the terrors that distracted me. I bade them search -- search well. I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer! and observe how healthily, how calmly, I can tell you the whole

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

story. And this I did for seven long nights, every night just at midnight,

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

but I found the eye always closed, and so it was impossible to do the work, for it was not the old man who vexed me but his Evil Eye. I tried

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

how

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

steadily I could maintain the ray upon

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

the eye. And now a new anxiety seized me -- the sound would be heard by a neighbour! Yet the sound increased -- and what could I do?

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

-- tear up the planks! It grew louder, I say, louder every moment! ------------------------------------------------------------- TRUE! I knew the sound well. диета 20 кг за 20 дней But anything was better than this agony! There was nothing to wash диета 20 кг за 20 дней out -- no stain of any kind -- no blood-spot whatever. -- here, here! He was stone dead. -- they were making a mockery of my horror! The old man, I mentioned, was absent in the country. I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him. And then when my head was well in the

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

room I undid the lantern cautiously -- oh, so cautiously -- cautiously (for the hinges creaked), I undid it just so much that a single thin ray fell upon the vulture eye. Almighty God! I went диета 20 кг за 20 дней down to open it with a light heart, -- for what had I now to fear? -- do you mark me well? I knew that he had been lying awake ever since the first slight

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

noise when he had диета 20 кг за 20 дней turned диета 20 кг за 20 дней in the bed. I had been too wary for that. I knew that sound well too. For a whole hour I did

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

not move a muscle, and in the meantime I did not hear him lie down. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. Yes, it was this! I thought the

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

heart must

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

burst. диета 20 кг за 20 дней When I had made an end of these labours, it was four o'clock -- still dark as midnight. -- no, no? I fairly chuckled at the idea, and perhaps he heard me, for he moved on the bed

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

suddenly as if startled. I say I knew it well. I have told you that I am nervous: so I am. It was the low stifled sound that arises from the bottom of the soul when overcharged with awe. Upon the eighth night I was more than usually

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

cautious

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

in opening диета 20 кг за 20 дней the door. And now have I not told you that what

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

you mistake for madness is but over-acuteness of the senses? And now at the dead hour of the night, amid the dreadful диета 20 кг за 20 дней silence of that old house, so strange a noise as this excited me to uncontrollable terror. It was the beating of the old man's heart. I then smiled gaily, to find the deed

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

so far done. Whenever it fell upon me my blood ran cold, and

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

so by degrees, very gradually, I made up my mind диета 20 кг за 20 дней to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye for ever. His room was as black as pitch with

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

the thick darkness (for the shutters were

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

close fastened through fear

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

of robbers), and

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

so I knew that he could not see the opening of the door, and I kept pushing it on steadily, steadily. " Yes he has been trying to comfort himself with these

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

suppositions ; but he had found all in vain. The officers were satisfied. Was it possible they heard not? And still the men chatted pleasantly , and smiled. The shriek, I said, was my own in a dream. They heard! -- and now -- again -- hark! -- "Villains! And every night about midnight I turned the latch of his door and opened it oh,

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

so gently! I took my visitors all over the house.

диета 20 кг за 20 дней

My MANNER had convinced them. He shrieked once -- once only. It grew quicker and quicker, and louder
