сауна для похудения



His room

сауна для похудения

was as black as pitch with the thick darkness (for the shutters were close fastened through fear of robbers), and so I knew that he could not see the opening

сауна для похудения

of the door, and I kept pushing it on steadily, steadily. сауна для похудения And every

сауна для похудения

night

сауна для похудения

about midnight I turned the latch сауна для похудения of his door and opened it oh, so gently! When I had waited a long time very patiently without hearing him lie down, I resolved to open a little -- a very,

сауна для похудения

very little crevice in the lantern. It was the beating of the

сауна для похудения

old man's heart. Presently,

сауна для похудения

I heard a slight groan, and I knew it was the groan of mortal terror. I could scarcely contain my feelings of triumph. I was never kinder to the old man than during the whole week before I killed him. But for many minutes the heart beat on with a muffled sound. -- do you mark me well? I then сауна для похудения smiled gaily, to find the deed сауна для похудения so far done. They sat and while I answered cheerily, they chatted of familiar things. And still the men

сауна для похудения

chatted pleasantly , and smiled. The night waned, and I worked hastily, but

сауна для похудения

in silence. and observe how healthily, how calmly, I can tell you the whole story. Whenever it fell сауна для похудения upon me my blood ran cold, and

сауна для похудения

so by degrees, very gradually, I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye for ever. He was stone dead. It was the low stifled sound that arises from the bottom of the soul when overcharged with awe. The old man's hour had come! I placed my hand upon the heart and held it there many minutes. And every morning, when the day broke, I went boldly into the chamber and

сауна для похудения

spoke courageously to him, calling him by name in a hearty tone, and

сауна для похудения

inquiring how he had passed the night. And now have I not

сауна для похудения

told you that what you mistake for madness is but

сауна для похудения

over-acuteness of the senses? I felt that I must scream or die! At length it ceased. The shriek, I said, was my own in a dream. To think that there I was opening the door little by little, and he not even to dream of my secret deeds or thoughts. I have told you that I am nervous: so I am. I knew that he had been lying awake ever since the first slight noise when he had turned in the bed. I thought the heart must burst. I heard many things in hell. You fancy me mad. And now a new anxiety seized me -- the sound would be heard by a neighbour! I bade

сауна для похудения

the gentlemen welcome. My head ached, and I fancied a ringing in my ears; but still they sat, and still chatted. There was nothing to wash out -- no stain of any kind -- no blood-spot whatever. My MANNER

сауна для похудения

had convinced them. Meantime the hellish tattoo of the heart increased. I swung the chair upon which I had been sitting, сауна для похудения and grated it upon the boards, but the noise arose over all and continually increased. He had been trying to fancy them causeless, but

сауна для похудения

could not. I foamed -- I raved -- I swore! How then am I mad? " Yes he has been trying to comfort himself with these suppositions ; but he had found all in vain. When I had made an end of these labours, it was four o'clock -- still dark сауна для похудения as midnight. He shrieked once -- once only. The old man, I mentioned, was absent in the country. now, I say, there came to my ears a low, dull, quick sound, such as a watch makes when

сауна для похудения

enveloped сауна для похудения in cotton. nervous, very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and

сауна для похудения

am; but why WILL you say that I am mad? One of his eyes resembled

сауна для похудения

that of a vulture -- a pale blue eye with a film over it. But even yet I refrained and kept still. I could bear those hypocritical smiles no longer! -- they suspected! ------------------------------------------------------------- TRUE! The officers were satisfied. And this I did for seven long nights, every night just at midnight, but I found the eye always closed, and so it was

сауна для похудения

impossible to do the work, for it was not the old man who vexed me but his Evil сауна для похудения Eye. A shriek had been heard by a neighbour during the night; suspicion of foul play had been aroused; information had been lodged at the police office, and they (the officers) had been deputed to search the premises. I loved the old man. I gasped

сауна для похудения

for breath, and yet the officers heard it not. -- they were making

сауна для похудения

a mockery of my horror!

сауна для похудения

It was A LOW, DULL, QUICK SOUND -- MUCH SUCH A SOUND AS A WATCH MAKES WHEN ENVELOPED IN COTTON. They heard! Now this is the point. Object there was none. Almighty God! Yes, he was stone, stone dead. The old man's terror must have been extreme! I had been too сауна для похудения wary for that. I scarcely breathed. -- this I thought, and this I think. The

сауна для похудения

disease had sharpened my senses,

сауна для похудения

not destroyed,

сауна для похудения

not dulled them. In the enthusiasm of my confidence, I brought 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.

сауна для похудения

I fairly chuckled at the idea, and perhaps he heard me, for he moved on the bed suddenly as if startled. Many a night, just at midnight, when all the world slept, it has welled up from my own bosom,

сауна для похудения

deepening, with its dreadful echo, the terrors that distracted me. Never before that night had I felt the extent of my own powers, of my sagacity. But anything was better than this agony! Yet the sound increased -- and what could I do?

сауна для похудения

-- and сауна для похудения now -- again -- hark! There entered three men, who introduced themselves, with perfect suavity, as officers of the сауна для похудения police. I arose

сауна для похудения

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

сауна для похудения

I talked more quickly, more vehemently but the noise steadily increased. сауна для похудения I took my visitors all over the house. 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. I was singularly at ease. The old man was dead. Passion there was none. A watch's minute hand moves more quickly than did mine. ALL IN VAIN, because Death

сауна для похудения

in approaching him had stalked with his

сауна для похудения

black shadow before him and enveloped the victim. So you see he would have been a very profound old man, indeed , to suspect that

сауна для похудения

every night, just at twelve, I looked in upon him while сауна для похудения he slept. Oh, you would have laughed to see how cunningly I thrust it in! 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. And then, when I had made an opening sufficient for

сауна для похудения

my head, I put сауна для похудения in a dark lantern all closed, closed so that no light shone out, and then I thrust in my head. As the bell sounded сауна для похудения the hour, there came a knocking at the street door. This, however, did not vex me; it would not be heard through the wall. And then when my head was well in the room I undid the lantern

сауна для похудения

cautiously

сауна для похудения

-- oh, so cautiously -- cautiously (for the hinges creaked), I undid it just so much that a single thin

сауна для похудения

ray fell upon the vulture eye. For a whole

сауна для похудения

hour I did not move a muscle, and in the meantime I did not hear him lie down. I tried how steadily

сауна для похудения

I could maintain the ray upon the eye. In an instant I dragged him to the

сауна для похудения

floor, and pulled the heavy bed over him. It was not a groan of pain or of grief -- oh, no! He had been saying to himself, "It is nothing but the wind in the chimney, it is only a mouse crossing the floor," or, "It is merely a cricket which has made a single chirp.

сауна для похудения

If still you think me mad, you will think

сауна для похудения

so no longer when I describe the wise precautions I took for the concealment of the body. Yet, for some minutes longer I refrained and stood still. It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain, but, once conceived, it haunted me day and night. -- tear up the planks! Upon

сауна для похудения

the eighth night I was more than

сауна для похудения

usually cautious in opening the door. -- they KNEW! " I kept quite still and said nothing. No doubt I now grew VERY pale; but I talked more fluently, and with a heightened voice. For his gold I had no desire. It grew louder,

сауна для похудения

I say, louder

сауна для похудения

every moment! Madmen know nothing. Now you may think that I drew back -- but no. I had my head in, and was about to open the lantern, when

сауна для похудения

my thumb slipped upon the tin fastening , and the old man sprang up in the bed, crying out, "Who's there? I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. сауна для похудения -- it is the beating of his hideous heart! I held the lantern motionless. Was it possible they heard not? would a madman have been so wise as this? -- no, no? I think it was his eye! I moved it slowly,

сауна для похудения

very, very slowly, so that I might not disturb the old man's sleep. With a loud yell, I threw open the сауна для похудения lantern and leaped into the room. I knew the sound well. I smiled, -- for what had I to fear? I saw it with perfect distinctness -- all a dull blue with a hideous veil over it that chilled 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. 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 noise was NOT within my ears. -- "Villains! And it was the mournful influence of the unperceived shadow that caused him to feel, although he neither saw nor heard, to feel the

сауна для похудения

presence of my head within the room. It increased my fury as the beating of a drum stimulates the soldier into courage. Above all was the sense of hearing

сауна для похудения

acute. I then replaced the boards so cleverly so cunningly, that no human eye

сауна для похудения

-- not even his -- could have detected сауна для похудения anything wrong. I took up three planks from the flooring of the chamber, and deposited all between the scantlings. I removed the bed and examined сауна для похудения the corpse. He had never given me insult. He had never wronged me. It grew louder -- louder

сауна для похудения

-- louder! I showed them his treasures, secure, undisturbed. -- here, here! I went down to open it with a light heart,

сауна для похудения

-- for what had I now to fear? It grew quicker

сауна для похудения

and quicker, сауна для похудения and louder and
