Alternative Ending to The Tell-Tale Heart

We were called at the midnight as there was a scream heard in the neighborhood. We went to the house where the scream was heard, and there was a pleasant man opened the door. We asked him what the scream was about and he said that it was him having a nightmare and told us that the owner is gone to the country. We told him that we just want to search the house as it is a precaution. He invited us in without a hesitation, in fact he was very welcoming.

We searched the house thoroughly as he guided us around the house. He even implied us to take our time and search each room carefully and attentively. After we cleared that nothing was out of the ordinary he insisted that we have a seat as we would be tired. He took us back to the old man’s room and brought three chairs and told us to be comfortable. Soon we were chatting away nicely and having a good old time. Suddenly out of nowhere wesaw the guy turning pale. At first I thought that my eyes were playing tricks on me. He started talking louder and became more animated by the second.

We decided to ignore him and keep talking, but he seemed to be getting crazier as the time passed. Deep down I was starting to suspect something. I decided to shake it off. Soon, he was pacing and I was started to detect something, as this was not someone stretching their legs as if they were hiding something. After the pacing stopped but for a second and that point he lost his temper, he swung the chair he was sitting on and broke it. After this, he yelled “Villains! Dissemble no more! I admit the deed!- tear up the planks! Here, here!-it is the beating of his hideous heart!” We were so fazed for couple of minutes because of the outburst and the little meltdown.

We finally got out of shock and started to tear up the floor boards where his chair was placed. When the floor boards were torn therewas not one, but three black bags. We carefully pulled them out,in order to notruin any evidence needed.
