the noise

Its 1 in the morning. Every night the same strange tapping noise comes from the apartment above and to the left.

It excites and interests me.

It's a murderous tramp scratching through your ceiling, very slowly so as not to alarm you. He needs three more nights to complete his work, on the third night he will emerge. You have met him once before, actually, on a train. He was rather keen on you. You will not be leaving Chicago.

But! Imperceptible will come to your funeral, etc etc.
