The next morning the winter sun came through the window and the house felt nice and warm again.Mr White felt better and he smiled at his wife and son.The family sat down to have breakfast and they began to talk about the day.The monkey's paw was on a little table near the window, but nobody looked at it and nobody thought about it．"I'm going to the shops this morning," Mrs White said."I want to get something nice for dinner．Are you going to come with me?" she asked her husband."No, I'm going to have a quiet morning. I'm going to read," her husband answered."Well, I'm not going to go out this evening," Herbert said,"so we can go to bed early tonight. We were very late last night.""And we aren't going to have stories about monkey's paws!" Mrs White said.She was angry. "Why did we listen to your friend?" she asked her husband."A monkey's paw can't give you things!"she stopped but the two men did not answer her."Thirty thousand pounds!" she said quietly. "We needed that money."
