She reminds Will of how he once longed to look over the plains, but if he went to the plains himself he would lose the pleasure of looking. He applies this theory to marrying Marjory, believing if they wed he would lose all of the pleasure of her friendship. When he explains this to Marjory she is furious, but soon decides Will is right. They remain friends until Marjory marries someone else, and some years later she passes away.
When he is an old man, Will awakes in the middle of the night and he seems to hear the sounds and people of his past — he hears Marjory, his parents and remembers his youth. Will goes outside and finds that Death has come to the inn to take him away. Death tells Will he has long waited for someone who has never really lived at all. Will responds that he has waited for Death ever since Marjory passed away.

The door opens and a face looks in at him and smiles before withdrawing. Markheim resists, however: while he knows he has done wrong, he does not wish to collude with evil. Markheim confronts the maid, telling her he has killed the dealer and that she should find the police.

The family has a strange history: the Senora married beneath her, or possibly never married, and madness runs in the family. She has two children, Felipe and Olalla. The Senora is strangely vacant, content with the sensuous pleasures in life. The narrator finds the house and its occupants strange. One night he hears terrible screams but finds he is locked in his room. He is also haunted and enchanted by a painting of a beautiful woman.
The painting leads him to believe that physically the family are unchanged from their predecessors — mentally, however, they seem to have degenerated. One day he meets Olalla and is instantly attracted to her. He loves her and urges her to leave with him. She, however, fears that she will go mad as her relatives have done, and that he should leave at once.
