This storyboard does not have a description.
"My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met!"
"My heart grew sick; it was the dampness of the catacombs that made it so."
Ahhh! God help me!
"I continued, as was my wont, to smile in his face, and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation."
Fortunato is actually very unlucky because Montresor plans to seek revenge on him! Montresor considers himself the lucky one.
The reader expects Montresor's heart to feel sick because he killed Fortunato. Instead, he blames it on the dampness of the catacombs.
Fortunato is oblivious to Montresor's plans of revenge. The reader is aware the whole time. It is like watching a train wreck!
