Cask of Amontillado
"My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. How remarkably well you are looking to-day. But I have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado, and I have my doubts."
"Amontillado, A pipe? Impossible! And in the middle of the carnival!"
"As you are engaged, I am on my way to Luchresi. If any one has a critical turn it is he. He will tell me --
"Luchresi cannot tell Amontillado from Sherry."
"I have no engagement; --come."
Thus speaking, Fortunato possessed himself of my arm; and putting on a mask of black silk and drawing a roquelaire closely about my person, I suffered him to hurry me to my palazzo.
The gait of my friend was unsteady, and the bells upon his cap jingled as he strode.
I took from their sconces two flambeaux, and giving one to Fortunato, bowed him through several suites of rooms to the archway that led into the vaults.
"Proceed," "herein is the Amontillado. As for Luchresi --"
"he is an ignoramus"
he stepped unsteadily forward, while I followed immediately at his heels. A moment more and I had fettered him to the granite.I soon uncovered a quantity of building stone and mortar. With these materials and with the aid of my trowel, I began vigorously to wall up the entrance of the niche. For the half of a century no mortal has disturbed them. In pace requiescat!
