Montresor lures Fortunato into the dark wine vault and keeps asking if Fortunato would like to go back because he is ill. Fortunato just continues to drink wine to stop his cough.
When they both get there, there is a hole in the wall just for Fortunato. Montresor makes Fortunato get inside and begins to cover the hole with bricks.
While Fortunato is screaming for Montresor to stop, it is too late. Montresor has already covered half of the hole.
