My name is Montresor, the name of an old and honored family. A man by the name of Fortunato had wronged that name, and tonight he would suffer the retribution.
It was not yet dark when I met him on the street. He had drunk much this night, and I knew this would be the perfect opportunity for my revenge.
Using the ruse that I had acquired a cask of Amontillado, I lured Fortunato down to my vaults.
As we walked through the vaults, I offered Fortunato bottles of wine. He became more and more unsteady the longer we continued on.
Finally, we reached a small room. "Through there is the Amontillado" I told Fortunato. He went into the room uncertainly.
Once he was inside the room, I chained him to the wall and began to seal off the doorway. As he cried for his freedom, I began to feel remorse, but I continued with the task ahead until the doorway was completely sealed. May he rest in peace.
