The well known Fortunato had done me wrong, and his debt must be paid! Today, was the night of an eventful carnival, and I knew this was the perfect time to lure the already drunk Fortunado deep within the catacombs. Where I will offer this Menace his favorite liquor, Amontillado.
Fortunato, my dear friend, come with me to celebrate this joyous celebration with some Amontillado!
Amontillado! *Hic* I love Amontillado! Lead the *Hic* way!
But Fortunato, the vaults are damp and quite cold! I see that you are not well at the moment, and I fear that the catacombs may do you some harm!
Leading Fortunato into the catacombs was not a difficult task in the slightest. This caused me to lack any feeling of remorse for a clueless man such as he. Gaining his trust was quite easy, I must say. SHowing false concern for a man such as he led Fortunato to give full faith in me.
A mere cold cannot harm a man as strong as I. *Hic* Hurry, take me the Amontillado you so claim to have paid for! I want to see if you have not been tricked for your money!
The catacombs were indeed cold, so I chose to offer Fortunato some Medoc to warm his spirits. This led him to put more trust in me. So much so, that he began to reveal his affiliation with the Masons.
Yes, of course I am from the Masons! I may not know the gesture, but I do hold the Masonic Trowel. However, this chit chat matters not. We must hurry through the catacombs The Amontillado cannot wait for us any longer!
Are you not from the Masons? Surely, you jest with the lack of recognizing my gesture with the Medoc.
It took some time, but we eventually made it to the 'Amontillado room'. He was a bit incredulous on the storage location of this particular Amontillado, however, he was drunk enough to believe the majority of the things I say. This means that I am very close to getting the sweet taste of revenge. "Nemo me impune lacessit." As my family says. Fortunato will pay for the sins he has lain upon me.
Come, Fortunato! The Amontillado is very close! Just enter the room on the right here, and we will be able to savor the delicious liquor on this joyous festival night!
I will not lie, I was a bit skeptical of your Amontillado claim. However, you have never done me wrong before, so I trust your judgment.
When Fortunato finally stepped inside the room and reached the wall, I took my chance and grabbed the nearest chains! I chained him to the stone wall, ignoring his pleas of confusion for the lack of Amontillado. As I was doing this, an exhilarating feeling swept through my body, almost like an adrenaline rush was fueling me!
Fortunato, you fool. There was never any Amontillado! You have done me wrong, and I am here to correct that! I trust that you won't return to the festival, hm?
What is it that you're doing Montressor? What about the Amontillado? Where is the Amontillado?
Despite imploring me for his escape, I left the dear Fortunato in the catacombs. Where he remained, undisturbed, for half a century.
