During an Italian carnival Montresor runs into Fortunato. He offers to share a very nice bottle of Amontillado with him. but, this bottle is in his catacomb, it is late at night and Fortunato seems to have a little too much to drink.
Montresor tells us that Fortunato has made a insult against him and so he is planning to get revenge. Even though he doesn't tell us what Fortunato has done, he makes it sound like he will never be forgiven.
Montresor and Fortunato walk down into the dark and creepy catacomb. As the suspense builds Montresor keeps asking if Fortunato would like to turn back because he seems to not feel good, but Fortunato continues to drink wine as his cough medicine. He says he will not die from a cough , And Montresor says thats right you will not die from a cough
When they reach their destination there is no Amontillado but there is a hole in the wall. Montresor chains Fortunato inside the wall and begins to seal up the wall with bricks.
As the last few bricks are laid Fortunato screams for Montresor to stop but it is too late. Montresor has gotten his revenge, and Fortunato will soon be gone in the catacomb.
In the end, the narrator walks away. For half of a century, no person has disturbed him. RIP.
