You need to try this Amontillado I got but,if you're too sick we don't have to go the catacombs...
Are you (cough cough cough) kidding lets go !
At the beginning of the story, Montresor wants vengeance for Fortunado's insults towards hi. But without getting caught.
Montresor knows that Fortunado loves wine. With this in mind, Montresor comes up with a plan for revenge....
Fortunato is afflicted with a cold and wanted to see the Amontillado that Montresor promised him at all costs, which falls right into Montresor's plan.In Montresor's plan he states the wine is under his house in the catacombs.
So Montresor gives his attendants explict orders to stay at his house but he knew they would leave. Using only a torch the men head down the the catacombs while Carnival is happening above them.
Walking down the winding stairs and wet floors, Fortunado's gait was wobbly, not only because he was sick but he was drunk and Montresor made sure to keep it that way.
The walls of the catacombs were making Fourtunato sicker and sicker by the moment. The niter infested walls shocked Fortunato but the men continued down the narrow halls searching for the "Amontillado".
