"I had told them that I should not return until the morning,and had given them explicit orders not to stir from the house"
"I continued ,as was my in to smile in his face, and he did not perceive that my to smile now was at the thought of his immolation"
"There were no attendants at home; they had absconded to make merry in honour of the time."( pg 3) Montresor makes the mood scary because he makes sure there isn't a person that would see the incident happen to the death of Fortunato.
This irony is dramatic because the readers know that Montresor wants to kill Fortunato with impunity. While Fortunato doesn't know what will happen to him.
"My heart felt sick; it was the dampness of the catacombs that made it so. I hastened to make an end of my labour. I forced the last stone into its position; I plastered it up."(Pg 7) This makes the mood disgusting and very sad because of the death of Fortunato .
