One afternoon three men were sitting at a restaurant. One of the men named Caderousse was intoxicated. The other two named Ferdinand and Danglars were with him. Ferdinand loved his cousin named Mersedes and wanted to marry her.
Oh I love Mercedes so much, if only there was a way to get rid of Dantes.
Oh Edmond I love you.
But Mersedes was in love with a man named Edmond Dantes, and they were getting married in two weeks.
I love you too Mercedes.
We can use that against him.
Caderousse worked on the ship with Dantes so he knows a little secret about Dantes.
Yes, I can write a letter to the police using my left hand so that no one will know it is us writing.
Dantes is carrying a letter from Napoleon about his return from Elba.
The night before the wedding at the Family party the police show up.
Edmund Dantes, you are under arrest.
Haha the plan has worked perfectly.
Edmond was sent to prison where he was alone for 4 years. He never got a fair trial and built up rage for many years.
Ferdinand relentlessly tried to get Mercedes to love him, but she never would. She would always wait for her Dantes
