Fortunato began coughing and didn't reply to Montresors words. After quite some time. Montresor urged Fortunato to turn back for his health, Fortunato refused
Montresor broke a bottle of wine and turned to Fortunato and said "Drink" "I drink" he said "to the buried that repose around us" "and i to your long life."
The two men continued to have conversation until the mentions of the the Masons came up Montresor has no idea what the man before him is speaking of so he pulls out a trowel from his shirt. Another word for a trowel is a mason. Once Fortunato sees this he yells. "you jest," he exclaimed, recoiling a few paces.
"Proceed," said Montresor "herein is the Amontillado. As for Luchesi-" "He is an ignoramus," interrupted Montresors friend.
Finally making it down to the bottom. Fortunato lifts the dull torch, endeavored to pry into the depth of the recess. Its termination the feeble light did not enable them to see.
After a few steps into the dark recess Montresor pushes Fortunato to the wall and chains him there. He secured the chains around Fortunato's waist and took a few steps back.
Montresor began to rebuild the wall in front of Fortunato's eyes. The an chained to the wall began shaking trying desperately to get free of the chains but he was successful. When at last the clanking subsided, he resumed building up the wall with out inturuption.
Finally on the last layer of stones the unlucky man to be trapped behind the wall says "A very good joke indeed-an exelent jest" "The Amontillado!" said Montresor but by this time of night it was beginning to get extremely late. The man known as Montresor didn't get an answer back so he threw his torch into the dark abyss then began finishing the wall once again. Fro half a century no mortal disturbed Fortunato's bones
