Montresor arrives at Fortunato's house. His plan is to lure him into the wine cellar to kill him. Before that, he has to convince Fortunato to go into the cellar.
Fortunato and Montresor reconnect and chat. Montresor talks about Amontillado and how he would love to drink with Fortunato. With convincing, Fortunato agrees.
Fortunato goes into a coughing fit. Montresor pretends to be concerned and tries to use reverse psychology to get him to leave. Guilted, Fortunato stays.
As they were walking, Montresor suddenly chains Fortunato. He is taken by surprise and screams, but his cries are heard by no one other than Montresor.
Montresor trapped Fortunato behind a wall and covered it. Fortunado thought Montresor was joking and began to laugh, until he began panicking. Montresor left him there until he was sure Fortunado was dead.
In Pace requiescat! Montresor thought to himself as he walked away from where he left the corpse, undisturbed for half a century.
