During Carnival in Italy, Montresor runs into me, and offers to share a very nice bottle of Amontillado wine with him. However, this bottle is in his catacombs. It is late at night but I am very ill.
Montresor claims that I have gravely insulted him, and is plotting to get his revenge. Although, he doesn't know that i want to die in the catacombs, Its my only wish.
Montresor takes me down into the dark and eerie wine vault. As suspense builds, Montresor keeps asking if I would like to turn back because I seem ill. I continue to drink wine to ease my cough.
When we reach our destination, there is no Amontillado, but there is a hole in the wall. Montresor shackles me inside, and begins to seal up the wall with brick.
As the last few bricks are laid, I tell Montresor the truth that I wanted to die, he is shocked. Montresor thought he has gotten his revenge. he didn't but that didn't stop him. He kept going and granted my wish.
I hear Montresor walk away with only the sound of his feet slowing going away as he leaves the catacombs.My jingling jester bells were echoing in the tomb. I rest peacefully accepting my fate as Montressors yells aloud,"rest in piece Fortunato".
