Finally, Montressor can cope with his plan. He chains up Fortunado inside a dark room, after he passes out. Its about 6 feet tall, 4 feet deep and 3 feet wide. Slowly, he begins to brick him in. And as Fortunado regains conciousness, they ensure in screaming at eachother.
On the 11th layer of brick, Fortunado is bricked in forever. But before placing the last brick, Montressor hears laughing. He thinks it is all a prank. He asks to be let out. Afterwards, all Montressor does is drop his torch in and plaster his new masonary.
It was said that no Mortal has messed with Fortunado's tomb for 50 years.
