At the beginning of the story, Montressor is a bitter man who wants revenge against an associate of his named Fortunato. "At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitely settled-but the very definitiveness with it was resolved precluded the idea of risk."
Montressor meets Fortunato at the carnival and tells him about the Amontillado that he bought. Then invites him to see it. "I said to him, "My dear Fortunato you are luckily met.
Montressor and Fortunato start their walk in the cattacombs. "I took from the scones a flambeax, and giving one to Fortunato, bowed him through several saites of rooms to the archway that led to the vault."
They take a rest from their walk and montressor chains up Fortunato. "In an instant he had reached the extremity of the niche, and finding his progress arrested by the rock stood stupidly, bewildered."
Montressor chains up Fortunato and leaves him for dead. A succession of loud shrill screams, bursting from the throat of the chained form, seemed to thrust me violently back.
Montressor leaves Fortunato. In pace requiscat!
