Fortunoto and Montresor are in the catacombs and Fortunato is drunk and doesn't realize what is coming for him. He saw a hole in the wall and thought it would be fun to get in it and be chained up.
Fortunoto is in the hole in the wall all chained up and thought it was a joke . He is to drunk to stay awake so he fell asleep since he was also ill. Montreser starts to brick him in there and Fortunata starts to make noise so he stopped and started to think.
Fortunato is half way bricked up and he woke up and thought it was all a joke and told Montreser to undo it and he didn't.Fortunato realizes that he is going to be stuck in there for the rest of his life and he falls to the ground in the hole. When Montreser gets done he said " his feels sick". He puts in the last brick and left and nobody went down to the catacombs for 50 years.
