Rising Action 2
Fortunado you're cough is getting worse. We must turn around.
Enough, the cough's a mere nothing; it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough.
In 17th century, Italy, Montresor, claims that Fortunado has gravely insulted him. Montresor is plotting to get his revenge. Although, he doesn't tell the reader what Fortunado has done, he makes it known that it was unforgivable.
Montresor runs into Fortunato, 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 and Fortunato seems ill.
Ha Ha Ha good joke. May we have many laughs about this. Now let us be gone.
Montresor lures Fortunato down into the dark and eerie wine vault. As suspense builds, Montresor keeps asking if Fortunato would like to turn back because he seems ill. Fortunato continues to drink wine to ease his cough.
When they reach their destination, there is no Amontillado, but there is a hole in the wall. Montresor shackles Fortunato inside. Fortunato begins to scream and Montresor screams back. Then Montresor begins to seal up the wall with bricks,
As the last few bricks are laid, Fortunato begins to realize what is happening and thinks its all a joke. Montresor keeps building up the wall but Fortunato screams for him to stop, but it is too late Montresor has enacted his revenge
Yes, let us be gone.
Montresor walks away with only the sound of Fortunato's jingling bells echoing in the tomb. He replaces the bones of the crypt. In the end, he claims that no one has disturbed them for 50 years; he has gotten away with his plot.
