The reader anticipates that Montresor is trying to do something to Fortunato once Montresor mentions wine after seeing that Fortunato is clearly drunk.
Montresor! Good evening, my friend.
My dear Fortunato!... I was just thinking of you...I have bought a full cask of a fine wine that they tell me is Amontillado. But...
As Montresor leads Fortunato to the vaults of his palace, the mood begins to turn dark as they pass by all the bones that belonged to past members of the Montresor family. The reader may ask why Montresor had brought Fortunato to a place where piles of bones may lay everywhere.
Montresor continues to give Fortunato more wine on top of the Amontillado that he promised him. The reader may be intrigued by Montresor's strange actions and would want to continue reading.
Here, Fortunato. Drink some of this fine Medoc. It will help to keep us warm. Drink!
Thank you, my friend...
After Montresor brought Fortunato to the "vault" where he had promised to give him the Amontillado, Montresor began to close up the entrance with the rocks he threw aside before to make the entrance.
Montresor! What are you doing?
As Fortunato finalized his plan to get revenge on Montresor, the reader is aware of Montresor's final cries of help. After this, what could happen next? Would someone find Montresor's bones? Would Fortunato be charged for murdering Montresor?
Finally, we learn that no one had found the location of Montresor's body , as Fortunato stated that for "half a century... no human hand had touched them [Montresor's bones]."
