How? Amontillado? A pipe? Impossible! And in the middle of carnival!
Montresor walks up to Fortunato and tells him about how he bought a cask of Amontillado and says he needs his opinion to see if it is a real Amontillado.
My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. How remarkably well you are looking today!But i have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado but i have my doubts
Montresor leads Fortunato down to the vaults and Fortunato gets a terrible cough and Montresor tried to convince him to go back but Fortunato refuses.
Come we will go back;your health is precious.You are rich, respected, admired, beloved; you are happy, as once I was.You are a man to be missed.For me it is no matter.we will go back;you will be ill,and i cannot be responsible.Besides,There is Luchesi-
Enough,the cough is mere nothing;it will not kill me. I shall not die of a cough.
Montresor sits and listens to the struggles of Fortunato in satisfaction
