Storyboard Text

  • As I said these words I busied myself among the pile of bones of which I have before spoken. Throwing them aside, I soon uncovered a quantity of building stone and mortar. With these materials and with the aid of my trowel, I began vigorously to wall up the entrance of the niche.
  • I had scarcely laid the first tier of the masonry when I discovered that the intoxication of Fortunato had in a great measure worn off...I laid the second tier, and the third, and the fourth; and then I heard the furious vibrations of the chain.
  • It was now midnight, and my task was drawing to a close. I had completed the eighth, the ninth and the tenth tier. I had finished a portion of the last and the eleventh
  • there remained but a single stone to be fitted and plastered in. I struggled with its weight; I placed it partially in its destined position. But now there came from out the niche a low laugh that erected the hairs upon my head.
  • "Fortunato!"
  • No answer. I called again --"Fortunato!"
  • I hastened to make an end of my labour. I forced the last stone into its position; I plastered it up. Against the new masonry I re-erected the old rampart of bones.
  • "Ha! ha! ha! --he! he! he! --a very good joke, indeed --an excellent jest. We will have many a rich laugh about it at the palazzo --he! he! he! --over our wine --he! he! he!"
  • For the half of a century no mortal has disturbed them. In pace requiescat!
