The story begins with Montresor telling us about his anger. His anger is directed at Fortunado for an unforgivable crime. He wants revenge and for Fortunado to pay. He then lets us know that he has a plan, but won't tell us exactly what it is yet. With that he leaves to the carnival.
When Montresor arrives at the carnival he is approached by Fortunado. Then the plan goes into action. Montresor tells Fortunado that he has found an amontillado when he hasn't then. Then he says he wants Luchresi to make sure its authentic. Knowing Fortunados skill in wine tasting Momtresor is sure this will anger him. As expected Fortunado refuses and says he will taste the wine. With that they leave to get the wine.
The fake Amontillado is supposedly in the catacombs. When they arrive Fortunado begins to cough and has trouble stopping because he is allergic to the mold covered walls. Instead of turning back he begins to use wine to cure his cough supplied by Montresor as part of his plan.
Shall we turn backl?
When they finally arrive, Fortunado is to drunk to realize their is no Amontillado. He is easily locked up by Montresor unaware to whats happening to him.
Huh? Whats happening to me? Montresor?
As Montresor began to conceal Fortuandos certain death the wine was wearing off. He started to scream begging to be spared. Montresor just laughed and paused to listen to his screams.
Stop it! Ahhhhh Montresor! What are you doing!
Finishing his work Montresor looks at the now sealed wall. Suddenly feeling guilt, he pauses. Deciding the feeling is from the damp conditions he ignores it. Listening to the fading of Fortunado's jingling jester bells Montresor walks away. As he's leaving he says the words "In pace requiescat"
