Prompt: Bait

In Edgar Allan Poe’s ‘The Cask of Amontillado”, our main character, Montresor, lured Fortunato (ironically means “the fortunate one”) with a promise of Amontillado, a rare vintage wine.

Little did Fortunato knew, he ended up chained and buried alive behind a wall.

“For the half of a century no mortal has disturbed them. In pace requiescat!”
