One went by the name of Montresor, he was a drunk and everyone in the town saw him as a nobody, he had a soft spot, but secretly he was gentle and kind. The other man went by the name of Fortunato, whom is very wealthy and also a bit of a bully to the less fortunate people but he has learned to hid that side of him very well with his very apologetic personality. The two gentlemen ran into each other at a carnival that had come into town and instantly clicked with each other. Standing in line at the ticket booth Fortunato turned around in swift motion and accidently hit Montresor in the nose while looking around making sure no one else was looking him pulled out a wad of cash. “Are you alright? I’m terribly sorry sir!” Fortunato exclaimed. “It’s okay, accidents happen. I’m alright.” Montresor replied. But Fortunato still continued to be very apologetic towards Montresor and offer to buy him a drink. They think continued to talk for hours about life, families, cars, sports, and money. After a while Fortunato could see that Montresor has had one to many drinks he calls for a taxi and takes Montresor to his house. “Thank you for the drinks.” Montresor said. “Oh it’s no problem really.” Fortunato replied.
