Fortunato was never the kind of person who knew no to be the boss. 1839, 7:18 pm in Paris France Montresor was assigned to write a paper for the news the next week. Montresor really doesn't have a idea what he's doing so, he is thinking about someone who knows about the news, ideas, putting together things and writing. Montresor is thinking about everyone except his not so good friend Fortunato. Montresor was thinking all night about someone other than him but, he couldn't.
