"Go, and reform—or mark my words—some day, for your sins you will die and go to hell or Hadleyburg—TRY AND MAKE IT THE FORMER."
For the love of God, Montresor!
Sorry, wrong revenge story.OR IS IT?
A stranger passing through the honest and incorruptible town of Hadleyburg falls victim to some offense, and instead of walling up every one of the town's inhabitants inside a crypt with all the amontillado, he sets out to destroy them by more elaborate means.Because nobody fucks with Montresor.NOBODY, AHAHA.
Ok, so it's probably not the same character from Poe's story, but there's no reason that it couldn't be, is there?Yeah, that's what I thought.
Bonus points for including the line he could hear his microbes gnaw, the place was so still.
Also: This might be my first Mark Twain story.Might be.I may have read Tom Sawyer way way back in elementary school (probably abridged and illustrated), but I hardly think that counts, because I might just be thinking of the movie Tom and Huck.Whatever happened to Jonathan Taylor Thomas?
