The Cask of Amontillado

The Cask of Amontillado, by Edgar Allen Poe

1) We are never told what Fortunato did or said to offend the narrator. Do you believe Fortunato really did insult him or was it largely in the narrator's imagination?

2) Is it possible, based on the last few sentences, that the narrator didn't intend to kill Fortunato, but only scare him? That he walled up Fortunato only after the man had died of fright?
