It’s June 27th and it’s a warm sunny day. All the villagers in the village are gathering around for their yearly lottery. Everyone’s just making chit-chat or playing before the lottery starts.
They had started the lottery and everything was going good, but then Bill Hutchinson picked the piece of paper with a black dot on it. His wife Tessie was very upset and started yelling that it wasn’t fair.
After Tessie was done yelling the whole family was called up to pick out of the box again. There were five slips of paper and one had a black dot on it.
The whole family picked a slip and all of them were blank, except Tessie’s.
Tessie gets very upset and starts yelling once again. Then everyone in the town square begins to pick up stones.
As Tessie screams she gets hit with a stone. Everyone in the village surrounded her with stones in their hands.
