The parents gather around and talk while their kids collect rocks. The adults are just smiling at jokes that are being said. They are also getting ready for the lottery
Everyone gathers at the Lottery. Mr Summers, the one who conducts the Lottery, has a black box in his hand, and everyone kept their distance as he walked through the crowd. Mr Summers then put the slips in the black box.
Mr Summers calls every man of a family to come up at draw a slip. When every man was done drawing a slip, they opened their slips. Bill Hutchinson opens his slip, and has a black dot.
Each member of the Hutchinson family has to draw a slip now. Tessie complains that it isn't fair. Mr Summers continues the Lottery though.
Tessie draws a slip with a black dot on it. Mr Summers calls out that Tessie has the slip with a black dot.
Everyone gathers around Tessie, and grab rocks. Tessie is screaming as they throw the rocks at her.
