"It's not fair! You didn't give him enough time to choose!"
At school, boys gathered rocks in their pockets. Most boys pick very smooth and round stones. Then they made a huge pile of rocks in the corner of the square, guarded by a group of boys so they wouldn’t be raided by the other boys. The girls were standing off to the side talking to each other and watching the boys.
Mr. Summers was calling names and they would draw their papers. Unless the men/father’s were unable to draw, it was the men who drew for their family. Everybody had to participate, even the new children.
The Hutchinson’s found out that their family had gained the black dot. Tessie was freaking out and was scared that she would draw the black dot. She tried to get her other daughter, Eva, draw with them, but Mr. Summers reminded her that women draw with their husbands.
Tessie Hutchinson reached in the box and grabbed a piece of paper, but she knew that she had drawn the black dot after her whole family had shown that their paper was clear. Her husband had to unfold her paper and showed that she did have the black dot.
Everybody gathered around Tessie and picked up the stones. Someone handed little Davy a stone too, but he was confused on what to do. As Tessie was calling out saying that nothing was fair, people started throwing rocks.
Tessie Hutchinson was in pain, stone were being thrown at her. They hit her face and all over her body. It was over and Tessie Hutchinson was dead. People started to dread and worry about next year's Lottery.
