The Lottery is waiting to commence. The boys entertain themselves by placing lots of different rocks and stones in a pile, while the girls stand and watch.
The air is tense and the villagers are socialisly uneasly. Just as the Lottery is to begin, Tessie Hutchinson comes running into the circle. The Lottery can now begin.
Let's begin the Lottery!
Mr. Summers called the head of each household to come a pull a slip of paper from the black box. Old Man Warner presents his disagreement against other towns when the is told they no longer partcipate in the lottery.
Hutchinson! Your up!
Some villages don't do the lottery anymore.
Bill drew the black dot for his whole family. Now all members of the Hutchinson household must draw in the black box to see which recieves the black dot.
The Hutchinson's have the dot. Bill, your whole family must draw.
He didn't get long enough to pick, we all saw it!
Bill and his children don't draw the black dot. Tessie is the "lucky" winner of the loterry, and now the tension of the air has released except for one woman who felt like she couldn't breathe.
We don't have the dot!
Tessie is being cornered by her own family and the towns people. They have all grabbed stones ready throw at Tessie. The line of loyalty and selfishness are blurred. And that is the cruelty of the Lottery.
