on the clear and sunny Morning of June 27th, The village is preparing for the annual lotter.
this isn't fair!!!
Shortly after, Mr. Graves carries out a 3 leg stool. Mr. Summers, the lottery official, places a black box on top of the stool. the Black box is filled with papers in which the villagers would draw.
after every head of family has drawn a paper, Bill Hutchinson drew the slip with the Black dot. Tessie Hutchinson tries to defend her husband, saying he did not have enough time to draw a paper.
Mr. Graves dumps the slips out of the box and places 5 back in, one of which has a black dot on it. Tessie then draws the paper with the black dot on it. Despite her please, The village begins throng stones at her.
