This story starts out in a small rural town. It is a calm beautiful day outside. Families are gathering for the lottery. While kids are getting stones into a pile.
The story starts to take a turn for the worst when the Hutchinson family picks their slips. Tessie notices that her husband Bill has the slip with a mark on it. She causes a scene and says it is not fair because he was rushed to pick.
Please, this isn't right
The family is called up and the slips are put back into the black box. Every member of the Hutchinson family has to re-pick from the box.
When they all re-pick the kids smile as they see their slips and then Tessie and Bill pick last. Tessie sees that she now has the slip that Bill once had.
Tessie begins to scream and shout about how this is not fair. But, the other villagers want to get this over with and start surrounding her with the stones that the kids gathered.
They start to throw the stones at Tessie as she screams and shouts. And they continued until she was dead.
