  • It ain't fair!
  • Then, the lottery starts, and Bill Hutchinson's family is picked, which means that an adult now needs to be chosen. This leads Tessie Hutchinson to argue, because her family got picked, which means that the lottery is most likely bad.
  • Resolution
  • After Tessie argues, it ends up that she gets picked out of her family for the lottery, and based on her reaction, we can tell that the lottery isn't good. She reacts with more arguing that saying that Bill wasn't given enough time to pick his envelope.
  • Next, the townspeople gather stones from where the children put them, and the reader knows that the lottery could end up hurting someone. Then Tessie is forced to the town square, as she says that the lottery isn't fair.
