It was June 27th a nice and clear morning with a bright blue sky and a sunrise today was the Lottery Day that only happens once a year. For other places lotteries take more than one day but here it took less than 2 hours. Dickie Delacroix was colecting rocks for later that day.
Everyone pick out a piece of paper from the basket and once evryone unfolds their paper, Bill Hutchinson. He was so scared and sad.
Everyone that lived there it didn't matter if they were even family pick up a stone or rock and had to throw it at Bill, he was devastated.
Tessie then also opened her paper, when he unfolded it her face filled up with devastation, although she was happy she won something she knew she was going to get stones thrown at her.
Everyone in the neighborhood went to gather rocks to throw at Tessie they looked for perfect flat rocks that are just right for throwing, Tessie was still terrified.
After everyone collected rocks tons of people started throwing them at her getting more intense and started to hurt her more.
