Mr.Summers brought out the black box for the lottery. It has been tradition for each man/head of household to pick a slip of paper and see if they won the lottery.
All heads of households recieved their slip of paper and were ready to open them up. As everyone opened it up, Mr.Hutchinson realized that he got the black dot.
Since Mr.Hutchinson's family won the lottery, each family member must pick another slip of paper.
Mrs.Hutchinson got the black dot on her slip of paper. She is the "winner" of this years lottery.
Mr.Hutchinson held up Tessie's paper to show everyone she got the black dot. Everyone cleared away so Tessie was in the center of the area. The village people began to grab their stones and were ready.
Tessie tried her hardest to not be stoned but knew that there was no escaping. As everyone gathered their stones, Tessie stood in the cleared area and tried to hold out her hands desperately. The crowd began to stone Tessie an everyone was upon her.
