The Lottery

The Lottery took place on a nice morning. The local kids get there first and start collecting rocks. More so the boys. Then the first adults start arriving not to long after. The Lottery was to pick a sacrifice to have good crops. Certain men came up and took a paper. One person had the correct paper and the wive was outraged! So they had two kids pick out two more papers and whatever one that had the ticket that had the dot or something was the sacrifice. The sacrifice was for good crops in the upcoming year. I think they pelted the rocks to kill the chosen sacrifice. (So that's why they got the rocks before the ceremony started). I didn't really get this story so I read it twice to double check.
