The First Story I Read

The Lottery by Shirley Jackson was the story I read. The people in the village have a tradition involving a black box where every head of house pulls out a paper and waits. The original tradition has been lost but it still going in this village. The village gathers together and the lottery takes 2 hours. There is one paper in the black box that is different then the other papers one of then had a black dot right in the middle of the paper. If you get that black dotted paper you lose the lottery but you also lose more.
