The tears ran down my face, my neck, wetting the top of my blouse. My hiccups overwhelmed me. I felt like my lungs would burst.

Today, Violet and I met in her room, and Violet confessed to me that she was planning on escaping tonight.

The villagers blind acceptance of the lottery allowed a ritual murder to become a custom to the town. They were afraid to change their customs even though there was no one forcing them to change.
