The Lottery

It was a cruel twist of fate, she questioned the entire game in itself, and that singled her out. Earlier in the story, they mention that whoever questions the Lottery is a fool, and crazy, and many strange things are associated with it. She chose the ticket with the black dot, but it was really destined that she would get it.
