Joe smiled sarcastically. “What does your dad know about anything? He’s not even around. Right? That’s why you and your mom came to Odyssey. I’ve heard all about it. Your dad doesn’t like you, so he left you.” Mark threw a wild punch that grazed the side of Joe’s face. “You’re going to be sorry for that,” Joe shouted, tackling Mark. They fell into the dirt, tossing up a cloud of dust as they rolled over each other, struggling to pin the other one underneath.
