Then he met carter Deton, that was the turning point of the summer with no friends, they played together every since then.
Before they met carter used to live in minnesota, but he recently moved to kansas.
After carter and joe were playing together, carter was getting meaner and meaner, “go get the ball!” he said. “Go away but sniffer!”
At this point, joe was having enough of the mean name calling.
“Stop calling me names carter” he said, “and what if i don't?” carter said back, “then i won't play with you any more!” joe snapped “ok then, then were friends no more!” carter then hit joe in the face, that soon started into all out brawl
