Earl was so angry he was shaking, which is probably why he made the mistake he did. He tried to hit Chuck in the head. Chuck ducked and Earl tried to hit him again. Chuck kicked him to the most good. Earl bent forward to catch a knee in the face.
Dad ran in yelling for them to stop.
"It's stopped if Earl stays down!" said Chuck.
"What will become of us with brothers fighting?" asked his dad. "Earl's face is ruined! What did you hit him with?"
