"Oh, so now you're gonna threaten me, right?" Hakeem challenged, his frustration at the past month's events fueling his anger. "You haven't done nothing except dis me since I got here. Go ahead, hit me," he goaded, shoving Savon back away from his face.
"That's it!" Savon barked, charging Hakeem like an enraged lion.
