This extract from Malorie Blackman's novel, Double Cross, is a dialogue between two people engaged in criminal activities. 

One, the narrator, seems to have been driven by a need for money to carry something illegal (in this extract we don't know what) and is asking his acquaintance, Dan, some questions before he delivers his mysterious package.

To the narrator's alarm, Dan suggests he arms himself with a knife and the ensuing dialogue highlights escalation in weapon-carrying. The extract ends with an open-ended situation ideal for classroom speculation.
