  4. Why did he decide not to take the short cut?
  5. After the initial chase, what two reasons could lead to Robbie thinking that he was safe?
  6. Why did the twins stop attacking Robbie?
  7. Do you think Erica was older or younger than Robbie?
  8. 8.   What do you think he meant by: she shouted, with a ferocity that Robbie had only ever seen reserved by him?
