Nathan is 19. He's mixed race, tall, slim and fit. He has a No 1 haircut and is dressed in a T-shirt, tracksuit bottoms and trainers. He has a silver chain round his neck. His mobile rings. He speaks quickly: "Four on four, cuz, yeah… Wait a second." He asks how much longer we're going to be. Maybe another 30 minutes. We're sitting at a table outside a café on Mare Street, next to Hackney Town Hall. I sip my drink. "Thirty minutes," he says and ends the call. He looks at me, a slow look, unemphatic. "Customer." What's four on four, I ask. "He wants four 10-bags of dubs and four 10-bags of B." Dubs? B? "Dubs are white drugs – crack and cocaine. B is brown, obviously, heroin." Nat is a drug dealer. He never refers to his merchandise as drugs. He calls it food.
