That morning, there was something in the air that told him not to go. Normally he followed his instincts. So, normally, he wouldn't have gone. Instincts were everything in his line of work. Everything. It was the only way you qualified for what he did. Because if you didn't qualify, you'd be dead and gone. No one would ever find you. They were good at making people disappear. All those Missing Peoples cases that you hear about on tv? Most of them didn't qualify. David qualified. And David learned even before he got the job, that instincts were everything. He had even purposfully skipped his "interview" because his instinct told him not to go. That very day, the very hour he was supposed to be sitting down and talking to the boss man, the building exploded. He read about it on the feeds, 2 minutes after it happened. Bloggers and news sites alike, all buzzing about how 8 city blocks suddenly became a crater.

But something that morning told him not to go. But David ignored it.
