Its midnight and I couldn’t see a thing in this dark, but I followed through the tunnel with the odor. As soon as I take another step, I see this flash light pointed in my face. This was on the day of October 25, 2001, which was really an adamantine day for me, because I just got out of solving the problems from the 9/11 incident.
I am Robert Michaels an FBI agent at Washington D.C. I am the most efficacious, assiduous and the youngest agent in America. I am only 22 years old, if you are fascinated, how I am this young; well I graduated from high school when I was 16 years old. I graduated from college when I was 20 years old, and it took two years to get a job. Once I solve one case, Lieutenant Charles always gives me another one immediately; he does this all the time. Charles is really old and he is probably going to retire soon. He is about 62 years old and he has two children, and they both are engineers. He is also grandfather. Enough talking about my horrible lieutenant, I just hate him because he gives me too much work.

This might be the last case I have to solve to be a lieutenant. I work better alone, I don’t like anyone to work with me, because I can’t trust them.

Since you know more about me now, I can talk to you about the indurated day of my life. I am currently working on a humongous case which could turn my life all the way around. This case even involved the president of the United States; it was the case where I have to save him from the future terrorists’ attacks that will occur to the president.
