Abandoned Hospital

I talked to Daniel last night. It was a quick conversation due to the late hour and he seemed on edge about something. He had said that he wanted to talk but wanted to wait until today to meet up after work. Lucky for me the workday went by smoothly and quickly even with my anxiety about the errand I had to run today. I went outside after work and waited for Daniel in the parking lot as was planned, but he never showed up or called. That is so unlike Daniel. I gave him all the time I had to spare, but then I had to make my way to the abandoned hospital on the outskirts of the city before sunset. I was a little leery to go inside alone and then I heard another vehicle approaching which seemed odd under the circumstances. I was relieved to see it was Xander at least until he got out of his car and approached me. I've never seen him act that way towards me before. I didn't know whether to be hurt or offended. To make a long story short I talked him into going inside with me to look around and now I wish I hadn't. What I had found only deepened my worry for Daniel. Do you think it's better to know what is coming or be clueless?
