Quantum Dissolve: Chapter Twenty Four Point Four. (The death of the Irwins)

Dusty and Irma Irwin rolled down the interstate in Dusty's beaten up old rust-bucket.

Suddenly, it exploded, in a gigantic gasoline plume that killed them both instantly.

Dr. Logan W. Herbert collapsed the antennae on his remote control, and snuck into the woods.

Jade Shade and Chokecherry were waiting for him in his windowless van.

"Bye bye, Dusty and Irma", Chokie said with satisfaction, her legs kicked up, and her hands behind her head.
She'd been through this whole death faking thing before.

"So, where did you get the corpses?", Jadie asked.

"I've got some friends in the morgue business, and homeless people don't all make it through winter", Dr. H answered calmly.

"Wait, if we're legally dead, are we still married?", Jadie asked, aiming a thumb at Chokie.

"You wanna be married? Fine, your new selves will be married".
Dr. H spoke into his watch.
"You heard it, Omneron, get right on that".

"Got it", the AI face said back.

"Trust me, the whole 'secret identity', deal was an anvil chained to your legs, you're going to be so much better off", Dr. H said as he started up the van.
"Now, on to the next phase".

"And that is?", Chokie asked.

Dr. H grinned, and did mock jazz hands.
