Chapter Three: Autopsy

Kathy booked a flight immediately. She arrived at the city morgue, and identified the body.

The pathologist informed her of the cause of death. It was a catastrophic stroke. An embolism burst in his brain, killing him instantly. Otherwise Jim had been in perfect health. He said that it was like a small explosive had gone off in his brain.

Kathy had no idea why she was the one to receive him, other than what the authorities were telling her. She was the only person he had been known to have any contact with.

“Why am I here;” she wondered, not about the process. She was wondering about Jim’s intentions. This whole thing had been orchestrated. She knew that it was his plan she was following.

There were aspects to the administrative process that she was engaged in that were not exactly normal, or even legal, but the officials she was engaged with were acting under orders. The judge, the medical examiner, other governmental functionaries she was forced to deal with, thhe were operating under some kind of pressure, but they themselves were not quite sure what the exigencies were.

There were plans within plans, and the person pulling the levers was here on the slab with her.

It was inscrutable.

There was a level of caution at work that reminded her of her own handlers. There were multiple levels of misdirection and masking, so as to keep the objectives of their research hidden from Kathy.

As far as the locals knew, Kathy was simply the only person the authorities could connect Jim to, it was irregular, but it was what it was, and that was enough

Chapter One: Notice

Kathy knew she would never see Jim again. Though, she was not certain. She felt his passing like a moment of turbulence. When it was over; it was like she was in a vacuum.

She knew he had died before she received the call informing her that his body was found by the flight attendants.

Chapter Two: Anonymous

Jim did not carry ID. He never did. To society at large he barely existed, he left only the smallest of paper trails to define him.

He was off the grid.

There was nothing on his phone to tell anyone who he was, only the record of the calls he had recently made to Kathy.

Chapter Four: Family

Kathy would not have believed it possible, but Jim was more mysterious in death, than he was in life.

She was fascinated by the developments, and full of sadness. All that was fine, except that suddenly she was responsible for his body, she had no idea what he might want her to do with it.

Chapter Five: Finding

It took time, and some detective work.

Given her abilities Kathy was typically able to glean any information she wanted from the people around her, but Jim was a phantom, as much of an enigma in death as he was in life.

When they located his residence, a judge gave Kathy access to the apartment.

Chapter Six: De Ja Vu

In all of the years that she knew him, Kathy had never been to Jim’s home. He was an intensely private person, and to her knowledge he had never moved. Nevertheless, it was exactly as she had visualized it, scant, and bare.

He was a Spartan, an aesthetic. It was extreme. It made her uncomfortable.

Chapter Seven: Memory

There was not a moment of her life that Kathy could not recall; she remembered everything. Her contextualization was holistic, and it was as fast as lightening.

She was perfect.

Now that she was standing in Jim’s apartment, she knew that he had lied to her about a great many things.

She was not surprised.
