If they lived, then great, if they died, so be it.
It all started decades ago when an A+ singer in an A+ band grew burnt out and tired of his life. He was doing drugs and drinking heavily and not healthy. He knew he needed a change but a very radical one. At the time, he was in a foreign country so he bribed a few people and his death was announced but this was fake. The singer in a phony identity adopted a gypsy lifestyle traveling around the USA. Not long after he befriended a well to do family in a midwestern state.
Once she got the will signed, the days of this A+/A list singer from an A list group were numbered. He was going to die. She was going to make sure of it. She wanted to make sure the singer didn't get married and have his new wife change the will. Our singer was about to leave her. She knew the singer didn't love her any longer.
