Reflecting on the Great Shift several years later, Hiroshi put on the Hello Kitty outfit he so often wore and thought about it all. It was amazing how having a different body had changed who he was so much. He was confident; he was comfortable. He could have never imagined using such words to describe himself before the Shift. No, before the Shift he was shy and nerdy. He was shunned, and now he was popular. People avoided a bubbly fun-loving guy with a Hello Kitty obsession, but a girl with those same traits? Well, there were some days his phone now rang off the hook. And it was all thanks to the Great Shift.
