Ever since the Transformation Virus started spreading, people rarely left their homes for fear of being infected. Telecommuting became the norm and roads, bus stations, and airports were often vacant. As the virus spread, many workers soon realized they couldn’t be infected twice and some people returned to work. On the other hand, some thought they could beat the virus. Ed had invested a lot in the latest technologies that claimed to block the virus. Every time he went out on the street, he always wore a mask. It had worked fairly well, and he started to go out longer and longer in preparation for a business trip to Tokyo. He felt sick in the cab on the way to his private jet, but he shrugged it off. However, by the time he landed, it was obvious the Transformation Virus had finally gotten him. He was no longer the man he once was -- he was now a rather skinny and attractive Asian woman. Considering some reports of people’s changes, he didn’t think his was bad at all. In fact, he was already planning ways he could leverage it the upcoming meeting. His head was so engrossing in planning, that he didn’t even remember to take off his mask. Now that he was infected, it was completely worthless!
