Roughly based on this interactive story.
Randall had never been popular in school, and things had gotten even lonelier in the past few months since his best friend Tim died in a accident. He often tried not to think about it. As he walked home alone one day, a young woman approached him. Randall thought this was odd since no one ever even noticed him, particularly not women.
“Randall,” the woman in purple said, “I’ve got a secret to tell you.”
Randall was quite surprised the woman knew his name. She continued, “I know this is going to sound weird, but it’s me. It’s Tim.”
Randall’s face went white, “You’re messing with me. Tim’s dead.”
“I know. I was in a car accident. But the doctors were able to save my life my putting my brain in this body. The only condition was that I am not allowed to tell anyone. But keeping that secret, even from my parents, it’s killing me. I needed to tell at least one person. And the doctors will never know I told you; they just won’t. We can even hang out just like before. I am having trouble living this woman’s life. I just need a small piece of who I was before. Come on, let’s go play some video games.”
Randall wasn’t quite sure. Part of him still thought he was being messed with, but playing video games with a pretty girl still seemed like a good idea.
