It was still pretty hard to believe. After Greg had finished up on the witness stand of the high profile case, the government’s lawyers had him quickly escorted outside into a van. He was driven to a safe house where the procedure took place. Only a small number of people knew that the witness relocation program had such a service and only a select few ever qualified. Greg was one of the few. At the safe house, his mind was transfered into a new body. He was given a folder with information about his new life. He was now a woman by the name of Ellie Chan. She had gone brain dead a few years back, but the government had preserved her body. Greg felt weird about the fact that it was his body now being preserved somewhere in this building -- with Ellie’s brain now inside. He tried not to think about it as he read over the notes. But he was constantly distracted; it felt weird for him, being a woman now. He wondered if he should have refused to come forward or refused to testify. He knew it was the right thing to do, but if he didn’t, he’d still have his own body and his own life.
