Karl could see the bright light from miles away over the horizon, but it was so quick and so massive that he couldn’t do anything to avoid it. When it hit him, it felt like a ton of bricks knocking him to his feet. The wind was knocked out of him and he felt woozy, but he began to pick himself up. The first thing he noticed was that he was now inside instead of out. At first, he wondered if he had been brought to a hospital, but then he thought he’d wake up in a bed rather than on the floor. That’s when he noticed the odd feeling of his body. Of course, the body he now had didn’t belong to him and describing himself with words like “his” and “him” now felt odd as well -- the body he had was clearly a woman’s. Karl had no idea that the light that did this to him was a world wide phenomenon that would come to be known as the Great Shift.
