The large warning signs should’ve been a clear indication to stay away, but Howard was much too interested in the abandoned industrial building to stay away. There was a bunch of weird technology that he was pretty excited to salvage. It took about ten trips to fill up the back of his pickup truck. He decided that he’d take just one more trip inside, then he’d be done for the day.
It was an area surrounded by warning signs and a broken chain link fence. There was something weird inside that was glowing. There wasn’t any power in the building, so Howard started to imagine the device was some sort of new, experimental power source. When he reached out and touched it, everything went dark.
He awoke some time later, still in the abandoned building with the object still glowing an eerie yellow. But something was different -- very different. It was his body. Instead of being the average nerdy tech guy that he once was, he was now a gorgeous woman with the clothes to match. That device certainly wasn’t an energy source; Howard’s best guess was that it was some sort of transformation device. He could go back in and try to touch it again. Maybe he’d be transformed back...or maybe he’d be transformed into something worse. If he touched it again, would he even remain human?
Of course, he had quite a bit of stolen, unknown tech in his truck. If this company had been working on the kind of stuff that could do this, he might be able to use the stuff he had stolen to recreate the device but with a little bit more control. Maybe he could use what he had taken in order to get himself back to normal.
