Celebrity

It had well over two years since the Great Shift, and it surprised Luke that people still cared about what he did. Sure, he swapped into the body of a celebrity; he understood why people were interested at first. But he had no desire for fame. He kept doing his old job as a bartender and kept a low profile. Still, once and a while, a former fan would pop up or a camera would try to ambush him for an interview. When he got a tattoo, he couldn’t believe the stories that popped up in the papers. The same thing happened after he gained a little weight.

It was weird.

He had no desire to be famous, but he guessed being swapped into a famous body meant that he didn’t have a real choice. People were really interested in “Where are their bodies now” stories in the media. There were certainly plenty of folks who milked that opportunity to its fullest. Luke just happened to not be among them. All he wanted was some peace and quiet.
